RE: A/C will not get cold and compressor running.

Spend your money on a manual valve somewhere in the system to stop the hot water from circulating. Close it in the summer and open it in the winter. Sounds like a good idea in general, even if there is not a problem at all. Thanks for the advice. Will do.

RE: A/C will not get cold and compressor running.

I have discovered that I am having a problem with the electronic water valve on mine. It is a two hose system. I blocked the hose that exits from the valve going to the heater core with a pair of vice grips. It works and I am getting cold air now. If I block the upper hose to the heater core too, will this create pressure in the heater core causing potential problems, or is it OK to do this? NO, it will not create any problems. Think about it. What happens when the water valve functions correctly? It blocks the water flow off completely. Why did you not block the inlet hose first,instead ???? Doug Thanks Doug! Which is the inlet hose? On the valve there is an arrow that I think indicates which way the coolant is flowing. I blocked the hose as it exits the valve going to the core. There is an upper hose connected to the core that I think is going back to the engine. This is the hose that I was referring to when I asked if I could potentially block both hoses. A new electronic valve cost approximately $200 after shipping. I think I will opt for just blocking the hose as I am not sure if it is the valve or the controller, or a combination of both that could be the issue.

RE: dash air problem

When I could not get cold air after the engine warmed up. We put a clamp on the hose feeding hot water to the heater. The AC worked fine with that hose clamped. In my case the heater control valve was bad. Later a vacuum hose failed and caused a similar condition. Hope this helps. Thanks AJR! I just did the same thing and am now getting cold air. I have a question though. Will it harm the heater core if I block both hoses? I thought that if you block the hose feeding the heater core that the top/exit hose should be cool to the touch. It is remaining hot.

dash air problem

The dash air on my 2007 Damon Daybreak is putting out moderately cool air when the engine is initially started. After the engine gets to operating temperature the dash air turns to a luke warm temperature. I have had two AC techs look at it and tell me that the system is fully charged with coolant and leak free. They have also said that the compressor is working fine. I am not too familiar with the AC terminology, but one of the AC techs disconnected the two hoses from the heater core and flushed the system to eliminate clogging in the hoses/core. Everything appears to be working fine. The (temperature control valve)? Within the engine compartment is responding to the thermostat on the AC/heater on the dash. There is obviously hot water bypassing something to prevent the cooling of the system. Can anyone advise? Again, I am not too familiar with AC terminology, but if it is as simple as replacing an electronic valve, I would prefer to do that rather than take my MH in again and pay for labor.

RE: Chasis/Engine/drive train work F53 Chasis Pensacola Florida

I tried that. The people they referred me to only work on diesel.

Chasis/Engine/drive train work F53 Chasis Pensacola Florida

World Ford in Pensacola use to work on the chassis/engine/drive train of the F53 motorhomes. I took my motorhome in last year to have my rear end serviced and they refused to work on it. Who in Pensacola or nearby vicinity will work on this part of my motorhome? Does anyone have any advice of good mechanics that can take care of the engine and chassis? Thanks

RE: Am I the only one?

What size tires did you get for $2500? I paid $1299 for 6 Samsons out the door from Vannoys tires here in Pensacola last year. Camping World tends to mark their prices up on just about everything. I do like my Samsons though. In response to the folks who will only buy American. I would too if the American product prices where somewhere in the ballfield of competitive. To pay a 100% or greater mark up on a product that does not provide that much more benefit is not very practical.

RE: Roof Paint

It would look nice for you to do that. Use a polyurethane paint with an additive activator. It will place a hard coat of paint over your existing roof while adding an additional sealant. You can purchase through summit racing. Would love to see pics when finished.

RE: Driving in Windy Conditions

We are planning a trip in that direction around the beginning of July. Is there a time of year that the winds are less intense? We took that trip a few years back around the middle of June pulling a TT and it was an awful experience fighting that wind.

RE: BF Goodrich Sumitomo or Samson

Tires on this forum are like discussing politics and religion. I have 6 Samson tires on my rig and they are performing just fine without problems. I too found mine cheaper at a local tire shop. Camping World tends to mark their prices up. Not sure if Samson makes car tires, but will definitely check into it when I need them.

RE: Removing original decals

It's not as easy as it looks, especially if the decals are worn and cracking. I removed all of mine, but not without a lot of frustration and time. I am in the process of repainting my coach now. I removed mine with a heat gun and paint scraper.

RE: How do you reach the front of the engine?

That's what I was afraid of. :(

RE: The "Fix" rear sway bar?

Thanks everyone. I performed the fix with the stock arms on both front and back. I took it out for a couple of mile drive to see if I could tell much of a difference. The steering feels more responsive and the body roll is much less when making a turn. I am making a trip out west this summer. I hope this helps some with the wind.

How do you reach the front of the engine?

I am not a master mechanic, but I can do smaller projects like replacing a serpentine belt, tensioners, alternator, etc. How in the world do you get up into that tight space to replace these items? I have an F53 chassis in a 2007 Damon Daybreak. Thanks

RE: Sealant for cracks..

Yep, been there done that with silicone. It does not stick to anything. Regular latex caulk without silicone would be better than silicone based caulking, but Dicor lap sealant is the best.

RE: The "Fix" rear sway bar?

Thanks. That can be an easy project after I finish lunch. :)

The "Fix" rear sway bar?

I performed the "fix" on the front sway bar this morning and took it for a test drive. I was very impressed with the tighter feel on the front end. Should I do the same to the rear sway bar. Will I notice much of a difference? Thanks

RE: Tire Balancing

I am very picky about the slightest wobble or jitter in my ride. I had all 6 tires tru-balanced. I am surprised this has not been mentioned yet. It is relatively expensive, but fixes the wobble/imbalance from all components of the wheel assembly, not just the tire. Very few shops do this.

RE: Possible Samson Tire Issues, Maybe Not Worth The Savings

Not sure your humming noise should be coming from those tires. I replaced mine this year with success. They ride just slightly harder than my Goodyears that I replaced, but I also replaced them with a little heavier duty sidewall Samson tire. I am not getting any strange humming noises. Are you sure the noise is not coming from the rear end? Check to make sure you do not have any brake calipers that have locked up on you too.
