    1993 E350 Alignment concern

    Thanks - I had not seen the "E350/450 handling problems..." thread before. This was just a front end alignment...

    1993 E350 Alignment concern

    I recently replaced most of my front end components- new upper/lower ball joints, new tie rods, new radius arm bushings. Took it to Southern Tire Mart for alignment (see attached pic) and just drove it last weekend with my Subaru Forest in tow. Motorhome seemed to drift more within the lane...

    '93 Ford E350 rear brake drums stuck

    Not very well - first time they've done anything for me. But, I think it' the E/Parking brake - I released the pedal again and the wheel now spins and the drum popped right off! They also adjusted the E-brake so I'm thinking something is going on there. Not sure how to fix it...

    They're not open today......and I really need to try and get to my parent's... Obvioulsy, if I can't get it fixed then I'm stuck here until at least Monday.

    '93 Ford E350 rear brake drums stuck

    I never take my coach anywhere for work as I try to do most things myself, but I was in a hurry this time leaving town so i had a local shop grease the u-joints and adjust the rear brakes on my '93 Ford E350. We we're heading out of town this evening and I started to smell the brakes - the rear...

    HWH jack leaking - did I ruin it?

    I never installed it! The leaking has really slowed although there is still a slight leak. I decided to "leave well enough alone" for the time being. I have a spare bolt and am keeping an eye on it. The bolt is a cheap fix and I'm looking at my bolt kit and it contains 2 rubber o-rings.

    Can't get grease gun on driveshaft u joints - '93 Ford E350

    I am attaching some pics - it looks like to me, according to 84southwind above - that most of these were installed backwards. The most forward joint looks correct (IMG_1270 - 3rd pic) - the one connecting to the transmission, but the others look backward (1266 and 1269 are connected to the...

    Can't get grease gun on driveshaft u joints - '93 Ford E350

    We've had a lot of rain here the past few days, but I am going to try and crawl under today. I may post a pic or 2 later... Thanks for the replies! I am HOPING that I can just undo the carrier bearing bolts and lower the shaft enough to turn and get clearance. Pretty sure I will have to have...

    Can't get grease gun on driveshaft u joints - '93 Ford E350

    Rotating the shaft also did not allow access and I don't think I can remove some of the zerks either - just no clearance to get a wrench on. Do I have to completely remove the 3 piece driveshaft? Or can I just loosen and lower some? At the carrier bearing as suggested above?

    Can't get grease gun on driveshaft u joints - '93 Ford E350

    Yes, it's a 29 ft Class C on a Ford E350...and yes, I've tried the rubber hose approach. I am really to the point that the only way I see doing this is to drop the driveshaft some...

    Can't get grease gun on driveshaft u joints - '93 Ford E350

    Getting a bit frustrated, but I have tried just about every type of grease gun fitting I can find - 90 degree, needle tip, etc and I just can't get my gun on to the zerk on any of my u joints. I'm looking at removing the 3 part driveshaft just enough to reach the zerks (I had these replaced...

    Want to replace my old Thetford Aqua Magic IV toilet

    Bolts are at 9 and 3... Is the Style Plus worth the extra $$? More than a $100 more...but I like the idea of the porcelain bowl, just not sure about the foot flush. Since the toilet already sits up on a 6" ledge I'm concerned about my wife's ability to flush it with her foot. She is leaning...

    Want to replace my old Thetford Aqua Magic IV toilet

    I have an older Class C - 1993 Cobra Passport - and I need to replace the toilet. It's a low profile hand flush and I'm probably wanting to go back with the same. It sits up on a raised platform against the wall - 6 inches above the main RV floor. Removal looks straightforward but I'm not...

    Suburban water heater won't shut off

    Installed the new thermostat today and tried it out - seems to be working great.  Heater shut off, tested water and at 130F... Things don't usually go this easy for me!! Thanks for the help! ryan

    Suburban water heater won't shut off

    Perfect - thought that was the case...and that answers the wiring install concerns as well. Thanks folks. ryan

    Suburban water heater won't shut off

    Thanks Henry!  Really appreciate the help. One last question in regard to the wiring sequence - in looking at the pic of the new combo switch, which is the thermostat?  And what is that white tube?  This will probably be evident when the part arrives...but just making sure ahead of time that I...

    Suburban water heater won't shut off

    It looks like the new combo stat/switch has only 2 spade connections - for 4 wires??  What am I missing?  I'm guessing that I don't need the wire connecting the switch and the stat (see wiring diagram) - right?  That's what the solid bar is doing in the new combo part... I kind of answered my...

    Suburban water heater won't shut off

    I believe on the one I ordered there's a hole that a stud fits through (I am attaching a pic of my current set-up and you can see the nut that needs to be removed and that it is actually holding on a H shaped bracket). I am also attaching the wiring diagram... I was more concerned with...

    Suburban water heater won't shut off

    I have a 6 gallon Suburban water heater - older model, maybe even original (1993).  It is a SW6D model with direct ignition and - I THINK - has had a 110v hot rod added on as it has what looks like aftermarket wiring and a thermostat added to the side of the tank (I have never used the electric...

    Ford 460 - Vapor lock problem???

    Wow!  One of my old threads and I could/would have sworn I came back here and updated what I eventually figured out.  I think I was also getting some help on another Ford 460 forum, so maybe that's where I posted an update.  Plus, not long after this job I ran in to the common 460 exhaust...

    '93 E350 tailights/clearance lights not working (brake/signal lights are fine)

    Per the title, I have an older Class C on a 1993 Ford E350 chassis. Headlights, brake lights, front and rear turn signals all work, but I can't get the tail lights and all of the running/clearance lights working when the headlights are turned on. I'm assuming I have a break in the circuit...

    HWH jack leaking - did I ruin it?

    This is an older system - 90s...I've had the coach for the last 10 years and it just started leaking the first time in the fall of 2018 (first post in this thread).  The new bolt came straight from HWH, so I don't know.  And, I think you're right about the banjo type bolt and its installation. ...

    HWH jack leaking - did I ruin it?

    Well, I'm filling because I have a leak - thought that was pretty clear.  I put the jacks out and over the course of several days the right rear jack leaks down due to an external fluid leak.  This has happened a couple of times within the past month.  Normally I don't park it with the jacks...
