  1. Where is the Fuse??

    A friend of mine has a 2004 Holiday Rambler Navigator 45 footer with a Power Cord Reel in the rear corner of drivers side. His power cord reel is not working and he would like to fine the fuse that his schematic says he has. Does anyone know where the fuse might be located? Joe will be grateful for any help. Herman

  3. I have 2001 Safari Zanzibar with a ACME dash a/c unit and it seems like it is not putting out very much air when heating or a/c. I removed the blower and tested all the speeds and it worked fine. I saw that the damper arm was opening by watching the damper arm on side of unit next to blower motor. I crawled under the front of motorhome to check if air intake was plugged it seemed ok and the damper was opened. I can feel little air on the drivers side vents and little on passenger. When I turned on foot vents a lot of air came out but those are small vents. Very little air on defrost. Is this how these work. 77000 miles . Looks like blower fan has been replaced. Looks like it has three dampers on this unit. What is the likely hood of one of those not opening. New owner. Thanks Troy
  4. Neutral Reversed Warning Light On Protecter

    When I plug the motorhome into 120 volt garage plug electrical system I get 2 green leds and 1 Red led with the notice 1 leg open and neutral crossed. There is no power the the system inside the coach. What do I need to do to correct this. I started the generator and the electrical system worked just fine and the coach worked fine last weekend at the campground during a rally ? Michael
  5. Glow Plugs Life Expectancy?

    Hello, had a CEL yesterday, and brought my Mercedes Benz to the dealership for a scan.. turns out that it was bad glow plugs at only 28,000 miles. I acquired this vehicle at 26,000 and the dealership said it was the first time they ever saw a vehicle with such few miles and this problem. Glow plug # 4 went bad, but I figured that it would not be long before the others failed as well, so, for an extra hour of labor, they replaced all six .. one would have been a minimum of two hours labor, so 3 hours for all six seemed reasonable. My question is whether it's possible if the original owners didn't follow the two step starting procedure, could this have prematurely worn out the glow plugs. What's the average time or mileage for these item? Also, with a modern diesel engine like the Mercedes Benz 3 litre V6, having a failed glow plugs would affect engine performance and fuel economy?
  6. We have a CAT C9 in our 2007 Fleetwood Revolution LE. We experienced a "Check Engine" light and some rough running while driving in Texas. The ECM told us we had an electrical connection issue on injector #2. The issue was intermittent, with the light coming on sometimes, and staying off at others. We took it to Mustang CAT in El Campo, Texas to get it fixed. After a day and a half of working on, they were not able to find the issue (it would not occur while they had it). They changed the fuel pressure regulator (pressure was a bit low, and the plunger looked a bit worn--after only 43k miles!). They also changed the fuel filter and water separator. $1200+ later, we were on our way....my confidence was not very high that it was actually fixed. Sure enough, a couple hours down the road, the "Check Engine" came back again. We backtracked to another Mustang CAT dealer (in Beaumont, TX)....by the time we got there, the light was out, and it was running fine.....so no repair work was done. The ECM confirmed that it was once again injector #2 that was malfunctioning. Finally, while driving a couple days later in Louisiana, the light and rough running returned. We went to Louisiana CAT in Bossier City. Fortunately, it was running on 5 cylinders when we got there, and the technician was able to capture the event on his laptop. The next day, he found the issue.......the terminal for the #2 injector wire was not securely seated in the electrical connector for the injector wiring harness. The harness was replaced -- the technician (Gary) came in on Saturday to get us back on the road -- and we drove several more days without incident. Kudos to Gary at Louisiana CAT in Bossier City. His experience with CAT engines helped him find and fix the problem. I would take my CAT-powered equipment to these folks any time. I do not have similar praise for the crew at Mustang CAT in El Campo, Texas. They apparently did not have the experience to enable them to find an intermittent electrical issue. As a result, I spent $1200+ dollars at their store and got little for it (regulator and new filters). I would not go back there again. They were not interested in helping with the cost of the real repair in Louisiana.
  7. We own a 2000 Pace Arrow V-10 that needs to last us until we retire from motorhoming, a lifestyle we began in 1978. This is our third unit. My technican cannot locate the cause of a "check engine" light. None of the codes he tries will clear the problem. This is the second such instance, with another wire, occurring a year or more apart. He says it will be necessary to trace EVERY wire in the harness to locate what he feels is a short, and then run a redundant wire to fix the issue. He estimates a cost of $500-$1500 for this fix. I seldom see a fix come in on the low end. Resetting the light is temporary. I don't want to drive the unit with an active code and risk damaging the engine or exhaust system. Can anyone provide me with some alternatives that may resolve this problem?
  8. Road Light

