I've sure seen a lot that do but we bought ours with 5000 miles on it and someone else ordered the options I guess. But the good thing is all the bugs seem to be out and we haven't had any problems or warranty work.

They are a $2,993 (MSRP) option on the Sunseeker... I always get a laugh out watching ours level the coach. They remind me of an old Cheech and Chong routine of a low rider bouncing around at a stop light...

Well, hoped I was through the bugs, but my passenger side camera died on the way home today. Warranty expired two months ago.

The Tone should appear at one of the two 12VDC fuse blocks unless there is a blown in line fuse or bad wiring.

I purchased the tone generator and worked on tracing it out today. Nothing at the fuse block but really strong around the bathroom lights. Bingo the outlet is wired to the bathroom light switch, it works fine when the lights are turned on. I'll be fixing that Lol.
Turns out the bedroom tv is 12v as well, it was plugged into 110 with a 12v adapter I just need the Furrian cord for 12v.
I tapped into the power at the light switch in the front cupboard for the Alpha wifi booster so I didn't need to take up a 12v outlet for it.

I'm glad the toner set found the issue for you. Someone screwed that up royally as our GTS is not wired like yours....

Found some old chair slides in the basement so I used them to eliminate the screeching sound the bed makes when the slide goes in/out due to wood on wood contact when sliding.

Looks good but my bed doesn't look like that at all I'll have to check it out.
I installed the Levelmate Pro in the centre of the front cabinet, pretty slick, I levelled the rig for a baseline and entered the wheelbase measurements. Now I via Bluetooth my phone shows in inches how much blocking I need under the wheels.

Looks pretty cool Brian. I'm sure you've tested it a few times. Is it accurate. I would love to get this for one of my next mods.
