    Suburban furnace problem - need guidance

    Dan, thank you! This is the chart I've been trying to follow from the installation manual that came with the rig. It seems like something is missing from it as the motor has 3 or 4 wires coming out of it...I'm baffled. I'll look at it again in the morning. The furnace is connected via the...

    Suburban furnace problem - need guidance

    Is there some sort of over-temp lockout somewhere that would otherwise prevent +12V getting to the board? I've been running through my noggin going back to when the issue started. While we were out hunting, bags were placed in front of the return air grill to the furnace. I didn't notice the...

    Suburban furnace problem - need guidance

    I'm willing to buy a new board (or repair this one), but having trouble understanding why there isn't power going to the board itself on wires that I think should have power. I'll sleep on it tonight to ponder these schematics a bit more. Where is the limit switch and would it cause any...

    Suburban furnace problem - need guidance

    Alright, so unless I pull the furnace, I can't access the crimp connections that ties into the trailer wiring. Instead, as painful as it was, I just tested the two white wires through the insulation that I'm guessing are part of Y3 and Y4 and both show 13V as well. There is also a combined red...

    Suburban furnace problem - need guidance

    Thanks, Dan. Working on this now. According to the schematic on the bottom of the case cover, I'm guessing the left connector is Furnace Y4 and the right connector is Furnace Y3. With the thermostat off, Y4 has +13.22V. Y3 shows zero. With the fuse installed and heat called, both Y3 and Y4...

    Suburban furnace problem - need guidance

    Thanks all! So I've been out here troubleshooting this thing this morning. I checked for voltage at the red spade connectors on the control board which should provide the +12V to power the blower and provide the necessary voltage for everything else. There isn't any power getting to the board...

    Suburban furnace problem - need guidance

    Good call on that! I will check for 12V at the relay and apply 12V to the motor just to be sure the motor isn't bad. It's odd that something that was just fine one day suddenly stops working the next. Both Digikey and Mouser are definitely my go to electronic parts suppliers. One of them I have...

    Suburban furnace problem - need guidance

    Motor spins freely. I know power is getting to the circuit board because there is an audible click once power is signaled (ie calling for heat at the thermostat). We are home now and just decided to forgo the repair while away for a few reasons. 1. Mobile repair guy was the only one that had a...

    Adding Rear Hitch Receiver to RW 400

    Cool story. Like 300 lbs or there about will make a difference (actually, the tongue weight would be less), especially if the garage isn't even at its max weight that it can hold. Therefore, if I wanted to, I'll triple tow with it, however, if you actually read the comments, I basically can't...

    Suburban furnace problem - need guidance

    Stove works fine. Fridge on propane works fine. Batteries are fine. Fan on heater will not turn on. I hear a click at the AC and at the heater when I turn the thermostat to heat. Nothing happens. Fuse is good. Sent from my SM-G955U1 using Tapatalk

    Wow! Thank you for this! I'm betting it's the control board after watching that video. Gotta figure out who I can get one from soon or at least delivered by Wednesday to my parents as once my son tags out, we're heading to their place for Thanksgiving...need to have heat when the rest of my...

    Suburban furnace problem - need guidance

    Thank you! I found the fuse. Pulled it, turned the furnace on via the thermostat and got the red light. Turned it off and put the fuse back in. I checked the battery indicator when we got back to see how low they were after being out since 0600. The 4th (full LED) was barely flickering. Which...

    Suburban furnace problem - need guidance

    Hi all! Day one out hunting with my son. Last night I fired up the furnace and before I went to bed, I lowered the thermostat to about 67 degrees. After I lowered it, it never came back on and so we woke up to a cold trailer. When I turn the thermostat on, I hear a click in the AC and while out...

    Front AC thermostat location

    I don't have your model, but the front layout is similar other than the bathrooms are on opposite walls. The front bedroom t-stat on my unit is mounted on the bathroom wall, closer to the exterior wall, in the bedroom. Sent from my SM-G955U1 using Tapatalk

    Generator fuel tank draining

    Disconnect the fuel feed at the generator, connect a longer hose, and run the pump. Don't even need to start the generator. 2 years sitting, is quite a long time. Hopefully you won't have carb issues when you do start it. If it does happen, you might be able to get away with pulling the carb...

