  1. I have replaced all my slide toppers and with them fullily extended, wound them 13 times. I have had no billowing issue in over 2600 miles. Remember that plastic retention bracket, if you started with the slide in how much more strain is placed on it when you extended the slide. Dave
  2. Where might I find the sensor for the alarm on the truck and any Idea it may look like?
  3. After about 1300 miles after a new governor the alarm sounded twice for about 2 seconds. Today the compressor would cycle about every 9 minutes, much better than the 2 minutes before the governor change. Since the mechanic mentioned a filter in the air dryer, is their such a thing and if so, where might it be located on a 99 VNL610? Dave
  4. 99 Volvo VNL610 with Cummins N14. Drove about 150 miles this morning and all of a sudden the alarm sounds, no red triangle and no red lights on the air pressure gauges. Pressure reading on both gauges about 105 psi. Alarm sounded for a couple minutes then stopped, air pressure increase towards the end of the alarm. Again about 15 minutes later the alarm came on again but lasted for less than 5 seconds, this time pressure reading about 115. Thus happened a total of about 5 times then nothing further. Drove an additional 30 miles until stopping and everything OK. Any idea what may be causing this?

    Air leak help

    Tracked down to it being the PTC fitting on the back of the gauge. Mine are not repairable so ordered new ones, both were leaking. Then tracked further and ended up repairing all 12 PTC fittings where they go through the firewall and one on the engine side of the firewall. Still some air in tanks after 72 hours, so is now a lot better.
  7. Rigs starting to arrive. Looks like More Dearg and about 5 friends are here this morning.
  8. I had one leak that the hose didn't locate but using the Whisper it was found right away. Sometimes it takes different tools to find the issue.
  9. Argo, thanks. PM sent.
  10. I have trimmed the line ends and the leaks still remain. I have checked the price of new guages, $275 for the rear and $300 for the front. Will try the cleaning and dielectric to see if that helps. Thanks for the suggestions.
  11. Yes the air lines were removed as the cluster was on the bench. The collet freely turns and my flavor of slick'um was applied.
  12. Once again I tried to remove the collet and was unsuccessful. Either I need to eat more spinach 😋 or someone else will have to do the job as pulling straight up with the needle nose pliers is not working for me.
  13. I tried pulling the gromet out with needle nose pliers but was afraid of damaging the gauge or the fitting with the amount of pressure needed.
  14. In my 99 VNL 610, tracked down some of my air leaks to the connections behind the guages in the dash cluster. Removed the air lines and tried to take the push to connect fitting apart to put in a new o ring but was unable to get it apart. Is there some trick to get the old o ring out without damaging the guages?
  15. Here is what I did 14 years ago in Mount Vernon. Had a bill of sale called the vehicle inspector from the local WSP office and found out no inspection needed. Printed out copy of RCW 46.04.305 and went to the local auditors office. Told them very little other than wanted to register this over the road tractor that is converted to a motorhome as a motorhome. Paid required fees and walked away with the vehicle registration saying it is a motorhome.
