Have a 05 37c. Pace Arrow. Cant get front drivers side leveler to go up or down. They are electric Atwood model. Use a drill to operate it.......but the pain is that I cant get rid of the error on the panel. Have to manually raise and lower the other three legs using the buttons. Third time this happened. Before, I went under and wiggled the wires and it started to work. Ground seems good, Now, there is no response. Any ideas?

Sometimes just moving the manual retract nut on the bottom of the gear drive is enough to clear it up.
You can also reset the controller...forget the procedure, but it's available online if you don't have the documentation. At one point, I had to replace a jack because it blew a gear. Other than that, it's usually an electrical/controller problem.
All of the connections come into your controller which on my 36D is located on the drivers side under the dash. The wires are connected to the board on the side that sits up against the wall, and are notorius for corosion due to condensation running down the wall and onto the controller, particularly those connections. Get in there with a flash light and maybe mirror, and inspect the connections and make sure they're ok.

Dropped the motorhome off at the dealership yesterday. Now the adjuster will have to visit them and talk to the service manager to determine what has to be done to fix the water damage to the roof.
Hopefully they will cover all of it and not give me the "it's a maintenance issue"

Depending on the hill, normally it does good. Why do you ask?

HI new Pace Arrow owner here.

Read this whole topic it did take some time but well spent. It was rather depressing it seems I might be doing a lot more repairs than the modifications that I was looking forward to.

I have a 2008 33V (W22) not mentioned here but here is my Question.

Having what appears to be a bad ground problem with interior lights that do not work and make other light circuits glow. I do not see any other 33V's here but Fleetwood's should be similar. To cold up here to crawl around underneath yet. Are the circuits grounded at or near the fixtures or at a common lug point and where to look for them.

It could be a cold issue as it seems to fix itself after the furnace has warmed the unit up or may be I have jiggled enough wires or fuses.

Now I have have had the unit for a month not used it yet, but have been trying to get familiar with the systems on some of the warmer days. I am finding the wiring kind of a rats nest but all newer cars and trucks are as well.

In my Fleetwood all the interior lighting wire strings go to a fuse and grounding strip on a panel under a cover panel right next to the circuit breakers. (These pertain to the house, and the chassis stuff is under the dash and in the BCC).

Anyway, that panel then has a heavy gauge wire that grounds to the chassis.

But it's been awhile since I looked under that panel so perhaps those ground wires were for the AC. Worth a look though. If there is a ground strip, you might tighten the screws on the DC side.
