RE: Onan 2600 generator

With only 71 hrs I doubt the spark arrester is clogged.

RE: TIVO Lifetime Subscription "Deal"

Lifetime subscription is tied to the box, not to the account. So if the box dies, or you upgrade you loose the Life Time subscription. I believe one can transfer the life time subscription to a new owner though. This may help when selling a used box.

RE: Tires B motorhome

Check out the Goodyear Wrangler Adventure with Kevlar side walls. There an AT tire but run as smooth/quiet as most highway tires. They come in Load range E with 2 layers of Kevlar. I have them, Load range D, on my Nissan V8 Pathfinder, and very happy with them. Not cheap, but a little less than the Michelins. Goodyear Adventure Review

RE: Onan 2600 generator

Maybe the high speed jet is clogged. Try and get the Seafoam, or other carb cleaner, directly into the carb.

RE: Onan 2600 generator

You should run it at least 2 hrs a month (continuously) at 1/2 to full load. Best guess is the carb is gummed up. The Seafoam may fix it. The carbs can't be rebuilt, and you will have to pull the gen-set to replace it. Also, use a Kill-a-watt meter to check volts, and make sure the frequency is at 60Hz. It may just be running too slow, so is stalling when it gets a little load. There is a screw adjustment on the carb linkage to speed up, or slow down the gen-set. Make sure the altitude adjuster is set correctly.

RE: equalizer, where to buy?

Yep, and combine it with a Direct Link brake controller, and you have one nice set up.

RE: equalizer, where to buy?

You should also take a look at the Blue Ox SwayPro. Easy to set up, and adjust, and the spring bars won't get grease all over you. Lots of RV.net members use, and recommend it, including me. Blue Ox SwayPro

RE: New to the class B world

I'm just quoting the owners manual. Onan just wants to make sure all the moisture is evaporated, and in some areas 30 minutes is probably not enough. Rust, over time, will eventually damage the generator. Some people never change their cars engine oil, and never have a problem, of course the next owner may.

RE: New to the class B world

A generator should be exercised 2 hrs continuously under a 1/2 to full load every month. This is to keep the carb. from gumming up, and the internal parts, like bearings, windings, etc. dry, and free of rust. With generators fewer hours is not a good sign. Of course if the gen-set is new, or recently rebuilt then the 50 hrs wouldn't be a concern.

Lynne, so nice to hear from you. I can put up with Davydd if it helps bring out the old crew. :B

RE: Max4 class b rv possible scam

Eko had a EquityNet page (fund me) their fund goal was $150,000, they only raised $27,000. Max4 does offer coach warranty service through second parties. "Our service program is one of the best in the business. We don’t limit you to an RV dealer network, so you can take your Max4 to any of our 140 authorized motor home repair facilities nationwide and have the technician call us for troubleshooting assistance. For issues covered by our conversion warranty, we pay for any repairs directly to the authorized service center right then and there, so you can get the service done and be on your way." As for the 4 (AWD) wheel drive issue, it looks like their info is from Europe, probably just copied with out fact checking for their questionable web site.

RE: Max4 class b rv possible scam

Geesh, let's not turn this into an LLC thread, there's a hundred of those already.

RE: Max4 class b rv possible scam

"Eko USA, Inc. is a Dallas, TX based start up manufacturer of the all new Eko™ Compact Motorhome – the world's first green motorhome." There web site is still up, but not updated since 2013. Max 4 Class B Dallas TX. Based. One interesting (suspicious) thing. They tout the Ford Eco Boost, but the only generator option is propane. I wouldn't be surprised if the same people weren't involved in both. Looks like a vacant field on Google Earth. Both LLC's out of Montana.

RE: Help-Newb looking for a shop or DIY resources

There is a Do it yourself forum here at RV.Net. I suggest you try asking your questions over there.

RE: Tires

"Climate and tire wear Water acts as a lubricant. Tires that often travel over wet pavements can show up to 30 percent longer treadwear than tires that run only on dry pavements. Temperature is also a factor. When the temperature increases, so do treadwear rates. For example, when roads are wet, fleets typically obtain better tread-weari n the fall and winter verses spring and summer. Driving technique plays a major role in maximizing tire life, but so does where the vehicle is driven." This is one reason we get so many different opinions regarding a tire brand, and tire ware.. One person, living in a cold area, may get 60K and another living in a hot area 30K. Here in AZ we can count on about 30% less tread ware, and recommendations are replacing tires every four year.

RE: Inverter fuse popping with A/C

Some Pet Smarts, and other pet stores have doggie day care. If you can find one it is a great solution instead of kenneling.

RE: Inverter fuse popping with A/C

Even with a generator, it would be irresponsible, and/or illegal to leave pets in a motor vehicle that relies on an A/C to keep them cool. What if the gen-set fails to restart, or in your situation the batteries fail. Also, in many, or now most states, it is illegal to leave pets unattended in a motor vehicle. I'm sure others will post and explain the difficulties of running an A/C unit off of a couple batteries, and solar panels. You want to keep the van cool, but you need to park in the sun for the solar panels. :h

RE: installation and recommendation for brake controller

IMO the Direct Link is a better brake controller than the Prodigy. Plugs into your TV's computer. "DirecLink uses exactly the same computer network that controls your car, truck or SUV so you can count on this proven technology. By linking the data of your tow vehicle to your trailer brake system, both vehicles work seamlessly together." Direct Link
