Default Control Panel

Anyone know where I can get my hands on a 140-1179 Control Panel for the leveling system on an RV?

Wayne,


There is a long thread in this forum about how difficult it is to replace this module, along with some ideas on how to proceed with change-outs and substitutes.

Thanks again, Chuck. It maybe that I need on of those marine motors or something else. The mechanic is leaning toward the touch pad. Do you still have the one you mentioned (140-1179) in the other thread?

LOL...I figured so, but as my wife always says, "if you don't ask the question, the answer is ALWAYS no!" Thanks again, you've been a bundle of help!

Default Success!

At long last, success!! I was fortunate enough to locate a 140-1179 touchpad for my leveling leg issue on my motorhome. My mechanic reported that it solved the problem! So I can now level her out when she's parked! Now if he could just get the other things finished up....rear shocks and some wiring/dash light issues, I could actually bring her home and get all the goodies out the dining room!!! Soon to be a happy camper!!!

Regarding the spare tire question, I bought a very nice 3/4" torque wrench used on CL (that had recently been calibrated) for 300.00. I also bought a Milwaukee Fuel 3/4" cordless impact wrench and a set of 3/4" impact sockets. Last year I rubbed the sidewall of my tire on one of my rear tires while pulling into a tight RV space and the tire blew as a result. I was able to use the impact to pull the tire and rim, then rolled it into my TOAD (a 2017 Ram 2500 mega cab diesel) using (ironically) the same block wall I had rubbed it on. The other folks in the RV park were a little surprised that I not only had the tools, but could remove and install the tire and wheel myself. The impact was a lifesaver and the torque wrench came in very handy to make sure everything was correctly torqued down. Regarding the slides and other components, don't forget to check fuses and carry a few extras.

300 seems a bit loose -- most are rate at 500 ft-lbs.


Glad you got it back in service...did you have a tire service check the torque when you could drive it safely?

What size wheels do you have? In my research, I found that the wheels 22" and up require 500 ft lbs of torque, but the ones under 22" only require 150 lbs. Unfortunately, mine (according to the manual) requires 500 ft lbs (22.5 x 7.5 Alcoas). So far, I haven't found a mechanic that even checks the torque, they slap them on there with an impact as tight as possible and call it good. However, that concerns me, as torque can often stretch the threads to the point of stripping.
