Allegro/P-30

A place to share information about and to get help with your Tiffin Allegro and its P-30 Chevy chassis. I'm amazed at the seemingly infinite combinations of floor plans throughout the years.

Well it was cold and rainy but fun. The furnace works great after I put a new circuit board in her. Good thing because it snowed on us the last night.

Another successful trip

Well another successful trip. This one to colonial Williamsburg VA. Had a great time and no incidents at all.

Redoing Onan genset wiring an such.... 3 Replies

In the next few weeks I've made the decision to pull the BFA 4.0 genset from the Allegro and get it into the workshop. Too many past splices to the wiring, the remote panel works half the time, now…Continue

Removed the Roof Rack 3 Replies

Well after years of contemplation, I finally decided to remove the roof rack. I love the classic Allegro look, but I just couldn't keep up with the leaks anymore. From the factory, there are 44…Continue

Thanks Phil!

I have a Bookdocking unit on order to replace my old and not-sure-it-even-works no label model.

It is a power converter. Mine went bad on our first camping trip. Replaced it with a up dated version. Half the size and has a battery maintenance programmed in it. I would replace it while you've got the fridge out. Well worth the money in the extra life you'll get out of house batteries.

I pulled my Dometic fridge unit out to fix the roof leaks and rot and realized that under this cabinet, bolted to the floor of the RV is some metal box with a vented top. It's plugged in and has what looks like a voltage regulator mounted near it and some lead (metal and looks to be a thermostat wire going down into the floor). The box is aluminum and is about 11" wide by 8" high and about 9" deep. I'll be examining it more and I assumed it was some sort of inverter but the other connections give me pause.

Managed to redo the wiper/washer hoses, pump and tank so now I can hit a push button and get some water to wash mud and crud off the windshield! Of course we won't be able to travel but hey, it's one thing off my list!!

Got the belt issue fixed by pulling the alternator and putting the RIGHT pulley on her! Finally, the belt is on a correct 6 groove pulley. One more thing fixed on the Long Hauler 2.

Getting ready for the next road trip south to beat the winter blues. If only we can get Mom to not pack for 3 months of clothes....

That is good the belt came apart when it did. We lost ours in the middle of nowhere, 4 hours to get a wrecker and towed to a mechanic. Then 2 days of repair, they had to get the part from 150 miles away. Fun times LOL

Took the LH2 out for a short test drive after getting the new license plates on her. The squeaky belt finally blew off after a gas station stop! Glad it did this now vs. on the way to Myrtle Beach in a couple of weeks!

I decided to use a guy I trust in Daytona, Bill's Discount Carburetor. he's old school and when I got my carb back from him I almost accused him of swapping it for a newer one! Now I get 19+ pounds vacuum and the engine sounds like it's on a dyno stand in the shop.  Jim, you may want to try him out. it was about $200 then shipping. His wife runs the office, so you know it's legit.

Jim, Sounds like your PCV valve is clogged or not working as far as the crankcase pressure. Or the port in the carb for the PCV is clogged

Comment by Jim Stoltz on October 3, 2019 at 10:19am

Yeah mine has never run right. It's a reman carb, so it's "new." It doesn't like to start when it's cold, but that's because of the way I have the choke adjusted. If it sits for any period of time I need to pump the pedal 10-15 times before it will fire. It's running super rich and at a stop light will eventually start to flood. Idle drops and I have to put it in neutral to rev it up and clear it out. Once it's moving it's great.

I have a lot of crankcase pressure and I'm wondering if that's normal. I did a compression check and all of the cylinders are fine, but I get a lot of pressure/smoke out of the breather. It's hooked up to the air cleaner so it gets burned up anyway but it seems excessive to me. That being said, it has plenty of power and isn't using any oil. It leaks a little, but I never have to top it off. Have you noticed crankcase pressure on yours (or anyone else with a 454?).

And I, too, recently fixed my generator. It was running out of gas. It was a loose hose clamp at the pickup tube - the pump was losing suction. It's been bugging me for years. I'm glad I finally found the problem.

It's been a while since I've posted here, but I was also plagued with a squirrel infestation earlier this year. They set up camp in the void between the top of the gas tank and the floor. They chewed through ALL electrical, air and fuel lines that run across the top of the tank. It was a lot of work but I got it back together and working for our annual trip to NASCAR this past June.
