RE: ALLISON 2000mh TRANNY PROBLEM, HELP!!!

For those more interested in Allison problems than spell checkers, here is what the problem was. This "Allison" problem was actually a comedy of errors not directly related to the Allison. Here goes! Took to W.W. Williams in Atlanta GA., and had computer diagnostics run, they determined that codes and initial testing indicated the VP44 injector pump was defective and the lift pump was inoperative, and data link to transmission was not communicating. Apparently when the lift pump dies the V44 will continue to supply the engine by providing a suction on the the fuel line. In doing so it literally destroys itself in the process. If I had replaced the lift pump ($60) when the first code was thrown, I probably would have saved the V44 pump ($2500-4000). I have since installed a electric fuel pressure gauge on the output side of the fuel filter to warn me if lift pump fails. I also replaced cheap OEM lift pump with a Rapter after market lift pump. ($280) The Rapter maintains 15 PSI/ 10psi WOT to injector pump which relies on fuel for lubrication. During the install of the V44 the tech pulled loose the data link cable which was then burned on the manifold, and the same tech apparently used a water hose to clean the pump area after install. Water got into a terminal resister on the end of the data link cable causing the trans light code.

RE: Weather Pro 9100 too high???

The gas struts for 'standard' hardware is 28-3/4" The gas struts for 'basement' hardware is 24-1/4" (4-1/2" shorter) Go back to 'dealer' and have them install CORRECT hardware. Thanks Old Bisqcuit, you answered my question, but I have to eat it because I told them to put "standard hardware" not knowing they were different heights. I can adjust it to be usable. In the future I will consider replacing the gas pistons with the shorter ones.

Weather Pro 9100 too high???

I recently damaged the lower hardware on my Winnebago Journey 02', previously installed was a 9100 "basement" hardware. The new hardware installed by a local rv dealer was "standard" hardware. The height of the roller tube when extended is now significantly higher from the ground. The awning sticks out almost horizontal, and would not shed any water and i am afraid it would collapse in the rain. Is the design of the "standard" vs "basement" different in regard to height. Is there any way i can lower the height of the roller tube to the ground without different hardware? When the adjustment knob is secured in the lowest position it is still too high. Any help you can provide would be appreciated.

RE: HWH 325 solenoid fuse blew

OP here. I checked the resistance in the coil and it is bad. I am just looking for a place to buy the coil alone. HWH sells the coil and stem in one piece and is very pricey. There are many types where I use to work but not one for this stem. I recently had a fuse blow and burn up the inline fuse housing at the pump. Quite accidentally I saw a flash at the motor terminal when current applied. The terminal was extermly hot, and more importantly loose and corroded. This caused heat, which caused resistance and blew the fuse. Cleaned to terminal at the motor, replaced the fuse with circuit breaker and solved the problem.

Winny Journey 02 HWH leveler Question

My Journey 32', 02 recently had some transmission work done and the cross bracket linking HWH cylinder mount tubes was removed to allow access to the Allison pan under which it is mounted. Can't seem to get the bracket back on as it appears the holes don't line up. Questions; 1. The tube mounts seem to be welded to the chassis, how could they move? 2. What is this bracket for, is it necessary and why? Any information would be appreciated, I have corresponded with both Winnebago and HWH to no avail.

RE: Lifespan of brakes on large motorhome

No comparison between gasser with hydraulic brakes and air braked pusher. At 82K my brake pads like almost new. In my experience you should expect to get in excess of 250K miles, the only way you would need a brake job earlier is if a slack-adjuster failed and tightened too much. Not a likely scenario on a well maintained coach if the chassis is greased as required.
