electrical issues could it be a ground ?

I have a 1995 monaco windsor with roadmaster chassi.When driving this motorhome my rpm gauges and volt meter gauge will stop working and it will also get stuck in gear and wont shift while driving.Was wondering if anybody had any of this happen to them and what they did to fix the problem.Could it be a ground wire and also if i leave it set over night without unhooking the batteries they will go dead.

Not being familiar with your steup, all I can suggest is: 1) look for any loose/corroded wiring connects/plugs that attach to the engine harness. Also see if you can get a wiring diagram for the MH. This will also help you trouble shoot the draining of the batteries which appear to have some type of parasitic load when the MH is shut down over night. Your battery disconnect switches/relays should isolate both coach and chassis batteries when off. Bad grounds can cause some pretty strange things to happen but, in this case I don't know with looking at a wiring diagram. Sorry I could not help any more.

Just my guess here only.

Trying to get a wire diagram for (most, if not all) MH's is a non-strarter. These kinds of problems are when you just pull out your cheque book and 'Pay the Man.'

My guess is you have more than one 'problem,' these folks, by your description of the problem, know where to start looking. And tracking these damned things down is a 'Master Craftmanship.'

Fea,

I have to disagree with you on this. If a person has the mechanical apptitude and the time, it lends it self towards learning about your MH and saving the cheque book.

I fix aeroplanes for a living and have managed to find most but not all the technical data for my MH at no cost and it has saved the pocket. If I did not not have the back ground that I do then yes, I would probably have to pay the man. But I do encourage folks if able and the interest is there to perform at least some of thier own maintenace as it can help with the cost of onership.
