RE: Ceiling lights on '16 Vista LX

Get your meter out and start looking for a bad ground, bad switch, or bad power connections. How many lights, how controlled, 12 VDC or 120 VAC? Is there a dimmer for these lights?

RE: Brake light fuse

You need to find the "freight liner" AFT fuse box. May be in the bay with the power cord. Mine was under a hard to remove cover.(I installed a removable panel after finding it) It looks like the FWD fuse box, but the cover is screwed on. Inside are fuses and relays. There are several flat plugs going to it. Also has the fuse for the tow plug. The coach builders like to hide this fuse box. Has been problem for a lot of people.

RE: Entering the coach on one foot.

Sorry to hear of your pain. But look at it this way. Follow the Doctor's orders......In a few weeks you'll be running up those steps like a kid. DW has been there and done that.

RE: Urine Smell From Half Bath Toilet

Gray water tank can smell real bad. Flush it out, then add Pine-Sol. The powerful scent stuff. If you smell Pine-Sol in the bath, you need to check the vents. If no change add Pine-Sol to the dumped black tank and smell check. Dry P trap on the washer can also cause problems.

RE: Need to find Chrome Hub cover Lug nut cover with nut...

(Winnebago, Destination DP, FreightLiner.) I found that 1-9/16 fits perfectly. Bought socket at a master mechanic tool supply. Makes checking oil filled hubs a snap. Had new tires installed and the guys had to use my socket for the wheel covers...strange?? Made sure they used my breaker bar not an impact wrench.(I don't carry a lug wrench....When it comes to tire change/repair, I call Good Sam.) Just to be certain, take the covered nut with you to a tool supply. I know you are looking for the cover...Good ideas on other posts. But, 1-9/16m socket fits the nuts holding the wheel covers, with the nut covers installed. The wimpy tool supplied with some MH is not up to job.

RE: Whole house pressure regulator

The problem with installing a whole house pressure regulator in the coach, is that your hose is is required to withstand the high pressure. Most can not handle more than 100 PSI for very long. The site gets flooded or the hose blows up like a football. I have seen water pressure as high as 185 PSI and spikes even higher.

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: hydraulic Jacks not working

Recheck the last thing you did.....Works more times than you would think.:S

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.
