RE: Diesel repair

Need to break out exactly what you need, OR what are the symptoms. Things like fuel filters, oil filters, oil, perhaps air filter elements, belts, cleaning front of CAC are quite different than fuel injection system work or internal engine work.

RE: Generator and AC help? Rookie needs help.

To clarify, there is no "intake" on the roof that would move air from roof (and potentially exhaust) to the interior. Roof A/C's take air from the inside, cool it and return it to the inside.

RE: Serpentine belt

With a rear radiator, really easier to have someone above AND someone below to get the belt onto the correct grooves of the pulleys. And, let us know if you do have a separate V belt for the water pump, or like some late model C7's the serpentine belt drives it as well. Remember, the C7 is the evolutionary successor to the Caterpillar 3116 and 3126, both with separate V belts for the water pump.

RE: Serpentine belt

Because of the higher heat where the belts are located in a diesel pusher, I would strongly suggest 10 years is twice what I would run. And very likely on the Caterpillar C7 you have a separate V belt that drives only the water pump. It is NOT on an automatic tensioner, so tension needs to be checked and adjusted occasionally. And, replace this belt when you replace the serpentine belt.

RE: frustrated 02 Monaco owner

All correct answers. You have the 3000 transmission and checking fluid level from the shift pad (ONLY when transmission up to operating temperature) is super easy.

RE: Triple digit heat! Generator won't run

Reset and set the CBs. Check the voltage at the ATS to determine if you have gen power on the input and output. Really appreciate you knowledge and willingness to help. As someone that is not nearly as proficient as you, your abbreviations sometimes leaving me scratching my head. My problem not yours I know, but if you could maybe spell it out for those of us mechanically challenged it would be much appreciated. Again thanks for all your help over the years.

RE: Batteries not charging {Resolved}

A "Pass through" is any 120 VAC outlet that can be powered by the inverter (i.e. you have 120 VAC even without shore power or generator). Galley, microwave and TV are common choices. The "Pass through" is when there is an external source of 120 VAC (shore power or generator) the inverter does not "invert" which takes power from the batteries, Instead, it just "passes through" that 120 VAC and also automatically start charging the batteries. Reading your inverter/charger's owners manual will help.

RE: Batteries not charging {Resolved}

Actually, that model is an INVERTER/CHARGER, so it should charge the batteries when it receives a source of 120 VAC from shore power or generator. Does the "pass through" feature work (do outlets powered by the inverter work when the inverter is turned off? This would confirm that 120 VAC is getting to the inverter/charger.

RE: Coolant change on 96 Monaco Exec Cummins M11

Not a difficult job. Yes, you do need to determine total system capacity and make sure you have a diesel-compatible coolant. If you want the step by step instructions, let us know.

RE: Triple digit heat! Generator won't run

First, if you have an ATS (Automatic Transfer Switch) which I suspect you do have, no damage was done by plugging in assuming the ATS was functional.It's job is to only allow ONE source of 120 VAC to the main breaker panel-- either shore or generator. The generator has two breakers on the generator itself. Turn them off an back ON. If generator is running (i.e. not out of fuel, etc) exactly what 120 VAC things are working and not working?

RE: Sub 35 foot Well Built Motorhome?

Looked at a 2001 Winnebago Journey 32' for a friend. Looked pretty well constructed on Freightliner chassis My concerns were: Basement air-- no longer in production. Smaller transmission (2000, not 3000). Did not find chassis specs for the 2001, but here are Freightliner chassis specs: https://cdn.fccchq.com/specsheets/5b7abfb4cf1da258f28db107/2002-Winnebago-Journey.pdf

What brand???

RE: "303" Survey

Good on rubber (tires and rubber gaskets) and vinyl (vinyl stripes).

RE: 2006 F-f3 chassis air not working

Yup, default position with no vacuum is DEFROST.

Excellent site for wind predictions. Can search by location, day and even day part. https://www.ventusky.com/?p=35.0;-100.4;4&l=wind-10m

RE: Ball joints?

But, a good question none the less: Can the HD ball joints for the P chassis be substituted for the lighter duty ones? Any modifications needed?

RE: I need a RV mentor

Al, How about let's start over. You have succeeded in attacking quite a number of people here who, over the year have been very patient and helpful with their answers. We look forward to assisting you with your questions. How can we help?

RE: I need a RV mentor

And, if you already own a motorhome, let us know what it is. A mentor on a gas rig will be quite different than a mentor on a diesel pusher.

RE: Generator - LP or Diesel?

If you intend to put thousands of hours on your generator a diesel should hold up better. Most people don't put enough hours on a unit to wear out either type. Diesel is much easier to find and fill than propane. Propane will likely have a bit cleaner and better smelling exhaust. Probably the most accurate assessment.

RE: Air conditioner woes

This should NOT be run through your inverter. Per your post, 27 amps times 120VAC= 3,240 watts. Even assuming 100% inverter efficiency, this is WAY overloading a 2000 watt inverter. Even on shore power, very much doubt the pass through relay is happy with that start up load.
