Accommodating temperture restrictions
Last August when we were north bound on I-39 somewhere between Bloomington, Ill. I went over a bump in the road caused by road construction. No electrical, no transmission, no engine, no nothing.
I managed to coast to the side of the road and their we sat.
We try to prevent this by good maintenance and driving reasonably but it can still happen.
As I observed in a previous post, on a roughly 350 mile northbound drive on I-75 I saw 4 class A MH broken down. If we should have a breakdown and would post the following information on this thread it could be a resource and reminder for others.
The bump caused it to break connection and after some fiddeling with things contact was made again.
Try checking all screws and especially the plugs that connect the harnesses together. RV particulars: Safari Driveline (Engine, Transmission): 8.2 Detroit Miles: 80k Year: 90 Break Down Description: Shut off for lunch & wouldn't start Symptoms: Runs good but wouldn't start Effect: Cause: Fuel solenoid contacts not making Outcome: Replaced fuel solenoid, it turns out that the contacts in the solenoid can be cleaned and the solenoid re-used.
I would suspect that an initial report could be done in about three months or when we have about 100 to 150 cases. * This post was last edited 02/07/08 pm by an administrator/moderator * Most diesel engine breakdowns are probably fuel delivery problems or elictrical.Called him up told him my problem and he says I’ll be there in 5 minutes.Well Louie showed up looked at the motor and diagnosed my problem to be the governor.It kept running so we headed out and made it back to Stevens Point, Wisconsin without further incident.I took the coach up to my dealer who looked the coach over from front to back but they couldn't find a thing wrong with it. We had just bought our rig and was heading down to Tombstone for the weekend with a few friends.

I try to do all my own maintenance and keep a close eye on potential problems, however with a complicated rig such as these motorhomes are it is a moumental task.
