RE: Water Pump/Supply problem

If the pump run dry, the old valves in the pump may not seal enough to prime the pump. If you can, remove the inlet pipe and prime the pump, it may work again. Richard

RE: tag axle MH sagging... what to do?

RE: Loud water pump

Many times the pump is mounted on a surface that acts like a sound board. Some insulator bushings often help. The 2 hoses hooked to the pump could be transmitting the sound. Some flexible hoses may be in order. In my case, the pex plumbing under the tub was vibrating on the floor structure. I don't care for eliminating all the pump noise. I want to know when it's running, in case of a leak. Richard

RE: tag axle MH sagging... what to do?

I was unaware that Oshkosh used coil springs on their drive axles. That being the case, you might add air bags inside the coil springs (like the front of P32 chassis). Or you might contact some one like Robert Henderson at Henderson Line Up. for spring replacement guidance. Richard

RE: 235/85/16 Tires - What are you running?

Both Michelin XPS and Bridgstone R250 are all steel cord and have less side wall flex than other brands with fabric cord side walls. I tried cooper's best and didn't like the side wall flex. Cooper took them back. Richard

RE: Onan Microlite 2800 Will Not Start

The 4 wires are probably for the remote start, inside the camper. Richard

RE: Tail shaft bushing replacement

agesilaus: I've researched the various you tube videos and could not find anything specific enough for my application. Thanks for the suggestion. RLS7201: Do you have the manufacturer's name for the tool you're referring to? I might just go out and buy one. One Ford dealer said they wouldn't mess around with changing the bushing and would just change the whole transmission. Yeah right! As it turns out, Ford doesn't sell just the bushing as a replacement part. They will only sell you the whole extension housing for around $350. Talk about ripping the public off! What I have is a set of very old Snap On pullers. http://i.imgur.com/QBPjMcql.jpg Another option for removing the bushing is, remove the extension housing and use any thing that will push the bushing out with out damaging the housing. Then press the new bushing in. The edge of the new bushing may get burred. Just take a pocket knife and clean up the burr. OR..........take the extension housing and bushing to a transmission shop.

RE: Tail shaft bushing replacement

There are expandable pullers that slide inside the bushing and then use a puller bolt on the end of the transmission shaft, to remove the bushing. Then you use a properly sized driver to install the new bushing. You might be able to rent/barrow said tools from an automotive parts house. If you was in the KC metro area, you could borrow mine.

RE: Onan carburetor float has fuel inside of float

Onan does NOT have RV Carb parts or kits. At least since 1993. You have to buy the complete carb assbly. OLDER RV Onans, you can still get carb rebuild kits. Doug Doug, Early 2003, I purchased a needle & float kit for my 1995 Onan Marquis 7000 NHM for the outrageous fee of $35.00. The float had cracked. Richard

RE: Using 50 amp for 30 amp system

Hi Richard, Plug in devices are not covered under NEC. I have a "break out box" which I use. It contains one 30 amp female plug with a 30 amp breaker, and two 20 amp outlets, each with their own 20 amp breakers. The #10 cord can't draw more than the 30 amps that the RV main breaker allows. That makes the question a "non issue". I find it interesting that your 10 gauge cord, from pedestal to coach main breaker, will be protected by a 50 amp breaker. Always wondered how that fits in the NEC. Richard Maybe I should have been more specific. The 10 gauge, 30 amp cord is not protected properly. If the cord shorts out, then 50 amps can pass through the cord. That is an issue. That is before the RV 30 amp main breaker. Boom, bang, flash, fire! Richard

RE: Winterizing Questions

if you don't put any in the fresh tank, how do you get AF into the pump and strainer? You install a winterizing kit.

RE: Inspections

All most all "experts" in the RV industry are "self anointed". RVIA is directed by the movers and shakers in the RV industry. (The manufactures write the rules by which they play by) NRVIA is a private company that decided it was smart enough to qualify others, for a fee. Even the "UL" label is a "self anointed" entity. I like to think that I'm knowledgeable about 460 Fords and older F53s. But..........I'm also "self anointed". So............Who ya going to trust? Richard

RE: BayLite Hall Effect DC volt amp meter

How impossible is it to extend the donut leads? Mex, I cut the supplied short lead (12" I think) and added 30' of CAT 5 cable. It still works as designed. Go for it! Richard

RE: Which RV GPS?

If you have a notebook computer another option is DeLorme's Street Atlas with their gps unit that plugs into a USB port on your notebook. I like it since it has a much bigger screen (depending on how big your computer screen is) and you can do trip planning in your home. The combo gps with software is probably cheaper than buying a dedicated unit. They run frequent sales too. MS Streets and Trips had a better interface but MS pulled the plug on it. X2...........And much better resolution than a stand alone GPS. Zooming in and out with the mouse is a great feature too. Your tires ol eyes will thank you. richard

RE: Cell Company

We have service from both Verizon & AT&T. When traveling west of the Mississippi River, it is rare that AT&T fails when we have Verizon service. Big Bend Texas & Alaska are AT&T country and Verizon fails. Pick your poison. Richard

RE: Fleetwood Bounder engine troubles - need advice please

i could get another 460 engine brand new but they get such horrid mileage compared to the diesels, as for noise i can sound proof with dynamat. Generators easy, propane conversion already coming. Obviously you're at the top of your game. Don't you just hate it when you have to justify your actions to those that are several steps behind you. It will be interesting following your progress.
