RE: Braking system required?

Why do they build 90% of the boat trailers with no brakes.

RE: Aux Start to Boost Cranking Amps

I just leave mine running while jacks go down and slides go out. But should not hurt to use start button.

RE: Engine miss in hard rain

Have you been getting any Check Engine Lights? The light will come on, but will go off when i get out of the rain for a few miles You need to find out what the code is for that Check Engine Light. I have been thinking about getting a Scan Guage, does it read codes

RE: Engine miss in hard rain

The tuba fix is only applicable on certain models. It really depends on the configuration of the hood. Some RV's have a hood that positions the tuba directly behind a joint between the hood and the rest of the bodywork. That allows rainwater to enter through the small gap and go into the intake while driving in heavy rain. Some have solved the issue by adding weather stripping around the hood opening, particularly in the area where the tuba is, without having to cut/turn the tuba. I will take a good look at the way mine is made, thinking rain water could go down between the windshield bottom and the hood, and straight into the tuba. when i wash again, will see how the water runs down. that could be the problem. might need to put a hood over it.

Is it the 8.1 engine? It is the 8.1

RE: Engine miss in hard rain

This is a simple solution on the GM 8.1L engine. What is happening is that your "tuba" air intake is ingesting water which is soaking your paper air cleaner element and causing the engine to miss. The solution is to cut off the top of the air intake tuba, turn it 180 degrees, so that it faces the rear, and using duct tape, reattach the intake air horn. I used two pieces of aluminum to screw in to the bottom of the tuba and then screwed the top on before I taped the joint. My cost was really nothing more than some time. I put another 50,000 miles in some very hard rain the the problem was solved. I will make that change to. Thanks!!

RE: Engine miss in hard rain

Yes that will cause a miss. I would change out all the plugs and wires being an 06. I have changed to the ultra rv wires and new plugs, thats when i found the crack in the insulator.

RE: Engine miss in hard rain

Sorry ours is a Pace Arrow, 06 with 05 W22 chassis. I changed the air filter and could not see where it had been wet.

Engine miss in hard rain

Have had bad miss in hard rain while going up hill. Changed the plugs and wires today and found a crack the length of the insulator on one of the plugs. Plug tips and wires did not look bad at 23,000 miles. Do you guys think the cracked insulator was causing the miss during the hard rain. New air filter last trip, going clean MAF next

RE: Direct TV revisited

I am not sure of the accuracy of the OPs post. I have a KVH M3 satellite dish on my boat that can only receive SD channels. I am using a h-24 receiver. I just walked out to the boat and am still receiving all of the channels I normally get. Ken ERROR 722 "Error Code 722: Service Expired If you see this message, your DIRECTV receiver may not have the programming information for the channel you’re trying to view. To get your channels back, reset your receiver: Unplug your receiver’s power cord from the electrical outlet, wait 15 seconds, and plug it back in. Press the Power button on the front panel of your receiver. Wait for your receiver to reboot. If you still see the error message, call 888.388.4249 for assistance." Dead receiver perhaps? Receiver disconnected or unplugged for too long perhaps? If unplugged too long the receiver can get too far behind on software updates or lose authorization.. Not able to get authorization perhaps? Dish misaligned? Latest software issue perhaps? Seen a post from 2019 that mentions a software update caused that error and a reboot/refresh and rehit fixed it.. SEE HERE Check alignment and LNB signals? OP may also need to reboot and refresh several times after verifying they are getting good LNB signal.. Ours went dead with the 722 code, they told us we would have to update the equipment to get service back, the tech said we would not be able to use it in the motorhome after that so we cancelled. We are going get dish and a wally for motorhome
