contains these component manufacturer supplied manuals or information sheets, warranty
cards and/or registrations. Consult this information for questions regarding operating,
maintenance, servicing instructions and warranty coverage. It is important you complete
and mail warranty cards and registrations within the prescribed time limits to avoid loss of
warranty coverage.

In the United States
If you believe that your recreation vehicle has an alleged defect that could cause a crash or
cause injury or death, you should immediately inform the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration (NHTSA) and Starcraft.
If NHTSA receives similar complaints, it may open an investigation, and if it finds that
a safety defect exists in a group of vehicles it may order a recall and remedy campaign.
However, NHTSA cannot become involved in individual problems between you, your dealer
or Starcraft. For additional information, please refer to the NHTSA website at www.safercar.

Manufacturing Process
Starcraft recreation vehicles are manufactured for use as temporary living
quarters for recreation, camping and travel uses, all as defined by the bylaws
of the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA).
This recreation vehicle is not intended for use as a full-time residence or
for commercial use. Commercial use means using the recreation vehicle as
a business asset such as a mobile office or using the recreation vehicle for
lease or rental purposes.
Starcraft reserves the right to discontinue or change specifications or design at any time
without notice and without incurring any obligation whatsoever. Recreation vehicles built
for sale in Canada may differ to conform to Canadian Codes.
Options & Equipment
Starcraft recreation vehicles are available in several sizes and models, so accessories and
components may differ slightly between models. Some equipment described in this manual
may not apply to your recreation vehicle.
Starcraft reserves the right to discontinue or change specifications or design at any time
without notice, and to make additions or improvements without incurring any obligations
upon itself to install these changes on its products previously manufactured. Recreation
vehicles built for sale in Canada may differ to conform to Canadian Codes.
Customer Responsibility
It is important you read and understand all instructions and precautions before operating the
recreation vehicle. Even if you are an experienced RV’er we encourage you to thoroughly
read this Owner’s Manual, as well as the information contained in your Warranty Packet.
As technology advances, new improvements enter the RV industry every day, and each RV
manufacturer has its own unique manufacturing process.
Familiarize yourself with the applicable warranties. There are components that are excluded
or warranted separately by their individual manufacturer’s limited warranty (refer to the
Warranty Packet).
5
Section 1: Warranty & Service
As the owner of the recreation vehicle, you are responsible for regular and proper
maintenance performed in accordance with this manual and the OEM manuals. Regular and
proper maintenance will help prevent conditions arising from neglect that are not covered
by warranty. It is your responsibility and obligation to return your recreation vehicle to your
dealer for warranty service repair.
Change Of Address/Ownership
Please notify Starcraft Customer Service as soon as possible of a change of address by writing
or calling us. For notification of a change of ownership, please fill out the appropriate form
located in this manual and mail it to Starcraft Customer Service along with documentation
showing proof of ownership.
Dealer Responsibility
At the time of sale of the new RV, your Starcraft dealer is expected to:
Deliver your RV in the best condition possible. Your RV must pass the dealer’s predelivery inspection (PDI), including all systems tests.
Provide orientation of the RV, its systems, components and operation.
Request that you read all warranty information and explain any provision not clearly
understood.
Ensure you receive the Warranty Packet. Your dealer can assist you in completing the
OEM warranty cards or registrations, and locate any required component model or
serial numbers.
Complete and return the “Warranty Registration and Customer Delivery Form” to
Starcraft within 10 days of delivery to activate the applicable warranty coverage.
The Limited Warranty is activated only after Starcraft receives a signed and dated
“Warranty Registration and Customer Delivery Form” from your dealer.
Suggestions For Obtaining Service
To help ensure your dealer provides the level of service you expect, here are some suggestions
we would like to make:
Contact your dealer at once… Do not wait until you are ready to use your RV. Your dealer
may not be able to service it immediately and/or the repair may require parts be ordered. The
dealer’s service department is busiest on Mondays, Fridays and before the holidays.
Prepare for the appointment… If you are having warranty work performed, be sure to
have the right papers with you. Take your warranty folder and have your vehicle information
available. All work to be performed may not be covered by the warranty. Discuss additional
charges with the service personnel.
Prepare a list… Provide your dealer with a written list of specific repairs needed. It is
important that you provide any vehicle repair history to the dealer’s service personnel.
Keep a maintenance log of your vehicle’s service history. This can often provide a clue to
the current issue.
Be reasonable with your requests… If you leave a list with several items and you need
your vehicle returned back by a specific time, discuss the situation with the dealer’s service
personnel and list your items in order of priority.
This may include making a second
appointment for work not completed or parts that the dealer may need to order.
6
Section 1: Warranty & Service
Don’t expect to look over the technician’s shoulder… Please don’t be offended if you are
told you cannot watch the work being done. Some insurance requirements forbid admission
of customers to the service area.
Inspect the work performed… Finally, check out the service or repair job when you pick
up your vehicle. Notify the dealer’s service personnel immediately of any dissatisfaction.
If you cannot return the vehicle immediately for repair, make an appointment as soon as
possible.
Please be aware that all service shops require notification of any issues with their repairs
within a specified time limit. Make sure you are familiar with their repair policies.
Customer Relations
Starcraft has empowered its dealers to make warranty and repair decisions.
If a special circumstance occurs that requires information from Starcraft, we have asked
your dealer’s service management to make the contact on your behalf. This is why you
should always talk to your dealer’s service management first.
NOTE: Please provide the following information when contacting us
for assistance:
Customer name and current location.
Phone number where you can be reached.
17-digit chassis Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)
or 8-digit Serial Number.
Your date of purchase.
If applicable, the component description, serial
number and model number.
A detailed description of the concern.

