RE: Help! HVAC system not working at all

Your HVAC is from Denso NOT Evans Tempcon. Click on downloads for complete wiring print. On my 95 F53 Bounder, behind the dash, there is a fuse in a plastic fuse holder that supplies the 12 volts for the HVAC. Mine has a label from Ford that says HVAC. Yours may be the same. Richard

RE: How much does 30+ feet actually effect ability to find space

I find some campgrounds on the west coast have length limits. MY 33' MH has a decal under the drivers window that says "30W". Don't ask, don't tell. Richard

RE: Electrical Issue?

Re: loose screws in the breaker box. When it takes 3 full turns and then some. on an RV that's only about 3 MONTHS old.. That is not "Crushing of the copper" that's just plain "Never tightened to begin with". I know an RV Repair tech who says "When I tighten them they don't work loose" You know what. She's not me. but When I tighten them they don't work loose. I mean it's been 14 years since I tightened that 3 month old connection down and it's not come loose since.. OK, you stated one instance. And how do you know if they have come loose or not, unless you inspect those screws. You don't seen to understand that copper under compression does collapse over time and needs to be retentioned. Where as punch downs or stab locks do indeed keep the required tension with their spring action. Again you can't deny the number of circuit breaker panel posts about loose screws vers loose wires in receptacles in RVs. How can you deny the truth as stated by a professional (Doug) RV tech that the receptacles in RV are not an issue. Richard

RE: Electrical Issue?

While some are advocating screw down receptacles over stab locks or punch downs, because they think they stay tighter longer. How about all the loose screws in the RV circuit breaker panels. More posts about loose screws in circuit breaker panels than loose wires in receptacles. Just goes to prove that screws are not the final answer to electrical connection either. Richard

RE: Electrical Issue?

So much bad karma about stab lock receptacles used in MHs. When installed properly they will maintain a tight connection longer than screw down receptacles. Check any screw down after 6-8 years and they will be loose because of the copper crushing. The stab locks in my 95 Bounder are all original and do not heat when using the microwave, coffer maker, PD9180 converter, or the 1500 watt heater. Richard Very interesting. Why do you think The NEC chooses screw down over Stab locks. Enquiring minds want to know. Which stab locks do you are you referencing? The stab locks used in RVs or the stab locks used in sticks and bricks? They are different. Can you show us the code where the NEC chose the screw downs. Also do you know the NEC is a NON Governmental entity and has NO punitive powers. The NECs suggestions must be adopted by others to be put in place. Richard

RE: What mapping software

Still use Street Atlas USA. Love the big screen and the ability to zoom with the scroll of the mouse. POIs, from the POI Factory, are better on a Garmin. Richard

RE: F53 vs P30

The P32 (P30 is the truck chassis) is the most problematic front end of the 2 MH chassis. It has the most moving parts to fail and they do. Robert Henderson of Henderson's Line up has made a very good living correcting the failings of the P32 front end. Both the P32 & the F53 can be made to drive well. Most owners try and throw all sorts of steering enhancements at them before finding the real problem. Thus they never drive correctly. The F53 responds well to correct toe-in and a front pan hard bar. The P32 responds well to correct alignment and Henderson bell cranks. Those with poor handling MH, that have paid for alignment, never tell you what the toe-in was set at. As an example, my 95 F53 calls for +/- 16" toe-in. No "I" beam axle will drive correctly unless the toe-in is set to a strong positive toe-in. So if all your concerned about is handling, both chassis can be made to handle well. Richard

RE: correct part number needed

As you well know from being on the forum for many years, the fuel pump on those old 460 F53 are prone to failure. I'm sure you also know the fuel pressure test needs to be done while driving at WOT. Should maintain about 32#. NO catalytic on 94-97 F53. Richard

RE: Front end wobble after hitting a bump

Death Wobble is started by the tires and allowed to advance by loose or worn components. Lack of dynamic tire balance or a bad tire belt is normally what starts the shaking. Many times the shaking can be mask by a dampener on the steering linkage, such as done on the old Ford F53 chassis (88-97). The shaking is more prominent on tires with tall sidewalls. Richard

RE: 1994 F53

my ICM is black, i saw a website with pictures of (4) different modules (2) gray and (2) black the gray for manual transmissions aka push start and the black were for automatic but the OPs problem is a lack of knowledge of those people serving him and using computer data bases, containing incorrect info You have been misinformed. Push start does NOT mean for manual transmissions. ICM, black ver gray. Again, if you want the correct info., go talk to subford on IRV2. Richard

RE: 1994 F53

i have a 97 bounder, but its on a 96 ford F53 chassis so far the only problem i've run into, is autozone selling me the wrong, ICM module for the ignition no trouble getting other parts for the chassis Mr. Wizzard, the correct ICM for your F53 is gray not black. Most Ford truck ICM modules for the 460 are black but the F53 uses the gray one. The most informed F53 chassis electrical guru is Subford on IRV2. When in doubt trust what he says. Roakauto ICM for your 96 F53

RE: Yes, another 'wandering' rant...er ... post...

It's amazing how the long over hang and short wheel base gets the blame for handling. I drive what might be considered a worst case scenario for wheel base and over hang. 1995 33' F53 coach, 190" wheel base & 13' overhang. It handles very well with having the toe in set correctly, a front pan hard bar and quality tires. I still work part time in the front end business and am very picky about how a vehicle drives. Toe in can be easily and correctly set with a tape measure. Jack up the coach, scribe the tires and measure front and rear. Do the math and make the adjustment. I've never had a tape measure get out of calibration. GRIN If your F53 doesn't drive well, your front end shop has not done their job. Time to go to Henderson's Line Up. Richard

RE: 1999 Fleetwood Discovery 38 ft. battery relays

Look at the circuit board in your BCC. There should be a connector for your isolator relay in the lower right hand corner. Make sure that connector has a good connection. Also, next to the connector is the fuse for that circuit. Make sure it is making a good connection. Richard

RE: Electrical Help Please

All Fleetwood class A (except Flair) since mid 1995 charge the chassis battery when plugged in. That feature started with CB-200 & CB-300 rev. C for RV Custom Products BCC. All you ever wanted to know about RV Custom Products BCC. Richard

RE: sparkplugs and wires

Autolite AP25 Platinum is OEM. Probably out last the coach.

RE: Engine batteries not charging

Close to the two battery banks is a black box called a Battery Control Center (BCC), manufactured by RV Custom Products. In the BCC, behind the circuit board, is the isolator relay. It's the silver one. It's probably your problem. On the back side of the BCC cover is a wiring print, that shows how the isolator relay connects the two battery banks together when either battery bank reaches 13.2 volts. Your coach DOES charge the chassis battery when plugged in. Advice about your charging system from non Fleetwood owners is usually incorrect. Richard so you're saying take the entire fuse panel out because there is no isolator relay there Read more closely..........."In the BCC, behind the circuit board, is the isolator relay." Richard

RE: Replacement Battery Charger - recommendation(s)

Keep it simple. Harbor Freight 2/10/50 Battery charger. Item # 66783. On any one of the 3 settings, the charger will shut down when it reaches 14.4 volts and turn back on at 12.8 volts. On sale for $29.95 4/12-4/14. Hook it up and walk away. Richard So the battery is at say 75% SOC when it reaches 14.4 volts, and now the charger quits until voltage drops back to 12.8 volts? Great! :( Well the OP was talking about a maintainer and low budget, for when he gets HOME. Those batteries will eventually top off while sitting in the driveway. On the 10 amp setting, it will take may hours to achieve 14.4. I have the same charger that I leave on my truck all winter, while gone to warmer climate. Richard
