RE: Changing transmission fluid

I had mine changed and they put in dex 6 fluid and Allison says it will cause seal and rings to go bad. Cost $500 and now I'm going to someone else to do it right.

RE: Diesel Pusher Blues

Our DP exhaust muffler started leaking @ about 85K mi and Rocky Mountain cummins in Denver started to fix it and the following took place: Had to replace the engine head because couldn't get the bolt out and it did not pressure test to specs, replaced high pressure fuel pump and all fuel lines, replaced turbo charger, replaced exhaust muffler, cost 12,700 when all said and done. The other major repairs over the years were replaced radiator. hydraulic motor and fan, repaired radiator after rock put a hole in it, replaced all heater hoses including front to back, replaced A/C compressor, dryer, replaced front elect. distribution panel board. I can't tell you all the $$$$$ spent to keep this thing running. We now have 105K mi and hope it keeps running for our summer trips this year. We still love the Dutch Star & Can't bring ourselves to selling it because we love RVing vs Moteling.

RE: ac replacement

We had to replace two roof top A/C's damaged from a hail storm. We upgraded to 15000 btu's and they didn't have to change anything. They perform far better in hot weather than the original 13500's. wish we had done it sooner.

RE: what weight gear oil for "wet" front hubs?

I use 80-90 oil after checking w/ Spartan. I use a turkey baster to pull out old oil and then add new. I top off when necessary. I've got 105K mi now and bearing seem OK.

RE: How long to leak down your air system?

Mine was going down over night for years and I finally had it checked and they put in a new air leveling valve and now it can go weeks before going down.

Back up camera not working

My back up camera is not working. Seams that the tv screen only shows a faint picture after about 20 minutes of being turned on. Has anyone had this problem. How do I test to determine if it is the screen or the camera.

RE: Tire Presure

I'm on my 3rd set of Michelins and ready for a 4th. I've never weighed the coach and use 105psi on front tires and 100-105 on rear dullies. Never had any tire issues on the road.The only tire pressure issues I've had are w/ extenders and TPMS systems causing leaks.

RE: 80mph gusts wind ..ripped off half roof

We got hit by high winds and hail several years ago in Colorado. The insurance co. had to replace my roof, both a/c's and repaint 2 sides of the MH. My body shop owner contacted our agent and went to bat for us. It cost 28K for all the work and they paid w/out questions. Of course the MH had a value of more than that so they had to repair it. Good luck w/ your problem.

RE: TPMS - Flow Thru or Non Flow Thru Sensors

I have a TST system. I had a problem w/ one tire going down w/ a sensor connection to my rear tires. I lost air until I could get it installed properly so it wouldn't leak. TST gave me excellent customer service and help even after 10 months from purchase. I can ocassionaly lose reading on one of my MH tires and one of my Toad tires. They say I need a signal booster installed in the back of the MH. They do give me peace of mind and I have been using them for about 2 years. I only had to add air after 1 year of installation to the tires so I don't see any reason to have the flow thru sensors.

RE: Generator hours

I've got 1700 on my Onan 7500. Never had the valves adjusted. It shut down once on a 3 day 24 hr continuous run time. I changed the fuel filter and it hasn't had a problem since. Regular maintenance is a must.

RE: Direct TV - extra bedroom receiver in motorhome

I've been using Direct since 2000 and now have a traveler DTV dish wired to the front tv only for HDTV and take the DVR from the house to the RV. I didn't run a wire from the splitter to the bedroom so no DTV there. I use only the antennae or campground cable in the bedroom. Most campground cable is Standard definition. That seems to be adequate since we only sleep there most of the time and watch our front TV the majority of the time. I converted both analog TV's to Vizio 32 " flat screen smart TV's.

RE: How old is too old?

My 2002 MH in last 3 yrs has had the following replaced: all heater hoses including front to back, radiator hoses, a/c compressor, high pressure fuel pump, lift pump, fuel lines, exhaust manifold & head, turbo charger, hydraulic pump, new roof w/ upgraded new 15500 a/c's, shocks, muffler, 2 flat screen TV's. It has 105K miles on it and you can see that a used MH can be very costly to bring up to date if it has not been maintained well. I have owned this MH since 2004 and I have kept it well maintained. Most of this work was done @85K miles. I hope it runs another 85K mi but I will not be driving it by then. Good luck in your search.
