RE: Lincoln Problem

Sounds like an ignition circuit issue...possibly the module or harness. Try poking around one of the Mustang or Crown Vic forums for input. Gary

RE: Opinions Appreciated (yeah about tires)

We installed the Michelin Agilis earlier this year on a 32' C. They replaced Generals of which two had tread separation. We've put about 5k Miles on the Agilis and are quite satisfied with the ride and handling. They are quite on most road surfaces but will generate a little noise on some. I was going to go with Cooper but, decided on Michelin after getting a quote based on my FMCA membership. I don't regret the decision. Gary

RE: Wanna bring a golf cart and a Jeep towed

Actually, hohenwald48 is right...our bone stock 2015 JKU hardtop weighed 4520 with about 8 gallons of gas. And that was before the base plate etc. Gary

RE: GM Trans Temp Gauge Install?

Chum lee, Thanks, it appears my options are the pan itself or the cooler line. I found a supplier for the quick disconnect fittings and of course welding a bung on the pan is pretty straight forward. Right now I’m going with the Scan Gauge to see how that works. Our C isn’t too heavy as we travel light and don’t have slides. But, we tow about 4500#’s and travel the rockies every summer. Just thought I should at least monitor the temp to ensure I’m not abusing the trans. Gary

RE: GM Trans Temp Gauge Install?

I like the idea of monitoring the oil and trans temps. I’d probably also use ambient temp and that’s about all. Water temp is already in the instrument cluster. And no way I’m looking at fuel mileage reading! Ordered the Scan Gauge this morning... Gary

RE: GM Trans Temp Gauge Install?

Kamphiker, it was an option with the 4500 chassis. However, I wasn’t successful in having GM reprogram the new instrument cluster to add it. So, now I’m leaning towards the Scan Gauge option as there is a nice place to install it on the dash. Thanks for the advice everyone. Gary

RE: GM Trans Temp Gauge Install?

Thanks for the input. I've debated the X-Gauge solution but need to do more investigation to confirm it is capable of displaying the temp. Short to that, I guess an in-line connection or drill and weld a bung on the existing pan are my options. Also looking at a B&M cast aluminum pan and tapping it for a drain plug and sending unit. I'm planning to pull the pan off after the holidays to do a fluid/filter change so, I can figure out what to do then. By the way, this is for a 2015 Chevy 4500 chassis with the 6L90e transmission.

RE: GM Trans Temp Gauge Install?

MDKMDK, Yeah I neglected to mention the GM dealer I worked with recently wasn't any help as the only "GM" solution is to enable the trans temp function in the information screen. Unfortunately, our particular configuration omitted this feature. I asked them to program it in but, they explained they could, or would, not do it as all they can do is reprogram existing functionality. They actually did this when they replaced the body control module and the instrument cluster... both of which we paid for! And even at that, they would not install the trans temp feature. The nearest GM dealer that will work on a RV is 105mi from us. Gary

GM Trans Temp Gauge Install?

I'm interested in installing a temp gauge in our 6L90e transmission. Has anyone done this? I'm struggling with where to place the sending unit. This trans doesn't appear to have a "test port" so, it looks like either I weld a bung on the pan or splice it in the return line. Any thoughts or experience? Gary

RE: Air conditioner noise reduction

Rob, This is what I ordered from Amazon in 2018 based on this statement I found on irv2. Although it doesn’t specifically say, it did include a metal plate and some adhesive sound deadening. “ While we were at the THOR diesel Club rally in Goshen, the Dometic rep told us that if we switched out the air return cover to the basic one (no grill opening for the blast of air) it would be much quieter. Just did it and it is much better. Costs about $50 from Amazon. use search term Dometic 3105007.045.”. Here is the link to the actual one I ordered. Gary

Okay, thanks. Gary

RE: VAN CAMPER COVERSION

Just don’t forget, you have to get that 120 volt service inspected. Doing so before you close it up will be a lot easier (read cheaper) to do. Ditto if you install a fixed propane system and or plumbing. Interesting point. Who would be qualified to do these inspections? Gary

RE: Air conditioner noise reduction

We have a ducked Dometic heat pump and installed the Dometic version of this sound reducer. I believe it was less than $50. It too does away with the rapid cooling vent and adds some sound deadening to the input area. Easy install and made a noticeable difference in overall noise level. Gary

RE: Motorhomes on Mercedes Chassis

OP...When discussing this topic with Sprinter owners, a few subjects seem to come up quite often; Fuel mileage, storage capacity and towing capacity. Fuel mileage seems to always be a "positive". Cargo capacity can be tight and towing is all about weight. By that I mean, the capacity to tow can be greatly influenced by GCWR as opposed to hitch specs. Familiarize yourself with these as it relates to your travel expectations and you should be quite comfortable with your decision. Gary

RE: GM Trac Bar

Bob, good point...I hadn't considered that. I see one brand cautions about air bags but, it appears for the most part I'll have to buy one and hope it fits without too much cutting and welding! Gary

GM Trac Bar

Looking for feedback from anyone that has installed a trac bar(panhard bar) on a Chevy 4500 chassis C. Current setup includes Bilstien shocks, sway bars, air bags and some additional positive caster. We're 32' in length with 4400#'s on the front and 7800#'s on the back towing a 4500# Jeep. Gary

RE: The best Wranglers for towing?

For reference, our stock 4dr Sahara with the hardtop weighted 4520 with about 8 gals of gas. And, that was without the base plate etc. Gary

RE: Tow Package Installation

Not recommending these but, have you contacted the two local dealers CW and Bill Plemmons? Another option may be RA Hitch in Apex or Shaw RV Service. Gary
