RE: 2006 Sunova 12V ground problem.

Physically disconnect the dead house batteries. If you somehow have them connected through a merge or combine switch then the charged chassis batteries will behave with all the symptoms you describe.

RE: Used class a ?

Mine has 252k at the moment, and 7000 hrs on the gen. I have no hesitation about doing a loop of the country every year. Have the fluids analyzed on the oil, coolant, and transmission. Have a competent mechanic look it over. Be prepared to replace air bags, air conditioners, and appliances at that age. After all you would not buy a 20 yr old house and not expect to replace appliances and hvac equipment. The drivetrain is the most robust part of the motorhome. Look for signs of water ingress

RE: Air Bag issue

Yes i have actually done this. My coach weighs 53K, significantly more than the Forza. I lost an innner drive tire which took out an airbag and the height control valve. My rig sits on the tires if the air bag is not inflated so i could not be towed. I was on the side of I 40 and had to get the coach to a safe place.

RE: Air Bag issue

If it is indeed an airbag, you can raise the coach with a bottle jack, and make wood inserts to put into the suspension. The weight should go across the grain. Use treated lumber. Disconnect and plug the airline to the height control valve. If the coach has a tag, it will need support also. It will ride like a wagon, it will get you out of SD.

RE: Meter

Ivylog told you what to do. Instead you want to put a thermostat in it different from what Cummins provided or alter the fan setup different than what Spartan specified. I dont get it.

RE: SR19 from Sutton, WV to Beckley, WV

You will have enough pucker on the interstate in WV. No way I would drive a car that route just to avoid the tolls. I lived there for five years so my comments are not based on looking at a map. I on e thought i would take that scenic route in a Class B. In 15 miles I bailed and went back to the interstate

RE: Turbo goes out at 37,000 miles

It may be too late for forensics. The answer to your question could be narrowed down from generalities if some quick inspections of the failed part were done. Were any of the blades broken? Which side, exhaust or intake? Did the shaft break? Were the bearings scored? Was the a actuator mechanism jammed? Check your air filtration for holes.

RE: Existing air line for RV braking system

Make up an air gauge screwed to a male disconnect. Put it in the fitting. If it is a aux brake system line it will not have pressure. Now press the brakes and see if you register pressure. You should see anywhere crom 30 to 90 psi depending on how firm your helper presses the pedal. If you get pressure without pressing the brake pedal it is NOT an auxialliary brake line.

RE: Aquahot issues

Easy now. Pretty aggressive wording when all the facts may not be in evidence. I know Trainer, and I have worked with him. There is nothing Mickey Mouse about his work.

RE: Hydraulic leak on room slideout

Use portions of paper towel zip tied to fittings and the cylinder end secured with zip ties to locate slow drips
