RE: Trailer Brakes HOT after adjustment

For a while I had some self-adjusting and some manual adjust brakes. The self-adjusting drums would measure 120 degrees while the manuals were around 90 degrees after a 2 hour run. I since have gone to all manual adjust brakes to keep the temperatures down. You really don't want to adjust them to rub a bit like the self-adjusting always do. To test bearings & braking I would jack up one wheel at a time and check for just a very slight wobble in the bearing and then pull the emergency brake cable to engage the brakes. Then spin the wheel forward to determine how far it rotates with the magnet energized before the brakes apply. Never got over 1/2 turn before the brake shoes stopped rotation by hand. No need to have things so tight you get unneeded friction and heat.

RE: Slide out question

My Lippert slide has 2 motors that can get out of sync and the way to synchronize them is to hold the slide switch in until both sides of the slide are fully closed. These 2 motors are at the top of vertical drive screws mounted on the stationary wall on each side of the slide. The vertical drive screws connect to aluminum rails with teeth on each side of the slideout. It would be easy to count the teeth showing on each side. There is also a controller PC board that flashes codes when queried. Mine is nearly unreachable behind kitchen drawers which must be removed to access it. In the 10 years I've had this trailer it has never gotten out of sync but I always hold the slide switch for a couple of seconds after the slide is all the way closed. Perhaps your Lance is totally different

RE: electrical diagram for my 2000 fleetwood prowler

Often the breakers are labeled by the manufacturer. Is there a labeled clue for the breaker that keeps tripping?

RE: Leaking fresh water tank

I would suggest you go the plastic welding route for simplicity. An alternative would be going to http://www.ameri-kart.com for a new tank. Your tank may have numbers written on it that identify the manufacturer and tank model.

RE: Low Battery Voltage

Do you have a 12 volt compressor refrigerator? If so, what is the power consumption vs. the battery specs? Just one battery?

RE: brake shoes

I find that unusual. Did you buy the trailer new to know the brakes only have 10K miles on them? I find the self-adjusting version run warmer as the shoe is always rubbing and have replaced mine with manual adjust versions.

RE: 1996 fleetwood wilderness 37'

Since you are newbies to RV's it may help to locate a local club that may a have a member willing to help you become familiar with the ins & outs of RVing and your RV. Alternatively, perhaps someone on this forum lives close to you and can help. A mobile RV tech might also be a resource you could hire to get familiar with your RV. There's a lot to learn and then the fun begins! Other resources might be a local dealer or the host at a local campground.
