RE: Intellitec Bi-Directional Isolator fried

Trombetta does make solenoids-- no idea if that is what he has: http://www.trombetta.com/products/powerseal-family

RE: Need some help with Coolant issue in 2002 Tiffin Allegro

And, if you do have a COOLANT FILTER, make sure they install a new one-- called a BLANK. It is a filter only with no SCA.

RE: 12 V electrical problem

On edit after reading Bud's post immediately below: I was incorrect-- assumed that the ignition solenoid also controlled all features that are on only with ignition on (like the dash HVAC fan). Evidently on the OP's chassis, that is not correct. Sorry for the misdirection.

RE: Broken water heater plug

A broken sprinkler head removal tool (any box store) works perfectly. And, not heating needed.

RE: Battery wiring diagram

Yup, the first interconnect wire puts them in series. The second one is the one that turns it into an arc welding experiment.

RE: Need some help with Coolant issue in 2002 Tiffin Allegro

Make sure it is the same type you already have in it now. Either green for the less expensive or red for the very expensive coolant. And, THAT is the problem. Color alone does not tell you the coolant chemistry. Sadly, no industry standards here. IMO, if going to change coolant anyway in a few months, do NOT take a chance on mixing coolant chemistries. And, if the standard diesel coolant, if you are even thinking about using it over the winter, check the pH with test strips. Poor economy to wait and have the radiator eaten by acidic coolant!

RE: Problem with new Atwood furnace

Check for closed heater vents or other restrictions that cause the SAIL SWITCH to not complete the "start cycle". Low voltage will also contribute to insufficient air flow to close the sail switch.

RE: Need some help with Coolant issue in 2002 Tiffin Allegro

David, Reality-- very unlikely you will know what coolant is in there unless there is a receipt for changing it. Worse, it could be OE and 13+ years old. The ONLY rational thing to do is flush and go back with new coolant. Make sure you use one made for diesels. Either the "low silicate for diesel with added SCA" or the newer no-maintenance OAT-based coolant.

RE: Battery wiring diagram

As a minimalist, I am fine with it-- just have to remove EITHER wire and it is a standard 12 VDC battery bank. And, that leaves you with one fine interconnect cable when you add another pair.

RE: zacatecas

Yup, Zacatacas is one of our favorite towns/cities to visit. For a gourmet meal at a reasonable price, try dinner at the restaurant in the old bull ring.

RE: Is a Western RV Alpine a Quality Coach?

Totally agree. That is a neglected, abused coach. What a shame. Did an inspection on a Foretravel last week-- same thing. A really nice coach that has been long neglected AND abused. Caveat Emptor.

RE: zacatecas

http://www.hotelesbaruk.com/english/locations/ The top one off HWY 45 is just fine for big rigs. Would never try the one in town with anything over 25'. Haven't been to the hotel RV park in a couple of years, but you used to have to go to the office to have them open the far/east gate. Access is not an issue.

RE: crankcase ventilation tubes

Yup, first step is to CALIBRATE the engine oil dipstick. It was NOT provided by your engine manufacturer. It may or may not be accurate. IF you overfill, your engine WILL puke it out. If you still have a problem after verifying that you are not overfilling the crankcase, indeed fit a catchment jug. Just make absolutely positive that you do not restrict air flow. And if you are going to use something such as the steel wool recommended (a reasonable concept), use something that will not rust. So bronze wool (marine store) or stainless steel. Regular steel wool when exposed to the moisture it will be exposed to in that location, will turn into a pile of rust and if left long enough will restrict air flow. Sure, if you live and drive in the desert SW, not a problem.

RE: Cat 3126 oil filter change

Yup, a HEUI engine can NOT inject diesel unless there is oil pressure! No oil pressure, no start.

RE: Cat 3126 oil filter change

At one of the tech sessions at a Diesel RV Club Rally, we started a discussion on this. A guy in back stood up and introduced himself-- retired chemical engineer from one of the top 3 petroleum companies in the U.S. He said, "Do NOT bet your engine's life that there are never any contaminants in new/packaged oil". As long as it goes through the filter medium before going to the engine, you are fine. Fill the outlet to a filter and that is 100% UNFILTERED oil and not recommended." But, each of us must decide our comfort level with how to do it.

RE: What is this?

And spark plug replacement or valve adjustment would likely require removing it from the coach.

RE: Cat 3126 oil filter change

Caterpillar's recommendation is install dry. Their reasoning is that the oil on the bearings will lube for well more than the few seconds it takes to fill the oil filter. And any oil you pour into the filter will do directly to the bearings without ever being filtered. Now, if this really goes against your grain, take a few more minutes and fill the small outer holes of the filter (the inlets), not the center large hole (outlet).
