Safety
Safety
Safety, comfort and ease of operation are key considerations during the design and manufacture of all Triple E
Motorhomes.
It is the responsibility of the owner or operator to read, understand, and follow all instructions in this manual, the
chassis manual and any appliance/equipment system manuals located in the information kit and from safety signs on
the Motorhome. Specific items, procedures or instructions are identified with the key words Important, Caution and
Warning emphasizing areas of special concern. These key words are defined as:
IMPORTANT
Caution
Warning
Important is used to highlight or emphasize a specific
procedure, information or result for a system or the
Motorhome.
Caution is used to highlight or emphasize a specific
procedure or information that if not followed can involve
your personal safety as well as cause Motorhome
damage.
Warning is used to highlight or emphasize a specific
procedure or information that if not followed can involve
your personal safety as well as cause Motorhome
damage.
The safety symbol
used in conjunction with the Caution and Warning symbols, identifies an area that involves
the personal safety of the operator, passengers or a bystander. Always read, understand and follow the instructions
and information in the safety sign or manual instruction. Do not take chances with safety. Most accidents can be
prevented.
In this section we have compiled a series of items relating to safety that everyone should follow. Although this compilation
is thorough, we realize that it does not cover all situations. Each person who operates or occupies the Motorhome or
any of its components, devices or subassemblies should be familiarized with this manual and the information kit. Each
operator or occupant has the responsibility of following all listed safety items covered in this and other manuals.
General Safety
●● The most important safety feature on this Motorhome is a safe and knowledgeable operator. It is the operator’s
responsibility to read, understand and follow all safety and operating instructions in the vehicle, chassis, appliance
and system manuals. Most accidents can be prevented.
●● An operator who has not read and understood all operating and safety instructions is not qualified to operate this
Motorhome.
●● An untrained or uninformed operator or occupant exposes themselves, passengers and other drivers/vehicles/
property to possible serious injury or death and property damage.
●● Do not modify the Motorhome in any way. Unauthorized modification may impair the function and/or safety and
could affect the life of the Motorhome .
●● All approved driver and passenger seats are equipped with seatbelts. When occupied while driving, each must be
locked in the forward facing direction. Each passenger must occupy only the approved seats and fasten seatbelts
when the Motorhome is moving. Do not allow any passengers in the Motorhome unless they have their seatbelt
attached while in an approved seat. When the Motorhome is moving, no one should be using the sleeping, cooking,
bathroom or living areas. Seats installed by the manufacturer with seatbelts are approved seats.
●● Always fasten the seatbelt low on the torso and keep it snug to transmit the force from the belt into the hip/pelvic
area of the body. Pregnant women should wear a lap/shoulder belt whenever possible. Wear the belt snug and low
throughout the pregnancy.
●● Establish a monthly fire extinguisher inspection program to keep the extinguisher in good condition and fully
charged. Inspect the extinguisher prior to each time the Motorhome is operated or occupied.

All models are equipped with an LP gas and combined
carbon monoxide/smoke alarm as standard safety
equipment.

IMPORTANT
Recurring alarm(s) indicate the slow accumulation
of LP gas, carbon monoxide, smoke, or low battery
levels. Have an authorized service center check the
system and identify the source. Correct the problem
before resuming use of the unit. Keep all alarms in
good working order.
For detailed information, refer to alarm manual(s)
provided in the information kit.
LP Gas Alarm
The LP gas monitor (1) is mounted on the lower
cabinets.
The LP gas monitor sounds whenever there is an unsafe amount of LP gas in the Motorhome.

Fire Prevention
Fires can be started in a variety of ways including but not limited to careless smoking, malfunction of appliances
or equipment, flammable material on hot surfaces, etc. Fires are best prevented rather than put out. Prevent but
anticipate what to do if they occur. Review the following sections with everyone on a regular basis.
Fire Safety Tips
1. Establish and maintain good housekeeping practices. Never allow combustible materials to accumulate.
Make sure you store flammable liquids in approved containers in a well-ventilated space.
2. Make sure you have charged fire extinguishers readily accessible.
3. Avoid using flammable products in the Motorhome.
4. Never smoke in bed or when relaxing on the couch.
5. Do not overload electrical outlets.
6. Do not leave cooking food unattended.
7. Keep children away from electrical outlets and LP gas controls.
8. Never use a naked flame to check for LP gas leaks. If there is a fire, get everyone out of the Motorhome. If possible,
use your fire extinguisher. If possible close all LP gas valves. Call the fire department and stay a safe distance away
from the Motorhome. Do not re-enter the Motorhome until the fire officials declare that it’s safe to do so.
Fire Extinguisher
The fire extinguisher is located in the coach entrance.
Operation
1. Stay a safe distance from the fire and near an exit.
The chemical from the fire extinguisher will shoot at
least 10 feet. Stay close to the floor to avoid heat and
fumes.
1
2. Pull the pin; grasp the fire extinguisher firmly, holding it
in an upright position.
3. Push the lever down. Aim at the base of the fire,
spraying the entire base area. DO NOT spray at the
smoke or flames.
4. After the fire is out, watch for “flashback”.
5. Discharge the fire extinguisher entirely and get it
recharged or replaced immediately. For detailed
information, refer to the fire extinguisher manual
provided in the information kit.
Function
1. Fire extinguishers are designed to put out a fire in
its initial stages. Once a fire is out of control and you
cannot get within 10 feet (3 m), it is probably too big to
fight with your extinguisher.
3. Check the pressure indicator on your fire extinguisher
periodically. If it loses pressure, the dry chemical
cannot be discharged effectively.
2. Do not discharge your fire extinguisher to test it. Once
it is discharged even for a few seconds it will lose
pressure and become useless.
If the pointer on the gauge (1) does not indicate in the
green, replace the extinguisher immediately. Record
the inspection date on the tag provided.

Vehicle Preparation
Before you even begin to consider taking an extended trip, get to know your Motorhome, its components, features,
appliances and limitations. Take some time to read and study this manual and understand the operation of all
components.
Preparation is the key to an enjoyable and successful trip. Your Motorhome really gives you the freedom to do what
you want, where you want, and when. The time you spend getting to know your Motorhome will go a long way in
making you totally satisfied with your purchase.
Keys
It is a good idea to keep a record of all key code numbers and keep them in a safe place - not in your Motorhome.
Key codes on the Unity/Sprinter models can only be obtained through your local authorized Sprinter dealer.
Vehicle Loading and Weights
The components of your vehicle are designed to provide satisfactory service if the Motorhome is not over-loaded in
excess of either the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) or the maximum front and rear gross axle weight ratings
(GAWR’s). These ratings are listed on the Canada and U.S. Department of Transport decal located on the driver door
post.
The (GVWR) Gross Vehicle Weight Rating is the maximum permissible weight of the fully loaded Motorhome.
The (UVW) Unloaded Vehicle Weight is the weight of this Motorhome as manufactured at the factory with full fuel,
engine oil and coolants.
The (CCC) (Canada) Cargo Carrying Capacity is the weight equal to GVWR minus UVW, full fresh (potable) water
weight (including water heater), full LP-Gas weight and SCWR.
The (OCCC) Occupant and Cargo Carrying Capacity is equal to the GVWR minus UVW and LP. In other words, OCCC
is how much weight in occupants, cargo, water and trailer tongue weight that can be added to the Motorhome without
exceeding the GVWR.
The (GVWR) Gross Combination Weight Rating means the maximum allowable loaded weight of this Motorhome and
any towed trailer or towed vehicle.
The (GAWR) Gross Axle Weight Rating is the value specified as the load carrying capacity of a single axle system, as
measured at the tire-ground interface.
To check that your Motorhome is properly loaded, drive the fully loaded vehicle to a scale and weigh as follows:
1. Drive only the front wheels onto the scale to obtain the front gross axle weight.
2. Next, place the entire vehicle (both axles) onto the scale to obtain the gross vehicle weight.
3. Drive forward till only the rear wheels are on the scale and obtain the rear gross axle weight.
4. To obtain corner weight for your Motorhome drive each tire individually onto the scale and record the weight.
Compare the gross vehicle weight with the GVWR on the sticker. If the gross vehicle weight exceeds the GVWR on
the sticker, check the front and rear gross axle weights against the front and rear GAWR’s on the sticker. If either axle
weight exceeds the GAWR for that axle, redistribute the load to ensure that loads on front and rear axles are within
the required limit.
Heavier items should be loaded as centrally and as low as possible. Lighter items may be stored in cabinets, closets
and drawers. Luggage or similar cargo inside your Motorhome should be secured to prevent it from causing damage
or injury.
1-16
Unity Motorhome
Vehicle Operation
Caution
Total vehicle load should NOT exceed the respective maximum GVWR/GAWR/GCWR of the chassis.
Towing
Towing a trailer can affect the handling, durability, performance and economy of your Motorhome. The factory installed
certified class 3 towing hitch is rated for:
A. 500 lb (227 kg) - maximum hitch or tongue weight
B. 5000 lb (2270 kg) - maximum trailer weight.
The combined weight of the Motorhome and any towed vehicle must not exceed the Gross Combined Weight Rating
(GCWR). Also, the combined weight of the Motorhome and any towed vehicle must not exceed the Motorhome’s
Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) or its rear Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR) as listed on the vehicle certification
label.
(GCWR) = 15,250 lb (6917 kg)
To be sure of the correct balance in weight, you should take your loaded Motorhome to a weighscale to determine
actual weight distribution. After you have done this once, you will have a better idea on how to load in the future.
Remember, your Motorhome will handle differently with a trailer in tow. Stopping distances will be longer. Make sure
your trailer is equipped and connected to your Motorhome with the proper brake system. When descending a steep or
long grade, reduce speed and shift to a lower gear to control speed. Avoid prolonged or frequent application of brakes
to prevent overheating and possible failure of the braking system. (See chassis manual for further information.)
Auxiliary Vehicle Towing
If you are planning to tow another vehicle or a trailer with your Motorhome, your dealer will provide you with the
necessary information and advice.
Warning
For safe towing and vehicle handling, maintain proper Motorhome and trailer weight distribution. The total weight of
the Motorhome and the towed vehicle or trailer must not exceed the GCVW rating as stated on the vehicle certification
label.

