RE: A couple questions about my 1996 Bounder

Sound is normal. No sound is bad. Best to run on the top half of your tank. The generator fuel tap is about 1/3 to 1/4 of the tank. Not a good idea to run the generator out of fuel. (could be hard to prime etc.) Also good to keep the fuel pump covered with fuel to keep it running cool.

RE: 30A Circuit Breaker at house tripping

The EMS I was talking about is the PowerLine Energy Management System. The panel on the "One Place Monitor Panel" see page 6-3 of your Winne manual.

RE: 30A Circuit Breaker at house tripping

I would set my EMS to 20 Amps. This will limit the A/C to one compressor and Fan/blower to low speed. I do this with my 50 amp. Winne when plugged into 25 Amp. service outlet. Works just fine. (Plan to install 50 amp service this year) If your wiring can handle it you could upgrade to a 35 or 40 amp breaker. With a 30 amp RV outlet. You need to monitor your voltage..If below 120, this could be your problem. As voltage goes down, amperage goes up.

RE: ems

What year MH? Are you plugged into 50 Amp service? Does the EMS monitor show a zero or nothing at all? If you have a 50 Amp MH, plugged into 50 Amp service the EMS will not show anything. Not needed. Try a 50 to 30 Amp adapter and you should get a reading or use the generator. (Turn off the A/C before switching power***switching under load can cost $$$) Do you have a Manual? If I had known what year you have I would have added a link to Wennabago Ind. Manuals are free to download.

RE: Floor tile sliding

Floor was not cleaned before tile was put down. Pull up a tile and look. You will have to remove and replace. Not a hard job.

RE: :h - TOOL's Let's talk TOOL's - :@

WOW! Forgot to add duct tape and wire ties, When all else fails, These will get you home. Been there and done that.

RE: :h - TOOL's Let's talk TOOL's - :@

I suggest a multimeter, a 1/4 drive socket set with US and metric sockets, Wrenches both US and metric (Up to one inch to start) and a magnetic screwdriver with good set of tips (20/30 or more types) Get the good stuff. This will be the start of the tool kit that you will depend on. The most used tools? The manual and the screwdriver. The multimeter and the knowledge to use it, is next.

RE: Curious....anyone buy a motorhome in their 70's

When I was a kid of 73 I was working full-time spoiling the grandkids and putting miles on the motorhome. Lots to see and do. Still at it almost ten years later. Get out there and enjoy. What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger.....Works for me. (I've been told, however bears will kill you. So I just take pictures and keep my distance) Trying to cut down on doing stupid stuff, but DW says I'm still at it. My grandsons ask me what will happen if we do this or that. I say, well let's try it. (We have a deal. I don't tell their Moms and they don't tell Grammy.) You are never too young or too old to learn.

RE: Location if AC Dash Air Drain 06 HR Navigator??

On mine I found a plastic cap with a small hole at the end of the hose. The drain hole was blocked with a little bit of foam. (the hose was full of water) Used a shopvac to suck out the crud. After everything had time to dry out, I hooked up the shopvac again and got more crud out. Been good for five years now

RE: Black Tank Vacuum Breaker

From the picture, I would say the black wire tie is putting the Vac-breaker in a bind. It does not take much to jam plastic valves (Over a period of time). I would replace the tie on just one line and see if you can tie the other in a way not to put the valve in a bind. Now to fix the valve. (With water OFF) Remove the valve, the fittings should be very close to finger tight. If not, that could be part of the problem. When you get it out. Carefully open the check valves (should be easy to tell what is stuck). Lube with plumber's grease ONLY. If it frees up and seems that it should be OK.(If not replace) Reinstall, FINGER TIGHT and leak check. If you still can't get flush water into the black tank. It's time to attack the check valve where you attach the hose to flush system. That is where I would have started. This check valve normally fails OPEN but you never know. (Make sure you don't have a plugged screen washer, failed pressure regulator or something like that) I also hope your not using your drinking water hose for all this. Let us know what you find, please.

