    Question on Selling an RV

    I am contemplating on selling my rv and have a question. Looking at PPL Consignment sales. I know with an individual sale the add-ons I have added (TPMS, Camera, Surge Suppressor, etc etc) would add to the value but how about selling/consignment with a dealer? Would I be better off removing the...

    RV-Armor vs Flex-armor

    Due to my roof having an argument with a tree limb (limb won) I am going to have to replace the factory roof. I am looking at RV-Armor and Flex-armor. Both have pluses and minuses. The warranty is the same for both, lifetime against leaks and transferable. One you go to the other comes to you...

    2015 Cyclone 3418 Electrical Connections

    The Bar Light in mine are intermittent. I thought it was the lights themselves. Tuns out is is the power to them. They are 120v AC halogen lights. They are fed by a pair of stranded cables colored W+W/O, not Romex. Traced the pair to the switch and can't get continuity. Looked at the power to...

    Logic Blue Tech (Level-Mate Pro & Power-Mate Pro)

    I have been using the Level-Mate Pro (iPhone) for several years to level my rv and am very satisfied with it. To me it's easier than the Auto Level, just my personal opinion. Today it showed the battery level to be low so being lazy I went to the internet to find out which battery it uses...

    Level Up 6 Point is a PITA

    Pulled into a rv slot yesterday that was nowhere close to being level. The genius in the box determined I was too far off level to do anything so I couldn't manually adjust it. I re-calibrated the level to my current condition which allowed me to manually operate it. When I got close it decided...

    Dometic 15k Not Cooling

    I guess the run of flaky AC's back in 2014-15 finally got to one of mine. The main ac is not cooling. Intake air is 78 and out is 72. Current draw is high at 18A. All the cooling fins are clean on the inside but the condenser just won't get cold, that combined with high current draw (voltage is...

    Cyclone Slide Digging Into Floor

    Went camping last weekend. Went went to pull in kitchen slide while getting ready to leave and I noticed where it had dug into and torn the linoleum at one corner. This was the corner under the fridge. The slide trim has always been close to the floor with appx 1/4-3/8" clearance the entire...

    ATF: Cyclone - Water Tank Overflow Line

    I filled the fresh water tank with 90gal of water for a dry camp trip. Since I have been weight limited (old TV) I haven't done this before. All was well. When I raised the front this AM to hook up I had water running out from the rear of the coroplast. Evidently I put in too much BUT the...

    Patio Fencing for Cyclone

    My 2015 Cyclone has the fencing around the rear patio. We used it once and put it in storage where it has been for abt 3years. It's taking up space and needs to be gone. It is complete with everything to install it on your patio. Including the brackets that bolt to the ramp and all hardware...

    Kudos to RV Lock

    Last November I ordered a new board, keypad, and keypad membrane. This was the upgrade for the RV Lock 4.0. It was received 11/17 and promptly stored in the RV. It seems the only time I have to do the optional non-essential stuff is when we are camping. Last week we made the first outing of the...

    Strange Champion Generator Problem

    A friend bought one of the Champion 3400w electric start inverter generators. When he hooked it up the his new RV (30A) and turned on the AC (13.5k) it went into overload and cut power. Not knowing if he had a generator problem or an AC problem he asked if we could try it on my RV (15k) AC. He...

    New Lippert App

    I just found about a new (to me) app for the IPhone called myLCI. It has a lot of information on about anything they build, troubleshooting tip, service bulletins, etc.... I just started browsing so don't know all that is there. There is a companion app called OneControl. If you have an RV with...

    And Another Onan Issue

    Last Friday we left for a weekend of dry camping. Full of water etc, etc. From Friday to Sunday abt 2 PM the generator ran a total of abt 35-40 hrs, never even hiccuped.

    Another Generator Problem

    I'm starting not to like my Onan generator. It went a year with no problems. It had and error code 27 and I took it to a service center. They fixed it under warranty. Error 27 covers about everything but the kitchen sink. It seems that if you let it sit too long without running it will generate...

    Strange Thing Happened

    Went dry camping this weekend, Thur-Sat(flea market). Stopped at Flying J to dump on the way home Sat. Did my normal routine with the black tank. Then opened the sink tank. Not much usage so not much came out. On to the shower/lavatory tank. Just a bare trickle and then nothing. ????? We both...

    Problem With Repling to Messages

    Using Windows 10 and Firefox. If I reply to a message all is well until I use the Delete or Backspace buttons to correct a typing error. At that point my typing is placed on the line above the paragraph I was typing. I cannot go back the the end of the line where I used the Backspace/Delete...

    Electric Awning Quit

    Rolled out the front awning this AM. Went slightly too far so asked the DW to back it up 1/4 turn. Nothing. No in or out. It is a Carefree awning with the electric motor. After checking the fuse I went to the power switch, Murphy said to leave your DMM at home. That will be corrected tomorrow...

    Dometic AC Freezing Up

    I recently sealed the Main AC unit to try and stop it from freezing up. I taped the dividers to keep the air from mixing. As a test I ran the Bedroom AC for several days and it never froze up. Then switched to the garage AC and it did fine. I turned on the main AC and it lasted about a day and...

    RESOLVED: 6 point Level-Up System Problems

    It seems my level-up system has gone stupid. After unhooking and pushing the auto-level button it will level front to rear. It then starts lowering the rear 4 jacks and if the rv is close to level it stops and shows Success. Sometimes 1 o r2 of the rear jacks are down to the ground and some...

    Cable Operated Kitchen Slide Problem

    Over the past month I have had a slight noise when extending or retracting the kitchen slide. It happened every 3-4" of movement either in or out. It finally got to the point the slide wouldn't move without help. It also had a machine gun sound when it stopped that I attributed to the overload...

    Cyclone with Cable Operated Slides Making Noise

    My Cyclone has the BAL cable operated slides. Recently the BR slide sounded like a cat with his tail in a wringer for the first 6" of movement in either direction. I thought at first it was the slide rollers needing oil, nope not it. A few calls to several dealers for warranty service (4-6...
