Thanks for responses.
I have the manual and have searched Youtube.
I use the generator so seldom and it is not that big a problem. Just bugs me.

I have the standard generator option 2015 triumph. The choke sticks in the open position. I need to manually flick it closed to start it from a cold start. I have details on how to fix it but getting to it is almost impossible for me. I do have experience in repairing things that need it but can't f...

I searched and did not find this site on this forum so will mention it for those not known of it.
This site has been around for at least 15 years and is still pretty active.

I agree with funpilot. There is a short learning curve, the on demand hot water heater is a lot different in operation, but the bottom line is my wife likes it just as much as me.

I had the Scan Gage on my 2003 and liked it until it stopped working. I now use Ultra Gage in my 2015 Born Free. It does similar to Scan Gage but has more features and it is cheaper. Mainly I use it for gallons used, mpg, power level and water temperature. The 2015 Ford E450 displays distance to emp...

We are in the process of buying a new 2014 Born Free unseen at this time. Haven't got a definitive answer from the factory. Does Born Free now install a 3-stage converter similar to PD9245 converter as standard equipment? If so, what brand and model?

I had a rear separation at 19800 miles 33 months.
Have always had Pressure Pros and no previous incident with the tire.
Surely glad I had a spare tire and able to get a service truck to mount it on a Sunday morning 40 miles south of Montgomery Al.

Excuse my faulty logic. All that is needed is a spare tire w/o rim as I had. Then emergency road service will mount it and I will be out just $50. And less dead weight to carry around.

I am now confused. I did carry an unmounted tire in my storage bay under the sofa and had to have it mounted when the tire lost most of its tread. I thought mounting it on a spare wheel could save $50 or so and the need/logistics of buying a tire on the road if needed. If one wheel is not compatible...

I intend to buy a wheel and tire for a spare for our 2002 26RB on a E450 Ford chassis. Can anybody provide me with the correct definition of the wheel (diameter, rim width, bolt pattern, etc)?
