RE: New FMCA/Verizon Unlimited Data Plan

http://community.fmca.com/topic/10973-verizon-news-update/ There is the update from FMCA Staff: larrypennington Members 12 posts Posted 25 minutes ago · Report post FMCA recently sent out notifications to a limited group of members as part of a “soft launch” or “beta test” of a wireless data plan from Verizon. FMCA had plans to share this information with the entire membership after this test period. Online news outlets heard about the plan and released information before FMCA was ready to make the announcement to all members. Response during this test period has been overwhelming, and we have had to suspend entries to the program. Rest assured that once we are ready to release information about the benefit, all members will be given the opportunity to evaluate the program and enroll if they believe it will meet their needs. Stay tuned for additional information.

RE: New (to me) RV--lightweight toad recommendations

First question on a toad is do you drive a stick shift or need an automatic? That will help define what can be towed 4 wheels down.

RE: Generator clicks but wont start

Check voltage at the generator while cranking: Large red/hot lug to generator metal should be 12+ VDC. What is it when not cranking? What is it when cranking/trying to get it to crank?

RE: 2003 Itasca DP does not always start

When I turn the key all the normal lights on the dash come on. When I move the key to the start position the starter does not even engage. Try starting in neutral instead of park. Move the shift lever through the whole shift pattern and back to neutral. Push down on the brake hard if that is part of the required starting procedures. Some cars require the brake to be engaged before they will start I am not sure about your unit but it is worth a try. It is likely something you will need to take to a dealer to fix unless you can find a Mechanic's "how to" book for your vehicle. With a 2003 diesel pusher, he will have the Allison 3000 transmission. No "park". Not aware of one wired to have need for brake application either.

RE: Lightweight Bicycle suggestion

Another option may be folding bikes which could be carried inside. Depends on how you use the bikes. The 7 speed folding Dahon's are very good bikes, but certainly not designed for off-road. Also, not inexpensive.

RE: Cummins 5.9 stalled and wont start. Injector pump?

You can manually pull the fuel shut-off solenoid into the "run position". Have seen them zip tied to run in an emergency. Of course to shut off the engine, you have to cut the zip ties.

RE: 1997 Country Coach Intrigue ATS problem

Before even looking at the ATS, turn OFF and back ON the two on-generator breakers.

RE: Location if AC Dash Air Drain 06 HR Navigator??

And, when you find it, SUCK ON IT, do NOT blow into it. You don't want to blow a blockage back into the A/C case. You want to remove the blockage. I know it doesn't sound nice, but that IS what you need to do.

RE: Cummins 5.9 stalled and wont start. Injector pump?

Copied from 1994 service manual. ENGINE CRANKS, BUT WILL NOT START and NO SMOKE FROM EXHAUST No fuel in supply tank. Electrical fuel shutdown solenoid not open. Air intake or exhaust plugged. Fuel filter plugged. Excessive fuel inlet restriction. Injection pump not getting fuel or fuel is aerated. Inoperative lift pump. One or more injectors worn or not operating properly. Worn or inoperative injection pump. Internal pump timing incorrect. Camshaft out of time. THIS is where to start.

RE: parking brake lock up

Yup if air pressure up (assume it is), then just rust holding shoes to drums. Rocking it usually frees it up.

RE: Allison 3000 transmission

Suspect with a 2000 model you can check fluid level from the Allison shift pad. What does it show?

RE: Firan Europremier

Hi, I'm looking to buy my 1st motor home. Thinking of europremier 1994 model, does it need CDL? DO I need to be concerned with engine noise? The one I saw is 35' Thanks much. Driver's License requirements vary by state, with many basing categories on GVWR. What state are you licensed in?

RE: gel cell chargging questions

OK, if you really want to fine-tune your alternator output, install one of these: http://www.xantrex.com/power-products/power-accessories/alternator-regulator.aspx We have one controlling the sailboat alternator. Programmable and allows multistage charging. Set it for the battery type you have. Necessary? NO.

RE: is it hard to change the fuel/water filter?

Ivylog, Agree. That is exactly how I change the filter on 2003 Cummins ISL. Install filter dry, turn key. Cycle a couple of times. Start and drive off. One of the other issues is how high the filter head is located relative to level of fuel in the tank. If the filter head is higher, when the filter is removed, the fuel will drain back to the tank, leaving you with 30+ feet of AIR in the fuel line. Best answer is to install a ball valve on the fuel inlet to your primary fuel filter.

RE: is it hard to change the fuel/water filter?

The procedure for changing filters completely depends on what engine and fuel system you have. What works well with one does NOT mean it will work with other systems. Each of our three diesel coaches had a different procedure for filter change/priming. Not better or worse, just different. PLEASE read your manual.

RE: Allison 3000 transmission

Just for information, I have a 2000 Itasca horizon with an Allison 3000 Freightliner change the fluid to Transyn without my knowledge. It would barely move, you would swear it needed a new transmission I took it back flushed out the transmission put the older style fluid in and it works perfect and has for over 80,000 miles. so beware of changing to synthetic on the older models. Interesting. Never heard of that. Allison has recommended upgrading to Transynd in older transmissions since Transynd's introduction. Did that in our 1993, 1997 and 2003 3000 series transmissions with no ill effects.

RE: is it hard to change the fuel/water filter?

We need more information to be able to give sage advice: Do you have one or two fuel filters? If one, is it on the suction side or pressure side of the lift pump. Said another way, is it between the tank and lift pump or between the lift pump and engine? Ball valve/shut off valve on primary/only fuel filter? Is the primary/only fuel filter above or below the level of fuel in the tank?

RE: Allison 3000 transmission

All posts above correct. Please tell us which Allison "expert" told you to only expect another 10-15k before rebuild. AND, what he based that opinion on. Sure, if he found a lot of metal, water, etc in the fluid/filters he could be right. But, this would be extremely rare.
