  1. I have a 43 QBP with the kitchen in the front. I had to unbolt the couch and move it out of the way. I then had to unscrew the frame behind the couch and take it out of the way. Then I unbolted the floor cabinet next to the couch with the 1 bolt holding it in place and remove that. Then everything was right there.
  2. I just repairtd a problem with a blocked drain in my kitchen sink. The flex tube for the drain in the slide got kinked where it connects to the non slide part of the rv. Cut out the kink and installed a barb coupler with clamps and all is fine now.
  3. They really dont use OBD 1 or 2. For a diesel it is J1939. The bluefire dongle plugs right into the J1939 connector.\ And it reads all the codes.
  4. I use a Bluefire for Motorhomes. It plugs into the OBD connector, and you can use an android phone, ipad, iphone and set up gauges and check and clear fault codes.
  5. Add a Toad Charger to the circuit from the rv to the toad. It will keep the battery charged while pulling it down the road.
  6. When I had our Journey the tv plug had 2 wires going into it that was ignition sense. When the ignition was on it turned off tv. Basically sending 12 volts to a circuit in the plug which shut it off. Cut one of the wires and all set. Im not sure if they still do it that way but its worth checking out.
  7. Sounds like you had some unburnt diesel get into the exhaust and ignite in there. Not sure why. Does it start and run now??
  8. Will it start now?? Is your coolant low?? There are three major causes of white smoke from a diesel engine. Raw diesel fuel passing through the exhaust completely unburned, water/coolant entering the combustion chamber, and the temperature in the combustion chamber being too low.
  9. It would help if we knew what RV you had and what year it is. Could be a bad solenoid or it needs a trikl-start for the chassis batteries.
  10. It is a fixed triangle and can't do anything except follow behind the RV. The sides would have to get longer and shorter for it to not follow.
  11. I wonder what is up with that. T Mobile trying to get rid of us???

    Yes it will. You clear it then you will have to turn off ignition and turn it back on to disappear.

    I use BlueFire for motorhomes. Can get the dongle on Amazon and use the iphone or android app. There is also scanguage for diesel rigs with the J1939 connector
  14. I dont believe the heat inside the rv will kerp the fuel from jelling because the fuel tank is not heated. They usually use a “winter blend” in winter climate areas to keep that from happening.
