RE: Another HWH Leveling System Problem

As you stated originally, your problem was intermittent and then it completely failed. You jiggled some wires and it now works. Once you go in transit that loose wiring will jiggle loose again and you will be in the same boat. The multiconnections on the control box are weathertight and have locking tabs to hold them secure. You need to take the Plexiglas cover OFF and tighten the few screw secured ring terminals. Doug I haven't reinstalled the cover. I will try to secure everything before buttoning it up, if possible.

RE: Another HWH Leveling System Problem

Hello Campers, To those of you following this thread (and care) today I: Turned the ignition to start as usual. No lights lit up on the pad (original problem) or in the control box (something new today). Started to do the troubleshooting again from step 1. Opened the control box (plastic cover). Checking a fuse, I had to move some of the wires in the box, NOT disconnecting anything, just jiggling wire around. Had lunch. Turned ignition to start as usual. Touch pad lit up. Control box lit up. Everything appears to be working. Any more comments? I appreciate all the expertise on this topic. Thanks.

RE: Another HWH Leveling System Problem

1. Have you removed the touch pad to verify that the multipin connector is connected and secure? 2. The touch pad requires Ignition(or acc) power to power it up. Have you checked that source via the online HWH service manual? 3. Your post is unclear. I believe you stated NONE of the LED lights on the touch pad come on regardless of the slide rooms operating. True? 4. There are 2- 12 volt solenoids at the HWH pump mounted on the motor. The primary, which the main battery positive cable connects to is the "power on" solenoid. THAT solenoid is what is activated by turning the key and touch pad on. The 2nd solenoid just activates the pump motor for hydraulic pressure. Do you have the rectangular control box with the clear plastic cover? Have you removed the plastic cover to check the various fuses AND the tightness of the various machine screws that secure the wire terminals on the circuit board? 5. Have you tried pushing the touch pad buttons REALLY HARD? If you have no LED lights at all when the key is ON, then forget this. Older touch pads get bad contacs and you have to push the buttons extremely hard which means you replace the touch pad. 6. The control box does not really control the slide operation, so your control box may be burnt out. Doug 1. Yes, I checked the connections to the pad. 2. I checked the power at the touch pad connector. It is less than one volt. Don't know what it should be. 3. No LED lights come on the touch pad except the "Travel Mode" light when I activate a slide either in or out. 4. Haven't checked the solenoids. The slides work fine. 5. Yes, I push hard. There are no lights coming on the touch pad except the "Travel Mode" light when I activate a slide.

RE: Another HWH Leveling System Problem

Thanks to everyone. Lots of good ideas so far. Keep them coming. In answer to one question, my rig is a DP, 400 Cummins ISL, on a Spartan chassis. I am familiar with New Horizon RV in San Mateo. I have furnished a good part of their revenue stream over the past few years. Good guys, but I try to do some things myself if possible. Will get them working if something is not found. I have checked the voltage at the touch pad. It is less than one volt, which says maybe the control box is not doing its job or a connection is bad. One reason I didn't think it was a ground problem is that both the control box and touch pad have the same ground according to the schematic. All the required lights in the control box are lit according to the troubleshooting matrix. Comments on this?

Another HWH Leveling System Problem

I have the HWH 625 automatic leveling system on my motorhome. The touch pad does not respond or light up to any commands, auto or manual. The slides work fine and the little light comes on when I operate the slides. Brake is set and transmission in park. I have tried ignition switch in start, acc, and off. The system worked fine in the past, but became intermittent, and now nothing at all. Yes, I have downloaded the service manual and gone through the troubleshooting matrix. There is not anything in it that covers my specific condition. All the required lights in the control box come on as required. Yes, I know that I can call HWH and wait 2 to 3 weeks for a return call and advice. I would like to know if anyone on this forum has had the same problem and/or some suggestions to test the system or possible fixes. Thank you.

RE: Electrical Problem

See, All of those problems can be bad ground issues. Get a 12v test light and go to the thing that have problems and check that the test light has a good ground and then test the power connections to what ever. If there is power there, then look for power on the ground side. If there is, then follow the ground wire down to the rusty connection to the frame. Matt I would say this is the answer except that all these various problems started at exactly the same time. They could not have the same ground. Also, the headlights work sometimes.

