Default 2007 Endura 6318

After hunting for a couple years, I just drove home a 2007 Endura 6318. Prior owners kept it in beautiful shape, but I do have a few things I need to figure out:

1) Shudder/vibration at 1500 to 2500 RPM, rate changes with RPM, intensity increases with throttle. Get it to kick down and it pulls cleanly. I'm thinking misfire but will take it to a shop for a proper diag.

2) Switch above the mirror controls, thought heated mirrors but the owner doesn't recall it HAVING heated mirrors. When he replaced the driver side mirror he didn't recall there being any wires.

3) The porch light, and light in the step well, what turns them on? There is a 'porch step light' labeled switch on the entry way control strip but doesn't seem to do anything.

4) Where is the fuse for the upper, switched acc outlet on the dash, above the cigarette lighter?

These rigs are all different but I may have some clues;

Switch above mirror controls...hmmm...windshield fan switch?

My porch light switch is right on the light housing.


My porch step light is down underneath and is amber.


Dash fuses are down by the drivers left foot.

Hrmm, no switch on my porch light housing, guess I'll pull the meter out and start chasing things tomorrow. I assume there isn't a wiring diagram floating around for these rigs? No cabinet lights working either... And what's that light green wire that's been cut under the bench seat where the converter/transfer switch live? Such fun mysteries... kinda.

Ok, looks like a lot of what I'm chasing is dead bulbs, so that's nice.

Code reader says 'Random cylinder misfire, Cylinder #4 misfire' so that's what I'll be chasing next I guess. I can find coil packs from $270 for 10 to $700 for 10 until I hit up Amazon at which point I get a listing for $45... for a 10 pack?!

On my -06-6331 theirs a group of switches by the coach enterance door. One switch controls porch/internal step lights, one switch controls steps on/off. This also controls the amber lamp under the steps. N
Not knowing the cab style you have. Mines a Kodiac. Heated miror switch is on the right dash .

All lights working save for the compartment lights, haven't figured out how those bulbs come out. I suspect they're wedge base but don't want to get too aggressive taking them apart yet. The prior owner had ALL the manuals in a nice binder so I was able to figure out the porch step modes of operation, along with the associated lights and it's all good.

Haven't chased the mirror switch but will break out my laser thermometer tonight to see if they are indeed heated mirrors. Fuse 32 sorted my accessory socket. Rig has an appointment for a full service on the motor / transmission, so those issues will be going away soon. That leaves me the following items to chase right now:

1) Ramp door was rebuilt, new door isn't a foam core, it's all plywood now. As a result it's MUCH heavier. It's got four assist springs in the hinge, looks like there is room for two more, how much of a PITA is it to add springs?

2) Same ramp door, the bar locks used to have little press in bumpers so it wasn't metal on metal when you closed the door. The upper bumpers have long since wandered off, so there isn't full preload on it to seal it. Anyone know where to get more of those bumpers, or a suggested replacement?

Ok, GS, what were you thinking? The primary stereo for the RV is the van head unit, ok. It's a bit odd having to put the van ignition into ACC to get music but whatever. Now, not setting the radio up to run off the house battery, or the power system so it'll charge the van battery when there is 110v available (shore or generator) when you've forced use of the van radio, that is crazy.

I agree, that set up lacks foresight. I switched my radio over and also provided a connection between batteries.

How much over-capacity does the converter have? Will 15A draw from an AMP-L-Start be too much for it?

Depends on your batteries.