Obtaining Emergency Warranty Repair
A roadside emergency can happen at any time, whether your recreation vehicle is new or old.
If you are traveling, using the following guidelines can help get you back on the road faster.
1.
Call 1-800-945-4787 or use our website dealer locator to find an authorized Starcraft
dealer in your area. Contact them for an appointment; they will handle all warranty
repair billing and returned parts for you.
2.
If you cannot locate an authorized Starcraft dealer near you, ask the campground staff
for referrals or check the local telephone yellow pages. Or contact Starcraft Customer
Service or your selling dealer for assistance in locating a repair facility.
8
a.
Contact the RV repair facility to discuss your situation and make an appointment.
Ask how their billing will be handled. They may choose to bill Starcraft directly;
otherwise, you are expected to pay them.
b.
Have the RV repair facility inspect your RV. Either they or you must call Starcraft
Customer Service to discuss applicable warranty coverage prior to any repair
work being performed.
c.
Starcraft Customer Service will issue an authorization number upon warranty
repair approval and advise if any original parts need to be returned.
d.
Once Starcraft Customer Service has issued an authorization number, the RV
repair facility may begin actual repair to your RV.
e.
Inspect the completed repair work thoroughly. If you are not satisfied, communicate
that immediately to the RV repair facility management. Make sure you are satisfied
with the repair before you pay or leave the premises.

The Starcraft warranty covers this recreational vehicle (“RV”), when used only for
its intended purpose of recreational travel and camping, for two (2) years. It covers RV’s sold
in, and remain in, the United States, U.S. Territories and Canada, only. The warranty period
begins on the date that the RV is delivered to the first retail purchaser by an independent,
authorized dealer of Starcraft, or, if the dealer places the vehicle in service prior to retail
sale, on the date the RV is first placed in such service. In the event that a substantial defect
in material or workmanship, attributable to Starcraft, is found to exist during the warranty
period, it will be repaired or replaced, at Starcraft’s option, without charge to the RV owner,
in accordance with the terms, conditions and limitations of this limited warranty.
This limited warranty applies to the first consumer purchaser only. All rights and
limitations within this warranty are applicable to the original owner of the RV only. You
may contact an independent, authorized dealer for details.
Starcraft’s obligation to repair or replace defective materials or workmanship is
the sole obligation of Starcraft under this limited warranty. Starcraft reserves the right to
have new or remanufactured parts of similar quality used to complete any work, and to make
parts and design changes from time to time without notice to anyone. Starcraft reserves
the right to make changes in the design or material of its products without incurring any
obligation to incorporate such changes in any product previously manufactured. Starcraft

