RE: Carefree of Colorado awning part

So is that actually just a window awning they used on the door? No, it is a box type with a motor. DougNo, I think I have the box type, and they are still in production and don't use a strut. I'm talking about the one Executive posted, which is a Carefree electric window awning that they may have used for the door. I ask, because I was about to go on the hunt for that type of awning for my windows, but if they no longer make it, I may have to go to the box type. I looked up his sig model. I have never seen that type Carefree with a motor. ALL the Monaco's we sold and I worked on had that style but were manual pull out no motor. They are NOT really window awning model with a motor as the arms had to be angled to fit the entrance door. Window awnings(motorized) will have straight arms. That may have been a Monaco Sig series exclusive from Carefree. He should be able to get a strut aftermarket. I doubt it is a hi psi strut. Doug

RE: Leveling Jack Fluid

These fluids will work with any hydraulic levelers and will help with jacks that don't retract well because of sticking seals. Also helps with intermittent 'popping' noises when deployed. http://www.lci1.com/assets/content/support/technical-information-sheets/0295.pdf This is a Anti Sticksion additive and is only needed on LCI systems with the settling and popping problems which is very rare. You do NOT need this additive for older jack systems or other brand systems. Doug

RE: Leveling Jack Fluid

Lippert uses power steering fluid for their level up system. Yours may use the same. From LCI's manual. Doug PS where did you come up with this? Lippert recommends Dexron III ATF or approved equivalent for hydraulic fluid.

RE: Leveling Jack Fluid

LACK OF FLUID IN THE JACK SYSTEM WILL NOT CAUSE RETRACTION PROBLEMS ON SPRING ASSISTED RETRACTION JACKS. I do NOT understand why people think lack of fluid will cause retraction problems. ONLY if you have Power DOWN and Power UP will lack of fluid may cause retraction problems. The OP could have Powergear/RVA/HWH jacks. The OP needs to look at his Dash Control panel and the system will state what brand. Until he posts what brand jacks NOBODY can give him any help at all. Doug MOST jack systems use standard Dextron 2/3 ATF. HWH fluid is Dextron without the red dye added. NO jack system uses Hydraulic fluid.

RE: Roof hole size for AC

The control board is mounted to the upper unit in front of the evaporator. It is removed and reinstalled on the new upper unit. Doug

RE: Roof hole size for AC

Your AC is a RVP/Coleman. It is BEST to use the same brand when replacing or installing a new extra AC unit. Not required if installing the 2nd AC, but IS required if replacing the existing as the controls do not work on other brands. Doug

RE: AC prepped?

Thanks Doug, sounds like you've been down this road before. I work for a Jayco Dealer/Service Center(20 years as a Jayco dealer and 38 years as a Tech). Doug

RE: 210 series leveling jacks joystick

Is there a reset button? No reset button on this system. Doug

RE: AC prepped?

Jayco runs the 120 wire to that roof vent area. They also have a knock out to connect to the existing ducting. Depending on the model, they may have the tstat cable run from that vent to a common wall area, but you have to call Jayco for the exact location for your model. You will see the wiring if you remove the 4 screws for the inside vent Garnish. You will have to connect the 120 wire to the 20 amp breaker in the main breaker box. The wire is usually just bundled up behind the breaker box. You pull the breaker box to find it and route it into the breakers. Doug

RE: 2004 Holiday Rambler both A/C units stopped working

1. 5 Button tstats rarely fail. 2. You did not state IF you had a display on the wall tstat. DO YOU? 3. The 5 button CCC uses a Phone cable type communication and is extremely difficult to test without using a test cable. 4. The Roof AC units run off 120 power and the tstat runs off 12 volt power from the FRONT Zone 1 AC unit. 5. Odds are you have a corrosion issue at the front Phone type cable at the front AC connections. This is probably true if you have Lo Profile Penguin units on top. 6. I would NEVER use a OEM support for my diagnosis and troubleshooting. They are NOT trained Technicians on the phone. 7. IF you have no tstat display then the odds are the problem is at the front upper AC unit communication connections. Doug

RE: Duo-therm model 57915.541 ducted unit not cooling

We waited about 15 minutes. When the fan did run the compressor never kicked in. I am thinking it is best to replace the unit. I am fairly handy and would like to tackle this myself. Would there be a benefit of upgrading to a 15,000 btu system? Which model would you all recommend. Thanks for the advice so far. You may have 2 problems. Or just 1 problem. The top unit is just that, The top unit. The control box and the wall tstat are separate parts. So, if you have a Tstat/control board problem, a new upper unit will not fix anything. YES, upgrading to the 15k is a good move for what extra dollars they cost. B59146.XX1J0 is the 15k model of your unit. Ducted or non ducted makes no difference on the upper unit. Doug

RE: Dometic Comfort Control Center 2 Thermostat

Thank you! We are not getting any errors. I think there were just too many cooks in the kitchen. We have to start over from scratch. I have to do a reset sometimes when a customer brings it in. They have tried to program so many things, the only way I can quickly get the unit to respond is to reset and erase all the previous programming. Also, if you have a CCC2 and you show MORE zones than what you have, the OEM did not do a reset at the factory and if you do a reset it will erase all zones not installed on your RV. Doug

RE: Duo-therm model 57915.541 ducted unit not cooling

Because it won't come on at all in auto mode, I suspect the thermostat. They probably did not wait long enough, for the Fan to come on. Doug

RE: 210 series leveling jacks joystick

Solenoid is on the pump/reservoir assbly. Doug

RE: 210 series leveling jacks joystick

Usually, when a 100 or 200 system pump fails to activate, the solenoid on the Pump is defective. All the Joystick does is send a Ground signal to the solenoid. To check the pump, you jump across the 2 large terminals on the solenoid with a large screwdriver. If the pump runs the motor is GOOD. You then look at the 2 small wires on the solenoid. Test for 12 volt positive. Once that terminal is located. jump a ground wire to the other terminal. If the pump does not run , then the solenoid is bad. If it does run, then the ground wire from the Joystick is open somewhere(very rare). Doug

RE: Splendide Ventless W/D Comments

Well, MY experience has been with BRAND NEW Ventless Splendide. NONE would dry completely and we had to replace 3 with vented and after that we would not order or install a Ventless Splendide. These were NEW, and obviously NOT needing a pull and service. Doug

RE: leveling jacks

If anyone else has had issues like this and what was the repair? I thought you and Equalizer determined the repair? Doug

RE: leveling jacks

Buy the parts, install them and move on. What else did you have in mind? You could try e bay for the parts. Doug

Yes, you can do what you want. That is the main feature of the TrueCharge system. Doug
