Yes Dan a lot of tweeking, even down to realizing you forgot the cup holders, etc. What type of bus do you have? You might want to put it in your signature or profile. Thanks, Nelson

Was the leveling valve the problem?

Had to use coach-net twice this week and not very happy with their service.
     On Wednesday I blew a tag axle tire and after waiting almost two hours they finally showed.First off he had to remove bicycles and lawn equipment just to get at his air compressor which took him several minutes to start.The compressor would not build up enough air to run his impact wrench to take the lug nuts off.He finally had to break them loose by hand and finished taking them off with a 3/8 impact.It took him over an hour to change one tire.And after all that he hinted he wanted a tip.
    The next day I'm driving through St.Louis when the drivers side of the coach lost air.I was pretty sure I didn't blow an air bag but not sure what happened.After calling coach-net they decide what was needed and a tow was called.After waiting an hour they called back and said the first wrecker canceled and would be another two hours for them to show.
     Once he got the bus up high enough the driver found the leveling valve pushed up 90 degrees.He said nothing was broke and just pulled it down to level and it was fine.The driver said this can happen on really rough road and has seen this before.
      I found out that if was was towed it would be towed to the closes repair shop with a waiting period  of seven days to get the coach looked at.I found a shop that would look at at the same day but I would had to pay the extra millage.I didn't have to be towed but I do not their policy.

 Proper slack adjustments and SLACK ANGLES at full application make a huge difference in braking.>>>Dan

The maiden voyage is a memorable experience.  Like you, we took our maiden voyage about 2 months ago from PA to Fla and back towing a Jeep.  Ours was a smooth run as we settled into the 60 - 65 mph, except for the hills which got down to 35-40mph, to provide a more relaxing opportunity to enjoy the scenery.  Now we have to tweek the conversion to suit our needs.  It seemed that no matter where we stopped, whether a Walmart or a campground the bus draws a crowd and gets its picture taken quite a lot.  The highlight of a voyage is not so much the destination but the adventure of getting there.
Happy Trails............Dan

Could be time for a new foot valve there are o-rings and several moving cylinders inside when the aluminum housing corrodes inside they get hard to depress, thus restricting the time of air delivery and volume to the relay valves

   3" insulation, 2 Roof warts Colemans Mach 3, Dark Tinted original windows still in a few replaced double pane and some single pane. Thick draps on the inside of front window with off white linings. MCD Solar Black and off white night solid vinyl roll up blinds over all windows except front. Crank on the AC's and good to go in 106 weather. Also have 2 fans up front 2 speed 7 inch blowing right on us.
   No AC's on at 106 cook an egg on anything metal or shiny wood. When plugged in its 50 Amp or 30 or 15, the 4024 inverter will jump in if needed to run both AC's. Also have 7KW 3 cylinder Kubota with Kolher generator run everything on or off the road.
outside color white roof that needs a new coat and silver on the outside plus Shiny Stainless Steel lower half and front.

We don't go out much in Summer unless we go north because if hot have to keep the AC's going for the 3 Cats. So mostly go out September Oregon Washington, November Dam Rally maybe, January Quartszite & Dessert Hot Springs, March South and April LA. Rest of the time we take 3 or 4 days each month and go over to the Coast stay for a few days on the ocean. Life is Good

Also a friend of ours in the Entertainment Photography Business is sending us some Black cloth the use on the stages, that the wife will sew to the back of the front drapes to black out them even more. Cool Grin

My Buddy on the Ranch is retiring next year and we are cleaning out the Barn 60 X 40 feetx 16 feet. We had our own little Home Depot complete with the orange racks. We had a Plumbing, electrical, paint , tile, miscel, wood hard and soft, drywall and appliances sections. upper section was all the family stuff they stored for years and never came back to get it or didn't want it so they left it. I have sold Tractors on trailer, chop saws, power tools, Bat houses, boxes of sprinkler stuff, "big barrel Janice Wizbang chicken plucker" ( $400.00 yep look that one up on Google and they really work)and the list goes on. Just another thing i do here beside fixing everything that is broken or fails, collecting eggs planting trees and keeping a big pond going, Taking care of the big garden. Just finished building and remodeling the master Bath and bedroom at the main house and putting in a steam room. I originally went on the road to retire, LOL.
