RE: How long can you go on a 50 amp extension cord?

Voltage at an outlet can only be accurate if you are reading it while it is under the full load that you plan to use.

RE: How long can you go on a 50 amp extension cord?

Also you need to take in to consideration the wiring going to the 50A plug that you will be connecting to. If it is a long run from the source to the 50A pedestal you may already be marginal as far as voltage drop goes. Not all 50A plugs are wired to provide 100 amps of power.

RE: Natchez Trace

You do have to watch for turkeys and deer but other than that it is an easy drive. Lots of neat places to stop along the trace.

RE: FORD 460 Overheating Mystery

Do you have access to a ScanGauge, or similar type gauge to hook up to your OBDII connection to get an accurate temperature of the coolant? Do you have one of those inexpensive laser temperature guns to check around your coolant flow path to see where the temperature is being generated. In other words what is the temp of the coolant in to the radiator and the temp out of the radiator. I believe that your transmission fluid also runs through your engine radiator. Is there any chance that your transmission is running hot, for whatever reason, and this is affecting the engine coolant temp?

RE: windshield gasket for 1999 Holiday Rambler

Check to see if it is just a loose dash which is making the windshield appear loose. The front cap should be fiberglass and maybe the steel supports have come loose or there are broken welds.

RE: Anyone tried Bluetooth Backup Cameras?

I changed my cameras to the Voyager monitor and cameras using my old cables. Great picture. I added a wireless bluetooth Garmin camera on the side of the coach for alignment with fuel pumps. The picture from the bluetooth camera is sufficient but is not near the quality of the wired cameras. It also sometimes will get interference from fluorescent lights, etc. I should add that a wireless camera is not really wireless since it requires power to the camera and a means to turn it on and off.

RE: smoking diesel exhaust

Usually an indication that your engine is running rich, or using more fuel than it can burn efficiently. This could be from worn out injectors that have an enlarged hole or other things that are putting more fuel in to the cylinders than the engine needs.

RE: Cant find a toilet seat and cover for Dometic 8700

Go to Home Depot or Lowes. The seat is a standard elongated seat available for a residential toilet.

RE: Looking for Transmission cooler radiator 03 Diplomat

None of the RV manufacturers made their own oil coolers. They all use standard sizes that are available. I'll bet that any radiator shop could find a replacement based on the size and the number of rows of cooling lines.

RE: Workhorse oil cooler lines/hoses

Besides the oil cooling lines there are also transmission fluid cooling lines that can have the same issues.

RE: FYI zantrex charger inverter in 2001 Discovery

With a Xantrex, it is called pass through current. There are also internal glass fuses in a Xantrex inverter that can fail. They cost about $1 each.

RE: Where does the little red wire go

As mentioned red is usually for power. Perhaps it is used to power the back lighting at night.

RE: Windshield replacement

Somewhere on the windshield there will be numbers identifying the specific glass part number. I used RV Glass Solutions Click Here They came to me and installed a new windshield in about 1 hour. Great service.

RE: Installed supersteer springs but...

Did they change the front ball joints at the same time? The reason I ask is that there are two different ball joints available and if they used the smaller ones instead of the larger ones for the P30 with rear disc brakes, they will make noise.

RE: Water damaged subfloor, how to replace advice?

We traveled a lot during the Winter months and we found that in the front and rear fiberglass end caps, they used fiberglass batt insulation that had sagged. This allowed the interior surfaces to sweat from the cold outside and the moisture inside. We discovered it when it was dripping on to our dash. I removed all cabinets so I could get to the inside of the fiberglass end caps and used two part closed cell spray foam to insulate the inside of the fiberglass. This took care of the problem and made the coach much more comfortable in the Winter, at least down to -5 during one trip. You might want to check your end caps because Monaco was using fiberglass in 1990 and it could have sagged away just like ours did and allowed a lot of moisture to develop inside the coach.

RE: Water damaged subfloor, how to replace advice?

I am not sure about 1990 but I know in later years they used a sandwich type of floor with styrofoam between two sheets of flakeboard. It was about 2.5" thick.

RE: What The Heck???

Now go out and enjoy yourself. Glad things got resolved.

RE: What The Heck???

As long as the two negative posts both go to a common ground, they do not need to be connected together as the ground will connect them. Going back to your ORIGINAL post, you said that you smelled an electrical odor from the house battery area. Usually when there is an odor, something is usually fried and is no longer working as designed. I would look for whatever burned and start from there. Check all fuses even if they look good. You can also apply 12 volt power to your jack pump and see if it operates. You have a few different interlocks that must be in the correct position before your jacks will operate. It might be time to go back to your manual and make sure that you are trying to retract them according to the book.

RE: What The Heck???

The only thing that I can think of that will affect both the house and chassis voltages is a short to ground by the battery isolator. This would prevent the alternator from charging the batteries and providing enough power for the ignition. I'm guessing that it is not a permanent short or the engine would never start but something that fails after a period of time and shunts all of the current to ground instead of charging the batteries.
