RE: Nice Story about class C use

Thanks for all replies and shared stories. I'm just so happy and thankful we had so much good use and fun with the camper this summer. Especially that last move home where we were significantly loaded....Wish winter would not come this year...Next summer we will install an out door shower/washdown station from the outdoor shower lines (better design then Winnebago...) On board air compressor (110v) for air up of shocks, tires, other stuff and to run air tools. Solar cells (still deciding on portable outside or roof top mount.) and lastly change rear differential fluid.

Nice Story about class C use

Howdy, Just a quick story about how much use I have gotten out of my camper this past summer. 24 Foot Winnie Ford E350 V10 which we have had for 6 years. But this summer it was used for: My daughters wedding, where we stayed for 3 days on an apple orchard. Was the dressing room for a bunch of folks but we had a great meal with my new son inlaw and his Dad before the wedding which was a wonderful time. Then I removed the table and easy chair to make it into a moving van to move my Son home from College 12 hours away. Before that we rented a car trailer and towed home one of his cars. Camped at my other Daughters boyfriend's land on a river with great swimming. Just a bunch of great use and great memories made. All with excellent performance from the camper and all the appliances. All that work up front maintaining and fixing stuff paid off. Just my thoughts as I pump the pink stuff thru for the long winter..

RE: 4x4 Class C ?

I've always wanted 4wd and visited the Quigly website... But now I think I'd rather have a locking differential for the rear duals. I think that would be good enough to get out of stuck situations. Has any one explored that? I think there are locker assemblies for dual rear wheel axles.

RE: Time to move on

Nice forum here. I have enjoyed it for many many years....Some of the good folks are gone....But I still tune in occasionally . Don't give a rats -ss about negative comments or anything else I think is stupid. Just in it to learn and share knowledge and sometimes trip reports about stuff that happened to me....

RE: Coach battery bank not working

All good recommendations and discussion above. Just wanted to add, while not likely to be the specific situation here, the battery isolation solenoid can click but still not do it's job disconnecting/connecting. The magnet and plunger actuate but the contacts are worn and not working. Need to check this with a multimeter and 12vdc supply to actuate the solenoid.

RE: Just an observation and wondering

I think every one is missing the specific technology of the Prius. It is a hybrid - meaning it has a small gas fired engine in addition to the electric drive motor and batteries. The energy dissipated from the brakes, wheels turning and the gas engine rotation, recharges the batteries. The control computer decides which is better suited (for performance and effeciency) which drive system is better and switches back and forth between them automatically. The AC works as described above.

RE: The importance of a TPMS Tire Pressure Monitoring System

You all may think I am a simpleton, but I carry a short solid wooden club under the drivers seat. Every time I re-fuel, I grab it and smack each of the 6 tires. If they don't make that distinctive thud - I check into it..... I believe that what many full time truckers use.

2002 E350 Dog House. Any smaller ones without front section

Howdy, just came off a trip that required many trips from front seats to back. It is aggravatingly tight where your foot has to pass between the seat and the dog house ( that removable front section with the cup holders) Does any one know of a smaller dog house available any where or at least a thinner clip on front section to improve that space . Thanks to all who reply.

RE: Strange noise from engine..."Whirling" sound

Agree with 2112's post. End of tension spring. Do not remove is my recommendation. Why do you want to remove it. (i'm pretty sure it does not work like a timing belt tensioner where in that case, your remove the pin to allow the plunger to come out.)

RE: Help! Onan 4K generator refuses to start and stay on

While that 15 seconds run time seems short for this issue, all my Onan 4k watt gens. Required new fuel pumps. The known issue shows up as the engine runs for a while then quits. Just FYI. But that 15 secs. may be related to some other issue like you said on related to the carb. Depending on the year, the choke linkage has also caused me problems in the past.

RE: water issue Outback 300rb

Just to share my experience.... I was happy to find out my roof leak was not from the roof! It was actually from the under the alumium corner trim, where the vertical wall met the horizontal wall, below the over cab bed. I had to re-make and re-seal the corner but that fixed it. So these leaks can be tricky to fine. Suggest internal air pressurization test if you really want to find it quickly. I was fortunate to be alerted to my problem from another member here who had the same model class C and had the same issue.

RE: Marathon driving

Great trip report. I love to see those, especially when they highlight a problem free trip. Thank you.!! Also, its great to see that my wife and myself are just like the rest of the folks describing their travel schedules and how they have evolved over time of becoming more "mature" See ya'all out on the road.....

RE: Awning replacement fabric adventure...oy

All great info . I changed out mine and it was an ok job. Gotta be real careful with the spring. I used the clamped on vise grip method to unwind it. The best advice for me so far is to specify an Acrylic fabric, not vinyl for my next one. Thanks Mr. Wizzard !!

RE: No City Water Pressure

Since no water from both the tank/pump supply and the city inlet. (water hose connection) All the sink aerators may be blocked with silt or scale.

Good advice here. I removed my carpet (except for under the dinnnette table because it was still nice) replaced it with a left over piece of linolium. Came out great. Got a aluminium strip (forgot the real name) for the transition at the edge under the table.

RE: water heater issue

Howdy, while I have used Dinosaur boards in the past (they are excellent with excellent support from my experience) I suggest you check the gas assembly completely for any spider web blockage or clogged jet. Also check the thermocouple for location and function. The thermocouple must be hot (in the flame) to keep the gas valve open. Try to rule out all before changing any circuit boards.

RE: Pinging

Ok. Interesting comment about HVAC control vac leak. Just fixed the vents not opening when the AC was on. Likely to be related. Also will bang on the cat con. to check. Again thanks for all the help.

RE: Pinging

Thanks for all replies. Couple things: New spark plugs at 68k miles without incident... Understood - I mean pre ignition here. NO rod knock - understand the difference It is a E350 chassis on Class C MH No CEL codes so it is minor at this point Will check exh manifold for cracks and igniton coils for cracks and high voltage leakage. How else can I check cat con for failing. There is no loss of power. Again Thanks for all replies - appreciate the help
