  1. The ground signal maybe coming from (going thru) a relay. It also maybe a shared circuit relay. I would be looking for the relay that operates the jacks to see if it is defective. Just a thought
  2. wildbill308, a walk thru tech teaches new owners how everything works in the coach they just bought. It doesn't cost them anything where I work. I just finished renewing the battery disconnect solenoid and control switch and it seems like the lights are a little brighter. The solenoid is located in the electrical cabinet, at the left front corner and the control switch (salesmen switch) is located in the control panel at the front door. Everything is fixed.
  3. Thanks Herman I got bored and went back to work at Giant RV as a walk thru tech. We have boxes of obsolete parts that are going back to the manufacture and I found the correct switch in one of many boxes. I will install it tomorrow when I get home from work.
  4. Does anyone have a wiring diagram for this switch or know where i can get one. I'm having an issue with this one. The interior lights will start to flicker and then go out. If I touch, not depress, the switch, everything will start working again. I've called REV and are no help. The coach is 17 years old and I think I just need to replace it. I haven't been able to locate one here in California. I've been told that it is no longer available. If I had a wiring diagram, I could tell if a newer style switch can be used in it's place. Thanks. 2004 Holiday Rambler Endevor 330 ISC Cummins
  5. Bcusick60 welcome to FMCA. I am the Central VP of the western area and i am going to private message you a name and phone number for the northern California area. If you have any questions, he can answer them. I am not aware of any chapter in the western area that require a sponsor to visit a chapter rally.
  6. Most of the time a backfire in the intake manifold/carb. is usually a lean condition or the ignition module and stator are shutting off and back on due to heat transfer thru the distributor. Running out of power while under load (climbing) sounds like you do not have enough fuel flow to the carb., in other words the fuel pump cannot supply enough fuel to the carb to keep the float bowl full. Those two areas should be your primary concerns. If your mechanic can't check that correctly, I would be looking for another shop. Just my opinion. I have been in the automotive, marine, RV and race engine business for over 50 years. You can PM me here and i will talk you thru this issue.
  7. Just a few questions. Did you have the fuel pressure checked. When you say internal fuel pump was replaced, do you mean there is a pump in the tank or are you taking about the accelerator pump in the carb. If the carb was sitting for a long time and not ran the accel. pump will dry out and cause hesitations. if the accel. pump is not suppling enough fuel into the venturies, it will backfire back thru the carb. Does it backfire in the exhaust? If I am not mistaken it has an ignition module and pick up coil (stator) in the distributor that can cause this issue if backfire is in the carb. Did your mechanic check to see how many degrees of slop is in the timing chain? Just a a few things to know before trying to help diagnose your problem. If the fuel pump is in the tank you would probably are talking about the throttle body. It kind of looks like a carb., but has two fuel injectors on top. you can PM me and ill give you my phone number and i can walk you thru what you need to check.
  8. I had to relog in to get everything to work again

    Praying that all goes well, Herman
  10. Because it's a CAT, you would be doing yourself a favor and have an expert/professional do the diagnostics
  11. I have installed a few Diablo's on a few customers rigs. My suggestion is don't waste your money. Your hp and torque gain is minimal at best. If you do decide to try a programmer, DON'T put it on the performance setting unless you have deep pockets. Make sure you install a EGT gauge before you do anything. Just my opinion.
  12. You need to replace the valves with new valves for health issues
  13. I agree with akadeadeye and docj. national needs to listen to the membership and climb out of the snafu box.
