RE: I was pleasantly surprised

One thing that always comes with low gas prices are the greedy politicians that see an opportunity to increase taxes. I just read where New Jersey is going to approve a 23 cent a gallon INCREASE in their fuel tax. Expect more States to do the same if the fuel prices stay low. Of course lower fuel prices usually mean that people travel more and buy more fuel, which puts more tax money in the coffers. Apparently that is NEVER enough for some politicians.

RE: engine on reduced power

This happens to my 8.1 about ONCE a year, but not on any particular schedule. Since my OBDII shows no problems I just chalk it up as an ECM fluke. What I have found out that works to reset mine is to go out and throw the chassis battery disconnect switch for a few seconds. Turn it back on and everything was always fine after that. I wouldn't worry too much about it. After 90,000+ miles, my engine is still running fine and I can put up with an occasional blip.

RE: Using hydraulic bottle jacks for leveling

Harbor Freight will probably have the least expensive bottle jacks. Your hydraulic jacks may be a simple fix. If you throw the switch and you hear nothing, it is probably electrical, and could be as simple as a blown fuse. If you hear the pump running and nothing happens, then it may be a switching valve and a little more complicated, but still not that difficult to trace and fix.

RE: Shore power and no DC lights - HELP

Glad it is fixed. Enjoy the rest of your trip. :B

RE: Shore power and no DC lights - HELP

Some coaches have a switch near the door sometimes called a salesman's switch that turns off all 12 volt DC power. There is a relay that this switch controls and that relay may be bad, or the switch just needs to be thrown. On my Monaco it is a momentary switch and I have to hold it for a few seconds.

RE: Welding Precautions

Disconnect the coach from shore power. Keep the ground connection for the welder as CLOSE as possible to the area to be welded. Make sure that there are no wiring harnesses, fuel lines, propane lines, air lines, near the area to be welded. Some people may recommend disconnecting the batteries, or ECM/TCM but I never found that necessary on any of my coaches.

RE: Winegard to Jack King

My Jack was an exact replacement with the existing amplifier on my older Winegard providing the power to the Jack. It has worked great for several years now.

Whatever insulation product you use, just make sure that it's temperature rating exceeds the temperatures you expect it to encounter in the engine compartment. A fire there is not a good idea.

RE: Need Some Guidance - Replace/Upgrade Generator

Not sure what type of generator you have but some of those old Onan RV generators are built stronger, operate at a lower RPM and, in a lot of ways, are just better than the newer units. If it ain't broken, don't fix it.

RE: Storag

If you are concerned, flush the tanks out with a Clorox solution BEFORE your next trip. Don't let the Clorox solution sit in your tanks over an extended period of time. The Clorox may attack seals and gaskets if left to sit for too long.

RE: Help needed ASAP for my Damon Challanger

I believe the noise you are hearing is the Auto Park Brake engaging or disengaging from the brake drum on the end of your transmission. There is a way to manually disconnect the Auto Park Brake but once that is done, your coach will roll on a slopped surface unless you use wheel chocks. This can create a dangerous situation.

RE: Dash air vs generator

In warm weather, we ALWAYS start the generator and run the rooftop AC to cool the ENTIRE coach before we park for the day. It makes no sense to be uncomfortable after we have parked for the night waiting for the coach to cool off.

RE: 110 hookup only ???

On a single 120 volt outlet I have been able to run one AC as well as the TV and lights. I switch off the AC when using the microwave. The WH is on propane as is the refrigerator. It just requires energy management and watching the meter to see how many amps you are drawing. X-2, I've done this before Brian, but you don't want to do this in extreme heat! If you do this and do not have an PI EMS that shuts down current at 104v, I suggest you get a Kill-A-Watt and plug it in. Of course you will want to check occasionally. If current drops to 104V, turn off the A/C. If you let the A/C run at 104 or below, you will start incurring heat damage and shorten the life. I do have the PI EMS but I believes it shuts down the power when it drops to 108 volts. If a 120 volt outlet is wired properly, you should be able to draw the maximum amount of amps without any significant voltage drop, just like any outlet in your home. If you have to run a long extension cord to the 120 volt outlet, then you may have a voltage drop. Just using your large 50 amp RV cord, and the adapters, hooked up to a properly wired 120 volt outlet, should be fine without a significant voltage drop altho it is not a bad idea to monitor it to insure that it was wired with the correct gauge wire.

RE: 110 hookup only ???

Have never done this before. I'm hooking up were there's only 110 service available. What do I do?? Will that keep the batteries charged, assuming I only run the TV etc. No Air Conditioners, I know. Would I plug into the 110 and then turn the invertor on and run off that or ?? Thanks Even though the 50 & 30 amp RV plugs look like 220V plugs, they are actually 110V. If you have a 30 Amp cord/RV you can buy a 30A to 15A adapter just about anywhere. They're less than $10 and Wally World almost always has them in stock in the stores. 15A to 30A adapter If you have a 50A RV/cord, you can buy one of these which I have done. 50A cord adapter. It does a great job for keeping the batteries charged, running the frig, providing 110V to RV outlets, and running one A/C unit. (I have 20A circuits in my garage.) They're a little pricey, but very few people make them and even fewer stock them. Actually I have built almost one of every type of adapter over the last couple of years just to make sure I have whatever I will need. Doug Actually a 50 amp RV plug is bringing in 220 volts to the main breaker in your RV. On some RV's, 220 volts is used on the drier. At your main panel in your RV, the 220 power is split in to the 120 volt circuits for the use in your coach.

RE: check engine light

You may try disconnecting the battery for a little while to let the ECM reset. This may correct the problem.

RE: Dealer wrecked my motorhome

What kind of a time frame did they give you for repairs?? Don't let them "slow walk" in through their service department so that it takes months to repair. They might be tempted to put paying customers ahead of your coach repairs.
