RE: Onan fuel filter

Thanks again Cloud, we do have a slight different config. Mine has 2- 10 plug vertical connectors under the air filter, the solinod is in the middle and the board is over to the left on the bottom and another loom over it. The onan shell sits to low and close to the cabinet to access the torx screws in the front. Just a poor design all around, and then really shoehorned in to small of a cabinet for proper maintenance. Think I'm going to give up without breaking anything as it runs OK, just wanted to do some PM.

RE: Onan fuel filter

Thanks Cloudriver, good explanation. However there is only about 1.5" between the edge of the Onan and the cabinet it sits in. Maybe if I remove the 4 bolts holding it down and shifting the tail pipe, there might be enought slack in all the wires to pry it to the right enought to get my arm back there. Looks like the only option. Thanks again.

Onan fuel filter

Subject: 4KYFA26100G. Wanting to change the fuel filter in this gen set. Maybe the "G" prefix makes it impossible as I see it to change the filter without removing the whole ball of wax from the cabinet which I rather not go thru. With a mirror and flash light I see something about the size of a D cell flashlight battery(filter?) Problem is it is strapped(?) to the bottom of the pan under the air filter and behind the starter solinod and at least 3 wiring harness and other electrical boxes. In all of my manuals and what I've seen on line, there is no depiction of the location of the filter, or the fuel pump. The manual shows the fuel hose from the vehicle tank coming into a barb fitting in the back left of the cabinet and exiting into the carb, but nothing in between. So question is how do you change this filter?

RE: Hood won't open

On my "E" 350 had the same problem. Mine was caused by easing the hood down and not giving a good hard shove at the last moment to get the lock to fully seat. The cable or the latch in the grill wouldn't release. I had to take off the windshield wipers, that plastic panel under the wipers to get access to remove the hinge bolts completely removing the hood. Reset the hood latch and put everything back together. Just don't baby the hood when closing. If you have to go this route, operate your cable release before reassembly to make sure cable has not parted somewhere along its path.

RE: Getting all the water out of the water heater

I use a turkey baster with a short piece of hose to suck out the last bit of water. This also sucks out the bits of anode rod that don't come out with flushing. Only 1$ at dollar store.

RE: Norcold 6053

OP again. I've found at least 6 different model numbers for the burner assembly, that all look exactly alike. However no cross reference to my #6053 model refer.

RE: Norcold 6053

Thanks Chris, that's the part I'm talking about. I,m on the road right now but will undertake the disassembly when I get home. For now it's working on DC/AC. On ebay I find several model numbers for the burner assembly, cheapest being $30. And with a new hose $50. Would you happen to know what model # would I need, this is a 1998 or there about year refer 6053.

Norcold 6053

What is the name of the part that is the terminus of the gas line. This is the 1/4" aluminum tubing after the shutoff and after the electrical connection. It is where the gas comes out and is ignited in the tube that exhausts thru the chimney. My refer is working fine on AC and DC, but shuts off after 1 second on gas. Looking at it at time of ignition the flame is coming out around the "thing" instead of out of the orifice. There was some mud dobber accumulation around the end, cleaned up as best I can but still not working properly. Think there might be a clog I can't find.

RE: V10 coolant change

Got to say that in all my years, I've never seen a coolant filter. Looked at youtube and saw several installs, but only on diesels. Where did you mount the base? How hard to change filter as needed?

V10 coolant change

Book says 30 qt capacity for coolant. A 50/50 mix would then require almost 4 gal of concentrate, which seems like a lot. I know when I drain, the block and heater core probably will not, so how much concentrate should I plan for? 97 E350.

RE: Wheel nut torque on 1993 Coachman Catalina

Check to see if it is etched on the face of the lug nut. My 97 E350 are 140 lbs.

RE: VIAIR air compressors?

This is a case of you get what you pay for. Keep your motor running when you use a Viair, draws a lot of amps, and it will get hot. Nice to have for flat tires on the tractors when out in the field.

RE: Every. Decal. Peeling.

Forget the hot air removal. Just redid mine starting with a hair dryer. really made a mess. Got a 3M eraser wheel ($) and put in a corded drill. Works like a champ, and also removes the adhesive residue. This was on a 15 year old fiberglass unit so the decals were really stuck on. Ended up taking back the 3M adhesive remover ($) as not needed. Wiped down with acetone before I replaced with new decal stripes. Check out some vids on utube using the eraser wheel.

RE: air compressor

Spend the money and get a Viair. 12volts so multi uses around the farm...tractor, riding lawn mower. It really inflate a RV tire from plum flat to 65lbs in about 2 min. Very small with its kit so stores anywhere.

RE: Be Carefully Buying A Rental

Was at a NP in line to dump. rental in front was filling water from the clean up hose. I cautioned them, his reply was "we don't drink the water".

RE: Vinyl insert molding trim

I had to use a hair dryer to soften the vinyl to make sharp turns, then hold in place till it cools and returns to shape.

RE: How big is your fuel tank?

1997 E350 V10 35 gal. Are all gas pump flows the same? When in Canada never could get the pump to run by "setting the trigger". Had to nurse every gallon in by slowly squeezing the trigger. Seems like all stations down south will run till almost completly full.
