RE: 8.1L Reduced engine power on LCD display

About once a year, my 8.1L would go in to "limp" mode, which is reduced power. My gauges would not rear right, etc. I would shut the engine down and go out and using the chassis battery disconnect switch, I would switch power off to the engine. This seemed to reboot the engine electronic control module and I would be good to go for maybe another year(10,000-15,000 miles) or so. This is not a new trick as mechanics have been disconnecting the battery to reset the electronics on vehicles for years. Sure it would be nice to find out what caused the issue but I was more interested in continuing my trip. If the problem came back immediately after I reset the ECM, naturally I would have done more to diagnose the problem. Since it only did this once a year or so, I figured it was caused by some sort of blip in the electronic controls and NOT a bad component.

RE: AC Clutch

Try a jumper wire from a known source of 12 volt power to the fan clutch. Then you just work your way backwards with the jumper until you find the place where the power stops.

RE: MCI Electric motorhome in 2020

30,000+ Scientists with more knowledge than you and you disagree. Now THAT is funny. :BIf those people were all climate scientists then it would be funny. I suppose if I had cancer, there may be 3 out of 100 doctors who either say it isn't or would offer some form of alternative treatment. I guess I'd side with the majority since it's risky to go the other way. At this point there's no changing anyone's mind, but it is interesting who chooses what to believe. Give me a list of more than 30,000 SCIENTISTS that will give conclusive evidence in favor of the global warming hoax and I might change my mind. Several esteemed scientists have been exposed doctoring the evidence to further their agenda in favor of global warming. Remember many of these scientists rely on outside funding to pay their salaries and I feel that some will make sure that their "scientific" research agrees with the opinions of those supplying the money.

RE: MCI Electric motorhome in 2020

Turns out that the amateurs may be right. :B"No convincing scientific evidence." That's pretty funny. 30,000+ Scientists with more knowledge than you and you disagree. Now THAT is funny. :B

RE: MCI Electric motorhome in 2020

For you amateur scientists, here is what 30,000+ real SCIENTISTS think about Global Warming. Global Warming Turns out that the amateurs may be right. :B

RE: MCI Electric motorhome in 2020

There is already talk, with California taking the lead, about TAXING electric vehicles to replace the revenue not generated by fuel sales. Right now electric MAY look like there will be a fuel savings but, just like everything else designed to save the consumer money, it will soon be taxed to take away any perceived savings.

RE: Generator keeps stopping

It also could be an air leak in the rubber fuel supply line to the generator.

RE: Help: 2 axle seal failures on this trip, leaking again

To answer your question....NO, do not put in thicker oil. If the vent is clogged, it will still leak out. What you need is a real mechanic, not the junior guy that was just promoted from tire changes and lube jobs, to find the problem.

RE: Allison 1000 02 workhorse w22

It's always good to be able to make it to your home base to deal with a problem. Hopefully it will be an uneventful trip. You can always manually shift it out of OD in those occasions when you do not want the transmission to shift in and out of OD on it's own.

RE: FlexSeal

FlexSeal is a petroleum based product and will soon dry out when exposed to the sun. For the roof on your RV, if you want a more permanent, long lasting seal, use a product designed for long term exposure to the sun, like Dicor, or Eternabond.

RE: Class A Coach with 4 proper seats w/ seatbelts?

As mentioned, Safari made one in the 2007-2009 era that was a 40' toy hauler with four captains chairs. The toy hauler section in the back had TWO queen sized drop down beds as well as a queen size drop down bed in the front. This model came with a front diesel engine. It was the Safari Simba line of coaches. Here is a link to one:Safari Simba

RE: inverter

What is weird is that MOST things in an RV will work just fine on a modified sine wave inverter. The things that usually give problems are the little things like a cell phone charger, digital clock, electric razor, etc. It is usually the small, inexpensive appliances that may not work well. I agree with the others....buy a pure sine wave and then you won't have to worry about it.

RE: new doghouse out of wood?

There is nothing wrong with building it out of plywood if you have the skill to do it right. Don't worry about a fire problem, fiberglass burns very well, as evidenced by thousands of fiberglass boat fires. In fact, wood will probably give you more warning, and more time use a fire extinguisher, than fiberglass in event of a fire. I would install a foil covered sound deadening material on the bottom side to help deaden the noise.

RE: Wheelbase and length

The design of the HOUSE and the placement of fuel tank plus the water and waste tanks, all determine the placement of the rear axle/wheelbase. It has nothing to do with cost and everything to do with making sure that both the front and rear axles are properly loaded per the manufacturer's specification.

RE: Mod for hooking up a utility trailer.

On my Monaco coach the rear view camera has a tilt feature. From the dash control I can tilt the camera almost straight down to view the hitch as I back up. Perhaps it might be easier, and cheaper, to purchase a rear view camera with the tilt feature so that you can monitor everything while backing up.

RE: AC Not Pushing Much Air

What you do is remove the lower section of your AC unit so that you can look up in to the bottom of your system to see how the duct is sealed. Then you get a roll of aluminum duct tape and some latex duct sealing paste at Home Depot. After you have cleaned everything and resealed the ducts, then you cover all of your tape joints with the duct sealing paste. This will prevent the tape from coming loose in the future. While you are at it, you will find four bolts that secure your AC unit to the coach. It is a good idea to check them to see that they are SNUG, not tight, which will ensure that your gasket is compressed enough to prevent water leaks.

RE: Sway on a gasser

4 corner air bags with a dash control to inflate or deflate worked for my Workhorse chassis. I do have Koni FRS shocks.

RE: How much R-134 ?

Auto-Zone, and some other large auto parts stores will LEND you a set of gauges, along with an instruction manual, if you want to go that way.
