RE: Welding on a 1999 spartan chassis

I've stood in Tiffins' Red Bay weld shop and watched them weld on frames without them disconnecting any thing. Get your ground clamp close to the weld area and go for it. Richard Exactly, I doutb any manufacture disconnects anything before welding on the chassis. There is too much of a chance of forgetting to reconnect things as the build goes on.

RE: Welding on a 1999 spartan chassis

Fire may be a bigger hazard than stray electrons. If you unplug things, make a list and a general location of the plugs for reconnecting. Take pictures, lots of pictures. Dielectric grease is you freind here. Remember, when you plug things back in, they may not come back like they should. Good luck.

RE: Ford V10

Bruce, the main point is the pistons are accelerating from 0 to 100 mph 84 times every second, at 5,000 rpm, and stopping, reversing direction, and acceleration to 100 mph again. This taking the stroke of the V10 in to account. At 3,000 rpm, this happens 50 times a second, but at a slightly slower speed. Your post points out staggering points, along with my post, its a wonder a engine lives at all.

RE: Ford V10

This is typical for 415 CIs pulling 20K pounds +. I would not go above 4,500 RPM. Some say the V10 is a high revving engine, but the computer limits the rpm to about 5,200. Try anticipating rises in elevation, and applying power in advance. If speed sags, us a lower gear. If you get to the top of the grade, you have it half made.

RE: Where did the Gas go ?

Pretty sure the 96 is a multi-port fuel injection system, and uses an high pressure in tank fuel pump. Still, check the oil just for grins and giggles.

RE: NM RV PARKS EFFECTIVE 4/6/20

Boy, this could get ugly fast. Quite a few RV parks in the Boise area, are full, and have been for 3 years or longer with full time residents. I asked on owner why, and was told that for 2 years they have been full because of the local economy. Look at their side, a monthly fee, every month, all year long. They must keep their lot clean and orderly, or they are required to vacate the area. I can see their side of it, a more or less steady income, all year long, instead of the hit or miss of the seasonal travels.

RE: Is it time to trip

I heard the FL gov issued orders requiring people flying in from NY & NJ must go into a 14 day quarantine.You can hear anything hanging around the outhouse. You cannot do that unless someone declares Martial Law.

RE: Is it time to trip

Ron, let us know how the Closing the State boarders work. There is only one way that can happen, but Americans have been Free for too long for many to put up with that.

RE: Is it time to trip

Since the original poster's signature was in WA, we should note that the state has closed all state campgrounds, all DNR and Forest Service land to camping. So, I guess the answer is you can't go camping even if you want to. Stay home, stay safeThis is a bitter pill to get down. This was a late announcement, and we wonder what has driven it. DNR, Federal forest Service land is not that crowded, especially this time of year, something about snow/mud. If you don't live in Washington, you haven't been exposed to our Governor's speeches, we really need some ADULT Super vision in our government...... Hey, if you can get out, it may not be a bad idea.

RE: Is it time to trip

Rule #1....People die. Rule #2....Doctors can't change rule #1. Am I doing what I can to keep from getting sick? You bet ya! Am I really going to stay in my house and avoid all outside human contact? Nope. I am still hopeful the company will release be from my current job so I can get to Stone Mountain campground and enjoy a week or so of peaceful relaxation. Well Bill, we should be well chastised. I guess we are not too Entitled, like others are.

RE: My 12 lights and other appliances do not work from battery

Your converter uses the same electrical paths as you batteries. If you have power when plugged in, but not when unplugged, the problem may be with your batteries?

RE: My 12 lights and other appliances do not work from battery

Tom, I think you may be on the right path. If you have 12 volts working when plugged in or the gen is running, the converter is supplying the 12 volt power. If you have 6 volt batteries for the house, it could be a bad connect between them, or a problem with one of the batteries. Start with the house batteries and verify you have the required voltages total and between them. Then work out from there. There are a number of different isolation/disconnect circuits on MHs. Try www.intellitec.com website for instructions on trouble shooting and actual circuits. Good luck

RE: 4-way Flashers not working

It could very well be your turn signal switch that is the problem. Replaced quite a few police car turn switches because they would set with their food on the brake for long periods of time. All the functions go through the switch, brakes, flashers, and turn signals. The contacts would over heat and melt the housings, resulting in either not contact, or contact all the time.