RE: Need New House Batteries - HELP!

I was in Costco yesterday and Interstate 6 volt flooded batteries were around $100. You can buy a lot of those for $1600. I use four 12 volt interstate batteries and never had a problem (Off line). But thats me.

RE: Level - Store Switch

If you did not get an "InfoCase" from the dealer(Not Winnebago??). You should contact a Winnebago/Itasca dealer to buy at least a manual and Leveling Operation Guide. You will need both. I carry a laptop and have everything I could find on line saved on a flash drive. This in addition to a hard copy manual for the MH and Toad. See the Leveling System Operation Guide provided in your InfoCase for complete operating instructions. It also contains additional precautions, technical information, and instructions for manual operation if a system failure occurs. NOTE: When parking at an uneven site, always park the front of the vehicle to the downhill side. This allows you to level by raising the front end rather than the rear. Since only the rear wheels are locked while in PARK, raising either one or both of the rear wheels off the ground could allow the vehicle to roll off the jacks.

RE: Level - Store Switch

From Winnebago Ind. 2012 Sunova manual. Auto Level Remote Switches: In addition to the Leveling System Control Panel, there are two additional remote switches for your leveling convenience. These switches allow you to extend or retract your jacks and observe them at the same time. It also allows you to stop them suddenly, if needed, without having to climb in and out of the coach. The Auto Level Remote switches are located just inside the entrance door and in the exterior service center. HOUSE/COACH BATTERY DISCONNECT SWITCH (COACH BATT) The House/Coach Battery Disconnect switch lets you disconnect the house batteries from the 12-volt system of your coach during storage periods to avoid battery drain by electrical items that are hooked directly to the house batteries, such as clock displays and radio memories, etc. Always leave this switch ON while using the coach. NOTE: Some electronic displays and memory functions may need to be reset after power has been reconnected.

RE: Level - Store Switch

Read page 10-11 your manual. Manuals are on Winnebago Ind. web site. https://winnebagoind.com/resources/manuals/pdfs/Operator2012/12Sunova.pdf

RE: Water heater 110v light not on

If you have a 30 amp outlet available. Use your "dog bone" adapter and plug in. Now you will have an amp readout. Simple way to test. Run some hot water, you should see about a 10 amp draw when the heater is on. Since you had two showers and did dishes and still had hot water, I'll bet your switch lamp died. This is very common. When mine goes again I will get the LED update.

RE: Portable Satellite

https://winnebagoind.com/resources/manuals/pdfs/Operator2015/15Sightseer.pdf Follow instructions in section 8. Your manual. Satellite dish connection is next to the cable connection. (Water service center) See page 8 - 7 for receiver hookup.

RE: TOWING A MINI COOPER

2003 Mini Cooper ALL FWD I4 1.6L cyl 5-Speed Manual Manual No formal testing has been done on the 5-Speed Manual Transmission or the 6-Speed Manual Transmission. Remco has never heard of a problem towing these vehicles. Please confirm in your owner's manual, and follow the outlined procedures for towing. Remco accepts no responsibility for Transmission damage. Cut and paste from Remco web page. http://www.remcoindustries.com/Towing/Store.php Good Luck:) http://www.technomadia.com/2011/11/a-mini-adventure/ http://www.miniusa.com/content/dam/mini/PDF/archiveownermanuals/MY02-07/2003_Owners_Manual_Hardtop.pdf

RE: Steps not going down

Use extra care working on the steps! If they deploy while you are under them. They will crush you. If they close with any body parts in the way. They will have no trouble removing said body parts. Make sure all power is removed. Then it's a good idea to pull the bolt/pin between the motor and the steps. This will allow the steps to open. Then you can get to the control box and the ground points. On some units there is an inline fuse near the motor and control box. There is also a plug on the motor. GOOD LUCK++++BE SAFE

RE: Yukon river crossing at Dawson.

We crossed with our toad connected and a few cars plus a 40+ foot tour bus next to us. You will not have a problem.
