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

RE: If I went to a Progressive Dynamics Converter.......

If one wants to use thicker cables than will fit in the cable receptacles, there are adapters available, or one can simply destrand at the connection until it fits. It's not going to cause any measurable voltage drop or excessive heating destranding a 0 gauge cable to 4 awg at the connection. Never, Ever destrand a connection for any reason!!!:M Why? Richard

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Almost 600 pages and you're going to wuss out on us now. Bummer. I could stop by with my vial of testosterone and a 6" needle for a little pick-me-up. It don't hurt too much. Richard

RE: Norcold 1200 Thermistor reads wrong until door opened/closed

There is a reset procedure for Norcold circuit boards that may help. Just guessing but it's a cheap try. Richard

RE: Class A LP Tank

If you prefer low pressure, make sure that none of your appliances (i.e. Firepit, BBQ, Etc.) do not have a regulator attached. Propane does not like to be double regulated. Look closely at the propane regulator on your RV. It is a two stage regulator. Then on the propane stove in your RV is a third regulator. Richard

RE: F53 brake master cylinder failure

The brake cylinder is on the front right. It's way up in the engine compartment. I don't see how you could even add fluid to it as there is really no room above it. Underneath the master cylinder looks like the power steering. Under that is the windshield washer fluid tank. The washer fluid tank had a film of oily/water solution on it after my last trip. The fluid got on part of the frame of the motorhome and the black paint is starting to bubble. I have been told that brake fluid will do this to paint. Right and left side of vehicles are referenced like you are sitting in the driver's seat. That puts the master cylinder on the front left side. Richard

RE: DIY Tool to Pressure Bleed Brake Lines

I was curious how you was going to keep the reservoir from popping off the master cylinder. Good thinking outside the box! Richard

RE: 1996 Bounder Batteries

On the positive post of your engine/chassis battery will be 1 large cable to the starter, 1 medium size cable to the alternator, 1 medium size cable to the hydraulic jacks, 1 medium size cable to the battery control center (BCC) and 1 small wire to the EEC-IV engine/transmission computer for memory. Only 1 large negative cable, going to the frame. BCC is the black box on firewall on drivers side. Wiring print for BCC is on the inside of the cover. I have seen Bounders of your era with the positive post in the front and the back. Makes no difference which way the battery is turned, if the cables fit. As for the house batteries, your coach came from the factory with 2 6 volt batteries hooked in series. Unless someone has added more wiring, the batteries have one positive going to the BCC and one negative going to the frame and the jumper between the batteries. Richard

RE: New Bounder Class A owner Inverter question

To the best of my knowledge, 95 Bounders did NOT have an inverter from the factory. If you have an inverter, a previous owner installed it. Richard

RE: Question about Onan Generator

If I'm on shore power, I also have my city water connection hooked up so it doesn't make sense for the generator to power the hose. And that folks is why we need more mental health care facilities. Richard

RE: Class A, gas or diesel

Driving in the mountains with a gasser is not a problem. Gassers have intake manifold vacuum to help with going down grades. From your post, it looks like you have little choice but to purchase a diesel MH. I suspect you won't find a gas MH that has the cargo carrying capacity you'll need and the towing capacity. Hopefully you'll hit a jackpot close to home and pay cash for a nice diesel pusher. Richard

RE: 95 Bounder 34J--rear leafs--shop recommendation

Not sure I agree. If the rear is heavy enough that the rear is sagging, adding a leaf to bring it back to factory spec should not make for a harsh ride. Yes, the springs have become weaker over the years. An added leaf should restore their deflection per pound/force. Of course if the IS something that concerns you, another option to restore ride height without adding to spring rate is to have a SPACER added. Did that on our Safari DP with leaf spring suspension. Worked just fine. Note: Did not do it because of sagging axle, but side to side lean due to all heavy things on one side of the coach. But all that extra metal does nothing to improve the ride. Where as adding air bags to sagging leaf springs improves the ride. Richard

RE: AC heat element in Norcold Fridge

After some gentle tapping on the retaining tube with no success, I heated the tube with my ox/acetylene torch. It then took some extreme effort wiggling with pliers but out it came. Richard

RE: 95 Bounder 34J--rear leafs--shop recommendation

I dont know how the front tire was so high, I had tires put on it in Oct, my I'm been watching the rears, I never paid much attention to the front We are going to weigh the MH this afternoon If your coach has a Ford F53 chassis, your tires are 235/85R16. In single tire configuration, your tires will carry 3042 lbs ea @ 80 psi and 2773 @ 80 psi in dual tire configuration. That's 6,084 lbs of capacity for your front tires and 11,092 lbs of capacity for your rear tires. You coach as built has a 6000 lb front axle and a 11,000 rear axle. So set your tires @ 80 psi. I can guarantee you will be running over weight on your rear axle any time you fill your 100 gallon fresh water tank. Richard

RE: 95 Bounder 34J--rear leafs--shop recommendation

You didn't mention which chassis you have but when you say "front axle", I'll assume a Ford F53. Chevy P32 have IFS. Due to sagging rear springs on my 95 32H Bounder, I added rear air bags. The air bags allow for height adjustment and really smooth out the ride in back. I would do it again. Take the easy and economical way out and add air bags to the rear axle. Fleetwood built closely to the rear shackles and removing the bolts will require drilling holes in the storage compartments. Firestone ride-rite air bags mount into original holes in the frame and are a easy install for a DIY person. The graphics on you coach would indicate you have a 96 Bounder not a 95. 95 Bounders didn't have the brown paint around the front windows. But then again, you're in CA and they titled you 96 coach on a 95 chassis as a 95. :( If you ever care to contest the titling issue, 95 Bounders and back are 8 feet wide where you Bounder is 8½ feet wide.

RE: AGM Troubles Update

With AGMs the equivalent to equalizing is "reconditioning" at around 15.5 volts. Supposedly seldom needed unless you have been doing 50-90s or undercharging instead of getting to true full, as happens a lot with solar when it gets dark too soon. Trojan's guide says never equalize AGMs, but Lifeline's does. Be worth checking others to see what they say. Do AGM batteries need to be equalized? Please keep in mind that not all AGM batteries are built equally. Our batteries are hand built and have large inter-cell connections, allowing them to be equalized. ... Batteries are pretty simple. You put energy into them, they store it, and then they give you energy when you need it.Dec 19, 2018 lifelinebatteries.com › 2015/10 › can-i-equalize-agm-batteries Contrary to popular belief, batteries DO NOT store energy. A charged battery has the capacity to generate electron flow. As the battery is depleted the acid is absorbed into the plates. When charging, the acid is removed from the plates and absorbed back into the water. Batteries are a chemical generator, NOT a storage device. Capacitors are electron storage devices. Richard
