RE: 2008 Citation Chateau M26BE electrical issues

Have you turned the 12 volt cutoff switch back on from when it was in storage? My switch is near the entrance door. Also for pushtoy - my slide works with the motor running as long as the parking brake is engaged.

RE: 2008 Citation Chateau M26BE electrical issues

I agree with bobndot that first check is battery-both coach and chassis. suggest that you set parking brake and start the engine then check slideout operation, if it works then chassis battery might need replacing. My step runs off the chassis battery, but will retract automatically when engine starts.

RE: Looking to purchase used class c rv - first time buyer

The length of the unit and interior set up depends on your family size and use. I would suggest that you go to manufacturer's websites to see what interior set up you would be comfortable with. Remembering that you cannot have everything perfect. Next find a seasoned RV'er friend to go with you when you check out these used class C's. Some may look great, but there may be some things that you miss that your friend would not. Most important drive it to check handling and any engine problems. Ads in papers and internet always sound good and my look good but need to be checked out carefully. Do not be in a hurry unless you find the right one quickly. Good luck

RE: can't find drain

Find your water tank and follow the pipes leading out. In my situation the water tank is under the bed and the drain valve can be accessed through an opening in the base under the mattress.

RE: Nightmare experience with RV service center

Any consumer should get a written estimate before any work is done on your home, car, or motorhome. If they charge for diagnostics that charge should be in writing before any diagnosing is done. Getting several estimates before work is done is common sense. Then you can choose which company is to do the work. Getting scammed apparently is part of life lately and getting back at the scammer is, I think, the correct thing to do.

RE: Insurance recommendations for Class C

My motorhome insurance jumped up by over $400.00 last year. No claims ever. Found Progressive to be less than half of what I was paying and they offered more coverage. Check them out along with others before deciding.

RE: $$$ to maintain and repair?

No luck at any salvage yards. E-mail from Winnebago - do not have the encoders (actuators) and cannot get them nor manufacture them. Repair facility in discussions with Lippert was advised to by-pass the encoders and wire the motors directly with new switches for each motor.

RE: $$$ to maintain and repair?

Thank you for your suggestions about my slideout. I have contacted three RV salvage yards by e-mail or phone and two do not have any slideout parts. the third is still looking. My repair facility contacted Lippert who bought Kwikee and they were not helpful. Maybe they did not buy up parts-all they said that those parts are no longer available. Hopefully they can come up with a part that can be used.

RE: $$$ to maintain and repair?

I have a 2004 Winnebago - like new inside and out. My only problem just happened with the slideout not working. Had to crank it in by hand. Repair company diagnosed the problem and cannot get the parts as they are now no longer making them. The failed parts are the actuators to both motors. Getting parts is the main problem with older units - although I do not think 15 years should be so obsolete that companies no longer make parts that may fail.
