I bet the mileage is since an engine rebuild. No MCI 9 has that low of a mileage.

I think wg4t50 Dave's post is the best in this whole thread. That underlines the reality of the expenses related to owning and maintaining a bus. Parts and supplies for maintenance and repairs are expensive, period. The only way to save money is to do the work yourself. Or park it so no maintenance is required. Travel by private coach is expensive.

   I've found Vanner equalizer schematics on the internet in the past.  If it's just a stud it's probably a mechanical repair.       

     Thanks, Brian.  I haven't had a chance to take it off the bus and it's down in a place where it's hard to see but it feels like the stud is broken out of some part of the housing or other solid part.  When I can remove wiring to get to it, I will be able to see better.  Google pointed me toward some of the schematics and that should help.  But it would be kinda comforting to know that there's somebody out there who actually knows what they're doing when I get over my head (and I can get over my head in about 3" of them electrictron things).

Do you know the model number of your Vanner? I have an older one( probably 20 years old) which is a 24-5000 and I have some schematics for it.
Don't know if it help or not....

Hi Guys,

I have a problem with an older (maybe 14 years old) Vanner 3600 watt charger/Inverter. It has worked flawlessly for the last 12 years that I have owned my coach. However, the storage unit where I keep my Coach had a problem with their electrical panel and the incoming voltage went up to 138 volts. The high voltage wiped out my battery charger. however,the inverter portion still works.
I contacted Vanner to see if they could repair it, but its too old for them to mess with. And they couldn't  recommend another repair source. I talked with their service department and ask if I could get a schematic. They in turn ask their engineering department but after four follow up calls I gave up. It seems they don't want to release the schematic even though the unit is obsolete.
I have an electronics back ground and can troubleshoot/repair it. And a schematic would make it so much easier.

Does anyone happen to have a schematic?

       Does anyone have info on a place to repair a Vanner equalizer?  Someone has managed to break the 12V stud off the one on my bus and I'd love to fix this one rather than buy a new one!

(A couple of places have worked on this bus in the last few months.   Both of them swear that they didn't touch anything in the battery compartment but I'm pretty sure that the 8-D batteries that are in it - and which don't like to hold a charge - are not the ones that were in it a few months ago.  But what are you going to do?)

Thank you for the comments, Dave.

Educate me about how not to worry about the cost, PLEASE. Grin

Heck, I worry about everything in this endeavor. Roll Eyes   

    Yep, I need help with both of those, too!

Thanks Tom.  I know that is good advice.  I suppose its just the chance of such low mileage bus that has me entranced.

Jim, you made me laugh.  HR as a toad would be sort of like having a granny flat Cool.  Wonder if I could sublet it at the RV park?  Jack

One of the main reasons I bought my AMGeneral is that it is 102" wide. That extra 6" width really makes a big difference. Look for a MCI 102C3-much better bus-better suspension, doesn't lean as much. Good Luck, TomC