Pre-Trip Inspection
1. Ensure the Motorhome and all of its components, devices, systems and subsystems are serviced and ready for
travel.
2. Inspect wheel lugs for tightness. Examine tires for road damage and wear. Ensure that all tires are inflated to proper
pressure.
3. Check All Fluids:
●● Engine / Crankcase Oil
●● Power Steering Fluid
●● Radiator Recovery System
●● Reservoir Level
●● Battery Electrolyte Level
●● Windshield Washer Reservoir
●● Transmission Fluid
4. Check oil level in generator power plant (if installed). Refer to generator instruction and maintenance manual located
in the information kit for details on pre-use requirements.
5. Consult the chassis manual for a recommended list of pre-trip checks.
6. Verify that all lights are in working order.
7. Check the engine compartment for wildlife. Wildlife and pets like the warmth of the engine compartment and can
become entangled in the moving engine components.
8. Sanitize and fill the fresh water tank if required. Turn off the water pump, unless water is needed. The water pump
should also be turned off when leaving the unit for any length of time. (See “System Monitor” in “Electrical System”
section for details.)
9. Start the refrigerator a day ahead of time so it will be cold for your trip.
10.Fill the LP gas tank to a max of 80% capacity. Be careful not to overfill the LP gas tank. An overfilled LP gas tank will
cause the gas regulator to fail, and may result in problems with LP gas components. Turn off the LP gas valve control
located in the utility center. Make sure all LP gas controls are turned off (furnace, stove top, refrigerator). Check for LP
gas leaks regularly using soapy water.
Warning
All appliances must be turned off during refuelling of any Motorhome fuel tanks, propane or LP gas tanks. Do not
smoke when refuelling.
11.Check that sewer connections are properly stored and all external compartments and filler openings are closed and/
or locked.
12.Check the roof vent to ensure it closes and opens.
13.Be sure all doors are closed, latched, travel locks in place, and all loose objects secured including cabinet and
refrigerator contents.
14.Deodorize the waste holding tank. (See details in “Black Water - Waste Holding Tank” in “Water / Plumbing”
Section).
15.Check that all blocks and chocks are removed and/or stowed.
16.Check that there are no obstructions in the Motorhome pathway before moving. Be sure there is proper clearance
between adjacent and overhead objects to prevent contact.
17.Disconnect and stow the shoreline power cord. (See details in this section).
18.Lock exterior compartment doors.
19.Check that the fire extinguisher is in good condition and fully charged. (See details in Safety section).

a seatbelt. All pregnant riders should be in a seat equipped with a shoulder strap for maximum safety.
7. Small children should always be strapped into a carseat facing rearward.
8. Do not carry any passengers unless they are in a seat equipped with a seatbelt and the belt is fastened.
Maximum Occupancy
The belted seating positions in your Motorhome may be different than the stated sleeping capacity. In the US this is
referred to as the Occupant and Cargo Carrying Capacity (OCCC) or the Cargo Carrying Capacity (CCC) in Canada.
Triple E RV uses belted seating positions to determine the OCCC or CCC. You may use all the belted seating positions
available in your Motorhome provided you stay within the GVWR listed on your vehicle certification Label.
Warning
All occupants must be in seats equipped with lap or shoulder harness seatbelts and the seatbelt fastened when the
Motorhome is in motion. Small children should always be placed in a certified child restraint system and secured with
a seatbelt.
1-19
Vehicle Operation
Unity Motorhome
Seat / Shoulder Belts
Every occupant must be seated in an approved seat with the belt fastened whenever the Motorhome is in motion.
Accident statistics prove the importance of using seatbelts. Vehicle occupants not seated in an approved seat and
restrained with a seatbelt are likely to suffer more injuries of a more serious nature than those properly restrained.
Lap / Shoulder Belts
The driver and passenger seats are equipped with a
combination lap and shoulder belt (1) for maximum
restraint.
Lap Belts
The dinette is equipped with lap belts (2). Never allow
occupants to travel in a seat that is not equipped with a
lap or shoulder belt.

IMPORTANT
All seatbelts retractors are equipped with locks that engage when the belt extends too fast. Move the spade
end of the seatbelt slowly and steadily across your body when fastening to prevent the lock from engaging. If
the belt locks while extending, release the tension and allow it to retract fully. Then pull out again to fasten.
Pregnancy
Pregnant women should wear their lap belts low on their torso and should straps diagonally across their chest. Do not
position the strap against the neck. Wearing a seat or shoulder/lap belt properly will protect both the mother and the
unborn child.
Child Restraints
Child restraint systems are legally required in many jurisdictions in North America. Statistics prove that children not
secured under a certified and appropriate child restraint system experience more severe and more frequent injuries
than those properly restrained. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and any equivalent Canadian, rules
requiring anchors and tethers for child restraint systems mandated in passenger vehicles and SUVs do not apply
to your Motorhome. Accordingly, your Motorhome does not employ, and is not equipped with, any anchor or tether
restraint system for use in connection with child restraint seats. In evaluating and providing the safest conditions for
your young passengers, you must take into account the following considerations:
1. You must familiarize yourself with the laws and regulations of all states and provinces in which you will use the
Motorhome which govern transport of children and the use and/or anchoring of child restraint systems and seats in
the Motorhome.
2. Your Motorhome, in accordance with applicable law, is not manufactured with any anchor or tether system on any of
its forward facing seats.
3. Placing a child or child restraint system in a rear-facing or side- facing seat is not safe under any circumstances.
1-20
Unity Motorhome

4. Before allowing any child to travel in your Motorhome you may be required to purchase and use a child restraint that
is labeled as certified to comply with all applicable U.S. and Canadian’s laws, rules and regulations applicable to child
car seat, harness, anchor and/or tethering systems as the same apply to your Motorhome.
5. You must ensure that any child restraint system you employ will attach to structural elements of your Motorhome
conveniently and safely and that it will provide safety for a child every time it is used.
6. Your child restraint system must be suitable and adequate for your child’s age, weight, and height. You must check
your child’s restraint system instructions and/or labels to verify that it is suitable and adequate.
7. You must review carefully the labels and instructions supplied with your child restraint system, and you must correctly
and appropriately install your child restraint system in accordance with such labels and instructions and all applicable
laws and regulations.
8. If anchors or tethers are required for safe or legal use of your child restraint system, and for your child’s age, weight,
and height, you may have a difficult time safely transporting a child in the Motorhome, because no such devices are
installed on your Motorhome as manufactured.

