Lightbulb Program Updates for 21 Entegras ONLY

First update is for Vega Touch connecting to wi-fi and the outside world for updates, etc. New for 21 is the Winegard wi-fi extender and the Winegard router mounted in the basement.
Problem is the instructions say to pair the Winegard wifi extender to the network THROW those instruction away! I won't go into all the problems that causes. Teds video explains the proper procedure. Second KEY factor is to wait 30 seconds on the second "search" function button push to acquire signals. The Vega Touch is now connecting to TWO pieces of equipment, the wifi extender antenna and the router, instead of just one as before with the PrepWave. The system works GREAT, you can now see wifi signals a mile away and not just the MH hotspot or cell phone. How to video. https://youtu.be/Xk-hwoPoGiU

The new for 21 is the mancerator toilet SaniMarin. From the factory it is programmed for a quick flush marine use, not a MH long run to the holding tank, it needs MORE water. The following link is the easy to program instructions to add more water to the flush cycle. Page 10, left hand side of the page. Press the button ALL 5 times to work in a rear bathroom. It finally works great. https://www.sanimarin.com/app/upload...n-complete.pdf

THANK YOU! Ted Cook and Justin with NIRVC for your OUTSTANDING work to solve these problems on my delivery. I know it will help earlier deliveries.

Looks like you might be the go to person for 2021’s as well as the Classics. I’m scheduled to pick up a new 21 on Thursday. I’ll be better prepared for the PDI now. Thanks

Isn't that the truth about Ted Cook. I was so SHOCKED to see him come around the corner in a golf cart this morning! He had already been here testing his fix on another 21 before coming to my coach. He was up all night catching a flight to be here on such a short notice to find the fix.
I hope all of his efforts work to fix the earlier released 21's. His fixes have already been relayed to production. Hopefully they are all corrected before shipping.

Have to give credit to Joyce as well, she was on this first thing Sunday morning and followed up again today to make sure the problems were resolved.

Can someone double check me? In reading the manual that Chuck gave us on page 10 bottom left side. It says what happens when the red light comes on and locks out. However the next sentence says hold down the normal button for 5 seconds to get to a normal cycle again.

So i am reading that you can unlock it once it locks out with the red light so you can flush again. Am I not reading this correct?

Thanks for the instructions. I’d programmed my WiFi extender using the phone and the winegard app. I learned I can select networks through the Vega touch. Very cool.

The toilet fix seems like it should do the trick. Great stuff.

Yes. When it locks out you can force the flush by holding the button down for 5 seconds. It locks me out at 80 or 90% tank capacity.

Before programming the toilet, the holding tank should be empty. We had to tilt my coach to get the program to take. The amber dump warning light on the flush panel cannot be on.

Those that have the previous installed mancerator toilets, I am sure programming instructions can be found on their website. The Sanicon installed in the 19 was fine, no dry flushes but the 21was a joke. It was equivalent to a 5 gallon bucket and a squirt gun

Thanks Chuck this has already helped and as I go through the issues I'm sure the forum will help immensely. It was great to meet you last week and now it's on to an alignment.

Hi Jim, it was a pleasure meeting you as well. Hope the new coach is doing well and the "just found" updates help. Just put on my first 150 miles and I need an alignment as well. Slight pull to the right and the steering wheel is slightly off center. Normal for me on new coach. Travel safe.
Chuck
