RE: Bay door locks

Got up this morning determined to fix this thing. Downloaded the prints of the wiring diagrams and printed them out. Pulled out the electrical tool box and put new batteries in the meters. Ready to take on the world. Pressed the code into the key pad and BOOM! all locks worked! Tried the key fob and bingo! same result. All locks opened and locked as they were supposed to.I think it was a miracle-it is Sunday after all. Anyway, thanks to everyone who responded. Pretty difficult to trouble shoot something that isn't broken. Scratching my head on this one....Dennis

RE: Bay door locks

I'm gonna try to locate things tomorrow if it doesn't rain. Using the diagrams, I'm thinking a bad relay and/or an "issue" in the passenger side armrest which is where tons of wire hide out...I'll post on Monday what I find. Thanks everyone...Dennis

RE: Bay door locks

Is there power going to the locks? Yes on the passenger side. Only sometimes on the driver's side, and only in lock mode. Not in unlock.

RE: Bay door locks

Any chance the programming got erased or changed on the driver's side? Is it a dip-switch programming or RF/IR programming? Maybe a temporary loss of power to that side? Not familiar with the setup, but just guessing that there may also be a small button-cell battery on the remote locks. No dip switches..everything goes thru the key pad which is programmed. That said, the key fob works independently of the key pad which would indicate the 'issue' lies within the wiring of the coach. Thanks for your input....Dennis

RE: Bay door locks

Thanks for all the suggestions so far. I looked at the diagrams in the Monaco manual and it indicates the circuit goes from the PS front bay to the rear of the coach and then over to the DS. However, it does not show the 'switch' on the engine hatch. That switch has been broken for years and appears to be one of the plunger style switches. I just wired that switch together and it's worked fine until now. I've checked the continuity thru both sides and it checked ok. One thing that happened the other day was in locking the coach with the key pad, both sides locked but only the passenger side would unlock. I'm also at a loss as to where the fuse(s) marked DS ACT and PS ACT are located. Would those be in the front run bay? TIA...Dennis

Bay door locks

All right..I've searched to high heaven for an answer to my problem. Maybe someone on here can offer some advice. I have a Monaco Executive 45PBQ with auto bay door locks. The bay doors can be locked either by pressing the key fob remote or pressing 555 on the combo by the door. Pressing the other button on the remote unlocks them. You can also do so by entering the correct code in the code reader. My issue is this... Last week the driver's side bay doors decided they wouldn't cooperate with the passenger's side. When I depress the button on the key fob, the passenger side doors open like they should, but the driver's side ignore the command. Using the key pad and I get the same result. I've checked all the pin switches on all of the doors and they appear to be working correctly. I've checked the breakers, the GFCIs and all of the fuses, front run bay, rear run bay and closet. All fuses checked ok. Anyone have any ideas? The keys open the bay doors and lock them as they should. That said, I'd like to get the remote locks working again if possible. This only affects the driver side of the coach. TIA... Dennis

RE: Legally avoiding California Sales Tax

My only comment in this mess would be to suggest the OP research Kalifornia's laws relative to residency. From his statements, it sounds like he'll be a Kali resident whether he likes it or not. Six months in their State makes you a resident. Working in the State, makes you a resident. I think if you breathe Kalifornia air, you're a resident if they can tax you for it....Dennis

RE: Jacks won't go down

Since it now quit, I'd say you've blown a fuse, so I'd start there. Before replacing the blown fuse, remove the new install and start over. Obviously your 'mechanic' needs to restudy the wiring in your coach....Dennis

RE: Couch out the door

If my residential fridge fit thru the side window, I'm sure the couch will also. It's bolted down, remove the bolts, strip the cushions off, open it bed style and slide it out. You'll need at least three people, preferably young and strong...about the only thing the door is good for is entering and exiting the coach...Dennis

RE: Surge Guard w/ ? Power pedestal - how do you handle this?

