RE: Unicorns, Bigfoot, Nessie And Now T H I S...

Energy and pollution is a vicious circle. No free lunches. LNG also has its short comings. Leaking natural gas wells. I suggest birth control as the best possible solution to pollution. Flack jacket on. Richard

RE: New to Class A are lots of steering corrections normal?

There are alignment shops and there are almost alignment shops. Most want to get it close to specs., which in many cases is not good enough. Lots of alignment equipment out there but darn few really good alignment personal. When you pay for an alignment and it don't drive well, you went to the wrong place. Precision Alignment in MN. and Henderson's Line-up in Grants Pass, OR. are two of the best. Richard

RE: Heater Turned on in Cab, Motor Home engine shut down.

Christopher, When asking questions about your MH, it is always helpful to know what chassis brand you have. In you case, you could have a P32 Chevy, F53 Ford or an Oshkosh/Freightliner. Always start with the simplest and lest expensive items when trouble shooting. As previously suggested, check all battery cable connections and the battery its self. Richard

RE: Any reason not to drill holes to ventilate inverter?

I have the very same HF inverter, that you linked to, running the entertainment center in my MH, which includes a satellite receiver. Never had an overheating problem with it and the fan is not annoying. Maybe you should consider a warranty exchange. There are 5 volt fans on eBay and Amazon that will have USB cords attached. I use a USB fan on my satellite receiver to help cool it. Richard

RE: Rear Trac Bar for 1995 F-53??

The rear spring stack on older (460) F53s is more like a truck and didn't allow for excessive lateral rear end movement. A rear track bar is not needed. I made the mistake of installing a read track bar on my 95 F53 and it made no difference in handling. Use the money saved to take your wife out on the town. Richard

RE: Hot Transmission, what can I do?

200 degrees is pretty much normal and acceptable for that transmission. The reason it heats when going down hill is because the torque converter unlocks when you tap the brakes. Under normal pulling conditions, the torque converter stays locked until you drop in to 1st gear. My 95 Bounder 460/E40D runs the same temperature range as yours. Mine was still working well at 140,000 miles but was pulled for rebuild when I put in the new stroker engine. Richard

RE: Zep floor finish

I did mine about 5 years ago. I give the front another coat every spring, sometimes 2, and the whole thing shines. I have had no problem with it discoloring, flaking, or coming off other than the front cap. I my case it has worked very well. So on the initial treatment, did you do the full prep work before applying the Zep? BKF and TSP with the 3M scrubbies?? I am planning to do the job myself this year, but am NOT looking forward to two-three days of the hand-scrubbing with the two different cleaners. There's no gloss anywhere on mine, but I guess the two cleaners are necessary to make sure all oxidation is removed first. I suggest that only one of the cleaners is necessary. Pick one and go for it. Richard

RE: 95 Fleetwood Bounder

Tell us if it's a Ford F53 or a Chevy P32 chassis. They both have their quirks. I drive a 95 Bounder on a Ford chassis. I might have some in site. Richard

RE: Zep floor finish

RLS7201 did you do the recommended yearly one or two touch up coats or just once every 3 years? What did you clean you mh with before you started the process? I am considering going this way and all info helps. I did not follow up with a yearly touch up coat. I prepared the surface with TSP (trisodiom phosphate) and a green scotch bright. This is where I get reprimanded for scuffing up the surface to make it shiny. No coating will work properly on a smooth surface. Then rinsed the surface with a clean cloth and garden hose to make sure there was no TSP residue. Zep also has a stripper that you will need in 3 years. Richard

RE: Zep floor finish

I have Zep Wet Look on my ol 95 Bounder. It doesn't yellow but it does start to flake off after about 3 years. During that time I don't have to wax, only wash it and the bugs come off the front easily. It takes me about 3 days to strip and reapply 3-4 coats. Soooooooo, I only spend 3 days every 3 years making the coach shine. Your mileage may vary. Richard

RE: Older Bounder~What lights do these swtiches control?

On Bounders in the 90s, the utility light switch turns on the under hood light and the left side, out side, utility light. Richard

RE: Awning replacement material?

