Questions in regard to my '06 Alpine ApexWe
We just got back from our Thanksgiving trip to visit family, and upon arriving home discovered we had lost the airfoil that sits at the top rear of the roof! We didn't see or hear anything, but it's gone and while departing,it hit our toad and broke the windshield. That's already replaced, but I'm wondering if anyone might know where I might find another one of those foils? Short of that, being a sheetmetal fabricator in a pastlife, I could build one.
My next surprise just came yesterday. As I was opening the large streetside storage slide-out, the power quit. This does happen from time to time, and is cured by resetting the pop-out reset button in the hydraulic pump locker. This time the reset button light was out. There was no power. Also, all the power was out on the dashboard. Nothing came on when I turned on the key. I reset the Vansco, no joy. I've looked in the obvious places at fuses and breakers, and don't see anything amiss. I get the feeling that I'm missing something obvious, but I can't put my finger on it.
Since the Apex uses the special dual pump manifold, I tried switching to the secondary pump and using the control switches in the pump compartment, and they worked.??? Also the streetside switches worked. I don't get it. Secondary pump must be on a separate circuit. But still no 12V power to primary, and all dashboard instruments.
This Apex keeps throwing new problems at me, just when I think I've got it all figured out!
