Parts galore

If I was about to start then I'd have been interested in this for the parts....

With a blown transmission and everything else that's gone wrong, the engine is going to be high on the list for the next most likely problem. uploadfromtaptalk1440682141786.pnguploadfromtaptalk1440682168650.png
As all I need as of now is batteries, $600+ hauling + disposal of the remains is a but too much.

Call a nearby Scrap yard and see if the scrap would overcome the trash generated...
For $600 and a little towing - there's value there for someone.
Somebody will jump on that... Hahaha

Lol yes. Not going to be me though. I feel for the owner because of the money thrown into it. The transmission must have been the straw that broke the camels back. Even though it should be fixable, it sounds like a case of the owner quitting spending money on a Money pit.

What a fool. It looks like it has a overdrive unit, probably on a Turbo 400. He can get a used transmission for a ccuple hundred bucks and be back in business.

Because its a huge rv built with light truck components.
I've seen RV's with major failures in half that mileage.
At today's uber-low scrap prices, it wouldn't be worth it unless it were free. Which some of them are. I got a bunch of GOOD appliances and parts off a free rv on CL.

They just reduced the price to $500. My best guess is it'll get down to $300. That might be worthwhile for batteries

Lol. I think it's some kind of scam. The phone number turns out to be Bell South (not mobile) for cocoa Beach, Florida.

The photos are a storage unit, not Love Chevrolet.

*sigh* typical bloody crookslist

For what it's worth, if someone wanted to check it out, first see which transmission is in it and give the exhaust a good sniff. If you notice white smoke and a slightly burned power steering fluid type smell, you might be in luck.

Since it's "heavy duty", it'll probably have a 400 trans. The 400's have a vacuum modulator, to regulate pump pressure based on how hard the engine is working. It's just a rubber diaphragm in a metal housing. If that diaphragm breaks, the engine vacuum will suck the fluid right out of the pan, leaving the transmission useless and the top end of the engine well lubricated. You wouldn't be the first person to score a heck of a deal for the price of a modulator ($50-ish?).

If it's the 700R4, it'll be the early "small shaft" style. Let them keep it unless you need the batteries or tires or whatever.

And yeah, CL is full of scammers, but they're usually trying to sell 2007 Accords for $600 to see who bites...

Really and truly only things I'm in need of are white & grey tanks, a fridge and batteries.

The white & grey tanks will be those blue 15 gallon drums - possibly up to 3 each. They're dirt cheap.

The fridge will probably be home made using a Walmart cooler and a couple of Peltier components. (Plus fans and heatsinks)

Batteries would be useful but I can get all the capacity needed locally.

The alternator would be handy - combined with a bicycle wheel and some plastic guttering as a wind turbine.

Other than that, there's little on that motorhome of any interest. It was advertised 9 months too late!
