Not yet he said he had a BIG job to do and would be back in a week
The only reason I took it to this guy is because he was the only one that could do warranty work on the inverter I have. I will never take anything to him again. The problem with the inverter was the place that put the solar on and the 5 - 6volt batteries in didn't wire them right and didn't use big enough wire. For some reason it blew the remote brain which inturn made the slides, awning, and front jacks to stop working.

Still haven't got my trailer back hell the summer is almost over!!! He called today and said the remote brain controller that I just bought and he installed is bad. I have to talk to the Lippert Co that I got it from and get another one.
This is driving me nuts.

Well FINALLY got my trailer back and now most everything work manually and off the remote. He told me I need a new Landing gear motor (which I told him from the beginning and have bought one). Got home and starting putting the landing legs down and just about got it to where I was high enough and the pins broke in the landing gear legs!!!!! HOLY CRAP WHAT ELSE? So now I ordered the duel power conversation kit and rebuild kit for the one leg.
I had to use my 20 ton jack to get it off my truck.
The Tech that worked on my trailer said it was never wired right in the first place!
So now I will have 2 motors one each lifting each leg.
He also told me my solar is working right charging too much at 15 watts

They should be the same as mine. They are for speakers from your living room system. One should turn on the speakers in the bedroom, the other for the outdoor speakers. That is what they are for mine anyway.



Nice of them not to mark anything wasn't it. LOL

We didn't know at first either, thinking they may be for heaters in the tanks. Dealer was no help.

We marked our switches with a label maker. Looks like you did too.


What is the status of your 5th?

Your two black switches are speakers????? can't read them.
It's nice you have each slide with a switch. We liked that when we had a motorhome. This one goes bedroom, kit, so on. If I just want one I have to open or close the hydraulic valves in the front compartment.
I think I almost have the trailer ready to go. Waiting for a new drive leg. I did put a conversion kit in that now I have two motors one on each front leg.
I just couldn't understand why it wouldn't lift off my truck all the way, and the tech was no help he said it just needed a new motor! DAH
I guess the legs never got greased from the beginning.
I will now know to take the cap off the legs and put grease in.
I am finding alot of wires that are not crimped good and making for a bad connection. Didn't know why my cable tv would not work found that the coax was not hooked up just sitting there on the inside.
I am leaving the walls out of my storage for now so I can fix things as we are camping and not have to take all out.