    I have a 2010 Allegro Bus 43QGP. On the main switch console, on the left as you enter the coach, there is a button on the bottom right that says road light. I can't figure out what it does. The manual refers to it, but doesn't explain. My dealer service dept. didn't know either. Any ideas ?
  9. Surge Damage

    1999 Harney Renegade (Class A) Diesel pusher, Allison 6 speed Transmission (Cat Engine) This coach was later manufactured by Safari for a short period. Went out to take the coach for exercise. Generator started but would not supply power to the coach. With shore power plugged in, engine would not turn over. Forward AC would not start and refrigerator was completely dead. Aft AC is OK. Furnace would not start from forward Thermostat, but would from the rear thermostat. Found I could start the engine by turning on the ignition switch and using the start feature at the rear service panel . Once the engine started, the "check engine lite" and the "do not shift" lite remained illuminated. Checking the automatic Transfer switch I was able to determine power was available to the switch both from shore power and from the Generator, did not know where to check the output. Once the engine started the kwikee entrance steps retracted and will not extend. I attempted to have the coach towed to the shop but the Tow Truck as so enormous they couldn't maneuver in the subdivision. The Allison push button control panel has all the LED segments of the indicator lit, and they stay lit even when ignition switch is off. After consulting with the shop, they said it would be OK to put the tranny in gear and move the coach enough to position to suit the tow truck, when we tried the coach would not go into gear. I really need to get the coach into gear.
  10. Engine Won't Start

    Hi, I have a 2003 Safari Cheetah with Caterpillar 330 Engine. I had a problem with the house battery cutoff switch, and the house battery solenoid was replaced. Ordered new switch from Monaco, they sent wrong switch, new correct switch is on the way! In the meantime, now, engine will not turn over, panel lights go on.(except engine heater light.) Also, leveling lights are on. I have checked all fuses, batteries are fully charged, electrolyte is checked, Starter won't crank at all..this all happened after working on the house battery cutoff switch and solenoid was replaced? Is there starter relay or solenoid to check? The wires to the house battery switch are not connected - waiting for the new switch . Need Help!
  11. Inverter Type

    I need to replace my Magnum inverter. It is a modified sine wave inverter 2000 W . What are the pros & cons of upgrading to a more expensive model type of the sine wave type? In other words should I stick with modified sine inverter or go for a pure sine wave inverter? I have all the usual rv electronics, tvs, computer, cell phone chargers, microwave convection oven.

  13. I have a Heart Freedom 20 (2000 watt) inverter in my 1995 Safari Serengeti motorhome. It was more trouble than it was worth and I left it off mostly all the time. Several years ago it quit inverting but still functioned as a converter until recently when that failed also. I don't really want to replace it with another inverter. Can I have it replaced with a converter?
  14. I was wondering if while hooked up to 50 Amp service and my 2011 Fleetwood Discovery 40G reads 30 Amps, if it will hurt anything or just limit what all I can run in the coach? I checked the 50 amp plug at the box which is a standard 4 post (X,Y,W, &G) plug, but it looks like the electrician wired it with 120 coming off of either L1 or L2 but not both because I see zero (0) volts across X and Y with my voltmeter. I see 120 Volts between X and W and Y and W and X and G and Y and G and zero (0) between W and G. Since it looks like the 120 is coming from the same side, which means the phases will not be balanced, is that a fire hazard on the coach side or the park's side? Also I would be curious as to why someone would wire a 50 Amp service in this manner? Does it save money somehow? I checked the feeds coming into the bottom of the power box and there are 4 wires coming in and 4 going out, so they did not jump the poles in RV service box, which must mean they did it at the main circuit box. Thanks!
  15. First Scare

