RE: Dutherm AC issue

If you have a way to test (or substitute) the FAN RUN capacitor please do. My guess is that it's passably OK since the fan starts, but I do know that if it's of the wrong MFD, uF, MicroFarad capacity, one outcome can be an overheating motor. Chances are, motor shot. Some replacements come with a new capacitor, others don't. With your motor's history, I'd suggest a new capacitor even if you need to buy it separately.

RE: General information of replacing Kwikee step motors

I just spoke with a man who replaced a Kwikee motor with a Ford power window motor. Late 1990's Taurus left front if I remember. The window regulators in cars are mirror images of each other, left to right, so there are left and right motors. For awhile, Ford had a slip clutch arrangement in the motor gearbox. It'd fail and motor'd run but gears not move. The Dorman "HELP" line (at many auto supply stores) offers a kit to restore the clutch area and get it working again. So sometimes it doesn't even call for a full motor, just the kit. Take one apart and you'll see that hex nuts, bearing balls, pieces of rod, lots of things will work. Kit's just easier. And true, it's not a slip clutch after that.

RE: Fan-tastic Fan vent cover

Good Deal! Just be sure you seal it back up well. And use DICOR. Friends Don't Let Friends Use Silicone!

RE: Which one to choose?!

Personally, I, like Tom, think the 28A is a decent entry level coach. I particularly like the interior floor plan and the outside storage. The ones I've looked at happened to be on Chevy chassis.

RE: Fan-tastic Fan vent cover

I want them if Linda doesn't. The issue using MaXXair brackets on a non-MaXX installation is that the attaching points of the MaXX brackets needs to match the spacing of the mounting slots on the Ultra Breeze. Oh, WAIT! It's coming back to me. MaXXair II does not use mounting slots. Part of the mounting is formed into the plastic cover and the rest is formed into the aluminum bracket. That swap won't work, not without a lot of adaptation.

RE: Fan-tastic Fan vent cover

I hear you, Bumpy! Very surprised FF did that. MaXXair uses the angle brackets to keep the possible leaks out of the wet area. The FF install probably results in a tighter fit. I've had the Maxx covers work loose. Maybe FF just wants us to invade our part and not theirs. If we were closer I could make or find Linda some angle brackets. Still, FF's plan will certainly work. It's not like we never have to work on the roof and apply sealant.

RE: Fan-tastic Fan vent cover

OK, found some info. In this YouTube video from Fantastic, they want you to remove two screws from each side of where the flange mounts to the roof of your coach. Then you reinstall those four screws with the Ultra Breeze mounting plates under them. After that, the vent cover's slotted holes fit over the pins in the four mounting plates. You drop a washer over the pins once through the slots in the vent cover and then push a clevis pin into the crosswise hole in each of the pins. You do NOT dismantle the Fan or its lid in any way. If you gOOgle "ultra breeze vent cover installation" you'll see a couple videos and a few pictures. You'll find your fan mounting flanges are covered in sealant, hiding the screws. That sealant has to be cut/dug/s****ed to give you the four flat spots to mount the plates for the cover. The are MUST be kept WATERPROOF. You need a tube of Dicor Non Leveling Lap Sealant http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/21cwXjXyacL.jpg width=200 Dicor Non Leveling Non Sag Lap Sealant White 551LSW - Amazon. That's a caulking tube, so you need a caulking gun/frame to apply it with. In the Holes, Around the Edge of the Flange, On the Flange where the mountings will go, On and Around the mountings at the flange. This is not rocket science. Just be sure you don't slip and fall on the roof, don't slip and cut the thin membrane that's the roof, or... Linda...

RE: Fan-tastic Fan vent cover

I found where Ultra Breeze is a Fantastic Fan product. And was disappointed they don't appear to post User Guide, Install Instructions, Parts List, or the like. If you want to email me a scan of any instructions they provided with your cover, and a photo of the area you're talking about with "brads" send me a Private Message. I'll reply with my email ID and you can send what you can gather. You can call Fantastic and I'm sure they'll be glad to help, but probably not till Monday.

RE: Fan-tastic Fan vent cover

Linda, is the "frame" (by that I mean the vertical edge that the FF's lid seals down against) made of metal or plastic? I didn't use your brand of cover, but used MaXXair. For that cover, there were angled aluminum brackets. Short edge screwed to the vertical edge leaving the long edge right down against the roof. Cover attached there. Our "frames" on the two FF's are plastic. I went to the trouble of dismantling the fans to get the stainless nuts and washers they furnished for stainless mounting machine screws into place. I would never do that again. For the bathroom vent where the frame was thin sheet metal, yes. For FF's, no. I'd use Sheet Metal screws. Let me try to find the instructions for your covers. Or if you can, post a link. I'll be away for a couple hours...

