Hi from East Texas
We purchased a 1993 Champion Telstar motorhome. It needs a lot of work.
:facepalm: We are trying to get the generac generator working. We are having a problem getting the generator to keep running. It starts, runs for a few seconds, then dies, unless you keep holding the start button. We are going to check the fuel system.
:banghead: We are also having trouble with the vehicle air conditioning. Switches from vent to defrost whenever I accelerate. I think it is a vacuum issue.
:confused: The cruise control is rather sporatic. Sometimes it works and then it doesn't.
:mad: When we are on the road, it gets very hot at the rear of the RV. We added a small AC unit, a 5000 watt inverter and a second house battery bank (just for this AC). We decided that we wanted to leave the original house battery bank alone and add this second battery bank as a seperate system. We bought a Balmar Digital Duo Charge, but are not sure how to wire it. We have a start battery, the original house battery bank, and now a second battery bank. We don't know if we should connect this second battery bank to the vehicle alternator or to the original house battery bank.
:eek: Last (for now) there is an electrical short in the body. You get little tingles when you touch the body.
:bow: Help!!! We have a lot of questions, thats why I joined this forum. Any suggestions, comments or advice will be greatly appreciated.
