I did that once. Was an aha moment for sure.  Fortunately the dealer had all the original manuals less 1 in the booklet when I bought my rig.  I researched and downloaded the remaining one.  Very handy.

Hello Jim
In my case the noise in the video mimics exactly what I hear inside the coach. Its been that way since I purchased it. I have high hopes that this solves my noise issue.  I am going to try and source the bolt and pulley tomorrow locally either from Ford or Napa..

Good to see your still around, I see some of your comments on FB occasionally.  I hope you have had time to enjoy your coach some. We are getting prepared for our Fl trip. Thanks for letting me know that you have installed the pulley and it didn't really solve your noise. I will let you know if it solves the noise I hear in my PC.
Good Luck and Safe Travels
Very Respectfully
Lance

Some people are offended FWIW. Can there be no safe haven from politics these days?

I agree guys (and gals).  Whatever our sentiments about issues personal to us (politics, religion, etc), there is someone else out there that holds differing views.  That "someone" deserves the right to participate in a forum on an entirely neutral subject (like Phoenix Cruiser RVs for instance) that doesn't subject them to references that have nothing to do with the subject under discussion, and that make them uncomfortable.  In the Phoenix USA community we are all equal partners, participants, and friends when dealing with our RVs.  No need to rupture that compact by broaching subjects or comments that take us outside the joint interest of the forum that will sit differently with different members.

Well said. I work in the music world, and believe you me... silence is golden.  :)(: :)(:

I added the second pulley to mine  in hopes it would resolve the minor pinging type noise I experience under no load 2100-2500 rpm.
I was very hopeful after coming across a video online showing how the belt can vibrate without the second tensioner.
Unfortunately adding the second pulley didn't seem to have any positive or negative affect and my noise persists.
Was trying to decide if I should remove the pulley but think I will leave it on for now as it doesn't seem to hurt anything.

My noise is not loud or obnoxious, almost sounds like the engine is purring under no load. (It does sound like a cat purring)
Like a soft rolling tapping noise.
I could live with it if I knew it was normal or not causing any damage.
It goes away under any load or below 2K rpm.

Have never heard a chirp from under my hood. (on this vehicle)

Here are the parts I used to add the pulley:

It was an easy 10 minute add.

Hello Ron
That could have been the case with the ranger. I have in the past on other vehicles sprayed belt dressing on the belt and it would stop the noise for a little while. In this case however I took a mechanics stethoscope and I can hear it at the alternator in my case.

A friend of mine has a Tiffin Class A with the Triton V10 and he has the idler pulley installed on it. His Tiffin is a 2018, plus for my 2017 you can look up and Ford lists a idler pulley for the right side. Not sure if Tiffin just knew of the issue and installed the pulley or that frame with the Triton is setup like that when it arrives at the factory. Just more food for thought.  Does your coach have the idler pulley on the drivers side?

Not sure this applies, but........

For a number of years, I owned a Ford Ranger pickup truck with the 3.0L-V6 engine.  I bought it used with a chirping belt.  I replaced the belt with a new per-spec one and it still chirped.  Long story short, I ended up buying another new belt that was 1/2" shorter which solved the problem.

I will always wonder if the idler pulley was replaced at some time by a previous owner and it was a tad bit smaller than the original one.

General Discussion / No easy access to HDMI connector on TV
« Last post by CDWall on November 28, 2021, 04:28:59 pm »
I've looked at this over and over for years and I see no HDMI connector at all in whatever it is they did to make connectors available from the TV on the outside into the right hand cabinet. There is quite an extensive box with all the old type hook ups (red, white, yellow plugs), just no HDMI. I know the TV has at least one HDMI connector because I can see it in the manual. I've been living in my mh for about three months and would like to get roku and use my TV instead of watching everything on my computer. I've searched this and see these three screws inside the right cabinet described but did someone say the TV would fall off that side if I undid them? What wiring there is comes out of a very narrow space at the very back of the cabinet. No way to get to the TV that way without removing the whole panel side to the cabinet. The TV is mounted so tightly on the wall there's no way to feel around and find it from the outside mount.

What were they thinking? This is a 2013, long after HDMI connectors were standard. Does anybody else have this problem? Any advice on how to unearth this HDMI connector?

I just started doing some research as well on this second idler pulley.  They say it stops the noise that sounds like the fuel knock around 2100 RPM. They also said the first run of the 6.8L engines had them then they removed the pulley when they changed from a 8 rib belt to a 6 rib belt.  Seeing as the pulley rides on the backside of the belt the number of groves don't make a difference. The part numbers I found were bolt p/n N808102 S437 and Pulley (Motorcraft YS-385) #1L2Z-8678-AD. I am going to call NAPA tomorrow and see if they can order me in the parts. I have the same knock that sounds like a fuel knock at 2100RPM. I also have a chrip that comes and goes which I believe is the busing in the alternator, which I can live with as some of the oillite bushings will do it on occasion as they wear.

This information came from the Blue Oval Forum, E-450 with V10 serpentine belt instability and noise, By Bullitt6283,
Here is a video that shows it,  https://youtu.be/Oa6cr2dFkPE     
I would have never guessed that was it, wild...
