RE: Power Wahser to Clean Rear Radiator

Yes, that is the crankcase breather hose (aka slobber tube). No second picture showing an extension, so can't comment. Again, the #1 cause of oil from crankcase breather is overfilling the engine oil. If you have the engine serial number I can look up the correct capacity.

RE: Power Wahser to Clean Rear Radiator

Scott, As you suggest, not overfilling the oil is the #1 way to prevent oil coming out the crankcase breather-- applies to any diesel engine built before 2007. But, correct oil capacity for Caterpillar engines is a little more complicated than stated. Many shallow pan 3126's are 19 quarts, but some 22. Deep pan (aluminum pan) are 29 quarts, but some 27 and some 30. Best advice is to call the Caterpillar RV Hotline with your engine serial number: 877 777-3126.

RE: Power Wahser to Clean Rear Radiator

So, a rear radiator fan blows air and a side radiator fan sucks air. One then cleans the rear radiator from the engine side and a side radiator from the outside? CORRECT.

RE: Power Wahser to Clean Rear Radiator

Do not use regular Simple Green as it leaves a residue. Use Extreme Simple Green The other reason to use Simple Green Extreme is that it is Aluminum-friendly. And most CAC (Charge Air Coolers) are aluminum. Remember, the VAST majority of the dirt is on the front of the CAC, which "filters" the dirt before it gets to the radiator which is behind the CAC on the vast majority of rear radiator coaches.

RE: Power Wahser to Clean Rear Radiator

I have asked two Cat dealers about extending the slobber tube and they both had never done it and did not recommend it. Yes, I have read the threads about doing that but I want to be sure it is done correctly. Yes, I know that the way the slobber tube is now, it is blowing gung onto the radiator which is why I would like to do this more than once per year. This last trip, we went up and down a very steep mountain and blew gunk all over the toad and the back of the coach so I am sure the radiator got hit as well. Sorry, you have not talked with knowledgeable people. Freightliner even has a kit for extending the crankcase breather. Would LOVE to hear their reasoning for not extending it. BTW, for about $12 worth of parts YOU can extend it. Let me know if you need the parts list and instructions.

RE: Converter/Charger Voltage vs. Battery Voltage

Are the batteries fully charged when you read this voltage difference? If not, it is likely line loss (resistance in wires from charger to batteries). The more the amps you are pushing to the batteries, the more the line voltage drop from resistance in the wires and connections.

RE: Alternator

Yes, unless you have a external sense wire that is broken. As suggested, check wiring first.

RE: House Power issue

When my generator is run I have power to run A/C and frig. swithes from propane to electric But when I connect land power 110 volts 30 amp frig/AC does not work. When I checked recepitcals out with plug tester and it shows Hot/GRD reverse which does not make sence to me. Any suggestions? Either you coach is mis wired or the outlet is miswired. Is this a new issue? Have you experienced it in other CG's?

RE: info Chevy P30 hydro boost brake/power sterring bleeding

Some confusion here. Some are discussing bleeding the hydraulic brakes (i.e. brake fluid). Some are discussing bleeding the hydraulic booster (ATF). Both are important, but unrelated in terms of how it is done.

RE: info Chevy P30 hydro boost brake/power sterring bleeding

Contact info for Roger Haag (old used bear): oldusedbear@gmail.com One issue that can lead to inability to bleed the PS system is an autopark brake that is out of adjustment. Too much slack/clearance between brake shoes and brake drum can require the use of so much fluid to release the brake that you drain the PS reservoir of fluid. So air is re-introduced to the system.

RE: Nitrogen Dealer Near Baltimore, MD

If you are not able to find a N2 source near you, be sure you use DRY air. If you have an air suspension coach with air dryer, that is quite acceptable (and I am picky)! Dry air and N2 both follow the ideal gas law (i.e. PSI change with temperature change). It is air with water in it that can mess you up.

RE: C7 oil pan rust

The aluminum pans are the DEEP SUMP pans. The stamped steer are the SHALLOW SUMP pans.

RE: Change Shurflo pump on 1998 Safari Sahara .

If your 1998 Safari Sahara is like our 1997 Sahara, remove the transverse panel (carpeted plywood) on the front side of the wet bay. The pump is then easily accessed.

RE: Question about diesel brakes

Not aware of any "sub-par" braking systems on DP's. There are: air drum/drum air disk/drum air disk/disk hydraulic over hydraulic disk/disk air over hydraulic disk/disk All are well-proven systems. Yes, "care and feeding" varies depending on what you have. And, your Cummins L may have an exhaust brake, or it could have an engine compression brake-- both were available on the L engine.

RE: Possible Over Heating Allison Tranny (UPDATE)

Normal. When in stop and go, when at a LONG stoplight, place the transmission in neutral. In gear in 1st and low speeds in 2nd is the only time the torque converter is not locked up on your Allison 6 speed.

RE: Tire pressures

Go to Michelin's RV tire guide and look up the PSI for the tire/load you have on there now.