width=300 Above the word "Plus" in the photo is one of its TWO spark plugs. Motor part is twin-cylinder-opposed (a "boxer" engine) and the generator part is wound to do 120VAC at 60hZ at 1800RPM. It may not be quieter in a formal dbA test, but the tone of the lower RPM is less obnoxious than a newer 3600RPM genset. Notice the oil filter under "Em" that goes along with a real pressurized lubrication system. Those MicroQuiet footlockers most of us have are splash lubed like a B&S mower engine. Performs the same function as the MicroQuiet 4KY most of the C's have, but it's an entirely different animal. It looks like a BFA we had, but BGE seems to have a replaceable starter motor http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/61ijpckKtzL._SL1000_.jpg width=200 and that's a very good thing. In BFA, the generator armature included a starter winding. If that part went out, no way to start an otherwise good generator.

RE: Lubricating Front Jacks -

A Fifth Wheel with power landing gear? I tried looking that model up to verify it was a fiver and I probably couldn't help you. I started out thinking it was a hydraulic jack on a motor home. Then maybe a scissor on a travel trailer... If nobody else comes along with something specific, then I'd say try to figure out who actually provided your landing gear and go after an owner manual, perhaps even by model number of the gear.

RE: Feeling ripped off on the cost of a front break job ?

$600? Not bad at all for Fronts. Simply Amazingly Stunning if "all" and "the rotors" means Front and Rear! Seems they treated you like other customers, farmers, contractors, deliveries etc. that run Ford Trucks, not a cash cow in an RV.

RE: Feeling ripped off on the cost of a front break job ?

The job is done now, and billing/warranty will work out however it works out. But I'd like to offer: 1. A job like this should include BOTH calipers and the hoses. 2. If there's any planning time/down time, a whole replacement front axle setup, with complete brakes, new bearings, new axles (including ball joints and bushings) and new radius arms is available from firms that make Ford E-Series chassis into 4x4. Replacing these components on 2007 or earlier chassis upgrades brakes to the latest 2008+ design which is a much larger, much better, brake. 3. Item 2. above is really good if the chassis has enough miles on it that ball joint wear has become an issue. Several of us on this forum have made this swap or had it done at a shop and we're pleased.

RE: 3500/4000 Generator an AC

What kind of Generator? I ask because "jobsite gennys" are often rated at 240-VAC. That's two 120-VAC legs at half the rated wattage. So a 3500-watt jobsite genny provides two 1750-watt circuits. A campsite genny, say 3000-watt Honda, lets you draw all 3000 from one circuit. So find out how the generator is set up. Harbor Fright, who I don't necessarily recommend for generators, only as an example, had two jobsite type gennys. One of them featured a 30A outlet. That setup would start and run a rooftop A/C. Most jobsite-style gennys are noisy.

RE: E350 MH with potential Ford C-Max Energi Toad

I'd see if I could build my towing plan around Ready Brute Elite which has an integrated braking system. Then find a baseplate that offers quick disconnect WITHOUT the Cross Bar that's typical in most Roadmaster applications. Popular baseplates are Blue Ox, Roadmaster and DEMCO. Ready Brute can connect to any of them. Pick the most convenient. Roadmaster is very rugged stuff but heavy and time consuming to totally remove from the toad. That's why so many toads run around looking like they have a snow plow frame on them.

RE: onan generator

BGE is a pretty old unit. In most ways, that's good. Big, heavy, runs for about 50 years. Remember, though, it's an 1800-RPM unit. It has a mechanical governor that strives to maintain at or near 1800. When the generator sees a load, the governor opens the throttle but does not increase RPM. So, don't "rev" it. Goose it up and it'll put out 160-volts or so at that higher RPM.

RE: E450 ball joints during alignment

b9r, what year is your E350? Would also know RV length, wheelbase. Also, can you go weigh this coach? Corner weights are best, but axle weights Front and Rear (truck scale will call them Steer and Drive) will work for tire pressure planning. You don't need to add pressure just because you went from D to E. 65 Front is for max axle load on a C with 4600-lb front axle. What's the tire size?

RE: onan generator

Please post the Make/Model and Model Number. Probably an ONAN 4KY, that's the most popular, but we still need to know. The last character of the Model Number is the Spec Code and that's very important in working on ONAN. So "4KY-blah-blah-J" would be a 4KY Spec K. Let us know. Meanwhile, is the voltage you reported with a load or running unloaded?

RE: ENGINE A/C PROBLEM, NOT ALWAYS COOLING

To Doug's point about MAX A/C... Friends have an older, smaller, Class A. The refrigerant charge was low and we corrected that. They were still uncomfortable in the thing and I found that "normal A/C" allowed simply huge amounts of outside air into the coach. Not sure if it was design, install, or component failure but it was like trying to A/C with a window open. They now use the A/C on MAX. There are plenty of other ways to get some outside air into an RV.
