Default Power Gear Leveling System

Greetings and salutations from a newbie full-timer.

I purposefully purchased a 2007 Gulf Stream Tour Master to avoid the pain and expense of DEF and all its joys and pitfalls.

One downside of an older unit I've found however is a paucity of manuals for included systems.

I've done quite well but have run into a roadblock with the Power Gear leveling system. This one doesn't match any of the models I've found online. See picture attached.

I'm hoping someone here has a vintage Gulf Stream and can point me in the right direction or, better yet, share their manual with me.

Thanks in advance... and happy trails.

Same system as my 2007 Tour Master T40-C when I owned it. I will attach some information that I gathered. Hope some of these help. I know that this control module is no longer available from the manufacturer, and some folks on this forum have replaced pumps and controls -- so a search might turn up some specifics. I gave my last spare panel to someone on here that was looking to repair/reprogram it.



There are some trouble shooting techniques contained in the information I attached that will at least let you use it in a very manual mode...

Hi!

Yes, the GS hydraulic slide system is a challenge.

That being said, it's (mostly) repairable!

What specifically are you seeing?

Default Gulf Stream Tour Master T40-c

Keith,

Just looking for manuals to add to my collection. Thankfully I'm not having any issues. I just didn't know if it was automatic or manual for instance. This T40-C listed for $250K new so I wasn't sure.

I'm also looking for info on just what the "Artic Package" entails. I spoke to Gulf Stream and they were very vague (unsure) what the 2007 package included. I know at least one of the furnaces has vents into some basement compartments. I do not know if the pipes are insulated or perhaps wire-wrapped. I did find an electrical cord in the shore power compartment plugged into a receptacle. I don't know what it powers.

There is also an unlabeled switch with a pilot light in the kitchen that I have no idea what it powers. It is the only unlabeled switch in the entire rig.

To my understanding that plug is the block heater for the engine. The other should be the electric hot water heater. My hot water heater is both gas and electric, that should denote the electric is on when the red light comes on.
