RE: Was I Wrong? (Long Story)

My opinion is dogs should be banned from ALL campgrounds. Reason is situations that develop such as stated here. http://popbytes.com/img/UGLIEST-DOG-IN-BRITAIN-01.jpg

RE: frige level

If you're level enough to sleep, you're level enough for your refrigerator.

RE: Check Antenna Light

The "check antenna" light/alarm is nothing more than a timer. Even if your antenna has been DOWN for a year it'll still alarm when starting your coach. It'll go off in ~15 seconds. The light/alarm controls NOTHING. -Tom

RE: Workhorse w22 engine coolant temperature gauge

@ Tom N: Cluster Diagnostics works for other gauges but temperature gauge does not move for 0, 50, 100% tests. My 2005 Suncruiser's Actia dash tests the temperature gauge. If you diagnostics test does not move your temp gauge, you have no activity on J1850 data bus. Download the 2004 Workhorse chassis wiring schematic. http://www.scribd.com/doc/71716348/Chassis-Wiring-Diagram-W22-L18 >>>-----> Page 17. The wire to the engine coolant temp sensor is gray/yellow. -Tom http://www.irv2.com/attachments/photopost/data/500/temp_testsm.jpg

RE: Is there a GM Ignition Switch Recall for a W24 Workhorse?

The only thing on the W24 series Workhorse chassis made by GM is the engine. GM got out of the motor home chassis business back in 2002. This is exactly why the ignition switch is not the problem. The problem is the steering wheel interlock/shifter as I stated in my previous message. Gm's ignition switch problem relates to a heavy key chain shutting off the ignition. This problem started long after GM made their last motorhome. -Tom

RE: Is there a GM Ignition Switch Recall for a W24 Workhorse?

No. Some have a problem getting out of park. The safety interlock can be stubborn. Cause is a very heavy vehicle with 6-8000 lbs on the front end. If you have a problem shifting out of park, raise your front tires off the ground. This takes the binding pressure off the key/shifter interlock. Some drivers may be misinterpreting this problem as a faulty ignition switch. I've encountered this once or twice. -Tom

RE: Workhorse w22 engine coolant temperature gauge

You can test your temp gauge through the CLUSTER DIAGNOSTICS MENU TREE. The temp gauge will show 0% then 50% then 100% during the test. Coolant Temperature is read from the J1850 data bus. If the data bus is not active in the vehicle, the message center will display “No J1850 Activity”. More info in the 2002 Actia Dash Cluster Service Manual. -Tom, W3TLN

RE: Very Scary Tow Car Breakaway

The break away cable should never be attached to the hitch brackets. It should always be attached directly to the towed vehicle. The safety cables/chains should never be attached to the hitch brackets. They should always be attached directly to the towed vehicle. -Tom

RE: ? for the battery gurus...

This is what I would do. I would dump the acid into a plastic bucket hoping the washer would come out. If it did, I'd then dump the acid back into the battery. WEAR SAFETY GLASSES when working with batteries! -Tom, W3TLN

RE: Are large gas motor Rv's underpower?

Diesels are preferred at altitudes >10,000'. Because of the turbocharger/blower. -Tom, W3TLN

RE: '06 Itasca Suncruiser 35A Pros Cons

The 35A is a nice floorplan. The 2006 Itasca Suncruiser 35A comes standard on the Workhorse W22 22,000# chassis with the Allison 1000 transmission. An optional chassis was the Workhorse W24 24,000# chassis with the Allison 2100MH transmission. If at all possible look for this heavy 3 slide motorhome on the optional W24 chassis. You'll get an additional ~2000# of CCC. Plus, the larger capacity Allison 2100MH transmission. The W24 chassis was an ~$4600 MSRP option in 2006. Think 7 mpg average with either chassis. -Tom, W3TLN

RE: propane consumption

Note, your LP furnace air circulation system is designed to heat your basement compartments. A heater inside the living will not heat your compartments. -Tom, W3TLN

RE: Gas pusher

The EPA had nothing to do with the failure of the UFO. Poor sales caused the demise of the UFO chassis. A gas engine in the rear of a motorhome will not sell because of additional chassis features available on a diesel chassis. Such as, air brakes and air suspension. Plus the fact that even a low end diesel engine has twice the torque of the 8.1. -Tom