intended to extend to the future performance of this RV, or any of its materials, components
or parts. In addition, the RV owner’s obligation to notify Starcraft, or one of its independent,
authorized dealers, of a claimed defect does not modify any obligation placed on the RV
owner to contact Starcraft directly when attempting to pursue remedies under state or federal
law.
LIMITATIONS, EXCLUSIONS AND DISCLAIMER OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES
ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY THAT IS FOUND TO ARISE BY WAY
OF STATE OR FEDERAL LAW, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF

warranty, and no one has the authority to enlarge, amend or modify this limited warranty.
Any selling or servicing dealer is not Starcraft’s agent, but an independent entity.
STARCRAFT SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES THAT MAY RESULT FROM BREACH OF THIS
LIMITED WARRANTY OR ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY.

(30) days for those types of repairs to be completed, you must, to the extent permitted by
law, notify Starcraft directly, in writing, at the above address, of the unsuccessful repair(s) of
the alleged defect(s) so that Starcraft can become directly involved in making sure that you

LEGAL REMEDIES
Any action to enforce any portion of this limited warranty, or any implied warranty,
shall be commenced within six (6) months after expiration of the warranty coverage period
designated above. Any performance of repairs shall not suspend this limitation period
from expiring. Any performance of repairs after the warranty coverage period has expired,
or performance of repairs regarding anything excluded from coverage under this limited
warranty shall be considered “good will” repairs, and they will not alter the express terms of
this limited warranty, or extend the warranty coverage period or this limitation period.

WARRANTY REGISTRATIONS
Your warranty registration records should be completed and delivered to the
manufacturers of component parts. The selling dealership will assist you in completing and
submitting the Starcraft product warranty registration form. That form must be returned to
Starcraft within ten (10) days of your taking delivery of the RV. Your warranty will not be
registered unless this warranty registration is completed and received by Starcraft. Failure

perform such care, is not covered by this limited warranty.

Fire Safety
If a fire does start, follow these basic safety rules:
1.
2.
Have everyone evacuate the vehicle immediately.
After everyone is clear and accounted for, check the fire to see if you can attempt to
put it out.
3. If it is large, or the fire is fuel-fed, get clear of the vehicle and have the Fire Department
handle the emergency.
4. Do not attempt to use water to put out the fire. Water can spread some types of fire, and
electrocution is possible with an electrical fire.
Refer to the following sections for additional fire safety information.
Electrical Systems, In case of an electrical fire.
Appliances, In case of a grease fire.
Fire Extinguisher
Fire extinguishers are classified and rated by fire type, A, B and C. These classifications
identify the kinds of fires or burning materials they are designed to fight.
Class A -Solid materials such as wood, paper, cloth, rubber and some plastics.
Class B -Liquids such as grease, cooking oils, gasoline, kerosene or other flammable
liquids.
Class C -Electrical such as electrical wires or other live electrical equipment.
A dry chemical fire extinguisher has been installed by the entrance door. It is suitable for
extinguishing small fires of the Class B or C type only.
We suggest you become thoroughly familiar with the operating instructions displayed on the
side of the fire extinguisher.
NOTE: For information on how to use your fire extinguisher, refer to
the fire extinguisher user’s manual provided by the fire extinguisher
manufacturer..
Inspection and maintenance
Read and follow all instructions on the label and user’s manual provided by the fire
extinguisher manufacturer.
20
Section 2: Occupant Safety
Inspect the extinguisher at least once a week (more frequently if it is exposed to weather
or possible tampering). This should also be done before beginning a vacation or during an
extended trip.

Do not check the pressure, test or practice using the fire extinguisher by
squeezing the trigger, even briefly. The fire extinguisher is not rechargeable
or refillable. Once used, it will gradually lose pressure and will not be fully
charged for use in an emergency.

