    Cat C7 Alternator Neville LBA2108 no output.

    Thanks for the tips. As usual, few things are a simple as I first think they are. Project is deferred till early September. Grandsons are coming for visits at S&B taking up most of July & August.

    Thanks, I'll make sure they are clean and tight.
  3. July and August. Of course there are times when the remnants of a hurricane disrupt the nicer weather. Well at least the 7 weeks we were in NL in 2008 we had mostly good weather. Probably 75-80% of the days were rain free and not a lot of wind. The several days we were in St Johns, the highs were from 79-83*. The TV news was giving very strong warnings to the joggers, walkers, etc to drink plenty of water and watch out for heat stroke. Coming from Texas we thought that was pretty funny. Heat stroke in what we call nice cool 80* weather from the end of April to late October. Ever since our trip to NL I have watched the predicted path of the hurricanes going up the east coast of the USA and it seems like quite a few brush at least the eastern side of NL.
  4. Be aware if you are in Newfoundland this week. The remnants of a hurricane will come by the eastern shore of Newfoundland bringing winds and rain on Sunday 7/15/18.

    Cat C7 Alternator Neville LBA2108 no output.

    Thanks. I made sure I had 12V at the alternator before starting the engine. The 12.4V never changed once the engine started. There isn't a 3rd wire going to the alternator.
  6. I know this is off topic for HDT, but I figured the HDT folks have more experience with alternators for truck engines. I need a new alternator for my 2006 Winnebago Journey, with a Cat C7 engine. There is no output from the alternator and the info I have says it is self exciting. The label on the alternator says it is a Leece-Neville LBA2108. I have found new one on Amazon for $113: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B013TCXOJO/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A3DQWNDT09WO3V And one at NAPA: a re-manufactured one: Wilson p/n WIL90059241 for $283. Should I stay away from the one on Amazon????? The access to the alternator and tension pulley looks pretty easy in my MH. Probably take an experienced tech an hour or two to replace. For me, probably 4-6 hours. One concern is getting the pulley off of the old alternator. Suggestions are welcome. Thanks in advance.

    Keeping RV Fridge Cool While Driving

    You most likely have a single group 24 battery in the trailer. In 6-8 hours of travel the fridge on 12V will use up most all the usable capacity of the battery, leaving you with very little to operate the lights, water pump, etc once you get to camp. Even if you always have elect hookups when you get to camp, you are doing a pretty significant discharge of the battery each day of travel, which shortens the life of your battery.
  8. Edit: **The RV was found this evening and the police are processing the RV for evidence. ** RV Stolen in San Antonio, TX. It is a large Black Class B on a Sprinter Chassis. NC license plate # FBJ-1413. Belongs to a military veteran and his wife/partner. Call 911 if seen https://www.kens5.com/article/news/local/veteran-wife-stranded-after-rv-stolen-in-sa-during-dream-road-trip/273-571329326 RV Stolen Very small.jp2
  9. Belbuca: https://www.belbuca.com/patient/ is another option, instead of a patch on the skin as mentioned earlier, it is a small film you place in your mouth on the inside of your cheek. It dissolves in 15-30 minutes and is effective for 12 hours. She tried the 7 day patch, but didn't like it because it made her spacey, kind of like being high on something. My wife uses belbuca at night and hydrocodone during the day for pain from back surgeries. Editorial comment: Yes there is an opioid epidemic. HOWEVER there are probably millions of people who have taken and are taking hydrocodone and others and they are NOT ADDICTED. They take it to relieve their pain not to get high. Just like some people cannot drink alcohol, because once they take a drink it is very difficult for them to stop consuming alcohol. That doesn't mean we should outlaw alcohol, because some people are addicted to alcohol.

    Time For A New TRuck

    The new diesels are almost as quiet as you new gasser. And they don't stink like the old one did.
  11. Doesn't CN have a phone number which isn't 1-800????
  12. Just being proactive about my slothfulness! 😀
  13. Lots of people don't update the for sale items when they are sold. It is not our highest priority at the time. Besides, many times for these sale items, there is not a lot of activity to remind us that we made the post.
  14. Thanks Pat & Pete. I didn't read back through all the posts in this topic. Sure enough the OP did post the NADA price. Not sure of that was the base or he added in a bunch of options which are standard.
  15. Since I don't have a way to go back almost 2 1/2 years ago to check the NADA price I have NO way to know what the NADA value was then. While their asking price probably was over the NADA, I'm sure the difference wasn't as great as now.
