RE: AC doesn't keep up with heat

Remove the AC roof cover. Then remove the cover that shields the condenser. Use some cleaner (no rinse to clean the condenser coil.

RE: Onan 4000 generator cranks but won't start

FYI.... For anyone in the Seattle area we have a great generator tech named Chuck. He's in Auburn, Wa. He agreed to come out to me (Renton-Highlands) and diagnose my Onan Microquiet 4K which would only run if I hold the start button. I initially checked with a volt meter some pins and narrowed the issue down to either a bad control board or voltage regulator. When Chuck showed up he threw his Flight Systems G-Man 360 on it and within 5 min bingo...bad voltage regulator. The voltage regulator that was on it had been replaced back in 7/11 with a Flight Systems 305. I was leaning at it being a bad control board. So if you need a generator looked at call Chuck (253) 820-1388

RE: 80's 454 fuel supply challenges

For TBI troubleshooting... 94-95 TBI years were 26-32psi fuel pressure. You also need to be sure you're running the correct flow rated injectors for your year engine. Only use AC Delco parts. Do not cheap out. Even a bad TPS can cause the issue you're having. You mention 220 - 280 temps? The dash gauge even have 280? Or is it 260? It is normal behavior to see these era RVs go as high as ~240 on long grade pulls. What is important is to be certain you hear the clutch fan kicking in. That is what prevents the temp from boiling over. A normal operating range on the flats is generally 205 - 217 or so. Your dash gauge will rarely reflect that accurately. Usually read higher by as much as 10-2X degrees depending on ambient temp. Water also cools better than coolant so get the ratio at min 50/50 (distilled water). Pre-mix is already mixed with distilled water. With 454s I like 60 percent water vs 40 percent coolant. Those year coaches run with a 195 T-stat. Do not use one less than that. It will throw off the PCM. I'd also pull the distributor and replace the pick-up coil and visually inspect the stator ring. The ring is known to crack messing with timing.

Solar LED monitor

The following is my thread I started. For those who have or may run across this issue with the small solar monitor LED on the interior AC cover.

RE: Breakdown Information

Replaced both exhaust doughnuts (7/16/21) 1994 Southwind Storm 28ft 454 TBI w/4L80E (no air pump/s) Passenger side one blew while in southern Ca. back on the 11th July (my planned start day to return home). Replaced both but was unable to replace the springs and nuts. Roll forward...after returning to Renton, Wa. the passenger side one was nearly gone again. I noticed the nuts were bottoming out prior to applying tension via the springs to the flange-pipe allowing for a leak. Pulled the pipe down on both sides again and replaced the springs and nuts. Also applied lots of copper seize on everything. Once done I started the engine a few times to heat cycle everything and re-check. All nice and quiet now. Used Fel-Pro doughnuts. Also have on order an EGR (electric driven) and a trans filter (will change the trans fluid).

RE: Transmission advice

Indeed. Once the spark plug wire is exposed the wire/s are shot and need replacing. Be sure to use some hi temp heat socks or sheathing to cover the wires and that the wires are in all the appropriate looms.

RE: Oil change on the road

If we mine Oil from the ground, why is it such a big deal if it's put back into the ground? Exactly. The oil is in far worse shape prior to being refined and in even worse shape prior to being ran in a vehicle for thousands of miles.

RE: Streak remover

Get some 3M drip rail trim on the sides where it streaks after you've cleaned them off use Mothers more streaks.

RE: RV selling

It's a hot RV market right now, shouldn't have too much trouble unloading it. Was. With the fuel prices currently market is not what it was 7 months ago.

RE: Allison 3000 transmission

No combustion process going on in a transmission so a time based interval would not apply. Trans syn fluid can live 100K easily.
