RE: Tires?

I also changed my Michelins with Toyo's. Michelin has had issues with sidewall deterioration. Do you have a reference for that? I've had 2 set of Michelins, they give a softer ride, and longer life. Yeah, I had 3 sets crack badly after 3 1/2 years, enough I didn't want to drive on them anymore. Michelin gave me credit one time, and I switched to Toyo's and will never use Michelin again. And as far as Michelin is a softer ride both my wife and I feel we are getting a better ride with the Toyo's. I'll take minor cracking any day over blow outs on a china bomb. They got that nick name for a reason. OBTW my Michelins had 11 years on them, and no cracking.

RE: Changing a tire yourself

Our Newmar requires 10X22.5" aluminum wheels. I have changed a tire, but I'd pay 500.00 not to do it again..

RE: Wheel Bearings - re-grease?

If you are not certain, I'd do the job inspect the breaks, clean the bearings, and repack the bearings.. then you'll know for sure.

RE: What is too hot

I no longer use a tire monitor system.. I find they are more trouble than they are worth. I use new Michelins, keep the proper inflation pressure, and coat the interior with tire slime. I run 100 PSI and feel each tire at every stop, each tire should feel very close to the same. no system will save you from a catastrophic tire failure, a slow leak will show in heat. there are several tire within a tire systems investigate those options.

RE: Lithium Batteries

Lithium battery has more energy stored in them at 90% than a fully charged lead acid battery at 100%. Lithium batteries are charged to 14.6 volts Lead acid are charged to 13.2 typically. BattleBorn batteries are Guaranteed 10 years. typical for Lithium. The lithium won't corrode posts like lead acid. same size battery lithium will be 50% lighter study the U-tube videos about "BattleBorn batteries"

RE: cable connections

Pull the power plug, gen off, disconnect any solar and disconnect all wires from the li negative post. If the house 12V items still work then someone changed the wiring as very unlikely Newmar would wire it that way and a DC clampon meter would be very useful to isolate the problem. 13.4V on the chassis battery doesn't mean it's charged or any good. Load test it. I'd guess it's being charged by the DC DC converter which is inadequate for enought charge in the time frame for a engine start. Chassis batteries were just installed. they hold a charge just fine. No Solar.. The house system is now working, every light in the coach is on, the furness motor is on, and the microwave is cooking dinner... the Chassis batteries are holding 13.2 VDC for the past 4 hours. I think it's fixed. Thanks for the help.

RE: cable connections

Sounds like you are correct. Could be that both battery banks are connected together incorrectly, or possibly there is a solenoid that pulls in to connect them together when you push the "AUX" switch on the dash. Sometimes that solenoid gets stuck closed and that will connect both banks together. The house batteries were never joined. There is no solenoid between the house and the chassis. there is no boosted start any longer. the house batteries are lithium and the chassis are lead acid, this system must have a DC to DC charger separating them. I simply have the house system on the wrong battery..

cable connections

I may have the house battery connected to the chassis battery. my house furness will run on the chassis battery, Shouldn't it be connected to the House battery bank? the furness/lights/and refer will run the battery dead over night. starting with a chassis battery @ 13.4 VDC the chassis will no start the engine in the morning.

RE: HWH 610 Leveling system.

I've completed a lesson in frustration the past day or two.. HWH has the poorest customer relations I have ever seen.. first the gal will put you on hold until it times out if you ever do gain access, she can only tell you to be on a call waiting list.. expect to be waiting a couple months. If you try to order a part, the people have a 2 week wait on a waiting list.. I determined that my Jack issue is a bad motor.( thanks YouTube) I ordered one on Amazon..

RE: Maiden Voyage Blues

It is nip and tuck which is worse, a new coach or an old one.

RE: HWH 610 Leveling system.

It just acts like there is no control power to the pump. EXACTLY I now have three light showing. a red power (HYD) I white (Travel) Yellow Center top showing it is level in front next step. send it in for system check ,, HWH does have that service. but it is the weekend..

RE: HWH 610 Leveling system.

One of small terminals is ground. Other pin should be control 12 volts DC. Not sure which is pin A. Did you check for resistance between the small pins on pump solenoid? Did you find the main control unit? There is several fuses there including one for pump control. Has there some recent battery work done? Both solenoids has been checked for operation. all terminals cleaned, and tightened. Yes the entire house battery system has been replaced, to include lithium batteries, a 12 to 12 /30 amp charger, a smart shunt (500) and a voltage gauge/ monitor system. all electrical have been working normally. the HWH electrical power is supplied +12VDC. and proven at the control box. The HWH jack system is on the chassis battery buss. if the Keypad works it must have system voltage. the system will dump the air, it must have voltage "power"
