    Hey Bob, when you put the wallpaper covering on the fascia/insert on your slide frame, did you cut out the existing fabric or did you remove it at all? Or did you just glue the wallpaper border over the existing fabric?

    My dear friend is finishing the bedroom windows and the pocket door top fascia cover now, so I was thinking I have some excellent commercial grade thick wallpaper I could cut and insert on the slide frame fascias if that's what you did. It would be a lot easier than trying to remove the fabric.....

    I found my kwikee notes. to open the steps to access the step motor. Apply 12+ to red wire. Apply 12- to green ground wire. to extend the steps touch the white wire to 12+. This will work if you have a electrical problem. If the steps are bound thru the gears, you will have to reach in and pull out the cotter pin and remove the pin in the linkage or take out the three 5/16 head screws in the gearbox and drop the gear down.

    if your step is up and covering the motor, you can open the step by putting twelve volts to the motor. You will have to unplug the rubber connector at the steps. It is a square connector about 1 in. by 1in. I am sorry, but I can,t remember the color wire to open the step. It seems like it was yellow and brown. You can pick up twelve volts from the red wire (on the coach end) and ground from the step ground wire.
    to get the correct colors call kwcikee at 1 541 942 3888. Make sure you keep well clear of the step path when you operate them. They will hurt you. Don't be afraid of them, just respect them. (kinda like your wife)

    ga traveler knows everything about our coaches. Talk to him, he's a fleetwood service mgr for many years. I sent him your problem. Hope this helps!

    I was looking at your coach, your windshield has some kind of shading or tint across the top foot or so, is that inside tint or did you do it?

    I bought the outside Prompt RV sunscreens for mine and installed a gutter over the windshield and it keeps the streaks down a can go check my posts to see pictures if you like.

    Thanks Bob!

    I went for the first visit to a campground last weekend. Had several issues pop up. My shore cord has a plug in in the bay to get power from the generator. So when I want to use the generator, I have to plug it in to the plug in. Well, the first thing that happened was the junction box the shore cord was wired to had a short because the cord was not properly secured from pulling out. We fixed that then the next thing was not enough power in the heat of the afternoon. Come to find out the plug was old and corrosion and lose. Put on a new plug. So far so good.

    I just wondered if yours was like that, do you have to plug yours in to an outlet there in the bay to get power from the generator? Somebody told me that was not factory.

    btw, your coach is identical in outside color as mine.
