General Discussion / Scanguage 2
« on: May 20, 2020, 08:08:53 am »
Think I’ve just sold my Chinook which I had added subject and will be leaving it with it.  Just received a new scanguage and will be installing today in the PC.  I know I will program trans temp, water temp, and voltage.  Leaves one slot open.  What say you for this 4th slot?

General Discussion / Crank battery charging
« on: May 01, 2020, 01:26:20 pm »
2nd try at this post, so sorry if it pops up again.  Following the trik l start thread, do I read that the crank battery is charged ONLY from the alternator, even if plugged in to AC if no trik l start is present?
Now looking at trikLStart and see prices from $30 at one place to 75 on amazon.  Also see different revisions, so would a higher revision letter be more current?

General Discussion / Wire harness? Use?
« on: April 30, 2020, 10:02:46 am »
2014 2552.  The triklstart thread got me looking.  First no trick l start that I can find. But did see this bunch of wire bundle. 12 wires, about 18ga, 2 about 14ga., all have been shrink wrapped on the ends very neatly, just hanging from firewall where air cleaner goes back.  Blu/white,2x blu,tan,yel/green,gen/red,grnx2,purple/gen,yellow,blu/purple,tan/org.  At least the visible ends aren’t attached to anything, hidden ends go into a big,wrapped bundle. What would these be for?

General Discussion / Rear ladder
« on: April 15, 2020, 01:55:06 pm »
Anybody know who mfg the rear ladder for a 2552 ?  I found a stamp “qmp mfg” on the bracket that accepts the pins that hold it down, but looking at their catalog I can only find that bracket, not the ladder.

General Discussion / Battery door locks
« on: March 30, 2020, 11:46:29 am »
Maybe y’all know this but:  one side would lock, but the other side would not.  Examination showed the rotating arm was not aligned with the slot in the fiberglass.  Previous owner had kept per evidence enlarging the slot to make the arm lock.  I got a flat file out to do the same, but with more care than had been previously done.  Looking at the arm, I noticed it would screw in or out by twisting the knob.  Ahha this makes the swing arm move in or out to fit the slot.  This gets out of align as I see it because I can’t remember which side screws clockwise or counter clockwise to unlock.    They are opposite.  So if you screw the wrong direction too much you’ve  misaligned the arm to the slot. 
Sorry , slow day and I’m bored

General Discussion / Slide brand
« on: March 17, 2020, 09:31:55 am »
2014 2552... what brand slide mechanism would this have?  The “box” has the external braces that pivot when open/close.

General Discussion / Turn signal camera, part 3
« on: February 13, 2020, 04:54:14 pm »
Got the new multiplexer in, still didn’t fix the left turn issue.  Good news is River Park will take it back.  BUT the bad part is it cost $45 plus shipping, what I didn’t know was shipping was $28.75!!!.  This is a part about the size of a deck of cards.  Now they are good to answer the phone, return calls and answer emails.  Sent me a diagram of the wiring plugs and what each pin does.  With that I was able to check voltage on pin one, and checked continuity on the other pins.  Checked ok, so guess cable is good.  So narrowed down to a bad camera, so new one on the way.  Tech support couldn’t really tell me how to remove camera from fender , “only sell them, don’t install them”.  Which I guess is true, so no problem there.  After a lot of delicate fiddling finally got the cover off.  If any one ever needs to, there is a claw/hook on the pointy end that you have to slide the cover off pulling toward the lens.  Found either a shoddy install or some where along the way was fiddling with it as only one screw where there should be two under the cover hatch, which has to be gently priced out to see the screws.  Told tech support about the removable and they added it to their  notes if any one else asks. 
Probably should have just lived with original problem but like to see things work that I paid for in the first place.

General Discussion / 2nd go on turn signal camera
« on: February 05, 2020, 06:19:29 pm »
No luck with previous post.  On a sticker on the right side turn signal camera MADE IN CHINA (duh) ,3500R(it is on the right side) and 12461.  A search on the last number finds a carburetor.  So does anybody have something like this and know the brand name?

General Discussion / Left/right turn signal camera
« on: January 30, 2020, 02:46:48 pm »
2013 vintage.  Can’t find the brand name for the L/R camera.  Left side does not work, right does.  Previous owner said loose wire.  Spent some time under the dog house(has to come out to get access) but couldn’t find anything wrong.  Now realize after all back together should have switched connectors to see if problem moved.  Will try that later. Anyhow, anybody know maker, doesn’t look like Mobileye.  Sort of like furrion but not quite.  How to get camera off from fender?  Search didn’t help.

General Discussion / Another no-no command hooks
« on: January 25, 2020, 08:37:34 am »
Still on our first trip out.  Behind the lounge chair (2552) I mounted 2 command hooks to hold rain coats or whatever.  If your familiar with this, they stick good and are removable.  HOWEVER I’ve now found that the vinyl wallpaper that the hook attaches to has separated from the substrate (plywood?).   It hasn’t torn yet.  When we get back home I’ll try shooting some headliner adhesive thru a pin hole and see if I can get the vinyl to re-stick.  No more command hooks, gurrr.

General Discussion / Furnace/heat strip
« on: January 21, 2020, 08:13:01 pm »
50 amp 2 ac w/heat strips.  Why does the front ac blower come on when I turn on the furnace?  First trip is a real learner.

General Discussion / Shower faucet
« on: January 18, 2020, 04:13:16 pm »
First trip out, first shower.  Cold water handle broke off.  Can’t see how to remove.  CHEAP plastic.  Any experience on how to remove, replace?

General Discussion / Partition covering pt 2
« on: January 08, 2020, 03:00:49 pm »
Follow up to previous post.  Couldn’t save any of the mirror.  It was very rigidly affixed to the partition.  38 pieces of double stick tape and a bunch of construction adhesive.  I think if it had been mounted to “float” with L clips it could take some flexing.  Anyhow had to rip out the luan that mirror was fixed to.  No saving it.  This shows the construction methods of the partition.  Imagine a picture frame made out of 1” square wood. 1/8” luan affixed to both sides.  That’s it.  Numerous screws sticking thru within from mounted the shirt closet over the drivers side bed(2552).  I ripped 2/4 to 1” and added a few extra full length strips to reinforce what was there.  Found a nice sheet of thin birch plywood and fashioned a new panel.  Different species of wood take stain differently.  We have a cherry interior and I found that red chestnut stain on birch is about as close as you can get to matching the real cherry cabinetry.  So 4 coats of stain some sanding and 2 coats of Polly and I’m good to go.

General Discussion / Partition covering
« on: January 05, 2020, 09:30:05 am »
There is a partition between the bedroom and living room on the slide side.  The sliding door is anchored on this partition.  Until yesterday there was a full length mirror covering the living room side of this partition.  Leveling jacks tweaked the mirror enough to crack it in several places.  Was this mirror standard equipment on a 2552?  Videos and HWH literature say frame distortion is not supposed to happen, BUT.  So, if you don’t have a mirror in this location, what material do you have that covers the partition?  We have cherry cabinets and plank floor.  I’m thinking a thin plywood sheet with some type of contrasting vinyl.  There is a narrow trim piece that framed the mirror.  What say you.  Today will be spent scraping mirror fragments off the wall.

General Discussion / Skid wheels
« on: December 29, 2019, 01:42:48 pm »
Anybody found that actually had need to make use of their hitch mounted skid wheels.  Looking at my rear levelers I would like for them to tuck up some more or add the wheels.
