Jesse when you drop the 1x2” strips and then tighten them back up, are those sufficient to hold tv on the top?
I looked at my carpet protector today and it’s pretty much broke the full length. The slide does go flat when it’s out and I was feeling the gap. I think the gap is so evident because of the carpet plastic being broken. Will work to replace that now
Thanks for your help

Yes as long as they are at least thick enough that you canít bend them with your hands.
I believe I used the original screws in the original screw holes. I think there were 6 or seven.

I replace my carpet protector twice since new. The first time I used one continuous pice of 2 sided tape. The second time I used 6Ē sections. It worked best for me putting the protector in place then using tape.

Does anyone know if Winnebago motorhome doors use a magnetic sensor? If so where is it? Are the contacts and switches in the door for the lock only or do they serve the purpose of the magnetic sensor?

Tv replacement
 
Jesse I think I am going to be able to use old mounts, I moved the bottom mount up 1 inch I believe itís going to work. On the old tv it had 2 rca plug ins on the coach side is a noise suppressor that plugged into the rca jacks. On the old tv the plugs ,seemed to be built in. How did you deal with these?

Assuming you are talking about the entry door. I donít believe your coach entry door has a magnetic sensor in the door mechanism. It does have copper contacts in the hinge mid way up to pass current from the coach to the locking mechanism when shut. You can add a magnetic sensor. Many different types are available on line.

Hi Jesse
Yes the contacts are there and there is some type of magnetic sensor on the front passenger door (see photos). This was factory installed since I purchased it new. I would assume it is for the Kwikee step but I haven’t figured out how to get the door apart yet to confirm that.

I wasnít aware of that sensor. I have been scratching my head, and looking at wiring diagrams to try and figure out what itís for.
I wonder if it is to complete a circuit when the door is closed. May be tied into the passenger step cover.
The step cover may not close with the door open. It would make sense that Winnebago would incorporate this for safety.
You have me curious. I will have you an answer tomorrow.

What got you interested in the sensor?

I'm assuming it's for the Kwikee step since that's what Kwikee/Lippert calls out in their documents. Why they need a mag sensor in addition to the door contacts adds cost, and does not make sense for the floor panel either because both could be activated by the door contacts.

Using it as redundancy as we sometimes do in designs would make more sense if they were in parallel but in series doesn't make sense. Redundancy seems overkill for this purpose anyway.

I started looking for the mag sensor because I was lazy and hoped I wouldn't have to take the door apart. (if the switch was in the frame). I still need to do that but haven't looked for how to get it apart yet.

If this turns into too much trouble I might just pull the switch and swap it with the magnet and eliminate the door contact issues.

Window Fog
 
Has anybody had issues with their windows failing? The rear bath window in mine, behind the toilet, has fogged over pretty bad on the crank out portion only. I am wondering if that bottom piece is just removable and can be replaced?

My window hasnít fogged but I do have some info to help you.


Your window manufacture is SE-GI.
Your bath window part # is 341-05.67.15E2
There telephone number is 949-297-8530

As per Winnebago, the sensor in your picture is for you step operation. The bottom two copper pins in your door hinge are wired to the magnetic sensor.

Thanks, so did you get a wiring diagram? There could be something Iím missing. As I said above, why not just put the magnet in the door and the switch in the door frame? That eliminates the contacts and the wiring in the door? If I do that I donít need to tear apart the door?

I had to replace mine in the first year and they sent just the lower part. It was a little scary to replace, but it is in just by position of glass, you have to remove a support, then fold the window way up and then it comes out of track. Took a bit of persuasion but did come out and go back in and has been good since
