On my 94 HR Endeavor LE, the power for the Allison transmission comes from a small wire that comes right off the chassis battery. It is fused right there and butt-connected to the wire. I checked fuse and continuity to the wire past the connector, both OK. After having it towed to Allison and spending two hours plus there, I found one more butt connector hidden behind the battery. It had corroded and broken. Lessons learned: #1 The $89 I reluctantly spent for towing insurance at CW paid off better than 10 to 1 Lesson #2 learn where your transmission is getting it's power supply before you need to know. Best wishes, Harvey

Hi -

Sorry to hear about your problem, but glad it's resolved now. And thanks for sharing the tip with us.

I cannot echo strong enough the necessity to know your vehicle intimately, or at least have ALL the operator/service info you can get ahold of (in the event you're stuck way out in nowhere-land someday). I carry around a bulging filebox as well as a 256M flash-drive with everything about my components I could vacuum up from this and other forums and the various mfgr websites.

I had the unfortunate opportunity in a previous coach to be marooned and the only service-shop within a zillion miles said they would be glad to tackle my problem, but since neither of us had any diagnostic info or repair-data, they were working blind. To shorten the story, we did finally get on the road (or I wouldn't be typing this, right?) but it made a believer out of me. I probably have more data on-board than a lot of the dealers I've seen in the past. I might add that Monaco has been super in helping me collect my library.

But with that previous rv I mentioned, the mfgr said everything about their coaches was proprietary. Makes ya wonder how they learned to run a 120vac wire better than the rest of the industry, or why I never knew how special their black-water dump system was.



Thanks!
Ron
