better question is why are you taking them up?
I would like to take mine up to carpet the steps. We are old and can't afford to slip on a wood step. I did try getting mine up to no avail. Can anyone offer the solution. They must be glued on, otherwise with all screws removed, they should pull out. Thankas.
Steve

Sabre Sam,

Can anything be done now, that will allow the black water dump valve to operate without having use both hands to open, and risk pulling off the plastic handle, then having to hit the handle with the palm of my hand to close? My selling dealer went out of business shortly after purchase and delivery, so there wasn't anyone to ask about the operation. It always worked, though a struggle at times, but has become harder to operate with age and started to leak when closed.

RV is a 2009 Sabre 28RETS 5th wheel bought in 11/09

I don't think there's much you can do short of replacing valve.
it really should be easy to pull.

Maybe there's crud stuck in the plate allowing it to be tight.

The valve isn't exposed on our model, it's above the belly cover.

Unfortunately short of what I suggested I'm not sure you have any other options.
that under covering comes down pretty simple and the valve is easy to replace.

Let me know if I can help further.

Dear Customer,
I'm guessing by the symptoms you are describing the valve seals have problems. You'll need to drop the underbelly and replace the valve. Any RV dealers should be able to help with this service.

I hope this helps.

While sitting here reading your reply above, when the A/C cycles off and I'm reminded of another annoying event when the condensate from the roof unit runs down the rear windows of the RV. I have been trying to think of a way to redirect the water to the side gutters. I bought some entry door weather stripping that will stick to the roof and act as a channel to reroute the the flow. Any ideas??

Thumbs up Broken wiring support strap under slideouts FIXED

I'm assuming that all straps in this model are routed the same way, so this is how I fixed mine. The problem was that the strap was bending over the top of the slide bar when the slide was closing, and there was very little room for the strap to compress. I thought about moving it forward, but could see that would make no difference, and there was no room to move it rearward. I finally figured it out. I cut a 10 inch length of 1 inch square 'L' bracket , aluminum, bought at any hardware store, and affixed this bracket to the left edge of the plate that the outside of the strap was connected to. I then afixed the strap to this bracket, so that the strap was 'LOWER" than its previous position, and rode UNDER the slide mechanism. On the coach side the strap slid down to the base of the 'pin' , where I wrapped a tie wrap, and Voila, it now has room to compress into that space along the frame rail of the trailer. I'd take pictures, but I'm on my way down to Arizona early in the AM, and I think you can figure it out as I did, that if you go below the slide bar, you got more room.
Thanks very much Spurge, and also thanks to SabreSam for sending two new straps. We copied this idea of yours, manufactured an aluminium bracket and the repair has held now for 800 Mi. Nice to get such great assistance without the time/hassle/cost factor of going into a dealer. Much appreciated.............

its seems most roofs have a crown to them and normally the water runs to one side or the other .
I wonder how or why your runs down the middle ?

ThankYou

Saber Sam
I am setting her trying to find the words to explain how happy we are with the service we have rec. from you and your team also American RV. This kind of service in not heard of at this day and age.
We met up with Gary and what a pleasure that was. He and his team went all out to make sure the customer was happy. He made it clear Saber wantís happy customers! I ran a company for years and it was a pleasure to see the work ethic of his team
Before we bought our unit we searched for months before we made a decision, after our tour of the facility 2 times with Kevin we purchased one. You and the Saber team have confirmed we made the right choice.
Again thank you for your help. You have myself and my wife as two more salesman for Saber because we have a superior unit!!!
This web site is first class. Saber is on there way to being number one if they are not already there.
THANK YOU ! !
LeRoy Preston
