    Scott, My dimensions 2000 energy management system appears to not be functioning correctly. Door Guy (Barry Miller) tells me he thinks you replaced yours with a magnum. I can measure 12.8 volts DC going in but no AC out. It does charge the batteries when plugged into shore power and inside AC plugs work when on shore power. Did you replace yours with a magnum and if so run into any problems? Did you need to replace the control panel in the galley?

    While looking at that I noticed water at the base of the water heater. I removed the inspection plate and can see all four hoses and there is not a leak at connections so must be old age rusting it out on the bottom. Only about $450-500 on the internet. I'll do a little searching on the Magnum to get a feel for that unit. Any how any thoughts or suggestions appreciated. I had written a lot more in this message but told mush be less than 1000 characters.

No start with ing switch ....I finally found a pannel on the topof the frame behind the batt. comp. It has three electrical components mounted on it,the component to the far right appears to be a solnoid ,Ican run a jumper wire from batt.hot ,with ing. on and touch the center terminal and the unit will start.I am in need .of a drawing showing all electrical components between this solnoid and the ing. switch with locations. I have downloaded elect.prints from Winnabago and Freightliner but with my bad eyesight it is too hard to follow. Any help would be helpful.

    Hi Scott, thanks for all the info you gave me concerning hooking up my wrangler tow vehicle. It looks like I now have an understanding of which adaptor to buy for the blue ox tow bar. I will be ordering soon, once installed I will probably be picking your brain on how to properly wire the jeep up to be towable. Thanks again

    Good evening,
    I saw your wiring diagram and you mention diodes, what size do I need. I some electrical knowledge but resistors, diodes etc always through me. I have a 2013 Honda CR-V that I finally got around to installing the hitch on and want to get it ready to tow. Also where did you get the tail light converter? Is there a particular model that is better/reliable?
    Thank you in advance for your time.

    Scott,Thanks for the info.The zerk hose will be installed and if it only has one fuel filter it will have two,same with the blow- by it will be checked out.The coach is in Calif,still have things to take care of here in Alaska before I can leave and get on the road.Again thanks,will spend some time preparing it before I leave,much rather spend some time on it before I leave instead of having to fix it on the road.

    Hi Scott, I have come to the conclusion that you are the very person that I need to advise me about my coach and goldwing. I've tried to study the postings that are out there but I've come down to the wire in making a decision between a hydralift, tandem-tow, or rampage lift. I really want the Hydralift but I'm wondering if it's the right choice since you no longer use it. I have a 2014 Itasca Solei 38R and a 2007 GL 1800. Would you mind spending a minute with me in conversation?

    Sir, I came across your post about the wiring diodes. After the requisite research I came to the same conclusion about "in-line" diodes. My Jeep toad has a tow package with a four flat connector on the rear bumper, I intend to run that to the front and feed the MH to it for lights. My thoughts are I need to install a blocking diode on the OEM feed side of the brake and turn signals. Am I on the right track? Thanks in advance for your advise. Here are the diodes...

    Hi Scott, I see you asked about me on the post about the horsepower, etc. yes, we are doing fine; just finished a stint in AZ from 9 Jan thru 25 Mar at Quartzsite, Yuma and Parker. had a great time. No particular problems on this trip. The HWH jacks were giving me a fit before we left as the touchpad would tend to lock up and do NOTHING, i.e., dump bags, raise, lower, etc. After much discussion with HWH with no definite resolution, one day in Parker, I disconnected the plugs going into that circuit board under the steps, checked for corrosion, dirt, etc.(there wasn't any), plugged back in and it has been working fine since then. I dunno, I'll wait till the next mishap and regroup, I guess. Say, have you still got the Norcold or did you do a residential changeover. My friend, 1ciderdog, in OR has our identical coach and he is in the process of changing over to residential. I want to see how the 4 ea. 6V batteries handle it dry camping. Hang in there, always like your posts.
