RE: Old School Wiring Gurus Please Step Inside (headlights)

Always tough to figure out electrical without being there but I will give it a chance........Use your voltmeter to find out what part of the electrical plugs get power when they are working correctly on your '64 Impala. Draw yourself a little diagram if you have to. The go to your motor home and with the headlights on low and high beams, see what wires you have to move, or jumper, to get the same voltages on the same pins as with the car. Make sure that you know what pins are grounds.

RE: Generator Maintenance

Every year or every 250 hours sounds about right.

RE: Color codes

There is much more to the paint than just matching the paint color. There are iridescence particals that are added as well as things to control the amount of flop which will affect the way the paint looks visually, so that it matches the other pained panels on your coach. really?/ never heard that before? I had two compartment doors redone The way the graphics went there was 3 colours involved;; the local body/paint shop matched them perfectly by the spectrum system I was very impressed cost me $600 cash to get them done Speak with a painter and he will know. I've painted everything from Classic cars to airplanes and large trucks and the paint mix for my Monaco coach calls for a medium iridescent and a FLOP Control of 1.7 on one color. On another color, there is a medium iridescent and a Flop control of 3.9. The internet is there to educate those that want to learn. FLOP CONTROL that very could be all I said was I had never heard of it and the painter was able to paint my 2 doors to a perfect match by ordinary means; your reference is if one wants a "metallic Flake" paint job all my MH just have the regular type base/clear coat colours as most all motor home do ; I guess Monaco just used high quality metallic base coat clear coat paint on their coaches, like most automobiles use the days. Unless you were there while your painter was mixing the paint, you would never know what was in the formula, especially if he bought the paint already mixed from the supplier. Then all he had to do was thin it and spray it.

RE: Color codes

Send an email to Barbara O'donnell at Industrial Finishes: b.odonnell@industrialfinishes.com She is the paint Guru for Monaco coaches. If you give her all of the info on your coach, She will send you the BASF paint formulas and if you tell her where you live, she will let you know places nearby that can mix the paint for you.

RE: Balancing tires on bent steel rims?

Install Centramatic balancers and your problems go away. Only replacement or repair will fix a bent rim. Balancing beads or the much more expensive Centramatics can smooth out the ride but still not correct the problem.

RE: cruise control intermittent than off along with horn

Hi, I added the model and make. thanks. For the welds, I remembered reading a recall stating that it was the back and i check yearly. I never checked the front. what you wrote would make sense. I have no rattle, noise or vibrations. it is a smooth ride. But i will check this out i guess that going up on a 8x8 piece of wood one side at a time would twist the frame enough to reveal any issue i will do this addition I just saw that w22 is for workhorse and that is a GM problem and not Ford. Ford would be OK but i will still chcmy rv With the chassis weld problems, it was the extra steel added to attach the front end of the chassis to the front cap. This was a problem on BOTH the WH and Ford chassis since this was done at the Monaco factory, and not on the chassis supplied by others.

RE: cruise control intermittent than off along with horn

Back in 2003-2005, Monaco had a few issues with welds on the W series chassis. I believe that your coach is on the W22 chassis and you need to crawl under the coach and check out the welds. This is NOT something that can be seen by bending over and looking under the coach. You have to crawl under and look up in front of the front wheels to check the steel and the welds that are used to hold the front cap on to the frame. There have been numerous reports of broken steel and ot failed welds which will cause the front end to become loose and kick off your cruise control on minor bumps. Some also experience windshield wiper problems, more rattles, and an overall looseness with the dash. This can also result in numerous electrical issues with loose connections, etc. You also want to check all welds as some have had the brace under the generator crack as well. The fix is NOT to just redo the welds. You have to add additional heavier steel, welded in place to replace the very light gauge steel box that was used by the factory. This is not a difficult repair and unless you do it yourself you can expect about a $1000-$1500 charge to have a welding shop fix things.

RE: framing dimensions

The framework is one thing to find. once you find it, this will only frame in two sides. You will have to install cross members to form the four sided box. Locating nearby 12 volt electric may be a challenge.

