RE: New Tires, should the lug nuts have a re-tighening check?

From the Freightliner Recreational Vehicle Chassis Maintenance Manual: Wheel Nut Checking IMPORTANT: In addition to the maintenance interval in this manual, check the wheel nut torque the first 50 to 100 miles (80 to 160 km) of operation after a wheel has been removed and installed. Not exactly sure what model and year manual I found, but I bet you'll find it similar to yours.

RE: Dealer never put TITLE in my name, am I stuck??

Since you have the bill of sale, file for a lost title. The DMV will do a search and if it comes back free and clear they can issue a new title. This is what I'd do in Michigan. And if it doesn't come back free and clear, at least they did the legwork for you.

RE: Bunk conversion

I think you could add bunks to Monaco 40PLQ. There's 4' or 5' in the back that had a couple differnt configurations. Could make a nice bunkroom back there.

RE: Battery light on dash on

Battery light will come on also if the PCM thinks the voltage is too high. Maybe with generator running while driving causing this. FINALLY! This is probably it. If the coach is set up to charge the chassis battery while parked, that same setup will try to charge the battery any time the generator is running. If the voltage it's applying is greater than the alternator voltage, you'll get a light on the dash.

RE: 12 or 14 ply, What Do You Use On Your Motorhome Tires

I'm not following why the F rated tire was near it's load max on your motorhome. It has a 3970 pound rating in a dual application, at 95 psi. That's 15880 pounds for your rear axle, still 1500 pounds over your loading and more than 2000 pounds over the axle rating of 13,500 pounds. Sure the G rated tire is rated higher, 17,640 total, but it doesn't seem the F tire was overloaded. Goodyear G670RV inflation tables

RE: Another F53 Cruise Control Post - Help!!

I got to mine, on my '04, through the doghouse. As I mentioned, it's above the driver's side of the radiator, just a few inches from your foot, when it's on the accelerator pedal. It might be accessible from the front, might just have to move some rubber shrouding, I'm not sure. The cable and the wires go to the rear, so the doghouse seemed like the right place to be working to me. Found an engine picture online, not mine. I circled the module. You can just see it under the hose. My motor cover doesn't go as far forward, making it harder to get at, but that's where Ford puts it. http://i240.photobucket.com/albums/ff122/ennored/web%20stuff/F53%20cruise_zpsobyfafcs.jpg

RE: Kelly – Armorsteel RSA 245/70 19.5 tires any Good

What wheels did you get? Are they 6.75" wide? 245 tires are supposed to be mounted on wheels at least 6.75" wide. Or did you just powdercoat the stock steel wheels?

RE: Another F53 Cruise Control Post - Help!!

The clock spring is how the wiring passes from the fixed steering column to the rotating steering wheel. Older models used a sliding contact. The wiring diagram in the link still calls it that on the 31-3 frame. It's just a coiled up ribbon cable in a plastic case, much like a "yo yo" style tape measure. It only has three wires. The cruise buttons share one wire with the horn. The horn working is a good sign that the clock spring is ok. It's not absolute, as the cruise wire could be the only one of the three broken, but that isn't too likely. (Other Ford applications used clock springs with many more wires. The F53 doesn't have airbag wires or lighted buttons, so the F53 version is pretty simple.)

RE: Another F53 Cruise Control Post - Help!!

Regarding the recall. Dusty (can we call you that OP?) said he had read old threads and replaced the pressure switch on the master cylinder. Pretty safe to assume he's read about the recall. And. the recall doesn't apply to 2003 or newer F53s anyway. Dusty probably has a 2004 or 2003 chassis. Yes, it's possible it's a 2002. Sure good to mention it, and be sure he's checked, but he probably has. Right, Dusty? Also, Dusty has a ~2004 vintage F53. The cruise system on it is common to 1999 to 2004 F53s. Older F53s has a similar system, but not the same. Newer ones are drive by wire and completely different. Keep that in mind Dusty as you think about your system.

RE: Another F53 Cruise Control Post - Help!!

I have fixed a few problems with mine. This thread has the wiring diagrams. The cruise module/servo has seven wires going to it. It's mounted near the top of the radiator on the driver's side. Fairly easy to unplug and check each wire for proper function with the diagrams. And the neither the headlight or cruise switches, or the cruise indicator light up, stock. You can't run the self test mentioned in the FTE thread, without an indicator light. But you can hook it up and the self test will run.

RE: Need someone knowledgable about Thor rvs 90s

RE: Blown Engine - 40" V10 Newmar

Well I like playing it safe, besides its best to never run at or near max for long term, I feel as experience with the same motor/trans as in this thread that 27,500 lbs should be max for this motor, this way there is some room for the motor not over working in the mountains and blowing a piston or head gasket, yes many have gone many miles at max load but they are riding on borrowed time for that weak link to blow.. Ford F650 and F750 are available with the V10. They have a GCWR of 37,000 pounds. 2018 F650/F750 brochure
