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?

RE: 22.5 wheels

Yes, there were some OE coaches fit that way. Saved the manufacturers a few $$.

RE: Chevy V8 vs Ford V 10

Not sure it is reasonable to compare engines of different ages. There have been strides in both improved MPG and lower emissions over the years. Said another way, comparing an older V8 with newer V8 or V10 is kind of an apples to oranges comparison. Particularly true if you go back to the carbureted engines with 3 speed, non-locking torque converters vs modern engine/drivetrain.

RE: old diesel fuel in tank

Yes, fuel polishing (common on diesel boats because of the same storage issue) is an alternative. That will remove water, microbes, dirt etc. It will not "cure" diesel that has "turned". Smell fresh diesel, then smell from your fuel fill. We are not talking about a subtle difference! Yes, we FEEL you will be fine. But would sure hate for our long-distance opinion to lead you into an expensive repair.

RE: old diesel fuel in tank

Actually, your NOSE is a very good guide to the state of the fuel. If it still smells like diesel, you are good to go. If it has "turned" have it drained-- someone may be able to use in an oil-based furnace. If turned, certainly not worth doing damage to an expensive injection system. Tell us what your nose says.

RE: old diesel fuel in tank

Algae, I have read, only grows when water is in the tank. It grows at the water/fuel interface. No water in tank, no need for biocide. Water in tank, the tank should be drained and cleaned, then filled with fuel, and all fuel filters replaced. Correct. But (OK large BUT) the original post said the tank was stored HALF FULL for two years. Very likely there has been enough condensation to provide the water necessary for microbe growth. Storing with a full tank reduces condensation.

RE: Bubbles on the side of his RV

I would use a good two part epoxy as the "adhesive", not foam.

RE: old diesel fuel in tank

Biocide is something like Biobar JF.

RE: Alaska Sept 2022

I think everyone here is wondering how many cruise ships will make a stop in Canada if they don't have to! Doubt anyone who has visited either Vancouver or Victoria would question why the cruise ships stop there. Yes, part of it is legal requirement, but those are two very delightful destinations. Would hate to see them removed from the itineraries.

RE: Best Cleanser for Condenser Cleaning for AC?

Any box store will have aluminum-friendly condenser/evaporator cleaner. Rinse with fresh water.

Toe and caster both affect tracking.

RE: 2011 Tiffin Phaeton no hydraulics....Help!!!

So, do you know the "root cause" of the failure?

RE: 2011 Tiffin Phaeton no hydraulics....Help!!!

Check relay at the pump and connections including ground to it.
