    I am purchasing a 2009 Tiffin Allegro 43, Will the chassis batteries charge when I am on shore power or generator power?

      Hi Mike. The chassis battery will only charge if there is a switch to allow for this. It can be labeled as “aux” battery or something else. They typically don’t connect the chassis battery inline with the system to prevent it from draining when not on shore power. You usually have to select the battery switch to connect it to the system to get it to charge. The converter charges the house batteries with plugged into shore power or running the generator, you just need to connect the chassis battery to the system for them to charge. Most likely there is a way to do it on your unit and it is usually a switch near the dash or the entrance door.

    My back up camera system on a Sunseeker 2300 (2014) is now only sending a blue screen. Any tips on trouble shooting? Is it the camera outback or wiring or other component I don’t know about??

      Hi Peter. It will either be the connections to the camera or the camera itself. I would check the connections on the monitor and camera and see if the signal gets any better but if it is still blue most likely the camera is failing to send the signal. There is a chance the wiring itself is bad but this is more rare. The cameras do tend to fail every so often and replacing the camera is usually the fix. I would definitely check the connections first though as this is common.

    I have a 2013 Coachmen Mirada motor home. I was in Colorado trying to go up the mountains and it didn’t want to go. I hade no codes or over heating. Any idea of what it could be??

      Hi Dale. This is common on motorhomes. Especially with the Class A’s. There is so much weight already on the systems that when they encounter a large incline they will lag and slow down quite a bit. Some diesel system will handle it better than gasoline system but even on certain models they will still struggle. Some are better than others because of the size of the engine based on the weight of the RV itself. It also depends on how loaded you have it as well. Really there is nothing you can do to change this unfortunately other than making sure you aren’t overloaded and making sure your RV is tuned up with an oil change, clean filters and fresh fuel.

    Sorry if this is a duplicate.
    I have an Entegra 2020 F53 chassis and the chassis air conditioner outputs air about 10 degrees warmer (measured inside the vent) at highway speeds (65 mph) versus stop and go/neighborhood driving (35 mph).

      Hi Keith. There could be many things to cause this including compressor failure, blockage or something wrong with the coolant. There are actually instances of there being too much coolant causing this to happen. To really find out though you will have to get the system pressure tested at a mechanic to narrow down what the issue might be.

    We have a 2018 Winnebago Fuse and may do some semi cold weather camping. (Probably no lower than 25-30°F). We have heat tape
