  1. 2001 Winnebago On A Spartan Chassis

    Can anyone tell me what the voltage should be at the thermal coupler on a norcold 4 door fridge
  2. 2001 Winnebago On A Spartan Chassis

    Taking our other rig out for a few days won't have time to work on the freedom till next week. Refrigerator not sure if works on 110 or Shore power as of yet. Have not had the chance to plug in. Generator is Onan quiet diesel 7.5 and purrs like a kitten. Need to have vet put on over refrigerator immediately. As rain and moisture is getting in. Not a good thing. That has been ordered but I will be covering tonight with plastic bag and cardboard because of possible rain and make sure everything is off. Inverter I'm going to try drawing a large load through it and see if it will kick the relays in place.

    It is an old one: Winnebago Ultimate Freedom with 10000 miles. Two tires and the front are two years old. The four on the rear are 6 years old. It does need the ball joints replaced and lower hydraulic hose off reservoir tank. No dry rot underneath airbags or hoses. Refrigerator tripped the thermal unit. I had reset it and seems to be running fine but now having issues with no flame. Will be looking into thermal coupler and igniters etc. Electric patio awning needs work probably broken spring not sure yet. All window awnings need the poles replaced as they have broke. Inverter works fine but will not pass AC through it or charge batteries. Probably will find more as time goes on.

    Well I did purchase the unit at what I consider a reasonable price for the amount of work I have to do. There is a little bit of minor discoloration in the bathroom ceiling which is next to the refrigerator putting a vent on it immediately is there anything I should do to prevent possible delamination none visible at this point?

    The refrigerator roof vent is missing water got down in the back and think that might have tripped the refrigerator thermal box. The hydraulic pump is okay the low pressure hose has cracks and was leaking.
  7. When pulling my slide in the aluminum cover gets between the RV and slide prevents from coming in how do I tighten the awning on a slight to Carefree Colorado

    Well I put a purchase offer on it. The hydraulic pump problem was a low pressure hose on the bottom cracked and leaking. I filled it up with oil and power steering and fan was working fine. The brakes did clear up a bit. The refrigerator had a box in the back that was tripped I bypassed it and frigerator started to work. I've been looking at this thing figure out all the problems so the guy could sell it to someone else right LOL. Let's see if my offer is good enough I won't go much higher.

    Well I go Vin and climbed under the RV. All four ball joint boots are cracked. Two of the leveling jacks are leaking. Hydraulic oil tank was empty power steering and fan were working but there seems to be a leak coming from the upper part of the pump drooping down. Refrigerator vent was broken and refrigerator wasn't working. The brakes were kind of grabbing but all of the airbags and hoses look free of dry rot the electric awning wasn't working and needs for rear tires. The price on the unit will have to come down substantially. Anybody have ideas on the hydro leak what it might be? To replace it the pump is 695 in labor 360 through Spartan.

    Thank you all for your input. I'm going to crawl under it tonight preferably before it start with about four flashlights a blanket and a sheet of cardboard. I am familiar with repairing coach systems but not familiar with the air suspension and air brakes. Will be going over everything looking for dry rot or cracking. Airbags tires hoses belts ball joint boots Etc then hopefully I can get on the roof it is a one-piece fiberglass roof. I will then attempt to go through the interior and check all of the components. I called the chassis Factory and Winnebago and ran the VIN numbers for any recalls or service notices. This guy is the original owner and head the odometer replaced in 03 at that time with 5000 miles on it. I will have to check all the systems and it looks like a lot of them. I can assume it does need tires and maybe some other minor things but not willing to get into a lot of work as my 2000 Damon V10 purrs like a kitten and I keep it that way. I do believe my biggest concern is the lack of mileage. Wish me luck.
  11. I am considering purchasing in a 01 Winnebago Ultimate Freedom on a Spartan Chassis with only 10,000 miles on it what should I be looking for and where for known issues?
