RE: Help! Onan 4K generator refuses to start and stay on

Disconnect the fuel hose between the output of the generator’s electric fuel pump leading to the carburetor. Then hold down on the generator’s STOP button. This should turn on the fuel pump’s priming function and cause fuel to run out of the pump. No fuel - probably a bad fuel pump.

You have something against going to a tire shop?

RE: Rear gear ratio

How was it possible to install a bigger cam. I can’t see how a bigger cam would fit into the existing bearing journals that hold the cam.The lobes that activate the valves/lifters are taller and longer duration of lift. That is a cam with modified cam lobe profiles - not a bigger cam!

RE: RV sitting for two to three weeks in 10 degree weather

As an owner of a motorhome you should know how to winterize it properly. Just use your owner’s manual and use common sense. If you are asking if you need to fill the 3 tanks with pink RV antifreeze you are not using common sense. If you don’t know how to winterize, please take your unit to an RV dealer and have them show you how to do it. Then the next important thing is make sure they show how to un-winterize it next spring. I had a friend that had a RV dealer winterize his motorhome and did not watch the procedure used. In the spring not knowing how to un-winterize it, he just started by filling his fresh water tank. He ended up flooding the whole interior with water.

RE: Winterizing a Leprechaun 260ds

Didn’t you get an owner’s manual describing the winterization process?

RE: motorized awnings

I don’t understand the desire to have a motorized awning. What do you do when those awnings refuse to retract on demand from their unfurled position?

RE: Generator/Shore Power Work, Battery Power Doesn't

Be more descriptive, what do you mean by “black tune looking things”? Can’t tell by looking at your photo. Its the black tube thing at the bottom of the picture. Its hooked to the silver thing in the corner and hooks to the thing on the right side of the picture. Its almost made of like ceramic. The guy told me its a "Ceramic resistor". My opinion at this point is that the SCR component in this converter has most likely failed due to an earlier reversed polarity house battery hookup. That black ceramic high temperature resistor may also have been damaged. But since the owner is apparently not familiar with basic electronic component terms, his ability to repair this converter is in doubt. The best solution may be just to have the whole system replaced with a new unit by a qualified RV repair shop.

RE: Carrying a Motorcycle with my 2000 Shasta Sprite?

Don’t do it. The Dana 70 rear axle on your E350 is only rated for a weight of 8500 lbs I believe. If your Class-C is 25’ or longer, you are probably near or over that weight limit already with your tanks full and other added items in your rear storage compartments. Check your rear axle weight at a truck scale. Adding 500 lbs to your rear hitch will (depending on your wheel base) will probably add 750 lbs weight to your rear axle and delete 250 lbs from your front axle.

RE: Class C Pros and Cons

We have been thinking about getting a Class C vs another TT. Here in Michigan Insurance is around $300-$400 a month for a Class C. One of us thinks a Class C is the one to go and I think a Class C might be more of a headache. We would be buying used, probably in the $40K price point(there abouts). Not sure if we want to tow a vehicle. Those of you with a Class C can you give me some pros and cons, any information. I know this is pretty vague, but trying to figure out if this is the way to go. Thank you in advance I have a 2002 Born Free 26’ Class-C that I insure with Progressive. I live in Iowa and my policy is $500,000 combined limit liability with $100 reducible collision and comprehensive coverage. My policy renewed this year for $507. That is for a full year’s coverage - not just a month!

RE: Salvage class C

You paid for full replacement insurance so I don’t see any reason not to just get another new unit and save the headaches (and trust me there will be complications) in rebuilding you damaged unit.

RE: Power boost for Ford 450 V10

I have a 2002 26’ Class-C with 4-speed automatic and 305 HP V10 pulling a 3000 lb toad. I have made many trips out thru the states of NM, AZ and CA with many hills that have 6% grades. My overhead cam V10 will easily rev to 4500 rpm in 2nd gear going up those hills at 50 mph. You just have to put up with the roar of that engine.

RE: Chassis battery

What does your chassis battery voltage indicate with engine off but with headlight switch turned ON? If below 10V your chassis battery is dead or badly discharged.

RE: Generator/Shore Power Work, Battery Power Doesn't

Click on the following link to see what the SCR(s) in your power center look like physically. This is probably not the actual SCR you may need but shows you what they look like. A thyrister is the same as a SCR. Typical SCR The small terminal is the gate, the large terminal on the top is the anode and and body of the SCR is the cathode terminal.

RE: Generator/Shore Power Work, Battery Power Doesn't

BrocNeal, Can you tell if there is just one SCR or two wired in parallel? If you can get one of the SCRs removed, look at the identification markings ( brand & P/N) on it. Should then be able to buy replacements. But first get the voltage readings on the 3 terminals of one of the SCRs so that it can be determined if they are really bad.

RE: Generator/Shore Power Work, Battery Power Doesn't

BrocNeal, OK I guess I can assume the replacement charger board did not fix the problem. Your system may have only one SCR or maybe two SCRs wired in parallel. A SCR is a 3 terminal device, an input terminal (anode), an output terminal (cathode) and a gate terminal. When connected to shoreline power, measure the DC voltage to ground on all three SCR terminals. The output terminal should be the same as your house battery voltage, 12.48 volts per a previous measurement you made. The voltage at the input terminal should be I believe around 18 volts, the same as the output voltage from the transformer module you previously measured. The voltage on the gate terminal will tell the story. If it is more than 1.0 volt higher than the SCR’s output terminal, then that or both SCRs are toast.
