  1. Echoing what Frank said…. My gaskets were attached to the covers (and looked about like Frank’s), and when I replaced the covers after a storm blew them away in summer 2017 I attached the foam to the AC unit like Frank did. I wasn’t as smart as Frank… I just couldn’t figure out where the gaskets were supposed to go on the cover, but I could clearly see where they had been touching inside the unit, so…. As my older brother would say… “even a blind hog finds an acorn once in a while…”
  2. Well, I have his number, but I was told very emphatically never to give it out under penalty of severe harassment. 🤪

Not a big deal I just have to train someone else more. Those must of been a big problem for everyone that’s for sure. Outside temperatures Ivylog 19 hours ago Interesting that our 04 Dynasty (owned for 14 years) and our 08 Navigator (owned for 3 years) didn’t have those problems although I haven’t had the covers off the 3 ACs on the Navigator as they cool well. Agree the foam seals are critical for good operation. Frank, do you know when your 08 as built? Ours was 10/2007. What’s on your Curbside Slide on Windsor PST tmw188 19 hours ago On our new to us 02 Windsor 40PST it has a raised platform slide on the right side, well currently it has nothing on it. It probably came with a custom designed J Lounge of some type? I’m assuming that J Lounge had ducts running under it and out thru the front, supply and maybe a return? So what do some of you have if not the original sofa? I don’t think just any sofa will work there because you will sit up too high and your feet won’t reach the floor. We plan on putting a fireplace credenza in that slide and put the tv on top but not sure. Let’s see some of your pictures and challenges if you put another sofa on it. We have a love seat recliner on the drivers side slide which is smaller than I like. Rear AC compressor turns on then off quickly Steven P 19 hours ago Ok. It's been a couple of days so time will tell more, but so far so good. The PO had cut a hole in the side of the wardrobe for speakers. Currently my sensor is coming out of that hole, but is behind the art I placed to cover the hole and no more short cycling. It runs as I feel it should. I did have to lower the tstat to 72 to keep it how I like it. I'm gonna leave it here a while and see how it goes. Outside Temps have reached 90 w high humidity, but I haven't been in the coach much in the day (working). Outside temperatures Hypoxia 19 hours ago When I acquired my Signature the house A/C didn't do much. I looked at the service records which had a number of reports of A/C not cooling. They even went so far as to install a new rear Heat Pump, which made no difference. The "Professionals" spent a lot of the previous owners money but no joy. I removed the rear closet ceiling vent and could see daylight. I found the rear cap for the duct main trunk had never been installed by Monaco & the A/C was blowing outdoors. I repaired that as well as taping the leaky joints and installing new foam on the rooftop units. Next was taping the duct leaks where the rooftop units meet the main trunk, lots of airflow blowing out there. I installed ceiling fans in the bedroom and living room and have been satisfied. evaluating_ac_performance.pdf presoak 6Wheels 18 hours ago I used that Chemical Guys product last week on my pull-behind. I have a pressure washer attachment for application of the foam and it comes out with a JET of foam. I add surfactant (Dawn commercial) to sustain adherence for a little longer, about 5 min. to give it time to work. Then I go over with a soft brush and rinse thoroughly. Everything but the streaks from the rubber roof came off nicely. I still had to use elbow grease and a cleaner to remove the marks.

Had to get up and use the toilet. No lights, no refrigerator, no toilet, no Aqua-Hot heater, nothing, nada, zippo! It was bypassed the next day and haven't missed it for one nano-second. If you are only out for a spell, leaving a light on is no big deal especially if they are LED's. If they are not, change them out. If you want to turn the entire house off use the Domestic aka House Battery Disconnect switch in the RRB. Suggestions for New Tires willbo777 18 hours ago After shopping around when I needed new Toyo's for our rig, I got the best price from Barry at Josam's! Outside temperatures Steven P 18 hours ago Just to chime in about poor insulation. I'm currently replacing my radio speakers and stuck my hand in the holes. There's visible insulation, but reaching further there is no insulation above the ceiling ductwork. That's not helping... House Disconnect Switch jacwjames 18 hours ago While I was getting my garage built I had the coach parked off to the side not accessible to electric, I was having to rely on the 325 watt solar to keep the batteries charged. I found that I could turn the disconnect off and I could maintain the batteries without using the house battery disconnect which shuts off power to the whole house. Prior to this I seldom used the house disconnect. I've been working on my coach quite a bit lately and was concerned about my battery mainainer so I've been testing it and the house & chassis batteries. Yesterday, after reading all these posts on the "Salesman" switch I inspected it and when I touched it it was hot, could not hold my hand on it. No idea of how many watts of power it took to create that much heat in the solenoid but imagine it is quite a bit. I'm going to do some amp readings just to get an idea but I am leaning toward just bypassing the solenoid to save energy drain unless there is a more efficient option of keeping one in place. House Disconnect Switch Dr4Film 18 hours ago Jim, the reason for the heat is the solenoid is a continuous duty one so it's always on. That's why it fails. The only way to get around that problem is to install a latching solenoid. However, you would have to run an additional wire from a properly installed momentary switch as the latching solenoid requires a positive & negative wire to activate the solenoid and again to deactivate the solenoid. The latching solenoid only needs power to latch the contacts and unlatch the contacts. It's not pulling power all the time like what's in there now. presoak D.Ellison 18 hours ago thanks for all the input everyone I,ll be checking into some of these. Outside temperatures Frank McElroy 18 hours ago My 08 was built in March 07. I thought my roof AC was ok until I opened the roof AC units. That's when I discovered the sealing foam was installed incorrectly. Once I fixed it, wow, what a huge difference in performance. Captain seats Jonbrooks 18 hours ago Really makes a difference from cracked dried out leather. House Disconnect Switch tmw188 17 hours ago Oh yeah I’m already changing out all the lights to LED’s I did that on the other mh and installed a 100w panel to maintain the batteries which does a great job, next came the refrigerator. So kinda doing the same thing here except for the frig, other than they didn’t complete the install properly. Learning all the new systems. Sofa exchange planodp 17 hours ago I have the same problem. I have the same year and model as powersltc. I want to install J-Lounge and can't find one that will fit in the spot. The floor is not straight across on the slide out. Forum Changes Ray Davis 16 hours ago Good morning Scotty, It looks like some changes have taken place on here. The thing I noticed is the number of likes etc which I guess is the same as reputation are not displayed now. Any thing else changing? BTW, thanks for doing a great job. House Disconnect Switch jacwjames 16 hours ago Well I won't be doing that then, not worth the effort. Forum Changes Scotty Hutto 16 hours ago Ray, et. al., Invision deployed an upgrade yesterday. Most of the changes were “behind the scenes”, but a few affect the user experience. For those interested, a full description of the upgrade is described here: https://invisioncommunity.com/news/company/whats-new-in-460-r1229/ The only exception to these changes (and for reasons I believe we all understand), Monacoers does not allow anonymous posting. Outside temperatures Steven P 16 hours ago How is the sealing foam supposed to look? What did it look like before? This is the first I've heard of this and am intrigued. Thanks, Steven Broken welds and broken rollers Mocephus 15 hours ago Update: Josam has completed the repairs. What a great experience there with Barry and his team! Coach-Net was awesome as well! Now I’m at Lazydays in Wildwood for the slide repair! Problem after changing plastic surge tank to metal Paul A. 15 hours ago Who did you purchase the new tank from? Suggestions for New Tires FishAR 15 hours ago I went there and they wanted 5 grand for 8 toyo m144's, I thought that was kind of high. Like a grand high. I'd love to get tires put on without having to drive it somewhere though, since these tires are dated 2010. I wonder what a tire shop charges per tire for mounting and balancing on a big rv when you buy them somewhere else? Broken welds and broken rollers John Haggard 15 hours ago Great picture's Thanks for sharing 👍😊 Broken welds and broken rollers Dr4Film 15 hours ago Awesome! I have always found it hard NOT to have a great experience there. Although there was one member who had tires worked on at Josam's who unfortunately had a new service technician that didn't know what he was doing. Most likely he is no longer working there or has had some one-on-one training as to how things are done correctly. AFAIK, that situation was certainly an exception and not the norm. I have been a Coach-Net member since May 2010 and have ALWAYS had great experience with all of my service calls especially when traveling to Alaska and back during our three trips up there. Outside temperatures Frank McElroy 15 hours ago There is a foam gasket that was to be attached to the top is the condensing coil to seal it to the top cover so that when the top cover is installed it creates an air seal. That way all the outside air from the fan is pulled through the condensing coil. What Monaco did on my coach was to attach this foam seal gasket to the top cover but because it was misaligned, maybe only half the air was flowing through the coil. So, I removed the gasket from the top cover and attached it directly to the top of the condensing coil such that when the top cover was reinstalled, I got a good air seal. My AC units are Dometic Penguin model 630515.331 Serpentine Belt part# for Cummins 400ISL? RNMCBR 15 hours ago Thanks Frank, It will probably take me a couple days to get to it but I’ll upload them as you described. Riy Problem after changing plastic surge tank to metal jacwjames 15 hours ago When I first bought my coach it had a slight leak developing and I successfully repaired with Gorilla poly glue, which held for +5 years. I then decided to go ahead and replace. In ~2014 I just replaced my with the same style but the new version is a better version of plastic/nylon. Mine still looks like new. One advantage is you can see the coolant level versus just having a sight glass. I bought mine from Guaranty RV who had the best price at the time. Bought the fittings at Lowes and the Ford sensor off Ebay. https://www.guaranty.com The original sensor on mine was a long probe that fit down through the top. The sensor I replaced it with was a FordXC4Z-10D968-AA https://www.ebay.com/itm/363303882231?epid=1311200436&hash=item5496994df7:g:Sd8AAOSwSUBgNthP The origianl sensor was a one wire, and as stated earlier, it sensed ground through the coolant. To test the sensor just disconnect the wires, which should break the ground and the alarm goes off. Take a wire from ground the the sensor wire and it should shut the alarm off. The Ford Sensor is a 2 prong type, the sell a wiring harness but I just used 2 small spad connectors and connected 2 wires and then connected to the original 1 wire. I used silicone to seal the where the wires go into the senor. The change was not hard. Veurinks shows they have both the metal and plastic tanks. https://shop.findmyrvparts.com/searchresults.asp?Search=tank&Submit= Source engineering may sell them but not listed on their website there is a video of at the bottom showing the tank, but there have been reports of poor welding on these tanks. http://sourcerv.com/ Talin use to make them but it won't bring up the link, you can give them a call http://talinman.com/talin-vector-coolant-surge-tank/ Suggestions for New Tires Dr4Film 15 hours ago Mike, have you gotten a quote from Barry at Josam's for Toyo tires, 295/80R-22.5 M144? I purchased my rears there back in 2019 as they were the best price in my area of Florida. I also switched from Dyna Beads to Balance Masters for the rear because the Balance Masters were only a little over $100 more than what it was going to cost me for the Dyan Beads. When the steers are due I will have a set of Balance Masters and Toyo tires installed at Josam's, probably in another 3-4 years. Suggestions for New Tires FishAR 15 hours ago I'm in Illinois now for the summer. 2008 Manaco Dynasty Nevada Rob 15 hours ago Anyone happen to have the ride height measurement for a 2008 Road Master 10 bag chassis? I am not sure if the measurement is from the inside or outside of the air bag plates. 2008 Manaco Dynasty Gary M 15 hours ago I hope some else knows but all the info I have for 2008 don't include the Dynasty. Suggestions for New Tires Ivan K 14 hours ago Years ago, about 2015, I had tires mounted by a truck shop in DFW and was charged $62 per tire with spin balance. That's almost $500 if I did all 8 of them. Figured for that money I can have all the tools needed to do it myself. I use balance masters for life and switch tires myself. I also have runflats in the front that I would not trust just anyone to reinstall so that is it. I bet mounting cost differs from place to place and at that time I bought the tires from them so that may play a role too but it was a baseline for me. 2008 Manaco Dynasty Nevada Rob 14 hours ago What info do you have? Bedroom slide try’s to go out, appears to be jammed on one side on the bottom. Joel & Susanna 14 hours ago Getting ready for a trip and our bedroom slide curb side appears to twist as it try’s to go out. It appears to be stuck on the right side roller? Has anyone else had this issue? Ours is a 2004 Safari Cheetah and this rear slide is on a single gear driven track with appears to be a one foot wide roller on each side near the outer wall. I can rock and tilt the top of the slide outward by putting pressure on the inside top but when I apply power it try’s to go out on the left side but stuck on the right side. Any suggestions appreciated. Bedroom slide try’s to go out, appears to be jammed on one side on the bottom. bobdinsmore 13 hours ago I assume you have the Power Gear system, which I have and have had to repair and adjust a few times. I think one of the two shear pins may have sheared. There's one that goes through the gear and one that goes thru the square bar. You can see which one by seeing which end does not want to move when you energize the motor (that's the sheared one). Hope it's the one thru the bar because the other one is a BIG pain to replace.

Outside temperatures Ivylog 13 hours ago The foam seal is about 1” square with sticky on one side. Like above you’re better off attacking it to the metal flange, not the plastic top. Bedroom slide try’s to go out, appears to be jammed on one side on the bottom. Joel & Susanna 12 hours ago Thanks for the input Bob, but this is a bedroom slide with a single gear track in the middle bottom and appears there are two rollers. When this worked there is little holding the top of the slide in other than its weight. I’m thinking a roller has popped out of its holder, a rather crappy design. Hopefully I am wrong but I see nothing under the lip other than the two rollers and the rear seems to be higher than the front.

Dr4Film 11 hours ago Hopefully Chris Throgmartin will see your post and chime in as to what may be the problem. He is our resident slide person that always has excellent advice. I assume that you did not see any foreign object that may have gotten stuck under or in back of the slide to prevent it from moving? 2008 Manaco Dynasty tmw188 11 hours ago Boy they sure did, I made mention of that in another thread. I’m new to the Monaco. That was something that stood out to me. 2008 Manaco Dynasty Gary M 10 hours ago My manual only talks about ride height adjustment but not the ride height. Of coarse they were going belly up then. But I will read it again. Bedroom slide try’s to go out, appears to be jammed on one side on the bottom. Ray Davis 10 hours ago Joel, There is a thread about the bedroom slide on IRV2. The wood under the bed where the rollers ride can fail and be a real problem.

Let him know you are one of spies and are keeping an eye on him. 🙂 Outside temperatures Frank McElroy 7 hours ago Sometimes pictures are worth a thousand words. Here is a picture of how Monaco at the factory installed the foam seal to the AC top. The other picture shows how I correctly installed the seal to the condenser and associated other areas so that all the fan air now flows through the condenser coils. I'm the original owner and after 10 years I was wondering why there wasn't much debris collecting on those coils. Well, now I know why. What I can say is that it made a huge difference in the AC cooling capacity after I properly installed those foam seals on my 3 rooftop AC units.

Thanks Dave Elsner Reno NV. 2004 Camelot PST 40' Outside temperatures Hypoxia 5 hours ago Air flow is so important. On a stick house A/C if the condenser fan stops, the compressor overheats in about 5 seconds and shuts down, RV A/C units also are that dependent on air flow. What Frank accomplished cannot be emphasized enough. Outside temperatures Steven P 5 hours ago I'm gonna have to go back up and take the covers off and see what I see.

That relay you have photos of above is the Battery Isolator Relay which combines the two separate battery banks, chassis and house, together in case your chassis battery gets too low to start the diesel engine. The White-Rogers Relay just below that one is the Battery Cut-Off Relay which is attached to the useless "salesman switch" at the entry door. Look at my photos that I had posted previously to see the difference between the two and where they are located. House Disconnect Switch tmw188 19 hours ago I wondered about that because of your second photo otherwise you wouldn’t have taken that photo, and the way it’s called out on the diagram it did say disconnect. I was looking for what looked like a solenoid the other really didn’t look like one that I would recognize. This is it here?

Slide topper tension throgmartin 19 hours ago Andy, Those bent tabs is the reason we stock a lot of those end caps. We stock a lot of springs as well. I am always left wondering why other repair centers don't stock these common parts that are known to fail. They are always scrambling to get and end cap or spring when a customer shows up with a problem. We sell to a lot of dealers who would rather buy from us then a wholesaler because we ship faster. Even Camping World has bought from us because we can turn parts around quickly. If someone in the USA who needs specific parts for Carefree assemblies calls Monaco or the Carefree factory they send them to us. Monaco is particularly annoying as they send customers tech questions to us as well. In turn we end up providing free tech support to their customers and it loads down our staff while freeing up their call center. We never turn anyone away and do it for the benefit of Monaco owners but I get a little tired of eating up our company resources by providing factory support for Monaco without getting reimbursed by them. I forgot to mention, once you get the assembly back together, check for end play. See if the roller tube has any play end to end. This has been a common problem with large Carefree slide assemblies. If you find end play bush the left end with a washer. That end play damages the end caps and I have had numerous customers have their flarge slide topper assembly come off their coach while driving down the highway at 60 mph. Most end up on the roof destroying solar panels, sky lights and other items on the roof. We always check end play on all large slides when we get a coach in. Be sure to check yours.

Problem after changing plastic surge tank to metal jacwjames 17 hours ago Do you know what sensor you installed. When I replaced my tank I used the plastic type, similar to the original. I used Ford sensor which is a 2 wire sensor. I just put the two wires together and then attached to the original sensor wire. I believe the system uses a Kysor low coolant alarm modual which actually senses ground through the coolant system. If the coolant level falls in the tank the Kysor module not sense ground it sends coolant alarm. Here's a link to info on it https://www.wanderlodgeownersgroup.com/downloads/KYSOR ALARMS SERVICE AND INSTALLATION.pdf So for the system to work correctly the coolant level has to be above the coolant sensor.

Thanks for the info. Rear AC compressor turns on then off quickly Ray Davis 15 hours ago RV a/c temp control at best is a hit & miss dance. It seems every day is different. I have gotten up at night and set the temp down so low it would not cycle at all. I like to have it cold and pull up the covers anyway. In some humid & warm locations the cycling will lead to getting warm, kicking the cover off only to pull the covers back up later. I end up cycling the covers when the air cond cycles the temp, that's not a recipe for a good nights sleep. Installing too large of an air cond in a home can cause similar problems where the air feels cold but clammy / damp. A/C needs to run long enough to remove the humidity to a comfortable level Rear AC compressor turns on then off quickly jacwjames 15 hours ago Our home AC unit is sized properly. A while back I couldn't figure out why it continued to run while the thermostat was set at 73F and the temp was colder then that. I started checking and my very DW over road the temp setting and initiated humidity control down to 50%, which in TN I doubt it could ever get to. I had a long talk with her on how futile this was. My next step will be to install a lockable guard over the top of it 😝 Rear AC compressor turns on then off quickly Ray Davis 15 hours ago You might want to round up all of the rolling pins too.

Slow moving slide David Pratt 15 hours ago Darren, The Hydraulic motor and Hydraulic Reservoir Tank and Solenoids are one unit and in your coach will be located under the Entry Step. To access the pump and reservoir assembly you have to lift the step cover and remove the cover/storage in the step. There is a fill cap on the reservoir. Check the fluid level with all the slides in. If you are having and issue with only one slide then more than likely one of the solenoids has failed or is failing. There is no pressure regulator in the HWH system, all slide-outs are controlled by the solenoids, there is a high pressure switch that locks the slide out in with hydraulic pressure. The solenoids are easy to change, it is just difficult because of the location of the hydraulic pump assembly. Your HWH Operating Manual has a trouble shooting section and also shows you how to replace the solenoids. If you do not have a Manual you can download one off the Internet or we may have the Manual in our files. Outside temperatures Chuck B 15 hours ago I remember reading in a earlier life that the air conditioners cannot bring down the inside temperatures lower than 12 or so degrees lower than the outside temperatures. Chuck B 2004 Windsor House Disconnect Switch tmw188 14 hours ago PO? Previous Owner Yes! I assume so. That’s what you need to do to bypass the disconnect switch I assume. I don’t know though there is only 1 post. Outside temperatures Nevada Rob 14 hours ago I was under the impression that an A/C unit in good operating condition should be able to exchange heat temps in the 22 -24 degree range. Humidity will play a roll in the overall big picture. Lower RH conditions will be better for an A/C unit. Outside temperatures Tom Wallis 14 hours ago Not true. Modern automotive AC unites can create air temperatures in the 35 to 45 degree range at the duct. What the room temperature becomes depends on the capacity of the unit in volume and the insulation and size of the room. Consider your refrigerator and freezer. They work on the same principles as your AC. presoak JDCrow 14 hours ago I would love to have a pre-soak. The hard part is water quality is heavily regulated (that’s a good thing), so carwashes reclaim their water and recycle it, and with filters reuse. The harsher chemicals are kept contained somewhat. Foam cannons are all the rage for detailers, here’s a link to a product for shampooing mud off and a foam cannon to apply https://www.chemicalguys.com/tough-mudder-off-road-truck-and-atv-heavy-duty-wash-shampoo/tough-mudder-offroad-wash.html Aftermarket engine oil dipstick tube vito.a 14 hours ago I suspect you would be better off repairing your existing tube.

