How to Insert Image in Post ??

I have placed a photo on my OneDrive, have it shared and I have link to it. In my posting I click the image icon, paste in the link, enter no width and height, and post message. I expect to see the image in the post. Instead there's an icon and text (image). Looks like it may be a link but doesn't launch anything. How do I get an image to appear in my post?!AtG_9Kfz1J4DhndYrlJ65moSO52H?e=On5Wo4

KwiKee Step Question

My Kwikee step would not extend. I crawled up under and was checking wiring. The Winnebago harness has a pigtail with a 4-pin connector. The steps have a 4-pin connector. But they have made some modification by making a 4-pin to 4-pin harness about 6 inches long and plugging inbetween the two. All lines are pin to pin except the yellow ignition wire for the steps. It has a 1.2K power resistor and a 1N4745 zener diode with a separate ground wire attached, all under heat shrink. The solder joint has broken so it is open. Does anyone have any idea what this was or intended for? I checked the Winnebago schematics, found the 4-pin connector but no 6 inch harness is shown. See photo of the spliced in harness ?? I am following the troubleshooting steps in the owner's manual. I connect red to +12V, step moves. I connect brown to negative and step moves. But when checking the yellow ignition override it does not seem to work. Hmm, will check some more, may be a bad control module. But still wonder what the resistor and diode are for? And do I need to replace them? If so, I need specs to get the parts. I called the Winn tech support guys and they have no knowledge of this. They think it was provided with the Kwikee step. I spoke with Kwikee step, they say they didn't do it either. Oh well, one of life's mysteries !! So I have ordered the parts and will replace, someone went to a lot of trouble to insert this, it must have been for a good reason.

When was the last time you changed your fuel filter? Workhorse specs change every 50,000 miles. The fuel filter was changed at the 50k mile service, transmission was serviced too. Thanks for the idea though....
TC&Z 07/08/20 06:05am Tech Issues

I have a 2007 Winn Voyage 38J on a Workhorse W24 chassis, gas 8.1L engine, 78k miles. 3 times in past 5 years I start, I get a REDUCED ENGINE POWER warning and engine feels like running on 2 cylinders. I turn off, start again, all is fine except check engine light is on. The check engine light goes off the next time I start it. The 3rd occurrence was just recently. I bought a code reader, it shows engine codes: P1516 - throttle position sensorP2108 - throttle body control motor Has any one else had this REDUCED ENGINE POWER warning? I have researched forums. There were many fixes, fuel filter, fuseable link, ground strap, Ox sensor, mass air flow sensor and crankshaft position sensor. Surprisingly none said replaced anything associated with the throttle. If others say this is just an anomaly I will continue as-is. Otherwise I may consider replacing components just for peace of mind. I don't want to get stuck somewhere and not have reacted to the warning signs!! Thanks in advance for your feedback...

RE: Which Code Reader to Buy ?

Do all scanners have the ability to pull up historic fault codes?? Codes that have triggered a check engine light in the past but are now clear. That's my situation with my REDUCED ENGINE POWER warning. It happened last week but is now gone. Or is this historic look back a feature I must look for that some models have, but not others? Thanks

Which Code Reader to Buy ?

We have a 2007 Winn Voyage 38J on a W24 frame. Three times now over a 2 year period i have gotten the REDUCED ENGINE POWER warning. Thankfully turn off and turn back on and it goes away. The check engine light is on for one ignition cycle then disappears. It is not practical for me to take MH to an auto parts store to get the codes read. So I want to buy a basic code reader to look at history and see what the fault was to give me a clue what to check. I was amazed at the range of features and prices, some hand held and some bluetooth to phone app. I don't want to monitor anything while driving, not trying to assess engine performance, but do want error codes. And I am assuming all OBD code readers plug in under Winn dash no problem, no adapter needed, right? What reader do you folks suggest I consider? Thanks in advance... Safe camping

Gas Buddy 25 cents off ??

Gas Buddy claims up to 25 cents off per gallon. Why do they say "up to"? What determines how much you do get off? And when do you get 25 cents off? Ever? Is there at least a minimum savings whenever their card is used? Since the savings are vague I am not sure whether to sign up for a GB card or not. Is it worth while? Any feedback would be appreciated.... Thanks!

Winegard Coax Cable ??

