Its the 4000 watt quiet type gen, 02 model with carb and single cly, I will check and replace fuel filter soon to see if it works.
Yes it came on slowly and now has gotten worse, does level out and runs good but only after 15 minutes of running, I also noticed it takes a little longer for it to start than it did a year ago..
My 02 Onan 4000 wt gen is surging, mostly when its cold but now its happening even after warm up but does run good but only after 10-15 minutes of running, what is the problem and how does one fix this.
I have a 49cc moped here in Nevada and it requires no licence plates, but according to California it requires moped licence plates, however I am a Nevada resident and can I use my moped while staying at a campground in Cali on there roads..
Has anyone ran into this problem in Cali..
Fleetwood Flairs were made up till 2006 and they were the lower priced good quality class A, my 2002 Flair has been a great coach, no leaks, no issues and it comes in both Ford and Workhorse chassis depending on the size, however $20,000 is a little low for around a 30 footer with slides.
Stay 2002 and newer and you will get a better chassis.
I always wondered about those RVers stuck on the highway with thousands of cars for hours and hours when they evacuated Houston over that hurricane scare that never hit the town, I wonder how many times people were banging on the RV to use the bathroom and borrow water, how would one say no to that and hope they don't over take the RV..
Not telling one to scam but it can be done, rent the house and include all utilities, that way everything is still in your name, also have the renters forward your mail to you, I don't think the banks send people out to check on who is living there.
I'm thinking seriously about upgrading from a Truck Camper to a used, smaller Class A. I'm interested in knowing from folks who've had the experience, what's it cost to replace/overhaul the engine and/or transmission if I get a bad one?? (gas)
Trans can run from $1600.00 for a 3 speed, $2000.00 for a 4 speed/OD and not sure what a 5 speed Alison would run but sure it would be $2500.00 plus.
A gas motor plus install in a motorhome would be $5000.00 plus..
The cost I just mention is rebuilt motor and trans, not factory new, that will cost about 40% more.
I myself don't believe in these clear bra's, what people don't know is time/heat/sun will destroy these clear bras and removing them will be difficult and how many will destroy the paint in removing them, here in Vegas many expensive sport cars are having them put on but from the sun/heat here in 5-8 years they will have to have the hood repainted because of the damage of removal.
I have own many cars and RV's and very little damage over the years without clear or vinyl bra's on front.
yes you can, several people have done similar installs
lost cost per watt high voltage panels with mppt controllers, "pay off' when installing larger systems
but are NOT as cost efficient when installing only One panel, or limited $$ are involved
with only 200+ watts and the necessity of an almost $400 controller, the expense per watt just took a big jump
if your going too add more panels first install or later then it balances out the cost of the mppt controller
I was wondering that, thought a 24 volt high watt system would require a more expensive controller, those panels seem good for homes or heavy loads but I have small loads and only use this RV 5 to 6 times per year any ways, thanks for all the info I think I am going with the 120 watt panel for $145.00 so I have plenty of power, I want to keep it simple and low cost..
All the mountain passes go to high elevations and have twisty roads. I'll rate the ones between Tahoe and Yosemite from easiest to do with a motorhome to most difficult:
1. Easiest is by far I-80. Goes to just over 7000 feet and is a freeway all the way.
2. Next is Highway 50. 7300 feet at Echo Summit, but a good road. Lots of steep drop offs, but they have gaurd rails or rock walls. But people have managed to get over the rock wall and ended up 2000 feet below the roadway when their vehicle came to rest.
3. State Route 88 is next. It gets up to 8600 feet, good road, easy to do in a motorhome.
4. State Route 120 is in 4th place. Almost to 10,000 feet at the top and lots of steep drop offs. Don't run off the road.
5. State Route 108 is next, but now we're getting into don't do it in a motorhome roads. I have taken a 30 foot Class C rental over 108, and I would not do it again. I would not take my class A wide-body over it.
6. State Route 4. I haven't been on 4 over the top in a long time, but if my memory is correct, it gets down to 1 lane in many places and no way would I take a motorhome on it. Both 4 and 108 don't go as high as 120 in elevation, but 120 is the much better road.
Oh yea Sonora Pass Rt 108, stay clear of that, I did that in a 26 foot class A pulling a Jeep, never, never again, it took 10 years off my life and smoked my front brakes.
Check out a used Fleetwood Flair, they made them up till 2007, they were the lower cost class A but still better value over the Terra, I know this because I was looking at a used Terra and was about to buy it but than I found my 2002 Flair, much better quality, larger compartments under coach, level floor all the way to the driver seat compared to the used Terra, not sure what the new ones are, larger water/gray/black tanks, oh yea and I only paid $22,000 for a used 02 Flair with 29,000 miles, near new tires and still like new inside.
(that was 2 years ago)
Are you wanting to charge batteries or just a maintainer? 85W is a little light but that depends on your battery capacity though.
To charge, I am also thinking of the 120 watt for $145.00 might be a better deal, I don't have high power usage with my RV, only want to fire up gen less while dry camping.
I have 2 six volt batteries, don't plan add more at this moment, but have thought about added 2 more.
Are these good solar panels for RV use, Amazon is selling them for $120.00, seems like a great price..
