Our fans have the auto close feature.  Didn't like it.  We finally put covers over them.  What happens is this.  It starts to rain and the vents close.  The sensor dries out and the vent opens.  It's still raining and the vent closes again. This goes on and on.  We call it the dance of the vents. Try it with two vents. We don't trust the vents up in wind either.  They really seem to flop a lot.  So we bought covers.

Not to be a fussbudget...how are you being kept abreast of these circumstances....has there been any damages that would make moving the coach not safe or easy ?

Could not who is providing updates help you > could they help who ever might ?

Gumpy, thanks for the info.  Can you explain 'safe' with regards to this campground?  I thought the place we brought it to would be safe with 8' high walls, but I've learned that they don't (seem to) have security paying attention to the property 24h/day.  If it's a campground, then how are they avoiding breakins for people who aren't occupying their vehicles?  What I think would be ideal is a storage facility that actually watches over their space, though perhaps that's too much to ask, and just getting the bus out of the metro-NOLA area will be enough.

Now that the door window is smashed in, though, it seems that the bus is a much bigger target for an easy breakin, unless I can find someone to go bolt a panel over the hole.

Donald- Although I can understand your point, I do use mine on the flats often.  There are times when I feel like I've failed in some way if I have to step on the brake pedal.

I felt the same way until my buffer switch failed LOL (Thought it was just me)

I have a 1/2 inch electric impact wrench that will do up to about 250 ft/lbs of torque.  After breaking lugs with the torque multiplier, the wrench will spin the lugs off.  I spin them back on the same way and hand torque the rest.

That said, I do this if I want to work on something that requires tire removal--generally at home.  Although I could do it on the road for a tire change, I agree with Tom about leaving that to the road service professionals.

I have had several comprehensive insurance claims over the years and have never had a related rate increase.  Collision or liability is a different story.  Once a hit and run driver smacked into my wife's car.  They would not cover it under uninsured motorist since we could not prove that the perp had no insurance.  They paid it as collision and raised the rates.  I have even had windshields replaced due to sand pitting, which happens here in the desert, and it has not effected rates.

A friend in Australia is rewriting some RVing books and has a section on all the non-manufactured motorhomes.

He asked for a photo of my MC8 but the trouble is it was thoroughly butchered by the previous owner who had a two-bus coach line so mine isn't suitable.

He wrote

"I am currently rewriting Campervan & Motorhome Book and need a really good pic of a legendary MCI for the section which includes bus conversions

Would you have a good pic I could include - ideally at about 400 dpi. Will give full credits etc."

I know some members here have mint condition MCIs and wonder if anyone would be willing to have their pride and joy immortalised in print. He didn't specify interior or exterior so I imagine one of each would be perfect. Collyn's books have a good reputation for accuracy and he sells them all over the world - albeit for such a low price that he isn't a millionaire so can't afford to pay. Strictly for the glory.

He asked for MCI but I imagine photos of  any of the "famous" American or Canadian makes would also be well received

Any volunteers?  My email is tony.lee.02@gmail.com.
BTW I'm currently in Turkey paying big dollars for lousy bandwidth so maybe better not to send me the actual photos yet. Just hands up for now would be perfect.

My three fantastic fans are installed through the roof itself, which is pretty easy to do.  My thinking on using the escape hatch is how to maintain or remediate the rubber seal if you install things so the hatch can no longer be opened?
