Bob, if you have the 450D Aqua Hot, the electric element is not going to provide a lot of hot water. For a Navy shower it will do but if you prefer a nice full shower, you need to run the burner.

Do you find that the "electric" alone gives you ample hot water in a campground scenario, or do you/ I need to keep the "gas" turned on as well?

I vaguely remember it being covered in the PDI, but I don't remember the answer.

Thanks!!!
Bob, I answered your Aqua Hot question but I goofed and attached to the wrong thread.

His thinking was that, by dumping the rear air bags it allows the rear end to drop lower, which then prevents the rear jacks from overextending when the coach is leveled...

Secondly, the techs weren't able to get the keyless entry programmed, so they had to order a new keypad.

Now......you see where this is going yet?

I've asked John to order the parts necessary to do both items....

And for some dang reason I've already lost a front beauty cap on one of the front wheels....
Wrt front beauty cap......lost a few. If anyone knows how to keep then on, let me know. Got the first one fron Renegade (so it says Renegade on it) but now I just get the stock Freightliner ones.

Yep..... right front it is.

And thanks Gary.....I took a Navy shower this morning and would probably be ok with doing that, but there's a reason I have a tankless WH in the sticks and bricks and it's not because of me. LOL!! The little woman spends more time doing her hair. Of course, I'm just jealous as you know I don't have any!!

Happy to report that the diesel burner gave me more than enough hot water, but hilariously must report that I still take those " get wet,soap up and rinse off" showers, with turning off the water in between.... Even when I had the top of the line Newmar rig with the Oasis I did it... Guess old habits are hard to break.
Now I know the "missus" isn't gonna have any part of those "Navy showers" so maybe it's my subconscious way of saving the planet.

I flew home to Virginia last night and left the rig in Fort Myers all buttoned up and awaiting our return after the Christmas holidays.
As others have discussed throughout the forum, I too turned the water off at the post, in order to prevent a water disaster from occurring in our absence.

Looking ahead to January, I'll need to run the rig over to North Trail when I get back, they ordered a new entry touch pad and also ordered the parts to facilitate dumping the rear air bags as previously discussed.

While I'm certainly excited for Christmas and the smiling faces of my two young grandsons, I must admit it was tough leaving that warm Florida sunshine yesterday afternoon.

Just got a call from John @ North Trail regarding the issues with my coach....

1) It seems the door and keypad for the Verona is manufactured by a company called Challenger. In speaking with Challenger, they want the door code information off of a sticker on either the frame of the door or the door itself before they will send a replacement keypad.
Thankfully, I left the coach keys with a neighbor and I'll get him to take a pic and send it to me, so I can forward it to John.

2) Renegade is replacing the front right beauty ring under warranty.

3) The air bag dump dash switch is not a warranty issue, but they have ordered the parts.

For those that have never looked at the edge of your entry door, this is the sticker that Renegade or your dealer will want, if you ever need work done on your door or the keyless entry. Both the door and keyless entry are supplied by a company called Challenger.
I had to supply this information to North Trail, before Challenger would send them a replacement key pad.

I'm not sure what your rig is, but in the Verona/Verona LE platform, when the rig comes to a stop, the air bags in the rear of the coach are fully inflated. When you push the level button, the front jacks don't have to travel far to start being effective, but the rear jacks travel farther to reach the ground and as such start "leveling" the coach. This "travel" causes the rear jacks to extend further and the "worry" is that they "could" overextend.

By "dumping" the rear air bags you in essence lower the rear of the coach and allow the jacks to be more effective with less travel of the cylinder.

Is it totally necessary? Well.... maybe not, but I'd rather err on the side of caution and have that extra jack travel for when and if I need it, rather than always being that much overextended.

And while I'm at it, where the heck have EdS and Frank Tamez been on the forum?

** On edit, I see you own an '18 Verona bunk house..... NICE!!**
