NEED Experienced 96 GeorgieBoy Owner Help

1) We bought a 96 Georgie Boy Cruise Master. Took it on 6500 mile trip with no major malfunctions. We just ovenighted most of the time, so didn't do a full set-up. We setup for a weekend in Iowa and I couldn't get the Jacks to work. No Power indicated at the Panel. I had a truck mechanic look at it he was no help and caused my headlights to go out. Does anyone have any experience with the jack wiring, operating procedure, etc. The manual sucks!

2) Next, I'm trying to winterize the easiest way. I'd like to inject the RV Antifreeze the easiest way possible. Anyone with specific help, Please let me know.

3) When we were at campgrounds with hook-ups, I was able to fill the tank, but then the water overflowed and we were only able to use the tank/pump. When we had our camp trailer, we could run direct to the "shore" pressure. Any thoughts?

I will mention that the 96 GMB CM RV only had 38500 when we got it. and with all that hard driving we didn't use one drop of fluids except for the oil change. And...there weren't any other hiccup with the RV except the electrical issue.

I owned a 97 Georgie Boy Maverick, my wife didn't like the idea of using the RV antifreeze so I just blew the lines out using a small compressor with an adapter that fit into the water line. I would drain the water tank and then leave 1 faucet open, start the compressor and then just go from faucet to faucet until all the water was purged. I also drain the fresh water tank. I do use some RV antifreeze in each of the Pee Traps and some in the black water tank.

I have a 2002 Monaco Windsor now and do the same thing, more faucets and each run is separate so it takes longer. I also have to purge the washer and dryer and the ice maker. Haven't had a problem doing this for +17 years and it is easier to put it back into operation since you don't have to worry about the pink stuff.

I have a 99 cruise master. In main fuse compartment outside front driver side, my bigfoot system has a circuit breaker just for the jack system. It has a red lever that should be pointed straight down. If not then reset it.

RE: NEED Experienced 96 GeorgieBoy Owner Help

Thanks for the responses, so far. I was thinking about not using the RV AF but I have used it in home applications before and I'm not worried about it. What concerns me more is finding all the drains, traps etc.

I had a 2000 GB Pursuit 30ft. Unless they changed things in your wet bay should be a valve that you close when on city water and open when on the tank. When on city it is all gravity pressure from the shore hose, don't need the pump. Also there in there should be all your drains for hot and cold and water tank. I would open them and let them drain for awhile and then close them and start with the red stuff. To me a few gallons of the pink stuff was insurance against cracked lines. Disconnect the shower hose from the faucet and let it drain, do the same with the outside shower if you have one and in the how water heater compartment behind the how water tank should be bypass valves that allow you by closing them to not pump a gazillion gallons of the pink stuff into the hot water tank. I would open the drain on the hot water tank and after it drains completely use a turkey baster and shoot some pink stuff in the tank. As mentioned also dump some down the toilet and all the sinks to get into the ptraps. finally I would hook up a hose connected to a cheapy pump which would draw pink stuff from its jug into the system. It helps to have a helper just so you can go faucet by faucet. Sounds involved but really only took a little over an hour to do.
