Also, we live in Chesapeake Virgina and are wondering where you bought it? Are you happy with the dealer? Thanks!
Yes, we love the sofa and also have the ottomans. It is a very comfortable sofa and guests have also said it was comfortable as a bed when brought down all the way. We have bought 6 Winnebagos from McGeorges Rolling Hills starting in 1997. Ask for Doc Holiday and tell him the Hannaford's sent you He will take good care of you. If you do decide to buy a Tour or any Winnebago please consider joining WIT and one of the local chapters. We are the Tascas and my DH is the VA state president of WIT. You will not find a better group of people to camp with and learn about RVing. Doc will fill you in on our group if you see him...McGeorges are BIG supporters of the Virginia WIT organization. Please give us a call if you have any questions at all. Phil and Glenda Hannaford (757) 427-0581

What is the procedure to turn down the volume on the warning buzzer for "Jacks Down" ?

I am not sure there is one, for obvious reasons. But I know what you mean. Yesterday I was running the engine to bring out the slides while parked next to our house. I wanted to let it run for awhile and I'm sure our neighbors could hear the alarm If you find out how you can do it let me know I'm thinking they don't want us to "forget" to turn it back up when we are done....unless of course it resets itself after you turn off the engine.

Winnebago must have an in line change...our 13 tour has no jacks down alarm until the parking brake is released...which also brings up the jacks!

That doesn't sound right. We ordered our Tour in late Sept. and got it in Dec. When was yours made? Asked DH about this, since he is usually the one behind the wheel. He said our alarm goes off when you start the engine and stops when you release the brake and retract the levelers. Not sure why yours would be different. Let me know if you find out.

OK I'm perplexed. I know it was going off yesterday while I had the engine on. I had gone out to do some cleaning and I had to open the slides so I turned on the engine. My husband said let it run for about 20 min. Well I lost track and was running the vacuum so I really wasn't being bothered by the alarm. He came knocking on the door and said, "turn it off", the alarm is probably annoying the neighbors. I had not disengaged the brake I know and the jacks were down. Don't know why the difference

Bob,

I'm assuming yours go off when you start the engine since that's why you are asking how can you turn it down

Ditto,

Do your jacks down lights come on when you turn on the key? DH asked me to ask you that. Could it be a fuse? But if 3 of you are having the same experience that would be a real coincidence.

Yup lights come on...Lazydays tech showed me a manual that only alarm is when brake released....3 other Tours made me a believer too!

I read my DH your reply and I do believe if it wasn't 11:00 PM he would have gone out and started the coach. It will be something he will do ASAP since he is the one who was "feeding" me the information. I, WE, will stand corrected if in fact ours behaves like the others. I will keep you posted.

Hello All,
When you turn on your ELECTRIC heaters, the roof top units, can you turn on only one at a time? Like, turn on #1 and not #2 or turn on #2 and not #1. My #2 will not turn on at all. The dealer told me yesterday that was normal and that Winnie told them #2 does not turn on.....Crazy right? So, I called Winnie today and Erin said they should both work (makes sense). Would all you folks that have the 2013 Tour/Ellipse please test your systems for me. There was another Tour at the same dealer with the same customer complaint. Thanks Les

well the wait begins. after doing our homework over the last six months, we just got back from the dealer and finally ordered a new tour 42qd. orderd the black garnet. now we have to wait for confirmation from forest city if it will be built as a 2013 or 2014. the sales of the tour has been so good that have already exceeded their 2013 model allocation.

just counting the days.........

YIPPEE You are going to love the Tour QD. We also have the black garnet and I love the color. We got the vino interior with coffee maple. As a matter of fact it is the same as the one in the brochure for the Tour. I know it will be just like you want. It is a great coach and I hope you have many wonderful trips planned. Any idea when you can take delivery?
