Hello, with all the rear lights down at once and the power locks all non-functioning together it makes your task simpler... maybe! You have blown fuses for these systems and they will be marked as such, probably on the underside of the fusebox lid, either under or around the dash on the Drivers side or in the engine compartment. It's very common for moisture to get into the lights and other electronic parts over time and cause those fuses to short out. You'll need a strong flashlight and good vision to see a burnt fuse but a multi-meter would tell you for sure after you pull it out and test it. Happy Trails!

Have you removed screens and aerators to make sure they aren't the cause?

You probably won't be able to find one. But you will however be able to find manuals for the individual components on the motorhome IE: refrigerator, generator, water heater, furnace Etc.

KZ RVs | Answered on Nov 16, 2017

Is it fiberglass or aluminum? Is the buckling at the top corner of the slide opening? Is the unit under warranty still? If it is fiberglass is could be that water has permeated behind the fiberglass and is causing the side to delaminate. If it is aluminum it could be that the staples have pulled loose or in both cases it could be a structural problem. Now, if it is under warranty then you need to get it to an authorized warranty service center ASAP. If it is not, you still need to get it checked out and depending on what is found your insurance provider may authorize covered repairs.

Are you connection to the satellite input on the outside of the coach or the park cable input? If you are connecting to the park cable input it will not work since that wire is connected to a booster/splitter. Try running the wire through the window directly from the dish to the receiver. If that works then you need to install a dedicated satellite connection from the outside to the inside or purchase a flatwire to run through the window. If it does not work then the issue is in your satellite settings.

There should be a fresh water fill on the outside of the coach. If not then there is a valve that would need to be turned that will allow water to be put into the fresh water tank. If that is the case then it will be a bit more difficult to put bleach into the fresh water tank but not impossible. There will be a pump that draws fresh water out of the tank. You can disconnect the input and output lines. Connect the input line which comes from the fresh water tank to the output side of the pump. Then using a flexible line with a 1/2" pipe thread fitting, connect that to the input side of the pump. Put the loose end of the flexible line into a gallon of bleach and turn the pump on. It will draw the bleach out of the container and pump it into the fresh water holding tank. Now return the plumbing of the pump back to the original configuration. Using the valve system complete filling the fresh water tank with fresh water and allow to sit for a couple of days. Then open the low point drain on the fresh water tank and completely drain. When the coach is not in use make sure the tank is completely drained. There is also a fresh water treatment that you can purchase at your local rv parts department.

Do you have 12v when plugged in or on generator? If you do, then it's likely 1) a fuse or breaker for the converter, or 2) the converter is dead. Is your battery good? Try using taking the battery out and using to crank your car or truck. If that works, look at the fuse or breaker for your converter or your converter may be dead. If the batter doesn't work, do the opposite and put your car/truck battery in your RV and see if your 12v works -- if it doesn't, then check your converter fuse/breaker or it may be dead; if it does, then your battery is terminally (pun) dead.

loose connection or bad switch make sure batteries are charged

Crossroads 2012... | Answered on Nov 16, 2017

Does unit use water ONLY from pump? If so, make sure pump is actually running by feeling the pump. Is it emitting a small vibration? That is normal and probably means pump motor is running normally. If pump housing is excessively hot, pump may be locked up. If all appears normal and still no water, most likely culprit is broken impeller inside pump "Wet End" housing. Try disconnecting INLET hose to pump and check for presence of water. If none, pump is not your issue, your tank is dry. Also check pump OUTLET (pump off) for water. Disconnect hose, switch pump on momentarily. If pump discharges water here, you have a crimped or stopped up line or possibly a stopped up filter, if so equipped.

Hi Ced,

I would syphon out the water and tighten the awning. If the fabric has stretched too much from the sagging, you may need to add a stabilizer or replace it.

I found a great eHow article that will walk you through the steps for both scenarios: http://www.ehow.com/how_12125906_fix-sagging-awning.html

Best of Luck!

1) check and see if your car has a good earthing cable.
20 it could be a loose terminal or fuse.

You have the question we are all asking.
rv tank gauges never seem to be very accurate. The best you can do for your black water tank is to try to see where the sensors are mounted and try to spray water on them to loosen any gunk.
I have had 4 motor homes and never had very accurate tank indicators.
Your black tank can be checked by taking a flashlight with the water off and looking down the hole of the toilet. When it gets close to the lowest part,of the drain hole it is time to dump.

Assuming we are talking abouot the same switch: It disconnects the auxiliary battery(s) for storage. Nothing that runs on 12v should work. Best for temporary storage. Batteries should still be removed for long term dead storage.

Take it in to the service department where you purchased it. Sounds like you have picked up on of those stow away hitch hikers that hide out in the retractables, like those airliners have had happen. Just a little humor. Take it to the service department...just like the message says....sort of.
