RE: Just an observation and wondering

I think every one is missing the specific technology of the Prius. It is a hybrid - meaning it has a small gas fired engine in addition to the electric drive motor and batteries. The energy dissipated from the brakes, wheels turning and the gas engine rotation, recharges the batteries. The control computer decides which is better suited (for performance and effeciency) which drive system is better and switches back and forth between them automatically. The AC works as described above.

RE: The importance of a TPMS Tire Pressure Monitoring System

You all may think I am a simpleton, but I carry a short solid wooden club under the drivers seat. Every time I re-fuel, I grab it and smack each of the 6 tires. If they don't make that distinctive thud - I check into it..... I believe that what many full time truckers use.

2002 E350 Dog House. Any smaller ones without front section

Howdy, just came off a trip that required many trips from front seats to back. It is aggravatingly tight where your foot has to pass between the seat and the dog house ( that removable front section with the cup holders) Does any one know of a smaller dog house available any where or at least a thinner clip on front section to improve that space . Thanks to all who reply.

RE: Strange noise from engine..."Whirling" sound

Agree with 2112's post. End of tension spring. Do not remove is my recommendation. Why do you want to remove it. (i'm pretty sure it does not work like a timing belt tensioner where in that case, your remove the pin to allow the plunger to come out.)

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

While that 15 seconds run time seems short for this issue, all my Onan 4k watt gens. Required new fuel pumps. The known issue shows up as the engine runs for a while then quits. Just FYI. But that 15 secs. may be related to some other issue like you said on related to the carb. Depending on the year, the choke linkage has also caused me problems in the past.

RE: water issue Outback 300rb

Just to share my experience.... I was happy to find out my roof leak was not from the roof! It was actually from the under the alumium corner trim, where the vertical wall met the horizontal wall, below the over cab bed. I had to re-make and re-seal the corner but that fixed it. So these leaks can be tricky to fine. Suggest internal air pressurization test if you really want to find it quickly. I was fortunate to be alerted to my problem from another member here who had the same model class C and had the same issue.

RE: Marathon driving

Great trip report. I love to see those, especially when they highlight a problem free trip. Thank you.!! Also, its great to see that my wife and myself are just like the rest of the folks describing their travel schedules and how they have evolved over time of becoming more "mature" See ya'all out on the road.....

RE: Awning replacement fabric adventure...oy

All great info . I changed out mine and it was an ok job. Gotta be real careful with the spring. I used the clamped on vise grip method to unwind it. The best advice for me so far is to specify an Acrylic fabric, not vinyl for my next one. Thanks Mr. Wizzard !!

RE: No City Water Pressure

Since no water from both the tank/pump supply and the city inlet. (water hose connection) All the sink aerators may be blocked with silt or scale.

Good advice here. I removed my carpet (except for under the dinnnette table because it was still nice) replaced it with a left over piece of linolium. Came out great. Got a aluminium strip (forgot the real name) for the transition at the edge under the table.

RE: water heater issue

Howdy, while I have used Dinosaur boards in the past (they are excellent with excellent support from my experience) I suggest you check the gas assembly completely for any spider web blockage or clogged jet. Also check the thermocouple for location and function. The thermocouple must be hot (in the flame) to keep the gas valve open. Try to rule out all before changing any circuit boards.

RE: Pinging

Ok. Interesting comment about HVAC control vac leak. Just fixed the vents not opening when the AC was on. Likely to be related. Also will bang on the cat con. to check. Again thanks for all the help.

RE: Pinging

Thanks for all replies. Couple things: New spark plugs at 68k miles without incident... Understood - I mean pre ignition here. NO rod knock - understand the difference It is a E350 chassis on Class C MH No CEL codes so it is minor at this point Will check exh manifold for cracks and igniton coils for cracks and high voltage leakage. How else can I check cat con for failing. There is no loss of power. Again Thanks for all replies - appreciate the help

Howdy, 02 Ford V10 with 90 k miles. Noticed some pinging under hard acceleration. Tried a tank of premium gas - still there. Wondering if any one has had any experience in changing the Knock Sensors on that engine in a class C. Located under intake manifold and wondering if they can be reached with out removing manifold because of the rear access to the engine when the dog house is removed. Thank s to all who reply. Jack

RE: Overhang construction

Want to comment on PNichols entry. I also have a similarly constructed 03 Winnebago with the aluminum frame. Best construction by far of the 3 classC units I have had in the past and rebuilt many areas. The only weakness is the window seal which is not as bad as some. But the aluminum outside corner molding is woefully too small. I looked into getting some wider but not easy with the needed rounded bending. So I remove all and caulked the joints with proflex, then applied eternabond over the corners (required cutting the tape in half) then reinstalled the molding. No issues after several years. In the rear corners, made my own wider molding by cutting down PVC square fence post. Now the molding is 1.5" on each "leg". Also same caluk/eternabond treatment.

RE: Class C that's easy to fix?

Just my 2 cents here. Never worked on class A but have heard they are harder to work on (engine bay at least) then class C. Class C is not too bad but more time consuming because you may have to go from dog house inside to outside more. One thing that comes to mind for this discussion, don't think the class C engine bay is that bad once the air cleaner set up is removed as it blocks all access to the front of the engine. (belts, alternator, water pump....) There are very few class C with pick up truck chassis (Scotty Sero comes to mind) and they are very desirable and expensive. like stated on a class C removing the air filter set up make working on the engine much more reasonable

RE: Generator stalls

Good story I like the happy ending. What I like best is you followed up with the solution - Thank you.

RE: Old automotive battery charger question

Agree 100% I gotta keep an old "dumb" charger around for batteries that are to depleted for my modern smart charger to work.

RE: 4x4 conversion video

Excellent video. I enjoyed watching it, thanks for posting. I also decided that I am probably never going to change my class c to 4wd (actually 6wd) but what I would like to do is put on an electrically actuated rear differential locker. Even with all the weight and dual rear wheels, you can still get stuck easily with the open differential. I have a diff locker on my PU truck and it works great. I'd really like that flexibility on my class C
