Koni stated that they did not have anything close to the monroe 65444 so I went with the Monroes on the front and Koni's on the rear.  I figured they had been mismatched as far as brands from day one, and this had to be better than the old shocks.  I had gone to rock auto.com to check out the spec sheet and they had the shocks for $50.79.  After contacting Shock warehouse about returning the Koni's they had the Monroes, but they were about $80.00 each.  He said I should buy them as they must be discontinuing them for that price as it was less than he could buy them for.  I thought about it, and bought 4 or the 6 available from rock auto.  I may never replace the two I am going to put on in the next week or so, but if I do I won't have to go looking for something that no longer exist.

Probably the same as my coach slide. At least the one end is easy to get to.

Mike,     I have near me here in So Cal a shop that specializes in Corian and I would think they could duplicate what you are looking for.  I bet you have a shop near you that would be able to do the same, route # 2.

Jeff, A 100w solar panel will output about 5 amps, in full sun, you will get about 5 hrs of sun per day, so your one solar panel will give you about 25 amp/hours per day. I did some measurements on the 'idle current' of my inverter and I was getting about 2.5 amps draw when the inverter is in the 'standby' mode.  So 2.5a x 24 hrs/day = 60 amp hrs just from idle current from the inverter. Your refrig CO detector, smoke alarm, etc also draw amperage 24/7. You are gonna have to run your generator each day for an hour or two to keep your batteries charged, unless you are hooked up to shore power.
Now, if I could only convince the wife to go to Mexico!

Warren,
A gallon of diesel fuel weighs 7.1089 lbs so a full tank (109 gal) weighs 775 lbs.

single cylinder in the middle of the slide out.  Its going to cumbersome to get at as the cargo bays come out with the slide out on the driver side unlike the passenger side the cargo bays stay put and the underneath is exposed.  I probably need to check and make sure the hoses are clamped tightly and the hoses themselves have not failed.  I have read on the forum the hoses can be problematic.  However it looks as though it is leaking right where the seal would be where the rod moves inside the cylinder. 


Mike don't hesitate to give me a call if you have some input for me

Warren,
Since no 2 coaches are loaded the same for travel, and very few coaches were equipped the same. Therefore, there are no accurate weight numbers for all 36 foot Monterey coaches. That is why I always suggest that everyone should weigh their coach at each individual wheel location and adjust their tire air pressure on each axle by the heaviest wheel on that axle. I have seen a 1,000 lb. difference from one side of a coach to the other side on the same axle, and that is why you need to weigh each wheel location.

Technical Support / Re: Is it time to replace the air dryer element?

Bill,
It is time to service your air drier. With a properly functioning air drier, you should expect no water or at least nearly no water when bleeding your air tanks.

Since most coaches are driven so little when compared to a commercial truck, I do not service the air drier on a timed schedule as recommended for a commercial truck, but I use the presence of water at the tank bleeder as the signal that service is needed.

Anyone know the "Dry" weight for 36' 2005 Monterey Ventura IV'?  Recent trip to scales shows unloaded with full fuel, other tanks empty at 30,020 lbs (10,020 FT  20,000 RR).  Thanks.
