360 Diesel Pusher

Looks like it broke off. It's molded into the housing. I'd drill out the hole and tap it for pipe thread. Screw a plastic fitting into it with some epoxy on the threads. Probably good to trim the fitting so it doesn't stick up into housing and trap a pool of water in the bottom.

So... condensate drain: There is an actual clip in fitting that converts from a larger hole to a round drain nipple with square plate. Mine was broken flush at the plastic plate. I went to autozone and got a series of plastic vacuum hose male to male extensions and used a 3/4in one to fit in the hole. Sadly it was super loose, but necessity is the mother of invention, so I used some duct tape to increase the diameter, and then used automotive goop to hold it in place. A 3/4" x 18" hose connects to the end of the adapter and passes through the access port to the underside of the moho. I now have a condensate drain line again.

The Missus wanted some stuff for the moho. She was initially against the moho, but relented after years of pestering, now she loves it except the duplication of kitchen utensils and the small kitchen limitations of the moho. I told her I could meet her requirements if she was okay with some purchases. She agreed, and the rest is history:
Space Saving Prepware
Space Saving Storage
Space Saving Utensils
Multi-function Cutting Board
Multifunction peeler

Next on the list:
Nesting cookware

Current project is the backup camera. The camera does not work, but the CRT monitor fires up. I can hear the mic of the old camera. Looking for options I ordered a voyager replacement, with the adapter. Hooked it up, and no response. Tested the continuity in the adapter, all checked out, and the wires matched specs to convert from voyager to Sony. So, now I am thinking the new camera is bad, and looking for other options.

For around $400 you can get a nice double din stereo with touchscreen. Just picked up one for my Ford Explorer. They come with a free color backup camera.

No specific endorsement of Kenwood. Haven't installed the backup camera yet.

I installed a Pioneer in the AS a couple years ago. Still using the Sony backup camera as it's still working fine. I like having it on constantly as a rear view mirror. You could put a switch on the Kenwood to use as a reverse signal.

started the family vacation on Wednesday. Went to colaws rv salvage in carthage mo. Not impressed. Then to Houston TX and got a picture of the AS at NASA's rocket park. Will post later. Currently in Destin, FL, and tomorrow, we head to Ocala, FL. This has been the major event after our short weekender shakedown cruises. Also towing our 1998 saturn sw2. Getting about 9-11mpg depending on terrain. 9 in hills 11 on flat terrain.

Only one major issue has developed thus far.

The generator is not working properly as of Friday night. Onan marquis 6500 lp. Would run everything with power to spare. Now, it does not. It will unreliably run a single ac unit. the voltmeter reads the volts fluctuating between 123 and 113 on the house alternating current. it will fluctuate between 1-2 volts beginning at 123 and gradually step down to 113 and cut out. If it is hot (i.e. 90+) it will run like that for about 3min, in the upper eighties it will do it for about 30 min, and below eighty it will run for hours, but the volts are not constant. Will take the time to research more when we finish, but it makes the travel in the southern heat uncomfortable without it.

We have some friends with an Onan. They have spent at least. $1,000 fixing it, and it still doesn't work.

Another quick diagnostic is engine speed. Should be running at 1800 rpms. If you have a multi meter that measures frequency, check for 60hz. If you have a timing light that displays RPMs it should show 1800. That will tell you if it's the engine or the Generator.

If it's low rpms, it could be as simple as a dirty air cleaner.

The AS at NASA as promised.

Air Dog, is your genset bolted in position, or is it on a winch or slide out tray? Ours is bolted, making maintenance difficult, and requires a transmission/atv/waverunner jack. Don't have that with me