RE: Sturgis to Yellowstone

I've done both 14 and 16 in a gasser without issues. You won't break any speed records, but you'll make it. X2 and with our gasser, with a toad, we had no problems at all and the scenery is fantastic. The only problem that we did encounter was that once past the mountains we encountered a herd of free ranging sheep. They were all over the road and they seemed to care less that we wanted to drive on by and go to our destination. Traveling the West we had encountered free range cattle many times before and they usually are at the side of the road. Sheep just act oblivious of a vehicle and you really do have to go very slow until they eventually move and let you by. The roads were all well paved and it was a lot more scenic than driving just another Interstate or major highway.

RE: Motorhome builds

As far as I know, the steel cage on the front and rear of my Monaco coach is just to provide a stiffer frame to hang the fiberglass front and rear caps. The steel frame is not to be confused with a structural roll bar and would offer little protection in the event of a crash.

RE: 8.1 Power Loss

Things I would suggest checking would be dragging brakes, even if the brake recall was done. Dragging emergency brake. Clogged air filter because of water sucked in to the intake horn. Check air fuel ratio with a scan gauge and see if it is in the 14.6-14.7 range. Check fuel pressure to see if fuel pump is functioning correctly.

RE: Losing fresh water on right turns

If you have a gravity fill outlet, like my coach does, where you can pour water in to your tank without using the pressure hose fill in the wet compartment, all you have to do is just plug the overflow hose. The vent by the gravity fill is sufficient to vent the water tank and plugging the overflow hose will stop the water from siphoning out or flowing out on right turns. The gravity fill on my coach is behind a small door and has a screw on cap. When you fill your tank with the pressure water hose, when the tank is full the water will run out of the gravity fill port, which on my coach is right above the pressure fill valve. This has worked for me for over 5 years and now when I fill my water tank, it stays full.

RE: Sewer gas issue

For whatever reason the vent on your roof is capturing the outside air and forcing it down the pipe in to your RV. If you have anything on top of the PVC pipe, try taking it off and see if that fixes the problem. If it does, just get a standard vent cap. how could that be? the black tank only has one vent and thats the roof out to atmosphere; the only other is the toilet and the seal would have be shot(wont hold water) and surely a owner would know this and the seal would have to be incredible worn for it to actually escape enough through this seal to cause a problem from driving down the road He did say that he had a "fan like thing" installed on the roof vent and then the problem started. I said to remove the fan like thing and see if that corrects the problem. Sort of sounds like a common sense thing to do to fix the problem. If something is catching the wind while driving down the highway, it can cause a lot of positive pressure inside the black tank and could easily escape past a seal.

RE: Best way to transfer funds on private RV sale

The lien holder either has the title or is the ONLY one that can release the title to the seller to sign it over to you. Write a contract with the seller, explaining the exact final selling price than contact the lien holder to make arrangements to wire transfer the loan balance funds to the lien holder to release the title. After the title is released, give the seller his balance and then he will sign the title over to you. Basically a pretty simple process.

RE: Walmart parking

Okay, call me a nay sayer, but Wally World is for OVERNIGHT parking, not camping. It only takes a few to wreck it for the rest of us. Of course I suspect that these "campers" are not familiar with the etiquette or just don't care. Of course we should also consider that the owners of these vehicle DID check with Walmart management and were given permission to stay there overnight, for a week, or for a month. It is not fair to make assumptions on what is happening without knowing all of the facts. Just saying.........

RE: 1998 P30 Chevy 454 - Stalling at interstate speeds

The P30's did have ignition switch problem which could cause the engine to stall if contact is lost. This was usually a failure caused by excessive heat in the switch from the headlights and eventually the switch would fail to make ignition contact while running but be OK after it was reset. Just a thought.

RE: 1998 P30 Chevy 454 - Stalling at interstate speeds

Don't forget to check the fuel filter also.

RE: Transfer Switch Maintainence

If you are an old mechanic, you probably have a thin point file that you use to remove any burn residue from the contacts as well. Obviously, this is done when the vehicle is NOT plugged in to shore power or with the generator running.
