Good luck

Just wondering why you turn the coach off once you are all aired up? I always do the same steps as you except never shut it down. You get the ignition on alarm when you turn the panel on but when you hit retract all it goes off. I've used these steps since new and never had an issue. Also, I do not wait to air up when I start the coach, I go straight to retract all since the coach dumps air when you do this step anyway. Once all retracted, turn it off and you hear the click and the coach starts to air up the bags and tanks.

I stupidly thought I'd already checked something so simple. Yet, that was exactly the problem.

I couldn't have MORE egg on my face.... I might just as well have shoved my face right up the chicken's...... Never mind.


Luckily, since I keep no REAL schedule the possible effects of my THREE hour delay was minimal. So we ran 24 miles east on I80 in Wy and are stopped at a Flying J for the night in Rawliins, WY.

A most heartfelt thanks to all that helped.

Boowho??

What's worse is she asked me at least twice was it in neutral. Just a matter of several massive brain-farts due to getting excited over the damn coach doing the bucking bronco thing.

And besides the egg on my face thingy, I had a nice meal of crow an hour ago. I won't live this down for a LONG time.


Sheesh!!!!!!

Boowho??

It'll haunt me for years.... What's really funny is my DW has more mechanical ability than many men I know. Until we went full time, she her OWN set of tools.

Glad it was a simple fix and you are back on the road Boo!

Now I can hijack the thread!

What do you mean by the "bucking bronc" issue?

I have yet to experience that, it sounds like fun but I'm guessing it is undesirable.

Boo,
Happy to hear that you 'problem' wasn't really a problem and that you are back on the road again.

Bucking bronco is when the air ride fails to inflate.
