    new roof needed

    don't forget to factor in weight. These things are heavy enough. Also extra weight at the very top is about the worse place...

    Looking for parts...

    If the door is a stock size you might be able to find one on eBay or Amazon. Measure it and I'll look around. Also radius corners? The window you will have to have made from plexiglass or have it fiberglassed in to cover the hole. Don't know what kind of seal is used on Americana windows. Also the edges might have melted some and make sealing a new window difficult. Linda S

    Looking for parts...

    I am being gifted an 89 'Americana', 87K on engine & chasis. Interior and appliances all good... The only glitch is that it was rescued from a fire and has some melted parts on th exterior; running lights, front camper window. Entrance/exit door needs replacement. Gelcoat burnt, exposing fiberglass in one leading edge corner. My question: Where can I find parts for this model? specifically: Door, front camper window. I have a local rv parts place but there is nothing even close to the 'Americana' on their lot and I haven't had much luck with websites I have found... looking for suggestions. I am a newbie, am looking forward to traveling in a rig I can afford to drive but would like it to be in good looking condidtion before I head out.

    Downshift Throttle Cable

    Hi again. Would you mind giving me some more detail as to how this cable connects at the transmission? You said to drop the pan so I assume it connects inside the transmission, not on the outside. I've been asking some transmission repair shops about installation, but wondering if it is something I can attempt to do myself. Been looking at on line pictures but not seeing enough detail. I'm having some trouble finding a shop that can get it on a lift (and also a transmission shop that will just install the cable without trying to sell me a rebuild). So may attempt it myself, but don't want to get into something I can't really do. One mechanic I talked to said he would catch the fluid and reuse it because old transmissions don't like new fluid. I'd rather change out the fluid, filter and anything else for a transmission service. Comments? Appreciate your help. Thanks. JJ

    1986 TravelMaster Escape Hatch replacement!

    Cool! Nice to meet you. Would like to see some pictures of yours. I plan to post a build thread of mine shortly. Our was in the family, so we got it for free because they didn't want it anymore. We've been re-building it from the ground up. I went to the factory website and looked up the part number for just the lid, so you may be able to order directly from them. Here's the part number 90129-C1 Lid - Heng's 22" X 22" Fits escape hatch 66621 http://www.hengsindustries.com/replacement-parts-list/ http://www.hengsindustries.com/distributors/
  15. Hiiii!! Im so glad to found another Travel Master parent! haha. Ill be happy to compare notes, i have just bought it but is in great shape! Im so happy with it! That hatch looks great, do you think I could just replace the cover? Or do i need to replace the entire Hatch? Mine is just missing the plastic cover! Thank you so much for your help!
  16. Hi Linda!! The mesure is exactly 22x22, but the 22x22 we have found in the market are a little bit smaller! We have tried a few!

    1986 TravelMaster Escape Hatch replacement!

    Hey Amaia! Fellow 1986 Travelmaster here as well. We need to compare notes :) Just replaced the same hatch, along with the A/C and bath room vent with a fantastic fan. Found this Escape hatch on Amazon. Fit and function seem to perform well. Hope this helps https://www.amazon.com/Hengs-66621-C2-Escape-Hatch-Aluminum/dp/B002NKZZ4G/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1531273975&sr=8-1-fkmr0&keywords=heng-s+66621-c2
  22. You must measure the opening exactly so we can look for you. I must warn you there are some sizes that are no longer made. Linda S
  23. I recently purchased a 1989 Americana  no window screens any suggestions where I can purchase. Live in Az. Also rear has what appears to be a continental kit but have no way to open or know what it’s for

  24. Hi everyone!! I have a 1986 Travelmaster that I adore (is my first motorhome), and last weekend the Escape Hatch on top of the bed, flew away!!! Ive lost the "plastic" cover, everything else is working fine. Ive been looking for replacements, but none fits, as is a little bit bigger that 22x22...does any one knows where I can find a replacement? I know that maybe is easier just replace it with another one, but i will really like to have the same one. Thank you for your help!!!

    Thanks for the help! I managed to get what I needed at a funky little hardware store here in Tacoma. They are the shark bite adapters that go from the old 3/8 inch poly to the new 1/2 inch pex. The guy there helped me piece together just what I needed and it all works perfectly now!!

    The shark bite type of fitting WRE posted work fine on both pex and polybutylene either in plastic or copper.

    if it looks like the attached image its ABS, not PVC. Plumbing is changed over often so yours could be PVC. The wall pipe to vent should still be 1-1/2" or something but more often than not the sink connections are a size smaller with a 1-1/2 to whatever the smallersize is (say 1-3/8" or 1-1/4") adapter being at the trap. This is due to Non standard size of the drain in the rv sinks. You should be able to take off the trap easily and take it to your store to verify exact dimensions. edit -- If its just leaks , you might want to consider leakproofing with appropriate plastic adhesive -- as long as you are happy cutting the next time instead of unscrewing. edit -- it looks like you are talking about water supply lines and not sink drain. plumbing is the abs. the gray water supply lines go two sizes too. 1/2" and 3/8". both are often extensively customized by now due to the issues you are facing now. They make relatively cheap nylon adapters for supply lines that can typically hold for a while with good clamping. edit : google 3/8" and 3/8" x 1/2" barb fittings to match the fitting you have now. They come in both nylon and metal (copper?). You probably need a 3/8" barb to 1/2".

    Not sure if anyone can give me a hand...I need to reconnect the plumbing under the kitchen sink. The old connectors were leaking like crazy. Went to HD thinking I had the pieces I needed to replace in my purse only to discover they got left behind.😥So, as I had taken photos, I was able to show one of the employees what I needed to replace. He found me what I also thought would do the job. I needed to cut part of one pipe off and use a new attachment to the sink. Problem is it does not fit my pipes. It is the grey plastic pipe, which I thought was PVC. I've since figured it is the old outdated polybutylene. It doesn't fit the new adapter which is 1/2" x 1/2". Can anyone tell me what size adapter I need and what company makes them?? Thanks!
