Water leak

We recently developed a fresh water leak coming from up above the bay just forward of the passenger side drive axle. The grey tank tank is there and the leak is just forward of the tank. A lot of sheet metal is not allowing me to see where the leak is coming from. Ran hot water in galley sink and the water leaking was very cold, leaking while dw was showering and water was very cold. This is intermittent so diagnosing is difficult. Any one out there have a similar issue? There is no order from the water so I suspect it is coming from a fresh water source.

Rick On my coach the water line runs are one solid piece transiting from the water pump to the rear of the coach with connections at the pump and the sinks / shower faucets. I did the following to chase a leak:

- Pulled the interior of the front bath cabinet to get access to the sink connections and the AAV
- Pulled the panel lining the passenger side of the fresh water tank to see a great number of connections to/from the water pump and city water connection
- Pulled the cover off the water pump enclosure to see all that

You can also pull the air return cover next to the bed to see the shower connections. And as a wild card - I found that water coming off the slide cover was running down the slide out seal and entering the two compartments in front of the drive axle. Good luck ...

Jesse I see what you addd there. I can speak from experience of having had those cables that they can be a real pain (at least on my model on the passenger side). The cable can catch the sliding tray as you move it in and out. This ends up breaking it frequently. I had to add some devices to keep the tray from hitting the cable.

This might not be true on the QD but on the 2016 HD it is.

I didnít think about that.
What type of device did you add?
Thanks

I added two things. One was a retainer to hold the cable up against the door some and then I added a “ramp” on the door where the slide hit to push the door open for clearance as it came out. I used some plastic pieces I had laying around but a better solution would be something like oak or walnut that is hard to make the ramp.

I can take a photo maybe tomorrow

Entrance Door 4 wire connector - wiring diagram

Good Afternoon everyone - hope you are all doing well.

I had to change my Kwikee step motor and after reinstalling I can either have the step go in and out as it is supposed to with the coach on/off and none of the remote or entry lock switches work. If I flip one of the 4 pin connectors I get the remote and entry lock switches working but the step doesn't retract.

Any thoughts - I've looked at Winnebago drawing #177331 "Wiring Instl-Front End" and in Detail AB it has the 4 pin connector that is in the door frame but I cannot find any detail for the connector that is in the door itself.

Any help or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Hope everyone is getting out and enjoying their units - even with the rainy weather we've had on the East Coast.

Thanks! Bob

Welcome here Bob,
I see no one has responded. I don't have any knowledge of what you are asking but perhaps you will need to take the door apart. I know whenever I take those extreme steps it turns out something obvious and simple shows up!

The simple solution always presents itself after going too far so it reminds me of how we are all just pawns in the grand ironic schemes of life.

Bill

I'm not well versed in this, so I'm wondering how changing a step motor out could affect the remote or entry lock system? I'm definitely confused.

I agree Wayne. It seems like there is more troubleshooting needed. The only thing I could see in common between the entry lock and the steps is the common connector in the door i.e. the electric door lock and the electric step are both affected via a signal that comes in through the door connector.

The only thing I can think of is that the steps were out when I changed the motor and maybe the 12V was "inverted" to think the step was in. I know it sounds crazy. I have taken the connector off of the door frame and made sure it was as the drawing on the Winnebago website, as I can see the markings on each individual wire. On the connector in the door, it is alternating blue then white then blue then white but no markings or labels on those wires. So I'm guessing I messed up the connection sequence and just can't find a definitive wiring diagram. I'll have to see if Winnebago customer service could help.

Disconnect the step wire. If the step was out put it in by hand, reconnect the wire and see if that works. I had a problem with the controler once and had a half way out step. I moved it by hand and it started working again.
