RE: onan marquis 7000 generator /no start

Richard, when I used to have air-cooled motorcycles I could come to stop on the highway and put my hand on the fins, the only time they ever got very hot was idling in traffic, no cooling fan The water cooled bikes now get extremely hot all the time.

RE: Vacation Home Buying Fizzling. RV's too?

Hope just a recession and not a depression, every country in the world has massive debt and with never before low interest rates individuals have borrowed well beyond what they can ever repay.

The aluminum roof on my 86 looks like new, just keep joints sealed.

RE: onan marquis 7000 generator /no start

Air cooled engines run hotter than water cooled engines. Thus the manufacture does not recommend multi viscosity oils. BUT! that ruling was for non-synthetic oil. Standard oils loose their multi viscosity capacity when run to hot and thin out. So when running multi viscosity oils in air cooled engines, always use synthetic oil. I have the same generator as you and have used 10W-30 synthetic for 22 years with no problems. Richard Regular multi viscosity oil is fine in an air cooled motor, air cooled motors do not have a thermostat to make them run as hot as water cooled motors. There are no air cooled car or motorcycle engines anymore because they cannot get them to run hot enough for modern fuel injection pollution control systems.

Main jet is plugged, it screws into the bottom of the fuel bowl, usually just unscrew clean and replace.

RE: Water hose stuck on side of trailer..

Aluminum will always corrode when attached to most other metals, just like zinc.

RE: Expert Fuel Pump Opinions Needed!

My E350 based motorhome has a lift pump in the tank and a fuel pump mounted on the frame just behind the front wheel. If yours the same check electrical connection. That's very interesting. I replaced the fuel filter just behind/below the driver's seat. Didn't see a pump. What year is yours? I assume you mean the left front wheel? I'm not seeing that set-up for a 2002. Mine is a 1986 , the gas supply is set up like fuel injection even though it has a carburetor, there is a pressure relief valve near the carburetor so constant flow through return to tank. The pump is mounted on the frame below drivers seat. I read somewhere it was done that way because in a motorhome the gas tank is farther back, also with the constant flow through the lines less chance of vapor lock.

RE: Toilet broke loose!

https://i.imgur.com/r6x7q9rl.jpg The lessons one learns when dealing with this stuff! No wonder plumbers make $75 an hour. The distance between center of the slots where the bolts will go is 1/4 inch more than the center of the holes on the toilet. If I install this way the two bolts will lean in toward the toilet bowl and will present a weak point in the plastic. My only choice at this point appears to be to enlarge the holes on the toilet to by 1/8 inch to the outside. Question, did you try mounting the toilet to see how the bolts come through, this stuff is all standard, would be strange to find a toilet that is made wrong.there is usually quite a bit of play with the bolts, not a precise fit.

RE: Toilet broke loose!

If you are going to use a wax gasket in your home make sure you get the better one with the plastic funnel built in, a regular wax gasket will leak if your toilet has even a tiny amount of movement, a foam gasket is preferred for any toilet install, they come in a couple of thicknesses. Replaced lots of leaking wax gaskets in homes.

RE: awning rolling up, arms and supports not aligned

Could the awning have moved on the roller so that it's closer to one end. I would think if the tension is much higher on one spring than the other it could cause your problem.

RE: Batteries won't hold charge - need help

Just remove the (charging) wire from the house battery, you should be able to charge the vehicle battery and start it. You can hook your charger up to vehicle ground and the disconnected house battery charging wire to charge house battery. Then one of the batteries will discharge quickly pointing you to the problem.

RE: Batteries won't hold charge - need help

The isolator is the only place where the house battery is connected to the vehicle battery, should be 3 wires/connections, disconnect the wire from the house battery. There will be a wire from the alternator, center connection on mine and a wire going directly to vehicle battery. If you disconnect house connection at least both batteries will not drain. Do you have a battery charger or jumper cables, odds are the problem is on the house side.

RE: Batteries won't hold charge - need help

It's easy to replace the isolator, if the both batteries are dead that quick something is drawing power all the time. Check and make sure nothing is on. Do you have a volt meter? If you do you can measure how many amps are being drawn from each battery, leave wires disconnected and isolated at the isolator so you can check each battery separately. You have something on, likely on the house side.
