Last week, while headed to the Davis Mountains in far far west Texas, around 10:00PM I came upon a large dead wild pig laying in my lane. I almost missed it but hit it with the left front tire on my 2002 26RSB. The result, other than a splatter from a bad zombie move all over the tow car, was damage...

The replacement of the original single stage converter with a three stage unit went well. I ordered the replacement unit as suggested and it arrived as promised in two days. Removal and replacement of the original unit was easier than I expected but still took about 6 hours. Thank you for your help ...

My coach has the original converter. I see 30 and 60 amp replacements that appear to replace the entire power center. Which size converter is recommended for the upgrade?

I received two 12v AGM batteries as Christmas gifts. Can I safely use them without changing the shore power converter in my 2002 BF26RSB?
Will the charger be too strong on the AGM batteries?
Thanks!

For any one facing this problem on your own, here are my suggestions. Use care and exercise extreme caution with...

Update. The transmission locked up and would go only in reverse. HD tow truck required to tow to transmission shop. Rebuild of tranny was required.

Suggest driving to shop if anyone has the slipping transmission issue. Better to deal with it at the first sign of trouble.

Thanks for the good advise. I will see how many containers I can muster to hold the gas. If I can get the tank or pump free, has any one tried installing an access hatch in the floor above the tank? I have looked at several marine hatches but none that would have a flush install in the floor. Replac...

I have my 2002 e450 RSB raised up on jack stands in my driveway and I am ready to drop the tank. The fuel pressure is zero on the new test gauge. The fuel relay is good. The fuse is good. The fuel filter is new. Sadly I paid good money less than a year ago to have a shop replace the pump but it has ...

Does any know how to resolve an issue where the transmission is slow to shift into forward or reverse on the Ford E450 with V10 engine. I have a 2002 26'RSB V10-gas - Automatic. The engine requires a very high RPM to back up and has a several second delay before the forward motion begins after shift...

Thank You! By removing the cover, it was obvious that I was not pushing hard enough to lift the contact and place the switch in theoff position.
I just needed to be a bit more agressive with the switch until it had a positive click.
A simple push until it clicked was all it needed.

My 2000 24RB thermostat for the propane heating system will not switch off. The temperature setting is set to lowest and the switch is pushed a far as possilbe toward the left (toward the off arrow) but the heater still comes on when the interior temperature is cooler than 45 degrees. When the RV is...
