RE: Where did the Gas go ?

I'm cashed strapped , don't have a $1000 too drop the 70+ gallon tank and install a new in tank pump ( there goes the stimulus check , IF it ever arrives ) I'm going to try blowing compressed air back thru the main fuel line, I might even try a test, connecting to The generator pickup tube, My biggest priority until now, was to get airlifts installed at the drive axle There is a check valve in the in-tank fuel pump that helps hold fuel line pressure when the engine is turned off. You should not be able to blow back into the fuel tank through the engine fuel line. The generator fuel line is a totally different fuel pick up delivery system. Richard

RE: Generator start/stop switch

Unplug and plug the remote switch connector on the side of the generator several times. That connector is a known issue. Richard

RE: Dicor vs. Eternabond

Dicor has been puninshing RVers for many years. If it was quality, you wouldn't need to check it for crack every 6 months. You wouldn't tolerate Dicor's lack of quality on your sticks & bricks. Check the Sikafles site for a quality product that matches your needs. As an example, Sikaflex 715 is for EPDM RV roofs. Richard

RE: Where did the Gas go ?

On you old in tank fuel pump is a sock that is probably choked with junk from the tank. On the left side fuel rail is the fuel pressure regulator that sent the excess fuel back to the OEM tank. Richard

RE: Cheap way to isolate and charge gel cell- relay or diode ?

Diodes will have at least 0.6 voltage drop. Not a good idea. If you continue with you plan, use a isolator relay. Richard

RE: Not Bored...............

Was waiting for the third picture to be of the broken cell phone as you backed out over it. Would have been my luck. Happy motorin My flip phone stays on the end table when I'm thrashing about with tools in my hands. It's just a tether for my DW to find me. GRIN Richard

RE: Not Bored...............

I had the all the differential bearings and one axle replaced by a Ford Truck service center a couple years ago and I want to caution others to be aware of something some shops will pull on you. I had assumed that since the shop was a "Ford" truck repair center that the parts that would be replaced with genuine Ford parts but no. They replaced the old parts with after market off branded stuff that I never heard of just to save some money for themselves and hoping I wouldn't notice. And I didn't notice until I got home and reviewed the invoice which was too late. So what I'm saying is ask before you commit to a repair and make sure you get the quality parts you were expecting. Didn't mean to hijack this subject but I thought people needed to know. RLS7201 nice job I wish I had the talent to do what you did. Thanks for the compliment. I could have purchased bearings and seals with the Ford name and part # number them. But Ford don't make bearing & seals, they just relabel other manufactures bearings and seals. I did use Timkem bearings and seals. Richard

Not Bored...............

The weather here in Beauty downtown Gladstone, MO finally warmed up enough to go tackle the Biennial brake maintenance on my 95 F53 Ford chassis. Pulled the front tires, removed the caliper slide pins, cleaned the mounting surfaces and pins, greased everything with synthetic grease and reassembled. Check wheel bearings. All was good. Sucked out all the old brake fluid from the master cylinder with my turkey baster and refilled with new DOT 4 fluid. Got the wife to pump the brake pedal while I worked the bleeder. Installed the tires. Front brake maintenance done. Pulled rear tires and then I got into trouble. Checked the LR hub for play and found a bunch. OH NO! Pulled the axle and bearing nuts and found a bad outer bearing. The grease sparkled with metal particles. The whole rear end will have to come apart, cleaned and new bearings installed. Fortunately I have set up a few ring and pinions in my younger days, so I can do all the necessary work. Setting up the pinion depth and bearing preload shims can be time consuming. After the pinion is set, the ring gear backlash and bearing preload has to be set. Again time consuming. Lucky for me I still have all the measuring devices from my days as a machinist. Now that the rear end and hubs are back in place I had the wife pump the brake pedal again and all new brake fluid is in the rear calipers. New 75-140 synthetic rear end grease installed, tires installed and MH is back on the ground. Now all I have to do is the test drive. Where did I lay my cell phone and the road service phone #? Below is a picture with the pinion installed with new bearings. Second picture is the old bearings, seals and left over new shims.

RE: 24 volt solar panel

I have 505 watts of 24 volt panels on the roof with a 30 amp Rouge MPPT controller. The higher voltage panels allow for smaller gauge wire from the panels to the controller. As already mentioned, all you need with that panel is a MPPT controller. Richard

RE: The newer wingman upgrade info

It is absolutely NOT cosmetic! The poster has no idea what he's talking about. $30 or less is reasonable but don't pay $60. Are you saying the difference between the old wingman and the new one is other than cosmetic? If so, what is the difference. Explain to me why I have no idea what I'm talking about. Give us details.

RE: The newer wingman upgrade info

It's just cosmetic. The Wingman is still just some directors in front of the driven element. Richard

RE: Chewed Part and Alternator Question 96 Fleetwood with ford

If you alternator is truly flucting after using a voltmeter. I suspect the voltage regulator is failing. It is mounted on the back of the alternator and is easily changeable without removing the alternator. If you elect to remove the alternator, the bottom bolt will be corroded in the aluminum hole and will require considerable effort to get out. Once loose the bolt will slide very tightly next to the radiator fan shroud, but will come out with effort. You have already been given good advice on your charcoal canister. Richard

RE: Rebuilding my eu2000i... (never did this before)

To add to what Roger10378 said. The cupping that you saw on the exhaust valve would cause the exhaust valve clearance to diminish, thus a loss of compression. Did any of the shops run a compression test? Richard

RE: leveling jacks

The HWH hydraulic jacks on my 25 year old MH have been flawless except for the hoses that I replaced 5 years ago. My jacks are manual control. The automatic jacks do offer some electrical failure from time to time. Richard

RE: AC—oil or no oil?

Sealed bearings are sealed, so oiling accomplishes little. Oil is the wrong lubricant for a bearing in any case, so once the seal fails the motor’s days are numbered unless you remove the seal and grease the bearing regularly. Let's make sure we are talking about the "care and feeding" of the same type of bearing/bushing fan motors. I am not aware of any RV roof A/C's with sealed bearings. All I have worked on have sleeved bushings. Agree, one with sealed bearings would be an upgrade and would be treated entirely differently. A link to one for an RV roof A/C would be appreciated. Sealed ball/roller bearings would NOT be an upgrade. Note how all shaft bearings used in a home environment are sleeve bearings for a reason. Ball/roller bearings are noisy beyond belief in a home environment. Look at everything that has a shaft in your home. It is supported with sleeve bearings. Ball/roller bearings make so much noise and vibration that they can not be used in a printing press, as the vibrations shows up in the print. Richard

RE: Taaadaaa! Took the plunge. Airbags on the Class A

The rear of my 95 32H Bounder rides really nice since the air bag install in 2010. Have you scaled your 34j with 100 gallons of water on board? That 833 lbs will put you over weight. Richard
