Unhappy Getting to know 2016 Ventana 3709

Just traded our 13 yr old Winn Adventurer gas for 2016 Newmar Ventana 3709. They gave me the wrong book bundle. (for a front engine diesel)I am a full days drive away from them. They need to order a set from Newmar. Need some answers. 1. need master authority code to reprogram door handle entry. 2. What is the button on the lower left of steering column? 3. What do i need on to turn on to start the elec fireplace? Does it need more that 20A to start? 4. Will the inverter charge the 6 new AGM house batteries on a 20amp 120 V circuit or should i just connect a battery maintainer until i get a 30 amp circuit run to it in my garage? 5. What stuff does the engine batterys run? 6. What is the red paddle switch just under the headlight switch and above the outside mirror control do? The Salesman nor the maint tech new. 7. The kwikee elec 2 step is firm when the door opens but gets loose while we were putting stuff in. Is there a way to keep the steps extended without having the door open? More ??? as i find them!! Center light bulb in back bath above sink is out. How does it come out?

1. I did this successfully but will have to look it up - remind me if I don’t ge back to you in a couple days.
2. I believe that’s the reset button for the keyless entry - again I have to look it up but will do so soon
3. Don’t have one so....?
4. Your inverter/charger should happily charge your bank plugged in to a 20a circuit - just don’t turn on any other big loads and watch your Precision Circuits panel so see if you are load shedding. Do you have the resi-fridge and 2 xtra battery option? Sounds like it.
5. Engine start batteries run the map light above the drivers seat and the steps. Not much else.
6. Mirror heaters
7. The “Exterior Step” switch should do this
if the light is like the one below, just pry it out a bit and pull.

Just noticed you said bath sink. If itís like the one below, unscrew the grey ring around the base of the bulb. Be careful cause the glass shade will come with it.

If you have the electric kwikee two steps, there are simple cam adjustments on the top step to make sure steps are locked tightly when deployed. Itís a two minute job and you should be able to Google the ops manual. At least I was able to a while ago.

You will need shore power or the genny to run the fireplace. Look at the breaker panels (sub and main) to determine what will run on the inverter.
