Coach / No shore power
« Last post by cattlejack on Today at 11:09 AM »
Hello fellow engineers
I have no power to my refrigerator when plugged into shore power.
First step to look for is?
Hello again, thank you so much to all of you that responded!

Gary, it's probably a little too late now where you are located, but I will call you first thing tomorrow morning.

I called alretta and spoke to Geoff about 3 days ago. I knew beforehand that these drums have not been made for a very long time but I thought it was worth a call anyways following the advice of everybody here. I've heard from here and other places that he is the man when it comes to these old motorhome brakes. He told me the drums have not been made for quite some time and I would need to locate a donor chassis or someone with a used set. It was worth talking to him because besides learning some things, it turns out he has front suspension and steering parts that I might need later.

mytoolman, very cool truck! It is awesome to see older vehicles still in use today. I have heard of the DuraBrake place, I found it not too long ago. But when I saw the minimum order required I didn't bother to ask about the price, haha. It's good to hear about the place in Chicago, I thought maybe someone offered a service like that but I never came across one in my search. I will keep his contact info as a last resort.

I have only been a member here for a short time, but I have read posts from Frank years before that. He was very knowledgeable and will be missed.
Rest in peace Frank.
I have a full set of front and rear 8 lug M300 drums. I’ll have to measure them.

Pull your vaccum line off the advance can in the distributor and check your timing does it change, if not there is your issue. Checking for a vacum leak can be done with a propane torch...unlit of course. Just point hold and wait at all vaccum line connections
Coach / No power from House Batteries
« Last post by Greg on January 21, 2021, 04:10 PM »
I am very frustrated. I do not have power when using the house batteries. Everything works when plugged in or generator running. But once the generator is off or unplugged, no lights. I've checked all fuses. I took it in and they said I had bad batteries. I took them out and fill with water and charged but still nothing. The batteries do not charge while plugged in either. When driving and I flip the switch to charge the house batteries, the battery light going on and my Amper meter goes all the way up above 18.

there seems to be some disconnect between the batteries and rest of coach.

Any ideas???

Thank you!

Frank battled many health issues over the last few years but he never let that dampen his spirit not did he let it keep him from traveling whenever possible.
Happy travels forevermore Frank.
Good advice, Terry.  I do recall someone at a jamboree who was having similar problems.  Same year,  Chevy P30.  When I saw all the vacuum lines under the doghouse, I was shocked.  They did exactly what you said.  Found 3 leaks and it cured the problem.
