Great to hear! No telling how many of these are out there! I hope more folks stumble upon this thread like I did so they can get their reel operational again as well.

Thanks

Are you talking about this?

I didn't know there was such a thing. Surely the manufacturer can help you find one.

I also have the shoreline power cable in my 2005 Allegro Bus. Instead of the gear drive failing on mine, it was the brushes on the commutator. They were sticking in the brush holder and became pitted so bad from arcing that they got hot and stuck in the holder. Failure was having only a single phase from shore power on 50 amp service. I contacted the manufacturer and they no longer make my model and the only repair kits they sell are for the gear replacement.

I searched the internet and found the following company that makes brushes that fit with only being shortened from 0.75 inches to 0.50 inches. Cleaned and polished brush holder and used old springs from original brushes since they had more travel. Also cleaned and polished commutator. The company is Helwig Carbon Products, Inc. 8900 West Tower Ave, P.O. Box 240160, Milwaukee, WI 54224-9008. (414) 354-2411. Part number 30003675022601. Cost was $15.66 each.

I ordered 6 so I would have two spares. Total cost was $93.96 plus $11.90 shipping for total of $105.86. Lot cheaper than buying a new unit and I have been using the reel for over a year now with no problems. We are full timers, so it gets lots of use.

Backhoej,
I have the same problem as many others. My cord reel stopped working. I hear pcs/parts spinning inside. Suspect its the little gear in side that is toast.
Do you still have the replacement gears? If so, do you have paypal where I could buy one from you?
Looking at trading in my 2006 Monaco Diplomat for a 2013 WInnebago Tour and want the 2006 fixed right before I trade. Don't want to leave that headache to anyone else.
Please let me know.

Regards,
Tigerpa

I too had the gear fail in my 2004 Monaco Diplomat this winter. I was going to wait for warmer weather to make the repair. Didn't realize the parts were so hard to get. If your son is still in the gear business would appreciate being able to buy a couple gears.If still able to supply gears please E-Mail me.

 

Thanks,

Hi all ,

 

BackhoeJ here and still alive & well and had more gears made, so come one come all and save some money. Amazing how many fellow RV'ers need this gear.

 

Thanks to all & also sorry for your needing one. Also I think this gear fits the water hose reel. Sold one.

 

Thank You; John Delmatoff

I'm having the same problem as several of you are having, but mine is the manual type of reel. When I turn the handle to wind up the cord, nothing happens.  the handle turns but the inter workings do not turn the reel.  Has anyone here repaired their manual type power cable reel?  It is similar to this product  http://a248.e.akamai...jpg?1329399158. Thanks Dave