Electrical Problem

On my 2004Winnebago Ultimate Freedom: I turn the headlight switch on ---- no headlights, dim or bright. Running lights on. Right turn signal works, left no. Flasher won't flash. Brake lights work. Have replaced running light relay and switch on column. No change. Dim lights come on, and stay on, with wrong type relay from autoparts place, so bulbs and ground are good. Can not see any loose or bad wires. Please help.

RE: around SLC

Sounds like a lot of extra driving. Stay on I-15. Just avoid rush hour. We go to SLC (that's Salt Lake City) often. Opinions may vary. The drive from Delta IS beautiful.

Franklin, NC to Lake Toxaway, Highway 64

Anyone have experience on US 64 from Franklin to Lake Toxaway in the North Carolina mountains? I will be driving a 40 foot DP pulling a Jeep Liberty. Planning this trip in mid September.

RE: AM I WRONG???

We have done just that at Orlando International Airport to drop off someone at night, and then leave in the morning. There is plenty of room in their remote lot. We didn't ask permission. You might get on Google Earth and check out the lots for size, capacity, entrances and exits, etc. Most major airports have a lot that is accessible to large vehicles.

RE: Ski trip in a Motorhome. Am I crazy?

1) Should I even attempt this or try and find a hotel or VRBO instead? 2) Can my rig handle the cold weather of winter at elevation for a couple of weeks? 3) How am I going to drive around on snow or icy roads? 4) Where should I camp? Should I boondock? Are campgrounds even open near ski lifts? 5) If I camp, should I keep my hoses inside and only hook them up temporarily as needed? Our experience: We have usually driven out to SLC every year over the holidays or late winter when the slopes are still open. Have relatives there. We usually take five days to get there, in our leisurely fashion. A couple of times we have had to wait out a storm. Stay in an RV park in the valley. Drive our Jeep Liberty to Alta or Snowbird. Can be putting on skies usually within 45 minutes to an hour. Have never seen a MH in either parking lot for good reason. I usually fill up on Diesel before getting to SLC. I fill water tank as needed. On previous MH I put colored lights in tank areas for heat, but current one doesn't need it.

RE: RV Parks near Salt Lake City

Mountain Shadows, in the south metro area, is an urban park, with all the advantages and disadvantages that the term implies. We have stayed there many times since we have family near there. The sites vary a lot. If you have a large MH or towable, you could be in trouble.

RE: wife's motorhome

About 10 years ago my DW said "Why don't we get a motorhome, dear?" That night she got on eBay and bought a 30 foot Dolphin class A from a dealer in Arizona. We are now on our third MH, now up to a 40 foot Diesel.

RE: Draper Utah Good Sam Park

We have family in the area and have stayed in this park many times, since it is the only one close. (There is a KOA near downtown SLC.) Agree with some of the OP's points. Some of the sites are unusable for a large rig, but we now have a map and always know what sites to request. The office staff are usually good about this. For a first time overnighter, it can be a memorable experience. Don't agree about the people. We have never felt unsafe. But there ARE all kinds, as you might expect in a large urban setting. On the good side, there is a large dog walk area.

RE: Replacement Faucets

I always try Amazon first if it is anything close to standard, which most MHs are.

RE: Mountain driving and towing with a gas class A

We had an Infinity 38 foot MH with the Ford V-10, and always towed either a Chevy S-10 or Jeep Liberty. Can't say we did ALL the passes, but we traveled all over the western US and parts of Canada for 5 years. My wife would sometimes say on the way up, "are we going to make it?". We always did, and had a great time.

RE: Vancouver BC

thanks. looks interesting. do they have full hookups? Yes, they do. Some people on rvparkreviews.com complained about trains, but I don't understand that. The tracks are across the river. We were never bothered by any noise.

RE: Vancouver BC

We stayed at Fort Camping in the Brae Island Regional Park near Fort Langley for a few days about 3 years ago. Don't know how close you have to be to the big city, but we liked this place.
