I am going to order some new steel wheels for my bus and I want to make sure that I get the correct ones. I cannot find a dealer near me so I am going to have them shipped and don't want to have to return them.

I am looking at Accuride model 27404W rims, are these the correct ones for the 4104? I am also interested in the difference between the 2 hand holds vs the 5 hand holds (besides the obvious), I think the 5 may look nicer but it is hard to tell in the catalog if it will fit.

Here is the page that I am referring to, it is tough to tell on their pdf but it looks like it says that there might be a clearance issue on some older buses. Does anyone have any experience with using the 27833C on a 4104?

Hotard told me that they don't have the manpower to help me.

By "Mobile Glass Service People" do you mean the same kind of companies that fix automotive glass?  I was always under the impression that they could only deal with cars.

I've sent a message to Don through the email I've found on here.  Hopefully that will get me somewhere.

I'm getting desperate now.  I haven't been able to find anyone yet who is willing to take in the bus to fix it.  What do people do when their bus breaks down and they can't find a mechanic who will work on buses?

I had one tire scallop on a bogey...in 100 miles at 110 psi...shocks are IMO, what caused it...and maybe age as the tire is close to out dated..

  ... said Frank Marciano, President Dometic Americas. “The teams at Atwood Mobile Products and Dometic have worked tirelessly since the acquisition in October to create this new structure, which improves Dometic’s focus on its core businesses and creates more value for its shareholders. It has been a pleasure working with the team at Atwood Mobile Products.”   ...   

     What he didn't say (and should have) is "now, we'll fire them!"

I know from experience if you put scalloped tires from the steer to the tag the tag position will eat them up in a relatively short period of time. The best place for tires with that issue will be on the drive and over time the drive axle will get them wearing evenly.

I finally got the bus in to get this tire issue looked at.  The service place did an alignment and found the toe was out by 1/8".  The guys at Precision Frame in Elk River, MN thought it was the tire and recommended I go back to the tire dealer.  The tire dealer said it is not the tire.  He pulled out a book and showed me a picture of the exact problem I am having.  The book said low tire pressures and bad shocks are two possible causes.  I said I run the proper tire pressures by weight.  The tire guy still recommended increasing the pressure.

Nobody said there is any problem running the tire for now.  They did recommend swapping the left and right tires.  I will get new steer tires in a year or two and swap the current steer tires back to the tags axle.  i will probably replace front shocks since they are fairly inexpensive.
