Just returned from trips to irv2 rally an trip to Canada, had three problems.
One major one was the 3" drain pipe into the holding tank in 1/2 bath dropped or popped out of floor fitting causing a smelly situation in the water compartment below. We had returned from the Nat.Rally in PA. the week before an hit alot of hickup highways to an from on that trip. Most of highways in Canada were good but for a few miles, that did me in. I thought the seal was no good couldn't find one at 2 dealers
,but at a CG in Novi they had one.
Pulled toilet an found 3' pipe dropped out of floor fitting, the pipe was really held into the tank with sealent had to use grip pliers
to pull pipe up 2" to fit into floor flange that holds toilet to floor an seal. I haven't called Newmar yet to see if they use pipe cement on pipe an floor flange or just let it float within the floor fitting, because of vibrations while travelling. Thanks to the CG owner my pipe now has cement.
I checked my other toilet to see if that pipe was dropping an it hadn't. You can use a hooked piece of coat hanger wire an run it up 3" pipe from tank to floor level to see if there is a gap between top of pipe an fitting lip of floor flange where it should butt into flange. I used alot of bleach to get rid of smell an sanitize everything.
If you see a halfmoon of toilet paper down in your drain pipe you have a problem in the making.
Next problem lost Todd transfer switch,
have surge protector, but not wired in, but was on board to be..
Found A couple of stiff wires an pushed in switchs to get power into coach, turned off Gen ckt brakers, so no trouble,
if someone turned on. Had elect storm in Maine must have taken care of Todds ckt board.
Elect step broke 3/8" bolt, sheared off on gear plate that moves step in an out. Used a 3/8' stainless steel bolt, had to file head of bolt down for clearence between steel plates of moveable gear an mounting plate. Can't just replace bolt have to get new gear plate with bolt mounted to it. Part# 909776000 for a triple step type 25 made by Kwikee. My bolt works just fine, may just have to file head down a little more for better clearence. Bolt on gear plate looks like soft metal must give out from heavy weight on steps when entering coach. I use a step support when parked.
Other than a few problems the trip was GREAT.
