  1. new to this rv ing thing had no idea that the age of a tire mattered. I am used to the garage taking care of the tires on the buses I drive thanks I am now informed.
  2. Hi all, just wondering if there are regulations for the age of tires while traveling the interstates, the tires on this coach are in great shape tread wise but they are more than 10 years old, I'm planning on replacing the front two as I don't want to take a chance of a blow out on the front. I have heard rumors that on certain interstates you can be fined for having out of date tires, and in fact been made to have unit towed to get the tires replaced. Don't know if it was bull or what, but just throwing it out there if there is any truth to it. Thanks, Steve
  3. thanks they are 6.75 and will check clearance etc.
  4. Does anyone know how wide I can go from a 9R 22.5 tire as I'm having problems find this size. THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!!
  5. Hi Herman, I have checked all fuses at the fuse blocks with a meter all show that they are good, did not see any fuses which actually were labeled brake lights, I checked for power at the brake switch there is non, unless the switch controls ground and the stop light circuit is positive? as when I put a hot wire to each side one at a time, I figured I could at least get the lights to work by bypassing the switch and applying direct power, no go. This one has really got me stumped. Steve
  6. Hi all, I am having a problem with the brake lights on my coach, there is no power at the brake light switch all fuses seem to be ok, tail lights, turn signals, emergency flashers all working. It has been sitting for awhile but they were working when it was parked, I ran a hot wire to one wire at a time to the switch, one side did nothing the other blew the fuse, does anyone have any ideas on how this system works I'm stumped. Thanks, Steve
  7. Thanks Rich that would be great, I have a pretty fast internet so shouldn't be a problem. I figured out the emergency brake system was controlled by a switch on the brake pedal underneath the coach, I cleaned the terminals and managed to get that working, still have no brake lights though, it's coming bit by bit so a manual on the chassis would come in handy. Here is my email address s.chalmers@shaw.ca Thanks, Steve
  8. Yes this system has the power steering driven by a hydraulic pump off the engine, it also supplies the boost for the brake system, that part of it is working it's the emergency part which is not working and that is driven by an electric motor. I'm sure it's a relay or fuse somewhere which has failed or is stuck, just have to find out where the sucker is there are miles of wire in this thing. Steve
  9. This coach is built on an Oshkosh chassis, and it is a hydroboost system, I'm thinking I might jump a hot wire to the boost motor to see if in fact it works then go from there. It's almost like the whole electrical system to the brakes is out as there are no brake lights as well. We don't leave on the trip till 1st week in Sept. so I have time to track it down.
  10. Yup thanks, one thing down, now to track down the backup brake motor so I can put in on the road. I don't think it would be wise to drive it without the backup system working. thanks, Steve
  11. Hi Rich, got the signals working and emergency flashers working was a stuck flasher, things don't like to sit. Thanks for the help, Steve
  12. Hi there, we have a Safari motorhome which we are planning to take across Canada then down and across the US. I've done all 4 wheel discs replacing everything, hoses ,belts the usual things which may go, we haven't driven this rig for about a year and unfortunately the brake backup system is not functioning as well as the brake lights. Has anyone any ideas as to if there is a relay or fuse which controls this circuit? I haven't been able to find any schematics on this coach as Monaco seemed to get rid of all of the Safari info when they took over. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Steve
