Tech Talk Suggestions
Because many forum members don't have much experience in motorhomes, or mechanical aptitude, I recommend that Tech Talk "How-To" posters try to make the thread as usable as possible for folks who want to try it.

1. Avoid run-on sentences like the above Big Grin

2. Use the Enter key to break up lengthy paragraphs

3. Where possible, number and break down the narrative into sequential steps

4. Take photos where possible, and insert at the corresponding step, or, if the photos are at the end, key them to each numbered step.

If photos are blurry or poorly exposed, you can email to Bill N Y or me as we have applications that can make many adjustments. I can use my astro-photo processing apps to improve out-of focus shots in some cases. The same applies if you're having trouble resizing or posting images.

5. List and show photos of tools where possible; some folks don't know what a box-end wrench or a flare-nut wrench is. If a special tool was needed, please indicate its name and where you got it.

6. List part numbers for all parts used, and where you got them. Prices are also welcomed.

7. And if you're one who has questions about a particular thread, please post your question rather than sending a PM. Questions can be helpful to other viewers

Sometimes I think we're alone in the universe, and sometimes I think we're not.
In either case the idea is quite staggering.

Bumpity. Folks, please break up long paragraphs into shorter, more readable ones. Thanks!

Bumpity II. If you're asking for info on some accessory, appliance, or even the drivetrain or chassis, please describe what it is, including size, model number and year of manufacture.

You are much more likely to get more useful responses the more info you provide - and this also extends to your signature - get the year, model, engine, chassis builder, and length of your listed so other members don't have to ferret out that information to figure out what you're dealing with.

And breaking a post into paragraphs is also wise - readability will generate more interest than 25 unbroken lines...Wink

Been a lot of places and done a lot of things. I found this place in Lynnwood WA that is the best Diesel garage I have found to date. Just FYI I have no idea where to post good mechanic information. So I will post it here

You could just start a new thread titled "Good diesel garage?" (As opposed to "good mechanic" which does not indicate what kind of mechanic...)
It would be easier to find and share when searching.

Thought something like that might exist already but I had not stumbled on it yet.. Should be some Good mechanic map or something. That would be cool.

Being this is topic suggestions I am going with Kevin. Is there a way to integrate a map? Kinda like the coach for sale map?

If Barth Web site is looking for money Here is. The opportunity to advertise inexpensively for the ones we recommend may be a plus for garages. It might work