Driving Characteristics
1. Controls
The Motorhome driver controls are automotive type. Steering and braking controls are power assisted to help
make driving as comfortable as possible. However, the Motorhome is much higher, wider, and heavier than a family
automobile.
2. General Handling
The Motorhome power-to-weight ratio is lower than that of the average automobile. Therefore it is essential to
compensate for slower acceleration when moving into traffic or when passing another vehicle. Allow extra room to
corner and to change lanes. When going underneath a bridge or similar overhang you must be aware of your maximum
height. (Measurement must include the air conditioner plus 6 inches. Height may vary depending on chassis, make,
suspension and air conditioner.)
3. High Wind Handling
High winds, or strong gusting winds may lead to unpredictable handling and control of the Motorhome.
When high winds, or strong gusting are encountered:
●● Slow way down so that you can maintain control of your Motorhome.
●● Find a safe place to get off the road and take shelter until the high wind subsides.
●● Park your Motorhome directly into the wind to minimize high wind buffeting.
4. Mountain Driving
When driving in hilly or mountainous terrain you should employ different driving techniques than those used when
driving under normal, flat conditions.
●● Climbing a Hill
The transmission is designed to down-shift automatically when required during a longer uphill climb. If you find that
the transmission shifts up and down frequently, it is a good idea to select a lower gear for the duration of the climb to
prevent this repeated shifting. This will prevent unnecessary wear and tear on your transmission.
●● Descending a Hill
It is a good idea to select a lower gear on your transmission when descending a hill to avoid prolonged application of
the brakes. Extended application of the brakes can cause unnecessary wear and tear and overheating. Under extreme
conditions this could cause you to lose control of the Motorhome.
IMPORTANT
A STANDARD RULE OF THUMB - Use the same lower gear position when descending a hill as you used while
climbing the hill.
Caution
Observe the engine temperature carefully, especially during long climbs. If you notice over-heating, pull off the road
and allow the engine to cool fully before continuing. Top up the radiator with coolant as instructed in the chassis manual
if necessary.
Driving Safety Tips
1. When backing the Motorhome, have a person stand to the rear on the driver’s side to guide you.
2. Before departing on the trip, check your routes for height restrictions. Remember, some tunnels prohibit Motorhomes
with LP gas systems.
1-23
Vehicle Operation
Unity Motorhome
3. While travelling, make sure all occupants correctly use their seatbelts.
4. While travelling, make sure all doors are closed and that cabinets, drawers, and loose objects are secure.
5. Instruct your family on what to do in case of fire, and hold fire drills periodically.
6. Maintain proper charge in the fire extinguisher.
7. LP Gas and smoke detectors should not be obstructed and should be in working order at all times.
8. Keep a well stocked first aid kit handy.
9. Check tires often while travelling. Make it a habit to check tire pressures before each trip, and each time you refuel.
10.If you have a cellular phone, carry it with you for emergencies. Do not make or answer calls, or text, while driving.
Travel Tips
As you travel with your Motorhome you will learn much from your own experiences. Share with other Motorhome
owners and learn from them. Read RV, outdoor and camping magazines for camping and travel tips. Here are a few
basic suggestions to make your travel and your camping easier and more enjoyable:
1. Make sure all compartment doors, refrigerator doors, and freezer doors are closed securely. Open these doors
carefully after travelling. The contents may have shifted while travelling and may fall when doors are opened.
2. Know the height and width of your Motorhome. Make adequate allowance for clearance.
3. While driving, use your mirrors to determine whether you are crowding the center line or the outside edge of the
highway. Remember, you are driving a vehicle that requires a driving style quite different from driving the family car.
4. When towing a vehicle or trailer make sure the combined weight of the towed vehicle or trailer does not exceed the
GCWR as stated on the vehicle certification label, located on the passenger door frame (US models only).
5. Some jurisdictions restrict vehicles with LP gas containers driving through highway tunnels. Check your route carefully
as you travel.
6. Always fill your water tank with clean, fresh, potable water. Do not use a new hose to fill the tank. It may leave a taste
of rubber or vinyl.
7. Conserve water especially when showering. The holding tanks have a limited capacity.
8. Dump sewage only at approved dumping sites.
9. Store all liquids in plastic containers with tight seals.
10.Watch the levels in your holding tanks. Dump regularly to avoid unnecessary build-up and potential odor. After
dumping, make sure to add water to the black water tank to prevent solids from settling in the tank. Without adequate
liquid in the black water tank, dumping can be difficult, if not impossible.
11.Be careful not to leave odor-causing food or materials in your Motorhome for extended periods of time. Make sure
wet clothing and towels are dry before storing.
12.Make sure your fire extinguisher is ready for use and that you know how to operate it.
Severe Weather Information
As a Motorhome traveller you will find the desire to explore new and out-of-the-way places irresistible. These recreational
areas can be vulnerable to unusual and severe weather conditions that could endanger your safety. A few suggestions
and safety precautions may help in case you ever find yourself in this situation.
IMPORTANT
All Motorhome occupants should be familiar with these safety precautions and should be alert to changes in
the weather.
1-24
Unity Motorhome
Vehicle Operation
1. Be alert! Thunderstorms and heavy rains can occur suddenly and unexpectedly. Listen frequently to weather reports
for the area in which you are camping or travelling so that you will not be caught unaware a sudden change in the
weather.
2. Remember these terms:
●● Weather Watch - Severe weather may develop in your area. Be prepared for an emergency.
●● Weather Warning - Severe weather is occurring or is imminent. Find a safe location immediately.
3. When camping near a stream or any body of water leave plenty of space and elevation between your Motorhome
and the stream.
4. Avoid canyons or dry washes during threatening weather. Prepare with an alternate exit. Move to higher ground as
soon as it starts raining.
5. Should you get caught in a flash flood, do not attempt to move your vehicle. Abandon it and return to it only after the
water has gone down. Never attempt to drive through any flooded area.
6. Heed the warnings and instructions of local authorities.
7. Have on hand enough survival supplies for several days. This should include food, water, first aid supplies and
necessary medications.
8. When you leave home, inform someone of your destination and your schedule. Notify the same people if and when
your plans change.
Emergencies While Driving
Your Motorhome is designed with features that allow the driver/occupants to resolve emergencies or failures when
travelling. Review this section to be familiar with the recommended procedure to resolve these conditions or situations.
Review this section with all new drivers and before each trip.
Hazard Warning Lights
The Motorhome is equipped with a hazard warning light system. Both the front and rear turn signals flash in unison
when the system is turn on. Refer to the chassis manual for details and location of this switch.
Hazard warning lights must be activated whenever the Motorhome is stopped on the side of a roadway or near
moving traffic. The lights alert other motorists to a potential hazard and to take extra care. The system is designed to
continue to flash when the switch is on even though the ignition key is turned off and or removed and you have left
the vehicle.
Flat Tire
If you have a flat tire while operating your Motorhome, slow gradually to prevent loss of control and pull to the shoulder
- side of the road. Stop on a level paved surface and engage the parking brake. Follow these steps unless conditions
dictate to the contrary:
1. Turn on the hazard warning lights.
2. Place chocks in front and back of tire which is on the opposite side and at the other end of the Motorhome from the
flat tire.
3. Remember, your Motorhome is not equipped with a spare tire, so immediately contact a qualified roadside repair
service.
4. If a roadside service is unavailable, inspect the flat tire to determine whether you can service or repair it.
5. If you can service or repair the flat tire, you must jack the vehicle.
6. Consult the chassis manual to locate the jack and to properly employ jacking lift points on the chassis.
7. If the ground is soft or unstable, carefully move the Motorhome to a safe jacking location.
8. Use a jacking board for stability on loose or soft ground.
9. Jack the Motorhome according to the jacking instructions in the chassis manual.
1-25
Vehicle Operation
Unity Motorhome
10.Never allow any portion of anyone’s body or extremities to be under the Motorhome at any time during jacking or
while jacked.
11.Before resuming travel with a new or repaired tire, ensure the lug nuts are tightened in the proper sequence and to
the specified torque as set out in the chassis manual. A torque wrench must be used to establish the specified torque.
Recheck and re-torque the wheel lug nuts after 25 and 100 miles (40 and 160 km) of operation after loosening or
removing any lug nuts.
When the Vehicle is Disabled
1. Emergency Starting
Do not push or tow the Motorhome in an attempt to start it. The powertrain is not designed to transmit torque to turn
the engine over for starting.
2. Jump Starting
See chassis owner’s manual for instructions.
3. Break Down
If the Motorhome breaks down, it should be towed to a qualified repair facility for repair by an experienced and approved
towing service. If the Motorhome breaks down on the roadway, pull off the road and stop. Engage the parking brake
and turn on the hazard warning lights. Place chocks by the wheels if the Motorhome is not on level or stable ground.
Call an approved towing service to the Motorhome. Be sure to tell the towing service what kind of vehicle it is
and its weight, length, width and height. The towing company will then dispatch a proper sized tow truck for your
Motorhome.
Warning
BATTERY BOOST WARNING - Always consult the chassis manual for proper procedures for jump starting a Motorhome
with a dead battery.
Overheating
If the engine overheats while driving:
1. Pull to the side of the road and stop immediately.
2. Shut engine off.
3. Check for proper coolant level in the recovery tank. The coolant level should be between the “full” and “add” marks
on the tank.
4. If the coolant level is low:
●● Check for leaks at hose connections, from the radiator or at the water pump. Make sure the belts are tight and
that the cooling fan is turning.
●● Add coolant to the recovery tank as soon as possible.
●● If coolant is being lost due to leaks; if the fan belt is broken or too loose; if the red warning light stays on - stop
the engine until the problem is corrected.
4. Once the temperature gauge returns to normal, resume driving, keeping an eye on the gauge. Do not resume driving
until the problem has been corrected and the temperature is normal.
Warning
Never remove the radiator cap when the engine is hot. Scalding fluid and pressurized steam can blow out and cause
severe burns.

