RE: Allison Transmission Question

The right number is the gear you are currently in. The left number is the gear the trans is heading for. When accelerating the numbers will read from 6 - 1 to 6 - 6. With foot off pedal the trans display will be the same. Left number is the gear it is heading for and right number is the gear you are actually in. Thank you sir, that clears it up.

Allison Transmission Question

I'm still confused what it means when your shift control panel has a reading like 6 5 or 6 4. I was climbing a steep grade and it downshifted to 2 4. What does that indicate? I figured I just had gears 1-6, It's an Allison 6 speed.

RE: Flattest Route to Coeur d'Alene, ID

Google Maps directions in bicycle mode shows a route profile. For various routes that I tried the total up and downs were about the same, with similar maximum elevations. But is the OP really interested that sort of thing, or the main concern the steepest single climb? As others have said, freeways have grade standards (something like 6%). State and federal (non-interstate) have looser standards, but seldom differ significantly from that. It's local, county and forest service roads that can be steeper, and big RVs seldom choose those. Thank you.

RE: Flattest Route to Coeur d'Alene, ID

You didn't say when you are planning to go on this trip, but since you are on I-15 and prefer interstates, why not just take 15 up to I-90 and then west to CD'A. I think interstates have a maximum 8% grade with most around 6 to 7%. Leaving Las Vegas on April 12th.

Flattest Route to Coeur d'Alene, ID

We're looking for the flattest route from Las Vegas, NV to Coeur d'Alene, ID. Interstates are my first choice as we will be on I-15, but I have heard that there are some very steep grades coming from the south and east. Any advice is greatly appreciated. We are in a 40' diesel pusher with a car in tow.

RE: 3M film

I did mine using plastic razor blades, Goo Gone Pro-Power, and Turtle Wax polishing compound, with great results.I ordered the razor blades and bought the Goo Gone at Walmart. It takes the adhesive off very easily. It's too hard for me to post pictures on this site, so if you want to see my results send me your e-mail address. Just take your time and save lots of money.It's not a hard job.

RE: Windshield Electric Shade Motor

Thank you all for the advice and information, it would be helpful if I knew what brand of shades we have. Both MCD and Auto-Motion have said that their shades were available to Damon back in 2008 but Thor does not have the brand on file that went into our coach back then, and I can't find any identifying marks on our shades. We'll keep trying what you suggest. Thanks again.

RE: Windshield Electric Shade Motor

Whatever you do, don't try to pull the shade down manually, that will break it, and you will have to replace the motor. That happened to me, before I realized that it was a programming problem. I also had to have the learning button pulled out from the molding along the side, since it was inaccessible without removing the molding (how's that for design). These shades do need reprogramming from time to time, and low voltage wipes out the programming altogether. Thank you so much, we will try this.

RE: Windshield Electric Shade Motor

what's wrong? not working at all or are the shades dropping a bit from the bumps as you roll down the road? Won't go up. We just roll them up manually and strap it down when we travel. but they'll go down? yes, they will go down

RE: Kwikee step issue

Have you checked the fuse to see if it happened to blow?

Windshield Electric Shade Motor

Has anyone here had the motor replaced in their electric windshield shade? If so, who do you recommend. We are currently in Florida for about another month and will be heading west soon. I thought about stopping at MCD in the Dallas area, but $850 for new shades sounds excessive. Thanks for any assistance.

RE: Flex Seal repair on grey tank.

If the crack is in the bottom, in an area where the tank is going to flex a lot, and not well supported chances are slim an adhesive will last too long as the tank fills and sags. You may want to look at adding a support under the tank to take some stress off of it. It's on a side wall. Thank you.

Flex Seal repair on grey tank.

Have any of you used a Flex Seal product to repair a crack in a holding tank?
