RE: Gen-set Troubles

Check oil level , onan 4000 is 1.6 qts. The dipsticks are off their mark. It should only be 1/2 way to full. Too much oil can cause your condition.

RE: Koni or Bilstein?

Agreed , Either or Bils or Koni’s. End result is the same. I have used both. Not so sure about Sumo’s or if HD sway bars would accomplish the same thing. Don’t really know.

RE: Onan 4000 Genset K-1 Relay-Starter Connections

In the past i always used Photobucket aa a host , using the yellow box to copy the pic using the “Reply to Topic not Quick Reply. “. You could preview your pic using the 3rd icon which is a magnifying glass symbol. But most of the time now, I’m using my Iphone and i have no idea how to post pics using my phone. Here is something from the Tech section. https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/15775751.cfm

RE: Onan 4000 Genset K-1 Relay-Starter Connections

Will the manual for the genny help ? If not google “your model number wiring diagram” It will show the wiring pdf for your genny. https://www.cummins.com/sites/default/files/rv-manuals/0981-0621.pdf See p 38

RE: Small Class A vs Large Class C

A 28' C with no slides would be my choice . I agree 100%, KISS ! If you think a small 'A' would be your cup of tea, I would rent one before you buy one. As stated , the front window view is very nice on the class A. The problem for me is still having to drive it to your favorite spot. People have to add all kinds of suspensions gadgets in order for them to not wiggle n waggle down the road. Most of those kinds of floorplans all have multiple slides in order to make them appealing. That could mean a lot of extra unbalanced weight, combined with the short wheelbase and an entry level frame to support it all. Be careful of RV's with light frames, they can pop large windows and front windshields if the frame flexes too much. This can occur when parking on an off level campsites or using the hydraulic jacks incorrectly. In some cases, it can be a recurring problem. Just do your homework before you make the investment.

RE: Quality in a class C

No such thing as a quality RV. Unless you look in the $500k and above range. Even then ... I think they upped that to $2 million now :). and when you do have problems after spending that amount, it hurts even more, besides that, they want them taken back to the factory not the dealer.

RE: Batteries won't hold charge - need help

Still a bit confused on how to check where the source of drain is coming from as this is all new to me but will study over everyones notes and try and locate the power drain. You can use an inexpensive multi-meter . Hook up meter using the amp setting. Disconnect the negative cable off battery of choice to test things on the coach or chassis side. Hope this vid helps and explains the ‘how to use’ a mm to test. https://youtu.be/KF1gijj03_0

RE: Batteries won't hold charge - need help

While looking at the amp draw on your meter, start pulling the coach rv fuses one at a time until the meter shows which circuit the problem is on. At least that will narrow things down . On the truck side : Having a 50mA draw on the chassis battery is normal. That low draw will take a long time to deplete a good battery. While checking amp draw make sure you put tape over the door switch to keep the interior light off.

RE: Electric awning......not working?

My RV needs to be off and not running to operate the awning. 12v power needs to go the switch. If you hear a clicking sound at the switch then its getting power. You could check the wires with a volt meter. The fuse needs to checked. Switches are a recurring issue for most.

RE: Nissan versa flat towing

When i was researching the Nissan Versa , i decided against the Versa. I copied this from another rv post. Vehicle Warranty comes into play even with the manual trans. “This is the reply I received from my Nissan dealer Nissan does not make a vehicle that they recommend for flat towing, even the Manual Trans Versa. You technically COULD flat tow the vehicle but it does void part of the transmission warranty. Thank You, Mason Day Your Friend in the Car Business Pearson Nissan of Ocala 2060 SW College Road Ocala, FL 34471 “

RE: House battery recommendations.............

Lithiums now have warming technology. There is a thin wire that hooks up to the pos terminal. It activates internal heat so the battery can be charged when its cold. If AGM’s are your game, i always have used Deka .

RE: 2016 Ford Chatteau 22e pricing..........

Sounds ballpark to me in todays market. As long as the floor plan is what you want , i would give a thumbs up.

RE: Minnie Winnie 25B

It would be a good choice as long as you can handle a double bed of 54” Wide and also be able to crawl out of it, being a corner bed. It does offer a sofa and dinette. Thats a plus.

RE: 2008 Jayco M-28 Quality

Quality in an rv is something that i have been trying to uncover since i started repairing my first one in 1970. Im sure by now, you understand that any rv thats 13 years old , survives by the care it was given throughout its life. Quality is just a word.

RE: Kelderman Air Suspension

Do you plan to do the install yourself ? If not make sure the manufacturer will install. From what i read while looking into air systems last year, the instructions are very generic and not straight forward. RV shops , truck shops and dealerships that i called turned me down. Maybe you will have better luck. But make sure they have experience installing your desired system, you don’t want some half-wit taking a stab at it.
