Bought a 1987 Lakeview Suncrest just a week ago. Was asking on another forum but I have a few problems.
The biggest problem is the on-board generator. It hasn't ran for close to five years, at least, and it seems the starter motor is weak as is the fuel pump. I think the fuel line may be collapsed and the sprag clutch on the starter may be going out. Or perhaps the solenoid is weak? I've tried starting it with the rv on, but I'm charging the battery to ensure that the battery isn't the cause.
I have a Koehler 4.5ckm21-RV generator.
As far as electrical I have a battery drain on the engine battery. I think it's a short, since it seems to disappear and appear randomly. But the battery drains over night regardless.
And the control panel that shows the tank levels doesn't work unless I connect the engine (chassis?) Battery. Is this how it's supposed to be wired?
And finally the headlights don't work. I was told it was probably the dimmer switch on the floorboard and I should try cleaning the contacts, which I'm going to do tonight. I have parking lights and my reverse, turn, and brake lights work. Just not headlights.
Any help on any of these issues is appreciated.
