  1. By any chance is it for the water pump? Does it have three wires?
  2. My 2000 Diplomat ISC also has two senders as described by BennieH, and I similarly had an intermittent gauge. If my memory serves me, the slip-on connector at the oil filter mount needed to be squeezed a little bit to make a better connection.
  3. If the WD40 doesn't work as easy as you want/need, feather the air brake to drop the pressure way down and you will be able to connect the hose. I learned this thru the air tools I use at home.
  4. I would suggest you get a stud finder to make sure. I installed a Splendide W/D Combo and blindly went ahead and cut a 4" hole thru the wall which was marked by Monaco as the right spot. It was for the superstructure but sadly was two inches off for the vent position in the W/D. Stupid me. I was able to satisfactorily adapt the mismatch with flexible vent hose, but know have to check it each year to make sure it is not gathering too much lint. I should have known vetter.
  5. I replaced my B/W with a color system from RVCAMS. They were super helpful, and led me ot the correct cable adapter. Straightforward job and not much work. I have no first-hand experience but a few on this forum have said to shy away from wireless systems in case you're tempted.
  6. I had this same problem on my 2000 Diplomat. It's a huge pain to fix, and helps if you are on the flexible, slim side. I did two things: Installed flexible coupler, the type with screw clamps, which extends the hose a little to relief the stress; and, changed the attachment point where the flexible hose is clamped to the slide to relief a little more stress. It's still right on the edge of whether it's going to hold, but I think I'mm OK. It's been a few years with no failure. GOOD LUCK!!!!
  7. I assume you have RVA Jacks in which case you may want to try opening up the t-handle on the hydraulic pump for that jack a little and try again. There may be a restriction in that valve.
  8. I don't have AquaHot but is it possible the hoses were reversed at the source?
  9. Hi Woody, Can't remember where to camp. It was several years ago. Unfortunately the best viewing is from the Canadian side. However, you can get several spectacular views from: Walk behind the Falls. cross over to Goat Island where you'll be right on top of the edge of the American Falls, Maid of the Mist boat. Also, view the Falls at night from a park with gorgeous flowers. You'll never forget it, even if you never get to Canada. Woody, and everyone, If it's a very cold winter and you are in the area, the Falls and the surrounding ice and frost are spectacular. The HUGE chunks of ice
  10. Bob Wightman, Bryant's RV has an excellent troubleshooting and repair manual for the ice maker, including how you can manually cycle thru the ice-making cycle without having to get it to freezing temperature. If it's broken and you need a new one, Lowe's sells it for a good price.
  11. I find occasional (about half a dozen) black flecks and styrofoam flecks falling from the ceiling ac vents in the bedroom only after the motorhome has been unused over the winter. The black flecks appear to be very thin plastic/mylar which could be a covering off insulation. The ac has not been running for months when these show up so I'm guessing they are from mice because I catch one or two a winter. I just get the mice and clean up the flecks.
  12. Ivan, I taped my dash door permanently shut with aluminum muffler tape and am 100% pleased with this solution. In both the hottest of summer and the coldest of winter. I have found I want only max heat in the winter and only max cooling in the summer. The only function I am missing is fresh air which I never used and still see no need. I still can control heat level and the fan speed with the dash control. I also taped misc leaks in the under-dash area such as around the sliding step cover, around wire openings thru the firewall, etc.
  13. I don't have AquaHeat but it sounds like a vacuum motor for the dash vent is not opening.
  14. I was able to lever them up by leaving the switch in the Retract position. There also is a T-handle, one for each jack, back at the reservoir, which you can open to relieve the pressure.
  15. Sounds electrical to me. Do the red/green/yellow lights give you any clue? Repeatedly activating all switches/buttons may clean their contacts. To trace where you have/don't have 12v you can get at the jack switches by removing the console panel with the switches (you also may have to remove the brake switch from the panel to get enough working space to access the jack switches). You have the same configuration as I do but I've never run into this problem. I've been in this console area to fix other problems. Sorry I cannot be more help.
