RE: Exhaust Manifold Gasket Leak and click, click noise?

Not a difficult repair. I did just that on my ISL last year. Yes, soaked the manifold bolts with a good penetrating oil for a couple of days before attempting to pull then. Broke zero of them, and that was on a 2003 engine. Probably good idea to take it to a Cummins dealer for manifold, gaskets and fasteners replacement. Which way are you headed from Nacogdoches?

RE: 50 amp pedastal/extension

Yes, CAREFUL HERE! AN RV 50 amp connection is the same as in a house: TWO hots-- the two outer straights One neutral-- center straight One ground-- center round

RE: odd camper

Sorry, had a NUMBER of VW campers-- starting with 1958 through 1977. As any Texan would say: THAT AIN'T RIGHT. Said another way, that interior would now fit in any VW vans of that time frame.

RE: 11.9 liter cummins dip stick problem.

Confirm total oil quantity with filter change for your engine serial number with Cummins. THEN, calibrate you engine's oil dipstick. Remember, this was not supplied by Cummins, as it would have been too short for a DP application. The dip stick is most likely the thing that is out of sync with your engine/oil quantity. Calibrating is FREE at next oil change.

RE: FMCA Michelin tire program issues

You need to look at your invoice and see how much you got charged FET. Even in Oregon you still have to pay Federal Excise Tax on certain size tires. Then you heed to see how much was mounting labor, valve stems, balancing,etc On my purchase with the FMCA program the FET was part of the Michelin side of the payment, tires and FET payment by credit card to Michelin. The mount and balance was paid to the dealer, Dale's Tires in Rapid City. $260.76 Correct. FET is paid directly to Michelin as part of the tire purhcase price.

RE: brake light switch

Again, the switch should not cause brakes to lock up. I guess if really mis-adjusted, it could keep the brakes (brake pedal) from fully releasing.

Come in black and white. Last thousands of hours on our boats/RV's.

RE: brake light switch

Bill, Welcome. Please explain in more detail-- how does pushing the brake light SWITCH (not pedal)engage the brake? What chassis? And, yes, on 100% of vehicles, pushing the service brake should turn OFF the cruise control.

RE: F53 Horsepower rating

Same engine, they just changed the HP measurement from 4750 RPM to 4000 RPM. I don't know if that was an SAE mandated spec change or not, but 4000 is probably a more real world measurement versus the peak 4750 measure. Correct. And a GOOD move-- re-specing the engine for a more reasonable RPM range makes it better for our/RV needs.

RE: Class C, OWNERS ONLY PLEASE American or Foreign Chasses

2004 Ford does NOT have spark plug thread issue. That was on earlier model modular Ford engines. How many miles do you have on it, that it is time for spark plug replacement?

RE: Jacks down lightcame on

What brand/model? Different ones use different "triggers" for activating the jack down light. Without that information, we could very easily tell you how OURS works, but it may be different than YOURS.

RE: Keeping Front Door Open on a Diesel

You will need to let us know what motorhome you have for us to be of assistance. Does it have a posi-lock?

RE: FMCA Michelin tire program issues

$90 per tire for mount and balance? WOW. Are you sure that did not include state tax which is also clearly not collected through the FMCA/Michelin program? But, both mounting/balancing and state tax would be exactly the same whether through the FMCA program or direct through the local dealer.

RE: Car braking unit?

There is no "best for all situations" toad brake. That is why some companies like Roadmaster make several kinds. "Best" depends on factors such as: Is coach gas or diesel? How often do you change tow vehicles? How much of a hassle do you find moving/storing a "brake in a box" vs permanently installed systems? The more you tell us about your needs and equipment, the less "here it what I chose to best fit MY, repeat MY needs" and more about the best options for you. Example: the fact that the Roadmaster Invisibrake was the best solution for MY needs (and it was) does not mean it is necessarily the best for YOUR needs.

RE: Exhaust brake 12 volt power source

Reasonably complex, since the signal comes from the exhaust brake switch AND the throttle AND then through the transmission ECM through at least one and generally two relays. With a 1996, you may still be on a Freightliner chassis. If so, they can provide you with a wiring diagram.

RE: Complicated fridge question, stay with me here... :\

Only way to get 6 VDC from two 6 VDC batteries wired in series is for wire feeding the refrigerator to be coming directly off ONE battery rather than for the ground from one and hot from the other. Yes, this assumes the batteries are OK. Would be too much of a coincidence for their to be exactly a 6 volt drop across wiring and connections.
