RE: Tx Fluid Level ??

and Add if too full it can cause the front seal to leak. Assuming you are checking fluid with it hot in Park or what every your manual states. My newer vehicle has no stick and it is important that the correct level be in the pan. I curious, what is the reason the front seal would leak if too full? Richard

RE: weak antenna signal

2009 it most likely DOES have an amp.. Where the switch is I do not know. There are 3 popular types of switches 1: the famous wall plate (and the Sensar Pro upgrade.. I'll count them as one) 2: Box of many buttons (Matrix switch) two switches (Power and ANT) need to be pushed 3: A plain switch. nothing else, may be on a full size wall plate or a small cube, most anywhere.. This is used with a POWER INSERTER another cube) somewhere on the power line. NOTE blown fuses will prevent 12 volt from reaching antenna. Just so you know, many trailers are built with no amp. in the antenna. I hate to say "low budget" but..........

RE: Brake fluid change?

There is no such thing as synthetic oils. Synthetic motor oil is just higher quality petroleum. Syn brake fluid is just a higher number. It all comes from oil. The higher number fluids usually can take higher temps, so maybe the "synthetic" is a better choice for a heavy vehicle, but not all brake systems are meant for just any fluid you pick out. You can never change brake fluid if you prefer. As vehicles started to get better and last longer and need less maintenance then we started seeing things like "change brake fluid" or "rotate light bulbs" . Yes, some water particles might get in the brake fluid and have an effect, but you can run the life of the vehicle and never change the fluid, it will still work. Do change your brake pads and do use high quality pads for a motorhome. Cheap pads are the wrong choice. All brake fluids are technically "synthetic" in that they are man made and do not contain a petroleum base.

RE: Brake fluid change?

All brake fluid is synthetic. Brake fluid will absorb moisture over time and reduce the boiling point. Because our MH brakes work hard we want to maintain a high boiling point for safety reasons. Yes, I change my brake fluid every two years. Richard

RE: mystery switch

The outlets by the TV are switch off when the ignition key is turned on, so the driver can not watch TV while driving. That might be the reason the covers are black. Richard

RE: weak antenna signal

You could step up to the good stuff. Sensar IV amplified antenna. About $52.00 Sensar Pro secondary amp, signal finder. About $60.00.

RE: My 4th. Ford V10 Class A, but lacks power???

The 2020 should have he 362HP V-10 also. I know mine feels underpowered, but that is due to the drive by wire system. It doesn't give you full throttle opening. Next year a 5star tune will correct that. That would be 320 HP & 460 lbs torque. Richard

RE: 2 Battery banks built from 6 volts

https://i.imgur.com/sG0zRFbl.jpg not a tone of room on this small tongue, but angle iron might be the trick. Didn't want to put a ton more weight on the tongue, but may be easier than the truck box. Bolt that angle iron to the tongue and mount those 6 volt batteries for and aft, for less width. After you get the iron cut and mounted you may want to stop by the local weld shop for the end pieces.

RE: MH accident in gas station!

I wonder how many of the folks here clamoring for mandatory training and licensing actually had said training themselves? Some, Im sure, but I bet not all. Of course when they were learning, things were different. And the bit about getting an attorney? Please... Im guessing you have one on speed dial? Its amazing all the speculation. Mike Well Mike, add me to the list of those trained. Would Military training to drive a wrecker with truck and trailer in tow qualify? Over 70 ft. long. Richard

RE: MH accident in gas station!

Another example of why there should be mandatory training, testing and licensing to operate anything larger than a car or pickup, or to tow a trailer. A lot of folks can't negotiate a Walmart parking lot in a Kia Soul, and the next day jump in a class A and hit the highway towing it. Exactly.........In Missouri you need an endorsement on your drivers licence to ride a motorcycle but can drive anything else as long as you're not driving for hire. DUH! Richard

RE: MH accident in gas station!

Wonder if that was a 3500 lb receiver the tow truck driver was lifting on? Did that MH have frame extensions? Kinda of scary stuff. Richard

RE: New LP/CO detector needed

So I’m just wondering how is he repairing the CO part of the detector. I know my LP side is functioning properly, it would seem to me repairing the CO side has some liability that I wouldn’t want to be a part of. Not bashing here, just an honest question! The CCI detectors do not have CO detection built in. Interesting that Safe T Plus has both in one device. LP detectors mount near the floor and CO should be mounted higher. Richard

RE: New LP/CO detector needed

Larry at CCIrepairs@gmail.com is doing CCI repairs. I suspect he can also handle Safe T plus. Larry lives in the K.C. metro area and offers a 3 day turn on repairs. Richard

RE: run problem with Onan Marquis 5000 BGM

I believe you oil pressure switch is next to the oil filter. Remove the filter and have a look. I think the switch is normally open. https://i.imgur.com/lbvsTsAl.jpg "border=0" https://i.imgur.com/m3zZPvb.pngClick For Full-Size Image. height=400 width=600 Richard

RE: Vapor lock 1990 E350 EFI 460 engine?

With fuel systems pressurized from the tank to the injectors, vapor lock is a thing of the past. Your pressure regulator will bypass the excess fuel and keep the fuel rail cool. A good fuel pump will pump far in excess of your engines needs. Richard

RE: Battery Hold downs

Well, I'll more than likely get a bit of flaming for this but, no biggie, been flamed many, many times both in my career and on here. Anyway, I changed from (3) 12V Junk INTERSTATE batteries to (4) Costco 6V Golf Cart batteries over 7 years ago and, since I have very, very little clearance above the batteries, I have NO HOLD DOWNS at all on those. They weigh 67 lbs EACH!!!!!!!! Those (4) batteries are very close to each other and have a small spacer in between them so to just keep them from POTENTIALLY from sliding around. Now, am I gonna BOUNCE them out of their somewhat secure position, with any sort of rough road or intersection? Nope, not gonna happen. As stated, they've been that way for almost 8 years and haven't moved one micro inch. Scott Scott, I also have no hold downs on my 4 GC batteries, but if they jiggle loose they have no way out but up 2 1/2 feet and out the hood opening. I have seen some under the stair batteries that have little surrounding them and could escape if not secured. I think it all depends............... Richard Hey Richard, Yeah, if mine had little to no side wall restriction, I'd find some sort of way to tie them down. But, the House battery tray is approximately 4" deep and, those batteries are snug as a bug in a rug in there. I'd have to do a moto cross race with it in order for those four house batts to even think about trying to get out of their enclosure. Scott You still have dirt bikes? Ya have an extra? Lets go riding. I just sold my last dirt bike about a month ago. :( Now I down to Segways for two wheeling.

RE: Bounder Does Not Start

Also...........on the left side of your transmission is a neutral safety switch/range sensor, that could have failed. Richard
