RE: 2 Starter Solenoids on a 1994 e350?

My 1987 Citation had two solenoids. It was a FRED. I've seen that before, but can't find a block diagram. Could someone direct me to diagrams of FRED, BIRD and BIM systems? TIA, Phil

RE: 2 Starter Solenoids on a 1994 e350?

Could be a bad starter. I'm thinking maybe I should replace all 3, relay, solenoid and starter, they all may be 29 years old. Thanks!

2 Starter Solenoids on a 1994 e350?

I'm having issues starting my 1994 Fleetwood Jamboree Rallye. Many times when turning the key to start, I hear a click, then nothing. Battery is fine, it is not the clicking from a low battery. I'm just getting the one click of the solenoid energizing. Now it's doing it so often I'm afraid of getting stranded. A while back I was reading that the e350 has TWO starter solenoids, or maybe it is just motorhomes. And now further surfing indicates there may be a starter solenoid switch (or relay) and a starter solenoid. The pic below shows both(?). I am a tiny bit familiar with both, but did not know that BOTH of these are on this vehicle. Could someone shed some light on this topic? TIA, Phil

Leveling Scissor Jacks

Thinking about installing 4 of these to level my 13k# class c. I've read NOT to use stabilizer Jack's to level, but these are listed as Leveling Scissor Jacks and are rated at 10k# each. Should be strong enough. Also mounting them at a 45deg angle. Comments please. Leveling Scissor Jack Set - 24" Lift - 10,000 lbs - QTY 2 Thanks, Phil

How to reconnect awning lever?

The latch lever is not in the loop. It's been this way since we've had it and just use the long strap rod to push it up to unroll. How can I fix this WITHOUT disassembling the awning arm? THANKS!

RE: Show us what you cook on!

I'm trying to get some consistency using a portable grill. A few match-light briquettes in the bottom of the charcoal starter and then filled 2/3 with regular, 20 minutes and I have a full layer of hot coals. 7 minutes, then flip, another 7 and they are medium-well. Delicious! (I can't get consistency using the fire rings, the depths change dramatically for site to site.)

RE: Leak down test on the LP gas system, leak detected.

Too Long, Don't Read? I think I need to replace the propane valves on the water heater AND the furnace. The propane sniffer is going off near the burners of both appliances! Update: April I took it to the service guy to replace the gas valve, but he found a loose fitting and tightened it up. (Yeah, it was loose because I couldn't get it out without buying more tools). When I got it home everything was fine. Saturday, the next morning the LP alarm was going off again. Called the dealer, service desk said to check battery voltage, it may alarm on low voltage. Checked it, 12.4. Called back and told them to put a note on record about this and I will get it taken care of after we get back from our trip. Fast fwd to August (it felt like we were camping every other week for 3 months! It wasn't that often, but felt like it. We took two groups of grandkids with us several trips. That was fun.) The beginning of Aug I was going to test the propane again. When I turned on the propane I could feel it hissing out from around the valve stem. ****, so we took it to the shop to replace the valve on the propane tank. 2 days later they called and said it was ready and that it wasn't the valve, just a loose connection at the POL fitting. (I should have caught that myself!) Go it home, turned on the propane and it was still hissing around the POL valve! I took the regulator off to check it out. The o-ring looked chewed up, so I went to Ace Hardware to get a new one. BTW, it was 5/8 x 7/16 x 3/32, bought 2. Now let's test again. Turned on propane, 24hrs later, no alarm, the next day it was alarming again! Broke out the propane sniffer, NOTHING. Could not get it sniff anything. MAYBE it wasn't sensitive enough. Checked the specs, should alarm at 50ppm. Checked the detector, it was saying 17x100ppm, 1700ppm. The sniffer should be going off! Hmmm, took it outside the sniff around the tank, nothing. But it did go off in the water heater burn tunnel. (Same as the furnace when all this started!) ALSO, when we do use the water heater on propane, everytime it lights there is a small explosion like a pop-whoosh-burn, but that may be normal, OR it could be that the burn tunnel is full of propane and the explosion may be larger than it should. (Again, same as the furnace.) Right now I've moved onto other items on the todo list. I think I'm going to make sure the propane is off (it is now) clear out any propane from inside the water heater and furnace and start testing again. There is a leak somewhere and I need to find it and fix it so we can use the furnace in a few months when it turns cold. Still having fun with the camper! TTYL, Phil

RE: Firestone TransForce HT2 LT225 /75 R16 115R E1 ?

