    Taking broken things apart, because if there already broken I can't breake it and might learn how to fix whatever it might be! Trying to tie trout fly's, learned how years ago and with my love to learn something new let that skill slid away.

  1. Roadiestx, Welcome to the FMCA Forum ! List the Inverter / charger make - Xantrex , Magnum or other. There are some fairly sharp members on the forum and just maybe they can give you a lead. You might try this link and see if one of the listed Solar Electricians might service your model - They are almost identical to what is used in coaches - They just use sunshine to keep the batteries charged, but the system work just the same - Check them out with the BBB. I'm thinking there should be one or two in the area. http://www.homeadvisor.com/c.Solar.Lakeland.FL.-14820.html Rich. Out of the Box again.
  2. One has to understand that when there is no contract with any organization when a beta offering is offered by an organization that is exactly what it is. It is a mining offer to see what the market looks like for a possible offering and how a contract offering will be structured. One has to ask questions before making any decision on whether the offer is backed up by a contract at any given point or when a contract will be offered and the service is indeed available. The devil is always in the details. Rich.
  3. Vincent, No AC but Do the Fans run? on the units? There is a low voltage control issue and with all 3 units fans not operating or no AC. The problem is at a point common to all of them. That kind of points to a common control point. From the information I have - it looks like all the unit have a 3 amp fuse and this size fuse is common size for a 12 volt DC circuit. the Flat telephone style cables are seldom used to supply any power just logic signals. Link to a manual that might help, there is no real good information on how the 12 volt DC is distributed to each unit. http://bryantrv.com/docs2/docs/dt_ac_hp_service_2012.pdf Rich.
  4. Could you post the model of the Generator ? Have You recently changed the coolant? How many hrs. on the unit? How Old is the coach the generator is in and is the generator mounted on a slide out ? Rich.
  5. Big Kelly, Suction lines can be repaired! need to know the Inside Diameter(ID)if you can get to the brake and have space to repair it! Rich.
  6. Steve, I do have one manual for the Oshkosh chassis. So if you wish I can send you a copy. Rather large file to down load, so a fast internet connection helps. Rich
  7. Robert, I have been remiss - forgot that you might want to check the fuel lift pump pressure also. Some engines are setup so you can attach the pressure gauge others are not and fuel pressure is important. When was the last time that was checked? Rich.
  8. When did the fuel filters get changed last? ECM's do not fail often and I have a feeling it is trying to tell you something, even though you are apparently not getting a check engine code. Air filter was last changed, when ? Rich.
  9. edandviv, Some pictures, but I have never removed the radiator / CAC on a coach like yours. Rich Rear Radiator and CAC pictures.pdf
  10. Just found out that they(CW) are closing the Gander Mountain store in our area and the store -that they bought back about 8 years ago, was sold back to the original family owners and that is a good thing. They(the original)owners where in business for years and treated there customers very well. The real kicker is many of there employs left after the CW takeover and have now comeback to work for the family operation. Speaks volume's regarding how employees felt ! Rich.
  11. Just read on the RV Village group - that the office has decided to allow attendees with day passes to attend the seminars. Over all a good thought, but if we have members that want to attend a seminar with limited setting and have paid the full price for the Rally and can not get in to the one or ones they want. There might be some very upset people. How will this issue be resolved, many might signup prior to the seminar, if they have the list before arriving, but that information is distributed when attendees arrive and some of the seminars are well attended - with only one time slot in some cases ! Just trying to be proactive on this one. As the day passes have never been allowed to attend the seminars in the past as far as I know. Rich.

  13. Herman, Changing out to a different brand does not always work. Ran into that problem when setting up long distant learning centers a few times. one needs to have both models they are interested in, in the same room. Then one would run into interference from LED lighting or florescent lights. The only way to allow full feature usage was to add in some specific control equipment. solved some of those issues with RF signal controllers within a specific frequency band(s) depending on what frequencies where not being used is a distance far enough away. It was always challenging. Using multi-band codex equipment worked the best, but that salutation is way beyond the norm. Both cost wise and space requirements in a coach. We tend to want to have all the whistles and bells with very crowded spectrum's. Rich.
  14. In this case the OP wants to be able to control both sets with remotes anytime and any function, if I'm understanding the content of the post. Rich.
  15. DBathurst. The real problem starts with the controls using the same IR transmitted control codes. Both IR receivers react to the transmitted codes. The only way to make them both work is to blind them both, by using a LED mounted directly over each receiver - then attaching a fiber optic cable to each remote controller placed at a location that one will use to control each set . One looses the capability to just move the controllers around. The second possibility gets more involved. One would need to convert one of the sets to receive only a Green or other IR signal, that the other set will not see and ignore any signal except for the unit used with that TV. Going into reprogramming the second sets microprocessor and transmitter is beyond most people, because the transmitted binary codes need to be totally different. Like one set understanding English and the second one understanding French. Rich.
