I have a Ford F53 at home that just dies at random times. It even dies when parked and idling. However, it works okay when restarted. Does anybody have an idea about this problem?
The problem is most likely a shorted diode internal of the alternator. You can try to disconnect the alternator plug then allow it to run on the battery. If it goes longer than before without stalling the alternator, it needs to be replaced. Most probably, it is the alternator that is causing this problem because it causes voltage spiking through the module, which kills the engine. It will usually lead to that when the diodes are in bad form because the circuit as well is affected.
I have a Bounder Ford F53 Chassis Class A Motorhome. I would like to know how to properly check the tie rod ends and the steering linkage.
To check the tie rods, you need to check the rubber socket for break down if it is equipped with them. You also need to check whether there is an excessive movement of the system when moved by hand and when the motor home is on a lift. Excessive movement means there is something wrong with it. The whole system should be quite rigid and not loose. This is the best way to check this matter. The pit arm should move as one with the rest of the steering linkage.
On my way home one rainy evening, my wipers quit working all of a sudden in the "Up" position and I had to look around them to see why it happened. I was soaking wet already and decided to just fix it when I arrive home. I tried to fix them but I was unsuccessful. That brings me to a decision of buying a new one. Should I buy a new one?
Have you tried checking your wiper control module? It definitely has got something to do with it. You try to locate it. It is placed on the firewall behind the brake and accelerator pedals. It is very easy to take it out and go check it. So make sure not to buy a new wiper motor until you check this part.
How do I fix the handling of my F53 Ford Chassis on the Fleetwood Flair without spending lot of money? I haven't experienced this issue in the past, so I have no idea what to do about it.
You can do the fixing yourself by making some simple adjustments to the connecting rods at the frame to the torsion bar ends. You simply relocate the connecting rod from the outer hole in the torsion bar to the inner hole. It is a very simple process. You may also do the same in the rear end. Maybe the only difficult part is to get under the motorhome to do the task. You don't have to replace the bars. You sure don't have to put up an amount of money for parts and for installation with this cheap handling fix.
