RE: Auto Generator Start

I added a magnum auto start stand alone to my RV. It wasn't hard.

RE: Mat rant

I don't put my mat on grass, but I hate grass. Kids and dog track the mowed grass in, a constant battle. Plus when its wet with dew in the morning my sneakers end up soggy.

RE: ONAN 5500 Grand Marquis fuel pump & filter

You can get the OEM Onan one from PPl motorhomes for $82. I bought the Airex from Amazon. Mine failed after 40 days, in the same way as yours is currently failed, overheats after a few hours and then if it cools it works again. Tried to use the warranty, well their is no warranty, because the warranty has to be honored by the seller and Amazon won't take it back after 30 days. They also have the fuel filter. https://www.pplmotorhomes.com/parts/rv-appliances/generator/permanent-generators/permanent-generator-replacement-parts/cummins-onan-fuel-pump-a047n929_49-7991?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI2YqipvH14wIVmpOzCh3YuwywEAQYBCABEgIoKPD_BwE https://www.pplmotorhomes.com/parts/rv-appliances/generator/permanent-generators/permanent-generator-replacement-parts/onan-fuel-filter-149-2341-01_68657

RE: Onan hot hot hot

I think I am going to pull the trigger and buy this: 026-00495 SIDE AIR DISCHARGE https://sleequipment.com/onan-genuine-part-026-00495-mounting-kit-onan.html Onan also has one that pushes the hot air towards the back of the generator.

RE: Onan hot hot hot

But we are still either vapor locking or control board is getting too hot and shutting off fuel flow. What I did to ensure it wasn't the control board. I ran a hot wire from positive to the fuel pump directly. The control board no longer had any power to start or stop the fuel pump. I had the same failure still so I know its not the control board. When doing this test you have to have a fuse inline, and I put it outside the gen box so I could grab the fuse and pull it quickly to kill the pump. You must be judicious to quickly kill the pump when the generator dies or when you turn it off. Personally the fuel pump seems to be in a very bad location, it gets no airflow and remains really freaking hot. I might add a 12v muffin fan to get some air to it.

RE: Furrion rv air conditioner, anyone have one yet? Or Attwood?

I love the noise of my AC. It helps me sleep in a truck stop next to rumbling diesels. ;)

RE: Renting out your RV nightmares.

One other thing. Take a few pics of the tank, and then put this in google search: rv holding tank -portable The click on images. Maybe you will get lucky.

RE: Onan hot hot hot

from the installation manual Hot Air Recirculation Test A representative installation of the genset must be tested to determine that the genset will not overheat due to recirculation of hot air back into the genset. 8.4 Test Requirement The rise in inlet air temperature over ambient air temperature must not exceed 15°F (8°C). A rise in inlet air temperature indicates hot air recirculation. If the rise exceeds the requirement,steps must be taken to reduce recirculation to an acceptable level. I am wondering if my multi probe BBQ thermometer is enough for this job, I'm going to try it and see as soon as the rain (cooler weather) moves away. I think the problem is recirculation on my unit with the same exact issue as the original posters.

RE: Renting out your RV nightmares.

I've heard of folks having good luck with eternabond for fixing tanks,and that might allow you to get it on the road (and rented or used) while you wait for the replacement tank to be made. Maybe a mobile RV service guy would be more interested in working for the money. With the tank out for repair it can be measured, and you will find who made it probably imprinted on the tank. I doubt Roadtek made the part, but its possible. Worse case scinaro is a fiberglass duplicate would have to be made, easy peasy for a boat place. BTW, I rent my RV as well, try to ignore the 'nay sayers'. At least we won't have to compete with them.

RE: Onan hot hot hot

Mine (5.5k hgjab) is the same way. It gets hot as hell under the cover. Onan has a procedure in the installation manual to test that the hot exhausted air isn't being re-ingested for cooling. However I personally don't have the tools for that.

RE: Go 5 miles over in Indiana and foreit your vehicle

I'll start to be concerned about it when I hear of someone getting stopped for 5.1 MPH over the limit and getting their vehicle seized with no criminal action/allegation involved. Why would it take that for you to be concerned about police stealing peoples property?

RE: Go 5 miles over in Indiana and foreit your vehicle

I agree. I still do not know how this practice has not been shot down simply from the lack of due process aspect. Then the whole, is the value of the forfeiture appropriate for the crime. But that is full circle as was there even a crime? Even if a crime exists its wrong. If the court awards damages, I can see the court taking possession and liquidating the asset to pay the damages because you won't, but I see no reason why LE should have anything to do.

RE: Go 5 miles over in Indiana and foreit your vehicle

I hope that soon civil asset forfeiture will join communism on the dung heap of history. Its not constitutional in the slightest.

RE: TriMark Door Handles - Please submit failures !

I don't think you can blame china for what Trimark makes and sells. Trimark spce'd a zinc potmetal striker instead of steel.

RE: TriMark Door Handles - Please submit failures !

I have had that happen to me twice.. the second time I had a smith carve me a new stricker bolt out of STEEL instead of the **** pot metal Tri-Mark uses Same with the basement latches.. I have some spare STEEL striker bolts which I will be installing as the pot metal jobs fail and fail they will. Luckily now Trimark offers a steel striker. I've not had a basement latch fail ever (knock on wood), however I can see how it could happen.

TriMark Door Handles - Please submit failures !

The Trimark 1650 door lock failed on our RV. My RV is a 2017. We stopped to get gas, I got out and it worked fine, filled the RV up and went to leave and the striker on the door latch had failed. If that has happened to you please go to this website and file a complaint, perhaps they will recall them. https://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/VehicleComplaint/? This is the second one I have had break on a newer RV (less than 3 years old) and I witnessed one fail for the camper next to me on a 3 year old RV last month. These things are total trash.

Campingworld Tallahassee

I have been a customer of Camping World in Tallahassee for 5 or 6 years. I bought two travel trailers from you guys at that location. I don't consider any RV store to be great when it comes to customer service, because I've never seen such a beast, but at one time this store was, in my opinion, better than average. However in the last several years it has gone from better than average to total horror story. You go through staff like a newborn goes through diapers. No one returns calls. I wrote about damage that happened to my RV when it was in for warranty service and that fiasco before here, and thankfully you guys rang someones bell and that was taken care of satisfactorily. Recently I've called for parts and or service several times. I called when you had the discounted installation to find out about getting satellite dish installed. Never got a call back. Yesterday I called at 8:30 am, and got sent to voice mail when I asked for parts. I left a voice mail saying I needed a part for an Onan Generator ASAP, here is the part #, please call me if you have it or not so I know. The part, fuel pump for an Onan generator, is needed for a trip I am leaving for tomorrow. Do you want to know when I got a call back? I didn't. I don't know what is going on with this store, but its just ridiculous.
