RE: Analog TV in my 2006 Hitchhiker

If you are going to spend some time off grid, you may want to consider 12 volt LED TVs. That way you won't need an inverter to watch TV. Just look on the back of the TVs for a removable power cord with the power supply in the cord. Power supply may say 14 volts but it will work on your batteries. Richard

RE: Solar panel fuse

The 3 amp fuse for your factory solar panel is in the battery control center. Black metal box built by RV Custom Products. Should be under the hood on your vintage. Wiring print is on the back side of the cover. The LED lamp indicator, for the OEM solar, inside your coach, is subject to fail. It is combined with 3 diodes to make it glow. Wiring print available if needed. The factory wires are just barely large enough for the factory 5 watt panel. Do NOT use the already installed wires. They are to small. Consider running the new larger wires down the refrigerator vent. Richard

RE: Looking at 96 Bounder has a small bulge

That bulge is in line with the refrigerator. Looks like the refrigerator has been push into the wall. Richard

RE: Pace Arrow 36 D

I've always leaned to Ford products but the Workhorse W chassis is an excellent MH chassis. The 8.1 Chevy engine has proven strong and reliable and the Allison transmission is the best. When Workhorse was still building MH chassis, they was not very customer oriented. The aftermarket has picked up some of the slack and there is a lot of support at Oemys Performance. Fleetwood's Pace Arrow has always been a nice coach. If well maintain, I thing you are looking at a nice coach. Richard

RE: Battery/ charging question

Batteries week. I give up. When is battery "week"? I missed the celebration. Only kidding. I made a typo once in my life too. Richard

RE: Tank monitor lights 96 Bounder

If your panel is mounted on the lower, left side of the dash, it was prone to failure from new. It's easy to remove but getting the nuts back on when reinstalling can be quite interesting. It never read the tanks very well, depending on how much stuff was left on the sides of the waste tanks. You time may be better spent looking at an aftermarket tank/propane/battery monitor. SeeLevel is a popular brand.

RE: How to lubricate fan bearings in furnace?

As previously noted, the fan has bushings not roller or ball bearings. The squeal is because of bushing and shaft wear. Lubrication will only cause the squeal to go away for a short period of time. The motor needs to be replaced. Richard

RE: Looking at 96 Bounder has a small bulge

Tell us what model Bounder you are looking at. The kitchen can be on either side, depending on the model. IE: 28?, 30E, 32H, 34P, 34J, 35U, etc. Also, what size is the protrusion? Richard

RE: Running the AC from the Onan

Look closely at the letters on the panel. They say SHED not SERP. I suspect the refrigerator and water heater are on AC, causing the Intellitec smart load/climate control system to shed until the generator is warmed up. If every thing is working as designed, you should be able to run 1 A/C (with out Refrig or water heater) as soon as the auto transfer switch switches over to generator. That 7K Onan generator is a strong unit. Electronic Climate Control Service Manual. I sit corrected. 95 was the last year of the 7K gas Onan in Bounders. 96 Bounders with 2 A/Cs were only 5K. Richard

RE: Generator takes a long time to start now.

RL S7201, How do you replace the oring on the altitude adj knob? Thanks Just remove (unscrew) the altitude adjuster and you'll see the "O" ring on the adjuster. Take it to any automotive parts store and purchase the correct size "O" ring. Richard

RE: Geico Claim AFTER blowout

Dennis, I feel your pain. Hopefully you may have some legal options. Here in MO., if the claim is not settled in 90 days, the insurance company has to file a lot of paper work with the state insurance commission. Which they don't like. I've had to out wait a couple of claims but the insurance companies started playing fair about the 85th day. Do what you can to make them have to shuffle a lot of paper work. Learn their game and play it better than they do. Maybe you should have a talk with the state insurance commission. In some states they are your advocate. Richard

RE: Generator run at different speeds

I suspect you are experiencing battery failure. Have your batteries load tested. Richard

RE: Generator takes a long time to start now.

Your vintage Onan does NOT have a shut off valve on the bottom of the carburetor. It does have an altitude adjustment on the bottom of the carburetor. If the "O" ring on the altitude adjustment needle is bad, it will let the float bowl drain, when the engine is shut off. Easy, no cost item to check first. Richard

RE: Best Route around Kansas City

Unless you are here in rush hour, I35 through the city is an easy drive. No stop lights. 2 exchanges that require you to slow down to 35-40 MPH. Roads are good. Maybe some construction on the very southern end, around Olathe, KS. Richard

RE: DIN? (School Is In) Nerd Fodder

Remember when the USA used to be the world leader in technology and standards? I helped institute ISO 2000 in my work place. It was all about paper work. Didn't improve the quality of any thing. Wouldn't it be great if we were leaders again and not followers. Richard

RE: How should I address this window leak?

I use 3M window weld when cleaning and resealing my dual pane windows. Sticks to glass, metal, rubber, etc. Never had a failure. Richard

RE: strange tire question

And then there are those of us that don't have a problem with steel braided extenders. I've been RVing for 23 years and NEVER had a steel braided extender failure. Richard
