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.

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.

RE: Genset (2016 Tiffin RED PA37) won't start.

Flashing light on the start switch and rapid clicks? Sounds like your fuel pump is priming. When the fuel pressure builds up the starter will kick in. Hold the start switch down longer and it will start...15-20 seconds, That is, if you have more than 1/4 tank of fuel. The fuel tap for the Gene is at about the 1/4 fuel level in the tank. That prevents the Gene from using all the fuel out of the tank.

RE: Garage for Class A

All I can add is a pit so that I could work under the rig. My grease pit has a lip that holds 2x12s to cover it when not needed. Best investment I ever made.

RE: Head light up grades

Question. Did you read the voltage from the back of the socket, with the lamp installed? Lamp must be in place to load the wires and get a true reading.

RE: Condensation in slide corner

Had the same problem with bedroom slide. Used water hose, no leak. Moved MH to covered storage, still had water in the closet(overnight). Used my inspection camera through the light fixture hole and found condensation on the closet roof. Got a small dehumidifier at Wally World, problem solved. Have added insulation put still use the dehumidifier. That keeps the MH fresh and not like an owl's nest. Moved back outside, still no problem.

RE: screen door shade

Had the same problem. I sprayed silicone (slide lube)between the shade and the cover and on the ends of the roller then played with it, till it unlocked. Then it rolled up. Then pulled it out and sprayed the fabric (lightly) and wiped it down. Had to do it again a year later (seems I didn't do a thorough job) It's been great for three years now. Seems that dust and dirt will jam the shade against the cover. I did not try to remove the shade from the cover. I could see that would be a handful. I hope you are talking about a black, smooth fabric shade. If not ???

RE: Front wheel bearings while towing

Ford Explorer front wheel bearings have a high failure rate, under normal driving conditions. I don't think towing had anything to do with it. Some were found to have little or no Lube. Ford almost had a recall. There is a service bulletin. Replaced front bearings and rear bearings and seals on DD's Explorer. (1 Front bearing failed so replaced both. Rear bearing seals leaked, so replaced both) So far so good.

RE: No power from shore or generator, ok on inverter, need help

Have you checked the breakers on the inverter? DW would try to run our microwave with the space heater on. No matter how many times she tried it would knock to power off. The inverter was under the bed and I had to remove a cover to get to it. After a few times I installed a little door to get to the two breakers on the inverter itself. Good luck....Let us know what your fix is.

RE: How do you winterize water heater OUTput pipe?

If you have used air to blow out the system before adding the pink stuff it's not a problem.

RE: Here I go again...

Assuming you have HWH jacks on your Winnebago product and assuming they have not changed since I had one, you may be able to stop this from happening by not shutting the system off at the panel after raising the jacks. Let them time out on their own. Dont know why this works but it was what I was told and it worked for me at the time. X2 Hydraulic fluid expands as it gets warm. This will move the jacks just enough to turn the warning on. After I started letting the system "time out" I had no more problems.(Winne with HWH jacks)
