RE: Difference between two Alliance fuel filters

Why would you use anything but FleetGaurd filters on an expensive engine? Actually both Fleetguard and Alliance are Cummins' products. My ISL came with Alliance primary fuel filter and Fleetguard secondary fuel filter and the oil filter. Not sure why the mixture. Ron

RE: BEWARE OF CAMPING WORLD IN LONDON, OH AND HEARTLAND RV

It's sad, really sad, when we haven't heard a single happy story since ownership began in Sept 2013. First post on RV Net slamming a dealer. Oh well, off to read some happy stories or someone needing help. Maybe they haven't had a happy story since ownership began.:( Sure sounds that way to me. Ron

RE: Overfilled Propane tank is what the firemen said...

Good to hear nothing bad happened! I thought legal (certified) bottles had an internal device to physically prevent overfilling? They do, but as the OP said, it was filled when it was 15 degrees cooler. The propane expanded with the added temps and the "internal device" release the gas to keep the tank from reaching capacity At least, this is how I understand how the work. Ron

RE: Difference between two Alliance fuel filters

Ok, got to thinking (I know, I know...bad idea) about this some more last night and one thing I forgot to mention is that the 50419 filter that I reference to....is in fact the original filter that Tiffin/Freightliner/Cummins put on the coach from the factory. Seems to me that I should follow the factory equipment rather than changing. Twomed provided a link to WIX filters and the Allied filter I mentioned above does indeed cross reference to the WIX WF10059 filter that is listed as a 3 micron. However, the NAPA cross reference filter is a 9 micron filter. So which cross reference is the exact duplicate of the ABP/N122-R50419 Allied filter? This is making my brain hurt.

RE: Noisy reciever

The hitch that I put in my receiver is noisy. It fits in, but it is loose and when a lighter trailer is hooked up, I hear rattling on the bumps. Is this normal? Is there anything can do about it? Everybody seems to be focused on the hitch...maybe it just too small of a ball. Most TT require the 2 5/16" ball and maybe, just maybe the OP is using a 2" ball and a 2 5/16" cup. Food for thought.

RE: Looking To Get Roadside Coverage

whether it is Coach-net, Good Sam, and most of the insurance companies....they pretty much all use the same service companies. So the basic difference is the person you talk to and how experienced and willing to help he/she is. I think you'll eventually find that you will receive good and bad service from whichever company you use. Pick one. Ron

RE: Difference between two Alliance fuel filters

I have two filters, the primary is the one with the water separator. I highly respect your advice/opinions....so I guess I'll go back to NAPA and get the 9 micron filter. thanks Ron

RE: Difference between two Alliance fuel filters

Thx... actually I have two fuel filters and yes I have the plastic bowl that I can use on the new filter. The micron size is what I was worried about...and I see what you mean about the NAPA cross referencing to both, as I originally went to NAPA and asked for the 19 filter and he cross referenced it to a NAPA filter which in turn crossed to the 18 filter. However..... I'm very leery about going from a 3 micron to a 9 micron. That just doesn't sound like something I should do. I think I'll hold out for the 19 filter.... thanks again...really appreciate it. Ron

Difference between two Alliance fuel filters

Currently, my ISL 400 has an Alliance N122-R50419 fuel/water separator fuel filter and I'm having problems locating one locally. However I have found a N122-R50418 (one digit difference) and it looks identical. Does anyone know if these two are interchangeable?:? thx Ron

RE: Charged for miscellaneous shop supplies

And finally we get the "results" from a resolution to a problem. Typically, GS requests a private message and we NEVER hear the results. Good to see that maybe they are changing their procedures...... or maybe this is just a one time deal. We'll see. Ron

RE: Good Sam Vehicle Insurance Plan

We had Good Sam insurance (first with GMAC and then Nat Gen) for quite a few years with first our trailer and then with our motor home. Rates were good and had a windshield replace with no problem and no increase in rates. However, a couple of years ago, I got a ticket in Oregon for running a red light in our toad; and I might add, the first ticket I'd received in over 20 years. My next insurance bill was almost triple of what I was previously paying....I repeat.... almost triple! Searched around and got quotes from a half dozen other companies and finally went with Geico for actually less than what I was paying Nat Gen prior to the ticket. FWIW...my vehicles included two Toyota pickups, our toad, my wife's Avalon (now Lexus) and our motor home. Draw your own conclusions. Ron Youngone...did you wish to add something to this? Curious as to why you just copied my reply without saying anything.:h Ron

RE: towed vehicle choce

Ours is the GMC Terrain which, except for the body style, is identical. We bought it new in 2010 and now have about 90K miles on it with about 20k being towed. Absolutely probably free in these past six years. Car still looks brand new and I have only change the tires and battery. Typically, I get overall mileage of about 25 with 33 - 35 on the highway (4 cyl of course), and with 185hp has sufficient power to climb steepest hills or pass others at will. Ours is the top of the line (when it was new) and has all the bells and whistles. New ones have all the new electronic safety features that you will find on our 2015 Lexus. Great little care with plenty of room inside, very comfortable and quiet. I would assume the Equinox would be the same and get the same results. Highly recommend. Ron

RE: Tow Vehicle Problem

I'm assuming you are following the directions listed in your owners manual...correct? Supplemental braking devices that plug into your toad's cigarette lighter do draw a lot of amperage from the battery and in these cases, you really need to have a 12v line from the motor home's battery(s) to the toad's battery. Most motor homes have this wire going to the 7-pin connector, but may not be connected. Check the voltage on, I believe, pin 4. Good luck Ron ps... the "tow" vehicle is the vehicle "doing" the towing...not the one "being" towed. Hence the name "toad".

RE: Whistler BC

Can't speak of the route, but things to do in 3/4 of a day? That sure isn't near enough to make it worth your while. I for one, would at least walk the village and do a little shopping and maybe get a bite to eat at one of the great eateries. Or, I would take the Whistler lift to the top and then the lift over to Blackcomb and back. Ron

RE: Brakes on towed vehicle or not?

I wish we'd all just quit being armchair engineers and lawyers, and just be safe! Now there is the correct answer!

RE: Brakes on towed vehicle or not?

Here in NY trailers that weight more than 1000 lbs need breaks! So, exactly where should they be broken at? :h Sorry, couldn't resist. Ron

RE: Gray Water Drainage

Check you AAV under the sink. It may be stuck closed and not allowing air to go into the tank to replace the water that's going out. Ron
