Rebelangel, there is a link in the intro part of the forums that has a section that has owner manuals.

I am looking for sevice manuals and wiring diagrams for my 95 PA and found some online. They were quite expensive for the paper manuals ($400+) so Im in process of trying to find the DVDs with PDFs. Ill let you know if I see your 85 too!

Well I lubricated my slides when I slid them out under the bed you can Grease the rails but I probably would think it is an adjustment I would YouTube it to see how to adjust the bed maybe bring it in 1 in so it doesn't go all the way out or all the way to the edge that way you don't have to assist it the other reason could be the batteries if they're not fully charged they would drain as it's trying to move the motor just a thought

Our '06 wouldn't pull in one of the slides all the way, either. When I had it in for some other maintenance, the shop fixed it and said it's just a matter of an adjustment underneath and making sure things are tightened up so it won't slip again.

We're parked outside of Yuma for the winter now. I'll see if I can get in at Fleetwood next spring when we head back to Indiana.

Finally solved a minor problem (I hope) which was plaguing us for some time. Stuff had accumulated in the gray water drain line at an elbow past all the drains, causing water from the sink to back up into the shower, finally would barely run. Drain cleaner in the shower didn't work, just stayed in the trap then was too diluted when flushed with water. Tried a small drain snake but didn't help. Finally got up on the roof and dumped a bottle of drain cleaner down the vent stack, waited a bit, ran enough water to stand in shower and used a plunger at the shower drain. Apparently knocked it loose, drain seems to run fine now...no more grease down the drain for us, wipe stuff out with paper towels first instead...

Fuel Filler Pipe/Hose Size Mismatch

I lost the gas cap from my '06 PA and had trouble finding a replacement that fit. Since the filler pipe itself looked rusty and the hoses old, I found a replacement filler neck at GMPartsGiant.com, part #15721334.
(https://www.wholesalegmpartsonline.c...roduct=2776501)
I decided it would be another thing I'd replace while I was at it. I'd also put in new sections of the 2 hoses (fuel & vent) while I was at it. Simple enough job, right?

I bought new hoses and clamps at NAPA sized to match the pipe ends on the new filler neck. Since the old sections of hose were clamped onto both the old filler neck and the next downstream section of pipe, I ASSUMED both pipes were the same size. WRONG!! The old fuel line hose was actually 2" and I had bought 1 3/4" which fit fine on the filler neck. After much struggling and expressing my awe of Fleetwood manufacturing while trying to shove the undersized hose into place, I gave up and went back to NAPA to purchase another couple of feet of amazingly expensive 2" ID fuel hose.

Now you may rightly wonder how 2" ID hose is going to work on the 1 3/4" OD filler neck on the other end. I hadn't really noticed when I removed the old filler neck, but the neck itself begins as a 2" pipe and then narrows (WHY??) to the smaller diameter. The original 2" hose had been shoved all the way up onto the 2" part of the neck, even though there's no detent ring up that far for securing the hose clamp. Oh well, I guess since it isn't a pressurized line there's no worry about it. So I did what Fleetwood did and clamped it at the 2" section. I don't think it's going anywhere.

The vent line had something of the same problem, but the size difference wasn't as great. So I was able (with more verbal compliments for Fleetwood) to shove enough of the 5/8" hose onto the downstream vent pipe to get a clamp on it. Whew! Hard part done.

But... there's still the matter of fastening the collar of the filler neck to the fiberglass. On that collar (the OEM and the replacement) there are pre-drilled holes at 3 & 6 o'clock. Admittedly they're too small and would have needed to be enlarged for securing the neck, but Fleetwood decided to ignore them and place screws at about 2, 6, & 10 o'clock. Fair enough it would seem, but as it happens the collar on the neck is not continuous. There is no collar material below a horizontal line tangent to the bottom of the filler pipe. In other words, the screw placed into the fiberglass at the 6 o'clock position penetrated no part of the collar and SERVED NO PURPOSE WHATSOEVER.

So I'll drill one or two extra holes besides the 2 upper ones Fleetwood already made just to tighten things up a bit. I'm also using bolts, washers, and nylon locknuts instead of the original screws. I don't want to mess with this part of the coach again.

Oh yeah, and the gas cap that GMPartsGiant.com said would work with the filler neck didn't. I finally got one that fits at NAPA (part #703-1722, non-locking).

OK new and different electrical challenge

Right side turn signal won't work when parking lights are on, works fine when they are not (left side works fine). Dash indicator lights but does not blink. Front turn signal lamp lights (separate from parking lamp) but does not blink. Rear turn signal lamp (dual filament bulb) does not light. Tail lamp filament in that bulb works. Replacing bulb does not fix problem. Is it a good assumption that the problem is in the socket assembly? I will be tracing wiring with a voltmeter next week.

Don't forget to check your tow trailer plug wiring for shorts or bad contact. In the rt turn wiring.

Anyone know where to find a replacement bathtub for a 97 pace? It's 34 inches and makes it impossible to find.

Good point on the trailer plug. I don't believe I've checked the turn signals since I unhitched the trailer. That would certainly narrow down the problem area.


As for the bathtub, I can only recommend 2 options: start contacting RV salvage yards or see if your existing tub can be refinished. There are some businesses out there that specialize in used RV appliances and furnishings. Don't know if they would deal in bathtubs though.

Dave, I had the same or similar problem. Had many folks look and try to repair with zero results. I ran new wires underneath to solve problems. I upgraded my trailer and dealer sent me to a auto shop/store for brake controller installation. The installer ask what all the extra wires were for and I explained. He went under the dash for no more than 10 minutes, then started removing my extra wires. He told me the setup is the same as Crown Victoria(sp) and not many knew how to fix it. He did!
