RE: How many of us are there? Owners of Dodge based RV's?

We're sitting here on the beach at the State Park. Found out th park is closing for the season Sunday... last day. I guess we're here just in time. Anyway. Seemed to run pretty well on the way out. Quiet enough I hear 100 other things to make me nervous. Temperature never got much past half way on the gauge. Don't know if that is because it is 20 colder today than it was a couple weeks ago when we took it to the soccer tournament, or if fixing the exhaust so it wasn't blowing into the doghouse helped. May have to wait until next fall to make that determination. Also, the drive has felt a lot better since replacing the drag link several weeks ago. I think the cold idol is a little high, may tweak that a bit yet... currently... I have a little faith in the old beast again. Yea! Too bad the tires are 10 years old... gotta save up for a new set before planning anything big. May try and get to Disney next summer. I think the next thing, is to get the Genset fixed and tuned up. currently leaking oil when running. :(.

RE: How many of us are there? Owners of Dodge based RV's?

The RV is a roller coaster. Yep... it's great when you feel you have stuff worked out. And then I can be ready to just leave it in a field when something else goes wrong. lol. We'll see how the temp thing goes now that the exhaust manifold isn't leaking into the doghouse.

RE: SHOULD THE TOP OF MY CONVERTER BOX GET TO HOT TO TOUCH?

That happened to me 2 or 3 times. Probably lucky it didn't burn the rv up. Took a couple hours and as I mentioned... much better now. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/vxJj0DdruifGimup5MCqBA4wroDwPDuwgFiSQ_65-sA7yect8vONWDmhqNXVeasu_uMAde0ND-ncIftDKefc9d61JGH5OeNE8zlruKbwMr2GNhik0YOXHejGKsPoClwi7xcQrRoQclxhdrS_dinHccykAgcrM52aI5yjghFnzhz1uponhMaRyvxk0UvIowjiPH-Sgg_PHvoJDXTwHnysz5z4jdnfZmy0NfcrX4coKURQX_9P1rsVP9gfMnzvybcH2EmpTE84e_N9iDMOJeejjI9LRal1V2UQWBPOKriFcrpYzExyk9Iv7Q3aHX4gD0q9nOrWBIZrE4FkiRxRncwYzuOWkOdlcQLOvfZYuPEgyHvxx6um5etm5cEHrKKSlpLX_1dn_Q0dIpt5nSlB_L41pU5msmIy2Ubr4Tahyz2A4Q4qjGZmSPNqLpcWTEbA_1pfhtHkxDVt10XKYURE72gAwP3bFBl3MEDvycUVJvY5UrHzr7dBcIhsBVlzsMvXA9xhU5Gw6qLWSXOY6viZ4Ok9dpjoxJU1BkMArgwLx9AfWY1iH8173IBe87CpVlnd_pjNySujigniLMPviiIQLdAlVJBIVVKbslK2RDohH9rEzsnFu2Z8iiJGP7fVmCRLA7pFsm35SxTZPeYFyPfaMeWjW2dS1HA0SxxmVAU=w2406-h1804-no height=480 width=640https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/wUNBXGRomCd_4paUrgXmYIQMgRiJzAnV_m68dcGydKrivEl90bVX6SQl-y9C6TPIchxs8C0BjwA9PWdCj41386eF7__67ul_bJoVrH_ebMbWEtHNunLryCUD9_EJw57ZdyWzipyet-SoxkTy9DZzyhWCUP--8P36MRhhQcPyp-jtr1omOuay49MSmuwnSYBebejPezjPD1ohrnvrv2q-ng92HX_1K2uehSlz5KPiIwi6C8mlJdg4QaCUu7XiTwp9RYNZg7Q4VQH5Cn7rkOLu-gxqgy9e1F4_hlJNeZ4jTsU8CDpXUzFVzDC9T3vN6p7gdFF4Mdp63KSTJAnkHMSykjV8wIEE7zD1qitW8e_6wLowBO3t4Ij-YOFPqj-Df-aeq6DYxKq2bIS4WgMbgDQqg1XT_LMdML4EFnZyn7DnQr0UjHg5d81Eh6kgweNvMZ1DZhJE8nZo1sZq616PDTt1_hEkcaIlanYyyvePAguqUR7dAmAy1YfEOo_bv-a5sblaHzZkBl_SpV69I8ZBjy0PeScRPvZatyL5zeY915PYHZdCWcD8Zrxshbts1Whn5Ki4VRNhOfVQQXk7nfM5LPY2LjfoG9aOwCuGlA3IR6Ow53MuFDPu0OWxzPHpmOIcJJIe56befIIz3kQiS-M8ug0jtn-d5-yz6JqZXqI=w2406-h1804-no height=480 width=640

RE: SHOULD THE TOP OF MY CONVERTER BOX GET TO HOT TO TOUCH?

