  1. Cleaning a DPF

    I was told by the service manager, at the dealership that I have had work done at, that a manual regen will not be allowed until all fault codes have been cleared.
  2. New B.C. RV Resort

    There is a new RV resort at Fernie, B.C., that appears to havelarge sites, for those that are traveling that area of Canada. You can find the Info at http://www.ferniervresort.com
  3. *%$#^*ing trees.................

    Dave, Be careful if you decide to proceed with repair before getting a settlement from your insurance company - I did this once and when they found out I had the repair done it was tough luck for me - claim denied!!!
  4. Sudden Slow Start

    I have an 09 with the d13 engine which also had a leak in the manual fuel priming pump which caused slow starting and required priming at times also. I had the fuel filter head/primer replaced and it seems fine now after 300 km. I have to say though that I could tell it had a slight miss or at the least sounded like it was running lean. When I did prime it there was fuel leakage around the primer while pumping.
  5. Modular Smart Car Beds

    BM - I like the simplicity of your "RMP" - What's the weight of that quad and what is the wall thickness of the tubing?
  6. Volvo Headlights Upgrade

    I think Gregg at RVHaulers did a video on having a film (similar to the film installed over a cell phone screen) installed over the light lenses. I would think that such a product would help protect from sand blasting, etc, considerably.
  7. Stuck Brakes

    For those of us that have trouble with sticking brakes, I have found that a ~3' foot piece of ~1" rod used like a pool cue (sort of) works a lot better that a hammer for jarring them loose. It works for frozen ones any way! Hope this helps next time.
  8. HDT friendly park in Kelowna, B.C.

    Darryl - we took a drive out there today - didn't talk to anyone but looks like they are definitely going out of the Rv site business. I think every single sight has a park model on it and all are identical in appearance.
  9. HDT friendly park in Kelowna, B.C.

    Ok got it when I searched Peachland. How long ago were you there? DW thinks it maybe was sold?
  10. HDT friendly park in Kelowna, B.C.

    Thanks Darryl! It looks like a Whitespot restaurant that has the flag on it.
  11. I checked the HHRG RV map for sites - it shows one but it's not a campsite, it appears to be restaurant. Does anyone have any suggestions for HDT compatible sites for this area?
  12. "Willy Mammoth" - Volvo 730 RV Hauler Build

    bm0 - nice looking website! Willy Mammoth isn't to shabby either!
  13. VOLVO FAIRINGS - HOW TO ADJUST?

    Jim mine were loose too. I went to Volvo and got bushings that the handle pins fit in. They were only a couple of $. That didn't help so I went back and got new parts (pins, springs, etc.) for the handles. When I went to replace the parts I couldn't get the tiny set screws out without drilling so returned the parts I had picked up to Volvo and picked up the whole kit which was recommended to me in the first place. I still have to install them though. The miscellaneous parts I had picked for 2 handles were about $67C - the complete kits were about $260C for 4 kits. Hope this helps!
  14. Raymond, I can't speak for Dawson Creek but usually "Card locks" in Saskatchewan and the ones I have been to in Alberta only accept the "Card lock card" - essentially it is just a credit account set up at the fuel supplier and billed out monthly.
