RE: Tire size

As long as all tires on an axle are the same, no problem with different ones on different axles.

RE: Air brake issues

What chassis? There have been some failures of the "communication box" between air pressure sender and dash gauges.

RE: State Hwy 1 Monterrey to Colombia

How about 85 Libre, then NW 2 to Columbia Crossing. Been a couple of years, but that worked for us. Yes, longer, but completely avoided downtown Nuevo Laredo and Laredo.

RE: State Hwy 1 Monterrey to Colombia

Enjoy. Fort Davis SP is one of our favorites. But, then again, so is San Miguel de Allende!

RE: Taos and Santa Fe with 37’ Taos motorhome

Yup in those wonderful places, you have to understand that the downtown was laid out many centuries ago. Do not expect parking downtown for a motorhome. But, there is some public transportation and certainly Uber. DON'T MISS THEM. BTW, we spend summers in Angel Fire, just east of Taos. 8,400'+ makes for a very nice summer climate.

RE: Parking brake light and alarm comes on and cameras turn off

Please tell us what RV and what chassis you have.

RE: Weigh Station ??

Like most of the others, in a quarter million miles in diesel pushers, never stopped at one and was never asked to. We are not a commercial vehicle.

RE: Replacement battery caps

Yup any place that sells batteries will have the old/core batteries where they can pull one for you.

RE: Any Allison transmission general info ?

I certainly have no problem with fluid analysis and my last one was also by JG. But, if how old the fluid and/or filters are is unknown, just go ahead and service it. Same for all fluids. Then you have a baseline for establishing PM schedule.

RE: Any Allison transmission general info ?

If 6 speed, 3000 series transmission (like MD3060) 4th is direct, 5th and 6th are OD's. There will be a plate on the driver's side of the transmission with model and serial number-- good to have when ordering parts/filters as there are both shallow and deep pans. Torque converter is locked in "high 2nd" and all higher gears. The lock up in second is at higher engine speed and feels like a mini-shift. Servicing is pretty straightforward. Get the filter kit from an Allison dealer. It has filters, gaskets and instructions. Not a difficult job. Then get a 5 gallon pail from the Allison dealer of Transynd 668 (the newest fluid that replaces earlier fluids).

RE: Any Allison transmission general info ?

Allison 6 speed 3000 series electronic transmission or Mechanical 4 speed. Both were used with the Cummins B engine, as were some 5 speed 1000 and 2000 series.

RE: Diesel pusher guys …which boost and EGT gauges ?

If stock, no need to go there. It is only when adding extra fuel to the Cummins factory settings that one has to monitor them. And, if electronic engine, the ScanGauge D is a good choice for most monitoring functions including boost(not EGT, as that requires installation of a new sensor in the exhaust manifold).

RE: Any Allison transmission general info ?

For advice, PLEASE tell us what Allison transmission you have or better yet, fill out your signature so we know what you have (year, coach, engine, trans info really help with accurate answers).

RE: House battery charging by alternator

Without extra equipment the alternator won’t do a good job of charging your house batteries. Upgrade your solar system to charge them. Sorry, I have to disagree. While solar is a worthwhile upgrade for those who spend time "off the grid", the alternator SHOULD charge both battery banks. To the OP: You need to troubleshoot your charging system. Do you have a diode-based battery isolator or a solenoid-based battery isolator?

RE: 8R19.5 birgstone R187 metro radial tire

Two problems-- expensive and OLD. You will replace RV tires based on age, not tread wear.

RE: What Chassis do I have

I don't follow. What has a converter to do with the engine and what does the engine have to do with a converter? I believe the reference is to the CATALYTIC CONVERTER, not electric converter (120 VAC to 12 VDC).

RE: Texarkana repair shop advice

Are you talking about Texarkana Texas or Arkansas? That may help folks with location Probably won't matter to the OP, as center of one to center of the other is less than 2 miles. One of those towns that span the state border.

RE: Texarkana repair shop advice

Assume this is a Workhorse P chassis. There ARE options to new air bags. Look on Hendersons lineup in Grants Pass Oregon. But driving with the front end that low means it is WAY out of alignment and will quickly wear out the tires. Sorry, not familiar with shops in the Texarkana area.

RE: 93 Vectra

Yes, very common for the air compressor to receive air from the intake manifold. It is already filtered (main engine air filter), pressure raised by the turbo and cooled off by the CAC. Much better than any other option for supplying it with air.

RE: 93 Vectra

You don't mention what engine you have, but suspect a Cummins B 5.9 liter diesel. Lots of owners here with that engine. Very widely used engine. And, if the hose from intake manifold to air compressor is missing/broken, you should have a SIGNIFICANT loss of boost.
