    Intermittent power loss

    Doesn't seem to be a bypass switch on this unit.

    Intermittent power loss

    It stayed up all night. This morning I switched on the breakers for GFCI (I need my coffee) and hot water heater. Within minutes the power went out again. I turned off the hot water heater and now it seems OK but it hasn't been that long. This time the EMS showed a P03 error so I guess that...

    Intermittent power loss

    If there is a transfer switch where would it be? Also, can a bad TS cause the behaviour that I described?

    Intermittent power loss

    Yes. Unless it is somehow reporting incorrectly then everything at the pedestal seems to be fine. I was surprised that the voltage was 128-129 though. That seems higher than I am used to seeing.

    Intermittent power loss

    Suddenly today I started losing all my AC power. It would go down for about four minutes and then come back on its own. After a while it stays up longer. It has been up for 1½ hours this time, the longest since the problem started. However, I have turned off the breakers for most of the...

    Restoring our 2010 Landmark

    So our table is now unattached to the floor and I can't find the original screws to hold it down. We had removed them a few years ago so that we could re-orient the table. With the carpet we never found a need to screw it down. With the vinyl (we went with glued down plank vinyl) I worry that...

    Restoring our 2010 Landmark

    Well, we are mostly finished the restoration. A few bumps in the road but it is looking good. We have a few more things to do in the US when we head south in November. One problem, somehow the glass in the door over the desk came loose and fell out. Broken. Need to figure out how to replace...

    Restoring our 2010 Landmark

    Oddly enough some say not to put vinyl down in the slides themselves but I don't understand that. Nothing scrapes across the slide floor and it gets less wear than the rest. As for sliding across the floor, I am being assured that the vinyl we are getting is strong enough to resist scratches...

    Restoring our 2010 Landmark

    Starting to look more expensive than originally guessed but still seems in budget. One problem is finding someone to do the floors. Has anyone replaced their floors with vinyl sheeting before? We are wondering if we can do it ourselves. Working around the L shaped island is probably the...

    Restoring our 2010 Landmark

    We are sort of working from in to out but we may just have multiple things done together. What sort of price are you looking at for a full paint job? Ours is in pretty good shape so we may just replace any damaged vinyl and then do something to clean up the oxidization. Are you going with...

    Restoring our 2010 Landmark

    We have been getting quotes and are almost ready to start. It is turning out to be a bit more than we originally thought but I think still worth it. For the floor we are thinking of sheet vinyl now fully glued. About the same price for the materials but half the cost for installation...

    Restoring our 2010 Landmark

    We have two marine batteries already. No place for a third. I assume that two is enough.

    Restoring our 2010 Landmark

    Would that mean that we could no longer run it on propane while traveling? Otherwise it sounds like a good idea.

    Restoring our 2010 Landmark

    So after buying a Columbus and living in it for a few weeks while trying to sell the Landmark we have decided that we are really Landmark people and we are going to move back. Since we have the Columbus we will stay in it while we restore the Landmark. Even though it is 12 years old we think...

    Awning cap rotated to wrong place

    I suspected as much. I have a call in to a remote RV service company. Am I correct that the people who replaced the awning messed up? Those two slots are supposed to line up, right? In fact that's pretty much what someone in the campground here suggested and will do for me as I don't have...

    Awning cap rotated to wrong place

    I just bought a sunshade for the awning on our 2010 Landmark. I went to install it by sliding it into the accessory slot on the roller but I could not get it on. The cap has a slot on it that I assume is supposed to be lined up with the accessory slot but the people who replaced our awning a...

    Dometic toilet seat

    That's what we did. Went to Home Depot and bought a regular toilet seat. Not 100% perfect - we can't put that little back cover on - but it's close enough.

    Dometic toilet seat

    We have a Dometic 320 toilet with a slow close seat and cover. We bought it brand new in the fall of 2017. In the summer of 2019 the seat broke at the hinge. Dometic replaced it for free under warranty. A year later it is broken again. I am thinking of replacing it with the regular seat...

    Snowing inside the RV

    The garage that did the work suggested mice. I pointed out that it only started after the roof repair. He suggested duct cleaning but if it is mice that won't fix the underlying problem. I think that I will try some of those sticky floor traps to see what I catch besides Styrofoam. I thought...

    Snowing inside the RV

    OK, not snow. It's bits of Styrofoam. Ever since we got the roof replaced in October we get a little snow storm when the AC kicks in. The garage says that it is normal but I am not so sure. Here is a pic from just over a week ago: That's not even the worst. The DW cleaned up before I got...

    Fireplace fan

    I finally took my fireplace out. The trim is nailed on so you have to pull that out. Then there is a screw and bracket at the top of the glass holding that in. Once that is out there are four screw on the inside of the frame holding the unit in place. Without removing the four inside screws...

    Kitchen slide is too far back

    To answer my own question, it isn't a slide problem per se. The problem is that the island can move over time and it moved a bit forward. Someone is coming to move it back about an inch and then it should be fine.

    Kitchen slide is too far back

    Here's another slide issue. The kitchen slide in my 2010 Landmark Grand Canyon seems to have moved slightly to the rear. It appears to move in and out straight but I have to remove the knobs on the cupboard or else the slide rips the doors. I have a local tech coming out to look at it but I...

    Bedroom slide seems to not extend all the way

    That was my thought as well. I watched a video () and it seems pretty simple except for one thing. The guy in the video has full access to the cables as if the walls were removed. I am not sure how easy that would be. Does anyone have a pointer to that part of the process? Is it simply a...

    Bedroom slide seems to not extend all the way

    It's electric. I found a manual at http://manuals.heartlandowners.org/Slide_Outs/Rooms/BAL/accuslide_service-manual.pdf andI found the adjustments but they are pretty difficult to get to. I am not sure how much I have to dismantle to get to it. Also, while checking around I realized that one...

    I should have added that it is a Dimplex Optiflame.

    Fireplace fan

    My fireplace in my 2010 Landmark works OK except that the fan is not running or at least running so slow that I can't tell if any air is coming out. How hard is it to pull the fireplace and check/replace the fan?

    Bedroom slide seems to not extend all the way

    On my Landmark 2010 I suddenly have a problem with the bedroom slide. It seems to extend all the way but when I try to close the bedroom door the bottom of the door hits the frame and won't close. This happened once before and I simply brought it back in a few inches, extended it again and it...

    Furnace for Landmark 2010

    Wow. That might have been what we needed if we knew about it while we were still in Kentucky. Unfortunately we had to get back to Canada and it was cold here and we started rushing some decisions. It may be that the people working on the furnace made it worse but at this point I am going to...

    Furnace for Landmark 2010

    The guy did check the thermostat. It was blown but we replaced it. I do not believe that it was blown when the first guy started looking at it. Everything else on DC is working fine. It was the control board that I first started looking for because that's what the first guy said was the...

    Furnace for Landmark 2010

    We just returned to Canada and the furnace has failed. It seems that these thnigs are scarcer than hen's teeth. Can anyone tell me if an SF-42Q will work in place of my SF-42?

    Extending my WiFi card antenna

    I assume that it doesn't matter whether I am going out or coming in. I see that this gives me two antennas which is what the card has. The only problem is bringing in two cables to the unit. I was wondering if I could replace this unused radio antenna but that only has one cable. If a...

    Replacing "smoked" windows

    I checked out Auto Glass Boss in AZ. They will come to your location (within reason I assume) and work on them on site. They claim $100 per "section" which, as far as I can tell, means per pane. Since our winter plans this year include AZ we will put up with the fog for now and deal with it...