    In the process of the delivery and our purchase, the seller picked up a new chassis battery and I agreed to split the cost with him. However, he delivered the coach on the old battery. I installed the new battery. I consider myself mechanically proficient, and I have changed batteries on dozens of vehicles over the years. This battery has the GM type side terminals. I thought I had them tight, but I am also concerned about over-torquing things (don't ask me why). I had no electrical problems driving the coach over to ALT RV Service for the brake work, etc. They had checked out the electrical system as part of their "100 point inspection." They test-drove it 2 or 3 times before everything was done and we picked up our new-to-us motorhome. After we had paid the bill, I headed home with the coach, followed by Grandma in her car. At the top of the hill on Rte 202 in Winthrop, I got into the left lane, preparing to turn left on my way to a gas station. Suddenly everything went dead! No engine, no restart, no power steering, no power brakes. I did not want to end up with a dead coach on the left side of the road! I checked the mirrors. Fortunately, Grandma was well behind me and there was no one else really close. I yanked the thing to the right and still had enough momentum to get across the highway and coast to a stop on the right side of the road. Grandma pulled in behind me, quite concerned about "what the **** happened." We called ALT RV Service and the mechanic came over. As we were checking things over, we found that the problem was that the ground terminal on the battery had loosened. With a computer-controlled, electrically fuel-injected engine, things come to a halt immediately if battery contact is lost. Some of the older engines would keep running on the alternator, but not the current ones! As it turned out, the problem was really my own fault. I have not had the problem again in about 1200 miles. You can bet that I will make sure those battery terminals stay tight from now on! Years ago, when I took pilot training, my instructors taught me to always be scanning for a place to make an emergency landing. I think the same advice applies while driving a truck, bus or motor coach. Actually, this incident wasn't the first time I have had a vehicle suddenly quit on me. However, I must admit it was a little scary in this big coach which I was not totally used to driving yet.
  16. 50 Amp EMS Display Panel

    I have a 2003 Endeavor with the problem of the EMS DISPLAY PANEL goes out at times. Then comes back after some time-- some times 4 hrs. Then again longer. What do I do or what steps do I take? Any ideals? Thanks for any help I can get. ****
  17. Have 40' ft diesel pusher (2001 Monaco) w 2 ac's. One AC (front) works fine during the day and we turn it off at night. The other AC (rear) comes on at night and works until early morning (around 7), then shuts off and will not come on again until night. Had it checked and they say it is fine. Both AC's are left on auto at 69. Any suggestions?
  18. No Lights, Water Heater, Or A/C

    Vehicle: 2003 Holiday Rambler Ambassador. Last night we had a huge rain storm while parked at our RV park. Our lights went out and I thought we lost power, but the fan and printer were still on. We figured out that none of our lights work, nor the hot water heater or air conditioning. However, the outlets, TV, microwave, and fridge work. We have tried resetting everything and putting in new light bulbs, but nothing seems to be fixing the issue. Nothing is lit up on the power board. Any suggestions to fix this strange electrical problem?
  19. Low Voltage Shore Power?

    I am new to RVing and own a 2012 Itasca Sunstar 30' 30 amp. Soon after I buying our RV, I purchased a 30 amp surge protector and have used it consistently. I have stayed in many private and public campgrounds with no power problems. But recently I was staying at an private campground which I have stayed at three times before. It was warm (85) and was running the AC. Then the microwave started chirping (display light went off and on) and the AC stated flipping off and on. This lasted about 3-5 seconds and then everything returned to normal. I turned off the AC as soon as I could and then waited for a few minutes before I restarted the AC. I didn't have another episode until the next day with a similar pattern. It once happened in the morning without running any AC or heavy electrical devices. I tested the power with a volt meter but it showed between 116-120 volts. I could never capture the voltage reading during one of these episodes though. The surge protector never tripped during these conditions. I even took the RV into a dealer and had them check over my 120v systems and they ran the AC for four hours without incident. I then asked for a different site which had both 50 and 30 amp power but I still had these once a day problems. My question is - was I experiencing a low voltage condition that was not low enough to trip the surge protector? What are the symptoms of a low voltage condition? What else could I do to protect my RV from electrical issues?
  20. I was pulling out my hair, suffering sporatic blown flasher fuses, on a recent trip. Then, the flasher unit itself failed. It was a maiden voyage with our new-to-us Patriot Thunder, our guests rolled their eyes every time I slid open the window to signal with my arm, got honked at, pulled into a truck stop to change yet another set of fuses. Finally, I unplugged the dolly lights and didn't blow another fuse. Today, after three hours of diagnostics and disassembling the dolly electrical system, I finally spotted the culprit: two tiny bites on a pair of wires going through a brand-new finder to the light assembly bolted to the outside. Yes, after catastrophic blowouts on BOTH sides of the dolly due to inferior OEM tires, I had to install new fenders. They arrive prewired, are simply mounted and plugged in. Turns out, at the factory the person who installed the lights put so much pressure on the wiring where it passes through the 1/4" hole that the insulation was severed inside of 2,000 miles of use. Of course, none of the pass-throughs are engineered with a 20 cent rubber grommet to protect the wiring; so, this kind of failure was bound to be repeated, had I not wrapped the wires in thick rubber tape. It seems dollies are designed to sell, rather than to last.
  21. 12 Volt Electrical Puzzle

