Hey all! No posts here in a while! In December, we decided to go to Florida for a while, so we loaded up the Vengeance with all our stuff and both Trikes and headed out. We're staying at Tampa east RV Resort on a nice concrete pull thru site. Been living in the camper 60 days so far, and only two problems have cropped up. First was the galley tank cable. The outer cable housing pulled loose from the T handle, leaving the galley drain open all the time. After poking around, I found that the carpeted plywood panel on the left side of the water panel comes right out with 6 screws, allowing full access to the back of the panel. I stuffed the cable housing back into the T handle shaft with some super glue, and re-crimped it. Works great so far, but I'll probably need a new cable eventually. While I was in there, I cleaned up a pile of sawdust and shavings. The water pump is also right there, and you can see the water tank easily. Many things can be assessed through this panel. A couple days later, my wife noticed that all the interior lights were getting dimmer and dimmer. Checked the battery, and it's way down. All fuses good, so I set about looking for the converter. Found it behind another carpeted plywood panel in the rear of the right hand storage compartment. Only 4 screws holding it. Mine has an electrical outlet and cable connection on the panel, but there is plenty of slack to open the panel. The converter is screwed to the floor. Fuses were good, so I pulled it out. (It is plugged in to the back of the main electrical panel, so you have to remove the cover and the panel mounting screws. Plenty of slack in wiring to pull the panel out far enough to un plug the converter. It smelled burned, and was putting out 5 volts when I tested it. Fortunately, Camping world is only a mile away, so a new converter is now in and working great. So, when we go home in March, I'll be at the dealer again trying to get reimbursed for the converter, and a new cable for the galley.
Still nothing on getting a new hitch, so we're still pulling with the original 1621 Lippert, still see the 18,000 lb max sticker, every time I walk by, lol.
How's everybody else doing?
