I did the same thing with the cushioning and quieted everything down. I also took the plastic off surrounding the windshield and sanded it down, stuffed insulation in the gap, nic and quiet now. I switched the rearview camera monitor and the radio for better control while driving. Have fun!



Hey jrupinsk, I love your idea of switching rear view monitor,with radio . Difficult? Do you have pics of install? Thanks

Thanks for the reply, I am going to work on the windshield surround as soon as I finish up the dash. The vinyl covered plywood That makes up the top of my dashboard wasnít secured to the metal subframe, so I am thinking that getting that cushioned and secured should help some too.

Thanks again for the tip regarding the windshield.

Inherited 1999 Pace Arrow 37
 
Hi all, try not to laugh too hard, but I inherited a 99 Pace arrow 37í and am having some issues. For starters, we drove it from NM to TX (to get it to my home) and we were never able to get the water to work. We filled the water tank before leaving but I am guessing there has to be a pump that needs to be turned on?? Couldnít find it. There is a lot of stuff underneath from my parents (chairs, tools etc) so wondering if something is hiding the switch. The water tank is in the very back. We emptied the tank when we got to TX and put it at storage, well it completely died. Starting charging the batteries and a beeping started inside. Could not make that stop.
And, one more dumb question, for the battery disconnect, which battery is the chassis and which the coach? As in the coach battery starts and runs the RV? Or do I have it backwards? Thank you very much.
PS I did pull the batteries and bought a new one today - the other is charging.

I have a 33 ' '98 Pace arrow and on mine there is a panel just above and to the left of my stove that lets me check batteries and tank levels. It also has the on/off switches for the water pump and water heater. Yours could be quite different though.

sometimes there are multiple switches. I have 3. One on my main control panel, one in the lav, and one in the bedroom by the sink.

About that beeping
 
There is a propane alarm (like a smoke detector). When I remove the battery cables to clean them the alarm will beep when I reconnect the power. My alarm is on the panel below the refrigerator area (yours may be different based on interior layout, should be above the propane tank location). Turn it off and back on. It should beep for several seconds then quit. May have a flashing LED to indicate it is on.
As others have said, should be a control panel somewhere with indicators for battery charge level, black and gray water and propane levels (don't trust these, usually not accurate) and on/off switches for the water pump and water heater. Usually a water pump switch near the bathroom sink also.
These were top of the line coaches when new. Bring us any and all of your questions and we will try to give you good and useful answers.

No running lights 92 Pae Arrow 30í
 
I know thereís a lot of knowledgeable and Iím not the only one so letís see how this goes.

My vehicle has been parked for about a year and Iíve noticed now that the running lights will not come on. I thought it was a ground issue so I Jumper street from exposed chassis part to the ground on the marker and it did not help. All of my running lights are out so Iím thinking itís a common issue like a ground or a fuse. However I have not had luck finding correct fuses. If you know where the fuses for the running lights I would very much appreciate your help

Don't know if you have the Ford or GM chassis. Do you have the Owner's Manual for the chassis? If so, it might have a fuse panel diagram. That might reference fuses for the (body) Builder's electricals including lighting & etc. (my Ford book does).

If you have the Ford chassis I can tell you which fuse positions are which (supposedly, coach builder might not have followed exactly), assuming not much changed between your '92 and my '98 ('99 chassis). If you have the GM chassis someone else on here may be able to help you.


Next question: do all the other lights work except running lights?

daveandcarol 05-23-2019 11:57 PM

One more quick thought. Front and rear running lights are [probably] grounded separately from each other (rather than run a ground wire back the length of the coach), so problem is more likely at the supply end. I'll check my wiring diagrams tomorrow to see if they have any clues.


Hopefully, since the coach has sat for a year, critters haven't nested somewhere and chewed any wires...

Mine is a '98 Pace arrow on a GM (Chevy 454) chassis. I believe on most of these, Ford chassis too, that the fuses for things are in the BCC box wherever that is located on your unit. Mine is under the hood directly in front of the drivers seat above the chassis battery. All of the fuses on mine are labeled pretty well on the BCC circuit board.

Thank you. I found the problem. Someone said that the light switch itself might be bad. While rooting around for that I noticed a four pin In Line connector that one side was not all the way in. I plugged it back in and everything works yes I have geez dude calm down dude
