  3. When I revisited the response site the line had disappeared ?
  4. When I respond to a post my answer has a line through the middle of it Why?
  5. Whatever you do Don't go to Mustang Island across from Port Aransas . It cost me over 3000.00 for the windshield on another motorhome because the sites are so close I clipped it trying to leave > Believe me the RV Parks are bad down there MIchael
  6. In my humble opinion I would look at the squirrel fan itself. Sounds like the bushing on the cage might be worn knocking the motor bearing out
  7. We started out in 1987 going to car shows and sleeping in a tent . Every show we went to it either stormed on us or was so hot and humid we couldn't sleep . the last show for the year was at Cedar Creek in Oct. and a cold front blew in with the temp dropping we woke up with the air mattress floating in water inside the tent My New tentt was leaking at the seems . Needless to say we both got sick and I promised my wife for the next year we would have a travel Trailer to show our 66 Chevelle show car . We purchased our 72 Mobil Scout from a retired couple in Boerne in March 88 and used it until 97 where we went to Texas Motor Speedway for the First Nascar Race where we Played in Rain up to our ankles and saw all the beautiful motor Homes . People parked in front of us made the coment that before next year we would have a Motor Home and of course I said we wouldn't because the Trailer was paid for NOT . We purchased our first Motor Home in Oct 97 a 1989 Rockwood Driftwood W/460 Ford Engine which I dearly enjoyed until the Diesel Bug Bit me . In 2000 we purchased a 94 American Eagle and enjoyed it until I goa sick and couldn't drive it anymore . We joined FMCA in 2001 because I wanted to belong to something that we could fit in and try to enjoy meeting others . We bought a Safari Zanzabar after I got well in 2009 and it turned out to be a real P.O.S.and kept it for 3 years until my wife told me I couldn't spend one more cent on it ,I had spent a whole lot of money trying to fix it up . The next day I traded it for a 2003 Dutch star and joined a FMCA Chapter in which I was elected Third Vice Pres - Wagon Master . This year Herman contacted me inviting me to join Six State Rally Assoc . as Show Coach Captain . Because of certain things that are going on in the chapter I will probably be quitting the chapter and start look at other choices but will stay with Six State , Like Charlie it's all about having Fun michael
  8. I just wanted to wish Everyone who reads this a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Michael and Donna
  9. Carl, We'll be going to Shawnee I'm the show coach Captain or at least I was at Texarkana . Merry Christmas to You
  10. On my Dutch Star there are two areas where the fuses are located . 1 on top of the dash in front of the steering wheel there is a compartment panel just lift it up and the fuses and relays are located 2. The front end area where the generator is located there is a fuse panel on the firewall with a clear panel is clipped Hope this helps Michael
  11. I'll be with the show coaches looking forward to meeting you Michael
  12. As an update I opened the compartment all the way and the box I mentioned turned out to be the ATS with relays . I am hoping that it's the relay but won't find out for sure until I take it to the shop Monday . I learned out the hard way to let the Pro's check out electrical system on the coach when I'm not sure how to check out the problem . Thanks to all who replied Michael
  13. Brett . I have checked the cord which has 121 vts to the system I.m afraid I knocked the ATS out on the shore power side , and everything works ok with the Generator it,s just no power from the ATS on shore power Thank You everyone who replied and gave your suggestions i really appreciate the response's Michael
  14. Brett , I solved the open problem when I changed to the house plug I now have 3 green leds on the circuit protector but no activation for the system when plugged in. I just don't know where to start with the no power to the plugs or refrig . Is the ATS easily damaged when plugged into an open reversed system . It is a 2003 Dutch Star which had no Inverter / charger installed from the factory and if I damaged the ATS about how much would it cost to replace it ?
  15. Jim , I was plugged into the garage power with the ext cord that's where the problem began . I checked the gfci in the bath room and not tripped It also had one in the kitchen also not tripped . I have no power to the plugs to trip anything . .I do have 120 vts going to the system with a new extension cord and plugged into my house . But no power in the coach , what or where is the ATS and could I have possibly knocked it out > I don't have a Inverter / charger on my coach It came with 2 120 vt to 12 vt chargers I can;t go from 12 vt to 120 there fore no house refrigerator .
  16. I am on a 20 amp circuit from the house . I have the portable surge Guard on the 50 amp line . I am not hearing the box energize when I plug in the cable the box as I call it used to make a sound when I plugged in a power source . I call it a box for lack of a proper name and no it is not the converter it's in line before the converter supplying power . All the electrical system inside the coach is dead . Plugs , refrig , ect.. What originally happened was I didn't turn the AC's off before I plugged in and now NO power . I checked the circuit breakers in the coach and none are tripped .by plugging in the house 20 amp I now have power to the coach with an extension cord but still nothing .
  17. It's 30 amp but I have been plugged in to the house system with power to the refrig and charger with no problem until yesterday and today . I did change to the house 120 vt system and do have 3 green led's but there still isn't any power to the house plugs yes the coach is 50 amp
  18. 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
  19. Last Year we went to Creede Colorado for the month of Aug. While it was beautiful I actually got bored staying in one place . The cost for the resort was expensive and it was basically the same site all month long. I do think if and when we go again we will spread the love to other areas and do more traveling Just so it's cooler than Texas .Of course just about anywhere is cooler than Texas .
  20. If I thought for one minuet that he would purchase FMCA I would cancel my Membership Immediately . He ruined camping World and Good Sam Michael
  21. I hate to say it but in the case of a front end collision air bag doesn't seem that they would help on a class A maybe I'm wrong hope so
  22. Are you sure that the pedestal is hot there may be an issue there . Do you have a circuit protector with the led lights to show the voltage at each leg ? My mistake didn't read closely about your reel . Michael
  23. Great Looking Coach and welcome to the forum Hope you enjoy it as much as we do ours Michael
