RE: Help needed 2015 Forester 3171 dead (anti theft activated)

It was only a few miles from the soccer field to the Ford dealership. Too many bad things going on.

RE: PLEASE, PLEASE help- 1983 E350 Ford 460 RV

Sounds like you should have a mechanic try to fix the cruise control and horn. If you are not careful, you might make it worse than it is. In the long run, you would be ahead to have a mechanic fix it. I don't mean an RV guy, an automobile or truck mechanic.

RE: Onan propane generator not starting

I think I will take it to the Cummins/Onan shop and have the propane system checked. The propane system is not what I want to mess with!

RE: Entertainment system.2009 Itasca

Connect the red and white audio out from the sat receiver to the audio in on surround sound. Should work!

RE: TV Cable Wrench/Tool

If you ever watch the cable repair tech they have a wrench that looks like a box end wrench with a slot cut into it to slide over the cable to get to the connector..... That is a wrench made for brass compression fittings so that you don.t round off the brass fittings with an open end wrench.

RE: TV Cable Wrench/Tool

Never seen that type of connector. Give more info about your connector. What is it for?

RE: 10 days VS 12 minutes

Last thing I learned on Face Book is how fouled mouthed my 30 grand daughter and 10 year old grandson are. That's the problem with Facebook that people don't know about. Anybody can and does read your private messages, no privacy. Even the police read it because stupid crooks like to brag about what they did our whom they shot and get caught!

RE: 10 days VS 12 minutes

Companies that post public email addresses often don't reply. When an email address is made public it's instantly spammed with 1000's of junk emails a day. Your email gets lost in all of it. For this reason Facebook may reach someone easier than an email. It is best to just call them. Facebook is a joke, there is NO privacy or security there. Everyone in the world knows everything you put there.

RE: Onan propane generator not starting

Thanks, I will check the mixer gasket to the head for leaks and then report back. I don't think there is a fuel to air adjustment on propane generators.

Onan propane generator not starting

Onan model # 3.6KYFA2612OL propane generator will not start. Has new spark plug and air filter. Does not seem to have oil pressure sensor. Propane tank is a little under 1/2. Vent. tube is not plugged. I did get it to start by spraying carb cleaner in the air intake with the air filter off. It ran as it should. Kept running until I shut it off. Would not restart without cleaner. What would this indicate? Any help will apprecieated. It is in a 2007 Gulfstream Class C motorhome.

RE: what battery is used for starting a generator in a class C

My 2007 Four Winds generator starts from the house batteries. If it's low, you can use the emergency switch below the steering wheel to join the house and chassis battery for more juice. It takes 2 people in order to use the emergency switch, at least on my unit. I can't push the emergency switch and generator start switch at the same time because they are not located in the same area.

RE: Name of this part?

With no cover on the regulator, water can get inside. The water can freeze, plugging up the vent which can cause an explosion and fire. If you don't cover it, someday you will wish you did. Have you ever read about a cabin with propane exploding? That is what happens.

RE: Insurance pay for plugging into the wrong power sorce?

I would check every electronic appliance or device in the MH...I bet more than just the microwave is fried On the money. Better check the charger and converter and any monitors that were running!

RE: 6.0 Ford diesel questions

I had and still have V-10 Crew Cab short bed that I pulled a 10,000 lbs + 32 ft 5th wheel. Had a lot of brake problems. Had to up grade to after market rotors and brake pads. Slow pulling long grades RPM as high as I could. Gradually slowing down on the long pull. Never could stay at 50 mph, pulling long grades. Brakes would get hot and fade going down hill. V-10 is a good reliable motor that keeps on going. Now I have a 2007 FORD class C with the 6.0 diesel. It is 14,500 lbs. +. I do not have brake problems or trouble pulling long grades. Most of the problems of the diesel engines were fixed by then plus motorhome engines are the better AMBULANCE MOTORS. I would not want to be pulling that weight with the V-10. I like the V-10 for it's purpose. They cannot out pull a diesel pulling heavy loads up a steep grade. Fuel milage about the same except V-10 uses a lot more fuel when pulling in the mountains.

RE: 6.0 Ford diesel questions

The V-10 will have to work harder than the diesel in order to get up and thru the mountains. V-10 will not be as good going down the mountains which means more brake usage. Curious how well the V-10 will pull a 14,500 lb. 31 ft. motorhome everyday.

RE: RV Roof Repair Qustion

It appears to be a 17 year old rubber roof with lots of coatings of something. The roof has expired. Have it replaced. No fixing at this stage of its age.
