Has anyone with a Tour or Ellipse 42QD had the fancy wood trim around the ceiling fan above the bed split? Ours split across the grain in 3 different places. Just curious if anyone else has seen this...I suspect its from taking the coach from a humid climate back east to a dry climate in New Mexico...but not sure. I put some Howard Feed-N-Wax on. Hopefully that will help. Any info on this would be appreciated.

Yes. Ours did, as did the ceiling piece in the main part of the coach.
I think it's due to what you said, and due to possible uneven torque of screws holding the facade up there. That coupled with the travel stresses while going down the road. These are my guesses.

BTW, that Howard Feed-N-Wax is great stuff.

Thanks for the quick response on this. I'm glad I'm not the only one with this problem. I called Winnebago and they told me they have never seen this problem. It could be a problem with the way the wood was sealed. I may try some wood epoxy and see how that works. It's a shame since this is really a nice looking feature. BTW-I the living room just started cracking too. Thanks again.

I will be looking carefully at ours.

Remove only the screws just behind the top of the tv holding the tv bracket to the coach then lift the tv and bracket up and then out.

Leveling System Hydraulic Leak

I found a sizable puddle of hydraulic fluid around the front left leveling jack when I retrieved our motor home from storage today! All 4 jacks retracted OK, however, now the two front jacks won't extend (the rear jacks work). Has anyone had a similar problem? Is this a problem that a shade tree mechanic with tools can repair?

Thanks for your help.

Thanks for your help.

I believe that your front left jack cylinder or hydraulic hose blew. You can usually determine by visual inspecting which one needs to be replaced or repaired
I have replaced both rear jacks and hoses. It is not difficult with the correct tools. Please know it is very dangerous to work under your coach without properly supporting it.

It is difficult to replace the hoses in the same location that the factory did. The front hoses can be removed and replacements made and with the gen set all of the way out, you can replace them. I had the RV dealer replace 4 of mine. I have concrete ramps to drive on, I would not get under the RV other wise.

2014 tour questions

I have 3 questions:

When you are trying to charge your batteries while in storage,
do you have have to turn on the "inside the door" chassis and house switches or can you leave them off and just plug it into a 115v 20 amp circuit?
Clearly you cannot read the voltage on the inside monitor without turning the "inside the door" switched on but does it charge with them off?

When I take the Tour out after a long storage, many times I have to raise the bed and unplug and replug the bed air mattress controller. Anyone else had that problem?
If so, any solution?

Also , has anyone installed one of those hydraulic "bed lifts" on the master bed?
Is so, what size did you use?

Thanks very much,
Don Schrock

Regarding charging. The information I received from Winni was to leave the switches on. They also said to leave the step off as the converter cannot keep up with the amp draw.


There is a Trik-L-Charge system and if the switches are off the Trik-L-Charge will not work to keep both sets charged.


I store mine plugged into 110v. I pull in to my storage and just turn the engine off. Step out and reach in and turn the steps off. plug in and go home. Week, month or two go to take it for a ride or load up and travel and it starts and all systems are a go,

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

I had a problem where the bed would not go up and down. There is a reset switch down near the bottom that was flashing red. Pushing it would take car of the problem but it would come back. I had the coach in for service at the dealer. They looked at it and fixed the problem. I don't recall what they did but it was a minor repair.

Thanks Jesse.

I apologize for taking so long to respond...I have been off the internet grid for the past couple of weeks.

I am going to replace all of the hoses to make sure this doesn't happen again for a long time. Thanks for the caution regarding working under the coach with supporting it. I have 4, 20 ton jack stands that I always use when working underneath.

Thanks again,
Dale

TURN SIGNAL CONTROLLED SIDE MIRRO CAMERAS. I had my radio programmed to show the GPS until I turned one of the turn signals on. Then it would show the respective mirror camera view. I displayed the rear camera on my aux screen. The mirror cams quit working. Turned out to be a device called a switcher(not sure why they don't call it a switch). Which is located inside the dash. Winnebago part number CVS300-01B, $230. Found CVS300-01 from RV Cams on the internet for $128.23(shipping included). Removed the raised portion of the dash above the instrument cluster. Remove the four screws above instrument cluster, raise that panel and pull towards you. Switcher is beneath towards front. Swap the connectors from old to new, unscrew the old switcher and install new. Replace panel and good to go. Be careful to install the RCA connectors correctly. The other plug ins only go one way. Just like to see lane I'm entering plus see behind me to make sure Fireball Roberts isn't trying to blast into same lane. Sometimes Fireball does not know what turn signals indicate.
