RE: What did you do to your Class A MH today???

I installed LED head lights in the ol 95 Bounder last week. Then I took the MH to a dark parking lot and aimed them. They light up the road with out getting in on coming traffics eyes. I just hate it when people change their headlight and don't get them aimed properly! They don't do the driver any good when the shine in my eyes. Richard

RE: 4k BGE generator turns over slowly

OK, you check the ground, and it's good. What about the positive side? I'll bet the generator starter cable doesn't go straight to the battery. Find all the connections between the battery and starter and make sure they are good. Is there a house battery disconnect switch? Richard

RE: Functional difference between JLLN and ANL type fuses

JLLN fuses are rated for 300 volts. ANL/CNL fuses are rated for 32 volts. Both are fast acting. I don't see an issue with either one on a 12 volt DC system. Richard

RE: Braking Conundrum

There a few states, Texas being one, that require an air brake endorsement on your drivers licence, if you're registered in Texas, to operate a coach with air brakes. Sooooooooo, it's not just jump in and drive in all states. Richard

RE: Electrical issue

The way I do it is to brush the negative post with the cable- get a spark- immediately do it again. If it's a load, you will get sparks both time- a capacitor charging, you only get a spark the first time. Why didn't I think of that? Thanks. Richard

Go to the licence bureau and get the training manual for CDL with air brakes. Read and learn. Nothing really special, just good common ¢. Richard

RE: Verizon "Home Phone"

You might try a Ferrite noise filter on the ground lines. Cheap and easy to try. The more passes you make throught the filter, the better it works. We had a simular issue with a 12 volt Blue Ray player and our 12 volt TV. The Ferrite filter on the ground wires fixed our problem. We also use a Verizon Home Phone Connect. Both at home and in the RV, using the RV batteries and a cradel phone when on the road. Best deal in town. Ferrite Filters Richard

RE: Best Route Houston to Branson

If you are going to Branson, you are going to be in the mountains. Best way to get there is a toss-up. Those "foot hills" in the Ozarks are just a fun drive. The real mountains are a few hundred miles west. Just mosey up through Texarkana, I30 to Little Rock and 65 to Branson. About 600 miles. The steep hills are north, between Branson and I40. Richard

RE: Steering wheel not straight

So many misinformed posts. Ford has only a single adjustment for setting the toe so it's likely the steering wheel will need to be re-centered after an alignment. Be sure to mark the original position before removing the steering wheel. There is no master spline so the wheel can be reinstalled in any position. You'll probably only need to move it 1 spline or possibly 2 at the most. The splines are on 4.5 degree centers so if your wheel is off less than that amount it will be off center slightly in the opposite direction when you reposition it.. Richard As mentioned by RLS7201 the Ford F53 steering linkage has only a single adjustment at the tie rod. Unlike the GM system you cannot lengthen one end and shorten the other to center the steering wheel. In addition there is now a master spline on the steering wheel to column connection and there are no adjustments on the original equipment drag link. Moving the steering wheel was the proper way to correct steering wheel misalignment on the 2007 and prior model years. It is covered under Ford's QVM Bulletin No. Q-59. Otherwise known as F53 motorhome chassis clear vision and alignment policy change. The only way to straighten the steering wheel on the 2008 and newer chassis is to disconnect the steering shaft from the steering gear box and move it one or more splines until the steering wheel is properly centered. If I remember correctly I believe moving the shaft one spline will move the steering wheel 2*. This is normally part of the procedure if the alignment moves the steering wheel off center. Centering the steering wheel using this method is covered in the Ford Workshop manual. Thanks Hikerdogs, I was unaware of the 2008 changes. That puts us back to the same Clear Vision procedures used on the pre 99 chassis. Notes taken. Not sure what a SOB chassis has to do with this thread? GRIN Richard

RE: Gas tank replacement/upgrade

100 gallons would be on the smallish side for most diesel coaches and not at all unusual on a gas coach. He also mentions a conversion to ethanol which I can't imagine being done on a diesel engine. I've been wrong before, however! Pre fuel injected class a gas coaches did have 100 gallon fuel tanks. Post fuel injected class a gas coaches have 75-80 gallon tanks. Richard

RE: Have I told you lately

My ol 95 Bounder hasn't cost me a ¢ this month either. Did I mention that it's parked on the pad winterized, shivering in the 26° weather. Richard

RE: Auto Park on a John Deer chassis?

Here are some pic's taken from the John Deer Chassis manual I have for this GBM. Does it look like the GM autobrake? No. That is not the same as the Auto Park system used by GM on the P32 chassis. Richard

RE: My solar and the chassis batteries

Thanks Richard, Just as I was going to open this post I realized I had disconnected that solenoid three days ago and I had not checked the chassis battery voltage since BUT I just looked and they are sitting at 12.7 so I'm OK. "Your 07 Fleetwood Discovery uses a BCC from RV Custom Products. Fleetwood made the change over from Intellitec to RV Custom Products about 1994." OK, so it has Intellitec on the outer cover but your telling me it's a RV Custom Products? I'll dig a little deeper. Why not let the solar maintain both banks? You think I should also be equalizing the chassis batteries at 16.2 as well? Another reason I'd like to disable that solenoid. Thanks for the link, if you look thru that forum you will find me as well! I'll ask Old Bounder, good idea! RM Maybe Fleetwood mixed the brands of BCC on some models. I do know Fleetwood financed the start up of RV Customs Products in the early 90s, to reduce costs. It's very possible that supply and demand made for using Intellitec in some later applications. If you intend on equalizing at 16+ volts, then you idea of a switch on the isolator relay makes ¢. Richard

RE: 1996 Bounder Auto Park

Good catch by tropical36. 96 Was the first year for the port injected vortec. It was a vast improvement over its predecessor. At 290 HP, it would get down the road and up the hills. Just make sure that 96 coach is on a 96 chassis. It will say Vortec on the engine if it's a 96. Richard