Chuck B 2004 Windsor Rear AC compressor turns on then off quickly Chuck B 14 hours ago Wives have ways around that. Us husbands end up loosing that battle. Chuck B 2004 Windsor Outside temperatures Tom Wallis 13 hours ago Yes, well if you leave the windows and doors in your motorhome open while your AC is on you probably won't even lower the temperature 12 degrees. Outside temperatures Karl Hampton 13 hours ago Our experience has been, two new AC units in a 40’ MH lowers temperatures 20-30* depending on humidity. Keep the AC on 24/7 or from early morning into the day, don’t try to cool from 95* down to 70*. Playing catch up is more difficult than maintaining the temp @ 75* or whatever temp you prefer. If you leave doors and/or windows open while running the AC 🤔🥴🤷‍♂️ Normal ingress & egress excepted. 1998 Signature Outside temperatures Ray Davis 13 hours ago When the grandkids are with us I think the fridge and coach door are both open about 90% of the time. 😬 Maybe they will get a coach before I die and I'll hold their doors open, if they will let me go. 👨‍🦳👨🏻‍🦯 Outside temperatures Nevada Rob 12 hours ago Chuck when I said 22-24 degree exchange temp I meant overall ambient interior air compared to outside. The temp at the air duct vent is a good indicator of how well your A/C units are operating but does not mean you can make the overall air space inside that temp. With that said everything in your coach is working against that cold air. The sun on the roof, heat through the windows and even body heat from people. As Karl stated, try to keep everything inside the coach cool to start with. I have opened my coach up here on hot days with it parked under the cover and the interior temp is 110 to 115 degrees. Everything inside is that temp. The cabinets, walls, floor, even the toilet all radiating heat. It takes a few hours of running all three A/C's to get it down to about 80 degrees. If you are only able to drop about 12 degrees as asked in your original post, then maybe a good A/C guy might be needed. Outside temperatures RustyTools 12 hours ago Nevada Rob is right, it's the difference between the temperature going in the AC return vent (within the coach) and the temperature coming out the ductwork (and back into the coach), not necessarily the air that is outside of the coach. The 'outside air' and humidity does play a part in general by making the overall AC unit work harder, but the rule-of-thumb is to look for a ~20-25 degree change inside. House Disconnect Switch Dr4Film 12 hours ago Todd, someone has already removed the Battery Cut-Off Solenoid and installed a single post connection mounted in the same location to bypass the useless piece of junk. That single post has the two wires connected to it. End of problem. That's why your entry switch does not do anything as it has been disconnected. By the way, yes the purple wire I have taped off is the control wire for the failed solenoid relay. All it basically did was to complete a ground circuit to the solenoid. House Disconnect Switch tmw188 12 hours ago Yes!! That’s why it only has the one post, they just took it a step further. So what is it that it fails regularly? I really would like to have that switch operable because I’m so use to having one? Upgrading the leveling system 96 EVO 12 hours ago Having the extra tag axle tires on the ground makes a big difference in stability on air bags alone.

Dbircky 11 hours ago Last evening, after having all six rear tires replaced, the Valid Air panel is showing a fault, rapid flashing of both power and travel buttons and a single red dot in for the right rear wheels. The dot is the one closest to the driver. If I hold the travel button down, the vehicle display shows all green lights. The MH looked level sitting in their parking lot. Additionally, the parking brake light didn’t immediately go off when that brake was released (stayed on for two or three minutes). After shutting off the engine, I pulled the fuses fir the system and turned off both chassis and house battery circuits. Everything looked fine, all 10 bags inflated, no sound of leaking air with 110 lbs in both tanks. Restarted and headed down the road. Within 2 miles the alarm was going off and the same fault showing. Will be heading back to the shop, but wondering if any experts with this system have an idea what happened. I’m guessing a sensor or something got knocked off, but can’t reconcile in my mind why the fault doesn’t immediately show. Air pressure stayed over 105 psi on the way home. The shop is only 10 miles from the barn, I stopped once on the way home and cut all power again, and the same thing happened. As the entire trip is all 45 mph or less, I can’t say if the active leveling is working as it should going down the road, but I’m guessing not as it will not engage the auto mode when parked. Any ideas?2009 Monaco Camelot 42pdq with Power Gear/Valid Air (factory installed ) air only leveling. The tire dealer has made arraignments with a local heavy truck repair faculty to look at it tomorrow. Does anyone know if OTR trucks have a similar system? I'm guessing not, but I don't have a pit in the barn to get fully underneath to work on the system. Thank you. Fault Code on Panel after having rear tires changed. Hypoxia 10 hours ago There isn't anything I know of that a tire change could affect on the Valid system. There are no sensors near the tires. Here's the Valid manual and the air levelling diagram. You did good in cutting all power to it but did you also isolate the solar panel electric? To reset the leveling system: 1. The coach must be stopped. 2. Press POWER to turn on the leveling controller. 3. Press and hold POWER until an alternating tone is heard. The system will turn itself off after this. Resetting the system is the same as pulling and replacing all three fuses for the keypad, front and rear sensors; fault codes are cleared and the saved configuration values are read from the EEPROM.

It appears the fault code is the in Rear right height sensor or right tag valve, based on the manual.

Richard 02 Windsor PBT ---------------------------------------------------------- RVing Tip of the Day Save money at RV salvage grave yards by Rene Agredano Old RVs have to die somewhere and most of them do it at RV salvage yards around the U.S. Whether you're restoring a classic Scamp trailer or trying to fix your RV air conditioner, these RV grave yards are the best sources for used parts. Before you turn to the manufacturer of your broken RV part be sure to visit these online directories of used RV parts emporiums: http://www.gypsyjournal.net/RV%20Surplus%20and%20salvage%20outlets.html http://www.rverscorner.com/rvsalvage.html http://www.rv.net/obsolete/index.cfm?action=group&;groupid=1 The power of the Internet means you don't even have to physically visit the RV grave yard to acquire your part. Many of these suppliers will fulfill search requests, includinghttp://www.paramountautobody.com/reno-nevada-used-rv-parts.html, a Reno-based business that carries used RV parts from sinks to awnings. To help expedite your search include accurate measurements and photos of the part you need in your email to the company. If you're lucky enough to be located near a used RV parts supplier be sure to take the old part with you. RV parts often look identical until placed side-by-side. You'll want to wear a hat and sunscreen too since RV salvage yards are usually outdoors. Carrying some hand cleaner in your vehicle will also be useful since you'll be digging around dirty old relics. Once you find the RV part you need you might even have the opportunity to haggle with the owner for a better price.

The pieces that hold the top of the dipstick tube need to be adjusted so that there is no stress on the tube and it can’t vibrate. It will break a separate piece that the bottom of the tube fits on to. That piece is inserted from inside the crank case, requiring the removal of the oil pan. I had that done at Cummins 3 times! Fortunately I only paid once. The mess on the back of the coach and the motorcycle and it’s lift was prodigious. Hopefully you don’t have that problem. Sofa exchange vito.a 7 hours ago I've removed and reinstalled both of our couches when updating the carpet. On our coach, the one on the passenger side has the Aqua Hot heat exchanger. First remove the drawers under the couch and then you will see the retaining screws into the floor. I used a 90 degree cordless drill to remove the retaining screws. Once you remove the couch you will see the Aqua Hot heat exchanger. You should be able to relocate it, but you will be limited in how far you can move it because of the Aqua Hot hoses. I guess you could add new longer hoses, but they would need to be covered for aesthetics. Sofa exchange Ernie Ekberg 6 hours ago The heat exchanger can be moved, mounted elsewhere or eliminated- if you don’t need it.

Don't worry about the picture page or other info. Hit submit and I'll handle the rest. Alternatively, If you have all these files in a file shared directory, send me an email with a link and I can handle the upload for you. If all these files are applicable for the 2007 Diplomat, I can also combine them into one pdf file so folks don't have to open and print each page. This would give folks the option to have all the files in one document. I already checked and we don't have a wiring diagram set for a 2007 Diplomat in the download files so the info you provided will be great for helping others.

Rear AC compressor turns on then off quickly Dr4Film 18 hours ago Based on my experience plus after checking my Alibaba crystal ball, both believe that new AC's are in Steven's future! 😇 Rear AC compressor turns on then off quickly Ivylog 18 hours ago Try lowering the temperature a couple degrees when it stay running and see if it keeps running. Mine will and this rules out it being a power/Intelitec issue. Theres nothing wrong with the unit… the Tstat is turning it off. All 3 heat pumps are original on our 04 Dynasty that did the same on the BR unit until I messed with the remote temperature sensor. Having the sensor clear of everything and the clamp further back from the end seemed to help.

This is on a 24 foot slide out. I had the slide open and looked up to find that the topper was very slack. looks like the spring either broke or unloaded some how.

RVing Tip of the Day Save money at RV salvage grave yards by Rene Agredano Old RVs have to die somewhere and most of them do it at RV salvage yards around the U.S. Whether you're restoring a classic Scamp trailer or trying to fix your RV air conditioner, these RV grave yards are the best sources for used parts. Before you turn to the manufacturer of your broken RV part be sure to visit these online directories of used RV parts emporiums: http://www.gypsyjournal.net/RV%20Surplus%20and%20salvage%20outlets.html http://www.rverscorner.com/rvsalvage.html http://www.rv.net/obsolete/index.cfm?action=group&groupid=1 The power of the Internet means you don't even have to physically visit the RV grave yard to acquire your part. Many of these suppliers will fulfill search requests, including http://www.paramountautobody.com/reno-nevada-used-rv-parts.html, a Reno-based business that carries used RV parts from sinks to awnings. To help expedite your search include accurate measurements and photos of the part you need in your email to the company. If you're lucky enough to be located near a used RV parts supplier be sure to take the old part with you. RV parts often look identical until placed side-by-side. You'll want to wear a hat and sunscreen too since RV salvage yards are usually outdoors. Carrying some hand cleaner in your vehicle will also be useful since you'll be digging around dirty old relics. Once you find the RV part you need you might even have the opportunity to haggle with the owner for a better price. It never hurts to ask for a discount as long as you're respectful. Below is another cut&paste from a resource I saved from 2018. http://www.fivestarrvgroup.com http://www.marxrv.com/rvsalvage.htm http://www.glen-l.com/campers/suppliers.html http://www.visoneautomart.com/ Northwest RV Supply http://msrheaters.com/defrost.html Northwest RV Supply www.nwrvsupply.com Veurinks RV (Sue) 616-965-9619 http://colawrvsalvage.com www.bontragers.com http://m.rverscorner.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.rverscorner.com%2Frvsalvage.html#2800 http://www.azrvinc.com/index.asp RV Surplus Singletonsrv.com Sullivan RV Sales and Service Alliance coach, Wildwood FL http://www.factoryrvsurplus.com http://www.rverscorner.com/ Upgrading the leveling system Dr4Film 17 hours ago I called HWH many years ago asking about the cost of adding 4 hydraulic jacks to my HWH Air Leveling System as it was an option to have both but the original owner chose not to include that option. They quoted me a price of $8000. I wasn't THAT thrilled about having jacks and air leveling. The only reason I wanted the jacks was to stabilize the coach during heavy winds as the coach does rock quite a bit when it is windy out while sitting on the air bags. This was when we were spending a lot of time out west where they have the Santa Ana Winds. Now that we are mostly on the East Coast haven't had the need. Problem after changing plastic surge tank to metal Rlwitt 17 hours ago 2008 Monaco Camelot. Replaced the plastic surge tank with a metal tank. About 10 mins after starting the Warning light came on. Continued to idle to get pressure up. No leaks and not running hot. Warning light still on. Any suggestions. TIA Problem after changing plastic surge tank to metal Dr4Film 17 hours ago Make sure your coolant level sensor is wired correctly and working correctly. Upgrading the leveling system willbo777 16 hours ago We have both air leveling and jacks on our coach. I much prefer the air, easy, quick, and it rechecks level every so many hours, ours is set to 2 hours. After many mods with the aux air compressor, changing to Viair and moving it inside a basement compartment you can still hear it but we don't mind nor does it disturb us. If we sit for a long time, very rare for us, I might air level and then just touch down the jacks. The explanation I have always heard about 3 vs 4 jacks is 3 is less likely to twist the chassis, and it seems to make sense to me. The jacks do come in handy sometimes and am very glad our coach happened to have both systems. Rear AC compressor turns on then off quickly Steven P 16 hours ago I'm thinking @Ivylog is onto something. Last night I took my infrared thermometer and pointed it at the front remote sensor and got 72 degrees. Went to rear and got 80 degrees. Started checking Temps around the BR and found it was consistently high there at the sensor. So I opened the cabinet behind the TV and realized I had my Dish Wally sitting right where that sensor exits (that cabinet has a false floor and the wire is under the floor). I moved the Wally to the back of the cabinet and pulled the sensor out some and had a better night. Today I removed the false floor and relocated (temporarily) the sensor to see how things go. So far it's better, but it's early. That makes a lot of sense to me. The temp reading right under the Wally was 85 degrees. I'm going to keep playing with different areas to find a good spot not affected by vents, windows, electronics, etc... I'll keep yall posted. Rear AC compressor turns on then off quickly Dr4Film 16 hours ago If the remote sensor is in a very hot environment (80's F) and the temperature you had selected on the thermostat for that zone is 72 F I would think the compressor would run continuously since the sensor never reaches the set temperature. Is my logic incorrect? Problem after changing plastic surge tank to metal knightmovesrv 16 hours ago obviously check fluid level and then low coolant sensor and connector. We have 07 Knight and installed Talon tank which came with new sensor and had no issues. To test sensor unplug and check light, then jump the wires and check the light. One of those 2 modes should put out the light if the sensor is the cause. Rear AC compressor turns on then off quickly Steven P 16 hours ago I think what is happening is a cycle of events. The hole the sensors wire comes through allows heat to escape right on the sensor thus turning on the AC. AC kicks on, cools air, fan blows heat away from the sensor thus satisfying the sensor and shutting off the AC, then heat is escaping onto the sensor thus repeating itself. When it kept kicking on every 2 to 4 minutes last night while the front ac stayed off, that got me looking more into the sensor. I had the Wally literally over that hole/sensor. When I moved the Wally to the back of the cabinet, that hole stayed a lot lower than 80. However, there are no vents for heat to escape that cabinet. It's not hot in it except right at the Wally. I may add some holes at the top of the door to allow heat out (later). Rear AC compressor turns on then off quickly trailmug 16 hours ago What's the tstat set to? I suppose on the wilder end of the spectrum, the dish box could be injecting RF noise onto the sensor wire. Problem after changing plastic surge tank to metal JDCrow 16 hours ago Is there just 1 light for “low coolant” or another light for “temperature “ I’m more curious as OP just said “warning” light Problem after changing plastic surge tank to metal Rlwitt 15 hours ago I installed a new sensor with the new tank. I will unplug the sensor and check the warning light. Fluids are good. Knightmovesrv suggested jumping the wires. Can you explain that more. Which wires to jump. Thanks for comments New questions about lithium batteries saflyer 15 hours ago That seems to be the simplest thing to do. Alternator Rebuild Chuck B 14 hours ago Always get your alternator rebuilt because some alternators require a DUVAC wire. Check your chassis wiring diagram to see if your alternator has a DUVAC wire. Chuck B 2004 Windsor Cooling system capacity wamcneil 14 hours ago Your manual doesn't have a Chassis Information section in the back? Mine has table of Chassis Liquid Capacities. It's aaaaaalllll the way at the back of the manual. Cheers, Walter Rear AC compressor turns on then off quickly Steven P 14 hours ago Typically I keep it is set to 74 or 73. But after moving it, I had to drop to 72 for more comfort. The morning sun is hitting the wall not far from the sensor and there is a 5 deg difference bw that wall and where the sensor is. Cooling system capacity Rikadoo 14 hours ago You will also find engine capacities in the cummins book that came with the owners manual, however it does not include the amount of coolant for the radiator or the mile of heater hose. i have just replaced my water pump, t stat, and radiator, then i used my vacuator to pull the entire cooling system into a vacume to 25 inches at my system took 10 gallons which put the level smack in the middle of Min/Max as for the the coolant filter i have read that if you use the OAT coolant by fleetguard that you no longer have to use the slow release filters, instead you buy the same spin on filter however it only has a screen, a little homework will net you information around all that. I got the info off the Cummins coolant website. i chose to use the Fleetguard fleetcool EX, Cummins authorized one million mile life of the engine coolant that is capatable with other coolants. I mixed it 50/50 with distilled water, also i found this stuff on Amazon. I purchased 6 gallons so with putting 10 gallons in the engine, left me with 2 i then drained my genny and it took 1 gallon, so now i carry one on board for topping off. when reading the back of the bottle it states i dont need to add a “precharge” which when using other coolants you have to add a precharge liquid. However like Dr.4film states you need to test your coolant and replace with one of 4 different strength type of spin on filters. This info is also in the Cummins manual along with i believe the part numbers. I just had a “BFO” that in fact may be why i had to replace my radiator, cause when i bought my rig the filter looked original🙀which may have lead to the failure... Maybe Slide topper tension Ivylog 13 hours ago 13 turns but unless you loosen a end bolt it’s probably a broken spring. Easy enough to replace the spring and while you are up there, I would remove the fabric (if more than 8 years old) and have all the seams re-sewn as the thread usually gives up at 10 years. The smaller slides (those that only go out 20”) have enough unused fabric that I cut off the old fabric and sew the large plastic rod back in…. good for another 10 years. Slide topper tension 96 EVO 13 hours ago Forgot about this thread. Chris T .... Any progress on the parts to increases pitch on the SOK111 toppers? Genset Fuel Filter Change rpasetto 13 hours ago @scottjo02, Yes. I recall having to tighten the fittings on the 7.5 Onan in my Dynasty. I always thought that working from underneath made tightening those fittings more difficult. The 12.5k and 10k have a door for side access; that makes changing the oil filter an easy task, but on mine, the fuel filter change is a knuckle buster... there's barely enough space to make a 1/6 turn with a flare wrench. A flare crowfoot would make that a little easier. My 12.5 has a steel fuel line going from the fuel pump thru an internal wall. One way would be to get a shorter steel line from the pump thru the wall, then go the rest of the way with a rubber hose. Hoping someone has done this; looks like you need to take the case off. The newer 12.5 has rubber fuel lines both to and from the filter, and they're curved and long enough to actually pull the filter out. Filter mounting looks completely different ... see below. Genset Fuel Filter Change 96 EVO 13 hours ago Guess I got lucky! Mine had plenty of rubber hose on both sides of filter to unbolt, and pull filter out of maintenance door for replacement. Cooling system capacity millionroy 13 hours ago Thanks to all. Page 10-271 in my owners manual has chassis and engine specs and tank capacities, with no mention of coolant capacity. I bought this used and it didn't come with a Cummins book of any sort, just what is in the owner's manual. I was considering the OAT after draining and going through serial flushes with distilled water. Probably check with Fleetguard Test Strips monthly a few times until I get it where it needs to be. I didn't appreciate how maintenance free our 1996 Rexhall Rexair with the Ford 460 was!! I still like the Endeavor, but would recommend anyone buying any DP spend some time educating themselves before committing, unless they are independently wealthy and just hire folks to take care of all that stuff! Cooling system capacity wamcneil 12 hours ago Ha! Welcome to the club. Learning about diesel cooling systems is just the start of our hazing ritual. Just wait till you see the wiring diagrams... Alternator Rebuild wayne.cerven@gmail.com 12 hours ago I spoke with Gail from Norcold recall department, my fridge has had all the current recalls done,last one was last June 15 , 2020, seals and doors are all good, keeps everything nice and cool, I am not in 100 plus degree weather, in Tempe Arizona Nov/Dec this year for the Ironman,will not be that hot so going to wait a bit longer before switching it out. Thanks Wayne 1999 Signature Caesar Slow moving slide Darren A. 12 hours ago This morning getting ready to venture out my driver side front slide would not retract in. The hydraulic pump has good tone and the other three slides worked perfectly fine. Finally while depressing the switch for about 15 seconds the slide retracted in. I also notice a delay extending the slide the other day. Perhaps a hydraulic leak somewhere or something else? Finally Replacing Norcold 1200 RVSSNAKE 11 hours ago I like the price and the idea of not modifying the box. What inverter to you have? We have a 2018 Xantrex Freedom 458 2000w and I believe it is a modified sine wave. would you, or the minds at work on this site, expect there would be any issues running this particular fridge on that inverter? Of course that is assuming that our rigs 120 portion of the Nevercold fridge run off the inverter(not sure about that myself). Do you believe it will fit through the door or would you need to remove a window? Good luck, would like to see pics of the process and final product when you are done. 2001 dynasty rocker switches Ernest Tumbleston 11 hours ago I need rocker switches for my 2001 dynasty. I know they are listed in the forum because ive read it before but my searches dont work for me Thanks. House Disconnect Switch Tom Cherry 11 hours ago Here is the preferred bypass....assuming you do not have ENOUGH slack to move one cable to the other side's stud and bond them together. If you use a longer one, you will run the risk of a small voltage drop. I actually pulled mine out and ran the "house" side straight off the Blue Seas House Cutoff Switch....way less clutter and if I ever had to replace a component or the Blue Seas switch, I would have had to removed the idiotic relay (Solenoid) anyway... NAPA P/N 781144 12" 4 Ga Cable with Eyes - Terminals NAPA - Salesmans Switch Jumper Cable Slow moving slide Rikadoo 10 hours ago So electro hydraulic solinoids can fail in many ways, first i would test to ensure you have a solid power an ground at the solinoid that controls hydraulics to the rams. Especially if this has been getting more an more slugish Slow moving slide Darren A. 10 hours ago I will check the solenoid as you suggest, but if fine what would be the next process of elimination? I failed to state this is for 2004 Holiday Rambler Navigator. House Disconnect Switch tmw188 9 hours ago Ok thanks guys. I’m home today down with back actually been pushing it too much the last week. So it may have been bypassed already and that’s why it doesn’t work? Genset Fuel Filter Change scottjo02 8 hours ago Rick Thaks for the drawings. I see now that the largen generators are different from mine. Scott Suggestions for New Tires Ron Jones 7 hours ago Not trying to open the proverbial "can of worms" here but I need new tires - all of them. I've ran Michelins for the past almost five years and been happy with them but it's time for replacements. I bought the last set through thee FMCA discount program and it worked just fine. Does anyone have a suggestion for a tire company anywhere along the Gulf coast (from Georgia to north Texas) that carries a good inventory. Send me their phone number, I'll call. Thanks. Suggestions for New Tires David White 7 hours ago Ron, I don’t have a specific store, but you might check Southern Tire Mart. They have multiple locations in the southern and coastal states you are traveling. They handle several brands and might be a good option, though I find it hard to use their online tire finder tool. 2001 dynasty rocker switches JDCrow 7 hours ago I picked up some of these to rebuild my side panel with. They come in different gang sizes based on what you have/need.

