RE: Intersate 5 in King Fire Area

The king fire is near Hwy 50 above Placerville and a long way from I 5. I don't see any smoke problems on I5 from this fire. There was a fire up north at Weed, Ca that was a problem on I5 but that fire has been contained.

RE: Onan fuel pump is noisy

Rick, are you aware that you can prime (run the fuel pump) by just pressing and holding the STOP/PRIME button on the genset and listen for the pump to click? I do this if the genset has not been run for awhile. As for the fuel line it should run at least down to a 1/4 tank, Could be your fuel gauge is off.

RE: 1989 cruise control

I have installed a few aftermarket CC's. As I recall they were made by Dana Corp. They had magnets that you glued on the drive shaft and installed a pickup on a bracket that had to have just the right air gap between the magnet and the pickup, this was the speed control that sent a signal to the brain box. Other then that, I don't remember too much. So if your's is a Dana, you might want to google dana and see what shows up.

RE: Yosemite Upper Pines CG - Max Vehicle vs. Max Trailer Length

Not sure about length restrictions but here is a link to a site that shows pictures of each site. Pick one you are interested in and take a look at the picture. Remember sometimes you can back up and let the rear end hang over a few feet so you can have room to park the tow vehicle. Upper Pines photo site

RE: Engine Compartment light on

there is a rocker switch at the drivers location that turns lights on in engine and wet bay compartments I agree with this. Look at the very low row of switches on the left side of the dash. Should be a switch for the engine compartment light and a switch for the wet bay compartment and maybe a switch for the tog lights.

RE: Gas leak on Generator

That filter was one of a defective batch made by Onan and it is leaking around the seams. Onan does not make that filter anymore. They make an adapter to take the place of the filter. Buy the adapter and removd the hose off of the filter and then remove/unscrew the old filter and screw in the adapter, slip the hose back on and you should be good to go. There is a second filter screwed into the fuel pump and it should be replaced with the new style filter. I will give you a link to the adapter and the new filter part number as soon as I find it. So in essence you end up with only one filter instead of two. I had the same leaking problem and I used the adapter. Onan adapter The old discontinued filter was Part number 0149-2629, The New replacement filter is part number 0149-2341-01. Here is the link New Onan filter I would try Channel lock pliers to remove/unscrew the old filter

RE: onan 40 watt emerald 1 not starting

Well the first thing I notice is it has not been run enough over it's 24 years of life. 32 hours in 28 years is not enough to keep the fuel fresh and the varnish out of the Carburetor. First of all you might try priming by pushing and holding down the STOP button on the gen set itself and listen for the clicking of the fuel pump, hold down until the clicking slows down or quits, then try to start. Otherwise it looks like time for professional help. If you get it running, in the future run it with a load at least 1 hour every month to keep it exercised.

RE: warped brake roters

Warped rotors can also be caused by improper tightening sequence with an air gun. Should use an torque wrench for the final tightening of the lug nuts. The chrome wheel covers probably have nothing to do with the problem since most are held on with jam nuts after the lugs are torqued.

RE: Just a Suggestion:Theft

Here it seems to be catalytic converter theft, especially lifted 4 wheelers with large tires which allows the thief to just slide under, sawsall in hand and done in very short order. Most MH's fall into this category, easy to slide under. Catalytic conv. have Palladium in them that brings a good price from a shady scrap dealer.

RE: Best way to take out rear seats on a 2014 Honda EX-L CR-V?

I would strongly consider adding a brake system to the CRV,

RE: Driving CA 120 from the west up the New Priest Grade.

You should be OK since the alternative Hwy to get to groveland is many miles further. 120 is indeed steep and windy but it is doable. Because it is steep and has tight turns you won't have to obtain a lot of speed. one thing that I find helpful going up east is you or your co pilot can look up the mountain and see the traffic coming down. That gives you a heads up on when you might meet that vehicle coming around a turn. Take your time around those tight turns and try to keep in your lane and you should be OK.

RE: Lights on Drivers side in coach will not light.

Are these lights in a slide out? If so put the slide out and get underneath and look for a disconnected harness or pinched wires.

RE: Leveling jacks won't work

Fleetwood usually uses power gear levelers. The best thing to do is go back to square one. Start the engine, Move the shift lever to PARK. Make sure you put the emergency brake on fully. Turn the levelers switch to ON. push front leveler switch and listen for leveler motor to run. Give that a try, could be that you missed a step somewhere in your procedure. Report back with results and we can go from there.

RE: Ok to run 5500 Onan on 20 amp curcuit?

Does anyone run their 5500 Onan on a 20 amp plug? The Onan manual I have states the running amps well under 20 but I dont know what the start-up amps would be, if its even different. Your question makes no sense. Are you sure that you are talking about an Onan GENERATOR? UR ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT AN AIR CONDITIONER running on 20 amps? Reply back so we can help you.

RE: Worst service experience ever!

1st time I have used it, needed a tire. So bad that after many hours even the phone rep felt bad and said it was beyond belief. And this was in a metropolitan area! Sam phone was incapable of summoning service. Still have not followed through with my five hundred dollar receipt, or my complaint. Just simply awful! I hope you are not expecting GOOD SAM to pay for your new tire!! Their policy is to replace your blown out tire with your mounted and inflated spare. if you have no spare they will try and get a tire service to try and find a tire in your size and replace your blown out tire with the new tire but the cost of the tire is your response=ability. It is spelled out in the policy, take a look. And this is policy for almost all roadside assistance companies. just a heads up. Quote from GSRA about tire policy " Flat Tire Service Learn More If you get a flat tire while you're on the road, we'll have an experienced technician come and change it with your spare. If you don't have a spare, we'll utilize our tire network to find you one. (You are responsible for the cost of parts and labor" Right from the policy.

RE: Sacramento, Ca

You could drive an extra 35 or 40 miles south and stop at Flag City RV park at Hwy 12 and I 5. There is a flying J there also. Then you are closer to Yosemite for a good morning start. Flag City RV

RE: Dolly towing a 4 down vehicle

I have a 2002 Honda CRV AWD and it is towable only 4 wheels down or 4 wheels up on a sled type tow truck, but never on a tow dolly with only 2 wheels on the ground, either front wheels or back wheels. Transmissions and differencials won't last hardly any miles

RE: Quadrajet Carb Leaking?

I had Quadra jets and they had a habit of the composite floats absorbing gasoline and thus becoming to heavy to float so they would sink thus opening the needle and seat and flooding the carb. I don't know what the float weighs when new but compare the weight of the old one with the new. If it is heavier replace it.

RE: Remapping Transmission on Triton V10?

The cruse control is just doing what you set it to do. You set it for 65 and all it is trying to do is maintain 65 going up that mountain. How does it do that? by giving it more throttle and then that causes the RPM's to climb to 4000 or higher just trying to do whst you told it to do, maintain 65 MPH going up that mountain. Take control back from that guy named CRUISE and turn it OFF and use your foot and your gear shift to drive the speed you want going up that mountain because with cruise control it is never going to reach/maintain 65 going up that mountain anyway, just reving your engine which is what you are trying to fix according to your post. It is called "driving", Try it and save your money on a shift program. Just my opinion and offered as such
