Ducky,

Thanks for the "bad news turned good news" story. Wow. I will be heading out to Middlebury next Sunday (the 23rd) to place my coach into Mr. Jewell's capable hands - mine's going back to the factory to get the heat distribution issue inherent in my model fixed. I will be staying at the factory "campground" and flying solo... we have towed our Jeep on a couple of local trips but I'm not comfortable taking it that far as the hitch recall also needs to be done (which they'll also take care of while I'm there). I'll be content sitting in their lounge with my Kindle while they work, but don't want to subject my wife to such Spartan conditions for the three or four days the repairs are estimated to take.

They're also going to tend to a few minor warranty issues (principally my water heater problem) even though my rig is also now out of warranty (by a week at this point).

All of this was arranged by Nate. Looking forward to a positive experience... and many more happy miles on the road with a rig we love camping in.

ducky sounds like you had a good answer to your dilemma, when they replaced my controller I had a deductible of 200.00, and it was caused by setting and getting wet from condensation, 2 months out of factory warranty,,,,

now I have a question for anyone, I have a mystery leak from somewhere, I have come out twice after a storm and my floor is wet in front of the dinette, I have checked the air conditioner and the duct work, the sky light and have found no indication of water coming through anywhere, has anyone else had anything like this, just thought I would ask for some help, I am at my wits end,,, thanks in advance

Ducky, glad to hear they got you sorted, we also had a good experience last month with Nate and the LCI folks fixing our slide. We had a roller issue as well, they were not making contact with the floor in the back causing a lot of binding. I also had Nate redo my alignment as it was off. Much better church now.

Mark,
Finding an entry point for water is difficult but
there are some things u can do to help pin
it down.

Is the coach floor where the water ends up
level? If so, the source is close. If not, seek
out the high side and search there.

Try a dusting of baby powder to see the path
of the water.

FYI, I was just on the roof yesterday resealing
the skylight for the second time! Glad it only
leaked in the shower.

Hammer I hate to suggest it but look above the slide on the inside of the coach. We have a recurring leak issue there, travels down the side of the slide and to the floor.

Power Gear Bunk Lift Kaput!

So there I was... I don't use the bunk bed but need to lower it to
route cables to the TV through the overhead. I am doing a full remodel
of the living area which includes removing the jack knife sofa, building
an electronics cabinet to house 12v Radio/CD/DVD unit and replacing
the TV with a 12v LED model. An inverter, solar and more batteries are
in the plan as well. Soooo, with genset on, pins removed and seatbacks
down, the monkey pushes the button and nada! Motor 1 short indicated.
Thats 1 green and 4 red.
Next, try manual override. Nope. Still up. Reprogram stops. Bad idea. Right side came down 1 inch and stopped. Will not go back up. Oooopsie.

So now i need to reset all the connectors. The motors are easy. Two screws per
panel. The question is: Where is the control box??????? Can't find that lil begger anywhere. Sure hope it can be accessed with the bunk up.

BTW, The bunk is up and pinned now. Whew!

According to the print package I received for my unit, the control box is in the front passenger side overhead near the TV splitter / amplifier. Both are presumably accessed through the right speaker opening. Maybe yours is the same?

Really interested in seeing the details of your project - especially how you route wires in the overhead. Something similar is in my future...
