New to Us 2010 Winnebago Tour 40CD

I just wanted to do an official introduction as owners of a new-to-us 2010 Winnebago Tour. We have had travel trailers for 11 years, then a fifth wheel for five years and this is our first class A.

We live in Lancaster Couty, PA, and want to take this very nice class A on longer cross-country trips over the next few years. We travel with four big greyhounds so we needed a floor plan with plenty of floor space for dog pillows and this unit -- with three slides -- has floor space.

I am bumping into a lot of questions as we prepare to store the unit for winter. For example I don't know if we should store the vehicle at winter temperatures with the batteries fully charged and both coach and chassis power turned off or if it's better to plug in the coach and leave both systems on and charging. I also wonder if the batteries charge the unit if it is plugged in while both disconnect switches are switched "off."

Lots of questions but I know this is the place to ask them.

TPMS Question

TonyDi, we have a TST TPMS too. It's model TM-507SG. Can you air up the tires through the valve stem sending units or do they need to be removed first? I don't wnat to damage anything.

Definitely leave it plugged in. Your chassis battery may or may not charge from inverter/charger. Check your Battery Volt Meter to see if both batteries are at charging level. To find out if batteries charge with Battery Switch switched to off, measure voltage at batteries with volt meter in both positions of switches.

Another option is to remove the batteries and keep in a warm garage with Trickle Charger on them.

Thank you John! I worry about hauling six batteries in and out of the coach, and reconnecting them correctly, so I think my preference would be to keep the batteries charging during the cold weather. I can turn the shut off switches back on if that's needed to charge. With switches "on" I am showing 13.2-13.6 volts.

Grapehound, welcome to the forum and to Winnebago. We have a 2010 Journey, and the charger/converter is a three stage (bulk when batt's are low, charge when they are not full, and float when they are charged). Therefore you can leave it plugged in. Also, it trickle charge the engine batt's. I assume the batteries need to be connected.
Here's a number you should put on speed dial 800.537-1885, it's the line to Winnebago Service Tech's. They've been a tremendous help to me over the years.

With those sending units you can air up right through them. On the batteries I usually make sure they are charged up and disconnect the cables for the winter. I live in SW Mn so we get some pretty cold temps. except for this year so far.
