RE: One oil change in 11000 miles?

Thank you for all of the responses. I have decided to keep looking. I want to get something a little larger than our 36' diesel Journey, and after having owned 6 other motorhomes I prefer the simplicity of a gas unit over the diesel. I didn't realize until this morning that the passenger seat in this Adventurer floor plan has no space to recline, and that is a feature that we require. Anyway I'll just keep looking for now. Perhaps I'll just get another diesel. Thanks again for all the help.

RE: One oil change in 11000 miles?

My Honda CRV came with "break in" oil and instructions not to do an oil change before 6000 miles. My Dodge Ram with Cummins diesel specifies a 7000 mile change. I follow that guideline. In the past engines had poor tolerances and oils were not very good. Change intervals were about 3000 miles. There has not been any reason for doing that with an engine built in the last 30 years or so. Because this is a 2007 model I would have like to see another change or two, but there are other issues that are probably more important. I am sure the tires need to be replaced, maybe hoses and belts, all the fluids including brake fluid. I would also be concerned about stale fuel and plugged injectors. Engine oil and engine wear are way down on the list of concerns. Good point about the tires. A new set of tires is the first thing I would buy. Hoses and belts would also be high on my list. Thanks

RE: One oil change in 11000 miles?

6000 miles is not that bad , your heading says 11000, that is 2 many I'll change my wording to make it more clear. Thanks. :-)

One oil change in 11000 miles?

I'm considering a beautiful, garage kept 2007 Winnie Adventurer with the W24 Workhorse chassis. Unfortunately, it has only had one oil change, and that was at 6000 miles. I also wonder about the engine coolant and the potential for corrosion. Should I pass?

RE: sewer smell in rv

Our former Newmar motor home had a felt like material on the floor of the fresh water tank bay. Water would condense on the outside of the tank and wet the felt material causing mildew odor.

RE: No AC power when connected to shore power.

Thanks for the continued comments. I checked the GFIs and converter breakerfirst. Where is the throwover relay?

RE: No AC power when connected to shore power.

UPDATE I had some time to do some more checking today. As I mentioned earlier, the problem is definitely in the motorhome and not the source from shore power. I traced power through the transfer switch and to all the circuit breakers. All the breakers read 115 volts both to neutral and to ground. I was able to locate the Winnebago wiring diagrams on line. According to the diagram, there is one outlet that is not affected by the load shedder and/or the inverter circuitry. When I checked it with my meter it had power. All the rest of the outlets are dead, but A/C works. So I have so far isolated it to the circuitry associated with either the inverter/charger or the load shedder. Right now I'm leaning toward a bad relay in the load shedder, but I'm getting ready to eat dinner, so I'll have to get back to it later.

RE: No AC power when connected to shore power.

It is an Airpax Dimensions 2000 watt inverter. From what I have been able to ascertain, I'm pretty sure the problem is in the transfer switch. Thanks

RE: No AC power when connected to shore power.

I think it must be something with the transfer switch. Easter visitors arriving now so I'll have to wait until tomorrow. Thanks for the help.

No AC power when connected to shore power.

I didn't realize that I originally had this posted in the wrong forum and the topic was closed. Sorry. I have had our motorhome plugged into shore power in my driveway, as always, but this morning I went out there and my house batteries were dead and there is no 110 volt power to any of the outlets. I started the generator, and the batteries are charging and all the 12 volt times are working, as well as the 110 volt heat pump, but there is no power to any of the 110 volt outlets. I have it plugged into a standard 220 volt 50 amp, grounded outlet, and I have confirmed that I have power going into the shore power cord. Any thoughts as what I should check next? Thanks Thanks for the input that I did receive. So far I have already checked all the connections in my house and the outlet to the shore power connection. The problem definitely is in the motorhome. I have checked the reset on the converter/inverter, and all the breakers. I suspect that the converter has gone bad.

RE: No AC power from shore cord

Transfer switch.....shore side If that were the problem wouldn't I have power the the 110 volt outlets with the generator running? When running the genny, all the 12 volt systems and the AC/heatpump work, but no power to any of the 110 volt outlets.

RE: No AC power from shore cord

I checked all the power source connections from my house before I checked anything else. The problem definitely lies in the motorhome.

RE: No AC power from shore cord

I guess I wasn't clear. I have it plugged into a standard, grounded 4 wire receptacle with a neutral that I have been using for years. I have already checked all of the breakers.

RE: Alternator replacement on Cat C7, Freightliner XC chassis

Bill, Thank you for the quick response, but the only access to my engine is under the bed. My closet is in the slide in the driver side of the coach. Engine access is REALLY bad.

Alternator replacement on Cat C7, Freightliner XC chassis

I have a Winnebago Journey on a Freightliner XC chassis and Cat C7 with a rear radiator. The engine access is only possible from under the bed, and the the access is VERY restricted. My alternator has not caused any problems in the 6000 miles I have owned and driven it, but it constantly overcharges. After startup, the voltage is typically 15.3 volts. On the road the voltage fluctuates between 14.6 and 15.1 volts. I'm thinking I should replace the alternator before I have a breakdown. Can anyone offer any insight as to how difficult this job is going to be?

RE: Symptoms of HEUI pump failure?

Thanks for the replys. My mind is at ease now. Best regards

Symptoms of HEUI pump failure?

Today while climbing a long grade Eastbound on I26 about 36 miles before Asheville, NC I was at about 2300 RPM IN 2nd gear topped out at 32 mph. Before and after that I was climbing grades at as high as 65 mph, no problem. I have a 350 hp Cat C7 in a 36' Wiinnebago Journey,  flat towing a 4000 Jeep. I'm not familiar with the roads here. Is this normal for this road in this type rig? Thanks
