RE: Im in need of a 1992 Caribou Fleetwood. Truck Camper Manual

Manuals for RV's that come from the manufacturer are general and not always that helpful. The specific manuals for whatever component or appliance that is a problem are usually more helpful. What exactly is your problem?

RE: water water everywhere but not a drop to drink!

Does that filter filter out the soap and shampoo? Might be hard to rinse off.

RE: When do you throw in the towel?

I'm from SE Wisconsin. I remember our cars rusting through so bad that you could see through the holes in the floorboard down to the street. Here in Colorado my 1999 Suburban has hardly any rust at all. I decided it was in good enough shape to be worth a new engine (**** plastic head gaskets). Now that you have put so much money into yours, I would probably wait and see if the repairs hold out.

RE: Clearance lights not working

I have a line tracker/signal tracer that is really helpful for those kind of things. The one I have is made by Sperry but there are a lot of other brands and models of them.

RE: removing WELDEX back/up monitor

Check and make sure that it's not a problem with the connections or wiring. Amazon has a lot of monitors you can check out.

RE: Tilting Solar Panel

There is a video on youtube, "What effect does tilt angle have on solar panels?" By the altE store. She comes up with numbers that are a lot different. Interesting video worth watching.

RE: Restrictions on older RVs.

We camp at national and state forests and parks where there are no such restrictions.

RE: Onan QG 5500 gen set

Probably no engine damage, but you will get fouled plugs and poor running over time. I would get the smaller jet and try it.

RE: Real small motor homes; value?

You are not the only one. But there are plenty of people buying them even if they are just a toy. When we looked at out HR my wife said, "It's too big." Now she wouldn't want anything smaller.

RE: Please read the signs....

I am one of those RV drivers that you all are cursing out and I'm going to tell you my side of the story. I drive many two lane roads in the mountains that do have pull-outs for slower vehicles. Very few of them are paved. When I start to see a line of cars behind me I start to look for a way to let them by. At the moment that I see a pull-out I have only a few seconds to be sure that it is wide enough, long enough, level enough and the surface is stable enough to make it safe for my RV and my family to drive onto it and drive out of it. If I am not sure of our safety I will pass it by, and you in the line behind me will throw a fit. But the safety of my family and the people in the cars behind me comes first. JMHO.

RE: motor home steps not comming out

I would check the connections and the ground again, then check the voltage at the steps. Then I would disconnect the steps from the motor at the linkage and check the steps. Make sure they swing in and out freely. Then operate the door switch and see if the motor works while disconnected. Last I would connect the motor directly to 12v with heavy gauge test leads and see if it works at all. If the voltage is too low correct that problem. If the steps are binding fix that. If the motor works from the door switch when disconnected from the steps you might have a bad linkage or a weak motor. If the motor runs when jumped but not otherwise it might be a bad connection, wire or control board. Hope this helps. These are basically the steps I followed when I fixed my own steps.

RE: Onan 2500 LP won’t turn over no light on remote switch

Download a copy of the "Flight Systems Onan Generator Troubleshooting Guide" and print it up. Also, do you have a copy of the service manual? They also have good troubleshooters. But start with connections and battery voltage as Sidecar suggested.

Need Source for Exterior Stripe Tape

I'm working on improving the looks of the front of my HR. Some of the paint and tape stripes have been baked off over the years and need to be redone. Does anyone have a source for narrow exterior stripe tape? Thank you.

Use a solar controller as a DC to DC charger?

I have been thinking about installing a DC to DC charger to properly charge my coach batteries from my alternator while driving. I have a dual-output alternator that delivers a constant voltage of about 14.4 V to the coach batteries. The DC to DC chargers I see are pretty expensive. I had the idea, why not just install a properly-sized solar controller, maybe about 30 amps, for the job. Is there something that I don't understand about this or will a solar controller work? Thanks for your advice.

RE: whether you like him or not Marcus is standing for the flag

The city gets $50 a day and Marcus flies the flag. Everybody is happy.

RE: Buying a 1984 Pace Arrow 34 foot GM chassis

IMHO, look for a newer one. Early 90's if you can. Won't be that much more expensive, and several improvements were made to both the coach and the chassis.

RE: onan4KYFA-6747p repair manual

I called my local Cummins Rocky Mountain dealer and the parts man sent me a manual in an email.

RE: Routes north from Denver

E470, Pena Blvd, Tower Road, Highway 2, Highway 85, Wadsworth isn't bad, Ward Road, Highway 93. Those are the roads I use when I'm avoiding I-25. Timing is everything for a sane drive up that highway.

RE: US 40 thru Colorado

Basically a two-lane road. Vast open high desert landscape which is likely to be hot, then Rabbit Ears pass, then Berthoud pass. Steamboat Springs and Winter Park are the tourist towns. I prefer to drive that kind of road during the daylight hours, it's safer. If you do drive it at night, be very careful for wildlife out on the road, particularly around dusk.
