RE: Hard baseball sized "bump" outside RV

You are lucky to be in Florida. Florida has some of the best consumer vehicle laws. I think the seller/manufacture gets 3 chances for repair and then must buy back. Richard

RE: What jack to have onboard for roadside tire changes?

I carry a mounted spare and the tools to change it. I really hate being dependent on others. I don't know how long I'll be able to do this but at 76 I'm still twisting nuts and bolts part time. Richard

RE: Upgrade V-10 to Turbo?

Maybe you could do to your V10 like I did to my 460 Bounder. Add a stroker crank, RV cam, raise the compression ratio, Banks exhaust & a tuner. Never too much HP................... Richard The only thing I know of that is available are cams........and they cost around $1000! A crank would be custom. Performance Pistons and rods from a 5.4 are a direct fit. No aftermarket heads available, and again head work would be pricey and not worth it for the minimal gains they would give! But it's all about the fun and the challenge. Some of us gearheads never outgrow "more HP & Torque". Don't you waste money on some fun? Richard

RE: Upgrade V-10 to Turbo?

Rich, where are you finding these parts? Then there is the balance problem. I couldn't find stroker crank for the V10. I suspect the 4.165 crankshaft on the V10 mostly fill the crankcase. All the other stuff is readily available. Or are you talking about my 528? Richard

RE: 12V TVs - Size from 24-32

Lots of 12 volt TVs on Amazon. Up to 40". We have 2 12 volt TVs in out MH. No getting up to turn on or off inverters. Just push the power button on the remote and watch over the air TV. It a different story for satellite TV. The DW has to go turn on the inverter. Richard

RE: Have no electrical power and no propane on one side of coach

Some one on the internet mistakenly call the battery disconnect switch a salesman switch because they saw a salesman using it and now it's an internet truth. Geeeeeesh...... Richard

RE: Onan Gen--hard starting and surging

Rusty if you have a 5K Onan in your 95 Bounder, it has been changed. In fact, I don't believe Onan made a 5K 120 volt gas generator for RV service. I sure would like to see a picture of the data tag on that generator. 95 Bounders came with an 4K BGE Onan with one Air Conditioner and a 7K NHM Onan with two Air Conditioners. Richard

RE: National Sea Breeze bedroom slide gears

If GREGORYJ has the correct information for you, then Boston Gear has a better price. Richard

RE: Onan Gen--hard starting and surging

Your Onan NHM 7K generator has an adjustment on the bottom of the carb for different altitudes. Try turning the screw counterclockwise for a slightly richer mixture, and see what happens. The ethanol in the fuel is actually a solvent that helps keep the carb clean. Remember when we used to add ethanol to our gas to help pass any water that was in our fuel tanks. Now we don't need to do that. Richard

RE: Looking for Recommendations for a Replacement Water Pump

Regardless of how many gallons per minute a pump is capable of pumping, the shower head on your shower, the kitchen faucet, and even the flow of water in your toilet, all have step down or restrictive water savers built into them that will permit only so much water to flow. Any water pump or water source (if plugged into a garden hose) will not change the amount of water that comes out of the end of your faucet. So, might as well replace with just about any water pump that fits your budget. Don't believe me, remove the shower head off your shower and catch the water in a bucket. Time it and see how long it takes to fill. Now do the same thing with the shower head on, and you'll find it take twice or even three times longer to fill the same bucket. Take a look at the year of the OPs coach. 1989 He may not have flow restrictors. The Federal Energy Policy Act of 1992 mandates that "all faucet fixtures manufactured in the United States restrict maximum water flow at or below 2.5 gallons per minute (gpm) at 80 pounds per square inch (psi) of water pressure or 2.2 gpm at 60 psi.

RE: Battery Monitors

A shunt is just another device to get corroded and cause a bad connections. Meters with hall effect sensors are the way to go for monitoring batteries now days. All the goodies Richard So, with one of these, does the sensor need to go near or at the battery? I suppose if there was an online manual I could get all this info. Thinking that the Victron and the Morning Star are the "standards" for reliability and accuracy, how do these measure up? I like the idea of not needing to cut a shunt in but that's not really a deal breaker in my book. Most of my blanks in my mind are the location of sensors, the location of the read out, and what connects them together. It looks like the base station and the sensor goes near or at the battery and the read out goes........wherever? The sensor does not need to be near the battery but it does need to surround the battery cable that the battery gets charged and discharged from. I have done some extensive rewiring on my Bounder and my Hall Effect Sensor is about 13' from my batteries. Richard

RE: Time to hang up the keys...(consignment ?)

It is my understanding that you comp and liability insurance is no longer in effect when you leave a MH on a consignment lot. And consignment lots do not provide insurance. Check with you insurance agent before using a consignment lot. Richard

RE: 1999 Fleetwood discovery not cranking.

Your coach has battery disconnect switches from the factory. They are in the Battery Control Center (BCC). The disconnects are controlled by the two rocker switches by the door, labeled Main & Aux. The BCC is probably in the bay just forward of the batteries.

RE: Atwood/Dometic furnace motor updates?

You do not want roller bearings in a living environment. They are noisy beyond belief. Think about it, all the electric motors in your home and RV have bushings for a reason. As an example, all high speed printing presses have bushings on all the shafts. The noise/vibrations from roller bearings would show up in the print. Richard

RE: SPARE TIRE

Like HBJBIRD, I've had tire failure where service was not an option. It would drive me nuts (nuttier than I already am) waiting for hours for service. I carry 4 credit cards that won't work when cell service is not available. GRIN..............Sorry couldn't resist. If you're handy enough to change a tire, then go for it. Richard
