RE: Alternator voltage on ISC engine

Charge air heater grid cycling on/off with a cold engine? THIS ^^^^^^ ISC is a Cummins Diesel Cummins uses 'grid heaters' vs 'glow plugs' Voltage WILL fluctuate from 14V to 12V when ambient air temps drop below 59*F They will continue to cycle on/off (up to 30 seconds) until intake manifold temp goes above 59*F---even with engine running Each grid heater pulls close to 95A...thats 2300W Just one of the reasons for dual batteries and high amp alternators I knew that the ISC was a Cummins Diesel, but not about the ambient temps, thank you for taking the time to post that. I have not noticed it in my Ram 2500 IL6 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel. Learn some thing new every day.

RE: Looking for a So Cal Thanksgiving uncrowned camp spot

My wife and I went to Joshua Tree National Park a couple of years ago over Thanksgiving Holiday. We spent a week there. Nice and quiet almost empty. Only it was very cold there.

RE: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee

You are very,very close on the GVW but I can tell you for sure that the TPMS on the Jeep will not work with that of the coach no matter what brand it is.. Roadmaster has some tow brackets for the Jeep that will pretty much be hidden. Blue OX probably has the same. Pick the one you get the best deal on. Both are reputable companies I have a friend that tows a Jeep Liberty with a 26Q and when he does he drains all but a gallon of gasoline out of the Jeep. We are going to be looking at a RV on the Ram 5500 Chassis. But will have to make due, with what we have right now. We have all sorts of equipment in the storage bin on the Jamboree 26Q. Thanks I will start looking. Was thinking of getting a Tow Bar and hook it to the Jamboree and tow that with my Ram 2500 CC/LB IL-6 Cummins Turbo Diesel (ha ha :h) That might be a little over kill. :S

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee

On 30 SEP 16, we bought a 2016 Grand Cherokee.Overland High Altitude, (fancy name for black badging) We were going to get a Cherokee but had problems getting into and out of it. I am very comfortable sitting in the passenger seat. We also have a TPMS in the RV. Can we get the one on the Jeep to work with the one in the RV? This jeep does have the Quadra Trac II Transfer case. And according to the Owner's Manual it's towable four down. My question is which Tow Bar assembly is the easiest to hook up and or remove, Or which one is the best pro's and con's ? We are going to use this set up on our 2005 Fleetwood Jamboree 26Q Class C. I know it's cutting it close on the GVW Thank You

RE: Generator mounting for pick up

I see nothing wrong with your welding job. I can say for sure it's a lot better than what I would do. I never learned how to weld. Good job.

RE: Goal zero yeti 150 & cpap

You need to post what model Cpap Machine you have. My machine is a Respironics M Series BiPap. It runs on 12v. I use a 12v receptical by my bed in the RV to power my machine.

RE: Synthetic oil questions

My Ram 2500 IL-6 Cummins Turbo Diesel I use Rotella T-5 15/40 Synthetic Blend. In my 2005 Fleetwood 6.8 L V-10 I use Motorcraft Synthetic Blend. In my Old 1995 7.3L "460cid" V-8 I used Motorcraft 10/30 Synthetic Blend Oil. I change the oil and filter at about 7500 miles or 6 mo. which ever comes first. My 1995 Ford had over 200K on it when I traded it in on my Ram Truck. It leaked more oil than it burned "Marked it's Territory"

RE: Cajon Pass I-15 fire closure

It's must be bad when you can see the smoke in San Diego County. The local news helicopter showed a shot of the smoke. I know they are up high, but still they were over north San Diego city when they showed it.

RE: surge protection

I haven't heard those "sad" tales here. both progressive and surge guard seem to be fine. but get a multi-function surge protector, $250 and up, not the $90 wonder. bumpy What Bumpyroad said. :B I like the Progressive Industries Surge Protectors.

RE: Generator Exaust

With the Texas heat we are using our on board generator more than I thought we would to run the a/c. The exhaust comes directly out of the back of our Lance 1181, right beside the entry door. I've already decided to install a 90* pipe and direct the exhaust out the curb side of the camper. I have been looking for an extension set up to run the exhaust up. I can fabricate a 90* and pipe to clear the roof, not sure about the brackets since i really don't want to put holes in the side of the camper. I do keep coming across this Gen-Turi system. Has anyone used this setup? If so were you or are you happy with it? Does it do what it says? I have found the Camco kit for as low as $119 but not sure it is worth it. I use that same set up on my Gen set for the exhaust I have a Class C and the exhaust is on the drives side but it seems to find it's way into the rear of theRV and set's off the carbon monoxide alarm when I do not use the Gen-turi Exhaust Pipe, unless the wind is blowing other wise I would say it was well worth what I paid for the kit in 2008. Also if you can find it for that cost buy it. I paid just under that with the shipping from CW.

RE: Another Onan Problem

I don't know if this applies or not. with the solar you have all power functions still running of inventor making you think power is restored with the sub panel breaker. with exception of AC. I'd suspect you flipped the genny breaker. go to the genny and pull the panel off there is a master breaker that probably tripped. happened to me once all was well again. Did u start the genny with the ac on? there is a high load and it makes it difficult to start could have tripped the breaker as well. No I usually let the generator run for a few minutes before I start the A/C unit. I did reset the circuit breaker on the generator. Right now I am dealing with other problems that are more important (Family health matters.) than the Generator. Thank you for the replies. I will deal with it when I have the time.

RE: Another Onan Problem

The obvious answer is: Nothing wrong with your generator; the A/C has failed or the breaker is bad. Which breaker is it that trips ? Might be interesting to see what happens on shore power. When we turn on the A/C the generator quits putting out power, but it still runs. I had this happen once before when we first got the RV. I reset the circuit breaker on the Onan Generator and no problem , but now it keeps tripping when you turn the A/C on? I need to take the RV where I can hook to shore power. (Maybe go to the Elks Lodge for the week end)

Another Onan Problem

The Onan KY microlite 4000 generator in my RV runs, we turned the A/C the other day the circuit breaker tripped, the A/C quit. any ideas. I have reset the breaker switch. This is a 2005 Jamboree 26Q. Have had several problems with the Generator, Also had it in the shop and replaced the carburetor 3 times. Also this unit has solar on it.
