RE: Rain on slide toppers

Have that problem as well, in fact it cost me a slide topper and $$$ as I had to get a mobile RV repair to come to the rescue. Since it has finally been rectified...I made me a "tool" to use to brush the water off the toppers after a rain, no matter torrential or not. I constructed it out of a pole (3/4 inch conduit or PVC would work) made an elbow at the top-6-8 inch 'arm', another elbow with 1-2 inch 'down arm' to which I connected a broom head. Works wonders..sure I turn heads when I use it, but also I have been asked if the neighbor or the 'lookers' could use as well. It stores all in one of my pass thru compartments. Can you take a photo of it? and post

RE: Jacks

Well i got my jack to work again. I had my wife work the joy stick up and down and sprayed the jack shaft with WD 40. After several extensions and spraying the jack now works normally. This was a relief. Thanks for all the comments. I thought my solution may help someone else. Might be better to spray it with a dry silicone. or the dry style of wd 40. I do it every month.:C

RE: back-up camera

It is pretty much plug and play. You'll have to hook up a ground and power wire. The hardest part is running the wire from the front of the RV to the rear. I guess that is my question. If a MH already has a camera and monitor, can you use existing wires? ,etc.

RE: back-up camera

How much tech knowledge is required to change out the camera? is is somewhat of a punplug plugin kind of thing...:h

RE: Experts in things turn signals,brakes , etc. electrical

Wow, I'm impressed, YC1! You nailed that mystery fault right on without even seeing it. How great this forum is. I never crow very loudly, I am begging to like the taste of crow. :B He has not fixed it yet and the spray he used will just make things slippery. One just has to sit down over a bucket with the end of the connector inside and remove the little screw that will get lost when checking each end. I have overhauled my cords many times in 35 years. It is amazing how funky they can get in one season. Since I am not real handy with electrical kind of things, I was going to go look for a cord...but are you saying I may see the issue if I take the ends off the cord? If it is a ground, how do I know which it is? BTW the turn signal turned for either right or left does the same thing.

RE: Experts in things turn signals,brakes , etc. electrical

The cruise cuts off because it thinks you stepped on the brake. Which way do you turn the signal to make the cruise quit? Either way... When setting still (here in a park), I turn on the turn signal...it flashes correctly, then I step on brake and it stops...I then pulled the umbicale (sp) cord out from the MH and the turn signal keeps working...sounds like it is the cord...I had electrical spray and it didn't help...so must as fellow above says...is probably a short..

RE: Experts in things turn signals,brakes , etc. electrical

You may have a short in the toad umbilical cord or either the coach socket or the car socket. If there is a short, indicated by blown fuses, you could have feedback to the brake line thus telling the rv you are putting on your brakes which would turn the cruise control off. Yes it could be intermittent so take each end of the umbilical apart and open the sockets on the vehicles. I have some of the electrical spray...could that help...I guess I could check that now that I am parked by taking the umbilical cord out of the MH...Is that what you are referring to?

Experts in things turn signals,brakes , etc. electrical

I will try to keep this on point...Left home and everything was working fine...stopped at a rest area, turned the MH off, came back and started up again...about a mile down the road noticed the cruise control would not engage...pulled to the side of road and turned on the flashers...alas flashers not working...checked outside stop lights...none...So got out the workhorse chassis book and found two fuse blocks...one in the MH in dash, and one under hood. the fuse for the stop and flashers was on the outside block. changed it and the one for the cruise control and took off...both now work.... HOWEVER...when I turn on the turn signal the cruise now kicks off...and that is my dilemma...any suggestions??

RE: Tire covers & Wiper/Mirror Covers

I got away from the vinyl tire covers and went to the ones that I attached to the ourside of the MH...The tires are shaded with sunblock material, but don't have the heat that the vinyl ones keep on the tire..here is an example...mine are white.. Author is "Mentor" about 3rd message down

RE: Satellite Director

I think maybe I need to phrase question a little better...Satellite Director is a phone app to use to help determine line of site for your satellite and once in a while I pull into a site and it maybe marginal for a satellite. I then will try to use Sat. Director to determine best parking location so that I can determine if my winegard will be able to see. However, when determining which Directv sat to find there will be several listed for each...ie there maybe 2 or 3 sat. for 101...and to use the Director we have to check a sat. My question thus is which ones?

RE: Satellite Director

Ours comes in on 101,110 and 119. This is the house. MH has auto Winegard dish and switches to different birds depending on station selected. It will depend on your package. Mine (in MH) uses the same on Winegard, but several 101 for instance.

Satellite Director

For those using both SD and DIRECTV, what satellite numbers do you search for use in West if that makes a difference

RE: No power to jacks

Solved the issue... You know how sometimes you will read something and it actually hits the brain differently...that was the problem... I kept reading chassis battery and thinking house battery, and I had taken picture of house battery cable configuration, so knew it was right... HOWEVER...it finally clicked that the chassis battery was the chassis battery, and lo and behold I had missed a wire...hooked it up an woola.. :S .works thanks to everyone for their input...

RE: No power to jacks

National connected the Leveling PUMP power thru the Coach Battery disconnect. That means the touchpad will light up, but the actual power to the pump will not be there if the Coach batteries are not turned on. When these type things come up---IF the Jacks worked prior to the battery change out, then when you changed the batteries you must have missed a battery connection or mis-wired a connection at the batteries. Doug The Jacks worked last time we used them, but didn't deploy in the 5 months of storage. When I changed batteries, I took pictures so that I would not forget what went where..all accounted for....The touch pad doesn't light up, nor is there power to it nor the jacks

RE: No power to jacks

Check near the batteries for a large circuit breaker that feeds the hydraulic pump. It may have been hit accidentally while changing the batteries. It may look similar to this one: http://i.imgur.com/QfQ0lyrl.jpg width=250 any idea of location that it may be found?

RE: No power to jacks

They are hydraulic

RE: No power to jacks

Just changed batteries. Look to see if you missed hooking up power wire to jacks. I have about 4-5 wires to hook up to batteries ,it could be easy to miss one if it fell out of view while hooking them up. Let us know what you find. checked and have them all hooked up
