Hold the open hose end higher than the tank, plugged or not it won't leak.

Whittle a stick to the right size, put it in and put a hose clamp around it. You will have a small loss of fuel as you are first unhooking the line but can use a container to catch it.

Drained the oil in my rearend on the the Eagle 10.  I took a couple of pictures of the magnetic plug.  It seemed like a lot of metal, but after scraping in off the magnet it seems about the same as it was the last time I changed the oil.  There were no big chunks.  1st pic is dirty, 2nd is cleaned.

The oil still had some golden look to it and smelled like gear oil.  It has been about 35k miles since the last change.  The book calls for 19 qts of 85-140w oil.  Bought some at NAPA and will pour it in Friday after I get back from an out of town commitment, so it will drain all week.

I did drive the coach before draining.  The oil was warm and flowed well when I pulled the plug.

Have you checked the front leveling valve? Seems like a remember there is a leveling valve for the front and perhaps in the space for the spare tire.

Hi, well the relay valve is on the way.  Bought 50' of hose and 20 ferruels, and it's time to move on to the next problem.  I but in new bags on the rear with plates, and new air lines from the valves.  When the bus is aired up it sits level from side to side as it should.  When I shut the bus off the passenger side deflates in about 20 minutes while the driver side takes a few hours.  I've checked the fittings, lines, and the bag to mounting surfaces with soapy water and cannot find any leaks.  What am I missing?Huh

Vise grips would work and I even have two of them.  I guess it really doesn't matter too much if I wreck the fuel lines as I need new ones that are longer anyhow.  I used vise grips last month to seal off a gas line on a mower, but I knew the line had to be replaced then too.
