    Sun Shade & Night Shade will now only partially function. They only partially operate in both up and down in response to action buttons . They respond to manual request but for some reason they will not fully open or close. I have followed the limited instructions provided in maintenance manuals but as stated they will not fully raise or lower. Therefore Coach can not be driven. Any suggestions before I call in a service request?

    We are relatively new to the RV world.having only been on 3 short trips. The last trip we noticed the RV moving more than other times after stabilizing it when walking around. I made sure we were level both directions before lowering the stabilizers. Could I be putting too much pressure on the pads, or, not enough? Do I try to slightly raise the unit when lowering the stabilizers to make sure they are firmly in place, or just firmly touch them to the pads on the paved surface?

    Roof air doesn’t have any electricity to it, the compressor works and blows air, checked breakers, bedroom air on same breaker and it fires right up, checked fuses

    How can you determine if a by-pass valve is open or closed based on looking at it?

    My slider on my 2014 forester is opening only partially. It opens about 2 inches only on one section of the panel. I checked the fuses, when I remove one fuse, the light next to it lights up and when I pull the second fuse (fuse is good) the light does not come on. Does this mean there's a short in the wire or something else. I checked to see if there's any blockage and nothing appears to be. Thank you.

    My RV is an old 30amp class A. I am looking at options that will allow me to run both A/Cs during hot summer months. I have looked at changing the panel to 50 Amp, using a 50 amp to 30 & 20 amp splitter or just running a separate 20 amp circuit and auto transfer switch to the rear a/c connections from the generator box. Do you have a preference or is this the wrong approach?

    I have a rubber roof on my RV and tried to attach solar panels with well nuts as suggested in the solar company's instructions and the well nuts pulled out. Any suggestions on how to attach the solar panels to the rubber roof?