Do not turn the electrical power back on or plug in any appliances after the use
of a fire extinguisher. Please refer to the fire extinguisher’s user manual for
further instructions on maintenance and clean up.
Smoke Alarm
The smoke alarm in your vehicle is listed for use in recreation vehicles. They only work
properly if they are operational and maintained. They have a limited life and will wear
out over time. Immediately replace the detector if it is not working properly, if it displays
any type of problem, or within five years of use. Be sure to read, understand and follow
the information provided by the smoke alarm manufacturer, including information on the
limited life of smoke alarms.
Be aware the smoke alarm is not fool proof and cannot detect fires if smoke does not
reach it. Anything preventing smoke from reaching the alarm may delay or prevent an
alarm.
Though the alarm horn in this detector meets or exceeds current UL standards, it may not
be heard for reasons that include (but not limited to): a closed or partially closed door, other
noise from electronics, appliances or traffic.

This smoke alarm will not alert hearing impaired residents. Special
alarms with flashing strobe lights are recommended for the hearing
impaired
Only use the replacement battery recommended by the smoke detector
manufacturer. The smoke detector alarm may not operate properly with
other batteries. Never use a rechargeable battery as it may not provide a
constant charge. Never disconnect the battery to silence the alarm.
Test the smoke alarm operation after the vehicle has been in storage,
before each trip and at least once per week during use. Do not disconnect
the battery or the alarm.
The smoke alarm is operational once the battery is correctly installed. It will not
function if the battery is missing, disconnected, dead, the wrong type or not installed
correctly. It requires one standard 9V battery. Refer to the user’s guide, for correct
21
Section 2: Occupant Safety
battery and installation information,
The LED light will indicate the battery is functioning properly. When the production of
combustion is sensed, the smoke detector sounds a loud alarm that continues until the air is
cleared. The LED light will also give a visual indication of a sounding alarm.
When the battery becomes weak, the alarm will “beep” about once a minute indicating
a low battery. This warning should last for 30 days. You MUST replace the battery once the
alarms low battery warning (beeping) starts to assure continued protection.
When the battery is removed from the alarm, the battery flag will pop up; the alarm cannot
be installed to the mounting bracket without a battery.
To test, stand at arm’s length from the smoke alarm as the alarm horn is loud and may be
harmful to your hearing. The test button will accurately test all functions. Never use an
open flame to test the smoke alarm.
Do not remove the warning label
located near the smoke alarm from your
recreation vehicle:
Maintenance
Vacuum off any dust on the cover of the smoke
alarm using a soft brush attachment. Test

Never use water, cleaners or solvents to clean
the smoke alarm as they may damage the

to the manufacturer’s use guide for detailed
maintenance information.
Combination Carbon Monoxide /Propane
Alarm
Your motor home is equipped with a combination carbon monoxide (CO) / propane alarm
that is listed for use in recreation vehicles. The combination carbon monoxide/propane
alarm will only work if it is operational and maintained.

22
The carbon monoxide detector installed is intended for use in ordinary
indoor locations of recreation vehicles. It is not designed to comply with
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) commercial or
industrial standards.
Do not disconnect the battery or the alarm.
Individuals with medical problems may consider using warning
devices that provide audible and visual signals for carbon monoxide
concentrations under 30 PPM.
This alarm will only indicate the presence of carbon monoxide gas at the
sensor. Carbon monoxide gas may be present in other areas.
Section 2: Occupant Safety
The alarm is wired directly to the 12-volt electrical system,
with continuous power being supplied by the recreation
vehicle battery. There is no 9-volt battery power supply in
the carbon monoxide/propane alarm. If the battery
cable is disconnected at the battery terminals, the
combination alarm will not work.Be sure to read,
understand and follow the owner’s information from the
manufacturer of the combination CO/propane alarm
supplied in your Warranty Packet.
This includes


