Technical Support / Re: Can anyone identify this

Interesting what you find in these old coaches. I would guess it to be a signal amplifier for the TV.

General Discussion / Replace TV in drop down
« Last post by David Sacks on May 23, 2020, 01:25:10 AM »
I want to replace the original TV with the largest one I can. The TV which I’d like to use nearly touches the hole to manually raise/lower TV. I don’t think I have a tool (will get one) but if there is any offset which would need clearance on the tool, I would opt for a smaller one. Does anyone have a picture of the tool or know if it needs clearance. Thanks, DS

Thanks for posting the link, I am not that computer savvy. Using the link will take you to Elkhart Supply and Leggett Supply, both being Flair It distributors. Just glad to know we can still find parts for these old coaches. Thanks again and have a great day.

I’ve used RockAuto for replacement car struts before, but they may not have the correct brand model numbers for you since your application is different.  They sort them by range of length if you try searching there.  Monroe is a common quality brand there.   https://www.rockauto.com/en/tools/body,universal+lift+support,15%22-19%22+extended+length,1001339

To look elsewhere you should enter “support lifts” in your search engine field.  You’ll have better luck than with the term “strut”.  There are lots of suppliers to choose from, including here:   https://www.liftsupportsdepot.com/products/lift-supports-depot-lift-supports/       Stabilus I think is a good brand.

Flair-it is still in business, and they sell on-line. Good resource for part #'s and 'whatchacallit".
A good RV parts dealer should also have fittings in stock.

Fred,
Using the AquaHot fuel return line to tee in the generator fuel return should cause you no issues.

David,
The 2002 Marquis has different design bay doors from one side to the other, and that is probable accounting for your different capacity struts. Normally, it is not a good idea to increase the capacity of your gas struts when replacing them because the higher capacity will over stress the mounts. Your struts are just worn out, which is very normal on an 18 year old coach, so replace them with like rated capacity and size. The problem arises when you get a used coach that has had some of the struts replaced with the wrong struts, All doors of the same size and hinge design should have the same strut.

For those that may need parts for your water manifold contact Leggettsupply.com phone number 918-682-3999. They are located in Muskogee, Oklahoma and are a super store for RV and mobile home parts. They carry all Flair It parts , valves, stems, seals, etc.Website a little flakey to navigate but you just keep searching to find what you’re looking for. Needed to get out of the house so drove the 120 miles away to regain my senses. Did wear a mask though.

Jeff
How often  do you drain your aux. Compressor tank?

Keith

I haven’t as it is ~ 1 gallon and I don’t think there is a drain, certainly not an easy one to reach being up in between the frame rails. The other main tanks I drain once in a while - probably should be more often, but the coach doesn’t get a lot of use so I don’t think it’s too much of an issue.

Fred, One way to find out if both would operate correctly is hook'em up and start'em up and see what happens. With 06 Patriot Thunder I feel blessed as my fuel tank is the whole second bay, I even store stuff on top of it everything is easy to get at.