If it is a new spring then the winds will be 15. In regards to spring tension loss then the culprit can be 2 different things. 1.) Broken spring 2.) Bent spring hold tab on end cap. I am guessing it is the end cap tab but it could be the spring. Look at the right side end cap and inspect the tab. If it is bent downward you will need a new cap. If the spring is broke then you have to be sure you get the right spring. The summit takes a special spring. I have both the end caps and springs in stock if you need either of them. Ben, We worked up a prototype but the cost was prohibitive so we are back to the drawing board. My engineer and I are still working on it. Our problem right now is time. We are so buried it got shoved to the back burner. Slide topper tension astgerma 5 hours ago Thanks for the replies on my dilemma. The problem is the hold down tap on the right end cap. I called around and factory was out of stock. called Alliance RV in Wildwood FL as I have dealt with them in the past. They did not have one but found me one at Amazon. I was surprised that they had it so I ordered it this morning. I will keep you in mind for future items that I may need to order. Thank you all for the information. Suggestions for New Tires cbr046 5 hours ago After lots of shopping I ended up buying a set of Sumitomos for the old Fleetwood through Akins Ford in Winder GA. They're a truck dealership as well. They had the best tires for what I could afford. I wanted Toyos but they were out of my budget. Goodyear and Michelin were way up there, and their reputations were eroding Tire Rack, when considering installation, they weren't such a great deal. Not saying the vendor I used is the best deal. Just sayin you'd be surprised where you can find the deals at. Good luck, - bob Suggestions for New Tires Land Lubber 4 hours ago I have used the FMCA program in the past but the last time I was shopping for tires I checked around & was able to get better pricing at my local Firestone dealer here in central CA. Their total price including mounting & balancing was better than what I saw from several tire dealers in Oregon where they have no sales tax! It just goes to say that we should shop for the best deal. I do think that if we have tire issues we probably would like to have bought from a dealer that we have a past business relationship with. Slow moving slide Rikadoo 4 hours ago Hydrolics are not to difficult, first i would suggest checking the fluid level, you said the pump sounded like it has a good tone, is that before the slide moves or as it is moving. When it starts to move is the slide movement jittery or smooth? On my stabilizers there are quick disconnect plugs for the solinoid pack, when i was installing my FASS fuel system i saw where the connector had green corrosion coming from it so i cleaned it all up an now the whole system is a lot more responsive where as there were times i would have to switch it on an off a couple times before it would respond to commands. After cleaning the terminils i used dielectric on all the terminils Genset Fuel Filter Change Ray Davis 4 hours ago I have a 7.5 kw gen and when I replace the filter I remove the drivers side cover. It takes a few minutes but beats having diesel running down your arm. Removing the side panel makes the whole job easier. Slow moving slide Darren A. 4 hours ago The tone was good before and while the slide finally moved. It moved smoothly. The end of season last year I changed and replaced the hydraulic filter and fluid, inside the rear aluminum tank engine compartment? Is that where the slides draw fluid from or just from the hydraulic pump and tank in generator slide out in front of the Coach? Suggestions for New Tires CRY1942 3 hours ago We are running Toyo, 295/75R/22.5, $2680.00 out the door for six. My neighbor has run Toyo for 18 years with no issues. Put Toyo on my Honda Accord and they ran much quieter than the almost new Firestones that were traded in. House Disconnect Switch tmw188 3 hours ago This my layout looks like the Dr4film posted? Suggestions for New Tires Land Lubber 3 hours ago I chose Toyo’s for not only our Camelot but also chose them for my pickup & the Edge that we tow. Michelin’s are good tires but it’s hard to justify the higher cost knowing that they will age out long before running out of tread. I often bought Toyo tires for our regional trucks for many years when I was working. Slow moving slide Rikadoo 1 hour ago Ok so your pump is running... (hopefully the tank is full of oil) the next thing is the pressure regulator is off its seat, either dirt between the seat an ball or damaged spring. Your going to need to disassemble the regulator an check it for ??? Dirt, damage if its ok i would swap a known good operating solinoid with the one thats not working. I would connect a high pressure gauge to one of the hoses an check the pressures 1st just to ensure you dont have a issue with the slide. Your going to have to connect to a slide that is working to know what your operating pressure is supposed to be. Problem after changing plastic surge tank to metal JDCrow 1 hour ago I assume tie the two wires from the coach together (jumped) to make sure nothing is wrong from the sensor back? That way you can isolate a bad sensor 2001 dynasty rocker switches Dennis H 7 minutes ago Todd, if they are the switches similar to the ones JD posted above, they are Carling switches. That said, the numbers printed ON the switches themselves are MONACO numbers NOT Carling so they won't do you much good. You can Google Marine Carling switches and get lots of reading on them.

I got those because I don't think I can fit 2 group 31s, they are all listed at 12.5" long and my tray is 12x20. For some reason I thought they were AGM, but I cleaned them tonight and saw they're standard flooded. I popped the caps off one of them and the water is about 0.25" below the plastic, but still covering the plates. Should I add some distilled water? I thought everything was working fine again, but we boondocked this weekend and the chassis battery voltage dropped to around 12.3V. I charged them back up with the generator powering a battery charger. After driving the coach 7 hours today, I removed the chassis batteries and am letting them sit disconnected overnight to see if the voltage drops if they are not being charged. If not, I guess I'll have to figure out what's draining them. After being charged all day from the alternator, after I removed them from the coach to clean, them both measured 13.03V. With the coach idling this morning, voltage across the batteries was around 13.6V. I forgot to check voltage with the engine running when I arrived this afternoon. They measured 12.95V just after turning the coach off and 13.02V after the coach was plugged into shore power about 30 minutes. On a side note, there was 14.3V across the chassis battery cables after turning off the battery disconnect and removing the batteries. I've previously checked continuity across the disconnect and it seems to actually disconnect. The engine bay trickle charger (pictured above) should be disconnected by the switch. It was almost dark so the solar panel shouldn't be producing any power, in case the heliotrope is wired directly. new head lights JDCrow 23 hours ago Exactly. Practice prying them open. Bake and peel. Thankfully my Dip has Ford Econoline Housings and the whole van life craze has people wanting good lighting. These are in our future. https://www.vantageoptics.com/shop/Ford-Econoline-Complete-Headlight-Kits-c25728076 PAC Brake jimc99999 22 hours ago I noticed my exhaust brake wasn't working today. After a bit of poking around at a rest area, it started working. The brass knob (circled in pic below) spins freely and wobbles; seems like some kind of air release. Turn it just so and the cylinder works when you press the brake button, otherwise you just get a hiss of air through a valve. Where did you get the air release valve? Is this the part you replaced? Jim Anyone Replaced Cup Holders? mandms59 22 hours ago We bought the following off amazon as our upgrade: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B087F5NLTT/ref=dp_iou_view_product?ie=UTF8&psc=1 They twist lock into place... in the short amount of time we have had them they have been a great improvement to existing cup holders on our 07 Diplomat. Ground location in dash Dr4Film 19 hours ago I thought the ground wire to all of the dash gauges were daisy-chained in series. Am I wrong? I agree with a previous poster, easiest trouble-shooting step is to hook up a separate ground wire to see if it changes anything. Upgrading the leveling system Hypoxia 19 hours ago I haven't heard of anyone adding jacks but I believe HWH supplied the jacks. That's where I would go to get them added, Moscow, Iowa. Originally when I acquired my coach I missed having jacks but came to the realization the air levelling works very well. Monaco coach value trends throgmartin 19 hours ago I get constant sales reports on RV's every month from industry sources and associations our companies belong to. Some news releases are misleading when they say " RV Sales sky rocket " - " Used RV Prices see increase ". The RV market is highly segmented. Big buses ( Prevost, Newells, Foretravels ), Diesel Pushers, gas coaches, 5th wheels, trailers, Class C's and Super C's. ( I wont waste my time dissecting towables and other RV's as it doesn't pertain to this group ). In regards to sales, these different classes of RV's are further categorized according to price points - $ 500 K and up, $ 250 - 500 K, $ 150 - 250 K, $ 90 K - 150 K, $ 40 K - 90 K. All of these price categories obviously all relate to consumers buying power or individual classes in which a large segment of the population can afford. With that said the biggest recent price increases have come with older coaches in the price range of $ 40 - 90 K. The main reason is a larger part of the population can afford them. Once you get over $ 100 K your market of potential buyers shrinks. When you get over $ 250 K it really shrinks and when you get over $ 500 K your market of potential buyers is very small. From all the recent reports I have seen the biggest price increases have come in the $ 40 - 90 K price range. Older coaches that were selling for $ 40 grand 2 years ago are now commanding higher prices. While prices for all RV's has gone up there are smaller increases on coaches with higher price tags. To be honest I am shocked at some of the prices for older coaches. Even my own coach ( 05 ) which was valued at $ 45 two years ago has shot up $ 20 K. This is the best advice I can give to a coach owner who is interested in selling. If you are contemplating getting out of RV'ing, now is the time to sell. If you are looking at simply trading coaches tread lightly. While you may get more money out of your current coach, you will pay more for the next one. I anticipate a correction in prices in 2022-23. Values are going to drop significantly and then find a happy place where they will stabilize. Kind of strange that we all own depreciating assets and we all knew when we bought our coaches that values would sink like a rock over time. Yet here we are and many of us guys with older coaches are seeing appreciating values. I would have never guessed this 2 years ago. 🙂 Monaco coach value trends Ivylog 18 hours ago Chris, thanks for a good breakdown of what’s happening. Supposedly NADA prices are just a percentage adjustment based on age… not based on sales. Currently the prices on 06-08 Monaco Exes, Sigs, and HR Navigators values (only ones I check) are back up to what they were 3 years ago. PAC Brake dl_racing427 18 hours ago Jim, it's been a long time, but I think the quick release valve was where the hose connects to the Pacbrake cylinder. What you're referring to is, I think, the vent for the other side of the cylinder. Upgrading the leveling system KevinH 18 hours ago I have hwh leveling system and never use it . I air level. Chassis battery Replacement Steven P 18 hours ago It did clean up nicely. I repainted it with bedliner spray paint. Rear AC compressor turns on then off quickly Steven P 18 hours ago Just a quick update. Last night I pulled the 2 remote sensors (why are there 2? What do both do?) Further out of the cabinet and noted more short cycling. So, when I went to bed I pushed them further in and noted no short cycling. It's too early to tell if this will be the solution or not, but there's hope. See pic. @Scotty Hutto Rear AC compressor turns on then off quickly Dr4Film 18 hours ago Steven, the one with the white end is the remote sensor. Have no idea what the second one is. Where is this located relative to any of the output grilles on the ceiling? Is it located such that one of the grilles is blowing on it? Ground location in dash Chuck B 18 hours ago On some coaches the dash gauge ground buss is located on the generator side of the firewall. Loosen up all the screws on the ground buss and spray it with WD 40, retighten. Road vibration will cause the wire nuts on the back of the gauges to become loose. Chuck B 2004 Windsor Upgrading the leveling system willbo777 17 hours ago If you air level, then aren't you using the HWH leveling system? Rear AC compressor turns on then off quickly Steven P 17 hours ago Hey Richard, I am attaching a pic. The sensor is under the TV and next to the speaker bar. This was happening way before the speaker was installed. I have no vents blowing on it. Finally Replacing Norcold 1200 pulsarjab 17 hours ago After a trip to a RV salvage for a part, we have decided to replace the Norcold in our 2000 Diplomat. We were ushered through the lot in a golf cart driven by an employee. We saw a long row of burned out motor homes and that was enough for us. Many of the fires were refrigerator. So, we have a Frigidaire waiting to be installed. Over the years the Norcold has had the main control card replaced, fans replaced, electric burners replaced, and thermostat replaced. On a recent trip to Florida, it operated, as usual, with 36 degrees in main area and it made and keep plenty of ice. If anyone is interested in parts I will make them available before throwing unit out. I have followed this discussion for years. When the inverter failed, we replaced with a full sign wave inverter and our house batteries are new. The only time we run the frig on gas is when we are driving and occasional trips to Quartzsite or Oshkosh, so not worried about keeping things cold. Thanks to all who have contributed to this subject. I will try to document frig removal and install. It sits on top of the furnace so not a lot of room, but, this is not the first time it has been out of the hole, one heavy dude. Finally Replacing Norcold 1200 Bobsteid 17 hours ago What model is the replacement very much interested 2002 Signature Location of fuse for Dash mounted 12V Aux power plugs RNMCBR 17 hours ago Larry, I just uploaded them to the forum. Hopefully they have been approved and posted. If not, maybe in a couple more days. Roy Finally Replacing Norcold 1200 Dr4Film 17 hours ago You are a very smart & wise man to have recognized the potential of what could easily happen to your NotSoCold. Trust me once you have the residential installed and in service you will quickly kick yourself for not doing it years ago. I did! Unfortunately I did a lot of the same repairs that you have also done plus I messed with the doors and seals. I had actually made an appointment with JC Refrigeration to have the Amish built RV cooling system installed when a friend & I were talking about what I had planned to do. She said why would you spend that much money and still end up with a NotSoCold body with all the extraneous problems that go along with owing the POS. That's when the light bulb went off! I quickly cancelled the appointment, purchased a Samsung RF-197 and set up an appointment in Louisiana for the install. That was back in 2012. Best upgrade that I have ever decided to do. At a Loss for what to do Chet P 16 hours ago If you want to get a good reading of all the engine and transmission data, invest in a VMSpc interface, and with your laptop watch what is happening in real time. VMSpc "https://www.silverleafelectronics.com/node/5868" Here's a screen shot of my laptop. The VMSpc is on the left and I run the last version of TOPO for navigation on the right. This screen is always on whenever the coach is moving. Location of fuse for Dash mounted 12V Aux power plugs LarryB 16 hours ago Thx for ur kindness. Cooling system capacity millionroy 16 hours ago After 2 1/2 years of owning a 2001 Holiday Rambler Endeavor 40' with the Cummins ISC 8.3 liter 330 HP engine, I just learned about SCA's! Have determined I need to add Fleetwood DCA4 to my system. Having scoured my owner's manual from front to back, I can find nowhere which addresses the coolant capacity. Page 10-249 includes a sentence "Refer to the Coolant Capacity Specifications in this section." I find no such information anywhere. I understand there will be variation depending on the coolant plumbing, heater, etc. HELP! Roy Million 2001 HR Endeavor 2003 Honda Element Upgrading the leveling system KevinH 16 hours ago Sorry for the confusion. I have HWH air leveling and hydraulic leveling jacks. It’s just me and my wife and we just don’t notice any difference between air leveling and the hydraulic jacks. Plus the jacks take quite a bit longer to raise then the air leveling system. Annabelle need s a new muffler Chet P 16 hours ago It's just a st'd truck muffler. Any NAPA parts store can supply you. Chassis battery Replacement vegaman19760 16 hours ago Our 2015 HR Ambassador came with Chassis AGM batteries. Three years ago I changed out flooded type House Batteries over to AGM. Before changing over to AGM or Lithium or any change in battery type, first make sure your charging system and inverter can support your change. Then you can decide on pros and cons. Cons for changing to AGM from Flooded include: Higher Price and Higher Weight The Pros IMHO out weigh the cons. Much easier to maintain - no fluid upkeep, no battery acid to contend with. they hold their charge much longer when dry camping, less use of generator to keep charged, charging system does not work as hard. All battery systems require some maintenance such as checking battery hold downs and terminal tightness from road vibration, checking for terminal corrosion, checking for frayed wires and the like. We have been using AGM batteries in our race cars and show cars for over 15 years simply for protection in the event of an accident, easy to charge and almost no maintenance. Manufacturer and price vary. What is good for me may not be right for you. However, AGM batteries are and have been gaining popularity for years. Good luck. Cooling system capacity Dr4Film 16 hours ago There are test strips available from Cummins which are dated so make sure you get fresh ones. Then there is a calculation based on the test strip as to how much DCA has to be added. Speedco used to measure mine whenever I had service done there but I haven't used them in a few years now that I have found an excellent service company to take care of all of my engine service and repairs. My ISC 350 has a coolant filter which also contains slow release DCA that I replace every year. Your ISC 330 may or may not have one. https://www.cumminsfiltration.com/eme/analysis https://www.cumminsfiltration.com/sites/default/files/pdf_archive/pdfs/product_lit/americas_brochures/LT15626.pdf Finally Replacing Norcold 1200 pulsarjab 15 hours ago We are installing a Frigidaire model FFHT1425VB. It is almost 14 cubic feet. I would have preferred a French door with ice and water in the door, but did not want to go through the hassle of modifying the enclosure for the furnace. It will be cold and plenty of ice. No handles on doors to protrude into narrow hallway and the depth is perfect. Cooling system capacity Robert U 15 hours ago I have a 2000 Dip with a ISC8.3 Engine. 30 quarts of antifreeze files my system. I would recommend replacing all old antifreeze and fill with new which has SCA already mixed in. Bob U new head lights Ray Davis 15 hours ago LOL.... JD, I'm afraid you'll get there eventually, really all to soon. I remember vacations like that. Driving on a Sunday night then going to work Monday. Kids sleeping and Marilyn ( DW ) making sure I stayed awake. Now I'm closer to a 6 hr driver. I can drive longer if necessary but I like 6 hrs much better. I have come to realize it's a lot more fun to arrive early and watch than to be watched, if you know what I mean. I have had them gather in a long row with their lawn chairs to watch me try to back into a near impossible spot. It was fun for them but not so much for me. The guide helping me didn't understand that I needed to be able to see him, later I found it was his first day so I apologize for growling at him. All great memories, now Upgrading the leveling system Nevada Rob 15 hours ago I don I like the air leveling but I am not a fan of the compressor coming on a few times at night. I have been chasing air leaks but I think I would have a better chance at finding Waldo. We camp in the boondocks 95% of the time. With our previous coaches we have used the hydraulic jack to help get us out of soft dirt by lifting the coach and putting rocks or boards under the rear wheels. Although this Dynasty is bigger and heavier than the previous motorhomes. I am not to sure just yet how far out into the weeds I will be will to take this machine. Chassis battery Replacement Nevada Rob 14 hours ago 100% agree. The higher cost is a factor and may not be the right choice for everyone but for my application they are a great option. The attached You Tube is kind of interesting if one wants to spend 25 minutes on a video. You will never get the time back but the presentation is done well IMO. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t9bAjvqym-s Upgrading the leveling system Donflem 14 hours ago I have both on my 07 dynasty p4 but only 3 jacks 1 in the front and 2in the back. Does anyone know why they only put three on this model? Don Finally Replacing Norcold 1200 Dennis H 14 hours ago When selecting a replacement, especially if there's a furnace below, take into consideration the height of the shelves INSIDE the fridge. Ours had a drawer below the Norcold and DW wanted to 'save' it. However, when we decided on the Samsung, keeping the drawer would make the top shelves too high for her to comfortably get things in and out, so I opted to remove the drawer and lower the fridge. Life is easier when the wife is happy.... 😄....Dennis Correct fuel filters for ISL 400 codelld 14 hours ago Some more numbers. I have an ISL that was built in August 2006. Water separator/filter is a Fleetguard FS19596 and is rated at 7 microns. My secondary filter is a Fleetguard FF5488 rated at 5 microns. Finally Replacing Norcold 1200 Paul A. 14 hours ago Many have installed a Fisher Paykel due to the height issue. Finally Replacing Norcold 1200 pulsarjab 12 hours ago On sale, Frigidaire was $600. The biggest issue for most frigs. is depth. It sits in the hallway to the bath and bedroom. Most frigs have handles and easily stick out farther into the hallway. Since we are not full time, we do not need 18 cubic feet, this one will provide great sleep at night and will keep everything cold, automatically will defrost and will fit nicely in the space. I may have room for a pull out spice rack, that would be a bonus. Cooling system capacity Corkman 11 hours ago When the fluid was changed in my 2001 Monaco Dynasty 370 HP 8.9L engine it took 9 gals (36 quarts) New questions about lithium batteries fredelkamp 11 hours ago My solar installer completely disconnected the the Trombetta to isolate the LiFePO4 Batteries from the chassis AGM batteries. The 1440 watts on the roof keeps the house batteries nicely charged, but parasitic draw on the chassis batteries when we are parked will kill them in about two weeks so I put in an AC trickle charger to maintain them. How can restore the emergency "boost" system? New questions about lithium batteries saflyer 11 hours ago An RV tech showed me an item in the front run bay that is connected to the Trombetta. Said if I pull one item out it keeps the alternator from charging the house batteries but the emergency boost function is still available. Unfortunately I don’t remember what is to be pulled and that tech is no longer around. Another thing to consider. I installed a Trik-L-Start to keep my chassis batteries charged while on shore power. That company says it won’t work with lithium batteries but their latest models of Amp-L-Start will. Ultimately I tend to agree with not charging the house batteries from the alternator and just figure there will always be enough solar while I drive to run the few things operating, mainly the refrigerator. New questions about lithium batteries Ivylog 10 hours ago Several years ago I added a manual disconnect switch to the wire that energizes my BigBoy relay to decrease its amp draw when dry camping…switch extends out the bottom of the rear run box. Just ordered a $12 WiFi relay to go in parallel with this switch so I do not have to go outside to put the BigBoy back in the system. Decided on the one below as it appears to have an antenna wire that I can run outside of the metal rear run box for better reception. New questions about lithium batteries saflyer 10 hours ago I’ve never read this before. Where is this information from? Not that I don’t think you have it right but I’d like to learn more. PAC Brake Mel S - '96 Safari 10 hours ago https://www.mrostop.com/sqe2-humphrey-1-4-super-quick-exhaust-valve Location of fuse for Dash mounted 12V Aux power plugs vito.a 10 hours ago RV Salvage Yards Nevada Rob 10 hours ago Anyone have a name or place that has an RV salvage yard other than Visone? I have already tried them. I am looking for the passenger side fuel bay door on a 2008 Monaco Dynasty. New questions about lithium batteries Ivylog 9 hours ago I’ve read much the same for voltages plus for extended storage, 6 months, you want them at 60% or even 50% SOC to keep the positive post from being damaged. House Disconnect Switch tmw188 8 hours ago Trying to find the solenoid location for the House Disconnect switch? I haven’t gone to the coach yet to look but I’m thinking it’s in the right rear access door area? The switch itself inside the door is good but it is not turning the 12v house power off. It’s not the same as the Battery Isolator in this pic is it? House Disconnect Switch Dr4Film 8 hours ago Nope, it is the solenoid directly below that one and it's labeled Battery Cut-Off Relay. Frankly I would strongly suggest that you bypass the damn thing as they are a high failure item. SO if you replace it chances are that one will fail also some day. Many people including myself have bypassed the relay and we no longer have to worry about losing 12 VDC power to many of the house devices at the worst possible inconvenient time. House Disconnect Switch vito.a 8 hours ago It's in the front electrical run bay outside just below the drivers feet. Finally Replacing Norcold 1200 tmw188 8 hours ago I replaced mine on my last MH a National Dolphin. I actually removed the furnace relocated it in location of the bottom drawer in the kitchen. Yes I had to cut a hole in the side of the motorhome! It finished out nice and was the best upgrade I’ve done. Dr4film might remember me from irv2 forum. I tell people today the same thing he told me get rid of that POS! 😁 Location of fuse for Dash mounted 12V Aux power plugs mandms59 8 hours ago All, Found correct fuse this morning. It was in FRB C409 F58 - SERV LT/AUX 12V PWR. replaced and verified operations. R/ Mark House Disconnect Switch tmw188 8 hours ago Perfect thanks that’s the other place I was going to look. I hear nothing when I turn it on or off. In my other coach it was a distinct clunk. House Disconnect Switch Mark B 7 hours ago I have the same coach and have also replaced that relay. If it fails again I will do as DrFilm has done and just bypass it. House Disconnect Switch tmw188 7 hours ago Nice. Have you by chance replaced any of your switches? I just ordered 6 new of the red indicator lights most of which for the wtr pump. But the switches are small and will take awhile to get use to there locations. Bezels are old and brittle too. House Disconnect Switch Dr4Film 7 hours ago Vito, His coach is a 2002 Windsor and they put all of what is in the photo inside the RRB on the passenger side. Todd, I replaced a lot of the small 12 VDC switches with Carling Technology small 12 VDC switches which are better built and smoother to operate than what came on the coach from the factory. I also replaced all of the RED indicator lamps which are incandescent with RED LED ones I had purchased from the RV Repair shop in Wildwood Florida which Lazy Days now owns. I mainly bought those for all of the water pump indicators as those are on ALL the time 24/7 as we always leave the water pump on even though we are hooked to shore water because sometimes the shore water pressure will drop which then the onboard pump will kick on to supplement the pressure. New questions about lithium batteries waterskier_1 7 hours ago Check out any of the DIY lithium battery design sites. I think BattleBorn batteries states it under charging specs. Alternator Rebuild wayne.cerven@gmail.com 7 hours ago Has been 5 weeks and the my original Alternator returned rebuilt, installed today, tach is working and Alternator is charging! Just to echo what has been said many times on this forum and for my 99 Signature it was the right thing to do. Rebuild was $ 750.00 cnd. Dixie Electric Ltd. Concord, Ontario, Canada , dixieelectric.com for those who may need assistance when traveling in Canada. would have been a quicker turn around but parts take longer than usual these days. Wayne 1999 Signature Caesar Finally Replacing Norcold 1200 Dr4Film 7 hours ago 😇 I do remember that and I have told so many people the same thing ever since then that I have lost count. I was kicked off of iRV2.com many years ago for being too outspoken at times. Haven't gone back with a new moniker as they would most likely figure out who I was eventually and kick me off again. Frankly haven't missed being there and spend my time here on Monacoers helping to share what I have learned over the years of Full-Time RVing and now the past 5 years of Part-time RVing. New questions about lithium batteries waterskier_1 7 hours ago It depends on what he did to disconnect it. Does your alternator still charge your house batteries? That is typically accomplished through the same relay. Alternator Rebuild John Haggard 7 hours ago Wow, I m glad you got your going , But time waiting and cost ? Ouch. I have had two rebuilt for my 99 500 ISM In downtown Columbus Ohio off 315 and 670 . I took them in and in 1 hour they completely rebuilt mine. While I waited. Each was $300. The first I took in was the original 10 years old with 88,000 miles on it. I'm at 126,000 miles now. They had newley rebuilt on the shelf for $450. They said fire trucks, busses, big rig tractors use the Same lessNevel Alternator. ( Hite parts exchange, Inc ) Agricultural and construction, transportation equipment.

