RE: Need Help! Can't get anyone to work on my F53 6.8 engin

My son runs a service center on the north side of Atlanta. If worse comes to shove you can tow it up to him. He’s not cheap but he’s good.

RE: Won’t start

Agree with you Wolfe….but I’m old school… when we stop at a rest area so the wife can walk the dog and I can stretch my legs , I like to do a walk around my idling engine to make sure everything sounds okay and there are no leaks, same goes for a fuel stop. I’ve run/operated/owned large diesel engines all my life. Shutting them off for a short stop just doesn’t sit well

RE: Won’t start

Leave it idle while fueling…leave it idle at rest stops unless you’re going to be there for more than 15 minutes. Shutting down diesels without a 5-10 minute idle is not good. HOWEVER…I do not think this is your issue. You have something else going on. Check on a forum like Cummins engines on IRV2.

RE: Holiday Rambler anyone?

With Fleetwood taking over the HR line it is likely to be nothing more then a rebadged Bounder or Pace Arrow which are good class A gas models.

RE: Motorhome tires - recommendations.

Most of your Michelin tires are “80” sidewalls. More prone to cracking but offer smother ride. Comparing an aged out tire to a new tire is not a fair comparison.

RE: Which BIG RIG TRUCK atlas do you use?

Haven’t looked at an atlas in yrs. I used a Garmin gps most of the time, but lately found them to not be that accurate or precise on their directions. Google maps works for me. Overhead clearances are always marked. Know your limitations and enjoy.

RE: Motorhome tires - recommendations.

Over the yrs I have used many different brands of tires (Michelin, Goodyear, Toyo, sumitomo, Bridgestone, just to name a few) and with all issues being equal there was no noticeable difference between the brands. Factors that affect tire performance are…sidewall (70, 75 or 80) more sidewall better ride, ply rating ( more ply harsher ride) , air pressure.

RE: Filing up DEF

Because the engineers that design motor homes are not the sharpest tacks in the box. Look how many yrs it took them to finally figure out to hinge the basement doors horizontally.

RE: What Chassis do I have

Years back I had a 1991 Coachman Classic. It had a 460 ford. Performed well as long as all the spark plug wires were sound. Heat in the dog house was a bear. If memory serves….it was on an Oshkosh chassis.

RE: Slides out or autolevelers down first?

I have a Freightliner XC chassis with power gear leveling system. It says to deploy the slides before leveling or dumping the air. It appears their logic is that with the chassis supported by the air bags is better. They must feel that the jacks will flex the frame when leveling.

RE: Foggy windows help please

If your are a do it yourselfer, there is a kit available online that works very well. Kit includes everything you need to do a window for 120.00. Also has a video with good clear instructions. If you have more then one window, addition supplies can be ordered for around 60.00 per window.

RE: Heat pump blowing cold air

Are you sure about that Doug……I’ve had two motor homes with Aqua hot and neither would heat an RV in 40 degree temps with just the 120 Element. The diesel burner will need to be used at them temps.

RE: The horrible roads are killing the fun.

We just completed a trip from Atlanta to the Dakotas and back. All in all I didn’t think the roads were all that bad. There are some sections that are in need of repair but overall 90+% were pretty good. (We drive a Monaco Executive with a road master 10bag chassis). However, in this day and age one would think we could be doing a better job with our interstate roads. Last time we were down in Mexico, they were in the process of rebuilding their hwy 15. They were laying a very thick slab of concrete with a machine that was similar to an asphalt machine. The end product was basically seamless and very smooth. It will be interesting to see how this Hwy endures.
