  1. We clip our cat's nails. Richard

    Our MH sits on a full service RV pad, right next to the garage. No problems with the city. Home sweet home. Most every thing on my property is aged. 1990 F150, 1995 Bounder, 1952 home. 1943 wife!
  3. You bathroom heat is probably like mine. The furnace sits on one side of the coach and the bathroom on the other. My furnace has 4 4" ducts and the 2" bathroom duct is "T" off of one of the 4" ducts. My bathroom duct is over 12' long and has hardly no flow. When in the cold, we use a small electric heater to prewarm the bathroom before showers. Richard
  4. Transfer switches (relays) hum when the armature and the iron core don't make full contact when in the closed position. Has nothing to do with the contacts. As far as reliability, they offer little problem. My 95 Bounder still has the OEM auto transfer switch. Richard
  5. Bounder wet bays have been heated since the first one in 1986. You have been misinformed. Richard
  6. Fleetwood typically only installed the two battery disconnect switches by the door/stairwell. Your best bet is to disconnect the negative battery cables from both battery banks. Some have installed a high amperage disconnect switch on both banks, for convenance. Richard
  7. Assuming you MH has a smart charger, I would leave the batteries in the MH, disconnect switches turned on and plugged in. Check the battery water levels before storage and all should be well. Richard
  8. There should be a relay system to get 24 volts to start and then revert back to 12 volts so the alternator can charge every thing. I suggest that system has failed. Thus 2 charged batteries and 2 dead batteries. Richard
  9. A proper solar installation will have a switch between the panels and the controller. Richard
  10. The basic engine, as built and tuned by International, was OK. But Ford raised the HP and stretched the head bolts. Richard
  11. The starter relay, located in the right fender well, is a known high failure item. Turn on ignition, jump around the two big posts on the relay, and see if the starter engages. An independent Mobil service tech, might just be clever enough to help you along. Richard
  12. If memory serves me correctly, open the slide and cut an opening on the wall behind the slide. Or something like that. Probable a HR or Monaco forum will have a spot on answer. Richard
  13. Has it just quit working? Is the box good? If you were happy with what you had, maybe a new cooling unit will work for you. If you spend much time off grid, then a residential refrigerator will require a larger battery bank, more solar and more wiring. Richard
  14. Please tell us what brand and model of coach you have......Do you know what brand name the AC is? Richard
  15. Where are you located in the K.C. area? Richard
