RE: Brake Fluid Still Milky

Perhaps someone added something else other than the correct brake fluid some time in the last 17 years.

RE: 2001 Diesel Pusher with Dynomax Chassis

The "frame part" is no longer available, but most can be easily repaired. The components (axles, transmission, engine, etc) are common parts are are shared by many other motorhomes and OTR trucks.

RE: Oil change question

Yes if you tend to use the Class A to go a 1/4 mile to the grocery then by all means change it. OR, if you are one of those people who start the engine every couple of weeks and let it idle without driving!

RE: Oil change question

Agree, I wouldn't change it UNLESS you have started it multiple times without driving it far enough to get the OIL, not just coolant up to operating temperature. Yes if condensation in crankcase, I would change it. Oil is cheap-- engines, not so much.

RE: rv inspector

Tell us what you are looking at so we have an idea of whether you need someone familiar with an older Ford chassis, never Chevy chassis, etc.

RE: Impression on new coach

Yes, he needs to use the "edit feature" on the original post, then ask the moderator to delete all the other posts trying to figure out what coach he really has.

RE: Leece Deville alternator

If this is a DUVAC alternator, these are the connections: B+ to battery isolator (large-gauge wire) Ground-- may be separate wire or may ground through engine (metal to metal) Ignition hot small terminal/excite terminal-- gets power from any ignition hot connection in engine compartment Sense small terminal-- small gauge wire connected anywhere on the "battery side of the battery isolator". The last two are small gauge wires and can break. Pretty easy to check with a digital voltmeter.

RE: 2006 Fleetwood Discovery 330 CAT dash lights

Contact your chassis maker with your VIN and issues.

RE: Atwood 8525 furnace overheating, gas pressure too high?

Start by verifying that air return and all ducts are open and not crimped, etc. If that doesn't do it, next step is to check propane pressure with a MANOMETER or just replace the propane regulator. Can't help with what you need to do to properly reassemble or replace the parts you dismantled.

RE: smoking diesel exhaust

Lots of good "what to check" posts here. Many of them FREE to anyone who cares to check. Checking air flow and fuel filters is NOT rocket science.

RE: smoking diesel exhaust

Looked up black smoke from diesel on internet and results said over-fueling. Fuel injector wear. Check it out on the net for your model. Sure. OR, "under airing". Either/both lead to an over-rich mixture. And, a lot of over-fueling is done on purpose for those who want more HP and aren't concerned what they/others breath.

RE: smoking diesel exhaust

Could also be low turbo boost (less air for the same/old amount of fuel). Could be: turbo, cracked exhaust manifold, leak in the CAC, leak in plumbing from turbo to intake manifold, or plugged air inlet/filter. I would sure start with a visual check. Found a bird's nest in the coach-side air inlet on a coach where he had already spent thousands of $$ on "fixes".

RE: I found it!! The converter I mean.

Your 2500 watt inverter will NOT run your A/C units, block heater, etc! Best way to use an inverter is to have a SUB-PANEL for those things you want to be able to run from the inverter.

RE: Looking for Transmission cooler radiator 03 Diplomat

Hayden has a number of different size coolers.

RE: National class A replacement water manifold/valve

A picture or brand name would help us identify your manifold.

RE: Tire mismatch

I agree about replacing all due to age alone. On an undriven axle, only handling would be the performance issue. Put that mismatch on a driven axle and watch the differential explode in flames within 30 miles at highway speeds. Don’t ask how I know that. Brake performance would also be effected. And if ABS brakes, it would likely throw a code.

RE: Tire mismatch

We’ve had this rv for about 7 years and just noticed that the front tires are different sizes. This says it all-- the mismatched tires are at least 7 years old. Replace with the proper size and load range per your GVWR plaque.

RE: Issue with house batteries

For the alternator- When we went on the trip, the person that sold us the new batteries had told us to move our trickle charger to the house batteries instead of the chassis. So we had batteries charging.. from themselves. I suspect this is why we lost all power when driving. Sorry, the trickle charger has absolutely NOTHING to do with the alternator charging both battery banks when the engine is running. You really need someone familiar with RV's to troubleshoot your charging system-- both from shore power/generator AND alternator.
