The reason you get low voltage is the intake grid heaters are coming on and off. They draw hundreds of amps. You will notice your volt meter on the dash cycling up and down as the grid heaters come on and off. Wait until the voltage stabilized above 13 volts.

Both Ron's posts, (#754 & #757) are exactly correct.

Follow this and you will have success, and, not burn up motors from low voltage strain.....(not saying you weren't doing this Brutusiii, just sayin' Ron is correct.)

Its actually an odd problem. Front motor works, but back motor will not...keeps saying low voltage. Replaced the motor, control panel and control module. Symptoms continue with low voltage error. Now Im figuring the problem is closer to the battery. The bus starts without issue, but the generator, and now both slides seem to have issues with voltage. Is there a solenoid or a relay back toward the battery that could be causing the low voltage error?

I had been having similar issues with my front passenger slide. Another possibility is your coach batteries. Mine is a 2012 Tour 42QD and I recently replaced the coach batteries. The reason I did was that after recharging them from the winter storage I used a volt meter and measured the voltage at the terminals in the back drivers side engine area. They registered 10.4 Volts. But when plugged in the voltage at the panel displayed 12+ volts. I then pulled the old batteries from the compartment in the center of the coach. Found two of them would only measure 10.4V and the other 4 were at 12 - 12.5 volts. When my buddy at the NAPA store checked them, it confirmed the two were at 40cca vs the 800 they were rated for. The others were in the 400 to 500 range. After replacing the batteries the slides were like being on waxed runners, they moved faster in and out than ever since I purchased the coach new. The batteries in mine were NAPA Group 31 AGMs and when I compared them to the Lifeline 31 and others the specs were comparable.
I too had thought one of the motors were bad because it states that the the sensor is in the motor. I was going to replace the motor at this years GNR but after replacing the batteries everything is operating much better.
Since yours is a 2011 I thought you may want to check the batteries.
Hope this helps!
Bob

Has anyone had an issue with the AquaHot 450D where the diesel burner light turns off one the main control panel in the coach and the system doesn't operate?
I tried the electric as well, the status lights on the panel of the AquaHot are green but just cold water from the faucets.
In advance, thanks for your help.

That makes a lot of sense. I will replace mine. Do you have a recommended part number or brand?

2011 Ellipse 42QD here.
Replaced all 6 of my original NAPA Group 31 AGMs last summer when I was in Oregon (no sales tax). I just purchased the same NAPA batteries (9837 I believe, need to look or find the receipt). The in-store price was actually significantly cheaper than online as I recall.

Just take a picture or two of the cable wiring before you start to disassemble. It's about a 1 hour semi-backbreaking job!

Hi - the ones in my coach were the 9831DT = Dual Terminal because the connecting wire matrix from Winnebago used the 1/4 20 posts versus your standard battery terminal.

My local NAPA store was able to have them within two days.

They were $275.99 each.

If you purchase alot of items from NAPA I'd recommend joining the NAPA rewards program - good news is that you get alot of rewards bad news is you can only claim $5 at at time and that depends on what your purchasing.

I've been able to do some additional troubleshooting thanks to Jim at AquaHot but still unable to get the diesel burner to light.

The first test was the controller thermostat - the one between the two high temp cutoff thermostats. I jumpered the two connections to bypass the thermostat. I then tried the system again - this time the Heating Status indicator was green. The electric heating element then began to work. However, the diesel didn't. I did on continuity check on the control thermostat and it was 'open', so I've ordered a replacement part.

Today I replaced the nozzle on the burner and keeping the control thermostat bypass in place I tried the diesel but to no luck. I also replaced the fuel filter before changing the nozzle.

Checking the controller pins they seem to have the correct voltage as described in the service manual.

Hoping that you may have some recommendations on how to continue to troubleshoot this issue.

Thanks!

I am planning to replace my batteries with VMAXTANK XTR31-135 135Ah AGM batteries https://www.vmaxtanks.com/XTR31-135-...ry-_p_176.html. The total cost with free shipping is a $1700.95 or $288.50 per battery. This increases the total capacity to 810Ah vs 600Ah stock.

Those are the same batteries I have in my 42QD. Do a search on the internet to fond the best price.
