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!

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

Well Guys.......I appreciate all of the input. The old adage of "if you want something done right, do it yourself" certainly applies in this scenario. I would have thought that the shop I took it to, would have at least changed the fuel filter this week. I pulled the fuel off this afternoon and poured out what appeared to be mud and rust. I changed it. It now runs perfect. The fuel filter was the culprit. Thanks for all of the advice. Will definitely be asking more questions in the coming months.

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

I would have thought the shop would have found the bad temperature sensor. You may have something with the exhaust break. We were mentioning yesterday that it felt like the breaks were on, but could not detect that they were. Now to find the exhaust break. I'm green when it comes to the diesel chasis'.

New to me 93 Monoco Diplomat - 1st Diesel

I have a 93 Monoco Diplomat. Took it to the shop for a once over. They ran engine diagnostics and fixed some electrical issues with the transmission cooling fan. I have three problems; Once the engine is heated up and have run it down the interstate, it wants to idol rough. It has not stalled, but seems like it wants to. 2) The turbo works 98% of the time, but occasionally on initial start of acceleration, the turbo does not work. I take my foot off the accelerator, re-accelerate and the turbo then works. 3) I have some dash lights that are not working and the windshield wipers are not working. I have the checked the fuses and everything seems to be fine. I have direct wired the wipers and they work fine, I would just like for it to work as intended. Any advice would be appreciated. I only have experience with the F53 chasis, the diesel is a whole new animal for me. Thanks Mark

RE: RV vs Truck tires.

I put 19.5 Samsons on my rig in 2012. They have a little stiffer ride than the Goodyears, but sidewalls and overall tire are heavier duty. In 2012 I had a local tire shop put 6 on for approximately $1100.00 out the door. This summer, I drove around the forgotten coast of Florida, then south along the gulf coast of Florida, Keys, back up through the space coast, Orlando and back home to Pensacola Florida. Last week drove over a thousand miles round trip to Ashville, North Carolina. My coach is governed at 75. I keep it pegged out on the interstates. I sing SG music and traveled with a pro-group that put in upwards of 100,000 miles per year on their Prevost. I slept in my bunk while rolling down the road on Samsons. Now there are some on this site that are die hard Michelin people. That is fine, if you have money to burn. I don't, so cheaper is better for me. The ride....well, it does not make that big of a difference to me. Oh....most of your camper dealers like CW will charge much more for a set of tires. Try calling some of the local, well known tire dealers around town and see if they can install them for you, before going to the Camper dealers.

RE: What's involved to swap my Generac to Onan?

I had a generac primepact 50G, 4800 watt gas generator and absolutely hated it. Worst generator i've ever owned. There were tons of problems with it. First one was the arm that controls the engine speed broke(made of very thin steel)while I was on a week-long camping trip, boondocking and had no power for most of the trip. Made the trip miserable. So I welded it back together and away I went. Then, the carburetor started leaking from the float bowl rubber gasket. Guess what, can't buy parts for the carburetor. But you can buy a new carburetor for lots of money. Also, this genny was VERY hard to start all the time. Crank, crank, crank, and sometimes crank some more before it would actually start. It was all dialed in and tuned up, just a steaming pile of junk. All this with a full tank of gas, clean filters, topped up oil, etc. Never again. I had the exact generator with mostly the same problems. Could not keep it running while driving down the road either. It was the worst experience I ever had. Dealing with the authorized Generac dealer was a nightmare as well. Finally paid for a brand new onan 5500 installed. 600 hours later, it is still running perfectly.

RE: 2007 Ford F53 chassic motor home tranny

Come to think about it, the only time I really notice mine is while going down hill or when I am coming to a quick stop. It uses the higher RPM a little more to slow the coach rather than the brakes. Mine still shifts into overdrive just fine in tow/haul mode.

RE: wont move when in gear

Check to make sure you are getting proper voltage. It could be something as simple as needing new batteries and/or alternator.
