RE: Fuel injector hose leak on Monaco with Cummins engine

I don't usually post here but this is a dangerous situation. If this really is an injector line, DO NOT DRIVE IT or even start it with a rubber hose patch. That line has thousands of pounds of pressure - depending on the year, 20,000 PSI or more. Cummins usually has injector lines in stock. You need to replace it properly and torque to spec. Don't get your skin or face anywhere near that bad line while it's running! If it's just a rubber hose that has failed, it isn't an injector line. The only rubber lines would be those before the high pressure pump. All the lines between the pump and injectors are metal - no rubber.

RE: Fellow owner of 90's Sero Scotty D350 5.9L Cummins Diesel RV

First gen Dodges like your 92 only had one group 31 starting battery - if that helps.

RE: Onan’s New Inverter Based Generators - Mike Mas

Nothing new here. My 2003 Mountain Aire has a QD 7500 that uses the inverter technology. Thanks for the reply however this is new news as of 2021. Regretfully, I have to inform you that your 2003 Newmar does not have an Inverter based generator. When your genny starts up goes right to high speed. Regards - Mike QD7500

RE: Why do I keep blowing out tires on my truck?

All tires have been factory size at LT265/70R17. All have been E rated 10 ply. Current LTX M/S are rated at 3195 lb at 80 PSI. Very similar to the other tires I've had. You still need to verify the weight on the rear axle ! Seems odd, but you may have to shift to 16" rims and LT 285/75R16 tires which have a higher payload. What does the door sticker say for tire pressure ? If you are filling them to 80 psi cold, they will be running more than that hot ! Again, no to 16" wheels. They WONT FIT over the brakes.

RE: Why do I keep blowing out tires on my truck?

From what I can find online, the standard tire size for your truck is 265/75R16. The standard Defender weight rating is is 2756 lbs/tire. There is an LT265R16 (load range E - 10 ply rating) version that is 3415 lbs/tire. They also make a LT285/75R16 version that is 3750 lbs/tire. After multiple blowouts I would want these ! Inflate to the pressure recommended by the TIRE MANUFACTURER ! Wrong. OP has 17" wheels.

RE: Mt Rainier and North Cascades

It's about 20 minutes down the road from Leavenworth but I highly recommend Wenatchee River county park. It's a quiet, green oasis with lots of shade. If you want to be closer to Leavenworth, Icicle River RV park is also very nice. All the others are either noisy, dusty or both.

RE: slide topper bracket-aluminum siding

Both of mine are attached to the flat flange above that area - from the factory (Arctic Fox). No issues what so ever other than the awning themselves are cheap krap.

RE: GFI Breaker

Let's get back on the OP's problem. He has power leaving on a circuit identified as GFI. Some of his receptacles do not work. He has found one GFCI receptacle. I believe he may have another. Another possibility is the feed through function is not working in the one he found. Ooh, that's an interesting idea. A couple of years ago I replaced a GFCI in a friends kitchen only to find nothing after it worked. I finally figured out that in some point in time manufacturers swapped the input and output locations on newer GFCI's and the new ones just don't work if reversed (I just copied the existing wiring). I wonder if that's what's going on here.. If the OP's RV is anything like my Arctic Fox, wiring stuff backwards is a real possibility.

RE: Maintaining air pressure in your tires

A while back I stumbled upon an article that indicated the schrader valve isn't supposed to be the main device for holding air in a tire, the cap is. I always buy metal caps with rubber seals just in case the schrader starts leaking. With all due respect, that article had to have been in the National Enquirer right under the "Les Schwab was abducted by aliens" article! I didn't catch any respect there but as an engineer type, I keep my mind open to learning new things about absolutely anything and never let preconceived notions keep me from doing so. Anecdotal. Back in 1978 my buddy's brother allowed us to use his brothers new Corvette for an evening. For some reason long forgotten, we checked the air pressure in the tires. One tire had a slight leak at the schrader valve when I checked it. Being a dumb 17 y/o kid, I just screwed the cap back on and we went on our way. That tire held air all night and was still up the next day when I dropped by their house.

RE: Armoured extension cord

My FIL ran his cord across the driveway by laying the cord at the front edge of the garage slab. He dug down just an inch or two, laid the cord against the slab and his truck tires didn't even touch it or put pressure on it.

RE: 2013 Ram 6.7 With Some Motor Issues

Sadly, it's usually the turbo's actuator that causes that sort of thing.

RE: Bouncy new shocks

Shocks have a break-in period. Until they wear-in, the stiction can be brutal. I once installed new struts on our Eldorado and thought I had ruined it - it road like a kids wagon! Two weeks later it rode like a.. well, Cadillac.

RE: When to throw in the towel...

I'm more tempted to give it all up because reservations are getting impossible to get and the price of private CG's is just getting stupid. I recently tried to plan a stay in Spokane Wa. and the CG's were $77 to $90/night. NOT GONNA HAPPEN.

There may be a firmwear update for the trans. Best of luck - hope it's cheap to fix!

RE: 2013 Ram 6.7 With Some Motor Issues

Mine is a manual trans and I'm generally doing about 1000~1200 RPM's at 30. Why would you want it to do more? And what is poor mileage? Not much you can do. Excessive clatter can mean injection pressures are out of wack and without proper equipment, it's impossible to check. I would just make sure they actually have a diesel tech or are farming it out to one. It's good to get it checked out though before damage occurs. Don't know what to say about your ham. ;)Just sounds like engine lugs at that low rpm. I do run in TH when it turns on but that is the real issue why going into dealer. It has plenty of power, and pulling up grade at 1800 and with the load it sounded like something was going to fall off. I was thinking valve adjustment. Mileage has gone down towing or not. Just didn't want dealer to chase me down a rabbit hole Unless it's got 150K or more miles, probably not valve adj and they don't make that much noise when they need it anyway from what I've seen with the few of them I've adjusted. There are a number of items in the fuel system that can make it sound like an old clattering diesel and some of them can cause excessive pressures or damaging spikes. I think getting it to a good mechanic quickly is smart. The hard part is finding one.
