RE: RV Insurance

Try Auto Owners Insurance. They had the best rates for RV's, and my other vehicles. Auto Owners Insurance

RE: Onan Marquis 5500 Model 5.5 BGMFA11578G

I am guessing that you have a bad/weak chassis battery. When using the boost switch you bring the house batteries in to the circuit and they overcome the weak chassis batteries.

RE: Onan Marquis 5500 Model 5.5 BGMFA11578G

Try holding your dash "boost" switch when you try to start the generator. This will connect both the house and the chassis batteries to the generator starter circuit.

RE: California Bill 1346

California is doing so well that they don't have quite as many brown outs, or rolling black outs as they used to have, thanks to the petroleum fired generating plants. :B

RE: California Bill 1346

Everything in California, including cars, should be electric and rechargeable because we all know that California has unlimited electrical capacity. :B

RE: rv mattress

Any upholstery shop can make you a mattress according to your specs. You can pick the type of foam that you want, cover material, layers of foam, etc. We had them put a zipper on the cover so that it could be washed occasionally. The cost will be about 1/2 of what a mattress specialty store will charge you.

RE: 12 Volt reset ??

Almost everything is computer controlled now so doing a reset is not too unusual. My Monaco coach would occasionally go into limp mode and required a 12 volt reset. This might last for 10-20,000 miles before I had to do it again. The same goes for the occasional check engine light. Just disconnect the battery for a minute or so and see if it pops up again. A lot of times that reset is all it takes. I never had issues with my slide controller but I did have issues with my energy management system. This is possibly what was causing your issues. A reset cured that also. Through the years I have found that my first troubleshooting task for anything that uses electrical power is to remove power and do a reset and see if that corrects the problem.

RE: Safety steer

Doug, What you suspect is Sumo spring is actually the stock factory bumpers that come with a Workhorse "W" chassis. They come in different colors depending on the axle weight. IN addition to your front end alignment as recommended, you may want to consider a thrust angle alignment that insures that your rear axle is in perfect alignment with the front axle. I am sure that you have seen vehicles going down the road looking like they are "crabbing". A front end only alignment will not correct this. The problem is that most truck alignment shops cannot do this so you will have to search for one that has the proper equipment.

RE: How to remove Captain's Chair pedestal from floor of RV

On my coach the nuts were welded on the underside so everything could be done from the top. Good luck with your recovery. I had L4,L5, S1 fused and the recovery takes a few months. I had replaced my captains chairs before the surgery.

RE: I did not know

Any of the larger chassis RV's(like Safari, Monaco, Holiday Rambler, etc) with the 8.1L GM engine had the Allison 1000 transmission. The smaller chassis with the 8.1L engines had the GM transmissions.

RE: Hydraulic stabilizers down during storage

when my coach was not being used I supported the frame with jack stands to keep the weight off of the springs as well as the tires. I was on a concrete slab. I have to think that most full timers keep their levelers down most of the time.

RE: Jam nuts & extenders

I'm guessing but I think he is asking about the lug bolts with the added threads to screw on the lug nut that holds the simulated stainless steel wheel cover. In other words you remove on nut, remove the wheel cover, and then you can remove the lugs that holds the wheel on. If that is the case, I would guess that a place that supplies truck chassis parts should be able to find what you need.

RE: I did not know

Many Class A RV's have an Allison transmission.

RE: A/C Issues??

If you can see behind the cabinets above the dash you may find that the manufacturers only used fiberglass insulation, which tends to sag. This means that a lot of heat/cool is lost through the front cap. I used spray foam to insulate that area and it helped a lot, especially during the Winter when I used to get condensation dripping from behind the cabinets.

RE: Class A repaint cost any ideas

Go to one of the Miami Lowriders car shows. I'm sure that you will be able to find a very talented artist that would be glad to paint your rig for thousands less than most shops. If you have ever seen any of the paint jobs on their cars you can see the talent and a lot of them were painted in their own garage or driveway. Having painted a couple of airplanes, cars, motorcycles, and motorhomes I don't worry too much about a vehicle painted outside. That is what color sanding and buffing is for which is to remove any blemishes. Keep in mind that the materials for a good paint job is not cheap.

RE: Advice please

I know that I have had great luck using the Gorilla products. Perhaps you may find one of their adhesives that will work the best. The most important thing is that you use something to get inside the gap and clean the surfaces with alcohol first to insure a good bond. Determine what the composition is of the two surfaces and then do a search for the best adhesive.

RE: You're kidding...Right?

Don't fill BOTH the fresh water and waste tanks. There is no need. Put the amount of fresh water that you normally think you will need for your trip and then assume that as you use the fresh water it will end up in one of the waste tanks.

RE: 2003 Workhorse W22 running horrible

The recall for the fuel rail leak is supposedly for only 2004-2006 8.1L engines but here it is. Perhaps your 2003 was a late model year production. Fuel rail clip

RE: 2003 Workhorse W22 running horrible

If you check the dip stick and it smells like gasoline, drain the oil and change it before any damage is done. Gasoline not only does not lubricate but it washers the oil from the bearings and can cause catastrophic damage. Find your fuel leak first. None of the things mentioned, like fuel regulator, MAF, etc WILL cause fuel to leak on to the ground. Those items will affect the fuel ratio to the cylinders but not cause a leak to the ground. I suspect that you have an EXTERNAL leak in one of the fuel lines that is causing fuel to leak. This leak may also be causing air to enter the system and affect your air/fuel ratio. If you find and fix the external fuel leak, your other symptoms may disappear. DO NOT over think all of the codes showing up. I suspect the external fuel leak is the main cause of your problems.

RE: The wandering coach

Weight distribution and tire pressure are the first two things I would check. If the front axle is too light, it will wander. Most coaches handle better with the front axle close to max. Tire pressure is also very important and a 4 wheel weight will tell you what pressure is best for your coach. Have it weighed fully loaded as you travel with full fuel, as much fresh water as you normally carry, and all passengers. After this, then you need to look at alignment. A 4 wheel thrust angle alignment is more expensive but it insures that your rear axle is in exact alignment with the front axle. After those things are check, then you are looking for worn/loose suspension components. Start with the cheap things first before you spend any money on any accessories.
