  1. Roof A/C compressor not working?

    Many newer coaches use 12 VDC for the electronic thermostat. So, check battery voltage.
  2. Engine Braking

    Yes, it does seem to have wandered off-track and degraded to personal comments/attacks. Closed.
  3. Yes, we drove over 3,000 km's in the last 10 days (Peugeot 2008 diesel 5 speed-- 47 mpg). Very safe country and a lot of fun. Dianne had lined up airbandb's throughout the country. Volcanoes, thermal hot springs, excellent vineyards. Just another great adventure in the larger world. Have not seen a single American since arriving.
  4. Geography fact: It is SUMMER down here! Reasonable temps down south of here (extreme south end of Pan American Highway). In Santiago, currently 88 degrees F. A/C working well! Fruits and veggies in season (heck we get a lot of them in Texas). Wine REALLY in season. Life is good.
  5. Hydraulic fluid capacity?

    Yes, are you talking about your hydraulic jacks or power steering/brake boost?
  6. Camping Without A Toad

    Just a suggestion, but if you want specific CG information, better to start a new thread. Very few will see it under a "camping without a toad" thread.
  7. Storing 2015 DS 6h/d power

    Bswdds, Yes, welcome to the FMCA Forum. Please tell us what inverter/CHARGER you have. That will facilitate much more accurate replies.
  8. Slide Canopy / Water & Snow

    For CG advice, might want to start a separate thread. Not likely to have many read it under a slide-canopy-water-snow thread. Thanks. Brett
  9. PacBrake

    Yes, the Caterpillar ECM can be configured several ways in terms of activation of the exhaust brake. Manual is one-- only comes on when the electric switch for the PacBrake is turned on. Latch-- Comes on when you step on the service brakes. Stays on until you step on the throttle whether you remain on the brake pedal or not. There is one other choice, but I don't have my manuals handy right now. Any Caterpillar dealer could tell you how yours is configured in 5 minutes by plugging into the diagnostic plug.
  10. PacBrake

    Bill Edwards contact info: http://community.fmca.com/profile/22868-rsbilledwards/?wr=eyJhcHAiOiJmb3J1bXMiLCJtb2R1bGUiOiJmb3J1bXMtY29tbWVudCIsImlkXzEiOjExNDgxLCJpZF8yIjo4OTA4NX0= To send him a message, click on the "envelope". One of two issues: your coach has a brake signal to the Caterpillar ECM AND, repeat AND, it has been programmed for LATCH MODE (exhaust brake comes on when service brake is applies and stays on until the throttle is applied) OR you have an after-market brake relay that does much the same thing. Yes, you could have a relay sticking causing this as well.
  11. Bad Loves Fuel Stop

    Joe, So, the actual charge was correct?
  12. Dallas Area RV Park Recommendation

    OK, closing this one down.
  13. 05 Monaco Dynasty Hydraulic Fluid Cooler Blown

    Yes, you will want to check with Monaco for options for the hydraulic fluid, as you said this is the hydraulic system cooler, not transmission cooler. While the system in empty, be sure to change the hydraulic filter(s).
  14. House Lights Dead

    The "not working" list sounds like a problem with the 12 VDC side of the electrical system. Verify that your "salesman switch" is ON (usually located near the entrance door). Second would be to check battery voltage, then fuses between the batteries and 12 VDC fuse panel.
  15. Yes, so please start a new topic for any discussion not related to the original. Once new topics are interwoven with the original separating them is extremely difficult. Thanks.
