RE: Leak in hydraulic line for rear jack

Excellent. A LOT better than the $200 you were quoted.

RE: Intellipower Convert Question.

Per the discussion on your other thread, if the converter is plugged into an outlet in the coach, verify that you do have 120 VAC to the outlet. If hard wired, and you are safe working around 120 VAC, do the same-- verify that the converter is receiving power. The ATS is not really part of the equation as long as it is passing the shore power/generator power through.

RE: Leak in hydraulic line for rear jack

Think you may be missing a digit. Then price from HWH before making a decision.

RE: Transfer switch not making contact automatically.

"I've already wired The L1's together L2's together and the Neutrals together." Yes: L1 in to L1 out L2 in to L2 out Neutral to Neutral Ground to Ground If converter is not on, check the breaker powering it.

RE: Leak in hydraulic line for rear jack

Price on the whole hose is WAY out of line. Check with HWH for parts price. PN should be on both ends of the hose.

RE: transfer switch 50 amp

Yup, you have created your own problem. 30 amp has a SINGLE HOT. 50 has TWO HOTS. So, jump from the single hot in the outlet to the other outer straight. That does exactly the same thing as a 30 to 50 adapter.

RE: transfer switch 50 amp

Start by verifying that your adapter's female end (30 male to 50 female) DOES have 120 VAC between each outer straight and the center straight and center round. Zero center round to center straight. Let us know what you find.But I am not using any adapters, I am just plugging in with the heavy 50 amp power cord Sorry. The first sentence of your first post had me fooled: "just wondering if anyone has seen a problem coming from the transfer switch when on 30 amps..."

RE: Allison will not go in gear

Algae won't stop trans from shifting, but the things she's been unplugging and plugging back in could have changed the idle. If the coach is idling faster than spec, (should be around 700 rpm) the Allison will not shift into gear. Correct. If idle speed too high, the Allison shift pad will just blink. But, would do the same for either R or D.

RE: water pump

No, the pump will run (of course not pump any water) even with the tank empty. It will be much quieter and higher RPM with no water than with.

RE: chassis alternator not charging coach batteries

Follow the large-gauge wire from the alternator B+ terminal. It WILL lead to your isolator.

RE: Tire pressure....again

The camper mfg pressure would yield even weight distribution across the tread and the tire should wear out in an even fashion. Too much pressure for the load will cause the tire to wear in the center of the tread. I AGREE IF, REPEAT IF EACH AXLE IS LOADED TO ITS GAWR. THE PSI ON THE GVWR PLAQUE IS CORRECT PRESSURE ONLY IF THAT IS ACTUAL WEIGHT OF THE HEAVIER WHEEL POSITION ON THAT AXLE.

RE: chassis alternator not charging coach batteries

Tom, Very likely your "emergency start solenoid" is NOT, repeat NOT a constant duty solenoid. Suggest you determine whether you have a SOLENOID-BASED or DIODE-BASED battery isolator. Then we can give you diagnostic and "work around" help.

RE: Tire pressure (temperature) increase while driving

And, here I thought physics applied to everyone. Silly me.

RE: Tire pressure (temperature) increase while driving

WoodIsGood....I have the solution everyone has overlooked... You need to fill your tires with Nitrogen!!! As opposed to DRY air? WHY??

RE: My engine won't run

11178adm, Well said. I will add that fuel lines between the tank and lift pump, because they are on the SUCTION side of the system, can fail by leaking air IN, as fail by leaking fuel out.

RE: Buying tires in Florida

Yes, I have the Alcoa 6.75" rims 6-lug..1989 Grand Villa DD diesel pusher.What would you say is a good working size...I was also told 245/75r ..... K The 255/80R22.5 is closer to the same revolutions per mile and is what most with your coach and wheel size have gone with. The 245's will have the engine turning more RPM for the same speed.

RE: Buying tires in Florida

Check your rim size before considering the 275's. If you have 6.75" rims as I suspect you do, that will not work. 255/80R22.5 which is a Michelin size will work in place of the 9R. 265/75R22.5 may work. What 34' Foretravel do you have?

RE: Brake Issue

I have a 40' Beaver DP with air over hydraulic brakes and picking it up tomorrow after having all new front brake rotors, wheel seals, pads, calipers, brake fluid flush and bleed. New oil bath hubs and seals and new gear oil. The parts and labor is about $1700 for mine. Are you sure it is not hydraulic over hydraulic? That is what Safari used for many years.

RE: Brake Issue

Come on guys, we get enough mis-information without trying for it. Yes, the majority of DP's have oil bath front wheel bearings. And, yes if the inner wheel bearing seal leaks, it CAN soak the front brake components. Very easy to check visually if you are under the coach.
