RE: Fuel economy and additives

For best MPG's find out where the low-high torque curve is on your engine and keep it in that range when driving on the highway. With my RV (94 Southwind Storm 28ft) that is roughly 58-62mph. Go north of 62 and the MPG's drop fast. My last track from Renton, Wa. to Medford, Or. I netted 10.4mpg. Coming back same stretch it was 8.4mpg (headwind). No towing.

RE: Intermittent ignition issue

For starters the distributor only has 1 ignition module. Not 2. Th ignition switch will be on the backside lower end of the steering column. I'd replace it (I did on mine). Use Delco parts whenever possible. Thermal grease must be used on the bottom-side of the ICM not dielectric grease. The pick up coil can only be replaced by removing the distributor from the engine. Then the distributor shaft must be removed from the distributor body. I'm willing to bet that the (pick up coil) is what is causing your sudden engine off scenario. I just replaced both my ICM and pick up coil in my RV myself. The following pic is of the original pick up coil after having been in my RV since new 1994 with 58,301 miles on it....

RE: 92 Fleetwood Souithwind - opinions

I own a 1994 Fleetwood Southwind Storm on a P3X chassis. It does not have the autopark system (thank god). The RV's overall weight will determine if it comes with the autopark system. When I purchased the RV it was just shy of 45,XXX miles (US) and had the roof redone, exhaust manifolds redone. The generator (Micro4K) had only 346hrs. Everything in the house worked perfect and was not molested with hacks of any sort. I've since then replaced most if not all the engine electrical items such as TPS, MAP sensor, IAC, Idle control solenoid, Purge valve. Frt./Rear VSS sensors, Trans shift solenoids, Trans wire harness connector, O2 Sensor, T-stat, Radiator hoses, by-pass hose, New auxiliary fan, New fan relay, New ignition switch, Full axle rebuild, New fridge, New LP regulator, New ICM and pick up coil, New spark plug wires, plugs, cap, rotor, New house batteries, new chassis battery etc...(likely forgot some other items...LOL!) That was all replaced before waiting for one or more of them to fail at an unlikely time (on the road). PM work is what will save you from an unfortunate event on the road. The 454 TBI is a very reliable engine and relatively easy to work on. Mine also does not have any air pumps(smog ****).

RE: Availability of service

That's completely unacceptable for anyone to make someone wait 7 days for a starter replacement. Absolutely unacceptable. I don't care how busy a shop says they are. Unacceptable.