Unity Motorhome
Prolonged Occupancy
Your Motorhomes is designed for recreational and short term occupancy. In case of extended occupancy there
are a few things to keep in mind regarding humidity and condensation. Excessive moisture released inside
the Motorhome can cause water stains and mildew on the upholstery, the wall materials and the woodwork.
Moisture condensing on the windows is a sure sign that the humidity inside your Motorhome is too high. To reduce
moisture inside your Motorhome we suggest the following:
1. Open windows and vents. This will allow fresh air to flow through and reduce the moisture content.
2. Reduce moisture released inside the Motorhome. Run the bathroom fan when using the bathroom and turn on the
range hood fan while cooking. This will remove unnecessary moisture from your Motorhome. Do not hang wet towels
and swimwear inside the Motorhome to dry.
Levelling the Motorhome
If you want to use any of the appliances when occupying the Motorhome, it will be necessary to level the Motorhome
frame. The refrigerator is particularly sensitive and must be close to level to function properly. A little time and planning
prior to levelling the Motorhome will insure maximum enjoyment of your Motorhome.
1. Inspect the area where the Motorhome will be parked. Select an area that has a firm prepared surface. Most
campgrounds provide this type of parking area for Motorhomes.
2. Select an area that is level or as near to level as possible.
3. Use a carpenter’s level on the floor to determine where to place blocks to level the frame.
4. Level from side to side first, then from front to back. Place planks in front the low side tire and drive the Motorhome
forward until the tires are resting on the planks.
Warning
Always exercise care and caution when parking and leveling your Motorhome. Make sure everyone, especially children,
is well clear of the Motorhome until levelling is complete and the Motorhome has been stabilized.
Stabilizers
Your Motorhome may be equipped with electric
stabilizers. The stabilizer control panel (1) is located
in the locker above the coach entrance doorway. See
detailed operating instructions in the information kit
before operating.
1
IMPORTANT
Always verify that stabilizers are completely retracted
before moving motor home.
NOTE: See “Maintenance” section for details on
manual operation of the stabilizers
Warning
Stabilizers should only be used to stabilize the Motorhome. Stabilizers must not be used for the purpose of levelling.

Refuelling
Warning
Make sure all LP gas tanks and appliances are shut off before refuelling.
Modern fuel systems may cause pressure to build up in the fuel tank during hot weather. Under certain conditions,
small amounts of fuel may spray from the fuel filler tube when the fuel cap is removed suddenly, causing a possible
hazard.
Do not smoke when refuelling. Keep flames, sparks and smoking material away from fuel or flammable fumes.
Removing The Fuel Cap
The fuel tank filler cap (1) is locate behind a flap adjacent
to the drivers door opening. Rotate the fuel cap slowly
and just enough for the pressure to be released i.e., until
any “hissing” sound stops. Then remove the cap.
Filling The Tank
Do not overfill the fuel tank. Fill only until the automatic
shut-off valve stops the flow of fuel. This allows for
expansion of the fuel and vapor space as the fuel warms
and expands in the fuel tank.
Fuel Tank Capacity
Refer to the chassis manual for details.
1
Fuel Types
Use ultra-low sulphur diesel fuel only. Refer to the chassis
manual for details.
NOTE: Auxiliary generators may draw their fuel from
the main engine gasoline tank. The fuel pick-up
tube is shorter than the engine pick-up tube. This
prevents the vehicle fuel tank from being completely
and accidentally drained by the generator.
IMPORTANT
Be sure to use the proper fuel. Errors in the fuel type
can be hazardous and can cause significant damage
requiring costly repairs.
Caution
Overfilling the fuel tank may cause damage to the fuel evaporative emission system.

Electrical System Operation
Electrical Supply
This Motorhome is equipped to operate with two electrical systems operating on separate voltages. An internal 12 volt
DC system (coach batteries) and an external 120 volt AC system (shore power.)
The 12 volt DC System draws its power from either the engine’s battery and charging system while driving or from the
coach batteries when parked. An isolator separates the two battery systems to prevent the engine battery from being
drawn down when parked and the coach system is in use.
The 12 volt DC System operates from the coach batteries,
from shore power through the converter or from the
generator through the convertor. The coach batteries
are automatically charged when the unit is connected to
shore power, when the engine is running, or when the
generator is running.
The 120 volt AC System operates either from the optional
120 volt AC generator installed in your Motorhome or
from the outside shore power connection.

Power Converter 120 Volt AC to 12 DC Volt
The power converter (10), located in a lower coach
cabinet facia, converts power from 120 volt AC to 12
volt DC for 12 volt features, and charges the coach
batteries.
The converter requires no servicing or adjustment and
contains a number of safety devices:
1. Fluctuations of temperature or power usage are
automatically monitored.
2. A sensor eliminates damage to the converter if the
terminals are “short circuited.”
IMPORTANT
If the coach batteries cables are connected
backwards, the two 30 amp fuses (11), located behind
the electrical panel will blow. If this occurs, connect
the battery correctly before replacing the fuses.
If your appliances fail to function, check these fuses
located behind the panel door.
The converter turns on when 120 volt AC power is
available. If 120 volt AC power is not available, the
normal 12 volt DC power requirements will run down
the coach batteries.

120 Volt AC System
When connected to 120 volt AC (shore power) such as that provided by most campgrounds or when running your 120
volt generator, the converter charges the coach battery which provides 12 volt power. All equipment normally powered
by the battery 12 volt DC power is then powered through the converter, preventing drain on the coach battery.
Some equipment, however, depends entirely on 120 volts AC or from the optional 120 volt generator.
This equipment includes:
1. Roof Air Conditioner
2. Refrigerator (when set to 120 volt AC)
3. Microwave Oven
4. All 120 Volt Electrical Outlets
5. TV(s)
120 Volt AC Circuit Breakers

The left side of the breaker panel contains six 120 volt AC
system circuit breaker switches (1). See the identification
label (2) for breaker function. The right side houses 12
volt DC fuses (3). See the fuse identification label (4) for
fuse function.
The breaker panel protects all 120 volt AC equipment
and components in the Motorhome from overload, from
a short in the wiring, or a short in the component itself.
The breaker cuts off the flow of electricity in the system
and prevents damage or fire.

Depending on the floor plan of your vehicle, you will
find a GFCI outlet in the bathroom, galley, and outside
receptacle.
Please note that on some models the GFCI circuit in the
bathroom will trip when a fault occurs at an exterior or
galley outlet. Both outlets are GFCI protected through
the bathroom circuit. If the exterior or galley outlet does
not work, check the bathroom GFCI receptacle.
Warning
The GFCI will not eliminate completely all electric shock. Small children or persons with a heart condition should be
extra cautious and could still be injured even though protected by a Ground Fault Interrupter.

Generator Safety
Electrical
Warning
Extreme care and caution should be exercised when handling the generator and its components. Carelessness can
be dangerous and even fatal.
Never touch any electrical leads, equipment or appliances when your hands are wet or when you are standing on wet
ground or in water.
Any repair of the generator should be done by an authorized service center only.
Never attempt to repair the generator yourself.
Never check generator oil level while the generator engine is running.
Asphyxiation
Warning
All internal combustion engines produce carbon monoxide (CO) gas fumes when running. This gas is poisonous,
colorless, odorless, tasteless and lighter than air.
These gases can readily be drawn into your Motorhome. Take the following precautions when running any engines.
1. Do not run the generator and a ventilator fan at the same time. This could draw gases into the Motorhome.
2. Do not open windows or ventilators on the side where the generator exhaust pipes are located.
3. Park so that winds will carry exhaust gases away from the Motorhome. Be aware of potential gas fumes from other
nearby vehicles.
4. Do not operate the generator if there is any obstruction such as vegetation, snow, buildings, etc., which could deflect
gas fumes under or into the Motorhome.
Automatic Power Transfer Switch
Automatic Switch Over
Switch to generator power from 120 volt AC shore power to generator, simply by starting the generator.
Built-in Delay
A 20 to 30 second (nominal) delay prevents starting generator under load. This delay allows necessary generator
warm-up before transfer of power.
This switch automatically transfers power when switching between 120 volt shore power and generated power.
This switch prevents damage to any circuitry should the shore power and generator be used simultaneously.
Caution
In normal usage it is never advisable to start the generator under load. To prolong the life of the air conditioner,
microwave, etc (and this power switch), follow this rule: Always verify that appliances are turned “OFF” before
starting or stopping the generator.

