RE: Have no electrical power and no propane on one side of coach

Made it home safely, when I got to where we needed the heater, I found a wire hanging off the propane tank that apparently went to the gauge panel to tell me how full the tank is. Got home and plugged coach back in to my 110 plug and all seems to be working now. Will have to check the power connection next trip to Texas.

RE: Have no electrical power and no propane on one side of coach

Turning on the generator has given me back the missing power, so do you think the transfer switch is failing. We are in a rest area 150 miles from the New Mexico border and heading home.

RE: Have no electrical power and no propane on one side of coach

Thanks for the many suggestions. I should have been more specific, we are staying with family here in Texas. I am plugged in to a 30 amp plug just to keep things charged up, that’s why I was trying to run the appliances on propane so as not to take too much electricity and that is how I came to find no 120 V power on passenger side of coach, save for 1 outlet in the bedroom. I am going to try and locate transfer switch in the morning before we leave and check voltages. Will let y’all know what I find, but the kids have to be back to school Tuesday so we gotta get going.

RE: Have no electrical power and no propane on one side of coach

IS IT POSSIBLE FOR THE INVERTER TO BE BAD ON ONE SIDE AND GOOD ON THE OTHER

RE: Have no electrical power and no propane on one side of coach

The power issue is either a GFI outlet that has tripped or the inverter. These are the outlets with a red reset button on them. You may have only one or two on your coach. The other thing to check is the circuit breakers on your inverter itself. Most usually have two circuit breaker buttons that can trip. These are on the inverter and NOT in your main circuit breaker power panel. I should have added that your salesman switch, usually by the door, may have be switched off which would keep 12 volts from going to either the WH or the furnace. With no 12 volts, neither will work. 50 amp service, 2 switches on inverter, do not act like breakers, no click when moved, could 1 of those be bad

RE: Have no electrical power and no propane on one side of coach

Need help, 1800 miles from home, I have lost the 120 volt power on passenger side of my 2001 Fleetwood Discovery and the propane does not work to the heater or refrigerator. The other day I started the coach as the batteries were low and let it run for about 15 minutes. I also Reset the a/c out 1 and 2 on the inverter and when I checked the bathroom lights, they came on. I releveled the coach and shut off the engine. As it got dark, I turned on the heater and it was working fine. Came back later to put the boys to bed and heater was blowing cold, ignition failure on the hot water heater and again no lights in bathroom.. Any advice as to what is wrong, we need the heater going home as it will be colder. Merrill What is the salesman switch , what does it look like

RE: UPDATED: Arizona (not Nevada) roads question

last week I traveled I 40 east in Arizona and the road was terrible. I am a motorhome towing. Next week I have to travel it again. Can anyone tell me if I 10 would be better? I could take that and connect back to I 40 via I 25 later. Does I 40 get better after Arizona? .Thoughts? thx We drove 10 to Texas back in June, road wasn’t too bad but getting there via 93 from kingman was horrible, much much worse than 40. My opinion FWIW.

Brake controller for my diesel pusher

Would the prodigy wireless brake controller be a good choice for the electric brakes on my trailer? Looks like the right choice to me, but I am a novice at this

Traveling From Kingman, az to near San Antonio, tx

We want to go back to spring branch which is north of San Antonio, Texas for thanksgiving. We went there this summer taking 93 south to Phoenix and I-10 east. 93 is one of the worst roads ever driven on and I-10 was long and lonely. I was thinking about taking 40 east to Albuquerque and 25 south to 10, unless there is another route toward San Antonio. Any suggestions from you guys that travel all the time Merrill

RE: Reno/sparks, Nevada service center

The service manager at the Sparks store, denied that it could have happened there, but Corporate has told me, they will pay for the repair. Fat fingers, what can I say

RE: Reno/sparks, Nevada service center

Got the motor home back yesterday afternoon, and this morning discovered a deep gash in the fiberglass just past the slide out on the driver side rear. Sent pictures to service guy that answered the phone this morning. He said he would pass it to the manager on Monday, we’ll see. $589.00 to diagnose and tell me system was out of Freon, which I already knew before I took it in

Reno/sparks, Nevada service center

For anyone with a diesel Motorhome, if you are ever in the Reno/Sparks area of northern Nevada and need maintenance, I do not recommend Velocity Truck Center, the Freightliner dealer in Sparks. I don’t have a comfortable feeling with their Motorhome section. My fleetwood discovery is a freightliner chassis and has a bad dash air compressor. I took it in yesterday morn for my appointment at 0900 and they still have it. May change my opinion after I get the bill, but probably not. Rocky Mountain Cummins is a much friendly place for service

RE: Towing weight limit

I am trying to find a toyhauler and they all come in at 6-7000 pounds with matching tongue weights. That would be an enclosed trailer ? Unless you need something HUGE, I don't think an aluminum one would be anywhere near that heavy. Of course, part of that might be the load; what are you needing to carry ?? We still have 11 kids/disabled adults at home and I am trying to come up with a solution to avoid having to setup/tear down tents when we go camping,. We carry the additional stuff for all of us and sleeping for 6-8. I am seriously thinking about a cargo trailer conversion to a bunkhouse. This would give us the extra bed space and cargo space and allow me to stay under the 5000 pound limit.

RE: Towing weight limit

Thank you all for your input, I have found a toyhauler that could meet our needs and is under 4000 pounds. Will update . Thanks

Towing weight limit

I have a 37 foot 2001 fleet wood discovery with the 325 CAT engine. The manual states that the hitch will handle 5000 pounds max with 500 pounds tongue weight. I am trying to find a toyhauler and they all come in at 6-7000 pounds with matching tongue weights. My question is will I damage something if I am over the limit by a couple hundred pounds on the tongue at 6-7000 pounds
