About six feet of Water Line should hold it in place and stop the wingnut from moving. I really don't see why folks have to over complicate these things. As long as the wiggle pin doesn't fall out of the wobble rod, why it will be right as rain.

You DESPERATELY need to run down a Henweight. The blinker fluid ah-vers-e-0-r is run by 240 volts. This why you need a second Gennie in that 46' motor home. Just trust me on this one ....

You can get those at Harbor Freight. I think they have a coupon out for it right now.

I think this why Chrysler got out of the RV business, however, in doing my research on fixing the problem I found this old training film that really sheds light on the original problem:

Chrysler's Crack at the issue.

It reminds me of a country song. Skip to 2:35.

Here is a closer image.
That looks like the Gonkulato(e)r and Throzzle Rod I posted about.

I've nailed two of my neighbor's homes together; rip out the adjoining wall and heat bill was cut in half. Or so I'm told.

You guys are all over-thinking this very simple problem.

You need to order a round (very important detail .... the square ones don't work!) tuit.

It will take a couple of days to arrive in the mail. Take a nap.

Fix the problem when you get a round tuit.....

By the time the mobile repair showed up, it was no longer hot.

I drove the the cummins dealer, got out and sure enough it was hot! Went right in and after waiting for an hour for the tech to look at it, it was no longer hot!

This has continued and no one can fix it. I get lots of confused looks and head scratching. Most people snicker and laugh as if they don't believe me.

So I am now selling the discovery and buying a newmar. Sometimes you just get lemons.
Must be a lemmon .I'll buy it ,Hows $500 sound.All in $100 bills.

Well so sorry it took so long to diagnose this issue. But I have spent many months in deep research and diagnostic testing. Plus I had to read all the incorrect answers posted here.you aught to get the degree I have before answering. I have A BS in BS from BSU.
OK on to how to fix the problem very easy to do. As always it boils down to the lose wing nut behind the steering wheel. And the driver not knowing his RV as well as I do because you have to maintain your Finnegan your zerks and all of you wachimicallits on a daily basis.

redbaron73---I wouldn't get rid of your motorhome just yet. That seems to be an intermittent problem and although they are hard to trace down, sometimes they will go away by themselves. I ran into this intermittent thingy many times in the 70s when I was a vending machine mechanic. Good Luck!!