Electrical System Operation
Unity Motorhome
12 Volt DC system
The 12 volt DC power voltage system in your Motorhome consists of two separate but connected battery systems:
Chassis battery - (1) located under driver’s side cab floor (not shown).
Coach batteries - (2) located below a lift-up panel in the coach doorway.
IMPORTANT
A 15 Amp fuse, located in position #10 of the fuse
panel under the driver’s seat, protects the 12 volt DC
charging system. See the chassis operator’s manual
for further details.
1
Chassis Battery
The chassis battery operates the starter, the vehicle
accessories, and all the controls found on the vehicle
chassis instrument console, such as the auto heater
fans, exterior lights, the horn, speed control, windshield
wipers, etc.
It is recommended that the chassis battery cables be
disconnected when parking the Motorhome for an
extended period of time. See the chassis manual for
chassis battery quick disconnect location.
3
IMPORTANT
Disconnecting battery cables from the chassis battery
can clear the engine/transmission logic modules.
These modules will re-calibrate themselves once the
vehicle is reconnected and the engine started.
Coach Batteries 12 Volt DC
The coach batteries supply power to all the 12 volt DC
lights and equipment in the living area of your Motorhome,
including the roof vent, refrigerator (when operating in
12 volt DC mode,) 120 volt AC generator starter, water
pump, furnace fan, interior lights, holding tank, water
level gauges, etc.
Coach Battery Condition Meter
Depress the switch (2) and hold to show the battery
voltage level in the system monitor LED display (3)
Battery Maintenance
Automotive batteries are reservoirs of 12 volt DC
electrical energy. Whenever energy is removed from
the battery it has to be replaced in order for the battery
to continue functioning. This energy is restored by the
engine alternator whenever the engine is running or by
the RV converter.
1-56
2
Problems
Two conditions can destroy the function of a battery. One
is called sulphating in which a layer of sulphate crystals
collect on the lead plates inside the battery. This can
happen when a battery is not used for a long period of
time (30 days or more) especially during warm weather.
This situation requires replacement of the battery. The
second is freezing. A battery must be kept at almost full
charge to prevent the liquid electrolyte inside the battery
from freezing.
Unity Motorhome
Electrical System Operation
Prevention
1. Disconnect the battery cables during long periods of storage.
2. Hook up a battery charger at least once a month during long periods of storage, or connect the 120 volt AC shore
line to a suitable power source. When using shore power to charge the coach batteries, the battery disconnect switch
must be on.
Long Term Storage
If you do not intend to use your Motorhome for a longer period of time it might be a good idea to remove the batteries
from the Motorhome and store them in a cool dry location on a wood or rubber pad. DO NOT store batteries on a moist
concrete floor.
Additional Maintenance Suggestions
1. Check the external condition of the battery monthly. Look for cracks in the cover and case.
2. Make sure batteries are always securely fastened down.
3. Make sure battery clamps are tight and free of corrosion.
Warning
Do not allow battery electrolyte to contact skin, eyes, fabrics, or painted surfaces. The electrolyte is a sulfuric acid
solution which could cause serious personal injury or property damage. Wear eye protection when working.
4. Keep the battery and terminals clean. Accumulations of acid film and dirt may permit current to flow between the
terminals and discharge the battery.
5. To clean the battery, wash it with a diluted solution of baking soda and water to neutralize any acid present, then flush
with clean water. Foaming around terminals or on top of the battery is normal acid neutralization.
IMPORTANT
Make sure you don’t allow any baking soda solution to get into the battery. This can neutralize the battery
acid.
6. Dry the cables and terminals before reinstalling them, and don’t use grease on the bare metal inside the cable
terminals to prevent corrosion. Grease is an insulator. Electricity will not flow through it. A plastic ignition spray will
protect the terminals after you have cleaned and reinstalled them.
7. Whenever batteries are removed and replaced make sure the positive and negative cables are attached to the
correct terminals. (Positive to positive and negative to negative.) The same is true when using a “booster battery” or
a charger. If you use a “fast charger,” disconnect the cables from your battery. Do not attempt to recharge a frozen
battery.
IMPORTANT
Never try to start the engine with the aid of a Battery Quick Charge unit.
8. If you do not have maintenance-free batteries, check the battery fluid level and fill with distilled water if necessary.
Do not overfill.
9. Have the specific gravity of the battery fluid checked when you have your Motorhome serviced.
Warning
Remove rings, metal watchbands, and other metal jewelry before working around a battery. Use caution when using
metal tools. If the tool contacts the battery terminals or metal connected to them, a short circuit could occur.

Do’s and Don‘ts - Holding Tanks
DO keep your holding tank clean using any cleaner
approved for recreational vehicle sanitation systems.
DO add a special deodorizer or chemical additive
approved for recreational vehicle systems to sanitize
and improve the tank action.
DO keep your tank both dump valves closed, permitting
the tanks to fill before emptying.
DO keep both tank dump valves closed and the drain
cap tightly in place when travelling to permit use of the
system when on the road.
DO use soft, single-ply, non-dyed, biodegradable toilet
tissue.
DO open the shower room vent to keep the air fresh.
DON’T put facial tissues, paper, permanent (automotive)
antifreeze, sanitary napkins, or household toilet cleansers
in your holding tank.
DON’T put anything solid in your holding tank which can
scratch or damage its plastic components.
Using On-Site Sewer Hook-Ups
When staying at a campsite for any period of time where
sewer hook-ups are available, the sewer hose may be
attached and left in place for the duration of the stay.
However, the dump valves should be left closed. They
should be opened only when the tanks are full or when
you are ready to leave the campsite. This will keep solid
wastes in suspension allowing them to drain with the
liquids when the valves are opened. If the valves are left
open, the liquid wastes will drain, leaving the solids to
collect on the floor of the black water holding tank.
Should this happen, close the valves, fill the tank with
water and drive a few miles. A 1/4 cup of dish detergent
added to the tank will help to clean it. The motion of the
vehicle and the water will dislodge the wastes and allow
the tank to be drained in the normal manner.