I had to rewire/fix mine several times before I finally just replaced the whole thing. It was far easier to replace than I thought it was going to be, and it is so much more efficient. I recommend it. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/86PqGvxX6FlOZN6KZ5PEbDMxgYXP2ujj56VV4DBua93URBzQwRPKz06OjvdhGm6ALDjZCOB-Tc4ljmzlk9LLw-Dbkhi4yZczi98hnd7a7X_OHdPupfuDaoDKiv-mnR13aS178M2JGoxEOrwQfaM5mG_7YcWwkzyOBHxlYNm9ricBAtpFaelE8TGKMfqGPVCdM-gsWUonNy97m89CB3raJn1IvxSyu6_0UUvuzsEGlhkeU3G2Z6Y4e-RoFffth5zCrWdKNzfylhSt1B2nqC_1mnDEIv17rFP-iHwKCqSQfQSx_2rmqD7ZFvYXI7qqFQZwNqtDzBTBhvzojzr4oCW4QtMSKmyhGFzuPEfMJ8ZgDwgyDp9ADhzX4pQKig5TGOFk4o7OEoyEyc0MIdUVDfQGE1xXer-i1rHsPAX5dbBHGCNzDgce29ssxCZ3dqSxNwx5iCBOI8c7ij0BUl4v9s99CscCkylaOqfULnbQGW92lBUmcJ0Xzo9TaIMdHGNcEk-PPJGLVFmT7I9GnEattoxzeVOiVU8gYR7KKwP7GXHHL2sDuTw-GqT8bsLCrhuJSAcb9IaX0qb2OQoCKxDWbdTXV8fvfd8R_erCzdjkv7yAM0Rzg_5RHgdNunsMDQshfNq8RfiZksyc6Ur3600rgyC2wN5a7Q3UNagwoqc=w1354-h1804-no height=640 width=480

RE: How many of us are there? Owners of Dodge based RV's?

So, time has gone by, still starting right up with a pump of the pedal. Awesome. Ignition module to the rescue. Bit of other news... for the first time since I've owned it... I think the exhaust is finally fixed and without issue. Put a new muffler and tailpipe on last fall, found a crack and a leak up by the manifold and got that and the header gasket fixed. just kinda purrs now. My oldest said it doesn't sound as powerful now. lol. Should be a nice trip this weekend.

RE: How many of us are there? Owners of Dodge based RV's?

Eric, Should be the same rebuild kit I just purchased. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/smp-1423/applications I will see if I can find the tuning guide again. Note... it is more bending metal rods than anything else.

RE: How many of us are there? Owners of Dodge based RV's?

Eric, you have a Carter Thermoquad 9207s. TreeSeeker... I thought I just copy and pasted a link to the Summit Racing Part?

RE: How many of us are there? Owners of Dodge based RV's?

There ya go Chris... you have Griff's blessing on the Doorman's. BTW... I don't change them all the time. I had one break back when I first bought the RV, replaced them all. Had one of those break on our way home from Florida this past Christmas. Fortunately we had just pulled into a rest stop for the night and were looking for a level spot for the night. When I replaced them... I figured THERE is a part I should carry spares for... so... we were covered.

RE: How many of us are there? Owners of Dodge based RV's?

I wish I could go out and look at mine as I'm pretty certain they are the same. You probably want the Doorman part I linked to at Summit Racing. Not sure if the is an OEM available, but I have used the Doorman part in the past. The part that sucks is they don't break if you're not using them... and when you ARE using them... its because you need them... so you are pretty much guaranteed to be standing in the rain when you have to replace them.

RE: How many of us are there? Owners of Dodge based RV's?

