RE: Seriously looking at a late 90's HR Endeavor

We owned a 2000 Holiday Rambler Endeavor built on a Freightliner Chassis. This was probably one of the last units on the Freightliner as Monaco switched to their own chassis sometime in 2000. Over 11 years and 60000 miles, it was a good solid unit. It had the cat 3126 engine and 6 speed allison transmission. Some of the Endeavors came with a smaller cummins with a little less power. The cat 3126 towed our Honda Odyssey with ease. I don't know which years saw changes, but I drove a 1999 model and it was virtually identical to our 2000 model. Some of the older models had instrument panels that would not allow repair or replacement of one indicator. The whole panel would have to be replaced, or an alternate method of getting that info would have to be installed (ie new temp or oil pressure guage installed outside the instrument cluster). My motorhome came with marginal tires for the load being carried. The original owner kept having blowouts on the left front tire. When I weighed the coach, I found the left front was running overloaded due to the slide weight being on the driver side. An upgrade in tire size cured that problem. The Freightliner chassis is well supported, and Freightliner maintains a free help desk with well trained people to help you with problems encountered with the chassis. I never had a problem getting parts from them either (the location in Gaffney, SC). If I can help with other questions, just ask. I still have the detailed maintenance log if you want to see what I encountered. Good luck with your search. Fred

RE: Foggy Windows

I was wondering if anyone has tried taking out one of the panes and just putting one back in with some molding and or caulk to hold it in? Unfortunately, this is the same amount of work as fixing it properly if you buy the spacer and sealant.

RE: fuel trouble

The Freightliner Help Desk will help you troubleshoot this problem. CUSTOMER SUPPORT CENTER 1-800-FTL-HELP (1-800-385-4357) [email protected] When you call, have the last 6 digits of you VIN number handy because they will ask for that to allow lookup of your chassis info. Up through 2016 this was a free service, so I assume it is still free. These folks have helped me several times. Fred

RE: What cellular company?

Dw and I have Total Wireless on Verizon towers. Unlimited talk and text and 15GB data for $60 month for two lines. Great service. We have the same plan from Total Wireless, and very happy. You do have to bring your own phone or buy one of theirs.

RE: False Tire PSI Reading

I would try a new valve stem core in the existing valve stem.

RE: consumer cellular cell phone

Take a look at the rates at Total Wireless is part of consumer cellular. We have two lines with unlimited talk and text, and share 15 GB of data. In 2 years, we have never exceeded their data limit (or they don't check maybe). Our plan runs on the Verizon network. The cost of the two lines is $57 plus tax...or a total of approximately $62. You can bring your own cell phone or buy one of theirs. Fred

RE: Slide/camera issue

Where would I find the relay box?? It is located where ever your motorhome manufacturer (not the chassis maker) placed it. On my old 2000 Holiday Rambler, it was located in the storage bin drivers side front bay. If possible, call your manufacturer to get the location. Good luck with your problem. Fred

RE: Slide/camera issue

Possibly a defective relay that has frozen in the on position. Find the box with all the relays and read the labels of what they control. Or you can just unplug each relay to see when the symptoms change. Fred

RE: 1999 Holiday Rambler Endeavor 5.9 cummins won't crank.

....some text deleted..... But supposedly this box is black, 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" x 2" and contains 6 relays and 4 fuses. They say a fuse or relay gone bad here will cause my problem. Gonna keep looking. Thanks for all the help. On the 2000 Holiday Rambler Endeavor (freightliner chassis) that I had, I found the box you describe in a storage bay, driver side, forward of rear wheel. In this compartment, it had a black box that was attached to the top of the bin. Inside this large black box was the tranny computer, the VDC, and one other component if I remember correctly. Your 1999 is probably built the same so look in the storage bays. Fred

RE: Freightliner Airbag replaced. Now not level

Since you have a Freightliner chassis, give the helpdesk a call. It's free. They will need the last 6 digits of your vin number. 1-800-FTL-HELP They were very helpful to me on several problems. Fred

RE: 1997 Ford 460 ignition

....much text deleted... There was a thread here years ago from a guy that added a elec fuel pump near the filter leaving the OEM in place. The mod (Bounder something?) had it.. Dirt Dog? Good luck. Any brake dragging problems? My first motorhome was an F-53, and I have a copy of of forum member Tom's (aka Dirt Rod) fuel pump installation. If you need it, send me (via PM) your email and I will send it to you. There are 3 word documents and 3 pictures. Fred

RE: Question about wheelbase and handling issues???

I am going to look at the coach I posted the picture of above this weekend but the picture makes it look like it has a very short wheelbase and after my previous issues it makes me worry about possible handling issues. I think this chassis is the 4 air bag roadmaster, which has a reputation of being a harsh ride as compared to the 8 air bag roadmaster. This is just something to consider when you're doing a test drive.

RE: Sony camera monitor

If all else fails, just cut the trigger wire that becomes hot when the coach is in reverse.
