2009 HR Scepter Lo Coolant warning

Recently purchased 2009 Holiday Rambler Scepter in very nice shape. A Low Coolant Warning Light started coming on intermittently. Visually checked the level in the reservoir and it's right where it should be. Assumed it was a sensor issue, but then discovered that one of the 3 wires in the wiring harness going into the sensor plug had some insulation missing and just a couple of strands of copper wire were all that were actually making continuity. The trouble spot is only about 1/4 inch from the plug which makes splicing a new piece of wire in almost impossible. I am going to try to get a new plug from Holiday Rambler parts department. Hopefully it comes with pigtail wires already molded into the connector. Anybody have experience with this? Soldering? Crimping? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I think what you need is a new plug and wire harnes. These are available from most auto parts stores.

Looks proprietary

Thanks! I was hoping the same thing, but I showed numerous photos of the culprit to a few well stocked auto parts folks and they all said that even if they had something that would fit, it wouldn't have the retaining clips that are so important to keeping it locked in position. I'll call Holiday Rambler parts in the morning and hopefully they'll have an exact replacement plug.

If I were you, I'd either go the Amazon route or call your chassis manufacturer. HR builds the house. The cooling system and wiring I'd from the chassis supplier. Thing is, neither one of these companies make this stuff. They simply assemble the systems using common garden variety parts and pieces.

Don't get confused. HR/Monaco is the house manufacturer and the chassis provider. HR/Monaco built the chassis through it's Roadmaster subsidiary.

True, but they definetly did not make the electrical connectors.

Update

Even HR Parts doesn't show the plug on their diagrams. However, there appears to be "repair kits" available from auto parts stores. A special tool is inserted in a separate orifice adjacent to the female metal insert that is holding the wire causing the trouble. Pressing the tool in disengages two small metal tangs, you pull on the troubled wire and it comes right out of the plug assembly with the insert attached. New wire, a new metal insert, some crimping and a splice and you reinsert the wire in the plug. VOILA!!!!!! Let's hope it works as advertised and that my problem will be gone. I'll keep you posted!
