RE: building new campground

Just noticed you are in Ilion, NY. Used to work for Univac, their main plant was there. Are you planning on keeping the RV park open year round or closing in the winter?

RE: Getting very frustrated with this site!

It is a PITA but I have found out that it is a bogus reply. Your response actually shows up. I get it all the time. I hit the back button and all is good. I've seen the same thing. A few days ago IRV2 was down or extremely slow all day. Things happen.

RE: New to the board and Class A scene

Let us know how you like the view out the big windshield. That impressed us when we went to a class A.

RE: Picking up our new rig

First trip will be to the Reno Air Races, Then on to Hawthorn NV to a Pyrotechnics Convention. Hope you have reservations somewhere. That's a real popular attraction.

RE: 8.1 Engine Running Hot

Ok great, didn't see that. I've replaced my thermostat twice but wasn't having any problems, just did it as a preventive measure when I had the hoses, belts and coolant changed. Keep us in the loop, hope you find the problem soon.

RE: 8.1 Engine Running Hot

Keep in mind that the temp gauge on the Workhorse is not linear. In fact, it does not move AT ALL from 188-224, but instead stays at the 1/2 way point on the gauge. It rises from 105 to 188, then STAYS AT 1/2 ALL THE WAY TO 224. Then (and only then) the needle starts to rise again. So if you noticed the gauge actually rising above the halfway point, that means that your engine temp was already exceeding 225. If it got to the beginning of the amber area, it was at 260+ degrees! My fan clutch kicks in (at any speed) when my temp reaches about 208, and will immediately drop the temps to about 204, where the clutch drops back out. I run over Chiraco Grade in SoCal in 100 degree heat pulling 3 PWC and never have seen the gauge go over 1/2. I run with a UltraGauge connected that shows my engine temperature and you are exactly right. When he said his gauge was moving up to the red I knew it was really high and hence asked him if he heard the loud roar of the fan clutch engaging. He hasn't replied to that question yet so I hope things are OK with him.

RE: Radio display

Put a strip of black electrical tape over that advertising. Those kind of things drive me crazy.

RE: 8.1 Engine Running Hot

Did the main engine fan clutch engage which produces a very loud roar? When on high way fan isn't needed so clutch fan isn't the problem. Poor water flow between water pump or radiator or head gasket problem. Hmmmm... Come on out west and climb a few mountains at 95 degrees and I'll guarantee you need the engine fan clutch to engage on an 8.1 engine. Do you have an 8.1 engine? so what you say once water temp goes down to it's coolest point you think the fan is going to cool the the engine some more Your probably one's who also think taking out thermostats make them run cooler to.... Once the coolant temperature goes back down the fan clutch disengages. Still trying to find out if his fan clutch even engages. If it doesn't that could be part of the reason it is overheating.

RE: 8.1 Engine Running Hot

Does the main fan clutch ever engage with a loud roar? It will normally engage at about 201 degrees and roar until the temperature drops back down. If you temperature dial is going up to the red area that's around 235 degrees. At least that's what mine was was I use a scanguage that tells the actual temperature.

RE: stupid move

RE: RVCampsite only 30amp - can we run AC in the Class A

Yes you can run one A/C with a 30 amp dogbone connector. I've done it several times.

RE: California hwy 120 between 395 & 6

Google maps says it is closed from October to May. Looks like it would be an interesting drive.

RE: ONAN 5500 Grand Marquis fuel pump & filter

I'm curious why you are changing them. What kind of problem are you seeing and also how many hours are on the generator.
