RE: Engine Battery Not Charging

As designed by Fleetwood, you engine battery should charge when plugged in. The most common cause of engine battery not charging on Fleetwood products is the isolator relay in the Battery Control Center (BCC). A wiring schematic is provided on the inside of the BCC cover. Look for the round/silver relay. This has been a Fleetwood feature since the early 90s. The rest of the manufactures were late in introducing this feature, or not at all. Richard

RE: Best Product To Glue and Seal a Large Hole on the Roof

If you mounted the panels about 3" above the opening, you could use a vent to fill the hole. Richard

RE: Ford F-53 Chassis - Nude

You can see more photos on Ford's site. Interesting that the next to last photo shows a coil spring front suspension. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Richard

RE: Possible Engine Upgrades

Oh...One more thing, Those old Q-Jet carbs have a problem that the floats get old and absorb fuel causing them to screw up the fuel level in the carb bowl. Replace em. That should read: Oh...One more thing, Those old Q-Jet carbs have a problem that the float gets old and absorbs fuel causing it to screw up the fuel level in the carb bowl. Replace it. It only has one float. Richard

RE: Generator and Ethanol

When you can't figure out what the real problem is, blame E10 gasoline. Richard

RE: Has anyone had to change a Ford V-10 fan clutch

Pulling the radiator, which would require removing the AC condenser and having to recharge the AC, is just nuts. Any mechanic worth his weight in tools can change the fan clutch with out removing the radiator. On my Ford 460 F53, I can R&R the fan clutch in less than an hour, through the dog house. Your mileage may vary. :R Richard

RE: 1992 454 7.4 liter oil

You want to learn about engine oil. Go to Bob is the oil guy and read the articles in the provided link. Really good stuff. Richard

RE: New Guy with 1990 Fleetwood Southwind

darsben, thanks for the links. The tires are brand new! RLS7201, the engine is fuel injected. So that means it must be the F53 chassis, right? Yes, a 1990 F53 chassis is fuel injected with E4OD 4 speed OD transmission. The only other option is a 1991 Oshkosh chassis under a 1990 coach with fuel injection and 3 speed C6 tranny. Soooooo what transmission do you have? Richard

RE: New Guy with 1990 Fleetwood Southwind

If your Southwind has a Ford 460 engine, it could be on a Ford F53 chassis or an Oshkosh chassis. If Ford F53 chassis it will have a 4 speed E4OD OD transmission and fuel injected engine. If it's on a Oshkosh chassis it will have a 3 speed C6 transmission and a carburetor. Freightliner owns Oshkosh and offers support. There are Ford chassis CDs on the internet. Can't help with the Oshkosh chassis. Richard

RE: fuel line

Of course you could also have a bad/weak fuel pump. You sprayed fuel in to the carb and it ran. This bypasses the fuel pump. On a 2011 model I would be more suspect of a bad/weak fuel pump than a bad fuel line. Sucking fuel from a near by can is not the same as sucking fuel from your main tank. Just saying...... Exactly correct. The fuel pump will be working harder lifting fuel from the can on the ground than when it's pulling fuel from a higher frame mounted tank. Richard

RE: Brake Issues - 1998 Bounder

When you get your brake problems worked out, you might want to have a look at your sway bar bushings. You last picture shows a bad bushing. There is a guy on Ebay that has urethane bushings for all the Ford F53 chassis. Good stuff at a fair price. Your 1998 coach is on a 1999 chassis, so the bushings in the link will work. Richard

RE: Ford V10 no starting power

There is a wiring schematic for the BCC on the inside of the cover. Trace back the unpowered section with a volt meter until you find where the voltage is. Richard

RE: Space behind couch-too much

Where did you get the trim. Mine is shot too, and burgundy looks great. My trim was shot too. I found wood grain trim at Walt's RV. The vinyl was shrinking and pulling loose. I replaced it with high quality shelf liner, also wood grain. Rather than mess with the original shelf material, I made new shelves from 1x4 pine. Richard 95 Bounder

RE: Chevy Workhorse parking brake electrical system

Read this web site. It's the best place to find info on P32 chassis like yours. It has a whole section on your "autopark" brake problem. Richard

RE: Space behind couch-too much

Jim has it right. My 95 Bounder had a shelf mounted 2" below the window. I moved the shelf up tight against the window frame and was able to move the couch back 2" closer to the wall and it still missed the wall when made into a bed. Made a big difference in my 8' coach with no slides. Richard

RE: What has happened to Winnebago Quality?

This whole thread only reinforces why I keep polishing my 95 Bounder. Richard

RE: Spout

It's located on the outside of the fire wall in front of the drivers feet. Look for a aluminum heat sink with the ignition module on it. The spout plug will be hanging just below the ignition module. It may be partly obscured by the radiator over flow tank. The spout connector is the easy part. Seeing the timing marks is a challenge. Richard 95 Bounder F53

RE: My Engine replacement odyssey - 1994 HR

Thank you very much for posting your project. Now I know my engine will come out the front when I do my engine swap this year. Safe and happy travels Richard Dang Richard, now I realize I didn't take any photos of how I arranged the engine lift. To summarize, I removed the intake manifold and bolted a tight chain from one head to the other across the middle. I didn't use the hook on the beam but rather attached the chain directly to the beam where the hook would normally be. That way I gave it as much lift clearance as possible and could still tilt the engine front and rear to clear the lower front frame member with the oil pan. But yep, it'll come out the front. Also tried to put the RV at a height where the crane beam was as level as possible when the engine was lifted as high as it would go. PM me if what I've written here isn't clear. Steve PS Now that I'm done I don't envy the task you have in front of you. Thanks Steve, In one of your pictures I could see the crane beam was very close to the valley and you used a second chain for the front of the engine. So yes, I picked up on what you did. Clever. Being an old gear head, I don't fear the up coming event. I have my concrete RV pad next to my garage and will be under no time constraints. The cherry picker, engine stand and transmission jack are in the garage waiting. Just got a call from my engine builder and my 8.6L BBF short block will be shipping on 6/23/15. Safe travels Richard
