RE: Centeroid fuel sender location 2002 Monaco Windsor?

On my 03 Windsor, the tank unit is accessible behind the pass side fuel door. The big door isn't made to raise like the other side but if you look under the edge there are 2 straps, detaching those straps will let you lift that door. You'll have to prop it up, then you'll have room to work. Take pictures and label the wires and the clocking, the screws are uneven. You can go ahead and try adjusting but I'm sure you will have to replace it. They are electronic and seem to finally die.

RE: Time for air conditioner replacement

I have all 3 new Penguin II units installed and running (all zones and all modes). I purchased a separate control module to be used with the auto generator start feature. What I did not know is that I need a "wiring kit" for the extra control board. Will be looking for one of those this week. In the process of replacing the ac's I have lost power to the Magnum energy display that is attached right below my new T-stat. At first the T-stat would not work but found a bad fuse. The fuse for the EMS is good. I looked for a fuse at the Magnum unit in the bay but did not find one. Any ideas would be appreciated. I have an 03 Windsor. In the bedroom I have two 120v breaker panels The panel on the left has 2 GFI breakers one of them ( top one ) kills my inverter display when it trips. On my coach, it also kills the pass slide ( kitchen ) and front TV

RE: Schoolies

The snobbery associated with some parks/resorts goes against the grain for me. However, having parked near schoolies that were much less than desirable I can see why the image parks associate with schoolies is so prevalent. I like the can-do attitude but in the real world, I don't believe most parks will be very welcoming to a schoolie. It's unfortunate but some people have made the schoolie image one that is looked down on.

RE: Mold in Storage Area

Is there plumbing above the storage? It may be a leak dripping into the bay

RE: Do you let you kids drive your motorhome

I'm not surprised that some people will ask. We all know those that have no limits and unfortunately they are the ones that you would trust the least. Without a doubt, it would be hard to tell anyone close to us no but if you let them use it others will know and they will all feel it's ok so they will want their turn. Before long you'll have to make an appointment to use your own HOHO. We looked at a nearly new coach, the insides were an unbelievable mess, food stains on literally everything, window shades were torn, etc. Their kids had borrowed the coach. So, I can't see how it would be a good thing to get started. Let their mother tell them no. LOL

RE: Existing air line for RV braking system

If you know what a regular air hose coupler looks like, the thing you would use to couple an air impact wrench to. My Brake Master coupler on the coach is about half that size. I think other systems use the same coupler, even if it is different it will be easy to change.

RE: Existing air line for RV braking system

The ones I have seen are pretty generic just a small air coupling not special for any particular brake system.

RE: Need an Education

Why get worked up over this small stuff? There are more important things in life.

RE: Need an Education

They're wondering why those stupid people don't have their engines running too. Or maybe someone annoyed them last night so it's get even time. To tell the truth, unless people are really making lots of noise late at night it doesn't bother me.

RE: Replace TV

I had some nice 5/8 plywood and made a door to mount my TV on. The door is hung with a piano hinge from the top and a folding cabinet door prop to hold it up when accessing the cabinet https://www.ebay.com/i/265000907285?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-213727-13078-0&mkcid=2&itemid=265000907285&targetid=4580771608074811&device=c&mktype=&googleloc=&poi=&campaignid=403204658&mkgroupid=1234751773358313&rlsatarget=pla-4580771608074811&abcId=9300377&merchantid=51291&msclkid=2e273f841e8e1935a6095f946e2072f4

RE: Tv problem

Terminology is a little different over here. By aerial are you referring to an antenna, which is what we use to receive regular tv stations? I suppose an oyster dish and sky box is a satellite system. This rear tv, is it hooked to the satellite or to an antenna? I keep a length of coax cable ( 50 ft ) which we can purchase at Wal-mart. If you temporarily substitute a long coax by just running it along the floor to see if it cures the snowy picture.

RE: Holiday Rambler in tank fuel pump quit. Cant find relay?

Have you noticed the tank sucking air when you remove the cap after driving? If it is the vent you could probably loosen the fill cap and solve the problem Don't drive like that if the tank is full as it may slosh fuel out.

RE: Holiday Rambler in tank fuel pump quit. Cant find relay?

Doug is right, those wires are for the electronic sender. Have you changed the fuel filters? There should be 2. Most problems like yours are filters. Diesel fuel can develop/grow algae, scum or whatever in the tank and can quickly clog filters. If you have that you will probably see it inside the primary filter, on top. It is crazy but the fuel is sucked all the way from the tank, there are after market pumps that can be used.

RE: Holiday Rambler in tank fuel pump quit. Cant find relay?

Are you sure it has a fuel pump in the tank? My Windsor doesn't have that, it has an electric fuel lift pump mounted on the engine. I can hear it run for a while when I turn the ignition on. What sort of trouble are you having?

RE: Selinoid

There are more than one type of solenoids. What are you working on? The leveling or?

RE: Monaco

My Monaco has a remote start switch in the engine compartment. When looking around back there people often inadvertently flip that switch without realizing it. Mine is about head high on the left side. If I put my left hand up to support myself that's about where my hand would be

RE: Roof Air Conditioner removal

I pulled mine up with a rope also. The thing that hasn't been mentioned that I did is I left it in the box for a smooth ride then put the old in the box and let it down. They are not that hard to manage.

RE: Cummins ISB 5.9 Cranks but no fire-ECM power.

You have found that 12v can back feed at times making diagnoses difficult. The fact that your step is not responding properly implies there may be some kind of problem in the ignition circuit. Add to that the key start works only about 50% of the time makes it look even more like something in the ignition circuit. I would try repairing the step and hope that will repair your no start problem too. Ignition switches are relatively cheap you could try replacing it. I think you can reach up behind the ign switch to make sure the wires are not loose It doesn't seem likely 5 different ECMs would all be defective. I just read a thread on IRV2 where a poster had the same issue A new ignition sw fixed his. https://www.irv2.com/forums/f115/ignition-switch-516512.html

RE: Is there any difference in DRIVING a gas class A vs diesel?

You'll never know until you drive some diesels. The first time we tried out a diesel I thought something was wrong with it the brakes felt funny and the ride felt mushy/soft. I'll tell you it didn't take long for us to decide that mushy ride was fantastic and the air brakes, just feel different. I don't notice them feeling different anymore. Most diesels are actually a little underpowered until you get into the bigger models with bigger engines. I'm not criticizing, each model is built to fit someones pocketbook. Buying used allows one to buy a coach they would never dream of buying new. If my DW would let me we would drive a big ole Prevost or perhaps a Foretravel but thankfully she has more common sense than me. Frankly, the quiteness is the thing we appreciate most. We can talk, listen to music, radio, or tv .

RE: My windshield nightmare.

Here in Tx, I think it was that way or maybe the glass co just forgave the $50 deductible But on the last windshield, they charged me the $50 saying it is required now. I don't know if it is actually a law or just something the glass & insurance companies started doing. The girl in the office didn't know, didn't care either
