  1. Looking at the set up, it puts a lot of stress on the suspension system. Now, if it was like a fork lift and the tines supported the engine and got the wheels off the ground? You would still need a Tag & 15k to 20k tow hitch.
  2. I just looked at all the floor plans for non slide...didn't see one with the fridge in rear quarter. What length is yours? The reason for asking, the longer the run from gas bottle to fridge/stove, could affect the flow...you could also have a loss fitting, elbow. Is your gas line copper or tubing? To me the bow of a pull behind is at the hitch. 😀
  3. With that kind off heat (32+/- degrees), Is the engine running? Or just ignition ON. I would start at the Relay (New, but still could be bad), also wire from batteries to ignition to control board...without a drawing or schematic, I'm trying to visualize the system. I sent a PM to Rich.
  4. Back in 2001, I bought a 1997 Allegro from PPL in Houston, Texas for $21,700 and paid $200 for detailing, they did the PDI. First thing I did was take it to Sam's in League City, TX. for 6 new tires...I had the coach for 4 trouble free years and traded it in on a new 2006 Southwind, got $33,000. I personally, have never heard anything negative about PPL. That said, it does not mean, that others have not fallen thru the crack. As far as the Nocold is concerned, I'm surprised that your BIL did not verify it by visual insp. before he drove away! Your BIL reads as being a very knowledgeable mechanic & fabricator! Things happen!
  5. Do you have the same heat build up, with the ignition switch in ACC position? My 3 slides are HWH, so are my Air Level or Jacks! My first slide out coach was elect, a 2006 Soutwind and my first coach was a 1967 WB in 67'! I'm on #18 now.
  6. Does the ignition have a modulator? OK, it could be a bad relay or a chaffed control wire. Not solid contact or some corroded strands. Our coaches are a rolling Earthquake, a plug that is not seated 100% can make poor connection when the condition is right and then be fine when your stopped...5x in 2 years? Possible. Rich is far better at this, than I am!
  7. I may be way off base here...are you the original owner of this coach? If not, then it's possible that the previous or original owner had to replace a wire and did not use the proper gauge for the length of the run....#8 where it should have been a #6, the higher the # the easier it is to make a mistake!
  8. Welcome to the Forum! What type and age of RV is your fridg in? Yes, fan/fans are important to regulate flow and prevent hot spots. I remember having a battery operated small fan inside the fridge to keep air moving!
  9. Rich. I have "Trip Tek". When you turn on the back camera, the computer comes on and it has a disclaimer on the screen, then you have a check list of everything from disconnect coach to TPMS. Takes about 5 minutes to scroll thru everything, then the cameras come on...all 11 of them, including 4 radar's, that's the VORAD anti collision system! Then you can put it in Drive and go! Where the danger comes in, is while your driving an alarm goes off, 99% of the time it's been high temp on TPMS, 2 choices....pull over, scroll to TPMS and hit reset, that kills the alarm or do it while driving! Most would not pull over!!! I have found that the TPMS is pre set by the manufacturer, I can reset the P but not the T, the T is set at Ambient temp of 85 +/- 20! I guess the 25 year old nerds, forgot to enter road heat/cold! I have contacted Newmar and got the cost for upgrading system to 2019. The VORAD will be replaced with one that I have the choice of on/off...TPMS will be PMS. The new Trip Tek, is user friendly, you get an alarm it switches to that screen so you don't have to find it and Linda can take care of it or me if she is driving! Lot's of other things will also be taken care of on their dime! The 2012 Silver leaf system was replaced by a 2017 System by previous owner and we love it.
  10. Jim S. That would work for me! PM or Text me. Have you heard anything about your cruise?
  11. Brett, I will be COVID-19 tested, by the 4th, then 7 days quarantine and my first Cataract surgery the 11th..Quarantine till my next surgery the 25th! I only said...Dallas Co.
  12. Yea. Bill, take it to PM...I'll do the same! Joe, sorry about that. But, I will say (I'm on subject) I'm happy my wife want's to take care of inside off coach! 😁
