RE: Onan Marquis 5500 Model 5.5 BGMFA11578G

Voltage for the battery has a lot to do with the starting process. You did not say if it was gas or diesel, maybe that does not make much difference however. I know when my diesel gen. does not want to start I have to start the rv motor to help build up the batteries. That seems to help, also if diesel it will be common for that as it takes awhile for the glow plugs to heat up enough.

RE: New cooling unit or refurbish?

I can not relate to the Dometic frig. but I can tell you my experience with the Norcold. The cooling unit went out, so I did the normal looking around at options. To replace the whole frig would have cost way to much plus the unit would have had to come in through the windshield. Putting a residential frig was not an option as it would have required to much wood work to make it look like it belonged. I do not do good with woodwork. So I looked at what JC Refrigeration had to offer. I ended up with their 120v unit as I never boondock and am always plugged in. The removal of the old cooling unit and install of the new unit went very easy. JC Refrigeration provided great info for both removel and install plus on the spot help if needed. I would go with them again if needed, I believe its worth looking into. Good Luck

RE: How to remove Captain's Chair pedestal from floor of RV

When I replaced the pedestal on my past MH, there where four bolts that went through the floor. The bolt end was exposed just behind the front wheel well and then of course the nut part was inside. You should be able to undo the nuts but you will have to make a decision as to what to do with the bolts. Either put a large washer and re nut or get underneath and remove. A third you may be able to just drive the bolts out so they fall on the ground. You will have to look and see where they are in relation to the underside of your coach. Good Luck

RE: Norcold fridge not cooling

Tom I am by far not a NorCold pro. When my Norcold started going bad I found one of the problems was the heat safty shut off switch. Not all frigs have them, if you look at the outside maybe you will see a small box roughly 2x2 attached to the cooling coil. If you see the red light remove the cover and with a magnet reset the switch. I had this problem with my 07 norcold. After doing that a few times the frig stopped all together. A couple repair folks told me about the same story and it boiled down to its just old and tired. I ended up changing out the cooling system with a JC Refrigeration totally 120v unit and could not be happier Good Luck

RE: Loading generator

When running the generator for its monthly winter exercise, I will turn on the toaster, and electric heater. These will give the gen. enough demand. I do not want to start a battle but why would anyone leave water in their water heater over winter! The water heater needs to be drained, if you winterize your coach thats part of the process. Good Luck

RE: Atwood water heater problem

Last year I had a problem with the water heater. Cleaned all of the 12v connections, took the propane tube off cleaned it out, (you may want to do that critters like to hide in there) still did not work. I changed the circuit board and still did not work. Come to find out my problem was the igniter wire. Most of the wire strands were broken. New igniter wire great water heater operation. Good Luck

RE: Automatic air tank drain valves

Cindy and Steve It would be very helpful if you would have told us what unit you have. Like make model year that kind of thing. Also you have the availability to put that information in the signature block.

RE: Hi from RI

Congrats on your new rig. I had a 2017 ACE 29.3 and while I had it really enjoyed the unit. I would make sure you have some type of road side assistance program. Be it Good Sam, FMCA to name a couple. Stay away from the dealer add on's it will cost way more than they are worth. I would however pressure the dealer for free things like sewer hose, water hose and maybe an extra electric cable. Do a very good in depth PDI walk through. Get to understand how everything operates. Pay attention to how to winterize the unit where the water heater bypass values are. One of my values was behind a partition. Get to know the importance of slide operation. The most important part is take it use it and enjoy it Good Luck safe travels

RE: Thor ACE 27.1 - used (2015 or 16) gripes or praises?

I has an 2017 ACE 29.3 for a season and a half. We wanted to down size from a 35' 5th wheel. Well we down sized to much! For weekend trips the ACE would be ok but for longer trips 3-4 weeks there just was not enough storage space. Space for cloths, food that type of things. The out side bays really had no room also at least for the important items. We ended up getting out of the ACE for our older DP with more space than we can fill up. Now for the quality. All of the appliances are the same as every other unit on the road. The ACE has a lot of just little things to save money. Our paneling kept coming off the studs. In stead of staples I put them back with screws. The workmanship just was not there. To get to a water heater value I had to remove a piece of panneling under the sink. One would have thought a little access door or something would have been nice. One of our biggest complaints was the black holding tank was only 26 gal. we could deal with that sort of. But then found out the bathroom sink drained into the black tank. Would I buy another one most likely not

RE: Non-level campsites Class A

On my rig the "auto level" has a hard time when the pad is not even close to level its self. Manual level you can adjust the rig so as not to have the wheels off the ground. I never raise the rear wheels off the ground. They are your brakes and and your stability for the rig. If I have to raise the front off the ground I put either wood or legos between the tire and the ground. Good Luck

RE: Where to get steering alignment done for a class A?

You may want to find folks that work on tour busses. The reason I say that is here in Branson MO is a great place for all chassis work. They started out mainly for tour busses and are now more RV chassis folks. They have an alignment set up for larger busses etc. Good Luck