    Fuse identification for Pioneer RE275, 2020 model.

    I just checked... They are all 15A and one 20A. I figured at least one would have been 2A. Of course, I can barely interpret some of the person's writing that did the annotations. I guess another source to look for is LED lighting that came from the factory. Such as pucks on the front maybe...

    Fuse identification for Pioneer RE275, 2020 model.

    I don't have your model but when I make it outside today I'll check my RW as I would think elecrical would be fairly similar across models with common features. Check to see if it is powering a CO detector or any smoke detectors on 12V. I can't think of anything else that would have such a low...

    Adding Rear Hitch Receiver to RW 400

    Even if I can figure out a way to couple a bumper pull to the RW, the trailer is light enough (about 220 lbs) to move around by hand. I have a backup camera on the RW as well so backing up to hookup isn't much of a problem to get it close if I had to. In the rare situation I need to backup with...

    Adding Rear Hitch Receiver to RW 400

    I've been eyeballing my old 4x8 harbor freight trailer figuring out a way to extend it a few more feet and fold it up to be under 9 feet so I can be right at the 65' max. I figured a chop here and there and a few pins, it could fold up nicely [emoji23]. It's all about the time now as I have a...

    Adding Rear Hitch Receiver to RW 400

    You're right. I found the NM Statutes. 65' total length. My total length is 56'. Too long for a 16ft trailer added on. Oh well! We've been talking about getting a new fifth wheel without a garage, so I'll take this all into account when we decide to do it. Sent from my SM-G955U1 using Tapatalk

    Adding Rear Hitch Receiver to RW 400

    Wait, max trailer can only be 40 feet? So I probably couldn't do it any how since the RW is already about 43' total. I guess I need to dig into the rules again. Sent from my SM-G955U1 using Tapatalk

    Adding Rear Hitch Receiver to RW 400

    Dang it. I thought it was 70 feet! Could have swore that's what I read years ago when deciding on a TH or regular fifth wheel and a separate trailer. I'll have to get exact measurements then...but I'm thinking it'll be between 65 and 68 feet, which I'll forgo it if that's the case. Thanks for...

    Adding Rear Hitch Receiver to RW 400

    Yes it's legal, up to 70 feet total length, which it'll be right at or just under. Don't plan on pulling this setup in any other state than where I live. Looking for advice if a receiver can even be added on the Road Warrior without having to stiffen the frame or other major modifications. If...

    Adding Rear Hitch Receiver to RW 400

    Hey all! I'm curious if it's feasible to add a rear receiver to a RW 400? I think the rear floor-mounted cargo box would have to go, but otherwise, is it feasible to add a receiver to pull a 14-16 foot trailer? I'm debating this idea to make it a bit easier to haul back both my RW and a...

    Roof AC runs when using furnace

    Yes. If I recall, select the fan setting on the thermostat and change it to Auto instead of Low or Hi and that should keep it from turning on while on the heat setting. It only happens when plugged into shore power or on generator. It helps to move the heat throughout the coach but gets quite...

    Plugged in to 50 amp and still run of gas?

    You're welcome! I know what it's like to run out of propane. We were in an area a few years ago that doesn't have any refill stations open on weekends and we ran out at about 3am on a Monday morning. Needless to say, I was at the closest location right as they opened to have the bottles...

    Plugged in to 50 amp and still run of gas?

    The furnace runs on propane and uses 12V (batteries) to run the blower. If you need heat without propane, you'll need to see if your overhead AC can have a heat strip added to it. Sent from my SM-G955U1 using Tapatalk

    The generator currently runs pretty well - but it is about due for the 450-hour service (valve lash adjustment). I found the latest operators and service manual that covers this generator through the Cummins QuickServe. Through some reading I discovered that when running the GenSet above 5K...

    Manual Transfer Switch Upgrade (Blue Sea Systems #8363)

    I guess you didn't read any of my posts or the link to my other thread about why I went away from using an ATS. I suppose you can say it's a non-paid promotion of a product that just works. ATS is merely for convenience and unless you have an auto-start genset, there is zero reason for an ATS...

    No clue. I have unmarked switches on my fifth wheel that I still get confused on what switch does what, but they are all for lights. Some are tied in to the ceiling lights with the switch built in, but too high to toggle without a ladder. One thing to try, if you have a wall mounted light...
