RE: Success with AC coil cleaning

Most RV A/C air filters are really poor. In addition to dirt, humidity significantly adds to deposits on the evaporator coil. Said another way, when the coils are WET from condensation, lots sticks to them. 9 years and clean is shocking unless in very dry and clean environment.

RE: Microwave and converter fried at campground

Correct me if I am wrong, but on a 30 amp circuit, you have a HOT and a NEUTRAL. If the NEUTRAL loses connection (which is what happened to fry his stuff) you have NO CONNECTION. You can only have the 0v and 240v (or low voltage/high voltage) difference if you have both HOTs connected with no NEUTRAL.You can have very high voltage on 30A due to a open neutral. It happened to me and of course the open neutral was in the CG 120/240V distribution. This is I suspect a rare incident but it happened to me. Fortunately I had installed a PI full power protector and it disconnected the rig power and no harm. The voltage was displayed on the remote and I could not pull the plug fast enough. Sorry, not correct. Yes, on 50 amp (two hots) and open neutral can cause very high/very low voltage. But, an open neutral on a 30 amp (single hot) will just cause NO POWER.

Phil, I just pulled up your profile picture. Are you sure it is a 1999 chassis??? Never seen a tag axle 1999. 1998 yes. 460 V8 or the V10 engine?

RE: Engine stubbles at idle speed

Suspect quite a lot of that will buff out with rubbing/polishing compound, leaving only the horizontal mark.

RE: sway bar and steering stabilizer

There is no "here is the fix for all of them". What aftermarket things are needed/desirable depends on a number of factors: What chassis? Advice for a Workhorse P vs Workhorse W vs Ford will not be the same. What length (actually Wheelbase/Overall Length)? How is it loaded?

RE: Transfer Switch Maintainence

Yup, part of the annual inspection.

RE: Ford E-450 6.0 Turbo Diesel Overheating

If hot day, long steep grade, consider disconnecting the toad and driving it separately (assuming you have someone else with you). I was going to say, gear down and slow down, but 25 is already pretty slow. 3/4 or so of allowable max RPM and less than full throttle gives best cooling.

RE: steering problem

I agree, start by changing hydraulic fluid and filter(s). Any metal in the fluid? Be sure to use the fluid speced by your chassis maker. Some use ATF, some hydraulic fluid, some motor oil. Not a matter of better or worse, just what your system was designed to use.

RE: Serpentine Belt for Cummins ISB 6.7L?

Register at this link Then put your VIN in and get info on parts. Did this......didn't show me the specific belt. I guess when you say VIN, you mean the engine......because the coach VIN yielded no results? For the Cummins site, you need your engine serial number.

RE: Anyone knows the part part Number for Fuel Filter

Your chassis maker is the one who speced and installed the fuel filter(s). Yes, they even decide whether to use one or two. The engine manufacturer just tells them to what micron rating the fuel must be filtered. Yes, they can use a filter from your engine manufacturer, or they could use something else (like one by Racor). So, check with them with your VIN for the correct information.

RE: Trying to clean my rear radiator

No secret methods here. It IS a pain to work around those fan blades. Regular garden nozzle an patience along with Simple Green Extreme is what it takes. Oh, and wear old clothes-- you WILL get dirty. And, if you do have the Caterpillar 3126, make sure that the V belt driving the water pump is not loose.

RE: Cat 300 running hot on gradea

seeing as the rad etc is clean the only thing I can think of is the fan clutch is weak and slipping ? Two points: Most rear radiator coaches have direct drive fans, not clutched fans. Yes, there are a few, particularly newer ones that are clutched. While cleaning the radiator is important, it is critical to understand the the vast majority of the blockage will be on the FRONT (toward front of coach) of the CAC (Charge Air Cooler) which can only be accessed from the front (through the bedroom or closet).

RE: Cat 300 running hot on gradea

Bob, Have you replaced the thermostat(s)? After 12 years, may not be opening all the way. BTW, Caterpillar calls them "regulators". Pretty easy to replace from above after draining a gallon or two of coolant.

RE: 5.5 Onan, sounds like a machine gun when I hit the starter.

Pull your car/toad up next to the generator. Carefully attach jumper cables to the positive lug coming in from the coach battery and a clean piece of metal on the generator. Symptoms change???

RE: shout out to Snider Fleet Solutions

A very common and well-discussed MAJOR safety issue with your chassis: Applies to the following Monaco Corporation products: Monaco Knight 2002 - 2004 Monaco Cayman 2002 - 2009 Holiday Rambler Ambassador 2002 - 2004 Holiday Rambler Neptune 2002 - 2009 Safari Cheetah 2002 - 2007 Safari Simba RD All Years Safari Zanzibar/Sahara 2002 -2005 Beaver Baron All Years http://community.fmca.com/topic/569-important-safety-issue-monaco-hr-safari-chassis/

RE: New 06' Executive Owners... Ride Home

Actually, I would go one step further. I would NOT adjust tag pressure/weight except with scales as a tool. I know we did "all wheel position weighting" at one of the Diesel RV Club Rallies as the rally gift. 100% of the tag axle coaches "failed" and had to be adjusted. One took three go arounds. The adjustment IS sensitive. Ideally, the same percent of GAWR will be on each axle when you are finished. But allowing no axle to go over its rating. It can make a real difference, not only is safety (no axle or tires overloaded) but also in handling and ride.

RE: Water pump chattering

First question: Does your plumbing system have an ACCUMULATOR in it? If this is a new issue and you have an accumulator, check the accumulator.
