    We dry camp most of the time and have been in the RV world for over 30 years. We are either out with the RZR and dirt toys or load up the boat and head for the lake. We always seem to have about 8,000 grandkids with us so this "new to us" Dynasty is a great open floor plan.

  1. You can have mine if it will fit.
  2. Good morning America. I would like to thank everyone for their input and thoughts. I am constantly impressed with the knowledge base and experiences of the folks who are on this forum. I always like to keep things as original as possible. I can cut the straps as a last resort if I do not get the trolley apart. The set of wheels to the rear may be a problem to get reattached. There is a business here in town that sells nothing but hose material in every shape, size and material for commercial applications. I will drop by there today and see what I can find. I think the factory installed piece is a little short. When the slide is in I think the bend at the upper coupling was to severe. There is a ton of room for the pipe to travel into when the slide is closed. A little longer piece would be not problem with clearance issues. The only obstacle with that plan is all the other piping and electrical were zip tied to the drain line. I had to cut 27 zip ties just to get the other utilities away from the drain line. Thank you again everyone for your help. Have a great day.
  3. The large flexible drain pipe in my 2008 Dynasty has broken just behind the upper black ABS pipe. This is the connection to the ridge ABS pipe to accommodate the kitchen slide. I have read many post about how to repair the pipe. The crack in the pipe is right next to the threaded fitting so there is no way to cut out the bad section and use a barbed fitting and hose clamps. Replacing the pipe is not a problem. Getting it out is another issue. My question is how do you disconnect the trolley from the track? There are four plastic snap things that look like they would release the bolts from the wheels? There are 3 straps holding the pipe in place. I can not get to the screws holding those straps with the trolley in place on its track. The screws are in the top of the board as if the entire unit was assembled then put in place. Attached are a few pictures.
  4. On our 2008 Dynasty with the original Sharp TV is the big power user. Our refer draws 7 amps on the high side when active cooling. Add in just the TV and it jumps up to 28+/- amps. I 100% agree with the others about making sure your connection are all very clean and secure. LifeLine batteries has a great write up on equalizing your batteries including AGM batteries. Why they get sulfate and what to do ti try and recover your batteries.
  5. Thank you sir. Most were leaks that needed a good amount of very soapy water solution. Most of the leaks were from the fittings and pressure valves on the tanks. Not one bag was leaking. Like many others I put together a series of 2 x 10 boards to make ramps. Drove the large unit up on the ramps so when the air bags dropped from taking off the lines my butt would not get squished. The air tank water drain valves were leaking front and rear. Good luck, take your time and enjoy the beautiful underbelly of the these mechanical beast we drive around. They are complicated and simple at the same time. No wonder some guys name their coaches with the name of a woman.
  6. I have been systematically replacing the cheap slip fittings with DOT heavy duty truck compression threaded fittings. So far I have located 16 air leaks on the coach. I have final reached a point where the bags never drop. Air is still leaking from the tanks slowly somewhere. I know my air dryer leaks and that WABCO will be replaced with a much better unit made by Bendix. Air leaks are a almost never ending issue.
  7. A little update. I replaced the command board with a Flight Systems board. Great customer service from Flight Systems. Install was maybe 20 minutes. Ran the generator for 4 hours with all three A/C units cooling with fan on high, refer and Magnum charger running. Not a single hiccup or stall. I did not replace any fuel lines or other items. The command board was the problem. On a side note, when I removed the coolant recovery tank to install the board I discovered the coolant tank was cracked and leaking at the threaded inserts. There goes another $175 for a replacement tank.
  8. https://www.dieselpartsdirect.com/ds3972375 Website reads the item is in stock.
  9. I thought that was the blinker fluid container for the rear turn signals. I guess I was wrong.
  10. With out any signs of leakage, a fuel line would be low on my list of things to look at.
  11. Wow 10,500 on tag and 23,000 on the drive is right at legal limit for the combination of tandem axles. I am surprised it is that heavy. Are your front hubs/bearings oil bath or packed grease? Do you know what the MFG rating is for the front axle as well as the weight rating for the wheels? Did you buy new front wheels for the 315's?
  12. I never raise mine. I don't see any wear marks on the tires or in the street and I make a sharp turn to back into our street. I mean steering wheel cranked all the way over. It is a nice option to have but I am with you in not overloading the drive axle. I am going to weight my coach tomorrow fully loaded with fuel, water, LPG, food and all gear in the bays. Along with our enclosed trailer loaded with the toys. At 72 ft. long I hope the scale weigh pads are spaced out right to get may axles. How much weight is on your tag axle?
  13. Richard you got this. I would recommend taking pictures of everything before you disconnect anything. Watch You Tube videos and see what other have done. It is not that complicated and you will have this done in no time. Post up a picture or two of your project.
  14. Lord grant me patients, and I want it right now. Have a great day and good luck on the install.
  15. Further up in the post hilrunr, Mr. Mark Fell asked the question about the A/C. I copied and pasted his question. I was attempting to offer him a suggestion and maybe I should have told him to stay with the class and not muddy the waters with a question within a question. I appreciate your input and I will make every effort with my limited capacities to do better in the future.
