RE: Slide Electrical Issues

None of your slides are 120V. They are 12V over hydraulic or 12 Volt/mechanical. Some slides require more current to operate than others. Some manufacturers say to either be plugged in or have your generator running before operating sides and jacks.

RE: Brake lights don't work

If you have yellow turn signal lenses (5 wire system), then the brake lights and turn signals are on different wires and the brake light circuit does not go through the turn signal switch. Other wise you have a 3 wire system. Richard It is all red lights with 2 filament bulbs.

RE: Brake lights don't work

:) Hi, it might be the turn signal switch. You may be right as a couple of others have suggested it on other forums. Kind of a hard one to test so I ordered one from FindItParts. Thx.

RE: Brake lights don't work

Does the brake and turn signal using the same "filament" on your coach or are they independent? Here's where you can look up the wiring diagrams : 2004 Winnebago Wiring Diagrams (not sure which model you have) It isn't on those diagrams. It would be on the Chassis (Freightliner) diagrams.

Brake lights don't work

It is a 2004 Winnebago Vectra Class A diesel Pusher. The brake lights don't work but the 3rd brake light does. I believe the 3rd brake light is on it's own circuit. The blinkers and emergence flashers work so the 6 bulbs are good. Also the trailer brake lights don't work. The brake switch is a pneumatic pressure switch and I get voltage from the pressure switch when the brakes are applied. I have checked every fuse I can find that has anything to do with the brakes and several relays with no luck. Any help would be appreciated.

RE: Will my WFCO 55 amp over charge?

The parasitic load in most RV's is enough to keep the WFCO from going into float. I have swapped several WFCO's over the years. They are most times difficult to make them go into Boost mode. When I put one on my boat batteries with no parasitic load, it goes into float (13.2V) after a day or 2. the difference float (13.2) and bulk (13.6) is huge! At 13.6, you need to be checking your water levels monthly.

Rear camera not working

I am helping a friend with his 2003 Winnebago Adventurer 35U. He said his rear camera quit working. I checked and found no power coming to the monitor. Inline fuse was good so I made a jumper and applied power directly to the monitor and the camera/monitor works fine. I downloaded the Winnebago schematics and started looking for the power source for the camera system. The power should be on the "KE" wire. I found this wire also supplies power to the antenna reminder module, jacks reminder module, the rear coach heater and Kwikee activation. All of which are not working either. The KE wire should come hot whenever the ignition switch is in the on position. The engine starts and runs fine but downstream of the engine ignition, there is no power. I am guessing the ignition must toggle a relay somewhere to drive the downstream devices with a fuse or circuit breaker inline somewhere. I need help finding that relay and or fuse. I have checked every fuse and CB in the coach in the coach both electrically and physically. Does anyone know where to continue looking? Thanks! BTW, if you want to be part of this treasure hunt, here is a link to the drawings. Winnebago 2003 Adventurer 35U Schematics

RE: Does Anyone See A Need For a Portable Generator?

I always take the 3.5k champion inverter generator to the sand dunes. We seldom need ac when winter camping there so why run the 7.5 k Gen? It travels in the enclosed trailer with the RZR so easy to load and unload.

RE: Solar install on Winnebago roof

After watching several Winnebago videos, I have figured out there are no trusses to speak of in my roof. There are only some ribs that span the roof in a few places. They are about 1/8" thick and on edge so not an option to mount solar panel brackets too.

RE: Solar install on Winnebago roof

I am afraid to attach to the fiberglass roof with just tape or adhesive. After 17 years of Phoenix sun, I do not trust the integrity of the adhesive under the roof material. My main question is there any truss in Winnebago roofs?

Solar install on Winnebago roof

I've installed a few systems but always on toy haulers where roof trusses were easy to locate for solar panel mounting brackets. Now I have a Class A, 2004 Winnebago Vectra and want to install solar. I am unsure of the roof structure so I am reaching out to anyone that has installed multiple panels on a older Winnebago Class A. Are there trusses or cross members in the roof to mount brackets to? If not, how did you mount your panels? I have watched a few YouTube videos and have seen that there are electrical wires that are in the top of the Styrofoam laying in routed out channels so I don't want to start drilling holes. Thanks.

RE: CBC radio

To me, CB radio is still valid for the reasons mentioned. We usually travel with a another couple in their RV so we chatter along the way on the radio. No phone to dial or text to type while driving. Sometimes if a trucker is going our way he joins in the conversation making it interesting. Can't do that on a cell phone. AND, my CB has blue tooth so if I receive a phone call I can just key up and answer it. Since I am also a new General class Ham operator and switching from a pickup truck and toy hauler I also want to add ham radio to the mix in the future.
