RE: Electrical Problem

Breaker on your inverter? Mine has two, one for some outlets each side. DW keeps using the microwave with a space heater running. (Power feeds through the inverter even when on external power)

RE: Shurflo water pump won't shut off..

Sounds like your pump needs to be primed with some water. The pump may be sucking air. If it can't pull water from the tank it will keep running and not shut off. Try taking a fitting loose to bleed the air out. Works for me. Once you get water in the pump it will work OK and build up pressure and shut off. (It sounds like it's just sitting there at an idle because it's pumping air not water)

RE: Which grease, ford chasis?

I prefer a grease containing Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2) It is an extreme pressure additive and works very well for suspension lubrication. Here are a couple of examples. Mobil XHP 222 Valvoline Moly Fortified Ford-Lincoln-Mercury grease. Charles X2

RE: Screened Canopy

Looks Good. We have two, one about the size you are looking at and one a little more than twice that size.(easy to set up?:E) The small one travels with us most of the time and works fine with two or three people. Saves us from bugs, hot sun, or light rain. The large one comes out about once a year when we need to accommodate two large tables and ten people. (I should make a youtube video of setting up the big one. It would show why we travel with the small one.) :) :) :) :W

RE: Tow protection

"Protect-a-Tow" is about the best and least expensive protection you can get. I can't see you making the same thing yourself for that cost. I have used mine ever since our trip to Alaska and have been on lots of gravel roads here in the lower 48 and Mexico...No damage to toad and a lot cleaner, for sure! Super easy to install and remove. Best of all, stores in a small lightweight, provided bag. We found other methods failed big time.

RE: 1999 Holiday Rambler Endeavor Dash A/C Blower INOP

The speeds are set by a blower resistor block. It's mounted on the HVAC plenum somewhere. It contains dropping resistors for each speed, and a thermal fuse that blows. Classic symptom is no speeds except high. Most NAPA stores should have the replacement. Dead ON........Been there done that. Easy fix.

RE: Need some guidance on fuel tanks - 85 Eldorado President

I would follow the fuel lines. You may find that there is a manual valve to change from one tank to the other. Could be the switch only changes the fuel level indication from one tank to the other.(only need one gauge that way) I had a truck (About that age) with dual tanks and the manual valve was under the seat.

RE: No water pressure

I would try bleeding the air out of the lines. AKA prime the pump. Most do not self prime too well. (The easy fix) Then start looking for broken or stuck check valves.

RE: New class A Motorhome

Tiffin wins by far. Jaycos are good for what they are, but not even in the same ball park as Tiffin. You'll see what I mean when you drive one. I don't own one but wish I did. My Winne is a DP, I love the ride and I'll never go back to a front engine. I could go on and on, but you get the idea.

RE: Chrome lug nuts

(Winnebago, Destination DP, FreightLiner.) I found that 1-9/16 fits perfectly. Bought socket at a master mechanic tool supply. Makes checking oil filled hubs a snap. Had new tires installed and the guys had to use my socket for the wheel covers...strange?? Made sure they used my breaker bar not an impact wrench.(I don't carry a lug wrench....When it comes to tire change/repair, I call Good Sam.) Just to be certain, take the Winnebago wrench with you to a tool supply.

RE: cummins/onan genset issues - FIXED

Try holding the start button down for a little longer. You may be hearing the fuel pump priming the system. When it builds up pressure the starter will kick in and it will start. (15-20 seconds) Been there, done that.

RE: When using low beam headlights all my other lights go out.

Sounds like you are in driving light mode in low beam. I would look for the relay that turns only the low beams on. Check for power from the head light(low beam) switch to the relay. May also be a bad ground. (Are you sure you should have fog lights with the high beams on...most do not) Good Luck...

RE: RV Cover

Don't bother with a cover. They are junk, hard to install and damage the finish. Most end up in the trash.... Check for past posts on covers here on the forum.

RE: Nail in Tire - Need Advice

Take it to a tire shop.....If you pull it out, you never will get it back in and stop the leak. You run the risk of doing more damage (read NEW TIRE)

RE: 2002 southwind no interior slide lights

I should have been clearer about using a volt/ohm meter. Turn the meter to DC volts (range higher than 12 volts) When looking for power. If you do this first you will be safe to start looking for a ground......When looking for a ground use the ohms setting. As Hottubkid said, If you put voltage across an ohm meter you will damage the meter. I was assuming that if you owned a volt/ohm meter you would know how to use it.

RE: 2002 southwind no interior slide lights

You need to take your volt-ohm meter and find a good ground point, not on the slide. Then run a wire from that ground to the common input of the meter. Then check the light sockets for ground or power. Ohms between the good ground and the outside of the socket and volts between the good ground and the center pin on the socket.(make sure the switch is on) This will give you a starting point. Then you know what you are looking for.(power or ground) If you don't find power or ground, I would suspect a plug has become disconnected. You may have a connector or terminal strip under/behind the couch check it out. May have been bumped. If all that checks out. Find where the power/ground wires enter the slide and check for damage or loose plug. Since you have this problem on two slides, check for a place where the wires meet.(Are both slides on the same side?) The power/ground may feed through one slide to the other. OR there may be another fuse block or inline fuse. But I'm guessing from here on. Please get back with what you find. Good Luck!!

RE: Genny Overheats and Shuts Down, How To Fix

I vote for the mouse nest.....Get down and look at the screen where the cooling air exits. You may find sticks, leaves and maybe dry mouse parts. Not easy to clear out. Been there, done that. Good Luck.

RE: Sink Leak Fix

Good fix! Better than new. RV builders cut corners on installs that take labor or skill. No plumber would think of not using plumbers putty on a sink strainer / drain. Thanks for the Post.

RE: Dash monitor only shows left turn camera '06 Allergo Bus

I had that same problem and more. It would switch cameras at will. Voyager brand monitor. That happen two years ago. After running the heat pump I got the humidity down to under 60% and was surprised when the monitor started working as it should. I now have a dehumidifier set at 60-65% in the MH. That keeps everything in good shape. The rest of the story.....On the final leg of last summer’s three month tour our Voyager monitor died. (Found that is very common for this model. Tube type monitor.) That model is no longer made. Well, I just finished installing a new Voyager LED replacement. Works just fine. I was lucky to find an adapter kit so I did not have to change cable plugs or cameras. Just plug and play.
