RE: Ford V10 engine surging idle and power , help please ??

Had the same problem. I had a small leak in one of my coolant hoses leaking down onto one of the spark plugs causing it to misfire. New spark plugs and hoses took care of the problem. Hope you find the problem.

RE: Rear Trac Bar over time on F-53

I purchased a supersteer trac bar. This is what I purchased for my rig. This does not mount to your differential housing. You may have to copy and paste the link in your address bar. http://www.supersteerparts.com/products/supersteer-trac-bar-for-ford-f53-14k-18k-chassis-with-rear-differential-cover.html

RE: Rear Trac Bar over time on F-53

There are some track bars that do not mount directly to the differential housing. I purchased one that mounts to the sway bar bracket instead. I have only had it on my rig for about 6 months, but have driven up to Branson and back without any problems. Has fixed my oversteering issues. It feels like it tightens up the handling fairly substantially. I did install a front trac bar at the same time.

RE: How is the Ford (Class A) chassis supposed to handle?

My suggestion would be to drive a new diesel pusher on a freightliner chassis or something comparable. Then drive the F53 chassis. There is a large difference. IMHO, it would be the difference between a standard car and a go cart. I do have the F53 chassis on my motorhome and have had to modify it just to get it feeling safe driving it down the interstate. The modifications help, but none make it comparable to a diesel chassis.

RE: Installed New Samson Tires on Mtr Hm today

I installed Samsons on mine in 2012. Payed roughly the same price you did. Drove my MH to Key West last summer and drove to Utah during Christmas break. Have had several shorter trips too. No problems and they still look good. Will install them again when they time out in 2019. Do not understand people paying all that money for high priced tires to just throw them away when they time out.

RE: High hours on generator

Agree with everyone else. I have about 900 hours on mine. It's about 8 years old. It looks good and runs great. I usually take two long trips a year. I change the oil before each trip. Runs like a sewing machine.

Cost for replacing Ring and Pinion rear end F3 chassis

What should be an approximate cost for replacing the ring and pinion set on my F53 chassis. I was quoted $2300.00

RE: Chassis Battery on a 93 Monaco Royale Elite

The TS will not overcharge your batt. A house batt connection may cause you over/under charge since that system was not designed to handle both. Many folks use the TS wired permanently as a solution with zero issues. Thanks, I did not realize this system uses the existing house charging system. I just ordered one online. They give you two options, I ordered the 5 amp option rather than the 15 amp. Hoping it works. I am the third owner of this rig, so I am not sure what has been wired where. Thinking somewhere along the way the starting battery was wired into something in the house and causing it to drain even with the 12 volt system off.

RE: Chassis Battery on a 93 Monaco Royale Elite

Get a Trik L Start charger, about $50 and you will be set. :) I'm having to do that now, but was hoping I could use the house system to keep it maintained when I plug into shore power or turn on the generator.

Chassis Battery on a 93 Monaco Royale Elite

My Chassis battery does not maintain a charge when parked. I have turned off everything in the coach, including 12 volt and 120 volt system to include flipping the breakers off. The starting battery is still being drawn down over a period of a couple of weeks. When looking in the battery bay, I notice the house battery wiring harness has a 12 volt male and female end that appear to have been hooked into something that I think is suppose to go to the main starting battery to maintain a charge when plugged into shore power. Can I run a 12 volt patch wire from the house batteries to the main starting battery so that the main starting battery will maintain a charge when plugged into shore power or when the generator is running? My only concern by doing this is the possibility of burning up wiring or an alternator when the engine and generator are running at the same time. Looking for some answers? Thanks

RE: Real cause of "rivering" or cupping? Air pressure?

"Rivering", that is, heavy wear in a single groove around a tire, isn't readily explainable, and is way different in appearance than cupping or scuffing or alignment or air pressure related wear. This is exactly what is happening. "Rivering"

RE: Real cause of "rivering" or cupping? Air pressure?

They are not Good year tires. I have not had the alignment checked in over 3 years. Thinking I may need to have that done. It is strange that the wear would only be on the right steer tire though. Usually alignment issues I have had in the past affect both tires on the front or back. Was thinking that air pressure may have had something to do with it. Did not realize altitude had that big of a difference in air pressure coming from sea level. All items inside the coach in sealed containers expanded as well. Gallon of milk, lotions, shampoos, etc. Just stands to reason the vast difference in air pressure from sea level to Amarillo. I did pump that right tire up a little higher than the others before leaving. The wear did not seem to be as bad after letting the additional air out of the tire. Finished the rest of the trip without any noticeable additional wear. Cannot be sure if that fixed it though.

Real cause of "rivering" or cupping? Air pressure?

I just got back from a 4,000 mile trip out west. My right front tire has about a 1/4 inch wide divet on the tread. It is about one inch from the outside edge of the tire. None of the other tires are showing this kind of wear. I am curious if air pressure is the main cause? I left with 90lbs of pressure down south and when I got to Amarillo, the air pressure was above 120lbs in that particular tire. The air pressure was much higher in every tire, but that one was higher than the rest.

Chains for driving on snow and ice

I have a single axle in the rear with dual tires. Do I need chains for both tires, or just the outside tires? Not anticipating that I will use them, but will have them just in case I get caught in a snow and ice scenario.

RE: My wife is concerned about personal security

Well, with that large DP there should be ample room to mount a pump action shot gun on the wall in the bedroom. That should be enough security if, in the unlikely event someone does break in. Seriously, we do keep a shot gun on board. Better to be safe than sorry. If your wife is anxious about security, a condo in a gated community may be a better choice.

Durango during Christmas

Planning on taking the MH to Durango, Colorado and vicinity during Christmas. Will be pulling the Jeep too. What are your experiences during the winter months in Durango? What should we absolutely do?

RE: Are tow Dolly's a Hassle?

Yes, the tow dolly is a hassel. I have had one. I purchased a 2012 jeep wrangler to replace my car and dolly. The tow dolly has to be placed somewhere while at a campground and at home. With limited space at campgrounds, this can be challenging. The tow straps have to be checked shortly after you start your trip. Never trust how tight you have your straps. I was driving through downtown Atlanta with both straps blowing in the wind thinking they were as tight as I could get them. Hated the tow dolly. Being able to tow 4 down is a dream.

RE: 1st time using Coach-Net

Good to know! Just renewed our Coach Net this weekend. I have only used it once in the past 7 years. It was not for my motorhome though.

RE: New to me 93 Monoco Diplomat - 1st Diesel

Hey guys. I have another question. After the coach sits for a couple of days, the coach is sitting down on top of the tires in the rear. Once the air builds back up while the engine is running, the coach raises back up to normal ride height. After turning the engine off, I hear air venting from the air tank up front. Is this normal?

RE: New to me 93 Monoco Diplomat - 1st Diesel

Wow!! What a wealth of information. I know now right where to lubricate the pac brake. You guys are right. I found the other fuel filter up near the top of the engine. Will be replacing that tonight. Keep the information coming. Thanks guys!
