Glendinning HoseMaster

Does anyone have experience in changing out the motor on the their HoseMaster ? It appears mine is toast as I went out to pull water hose out to fill tank today and reel is locked. Found that the fuse was tripped, did replace but no motor when I pushed retract button. Do have power to switch, so only thing left that I can see is dead motor. The way WRV installed unit in my Apex is going to make it difficult at best to R/R.
Appears that I may have to go through floor to access motor, any suggestions or ideas.

Thanks,
Steve

Another example of WRV installing things with little or no thought of how to access it in the future like the Hydro Hot.

At the RV show in Pomona I think 2008, one of the Glendinning brothers & a tech came out to my coach to address my crapped out hose reel. No way to get it out other than tearing out the whole side of the service bay, a lot of work. They suggested cutting an access hole which made replacement of the reel very simple. I later built a metal cover plate.

A thought before you remove it............The owner's manual shows a black circuit breaker below the red power switch in the picture below. That tripped??? Did WRV include it in the wiring???

I added the hose master with remote for both the hose and cable reels to our 38 foot FDTS '05. As Basil mentioned, there is a reset button on the side that has popped when the hose has gotten jammed, I would check that before I cut any holes.

I have found that I was much smarter when we originally chose our coach then I realized. The '05 FDTS 38' has a couple of advantages that I was not aware of and certainly did not look for at that time. The Hydro Hot is accessible from the curb side compartment in front of the rear wheels, just remove a trim panel, a couple of screws, no cutting and you also gain access to the inverter. Now I discover that the Hose Master is in an easy access place.

I have to replace mine too. It's getting very hard to pull the hose out. Glendinning thinks the bearings are shot due to water intrusion. Looks like I can remove it with enough room between the HH and Inverter. Fingers crossed. The reel arrives Tuesday.

Thanks for the information, I have determined that the motor is toast along with the reel being frozen probably from defective seal on sprocket. Hired a mobile RV repairman in Bend Oregon who was recommended by Glendenning. He is going to be able to pull out by removing the Sure Guard box. Suppose to be done tomorrow if package arrives in time.
Had to replace with updated unit so will be interested to see how it works.


Good luck to all and safe travels,

Steve

Replacement with new hose reel was completed today and was done without any cutting of floor or wall. Repairman was able to move the Sure Guard box enough to complete. The new hose reel comes with on/off toggle switch and had to be used in place of the original toggle that WRV used. This is due to motor having Bendix to help with rewind function. May not be explaining this exactly how this works but as long as it works I'll be happy.

Safe travels to all,

Steve
