New to us 06 338SE

Just picked up our first coach. A well taken care of 2006 338SE. So far the coach seems to be in excelent shape. Just curious if anyone has any experiance with these as it is our first and we basically know nothing.


Glad to be on the forum and look foreward to hearing from you.


Thanks.


Robert.

We have a 2007 340 SE. we like it a lot. had to put a valve on the fresh water overflow hose. it was siphon out of the tank while traveling if we filled before departure.

Iggy,

No. They have removed the factory switch panel altogether and replaced it with three small rocker switches. It's a "home made" job. When I get the coach back I will take a pic. The dealer is putting new tires on it now.

It would be nice to see if anyone here had any pictures of the original panel or model number so you can get an idea if it can be restored to original.
Did the seller tell you how it works at all? Do you have any experience with electrical wiring/schematics?

Looking forward in seeing your pictures.

The service manager and myself figured out the layout of the switches. One controls both front jacks (raises and lowers them both at the same time) and the other two switches control the rears independently.

The system works... But I would like the capability of controlling the front jacks independently.

I get the coach back Wed. And will post some pics.

Being able to see what is supposed to be there would be nice, as well as maybe putting the original equipment back in it.

This is what the panel "should" look like.

What I have is a piece of plastic with three small switches. Nothing more.

When you get your motorhome and can take a closer look at the system you will need to see if the front levelers are on 1 valve or 2.
I suspect you will find only 1 control valve for the front 2 levelers.
That may be because of the weight of the engine must be lifted and lowered evenly so as not to bind the system.

I did that on my 2005 GT and apparently pumped water while the valve was closed and ruined the tank. The top was caved in and the output hose connection was cracked at the tank.

I won't do that again.