Liquid Propane Gas System
Unity Motorhome
Liquid Propane Gas System
LP (Liquified Petroleum) gas is a colorless gas compressed into liquid form for easy transportation and storage.
It is the energy source for your range, oven, furnace, water heater, and an alternate energy source for your refrigerator.
LP gas is an excellent fuel source and both safe and economical when used properly.
Caution
These instructions are provided as a general guideline only and may not be complete. To ensure proper service and
safety, always take your Motorhome to an authorized Leisure Travel Vans Dealer service center.
LP Valve Gas Control (Utility Center)
The switch (1) opens and closes the LP gas valve. If
there is no 12 volt DC power available in the Motorhome,
the LP gas valve will automatically close.
Safe Use Of LP Gas
The LP gas system is designed and built to adhere
to federal government and industry regulation
requirements.
1
Many safety devices and backup systems have been
installed in your Motorhome to improve safety and
reliability. These devices and systems include: tank
overflow valves, LP gas detector, and carbon monoxide
(CO) detectors. LP gas also contains an odor additive so
that it can be more easily detected.
Observe the following precautions for the safe use of LP gas.
1. Familiarize yourself with the odor of LP gas. If you suspect a leak, turn off the LP gas supply immediately and
determine the source of the leak with the help of qualified service personnel.
2. Do not tamper with any part of the LP gas system, piping or regulator. Service and maintenance should be performed
only by qualified personnel.
3. Do not use natural gas in an LP gas system.
4. Check the entire system for leaks every time the tank is filled. Take time to regularly inspect the system for leaks.
5. Turn off the LP gas supply valve when the LP gas system is not used.
6. The LP gas tank should never be filled above the 80% level. LP gas requires room to expand within the tank.
7. Make sure all appliance vents are open and free of obstruction when using the LP gas system.
8. When drilling holes in walls or attaching objects, be careful not to damage gas lines or electrical wiring.
Selecting Fuel Types
Butane burns at a much higher temperature than propane but will not change from a liquid to a gas at temperatures
below 32 °F - 0 °C. Propane, on the other hand, burns at a lower temperature and will continue to convert from a liquid
to a gas at temperatures as low as -40 °F or -40 °C.
LP gas dealers will normally handle only the type of gas commonly used and suited to the climate in their area. If you
travel from a warmer part of the country to a colder area you may want to verify that you have the right type of LP
gas.
1-72
Unity Motorhome
Liquid Propane Gas System
How LP Gas Works
There are two types of LP (Liquified Petroleum) gas - propane and butane. Both are compressed into a liquid for easier
transportation and storage. Common names used are tank gas, bottle gas, or simply LP.
In the tank, LP gas is in the form of a liquid under very high pressure. As it is released, it changes to a vapor or gas
and expands to a much greater volume.
Caution should be exercised when temperatures fall below -40 °C (-40 degrees °F). You could be without propane at
these lower temperatures.
LP Gas Tank System
The LP gas storage tank is mounted underneath the Motorhome attached to the vehicle floor. It is accessible only
from outside the vehicle. The tank valve is located near the top center of the tank next to the regulator. Before opening
the supply valve, make sure all controls for the various appliances are in the “OFF” position. This is to prevent any LP
gas from leaking into the Motorhome. The supply valve is operated by the LP gas switch on the monitor panel. The
valve is held open using 12 volt DC power. If the battery is dead or the battery disconnect is switched off the valve will
automatically close. NOTE: The LP gas storage tank is also equipped with a manually operated shut-off valve.
See the maintenance section of this manual for details.
Refilling the LP Gas Tank
To fill the LP gas tank:
1. Shut off the LP gas control valve on the utility center
panel via the rocker switch (1) when filling the tank
and during travel. Always refill an empty LP gas tank
as soon as possible.
3
2
1
2. Connect the LP gas supply to fill connector (2).
3. Do not overfill your LP gas tank. Stop filling when
liquid appears at the overflow valve (3) (often called
a 10% valve) which contacts the liquid level at 80% of
container capacity allowing 20% for expansion.
4. Check after each filling by opening the overflow valve
and bleed gas in well-ventilated area until white liquid
stops. Overfilling may cause damage to the regulator
and cause malfunction of LP gas appliances.
IMPORTANT
The LP gas tank has an automatic 80% stop-fill
device to prevent over filling of the tank. To ensure
against over filling, it may be advisable to have the
tank filled only by an authorized filling station.
The tank is permanently mounted to the Motorhome.
Therefore the Motorhome must be taken to a fueling
station to be filled. When the liquid LP gas appears at
the overflow valve (3) the tank is full.
LP gas stations are found in all parts of the country.
Check the yellow pages in your telephone book if you
have trouble finding a station. Look under “Gas - Liquified
Petroleum - Bottled and Bulk” or “Propane.”
1-73
Liquid Propane Gas System
Unity Motorhome
Warning
Do not smoke when refuelling. Keep flames, sparks and smoking material away from fuel or flammable fumes.
Warning
●● Never overfill the LP gas tank. Make sure your Motorhome is level when filling the tank.
●● Make sure all pilot lights are “OFF” before refueling any of the gas tanks on your Motorhome.
●● Do not smoke or have any open flame in the area where refueling is taking place.
●● When testing for leaks in the LP gas system use a soap and water solution. Never use an open flame to test for
leaks.
●● Never fill the LP gas tank when either the engine or the generator is running.
●● Keep all protective covers and caps in place.
Warning
Remind the service attendant to use the 80% overflow valve when refueling. Space must be left in the tank for
vaporization and expansion.
Never carry LP or any other flammable liquid containers inside the living or driving areas of your Motorhome. Gases
may inadvertently be discharged into the confined space which could result in fire or explosion.
After the LP gas tank has been filled
1. Check all container and line connections periodically to be sure they are tight. When testing for leaks, use soapy
water (never a match). LP gas has a distinct garlic odor.
2. If gasoline or LP gas fumes are noticed at any time, the cause should be determined and corrected without delay.
3. Before opening the control valve via the rocker switch on the monitor panel, check that controls for all gas appliances
are in the “OFF” position. If this is not done, LP gas could accumulate inside the Motorhome creating a fire or
explosion hazard.
4. LP gas is potentially lethal if inhaled.
Air in the LP Gas Tank
If your LP gas appliances burn poorly or do not stay lit even though you are sure you have plenty of fuel, you may have
air trapped in the LP gas tank. The air will eventually escape along with the LP gas but it may be necessary to you have
your LP gas tank purged of air by ypur LP gas dealer.
Travelling with LP Gas
In some jurisdictions it is illegal to transport LP gas on certain roads or through tunnels. Check state or provincial
regulations to make sure your trip will not be halted or impeded unexpectedly as a result.
1-74
Unity Motorhome
Liquid Propane Gas System
LP Gas Tank Regulator
The LP gas tank regulator has a plastic cover to protect it from the weather. This should never be removed except by
qualified service personnel.
The pressure regulator has a vent hole on the underneath side. Make sure this vent hole is open and not obstructed
in any way.
During freezing weather an LP gas regulator may freeze. This may result from a small amount of moisture in the fuel,
even though most gas dealers take precautions to prevent his from happening. To help avoid freezing, keep the control
valve closed when not in use, even when the LP gas tank is empty. This helps prevent condensation from forming.
Hold a light bulb near the regulator to thaw it.
If moisture in the LP gas tank is a recurring problem, you may ask your LP gas dealer to inject a small amount of dry
methyl alcohol into the tank to absorb the moisture.
LP gas vaporizes quickly and easily at warmer temperatures. Under cold conditions this process slows down
dramatically. When large amounts of fuel are required when using the furnace, for example, the fuel may not vaporize
rapidly enough to keep all the appliances going at a high level. In this case you may have to reduce the consumption
of fuel by lowering the temperature setting on the furnace, reducing the consumption of hot water, turning down the
temperature setting on your refrigerator or switching from LP gas to electric power where possible.
The LP gas regulator pressure is preset. Do not attempt to adjust it. Adjustment should only be done by an authorized
service outlet. The regulator must not be exposed to the elements.
If the LP gas regulator fails the LP gas tank may be overfilled, or there may be impurities in the propane. Regulator
failure could cause LP gas components to malfunction.
Warning
Do not use an open flame or a heat lamp to thaw out regulator.
LP Gas Leaks
Notice the label placed near the range area. (Do not remove this label.) If you ever smell LP gas in the vehicle or the
detector alarm sounds, follow the instructions carefully.
Road vibration can loosen propane fittings. It is important to check the propane system for leaks at least every 5,000
miles and whenever the tank is filled. The entire propane system should also be checked annually by a qualified
propane service representative, irrespective of miles driven.
1. Read, understand, and follow safety labels, signs and directions in the Motorhome.
Warning
IF YOU SMELL GAS
1. Extinguish any open flame, pilot lights and all smoking material.
2. Do not touch electrical switches.
3. Shut off the LP gas tank valve.
4. Open doors, windows and roof vents after making sure the power vent is switched off.
5. Leave the area until the odor is gone.
6. Have the system checked for leaks and make all necessary corrections and repairs.
1-75
Liquid Propane Gas System
Unity Motorhome
2. Use soapy water to check for leaks and watch for bubbles. Do not use an open flame.
3. Correct or repair leak(s) before using appliances or vehicle again.
Warning
Do not bring or store LP gas containers, gasoline, or other flammable liquids inside the vehicle because a fire or
explosion may result.
Do not use materials that contain AMMONIA or CHLORINE to check for leakage.
Avoiding Asphyxiation
1. Do not use portable fuel-burning equipment, such as wood and charcoal grills, heater or stoves in the Motorhome.
The use of this equipment can generate deadly carbon monoxide gas or cause fires.
2. Provide proper ventilation when using the gas range to prevent asphyxiation. Do not use the range to heat the vehicle.
Long term use of these appliances for space heating increases the chance of asphyxiation. Before using the range:
●● Open overhead vent
●● Open window
3. Avoid breathing the exhaust fumes from a gas or diesel engine and LP gas burner. Such exhaust fumes may be
generated from operating the Motorhome or generator engine or stove, oven, refrigerator, furnace or water heater.
Position the Motorhome so the wind blows exhaust fumes away. Provide ventilation to the inside of the Motorhome
for adequate air exchange when appliances or furnaces are being used to prevent a build up of carbon monoxide. Be
sure all alarms are in proper working condition.
4. Do not run Motorhome or generator engine in a confined area such as a garage unless you are just moving it out of
such conined area.
5. Use vent or air conditioning fan to force fresh air into the interior when vehicle is in an open area with the engine
running for more than just a short time.
6. Maintain engine and generator exhaust system components in top condition to prevent fumes from entering the
Motorhome. Check when changing oil, when exhaust sound changes or when the underbody of the Motorhome
comes in contact with an object or is damaged.
7. Close rear windows when driving to prevent drawing exhaust fumes into vehicle.
When the Motorhome is new, some of the appliances will burn off paint or residue which has accumulated during
production. You may also note some odors from cleaners which will dissipate with ventilation.