(alarm may vary from model shown above)
The ultimate responsibility for protection against toxic carbon monoxide
fumes rests solely on you. Installing a carbon monoxide/propane alarm
is just the first step in protecting your family from toxic carbon monoxide
poisoning
The following symptoms are related to carbon monoxide poisoning and
should be discussed with all members of the household:
Mild exposure: Slight headache, nausea, vomiting, fatigue (often
described as “flu-like” symptoms).
Medium exposure: Severe throbbing headaches, drowsiness, confusion,
fast heart rate.
Extreme exposure: Unconsciousness, convulsions, cardio-respiratory
failure, death.
information regarding the limited life of the alarm.
Carbon monoxide (CO) is an insidious poison. It is a colorless, odorless and tasteless gas.
Many cases of reported carbon monoxide poisoning indicate while victims are aware they
are not well, they become so disoriented they are unable to save themselves by either exiting
the motor home or calling for assistance. Young children and household pets may be the
first affected.
Your combination carbon monoxide/propane alarm is designed to detect the toxic carbon
monoxide fumes that result from incomplete combustion, such as those emitted from
appliances, furnaces, fireplaces and auto exhaust. A carbon monoxide/propane alarm is NOT
A SUBSTITUTE for other combustible gas, fire or smoke alarms. This carbon monoxide
alarm is designed to detect carbon monoxide gas from ANY source of combustion.
It is not designed to detect smoke, fire or any other gas. Please note that there are hazards
against which carbon monoxide detection may not be effective, such as natural gas leaks or
explosions.
This alarm is designed to sense the presence of carbon monoxide/propane gas, however
there are other combustible fumes or vapors that may be detected by the sensor including
(but not limited to): acetone, alcohol, butane and gasoline.
These chemicals can be found in commonly used items such as deodorants, colognes,
perfumes, adhesives, lacquer, kerosene, glues, wine, liquor, most cleaning agents and the
23
Section 2: Occupant Safety
propellants of aerosol cans.
High temperatures can activate glue and adhesive vapors. If you close up a recreational
vehicle on a hot day, the chemicals used in its construction may be detected for months after
the vehicle was constructed (for more information, refer to Sec. 2, Formaldehyde).
What you should do if the alarm sounds

Actuation of this detector indicates the presence of carbon monoxide
which can kill you.
Never turn the 12-volt battery disconnect control to the off position
and disconnect the battery cable to silence an alarm. The alarm will
automatically sense when the level of carbon monoxide in the air reaches
below dangerous levels. You should stay outside the vehicle in fresh
air until the alarm is silenced. When the alarm sounds, do not stand too
close to the alarm. The sound produced by the alarm is loud because it is
designed to wake a person in an emergency. Prolonged exposure to the
alarm at a close distance may be harmful to your hearing.

Operate the RESET/SILENCE button.
Call your emergency services (fire department or 911).
Immediately move to fresh air (outdoors or by an open door or window).
Do not re-enter the premises or move away from the open door or window until the
emergency service responders have arrived, the premises have been aired out, and your
alarm remains in its normal condition.
If your alarm reactivates within a 24 hour period, repeat steps 1-4 and call a qualified
appliance technician to investigate for sources of carbon monoxide from fuel burning
equipment and appliances, and inspect for proper operation of this equipment. Make sure
that motor vehicle(s) are not, and have not been, operating in an attached garage or adjacent
to the motor home.
If problems are identified during this inspection, have the alarm serviced immediately. Note
any combustion equipment not inspected by the technician and consult the manufacturer’s
instructions or contact the manufacturer directly for more information about carbon
monoxide safety and this alarm.
Alarm signals
Normal operation: The LED will maintain a steady green light, indicating that the
alarm is powered.
CO alarm condition: The red LED light will remain steady and the alarm will sound 4
“BEEPS” then silent for 5 seconds. These signals indicate immediate action is required.
Propane gas alarm: The red LED flash and the alarm will sound a steady tone. These
signals indicate immediate action is required.
Alarm malfunction/low battery: The gas LED will remain off and the Operational/
CO LED will alternate red/green and the alarm will sound once every 15 seconds.
End of life alarm: The LED will flash red/red, green/green and the alarm will “BEEP”
every 25-30 seconds. The alarm should be immediately replaced.
Maintenance
Vacuum the alarm cover at least once a year. Clean the cover by hand using a cloth dampened
24
Section 2: Occupant Safety
in clean water. Dry with a soft cloth. Do not spray the front panel of the alarm with cleaning
agents or waxes. This action may damage the sensor causing an alarm or cause the alarm to
malfunction. Do not paint the face of the alarm.
Testing the combination carbon monoxide/propane alarm

