  1. Finally got around to bringing RV over to Natco to get transmission checked out. Turned out to be the speed sensors on transmission which ended up being 80 in parts and 200 in labor. Much cheaper than a rebuild and got it back in 2 days.
  2. Looks like they are pretty well rated. Ill have to give them a call.
  3. I have a 1991 Chev class 3 RV and the transmission is junk. Wondering if I would be better off finding a new/rebuilt one or trying to get the one I have rebuilt? Older RV but only has 40K miles on it and was in California most of its life and in very good condition so still worth fixing. Looking online looks like they are about 15-1800. Probably call a couple places around the NW suburbs on Monday and see how much they want to rebuild it.
  4. Might b a good idea to get something to spray on mold area to help kill it or keep it from getting worse
  5. Will also depend on what soil you have and frost and ice on the ground can also be a problem. If you live where there is a lot of clay that doesn't absorb water getting the water and snow away from the foundation is a must
  6. Landscaping makes a big difference to get the water away from the outside wall/foundation. Pull the snow away from the wall to
  7. ordered the harness to. Now just need some warmer and dryer weather to tear into it. Just needs to be done by fishing opener.
  8. If you have them why wouldn't you just put them on now. I would
  9. Ive got a knock sensor code coming up on my 2002 Chev Suburban so I havnt been driving it as not to do more damage to engine. Waiting for warmer weather to tear into it. Ordered 2 of them as might as well change both seeing have to remove intake to get to them. My question is should I change intake gaskets or anything else when I have intake off. Has about 160K miles on it.
  10. The 600 is a 2 stroke and a different system where the engine runs backwards for reverse.
  11. Rain next week could put a end to the trails around here.
  12. with the creases in that you would have a lot better luck pulling off the fender and pounding it out from the inside. And less damage to the outside paint.
  13. Antennaweb will let you put in zip code and tell you what channels are available and how far away tower is. In Mpls a lot of them come from Shoreview
  14. Im going to pick up an antenna and try it at least on the bedroom TVs to see how it works. I know in the summer I put one of those cheap antennas in the RV that basically look like a piece of paper and got a lot of channels with that and even a good picture. Gets old paying for 100 channels and only watch 5-6 of them and half of those you can get free with an antenna. And the other 95 channels are dump.
  15. Looks like they are on youtube to
  16. Thinking about getting rid of my always increasing cable TV bill. I know with a fairly cheap antenna I can get ABC NBC CBS and I think FOX and some other misc channels where Im at. My question is how would I get Discovery and History channel as I watch those quite a bit? Netflix?
  17. Ill use my tilt bed trailer with plastic slides and she slides right off no problem. Sticking to the trails and that thing called common sense should keep me from getting stuck and I have good insurance for a back up plan. Never been stuck yet and have only really used reverse to back out of enclosed trailer up till now so I think I can live without it for a short time. Heck now that I think of it I never had reverse on a machine till now but yes they are a little lighter than this one.
  18. The thought has crossed my mind but if you search the net and read up on the host of problems people have had with the electronic reverse you will start to realize it is junk to begin with. And problems can be fixed as easy as changing a fuse or relay or wiring harness or servo motor to more complex things like a slight wear on shaft or gears etc. Apparently mine isn't one of the easy fix ones as a lot of the stuff is just changing parts and pretty straight forward. I figure it this way the longer they take to get it fixed the more leverage I will have if things don't work out. If it isn't fixed in a couple days I plan on picking it up and running it to the end of season and then bring it back in . Its unfortunate as I like everything else about the machine except the electronic reverse. Im not even sure if switching it to manual is an option and I don't want to have holes cut into the panels.
  19. Now they are sending pictures to BRP of inside of chaincase to see if they see anything. If they cant get it working in a couple days they said they could put it back together and I could just run it with no reverse and then drop it off when Im done riding for the year. It has warranty till next November so they can work on it all summer if they want or need to. Sucks not having reverse but sucks more not having a machine to ride.
  20. A little extra weight sandbags in the box and good tires a 2 wheel drive will go threw quite a bit. Carry a shovel and some cat litter/sand etc. for traction if you get a little stuck. Common sense always goes a long ways even if you have 4 wheel drive.
  21. My sled is still in shop. So far they said they tried 3 reverse motors and wiring harness and still doesn't work. BRP said to inspect chain case and they said they didn't find any problems there either. I guess I will call back tomorrow like I have been doing every day for over a week now. Looks like a warm up coming and possibly some rain. So even if the trails hold up for a while any roads and parking lots will probably be dirt or tar.
  22. Well got all new parts put in sled unfortunately still have same problem. Goes into reverse wont come out. Dealer has to call BRP on Monday and try to figure out whats next.
  23. Good news today the reverse servo motor showed up for my sled. Kind of odd they told me yesterday it was on back order but Im not complaining. Tech is supposed to put it in this afternoon and got my fingers crossed that it will work.
  24. That was mentioned on another snowmobile site and didn't sound like that was an option. I do like the push button reverse when its working but sure has been plagued with the same problems for a while. Right now Im just hoping I get it fixed while there is still snow on the ground to try it out for a while
