RED 340 Spyder panels

Just a heads up to RED340 owners.

The other "spyder" panels (bath, front door and bed area)in the coach (not the main touch panel) are powered by a coin cell battery. They are NOT connected to the normal coach 12v system.

So if you have a panel problem, try a new battery (CR2032). The panel face just snaps onto a carrier attached to the wall.

There is no mention of this in the owners manual

Very interesting........I would have never known this. Not an issue yet, but it sounds like a 100% chance it will be. Did you receive any kind of warning that the battery was low? Doubtful, but curious.

This tidbit of information came from Tiffin, after I asked why I couldn’t turn the panel backlights on like other owners seemed to be able to. I then pulled a panel off the wall to verify the information as I couldn’t believe it had a battery…sure enough it does and no wires connected to it. The panels are connected by RF.

Interesting you did not know.

When we had our walk through with LaMesa RV (Phoenix) this was explained and the tech pulled a couple of panels and showed us the battery (i.e. slide control at drivers seat and control by the kitchen). We took possession in September 2020 of our 2021 340. The walk thru was very informative. We traded a Class A gasser for the new diesel, so he concentrated on the differences, E.G., spider controls, DEF, AquaGo, starting the diesel, and diesel generator, etc. We had bought the gasser from them in 2014. We also specifically requested a Powerglide Chassis when we ordered the 340 in July 2020, which we received. I have read posts on this board that say 340's are ONLY available with Freightliner chassis. As long as Tiffin had them available, PowerGlides are/were available.

Good morning. Are you saying the slide switch on the driver seat and Spyder panel in the kitchen also have batteries to replace? Just want to make sure I understood.


Thanks

The slide switch on the driver and passenger seats also have a battery. The main spider touch panel across from the refrigerator is wired to coach power.

I should say that this is true in my 2020 model, might not be true in another year’s model.
