Smile Pace Arrow Vision 1996 (Hi)


I bought this motorhome (33 ft Pace Arrow Vision) a year ago and it looks like I will need some help if I don't want to go broke . This is why I joined this group. And maybe, one day, I will be able to help beginners like me...

So far I had :
  • An engine sensor problem (made the engine run baddly until it's hot). (fixed at GM for 500$)
  • Park brake problem (fixed for 500$).
  • A ball join faillure (at 60 mph ) (fixed at GM for 2000$ (8.5 hours of work!!)).
  • A fridge problem (uncle fix 0$)
  • And now a flashing red light telling me the 3pt jacks are not up (but they are). Can anybody help me with this one?
I would also need the manuals (to find how I can check the oil level for the jacks, etc. etc.), since none where included with the vehicule. I guess the past owner wanted to keep a souvenir or needed a fire starter.

Thanks for the help.

Welcome to iRV2. We are glad you found us. You came to the right place to get answers to your questions. We have a wealth of info here just by asking. I would encourage you to repost your question down in the Fleetwood Products Owners Forum where you should get more response.

$500.00 seems to be a magic number when going to the shop. Happens to me a lot also.

Hello and Welcome. Restoring a MH seems to be quite and expense. But when you have the project finished, I am sure you will have loads of fun traveling. Good luck.

had the same issue on my 94 pace arrow once. That alarm will drive you nutso. It is likely a bad ground wire connection on the jack unit. Good luck. Once you get the bugs worked out you should have a very durable unit.
