RE: Low air alarm in 2000 Monaco Diplomat

Jackie , you are correct , the alarm should not be sounding with the key off . That sounds like a stuck relay to me ' I had the same alarm one time when we owned an Endeavor It was maddening so I stopped and went looking for the cause I didn't find the cause but I did find a relay in the front lower elect compartment that stopped the noise when I unplugged it . Later I plugged the relay back in but the alarm / noise didn't return and I never had the persistent alarm again . Maybe the relay was stuck I don't know . On our Monaco coaches the annunciator / alarm is activated by more things than just low air although I can't say what those other things are . Here is a link , if it will work , that may help . Ray

RE: Replace my aquahot 375 help

Many/most RV techs have no idea how to repair an Aqua Hot . Why not contact Roger Berke and see if he knows of a tech near you ? I doubt your needs replacing , maybe it can be converted to diesel .

If the boiler has frozen and burst then it may need replacing . If it just doesn't heat , those things can be repaired . Are you up to doing repairs yourself ? Ray

RE: 2006 dynasty monacco

Don't be embarrassed these machines are complicated and we are all learning On both sides you will find a small door approx. 6" sq . They both need a key to open . Inside those fuel doors the cap screws on and should be on a chain or cable . Many of us tilt the coach a little with our air leveling so we can fill the tank better . Don't try fill both side or have the opposite cap off you can have diesel running out on the ground . Our engines use the same oil as the big trucks 15/40 . Ray

RE: engine antifreeze

Drain the overflow tub and the radiator and replace it with regular anti freeze from Walmart. Or have Walmart do it for you. Not on my worst day. You have either a Fleet Guard fully formulated which has the SCA's in it or you have an OAT coolant depending on the year of your rig. A call to Freightliner can tell you which they put in when built. Freightliner wont be able to help him , his coach is built on a Roadmaster chassis . I bought Peak million mile heavy duty diesel coolant at Wal-Mart approx. 12.50 per gal . Cummins/Fleetgard has decided that coolants are actually compatible . So it appears that now you can drain the old coolant , blow out what you can and refill .

RE: 1999 holiday Rambler Endeavor

Doug on my Windsor the slide control is in the right rear( pass side ) electrical bay . If you have an electrical bay back there yours may be there also . It is just a board with relays and a 5 amp fuse which can stop the slide . Have you made sure all the bay doors are closed and sure the switches are operating and not bent . Ray

RE: Cummins 5 year old synthetic oil with 1000 miles - change ?

Actually I feel like it is ok but who really knows , 5 yrs is a long time . I used to think cancer was a death sentence and 75 was to old to care but I don't feel like that anymore now 75 is quite young and he may have a lot of traveling yet to do . Not telling you to do this but I would give my friend a 100 bucks and say maybe this will help . Like SOBOVA asked how about the tires ? Those may be the real concern . Ray

RE: 1999 Monaco Windsor Dash air/heat trouble

Oldave rereading your reply the vacuum generator may be what I was looking at. I did find a bad connection on it but I never fired up the coach after nothing ran after I repaired the connection. I'll put it back together and run the coach to see if its repaired. I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks Right Robbie you'll need to run the engine because the vacuum gen uses air pressure . Finding the bad connection will probably fix your problem . Good going . Ray

RE: 100K miles

2001 did not use the same trailing arms Per Source Engineering. The bad one started in 2002 Thanks Good news , Thanks Obviously I didn't know that , actually I thought all the Knights of that era were the same . I would still scoot under with a strong flashlight and look them over myself , make sure there was no cracks . I believe at one time there was pictures on the IRV2 Monaco forum

RE: 100K miles

100k just shows it was put together right , didn't blow up during break in . You probably know about the recall on the rear trailing arms for your chassis . Chances are the arms have already been replaced , so an alert just in case . The original Monaco is long gone so you will have to pay for it yourself . Source Engineering makes replacements .

RE: 1999 Monaco Windsor Dash air/heat trouble

Robbie , Mine has a little black plastic 12v pump above the gen . On some coaches mostly earlier models they used a vacuum generator powered by compressed air blowing over a venturi . I believe it is a metal box with an air and vacuum hose attached . Should be mounted on the firewall above the Onan gen . They are very reliable as there is not much to go bad , maybe the elect air valve or stopped up inside . Cleaning should take care of that .

RE: Alternative satellite option?

We use our roof top in motion dome all the time , traveling or parked . Now I don't park in the trees if I want satellite and the RV parks often ask if I have satellite . If they don't ask I tell them , there is seldom a problem and on that pare occasion I have a dish on a tripod that I can set up if we want it We will be sad to see in motion cease if in fact that happens but I don't think that will actually comes about . No doubt some changes will happen soon which will most likely be the end of SD ( standard definition ) reception requiring at least up graded receivers . BTW I'm speaking Direct TV here .

RE: New old ride

My better half and I went to a fiver about seven years ago. Got the itch recently to go back to a motorbike. We found a very well loved 2003 Tiffin Paeton 40GH and made the jump. I would be glad to hear any suggestions for this vehicle as we as suggestions for a toad.

RE: Batteries(new) supply power sporadically

Ground cables for both starting and house batteries are sometimes attached at one place , likely the frame . A bad connection there can cause a problem for both circuits . I would find where the ground cables attach to the frame , clean until you see bright metal then tighten good . Good luck let us know

RE: Bad Dog = No Start and No shifting of Transmission

You repaired it good enough to get it down to the garage so why not go down and recheck your repair . Goofing up on the side of the road is not the end of the world . I have had to eat crow before when i was 100% sure I was right . So I think it is possible like others have stated that you have a couple of wires wrong . You need a strong flash light and cleaner so you can be sure of the wire color and stripe if they have stripes . Another possibility is when the dog jerked on the harness maybe he pulled something loose that you haven't spotted yet . Follow the wires , maybe they are broken somewhere else too or unplugged farther away from your splices . Unless Ford used some resistance wiring which is possible I think the talk about not being able to solder is bunk I think that resistance wire will look different probably a single strand and won't solder well or at all . The garage doesn't want to get involved , actually I don't blame them they are probably worried about transmission liability . If those things don't help then you are left with RV salvage places .

RE: To Buy or build

IMHO your roles should have been reversed . You should have been the one saying I'll build us an RV . She should have said your crazy and telling you no way. Of she would win and save the day. A few people can pull this off but probably 90% + never get finished by the person that started the conversion . The few conversions I've seen look like a home made RV and have noticeable design or arrangement flaws We would probably end up killing each other .
