  1. I am having some problems with my truck, got it back from the shop and all was well for 68 miles. I stopped 2 miles from my home at the local quickie mart. Got back in the truck and it wouldn't start. Then waited, tried again. no start. Jumped out and jumped the solenoid and it started up for the last 2 miles home. In the driveway I waited and tried it again - no start. Graphic screen goes black. jumped and started up. I finally got it to start up again after jumping the solenoid, and I finally got an error code on the display that stated DIRECTION INDICATOR FRONT.

  4. I have a 1999 VNL 610. Just installed heated massaging seats. Prepared to run new circuit but wondering if anyone has found the wiring harness that would have powered the seats? Truck did not come with heated seats so maybe they never ran the wires though my "Circuit Hound" seems to indicate that there is a wire under the floor pad at the back of the seats near the opening for the air line. Thanks, Roy 1999 VNL 610 2005 Teton 40' Forester Grand

  12. It's been some time since we have updated... First we worked on the power panel by the entry door, this is a modular panel and laid out and functions much like aboard a large yacht. Since the overall interior is small all control and switching functions are carried out on the panel, almost every switch is also a breaker. Click For Full-Size Image. Click For Full-Size Image. There is an inset shelf at the bottom of the power panel with outlets to charge cell phones etc. Back side of power panel is accessible because whole wall is on hinges Click For Full-
  13. Hi Everyone! I am looking to see if anyone has any advice or has been through this before. I have noticed that my truck gets warmer than I think it should when pulling hills. I start watching the temperature gauge slowly climb while going up a hill to the point is turns on the "check" light as in the pic below. This only happens when pulling long grades with an outside temp over 75 degrees. Once or twice, it has warmed up as far as to trigger the "stop" light and displayed "engine coolant temp too high". but, mostly it just gets to the warning in the picture and stays there, then when I

  16. This is a basic battery question. It happens to be about our 2013 Volvo also, but the answers would apply to batteries in general. Just one of a few threads I found: The dealer tested the batteries 750 amps. Any time we climbed in the truck it always started and no problems I could tell. Someone may have left a switch on last weekend. Today it will only turn over once then stops. I plugged in the shore power and turned on the inverter. (It was not plugged in all winter but started every 2 or 3 weeks and run for 15 minutes or so) Hoping the inverter can bring the batter

  25. Thanks for all of the info and experience you have all posted on this forum, I've learned nearly everything I know about HDT Rv haulers from here. I'm up to page 95 of the 117 archived here. I have just purchased a 2000 Volvo that has a Cummins ISM mated to a Gen 1 Autoshift thats having problems. It shifts fine and engages into gear when its cold, after 10 minutes or so if it is taken out of gear it will not engage again. It didn't do it on my brief test drive, but the seller and his mechanic both describe the same problem. Seller says if truck is on slight incline and can roll just
