RE: Planning solar system for 1995 Fleetwood Southwind

Your coach was originally manufactured with 2 6 volt house batteries. Change back to the OEM 6 volt batteries for better performance and longer life. I have 500 watts of solar and a 30 amp MPPT charge controller on our 95 Bounder and it serves most of our needs while snow birding off grid. Richard

RE: Television - 12 volt or 120?

A lot of 12 volt TVs are junk and cost more than a comparable 120 volt name brand version. Which 12 volt TVs are junk? Can you give us some examples of failures and which components failed? I'm sure you've had some personal experiences with said failures. Please enlighten us. Richard

RE: Television - 12 volt or 120?

I suggest the 12 volt TV. If you want to watch TV, you just grab the remote and turn on the TV. Don't have to get up and turn on the inverter. And then forget to turn the inverter off when done. If you use an inverter, it's just another do-dad to go bad. I function on the "KISS" principle. "Keep It Simple Stupid". Richard

Following your posts is really starting to get interesting. I love it when folks like you think outside the box. Richard

RE: I don't think it will start

Probably a ground problem. Check all ground connections. Richard

RE: radio fuse

This is not after market radio ,I can’t find a fuse panel can anyone tell we’re it is?? there is a black box under the hood that looks like it could be the fuses but I can not get it open it has 4 little tab on it but I cant figure it out?? That black box is your battery control center. Twist tabs ¼ turn, pull out tab, pull off panel. There should be 2 fuse panels in your MH. One is somewhere by the left side of the dash. The other is located beside the circuit breaker panel. Richard

RE: Crank Case Filter replacement

To those that responded to the ISL 400 8.9L diesel crank case filter reply. This year the ISL 400 Crank Case filter is a "One piece" filter/housing. I picked it up at Cummins Salt Lake City UT. Just a mere $371.47 cents. (just a wee bit of an OUCH) The hard part was getting to the top of the engine, going down thru the bedroom floor and one of the screws to the metal cover was under the bed. (****) Now, for those of you who "dare" to take this simple-easy-rewarding task on, here's the deal. The housing comes apart! The "filter" comes out. You can buy the filter at 4 States Trucking (Joplin, MO) for a mere 90.99 cents. Free shipping on orders over $100.00 so I picked up and oil filter for 30 bucks. Bingo. Since this is very valuable information and to help pay for the original filter ($371.47) just send me 5 dollars and we'll call it even. Have fun! Is the CC filter any thing like this filter? GRIN Do I get ½ of the $5? Richard

FMCA Western Rally in Indio

Well Shucks! "The Western Area Rally held in January has been cancelled. The Feds are still using the Indio Fairgrounds and will not be releasing it until December 31st at the earliest. We were really disappointed but had no choice. Rick Ammerman F442485 WAFMCA Vice President Central" Richard

RE: radio fuse

Properly built MHs do not have unlabeled inline fuses. They have labeled fuses in a fuse panel. Richard

RE: Welding on a 1999 spartan chassis

I've stood in Tiffins' Red Bay weld shop and watched them weld on frames without them disconnecting any thing. Get your ground clamp close to the weld area and go for it. Richard

RE: Class A V-10 mileage

So, if well-engineered cars can have 8, 9, and 10-speed automatic transmissions in an effort to maximize fuel economy and enhance overall performance in the process, why can't motorhomes? The steep throttle plate angle required to move 20,000+ lbs down the road, would not allow 10 speed transmissions to achieve the higher gear. Richard

RE: New Ford engine and chassis changes

still can't understand it different engines rear ends and one is fulled loaded like racing a car and a loaded truck. Just a stupid race with stupid people if they can't match closer then that. very close to the qld 460 just board and better cam and electric system. 460's were were gas eaters like the new one but the 460 was a strong engine near bullet proof. Please look closer. The New 7.3 V8 is a whole new design, not even close to the old 460. I.E variable displacement oil pump, 6 bolt mains, completely redesigned heads, raised cam for shorter pushrods, the list goes on and on. Richard

RE: Ford F-53 Anti sway bar quick fix

You can do the CHF on the rear with no issues. The front CHF will need longer end links to help keep the links from having alignment issues. Richard

RE: Add digital thermostat to manual rooftop unit?

I did that mod to my 95 Bounder. You will get tired of listening to that mechanical contactor going clunk clunk clunk clunk. I elected to use Solid state relays in the AC. I have complete control of all functions from the thermostat. Fortunately my RV had 6 small control circuit leads from the AC to the circuit breaker panel. Didn't have to run wires through the ceiling. If you elect to try the solid state relays. Spend the extras $$ for a 50 amp relay or better for the compressor. The back EMF imposed on a smaller relay, when turning off, will make it fail. Richard

RE: Engine surge, generator

That surge is called a "lean roll". The carb is running lean because of an obstruction in the carb. Richard

RE: Refrigerator Interior fan ?

I use a Hard drive cooling fan with the two fan wired in series. Nice and quiet and clips onto the shelf. No need to mount on the cooling fins. All you need is a little circulation. Run it off of the 12 volt light wires. RIchard
