SabreSam... are these 110v or 12v in the 2013's?
Would be nice to know eh ?

Maybe that's why mines quiet and yours isn't !?!?!?!
Have a great weekend !

I'll work on it but I need more info. Send me your contact information and vin number. Also send me your servicing dealer name.

For a quick fix you might slightly adjust the blades with a slight twist. That hum is sometimes cause by a blade being out of wack.

We will get you fixed up.

So you've tried the fan without shore power and it didn't work ?
Mine is 110v with 3 lights. If the shore line is pulled, the fan stops. It is definitely 110v.

A couple of questions of "what's under there?" - with Christmas coming, we're planning on a trip away and need to make sure that Santa can visit us away from home. We don't do overly extravagant or anything like that, but we do need to stash a handful of things without the darling daughter being any the wiser. SO...

I took the cushions off of our seats in the dinette. 2 of the 3 seats were screwed down with no access to get under them. The 3rd had no screws and had a 1"-ish hole drilled so that you could pickup the plywood. What's under each of the dinette seats? Could I back these screws out, drill finger holes and free up some more storage space?

The same with the bed - we lifted it up to check out the platform that it's on. My model has a bedroom slide, so I assume the slide's machinery is under there... but, is there any usable space around it if I cordoned off the area?

I'd love to know before I start pulling screws and poking holes in things.

Dear customer
Sorry for the delay in answering. Yes you can unscrew the dinette platform. RVIA codes require us to screw that down due to the electrical outlet mounted in the base. Just be careful to not pack too much against the outlet.

I would not store anything under the bed platform. Something could move and jam the slide mech. I hope that helps.

I think once I pop it open, I'll look at the back of the outlet and see if I could put a basket around it somehow to ensure things keep away from it.

That's a shame about the bed platform. I was worried about the slide mechanism being a problem and it sounds like it could be. My wife has a girlfriend whose bed is NOT on a slide - we're a little jealous of their storage space.

We are having problems with the dealership that does the warranty work on our new RV. They rarely return our calls and when they do , they call to tell us they are still researching the problem. We have been wating over 2 months for a return phone call. They are an hour away and the next closest dealership is 2 hours away. What do you suggest we do?
