  1. Is this Your 110 volt outlets? Check the GFI Button-- mostly at bathroom or kitchen locations. Or check the reset button/breaker on the Inverter. If you are on generator, check the breakers on the generator. Hope this helps. BTW ,Welcome to FMCA Forum . Good Travels ,Old Marine
  2. look in the closer for a plastic cover (approx. 10inch square) remove the cover ,you find fuses behind them hope thes helps
  3. Hi jleammont . I bought a Marshall Extend a Stay Propane Adaptor Tee from E-Bay .Turn the Propane off at the Tank ,Install the Adaptor before the Regulator ,then bolt the Regulator downstream from the Adaptor so that the Propane Appliances in the Coach are still working with the appropiate pressure .Then You can just hook up Your Webber Grill Whenever You want , just make sure You always put the access cap back on so no Dirt can get in .You may have to rig up up a braket to keep the regulator from vibrating . Hope this helps . Save Travels , Old Marine
  4. Our last coach was an Alfa Gold, and we added a 13.500 Roof Air in place of the front Fantastic Vent. Also had them takeout the Fantastic Fan Control on the end of the Kitchen Cabinet and install a remote Control w/thermostat. This way the DW could easily make changes. The Tech routed the wires in behind the kitchen cabinets to underneath the refrigerator to the 110V access panel. We have not had any Problems running all Units with the Generator .The work was done by Camping World in Mesa AZ .We where Happy with their work-- no holes to cut in roof or cabinets. Hope This helps . There is also the option to contact Alfateers in Fontana California, if you want more insight. Old Marine
  5. I would not know about a restriction, but would not recommend US 50, I 25 to Denver, 470 west to I70 to Grand Junction but at this time of the year? I don't think I would even try. Even in the Summer its a nerving ride, steep up and down grades for long periods, but definitely better then US 50. Hope this helps (don't ask how I know). Old Marine
  6. We have a 2013 CRV with GPS,and I did have the DEAD BATTERY problem after towing 6-7 Hours, I also use a Blue Ox Brake Box . So I really don't know who the battery killer was .But I installed a Charge Wire from the Coach to the Car and I bought a switch and a Fuse with attached wires and made my own fused disconnect for about $ 8.00 .Since then no more problems. I see the same switch on the NET for $65.00-$82.00 I got The 2 Parts at Auto Zone. Hope this helps. Old Marine
  7. I would also say to do those maintenance Items . We have a 2010 Phaeton, although I do my own work ,so I really can't tell what a shop would charge.But with 50K and 7-8year old Coach its a verry good Idea to change all belts. And if you are the original owner and this has not been done before, then you are really running on borrowed time. But ask the shop to give you the old belts to keep as a spare, just in case something would happen down the Road and parts where not available. You might also look into getting your cooling system flushed and new coolant installed. I have just done all my maintenance and our coach is 2-3Year newer . Hind sight is never a nice thing. I hope this helps , Old Marine
  8. If you are talking about the two Knife Switches ,they are suppose to be closed when using the Coach. When having the coach in storage for extended period ,open both switches.This will stop the batteries from being depleted from the Parasitic Loads (Control Modules). Hope this helps. old marine
  9. We were at the tunnel Camp Ground in 2010 & in 2013 , had no reservation either time ,and this was in August & July had no Problems getting in ,they have 3 Camps ,#1 is the most preferred ,there You have full hook up , and it will be hard to get in without Reservation .the 2 others not so much .They are very spacious Spots and also supplied firewood at no charge (and you want it if you want to be outside) .both times the Moscitos were terrible. Make sure to bring repellant ,its very costly in Canada. We dit not find a CG at Lake Louise,But don't miss it .Hope this helps Old Marine
  10. Hello DonnaKAY, Go to Ace Hardware store or Home Depot, bring the old one with you so you can match it, there are way to many variations, I had no problem getting the right one for our door. Good Luck, Old Marine
  11. Hi Montie, We where at Tunnel Campground in June 2013 .There are actually 3 campgrounds,one right after the other. Only the first one had electric & water, the others where without & had a big mosquito problem, but you had your own large spot.They have free firewood to keep them away. You better bring Repellent! Hope this helps. Old Marine
  12. Hi Manhold, Sounds like your burner nozzle on the Aqua Hot is plugged or the adjuster bolt for the igniter came loose. You can contact a dealer, or download in the WEB its not too hard to fix, but hard on your knees. Good luck. old Marine
  13. About 15 miles south of Albert Lee is Diamond Joe's casino, I stayed there this summer, but no hook ups. Hope this helps.
  14. borg8of9 Welcome. Only two things come to mind: Bad proportioning valve or a bad brake hose that is coming apart internally ,other then a smashed brakeline as Brett mentioned. Good luck. Let us know the final fix.
  15. We where in DC last year & stayed at Cherry Hills , verry nice with all amenities, is right close to the beltway & easy to get to anywhere in the City. We would definitely go again. old marine
