    Do you know how I can get in touch with Burt Morgan about the radiator in the 2003 38' alpine and see if he knows of where to get one or has one. cPaul thanks

    Hi Old Scout, Thanks for the info on the passenger side bedroom slide. The reason I thought that it wasn't extending fully is because my wife said she could see light is she looked in the rear most gap. I guess the weather stripping must not be fitting correctly. We have some slide leaks which I now attribute to the coach living in the Phoenix area for its first 5 years, deteriorating the rubber seals. Do you know of anyplace in the western U.S. (we live in Reno) that is good with leak problems and replacing the gaskets if needed?
    Thanks a lot,
    Mike

    Thanks for the info. I will do the search for the "wax valve". We have the rv in storage at present since we are Arizona snowbirds and just need to get our ducks in a row for our return to Montana - our home. Feel more confident driving home now that you agree that it probably isn't the fan motor itself. The unit has never run hot! We will just turn our gen on and use our roof a/c for now. Thanks again.

    Hi,
    Actually, I saw your name in my friends box and thought that you had reached out to me. Go figure. In any event, I do appreciate the feedback. I also found a video on YouTube that pretty much mirrors what my transfer switch looks like and it was attributed to a loose connection. Anyway, nice meeting you and again, thanks.

    Ouch! So, last week I started my Genny to give it its monthly exercise (Onan 5500) and I plugged in a space heater as usual, it ran fine. Voltage was reading around 112V and I had recently done maintenance. It has 380 hours on it in my 04 Allegro 30DA. This past Saturday I started the Genny again and started one AC unit at a time. Each time the voltage read just about 100V. Comps finally cutout to low voltage. Today, it ran fine, but no voltage to the coach. I shut it down, and restarted. Again,it ran fine but still no voltage coming in. Now I checked all breakers - the two at the Genny, and all at the breaker panel. They were all intact. So, I pulled the cover on the transfer switch and, ouch! The neutral lead on the load side of the terminal block was burned right through. Further, when I checked all of the leads on the block for continuity to ground, the two hot leads from the Genny rang out to ground. I guess this means my Genny is shot(?) if so, how come not one breaker tripped??
