Last time out, we went to leave the park after a 10 day stay and the coach did not want to build up air. After getting everyone around us annoyed for about 1/2 hour on high idle, I finally gave the governor a rap and things started happening.
So today I bought a new Governor and Air Dryer assembly. $250 for everything. Small price to pay so I don't have folks in the campground giving me dirty looks.

These are of course the Made in China aftermarket for that price. They actually come in an International Truck Parts box with Internatioal Warranty. The OEM Meritor parts are nearly 4X that. Hopefully I can get half as much life out of them as the originals.

Does 5 gallons of the pink stuff count? Had to winterize & put her to bed until spring.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Five gallons! I never used more than 2. I know, you're just making up for what we no longer have to use.

Sunny and 80 here today.

A new thermostat because the cool-off-heat switch became a cool-off switch.

Are you using this relay to shut the whole coach down in case of an electrical
short? You certainly have capacity at 200 amps.

No, it is for the start boost and interconnect for cross charging the batteries. My RV Custom Products 12V power distribution board has the BIRD built into it. Probably overkill.
