RE: Settle this for Sequoia and 4Runner owners...

Newer vehicles have a CVT (continuous Variable Transmission). They are more computer controlled via ECMs. They seem to shift quite a bit different then previous automatics. Yes, they can be manually shifted in most. Not sure which transmissions are put in Toyotas, but most newer vehicles including large trucks use a form of CVTs.

RE: Pandemic issues affecting RV'ing?

Canada has better control then the US. I am guessing you are coming across something like CAN 1. From our trip east on that route I don't see any problems. Just don't come south as Covid is still running wild!

RE: Onan 4000 MicroQuiet - Quasi No Start (new carb needed?)

Now, run some Seafoam through your fuel system. Suggest a little heavy on mix as shown on can. Make sure you run genset long enough to get Seafoam into carb. It should remove much of the gum. Make sure you run genset under load!

RE: Onan 4000 MicroQuiet - Quasi No Start (new carb needed?)

No, it is time to remove the bowl, see if float is left in bowl or still attached to body with small pin. It is possible as other poster stated that debris could be in line or between needle and seat. You could carefully remove pin, float and needle. Spray brake clean or carb cleaner into opening. With needle removed, crank over genset to check for fuel flow into bowl. A good small engine (lawn mower) shop can go through carb.

RE: Onan 4000 MicroQuiet - Quasi No Start (new carb needed?)

Float could be stuck or needle has come loose from the float arm.

RE: Onan 5500 gold marquis rocker arm

Spray into cylinders a good quantity. Spray around valve step and spring. Let it set overnight. Rotate engine by hand, do not use starter! You may need to do it a couple times. B'laster

RE: Suburban 6 gallon water heater issue

Dinosaur Electronics Cover Suggest you call Dinosaur to insure you get the correct ones. Then order via Amazon as they do not sell direct.

RE: What axle do I have?

Axles are normally marked on the curb end (right side). Some have tag, some are stamped.

RE: Fresh water pump hook up issue

Not sure what compression fitting you are talking about. Surflo pumps use a standard national pipe thread. Pump should have come with hose adapters. Model of pump you purchased?

RE: Odd Electric Step Problem

The 1800709 comes up as a Kwikee 42 series step motor conversion. Kwikee 42 series manual Test the four pin connector as described.

RE: Odd Electric Step Problem

This portion is operating properly: With the ignition off and the step switch on the steps work fine. Extend when the door opens, retract when the door closes. Turn the step switch off while extended, they stay extended. Another item to check is the magnetic door switch. Make sure it is place and is aligned with the steel plate on door.

RE: Odd Electric Step Problem

Make and model of step? Kwikee steps have two. One from chassis battery, 30 amp One from coach battery, 5-7.5 amp I have seen a Sprinter chassis that has fuse block under the passenger seat. Almost need to pull seat!

RE: Battery/Inverter question for winter

Make and model of inverter? If it has an on/off switch, turn it off!

RE: Odd Electric Step Problem

There is two grounds in Kwikee steps. One for the control and one for the motor. Suggest checking both. Make sure the two fuses are good. One is from chassis battery, one from coach battery. Chassis battery power runs motor, chassis battery is control. Make and model of step?

RE: Powering multiple low voltage devices in the truck

I would run some of the items on a dedicated fused circuit straight from the battery and not through the factory fuse block. GPS, front dash cam and cell phone chargers would be connected to this source. I am guessing that they are all USB type connection. They would not draw that much!

RE: Advice to omit the auto change LP valve

Hard to mill the regulator to a reverse flair female connection. Easier to simply thread for Female Tapered Thread. It is National Pipe Thread.

RE: Where to find a center mechanism for Jalousie Window

The 008-220 looks like the one I installed. Strange without looking, my shaft came out at 90 degrees from tube.

RE: Advice to omit the auto change LP valve

Many many years ago, I had auto change-over Marshall brass unit. It lasted for numerous years. Looks like they now offer a kit that includes either a 15" or 24" hose MEGR-253HP-PT15 or PT 24. Difference is in kit it has high flow pigtails. 253 kit Marshall now calls them selves MEC.
