  1. Trip from Asheville to Franklin NC

    Good morning, we are planning a trip from Momma Gerties campground to Franklin NC in July, just wondering if the highway between the two points is ok. Thanks for your input.
  2. Gasoline In Generator Crankcase: Onan 5500

    Thanks for all the info, we returned from our trip to Michigan and I did not run the gen set at all while on the road. Yesterday I returned the Bounder to the RV shop that replaced the carb and made the aware of the issue. The carb came from the local Onan dealer and they will replace it with and new one. My concern is I ran that gen set for about 2 hours prior to realizing there was a problem with the fuel in crankcase, what are the chances this has caused other damage to the generator. Thank you, Thomas.
  3. Gasoline In Generator Crankcase: Onan 5500

    Thank you, another WAG, would the main fuel tank vent not working properly and pressurizing the system cause gasoline to enter the genset crankcase. I have tried talking with the Ford techs and no one can tell me the system should be pressurized or not.
  4. Good morning. We just had a new control board and carb installed on our Onan 5500 a month ago, I ran the generator for an hour or so then shut it down when we arrived at Jekyll Island Campground. When we returned home and parked the MH in the driveway for cleanup I noticed an oil leak under the MH from the generator area. I pull the cover and checked the oil in the generator and it was running out of the fill port when the cap was removed. I drained oil from the crankcase and noticed the smell of gasoline in the oil. The MH is a 2013 Bounder 35K. and the generator has approximately 150 hrs. Any ideas on possible causes. Thank you. Thomas

  13. Best Towed Car Braking System

    Good morning, we are in the process of getting ready to make our trip to Moab this year. We are going to tow a Rubicon 4 door this year with our Bounder 35k with a v10 gasser. I am trying to decide which braking system would be best for our application, thanks in advance for your advice.
  14. Good morning, we are making the trip back to Moab starting the end of April, we have reservations at the Portal RV Resort in Moab, we stayed there last year and had a wonderful experience. Our trip will start from North Florida and we plan on following I-10 to San Antonio TX before we turn North. Last year we stopped in Destin, Dallas, Lubbock, Albuquerque, Sante Fe, Flagstaff, Sedona, Las Vegas, Moab, Denver and then headed back to Florida. The weather was chilly at nights until we reached Vegas the 3rd week of May. We also learned last year it is very important to watch the weather forecast mid year to avoid thunderstorms across the the US. I hope the helps a bit, have a great day.
