    Inverter "Backfeed Fault"

    Brian, thanks for getting back to us.

    New to forums.

    I had to google the Shaper Origin to see what it is. That is one neat wood working tool! Wood working and Metal fabrication are two (besides camping) of my favorite hobbies.

    Who, What, When, Where or Just Lets Talk

    Bill, I have always wanted to see a rodeo. This one is probably 1.5 hours from home, we pass it every time we head to the New Jersey beaches;http://www.cowtownrodeo.com/ My late grandfather was a Brahma Bull rider when he was younger, always wanted to watch and see what that must have been like. He limped with a cane until the day he died .

    Firestone FS561

    Tires have come a long way!! I love those BFG tires, so far they have proven to be a good choice. Hopefully Tireman will see this and chime in, he would be the right guy to bounce your questions off of.

    Yeah, I can understand that.

    Firestone FS561

    Well.....my speedometer is 4 mph off from my actual speed. My coach was built with a tire that was a 499 and now is a 486.

    Firestone FS561

    We were supposed to have a 295/80R22.5 (factory size), when we bought it it had new tires what were an incorrect load range, those were a 295/75R22.5. Once I saw the error they replaced the steer tires only (only axle that was actually overloaded). I went with the 12R22.5 because of its availability on the road should I need a replacement tire. The 315 was a consideration back then, what turned me off at the time was the weight of the tire was enough to impact MPG's and I was concerned with my wheel offset the tires might "kiss" while in operation. When we put the 12R's on I also replaced the rear inner duals with aluminum wheels to lighten up the rotational mass.

    New rear view camera

    Sounds like you are headed down the right path. Check with RV cams and find out what our options are. Our last coach I removed the dash mounted CRT monitor and replaced it with an LCD the mounted inside the drivers side sun visor. Probably not a good fit for a class A but just an example of how creative you can get with monitor placement.

    Firestone FS561

    Richard, the FS561 is a good tire. Our coach has the 12R22.5's on it now and I bought these; https://simpletire.com/bfgoodrich-12-r22.5-63223-tires They ride great, no complaints so far and they have 25,000 miles on them and they are just shy of 2 years old. The 12R22.5 should be readily available should you need a replacement, that is a very common over the road truck tire size.

    Best New ATS (Automatic Transfer Switch)

    Think I am going with this one. Mostly for its quality and availability. Anyone currently running this ATS or have any experience with it or the Manufacture? https://www.progressivedyn.com/rv/automatic-transfer-switches/pd52-240-vac-50-amp-automatic-transfer-switch/

    Not likely. Did they drain and replace the boiler fluid? If so that could cause all of your issues above. I would reach out to whom ever performed the service and ask.
  13. jleamont


    Do you know what they actually touched as part of the service? Just a nozzle replacement and electrode adjustment wouldn't cause this. It was either overfilled or there is a valve shut off and as it gets hotter its backing up into the supply/overflow tank.

    Michelin vs Michelin

    This is all Michelin has to offer in your size; I cannot imagine there would be any issue with this tire. There are not many manufactures with this size tire. Michelin, Toyo (TOYO Model M144) were the only two I could locate in a brief search. Continental, BF Goodrich, Firestone and Bridgestone didn't offer this size.

    Roadseyeview, can you verify it’s a Michelin XIZ?

    Staples vs Office Depot

    The issue, My wife loves to explore those stores, something about stationary. She is also big into Scrap booking so this could get expensive, at least ill save a few $$ now

    What is the process at the register to get the FMCA discount or does this only work on-line?

    Best New ATS (Automatic Transfer Switch)

    I am currently shopping for a replacement ATS WITHOUT EMS. We have the the original IOTA that was installed in July 2001. No issues with it but its time for an upgrade. I did get information from one of the forums electrical experts, looking for any real world experience. Anyone have a preferences, past experiences etc? Our coach is a 50 amp with a 7500 Watt Generator. This so far is the runner up due to its reviews on the web seem very positive; https://www.pplmotorhomes.com/parts/electrical-plumbing-lp-gas/rv-electrical-systems-and-accessories/transfer-switches/transfer-switches-110-volt-automatic_ES50M-65N?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI1qHA99iI3wIVUUwNCh1zqAOnEAYYASABEgJ9d_D_BwE I prefer to use the portable EMS on the tower vs one built in. Our coach had a progressive system hardwired that I removed when I realized it wasn't working as it should.

    Things I would like to see from Factory

    I believe they are more centered for a few reasons. Passenger can adjust the radio and radios are often used while parked as well as in route somewhere. If my radio was in the dash wrapped around me when parked it could be a nuisance to access especially with the remote that is kept in the dining area. I believe it needs a line of sight to pick up the signal. Post some photos of your layout.

    Aladdin Screen Will Not Light Up

    Yeah, but good information in that post for someone troubleshooting a similar system. Makes you wonder if the OP figured his out?

    2002 cat 3126 Journey DL will not start

    TTRV, see if there is a place that you can mail yours to and have it repaired. Probably just the injector driver portion that has failed. Fairly common on CAT due to heat, couple that with an RV application and low air circulation around it to keep it cool and failures become more common. It would save you from any programming also.

    Cabin Fever "2019"

    I did that many times with our boat and coach. We don't have them now, the hardest part was lining it up to get to the boat launch. The boat and trailer was 32' (plus the out drive) and the coach was 31' long, if the launch area was tight it became a real pain quickly.
