Smile "On The Road Again"

After reading this forum for over three years and looking for the "right" Alpine, we are on the road again with a 2003 34' Alpine!!

HOW SWEET IT IS!

We now really understand why the owners are so passionate.

We picked up the coach in Oregon three weks ago. We stayed a couple of nights at the new River's End rv park in Harrisburg. Then drove 600 miles home. The trip started with clear weather up to the California line THEN wind and rain for the next four hours. The coach handled well.

We've just returned from Pahrump, Nevada and added another 1100 miles to the odometer.

We love this coach.

Questions to follow. laughs.

Congratulations!!! We have the same coach and love it. I am on the process of putting an outdoor entertainment center in ours. I will post pictures once I am done.

Dear All, thank you for your kind responses and making us feel 'un-abandoned'.

Dave, we are not able to get to the current rally but will try and join the rally in San Diego.

Wally and Debbie, Jerry and Work2Play, I am certain that so 34' questions as well as general Alpine questions will come up. I am already using the search feature to find some answers.

Does anyone have a "solution" for the 'silent' turn signal flasher? laughs. A beeper would be a good thing.

"Happy Trails To You".

Raymond,

Congrats on your new coach, I know that you will love it. Our last coach was a 2002 34. I added a buzzer or some sort of noise maker, that I got from radio shack to ours. If I remember correctly, it was too noisy and I ended up wrapping some foam around it until I got the sound to the right level.

Dale, this is a good idea. Thank you for the suggestion.

We saw your coach in the desert in January but you were out when we were there.

I tried the Radio Shack buzzer idea but couldnt figure out the proper wiring so I just extended the existing 2-wire leads from where they are now [under dash in front of passenger seat] and relocated the flasher unit directly under the drivers dash--works/sounds better. They also sell "noiser" flasher units at local parts stores but you still need to relocate it closer to the dirve's side.

All that is required is a meter or test light. Pull the flasher slightly out of its socket, so that you can probe the connections between the socket and the flasher, with the other lead from your meter connected to ground. The proper wire to connect to, is the one that flashes 12 volts off and on when the turn signal is on. The other wire will have a constant 12 volts when the turn signal is on. Tie into the wire that flashes 12 volts, add a ground and you have the two leads to your buzzer.
