Along with the upgrades we (she) decided to replace the front window curtain.

Have you looked into replacing the front window curtain?

$400 upwards for this little project. So a little figuring and research we found cloth shower curtains (not plastic) that would work. We purchased 3 curtains cutting one in half and sewing it on the end of the other two. (she did not me) Folding them in half made the correct length fitting the front window. The cost was $30.00 and they are washable.

Nice job, our curtain is only ok, it does have some grubby marks. I normally put up reflectx sun shields on each window, it's does a great job of blocking out light.

Thanks, Green was the color of the old ones and had been caught in the door a few times. She was tired of the green color was the other factor in changing them.

I want to love my Daybreak!

We purchased a 1997 Daybreak with 68,000 on it. Trying to figure out the electronics. Hope to dive into it a little tomorrow. Not sure I'm getting any power from the house batteries and I can't start the generator. Looking forward to our first trip once I get this thing figured out. We bought it at a dealership that sells cars. The previous owner was an older couple that said they were too old to keep using it so they traded in on a Buick. We got a good deal on it I believe. They kept all the records and even have all the original paperwork right down to the blueprints and owners manual for everything from the amazing 13 in tv to the fans in the roof vents. I thought that was really cool. Now I just need to figure out how this thing works! It's our first Motorhome. 🤞

That's a clean looking rig, Looks a lot like my 96. If you have the original Damon manual it should give you the BCC wire diagram in the back of it. You will need to check out the house batteries. If it was setting a long time they most likely are dead or have been disconnected. They are what powers the Battery control center relays. That is why I had you try the lights on the vent control to see if they worked. That gives you the battery level unless they are disconnected or dead.

Thanks, the house batteries were replaced by the dealer and when I push the battery connect button I get nothing. No lights on the monitor or any sounds. I'm going to test them later. Was raining yesterday so couldn't get to it.

I thought the house batteries charge from the alternator also? I have driven it a few times but still nothing.

I believe they do, but if the batteries are completely dead you may not get enough of a charge.

The alternator does charge the batteries, Have you checked to see if the house batteries are connected? Do you have 12vdc on batteries?

If they are disconnected driving around wont charge them. I have a quick connect on mine to prevent draining when stored or when not used for more then three days, or when not hooked up to shore power for extended period of time. (three days or longer)

So my batteries are basically dead and the charger wouldn't start with the cables hooked up. Is this normal when wired in series? I took the cables off one battery and now it will charge.
