Fleetwood/Bounder; ICC switch, Greywater drain, jack system

I have a new Fleetwood Bounder 35K, have 3 questions:

What is an "ICC" Switch and what does it do?

Does anyone else have the "Grey water" drain "pull a vacuum" when dumping? I have checked all inside vents and the roof vents for obstructions. Dealer says never heard of the problem. After it "burps" goes on and drains. Any thoughts?

The jack system has quit working on auto down. I can lower jacks manually. PG says it is a "failure error" and a wiring issue since motor does not run. It runs on manual. I know it is under warranty but I am on the road. I have shut off all 12V and 110V power but it did not reset. Anyone with and idea?

Howdy and welcome. The ICC switch is to "flash" your marker lights like big rigs when passing, etc. We have not experienced the gray tank vacuum. Since your jacks will work using the manual setting, I'd "assume" you will need warranty service. Have you contacted PowerGear? They will answer an email but not a phone call.

The ICC switch is to flash your clearance lights when someone does you a favor....e.g. letting you into a line of cars or letting you pass.

Havent' had the burping problem on my 35K.

No problem with my jacks but I had to learn how to use them . Sounds like a good warranty check...FW was great to take care of my problems.

#1. It flashes your marker lights. Truckers use it to thank each other .
#2. I'd add that to dealer punch list. It should be throughly checked out while you're still under warranty .
#3. The techs at PG are good. I would have that attended to by the dealer as well.

Update on my issues; Today I headed for a dump site, retracted all jacks. The left rear did not come up all the way. I retracted it manually, upon returning to set up, all was back to normal.

When I hooked up the sewer hose, the hole, did not allow for a tight seal and the grey water did not " pull a vacuum as in the past. Maybe my issue is the tight seal vs coach venting. I do not know for sure, just observations.

I'll take a shot but I may be saying things you know:

You do realize that jacks go down via hydraulics but come up due to a spring. Slow springs are common.

Your gray water issue sounds like it does lack an air source to let it get away and the roof vent is the usual air source. Your last experience sounds like its merely using the space around the connection (loose fitting) as the air source.

That's all based on what I'm guessing from your post.

Be of good cheer ... we all have these and worse issues but Fleetwood seems to be better than most at helping fix them. Its just that you have to call and/or visit them. I've had great luck with help at the factory and at Lazy Days dealer.

Bill

p.s. no, I've never had the burping or vacuum issue so that sounds like a vent blockage to me.

I'm having the burping problem too. I never experienced it when dumping with just a hose into a dump station but now that the coach is being used to full time and is hooked up with a good seal, it is burping. It drains for a while then slows down to almost nothing and then a minute later you hear a woosh and the rest drains rapidly as normal. Not sure what's causing it.
