RE: Dash AC not cold

Your problem could possibly be a restricted screen in the inlet of the expansion valve. A high side restriction would cause your issue. If you have a restricted screen, change the receiver/dryer also. Use a very small hooked wire to remove it. My ol Bounder will have a discharge temperature of about 48° on a 85° day, with high humidity. Could you explain what you are calling a needle valve. None of the components in an AC unit are called a needle valve, that I'm aware of. Look at your compressor for a brand name and model #. Then go to a parts store and have them sell you the proper viscosity oil for that brand and model. Richard

RE: 8 / 40 volts to 12 volts

The specs. for that device calls for an output of 12V DC +/- 2%. That's probably not a good battery charge voltage? darn! Maybe something like this would work. Dork has alsorts of DC to DC devices on Amazon. Richard

RE: Fuel Pump & Gas Filter for Onan Mobile Genset 4KY

When you push the prime button, do you hear the pump? Is there voltage to the pump? If you can hear the pump, attach a short hose to the inlet and see if the pump will suck gas from a gas can. Did you remove the filter and try to blow through it? Your post indicates that you are just trying to throw $$ at your generator instead of trouble shooting the problem. Richard

RE: Fuel for Gassers

Why does premium fuel give more mileage and power? Richard

RE: Homemade Tire Scale

I wonder how much thisTongue weights?

RE: Dometic AC Fan Not Working

I suspect your thermostat is bad. It sends voltage on separate wires to the compressor and fan. Try changing the "auto/always on" fan switch and see what happens. Could be a loose wire in the thermostat. Richard

RE: 34 ft 89 winnebago chieftain

A cheaper and just as effective means of raising the rear end is air bags. Air bags are a DIY job, where as changing rear springs is not something most DIYs can do. I've had air bags under my 95 Bounder for about 8 years. The ride is even slightly improved. I suspect Winnebago got the vent wrong and it acts as a syphon. The vent tube is inserted too far into the top of the tank and it also needs an opening going up to stop the syphoning effect. Is you generator a BGE on NHM? I may have the service manuals for them. Tag on the operator side of the generator with the info I requested. Richard

RE: Holding Tank Treatments and Your Advice on Lubricants

I've been leaning more towards silicone over the white lithium. Some rubbers dont like petroleum based lubes. The seals are not rubber. The seals are neoprene. Richard

RE: Little fans in skylight

I had that little noisy fan in our bathroom. I replaced it with a box fan (computer fan). Moves the same amount of air with much less noise. A little thought and creativity are required. Richard

RE: Approximate fuel milage of these 2 motorhomes?l

That ol 460 is about as bad as it gets for fuel mileage. You can count on 7 MPG @ 62 MPH. On the other hand, I have read reports on the 5.9 getting 9-11 MPG. Richard

RE: Inside tire valve extensions

I've had the steel braded flexible extensions on my coach for 20 years with no problems. Ya think there might be something about installing them correctly? Richard

RE: Why is the generator cycling??

What your are experiencing is call "lean roll". If you have a fuel mixture screw on the bottom of the float bowl, give it a 1/4 turn out and see what happens. Richard

RE: Aftermarket wheel up grade

Once you consider the cost of 19.5 tires and wheels. Think about the best 235/85R16 tire for your MH. Michelin XPS is the tire Ford picked as OEM, for a reason. The XPS has all steel cord construction and that helps eliminate tire side wall flex. I run nothing but Michelin XPS tires on my coach with never a problem. The drive and handling is good. You current 235/85R16 tires are 32" in diameter. Try and maintain the diameter if you insist on changing wheel size. Richard

RE: 2015 Fleetwood Bounder 35K Headlights

Most MHs have poor headlight adjustment from the factory. Start with adjustment. Hot spot should hit the pavement 30-40 feet from the front of the coach. Then add relays to the headlights to make sure they are getting proper voltage. Then if all else fails add LEDs. You will need to readjust your headlights after adding LEDs. Richard

RE: why i call Li fussy

I still don't get it, with Li batteries. The cost is outrageous. They don't tolerate the cold. My wet cell deep cycle batteries live behind my front bumper and have worked perfectly down to -15F. Additional devices must be purchased and added into the charging system. I.E. BMS, DC to DC chargers, etc. 4 100 amp GC batteries cost about $400 and last me 5-6 years. That's less than $100 a year for batteries. We spend the winter months near Quartzsite on BLM property with 500 watts of solar. generator only runs for microwave and hair dryer. Yeah, Li batteries charge faster, thus the DC-DC charger to protect the alternator. They weight less but that's not an issue for my coach. For the additional cost of Li batteries, I wouldn't get any more service. Flack jacket on Richard

RE: Sewer smell

When you open the window, while under way, you put the coach in a negative pressure. Thus you suck air through the pee traps. I had the same issue and my air admittance valves were new. I installed rotating sewer vent covers and the problem went away. They put you tanks in a negative pressure, thus a balance of pressures. Richard

RE: Black Tank Dump Valve

I found that lubricating it during a dump as in this video works. I have used this method for many years to lubricate my valves and have had no problems with them at all. This Video will show how to do it I did the same only different. I drilled, tapped and screwed in grease zerks. Then lubed with chassis grease. NO! the seals are NOT rubber. Richard

RE: 98. Suncruiser f53 Ford chassis doesn't start.

Yes, there is a starter solenoid. Location should be in the dog house on right side. Make that "the left side" for 88-98 460 F53 starter relays. The solenoid is on the starter. Richard

RE: Wanting to install Ceiling Fan in Bedroom

Check your ceiling with a stud finder. Chances are you have 2 center braces, 14" apart, running for and aft. If so you have support for a ceiling fan. At least that's what I found in my Fleetwood coach, when I installed an additional ceiling fan. You can scab onto 12 volts from a close ceiling light. Richard
