The manual for the road side slide out is attached. I used the reset process on page three to fix my issue.

If I may ask where is home? I ask because the Fleetwood web site says there are service centers in IN and OR and Dennis just mentioned a new one in TX.

The former Ancira dealer in Alvarado, TX was purchased by Fleetwood to turn it into a factory repair center,

Al,
Decatur is about 785 miles from my home in Astoria, S.D. We're 1/2 mile from Minnesota on the very eastern edge of the state.
I'll be attending the rally in June at the factory, hopefully, not in the same coach that I'm having brake problems.
Lemon law attorneys in Tempe, AZ., have taken on my case and we're going after Ford.
Let the good guys finish last...

The reported elsewhere shower water leak has surfaced on my coach too. Water on the floor at the shower door started happening. Looking at the threshold track there is a gasket under it. That gasket was not doing its job. About 5 minutes with some clear silicone caulk on the shower side of that track corrected the problem.

On our first trip,a couple years ago,the first shower I took,had water all over the floor,our shower is same as yours.I found that at the front and rear,where the side rail meets the bottom rail,there was no caulk in those corners.To make matters worse,the drain holes in the lower track were drilled 1/4" up from the bottom of track,so was holding water,making the leak worse.I caulked the corners while in maine, then upon returning home I elongated the drain holes to the bottom, been fine since.Amazing how these issues just continue year after year.

So the GM Workhorse chassis is not an option with the new Bounders?

Workhorse went under quite awhile back (2012'ish I think). Recently ressurrected in the commercial truck chassis business but no longer manufactures RV chassis's. Last May they released a press release that they were going to re-enter the RV market but nothing has come of it yet.

2016 Bounder drivers window

I wonder if Fleetwood at the factory can retrofit the drivers side window with a wider one to improve visibility and safety? Those of us without a loft are paying a high price regards visibility from the cockpit.

My guess is that they changed the wall structure to accommodate the optional loft. Worth asking but my guess is it would be difficult.

Not really an answer but an interesting similarity. My coach is at the factory now having some warranty work done. One of the things I ask was replacing my bedroom slide with the anniversary one. The cost to remove and re-wall the original back window, install two small windows on the side, and the interior changes was well over 10K. I just figured (the lacky in me) remove the entire slid and replace it with one of the ones they already have, not an entire remod. Needless to say that idea was off the table.
They are coming up with a pricing to just replace the rear wall window with a solid one then installing the two small one's in the side. No exterior work required then(graphics and wall seal, etc). Only interior would be adding the day/night shades. Waiting on that pricing but probably be 3-4k so either way looks like I will just stay with the super large window in my back and the knobs. LOL

Found the Vacuflush breaker. In the inverter compartment to the left of the battery control center there are a series of fuses mounted on the wall. Above the fuses are 2 circuit breakers. One is labeled power cord reel the other is labeled Vacuflush, both of the breakers on mine are wrapped in black electrical tape. The labels are on the wires going to the breakers.
