RE: 05 workhorse chassis 8.1 L engine serpentine belt length

Might I suggest replacing the engine cooling hoses too while you are at it?

RE: Onan 5000 won't start

Onan 5500 Manual
ArchHoagland 05/29/15 12:03am Class A Motorhomes

Just a tip for weather alerts, if you're going to be traveling in unfamiliar territory make sure to bring along good maps so you can translate the alerts. A few years back I was traveling through Wisconsin when the radio started broadcasting a tornado alert. It was great to get the alert, but they were giving directions of where the tornadoes were mostly by County and City location. So I'm driving down the road having no idea if I'm heading toward the tornadoes or away from them. Just by luck one of the broadcasts reported two tornadoes on the ground, 15 miles west of Dodgeville and they were heading east at 20 miles per hour. Just as that broadcast came out I was passing a sign that said Dodgeville City limits. So at least I knew they were 15 miles behind me and I was heading away from them at 60 and they were only doing 20. But if it weren't for that sign I wouldn't have had a clue where they were. My wife was getting a little worried since we aren't used to tornadoes, so I told her just to keep an eye on what all the people with Wisconsin plates on their cars are doing. When they start pulling over and jumping into ditches we'll do the same. But they all just went about their business as usual. Didn't seem worried about the tornadoes at all. I had the exact same thing happen in North Dakota one time. Horrendous storm hit and the warning gave the county and city but I didn't recognize the names. So I don't use a radio warning system at all.

RE: Had my first blowout this past weekend

Had the same thing happen. Ripped out all the wiring to the coach. I was 70 miles from the shop that had my new tires waiting for me that I had preordered the previous week. My insurance company , CSAA, covered the $12,000 rewire and towing expense. Have you checked with your insurance company?

RE: OH******Check Engine Light

If you feel there are no other problems, start the engine and hit the gas pedal 3-4 times, that should clear it On a GM engine you turn the key to the ON position, but DON'T START IT, and press the gas pedal to the floor 3 times in quick succession and that clears the "Change Oil" message. I'm not sure what engine the OP has.

RE: How Often do You Empty and Clean Your Bays

About once a year I empty them, clean them and then lube the hinges and the latches. This past year I also replaced several of the struts that hold them open...got tired of banging my head and using props.

RE: My Engine replacement odyssey - 1994 HR

You best get hopping, looks like you'll have to drive that coach out of a flood plain.

RE: Workhorse to Re-enter Class A Chassis Market

I wonder if they will use Bosch brakes and Actia Gauges.

RE: 05 W24 chassis inline fuel filter replancement

RE: Power Gear slide, Help!

Mine broke a tooth one time. The gear box was under our bed and enclosed in a plywood box cover type thingy. Fairly easy to get to once the plywood was removed.

RE: Dont try this at home

75 MPH is not a good speed for unexpected problems. Slow Down

RE: My dad is about to buy a motorhome, is it a good deal?

I just looked at the ad and it says it is no longer available. Case Closed.

RE: My dad is about to buy a motorhome, is it a good deal?

I would never EVER buy a used RV until I set foot inside it. I've seen too many RV's that looked good in the AD and were terrible when you went and looked at them. And I've seen too many horror stories on three RV forums that back up my position.

RE: Onan Generator in Class A possible overheat and overuse

I have a '06 Monarch with a Onan 5500 air cooled and had a problem similar to yours.The generator would just suddenly stop running when a/c units were on.1st time I was in 100 degree weather so thought just to hot , happened again in warm wheather but would start after cooling about 15 min.but would run for only10 mins. At home in drive way started checking things out serviced gen. Problem continued, took to a repair shop and after a few hours checking things out and calling Onan they found that the gens fuel pump was getting real hot and could actually burn you if touch. Replace fuel pump and have had no problem for over a year. Is that fuel pump visible from the opening so I could I shoot it with an IR gun?

RE: Bulges on sidewall of front tires

Does it look something like this........vertical 'dent' from rim to thread? http://www.tirerack.com/images/tires/tiretech/sidewall_indentation.jpg ARTICLE I would still make contact with Michelin. BUT 'WHY did Michelin replace the other NEW tires'? Thanks for the link. I've seen those undulations on radials for years and always wondered what it was.

RE: I am scared!

Better the devil you know than the devil you don't know. We've had our 2004 since it was new and I know everything about it, good and bad. I'll keep mine and do whatever repairs come along. Seems to me that is cheaper in the long run. Plus we really like our coach just the way it is. I don't think you'll notice that much difference going to a four foot shorter RV.

RE: Onan Generator in Class A possible overheat and overuse

Make sure your generator is getting enough air to vent...I've seen where that happens when it doesn't get enough air to vent..also check oil, as the slightest low oil could trigger it to run hotter and thus kick..also make sure your cover is on right and snapped shut correctly..incorrect venting there could trigger a heat sink and cause that to kick the sensor..even the sensor itself could be a bit faulty when on the cusp...but that's the last thing I would think..hopefully you are still under warranty.. The only opening I see is the entire bottom of the unit. The bay door is there but nothing closed off underneath. Is that the only place the air will come in from, or is there a tube I need to find that comes from the front somewhere? Mine only vents on the bottom too.