Alternator Rebuild wayne.cerven@gmail.com 7 hours ago Yes little pricey , would be approx $ 600 usd Finally Replacing Norcold 1200 tmw188 7 hours ago I know I remember that happening but didn’t want to mention that here🥴when I was looking at Windsor’s I was surprised how many still had those in them. I wanted the floor plan that would allow the removal and replacement of the POS 1200. The rig I purchase already had it done but they didn't finish the job correctly. Didn’t insulate and block off the wall vent access panel or the roof vent and didn’t plug it into the inverter. Glad I’ve been thru this and knew what to look for. Alternator Rebuild John Haggard 7 hours ago You do live in a beautiful part of the world Wayne House Disconnect Switch John Haggard 7 hours ago Mine is in the rear engine compartment Electric panel passenger side.

I like them especially on this knew coach, the wife will inevitably leave something on! Why do they fail so often? House Disconnect Switch John Haggard 6 hours ago Any jump wire will work Turn your switch on at front door Turn your radio up maybe half way Leave your coach door open Go to engine compartment and jump the domestic solenoid, your radio should blare away.. Or try another back next to it. Replacement is your choise. It's your preference. NAPA has them in stock.

If it failed before House Disconnect Switch Dr4Film 6 hours ago John, wrong coach. He has a 2002 Windsor. House Disconnect Switch tmw188 6 hours ago I don’t know if it failed before because I’ve only owned about two weeks now. I’m going thru some things that aren’t working. I do have a manual with the schematic that’s where I took the pic in the first post. New questions about lithium batteries fredelkamp 6 hours ago Nope, the house batteries are quickly charged by the 1440 watts of solar panels on the roof, I even have turned off the Magnum charger and the Victron Orion DC-DC Charger connected to the alternator. He removed the two battery bank jumper cables going to the Trombetta. You can see the jumper cables in the bottom of the first picture I posted. I assume I'll need to reinstall the jumpers and remove the purple "relay" wire from the Bird in the front run distribution box below the driver seat in the outside compartment. House Disconnect Switch John Haggard 6 hours ago Now ( 2 ) seperat issues going ? confused 😕 😀😃😄😁😉 House Disconnect Switch fredelkamp 5 hours ago I have a manual but no Electric schematic and none in the download section, I have asked REV but no response yet. I can only wish it would fail because I would never fix it. That button has been pressed dozens of time accidentally. Rear AC compressor turns on then off quickly Bob Wightman 5 hours ago Mine is under the TV too, and I recently replaced the thermostat covers as they had degraded. I'll try messing with those wires to see if they do anything...but on mine (as i have said before) I only get the short cycling when the TV is turned on... House Disconnect Switch Wrayj1 5 hours ago On my '07 Holiday Rambler Endeavor it's in the outside compartment under the driver's side window. Mine went out in February, I ordered from Amazon and replaced it, but also bought a 12-14 inch battery cable to bypass it while waiting for delivery of new solenoid. I agree with others, if it fails again permanently bypass it. New questions about lithium batteries waterskier_1 4 hours ago I don't know your physical layout, but toss wires don't look long enough to reach the chassis batteries, so I'm assuming that there is an intermediary connection point. Generally, the purple wire come from the BOOST switch or the Isolator Relay Delay (IRD) - the other was usually a red wire - both went to the same terminal on the relay coil. The other terminal (no wire attached seen in the pictures) went to ground. Removing the wire from the front run bay would not allow the BOOST switch to operate. I believe you would need to leave the wire to the boost switch, remove the white from the IRD and connect ground to the other coil terminal. And the positive terminals need to be reconnected to the relay large terminals. It might be easier (assuming you'd use this function rarely) to just jumper the two positive batteries together. House Disconnect Switch Chuck B 4 hours ago Just put all the red cables on one side of the battery cut off relay. Disconnect the small wires and tape them individually and store them.

Will text the pic's tomorrow, Wed.. Since I have the old Sony 6 pin I am planning on just splicing onto that cable since I can find no access to install a new cable. Woody Rear AC compressor turns on then off quickly Steven P 3 hours ago Well, maybe I spoke too soon. While it was better this am before work, now that I've been back it has run 2 cycles that lasted about 3 sec each and several cycles that lasted approx 2 min and keeps cutting on after only 2 to 4 minutes of rest in between.

I think the headlight switch turns that on, when you twist it and the entry door remote turns it on for a few seconds when unlocking the door. It seems without verifying that it’s wired switching the neg at this light at least with one of the inputs maybe from the door. It was working fine. I did work on the passenger side map light for a bulb socket issue I had. It’s much simpler and straight fwd. I’ll post pic today. Slideout stuck partially in. Can't move. Dr4Film 17 hours ago Gary, I also prefer the operation of the two Power Gear slide motors used up front as they stall when reaching maximum travel with each direction. The bedroom slide is the only one that "bumps" when the slide decides to pause during travel or at each end going out or in. Hopefully mine will continue to operate correctly however thanks to you I have some direction in replacing if needed. Chassis battery Replacement Dr4Film 17 hours ago Joel, I view the switch to AGM for the chassis as a positive as they are maintenance-free. However, you must make sure that the battery(s) you decide on have equal or higher cranking amps compared to your flooded battery(s) to spin the engine on startup. The only downside I see is that they will empty your wallet a little quicker. My motorcycle uses AGM batteries. Dometic electronic/automatic toilet powersltc 16 hours ago Ron P., 2004 Monaco Executive I have a Dometic toilet and it flushes find however the water does not stay in the toilet bowl very long. It eventually drain dry. Anyone have any experience changing the seal on the flush ball? Dometic electronic/automatic toilet Dave Hinds 16 hours ago My exact same toilet did the same thing. I flipped the switch under the cover to hold the flapper open then I used a Qtip to clean where the flapper sealed. Then I used some silicone grease to lube the slot where the flapper sealed and a little on the flapper too. Has worked for years now. There was a piece of toilet paper stuck in the slot and water drained out. Now it will hold water for months.... Safe travels Dave Dometic electronic/automatic toilet RVhorod 16 hours ago Yes, I replaced all of the parts listed for my model a couple of years ago. Not difficult at all. Pulled the toilet , cleaned and rebuilt in a couple of hours. It does not leak my the seal now. SeaLand Magnum Opus Toilet - Wanted vanwill52 14 hours ago Among close friends, Paul is known as "Pooper Paul" or "Sh*tter Whittle." 😄 Kit to replace Intec mirror mounted side cameras woodylmiller 14 hours ago My camera housing was installed before the cap was installed or it was installed prior to the interior being finished. There are no fasteners on the outside of any type. Your set up is similar to mine except my camera was held in place with plumbers metal tape, the kind with the holes in it. ???? There were two "T" type bolts that were used to keep it in place using two small holes in the fiberglass cap. Today I will try and see if I can get to this area going through the back of the closet. I haven't quite figured out how to get pictures off my iphone onto my PC. Is there a small rear view camera that you would recommend? I really like those side view cameras/housings installed on Scotty's rig. My old Sony camera is model (?)CB-RV2MH, there is a letter I believe before the "CB" but it is hard to read. If that helps about the size of the housing, but the camera/air port look almost exactly like yours, it's just not flush mounted. I just need a camera I can put in that housing. One last thing, so how did I get the housing off if no access to fasteners? The T bolts appeared to have been glued on with some sort of adhesive that failed. Silicone was holding the housing in place. In your opinion does it make a difference in camera quality between CMOS or CCD technology? Thanks, Woody Miller 09 Dynasty Regal IV Dometic electronic/automatic toilet Chuck B 14 hours ago Dometic sells a tool to clean around the rubber seal every so often. Toilets need preventative maintance also. Chuck B 2004 Windsor Steering pull Tom Cherry 13 hours ago My logic....need to get BACK to basics. Drive the MH as it left the factory. Water is optional...and supposedly when you pick up a MH, it USED to be that you have a full fuel tank. If it wanders or pulls, then you have an issue that needs to be looked at by a professional. If you have a MINOR pulling or bias to one side, then swap the front tires....that is what Barry of Josams's recommends and it WORKS. THEN...start to load it up and get it weighed and also adjust the pressure on the Tag for even weight distribution. I don't have enough info to diagnose the problem. We have eliminated the first variable that occupied a lot of bandwidth....Steering stabilizer. Unless the OP takes it to a shop or has it towed, we have no info... BUT, if it has no or minor issues when he gets it back to how it left the factory....then odds are....it was a weight distribution or TP or Tax Axle or some combo thereof. He DID, and it got lost in all the racket, state that the pull switched after he loaded it from when he drove it home. I assumed that he did not get a ton of gear from the previous owner... As I said, I can not understand how a hydraulic issue would cause the pull to reverse sides....and the fact that cooling appears OK makes me thing this is a dead end rabbit hole. Intellitec Support - CPU and Keypad backups and restores Tom Cherry 13 hours ago WOW....keep at it. This is great.... Map Light Drivers Side 02 Windsor tmw188 13 hours ago RESOLVED THE ABOVE POST Chassis battery Replacement Tom Wallis 13 hours ago I'm a retired mechanic, a long time RVer and I have extensive experience with batteries. I'm not a fan of AGM batteries for RV applications. They work well in closed environments where fumes are a problem, in multiple positions and the are maintenance free. However they are expensive and usually don't provide as much cranking power as flooded batteries. You can also get a flooded chassis battery that is maintenance free. I recommend a good flooded lead acid battery, keep it fully charged as much as possible and try never to discharge it more than half way and you should get years of service from it. My chassis battery is 5 years old and still going strong. I have four 6 volt golf cart batteries for my coach, I dry camp some and I live in Nevada where they get both heat and cold and after 4 years they are still doing great. Correct fuel filters for ISL 400 96 EVO 12 hours ago My 08' model (2007 built 400 ISL) uses a 10 micron primary filter (WS), and a 5 micron secondary filter. Dometic electronic/automatic toilet Bobsteid 12 hours ago Yes all the things above work, I have done them all With the flapper open clean very well usually fixes it To replace the seal you can get the seal kit from a Demetic place (I used me sanitation supply) for about $85 Make sure you tell them how old (mine is 2002) Unscrew four hold down screws lift toilet bowl out of way unscrew ring and old seal comes out new seal put in and screw ring back on Put new foam ring on and reinstall toilet Will last for years Dometic electronic/automatic toilet powersltc 12 hours ago Mine just drain out of the bowl. I have to flush before use to fill the bowl and again after use. The bottom seal is okay. Not leaking. Chassis battery Replacement cbr046 11 hours ago Project Farms. I love this guy! His name is Todd and he's like the Consumer Reports guy for guy-stuff. Here's a video he did on car batteries (4 flooded vs 2 AGM). Not only is he thorough without the use of a million dollar lab but also very informational. And like CR he's not on the take. Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7rTcBanpMk Keep in mind there's 3 battery manufacturers selling under the many brands we all know. That doesn't mean all those brands are designed the same but quality control and base materials might be better at one plant than another. - bob Correct fuel filters for ISL 400 Florainer 10 hours ago 96 Evo - May I ask where you found the specs that say you should use a 10 micron primary and a 5 micron secondary fuel filter on your rig? It's just surprising to me that Monaco and Cummins would make such changes, considering it's the same engine as mine. You might also try running this by the parts department at Lazydays in Wildwood (The Villages), Florida, as their experience and knowledge of Monacos is most likely one of the best in the country. Anyone Replaced Cup Holders? johnfr 10 hours ago Our '07 Cayman has cup holders for both driver and co-pilot. We love to use our Yeti cups to keep the coffee warm but the cup holders are too small for the yeti 16 ounce cups to fit into safely. The wider diameter simply isn't deep enough to provide stable support for the cups. Curious if anyone has found a replacement for these that would work better? Anyone Replaced Cup Holders?

No need for AGM chassis batteries. Correct fuel filters for ISL 400 cbr046 10 hours ago Interesting. On the 2002 ISC engine the owners manual recommends 20 um primary (Fleetguard FS1242) and 10 um secondary (Fleetguard FS1022). Maybe the newer engines use smaller nozzle holes for better spray / economy? - bob Anyone Replaced Cup Holders?

Hypoxia 10 hours ago I just used ABS plumbing reducers. I think 3' TO 2" DVW adapters. Tough & cheap. Anyone Replaced Cup Holders? cbr046 10 hours ago I bought these a month ago. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08NFTFQ8M/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 The drivers side simply drops in (with a gap for coffee cup handle. The passenger side is a little more complicated. I though about cutting the Monaco holders and these and basically marrying the two into one, but I rarely have a passenger and I can live with an open hole for the coffee cup handle on drivers side. They (ok, the one) work really well and now my 20 oz bottle no longer tips. Just wish it was further forward, like where the transmission selector is. - bob Anyone Replaced Cup Holders? powersltc 9 hours ago My 2004 Monaco Executive, I replaced with stainless steel marine cup holders. Kit to replace Intec mirror mounted side cameras pwhittle 9 hours ago Hi Woody, Hard to say without a picture. You can text them to me at 678-772-3847. Paul Correct fuel filters for ISL 400 Dr4Film 9 hours ago Bob, my ISC 350 came with a 30 micron Racor S3210P primary and the same 10 micron secondary FS1022 as yours. Snowflakes for sure unless someone replaced the Racor with the Fleetguard FS1242. Alternator Question Mike in Va 8 hours ago I've noticed when the ignition key is on and the engine NOT running the aternator light on the dash isn't working. I checked the wire and it has a one way diode in line between the dash light to the alternator and it has continuity as well. I can remove the wire off of the alternator and ground it and the light on the dask comes on. Other then that the alternator is charging as it should. I decided to replace the alternator because I wasn't sure of its age and trying to avoid other problems. After installing the new alternator I still have the same problem. The alternator is wired correctly so my question is, is the dash light suppose to come on with the key on and the engine not running or only if the engine is running with a FAILED alternator? Thanks Intellitec Support - CPU and Keypad backups and restores Hypoxia 8 hours ago To follow up on a previous comment I made. I replaced all of the 4 button switch pad faces with 6 button faces. The 4 button switch pads have 6 switches and can be used either way by simply replacing the plastic face. I had M&M program additional functions on each switch pad. When Paul is up to speed on his new venture I hope to add more features. Intellitec Support - CPU and Keypad backups and restores pwhittle 8 hours ago Hi Jim, It was great that you were able to get some of those keypad plastics. They are specific to Monaco and not available from Intellitec any longer. You will be able to change the functions assigned to each button and add new functions to previously unused buttons. Paul Correct fuel filters for ISL 400 cbr046 8 hours ago My primary came with a Donaldson with the clear bowl. I like the fact I can see the fuel (and all the junk) in the filter. The Donaldson seems to be a reputable filter. Just going by what the manual says (HR Owners Manual). Two owners and who knows how many changes ago. - bob At a Loss for what to do vito.a 7 hours ago Wow, you have one of the last Signature coaches Monaco produced. How cool! A little history. In 2005 Monaco introduced the Intellitec coach (house) multiplex system. This system uses multiplex modules located in the back closet to operate most of the house electrical. Then in late 2008 and 2009, they introduced the Kongsberg chassis multiplex system. This system multiplexes most of the chassis electrical systems. Other 2009 coach owners have had issues and found the Kongsberg system tough to troubleshoot. There are only a few places that can work on your chassis multiplex. M & M RV Electronics, Jason. Direct phone number is: 419 965-3014 and the main number is 419 965-2662. Also the guys at Premium Coach Group in Gilbert AZ may be able to work on it as well as some of the original Monaco Techs in OR. Just a start, but when you disconnect any of the wire connectors, look for bad pins and clean both sides with DeOxit before reconnecting. Also look for any bad grounds. https://www.irv2.com/forums/f115/cadet-software-for-monaco-multiplex-chassis-432603.html Best of luck! 2008 Monaco Knight chassis knightmovesrv 7 hours ago 07 Knight 40 Roadmaster RR8R chassis for sure 2008 Monaco Knight chassis Gary M 7 hours ago U r correct.

