So confused I was stranded

I hope I can explain this..lol WE were dry camping all Friday and Saturday. I ran the generator everything ran great all weekend. we were at a R/c racing event. so getting ready to leave I started the RV Diesel PUSHER btw. went in to say buy and realized there were 2 more races and friend was in. so I turn off the Rv and kept Gen running. when is was time to go the rv wouldn't start at all. nothing click click like a bad battery x2. So tried to use the auxiliary battery button still nothing. the shift pad didn't even light up? but all the gages came on and head lights would work. So playing with the key it seem to get a light on the shift pad some times. But now the GEN SET turn off and wouldn't start back up again. what does the key or the rv main battery's has to do with the gen set? Anyway after many attempts of trying everything I can think of Me and my grandson got it to turn over 1 time then click. SO then we held the auxiliary button and the gen set button at the same time and the gen set would stay running let go of the auxiliary it would shut off. we ended up him holding the auxiliary button with the gen set running and I tried to start the rv Yay it started!!! so we took a chance and drove home about 30miles go to the house turn off the rv tried to start it DID NOT TURN OVER AT ALL. Ok now today 4/13/15 I checked the battery's with a lode tester it show weak but not bad. I then tested it with a Meter both showed 12.8 but still say weak. after charging them they show 13.8 on both but still said weak under the lode tester. checked all 3 of the couch batter's same this 12.8 ok under a lode. now after a full charge only like 20min the RV started right up. turn off and on starts right up. Did seem like there was a little drag. So I still don't know why this happen to start with. and why would the Gen set turn off when the key don't need to be on for it to run. And once its stared its not pulling power from the mean battery's right? I thought for sure I was buying new Battery's today. Now im not sure what to think.

RE: Purchased 1993 Coachmen Diesel pusher for 4k now what?

That was a great deal for sure! If that is the vinyl ceiling with the from backing. I would replace it all with a carpet ceiling. I had replaced mine took out the cabinets then put new thin wood panels up then the rv carpet. on the edge of the walls use corner molding. Is way if it ever leaks again the most you will have to do is shampoo the stain out. once that from backing of the other gets wet its don't for. and hold mildew..

RE: 30 amp to 50amp Adapter

@ frankdamp Its not about getting more power to the rv its so if your running the A/C and micro. at the same time we don't blow a backer. both only give you 120volts but the 50amp can hold the load better then the 30amp.

RE: Stuck entery Door cant get out.

Ye I did use the drivers door to get in to work on the other door. Its by far the Easiest lock to work on. we did dissemble the lock took it apart from the inside and out side. there was nothing left of it to catch the door hang. the door would open at the top and the bottom but caught in the center we had the frame out bent so we could see everything and we could see even more from the inside. but after prying for 2 hr I took the growbar to it. even then it would budge. so I sais the hack with it. its coming down and finally it popped opened. I will jusy ored a new luck door handle and replace it.

RE: Stuck entery Door cant get out.

yes Fred I removed all the door hinge and lock mechanism. But left the head bolt in so I could keep the door closed with a key from the outside or latch from the inside. So I am ok there. But that's just it we had most all that stuff out and the door still wouldn't open. At this point we could stick a screwdriver between the door mechanism and the frame. what ever it was didn't show after we got it open. thanks

Stuck entery Door cant get out.

I never thought the Entery would get stuck that it would take me and 2 other guys 2 1/2 hours to get it open. It has been working fine till today. My grandson want inside the rv then tried to come back out and the door would not open Lucky for us I have a drivers door. So we tried to back in from the out side then from the inside. After prying on the door for 2 hours and taking the door handle apart then trying to kick the door open from the inside to get nowhere! I took a crowbar from the inside and after mangling the door little we finally got it open.. yay!! But we still cant see what was keeping it from opening :h So that got me thing what if there was a fire? How much time would have went by trying to get out that door? Or if we didn't have a drivers door. And trust me we was not ez on the door at all 3 grown man and a teenager took everything we had to get it open. And still don't have a answer why it was stuck...

30 amp to 50amp Adapter

Can a camper with 30amp plug in to 50amp service with a adapter? what would happen? Its still only receiving 120volt right? or No.

RE: bleeding air breaks

Thank you RON! There is always some rude person that will say something about someone's spelling. I will be the first to admit I cant spell but do the best I can. After been kicked out of school in the 7th grade. So I find it very offensive.

RE: generators

@JimM68 It was all about the A/c. Im not real sure how long I could run on batteries otherwise. I only tried it one time I ran the refrigerator, Heater fan, And 2 TV's over night with no problem. I could have used gas for the refrig but I didn't.

David0725 03/23/15 11:31pm Class A Motorhomes

How long have you ran your generators before shutting it off? I ran mine 4days before shutting it off. It is bad to do that It is a 7.5 k Diesel Gen set. thanks

Hwh jacks wont go up.

I stored the rv with the Jacks down for the first time. My guess it didn't like that.3 of them want back up and 1 the passengers front only went half way up. I tried re-leveling 3 or 4 times I even losing the 5/8 nut's on the pump and that didn't work. now at this point I not all 4 down and none will go up..lol What next??

RE: Leveling Jacks

Filling it up may not take care of the problem. Most jacks go up by the springs If they don't retract all the was the buzzer will go off. You can clean all the springs and pistons with carb cleaner. I had to do that about 3 times now over the years. Make sure your jacks are all the way up before adding fluid.