Test the alarm operation after the RV has been in storage, before each trip and
at least once per week during use.
The TEST/RESET button tests all ELECTRICAL functions of the alarm. The TEST/Mute
switch is located on the front of the alarm. Press and hold the test button for 1 second. The
alarm is working properly if the GREEN indicator light changes color to RED and the horn
beeps 4 times. The Gas LED should also blink red.
NOTE: Pressing the test button does not check the sensor operation. Refer to the carbon monoxide/propane alarm manufacturers
user’s manual provided in the Warranty Packet for additional information on testing the sensors.
Repair or replace the combination carbon monoxide/propane alarm when the alarm no
longer functions. As with any electronic product, it has a limited life. Alarms that do not
work cannot protect you.
NOTE: The carbon monoxide/propane alarm manufacturer strongly
recommends replacement of the detector five years after the date of
purchase.
Formaldehyde
Some components in the recreation vehicle contain formaldehyde-based adhesives that may
release formaldehyde fumes into the air for an unknown period of time. Individuals who are
allergic to formaldehyde gas fumes may experience irritation to eyes, ears, nose and throat.
Indoor air quality may also be affected by leaving your vehicle closed for a period of time.
To aid in dissipation, ventilate the recreation vehicle
by opening all windows and circulate the air with a
fan.
This label is located inside the vehicle near the entry
door. The label should be left permanently affixed to
the recreation vehicle:
25
Section 2: Occupant Safety
Extended Or Full Time Usage
Your new recreation vehicle has been built for enjoyment in a recreational manner. It is not
intended for use as full-time quarters or a permanent residence. Continuous living in your
vehicle could cause accelerated wear and damage to the various components.

Continuous or permanent living in your recreation vehicle may affect your
warranty coverage and may void the “Limited Warranty” applicable to your
vehicle.
Cold Weather Usage
When used in freezing or below freezing temperatures, the precautions should be taken:
Fresh water and drainage systems - preparations to avoid freeze-ups.
Propane gas (if so equipped) and sufficient power is needed for protection from possible
freeze-ups on the propane gas regulator. Keep in mind that more frequent furnace
operation will substantially increase battery draw and propane gas use.
During cool weather usage, ventilation or addition of a dehumidifier may be required
to reduce condensation.
Check outside extrusions on compartment doors, locks, slide outs, windows, vents, etc.,
for frozen moisture before operating to avoid damage to parts.
Condensation

Condensation may cause dampness, mildew, mold, staining and, if allowed to
continue, it may result in damage to the recreation vehicle (damage caused by
condensation is not warrantable). It can also lead to mold or mildew issues,
which could be a health hazard.
Condensation is a natural phenomenon. The amount of condensation will vary with climate
conditions, particularly the relative humidity. Condensation occurs because there is water
vapor present in the air. When the temperature reaches the “dew point” the water vapor in
the air condenses and changes to a liquid form.
Proper ventilation or the use of a dehumidifier (customer supplied) will assist in controlling
the condensation. Suggestions to eliminate warm moist air:
26
Crack open windows and roof vents to allow warm moist air to escape.
Open the bath roof vent (if so equipped) approximately ½” when showering.
Use the range hood fan (if so equipped) when cooking or washing dishes.
Avoid hanging wet towels (or clothes) inside the recreation vehicle to dry.
If found in cabinets or closets, open the doors slightly to provide ventilation.
Section 3: Pre-Travel Information
Tow Vehicle
If you plan to tow your recreation vehicle with a tow vehicle you already own, or if you
plan to purchase a new one, make sure the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) or your
recreation vehicle does not exceed your tow vehicles towing rating.
Ask your automotive dealer how to obtain a copy of information that deals with towing
considerations, with or without an optional vehicle tow package.
Vehicle Labels
Decals and data plates used throughout the recreation vehicle aid in its safe and efficient
operation; others give service instructions. Read all decals, data and instruction plates
before operating your recreation vehicle. Any decal, data or instruction plate painted over,
damaged or removed should be replaced.
Keep a record of the 17-digit chassis vehicle identification number (VIN), the 8-digit serial
number, and your license number in the event theft or vandalism requires you to supply this
information to the authorities.
Weight Terms
GAWR - Gross Axle Weight Rating: The value specified by the vehicle manufacturer as the
load-carrying capacity of a single axle system, as measured at the tire-to-ground interfaces.
This is the total weight a given axle is capable of carrying.
GCWR - Gross Combined Weight Rating: The value specified by the trailer manufacturer
as the maximum allowable loaded weight of the trailer including full propane cylinders, a
full load of water, and full generator fuel if applicable.
GVWR - Gross Vehicle Weight Rating: The value specified by the manufacturer as the
maximum permissible weight of the fully loaded trailer.
OCCC - Occupant And Cargo Carrying Capacity: Is equal to the GVWR of the trailer,
minus the weight of the trailer (as completed at the factory) minus the weight of all personal
cargo, and, if applicable, minus the weight of a full tank (or tanks) of propane and the full
weight of potable water, including the water heater (if so equipped). Additions to or other
changes made to the trailer after it left the factory will affect (reduce) the OCCC.
UVW - Unloaded Vehicle Weight: The weight of the trailer as manufactured at the factory
with the weight of a full tank (or tanks) of propane.
Weight and Capacity Labels
The following labels are typically located on the roadside front corner of the RV. An
additional Occupant & Cargo Carrying Capacity label is also located on the inward surface
of the entry door.
OCCC Label (Occupant & Cargo Carrying

