RE: Gas vs Diesel

Claims? Well its a fact that you will get that kind of mileage from a Diesel, not just claims. Why not ask this diesel owner how many miles on his engine in his 2001 coach? Diesel engine replacement The real FACTS are that no engine is immune from failure for various reasons. All engines are man made and subject to failure but that diesel engine is the exception not the norm.

RE: Gas vs Diesel

The Ford V-10 3 valve with Banks Power Pack and 5 Star Tuning can get up to 425 hp and 540 lbs of torque at the crank shaft, on a motorhome that weights under 20,000 lbs it moves right along and can keep up with the diesels in the mountains.. Its not about getting to the top of the mountain first. But where will the gasers be at 200k miles. I had my Allison Transmission serviced, filters replaced, fluid replaced with synthetic fluid. When I picked it up they said see you in 300,000 miles. You don't see that kind of miles out of a gas engine. There is claims of people having 300,000 miles on a V-10 pickup truck and we also have that Toyota truck {gas motor} that got 1 millon miles. Claims? Well its a fact that you will get that kind of mileage from a Diesel, not just claims. Also when you have to add aftermarket upgrades to get more horsepower out of a gas engine that wasn't designed for that you are going to shorten its life expectancy. Both cases you just sited are light duty pickup trucks, not 20,000 lb RV's JMHO

Is the fan blade assembly on backwards?

RE: Replacement tires

All 6 tires on my coach are Hankook. Doing just great. My only complaint is that I am running their largest tire 275/70/22.5 in their AH12 model. I could use a taller tire.

RE: Onan Microquiet 4000

There is an adjustment on the carb for elevation. Not sure if this is an issue for you but it was for my friends Onan.

RE: Atwood Water Heater won't stay lit.

At the end of the burner assembly there is a round metal tab that sticks up in front of the burner tube opening. If that is broken off the flame is not going to burn right and can cause your problem. Also If that tab is in place try taking off your spark electrode assembly it is also you flame recognition circuit. Clean it up with some sandpaper. The slightest bit of rust will prevent the small current from passing through to the control board.

RE: Date on Propane Tanks

Where can I find out where it says that the permanently mounted propane tank on my Class A does not need to be recertified.

RE: First night as a full timer

Congratulations I'm jealous. We've got the rig, but we are not old enough yet. If you have the rig, you can workamp (work camp) your way around the country. Age is irrelevant. I'm currently workamping at Adventureland Amusement Park in Des Moines Iowa. There is some pretty young full timers working here.

RE: AC Compressor Not Kicking On

if you took out a 60mfd capacitor then a 60 should go back in. A 40 won't have enough a$$ to start it.

RE: Lot of water from A/C

If your coil is freezing up then you have other issues. A clogged evaporator coil, or worse yet a refrigerant leak. If you don't have water issues when its raining then you can rule out the gasket.

RE: right hand lean

I had a bad rear air bag which made it lean to the left. If your air bags are ok and even if you don't have the weight distributed right you should still be able to adjust your leveling valves to compensate. On my coach I have one leveling valve in the front and two in the rear.

RE: Gas vs Diesel

Speedco is a nationwide Jiffy lube for trucks. They have an app that will tell you the nearest Speedco location.

RE: Gas vs Diesel

On average when I pay for someone to do my oil change 7 Gallons of Rotella T and that includes the coolant additive/filter and two filters on my fuel system I've paid from $250-$375. and that is done about every 7k miles. The air filter is usually good for 30k miles. My last oil change was done outside Denver at a Speedco.

RE: Gas vs Diesel

Go with a diesel pusher. There is a reason why an older diesel is about the same price as newer gasers. They last longer work harder and its a lot quieter than gasers

RE: Hot water heater

If you have an Atwood there is a switch located on the back of the water heater. Because mine is not very accessible I just leave it on so whenever I have shore power it comes right on. My water heater can run both electric and propane at the same time.

RE: where is the furnace located for maintenance

Start tracing your heat vent hoses back to the furnace. In my country coach its in the kitchen under the stove. look for an open return air grill it has to have one to circulate the air.

RE: Cash price on fuel

Get a Pilot/Flying J RV Plus card and you can get $.07 off the cash price. I've been using it for almost 7 years and love it. Down load their app (my pilot) to your phone, you can see fuel prices any where in the country.

RE: Xantrex Inverter

OK so here is the update Just as I started to disconnect the positive cable from the unit I noticed it was very loose. So I tightened it up and everything is working just fine. Lucky me!!!!

RE: Fueling a DP

The pilot and flying j card also gives you $.10 off each gallon of propane too.
