Sam I wished I had the same engine as you do... the 7.3 was a workhorse and old enough to have all the kinks (in programming we called them features) worked out. 2004 was the first year for the 6.0 and they only used them for 3 years. That should have told me something... I only have 28,000 miles on...

Something to watch for on the Ford 6.0 Liter Diesel... Last fall I noticed I could smell anti-freeze when the engine temperature would rise above 225 degrees when the fan clutch kicks in. I use a ScanGuage II to watch the water and oil temperatures and could predict at about what temperature I could...

Bud & Sharon, We were in the Born Free you saw in Steamboat heading east on US 40 on the 9th. I'm not sure which coach was yours because we saw three of them headed west on 40 that morning. All were about 3 miles apart, so its doubtful you were aware of each other. We need ID numbers on the coac...

The HWH system that came with the 2004 26RB I purchased last year had a problem with the driver side front jack not wanting to kick down. After trouble shooting the system by switching the control wiring to the solenoids, it was discovered I had one lazy relay in the control box. I exercised the rel...

Thank you Bill H. for posting my PDF of the converter install in the "Coach Modifications" section. We are lucky to have such a knowledgeable contributor and web admin. While searching the internet for a good use for my old converter (I hate to throw it away) I did find a very interesting site that ...

After reading the various posts about upgrading the existing Magnetek/Parallax 7345 single-stage Charger/Converter and Bill Hemme's excellent instructions for replacing it with Progressive Dynamics PD9160A, I decided to replace the factory unit with the Progressive Dynamics PD4655 ( http://www.bestc...

I googled "Green Brake Fluid" and was surprised at the number of hits that came back. This is not an uncommon problem and there are a lot of possible causes that range from algae in the water that has been absorbed to copper that has leached out of the brake components. One thing all of the sites ag...

My neighbor's 2004 26 RSB had the same problem last fall. He called the factory and they had him check the wiring connections on the fixture. It turns out that the connections were just corroded and needed to be cleaned and re-terminated. I thought I had the same problem on my 2004 26RB in the bathr...

I am not familiar with the Shelter Logic products, but I do see a lot of Weatherport units in Colorado. http://www.weatherport.com/ I have been considering one of their RV garages because of the 2.5 spacing on the structural members provides 170 pounds per square foot snow loading. We get 400 inches...
