Hi, I'm new to irv2 and so far have not figured out how to post anything. I found this forum searching for "Gulfstream". I just purchased a '93 Gulfstream sunstream 2000, 34' class A gas motorhome. It came with no manuals whatever so it has been an adventure figuring things out. It appears the coach batteries are not charged by the engines alternator. The only charging source seems to be the converter when plugged into shore power, or while running the generator. There is an "emergency start" button on an electrical distribution panel under the hood that fires a relay tyeing all the batteries together but it does not make contact. I assume the relay is bad. even if it was a good relay, one would have to hold the button the entire time to charge the coach. Is this how it's supposed to work? There is also a spring loaded button on the dash with a picture of a headlight on it that appears to do nothing at all. It seems odd the coach batteries canot be chared by the engine while under way. I read another post explaining on some MH's the coach batteries are only charged after the engine batteries charge is complete. Any ideas would be helpful, thank you.

Lynn and debbie, welcome to our website and forum. We are glad to have you join us. Congratulations on your new to you motorhome. Some manufacturers do not install a charging system from the chassis to house batteries. I know it sounds strange but they are still doing this on today's entry level coaches. If in fact yours is designed this way, it would not be difficult to change it to have an isolator to charge the hose off the altenator. You may want to call Gulf Stream as to wheather you have a problem or not. As to the switch on the dash, it may be the ACC switch. This is to flash your clearance lights for thanking truckers or other motorhome drivers when passing. The emegercy boost switch is momentary for a reason. The solenoid is not rated for constant duty and may be the reason it is not working. GOod luck and take care.

Sorry it's taken so long to reply to your response. I've been having a lot of fun figuring out how everything works with no manual. Turns out the relay I mentioned in my last post was in fact bad. I replaced it and now the engine charges the batteries. The relay engages within 30 seconds of starting the engine.
I have since installed a Shure-Flow remote controlled ventilation fan, and a solar panel to help keep the batteries up during dry camping. I am considering a second solar cell just for the fan as my wife likes to run it 24/7.
Over the 4th of July after running several hours in 110 degree heat my generac 5.2 KW generator began running rough and died while powering the air conditioner. I couldn't find anything definitively wrong with the genset or the AC unit. The next day it worked fine. Does anyone have any data on the Generac NP-52G generator? I suspect it was simply overheating. Also the 30AMP main breaker in the power converter has been opening while running the AC in anything but the LOW setting. I have two roof air units and its happening with both units. (I run them one at a time). This has occured while on shore power and with the genset. Are the CB's in the power converters often suspect?

We are new to this site and are looking for information about sealing our 2004 Gulf Stream sive. It recently started leaking and have looked at some products online..Eternabond looks like the best thing. Does anyone know anything about the product? Am I wasting my time using it? Also, we didn't know it was leaking because it was parked for a couple of months, can you get mildew out of the carpet ceiling? Looking for help and advice. FL Cracker

WOW ! Cracker, sounds like you have a major problem !! My 2004 has not had any leaks, I check the roof seams and caulking regularly.

I recently used a sealer from "KOOL SEAL" that I painted on over the caulking and edges, just
for insurance. Next as soon and if this rain
ever stops and the temp rises into the 70's,
I am going to clean prime and seal with the
KoolSeal products.

Bleach may work on the inside ceilings, but
be very careful.

Best Regards, Clyde

I have a 2004 Friendship and have never had a water issue, I leave it parked with the slides open and have never seen a drop.

The only problem I have that I have not been able to fix is the odd way the chassis AC works, it always blows hot, I checked the electric valve and it works fine, was so frustrated on a trip I stopped at a NAPA store and purchased a mechanical valve and installed it in the hose going to the exchanger, that worked but not the correct way to fix. Any such problems our there??

Tom Curnow, welcome to our website and forums. We are glad to have you join us. What chassis is your Friendship on; Spartan? I believe that the front end of the system was installed by Gulf Stream. I think we may have had some discussion on this type issue in the past.
Try this search

Good luck and keep us posted.
