1990 ford econoline 350 motorhome has 2 batteries those batteries are for the engine or for the motorhome


They are for both. both run the motor home and start the engine. They are there for short term use for the motor home electrical. Your motor home has to be plugged in to an outlet source for long time/engine off use.

I have a 1990 jayco motorhome that is powered by a Ford f-350 econoline with a 460 ci motor. I need to know which fuse is for the cruise control?


I would guess a 1990 E350 Econoline Van Owner Manual would have the chart. ISn't it on the fuse panel cover?

If you have no luck, let me know and I will try to search my archieves.

Need to find a diagram or layout of the belt system in a a Ford Econoline 1987 E-350 7.5l Motorhome/RV


have you try ed looking under hood? if not located under hood check door jamb . if that don't reveal anything of help go to a parts store and ask them to print out a diagram. If that don't work find a van the same year as your motor home and most likely the belts will be ran the same way. you may need to go to a junk yard to find it.

Overheating


If you are adding anti-freeze every time this happens, you are still loosing coolant some were. I assume there are no puddles on the garage floor or where you park the van? Check the oil dipstick and make sure the oil is not a "milky"color. Check the passenger side carpet for wetness, you may have to pull it back.
If all of that is OK, you are still burning the coolant by way of the intake gasket or head gasket.
Good luck, let me know.
Regards,

2003 Pontiac Montana antifreeze smell?


Bad News. I recently had the same type of smell ( no leaks or puddles either) coming from my van and had to have the intake manifold gasket replaced due to the Dex-cool issue. It appears GM installed an inadequate/substandard gasket when they built the van. My van only had 65,000 miles on it. There's a Dex-cool settlement you could have applied for but repairs had to be made by May of 2008.

This is the only real complaint I've had with the van.