Correct fuel filters for ISL 400 96 EVO 6 hours ago Got these spec's from the owners manual. I use the same pair of filters as Hardy 1000 mentioned in the 3rd post of this thread. Fan Clutch disengaged vito.a 6 hours ago I don't believe your coach has a fan clutch. It should have dual hydraulic driven fans. The Sauer Danfoss electronic fan controller for the hydraulic fans is prone to failure. You'll know when it's failed because the fans will roar and kick up dust. Repairing the electronic controller is expensive and they typically fail again. Many of us installed a wax valve mechanical controller. The coaches equipped with Detroit 60 engines came from the factory with a wax valve controller. Lots of good reading here: https://www.irv2.com/forums/f115/fan-stuck-wide-open-376611.html Pictures of the electronic controller post #126: https://www.irv2.com/forums/f115/fan-stuck-wide-open-376611-9.html Post #140 has repair options: https://www.irv2.com/forums/f115/fan-stuck-wide-open-376611-10.html My ISX install post #142: https://www.irv2.com/forums/f115/fan-stuck-wide-open-376611-11.html Chassis battery Replacement allphase8 6 hours ago Probably not AGM Fan Clutch disengaged Romeo84 5 hours ago I have a 2000 signature cummings m11, I thought older ones like mine had both that wax controller was primary and electric controller was the fail safe.

Rear AC compressor turns on then off quickly Steven P 4 hours ago I've wondered about the wire for the remote sensor, but mine is not in a slide, so no movement there. I removed the plastic cover this am before work and pulled and spread the 2 wires apart to see if that makes a difference. I've already heard it short cycle once since coming back from work. I'll find my electronics cleaner and get on the roof and clean up contacts when I have a little free time. Chassis battery Replacement Steven P 4 hours ago The PO of my coach had AGMs put in when I bought it 3 years ago and I've been very pleased. I really like not having to watch the water. I know it's easy to watch, but with my work and just life in general I find it's one less thing for me to have to worry about. Ground location in dash MHRookie 4 hours ago All, 2003 Monaco Dynasty princess 42’. Fuel & tranny gauges quit working. Does anyone know where the ground bar is behind the dash! I’ve taken the panel off the driver’s side and it’s not jumping out at me... tranny temp gauge don’t wiggle, fuel gauge tries to move at key on but don’t move. I tried adjusting it & that’s not it. thanks for any help.. Kurt Ground location in dash klcdenver 4 hours ago Just run a new ground wire to one of the gauges and see if that is the real problem. Ground location in dash Timaz996 4 hours ago It should be far forward under the top of the dash. Copper wire connecting to an aluminum ground bar doesn't work well. Who at Monaco thought this was a good idea? Tim Fan Clutch disengaged vito.a 4 hours ago I'm not sure about the 2000 M11, but the 2000 Cummins ISC has a mechanical wax valve. From a post by Van Will: My 2000 Dynasty, Oregon-built in late 1999, was originally equipped with a wax controller. It is a small device plugged into the top rear of the radiator with two small hydraulic lines attached to it.

Chassis battery Replacement Scotty Hutto 3 hours ago Plus you have a really nice looking, freshly painted battery tray! 😁 new head lights Scotty Hutto 2 hours ago Still a goal for some of us... Alternator Question Nosmo179 2 hours ago Just a guess... to me it comes on when the key is on but engine is off let's you know the light is working. Steve King 1996 Dynasty new head lights Scotty Hutto 2 hours ago Bill, I'm no expert on headlights, but I have fooled around a lot with the ones on my 2006 Dip and learned a few things the hard ($) way. Couple of thoughts from a lighting engineer: - I sell LED lights (street lighting to utilities, mainly) for a living. We spend a lot of time and money on engineering to make sure the light coming out of the LEDs goes in the right place - it's not easy! Don't get me wrong -- I love LEDs; they feed my family. ...and LEDs will put out a LOT MORE light for the energy used, BUT... the reflectors in your headlamp assembly determine where that light goes. Unless you really do your homework and get LEDs with the exact shape, size, and focal point of the Halogen lights they're replacing (no small feat), most of that extra light goes in the wrong places (i.e., oncoming driver's eye, shoulder of the road, etc.). Also, technically speaking LED headlights in a reflector designed for Halogen (incandescent) bulbs aren't DOT approved, and I hear that in certain places you can get a ticket if caught with LED retrofit bulbs. - Aftermarket headlight assemblies abound, from cheap to expensive. Short of a specialty company that knows what they're doing (see JD's comments above), spend the extra $$$ and buy OEM Lincoln headlight assemblies. (Mine are from a 2000 Buick Century. My coach came from the factory with TYCO knock-offs that put light everywhere but the road. I found actual OEM units on GMParts.com for about 50% more than knock offs, and the difference in light distribution is quite noticeable.) - If you stick with incandescent (Halogen) headlights, make sure you're getting good voltage to the bulbs. My coach did not use relays and ran the headlight current through the headlight switch (!!!). IF your coach doesn't use relays for the headlights, adding them will improve your voltage and light output. The best source for info on how to do this is http://www.danielsternlighting.com/tech/relays/relays.html. Warning: Daniel Stern hates LED headlights. - Aiming is critical. Good article at http://www.danielsternlighting.com/tech/aim/aim.html As for me, I've gotten great results with actual GM OEM headlights from a 2000 Buick Century (to replace the TYCO knockoffs - in your case it would be actual Lincoln OEM headlights), a well engineered, but (not super high-output) LED bulb, and some basic headlight aiming. Hope that helps. Monaco coach value trends Scotty Hutto 2 hours ago But, but, but... that's what we DO. Location of fuse for Dash mounted 12V Aux power plugs mandms59 2 hours ago I am trying to find location of fuse for the two 12V power receptacles on dash next to A/C control unit. Think I inadvertently blew fuse when testing install of replacement USB receptacle. I thought it would be on the Front Run bay panel - thinking it would be F29 accessory ... fuse was good. I pulled up 2006 Diplomat Wiring Diagram book and traced it to panel/combo plug C333... but cannot find that corresponding # in Front Run Bay or any other reference I have on-hand- though maybe I am reading the DWG incorrectly (attached excerpt (pg 46 of 50 in book or Pg 3 of Radio Panel Diagram - States Endeavor 05 in title block but part of 06 Diplomat book). I have gone thru the 12V Front Distribution Wiring Diagram trying to correlate information to no avail. Is there another location I should be looking in? Thanks for any assistance/guidance. R/ Mark new head lights windsorbill06 2 hours ago Great information videos posted. Scotty, thanks for the link to the headlight relays. I need to 'dive' in and see if mine have relays or direct wired. Between that, and the hazed lenses, that might be my issue. Alternator Question The Beast 1 hour ago My 2002 does the same thing. I checked the charging voltage and it stays at 13.8 volts. I have had no problem ( knock on wood ) for 2 years. new head lights cbr046 1 hour ago Scotty, you're absolutely right about mixing halogen reflectors with HID or LED bulbs. There's gonna be issues to deal with. With HIDs light went EVERWHERE and I'm kinda surprised I never got a ticket. Both those vehicles are gone so don't flame me! Our Endeavor came with TYC / LEDs. The high beam is pretty good but obviously can't be used in traffic. The low beam has a lot of shadows, and not much distance. It's a matter of getting them "acceptable", but I'll never be happy. It might be worthwhile to find some junkyard assemblies (2000 Lincoln LS for me) and carve the projectors into the low beams. Clean up the lenses and they'd be good.

Thx to all for ur help Chassis battery charging jimc99999 3 minutes ago The Heliotrope can show those numbers at night, so it seems like it's attempting to show battery voltage. Recently it has been accurately displaying battery voltage. It does show voltages for each set of batteries, although the chassis batteries are connected to the house side.

  9. Bill, I'm no expert on headlights, but I have fooled around a lot with the ones on my 2006 Dip and learned a few things the hard ($) way. Couple of thoughts from a lighting engineer: - I sell LED lights (street lighting to utilities, mainly) for a living. We spend a lot of time and money on engineering to make sure the light coming out of the LEDs goes in the right place - it's not easy! Don't get me wrong -- I love LEDs; they feed my family. ...and LEDs will put out a LOT MORE light for the energy used, BUT... the reflectors in your headlamp assembly determine where that light goes. Unless you really do your homework and get LEDs with the exact shape, size, and focal point of the Halogen lights they're replacing (no small feat), most of that extra light goes in the wrong places (i.e., oncoming driver's eye, shoulder of the road, etc.). Also, technically speaking LED headlights in a reflector designed for Halogen (incandescent) bulbs aren't DOT approved, and I hear that in certain places you can get a ticket if caught with LED retrofit bulbs. - Aftermarket headlight assemblies abound, from cheap to expensive. Short of a specialty company that knows what they're doing (see JD's comments above), spend the extra $$$ and buy OEM Lincoln headlight assemblies. (Mine are from a 2000 Buick Century. My coach came from the factory with TYCO knock-offs that put light everywhere but the road. I found actual OEM units on GMParts.com for about 50% more than knock offs, and the difference in light distribution is quite noticeable.) - If you stick with incandescent (Halogen) headlights, make sure you're getting good voltage to the bulbs. My coach did not use relays and ran the headlight current through the headlight switch (!!!). IF your coach doesn't use relays for the headlights, adding them will improve your voltage and light output. The best source for info on how to do this is http://www.danielsternlighting.com/tech/relays/relays.html. Warning: Daniel Stern hates LED headlights. - Aiming is critical. Good article at http://www.danielsternlighting.com/tech/aim/aim.html As for me, I've gotten great results with actual GM OEM headlights from a 2000 Buick Century (to replace the TYCO knockoffs - in your case it would be actual Lincoln OEM headlights), a well engineered, but (not super high-output) LED bulb, and some basic headlight aiming. Hope that helps.
  10. Plus you have a really nice looking, freshly painted battery tray! 😁

Can't move. a4epilot 4 hours ago New Posts new head lights cbr046 23 hours ago #1 - I like to get home ASAP #2 - I don't like driving in Atlanta during the day . . . . and I live in the Atlanta burbs! #3 - There's less traffic at night. And less crazy people. Also the winds die down at night. That said the HR is MUCH better than the Fleetwood in windy conditions. #4 - Dash AC doesn't keep up with daytime heating. OTOH I travel year round, and it gets cold too. Typical scenario is to pull out on Friday or early Saturday. If driving through ATL it's a 5 - 5:30 departure before the morning commute builds. Chill out at camp site (cow pasture) with 300 - 900 of my best friends on Saturday. Race on Sunday. Leave race anywhere between 3pm - 6pm. If I get tired I'll stop. Arriving at 1am is typical and 3am isn't unusual but I've been known to drive until daylight the next day. Rest areas aren't the best security, and they fill up early. Truck stops are ok but they fill up early too, and it's tough backing up a 10 ft trailer with a 39 ft tow vehicle between two 18 wheelers in the dark. I've had my fill of Wally World, way too noisy if they're open 24 hrs. Worst part is I don't have a job to get to on Monday. Just something about home. - bob Rear AC compressor turns on then off quickly Ivylog 19 hours ago Our units are not bad… it’s a temperature sensing issue, usually when there is only a slight difference in the set temperature and actual temperature. OP, when mine starts short cycling, I can stop mine from doing this by getting out of bed and lowering the temperature on the Tstat several degrees… now when it starts it usually keeps running and this is why messing with the remote temp sensor helps the issue. Monaco coach value trends Ivylog 18 hours ago Stacy^^^ you need to check for additional bracing on the front cap. Without these additional braces, breaking the windshield is a known problem, especially using auto leveling. Otherwise a 06 is a good rig. new head lights bobdinsmore 18 hours ago I've also used Sam's Club restoration service with excellent results: three years and no sign of deterioration. And inexpensive at $40. Monaco coach value trends Tony G 18 hours ago Thank you all for your insight. I no longer keep a sticks and bricks home in the US and live nearly 100% on our sailing boat (we're currently in Dominica headed back to Trinidad) but I use my rig to visit customers in the US and keep it for that utility. We did spend most of last year living and enjoying traveling in it during the COVID event as ocean travel was severely impacted but I didn't visit many customers. I love our bus but debate in my mind if it makes sense to keep it if COVID mess continues on. If I were to sell I'll could buy another one later when needed but I dread debugging another land yacht. Monaco coach value trends JDCrow 16 hours ago Debugging, wife has forbid me from taking another used coach that needs work down the road. It’s new, or someone else does the work she says. Awesome on the boat life. Some true freedom to be had. At a Loss for what to do Brett63 15 hours ago Not sure what section this should even go in...lol We picked up our current 09 Signature last Aug. After getting a few minor bugs worked out I started having issues that I have yet to be able to figure out, or even where to take the coach to have it looked at. This started last November after running from AZ to OK. Everything was fine when we shut down and sat for a couple weeks. When we started back up the trouble began and has not stopped. When I drive the ATC, Check Engine, and Check Transmission lights come on, Sometimes they come on all at once, sometimes it will just be one of them, sometimes none. They will randomly blink in no specific order. Speed or RPM does not effect anything. Obviously when the ATC light is on I have no cruise control or engine brake. They just randomly blink on and off, stay on, stay off......who know what they will do. When they do this the transmission shift panel either goes blank (not showing gear or gear selection) or I get the two horizontal lines with the diagonal line through each. The couple times I have been able to pull the codes via the transmission selector it says low voltage. I have checked every ground I can find, I have been under the coach and unplugged the trans ECM and checked it. I have checked everything I know to no avail. I have the Chassis Multiplex system. Would this be an issue with that? Is it a possible ground that I can't find somewhere? Where do I take it to even start to troubleshoot, knowing the multiplex system is basically a dead horse in finding anyone that can do anything on to it or to diagnose it. I just need a starting point on trying to figure it out. When all of this is blinking and beeping nothing is effected other than the cruise and engine brake. No codes, no loss of power/speed. This tells me it is purely electrical/electronic in signaling and not true faults or issues. Any help is vastly appreciated. We love the coach, but damn if this aint frustrating. 09 Signature with the chassis multiplex Slide sweeps Brett63 15 hours ago I figured out what I had and was able to order new from Steelrubber. I was able to buy a 1/2" wider sweep which will fix my issue. New should be here Tuesday. Girard slide topper Brett63 15 hours ago Got ready to leave Friday and the slide topper over the main living slide would not retract. Got a ladder and was able to pull the topper completely out (unroll) and was able to figure out how to remove the fabric so I could get the slide in but the roller still doesn't retract. As I pulled the fabric out the roller felt like it was catching on a gear about every 1-2" of fabric pull which I suspect is correct, but it will not rewind. Pulling out was absolutely under tension. I was able to remove the fabric without locking the roller in place and I just drove 1000 miles and the roller is still locked in place. How do I get it to retract.....lol what happened while the slide was out that locked the roller from retracting and how can I fix it......lol Rear AC compressor turns on then off quickly Dr4Film 15 hours ago My front AC (installed in 2010) started short cycling sometime back in 2017. During the summer of 2018 I tried replacing the hard start and run capacitors, no joy. I messed around with the remote sensor as my thermostat is located next to the bed, no joy. I even disconnected the remote sensor which then it defaults to the thermostat, no joy. Then later that fall it finally stopped working completely. We then used the rear AC until that quit just before leaving to travel back home to Florida. Not a pleasant trip. Once home I purchased two Dometic Penguin-II's and installed them with the new CCC-2 thermostat, no more short cycling! They have been working great ever since and put out more cold air than the previous version of Penguin's. Rear AC compressor turns on then off quickly amphi_sc 14 hours ago Just a guess ... Try replugging the communication cables at t-stat, inline ceiling connectors, and roof unit control board several times to clean the contacts. Try some old style radio shack TV tuner cleaner if you have it. If rear unit daisy chained from the front, also replug front unit connectors at the control board. However, this would not explain the generator operation. Monaco coach value trends Wrayj1 14 hours ago Just a little food for thought: new coaches have lots of problems, but as you stated that would be someone else's problem under warranty. However, I have been reading about and hearing horror stories about people buying new and having it in the shop for months at a time because dealers can't get parts. Folks are saying that after 2010 the quality has gone downhill. . Rear AC compressor turns on then off quickly Steven P 14 hours ago We are remodeling our house for the next couple of months so I'll be trying the above suggestions and keep everyone updated. I did mess w the thermostat remote sensor some, but put it back like it was. At a Loss for what to do Frank McElroy 14 hours ago Brett, you might have a communication issue but more likely you are having fuel filters that are starting to plug. When that happens, an early sign is the atc light comes on. When the transmission computer detects that the engine is not generating the target power output, the trans will shut off the ATC system. Try changing your diesel fuel filters. Monaco coach value trends JDCrow 14 hours ago Trust me, I know. My Wife takes time to come around. We are a good 2-3 years with the Dip, from there who knows where life takes us. I’m a pre-Def/Dpf believer. So really 08 or older. I’m also a big block believer (Don’t hate me 5.9ers) Country Coach is high on my list. But like OP said, prices are CRAZY now. Genset Fuel Filter Change scottjo02 14 hours ago Mine is 7.5 kw but probably has the same issue. I hated that steel line. Very difficult to start the threads. I put a flex line in place of the steel one. Bought a flex line which was a little long and made a loop up and then back down. One end fitting on the new line was good to go into the end opposite the filter. On the filter end I cut the flex line and put a 90 degree barb fitting into the flex line with a hose clamp. The only remaining issue is that all the fittings must be tightened very, very tight to stop leakage. Best to use flare wrenches and almost need to use a cheater on them. I have inspected the flares and they are either new (such as on the new filter) or there is no damage on them. Anyone else have this tightening issue? Scott 02 Knight Steering pull Tom Cherry 14 hours ago LOTS of things STILL to be checked....but take them one at at time... TOTALLY unload the MH. Then set the pressures about 8 PSI lower than the plate on the driver's door. NEXT.....VERY IMPORATNT....what is the Tag AXLE pressure. IF it is jacked up then it does funky things to the steering and handling....as well as the tire wear. I think it should be in the 60 PSI range UNLOADED....but I am NOT a Tag Axle person. DRIVE IT after you do that. If it does NOT pull....then you might just be a victim of not being properly set up. As the guys have pointed out....proper weight distribution is IMPERATIVE...and Folks have have crazy issues, including blowouts, when the Tag pressure was set way too high. HYDRAULIC. YES to the above....but bear in mind. You PROBABLY have the Texaco Rando OIL (not ATF). That DOES need to be maintained. You have a Nelson 3 filter system. If you have the manual, there is an excellent writeup. However, if you download the 2002 and 2004 manuals you can also get the info. Monaco does not have your 2003 manual online. BUT....if your cooling is fine, then I sort of rule out the hydraulic system. Your radiator fans are driven off the same system. Therefore, any issues with pressure would result in cooling issues. BUT....you also need to KNOW what type of fluid you have. If you have a Straw colored fluid (let it drip on a piece or paper), you do NEED to replace the spin on filter and the 3 Nelson filters inside the reservoir. IF you have a Redish colored fluid, it is ATF. TRW recommends that you switch or replenish that with the Transynd Allison fluid. That is NOW their requirement for long range or extended warranty. Mobil makes an equivalent...Delvac Synthetic that is an excellent substitute. I would NOT use any other synthetic... I ALSO wonder about the gear Box. IF you have, hopefully, the TRW, then it has a centering or play adjustment. THAT could be the issue and any good front end shop should be able to adjust this. Good Luck....let us know and keep us informed. That is how we all learn At a Loss for what to do Brett63 14 hours ago Frank, would this hold true when the trans codes show low voltage? I am going to see if my code reader will pull codes fromt he engine ECM, but have not yet. At a Loss for what to do Frank McElroy 13 hours ago No, if you are showing codes for low voltage it is a battery/cable not a fuel issue. This is a multiplex coach and unfortunately, BOTH house and chassis batteries need to be charging when driving. If both battery banks and not reading the same charging voltage, it's likely time to clean big boy. Radiator leak Rikadoo 12 hours ago Good Morning everyone, Well its done, I managed to remove and replace my radiator. after reading many others account how they managed there replacement I can once again state these coaches are truly like snowflakes and this project was no different. I did eventually go with Source for the radiator which was $2700 and the aluminum radiator is no longer available thru them. The company that actually made my new radiator is the same company which made the original aluminum one though. FYI when ordering the radiator I was told I needed the part number on the tag which was to be on the old radiator, when I removed it there was no such tag, it was not until the job was completed that I discovered that the tag was mounted on the FAN SHROUD that was covered in years of dirt. So if your ever faced with having to replace your radiator FIRST look on the shroud on the top left, it has the needed PN. My job took the span of several weeks due to other parts that were hindered because of Covid as well as labor shortages, then the intense heat wave I had to suffer thru. When I had the radiator out I had perfect access to the engine, so I replaced hoses, water pump, t-stats tensioners, belts plus took the alternator off and had it rebuilt, as well as replace the fan due to chunks missing on the blades. I cut a hole in the shroud and covered it with a piece of sheet metal so I would now have access to clean out the shroud, I then (on the advise of a member here) installed two water valves that would allow me the ability to cut the supply to the heater core in the event someday when it fails If needed I made a detailed account of what was done and HOW to remove the radiator that was different from Peters listed in this thread, however never being short of words when describing the events accumulated 3 pages of text which I will spare everyone here UNLESS you ask me. I will be more than happy to send it to you, I will say it feels Soooooo good knowing that job is done, and once again I have learned so much from the experience, Thank You everyone for all you wisdom and experience that guided me thru this ordeal. At a Loss for what to do Brett63 12 hours ago I have done that already using your video. I feel both sets of batts are charging fine. No reason to think they are not. Only code I am able to pull right now is from the transmission shift pad, and it shows low voltage as the only code. Let me see if I can pull it and can give exactly what it says. At a Loss for what to do Brett63 12 hours ago Frank, here are the two codes on the trans shift pad. D1 U 0103 - U0103 Loss of communication with the first switch gear ON. Remains in the selected broadcast, monitors signal a change of direction. Display goes off on 10 sec, then shows-/-/- D2 P2793 - P2793 An error occurred while communicating with the switch gear ON. Ignores a PWM (pulse width modulation) signal via CANbus also lost, blocked the last selected direction With that, I am not sure exactly what it tells me...lol I don't know if this also then triggers the ATC and check engine lights, or if one of those triggers this light. Then I don't know what would cause whatever triggers what. Probably should move this to the engine/trans forum. Steering pull Paul A. 11 hours ago Which tag on the "door"? Why at 60 P S I? Water empty too?? How much fuel??? Why not weigh it in the configuration you want and then set the down pressure to ???? I am confused as to what results your opinion and speculations will bring. Rear AC compressor turns on then off quickly Bob Wightman 11 hours ago i have the same problem, but the odd thing is that it seems to act up mostly when the rear TV is on. And it's not the TV as I upgraded the size of the bedroom TV and the new one does the same thing. I never spent the time to troubleshoot it as we are just occasional weekend campers that rarely use the TV's. If somebody has figured this out i'll continue to follow as I would like to get it fixed...or if I find out what is causing it I will post the results. 2004 Monaco Knight Radiator leak PeterSchweizer 11 hours ago Glad you tackled the job n rebuilt or replaced things when you had the access. You made it worry free and should get another 100,000 miles. Plus the thousands you saved in labor parts markup and stuck somewhere costs. Well done! Carry on! Job well done Rear AC compressor turns on then off quickly Dr4Film 11 hours ago I was plagued with a nagging mysterious electronic problem in the coach for a very long time. The tank sensors were acting weird at times plus the Intellitec EMS display was indicating incorrect information at times also. Luckily, by coincidence I eventually tracked it down to a bad over the counter fluorescent lamp fixture sitting over the kitchen sink. Replaced the entire fixture versus just the ballast as the cover was cracked and in bad shape also. No more mysterious gremlins running around the coach. 2008 Monaco Knight chassis Jim McFarland 11 hours ago I have a 09 Monaco Knight and all my paper work show ours to be a road master frame. Jim Microwave Convection Oven Hancoman 11 hours ago Have the opposite problem convection works microwave doesn’t At a Loss for what to do Frank McElroy 11 hours ago Understanding how these systems work together can sometimes help to diagnose the issue. A lot of odd codes will show up if there is a fuel or electrical issue. From your list of codes, especially one of low voltage points me in the direction of an electrical issue. If when the check engine and ATC lights come on you are seeing charging at both the house and chassis batteries, that would tell you that your battery and charging systems and big boy are fine. But, this doesn't eliminate a communication issue between the engine and trans modules. On your coach, I believe that the engine ECM is powered by the chassis batteries but the trans ECM and dash gauges are powered by the house batteries. Unfortunately, your dash only shows the chassis battery voltage and not the house battery voltage. That's why it's important to know both the house and chassis battery voltages when you see the problem. An intermittent big boy charging issue could easily cause this problem especially if running at night with the lights on or if recharging nearly dead house batteries without using the generator. Since you are seeing a low battery voltage error at the trans readout, is there also a low voltage engine ECM code stored? Such a code could be a bad voltage cable or ground at the engine or trans ecm. It's important to see what codes are stored at the engine ECM. If there are any engine to trans communication issues or the engine doesn't generate the expected amount of power, the trans will disable the ATC system and turn on the ATC fault light. Captain seats Mike H 11 hours ago Once the original fabric was removed from our seats we discovered the heating pads had pretty much deteriorated and was broken. BUT, living in Florida and never traveling up in snow country I decided that was no big deal so I didn't bother replacing them. I have heated seats in my truck and never use the heat option. All in all I think the upholsterer did a decent job. Here are the before and after: Serpentine Belt part# for Cummins 400ISL? NGADawgs 10 hours ago Thanks for the info guys! I have them on order. I really appreciate this website and all of the great info. When I bought the coach last October, I had systems overload.

