RE: Ford v10 or gm 8.1 liter class A

For those with the V-10, how is it pulling a toad over a grade? My dentist (an avid fisherman and Rver, somewhere on this forum) highly urged me to stay away from the V-10 and go diesel. His complaint was the pulling power over a grade. He had his hand in my mouth and was drilling a tooth at the time so I was certain to agree with him. How is your V-10 over a grade? I am sure it has to do with your rigs weight, etc., but on the average, how is it? For whatever it's worth, in 2002 or 03 towing a 1990 Ford Aerostar van with our 2000 v10 powered coach we had occasion or perhaps I should say made a BIG mistake taking alternate US 14A from Lovell to Dayton WY. Barely made it over the grade in 1st gear, but we made it. Later I discovered it was a 10% grade. Now I know why we didn't see any 18 wheelers on that highway. Since that event, had the Banks system installed along with the 5 Star Tune and stay away from any grades over 8%:B

RE: Norcold issue once again

Our Norcold 1200LRIM lasted for 12 years, when it died, replaced the cooling unit with one of those Amish built units and so far it's working great, still using the original circuit board.

RE: Troubleshooting Air Horns (UPDATE)

You need to check to see if voltage is getting to the solenoid air valve, if it isn't you have an open somewhere in the circuit. If you do have voltage, then most likely the solenoid valve is faulty, or sometimes the inside valve assembly gets corroded from moisture in the system. Had a problem with mine and I disassembled the valve, cleaned it out, it then worked. Good luck and let us know the fix..

RE: Frivolous question but I can't find the answer......

The bus is higher in the pecking order of their other models, but one step below the Zephyr model which is presently their top of the line. The Phaeton is one step below the Bus and is a very nice coach. Here's a link to the Tiffin website: http://tiffinmotorhomes.com/

RE: Rambler Admiral vs Coachmen Mirada -- Advice

Logic would dictate that a 2011 model would have a higher value than a 2006, kind of no brainer wouldn't you say...:h Best regards and good luck with your choice....:)

RE: Oil Change V10 Newmar

Re: Only main problem I had was the chassis cross-member that is directly beneath the drain plug that makes it difficult to get an oil catch pan successfully beneath the oil pan without it deflecting the discharging oil and spattering all over the concrete driveway before realizing that it is making an absolute MESS!! Sorry, I forgot I had said don't ask... LOL! I found that by using my leveling jacks if I raise the coach slightly I can fit the oil catch container (flat type) between the axle & oil pan. Sees to work pretty good.

RE: How long are (have) you keeping your MH in retirement

Wife & I retired in mid 1993. Bought our 1st coach in Feb 1995 then traded up to our present 2000 coach in Jan 2000 which we still have.

RE: Alternator not charging house batteries

Possible isolator solenoid malfunctioning or faulty circuit board in your battery control center. When charging voltage from either alternator or converter reaches 13.5+ volts, isolator solenoid should engage charging both house & chassis batteries. Good luck with resolving your problem and do let us know the fix...

RE: Wanting to hear from Class A gas powered owners

Ok, Re: How powerful is the V10? Does it struggle towing a car? What size cars are you towing behind it? What kind of MPG should i expect with a car in tow? Our 2000 37'8" coach weighing in at 21,230lbs loaded for travel is powered by the 310hp 425 lb ft torque. We tow a 2003 Suzki XL7 weighing 3,600lbs. Normally it doesn't struggle towing our vehicle, of course when navigating 6 & 7% mountain grades speed drops to 45-50mph so I guess you call that struggling somewhat. Our mpg average over the 14 years we've owned our coach has been around 7mpg. 2006 & later model v10 have more power, i.e., 362hp & 457 lb ft torque so navigating grades should be less of a struggle while towing a vehicle. In all cases fuel mileage depends much on power to weight ratio, headwinds & individual driving habits. We travel 5-6,000 miles per year and now with 89,000 miles on our coach we've been extremely satisfied with the performance and dependability of the v10. Good luck with your choice of a coach.

RE: synthetic oil

Pg. 94 in our 2000 f53 Owner's manual specifies Motorcraft SAE 5W-30 Super Premium Motor Oil. I followed their specs then after logging 10,000 miles on our coach I switched to Mobil 1 full synthetic which I continue to use. Here's a link to a site that may shed a bit more light on the use of 5W-20 vs. 5W-30 discussion. http://www.ehow.com/facts_7661702_5w20-specifications-ford-general-motors.html