Exterior Care and Maintenance
Roof
The roof is made of a bowed aluminium frame and constructed in a laminated ‘sandwich’ method. It is strong enough
to support the weight of an average adult should it become necessary to repair the roof or any of the roof mounted
components. It is not recommended to carry large heavy objects on the roof. The additional strain of the weight along
with the movement of the vehicle could cause damage to the roof. Check the roof regularly, especially the sealant
around vents, air conditioners, body-to-roof seams, etc., for possible leaks. Any suspected leaks should be repaired
immediately. Any leakage could result in damage to the interior of the Motorhome.
Underbody
Mud and dirt along with corrosive materials used to control dust or ice on the roads can accumulate underneath your
Motorhome and cause premature deterioration and rusting. In addition, any build up will add unnecessary weight to
the Motorhome. It is recommended that the undercarriage and the entire underbody be rinsed and flushed every time
the Motorhome is washed.
Washing, Waxing and Polishing
Damaging salts, calcium chloride, road tar, tree sap, insects and other foreign material have a way of accumulating on
the body of your motorhome. To reduce the harmful effects of these agents it is recommended that the motorhome be
washed frequently and thoroughly using a mild soap and warm water. Do not wash the exterior in direct sunlight and
never use hot water. Pressure washers are not a good idea as they can loosen decals and sealants. Waxing your RV
is strongly recommended to counter the effect of UV exposure on the exterior fiberglass parts.
Carefully inspect all caulking around windows, doors, and vents as well as all other joints. Re-caulk if necessary
using the correct caulking material from your Leisure Travel Vans dealer. If you notice that water failing to bead on the
surface of your Motorhome it is probably time to polish and wax it. This will not only improve the appearance of your
Motorhome, but will protect the painted surfaces from oxidation and corrosion and make it easier to wash.
Caution
These instructions are provided as a general guideline only and may not be complete. To ensure proper service and
safety, always take your Motorhome to an authorized Leisure Travel Vans Dealer service center.
Stripes and Decals
A few hints and precautions on care and maintenance of stripes and decals on your Motorhome.
●● Wash with plain soap and warm water. Rinse thoroughly.
●● Never wash with high-pressure washer at close range. The force of the water can lift the edges of decals.
●● Do not use solvents. They can smear the colors and damage the adhesive.
●● Never use lacquer thinner or paint on decals.
●● Avoid splashing gasoline or diesel fuel on decals and stripes. Rinse immediately if it happens.
Exterior Lighting
Before each trip, inspect all clearance lights, identification lights, marker lights, stop lights, turn signal lights and backup
lights. Replace burned out bulbs immediately. Keep all light lenses clean with soap and water.

Unity Motorhome
Interior Care
Accumulations of dirt and dust not only detract from the appearance of the interior of your Motorhome but will shorten
the life of the carpets and fabrics. Weekly cleaning and vacuuming is recommended.
Carpets
See manufacturer’s carpet care guide on how to clean soil, dirt and stains from the carpet.
Upholstery
Care should be taken when cleaning upholstery materials in your Motorhome. Do not use just any cleaner or spot
remover. Regular vacuuming and wiping with clear water will take care of most stains. Any major cleaning problems
should be undertaken by professional cleaners.
IMPORTANT
Direct sunlight will cause fading of upholstery and fabrics. To minimize the effect, close drapes, blinds and
shades whenever possible.
Spots and Stains
Most spots and stains can be removed by using clear warm water. To keep the stain from spreading, start from the
outside of the stain and work toward the center.
Stains such as lipstick, grease, ink or mustard are very hard to remove and will probably require some professional
advice or help.
Vinyl Fabrics
Vinyl should be cleaned with a soft, damp cloth using a mild detergent. Never use solvents of any kind on vinyl
surfaces.
Vinyl Manufacturer’s Recommendations: To clean most common household stains use warm, soapy water and a clear
water rinse. For more stubborn stains, Fantastik™ or Mr. Clean™ diluted 3:1 with water are recommended.
Draperies, Curtains and Bedspreads
These are made from a variety of fabrics and will require the help of professional cleaners. It should be noted that most
materials will probably shrink by about five percent even when cleaned professionally.
Cabinetry
Only the finest wood products have been used in the construction of your Motorhome. To clean, use a soft cloth and a
high quality wood finish cleaning product available from your RV center.
The beauty of the wood is in the natural variations in grain and density causing some differences in color and
shading.
Walls
As a rule, walls can be cleaned easily using warm water and a mild soap. For easier cleaning of accumulated grime,
a small quantity of rubbing alcohol may be added to the water. Never use solvents or abrasives.
Tables and Countertops
The plastic laminate on work surfaces will resist solvents, stains and abrasions. A coat of furniture wax will help
preserve the beauty of laminates and make cleaning easier.
Sinks
The sinks can be cleaned with warm water and soap. Wipe dry to avoid streaks. For stubborn stains, a mild abrasive
may be necessary. Always work in the direction of the polish lines.
1-78
Unity Motorhome
Motorhome Maintenance
Refrigerator
The cabinet interior should be cleaned regularly. Remove shelves and wash the lining with lukewarm water to which
a mild soap may be added. Dry thoroughly, especially around door frame and door gasket. Warm water only should
be used to wash the cooling evaporator, ice trays, and shelves. Never use strong chemicals or abrasive cleaning
materials on any part of the cabinet. See the refrigerator manual in the information kit.
Caution
Use of water-based and detergent-based solvent cleaners may cause excessive shrinking of fabrics. Water stains may
become permanent and unable to be removed with solvent cleaning agents.
Stove Top - General
Regular cleaning with a warm detergent solution and soft cloth will keep your stove top looking bright and new.
This should be done as soon as stove top cools.
Top Burners
Stove top burners (caps and grates) may be cleaned with a detergent solution. If any burner port should become
clogged, clean with a toothpick. Never use pins or other metal objects to clean the ports, as they may enlarged the
ports.
If a cap or grate is washed in a sink, dry it immediately by shaking off all excess water, reinstalling on the stove top and
lighting the burner until all water has evaporated.
Microwave/Convention Oven
Keep the door and inside of your microwave/convection oven clean. No grease, soil or spatter should be allowed to
build up. A build up of soil will absorb microwave energy just the same as the food you are cooking and may increase
the cooking time.
●● When food spatters or spilled liquids adhere to walls, wipe with a damp cloth. Mild detergents may be used if the
oven gets very dirty. The use of harsh detergents or abrasives is not recommended.
●● The outside oven surface should be cleaned with soap and water, rinsed and dried with a soft cloth. To prevent
damage to the operating parts inside the oven, water should not be allowed to seep into the ventilation openings.

Bathroom - General
As a general rule, use warm water and mild soap to clean walls and surfaces in your bathroom. On mirrors a good
quality glass cleaner may be used. Harsh cleaners, detergents, or abrasives should never be used.
Toilet
For instructions on the care of the toilet, refer to the toilet manual in the information kit.
Doors and Windows
Door locks and hinges should be lubricated periodically with powdered graphite to keep them operating easily and to
protect against freeze-up. Windows should be cleaned using a good glass cleaner. When cleaning ice from windows
always use a plastic scraper and avoid damaging the seals and sealant along the edge of the windows.

Spring Startup
Following a storage period, reactivate your Motorhome by hooking up the water pump. Pressurize the water system
and make sure it is not leaking. A visual check is all that is needed. (Monitor the water system for 15 minutes.)
Clean all your appliances and have the propane line purged by a reputable dealer. Make certain everything in the
Motorhome works correctly. Consult the chassis manual for any chassis maintenance recommendations. Now you are
ready to hit the road.
Cold Temperature Operation
Although your Motorhome is designed to withstand colder temperatures, we cannot guarantee the vehicle not to
freeze. Certain precautions should be taken in preparing for sub-zero temperature travelling.
Do not use the fresh water system in cold weather temperatures. Use only a carry-on water supply in these
conditions.
Chassis
Check engine coolant level and add antifreeze, if required, to protect against lowest expected temperature. Change
engine oil to the recommended viscosity to aid cold weather starting. See the chassis manual in the information kit for
further recommendations.
LP Gas
When travelling in winter, propane is recommended, as it will vaporize in extreme cold (above -42 °C). Butane is not
recommended due to its high vaporization temperature (0 °C). Use of butane in cold temperatures may block the
system and cause components to malfunction. Add approximately .25 liters of methyl alcohol to your LP gas container
to prevent freeze-up.
Waste System
To prevent winter freeze-up, add regular RV antifreeze through the toilet and kitchen drains, directly into the holding
tanks. Be sure to add sufficient amounts in order to protect the total volume of the holding tanks.
NOTE: Do not use alcohol-based antifreeze or other petroleum products.