    I own a 2008 Itasca Suncruiser and have a number of issues with my 12v electrical. I'm not sure if they are all related or not. First the coach heater that runs off the engine while driving has no power to the switch, but power at the fuse box. Second, the house batteries don't charge while driving... no 12 v power going to the battery mode solenoid. Third, no power going to the 6 amp breaker ( under the entry step) that controls the step when the engine is turned on and the 5 amp step alarm fuse (under the drivers side) keeps blowing. If anyone knows what might be causing all these issues, I would be very thankful. It's puzzled me for over 5 months. Thanks, M. Kenway
  22. On August 7 our 2005 Itasca Meridian experienced a short in the main ac wire bundle just aft of the shore power line attach point (aft of the left rear wheels). The fire occurred about 1:20 in the afternoon while we were out for the afternoon, and thanks to Good Samaritans in the park the fire was extinguished before the fire department arrived. Unfortunately, 90-95% of the smoke went up through the bed housing (through a 6 inch square hole in the floor- through which wires passed) and thoroughly coated EVERYTHING in the coach and killing our dog. The fire department tried valiantly to resuscitate our dog to no avail. Absolutely everything in the coach, even in closed drawers behind doors (as in the bathroom) was completely coated with a black, oily and highly toxic residue. The fire chief on the scene warned us to wear masks when entering the coach to retrieve personal belongings we thought we could salvage. Everything below the main floor (as in the basement) was OK, but the entire bedroom was completely water soaked as well as smoke filled. The Fire Marshal removed a covering of the main electrical distribution area inside the shore power compartment and found that an ac power line had rubbed on a 90 degree sheet metal corner and finally worn the insulation off creating a short which started the fire. I would advise anyone owning an Itasca made during this era to remove the covering (nominally 6 screws) and check the wire harness for chaffing and mitigate any potential rubbing of wire and sheet metal.
  23. I have a 30 amp motorhome and I want to install a receptacle in my garage 85 feet from breaker box. I plan on purchasing a newer MH in the future so I want to install a 50 amp receptacle. It's 85 feet from breaker to receptacle and 25 feet to motorhome. 50 amp power cords on motorhomes are typically 6/3 + 8/1 ground. The chart for electrical wire size says #4 for lengths over 100’. http://www.myrv.us/electric/ Is there any reason to use greater than #6 considering the MH power cord size? Is the distance of the MH power cord figured into the distance to determine wire size? Would #6 wire be sufficient? It seems to me running #4 wire 85’ through the attic only to have #6 for the last 25 feet would defeat the purpose of using #4. Thanks Charlie
  24. I have an FMCA friend that just had a considerable amount of damage to the left rear of his Challenger by Damon. A blowout caused several dilemmas for him. Wiring was pulled down out of the area above the wheel well looks like AC. DC coach wiring from the Workhorse chassis was torn apart in the wheel well. LP gas line was also damaged there. Two storage door latches were trashed. Lastly the bottom of his sewer compartment now has a rather large area torn out of it. Left side exhaust was cut off just before the turn towards the side of the body. Can anybody out there help out this poor soul? Would anyone know how he could get a wiring diagram? THANX in advance F28571
  25. What can be done about this error message? Is it possible to reset? If so what is the procedure?
