RV Newbies on Vancouver Island, Canada. Looking for helpful answers.
Hi we are newbies at the RV world. We reside on Vancouver Island, Canada
and are looking forward to heading south in the RV, besides that we have a
lot of questions.
We have a 1999 Jayco Eagle 241M, Ford Chassis with Triton V10 which
we just bought used, it has not been used a lot and was stored indoors
most of it's life, 27,000 miles and in mint shape. Just had all the tires
and wheels checked, balanced. When we are doing at between 50 to
70 we get a vibrating as if the tires are out of round,as we go faster
it seems to smooth out a bit, is this normal in an RV to get some
vibration, the tires are fairly new, Toyo, and what pressure should
they be at? The mechanics that balanced and turned the wheels on
the rims said it is probably the tire and of course tried to sell us new
tires. The existing tires are nearly new and were just put on due
to the age of the original tires starting to crack.
Also the chasis A/C is not cold, could it just require recharge and if so
can I do it myself? It is a Triton V10 and I have been quoted all sorts
of estimates and told have to replace compressor etc., and none of these
mechanics have even looked at it. When we turn on the AC we hear the
solenoid click in, with full A/C on we get no cold air.
Next question we are missing one of the back wheel chrome decorator
units, anyone know were to get a decent priced one? It's called a
versa-liner and found a part # V160F7 problem is the price 200.00 to
300.00. Anyone no of were to find a used one?
Any information is helpful, as we said newbies.
