RE: Re-sealing Winnebago radius roof in "J" channel

I would NOT consider 5200. Tooooooo permanent. 4200 perhaps. But, would sure look at adhesion properties of it vs the Winnebago-recommended product. And would likely ask Winnebago their thoughts before venturing into a brave new world.

RE: Portable Wind Turbine as a power supplement?

This ECO-WORTHY solar power kit is amazing because it combines the power generation capabilities of a wind turbine with the sun-catching skills of a solar panel. With such a wide range of operations, this kit can offer the user with a virtually constant source of electricity. It's ideal for traveling to places that aren't as windy but receive a lot of sun, or vice versa. A little short on FACTS. Would like to see a wind speed vs output. The 400 watts they advertise is produced at 13 MPS= 29 MPH. WOW.

RE: Xantrex Freedom 458 Plugged in 24/7 or Float Charger?

Yes, if properly programmed and you check battery water level occasionally, many of us DO leave them on 24/7.

RE: Cummins engine barely starts

Before spending $$$ on someone else, check both positive and ground connections between chassis battery and engine. Also, while someone else is cranking the engine, monitor chassis battery voltage at the battery and then at the starter with your DIGITAL VOLTMETER.

RE: Hellwig Sway Bars on 2021 24-footer

Track Bar? What is that? ..... Track bar= Panhard rod. It goes transverse (side to side) with one end connected to the chassis, the other to the axle. It allows for full up/down movement but minimizes side to side movement.

RE: Nissan versa flat towing

What year? Manual or automatic???

RE: No shore power. 33c Sunova

Bottom line is that you will have to pull out your VOLTMETER and see exactly where you go from "power to no power" on that line. We can speculate until the cows come home, but 15 minutes with a voltmeter will give you the FACTS.

RE: biobar jf

Hey, Wolfe, do you have any idea why the bottle of biobar includes the disclaimer against using it in 'on road vehicles'? Total speculation on my part, but it MAY adversely affect the new diesels with the much more complex emission systems.

RE: biobar jf

Yup, add the biocide NOW. If you have a long filler tube, follow with 4-5 gallons of diesel to make sure the biocide gets down into the tank. The biocide would do you any good if it is stuck in the filler neck or hose to the tank.

RE: Any Caterpillar experts here?

Brett Wolfe is the Cat expert on here. Hopefully he reads your post. I am pretty good on the "care and feeding" of Caterpillar engines (and Cummins for that matter), but not the electronic troubleshooting. Agree-- install the new ECU, reverify good solid connections, particularly the ground wire to block and THEN see what you have.

RE: Allison Transmission leak

Sorry, but I am not able to view the images. Is the leaking bolts the ones that hold the filter covers? If so, absolutely, only apply the torque specified in the Allison filter kit instructions. I don't have them in front of me but recall it is more than 45 inch-lbs. But the caution about over-torquing steel bolts in to aluminum is right on.

RE: Inverter question

If you are considering only two "outlets" able to be powered by the inverter, consider just wiring the inverter OUTPUT to two outlets. What is amp draw to charge your eBikes? What size battery bank do you have? Wonder if generator run time to recharge the batteries will be any less than generator run time to charge the eBikes directly-- neither charging nor inverting process are 100% efficient, so you are loosing efficiency at both ends.

RE: Inverter question

Indeed, for the sake of your electrical system, if you do decide to plug your shore power cord into the inverter OUT, turn off all the breakers that you do not want to power from your inverter. It would be easy for someone to forget and turn on your roof A/C. NOT a good idea! Much, much safer to either wire the inverter OUT to a sub-panel or directly from inverter OUT to just those outlets you want powered by the inverter.

RE: Air Bag issue

We have no idea what part is leaking. Is it the actual air bag itself? Unusual at that young age unless damaged by road hazard, etc. The air fitting to it? The ride height valve? Other?
