RE: Cabover/Euroloft Bed - Suspension Strap Broke

RE: Where do you Post Campground Reviews?

I also post on Campgroundreviews.com (formerly RV Park Reviews). I also use the site for finding campgrounds. I have found it to be very helpful.

Cabover/Euroloft Bed - Suspension Strap Broke

While driving out to the coast for the weekend, I heard a noise above my head and a part fell to the floor. The part was the plastic cover to the strap mechanism. The loft bed had dropped down and was dangling. The corner strap (looks like a nylon seatbelt strap) had torn all of the way through. This is the strap that raises and lowers the bed on the drivers side, close to the slide out. It has four corner straps. Fortunately, the bed didn’t hit me in the head while I was driving or have this happen when someone was sleeping on it. I’d like to be able to fix it myself. Has anyone had this happen and how was it repaired? I’m giving thought to removing the bed completely.

RE: sequoia national park

We've stayed at Sequoia RV Ranch. You can get sites on the Kaweah River (small river). There is another private park close by. I think it's called Sequoia Campground & Lodge (formerly Kaweah Park Resort). There is Lake Kaweah close by. Call ahead to Sequoia Ranch RV as there may be a high water level from runoff from melting snow. They had a lot this winter. There may still be snow in Sequoia National Park at the higher elevations but still worth the trip and the roads should be clear. It's over 100 Degrees this week in the lower Valley.

RE: Blue Beacon Truck Wash and paint protective film

We have the protective film on the front and have been to Ble Beacon twice. We've had no issues with streaking. Horse doc - what is CC?

RE: Inverter Doesn't Turn On

Found the problem!! No 12volt to the inverter as the battery cable terminal to the inverter circuit breaker in the battery compartment had snapped off! When I opened the compartment to look for a breaker, I saw the cable broken and pulled away. I wouldn't have known the breaker was for the inverter otherwise. Thanks again to all for your quick responses. I just wish that Winnebago had placed the inverter in a more accessible location to troubleshoot this problem on the road!

RE: Inverter Doesn't Turn On

Thanks everyone for your help. I think I need to wait until I get back home and troubleshoot to see if power is coming into and out of the inverter. In the meantime, I will look for a fuse.

RE: Inverter Doesn't Turn On

Enblethen- I’ve read the manual and it states to check the power at the inverter. Unfortunately, it’s too difficult to get to and we’re traveling. I’m hoping to find out if there is another fuse/circuit breaker somewhere else to check.

RE: Inverter Doesn't Turn On

I’m thinking that it may bypass the gennie but not when on shore power because I have lost power to the receptacles fed by the inverter before while on shore power. At that time, I reset a breaker on the the inverter itself.

Inverter Doesn't Turn On

I'm dry camping and tried to turn on the inverter and am not getting power. I have the Xantrex XM1000. It worked fine 5 weeks ago when dry camping. I was able to use all of the AC plugs when I was hooked to shore power several days ago. All of the AC plug receptacles work when the generator is on. The GFCI plug on the inverter and the 15 amp button appear to be okay. I plugged/unplugged the cable from behind the remote panel and still no power at the remote panel. My question is if the inverter is bad, why would the plugs work with the gennie on in the RV. Or, could I have a bad remote panel? It plugs into some type of inline coupler.

RE: Slideouts Work Sometimes don't Work

David, you provided some good info that makes sense. We’re both all set up at a campground here until 1/14 and the slides are out. We’ll check out the leveler light when she leaves. We did look at the manual. Redlands RV is checking it out when she gets to Quartzsite, AZ. We’ll keep you posted. Thanks again for the ideas for troubleshooting.

RE: Slideouts Work Sometimes don't Work

OP here. Thank you for the ideas. The batteries have been maintained and checked as previously posted. I don't think that the switch is the issue because the radio and USB port also didn't work. My friend has made an appointment with a repair shop to get this checked along with another issue.

RE: Slideouts Work Sometimes don't Work

Thanks for the replies. Interesting about the ignition...wouldn't that also affect the starting? We tried the battery boost switch to get the slides out and it didn't make any difference when the slides first wouldn't extend. The battery posts are all clean with tight connection. It's the battery brackets that have the corrosion on them. I did clean it off.

Slideouts Work Sometimes don't Work

I'm camping with a friend who owns a 2004 Adventurer 38R (Class A Motorhome) that has a hydraulic bedroom slide and an electric living room slide. When she departed from her destination yesterday, the slides retracted normally. She drove about 3 hours and when she arrived yesterday, both slides wouldn't go out. The engine was running and the parking brake was engaged. The dash radio and phone USB port wouldn't work either. Today, Took the RV to have the two 6 volt house batteries checked by an auto mechanic and they were fine. The slides wouldn't work at his shop. After she drove back to the RV park, the slides went out with no issues. The radio also started to work again along with the phone USB port. I had noticed yesterday that there was a lot of corrosion on the battery brackets and they were a little loose when I looked at the battery. What could be causing this intermittent problem? Could there be a loose wire/ground that is causing this and where would it be located?
