RE: Anyone using Cosumer Cellular?

The wife is on Consumer Cellular. Great company to deal with. Over the years they have added or expanded features on her phone, with no additional fees. CC uses AT&T for its' back bone. Richard

RE: ? Heat & Air on Ford Chassis?

Does Ford motor provide enough heat/air for comfort or do you have to run the RV heat/air for comfort? Ford does NOT provide HVAC in class A motorhomes. All Ford provides is the compressor, condenser & receiver/dryer. The rest of the components are provided by the coach builders. Richard In some (not all) cases Ford also provides the dash mounted control panel and some of the related wiring/vacuum system for the chassis HVAC on the F53 Class A. Chum lee Can you elaborate on which cases that Ford provides the controls on an F53 chassis. How would Ford controls interface with Evans Tempcon or Denso HVAC systems? Inquiring minds want to know. Richard Hi. I have a 1999 Southwind F53. The HVAC controls (along with the other dash instruments) are supplied by Ford with the F53 stripped chassis package. I've worked on many Ford products over the years as well as working in a Ford (dealership) parts department so I am familiar with what the Ford parts "look" like as well as Fords part numbering system. Evans and Denso may buy their HVAC controls from the same manufacturer (I don't know) as Ford. As Doug has previously mentioned, various RV coach manufacturers throughout the years have used different HVAC systems so they may opt to use different dash controls so each application could vary. Suffice to say, if it looks like it came from a Ford automobile/truck, it probably was supplied by Ford. There are others out there. Delco for one was popular years ago. Sorry I cant be more specific to all applications, but if you look at the dash controls and find the part number, (usually embossed on the part) if it starts with a 4 digit prefix like "E9TZ" or a similar format with 4 digits, the first being a letter, the second being a number, the third being a letter, and the last usually being a "Z," usually its a Ford part. For the example E9TZ, the part number would mean that the part was originally designed for an E meaning 1980's decade, 9 meaning the year 1989, T meaning truck, and Z is usually an undifferentiated place holder. So a Ford typical part number would be the format WXYZ-77777-Z It's more likely that the coach builders AC supplier builds their system components to interface with Ford (and the coach builder) rather than the other way around since Ford builds the base chassis in the case of the F53. Generally, the manufacturer with the most money makes the rules regarding the components. But not always, . . . . and times change. Remember when computers were all IBM compatible? Nobody gives a cr*p about IBM in the personal computer market anymore. Chum lee You 1999 Southwind has Denso HVAC. All electric servo motor control, no vacuum. Ford's vacuum controls would not interface with denso's servo motors. At 2 minutes & 33 seconds into this video is a Southwind HVAC control, manufacture by Denso. Same as the controls in my 95 Bounder Richard

RE: What chassis battery cutoff switch do you like?

I see no one noticed you bad back days. With this relay you can just push a momentary rocker switch from inside your RV. Richard

RE: Can you hook two different kinds of generators together?

Inverter generators from different MFG, using different electronics to create the output power are not safe too connect together Stream driven or water driven hydro turbines are synced by brute force They bring them online by slowly applying load ( connecting to system thru inductive load) and using the back EMF to drive them into alignment aka synchronous spinning Something you cannot to with consumer grade ( inverter output ) portable generators I totally disagree with how you indicated power plants come on line. I was in a power plant, while taking an operating engineers coarse, when it came on line. They watched their frequency meter until it aligned with the grid and threw the switch and came on line. If the plant lags in frequency, the grid will help pull it along. Richard

RE: ROI Converting Fluorescents to LED

My 18" florescent lights were drawing 1 5/8 amps @ 13 volts. The replacement LEDs drew 5/8 amp @ 13 volts. And the lighting was so much brighter that I added remote dimmers. Richard

RE: Are CB radios still used or now antiquated?

I still have a CB in the ol Bounder. Keep it squelched down. Every once in awhile I'll hear something that may help me get in the best lane early. Or...........sometimes I'll try to annoy a trucker, just to break the boredom. IE I used to have a CDL until they found out my IQ was over 87. It's all in good fun. Richard

RE: Kiwkie step Model ? 1997 fleetwood bounder

I didn't look at the years. I'll have to remove those parts from my 95 Bounder, even though they work. Don't want the wrong year stuff on my coach. GRIN............ Richard

RE: New Ford F53 Chassis

Its the old 460 redesigned. The 6.8 V10 3 valve 362 HP is a much superior engine. Why is the 6.8 V10 a superior engine to the new 7.3 V8? Inquiring minds want to know. Richard

RE: Kiwkie step Model ? 1997 fleetwood bounder

Should be a model #32....... The update change out kit is a pain to test the motor. The motor has the leads plugged into the motor and if the steps are in, you have to cut the wires to test the motor. With the old system, there is a splice in the motor leads that you can get to to test the motor. The bushing are built into the linkage. Maybe all you need is the linkage? Richard

RE: Short?

They called you and said it was affecting another pedistal, not the entire park so its very beleavable. They may have saved you coach from fire if you actually have a short. Losing a nuetral can do some strainge things. Maybe you will need a thank you card instead of a Lawyer. Give us an update when you find out. Loosing a neutral will NOT do strange things to a 30 amp system. Loosing a neutral will just shut the system down Richard

RE: Throttle Body Confusion

It’s a P30 chasis not P32. I only come in a short time each month. Situation is ok. Will post if I need assistance. Case closed. That's backwards. Chevy class A motor home chassis are P32. Chevy truck chassis are P30. But the P32 chassis has been misidentified for years. Even the generic parts houses has it wrong in their computers. I've actually seen the P32 parts books at a GMC dealer. Richard

RE: ? Class-A Gas Climbing MPH

Headed East on I70 up to the Eisenhower Tunnel (11,000+ ft.) with a 95 460 F53 with car in tow (20,000 lbs) . 35 MPH in second gear @ 3200 RPM. With 528 stroker engine, I climb the same grade @ 55 MPH in high gear. Richard

RE: Motor home tire pressure

The motor home manufacture puts a decal close to the drivers seat with recommended tire pressures on it. That should be all you need. Richard

RE: Think you can follow instructions?

So the consensus is, opinions without proof. 40 years as an RV Tech and still working. MY explanation IS NOT an Opinion. IT IS FACT. Doug Sorry but the question wasnt where does it go, it was can you prove it. No one has provided any documentation. Now your're steeping on the wrong toes. What Doug states is FACT! The man gives the best answers of any one on the forum. Richard

RE: Think you can follow instructions?

Freeze up can also occur due to lack of air flow. Not if the freeze sensor is working properly.

RE: Great underbelly enclosure videos

OK I looked on McMaster-Carr where they have just about everything mechanical and useful info on what the have. Look at this table and they are type 440 SS which comes as a bit of surprise to me since SS is usually not thought of as that strong. 410 stainless is very hard. It is used to hard surface many large industrial valves. I once resurfaced a 24" gate on a gate valve with 410 stainless. Took me most of the day with stick arc. Richard