Ahhhhhh... The camper has new shoes! 6 for $1382. (Yes, they were CV commercial.) BUT... I put my TPMS on when I got home and all read 80+psi. I've been running 65 on the fronts and 60 on all 4 rear tires, just like the RV sticker says. I found a chart for the commercial tires and used it. 4600# on the front and 8400# on the rear. I'm thinking 65psi all around. This might get you close to the chart Chart Edit: Hmmm, bad link. I'll see if I can find the correct link. Fixed it? Thanks, Phil

SC to Maine, our first long trip

We've had our camper since Oct last year and have been the SC State Parks, BTW they are fantastic! We are planning to leave around April to see our son who lives near Hershey, PA and then onto my SIL near Buffalo, NY. After that we are thinking about going up to. There's a lot to plan and using the RV Life trip planner. I've been searching for the top attractions in each state, but that's overwhelming. So for those that know, what are some "must see" locations along the way? I'd like it to be those stops that will forever live in my mind, not just something to check off the list. What are some ideas for Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire... Thanks! Phil

RE: Roof repairs

OMG I was not expecting those replies! For now I'm going to patch it with eternabond and hope for the best. Hopefully I'll get a few years out of it. Thanks for the replies.

Roof repairs

Hello all, Been busy with other stuff and need to update a few threads, but this first: Roof leaks... On our last trip it rained a lot. When leaving the park, water poured out from the front and rear of the overhead bunk into cab, down onto the dash and down our backs. Probably a cup full but felt like gallons. Sooooo I went on top today to do an inspection. Above the front clearance lights, I'm sure these were the culprits. I'm thinking eternabond there. Maybe some dicor first then eternabond. Thoughts? (That water that is showing came from the garden hose, I took it up on top just in case I need it.) Peeling roof coat, I'm thinking I should peel off these flaps, maybe lightly sand down those areas, scrub the roof and then put on a seal coat. Product and method recommendations? And around the vent covers? Should I lay some eternabond down here or something else? All thoughts are appreciated! Thanks, Phil Above front clearance lights Peeling roof coat Vent covers

RE: Tire covers?

Good info for the newbie! We are camping monthly in our class c. I think I will use that money toward a new set of tires which will be needed soon as those are almost 7 years old. Thanks to all!

Tire covers?

Firstly do tire covers help, not much or a lot? What should I look for when buying tire covers? Any recommendations on which ones to buy or stay away from? Thanks, Phil

RE: Replacement furnace valve? Removing valve?

I'm trying to remove the furnace valve. How do I loosen this gas fitting? There is the aluminum fitting on the left, the brass fitting in the middle and another brass thin fitting on the right up against the furnace wall. Is the thin brass nut on the right supposed to be held still with a backing wrench while turning the brass middle fitting? Or holding aluminum fitting still on the left and turning the brass middle fitting? Depending on which one is to be held still will determine which way I turn the middle fitting. Thanks!

RE: Stuck in yard, ruts. Install driveway? Ideas please.

I was going to mention the cost, but forgot to. It was initially $650, but after developing a blister on my palm, I asked about how much to scrape the grass off the top. So $680 was the final price. I rounded it to $700 and had him fill in a few low spots with the scrapings. BTW, his dually got stuck dumping the load and had to use his bobcat to pull it out.

RE: Stuck in yard, ruts. Install driveway? Ideas please.

I did it, rather had it done. Scraped the grass off the top, put down driveway cloth, had 6 tons of crusher run spread and compacted, then another 6 tons. It is SOLID! Forgot to take pics of the entire process, but here's a couple after the first dump and compaction, and then done. Will soon be anchoring the landscaping timbers.
