  1. I understand that it is not a god idea to idle a diesel rather than driving it, but, for the next while, I will be unable to move my Excursion, 350 Cat. Is it less worse to leave it sit or to run the engine once a month or so?
  2. Actually, Carl, parts are readily available through repairclinic.com
  3. Thanks, Rich. I think I will order a new plastic catch. I bet that it has worn down over time.
  4. We have a G.E. Profile Spacemaker in our 2005 Excursion. I works great, but the door pops open when we are travelling. I have secured it with a bungee, but am looking for a slightly more elegant fix. Has anyone had that same issue? How did you fix it? Thank!
  5. Thanks, that's kind of what I figured.
  6. I have received a quote from FMCA for Michelin tires. I am wondering if i would be eligible for any current rebates from Michelin? Would be a great deal if so!
  7. Thanks for the responses. I am in the Sacramento Ca area, and expect I will balance the fronts only - is this what you recommend?
  8. Can someone please give me an idea of how much the installation of six tires will cost me? They are 275/70R 22.5. I have a quote for the tire from FMCA. Thanks!
  9. We are planning to switch our house TV from DirecTV to Dish, and currently have an older DirecTV receiver in our coach. Does anyone know if the Dish receivers (Wally?) will work with a KVH Tracvision L2, installed in 2005? I know we won't get HD. Thanks, JT
  10. I recall that you must press and hold the button on the Xantrex for a few seconds. Also, they may be an inverter on/off switch located with the battery switches and other monitors, probably close to the front door of the coach JT
  11. I had a similar issue, and it was that the inverter had turned off. Are you certain it is actually running?
  12. Thanks, everyone for your input. It did occur to me that if the house batteries were completely dead there might not be enough energy to activate the solenoid. JT
  13. I am now wondering if the emergency switch works in either direction, but I can't think of a way to try it out. Perhaps disconnecting the engine batteries? JT
  14. Thanks, Rich. I am replacing the batteries, and will look at battery connections etc when I do so. Do you think that the emergency starting circuit should work in both directions? JT
  15. Last weekend, my (four 6 v wet cell ) batteries died. I tried to start the generator, but it seems to use the very batteries that are dead. I tried using the switch that connects the chassis batteries to the house batteries to help start the coach motor, but that didn't work. I guess it allows the coach batteries to help the starter, but not the other way around. Do you think that is the way it is supposed to work (it is a 2005 Fleetwood Excursion, Cat 350, Spartan chassis) because it seems illogical. I was able to get the generator started by running the coach engine for a while to charge the batteries I was trying to charge. Ironic. JT
