RE: 100K miles

100k just shows it was put together right , didn't blow up during break in . You probably know about the recall on the rear trailing arms for your chassis . Chances are the arms have already been replaced , so an alert just in case . The original Monaco is long gone so you will have to pay for it yourself . Source Engineering makes replacements . Details of the trailing arm issue: https://community.fmca.com/topic/570-serious-problem-some-monaco-holiday-rambler-safari-chassis/?tab=comments#comment-2686

RE: Allison 2500 downshift issue

Not familiar with the 2500. But, on all their larger transmissions you can check for DIAGNOSTIC CODES from this shift pad. See if this feature is available for your 2500.

RE: Brake fluid change?

I put changing brake fluid right up in the same category as injector flushing and the 3000 mile oil change. I view all three as nothing more than an add on money grab for the service writer. Sorry, but if one is discussing a HEAVY vehicle with hydraulic brakes, that statement is dangerous. Agree, hard to boil brake fluid in a PU, but different for a 20,000 pound plus motorhome with a toad!

RE: Transynd ??

If your unit came with Transynd it should not require changing unless you have some kind of transmission failure or it becomes contaminated. And, I would suggest that if this is the OE fluid and therefore at least 12 years old, it is well worth changing (along with the filter).

RE: Transynd ??

Or just go to any Allison dealer. Their prices (at least in our area) are not out of line. They sell it by the quart, gallon and 5 gallon pail. Also have the correct filter for your transmission.

RE: transmission cooler

Also, you need to be able to not "OVER-COOL" in cooler temperatures. Though the mechanics is a bit different, I installed a fuel cooler on the return line on my DP. Like ATF, there IS such as thing as fluid being too cool. So, made a cover for the cooler that velcro's in place for winter driving.

RE: Need new shocks Las Vegas area, any...

Installing shocks is NOT rocket science. Others with the same chassis (8 outboard air bags/shocks I assume) can chime in on any unforeseen difficulties. Most installations are well within the capabilities of any shade tree mechanic with 3/4" breaker bar, 3/4" to 1/2" adapter and 1/2" drive socket. Yes, air tools makes it easier, but I have installed probably 20 sets of shocks with no air tools. You might ask the manufacturer of the shock you choose for the name of a dealer near you.

RE: Road Report, Nogales to Zihuatanejo

\ A minute or so later I was stopped for going 80(mph). OK, inquiring minds want to know--what were you driving and WHERE in Mexico at 80 MPH!? BTW, targeting out of state vehicles is a well established policy in most countries/counties!

RE: Slide moving out

What kind of slide Options Power gear (usually a rack and pinion system) electric Work gear drive Hydraulic (HTH) Swinteck or however it's spelled (Wavy track on sides of slide) Accu-Slide (Cable cars) OTHER It will help to know what we need to fix. YUP, need to know what system you have.

RE: Help Switching to 40' Pusher

Slight correction-- Alpine brakes are all wheel HYDRAULIC over hydraulic disk brakes. Beginning in the 2001 model year 4 piston, fixed caliper disk brakes. Agree- very good handling chassis. Their ISL's were equipped with engine compression brakes. Many coaches with ISL's had exhaust brakes. The engine compression brake was an up-charge option.

RE: 50 amp coach on 30 amp power

Some of what happens may depend on how your 50A to 30A adapter/cord is wired. There are two choices. It may be wired so that one "leg" is completely ignored. If wired this way one of your AC and possibly some of your outlets will not workIf both legs are wired together, the worst case is that you will trip the breaker at the pedestal. You might even be able to run both AC units simultaneously (as long as they don't start simultaneously) or run both of your heaters I have never seen a 30 male to 50 female where the one hot on the 30 was only wired to ONE hot on the 50 amp side. Said another way, a "proper" 30 to 50 always connects the single hot on the 30 amp male end to both hots on the 50 amp female end. Would love to see a link to one wired any other way!

RE: 2 Years with a Older Class A

I suspect quite a lot of the cost is that you have higher standards than many owners. Many just defer needed maintenance and upgrades for the next owner! Enjoy your coach that you now have in excellent condition.

RE: Mystery

Ya, not a KM vs Miles. Good thought, but the math doesn't work. 47,000 KM times .6 miles/KM= 28,200 miles

RE: Emergency roadside assistance

Coach Net been great for us for 15 years. Like any insurance, it is easy to like a company until you have a problem. So, the operative question is how many times have you used their service and what as your experience? Not being negative, but want to make sure how to read anyone's post on insurance.

RE: What is this?

Some good points here. I believe all would agree that if the side walls have delamination-- RUN AWAY. If, as it appears that only the basement doors are delamed, the real questions are: 1. Could you live with that look (I know I/we could not)? 2. What would it take (work and/or $$) to repair the doors? How much below market is it/how much more $$ would it take to get one without those issues?

RE: Atwood Furnaces 8531 & 8520

Yes, it is extremely important that there is no connection between interior of the coach and the "combustion part" of the furnace due to Carbon Monoxide. A quick test is to find a smoker and have them blow smoke in the outside furnace inlet while you turn on the furnace. If you smell any cigarette smoke, repair before using. Depending on what gasket he is talking about, wonder why he did not replace it while in there??? BTW, I go around a CG looking for a smoker to do this exact tests on both furnaces once a year! They always seem to get a kick out of it.

RE: Suspension upgrade disappointment.

Not to say that you might have worn parts as said but my new E450 had to go on the alignment rack 3x till they felt it was right. They did a road-test between each adjustment. What did they change each time and what were the final numbers: Caster L/R Camber L/R Toe
