Strange...I will look at mine this afternoon...those lights are 12 volt...but you probably already know that...check underneath your inverter...should be 3 small reset buttons...make sure one of them did not trip...

Thanks for everyone's help. Does anyone have any ketchup for the egg all over my face.
The trip we took with Daughter and 2 grandkids was the first time my daughter had been in an RV since trailer days 20+ years ago when all ceiling lights were turned off at the light itself. No wall switches in those days. I just kept out of the way while little people were bedded down and yup- daughter turned all the lights off at the fixture. I wont miss that again.

That's funny. Got to love someone else touching things. Glad it was a simple thing. My DW always starts with "is it turned on!" LOL

Everyone sure has been quiet since early September. Hope y'all are out enjoying the RV's.
I've been working to get my garage built & not gone anywhere since June. I know my RV feels abused!!! We do have a short trip planned at thanksgiving and working up details to take a long trip in January for a few weeks.

Enjoy!!!

Glad life is good. That's the way it's supposed to be. Especially if you're supposed to be a boomer enjoying retirement with a big pot of gold. HUH! (Anyone seen one recently) My Lippert Ultra Level is still not working as I would expect. After talking with Lippert customer support who are really helpful and concerned and had suggested that I had air in the system which proved not to be the case I took the coach to a Freightliner shop who suggested that the solenoid that diverts the fluid flow during deployment or retraction might be the issue. It's mounted on the manifold above the pump. Anyone else heard of this?

I have not heard of that...are you trying to level on a fairly level site? Mine will lift a tire off the ground if there is more than about 2 inches incline/decline...its rime for a 2 X 4 board when that happens.

We have been going to Bluegrass festivals and leaf peeping in the Shenandoah's...

I also finally came to the conclusion that my driver side mirror sticks out way to far...I cant really go much further towards the front...but I got to do something with it...!

We're enjoying Bluewater Key. Had a small problem a few days in. I had a self inflicted "brown out" problem causing the contactor in the auto transfer switch to burn up. Funny, 3 electrical supply houses in Key West were of no help. I wound up buying/installing a new transfer switch just to get things right. While awaiting delivery, I just bypassed the shore power contactor. All fixed & life is good!

This is a bit too technical for me but I'd like to understand. I presume the auto transfer switch is in the power cable compartment and is what goes 'clunk' when the coach is plugged into A/C. Did you cause the self inflicted 'brown out' by trying to run too many appliances. Excuse my lack of knowledge. I envied the guys in the shop who could fix anything but us lot in the corner office had other things to be concerned with. Please enlightened one of the 'suits'!

Permanent leveing in storage ?

Any thoughts on keeping Rv Class A on levelers during storage.
Area is a bit damp and gravely. So thought using levelers might work for keeping tires round at least those off ground.
YES WE ARE NEWBIES WITH A CLASS A AFTER SELLING OUR A CLASS C.

We keep our 2011 Astoria leveled during the winter months with cover on. I run the generator monthly with a half load on by turning on hot start and a few other items...the light off the engine un level and let tranny heat up to about 100 degrees or so. Strongly suggest getting jack pads to put under each jack...Click image for larger version

I also store with jacks down. It's good about once a month to spray the legs with silicone to help keep clean. Jacks come right back up after several months of being down. Hopefully by Christmas I'm parking in the new garage Still going to spray jacks & run gene. Will need to vent gene exhaust out garage.

Changing fluids

Don't know how many of you do your own maintenance, but getting fluid back in the engine & Tranny is no easy task on mine. I changed my oil & filter today and what a pain to get the oil back in. The DW bought all different kinds of funnels & drain tubes, but when it came to it, I used a water bottle with the bottom cut out.
The back of the coach over hangs the inlets for all the fluids. really a bad design. Anyway, got my annual maintenance done on that piece & doing the tranny filter & fuel filter tomorrow. Going to use a pump for the tranny fluid.
We are heading off for thanksgiving and looking forward to the trip.
