RE: On the road generator problem. Help?

Could be weak breakers on the generator or weak coils holding the contacts in the transfer switch. You imply generator runs and provides good power when parked!

RE: Outlook problems again?

I suggest you got direct to Malwarebytes if you want to download. CNET is bad to put PUPS on your computer. On the other hand Malwarebytes is one of the few malware programs that removes PUPS.

RE: Blown Engine, 8.1l

Oh man I feel for you. To buy used from a junk yard you have to take their word for what vehicle and year the motor is from some have good records and are honest while others are not quite so honest. Best of luck in the repair and getting back on the road.

RE: Brunswick, Maine to Intercourse, PA.

No doubt you will have to pay a toll but to stay away from the large areas do not go in the back way.

RE: info Chevy P30 hydro boost brake/power sterring bleeding

Turning the steering wheel is to bleed the power steering system. The P-30 manual says to use a vacuum bleeder to bleed the brakes. After replacing my brake hose I used the pump the pedal method and that worked OK.

RE: Mysterious Electrical Issue

A guess here but take a look at the fan switch and see if you have 2 wires connected to the "motor side" of the switch or an extra wire at the motor. What I'm thinking is the problem light is getting it's ground through the fan motor. That could explain the motor running at random as it is also getting 6V through the problem light when that switch is "on" A test would be to turn on the problem light and check the fan to see if it running at half speed or even slower. The logical explanation is the bulb is getting it's ground from an unknown source. Having said that many times electrical circuits do not behave in a logical manner. Whatever the problem let us know when you get it worked out. Not sure if you saw this but you might want to check for the above.

RE: Kitchen Faucet

I also replaced both of mine and the bathroom sink but it took me more than 20 minutes. CW is like any other business, depends on the local manager. Even when things go wrong a good manager steps up to the plate and makes things right. But then again a good manager is more likely to have good employes and less things go wrong.

RE: Furnace fan cycles after turning A/C off

I suspect you have a bad thermostat. Not sure about your thermostat but "normally" the G terminal is for the fan. You could disconnect the G wire and see if that keeps the fan from running when you turn the AC off. Disclaimer I am not a HVAC tech.

RE: flying J

I also use to stop at FJ but the RV lane was always occupied and many times the RVer's would be inside for a long time or waiting for propane and then using the dump station. I just don't have the patience to wait 30/40 minuets for my turn, I just want to gas up and go.

RE: Alternator Quit ( I think)

The connections "at" the battery is the main area for a dirty, corroded or loose connection and they will cause poor charging and eventually a dead battery. The only sure way is remove the battery cable at the battery clean the terminal post and inside the cable connector with a special brush you can buy at any auto parts store. Cost less than $10. Sounds like a bad alternator not sure if they can check it on the RV like they do on autos just depends on how hard it is to get to but they do check them for free.

RE: loss of power "check engine light on

In the old days to much power going up a hill (floor board and don't let up) you could "float the valves" causing a sudden loss of power from over revving the engine hopefully without doing major damage. In today's engines with all the computer controls I doubt you could over rev an engine but what code would show up would be dependent on what shut the engine down if any code. In the future you might try backing off slightly on the throttle before over revving if that's what happened.

RE: SIMPLE fix just became COMPLICATED...

The reason everyone says to check battery voltage is low voltage causes an increase in current through the motor and that is what burns up the motor. You may have a bad connection somewhere between the battery, solenoid and motor allowing a voltage drop "at" the motor. If there is a way to check the voltage drop at the motor that could tell you something. Just a wild guess is the control board is trying to do two or more things at the same time overloading the system and the pump is bogging down making the motor work harder. On the other hand that should cause a fuse to blow!

RE: strange things happening

Can you plug in to the pedestal without the surge protector? The combined AC/Heat Pump work off electric not gas and are good to around 45 deg outside temp.

RE: 12 Volt Timer Relay

Well you certainly have more experience than I do plus I have been out of practice for the past 20 years. I have used a simple diode up to reversed zeners for snubbers or more elaborate setups for switching power supplies to eliminate RF noise I don't remember referring to the circuits we used as snubbers we just had to eliminate the arcing and RF. I am not arguing or disagreeing with you I just did not think about it in this case due to low voltage and the application.

RE: 12 Volt Timer Relay

Timers for bathroom infrared lamps are available as mechanical timers used in many hotels. Can be used with 12VDC and available from Lowe's or Home Depot.

RE: Do we need another brake system ??

I stand corrected Uhaul does rent trailers with and without surge brakes. The tow dolly I rented did have surge brakes.

RE: circuit breakers

Depending on your RV. If 30 amp with out a management system the rear AC may "only" work with the generator you may try that first.

RE: Kwikee 32 Series(Again)

This is part number I used at Auto Zone take yours in and they can match it with one of these. Dorman # 742-205 or 206

RE: Anything wrong with this??

I think he is plugged in and keeping the rig level because the frig is on. Not a big deal but as others I would have something under the front wheels for my own comfort level.
