RE: 2000 Bounder Electrical Problem

Check the inertia switch's red button, make sure it is completely depressed.The inertia switch is on the floor/firewall behind or near the brake pedal. In a collision/rollover it is supposed to kill power to the fuel pump.

RE: Getting no power at all chassis or coach Help please

Put a meter on your batteries, they're probably below 12v. The click you heard was probably the starter solenoid trying to work but did not have enough juice in the batteries to make it happen. Definitely recheck your connections at the solenoid.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Hmmm, a carpentry repair job in the middle of tim buck two. So, that means you're carrying an uncut 2"x 12" around with you??? If that's the case, cut it before you leave.

RE: Thanks Doug Rainer

Couldn't agree more. Just last week I posted a furnace problem and in 2 posts he had me up and running. Thanks again Doug!

RE: F53 brake master cylinder failure

For me, my master cylinder failed 2 weeks ago. Internal leak, no fluid loss but pedal to floor with minimal braking action. This MC was the OEM and my moho is a 1997. Aside from working in a tight space, replacement was a breeze.

RE: SF 42 furnace madness

Doug, Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou for insisting I chase the 12v on the blue wire. I pulled the furnace once again and chased the blue wire. Low and behold I find a butt connector tucked in and under the circuit board. Of course it had separated and once redone SUCCESS!!!! Thanks again for your guidance. All systems are running perfectly.

RE: SF 42 furnace madness

mchero, yes, I have both. Doug I will probe the furnace harness and check for power on the blue wires. I have already confirmed that I have 12v+ @ the furnace but never checked for 12v+ on the blue wire. Yes, you are correct I have no power from t-stat to rooftop coleman. Probing the Y, GH, GL and Ground on the AC unit shows nothing. FAN alone does not work either. I'll get to that later this morning and post my results. Thanks

RE: SF 42 furnace madness

Doug, I remember reading a post of yours to another camper with a similiar problem (2010). You asked him if he had a Dometic AC and if so there would be a relay up there worth looking at. Does that also apply to Coleman 7333C886 units?

RE: SF 42 furnace madness

Thanks Doug. The furnace harness has the red, yellow, and 2 blue wires which terminate into a molded plug that connects to Winnebago's house wiring. The 2 blue wires I followed from there and they terminate into the mini on/off switch near the circuit board. I see no other blue wires. BTW, I never altered any Winnie wires nor the furnace wires. Molded connectors at each ends of the Winnie wires.

RE: SF 42 furnace madness

It's the OEM Coleman analog t-stat with furnace, fan and AC operations. Built in time delay relay is printed on the cover. I followed my blue wires from the furnace harness to the on/off switch on the circuit board. Switching their position on the switch, had no effect on the operation of the furnace. Yet still, if I jumper these 2 wires, the furnce blower runs, sail switch closes, gas valve clicks and ignitor sparks. Once I remove the jumper to the blue wires nothing happens. T-stat set to HEAT, and TEMP set to 90* and nothing happens.Only with the jumper in place on the furnace harness can I get the unit to run. On top of this, setting T-stat to Fan/High or Low and/or COOL Fan/High or Low nothing happens. I'm pretty much pulling hairs out of my head!!!

RE: SF 42 furnace madness

Aha, that makes perfect sense and something I have not considered. Thanks very much for the assist.

RE: SF 42 furnace madness

Thanks Chris. I have 8 wires coming out of the t-stat with only one blue wire. I'm not understanding what you mean about swapping the blue thermostat wires?

SF 42 furnace madness

So, turned on heat and got fan but no ignition. Pulled furnace and cleaned, while also doing a tune-up. New sail switch, new overtemp switch, new ignitor and new burner installed. Bench tested 12v + and 12v- connected, jumpered the 2 blue wires and got fan, gas valve click and ignitor sparking. All looks good so far. Re-installed, connected gas line, checked for 12v+ and 12v- at connection and is good, jumpered the 2 blue wires again and the cycle began as expected. Fan operated, click from gas valve and ignition of gas producing heat. Yeah, still good so far. Shut it down and went inside, set thermostat to 90*, set mode on T-stat to HEAT and NOTHING, no fan, no click, no spark, no nothing. What the heck is going on? Further investigation reveals my t-stat will not turn on the AC fan or AC cooling either, no nothing. This is beginning to look like a t-stat failure??? BTW, the 2 amp fuse in the t-sat checked and OK but I put new one in, just to rule it out. Anyone else have any ideas? Thanks

RE: AC heat element in Norcold Fridge

Thanks guys. I'll do some Ohm/Amp testing first and then gentle persuasion.

AC heat element in Norcold Fridge

I'm in the process of troubleshooting a failed AC heat element in my Norcold 9182 fridge. Before I dig out my test meter I wanted to see if the element would move in its mounting sleeve. Mine appears to be rusted solid and will not twist. Has anyone come across this and how did you free up the element? I wonder if a soaking of PB Blaster would be OK to use? Any thoughts? ______________

RE: Winnebago Hazard Flasher

On my 1997 Winnebago, the electronic flasher is located on the inside firewall, right behind the brake pedal. Send me a private message w/ email and I can send you both a picture and the schematic drawing if you'd like.

RE: Roadside Assistance

In Massachusetts, my AAA Plus only covered cars. I inquired about RV's and was told Mass. AAA does not have any RV coverage. I went with Coach-Net. I've since moved and that may have changed, worth checking into before any travel.
