RE: 2006 Newmar essex

Would it be safe to assume you have automatic generator start? If so my guess would be you somehow unplugged the battery sensor and/or it's full of moisture.

Excellent point.

RE: Reseal roof on class A

Would it make sense to just Eternabond the entire thing instead?

RE: New motor home blues…

First oil change was supposed to be at 50 hours. Yes the service tech told me they use oil. Something else they failed to mention at orientation. Sounds like it's only using what it's supposed to.

RE: New motor home blues…

^^^ Check the generator owners manual. I'd guess the first oil change may have been overdue at 104 hours. I just bought a new generator for camp, the first service is due at 25 hours - after that the interval gets longer.

RE: Any 80mph PLUS - class Aers still on here ?

We just did a 2,200+ mile trip towing our Explorer. The max tow speed for the Explorer is 65 MPH - I tried my very best not to exceed that. It was slower than my normal travel speed but I did a REALLY good job keeping it under 65. There was an adjustment period for me but I just set the cruise and parked it in the right lane. By the time the trip was over I was ok traveling at the slower pace. Yeah, I'm getting old. :B

RE: Anyone else run out of diesel ?

Just need to reprime the system. On our MH it's a series of turning on the key without attempting to actually start it. On one of my farm tractors there is an actual manual priming pump on the filter housing. As always, check your manual, there is always a way.

Got it - thank you!

RE: PSA - cracked wheel on 2012 F53

While doing a lugnut torque check I discovered a crack in the hub-plate of a rear wheel. The wheel has been replaced and the rest of my wheels checked for cracks. I filed a report with the NHTSA. Glad I didn't find it the hard way as the wheel failed! https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/AM-JKLVpm4pBZ6qwZD16IbKm3hMsIcOMK-GgOmXuciDcuLZ21_0q7if_JZyBOXsYy8GUg0HXPKwzn-mOHpu72QBUErQ8kOIM4tGru4Q9Xn3cMKFpfJHd3gBrYOgx7UHU4xOjw9mg4vm6RTiWVEjI4HwevuPBpA=w2743-h1543-no?authuser=0 height=768 width=1024 Any chance you could repost the picture, I can get it to open. Thank you.

RE: old diesel fuel in tank

Good to hear. We just returned from a 2,200+ mile trip, topped off 2 miles from the house and put it away for the season. Unless something changes it won't come out of the garage for around 7 months. I have zero concern about the diesel going bad.

RE: Need Tires

I buy any tire other than a Michelin, but that's just me. Currently we're riding on Bridgestones.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

100 pounds - European currency. That joke works too!

RE: Wiring Short only under shore power

Have you tried a different shore power source? It could be bad power coming in that shows up at the light.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Ro_sie, That's an old joke - the guys wife left him! Fultimin, If you needed to lose the weight great, hopefully you can keep it off. If you didn't get to work putting it back on. When I had my open heart I lost a bunch, then it went back on. Since I retired I've lost some again and I'm right about where I should be.

RE: Tires - The 10 Year Rule

^^^ We went 9 years on our last set, but our MH is garage kept. The tires never see the sun unless we're using it, and there is a vapor barrier under the concrete it's parked on.

RE: Tires: Date Code approaching 10 yrs. Toyo or Yokohama?

Good deal - only point I would add is there are new beads out now that don't absorb moisture, so clumping isn't an issue with those. As to them causing flats, I've never heard of that one, but maybe? That said, there certainly is nothing wrong with old school balancing!
Bruce Brown 09/23/21 08:59pm Class A Motorhomes
RE: Tires: Date Code approaching 10 yrs. Toyo or Yokohama?

On those 2 choices, I'd say flip a coin. That said, we had RY103s on our last MH (replaced Michelins, one which blew in the garage, while parked), they were a great tire - I'd buy them again.

RE: Onan’s New Inverter Based Generators - Mike Mas

Thanks for the replies - Regretfully instead of this thread being friendly and educational so we can all learn from each other to further enjoy our RV’s, a few users have instead chosen two attack it and my credentials. Mike, This one took a turn only when YOU refused to listen and learn from many others who tried to correct your erroneous information. Instead of acknowledging someone else may actually know what they were talking about you decided to belittle them instead. Those are the "credentials" we all witnessed. Nothing more, nothing less - you have reaped what you have sown. This is 100% on you. But nice try at a deflection - didn't work.

RE: Onan’s New Inverter Based Generators - Mike Mas

Just can't admit you were wrong, can you - even when all your quotes were highlighted. Yes, the generators have been updated. More importantly, the older models were indeed inverter type generators - which you continued to insist wasn't true and you continue to belittle those who point that out. Your last post is just another example. Yes, my Onan generator IS an inverter type generator. Our old Generac (in our '03) was not. Yes, I do know the difference. BTW, we also ran an inverter generator in our off the grid camp. Seriously, put the shovel down, you cannot dig your way out of the hole you're in.
