  1. Walter, on my ‘02 Monaco Beaver, there was an ignition solenoid in the front run bay that is prone to failure. It is a continuous duty 85 amp Cole Hersee part # 24059. https://www.amazon.com/Cole-Hersee-24059-Insulated-Continuous/dp/B000Y82X4E/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&gclid=EAIaIQobChMImPOUzZ2X7wIV9iCtBh1gggaAEAAYAiAAEgK9gvD_BwE&hvadid=153669387986&hvdev=c&hvlocphy=9029184&hvnetw=g&hvqmt=e&hvrand=15534776271438728711&hvtargid=kwd-54404101170&hydadcr=5710_9180210&keywords=cole+hersee+24059&qid=1614881330&sr=8-3 Same symptoms that you describe. Ho
  2. Turn off power to coach for a few minutes. That might reset it. Hope this helps.
  3. Eddie, if it holds at 0 and 34 you should be good to go. Give it a little time to bottom out. Also, get in, get out of fridge quickly. It takes time to recover if door is wide open for an extended period of time. Hope this helps.
  4. The diagram above does not show Signature listed in the models the FDCA module was used on. Some of the higher end coach’s did not use the electronic modules. If he has the FDCA setup, then the Source Engineering setup would be the way to go to convert system to hydraulic controlled. If no FDCA module, then the thermo/wax valve replacement is an easy swap out. I bought my replacement thermo/wax valve from Whitehouse Products in the UK for less than half the price of the suppliers in the USA. Shipping very reasonable, received in 5 or 6 days. Hope this helps.
  5. It is called a thermo/wax valve. https://www.whitehouseproductsltd.com/products/hydraulic-motors/hyd-gear-motors-fan-valves/dynamatic-fan-drive-motors-valves/553-1-09857-210-thermo On my 07 Marquis it is screwed into radiator inside engine compartment. I have also seen them screwed into metal water transfer tube connecting radiator to engine block. Hope this helps.
  6. Eddie, If it were mine, I would not run it on electric or propane if it was not close to level. JMO. Hope this helps.
  7. Eddie, is the thermometer in the fridge or freezer? 32 degrees is great for the fridge side, 10 or below for the freezer. Also, it is critical that the coach is level or as close to level for the unit to work properly. If it is not level you can damage the heating coils requiring replacement of the coils. Hope this helps.
  8. Eddie, on the Norcold there is no blower, just the sound of the burner operating. Takes roughly 24 hours or longer depending on outside air temperature to cool down. Keep at it, you will figure it out. Hope this helps.
  9. Eddie, check to see that the circuit breakers for the inverter are on. These will be located in the AC circuit panels in the coach. I believe also that there is an on/off switch on the inverter, make sure this is on also. Your battery cutoff switch should be on, I would turn it back on. As far as hooking up the new batteries correctly, that is definitely a possibility that something was overlooked when installing. Hope this helps.
  10. John, when I replaced my gas struts on the engine bay door I had to get a bar clamp to compress them slightly so they would engage the ends. Also, you should have two stops on the door assembly that you can shorten to allow door to lift to its maximum travel distance, giving you a little more distance between the mounting studs. Fairly challenging project, but if you take your time it is doable. An extra hand helps also. Hope this helps.
  11. Just replaced all my marker lights with this company. https://www.kaperii.com/led-clearance-and-marker-lamps Great customer service and an exact match. L14 0026A and L14 0026R. Hope this helps.
  12. Any place out west that can make a copy of the CPU Multiplex system? I am in Tucson currently. Live in Colorado. Thanks!!
  13. If you knew that your aux compressor was shot, then yes, you could start the engine to air up system to relevel coach. As Ivan said above, once level, turn off Valid remote, then aux compressor will not come on. I always make sure to turn off remote when leaving coach for a period of time so aux compressor will not activate while away. On my coach, I have also wired a switch from compressor to left arm control panel so I can turn off compressor any time, just in case I forget to turn off Valid remote. A little redundant, but as I age, I need all the help I can get. Hope this helps.
  14. I repaired a leaky filler neck with a piece of silicone hose, two clamps, and a flange welded to a filler neck. I drilled a small hole in Aqua Hot cabinet to access lower clamp to tighten. Very simple process and very economical. Hope this helps.
  15. Ernie, the best thing to do is dump all the air and let it settle on the stops in the air bags. This way you get no lean or twist on chassis. Once it warms up, then I would address the problem. It would be a shame if the coach leaked down on one side and was damaged by leaning into the wall of your storage unit. Hope this helps.
