  1. Thank you for all of your responses on my question. We left home on June 1 and the dash air has been working great, almost 4,000 miles so far and it is blowing cold so the amount I put into the system must have been acceptable. As we continue our journey I will let you know if anything changes but again thanks for your help and support.
  2. HuffyPuff, there is a label on the front of my system which states it uses R134A, so I did not mix the two
  3. I have a 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee and I do not disconnect the negative battery terminal and have never had a problem. Also the way my Jeep is setup there is nothing on at all in the Jeep when towing. I did have a separate plug install to handle my brake buddy but that is it.
  4. Thank you for all your help, I put R134A in the system as that is the type of refrigerant listed on system. The gauge read 33 when I was finished and I had cold air coming into coach. I have not driven it yet but hope that it is better than it was. Thanks for all of your help
  5. Brett, temperature here in Florida is 88, condenser fan was not running when I first started adding Freon but did come on and was running through the remainder of this process. I believe the low side (blue cap) is where I connected hose and gauge and after adding 16 oz it was reading 33 in the green on the gauge. I do not know the exact temperature coming out of the returns but the engine was idling most of the time, I did increase the rpm for less than a minute and the air coming out was significantly cooler than when I started. Obviously I have no idea how much was in the system when I started which has lead to my question about 33 on the gauge and did I do enough. First time I have tried this with my motorhome, have done it with my wifes car in the past. Thank you
  6. On my 2016 Tuscany Coach with Cummins 450, the dash air has never really been too cold, actually more cool than cold. I just added Freon to the system. I put about 16 oz in, with the capacity being 2.5lbs or 40 oz. Gauge I used to insert Freon has the green area which ranges from 25 to 50. When I finished adding what I did the air coming out of the dash was colder than it has ever been and the gauge was reading about 33, 34 in the green. Did I put enough in or should I add some additional. I saw the warnings about not overcharging the system. Any help would be appreciated
  7. Thank you for all your suggestions, I just completed the form for the TSD Program. It says it will take a couple of weeks to receive it but will check back as I use it. Thanks again
  8. I have heard a lot about the deep discounts on diesel fuel with these discount cards. The TCS card through FMCA seems to be about $.30 per gallon but I have heard that the TSD Card could be much more. Anyone have an opinion or preference on which card or both to have in my wallet. Let me know your thoughts
  9. My Jacks and Slides are both hydraulic so engine running, jacks level coach first and slides are extended. When leaving, engine running slides in Jacks up
  10. On my coach during the winter a couple of years ago water accumulated on the slide top and froze. The weight must have stretched the material because anytime it rains water continues to accumulate there so before I bring my slides in I climb up on the roof with a broom and remove the accumulated water. My slide seals and wipers look to be in good shape it is just too much water coming down if I down remove it first. Does anyone think I can have the slide topped tightened so I don't have to do this anymore, not my favorite thing to do but...

    Odd Tire Wear

    Final Update on this issue: Took close pictures to a Michelin Dealer and he knew the tire wear immediately, called it River Wear which usually happens when the tire is under inflated or over weight. I told him I ran 105 in them based on the Michelin Tire charts and he told me never pay attention to those charts. RV tires should always have between 115 and 120 in them or else you will get unusual wear. He said they would never allow a coach to leave their business with anything less. He also told me if your tire temperature ever reaches 165 degrees the tire is ruined. The integrity of the tire is compromised at that temperature and even if it did not malfunction then it is only a matter of time before it does. The good news is that he told me the tires still had a lot of tread and are safe. I inflated all my tires to 115 and will keep a close eye on them but this is one thing I can stop worrying about. Thanks to everyone who offered help and suggestions with this issue.
  12. I am late to this discussion, I have a Wingard Traveler Antenna which lays down and automatically goes up and finds satellite. It is a Direct TV antenna which I am not happy with and would like to go to DISH when my contract is up. Is there a conversion kit and if so what is the approximate cost and where do I go to get the kit. Also I can usually figure a lot of things out if not too complicated, how hard is it to install the conversion kit. I know I need to get a new receiver for home and RV which obviously I am OK with. Any suggestions would be appreciated Thank you in advance for your help

    Odd Tire Wear

    UPDATE: I finally had my alignment checked and it was off on the front curb side as well as the rear was a little off but not bad. Both axles have been corrected. I asked the alignment mechanic and his boss about the unusual wear on that drivers side front tire. They both told me they had never seen tire wear like that and I should take it to a Michelin dealer fro evaluation. Coach rides much better with everything aligned so I think I will take a couple of good pictures to a Michelin Dealer to get an opinion before I get the coach out again. Bottom line is I think I am looking at buying 2 new tires and hoping with the alignment that it does not happen again. I am upset that my 2016 coach which I bought new has 2014 tires on it although they are week 46 of 14. Once I have the tires evaluated I will give you one last update on this issue. Yes, my coach does have front independent suspension Thanks again for your help and suggestions
  14. UPDATE: there is a Battery Isolator called a Trumbatta and a Bi Directional Isolator called BIRD on my coach. I am on the 3rd Trumbatta as they are overheating which is melting the internal contacts and causing them to fail. This is why my chassis batteries were not charging when plugged in and my Aux start would not work. In addition the BIRD they installed on my coach was for a gas coach not a diesel coach I found a person who lives in my community who has the same coach as I do and told me he had the same issue. He took his coach back to the factory and they installed a different battery Isolator called a BIG BOY as well as different BIRD for Diesel coach. I confirmed with Thor that this part would work in my coach. We had to change the terminal clips as the contacts on the Big Boy were much larger than the original Trumbatta. I have enclosed pictures of the new parts. I installed these on Tuesday and my coach is finally charging the way it was intended. If anyone out there is having the same issue, this is the answer. Thanks for all of your help and suggestions
  15. Bill, thanks for the suggestion, that is my intent, had a neighbor whose rear was 11% out of alignment and once corrected he said it was like he was driving a different coach.
