I know, right?  The changes to the site are coming along, but not without its glitches, of course.  Always a learning curve...

Not as compact with the text, but maybe a bit more "fun" and "chatty"?

It will work just have to get used to the layout
 

Oz

2020 Nov 14 22:55:53
Well, I'm odd.  So... yeah, kinda fits just right.

2020 Nov 14 22:55:47
Funny layout I mean.  But nice to be able to chat again

Just transitioned to the new portal system.  I have a lot to recreate yet, but it won't take long. How do you like the new chat room?
 

joanfenn

2020 Nov 14 22:54:24

PANHARD BAR Fabrication & Install
« on: July 21, 2012, 10:40 AM »
   Is anyone familiar with the term "WAG THE DOG"? Thats what you get every time a large vehicle goes by you in either direction. This WHIPPING can be very dangerous for even a well experienced driver much less someone with limited knowledge of adversarial conditions driving an RV.
 
I first started with an Implement top bar for a farm tractor ( I got mine from Tractor Supply for $20.00). After splitting the bar & welding in a 4 to 6" piece of tubing in the middle to lengthen it & painting it was ready to install. An old extra long straight Class 1 drawbar properly notched to lock onto the frame rails, only one hole needed to be drilled into the chassis in the frame crossbrace junction & a stainless 8x 1/2" nut & bolt to fasten it.


On the rear end side, I had a 90 degree pipe bracket clamp ( you can use any 1/4" by 3" angle iron bracket for this as well) I used one bolt & you can use two if you like. Bolt this bracket to the rear "U" bolt threads sticking out below the nut & attach the bar to this after you set the RV on the ground to set the proper length. Tighten everything very tight & enjoy the ride.


 I have provided some pics in the photo section for clarification purposes & if you need any other info I am available for comment. This is a LOW BUCK option to the $500.00 bar they sell at Camping World & it works GREAT!! NO more uncontrollable whipping & recovery. I've made serious upgrades to the front suspension for control & this one is a MUST HAVE for taking the uncertainty out of driving.
I hope this helps in the overall scheme of things.

  As always C YA! GONMAD
