Our Coach is back at the Dealer Again.
When John was replacing some loose weatherstip under our living room slide he noticed something that was not right. We have the type slide that goes out then drops down into place to make the floor flat. There is a block or ramp type thing that it rolls over to get up and down the ramp "so to speak", and that block is broken. It is still in place but if falls out, (as the HWH rep said it may), we would be in a real fix as one side would not get over the ramp and it could not go in.
So, a long story, after tons of phone calls to WRV, it was determined that the entire slide has to be removed to put the new block in. (Scary). WRV is amazing, they seem to always agree. We are so lucky, our one year warranty is up next week. We are wondering if our coach may have been one of the first 2004s off the line since we seem to have had so many problems.
Anyway, back to the Camera. We got a reference (from RV net forum) to RVcams.com
to buy the Voyager Tri View camera. They have a web site but John called and talked to Tim direct. He will "deal" on the price too. We received the camera, 75 foot of cable, two color side cameras etc. yesterday.
After installation we will let you know how it goes. We plan to leave the camera that is there now in place. The new camera will give the wide rear view (color) that is just like looking out the front windshield.
Every thing is well labeled and all connections are really neat. John has already added extra side signal turn lights and it was easy to tap into the turn signal wiring. We will run the rear view cable under the chasis and up the back on the inside. So, will have to wait till we get our Coach back next week to get started.
Also, we are going to add two more AC vents in the living room and two spot light reading lights. Will post on thoes too. Wish I knew how to post photos, maybe some one could tell me how.
