  1. docj, on my 2002 Marquis, the salesman solenoid was located in the battery compartment above the batteries, between two ceramic looking fuses, one for chassis, the other for coach. Hope this helps.
  2. Bill, I am referring to the 12VDC solenoid that the salesman switch controls. By connecting both terminals to one lug on the solenoid you close the circuit, thereby bypassing the solenoid and rendering the salesman switch useless. No more bumping it off/on inadvertently. Using the disconnect switches at the batteries if you have them, will cut power when desired or in storage. If no switches, then as Herman said, disconnect from batteries. Hope this helps.
  3. Another option, bypass the switch and hook the two terminals together on the salesman solenoid. Never a problem again. Hope this helps.
  4. Jim, I would be leery of disconnecting your surge protector. You may have a problem with your shore power and your EMS is dong its job of disconnecting power to prevent damage to coach electronics. Verify that incoming power is correct before plugging into power source, to eliminate problem at power source. Hope this helps.
  5. rpstewart, first thing is to determine 6 or12 volt batteries. A volt meter will help determine what you have. This is important because they hook up different depending on what battery you have. You could also take them to a battery distributor and have them determine what they are. A picture of the batteries before disconnecting helps in reinstalling the cables correctly. Hope this helps.
  6. Back to my original post, weighing each individual corner will give me the exact weight I need, to determine the proper tire inflation. With the coach fully loaded with water, fuel, supplies, and whatever else you may choose to haul down the road, you can get an accurate weight on each corner to come up with the proper PSI. Hope this helps.
  7. Without weighing each individual corner, a 5 psi bump is a good idea. It allows for one side of the axle to be a little bit heavier and still not be under inflated. Hope this helps.
  8. My experience with a high HP coach concerning fuel mileage is the more horses, the more thirsty. My current coach, Cat C-15 600 HP will get anywhere from 4~6 MPG. Speed is the determining factor. My previous coach had a C-12 505 HP, 7~9 MPG. IMHO the C-12 will give you the best bang for the buck. Problem is, Cat quit making over the road motors around 2007, so if you are interested in a coach with a Cat motor it will have to be an older coach. One positive, the older motor homes are pre emission. Not much difference in pulling mountain passes, they all slow down no matter how big a motor. As far as Cummins, I have no personal experience, maybe someone else will chime in. Hope this helps.
  9. I believe it is located under the entry way steps. The same fluid reservoir is also used for the front slide if your coach has one. Any Dextron ATF fluid will work for topping off reservoir. Hope this helps.
  10. Do yourself and everyone else on the road a favor, SLOW DOWN!!
  11. Bought 8 XZE’s that were 3 weeks old for a 2002 Beaver Marquis. Driveability, ride and wear were excellent in 30,000 miles. Sold coach after 3 years so no experience after that. I would buy Michelin again. Whatever you buy, make sure the date code is as new as you can get. For me, I would not buy any tire that is more than 6-9 months old. Hope this helps.
  12. If the fill valve is open, it will keep running in a loop and not shut off. Hope this helps.
  13. As Rich stated above, there should be a tag on it to identify the manufacturer and part number. Here is a catalogue for Whitehouse Products. https://www.whitehouseproductsltd.com/Request-a-Catalogue Hope this helps.
  14. Replaced a fan motor on my 2007 Marquis from this place in the UK. Very reasonably priced and shipped to me in 5 or 6 days. Sauer Danfoss is now Dynamatic if my memory serves me correctly. Here’s there web site. https://www.whitehouseproductsltd.com/?aliaspath=%2fHome Hope this helps.