With a mechanic friend helping, and all of the great input from you guys. I think this thing is really gonna work and create some great memories! Serpentine Belt part# for Cummins 400ISL? RNMCBR 10 hours ago You are welcome Gary. We’ve had our 07 Diplomat for over 7 years now. At this point, there is hardly a system that I haven’t touched. There is a wealth of information on this forum and iRV2. Don’t hesitate to reach out. There will always be those who say leave it to the pro’s but others who will tackle anything. Figure out where you fit and there will be someone with the experience to help you. All the best, Roy Monaco coach value trends Tony G 9 hours ago Ha! Kind of like new boats...fraught with problems and when you leave the US getting parts in many places is impossible. We bring loads of spares for our 40 year old cutter which takes up lots of storage space but its nice to have when we or some other cruiser needs it. We say that "cruising is fixing your boat in exotic places" and I guess the same holds true for traveling with the motorcoach. At a Loss for what to do DavidL 6 hours ago sounds like a CAN bus failure. Ok, what is ATC - automatic Temperature Control? Anyway...all of the controllers can share a single CAN bus (network). If one of the controller's isn't happy, it can spit out noise on the network that affects the other controllers. So, disconnect fuses one at a time that feeds power to the various modules until the noise goes away and the majority of controllers are happy. Further then isolate if it's a wiring issue to the controller or the controller itself. You can check resistance to ensure the end points have their normal 60ohm resistance (120 when both ends are correct and plugged in). If the CAN bus is shorted or open, then split the bus in half and retest to determine which half is wrong. If you don't have the tools (scan tool, oscilloscope, etc) or the experience, this can be a tricky diagnostic. I just went through the same with my wife's Escalade...ended up the suspension controller had a hole rusted through that allowed water into the brain causing corrosion and which then didn't pass the bus messages to the next controller on the network. Serpentine Belt part# for Cummins 400ISL? Gary M 6 hours ago Hi Roy I see u have an 07 Dip. I hope Im not being to forward about wondering if u have the wiring diagrams for your coach. Ive ran into several Monaco owners of the 07 that do not have them. If u would share them with this club I think I could get them to join. Right now they are with a different group. Anyway just thought I would throw that to you. Gary M At a Loss for what to do Dave Houchin 6 hours ago Does the speedometer stop working and does the trans act different shifting gears?

Brett BTW, where are you located, we may be rolling by you sometime....lol Serpentine Belt part# for Cummins 400ISL? RNMCBR 6 hours ago Hi Gary, What I have is a collection of wiring diagrams I got from Monaco a few years ago. They are not specific to the 07 Diplomat but cover most of the systems fairly well. They also cover multiple years and multiple models. Also, there is no organization to them and no listing of systems covered. But I have found them to be generally sufficient. I took mine to Kinkos and had them printed on 11x14 paper and spiral bound. Here is what I have.

They are not specific to the 07 Diplomat but cover most of the systems fairly well. They also cover multiple years and multiple models. Also, there is no organization to them and no listing of systems covered. But I have found them to be generally sufficient. I took mine to Kinkos and had them printed on 11x14 paper and spiral bound. Here is what I have. Roy Hmmmm....not sure the files transmitted. My copy of my response shows them Unavailable. If you can't see them, let me know and I will try something else. Or maybe, I can figure out how to post them on the forum. Serpentine Belt part# for Cummins 400ISL? Gary M 5 hours ago Wow! Thats how I got mine from Rev. Still organizing my 250 diagrams for my Knight. Serpentine Belt part# for Cummins 400ISL? RNMCBR 5 hours ago I just tried uploading them to the forum - Title: 07 Diplomat Wiring Diagrams. I think the moderator has to approve them though before they will be posted. Serpentine Belt part# for Cummins 400ISL? Gary M 5 hours ago Yup they do. I usually just email to Frank McElroy. Then he uploads them. Serpentine Belt part# for Cummins 400ISL? NGADawgs 5 hours ago Wow...Thanks Roy. All I had was the main chassis diagram, I didn't know the others existed. I am sure these will come in handy for sure. Rear AC compressor turns on then off quickly trailmug 5 hours ago Not doing it on generator is interesting.. shore power is usually lower voltage than what you get off of the genset (longer cables, shared use, crappy pedestal maintenance, etc). Maybe there is some high resistance in the mix somewhere. Measuring line voltage at the unit while it's doing it could be informative. Serpentine Belt part# for Cummins 400ISL? Gary M 5 hours ago Woah!! Don’t forget me. 😎 I asked Roy if he had them. Chassis battery Replacement Joelsheriff 4 hours ago What are the advantages of drawbacks of changing to AGM 12v chassis batteries instead of sealed lead acid? What should a decent AGM 12v battery cost. TIA Rear AC compressor turns on then off quickly jacwjames 4 hours ago The common denominator is the EMS system. On generator it does not limit the amp draw. To eliminate EMS component simply switch which relays the AC's connect to. Rear AC compressor turns on then off quickly Steven P 4 hours ago @trailmug @jacwjames I was wrong about the generator. It did short cycle this AM on genny. I edited the original post earlier w an update at the beginning since that should change things up. I've always wondered about the thermostat sensor being a culprit. No vents blow directly on it. I've thought about putting a heat gun near it when it's doing it bad to see what happens. I like the idea of switching the intellitec around and seeing if the front does it. Chassis battery Replacement cbr046 4 hours ago I Googled AGM vs Flooded cell and got this - https://www.crownbattery.com/news/agm-vs-flooded-batteries-what-you-need-to-know Not a black & white answer but it does spell out pros & cons. My coach batts are flooded cells. When we picked up the coach in Feb ALL the cells were dry as a bone. Bummer, but now I keep a gallon of distilled water in the compartment and check them regularly. I've had to top them off once (still above the plates but not by much). They perform ok but when I arrive somewhere the coach goes into recharge mode. The chassis batts are AGMs. So far no issues. On our Mini Cooper the computer had to be programmed when the AGM was replaced. AGMs do charge differently than flooded. Apparently they're a little more finickey but not as extreme as lithium ion. From all the reading I've done I think I'd be happier with flooded cells and more money in my wallet but only if the recharging system is generic. Batteries Plus has additional perspective - https://www.batteriesplus.com/blog/power/car-battery-types If the system is designed for AGM then AGM should be the replacement (like the Mini). And AGM has lower internal resistance, meaning more cranking power. For a diesel that sounds great. So maybe I wouldn't be happier with flooded cell for chassis batteries. My 2c, and probably not even worth that. - bob Slideout stuck partially in. Can't move. a4epilot 4 hours ago There are 2 motors available on Amazon. I went with the least expensive one for $336. It's the same one Talin RV (Chris T) uses. They put me on to it. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003D3IYMW?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2_dt_b_product_details The original motor supplied by Lippert does have the clutch built into the main gear in the motor assembly. I just installed the new motor built by AP Products in China. It does not have a clutch. I prefer this as it's one less thing to wear out as did mine. The motor simply stalls out when the slide reaches full travel in either direction. That's exactly what happens with my other slides. Gary K Rear AC compressor turns on then off quickly trailmug 3 hours ago Got it. Ours short cycled on two occasions.. the Intellitec load shedding device kept tripping erroneously. That circuit is shared with the washer, which only ever seems to draw about 4A, so I bridged the hot wires with an Alumiconn. The circuit might be overcommited by the nameplates, but in practice it stays under 20A and works fine. On the second occasion, the indoor temperature sensor wire broke, and made an intermittent connection. I noticed it mainly happened when the slide was extended, so I measured the temp sensor connector resistance while my wife moved the slide. The value jumped around, so I ran a new temp sensor wire, this time not in the slide. I don't think this one's your issue, since your fan continues to run, unless you're not using the auto fan setting. Frost sensor issue would cause the compressor to cut out and the fan to go to high speed, so probably not that, unless you had the fan set to high already. Dirty RJ-11 couplers in the ceiling cause some weird stuff as previously mentioned. I'm not sure if these have a high pressure cutout switch inline with the compressor.. I don't think they do. Intellitec Support - CPU and Keypad backups and restores pwhittle 3 hours ago Hi Brett, I am finalizing the instructions and the tools to make removing the keypad covers easier. I want to make it as easy as possible for users. The kit will allow you to backup and restore your main CPU and your keypads. You will also be able to change which functions are on each key on the keypads, so if you have a spare key position, you can assign a function to it. Changing the programming within the CPU is not typically possible for end users, but is available from resellers. The keypads in our coaches were specific to Monaco and are no longer available. Other Intellitec PMC keypads will function, but will look different and may need you to enlarge the hole the keypad is mounted in. I am located in Woodstock, GA, a northern suburb of Atlanta. We have a trip planned to go to Chicago in late July. Paul Kit to replace Intec mirror mounted side cameras woodylmiller 3 hours ago Paul, I am replacing my system, the rear and side cameras and monitor. I'm going with a split screen quad 10 inch monitor. My side view cameras are mounted inside the mirrors, they are not exterior hanging below the mirror. I have no desire to keep or replace them. I will go with new surface mounted side cameras. I have the old Sony camera in the rear which is going in the garbage along with the current monitor in the dash. My camera selector switch died and the boys in Coburg say it is no longer available. So, I need two side view cameras and a rear view and the where-with-all to re-use the 6 pin connector wiring on the old rear Sony camera. I can splice onto the existing wiring, that's no problem, if that will work. If you can help me with that, great, I'd rather give the money to you. I'm hoping to be able to mount the new rear camera in the same factory housing as the Sony. Trouble is I have no idea yet how to affix the housing to the rear cap. Someone at some time had gone in a fiddled around with something and the housing was held in place with silicone. The mounting hardware can not be accessed from the outside. Not sure if I can get to the rear cap from the inside the coach through the wardrobe closet. By the way, do you drive with that monitor sitting where it is on the dash? I'm in the process of trying to get a monitor to fit somehow without obstructing my view while driving. Thanks in advance for any help. Woody Miller 09 Dynasty Regal IV Kit to replace Intec mirror mounted side cameras pwhittle 3 hours ago Hi Woody, I drive with the monitor and other devices like that. I do not find it obstructs my view to any noticeable degree. I try not to get that close to vehicles in front of me, and there are gaps between the screens to see immediately in front if necessary. There are various video switches/combiners available on Amazon that work well. Take a look at @Scotty Hutto’s camera update thread. On our 2005 Signature access to the rear camera is from outside. A plate screws off from the rear outside and our camera is mounted to that. If you see silicone, you likely have to slice through it to remove a plate, then clean it up and use silicone to reinstall it. Can you post some pictures of yours? Chassis battery Replacement Dennis H 1 hour ago My Monaco manual spells out the MINIMUM specs for the chassis battery.

Jim Bob 21 hours ago I replaced the unit on the front. There is nothing really difficult except they are pretty heavy and I'd recommend having someone help you get the new unit up there. I managed with a rope and protection on the side of the coach, but it was not fun at all. Its been several years, but I seem to remember one of the bolts broke when I was removing the old unit, of course it had been there for 20 years. Also, the wiring can be a problem. My front AC thermostat also was the control for the furnace and was not compatible. My solution was to install separate thermostats instead of a combination. Air bags on rear road side slow to inflate Hypoxia 20 hours ago The levelling valve may be going bad, a common problem. and easily replaced. Mine are Hadley 450 valves.

