    Our kitchen sink sprayer seems to be working just fine with the on/off button on the side. Are you using a water filter when you either hookup to water or fill your fresh water tank? Sediments in the water could be causing it to stick and malfunction.
    We are not yet having any troubles with the tv sound. I do have it set up to go through the stereo also so I can have surround sound but most of the time we just have it on tv sound. Tv sound is not very loud so the speakers must be really small.
    Being in Illinois at fall yes the corn is all dead and ready for harvest! Children of the Corn will come and visit you at night! LOL Same here in Iowa, harvest is going full blast now.
    Can you give me the Dometic njmber you called about your A/C's? I have called a couple of times and they want me to call a service center! Thx in advance. I hope your troubles start to subside. Rod

    I am so sorry you are experiencing troubles! About that bubbling wall paper in the dinette slide....I am sorry but that sounds like you have water encroachment in the slide. Do you have the slide awning toppers? I do on all but the one living slide that is under the second awning. I really believe in these!
    I am going to try putting slide supports under my kitchen slide. I have two at home that are just sitting in the box. It really pulls tight at the top with about the correct spacing at the bottom. I even added foam at the top on the inside but in just a few short days it had smashed it. Thank you for that info!
    About that condensation above the entry door. I am guessing there is a space where there is no insulation and you are getting heat transfer. That is what causes condensation. Rod

    Not to mention we were relocated to Chapin, IL. ... I swear the filmed Children of the Corn here. It's nothing but an abundance of dead corn fields. Rainy, cloudy and in the 60s, we even had to use the heat!! :( which by the way, seems to work great. I miss the southern people, southern weather, sand. :(
    I will call about my window tomorrow and wish I knew how to stop the wall paper on my dinette slide from bubbling :(

    I did call lippert the other day about my kitchen slide out. We are not having issues, as of yet. I spoke to an Anthony in tech support. .... he suggested and agreed with me slide supports would be the best route to go for this slide if extending more than a weekend on occasion.
    I about feel over, I was led to believe this unit was manufactured for extended stay time. Why would they put this fridge here. I can only assume there is no way to haverify it relocated to the wall where the light and switch panel is and dead center of the frame lol. I'm sure there must be a way to reinforce that slide, lippert must can offer some modification suggestions.
    Right now, we are dealing with sound going in and out on our tv in the living room. If we change the channel the sound comes back on so we just return to the channel we were watching. It's so annoying.

    So sorry it has been a while. With my husband's work as a coating inspector out of the Tampa office, they have been loaning him out, and that translates to keeping us rolling.
    On the AC. We set them on AU, and they would run for what seemed like forever. Once they cycled off they never cycled back on. Our bedroom unit was 13K, it was not blowing cold enough air. The living room our 15K, was a dometic brisk, apparently these are all junk... per the wonderful mobile repair guy. He truly was a wealth of knowledge. He told me to contact dometic and tell them they were not keeping up and that they weren't coming back on if or when they ever did cycle off. Dometic never hesitated to drop ship two that same day. I think they felt sorry for me owning an Evergreen, I didn't care...I just needed working AC.

    What were your issues with the A/C's that you needed both replaced. We have problems with them staying on when using the automatic settings. I am going to put in another call to Dometic. Ours have the heat pumps which were actually only available on the LifeStyle trailers.

    Those windows should definitely be covered and you need them fixed asap as you will sustain water damage.

    Sorry for not answering you sooner. I forget to check for messages. I do enjoy reading irv2 forums.

    Sorry you are having so many issues. We have had only a couple problems. First was the right rear leveling jack leaked badly the second time it was used. A call to Lippert and I received a new jack which I installed myself. We had one of the knob open window mechanisms break and Bay Hill sent me a whole new window. I just removed the mechanism and replaced it myself also. This was just days before they closed the doors! Phew! That was a close one.
    I do not know if a remote is available for the ceiling fan. I am able to reach the chain. You can purchase an additional fan extension chain at Walmart and attach it so your chain is lower and then you will be able to reach it. I have a plastic two step collapsing step stool I carry. We need it to reach the A/C to clean and also the high cabinets. It was cheap and high quality and is rated to 300 lbs.
    Good that Route 66 decided to step up as you could have sued them since you were without factory warranty.
