Will insurance increase on an owner's car if they received a ticket while driving a motor home with expired tags and no insurance?

More than likely not, those are both minor tickets, that insurance companies usually ignore when rating your policy. Driving uninsured is a very serious crime, and I would expect your insurance rates to go up if discovered.

How can you stop a Polaris 500 snowmobile from overheating?

There are a few things that cause this. Not being sure of how long it takes before the engine overheats I will give you a few common causes. Thermostat not working properly (Mounted on top of engine where cooling hose hooks up) . Can be tested on a stove, need a pan, some water, a string, thermometer able to read over or at least 250 degrees. Open the thermostat insert an end of the string. Tie the other end of the string to the handle of the pan, as to keep the thermostat about half way up the side of the pan. Fill pan with water just pass the thermostat, and place on the stove. Bring water to a boil, before the water boils the thermostat should open and fall to the bottom of the pan, you should be checking the temp of the water with the thermometer, so you know the water temp when this happens, it should match, or be very close to the temp stamped on top of the thermostat. If water boils and thermostat does not open, get a new one. Another common cause is air in the system, there may be points in the system higher than the fill point, with today's rear suspension system this has become an issue. To fill this type sled with coolant you must raise the fill point. This can be done with a jack. or even a snowmobile trailer. With a tilt bed type, load sled, tie it down, brace the bed up, this will raise the fill point. With a ramp type, just run the sled up on the ramp. When using a trailer always have it hook up to a auto. A steep ditch , or hill will also work. Good luckCheck you **************check your water pump belt for wear/brakeage it is located behind the rewind assy, and make sure you are driving in powdered snow as driving on ice does not cool the engine because snow passes over the heat exchangers and cools the motor*************

Belts and Fluids
Recreational Vehicles (RVs)

What are the belt sizes on the 454 engine on a 1985 Pace Arrow motor home?

Depending if you have AC or not they will be different. Using gates(napa) brand belts on an AC equipped Motorhome the power steering to crank V- belt(cog nearest engine and first one on) is 7410. The V-Belt that goes to fan, AC, PS and crank is 7603(second belt that goes on). The third and final belt(w/ 1 air pump) is a V-ribbed serpentine like belt is part number 060557. This belt goes around fan, alt., air pump and crank. Hope this helps. They are exactly what I put on my 1987 Pace Arrow 454 Motorhome,. If you have 2 air pumps the last belt from air pump to power steering would be 7450. Greg

I am looking to haul new motor homes and campers for dealers?

Answer You will require at LEAST a 3/4 ton pickup. DIESEL engine for maximum pulling power. Possibly even a 4 wheel drive model if you have to deliver in muddy conditions. Chevrolet Silverado 2500/3500 trucks with DIESEL Duramax is alright. You can also go with Ford f250-350 trucks with the power stroke engine. Dodge has the cummins diesel too.

How can I repair RV roof leaks?

When a leak develops on your RV roof, the water may travel unnoticed in the area between the roof and the ceiling, dripping down into the walls and causing damage which may not be detected until you’ve got a very expensive problem on your hands. Inspecting the roof isn’t enough. You’ve got to go through the entire motorhome to see if there are any areas which show signs that water is getting in. Then you’ll be able to trace it back to the source and treat the roof with Liquid RV Roof to prevent further damage.

Have ford 460 eng 1997 class a motorhome no voltage to overdrive switch in steering column?

I have a 1996 class A with a 460 and the circuit for the OD switch ( in the end of the shift handle) comes thru the T-signal circuit. My problem was the wires pinched where it leaves the shift handle and steering column met and shorted out both OD switch and Turn signals. That could be a good place to start looking, you do not have to remove the steering wheel to work on it.

Perhaps. Property that can be included in bankruptcy is governed by the the filing, state and/or federal. Each state has specific exemptions amounts for real and personal property. An issue such as a motorhome would depend on what type exemption (if any) pertains to the vehicle.

How do you fix a front wiper motor in your 1997 Transport that does not return to its home resting position need help with this 5 22 06?

The reason lies in an excessive lubrication of wiper motor pinion so that movable electrical points become disconnected from base upon the surface of pinion. You should take off the whole wiper system (I did that myself with no others help so you CAN do), take off the motor cover and electronic board. Underneath it you'll see the pinion. Remove the excessive lubrication and clean two electrical contacts and two tracks with cleaning rag. That's all about it.