SeaLand Magnum Opus Toilet - Wanted pwhittle 19 hours ago Hi All! I am looking for a mechanism from a Magnum Opus toilet. A member here has graciously loaned me his spare unit for the last 12 months or so and I want to return it to him in advance of his upcoming trip. I know some people,have replaced them and maybe someone has one laying around if you are like me and cannot bear to throw anything away, even if it is no longer useful. 😀 Let me know and I am happy to pay for it as well as shipping. Thanks in advance! Paul Air bags on rear road side slow to inflate obb_taurus 17 hours ago Thanks for the responses everyone. Sorry, should have included in my post that it is HWH air leveling. Anyone know if there are any videos around on replacing the valves? Ac Filter? Poohbear 17 hours ago Hi everyone I have a 2004 signature and was trying to find info on the ac filter location. The coach had the decorated ceiling over where the ac is but I cant seem to see a filter or see a way to lower the ceiling fixture to get to it. So what is the deal? Ac Filter? Paul Busch 17 hours ago My 2005 sig castle has an oblong mirror detail in the living room and smalller one in the bedroom. One has 3 bolts and 2 for the other. They are under the trim detail and easily reached with a socket extension. The other side is hinged so have someone help hold it. Easy to do with help. paulb 400 ISL No Start 2007 Monaco Camelot Dr4Film 17 hours ago Mike, what did you do to get it started? Any changes? One word of caution, Cummins does not recommend idling their engines for long periods of time at any rpm less than 1000. Good luck with the generator. Ac Filter? Pepperell 17 hours ago In our coach the cloud has three 7/16” bolts along the street side, and hinges along the curb side, you’ll need a stool to see them. Using a socket wrench with a 3” extension unbolt the end bolts first then the center bolt. This cloud weighs upward of 60 pounds or more, so have some one ready to help lower it when that last bolt is removed. At that point all will be revealed. I have no idea what the factory used, my 2003 coach had 20 by 20 inch furnace filters. My 2006 coach has a/c loose foam type filters that can be rinsed and reused. When I ordered a replacement a/c I also ordered the plastic cover that would be used for a non cloud installation. It came with the loose foam type like you’d find on a home window a/c. Ac Filter? Paul A. 17 hours ago I replaced the OEM bolts with longer ones to accommodate the removal and re installing them. Much more convenient. Don't need to fight with the extension. 400 ISL No Start 2007 Monaco Camelot FishAR 16 hours ago Thanks for that tip. So I guess if I start it again I should just let it get up to temperature and then shut it down? The only things I did different were leave the key on longer before trying to start, and praying more and harder. Has anyone added monitors, usb ports, 12 vdc ports above dash? woodylmiller 16 hours ago My rear view camera is not working most of the time, as soon as I start rolling. The current monitor is small and outdated. The factory 12 vdc, cigarette lighter style ports are too loose to be of any value, we put tooth picks along with our plugs to get them to maintain contact. So, a remodel is in order. Trouble is my dash does not have much real estate to work with. I had a Pioneer double din radio put in, that doesn't pick up any radio stations 99% of the time while in motion, so that can go away. My current monitor and radio are mounted in the dash one above the other. I want to install a 10 monitor, quad screen. At least two usb ports and two 12 vdc ports. The current location of my monitor is low and very hard to see, basically the monitor sucks. I'd like to make a small cabinet, for lack of a better word, to hold these add-ons that would sit on top of my dash. We also have a TPMS that needs a home as well and would be part of this cabinet. Would love to see some pics of how and where anyone has put a large monitor on top of their dash. Also, any recommendations on a new rear view camera/monitor? Looking at a FooKoo, 10 inch quad and four cameras. I don't need new cameras except for the rear view. I have removed the housing of the rear view camera and there is not much room in there, but something should be able to fit in there with IR for night vision. One other thing, I would like to use a wired camera/monitor. I have read where the wireless systems do not function well at highway speeds. Any truth to these rumors? Thanks, Woody 09 Dynasty Regal IV Back up camera wiring woodylmiller 16 hours ago I'm going through something similar. Someone had gone in a spliced, really a hatchet job with black tape, and cheap black tape at that at both ends. 6 pin connector at camera, which I am looking to replace with something better. Same with monitor, current one is junk. Hoping with the use of adaptors to use the current cable from rear to a new monitor. Hard to figure out what exactly happened at the dash end, splicing and black tape. I will be looking more closely at it soon once I find a new camera/monitor that I want to install. Willing to listen to any ideas on new camera/monitor, but would like to go with a 10 inch quad screen monitor. I don't like taking my eyes off the road for too many seconds to check my monitor. LOL. thanks, Woody 09 Dynasty Regal IV Has anyone added monitors, usb ports, 12 vdc ports above dash? JDCrow 16 hours ago Well, not sure if this helps. I just finished this up. The 10” Boss deck is single Din floating. It will do 2 cameras. It has 2 USB ports, one for Apple/android voice control. The other port just does charging. the IPad mini is a Gen 5, there is an adapter (Tadi bros? I’d have to look it up) and you can have 4 cameras on in run at the same time. Not sure if you’d have to update all cameras. I kinda torn between adding more cameras or not. Beauty of the iPad is you can take it with you, which I do for off-road maps. Phone and iPad held with RAM mounts This my start, and will add along the way new head lights windsorbill06 15 hours ago I'm considering replacing the hazed over plastic lens head lights. I could try the headlight restorer, but thought I'd research options before I did anything...... I know my headlights are from a Lincoln Navigator, so easy to just replace. But I would like to consider/research the LED route. I've read many threads over the years, with many people on both sides of the debate, that LED bulb replacement doesn't throw the light any further down the road than the standard headlights bulbs. Apparently the housing has a lot to do with how far the light is projected down the road. So I guess the short version of the question, is there a better option to make the LED's throw the light further down the road since I'm considering complete housing replacement? TPMS system amphi_sc 15 hours ago I've used the TST cap sensors on short rubber stems for the toad for 100,000+ miles with no problems other than all the false alarms my TST-507 system gives. (It's a known defect the manufacturer won't fix). Probably doesn't make much difference but the toad's tires were spin balanced with the sensors on (gone thru two sets of tires...). Have a friend with Tire Minder sensors on rubber stemmed toad also with no problems over many years and many miles other than an automatic car wash rotating brush once ripped a rubber stem out of the rim causing immediate flat! So I take mine off when going thru a car wash. Toad Alternative/ Auto Rental windsorbill06 15 hours ago WE had relatives come in town last weekend and they rented a chrysler van to hold 8 and it was nearly $200/day with all the added fees. Wow! Steering pull CMillet86 15 hours ago Finally got a second to take a look at some things, No steering damper. And as of today when I go to move the steering wheel is turning left, where as last time I drove it, was turning right. Going to get it out on some concrete so I can do some better inspections. Tire Pressures are all good and even. Toad Alternative/ Auto Rental Ivylog 15 hours ago Rental companies sold off a bunch of vehicles last year to stay afloat. Supply and demand has raised prices to absurd levels... another consequence of shutting the economy down. 2002 Dip, first MH to cut our teeth on Chargerman 15 hours ago Nice work! It’s coming along great! Ac Filter? Ivylog 15 hours ago Yep, those ceiling decorations may look nice, but cleaning the foam filter is now a 20 minute job. Toad Alternative/ Auto Rental Chargerman 15 hours ago A friend of mine is an Executive at Enterprise. The. Big issue they currently have is that they cannot get new cars because of the chip issue. They are waiting on 200k cars and he doesn’t see it really freeing up before 2022 new head lights JDCrow 15 hours ago You are right on the money, the housing is not designed for LED. Projectors, either for LED or HID are your best bet. Their are companies that will split housings, add projectors and reseal the housings. Not the cheapest, but they are awesome at night. Has anyone added monitors, usb ports, 12 vdc ports above dash? Scotty Hutto 15 hours ago Here’s my current setup, which is still evolving…. Left to right: TireMinder TPMS (running on an old iPhone 6, soon to be replaced), 10” 4:3 Eyoyo monitor - divided into three screens, rear, left, and right cameras. Garmin RV780 GPS unit. Below and to the right, original Weldex screen showing Aladdin engine data full time, and to the off to the right of that (not in picture), Pioneer double-din stereo. All of the dash mounted equipment is using Ram mounts. Most ideas shamelessly stolen from @pwhittle it took some trial and error to get things positioned low enough so they don’t distract from my road vision but also high enough so they don’t cover any dash gauges. Next project is to replace the failing Weldex with an 8” 4:3 Eyoyo monitor and rear camera control switch… Monaco coach value trends Tony G 14 hours ago We've had our 2002 Monaco Windsor for two years now and I am curious if the value of our coach has gone up? After looking around on RV Trader it would see that it has but I think some of you on this site may be closer to the real market. Tire Valve Stems FishAR 14 hours ago I have a tst507 for my fifth wheel with 4 sensors. I'm thinking about buying 4 more and using it on the Monaco. Maybe 8 more and using them on the silverado we're planning on towing. Steer tires I can get them on, no problem. Duals have the braided extensions and I can get them on there. The tag though, the valve stem 90's and faces away and I see no reasonable way to install them. Can that valve come out towards me? I was thinking of asking them to do that when I get tires. Will all this work? Steering pull John Haggard 14 hours ago Did you check your hydraulic fluid? Is it full ? Is it milky white ? Has the hydraulic filter and fluid been flushed, cleaned and replaced. An important part of maintenance many times neglected. Then hose issues Pump issues Hydraulic motor issues can arise. Monaco coach value trends Wrayj1 13 hours ago Tony, we have a 2007 Holiday Rambler Endeavor, which we purchased from the original owner in 2017 with 19,000 miles on it. Values have gone up on used rigs the last couple of years due to dealers selling a lot if new rigs to people with no trade-ins resulting in shortages of used rigs. I have had dealers call me about buying my coach and also emails from large dealers saying they're paying high prices for used rigs. However, IMHO I think they are going to nose dive once some of these newbies find out how much it costs to operate an RV as well as how often things break. This is just my opinion. Monaco coach value trends JDCrow 13 hours ago RV is only worth what someone will pay for it. That said, a lot depends on size and location. Big 40’ wete cheaper than the smaller ones. It took me 6-8 months of looking before I bought mine. I’d like to think it’s up 15k, but I’ll have that into it LOL. Big dealer here in Oregon has billboards across the state offering “top dollar” and there are very few DP out here for sale. Condition is everything as well. BTW, my 02 Dip, Paid 32k sight unseen. Had a buddy go make sure everything worked and it didn’t stink. Wired money and he took it home. Drove 16 hours to get it. I too look for a pull back when people get tired of paying for storage and start calculating actual costs of ownership. It’s now or never to sell if you want out 2002 Dip, first MH to cut our teeth on JDCrow 13 hours ago Thanks, lots of pick up work left. Just soooo very happy wife approves. She was not sold on it but now says it’s very comfortable. Have a Utah trip planned this fall so she must be ok, LOL Has anyone added monitors, usb ports, 12 vdc ports above dash? JDCrow 13 hours ago While I appreciate eyes on the road, your set up would be hard for me. Monaco coach value trends Chuck B 13 hours ago Anything is only worth want someone else is willing to pay for it. The wife has a huge saying as to which coach is purchased. So market the interior to the wife. The site should have a used motorhome check list on it. Chuck B 2004 Windsor Tire Valve Stems Moonwink 13 hours ago I had Wheelmaster SS braided extensions (I bought the "best" or so I thought) on my inner dual tires and they both failed. Before I noticed it the tires deflated and came loose on the rims. I had a heck of time getting them reseated so they'd hold air - it's a good thing I've got 19.5" diameter wheels. With the tires, they only weigh about 100 lbs apiece. I will never use the braided extensions again. The braid is only decorative. The tube inside is fragile and can break without seeing it. I replaced my with Wheelmaster's 2 ply rubber hoses. I think they'll work much better and last a lot longer. If it was me, I'd throw away all of those braided extensions before they have a chance to leak. Has anyone added monitors, usb ports, 12 vdc ports above dash? rpasetto 12 hours ago Covered a piece of plywood and fashioned brackets. Front brackets go to screws of windshield defogger registers; rear brackets to top screws of center console. there's a 3 position 12vDC outlet suspended from each front corner. Laptop runs Street Atlas and VMSpc. If I ever want remove it, dash top remains completely stock.want to I know I need to straighten up the cables, haven't got there yet but it needs to be done. OEM Sharp TV Manuals rpasetto 12 hours ago Going thru some of the old stuff in coach I found two user manuals for Sharp TV's which are long gone. If anyone wants them PM me and I'll send them for cost of postage. Genset Fuel Filter Change rpasetto 12 hours ago Did Genset service this AM on my Onan 12.5 HDCAB. The worst part by far was removing and reinstalling fuel filter. The fuel line coming from the pump is steel, the one to the engine is rubber. How much easier it would be if that steel line was rubber too, like the newer models. Then I could just bring the whole assembly out to change. Has anyone changed that fuel line on a 12.5HDCAA or 12.5HDCAB? Has anyone added monitors, usb ports, 12 vdc ports above dash? JDCrow 11 hours ago You can also take out the 12v lighter sockets and replace.

They were Anzo USA brand headlights. Within one year the coating on each lens started to peel off and it was downhill quickly from there. So I would NOT recommend purchasing ANZO brand ever. Then in 2019 I purchased another set on eBay but this time I specifically looked for the Eagle Eyes Brand based on reviews, etc. I am not disappointed. However, my 2006 Saturn Vue headlights are very hazed over so once I am back to Florida for the winter I plan to take the car to the local Sam's Club and they will restore the headlights for about $40 or so, depends on how bad they determine them to be. Plus they guarantee their work for 5 years. new head lights JDCrow 11 hours ago I spent a fortune ($800) for headlights from Anzo on my Ford. They peeled at 1 year and I was just out of warranty. To bad so sad they said. Here is one company that does custom HID https://www.sickhids.com new head lights windsorbill06 11 hours ago JD, Can you give me the 'pitch hit' crash course on HID vs LED? My experience with HID, is they are slow to come up to brightness. Maybe that's changed now, I don't know. Thanks. new head lights JDCrow 11 hours ago I’m definitely no expert, but like mentioned, just sticking bulbs in stock housing will often not help. I’ve done it and been very unhappy. The actual projectors are inserted or built in. This focuses the beam correctly for the desired pattern. Here is a good video. These guys are way smarter than me https://youtu.be/TAmpVnZD9TI Has anyone added monitors, usb ports, 12 vdc ports above dash? cbr046 10 hours ago Those could work in a variety of places - bedroom, dinette, couch, galley, etc. There's a version with a built in voltmeter, too. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08PTZ17NS/ref=wl_mb_wl_huc_mrai_3_dp - bob Has anyone added monitors, usb ports, 12 vdc ports above dash? JDCrow 10 hours ago Yeah I added some on our bedroom for phone plug in new head lights cbr046 10 hours ago I had HID's on the old Fleetwood gasser (F53 Ford F150 headlight shell). Yes, it took maybe 30 sec for them to warm up to full brightness. That's acceptable. But HID's in a standard housing spit light everywhere. Trees, ditches, road signs 1/2 mile away. In 80,000 miles driving the gasser, much of it at night, I'd only been "flashed" twice. They did light up the road nicely and I could pick out things like road gators at 65 mph before running over them. The HR came with Lincoln LS TYC LED headlights. Very sharp cutoff. Low beams are good out to about 50 ft. Hi beams are the bomb but can only be used on roads without traffic. I'm working on them for best long distance without blinding people (now maybe 150 ft out), but has to be done in a flat dark area with lots of distance. It's on my to-do list. The LED pattern has dark spots in it. I still do ~ 30% driving at night, 10k - 15k mi / yr total. Right now I just pray there's nothing in my path at night. I might look into projectors but # 1 don't want to modify the existing shell and # 2 not real keen drilling extra holes. The fog lights are oval in shape and worse than useless. Having a spot or projector in those holes would be ideal. I had HIDs on my motorcycle. One morning about 5am I had a car, dead with no lights *IN* the lane, on dark interstate at 70 mph. It's quite possible those HIDs saved my life. - bob new head lights JDCrow 9 hours ago Just need an oven and a butter knife LOL Ac Filter? Poohbear 8 hours ago Ok I’ll have to look into it a little more . I tried but couldn’t figure it out. Thanks all Rear AC compressor turns on then off quickly Steven P 8 hours ago Hey all, for a couple of years I've had an issue w my rear Dometic Duotherm AC. Symptoms: mainly I notice this in the mornings, but I think it happens more than that. The compressor will start and sometimes it may run 3 seconds up to 30 seconds and kick off. Other times it'll do just fine. I discovered this weekend that it does NOT do this on generator. It only does it on 50A and it happens no matter where I'm plugged into. I have replaced both the hard start and the run capacitors with no change. This past week I put in a Soft Start and while it does start up softer, it will still kick off like before. I have also killed all power to the coach for minutes and reset the thermostat all with no change. @Scotty Hutto and I feel this may be related to the Intellitec system. I do not see any lights showing shedding when this happens and the fan will still run, only the compressor stops. Has anyone been through this? Found a solution? It will keep the bedroom cool so its not a huge deal, but it wakes me in the AMs and is a nagging issue to me. Clearance lights stillrunning_60@hotmail.com 8 hours ago Replaced the cab and side clearance lights (T.Bargman 59) on my 02 windsor with LED’s and now how all the old lights to give away if someone would like to have them for postage. One of the side lights I had converted to LED. Rear AC compressor turns on then off quickly jacwjames 8 hours ago To eliminate the EMS Intellitec system swap the wires from the breakers (or on the EMS board) and see if the front starts to kick out. Monaco coach value trends Ivylog 8 hours ago Yes, people are asking more $$ than what they paid and used asking prices are up probably 20% for the big Monaco DPs, but asking and getting are two different things. I see listings for 08 Navigators from way more to slightly less than what I paid 3 years ago for ours... $165K. Helped our daughter buy a nice 06 Navigator 45’ for $110K... most are $30K+ or more. Deals are out there but you have to act fast. Saw a 07 Navigator for $200K... good luck. Rear AC compressor turns on then off quickly Ivylog 7 hours ago Welcome to the club...same problem. Moving the remote temperature sensor probe so it’s not touching anything helped mine although it occasionally still short cycles. The Tstat is 12V so you have to pull a fuse to power it down... in a black plastic container often in the bathroom or next to the circuit breaker panels. Has anyone added monitors, usb ports, 12 vdc ports above dash? woodylmiller 7 hours ago Thanks guys. We all seem to be on the same page. I have ordered/recv'd those usb/12 vdc ports, 4 each. Haven't pulled the trigger on the new monitor/camera yet. Currently making a cardboard mockup to get the approval from my co-pilot and DW. The profile of the monitor has me stumped for the moment, like Scotty said, low enough to see over, but up enough to see the guages. Thanks. Woody Miller 09 Dynasty Regal IV new head lights Joel & Susanna 7 hours ago The original housings are designed to the focal point of the bulb element. Engineering in some other light source that does not match the exact geometry of the original bulb may or most likely will not produce what you desire. Our pusher has the large Par56 round sealed beam incandescent headlights, similar to what you see on older Jeeps. I changed these to multiple led assemblies with integrated running, turn, high and low beam. They look nice, fancy is a better description, but I still installed additional driving lights to be compatible with the average lighting system on today’s vehicles. Good luck Fuel Injector Priming Pump and Water Separator Assembly CRY1942 7 hours ago Excellent write up ! Thanks for sharing. Serpentine Belt part# for Cummins 400ISL? Admirial RVr 7 hours ago I have an 2006 Dip with ISL 400 same as yours. I changed my serp belt and tensioner . Not really that difficult.. I did have a helper. The Cummins part numbers that Roy gave you are what I installed. My biggest issue was getting the belt. I live in south central Florida and none of the dealers had a belt available in FL and they wanted $33.00 just for shipping. If you want original parts from Cummins check for close by dealers that you can drive to. I did find a Cummins parts distributor in Boca Raton, FL, they orderd the belt for me and shipping was $9.95. Took 3 weeks to get it. cummins.dieselengines.parts new head lights Ivan K 6 hours ago We have classic Hella round headlights with glass lenses. No fading that way. Thankful for that. Years ago I found LED bulbs with adjustable depth and rotation which let me match the preexisting pattern exactly. Marked the original shape on a white sheet up front and adjusted accordingly. I should have bought spares because I don't see these exact same ones for sale anymore. Hopefully they last because I don't use them that much but sometimes we run out of daylight and then they make an artificial day in front of me. 12.000 lumens of it. The ability to move the bulbs in-out and rotate them is a key in simulating the old bulb. Rear AC compressor turns on then off quickly Chuck B 5 hours ago I had the same issue. The compressor is drawing the maximum amps or more to start and run. A clamp on amp meter will measure the amps it is drawing. I had to replace the whole unit. Chuck B 2004 Windsor Monaco coach value trends stacyhall 4 hours ago we just purchased our 2006 Camelot 42dsq, they were asking over retail but they (dealer) were having a hard time selling it because it was over 100k and everyone wanting it needed to finance it and their loans were requiring 30% or more down which all didn't have, we paid cash and got it below retail. Sat for 2 months on their lot, they had it under contract 5 times before we came along with cash.....so if you can find a cash buyer or one with lots of $$'s down you can get what ever your ask is. We sold our 2001 National Dolphin (gasser) for 14k over NADA, but it was a cash buyer and we had done a ton to it and it was mint, keep in mind this one was $28k so easier to get that kind of cash buyer vs $100k or more cash buyer new head lights Dennis H 3 hours ago RVrs travel at NIGHT? Why?...asking for a friend..😉...Dennis new head lights JDCrow 3 hours ago LOL I’m trying to wrap my brain around 4-6 hours travel a day. Last trip in the truck- 18 straight home to Havasu for vacation. Wife still doesn’t know how I did it. new head lights cbr046 1 hour ago #1 - I like to get home ASAP #2 - I don't like driving in Atlanta during the day . . . . and I live in the Atlanta burbs! #3 - There's less traffic at night. And less crazy people. Also the winds die down at night. That said the HR is MUCH better than the Fleetwood in windy conditions. #4 - Dash AC doesn't keep up with daytime heating. OTOH I travel year round, and it gets cold too. Typical scenario is to pull out on Friday or early Saturday. If driving through ATL it's a 5 - 5:30 departure before the morning commute builds. Chill out at camp site (cow pasture) with 300 - 900 of my best friends on Saturday. Race on Sunday. Leave race anywhere between 3pm - 6pm. If I get tired I'll stop. Arriving at 1am is typical and 3am isn't unusual but I've been known to drive until daylight the next day. Rest areas aren't the best security, and they fill up early. Truck stops are ok but they fill up early too, and it's tough backing up a 10 ft trailer with a 39 ft tow vehicle between two 18 wheelers in the dark. I've had my fill of Wally World, way too noisy if they're open 24 hrs. Worst part is I don't have a job to get to on Monday. Just something about home. - bob To unsubscribe *|member_name|* click here:https://www.monacoers.org/settings/?area=newsletters We welcome your comments and suggestions for our newsletter.

  13. Here’s my current setup, which is still evolving…. Left to right: TireMinder TPMS (running on an old iPhone 6, soon to be replaced), 10” 4:3 Eyoyo monitor - divided into three screens, rear, left, and right cameras. Garmin RV780 GPS unit. Below and to the right, original Weldex screen showing Aladdin engine data full time, and to the off to the right of that (not in picture), Pioneer double-din stereo. All of the dash mounted equipment is using Ram mounts. Most ideas shamelessly stolen from @pwhittle it took some trial and error to get things positioned low enough so they don’t distract from my road vision but also high enough so they don’t cover any dash gauges. Next project is to replace the failing Weldex with an 8” 4:3 Eyoyo monitor and rear camera control switch…

Scotty Hutto 16 hours ago Bob, We typically have 40-50 coaches, and currently have 40 slots on hold with Lazydays. We typically use all of the slots reserved at some point in early fall, and depending on what LazyDays has might be able to pick up a handful more, but that could be different this year due to the pandemic. Based on the level of interest I’ve experienced so far, I think our allocation of slots will be used up pretty quickly. As far as a maximum, I’ll have to defer to @David Pratt But in the end, all of that is a guess based on experience. Bill D's Monacoers' Gathering Update!!

Serpentine Belt part# for Cummins 400ISL? Chuck B 14 hours ago I suggest you bite the bullet and take your coach to a "Cummins Authorize Distributor Shop" and let them do the work. They will be able to provide you with the serial number of your engine and the associated parts numbers. Since you have a Dip with the rear radiator, unless you are physically fit to install the belt and and tensioner, they will do it for you. While there, they can perform any engine software update if you need it. Chuck B 2004 Windsor Serpentine Belt part# for Cummins 400ISL?

Not the cheapest by any means but the decesion I had to make when deciding which brand was considering their reputation and reviews on this site no bad reviews.I felt it was one of those things where you got the peace of mind and protection you(I) was seeking!

RNMCBR 12 hours ago Gary, Your coach is the same as mine. Your belt is Gates: K080830HD , or Cummins: 3972263. Your tensioner is Cummins: 3950-01-503-4617, p/n 3976831. It will cross to aftermarket if you desire. Belt replacement is not that hard but you will probably get your arms dirty. You will need a long (2’) ratchet, breaker bar, or belt change tool to release tension while you slip the belt off the tensioner, and also to put it back on. Just take note of the routing. You will have to route most of the belt from above. Especially as you thread the belt around the fan blades. You will probably want to remove the engine cover rear extension in the closet. You can unscrew the closet door rail and twist the rail out without taking out the closet doors. But the doors come out pretty easily. I cut a bevel on the back side of my rail to allow the engine cover to come out without removing the rail. Just takes time and patience. Would be nice to have a helper but I never do. I’ts a good skill to have in case you throw a belt on the road. good luck! Roy Battery wire unidentifiable TigerMar 12 hours ago Hi all, Wondering if anyone has seen a connection like this before? Changing out house batteries and I discovered this in the battery bay after removing old batteries. Was not attached to batteries as far as I could tell. thanks for any help Battery wire unidentifiable Harvey Babb 12 hours ago Looks like the temperature sensor for the charger/inverter. They are usually attached to the battery to measure its temperature. The best charge voltage is dependent on temperature and this is the best way to get it right. Mine is a block with tapered ends that sticks to the battery with double sided foam tape. Anything to keep it in contact with the side of the battery case is OK.

