RE: Motorhome rocks excessively while driving down the highway

You need to crawl under and see if there are any worn parts. Look closely at sway bar bushings. Polyurethane bushings will stiffen up the sway control at very reasonable price and the labor is easy.

RE: Motorhome rocks excessively while driving down the highway

What chassis? What age? How many miles on it?
wolfe10 02/20/20 11:38am Class A Motorhomes

There should be only ONE interconnect between the batteries (positive of one to negative of the other). And the wires from batteries to the RV-- The positive should come off one battery positive The negative should come off the other battery negative. Neither wire to house from either battery's interconnection.

RE: C12 starting batteries

That Caterpillar Corp could not give you the information is EMBARRASSING!!! I can tell you that applications with the Cummins M11 which is close to the size of your engine use 3 group 31 batteries. But, bottom line, if connections are clean and tight and you need to use the boost switch and with the boost switch the engine turns over and starts as it should, you do not have enough amps in the chassis battery bank.

Caterpillar 12 liter diesel. And, your Caterpillar owners manual or a call to Caterpillar will tell you the minimum CCAs.

RE: ??? MOLD ??? Damp Area. ??? SOLUTION ???

Using for furnace for heat maybe along with something else will help reduce moisture. NO, warming up the air will reduce the RELATIVE HUMIDITY. Yes, warm air will hold more moisture than cold air. It will have absolutely zero effect on the amount of moisture in the air. When the RV cools back down, humidity will be exactly the same.

RE: ??? MOLD ??? Damp Area. ??? SOLUTION ???

A dehumidifier would definitely be my first recommendation but also find that ceramic heaters help remove moisture. Run both when RV sits long. ceramic heaters, or electric or gas heat will lower the RH as it raises temperture, but it won't remove any moisture. Lower RH means less likely to have condensation. Correct.

RE: Solar energy when battery disconnect is applied

You need to VERIFY whether your solar is wired directly to batteries or is "down-stream" of the battery disconnect switch. It could be wired either way.

RE: ??? MOLD ??? Damp Area. ??? SOLUTION ???

Another viable option is to buy a 30 pint home-type dehumidifier. That will remove up to 30 pints of water a day. We do exactly that when storing our motorhome and sailboat. Set it to 50% and forget about it. No mold or mildew ever.

RE: Unsuccessfully trying to upgrade my exhaust brake

Now I'm trying to find the PXRB that replaces it. I provided my engine number (46248452) and have found nothing on the exhaust brake, original OR PXRB. You talked with PacBrake Corp?

RE: Need some advice

Particularly if you like to cook/eat in, do not rule out Air B&B's. We have done that in the U.S, Australia, Costa Rica and Chile over the last two year. We get really tired of hotels and eating out all our meals.

RE: Fridge Thermistor Replacement Question UPDATE (Fixed)

.... and the thermistor to high on the right and it still went just under freezing. :) High and to a side are WARMER areas in the refrigerator and will cause it to run more/operate at a cooler temperature. Likely not enough to cause your symptoms, but they can affect fine-tuning of the refrigerator temperature.

RE: Need some advice

Proper size rental vehicle. Ice chest to carry food from Air B&B to Air B&B. We ate the vast majority of our meals in for the two months this summer in Australia. Suspect if you price it out, less than two RV's. And, our mass transit systems are NOT up to European standards. You will need a vehicle to see the sites.

RE: Interesting video

Sachs is one of the largest suppliers of OE shocks in the world. Suspect not particularly high tech for most OE applications. But, pulling shock PN off one would give us that information.

RE: Need some advice

Guess, I will offer another option: Rent car and air B&B's. With 4 people, a viable option. We have done that (with my brother and his wire, so 4) all over the world. Last long trip was 2 months in Australia this past summer. 7,500+ KM in rent car. 21 different Air B&B's. We considered two RV's but they would have been more money and less flexibility than a car and 2 bedroom houses/apartments. We have also done this in Chile, Costa Rica, etc. While I love RV's, they are not always the best choice for overseas travel.

RE: 95 Bounder 34J--rear leafs--shop recommendation

I would suggest that restoring proper spring rate (and therefore ride height) WILL improve ride. Shocks are back to mid travel, far less bottoming out, etc. I think we can all agree that the only bad answer is to do nothing and continue to bottom out the suspension over the smallest bumps.