I always check the power pedestal BEFORE plugging my rig in - period. That said, I also trust the Surge Guard protection more so than most of the people I've seen that work on the pedestals in campground. I had to teach one of the techies in a Washington campground. Before hooking up, I notified them the pedestal was hooked up wrong. He questioned it and I showed him on my meters where it was wired wrong. He pulled the cover and sure enough, the wiring was not correct. Trust your surge protector....Dennis

RE: Towbar/tab failure

Just out of curiousity, did you drill those extra holes. I've never seen BlueOx tabs with those holes. It appears they caused the weak spot which in turn caused the failure. I just received my new tabs from BO. Great people. I replaced mine as I noticed some ovaling on the attachment holes which made me nervous. Now I've got new ones as we get back on the road this Sunday...:)...Dennis

RE: Satelite

No one is going to steal it. A) We are all RVers out here (unless you park on the beach in Huntington, CA) and (B) there is no value to the antenna in most any market other than us RVers and I am NOT going to buy an antenna from that traveling antenna salesman! There's a story attached to that, as there usually is..:). We had our remote dish destroyed by a fiver that decided to go off road. Try finding another dish when you need one. I went to a DirecTV store and the lady said they didn't carry them but suggested I find a vacant house and take it off the roof! I said no thanks, bullets hurt. After searching recycling places, I finally found one at a thrift shop. $10....Dennis

RE: Class A with seating in back

Lots of coaches still come with the seating "dinette". Nice thing about them is the storage under each bench. When doing your search, look for or add a filter with 'dinette' in the search box. You'll most likely have to add the seat belts if that's important to you....Dennis

RE: Trading in a motorhome with water damage

Something to consider; esp with the suggestions of killing off the shrooms and trading it in. There's no guarantee your 'new' coach will be any better than the one you're trading in. If you like your coach, fix it and move forward. Just my 2 cents...Dennis

RE: Monaco

If I were to ever have to get rid of my Monaco product, it would be to "upgrade" to a Prevost. Even at that, it wouldn't be much of an upgrade. I have over 90,000 relative trouble free miles on our coach...I sold my previous Dynasty with over 130,000 trouble free miles, so yeah! I'm pretty pleased with the Monaco line......Dennis

RE: California vacation

FYI Hwy 1 is closed to your vehicle at any time. 40' max length. HINT: The CHP looks for your tag axle. Easy giveaway. Same with most of CA 49. Below is the link to the CalTrans map. A citation is not the way you want to remember California...just sayin..BTW, it's not that they don't want you to see their State, they do need your money. The restrictions are in place as the roads are too curvy and you'll have to cross the double yellow line in many places just to get by..be safe...US101 is your best bet north or south. I5 is just a quick way to get there, not much to see or do.....Dennis CalTrans road restrictions

RE: Satelite

I've been waiting a loooong time for someone, anyone, to give some authority driven information relative to SD programming being phased out. DirecTV continues to say they have no immediate plans to do so. IMO, there are way too many customers using and happy with, simple SD programming. Much easier to set up SD programming if using a remote dish too. IF someone, especially those who continue to post this info, has some authority driven info, please provide it. Thanks....Dennis

RE: TPMS - Flow Thru or Non Flow Thru Sensors

I rarely have to add air to any of my tires, so I, like many others went with the TST non pass thru system. I've had their system for 8 years now. 3 with the old 510 system, (non replaceable batteries) and 5 with the 507. Satisfied with both systems. I believe they are the only ones with the pass thru system. With that said, to answer your question; How often do you add air to YOUR tires? If often, then consider the pass thru system. If, like most of us, you rarely do, then go with the 507....Dennis

RE: GFI issue in bathroom -trips 3 recptaces - will not reset

If I read his post correctly, he's replaced the GFCI THREE times already. With that, the assumption the GFCI is "bad" is the wrong assumption. To go further, I'd suspect he has another issue and the GFCI is doing what it's supposed to do. There are two ways to trouble shoot. One is to trace all the wiring feeding OFF the GFCI. This means all the wiring AFTER the switch. The other method and most likely the easiest is to disconnect everything from the outlets feeding off the switch. If it still trips, then the problem is in the coach wiring. I'd start with the outside TV outlet. I'm assuming this is a factory install and not a DIY TV. These outlets are more prone to weather and water intrusion which causes corrosion etc. They're also easier to get to. From there, check any other outlets in your bays including any in the engine compartment. Best of luck in exorcising your demon.....Dennis

RE: Tire Pressure ???

^^^^^^^^^^^^^This is the correct answer. Does your tire "guy" know the actual weight of your rig? Four corners is optimal but second best is axle weights....Dennis Toyo Inflation Tables
