RE: Motorhome Keyless Entry Opinions

I kinda built our own entry system for our motorhome using a Arduino, we can also use RFID wrist bans as well..https://i.imgur.com/qgWsZUQm.jpg

RE: Problem with Extended Warranty

even if the thermostat did fail, all it will do is over heat, and the rad cap should release any excess pressure before it blows the rad/ heater core, or hoses... have had many with stuck thermostats over the years, and never blown a rad due to it...

RE: Electrical Issue

I think this is a problem with the way the fuse box is wired in the RV's in that the white wire is grounded inside the fuse boxes, so if there is any current passing back through the ground, the gfi will trip as you now have both the white and the ground that can pass current rather than just the White.. Nope. The white neutrals are not connected to the grounds. This doesn't happen until it gets back to the campground main service. Pedestals and RV's neutral are floating. and not connected to the grounds. GFI's are special built to detect a 5 MA leak hot to neutral and neutral to ground. Remove your panel cover and have a look inside. They have separate ground bars. The grounds are bonded to the frame of the RV. yes look inside the back of the fuse box, you will find that the white wires are connected to a common bus bar that is attached to the metal case of the fuse box, and a separate buss bar for the grounds, that is also connected to the case too..

RE: Broken leaf springs - third time!

We just had a small travel trailer towed in to the shop today with a broken spring, from the looks of things the front fixed eye was over tightened and put undue strain on the spring.

RE: fresh water tank

Our motorhome only has one check valve on the city water in line into the main supply line, there is no check valve after or before the water pump. Ours relies on the check valves inside the water pump to stop the city water pump from back-feeding into the fresh water tank, I have installed a gate valve at the bottom of the fresh water tank though so that I can clean out the water pump pre-screen without dumping the fresh water tank or flooding the rv. I would check the line between the tank and the pump, and the pump and the main water line of the motorhome

RE: No Start

have someone try the starter, while you listen for the clicking noise under the hood to find the starter relay, some GM's the extra starter relay was an after thought and could be placed anywhere, found some mounted on the rad support as well..

RE: winterizing with compressed air

I also blow out the lines first to get rid of as much water as I can first and then pump in the pink stuff using the tank pump to pump in the antifreeze and never had any problem with broken lines. also out motorhome has all copper lines in it and most have no way to get to it something where to break or it would be a real PITA to get at. So for the cost of antifreeze its a real piece of mind not having to deal with leaks in the spring. Last year I had to break out the shelf under the bathroom sink to get to a water leak on the mother in laws motorhome, was no fun trying to work in such a confined space.

RE: Leaking differential Ford E450

getting the diff plug out, I just use the oxy-act torch and head up around the outside of the plug and hammer in a 1/2 inch extension into the drain plug and hit it with the impact gun. the fill plug is a regular pipe plug, get at most hardware stores.

RE: Tow Bar for 4 down

I have towed with a crude a frame , and what a pita to line up. but only needed it to tow and antique car a few times. I now have a Saturn that I bought with a blue ox tow system setup , and what a difference to get hooked up.. I also have an extra Demco tow bar, very similar to hooking it up too..

RE: Does anyone use a Toad-Charge?

most motorhomes already have a 7 pin connector installed in the back intended to charge a house trailer, just use the B+ from that to the toad through a 10amp circuit breaker on the toad

RE: Coleman lantern

still have a 2 burner coleman in the motorhome, as well as have two lanterns one was made in 1946, and still use it as well as the newer one.. cheeper to run than the propane canasters.. less waste, i also have a propane adapter to run a 20lb bottle in the naptha stove. The leather pump they sell separate, should be lubed with Neats Foot oil, good sporting goods shop for baseball mitts leather to keep it soft

RE: Complete reconstruction of a TT

We rebuilt our motorhome last winter, but used almost the same construction as the original, did some shopping around and replaced the aluminum siding with Filon I picked up near Windsor Ontario, was a lot of work though, there is a lot of TT around on Kijji as well toohttps://i.imgur.com/PauZR9am.jpg and after https://i.imgur.com/ND3vgnhm.jpg

RE: Rubber hoses Part Numbers

All the chassis parts can be ordered from ford, with just the last 8 digits of the vin if that helps, its just the addons that take a bit of work

RE: VIN plate location?

since you cant drive it, check with the local state trooper to have them do up the paperwork, and the vin check, remember thought like our 1977, you dont have a 17 character vin... it messes up there computer ours only 5 charactors. other thing is you have the Dodge Vin # as well as the rv builders serial #.. have the trooper do both...

RE: Question about rear Dining/Living/Bed

I would not get an RV where the primary bed has to be made at night and unmade before you can have breakfast. Ours has one bed above the cab, coach which will fold down for a Queen, and the kitchen table makes into a twin.. Other class C have a Queen size bed in the back as well as the Queen above the cab, but in most cases the bathroom is right beside the rear bed, just dont feed your guests beans the night before...https://i.imgur.com/8LsXrjMl.jpg Excuse the mess,, was in the middle of rebuilding the RV.

RE: Atwood stove/oven leaking??

lift the top of the stove off and check if you have a pilot light in the center of the stove , the stove control may be marked Pilot as well , it supplys propane to both the oven as well as the top burners, you have to light both pilots (oven and burners) or a small amount of propane will escape unburnt... and smell propane
