RE: Triple digit heat! Generator won't run

I suspect that the problem was triple digit heat. I went out this morning and the generator started right up. I turned on the a/c and let everything run for a while, with no problems. Thanks to everyone for your advice, which I did pay heed to and tried. I doubt it was the heat. The generators in all my Motorhomes for the last 15 years run more when the temp is over 90 than below. When traveling I usually start the generator when the outside temp is above 90 and leave it running with the A/C on until we arrive at our destination. I have run the generators in 115+ heat many times and never had any issues.

RE: FL Keys in June

In 2017 we went to Key west for 3 days the first week of June. This was our first time. We thought it was nice at 90. But then that was cooler than it was at home in AZ...but humid.

RE: Ford V-10 plug problems

I have a friend who drove his for some distance and ended up melting all the wiring and air intake system on top of the engine.

RE: Looking at Greenball Tow-master ASC tires

I ran Greenball Tow-master 15" tires for about 5 years (the only ones I could get locally at the time). I averaged about 18 months before one of the set would start separating. Since I bough the "certificates" I got them all replaced each time for almost free but I got tired the continuous fear of a blowout. When the new Carlisle Radial Trail RH tires came out in 2009 I gave them a try. Never had one issue since. Replace them after 7 years and got another set which I haven't had any issues with either.

RE: Magnum error code

Look in your owners guide: "High Volts AC appears on the LCD. The FAULT (red) LED is on. The PWR (green), CHG (green), and INV (green) LEDs are off. High Volts AC – This fault causes the charger to be disabled because a very high AC voltage (>150 VAC) has been detected on the AC input. Remedy: Remove all AC power from the inverter’s AC input for at least 15 minutes to automatically restart this fault. Ensure only 120VAC power is connected to each of the inverter’s AC inputs."

RE: No shore power

Question from an electrical novice. If the house batteries are dead or defective, do they prevent the shore power from working? We have a 50A circuit on our house and the breaker seems fine. Plugged in power cord and got nothing. That has never happened before. Thanks for your help. Without a lot more information we are all guessing. So I will too... The inverter/charger should have a input circuit breaker that may have been tripped. This will cause no AC power (on all inverter powered outlets) and no battery charging. And it will do the same thing with the generator.

RE: New Battery boiling

Just an FYI, I had one of my two 12v chassis batteries (in parallel) start boiling without anything changing since Motorhome was new (6 years). One of the old batteries got an internal short and didn't stop boiling until I disconnected the other battery from it. The bad battery was smoking and really hot. I feel very lucky I caught the issue before something really bad happened.

RE: How do you turn off the residential fridge?

Mine has a OFF switch but if it didn't I would turn off the breaker or unplug it (mine had a access panel outside).

RE: What Should I Consider for a 4WD Tow Vehicle?

FYI, I never heard of a CJ-4 either so I looked it up. Wikipedia states: "The Willys-Overland CJ-4 or "X-151" was only built as an experimental concept in 1950 or 1951..." So basically they were never in production.

RE: 2019 JL wrangler 2 door

I just went through that for a 2019 JL. No plug in is available yet. You will have to splice.

RE: Starting Issue

NO RV Genset charges any battery. Gensets have NO charging system at all. What the genset does is supply 120 power to the onboard COACH Converter or Inverter/charger, whichever you have, and THAT appliance charges the coach batteries ONLY. Your Emergency BOOST, requires the COACH batteries to be charged. The BOOST button is activated by the Coach battery 12 volt signal. It then merges the coach and Chassis batteries by a solenoid to supply power to start the engine. Odds are, as another posted stated, you had a temp bad connection on the engine starter/solenoid system. Doug Mostly true... except if you have a Bi-Directional Isolator Relay Delay (BIRD) installed then all batteries will be charges via the Inverter/Charger and the engine alternator. Every class A I have had or worked on over the last 15+ years has had one.

RE: How Would You Go?

I have been on about every route between LHC and DV. I didn't like the Kelso route the time I went because the road between Kelso and I-15 was very poor. Another route that isn't too bad is up US95 to Searchlight then Nipton Rd to I-15 then west to Baker and north on CA127 to CA190 into DV.

RE: Dish Antenna

We currently have Dish Network at home. When we go on long camping trips we would like to view our current recordings on TV. We see so many models of dish playmaker/tailgater antennas; how do we know which on will work for us? It would seem that a permanent dish antenna would be more convenient but are there any cautions we should know of? Has anyone had good or bad experiences? Assuming you have a Hopper DVR then this may be what you want. https://www.dish.com/equipment/dvrs/hoppergo/

RE: Is the Maxforce 10 a dependable engine?

And there you have it...All responses from non-owners. As a actual owner I can say that the MaxxForce 10 works great and they have no more (or less) issues than any other comparable diesel engine. Not having to deal with the DEF is a nice benefit. The only problem is there are way too many non-owners providing bogus information, usually spouting the issues that the larger engines had in trucks.

RE: Approaching Death Valley and Joshua Tree National Parks

US Hwy 95 is a good route and goes thru Pahrump Nv. ... FYI, NV160 goes to Pahrump, US95 is over 30 miles away.

RE: CA 190???

You need to get a Mountain Directory and see the description of that route. If you don't have a good engine brake I suggest you do not take that route. https://www.mountaindirectory.com/

RE: Approaching Death Valley and Joshua Tree National Parks

In January, access from the East off 95 is better. From West there are some passes that get snow. For Death Valley it depends on what your idea of "best" is. If you want steep and curvy then come in on CA190 from Lone Pine. If you like fairly straight and a gradual incline then CA190 in from CA127. Coming in from Beatty Nevada is a fairly straight but also fairly steep.

RE: When to quit.

It's really not about age. It's your overall ability to handle the driving and associated chores. In my circle of friends there is one who just can't deal with anything much more than a pickup truck at 60 (never could) and one who just turned 86 and is planning another year in the 40' Motorhome.

RE: Monument Valley

There is a new KOA in Monument Valley that no one mentioned. It is about 1.5 miles north of the intersection. I stayed there last year, nothing special but good views and very usable.
