Abandoned Motorhome RV We Get It Run And Drive and Then We Get More Issues

الإرشادات والأساليب

We go back to Ny to continue working on the Rv to get it running and we got a new starter and more batteries. We got it running and got it to drive. But then we ran into air pressure issues and the air brakes where sticking. Let us know what else we can do. Thanks for all the support and info.

    You guys are the prime example on how brothers should get along and I envy you, so keep it up and continue to support each other, But for the Motorhome, check the transmission fluid, and also a couple of boost sensors which can take away power, Waiting on the final video on when you guys get this thing solved, you are took far now to call the wrecker and take your thunder :).

    We have an auto braking feature built into our 535 national and it will give you problems in wet inviorment when moving it from long parking like that .. that could be your issue 😏.. I had to let it sit in neutral and then back into reverse in wet Grass to get the auto braking off

    the fault is likely injector pump , diesels have no throttle bodies . only gasoline/petrol engines have throttle bodies.

    Motorhome quality and reliability fell off in 2008. And it seems to be falling off even more in 2021. So 2004 to 2007 are good years, particularly if low mileage. You really need to get up over 120 psi on brake system to get parking brake to pull in the shoes and fully release.

    Air brakes? 60psi

  • Dennis Huntley
    Dennis Huntleyأشهر قبل

    Air brakes need minimum 90psi to release. After sitting expect the brake shoes to be stuck to the drums. Adjust the brake off at the slack adjuster(know when you do you will have NO brake on that wheel untill readjusted). Soon as it's running have that Allison trans properly serviced.

    I had a Monaco just like this one for 10 years. I pulled a 24 ft enclosed trailer behind it and I didn’t even know it was back there. Their warranty and service was exceptional! Great RV! I wish I still had it, the new coaches nowadays are junk.

    The simplest and cheapest thing to try is a new air governor. 90% of the time that’s the problem, unless there’s a massive air leak somewhere?

    "then we got more issues" - welcome to the world of RV's where there are ALWAYS issues. If you're not a "fixer upper type person" ... don't buy an RV. They are all built with the cheapest parts available that "should do the job".

    i highly suggest that you guys. pick up some regular old Composition books to use as a log for the Motorhome i’ve owned 17 or 18 boats and several travel trailers all of those have years of repairs and modifications done by all the people using whatever was available at that time and place like that starter issue if you log model numbers and draw diagrams in your log book it will make life easier in the future you won’t beleive how sometimes the simplest things like gaskets. get changed from one model to another on these products over the years that’s one item i always traced into my log book and always brought to the parts stores when i went there it saves a lot of running back and forth with one that didn’t work FYI the reason for the Composition notebooks is they are pretty tough and can be used with greasy hands. inside engine compartments in the dirt , rain etc without falling apart plus they are cheap to buy it also gives you a common spot to put everything pertaining to that unit like oil changes and other maintenance items trust me you might think you can remember that but you won’t Motorhomes often use Commercial Chassis and parts like that Cummins might be exclusive to a particular Motorhome builder and that Starter may be different then another Motor Home or truck with the same size Cummins engine it’s crazy but boat builders do the same thing and let’s face it sometimes the Parts guys aren’t the sharpest tools in the Shed so anytime you have as much info as you can you are ahead of the Learning curve

    Almost 19 out of 20 starter motors the problem of not operating is due to the solenoid that is bad. The motor part (armature) just spins the drive nothing else. The solenoid supplies the armature with power but when the solenoid goes bad then no spinning the drive gear. Change the solenoid, guarantee it will work just fine once again.

  • j christensen

    Stater motors on a diesel sometimes have a time limit for spinning them. I found out the hard way and it cost me 165 dollars. The time limit was listed on a sunvisor, but who looks at that?

    Clean it up so it looks like a daily driver. Get 3 good road assist policys with maxmum towing. Roll it out on the street and call the tow truck. "hopscotch" the tows all the way home.

    If the check engine light is on you can read it with a blue fire dongle off Amazon and blue fire app on your phone. I would bet it's a crank sensor putting it in limp mode happened to ours. Check the plug . And if you don't get the air up it wont let the breaks release. Rase the Jack's so you can get under and this wont let it move when releasing breaks ,release the breaks and get under there and tap the drums and the air chambers.
