97 Pace Arrow water heater, furnace & jack problems
I have a 97 Pace Arrow 35' Class A on a Ford 460 chassis with 31,xxx miles. I've owned this for 13 months & I am regretting this severely. The nightmare just continues.
Can't get any power to the hot water heater. No power at the "elec hot water" heater switch in the bedroom. Rigged a temp 120 volt power line to the gas valve switch. Disconnected gas valve & we are getting propane up to the gas valve. Disassembled the gas valve, everything appears to be in good shape. Tested the "air flow" via the diaphragm device, seems to be ok. Reassembled, reconnected, still no propane after the gas valve. Possibly the solenoids are bad? It would be nice to be able to take hot showers & hot water for dishes.
We couldn't get the heat to come on. Not sure if that is partly to do with not getting the hot water heating system to work??
Having an issue with the hydraulic jacks. No on/off light on the control panel for the hydraulic jacks by "Power Gear". When connected the jack pump sounds like it's working, but they are fully retracted & don't stop until you pull the fuse at the cylinder near the passenger front wheel.
The fuel gauge has never worked since the day I got it. Anyone else have that issue? Suggestions?? Stories?? How much did it cost to have fixed?
I also don't understand what the "shed" light on the electronic climate control panel means.
On a good note, took apart the motorized stair motor, cleaned the brushes & got those working. Also go the propane portion of the refrigerator working.
ANY comments, suggestions, stories & experiences are GREATLY appreciated by this rookie RV owner. Thanks!
