Fuel pressure gauge went backwards

Hello, the coach is stalling and dying on acceleration and I'm trying to make a definite diagnosis. I installed a fuel pressure gauge along the frame rail just downstream of the fuel tank so I can tell if the in-tank fuel pump is working. When I started the coach the needle went backwards and pegged at the opposite side. I'm thinking this means the in-tank fuel pump is not working and gas is being drawn forward by the mechanical pump. Is this correct? I'd like to be sure before I start trying to drop the tank. Thanks to all for your help.

Solar Cable Tangles

Hello; I have two solar suitcase panels that I set outside the RV. I run an 8 gauge solar cable out to them. I have a couple of sets of cables so I can add length if I need to, for a total of about 20 feet. Of course, each cable has 2 cables, a + and a -. My problem is that is a lot of cable and gets tangled easily. How can I combine the + and the -? I thought about plastic wire conduit but even 1/2" isn't big enough for two 8 gauge cables. I also considered just using pieces of electrical tape every couple of feet but the tape gets crappy after a while. What can I do to avoid a tangle? Thanks for your ideas.

RE: Need help with blindspot mirrors

Try wildauto blind spot mirrors. I get them on Amazon. I use them on our SUVs. Good product. Sits on top of the side view mirror.

RE: Water Pump and Battery Question

I would take the battery to an auto store and have it tested. Also check the battery connections and the pump wire connections. I would check the current draw of the water pump while it is running. Also, is the water valve to the hot water tank closed by any chance?

RE: Flip down TV mount for the ceiling above the cab

Try a Walabot to find the support braces. They are amazing.

RE: A/C couldn't keep up. Help?

Your ACs are probably fine, those conditions are just far beyond what they can handle. You could find a dog-friendly hotel or motel and stay there at night.

RE: Electronics repair shop needed

Try Dinosaur Electronics. I've talked with the owner and he was very helpful. If he can't help you he might know someone who can.

RE: Transporting Raft from Campsite to Launch Ramp?

Back when I was young and strong I used to take people on whitewater raft trips. I had a 12' bucket boat and a 16' self-bailer that I transported on a trailer. I got the boats to the water by giving out a shout. In no time I would have all the hands I needed. Everyone helped each other at the launch sites. 175 lbs. should be no problem even for a long carry.

Locked out of RV

This concerns the door latch below the deadbolt. I have the key. I have no problem locking and unlocking the latch, but I can't open the door with the outer latch. I pull on the latch and it won't open the door. The door isn't jammed, it acts like the latch is still locked. So, I am locked out of my RV. All the windows and other ways to get in are closed and locked. There are no compartments or other ways to get in. I don't mind ruining the latch to get in, it needs to be replaced anyway. I have drills and other tools. I don't want to break a window. What can I do?

RE: Mach 15 a/c not cooling well

Sorry that I wasn't more clear. My coach has a 15k Coleman up front and keeping the front living area at 81 deg. is about the best it can do when the RV is sitting out in the sun with an ambient temp in the 90's. It is not enough cooling power. I have to combine it with the rear AC (which I think is 13.5k), a fan, the bathroom vent fan, and thermal curtains in order to keep the RV habitable.

RE: Mach 15 a/c not cooling well

Under your conditions, 81 deg. actually seems about right for a 15k. What is the temp. of the air coming out of the vents? Open the bedroom door and let the two ACs work together. Turn on the vent fan in the bathroom.

RE: Please....

How does my going somewhere affect you? If your staying home you're safe. Wrong, How do you think all those people in nursing homes die? It affects every body because the infection is spread through chains and webs that can start with you and end up with someone far away that you don't even know. So many people fail to realize that this is a matter of caring for other people that you might spread the virus to which is collective responsibility. They can only think about themselves.

RE: Please....

I think that dispersed camping areas would be pretty safe, and that's where we intend to go. But you still have to buy groceries, get gas and propane, etc. that place you in contact with other people.

RE: heartworm meds in the mountain west

The vets we go to recommend heartworm tablets and we give them to our dog year round. There is some disagreement between different vets as to whether they are needed all year or if they should just be given in the summer. Because of the warming climate, our vet recommends that they take them all year.

RE: MI extended stay at home

Every one just go outside and march together against restrictions, that will slow the spread of the virus and keep people safe. Many fewer people will die.
