RE: Wifi antenna ideas

Steve, I use for the NS2 & for the router. Just pick some guffy numbers for the "C" & "D" locations. IE 192.168.XX.XX Just incase you missed my response to your PM. Here is the NS2 set up again. Richard

RE: Detroit series 40

Mike, When you get through shocking those that question your mentality about your DD40, show them a picture of your electrical bay. WOW! What a work of art!. I've had the privilege of driving and working on a CC just like yours. Drool....... Richard

RE: HWH leveling system 310

Here is the service manual. You should be able to figure it out from the manual. I agree with Doug. The shuttle valve or the plumbing in that area should be the problem. See the hydraulic schematic about halfway down the document. Richard

RE: Wifi antenna ideas

Here is the way I did it. http://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/23833682.cfm Richard Ok, so if I understand correctly, you use the nanostation as an antenna. It is connected via an Ethernet cable to the wrt54g which acts as a repeater and provides your 'local' wifi access. Maybe I missed something but what powers the nanostation? How is the nanostation holding up to the weather? Steve The NS2 uses Power Over Ethernet (POE). It comes with a POE inserter. 120 AC volts to 12 volts DC. Set it aside and build your own POE inserter that uses your RV 12 volt system. Another interesting note. The NS2 has a highly directional flat panel antenna that is driven with 400mw. It also has auto polarity for maximum signal strength. A 400mw directional antenna will outperform a 1000mw (1 watt) omnidirectional systems all day long. Also, with some systems there is coaxial signal loss. No coax, so no signal loss over long distance cable runs. Cat5 is good for about 300'. The NS2 is weather tight as long as it's in the upright position. Because mine is horizontal when stored, I sealed the bottom cover and entrance way for the cable. Richard

RE: I just paid $6.71 per gallon for diesel

You don't have to go to France to spend that kind of money on fuel. I spend over $6.00 a gallon for gas in northern BC & Yukon last year. It may be that high in the US by the time you get back? Richard

Mike, Is that CC in Julian California? If so I know some of its history. Richard

RE: What chassis....95 Damon 'Intruder'?

At the very least you should flush out the old brake fluid, but do you know if the brake system has ever been gone thru? It is going on twenty years old and everything is suspect to failure. When I got my Ford chassis motorhome, the brakes had very marginal stopping power. I replaced everything but the rotors. New master cylinder, pads, hoses and rebuilt calipers and fluid of course. Now it stops quite well for an 18,000 pound bread truck. Nick, Would you please leave a little more raisin bread on the shelves. It's always sold out. Richard

RE: What chassis....95 Damon 'Intruder'?

Seeing how you are posting in the Class A forum and have a Ford chassis, you have a F53 chassis with 4 wheel disk brakes. No adjusters. The caliper pistons move in the bore to adjust for pad wear. Your brake system does require that you remove the calipers every two years to clean and lube the slide mechanism. While you're there, check the caliper pistons for binding in the bore. You'll also need to change the brake fluid every two years. There has been a lot of brake complaints on the older Ford F53 (460 V8) chassis. If maintained properly, the the system works well, but requires more maintenance that most disk brake systems. Richard 95 Bounder F53

RE: alternator not charging

No, you are not stuck. Crank up your generator and let your inverter/charger do the work of the alternator by holding your boost switch down. Wedge something under it and you only need it on for 10 minutes/hour. Probably not a good idea to do this ,the solenoids (on my coach and many others I have seen) used for this are not designed for continuous duty and will overheat and melt,causing you other problems. As designed by RV Custom Products for Fleetwood, the isolator relay in your BCC is indeed a continuous duty relay. It may look like an old Ford intermittent duty starter relay, but looks can be deceiving. On almost all coached built in the last 20-30 years, the isolator relay is engaged when the engine is running so all batteries are charged. That requires a continuous duty relay. Richard

RE: My Ford E40D transmission won’t shift out of overdrive

The OD button is a ground toggle for the ECM. Chances are you have a bad button or broken wire. The Button assembly is still available from Ford. Go to http://www.irv2.com/forums/f23/ and post your problem. Hopefully "subford" will respond with a wiring print. Richard

RE: North Platte Nebraska

We stayed at the Buffalo Bill Ranch State Recreation campground. Nothing real fancy and only about 30 sites but the cost was reasonable and they did have 30 and 50 amp service. It is a few miles away from the train yard. Obviously you do not mind the noise from the trains or you wouldn't even be considering staying in North Platte. Enjoy Stayed there in 2006. Water spicket every 3rd site and no dump station on the grounds. Hopefully the services have improved by now. Richard

RE: 1989 Onan Generator ingnition coil question

Yes a bad condenser will prevent your ignition system from working. Take the old one to an auto parts house. Look for an old fart behind the counter that remember condensers being on cars. GRIN... Have him find one that will fit your application. Like I said before. They are all .23mf capacitance. Richard

RE: 1989 Onan Generator ingnition coil question

Jeffery, A condenser (capacitor) (small silver container) of that age could be your problem. Almost all point/capacitor ignition systems use a .23mf condenser. So any condenser from a point ignition system that you can fit in will work. Surely you have an old condenser from a 1949 chevy on the shelf? GRIN. Richard

RE: Fixing a REALLY old American Apliance (Suburban) water heater

Way to go! It's always nice to see someone thinking out side the box. It now looks like you have all the safety of the original install. Those that don't understand will always find a way to condemn. Richard

RE: Disposing of old A/C

IF that old AC lost its charge due to fatigued/cracked lines, there is no hazardous material to reclame. ;) ;) Thus you do not need to pay a reclaimer. Richard

RE: help with parking brake on 88 34ft pace arrow w, ford chasis

What chassis is that 88 PA on? Oshkosh or Ford f53 RICHARD John deere ford chassis Actually that would be a John Deere/Oshkosh/Freightliner chassis with Ford 460 and C6 tranny. Freightliner purchased Oshkosh and can provide you with info and parts. If the E brake is an assembly bolted on the end of the tranny, then you have a 4WD C6 case with a ZF ebrake assemby bolted on. You could just remove the clevis pin near the brake assembly, to make sure the E brake is released. Richard

RE: Class A wandering ?

The Workhorse chassis all have solidly mounted front and rear sway bars. There is no rubber bushings to wear out or adjustment on them since they are bolted steel to steel. Caster and Camber angle is fixed on the W series chassis and only the toe-in can be adjusted. It is important to have the alignment checked with a loaded coach on the W series chassis. Almost true. Caster is adjustable, and under extrema conditions the axle can be bent to adjust camber. Richard

RE: Generator Hunting Under Load

Jim, Before you start buying pieces/parts or bending things, look under the float bowl for the altitude adjustment screw and give it a 1/4 to 1/2 turn out. The surge indicates that the generator is going lean under load. Richard
