RE: Tv problem

Terminology is a little different over here. By aerial are you referring to an antenna, which is what we use to receive regular tv stations? I suppose an oyster dish and sky box is a satellite system. This rear tv, is it hooked to the satellite or to an antenna? I keep a length of coax cable ( 50 ft ) which we can purchase at Wal-mart. If you temporarily substitute a long coax by just running it along the floor to see if it cures the snowy picture.

RE: Holiday Rambler in tank fuel pump quit. Cant find relay?

Have you noticed the tank sucking air when you remove the cap after driving? If it is the vent you could probably loosen the fill cap and solve the problem Don't drive like that if the tank is full as it may slosh fuel out.

RE: Holiday Rambler in tank fuel pump quit. Cant find relay?

Doug is right, those wires are for the electronic sender. Have you changed the fuel filters? There should be 2. Most problems like yours are filters. Diesel fuel can develop/grow algae, scum or whatever in the tank and can quickly clog filters. If you have that you will probably see it inside the primary filter, on top. It is crazy but the fuel is sucked all the way from the tank, there are after market pumps that can be used.

RE: Holiday Rambler in tank fuel pump quit. Cant find relay?

Are you sure it has a fuel pump in the tank? My Windsor doesn't have that, it has an electric fuel lift pump mounted on the engine. I can hear it run for a while when I turn the ignition on. What sort of trouble are you having?

RE: Selinoid

There are more than one type of solenoids. What are you working on? The leveling or?

RE: Monaco

My Monaco has a remote start switch in the engine compartment. When looking around back there people often inadvertently flip that switch without realizing it. Mine is about head high on the left side. If I put my left hand up to support myself that's about where my hand would be

RE: Roof Air Conditioner removal

I pulled mine up with a rope also. The thing that hasn't been mentioned that I did is I left it in the box for a smooth ride then put the old in the box and let it down. They are not that hard to manage.

RE: Cummins ISB 5.9 Cranks but no fire-ECM power.

You have found that 12v can back feed at times making diagnoses difficult. The fact that your step is not responding properly implies there may be some kind of problem in the ignition circuit. Add to that the key start works only about 50% of the time makes it look even more like something in the ignition circuit. I would try repairing the step and hope that will repair your no start problem too. Ignition switches are relatively cheap you could try replacing it. I think you can reach up behind the ign switch to make sure the wires are not loose It doesn't seem likely 5 different ECMs would all be defective. I just read a thread on IRV2 where a poster had the same issue A new ignition sw fixed his.

RE: Is there any difference in DRIVING a gas class A vs diesel?

You'll never know until you drive some diesels. The first time we tried out a diesel I thought something was wrong with it the brakes felt funny and the ride felt mushy/soft. I'll tell you it didn't take long for us to decide that mushy ride was fantastic and the air brakes, just feel different. I don't notice them feeling different anymore. Most diesels are actually a little underpowered until you get into the bigger models with bigger engines. I'm not criticizing, each model is built to fit someones pocketbook. Buying used allows one to buy a coach they would never dream of buying new. If my DW would let me we would drive a big ole Prevost or perhaps a Foretravel but thankfully she has more common sense than me. Frankly, the quiteness is the thing we appreciate most. We can talk, listen to music, radio, or tv .

RE: My windshield nightmare.

Here in Tx, I think it was that way or maybe the glass co just forgave the $50 deductible But on the last windshield, they charged me the $50 saying it is required now. I don't know if it is actually a law or just something the glass & insurance companies started doing. The girl in the office didn't know, didn't care either

RE: My windshield nightmare.

Sometimes they use a blower like you may have seen to dry carpet or you can use a blower out of a home heating & air cond unit. The blower can be made to blow through a window or door that is sealed with plastic, cardboard, etc

RE: Need seals for differential

There should be a tag on the differential to identify it . Any big truck parts or NAPA should have what you need . Unless you are planning to replace them yourself why not let the shop identify and locate parts ? Ray

RE: tv reception with air antenna

Maybe your TV is like mine . Each time we set up camp in a different location I have to do a channel search . Its not like old tvs these newer TVs have to find and program themselves for each channel it finds . Go to menu then channels then auto channel search . Mine is annoying because it takes so long it tells me this may take up to 20 minutes . Don't think it ever took that long but its still to long . I have a sensor device that helps me locate the direction of stations first .

RE: New RVer with some diesel fuel issues.

Tell us what coach and engine you have Was you looking for 3 fuel filters ? That's how it sounded but all I have seen is 2 filters , primary and secondary . If you have crud in the tank it can clog the primary fairly quick so that's the one I would replace when it acts up until it cures it or you find another problem . I don't think the crud hides on the bottom , it lurks at different levels . Startron makes a product for diesel that is supposed to digest the crud in diesel , you could try that along with Biobor (sp) to stop crud from forming . The fill necks on my Monaco are not replaceable . When you say the fill necks are disgusting , inside , outside or ? The tank should have a vent tube on top , make sure it is clear . You don't want a vacuum forming in the tank . Did you hear air rush in when removing the fuel cap ? That would be after driving for awhile .

RE: 2006 travel supreme

Sounds to me like your hot water valve is not stopping the flow of hot water through the heater core . The hot will easily over power your A/C . Usually when this is the problem it will cool at first before the engine warms up . You also should feel more heat on one side of the valve if it working . My valve is on the firewall where the heater hoses enter the HVAC .
