Still learning and still asking

Canyon Star 3911
We just got this coach a few months ago, but due to health issue with my DW we are only now beginning to travel. Two questions please.

Red rocker switch
On the left side of the driver seat and right between the leveling switches and the mirror adjustments, there is a small solid red rocker switch. I have no idea what it does. (I cannot get photo to post) Can you guys tell me what it is and does? I see nothing when I flip it.

Auto level.
I park on the site, do my hookups, set brake push the auto level. The four red lights start flashing and it levels fine. But, I never get a green light like I do on the previous coach when it finished leveling. Is this right? or am I low on fluid or something?

I believe you're describing the switch to turn on the heated mirrors (or rather, the heater for the mirrors).

Like the previous poster said, the switch is for the heated mirrors and my leveling works the same way. Just the 4 red lights tell you that you are level.

Owners manual has all the info you are looking for, and a bunch you weren't looking for. Its a good idea to read them. You may have features you don't even know you have.

I am finding that out regularly and you are partially right. The manual for this thing weighs 10 or 12 pounds with all the "stuff". You don't know what system it part of most of the time. The switch might be under the *brand name* Mirrors and it will contain general information of the mirrors, but not be coach specific. Much better for me to ask someone who has one like it and knows exactly.

You are 100% correct. My wife set up hanging files and did her best to divide it by subject matter. It helps but a lot of times its easier to ask. Keep asking my friend and I am going to do the same.

I do get a manual out on something occasionally like the radio, gps. There are so many things on these coaches its crazy.

I read all my manuals when I first buy an rv. My current one has the Allison 3000 transmission. I read in the manual that I can check my transmission fluid with the selector pad. Had I not read that, I would have never known. Many other features are built into these things that you would never guess or figure out on your own. Im a believer in reading all the manuals. Mind you, you wont do in one night, but hey whats the hurry.