We have the classic Winegard crank up wing TV antenna (12 yr old) on our MH roof. A branch caught the cable loop as it enters the antenna head and broke it, so I need to replace it. I have pulled the rubber boot off where the coax enters the rotating base and found a blob of potting goop to keep water out. Is there a coax connector under this goop so I can replace the exterior coax? Any one know? If so I will dig it out, unscrew the connector and replace the entire exterior cable. I hope it is not just a cable pass thru to the interior. If so, then I have to crimp on new connector and splice it. I also want to replace the coax rubber boots. Are these available somewhere? Anyone's experience with this would be appreciated. Thank you

RE: Where is the Fuse/Breaker ?

There is most likely no wire run for that purpose. If you look at the 7 pin connector by opening the door - the pin just clockwise of the keyway is supposed to be the charge line. If you look at the back of the connector where the wires enter it, you will most likely find only a hole where the wire is supposed to go for that pin for the charge line. hotrodr is right, there is no wire attached to that terminal. Plus the Winn wiring schematic shows only 6 wires going to the 7pin connector. I will run a charge line with inline fuse from the battery. What a pain, wonder why they wouldn't wire the connector completely in the first place? Happy Camping !!

RE: Where is the Fuse/Breaker ?

Did you ever have power there? This is the first time I have needed to use it, so I don't know if there has ever been power there or not. I checked and there are 7 wires in the harness on back of the connector. My rear end dragged entering a parking lot and ground the tow cable in half, so suspect that's when I shorted the 12V line. I need to find the fuse to replace it. Thanks

Where is the Fuse/Breaker ?

We have a 2007 Winn Voyage 38J on Workhorse W24 chassis. With the MH engine running I have no 12V on the 7-pin trailer connector to charge my Dinghy tow car battery. I cannot find the fuse or breaker for this line. I checked the Workhorse owners manual fuse section and could not find it listed. There are several fuse blocks, which one? Does any one know which fuse it is? Or what the fuse is called in the table? What amp fuse? Also, does this 12V remain hot all the time? Or only when the engine is running? Many Thanks

Mopar Flat Tow Wiring Kit for 2018 Jeep Cherokee Wobble ??

I hope to get some clarity on whether the Mopar Flat Tow Wiring Kit is needed for our vehicle to be flat towed. Apparently it maintains power to the power steering while being towed to avoid the "death Wobble" issue. Owners brought this issue to Mopar's attention and this Flat tow wiring kit is their bandaid. I have found many contradicting bits of information. Seems Mopar always recommends but at our cost, more of a CYA move than based technical merit. (it's odd that Mopar says can be flat towed but a modification is needed to do so...) Some forums don't know so recommend anyways to be safe. Some forums say not needed, they have never experienced the problem. Some forums put Jeep in RUN while towing so power steering is powered. Some forums say yes. Some forums say the flat tow kit is necessary IF you are experiencing the wobbling. Some forums say it is solely due to issues with front suspension. We have a 2018 Jeep Cherokee Latitude w/ 2-Speed Power Transfer Unit (w/ Active Drive II) Curious if others with same year Jeep have the problem. And whether you have installed the Mopar kit or not. Note that eTrailer did not mention this when I bought the brackets and brake/turn tail lights wiring kit. I have in inquiry into Roadmaster as well....

RE: Steering Wheel Lock ??

Being a Jeep (all Mopar brands) tech. There is no steering wheel lock for the Cherokee. Or any Jeep model for that matter. In fact the steering wheel lock is pretty much being phased out from a lot of manuf. Does the Jeep have "electric" steering? Or conventional power steering?

RE: Steering Wheel Lock ??

Best thing to do is get your hands on a real owners manual and read what it says about "recreational towing". It will give you step by step instructions on what to do to two 4 down including the steering lock situation. Don't know for sure but that Jeep might be push button start and you do have to follow directions. As suggested above I have reviewed the actual vehicle owners manual. Therein it says "Must use the proper Mopar wiring kit to power the steering system during recreational towing may damage the vehicle's steering system" Does anyone have any knowledge of this. I bought my wiring kit from eTrailer and it was just the standard diode kit. What's the basis for powering the steering system? Thanks

Best 6-Pin Location in Fascia ??

We are replacing our dinghy tow car with a 2018 Jeep Cherokee Latitude. I will be installing the tow electrical with a 6-pin connector in the fascia somewhere, somehow. For those who have already done this, where and how is best to attach the connector? Welcome your inputs! Stay safe, stay healthy, Thanks !
