Hello, I have a 34' 1989 Fleetwood Bounder on a Chevy P32 Chassis. The darn thing sat for 6 years, so, I've replaced several things. Recently I replaced the carburetor with a Uremco 3-3837 and it's now running. However, it dies going uphill and/or shifting into 3rd and 4th gear. I was told the throttle position sensor (TPS) and idle air control motor (IAC) should be replaced and it should fix the issue. I was also told that if it does not fix the issue it's most likely because my engine control module (ECM) got use to running a certain way and it probably needs to be replaced as well. The manual says the ECM should be under the steering column support bracket but, it's not there . I cannot for the life of me figure out where any of those parts are located on my Chevy 454. I've read several threads and see that the TPS is usually on the throttle body (TBI) but, cannot find it. I'm also confused since it has a carburetor and is not fuel injected. Does anybody know where I can find those components? Or any other suggestions on what could be the problem? I'm beginning to think that since I do not have a TBI and instead it has a carburetor that I do not have an IAC, or an ECM and the TPS is located in the carb. Am i right? Also, why does it die ? Anybody have any suggestions as to what I should check? It seems as though the fuel filters are getting plenty of gas. So, my thought is that it may be somewhere between the fuel filters and the new mechanical pump. ANY HELP WOULD BE VERY MUCH APPRECIATED So far I've replaced these components of the fuel system: vacuum hoses carburetor fuel filters several times mechanical fuel pump spark plugs and wires distributor cap and rotor Questions Recap: 1. ) Do I have an Idle air control motor, If so, where is it? 2. ) Do I have an engine control module, If so, where is it? 3. ) What can I do to diagnose the fuel delivery issue? Could it be a sensor, a pump, or a filter that I don't know about? Thanks so much for the help!!
I have owned my new Bounder for 10 days and the most unnerving driving issue I have is glare and window reflections impeding visibility as follows: I was backing my 34' Fleetwood Bounder into a driveway in a tree covered residential neighborhood yesterday afternoon and, with the passenger side window reflecting the image of a car parked across the street on the driver side and a high contrast of light and dark shadows from the afternoon sun and tree cover, it was impossible to see my backward progress into the driveway through either my passenger side mirror or camera. I had to exit the vehicle twice to make sure I was properly positioned. Fortunately, this was a residential neighborhood and I did not have traffic waiting on me, the driver, to stop the RV, exit the door to observe my progress, jump back in, and continue backing up, twice. Earlier that afternoon I was driving on a freeway with clear skies and the volume of light coming through the front windshield made it very difficult to see my speedometer. In addition, the contrast between bright sunlight on the road and the shadow of my RV made the side mirror cameras so useless that I could only rely the side mirrors. I'm not complaining; just looking for solutions. I love my RV and plan on full time travel in the US and Canadian west. Is there a window application I can apply to the inside of the passenger window so that reflections off of it do not impede my view of the passenger side mirror? Is there something I can do to reduce the amount of light flowing through the windshield so that I can see my speedometer without a flashlight? Thanks for any advice to a newbie.
Driver error here, hit a tree stump with the bay door on the water.sewage supply. I would also buy the smaller door in front of it if available. Posting this from Mexico, will be back in AZ for Escapade. I-net is very poor here, please reply to pmarno@gmail(dot)com
