RE: Amps Draw and Voltage Drop Question 2

But, another way to look at it is how many amps are drawn from the battery. If smaller gauge wire, instead of the vast majority of the amps turning the motor some are turned into HEAT by the resistance in the wire. So, the answer really depends on how you phrase the question. Bottom line is you want to maximize the amps taken out of the battery that are turned into RPM by the motor, not wasted in the wire.

RE: Generator runs fine, but no electricity in coach

Yes, turn OFF and back ON the breakers on the generator itself.

RE: What is too hot

Not sure what the temp is, but if they hit 150 I would be slowing down! Actually, I would STOP and check for bad wheel bearing, brakes hanging up, etc.

RE: An Australian Class C liked by Lazydays

Yes, looks like a Class A from the few original post pictures. BTW, absolutely enjoyed our driving trip around eastern Australia in 2019. Arrive Cairns. Back from Adelaide. 7,500+ KM. Hello airbnb's! GREAT country. Yes, we rented a "patriotic" car-- Subaru OUTBACK!

RE: Does it matter?

Sway bar doesn't impact alignment and may help sway issue slightly. Guess you replaced idler arm (steering arm?) due to wear? Have your alignment shop set the caster close to the maximum spec. All good advice.

RE: Need Tires

247/75R22.5 is a pretty close match by other tire makers. Verify your rim size.

RE: Where to get steering alignment done for a class A?

Assuming no worn parts (we don't know how many miles on it, or if chassis lubrication has been done as it should) there isn't much to a front end "alignment" on that chassis. With its solid front axle, CAMBER can only be changed by bending the solid axle. Caster can only be changed by adding/subtracting solid metal shims (and caster is really not a significant factor when it comes to tire wear) Toe- IN is really the only normal "adjustment". And, it can be checked with nothing more than a tape measure. No exotic machinery needed. Yes, to check rear axle to frame alignment to insure that the coach is not "dog tracking" which can also affect tire wear, is a little more complex.

RE: Re-sealing Winnebago radius roof in "J" channel

I would NOT consider 5200. Tooooooo permanent. 4200 perhaps. But, would sure look at adhesion properties of it vs the Winnebago-recommended product. And would likely ask Winnebago their thoughts before venturing into a brave new world.

RE: Portable Wind Turbine as a power supplement?

This ECO-WORTHY solar power kit is amazing because it combines the power generation capabilities of a wind turbine with the sun-catching skills of a solar panel. With such a wide range of operations, this kit can offer the user with a virtually constant source of electricity. It's ideal for traveling to places that aren't as windy but receive a lot of sun, or vice versa. A little short on FACTS. Would like to see a wind speed vs output. The 400 watts they advertise is produced at 13 MPS= 29 MPH. WOW.

RE: Replace water pump in a 300 cummins c series

Simple answer-- YES.

RE: Steering stabilizers

Tell us what chassis for better feedback. Workhorse W or Ford F53???

RE: Dashboard gauges failure

Is this a Class B van or a Diesel Pusher. Need some more info. YUP.

RE: Xantrex Freedom 458 Plugged in 24/7 or Float Charger?

Yes, if properly programmed and you check battery water level occasionally, many of us DO leave them on 24/7.

RE: Cummins engine barely starts

Before spending $$$ on someone else, check both positive and ground connections between chassis battery and engine. Also, while someone else is cranking the engine, monitor chassis battery voltage at the battery and then at the starter with your DIGITAL VOLTMETER.

RE: Hellwig Sway Bars on 2021 24-footer

Track Bar? What is that? ..... Track bar= Panhard rod. It goes transverse (side to side) with one end connected to the chassis, the other to the axle. It allows for full up/down movement but minimizes side to side movement.

RE: Nissan versa flat towing

What year? Manual or automatic???

RE: No shore power. 33c Sunova

Bottom line is that you will have to pull out your VOLTMETER and see exactly where you go from "power to no power" on that line. We can speculate until the cows come home, but 15 minutes with a voltmeter will give you the FACTS.

RE: biobar jf

Hey, Wolfe, do you have any idea why the bottle of biobar includes the disclaimer against using it in 'on road vehicles'? Total speculation on my part, but it MAY adversely affect the new diesels with the much more complex emission systems.

RE: biobar jf

Yup, add the biocide NOW. If you have a long filler tube, follow with 4-5 gallons of diesel to make sure the biocide gets down into the tank. The biocide would do you any good if it is stuck in the filler neck or hose to the tank.

RE: Any Caterpillar experts here?

Brett Wolfe is the Cat expert on here. Hopefully he reads your post. I am pretty good on the "care and feeding" of Caterpillar engines (and Cummins for that matter), but not the electronic troubleshooting. Agree-- install the new ECU, reverify good solid connections, particularly the ground wire to block and THEN see what you have.
