3126B Code 71 and then 15 and 39

OK, so my 2000 Safari Sahara drives excellent for 10 minutes and then check engine light turns on and you can't got pass 45. When I brought it home I drove 60 miles at 45, all temperatures we perfect and rode great. Every so often the check engine light would go off and the RV would take off to 80MPH with no problem. But every time I slowed down the check engine light would turn off. Today it stayed on so I could get the codes. First I got code 71. I let it run for a few minutes, did it again and got 71, 15, 39. Anybody has any experience with these? It has to be a bad wire or sensor, because the minute the code clear it goes like a bat out of hell, no problem. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

RE: 1994 Safari Serengeti DP

I just bought a 2000 Sahara in excellent condition inside, 2 year old tires, really good outside, working diesel generator, 1 year old air conditioners, new flooring, roof sealed 6 months ago. Paid $13K. (just giving you a reference) The only surprises after I bought it were a fuse that rusted in the slideout system (grrrr) and now I found an electrical issue in the engine (corroded cable somewhere). If you have Hydraulic over Hydraulic brakes plan on new front calipers and pads. The build quality is way better than most of the other comparable coaches.

RE: 2000 Safari Sahara Slide out inop

OK, so, it used the same pump as the 3 jacks, but somebody added an on-line fuse that was not documented. Reattached the cylinder (which was a PAIN), and the slideout started working. Also, the solenoids were on the other side of the pump. On one side you had the jacks, while on the other side you had the slide out. If you didn't know any better, it could have been 2 different pumps. The fuse was a 5 amp and fed the solenoid that activated the pump. Slide works like a charm. Thanks.

I hesitate to go on any forum and recommend another one. But, it is probably warranted in this case. For more Safari-specific information you might try here:https://safarifriends.org/index.php Thanks! I got it fixed. A fuse be the selenoid rusted out.

RE: Ford V10 vs Chevy Gas

WH brakes were covered by a recall and like the one I had, everything was replaced with new parts. Unless the WH recall was totally ignored by the previous owner, the brake issue is really a non-issue. The bulletproof Allison transmission is the main reason a lot of people prefer the WH chassis. As far as internal failures, the rate is very low and probably about the same as with the Ford engines. Mine went well over 100K and so did many other 8.1L engines with no problems at all. Like every other mechanical object, it does take routine maintenance to keep thing running smoothly. That very well could be. I know at least 2 people that ended paying for a whole break system overhaul, don't now if they had any recall work done or not.

RE: Ford V10 vs Chevy Gas

WH chassis had more problems with the Bosh breaks and the 8.1 is considered less desirable because is not common and they have a history of internal failure. The same floor plan will be 10 to 15% cheaper with a WH chassis in the used market. The V10 pre-2001 had the spark plug problem. It was improved after that, and then completely fixed in 2005. Transmission on the WH is better than the Ford, but the Ford after 1997 does OK. Ford owns 87% of the gas market, that is why you don’t see too many WH. I had a fleet and as a policy decided not to buy WH because I wanted everything the same. If the WH has been properly taken care off, it could be great, but I would put some of the cash you save by not buying the Ford aside in case you have to do brakes. (Normally you need to replace calipers and all).

RE: 2000 Safari Sahara Slide out inop

Does the owner’s manual give any information? To call customer service. Safari went under in 2001, Monaco picked it up and they went under. Nobody to call...

RE: 2000 Safari Sahara Slide out inop

Hi guys! So, new to me Sahara has the main slideout stuck open and it won't close. I took the cylinder out to move it, but I have no idea how to troubleshoot it. Anybody knows where is the pump? Normal failure modes? Any help will be greatly appreciated! So hydraulic, rather than Power Gear Electric. Can't help much, this being the case, but do wish to follow towards a solution, where others should be able to help you. Yeah. See, first time with hydraulic. The others I can take them apart like those wiz kids with the Rubik’s cubes. This sucker I can’t even find the pump! The hoses go into the frame and is all enclosed...
