RE: Tire valve Stems

I had no idea that there was so many issues with metal valve stems. So far my 26 year old brass stems and gaskets are working perfectly. I did have one with a loose nut that I had to tighten. Richard

RE: Garage floor coating recommendations

I had the concrete polished to a glaze when they poured my shop. Doesn't need a top coat if done right during construction. X2 My 68 year old garage floor was polished at construction time. Still looks nice and is easy to clean. Richard

RE: Help/ Fresh Water Tank

2 1500 watt heaters would have probably boiled the water in the tank. The loud pop was probably steam pleasure relief. Richard

RE: 2000 Fleetwood Bounder Are Dash Air Parts The Same?

As already noted, compressor, condenser & receiver dryer are supplied by Ford. The rest of your Fleetwood Bounder F53 HVAC system is supplied by Denso, not Evans-Tempcon Richard I disagree:) The OP has a 21 year old Fleetwood Gas. While Denso did supply some Dash AC components to Fleetwood DIESEL models about 22 years ago, they did not supply GAS system components in 2000. Read what Denso has on their website for RV systems. 15 years puts us back to 2005, not to 2000. Also, there should be some tags on the evap cover and area of the OP's stating the maker of his system. He can also go to both Denso and Evans and look at the listing for DASH controls and see which matches his, which will be the maker of his Dash AC system. Doug HVAC Systems With over 15 years of providing quality HVAC systems to all the major manufacturers of recreational vehicles, only DENSO has the innovation, expertise and strict quality control to produce the best dash HVAC systems on the market. The DENSO RV HVAC system is a fully integrated system for RV heating, ventilation and air conditioning, engineered to tackle the specific requirements for today's varied motor homes. Disagree all you want but Denso did supply HVAC to the OP's coach. My 1995 Bounder gas has a Denso HVAC system. Denso was the premier supplier of HVAC to Fleetwood back then. It's easy enough to tell to tell if a Denso HVAC is installed. It's all electric with no vacuum controls. Richard

RE: Another Hot Water Heater problem

Go have a look at the connector that plugs into the circuit board. The connectors should have a bow shape. Use a dental pick and make sure the connectors are bowed and springy. Your connection at the ECO has to be good or the water heater would not have fired when switched on. Power from ECO goes to gas solenoids. I found this issue several years ago and then again last month while snow birding at Quartzsite. I had the very same symptoms as you, red light and lockout. Richard

RE: Old Vs New Rig

If you feel that you 99 coach is in good repair, then go for the face lift. Don't worry about the transmission heat. Ford did a good job of cooling, and heating when necessary, the transmission fluid. The Banks Power Pack is a good investment. You'll like the results. With you towing at the max, you may want to look at the rear frame extensions. Some of them are scary and could use some added metal and weld. My graphics were old and tired. I elected to replace the old graphics with paint. Taping before the paint was long and tiring. Richard

RE: Tow Bar Suggestions

The installation instructions with most base plate kits is usually well done. Your nephew should be able to do the install. The tail/stop/turn wiring should probably be left to the professionals. It requires running the wires the full length of the car and adding diodes. The aux brake will also require some wiring. On your C-RV there is a fuse that needs to be removed every time you toe the car. That will get old very quick. There are kits that replace the fuse with a fuse and switch, so all you have to do is flip the switch when you get ready to tow. Are you aware of the transmission procedure you must do every morning? Start car and run for 3 minutes, put transmission in drive for 5 seconds, put transmission in neutral, turn off engine and tow. DO NOT put transmission in neutral from any other position before towing. Richard 2013 CRV

RE: How to run exterior cable for wired backup camera?

Some back up cameras us the coax not only for the video signal but also for the 12V power. Thus you don't have to find or install power in the rear of the RV. Just power up the monitor and you're good to go. Just run the coax in split loom as already mentioned. Richard

RE: Ford V10 Triton Drivetrain

Entire drivetrain, no, the front half is usually the same in equal years. The class C is normally built on, depending on size and year, either an E350 or E450 chassis, the class A is usually built on the F53 (a stripped on F500) chassis. That also gives it bigger wheels, brakes, etc.... The Ford F53 chassis is NOT a striped F500 (F550) chassis but is built by Detroit Chassis LLC in Detroit MI. Exclusivity for MH service. Richard Actually, it's based on the 550 and up chassis. Not the same but modified for use as a universal chassis. Are you able to document you statement? Richard

RE: Cold Ambient Temps = Higher Alternator Voltage?

If your alternator has a solid state built in regulator, what you are seeing is designed in and normal. Richard

RE: Heated bays

Hi neighbor, 27° over night should not be a problem with no heat. The day time heat soak should help you through the night. With the Aqua Hot heating the wet bays, you are good to go.

RE: Is B-B charger for Lifepo4 lithium batteries needed?

Grover, I believe you're on the right track if your new batteries have a built in charge controller. As far as alternators not being able to fully charge house batteries, that's non-¢. A steady charge at 14 volts for a full day of driving will fully charge lead/acid house batteries. If you are concerned about over heating you alternator with Li batteries, why not put a temperature sensor on the alternator before and after the battery change and see what happens. I see so much hype about burning out alternators but no solid evidence. Richard

RE: Shower size

How much time out of your day do you spend in the shower? Unless you're the type that always has hook-ups and spends considerable time in a hot shower, the size just needs to be enough to fit you body with a little elbow room. The tub shower in our Bounder is small but the addition of a curved curtain rod really helped with elbow room. Most Bounders have a recessed sky light that allows room for a person over 6'. Richard

RE: Taaadaaa! Took the plunge. Airbags on the Class A

I drilled my frame with a Dewalt 1/2" Li battery drill motor & Harbor Freight Titanium(?) (at least they were yellow/gold in color) drill bits. Maybe, just maybe the difference is, I have a Black & Decker drill bit sharpener that does a really nice job of putting an edge on my bits. Turn the bit slow and push hard. The picture of the partially drilled hole looks polished on the bottom, where as it should show cut lines from the drill bit. Looks like the bit dulled before finishing the hole. Another option might be bringing in a on site welder. Just need a little shielding. Wife's cookie pans work well...GRIN Richard PS: MrWizzard, what part of the country are you located in? We're spending the winter in southern AZ. (Q) in the cold (45º) & the rain.

RE: Taaadaaa! Took the plunge. Airbags on the Class A

Bits are from new set, titanium coated, Richard you were under the rv ? Pushing up ? Solid ground under you Correct ,? You do realize there is a huge difference in the amount of applied force that can be maintained, Given that you were an immovable object which could not be moved, And my applied force was also pushing me away from the rv, remember physics, equal opposite reactions, you could not be moved the drill had to go forward into the steel, in my case the cutting force was actually 1/2 of the energy I was putting into it, nothing behind me keeping me immovable so all force is on the drill bit Yes I want to get harder drills, that stay sharp longer, also going to get some friend, younger and heavier to do the drilling But Not today, I'm exhausted, maybe later in the week or next weekend Yesterday was much too tiring No, I was drilling horizontal holes just like you. On my knees pushing the drill motor. Maybe I'm a little younger than you. I'm only 77. Richard
