RE: Removing TV

Makes sense to me why not call the RV factory for directions?

RE: Electrical issue

I once received a valuable piece of advice from a FAA inspector in charge of making sure my aircraft radio shop followed the rules. He said that if you don’t know how to do what your doing correctly then don’t do it.

RE: Electrical issue

A RV 30TT receptacle is used only for RVs. It is for that use only. It is 30 amp 125 volt. Then how come an electrician wired 220 vac to it?

RE: Electrical issue

So it is OK to ignore the indicated 125V embossed on the connector? https://www.myrv.us/electric/img/TT-30%20P-R.jpg width=600 That embossed voltage doesn’t mean a thing if the circuit is wired incorrectly to the outlet. Too bad that that particular outlet can be connected to either 110 or 220 vac depending on the intended function. It should be 110 vac for RV hookups.

RE: Onan 4K generator

I know you probably already checked this, but, make sure the fuel level in your tank is enough to reach the pickup tube for the generator. That problem will not cause the starter motor to fail to crank. With not getting any fuel the generator should crank but just won’t start.

RE: Maintaining air pressure in your tires

The tire stem valve that you are referring to is known as a Schrader valve.

RE: Help! Onan 4K generator refuses to start and stay on

So you should see only a 3.3% mileage increase using ethanol free fuel - not 23%. If you are seeing a 23% increase you are somehow creating extra energy and you should patent your process. All of that can be explained in one word, “adulteration”. Energy content is calculated based on lab calculations, sort of like the amount of horsepower a vehicle is stated to produce, based on perfect conditions in a test cell. Ethanol is a gift from heaven for gas station owners. Ever wonder why a huge percentage of gas station owners come from just one region of the world? Or why they happily pay seemingly ridiculous prices to buy those stations? Ethanol. Anyone can buy it, no questions asked. When’s it’s blended into gas it sells for the same price as gasoline which is about $0.50 more than ethanol. Unfortunately it’s very hygroscopic, it likes water so much it will absorb it right out of the air. Water has a very low energy content. The bottom line is that fuel, spiked with water-laden ethanol, can easily reduce mileage by 30% in fuel-hungry vehicles like motorhomes. Well the misinformation never ends. I agree that ethanol is hydroscopic but in order for it to absorb any significant water it would have to be exposed to the outside atmosphere in order to absorb it. 10% ethanol gas is stored in under found tanks with limited exposure to moisture. Also if it were possible for the ethanol to absorb enough water to reduce the mpg range of the fuel by 30%, since the fuel only contained 10% ethanol to begin with, mathematically the only energy remaining to propel the vehicle is coming from the gas and no energy coming from the ethanol content. And finally if the water laden fuel actually is reducing the mileage by 30%, it will affect all vehicles using it equally not just fuel hungry motorhomes.

RE: Help! Onan 4K generator refuses to start and stay on

First I was referring to both premium and regular fuels both containing 10% ethanol. Fuels (both regular and premium) containing 10% ethanol have about 3.3% less energy (BTU’s) than fuels without ethanol. You can lookup the BTU energy contend on both types of fuel on the internet. By the way premium fuel contains the same energy content as does regular fuel. So you should see only a 3.3% mileage increase using ethanol free fuel - not 23%. If you are seeing a 23% increase you are somehow creating extra energy and you should patent your process.

RE: Help! Onan 4K generator refuses to start and stay on

JaxDad, In most states 10% ethanol is also added to premium gas. Secondly, for vehicles calling for the use of 87 octane regular gas, using premium fuel absolutely will not increase your mileage. Premium fuel also is not any ‘cleaner’ than regular fuel that some believe. The only difference in the two fuels is the higher octane (anti-knock) rating and the approximately $0.60/gallon extra cost that you are just wasting using premium.

RE: Help! Onan 4K generator refuses to start and stay on

Are you below 1/4 tank of gas in your RV. I think it prevents you from using the generator if your RV fuel tank is below 1/4 tank. If that was true the generator would not even start and run for 15 seconds. Problem sounds to me that you may have a defective Onan fuel pump.

RE: Propane tank

You might check out Scan Gauge. It is a much better system for knowing how much is in your tanks. Takes some time to install, but not all that hard. I have a Scan Gauge. It connects into the vehicle’s OBI port but does not report fuel levels in either the vehicle’s fuel tank nor the propane tank.

RE: 2001 Minnie Winnie

Why would you want to replace the whole slide out when you really only need to replace the motor?

RE: Tire Recommendations

I highly recommend the Firestone Transforce HT tire. On my 3rd set and never had a flat or blowout.

RE: Towing a dura max diesel chevy pickup

That 1 ton pickup probably weighs at least 6000 lbs. Why do you want to tow something so dam heavy?

And what good is a big 24V battery when Class C appliances run on 12V dc?

RE: Michelin's replacement for 225/75 16 LTX M/S2 ?

Paying to fill your tires with nitrogen is a waste of money. Normal air already contains 78% nitrogen and is free!

RE: Review on the new 7.3 Ford V*

The 7.3L V8 engine they are referring to in this thread is a new engine appearing only now in 2021 Fords. The engine you had years ago was probably the 460 cu-in V8 - a totally different engine. By the way, what is an cerderator?

RE: Help! Onan 4K generator refuses to start and stay on

My vote is that you have a weak/inoperative electric fuel pump on your Onan generator

RE: Help! Onan 4K generator refuses to start and stay on

Disconnect the fuel hose between the output of the generator’s electric fuel pump leading to the carburetor. Then hold down on the generator’s STOP button. This should turn on the fuel pump’s priming function and cause fuel to run out of the pump. No fuel - probably a bad fuel pump.
