RE: battery charging

Highly likely that the generator does NOT directly charge the batteries, but merely provides 120 VAC to your converter, charger or inverter/charger that will charge the same batteries as it would on shore power. Give us more details on what rig, generator and converter, charger or inverter/charger you have and we can be of more assistance.

RE: Electrical Problem - Converter?

Do you have a digital voltmeter--almost a necessity on an RV? If so, we can walk you through checking the shore power receptacle-- takes 3 minutes.

RE: 6 volt or 12 volt batteries??

If you need to find this out without access to your coach, call Coachman with your VIN. They should be able to look it up for you.

RE: Steering Box Slack Adjustment

Another option if a Sheppard box is to have it "blue-printed". That takes out the play. No first hand experience with this company, but several very knowledgeable RV suspension shops use them: http://www.redheadsteeringgears.com/

RE: nhe lpg generator 6.3kw, starts then dies

Let me ask it another way: Can you see the propane regulator or is it hidden IN the generator? If external, is it installed vertically or horizontally?

RE: How old is too old?

Never pay high book for anything on wheels. Start by offering below low book and work from there. While I don't disagree with the "work from there" I guess I have a different perspective. I do a lot of mechanical inspections on coaches. I would MUCH rather see someone pay high book for a well cared for, well maintained coach that think they got a bargain by paying a low price for a neglected (VERY common) or abused one. Certainly, this excludes those looking to buy cheap, make them "look right" and resell them. Said another way, if you are buying a coach to keep for awhile, get a good one unless you are very handy and have set aside a lot more $$ than you think it will take to bring one back to the kind of condition where you can trust and enjoy it.

RE: Toyo vs. Hankook tires

Sorry to bump a old topic but I have a issue with the new tires on my MH. I put 6 Hankook on when my Goodyears became too old . Since replacing the tires I get a vibration in the front . It seems to be coming from the right front. I don't have the receipt on me so I can't offer the size but its a 38 foot freightliner FRED chassis. Could it be that the tires were not balanced properly ? any advice is appreciated . thanks Patrick Could be imbalance, could be excessive run-out. I would check run-out first. If over .035", FIX IT. Even a well balanced "egg" will..... ya, roll like an egg. If run-out OK, then have it rebalanced-- best ON the vehicle. That way all rotating masses are in balance, not just tire and wheel.

RE: Charging Issue

Follow the large gauge wire from the alternator B+ terminal. It will very likely lead to a battery isolator. It could be a good-sized relay/solenoid, or could be a diode-based isolator. Let us know which you have and we can give you troubleshooting advice. There are also some easy work arounds if you need to get home before addressing the issue.

RE: Dessicant cartridge shelf life

In a word, YES. And, if the filter is protecting expensive or safety equipment, short answer is get a new/fresh one.

RE: nhe lpg generator 6.3kw, starts then dies

Is this a LIQUID LP generator (i.e. the propane regulator is built into the generator) or is it a VAPOR LP generator (i.e. the propane regulator is external to the generator)?

RE: TPMS gauge which ones are good

Yup, I have had Pressure Pro on the last three motorhomes and have had no problems. So Pressure Pro and TST would be the two I would look at.

RE: Steering Box Slack Adjustment

First question is what steering box do you have. THEN we may be able to supply the correct information. TRW and Sheppard are the two most common. I know that in the Sheppard boxes, the word "Sheppard" and the model number are clearly embossed on the box.

RE: Tire Pressure

BEST answer: With the coach loaded the way you travel (with full fuel), weigh each wheel position and use the heavier wheel position to go to your tire manufacturer's Inflation table to determine the correct MINIMUM PSI. Perhaps add 5-10 PSI to that minimum. Next best: Weight axles and go to the Inflation table. Add a little more for "fudge factor" to account for left/right imbalance. Next best: Go with the pressures on your GVWR plaque (probably near driver's area) which is correct PSI if each axle is loaded to its maximum GAWR. Worst (hopefully): What is on the sidewall of the tire.
