Check shifter to transmission linkage for broken or disconnected. There should be multiples.

SOURCE: How do I get a manual for a 1993 allegro bay motor home..i have leaks in bathroom.

Try going to the manufacturer web site. But why don't you just go up there and look for the source of trouble. Or just seal the entire surface and be done with it.

Bathrooms usually have some sort of venting so it could be a starting point to look for the vent and flashing up on top.

2008tiffin allegro bay FRED park brake failure

The parking brake is a spring actuated band that clamps around a disk located on the drive shaft immediately behind the transmission and is automatically activated when you shift into Park, which mean it should automatically deactivate when shifting out of Park. This band is held open by hydraulic pressure when the rig is shifted out of Park and into a drive gear. Most likely you have an issue with the hydraulic pressure, like the pressure is not being released because of clogged lines, or the spring actuated band may be broken. If you are able to get under the unit to get a visual inspection, you may be able to see or hear any issues. The best way to do this is to have the unit on a stand or at least elevated enough to have the rear wheels off the ground (if using automotive stand, please make sure the jack stands are rated to support the weight of your rig; failure could be catastrophic and deadly, and chock the front wheels well).

Eitherr way, you are not going to like this answer; Freightliner, which manufacturers the chassis, no longer makes parts for some of these systems so an older unit like yours so exactly parts needed may not be available. Freightliner is still making FRED units for new coaches but compatibility may be something you need to discuss with a Freightliner authorized repair shop. In upgrade may be in order but they would be able to give you the exact details. You might be in better luck than someone that has the opposite happen where the brakes were burning up because they were always engaged, even when driving.

Why does my webasto Heater turn on when my motor home is parked

Maybe because it's supposed to. From Webasto

Why an Air Heater?

Comfortable warmth in the driver's cabin during breaks and overnight stay. A cab that is cosy warm even before starting work, a clear view without ice and snow - and all that with easy installation and handling. Air heaters make your vehicles more comfortable, efficient and cost-effective, fit for the winter!

1989vintage 454 in RV will not disengage the choke release resulting in 2000rpm steady 'idle' milage 28000. RV has been in campground for 3yrs. Engine run up every 30 days.

Possibly could be a throttle position sensor, outside of that I would recommend replacing the choke cable, and maybe the choke itself.

1991 four winds wont start

Try putting the transmission gear selector in neutral and try starting it again park safety switches get corroded when they sit too long. Just moving the gearshift may fix it.

Just bought a new 2013 thor hurricane and the auto leveling jacks wont go down. The motor is running, the parking brake on, but the auto leveler wont turn on but all the buttons to the left are flashing...

Is it a Lippert (LCI) system? If so, it sounds like the system needs to be calibrated. You can go to and they have a support section where you can find your leveling system with instructions to re-calibrate.

Surge Guard 50amp - no shore power

Do you have good power that the outlet. I have seen many issues at RV parks of not having sustained power or one leg of the breaker going bad causing loss of power. If you do have good power coming into the surge protector but not out. Then go through the reset procedures for the surge protector. If it will not reset, then the surge protector has failed and will need to be replaced. If power is coming through then check the main breakers in the coach for possible failure. Breakers can trip but still look as if they are properly set. Turn them completely off then back on to reset.

Jacks will not retract

The jack system is wired through various safety apertures and all must be in the proper setting for the system to work. Many require the emergency parking brake to be set, the vehicle must be in park and I have even seen one system that the driver must be in their seat with their safety belt on before that jacks would retract. The last vehicle I repaired with this issue I found that on the dash the vehicle indicated that it was in park but the neutral switch located on the transmission had not properly locked into park. Have you visually inspected the jacks to verify their position. There are times that the jacks will retract but due to low fluid level the alarm remains activated showing that the jacks are down. With these systems, in most cases, the jacks retracting is basically a release valve being activated and springs pulling the jacks back up into the retracted position.