Well, your red circle is throwing me off. That looks square, and NOT like the bushings I'm used to replacing. Which are the white ones on the ends of the long rod. Those I know all about. Easy to find, and cheap. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/rnb-49440 What you have circled I am unsure about. It appears to need something different, are you sure that is not intended for a stud/bolt/shaft to connect to the wiper motor?

RE: How many of us are there? Owners of Dodge based RV's?

Well then... mine would be the third. Mine is in better condition than TreeSeekers, components are still covered. But it still melted out.

New ignition module.

RE: How many of us are there? Owners of Dodge based RV's?

I a man posting this again this morning because I still can't believe it. But testing the ignition module swap again this morning, she fired right up. Better than I can remember in a long while. Feeling pretty good about it. Need to track down an OEM module somehow I guess.

RE: How many of us are there? Owners of Dodge based RV's?

TreeSeeker... in the past, the ignition module either worked or it didn't. THIS TIME, it slowly got harder and harder to start. I NEVER thought it was the ignition module until I changed it on a whim and the problem went away. In the past, it seemed like every spring I was replacing the module as it wouldn't start. Not sure if that clears anything up or not.

RE: How many of us are there? Owners of Dodge based RV's?

Yes, that is he ignition module. Typically, I would say no. It either works or it doesn't. Difference between the Ignition Module and the Ballast resistor failing, is if the Ballast resistor fails, the engine will start, but quits as soon as the key moves to the run position. If the ignition module fails, it just cranks away forever and never starts. Until I experienced difficulties starting, then most recently 'intermittent' failure, I would have never thought it was the ignition module. But, after replacing mine last night, the engine has fired right up overtime since. Like first revolution... hasn't done that for a loooong time.

RE: How many of us are there? Owners of Dodge based RV's?

Mounted to firewall, slightly behind the brake stuff. 5 pin ignition module, 4 pin ballast resistor. Lets see... disconnect wires, unscrew from firewall, screw in new module... hunt for the ^%$#^$ screw I drop 3-4 times trying to line it up behind the brake stuff, reconnect the wires. Drive off...

RE: How many of us are there? Owners of Dodge based RV's?

I am going to stick with my starting problem having been the ignition module. After sitting all night, got up this morning, pumped the gas once, and she fired up faster than I can remember. Can't figure out why this old beast eats ignition modules... but... I buy them with extended warranty... so I just keep swapping them out.

RE: How many of us are there? Owners of Dodge based RV's?

What timing TreeSeeker... I have been troubleshooting a similar issue. Got worse and worse to were it could sit for a couple hours and be difficult to start. Recently rebuilt the carb trying to troubleshoot. (It needed it... the bowl was warped and leaking.. the glue on the wells was failing and leaking fuel... But. Rebuilding the carb didn't help. We took it for a trip this weekend, seemed to start Ok. Didn't have the big problems I had been having. Thought we had made headway. Over the weekend, the speedo stopped working again. So, yesterday, I wanted to back it up a little, so I could get under it, and fix the cable... transmission gear to be specific. Anyway. Wouldn't start... at all... I had even been keeping a can of starter fluid handy. Didn't help and ran out of light anyway. So... I figure today I'll change the ignition module. I seem to go through them about one a year. I think this one has lasted a little longer. But, before I do, thought I'd give it one more try. **** things started right up. Like... right away. So, I backed it up, fixed (I think) the speedo stuff, and went to put it back in its regular spot. Won't start again. Crank, crank, crank... I decide to let it sit a little. Worked yesterday right? come back an hour later, still no go. So, I go ahead with my plan and grab the other ignition module. **** it it didn't fire right up. shut it off... started right up again... shut it off... and fired right back up. So... try and new ignition module. Wait... before you do. GRIFF!!!! What is a good ignition module? The original one looks nasty. It's rusted, the protectant on the back has leaked out everywhere. But its never failed. I assume its going to however, so I keep buying new units. The new units eventually fail... and I revert to the original. Maybe I should just stick with the original... but I can't bring myself to do it yet. So... What SHOULD I replace it with? I started with the $35 dollar units... and have gone up to the NAPA branded higher $$$ units without a realistic change except that the higher $$$ version does't fail outright. Only made troubleshooting it harder.
