RE: Hard baseball sized "bump" outside RV

You are lucky to be in Florida. Florida has some of the best consumer vehicle laws. I think the seller/manufacture gets 3 chances for repair and then must buy back. Richard lemon laws----The "3 repair" supposed rule. The Manufacturer does usually get 3 attempts at repair. BUT---It must be the SAME repair, not 3 total attempts on the vehicle on all items. That is why it is important when you take a Vehicle in for repair, YOU do not state what you think the problem is, you just state the Transmission does not shift right or the engine has hesitation. You let the Dealership find the problem and IF the exact same component fails more than 3 times, the Lemon Law will take hold if you want it to. Doug

RE: Jayco TV antenna

I don't understand why you need documentation. It is a simple cheap omnidirectional Antenna. There are no user settings or ways to change its operation. Doug So Doug when you said you went out to your 2020's on the lot so are you and employee of a dealership? Just curious as if you are then if someone asks about the television do you just say on or off just a simple reciever, radio same thing, stove, pump heck all of the stuff in an RV according to you statement is cheap no instructions needed. I am one of those people who like to know a product and how it functions maybe too many years in a the digital electronics world but I guess that is my problem. Good luck to you and your endeavors in life it is after all you are born you live you die simple on off no directions needed. I am a technician(40 years). I understand you want documentation. But, it is not needed once you have the parameters. At this point you and I have more knowledge on this Antenna than probably anybody in the USA including Jayco. Doug

RE: Jayco TV antenna

Went to our lot andby looked at a few 2020's. The Antenna is just a simple omnidirectional. You go to the main TV area and just turn the Antenna booster ON and it does the reception. No manual or instructions needed. Doug So when I turn on the booster and get a few pixalated pictures and 2 stations nothing else to do but get a satellite. Now that is sad. Oh did find out the antenna is made and it is not a major player. You can tell from the design and size, the reception radius is extremely small. Good news is, you can install a regular antenna in place of this useless junk. Doug

RE: Xantrex Fredom 458 series inverter/charger 20 amp

1. TYPE battery will NOT cause lack on Inverter to Invert. It WILL cause incorrect CHARGE if The 458 is not set to the correct type battery 2. The simplest way to test is to verify that there IS 12 volts positive to the Battery connection on the Inverter. DISCONNECT the remote harness and activate the Inverter at the button on the Inverter. TEST the 120 connections AT THE INVERTER where the romex wires connect. IF NO 120 output, your Inverter has a bad board(as long as you have checked the breakers on the Inverter) probably caused by the battery miswire. 3. When you are NOT inverting and plugged into Shore or Genset, do the TV's and Microwave appliances work?(Pass thru is working on the Inverter). If so, you do NOT have to do the test on item 2. 4. How old is the 458? Doug

RE: Jayco TV antenna

What he wants to know is, HOW does it operate as Jayco gave no manuals with his 2020 Jayco. Jayco has no answer and directed him to his dealer. Even tho I WORK for a Jayco dealer, that Antenna is new and from what I can find out, it is just a small Shark Fin Omnidirectional TV antenna. From its description, will probably have a reception radius of less than 30 miles. Doug

RE: Jayco TV antenna

What is your question about it? Maybe that is why Jayco gave him a not great answer. Since he has not addressed his question on this forum:B Doug Remember, Garbage IN---Garbage Out:)

RE: Newmar

I have not done a Newmar Vinyl but have on Newmar Fabric. BUT, Monaco used Vinyl panels as well as other OEM's. THOSE ceiling panels come in 4 by 8 foot pads. They have the vinyl glued to the wood backer. You replace the complete 4 by 8 foot cutting out for cabinets and such. It is then glued in to the overhead Styrofoam and roof studs. At one time Monaco was supplying rolled foam/Vinyl and you removed the existing vinyl/foam. Scraped the remnants off the wood ceiling backer and then glued the new to the old. Hopefully, Newmar supplies the vinyl only. IF the wood ceiling backer is intact, then remove the vinyl/foam and scrape and glue new on. Newmar used to pay 4.0 hours PER 4 by 8 foot section for the Fabric replacement under warranty. Same with Monaco for Vinyl only replacement. This should give you a time frame on how long the repair should take. Doug

