Re: New Owner, need help with switches.

Just a guess but the one on the right may be indicating a heat coil. Check to see if you have heated mirrors and see if they get warm when it is on. An engine block heater may be something to look...

Re: Slide circuit breaker

I am speculating!
It seems to me that the slide motor is running in an attempt to move the slide further. It cannot, so it is overloading the circuit and tripping the breaker. Is there a limit...

Re: Door Remote Fuse

Rather than use the hit and miss method pulling random fuses I suggest that you get a 12V light tester. You know, that thing with the ice pick looking thing and a wire with a clip on the end! Clip...

Re: GFCI and Level Panel

The tank gauges are notorious for being inaccurate. Especially the blackwater. TP etc will wrap around the sensor and it may not come off! You may have some luck with several different methods of...

Re: Door Remote

The problem is not the door lock but the remote will not activate the lock. The lock works as it should with a key.

Re: Generator wont shut off

A diesel will run as long as it has air and fuel. Shutting one down requires that you starve it of one or both. Most will have some type of kill switch that stops the fuel flow or stops the air. A...

Re: Out of Storage - Year 2

You are right about the costs going up. Fuel cost for the Toad will be cheaper as well. Florida Parks are not the cheapest!

Re: manuals

I have manuals, or should I say some paperwork on things like the refrig, TV's, furnace, etc.
