Good morning, Dawn;      It was time for a new thread.      Yes, that 14.8 V DC for your voltage regulator in the motor home is a little high.  Normally I would say that it probably should be OK, but…Continue

The Kidde Fire Extinguisher Recall, and you

Good morning;      Yesterday afternoon at about 3:00 PM, I watched as a 1985 Itasca Class C motor home built on a GMC G-30 chassis went up in flames.      The engine had caught fire just as the owner had parked it and switched off the ignition.  Then he noticed the smoke.      There was an engine fire, and I asked if he had a fire extinguisher.   He ran to the side door and ;pulled out the fire extinguisher.  It was one of those that is listed in the Kidde fire extinguisher recall, and it did…See More

14.8 V DC and Dawn's BlueTooth to FM Radio Converter

Good morning, Dawn;      It was time for a new thread.      Yes, that 14.8 V DC for your voltage regulator in the motor home is a little high.  Normally I would say that it probably should be OK, but with your sample of the BlueTooth to FM radio converter, it seems to be more sensitive to the voltage level for some reason.  Without being able to put the BlueTooth converter on a variable voltage power supply and playing with it to see what it is doing and how much power it is drawing at various…See More

A 1987 Winniebago Elandan WCP31RT restoration, repair, upgrade, and efficiency improvments

Good morning; 

     Pat has suggested that we talk about what we are doing with our older motor home Recreational Vehicle, and how that work is progressing.  I think that a 28 year old motor home RV qualifies for the term "classic" or perhaps "vintage,"  so it should meet the definition for "older," so it might fit in here. 

     I had not really intended to get a motor home RV back in the summer of 2013.  It just sort of happened.  It had belonged to a…
