  1. Do you have a bypass on the water heater? If you do check to see that the valves are in the proper position. This is easy to overlook after winterizing. Hope this helps.
  2. Here’s a video that may help. While your at it I would replace the bellow also. Hope this helps.
  3. Try this web site. One piece valve stems, work great. https://yourtireshopsupply.com/category/796/dually-valve-kits
  4. Bad bendix gear? Brush’s In starter wired wrong, turning starter backwards?
  5. Look for another valve that is open allowing antifreeze into hot water tank. There are usually two valves, one into tank, the other coming out of the tank. Hope this helps.

    Coach Weights

    Your Tag axle air regulator needs to be checked on a regular basis. The pressure setting on mine changes and needs to be readjusted. Once you get your weight numbers, adjust accordingly. My front and tandem axles are about 85 to 87 percent of max axle load on each axle. The tag will only be about 40 percent of max load axle capacity. These max axle numbers can be found on the placard to the left of the pilot seat on the wall. Hope this helps.
  7. Try White House Products LTD. They are located in Great Britain, go online and register. Once you are approved, then you can order parts. Saur-Danfoss is now Dynamatic. Just ordered a thermal/wax valve and switch valve for my coach, 1/2 the price and 3 or 4 days shipping from Britain. Phone 01475 742500. Hope this helps.
  8. Easy for you to say at $120.00. States are ripping off people on rigs that have had sales tax every time they are sold. I just bought a coach in Arizona, when I got home to license it in Colorado, I had to pay a sales tax to Colorado. How does that work? Every time I turn around, government is in my pocket. NOT RIGHT!!!
  9. JB Weld for the materials you are mating. Scuff up the back side of the bolt and the area you are gluing it to. Hope this helps.
  10. Check the breaker switch for the electric element. It has to be on for electric side to work. Hope this helps.
  11. Hi Nan, I don't think the thermistor is at fault if it works fine on shore power. When boondocking are you level? Being level is a must for proper operation of fridge. Most campground sites are fairly level, witch may explain why it seems to work on shore power. Put a small level on shelf's of fridge in both directions to see where you are at. If you still suspect thermistor problem, unplug thermistor at control board, this puts fridge in maximum cooling mode. If it cools down unplugged, then replace thermistor. Hope this helps.
  12. I have used Marin RV Park https://www.marinrvpark.com/ and SF RV Resort https://rvonthego.com/california/san-francisco-rv-resort/ Both are pricey but fairly secure. Make sure your wallet is full, as the whole area is very expensive. Hope this helps.
  13. Had this problem after I changed a Leece Neville alternator to a Delco Remy. I believe the Leece Neville ignition wire terminal has a diode that prevents power back to ignition switch. After changing to Delco Remy alternator, coach would not shut off as you describe. Power was back feeding from alternator to ignition switch preventing engine shutdown. I installed a diode, in line, on ignition terminal on back of alternator. This fixed problem. In your case, the diode in your alternator may have failed and is allowing power back to switch. To check and see if this is your problem, locate ignition wire by turning on switch, and finding hot wire. When switch is off you should not have any power at end of wire that hooks to ignition terminal. Also by disconnecting this wire from terminal when coach is running, engine should shut down if this is your problem. Hope this helps.
  14. Might try State Auto. When I got my quotes they were the lowest cost of several companies including Safeco. Have had two comp claims and no problems with State Auto. Hope this helps.
  15. Bill, just received 8 new 12R 22.5 Michelin XZE. Were on backorder for several months. Date codes were 2916, only 3 weeks old. Mine were bought in Grand Junction CO. I believe they are back in production now! Hope this helps in your search for new tires! Frank B.