RE: Newmar

Is it the fabric/vinyl or the complete panel? If the fabric, it is glued to the ceiling luan wood panels. You use standard auto spray glue for a headliner. Doug

RE: FURNACE NOT LISTED ON THERMOSTAT

I told my wife what a jerk you were from your response. She stated, well, it is Thanksgiving. Doug 1. Turn slide switch to OFF position 2. Press and hold MODE (top) and ZONE (bottom) buttons 3. Turn slide switch to ON position 4. Release MODE and ZONE buttons 5. FF appears indicating reset is complete

RE: FURNACE NOT LISTED ON THERMOSTAT

I disagree with Doug being a "professional given his attitude. You ask for help, You IGNORE it. Yes, it is a PITA to try and help people that have no idea what they are doing and refuse to accept help. You need to check and reset the Furnace DIP switch, EVEN if you have not touched it. There are 2 BLUE wires at the AC control board. ONE should have 12 volt power. IF NONE have 12 volt power your Furnace 12 volt fuse is blown or disconnected. MY attitude is, I give FREE help and then you do NOT follow the free help. So, I am the problem? Doug PS, AFTER the DIP switch check and reset, you do a Wall Tstat reset to restore any missing appliance mode. Sorry, I guess you knew that.

RE: Have no electrical power and no propane on one side of coach

Switch the 50 amp breaker on the RV park power pole. You may have lost just one leg of the input power. The salesman switch shuts off basic power inside the coach and sometimes gets bumped to the off position. Most are right near the front door. They are NOT called Salesman switches. They are called Battery Disconnect Switches. Doug

RE: FURNACE NOT LISTED ON THERMOSTAT

I can see how that could be it but nothing has been changed. This happened all of a sudden. I have a new furnace board coming in tomorrow so hoping that'll do it. If you are saying you have a FURNACE board coming and NOT an AC board, you just wasted your money. WHY do people come to these forums for help(they obviously know nothing), get advice and then do what they want anyway?????????????????????????????????????????? Doug

RE: FURNACE NOT LISTED ON THERMOSTAT

If you have Dometic(2002) Tiffin was using Dometic. I have NEVER seen a upper control board be bad and not show a function. Odds are, the upper control board Furnace DIP switch needs to be turned Off then ON, to verify communication. IF you have had a repair on the front AC recently, then the Installer may not have turned the Furnace DIP switch ON. Doug

RE: Operating on a 20amp circuit

I would unplug the Microwave and turn the Roof AC breaker OFF. Since you will be have visitors inside, this will ensure they do not overload the system. Doug

RE: Why no continuous furnace fan option?

RE: Furnace failure

When installed in the RV, does the gas valve click and Ignitor click? Or it only does when you remove the furnace for bench test? You need a voltage measurement AT the Blower motor 12 volt wire at the motor pigtail. When installed in an RV, there is more CASE pressure than when on the bench. IF there is a drop in voltage, combined with the increase in case pressure, that may drop the motor RPM's just enough to not fully engage the sail switch. Also, long shot, a bad motor and cannot overcome that case pressure to keep the RPM's at speed. Doug

RE: Why no continuous furnace fan option?

RV furnaces are designed to operate with a specific RPM. That is so the safety controls will function as designed. IF you had a continuous fan mode, that means the safety controls would have to be bypassed. COST is a factor. Home systems cost a lot more and the control systems cost a lot more. When you have that level of cost, the Home systems are designed to have continuous fan operation. Roof top RV AC/HP units do not have RPM needed safety systems. So, they can have whole RV fan operation. COST is the reason. Doug