Warranty Policy
Unity Motorhome
2013 NEW VEHICLE LIMITED WARRANTY
TRIPLE E CANADA LTD. (Revised Feb. 2013)
This New Vehicle Limited Warranty is the sole and only warranty applicable to your new Motorhome. This
Warranty is issued by Triple E Canada Ltd., only, which is the manufacturer of your Motorhome. Triple E
Canada Ltd., uses a variety of trade and/or division names in marketing or advertising its motorhomes.
Triple E Canada Ltd., is referred to throughout this Warranty as “Triple E RV.”
1. Basic Coverage.
Triple E RV warrants to the first retail purchaser of the Motorhome that all parts and components of the
Motorhome manufactured by Triple E RV will be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period
of twenty-four months or 24,000 miles (40,000 kilometers), whichever occurs first, after the date of purchase
by the first retail purchaser of the Motorhome from an authorized Triple E RV dealer. Defective parts shall be
repaired or replaced at the election of Triple E RV upon return of the Motorhome to an authorized Triple E
RV service center or dealer. In addition, Triple E RV will cover the cost of labor by an authorized Triple E RV
service center or dealer to remove, repair and/or replace such defective parts covered by this Warranty.
2. Structural Coverage.
Triple E RV warrants to the first retail purchaser of the Motorhome that all structural components of the
Motorhome manufactured by Triple E RV will be free of defects in materials and workmanship for a period
of thirty-six months or 36,000 miles (60,000 kilometers), whichever occurs first, after the date of purchase
by the first retail purchaser from an authorized Triple E RV dealer. All such defective structural parts shall
be repaired or replaced at the election of Triple E RV upon return to an authorized Triple E RV service
center or dealer. In addition, Triple E RV will cover the cost of labor by an authorized Triple E RV service
center or dealer to remove, repair and/or replace such defective structural parts. For purposes of structural
warranty coverage, structural components shall include only the main steel frame of the coach and all
steel members welded to it, studs and framing in the walls of the coach, roof rafters and delamination of
the fiberglass body parts of the coach. All other items are covered solely by and are limited by the Basic
Coverage of this Warranty. On Motorhomes where the chassis and coach is designed and built by another
separate manufacturer, Triple E RV makes no structural coverage warranty whatsoever, and the sole and
only structural warranty coverage is provided by the manufacturer of the chassis or coach.
3. Additional Warranty Terms.
In the event a Motorhome is used for commercial or rental fleet purposes, the Basic Coverage and Structural
Coverage Warranties specified above shall be limited to a period of twelve months or 12,000 miles (20,000
kilometers), whichever occurs first, from the date of original purchase. All mileage warranty limitations set
forth in this Warranty will be increased by that number of miles or kilometers equal to the miles or kilometers
that the Motorhome was driven from its place of original manufacture to its original selling Triple E RV
dealership.
1-86
Unity Motorhome
Warranty Policy
Although the Warranty is extended only to the first retail purchaser of the Motorhome, the Warranty is
transferable to the second owner of the Motorhome upon written request to Triple E RV received within thirty
(30) days after sale and transfer of title to the Motorhome from its first retail purchaser to its second owner,
accompanied by satisfactory proof of sale and transfer. Warranties for any Motorhome used in an RV rental
or lease fleet or for a commercial use are not transferable to any subsequent dealer, owner, fleet operator
or retail or consumer purchaser.
4. Component Warranties.
Triple E RV obtains many items of equipment, appliances, components, sub-assemblies and/or the chassis
of the Motorhome (referred to in this Warranty as a “Component”) from other manufacturers. Each of these
manufacturers offers its own separate warranty (and in some cases warranty extension programs) covering
its respective Component(s). Triple E RV assigns to the first purchaser of the Motorhome each and every
such separate warranty with respect to a Component as the sole, exclusive and only warranty in respect
of such Component. Triple E RV provides no separate or independent warranty coverage for any such
Component(s). The rights of a purchaser or owner of a Triple E RV Motorhome in respect of such separate
Component(s) or the warranties covering such Component(s) may be conditioned upon or limited by the
specific terms and conditions of such separate warranties. Information on separate Component warranties
and registration for such warranties from Component manufacturers may be found in the Information Kit.
5. Chassis.
The Motorhome chassis and all components, assemblies, equipment or parts supplied or affixed to the
chassis as received by Triple E RV from its supplier or manufacturer are Components and are covered
only under separate warranties issued by the original chassis or Component manufacturer. Even if Triple E
RV modifies the chassis in order to assemble the Motorhome, the sole warranty in respect of the chassis
is provided by the manufacturer of the chassis. Please contact us for details about our responsibilities for
chassis modifications before beginning any repairs.
6. Exclusions from Warranty.
The foregoing Warranty does not apply to any Motorhome which has been altered outside of the Triple
E RV factory in a way which in our judgment affects its stability, operation or reliability or which has been
subject to misuse, negligence or accident. The foregoing Warranty does not cover any Motorhome that has
been shipped to a location outside of the United States or Canada. The foregoing Warranty excludes and
does not cover or provide any remedy for damage, defects or loss resulting from abuse or misuse of the
Motorhome or its equipment, appliances, components, sub-assemblies and/or chassis, failure to properly
winterize the Motorhome, failure to provide regular maintenance and/or service, adjustments, tune ups,
alignments, road service or failure to protect the Motorhome from further damage if any initial indication
of damage has occurred. The Warranty excludes failure caused by overheating (regardless of cause),
contamination of lubricants, coolants, failure of hoses, fittings, connections or lines and failure to operate
and maintain the Motorhome as recommended or required in the Owner’s Manual.

with regularly-scheduled maintenance recommendations of both Triple E RV and any manufacturers of
Components, and/or the chassis of your Motorhome. Your Warranty does not cover loss, defects or failures
resulting from exposure to extreme conditions, including extremely cold weather.
Your Warranty does not cover defects or repairs required because of improper loading, load distribution,
accident, collision, vandalism, abuse, misuse, neglect, fire, flood, normal wear or improper or inadequate
maintenance, rust or corrosion, exposure to elements or costs incurred in towing, transporting or presenting
your Motorhome for repair under the Warranty. This Warranty does not cover any Component not
manufactured by Triple E RV, nor does it cover sealant, trims, fabrics, floor coverings, upholstery, draperies,
blinds, paint, gel coat or decals which have experienced normal pigmentation or color changes as the result
of use, age, exposure to the sun or weather.
This Warranty excludes and does not provide coverage for consequential or incidental damages, such
as the loss of your Motorhome, loss of time, inconvenience, expenses, transportation to and from the
dealer or manufacturing plant location, bus, taxi or air fares, telephone, travel, rental vehicle, overnight
accommodations, loss or damage to your personal property, commercial loss, loss of income, loss of use or
other incidental or consequential damages or expenses.
The express warranties stated herein are the sole and only warranties issued by Triple E RV in
respect of your Motorhome, and Triple E RV hereby expressly disclaims all other warranties,
including implied warranties of merchantability or warranties of fitness for any particular purpose.
Neither your dealer nor any other person is authorized to create or imply any other warranty on
behalf of Triple E RV beyond those expressed herein. Your warranty expressly excludes liability for
incidental or consequential damages.
7. Obtaining Warranty Repairs.
To obtain warranty repairs, you must at your own cost present your Motorhome to an authorized service
center or dealer during normal business hours and provide a written list of claimed defects or items to be
repaired. If requested, you may be required to provide records showing that the Motorhome has been
maintained as required or recommended by the Owner’s Manual. As the owner, you are solely responsible
for maintenance of the Motorhome as required or recommended by the Owner’s Manual and associated
costs of that maintenance. Repairs necessitated by failure to maintain the Motorhome as required or
recommended are not covered by this Warranty.
If an authorized service center or dealer is unwilling or unable to make a warranty repair, Triple E RV may
request the opportunity to cause those repairs to be made at another authorized service center or dealer.
Refusal to grant a request to transport the Motorhome to another authorized service center or dealer at
Triple E RV’s cost and expense for mileage for such travel may void Warranty coverage for the requested
repairs.

8. Questions about Warranty Services.
You may contact the Triple E RV Warranty Department at its toll free number (1-877-992-9906) if you have
a question about this Warranty or need assistance in locating an authorized service center or dealer or if
you are dissatisfied with Warranty repairs. You should also contact the Triple E RV Warranty Department at
this toll free number in the event it is necessary to have Warranty repairs performed at a site other than an
authorized Triple E RV service center or dealer. All such repairs performed at a site other than an authorized
Triple E RV service center or dealer must be authorized by the Triple E RV Warranty Department before
Warranty work can be done. Prior authorization is necessary to ensure the availability of Warranty coverage
and to determine that the facility is qualified to perform such repair work.
9. Time Limitation for Initiating Claims.
Any claim for breach of this Warranty or any applicable implied or statutory warranty must be initiated within
one year after the date on which the breach allegedly occurs.
10. Sole and Exclusive Remedy.
Your sole and exclusive remedy for breach of this Warranty is monetary damages in an amount equal to the
actual cost of material and/or labor necessary to repair or replace defective parts that were not repaired or
replaced under this Warranty. Incidental and consequential damages are not recoverable. Some states or
provinces may not allow for the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, and in such
states, the above limitation or exclusion may be limited or may not apply at all.
Product improvement is an ongoing process at Triple E RV. We reserve the right to change specifications,
operating instructions, standards and options on any and all products without prior notice and without imposing
any additional obligation on Triple E RV to install the same upon its products which were manufactured prior
to such changes.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from
state to state and/or by province.
