    Level Up system sensor location

    use an impact driver to remove to hex head nails. Anything else will probably just snap them off. Location looks correct and platform is on the top edge of the cross member so you won’t be able to feel it.

    Level Up system sensor location

    Look for a screw head centerline near axels, sensor should be located above this area. Screw head attaches coroplast to cross member and sensor is located on a platform on this cross member. Mine fell off and I had to reset it. I released some screws on the side and used a broom handle to...

    A/c issue with freezing coils

    Look for a dangling wire with a spade shape “connector“. This is the freeze sensor that prevents the unit from freezing up and should be in the fins of the cooling mechanism. Mine are accessible from inside my 2015 BH, you may have to get on the roof and remove the a/c’s cover. Look in the...

    Exterior electric

    On our 2015 Bighorn, 3570 RS, the outlet that doesn’t work for you is called the Awning Receptacle and there is a switch in the main panel that controls it. Our switch is located in the top row of switches and is the first one from the left side.

    Slide Out Won't Extend

    Just another thought on battery loosing charge while battery cutoff is off, the emergency breakaway engaged for some reason? That circuit is 100% active and not affected by the cutoff switch. Someone walking by may have pulled the cable.

    Water heater circuit snapped

    Did you take the Wire Nuts loose n the junction box. Had a problem with one of my 120v circuits that I couldn’t seem to find a problem. As a ”last” resort, I was going to test each wire separately, so I removed the Wire Nuts and found one of the wires was not twisted into the bundle with the...

    2013 Big Country Slides

    Check the cogs on your slide mechanisms. The noise might be a symptom of teeth broken or missing from the cogs. I had this problem several years ago

    Two questions - Slide out not sealing, and power to slide out

    Have you looked behind the top of the slide in the open position? Mine appears to have a gap but there is a D-seal completely sealing the interior of the rig to the outside environment.

    M231 Emergency Window

    The “black window latch” is referring to the bracket holding the red handle in place. Disengage the red handle, straighten the handle rod until it is 90* to window, push outward and engage notch in red handle in edge of window to hold it open if just getting ventilation. Push all the way out...

    TMPS Readings

    My system recommends setting the alarm levels for 20% above 110# = 22 for total of 132; 10% below 110# = 11 for 99 (mine won’t allow 99 so I set at 98#

    PLEASE help.. black water tank smell.. long story..

    Is water remaining in your toilet bowl? Initially, if we left the rig parked for an extended period of time, when we returned the water that I left in the bowl would be evaporated and the seal would dry out letting smells in and the seal would become stiff and not hold water in the bowl until I...

    FWIW, I had a “smell” problem with our current BH and I made it go away by closing the gaps around the vent tubes where they terminate on the roof. I took the vent caps off and there was a significant space between the pipe and the roofing wood. Stuffed plastic shopping bags in to fill the...

    Awning arm replacement

    I had to replace mine and I called the company that made our awning. They had an “open box” one because they set up a new one for displays at RV shows and can’t sell them as new. I suggest finding out which brand you have and contact them.

    Broken Main Slide

    As Dave mentioned, check the cogs for broken/missing teeth. Sounds like the same problem we had and, if so, the fix is not real technical. If it is your slide gears, and if I did this right, here is a link to my fix...

    We are back in our wintering spot in South Mississippi. I have this site set up like a sticks and bricks house as far as the Satellite set up goes. I have the standard, non-portable, satellite antenna mounted on a post and this has worked well for us in the past. This year, however, I can not...

    Toilet stinks

    Ours usually doesn't stink but, when the tank is nearing being full, we get a pretty foul smell. If we put off dumping, for one reason or another, we will then get the "burp." This phenomena occurs when the tank is nearing the completely full state. When you depress the flush pedal, a good...

    Tank vent covers

    When we get that "little extreme" smell after flushing, it usually signals getting real close to dumping time. If we don't dump soon after starting to get the strong smell, then we get the proverbial "burp" when flushing and definitely time to dump.

    Sheared screws on bedroom slide

    Dang Squirrels!

    Had a “Southern” pest control man, tell a neighbor that he would stop her squirrel problem and quoted a price. He then captured and/or killed several squirrels. He then nailed these bodies on the non-visible side of several perimeter trees. No more squirrel problem.

    Sewer smell when dumping

    You can check the Studor valve by placing a plastic bag over it and sealing tightly...if smell goes away, problem solved. I had another problem with smells only when dumping, and I have seen others who had the same problem, and the source was a significant gap between the vent pipe and the...