I do know the cost of power surges. paulb 2008 Monaco Knight chassis Gary M 12 hours ago A quick search online tells me Navistar thought about it but it wasn’t until REV took over that they partnered with Freightliner Custom Chassis, a Daimler company and the parent company to Mercedes Benz to build its own Freightliner Chassis. Battery wire unidentifiable TigerMar 11 hours ago Hi Harvey, I thought that at first, but I have a magnum inverter that has a separate temp sensor which connects to one of the battery posts. thanks gary 2008 Monaco Knight chassis vito.a 11 hours ago Many RV folks mistakenly think of Freightliner as high end when actually it's low to medium price point at best. I personally would not want to own a motor home on a Freightliner chassis. Way back when, Monaco purchased the original Roadmaster chassis design from Chrysler Corp (before they became an MB subsidiary). Chrysler was developing a heavy military chassis design with two air bags per wheel. Battery wire unidentifiable vito.a 11 hours ago It could be a temp sensor for the Heliotrope solar charger. Surge protectors SkyKingII 11 hours ago Paul, You are welcome!You won't regret the purchase.I did the portable you plug into post when I decided to purchase I was getting ready for extended trip and did not have time to put hard wired unit in and this filled the bill so to speak. They both do same thing you just have to separately plug it to the post then your power cord to bus. Bruce Crocker 04Diplomat40'PDQ Surge protectors Moonwink 11 hours ago My tale of woe -> A few years ago without doing any research, I purchased Camco's Power Defender. It worked great for a couple of years but it rained almost everyday while camped in Dessert Hot Springs about 3 years ago and the unit's seals failed miserably allowing almost a 1/2 cup of water inside. The next time I went to use it, it sounded like a buzz saw. I opened it up and all that water poured out! The electronics are fried. I email Camco asking where to send the thing to be serviced and was told there was no service available. I'm sorry but something this expensive (over $250) should be serviceable in my opinion. The unit was never submersed in water but hung on the MH out in the rain. The seals should have prevented this. You live and learn and sometimes get to pass on your knowledge to help other avoid the same mistake. Steer clear of this boat anchor and go with one from a company that will stand behind it's products. 1997 Monaco Dynasty with Cummins 8.3 A/C Compressor Motor jmcnamer 10 hours ago My AC motor seized up in my coach. I called Cummins and they could not tell me what compressor motor I had on my engine. Would anyone know what replacement motor I need and the best place to get it? The Cummins dealer said it "might" be a Sanden. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks, Jody 1997 Monaco Dynasty with Cummins 8.3 A/C Compressor Motor John Haggard 10 hours ago There was a tag in mine. I took a picture and NAPA got me a replacement. It cross referenced with one used on a peterbuilt truck from the same Era. It was the exact same pump. Battery wire unidentifiable Darren A. 10 hours ago I agree with the group, appears to be some sort of temp sensor. 1997 Monaco Dynasty with Cummins 8.3 A/C Compressor Motor jmcnamer 10 hours ago I'll see if mine has one. Do you remember where the tag was located on the pump? I looked yesterday but could not find one.

Bill D's Monacoers' Gathering Update!! David Pratt 10 hours ago When Lazydays announces that will begin taken reservation for the Gathering, my suggestion is that anyone that is contemplating coming to the 2022 Gathering should make your reservation ASAP. All of the information is in the Flyer, Follow the instructions as written. The cancellation policy is in the instructions and I will insert it here; Cancellation Policy: All reservations may be cancelled with no penalty until one (1) month prior to your arrival date. Reservations cancelled less than one (1) month prior will incur a 50% penalty. For no calls or no shows, no refund will be given. As Scotty said in a prior post, Based on the level of interest I’ve experienced so far, I think our allocation of slots will be used up pretty quickly. So get your reservation in early and if you need to cancel just follow the cancellation policy. I have 40 sites blocked for the 2022 Gathering and Lazydays will only have other sites available only if they are not booked up, but you may not be parked with the group if you are not in the initial 40 sites.

Fuel Injector Priming Pump and Water Separator Assembly rpasetto 9 hours ago Finally completed the install of my 790R30. Thanks to Paul Whittle for suggesting the shutoff valves. I was still uncomfortable with the idea of using the 3/8 fittings with 1/2ID hose so they were replaced with 1/2" barb to 1/2" JIC. The trick was to get the barb fitting into this plastic-nylon-?? fuel hose. Could the 3/8" be too much of a restriction? Would it wait to remind me when I climb the first big hill? What the heck, it should be possible to press those fittings into that ?? hose. It was tough, a project in itself figuring out how to get the 1/2" barb into this 1'2" ID hose. I used the clamp as a 'backup"' just in case... figured it couldn't hurt. I still don't know what the hose is made of but after some research and delays on other things I came up with a solution...

Intellitec 73-00824-001 Control Board Rob M cKeown 9 hours ago Does anyone out there have an unwanted Control Board Intellitec # 73-00824-001 that controls the Big Boy Relay, 12V Kill Switch and the Battery Boost Switch. I have a glitch with the board on my 2003 Signature with the Cummins 525 ISX. M&M can rebuild them but it is a 7 business day turnaround. I am also checking with Visone as well. Rob McKeown 2003 Signature Fuel Injector Priming Pump and Water Separator Assembly rpasetto 9 hours ago So anyway if anyone has this type of fuel hose, there's a way. I spent some time looking for re-usable JIC fittings and learned there are fittings for all sorts of hose types rubber and silicone wire impregnated and otherwise... not for this hose. I carried my sample around... no luck. Thinking about the original fittings somehow got pressed into that fuel hose ... there had to be a way. So I started a search for tools to do it; learned a lot. There are plenty of such tools, the least costly one I found was a $300 one with variations and add-on adapters to handle various size hose and fitting combinations but I figured without part numbers and still learning all the designations of hose and fittings it would take me some few hundred north of that and a lot of time anyway. Right about then I realized how nice it would be to have a machine shop and know how to use it... no chance there. So I went to the woodshop. The device below is made of wood, bolts, threaded rod and nuts, all stuff found at Lowes and Home Depot. It clamps on the the hose and pushes it on to the fitting. Test setup shown below. The green arrows indicate nuts used to clamp down on the hose. The yellow hose is a cutoff used for testing the "press". In actual use, the hose is wrapped with double layer of electrical tape for protection before going inside the clamp. (had that piece since the old hose needed to be shortened a bit). The red arrows indicate the locked nuts used to "wrench" down the hose over the barb once it's clamped in place. I actually used a drill to do some of the bolt turning once the hose was started on the barb. The brass fitting (orange arrow) is just a test part, not the 1/2 barb to JIC one. Thanks to the DW for helping; this was a two person job; much trickier than it looks, working in the tight quarters of the engine compartment. So if any of you all have this kind of hose and run into a situation where you need to press fittings on, give a holler; maybe I can help. 1997 Monaco Dynasty with Cummins 8.3 A/C Compressor Motor waterskier_1 8 hours ago I ordered mine from AutoAirOnline.com.

Monaco built their own chassis. The 08 Knight was built on a RR8 chassis with 8 air bags. The 2000 to 2000 Knights had the 4 bag chassis. As said by others REV gets their chassis from Frieghtliner. On high end coaches they just buy the front and rear sections and install a bridge center section.

I have 10 bags and the 2 in the middle at the back looked a little strange, even malformed at the bottom so I used the leveling control panel to add air to the back and road side and the air bags inflated fine and everything looked normal. Anyone know what might be going on here? Thanks Mike B 01 Dynasty with tag axle 400 ISL No Start 2007 Monaco Camelot FishAR 4 hours ago Well I got the 8.9 started and it ran like a top. Let it run for about 2 hours. Restarted it twice in that time just because I shut it off to do other things. Left the key on longer than 30 seconds this time and instead of the clicking sound I'd been hearing I heard a whirring sound of something spinning so I went back in and it fired right up. Now on to the generator. Air bags on rear road side slow to inflate Frank Bergamo 4 hours ago Mike, the leveling valves may need adjusting. Also, there are rubber grommets that connect the leveling rods that may be failing. There are two different kinds, you need to identify what kind you have. Use extreme caution if you get under coach. Make sure you block coach up so it does not come down on you. If not comfortable working under coach, take it to a professional. Hope this helps. Battery wire unidentifiable TigerMar 56 minutes ago Thank you all for your input. It is the battery temperature sensor for the solar. It’s a Heliotrope Controller sensor as Keven said. I looked up the wiring diagram for the controller and it is put between two batteries to get a temp. Again, thanks!

  16. Bob, We typically have 40-50 coaches, and currently have 40 slots on hold with Lazydays. We typically use all of the slots reserved at some point in early fall, and depending on what LazyDays has might be able to pick up a handful more, but that could be different this year due to the pandemic. Based on the level of interest I’ve experienced so far, I think our allocation of slots will be used up pretty quickly. As far as a maximum, I’ll have to defer to @David Pratt But in the end, all of that is a guess based on experience.

Any hints? Bob Nodine 21 hours ago John, I am not sure you are fully comprehending what Van is trying to get across to you. The TRW has a high spot on the gear that is connected to the steering wheel and when you adjust the TRW that high spot must correspond with the wheels being pointed straight ahead. When you move the steering wheel left or right the gear moves off of that high spot and there is slop in the steering by design. You do not notice it because you are applying force since you are in a turn. When you move the steering wheel back straight again you should be back on that high spot with zero dead motion in the steering. A common mistake is folks replace the Shepard with a TRW and do not adjust the length of the drag link to reattach it to the Pitman arm. They move the steering wheel to get the drag link back on and that means when the wheels of the coach are pointing straight ahead you are no longer on the high spot of the TRW and will have dead motion in the steering. Ask me how I know this🙂. I suspect there is nothing wrong with your TRW and you do not need to replace it. You just need to make sure the mark on the output spline shaft is aligned with the mark on the body of the TRW. You must have the drag link disconnected when you do this and the wheels must be pointing straight ahead. Then you adjust the TRW. Next you must be careful not to move the steering wheel or the front wheels and if the drag link does not align with the Pitman arm you must adjust the tie rod end on the drag-link. Residential fridge with furnace below Ivylog 20 hours ago Third picture is of the refrigerator you need to seriously considering using as it’s only an inch too high, actually only a 3/4 inch. Fortunately Executive rotated some of my pictures which saved them. I previously posted: DW wanted the large drawer saved under our NoCold in our 04 Dynasty. Hoped the 65” tall 21 Whirlpool would fit but had to lower the floor 1”. Link to my DIY install: https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/28435086/print/true.cfm First picture is with the floor cut out and supports around the perimeter an inch lower. Second picture is with the foam insulation installed, sealing off the area from the drawer below. The hardest part was taking an inch off of the front cross piece. Did most of it with a 7 inch Skill saw BUT, would not recommend doing it that way as it’s easy for the Skill saw to get away from you if you’re not careful. Residential fridge with furnace below Dr4Film 18 hours ago Stay away from Aqua-Hot and Hydro Hot. I highly recommend an Espar Diesel Heating System for RV's. A friend of mine in Washington State has installed two, one in his 03 Diplomat (now gone) and one in his current 02 HR Sceptre. Residential fridge with furnace below Ivylog 17 hours ago I’ll help take this refrigerator discussion further off track... I love my AquaHot.😎 400 ISL No Start 2007 Monaco Camelot MHRookie 17 hours ago I’m not a fan of using the key on to fill the filters BUT, in this case it will tell you if the lift pump is working or not. As was also mentioned for the generator... storing that long requires priming before trying to start. Manual says to depress the STOP toggle the opposite direction for at least 30 seconds before trying to start. Also separate issue from fuel... make sure the rear run switch didn’t get bumped to the “rear” position (for the Cummins). good luck, I hope it’s something simple. Make sure and let us know. It’s always good to hear others issues for future troubleshooting. Kurt stop engine light comes on D.Ellison 17 hours ago i hope it doesnt lead to that but its defiantly something to keep in mind ,i serviced it this spring after this problem started with no change Residential fridge with furnace below jacwjames 16 hours ago Been following this thread, not sure if it is the same topic/poster as on IRV2 but I posted a link to my Samsung install. https://www.irv2.com/forums/f115/samsung-install-finally-done-461001.html I decided to do something different and not have a shelf at all, I used heavy conduit struts, they make HEAVY 90 degree angle and bolts to tie pieces together https://www.lowes.com/pd/Superstrut-1-5-8-in-x-1-5-8-in-Gold-Galvanized-Half-Slot-Channel-Strut/1000182121 I made two separate stands approximately the height I thought would work, secured them to the floor on either side of the furnace using the distance of the wheels on the refrigerator. I had made a dolly to help remove the Norcold refrigerator and made this the height to test fit the Samsung I bought. I ended up having to remove the two strut built supports and cutting them down an extra ~1/2" to be able to slide the fridge in, leaving me with ~1/4" to spare. That was the benefit of making 2 separate legs, easy to modify. After I made sure the fridge would fit I was able to secure them from moving by blocking the back and in the front I attached extra pieces of wood salvaged from the frame around the fridge to the same width of the legs and screwing to them. I reinforced this with extra wood on the back side not visible from the front. In the end I cold stand on the legs and they did not move at all. I added blocking to the back and sides to prevent the fridge from moving and to help guide it into place. Note that the rear wheels and front wheels are not aligned, the front is slightly wider so I aligned my legs to the rear which made it easier to slide the fridge in. On the front the wheels barely hit the legs but the weight is actually supported with on the heavy brackets attached to the leveling support bracket. I then attached angle piece to the sides of the fridge used the heavy selfadhesive tape and screwing into the side frame of the fridge, painted black you can hardly see. I was able to used heavy brackets modified and attached them to the lever brackets on bottom of the fridge and then screwing into the added blocking at the bottom. The bottom of the fridge sits almost on top of the furnace. The front that originally had a lourvered vent for the furnace was modified using the same stile/rail from but I just attached wire mesh screen to allow for better air flow. Not sure why the one picture is upside down but it shows how close the fridge it so the furnace. Th stop engine light comes on jacwjames 15 hours ago When I first bought our coach I was changing the fuel filters and there was heavy layer of black slime almost clogging the primary filters, CRAP I've got Algae!! I had not noticed any power or performance issues. I did some research and started to used both Biobor and Startron enzyme treatment. When I store the coach for a long period I fill the tank full (up to the filler neck dribbling out) and then add both of the above >>> leave it and forget it. Never had a problem after that. Our last long trip was late 2015 and after that I was up to my neck in building a new house. Last year (YES, +5 years later) I started siphoning fuel out of the tank using it in my tractor, never saw any signs of algae. Then late last year I filled my tank with 85 gallons of fuel drove it ~75 miles without a problem. Finally took it last week on a trip and it did great.

I found that switching the ignition around it would start to work. Now only Manual works. I had never seen a Operating/Service Manual before and was not aware of the holding of the power switch for reset. My question is if I do that and it works, do I now have to recalibrate everything. Or does the memory hold? Thanks Surge protectors Paul Busch 15 hours ago Doe any one have a recommendation for a 50amp surge protector? I have a basic one now and started full timing and think I should up grade. paulb Surge protectors JDCrow 14 hours ago I have the progressive in my 5vr, hardwired with the readout inside. It’s trustworthy. Just put Hughes Watchdog in my coach. It works fine as well. It’s also hardwired and has Bluetooth so you can see the info on your phone. Ones made in Mexico, the other in China Surge protectors ncsteve 14 hours ago I just installed a Progressive Industries EMS-LCHW50 on my coach. I also had one in my other one as well. It is hard wired in cord bay so don’t have to worry about someone stealing it or mess with locking it. It checks voltages, grounds, open neutral, over under voltage as well as other things prior to engaging voltage and gives you constant digital readout as well. Not sure you can beat the Amazon pricing either if $267 shipped.

My only issue is the LED above the MANUAL button does not light. No big deal. 400 ISL No Start 2007 Monaco Camelot cpat_39 14 hours ago A friend with 2004-05 Windsor had similar issues. His fuel pickup in fuel tank had corroded and was too short to pick up fuel for engine. As I remember they had to pull tank out of coach to pull and replace fuel pickup. Pat C Surge protectors Scotty Hutto 14 hours ago Progressive Industries, Hughes, and SurgeGuard are all popular, reputable brands, although a strong majority on this site prefer the Progressive Industries EMS-HW-50C based on the experience of our members over the years that this group has been around - both on Yahoo! Groups and now here. It's a very robust unit with great customer service and a good warranty. I believe @Tom Cherry has an excellent write-up on the installation (possibly in the files section?) Here's the installation I did myself in my coach using Tom's guidance: Progressive Industries EMS-HW-50C installed with display and display switch in electrical bay. (Note: Display and Display Switch are held on transfer switch with velcro in case I need to remove them.) PI EMS-RDS remote installed on my indoor display panel. Surge protectors ncsteve 14 hours ago I installed mine as well. Surge protectors JDCrow 14 hours ago That’s the unit in my 5vr, easy to wire and as well. It has a great rep on 5ver sites as well. You can’t go wrong with it. I just wanted the blue tooth side of the Hughes as I love the VictronConnect in my 5ver and will be adding it to coach. So it’s just a techie thing. If you are not into the Bluetooth, I’d go with the progressive Surge protectors Scotty Hutto 14 hours ago Since I have a "connected coach" I would love to have a Bluetooth unit! ...but alas, I installed this almost 4 years ago before I started adding all the connected gadgets. Not auto leveling with a Valid air system 96 EVO 14 hours ago You should be fine. Like I mentioned, mine is failing. The only way I can power it down is hold the power button for the 10sec till it beeps. Done this many times now, and never had to recalibrate anything. Cab AC Donflem 13 hours ago I was wondering if anybody knew if there was supposed to be a cover on the air intake for the cab AC on my 2007 dynasty P4? If I’m driving on dirt and my generator is on I get a cloud of dust coming into my cab AC vents. I was just wondering if anybody knew if there should be a cover on this intake?

Not auto leveling with a Valid air system willbo777 12 hours ago Ditto on the reset, shouldn't have to do anything, the memory stays. Residential fridge with furnace below Dr4Film 12 hours ago Espar is smaller with higher BTU's, easier to maintain and far less expensive than the Webasto. Aqua-Hot uses the Webasto and I have one. The original Aqua-Hot failed at just over 4 years of service. Had to have a rebuilt Aqua-Hot installed (very expensive) which has lasted 15 years now but not without expensive problems and repairs. The control box alone is a $900 item and you get pretty tired shelling out that kind over and over again. Can't tell you how many control boxes I have had to buy over the 17 years of owning the coach. Luckily I just bought 2 from a vendor in Europe for less than one here in the states and with free shipping. They started out with silver control boxes, then switched to Solid State black boxes and now they have an entirely different type of control box that I have never seen before on the Aqua-Hot web site. Have no idea how good it is. Residential fridge with furnace below JDCrow 11 hours ago Awesome thanks for the insight Cab AC Chargerman 11 hours ago There is not a cover.

The plastic bezel around the control panel is all broken in pieces, the selector buttons are broke/fell out and the open button mounting point is broken off. I've googled, searched ebay and called Vison RV salvage for the part and I'm not having any luck. Does anyone have any resources or ideas for finding the part? As a last resort I could replace the unit with a Sharp R1874T for 600 from amazon but I really don't want to spend that much to solve what seems to be a simple problem.

Numerous Tire Mfg. Inflation Charts Paul A. 8 hours ago Thought some one may want to view this . Rather handy. https://rvsafety.com/weighing/tire-inflation-tables Surge protectors StephenW 7 hours ago I also installed the same Progressive Industries unit as Scotty H. using advice found on this forum and the instructions with the device. The install is not that difficult with the hardest part being getting access. On my first trip after installing it the first place I plugged in had the neutral and hot wires switched and the surge protector showed an error code and did not let power pass to the coach. Very thankful for the advice on this forum and would recommend a top quality hardwired surge protector be installed in all RV's! Residential fridge with furnace below Batmobile 6 hours ago Yes, that was me in the other forum too. Posted there before I discovered this group dedicated to Monaco owners. Thanks for sharing your installs. I've studied several posts and don't know why we don't have as much room but we'll be back in the coach this evening with our thinking caps on...and I'll be checking to make sure my DH's tape measure isn't defective! 🤣 Total floor to ceiling is 77 3/4", furnace is 7" so we should have enough space for the 67 1/2" Fisher-Pakel. The furnace is going to be the tricky part as we have to have it as high as possible due to the exhaust. Residential fridge with furnace below Scotty Hutto 6 hours ago please take pictures and document as much as possible! Surge protectors Paul Busch 3 hours ago Thanks guys. I think I will go with the progressive unit and make a run at hard wiring it myself. Thanks again for the help. paulb Sharp Carousel R-1850a convection microwave Gary M 2 hours ago is this it? https://www.ebay.com/itm/SHARP-MICROWAVE-PANEL-PART-FPNLCB215MRKO-/382787585447?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286 Sharp Carousel R-1850a convection microwave JDCrow 2 hours ago Similar, but it’s missing the door open button and the other buttons on the bottom Replace air conditioners? dennis.mcdonaugh 48 minutes ago I replaced the front Penguin 13.5K AC/Heat Pump in 2016 with a Penguin II High Capacity unit and the rear unit in 2021. Both units are quieter than their predecessors, but I still wouldn't call them quiet. I may have actually made a mistake by buying a high capacity unit for the rear because I get condensation on the first two vents when its really humid. The unit puts out a lot of really cold air. I wasn't willing to throw money at a 16 year old unit. Slide sweeps dennis.mcdonaugh 45 minutes ago I called REV Parts and they not only supplied the part numbers for two of the front door seals, they were able to provide me with the original seals. Its worth a shot to give them a call. I was surprised by how response they were. https://parts.revgroup.com/store New Photos Scotty Hutto 8 hours ago 0 comments To unsubscribe *|member_name|* click here:https://www.monacoers.org/settings/?area=newsletters We welcome your comments and suggestions for our newsletter.

  20. Since I have a "connected coach" I would love to have a Bluetooth unit! ...but alas, I installed this almost 4 years ago before I started adding all the connected gadgets.
  21. Progressive Industries, Hughes, and SurgeGuard are all popular, reputable brands, although a strong majority on this site prefer the Progressive Industries EMS-HW-50C based on the experience of our members over the years that this group has been around - both on Yahoo! Groups and now here. It's a very robust unit with great customer service and a good warranty. I believe @Tom Cherry has an excellent write-up on the installation (possibly in the files section?) Here's the installation I did myself in my coach using Tom's guidance: Progressive Industries EMS-HW-50C installed with display and display switch in electrical bay. (Note: Display and Display Switch are held on transfer switch with velcro in case I need to remove them.) PI EMS-RDS remote installed on my indoor display panel.
