      George,

      There should be clips or brackets on the side or top that release to open up the box. If you do not see a hinge then the whole face lifts off. If there is a hinge, then it can only open to the side.

          Hello Elaine,

          We unfortunately don’t have any information on replacing the slide flooring. This is a rather tough task and the room has to be removed to gain access to the floor as most systems are on rollers and you can’t gain access to the screws that hold it in place. Removing the slide from the RV is a large task in it’s own. You have to make sure to take everything off of the slide that touches the floor first. The best way I have found is to take the slide out all of the way. Cut 2×4’s the length of the roof of the slide to the ground, this has to be done on solid ground as well. You will be using these to create legs for supports. You want to screw them into the slide side walls in the same area the fascia pieces are screwed into making sure the boards are touching the ground. Once you have a leg on either side you can remove the interior fascia pieces and backing boards until nothing is blocking the room from coming out. Then with the help of other people guiding the legs you can extend the room out until the side walls are flush with the exterior wall of the RV. You then make legs for the front and install the same way. Once you have 4 legs total, run the room out just enough to clear the floor off of the ground or rollers. The floor will have large screws around the perimeter going up into the side walls. Depending on the slide mechanism you might have to remove the slide arms and brackets too. Once all of the screws and brackets are removed the floor should come down. You can replace in reverse order. Again, this takes a lot of time to do and can be very tough but it can be done.

    Our RV has not run in the last 6 or 7 months! We had an alternator put on back then, then a little later we lost all of our 12 volts from our
    Starting battery. No current to the ignition, the front lights, radio, or anything! It has a new battery, and alternator. (All house battery and
    12v. And 110 volts are fine, problem is only with front 12v. ALL OF THE FUSES UNDER DASH ARE DEAD, EXCEPT ONE 30 amp. ?
    Any ideas ?

      Charles,

      If there is no power to the fuse panel you will have to check the battery connections and trace where they go. Most of the time when this happens it is from a bad connection somewhere from the battery. I have also seen many ignition switches fail as well so you will want to test the voltage there and connections as well. If you have a switch to connect the house batteries to the chassis battery (many RV’s do not if there is an isolater switch) turn this on and test it. If it now gets power you know the issue is with a bad connection from the battery. If it still does not work then the issue could be with connections to the fuse block or something through the firewall.

    Just spending some time resealing compartment doors along side of unit. Used The Right Stuff for that. Going to replace weather striping around cabin door soon and crimp connection to inverter. Looking for hub caps that’ll “enhance” appearance. So far , touch wood, no mechanical issues…..only 50,000 miles so shouldn’t have any, but…Generator works but noisy, fridge works well. Have satellite dish on roof that I want to remove. Will need to repair hole after that and when ready will seek advice. Then it’ll be all about detailing and replacing decals and logos. Unless of course, something goes awry in the meantime. Stay tuned. See you later.

    Just a quick Vent..I fixed most of the wrongs….At 400 miles the Generator had to be rebuilt. (Under Warranty) Step would go in and out at random. Dealer claimed it was fixed. It was not. Lever on Driver Seat broke. I ordered a new lever and cable and fixed it myself. A/C has to be on FULL to get cold air. Water leaks into compartment below when raining. If I need anything done on the chassis I have to drive 180 miles. RR Hydraulic leveler goes up about 2 inches after initial setup. I believe I’ll need to reset the level system. Inverter works sometimes when on the road. I believe I got it fixed. Shower leaks at the door. I fixed the seal at the bottom. Last but not all the problems…Found A LOT of saw dust in the overhead vent in the bedroom. Was blowing all over when running A/C…

          Hello Leon,

          Thank you for your patience while I reached out to the expert, here is the reply:

          It depends on what fridge you have but if you are using the standard boiler RV fridge it typically only operates on electric (from shore power only) or on gas. Some people like to operate it on gas while traveling but you do have to be careful as you will have an open flame on the exterior of the RV. You can’t pull up to a gas pump like this. You would have to turn off the fridge before filling with gas and then turn it back on after leaving the pump area. There are also local laws you have to pay attention to depending on where you are traveling. Certain areas, especially areas through tunnels, don’t allow open propane containers while traveling so during areas like this you can’t operate the fridge. They are well insulated so they will stay cool for a while during travel if you got it cold before the trip. If you do choose to operate on gas you have to be very cautious while traveling.

    We were first time motorhome buyers & purchased what we “thought” was a pretty good mh. We’ve had some major brake issues but hopefully have that fixed. From watching many videos, I see we have some outside bubble (water damage). I dont see any inside. I’m now having trouble with my batteries. If motorhome is cranked, lights inside will come on, but if not, lights are very dim. What do you recommend? Also, I see I need to remove and reseal everything, so what type sealer should I purchase? Thanks for any & all suggestions.

      I am sorry to hear about all of your issues. The bubbles on the outside could be water damage but could be other things as well like glue coming off or a screw from the inside pushing outwards. It is best to check the roof and everything else in that area and make sure it is all sealed. To re seal things you don’t have to remove them, you can just seal over any exposed openings in the current sealant. We do offer a video showing different types of sealants that can be used, I will share the link below. It is just important not to use silicone on the roof. Make sure to use an RV lap sealant on the roof for sealing. As for the batteries it sounds like the house batteries are not holding that good of a charge. There are two batteries, chassis and house. The chassis battery starts and runs the engine and also charges the house batteries. When the engine is turned off the house batteries are what powers the living area. If the lights are dim on the house batteries you will need to test the voltage after they are charged and make sure they are holding a good charge. Local auto parts stores can test the batteries and let you know if they are good or not.

      There shouldn’t be a shut off valve. The only thing that is common is your fuel tank has to be at least 1/4 full for the gas to flow to the generator. If your tank is below 1/4 it will not send gas. This is to prevent the RV from being stranded if the generator would use all of the fuel. If your gas level is fine then you want to look into the fuel filter. This is going to be inline from the fuel line around the pump. If this is clogged it will prevent it from firing up as well. Other things that could cause it would be bad fuel pump or varnish inside the carburetor. I would start by checking the fuel filter.

      It really depends on what type of trailer you are pulling and how much it ways. If you are pulling a single axle and is less than 5000lbs you only really need sway control with your truck. If you are pulling larger you will have to get a distribution system rated for what you are going to be pulling. They are all made for certain weight ranges so you have to decide on a trailer first. You can get systems that integrate the sway control with it or have it separate. The best system out there is from Equalizer. It is weight and sway built into one and with 4 points of sway control contact it is one of the best on the market. They hold up very well and are easy to take care of. Husky makes one called Centerline that is nice too, better for heavier trucks than light trucks so this would work fine for you as well.

      It is best to has your system tested for a gas leak first to make sure it safe. If you disconnect your propane tanks and leave them off for a few hours check the system again. If the CO detector is still going off, most likely it is failing and needs replaced. These can not be fixed and can fail every so often so if it keeps going off when you know there is no gas connected to the system it is best to replace it.
