RE: Purchase hesitation after deposit, 2 questions

Looks like caulk has not been maintained. Several areas showing cracks in caulk. Probably has leaked and is still leaking. No way I would buy it.

RE: Buzzing transfer switch

So today we were headed out for the week. I decided to take off the cover to look at the relays. Pretty simple as there were only 2 screws holding on the relay cover. Manually actuated the armature numerous times. Since this ATS is basically new, everything looked pretty pristine inside. Put together a set of tools to take with in case surgery was required. Got to the campground and plugged in and no buzz. Everything worked fine. So either that fixed the problem, the problem is intermittent, or the threat of surgery scared it into working. Thanks all for your advice.

Buzzing transfer switch

Replaced my smoked transfer switch with the same model. Southwire/Surgeguard 41300. This is a basic model. My MH is a 2018 Class A Vista LX 27N. Replacement was pretty easy and straightforward. This was done last October just before it got put away for the winter. This spring brought it home and plugged it in to 15A circuit and it worked fine. First trip of the year it worked fine. Took a trip just after Labor Day and plugged it in and it buzzed like crazy. Ended up cycling the pedestal CB and after 4 or 5 tries and the buzz was gone. Was the ok for the rest of the week. Thought it was just a fluke or perhaps it had something to do with higher than normal pedestal voltage. Was reading 127V. Plugged in again at home after the trip and it was ok. Getting ready for another trip this weekend, plugged it in only for it to start buzzing again. Plugged and unplugged a few times and all was well. This is on a15A circuit reading 117V. Any ideas what’s gong on?????? All wires are tight and properly torqued. Bought a torque screwdrivers just for this purpose.

Putting new decals over old.

I have a 2018 Winnebago Vista 27N motorhome and a couple of the silver decals have spots on them that looks much like the mold you might see on Diamondshield. Otherwise they are in great shape. They are firmly adhered with no cracks. All other colors on the MH are fine. Can I put new decals over the old ones? I would probably use a different color just in case the spots might telegraph through.

Slide seal detached

So here is my problem. 2018 Winnebago Vista class A motorhome with one slide out seal that has either detached or was never attached. The reason I say that is there is no sign of any tape or glue on either the rubber seal or metal piece that it should be attached to. I first noticed this when I saw a portion of the seal getting torn by the slide out track. I have identified the seal on etrailer and it appears it should attached with double back foam tape. Anyone had this problem and what did you use to fix? I have looked at some 3M VHB tapes but there are dozens of choices and you can’t buy small quantities. Should I just replace the seal entirely?

RE: Crack in gel coat

I would get a can of automotive clear coat. Mask it off to just expose the crack and spray away. If it’s a small crack you want something fairly liquid to fill the crack. The caulk may also work but I would be afraid it would attract dirt and look bad. A body guy told me the least intrusive method would be to give it a good coat of automotive wax. Of course it would have to be touched up from time to time.

RE: Wow, 6 months wait for a Chevy-Tahoe

Ordered a Ford Transit Connect van. These are built in Spain. Just showed up last Friday after a 7 month wait!

RE: New truck build time

I ordered a Ford Transit Connect van and today marks week 27 since order. I was told 10 to 12 weeks even though it is built in Spain. ETA is now May14. No one can explain why but after seeing things on the news, the worldwide semiconductor shortage is real. Ford is still building trucks but is just parking them until they get a critical module to install.

RE: No power

Last fall we got into some weather that was about 20 degrees while using the heat pumps. Got up at 3:00am to the smell of electrical smoke but everything was still running. Did not expect it to run at that temp. Upon investigating in the morning found the transfer switch had fried. Guessing the heat pump was pulling a bunch of current and the contacts may have been loose. Loose contacts is a known problem and should be checked every year. I went out and bought an inch pound screwdriver just for that reason.
