RE: class c upper clearance lights

Run a new hot wire and forget the old one.

RE: Wierd water gauge problem

First, remove the wire from the bottom sensor on the freshwater tank. that is the wire that all the other wires connect to through the water to provide a resistance value for the circuit board. If your board still shows full with that wire removed, then either the board is bad or the wires are connected out of order. You can check for continuity between that wire (after it's removed) and the frame or any known ground source. If it is a good ground then touch that good ground wire to each of the other wires(they can stay connected) and you should be able to illuminate each of the different levels. You will need to hold the test button down while you touch each sensor with the ground.

RE: class c upper clearance lights

They are in the parking light circuit have you checked to see if your chassis parking lights work? If not, I would check the parking light fuse for beginners.

RE: Ready to go camping...except: furnace won't fire

When the fan starts it has to lift the "sail switch". If the heater has not run for a long time the sail switch could be stuck a bit. Work your way into the fan discharge and move the sail switch manually back and forth to make sure it swings freely. Nothing other than the fan will operate if the sail switch is not activated.

RE: Onan primer switch wiring ??

Thanks Drew, I'm kinda of the same mindset as you about the level of priority. I just thought if it was a mater of just installing a jumper wire between a couple of circuits it would be worth it, but if a circuit board change is required it wouldn't be sensible.

Onan primer switch wiring ??

I have an older 2800 Onan Generator now and it does not cause the fuel pump to run when the "stop" side of the control switch is held down when the engine is not running in order to prime the carb. I have had other units that had this feature and they appeared to have the same double throw momentary rocker switch that this older unit has. I am hoping someone here can explain what is required to get that "stop" side of the switch to activate the fuel pump. When the genny sits for awhile it requires more cranking time than one would like to get the carb primed. Once the carb is primed it starts immediately. I'm just trying to make it easier on the starting motor system. I appreciate any info or opinions. Thanks.

Pleasure-Way antenna location

I want to install a Winegard Sensar IV tv antenna on our Pleasure way EXCEL TD. If anyone has this rig with this antenna could you post a picture of its location and orientation? Thanks Just trying to avoid trial and error in this area.

RE: Swing away Honda bracket.

Are you camped in the Alston Tract in that pic? No, that picture was taken at the trailhead to Little Otter Spring in Florida. It's about a 1 1/4 mile walk in to the spring which falls into the Suwannee River after a short run.

RE: Swing away Honda bracket.

Is the storage trunk underneath? I have been thinking of removing my Onan since I don't really use it and either try to build a storage compartment underneath or move the spare back under and make the whole van shorter. Haven't come up with a good way to make waterproof useable storage underneath. Sorry for the delayed response Jim. We went on a little RV trip and just got back. To answer your question, yes, the trunk is just forward of the rear bumper and is accessed through a hinged hatch under the night stand. You have to open the rear van door to get to it. We have the EXCEL TD model. I'm not sure how it is configured in the TS model. https://i.imgur.com/6bs25qql.jpg https://i.imgur.com/AyWFWlGl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/lSvQwfil.jpg https://i.imgur.com/tzSUZIql.jpg

Swing away Honda bracket.

We have a Pleasure-Way Van. It is Generator ready but where the generator goes there is a nice storage trunk that I hated to loose by installing the ONAN genny that would normally go there. We own a Honda 2000 that runs the AC OK so I wanted to figure out how to carry it without blocking the license plate or hampering access to the rear of the RV when the rear door is open. That way I would have a quiet genny and I could keep our storage area. I could find nothing on the market that suited my needs so I bought a little angle iron and drug out my welder. I already had a 12 inch drop hitch for our receiver so when turned 90 degrees it gave a good solid base to work off of. The RV already had the auto transfer switch and breaker installed so it was very simple to wire it up. There is a fuel line available but for now I'm just using a gas can. Pretty simple if you want to build one.... https://i.imgur.com/uPnzlMkl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/V3gaWj9l.jpg https://i.imgur.com/QeqAyL3l.jpg https://i.imgur.com/9inVIFwl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/elIvBhpl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/XQkbESBl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/cSoyopIl.jpg
