I lube my chassis every time I change the oil. How do I know if the U joint fittings have enough grease in them? I push it in until it seems full by pressure.

3-4 pumps should be enough, or just until grease starts seeping out of the seal. Any more than that, and you wind up slinging grease all over the underside of you coach.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

The starting/chassis battery problem turned out to be a defective relay that's mounted to the undercarraige next to the battery tray. Apparently, it went bad and continued to drain the batteries whether the coach and chassis battery switches were on or off. I walked through with the mechanic what he did and where everything was located and how it all worked. Total damage was 200 bucks and a AAA tow.

Thanks again for everyones suggestions. If I experience any more problems like this, I have a better grasp of where to start and what to look for.

Happy trails..........
