Jerry,
The main reason I wasn't able to pursue a lemon lawsuit was the fact that I was serving in Iraq and, later, Afghanistan during the first year we owned the rig. There just wasn't time to...

Make sure you check all the breakers on your inverter. I had an entire leg of 110V power out in our rig after the Navigator tried blowdrying her hair one day. It took me three days to finally figure...

So, yesterday, I pulled the entire handle assembly apart to check it out. The construction and assembly was substandard. Embarrassing, really. Pot metal materials and screws that, at 3/4", were too...

So, basically, you made a mechanical a linkage with a cotter pin? That's genius. Sure beats $280 for a new door handle assembly. I guess I know what I'm doing tomorrow.

Well, after rechecking the inverter, it appears I missed a breaker on my first pass. It doesn't look like the one next to it so I didn't mess with it. I reset them both (this time) and the circuit...

Glad to hear you got it in and were able to travel, Larry. I guess this means you'll be schlepping around three or four Sumo-sized dudes to help push the slide in next time. Got compartment space for...

Skip,
That's pretty much what I was thinking. And since we're camping and have access to 50A service, now would probably be the best time to tackle it. Wish I had my Fluke multimeter here!

You're right, Muddy, it is effective. It can also be extremely expensive...(voice of experience speaking here).
As you suggested, I checked the inverter. It has only one breaker on it. Reset it...

So, we went camping this week and, while we were out, the handle on the rig busted. We can no longer get in, if the door is latched. The door opens from the inside but not from outside. We had to...

2009 Bounder 35H - Slide motor seems weak.

Even though my engine is running, the driver's side slide on my rig moves in and out in super slo-mo. The smaller, bedroom slide on the passenger side runs in and out just fine. The motor on the...