I have 20 year old acrylic on my MH. One patio and 4 window awnings. No rips or drips. If you balance the price against time served, it costs no more than vinyl. Richard

RE: Duel Fuel Class A

It's been a few years ago, but at one time I purchased service parts for a customer who had stationary engines that ran on methane. Valve wear was a problem (lack of lubrication). We had to source special hardened valves and seats and service life was rather short. I believe propane engines share that characteristic. The lack of Tetraethyl Lead was the reason for valve stem and valve seat failure in converted engines. That problem has since been addressed when lead free gas was introduced in the 70s. All engines designed for lead free gas will convert to propane or other spark ignited fuels with no problem. Richard

RE: How to run 2 ac units on one genset

You can run 13.5 & 11,000BTU ACs on 30 amp shore power. Fleetwood has been do it since 1996. Load shedding was used by Fleetwood but you can do your own energy management by making sure the refrigerator and water heater are on propane. You will need to shut down one AC when using a microwave or other such high amperage item. At sea level, a 4K generator should provide enough energy for both ACs. Do the math. Richard This statement is not really true. Fleetwood had RVP(Coleman) build a lo amp draw AC unit(both 13.5 and 11) that with both could run on 30 amp service. Those units had a hard time cooling as well as higher amp draw 13.5 and 11k units. So, to state that all 13.5 and 11 can run on 30 amp service is wrong. You must have those specific RVP units to do that. Those lo amp units are not real common now since so many RV's are 50 amp service. Doug What ever you say Doug. Just remind those that have added a second, non-RVP AC to their 30 amp rigs that it won't work. Richard

RE: Would You Purchase?

Three things to think about seriously. 1: As we age, we get up in the middle of the night more often. The person sleeping in the most forward position of that drop down bed will need to crawl over their mate or drop down the front side and crawl under the bed. That is just why we didn't buy a Trek. 2: Find out exactly what size that forward mounted diesel engine is and do some serious research. GM had a V8 diesel in that era that was not one of their best efforts. 3: If the coach is mounted on a Chevy P32 chassis, with independent front suspension, you may need to invest in upgrade components to make it drive acceptable. Or maybe that has already been done. Robert Henderson @ HENDERSON Line Up is the top expert on those old chassis. Richard

RE: Changing taillights out to LED's

Tara361, Do as Mike did, change the whole lens. They are from Bargman. The LED replacement bulbs won't give any better light. I changed the whole lens assembles on my 95 F53 chassis and had to add a small resistor to both sides, for the stop lights. The computer saw a small induced voltage on the stop light wires and the cruse control and torque converter would work, or not work, randomly. I had room behind the tail light assemblies to add a couple of 921 bulbs for resistance. I can tell you the lights are now much brighter and there is no excuse for not seeing my turn signals. Richard

RE: 93 Bounder won't move when tranny is in drive position

If you do have a 460 engine then you have an E4OD transmission. Those older Ford transmissions would take off in second when the shift lever was in "2". That would explain why you was able to limp to the gas station. Now you need to find the reason why 1st gear is not working properly. Your torque converter is probably OK. Else wise, you wouldn't have been able to move in 2nd gear. Richard

RE: two-wire? three-wire LPG detector connector? what?

Your old detector is probably a CCI 7719. CCI went out of business in 2008. The 2 red wires go to your 2 battery banks. The yellow wire goes to the solenoid/valve. The coil on the solenoid/valve is 9 volts DC @ 168ma. If you keep 12 volts applied to the coil for an extended period of time, the coil will burn out. 1: You can remove the solenoid valve and replace the detector with a cheap 2 wire detector. You will then loose the capacity of the detector turning off the propane in case of a leak. 2: You can purchase a 3 wire detector, with 12 volt solenoid valve @ 1 amp, from Safe-T-Alert. for about $200 on Ebay. 3: Your CCI 7719 is repairable. Contact Larry at CCIRepairs@gmail.com for details. I have one of Larry's repaired detectors on my 95 Bounder. It's been flawless. Richard