and weighed before leaving the factory. This
maximum capacity would not include the weight of a full fresh water tank. The full load
of water weight would need to be subtracted from the maximum cargo weight. Additions or
other changes made to the trailer after it leaves the factory will affect (reduce) the OCCC.
27
Section 3: Pre-Travel Information
The lower portion of this label is provided voluntarily and indicates the weight value of the
trailer as it was manufactured and weighed at the factory. It includes full propane tanks and
full generator fuel (if so equipped).
For example: If the tires are rated at 2,000 lbs. each x 4 tires = 8,000 lbs. and the RV has
a GVWR of 9,000 lbs. with a tongue weight of 1,200 lbs. The actual weight on the RV
tires is (9,000 – 1,200) which equals 7,800 lbs. which is within the weight rating of the
tires.
The Federal Certification Label is required
by the government to verify the trailer

Tire & Loading Information
Loading Your Recreation Vehicle

Never load the motor home in excess of the GVWR or the GAWR
for either axle. Overloading your motor home may result in adverse
handling characteristics and damage to the chassis.
DO NOT EXCEED YOUR GVWR! This means you should weigh
your vehicle as loaded for your normal travel to determine the actual
weight. If you exceed the GVWR, you MUST remove items from the
motor home, or drain liquids, then re-weigh the vehicle to ensure you
have achieved a safe weight.
The actual weight of the vehicle, passengers, all options, liquids, the
hitch weight of your towed vehicle and your personal cargo is important
for you to know so you do not exceed the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating
(GVWR) of the motor home. The volume of space available for storage
may exceed the amount of available cargo capacity. Large storage
compartments have been designed to accommodate normal camping
items, which are bulky, but not necessarily heavy.
the RV.
Store and secure all loose items inside the RV before traveling. Overlooked items such as
canned goods, or small appliances on the countertop, cooking pans on the range or freestanding furniture items can become dangerous projectiles during a sudden stop.
28
Section 3: Pre-Travel Information
Distribute cargo side-to-side so the weight on each tire does not exceed one-half of the
GAWR for either axle. Store and secure all loose items inside the RV before traveling. Make
sure any tie down straps (if so equipped) on appliances or furniture are secure. .Load heavy
objects on the floor, or as low as possible.

Your recreation vehicle’s load capacity is designated by weight, not
by volume, so you cannot necessarily use all available space when
loading the vehicle. Do not exceed your GVWR and ensure you are
loading the vehicle as evenly as you can for the best possible handling.
Ensure heavy items are secured so they do not shift during travel.
Store items in areas designated for storage. Do not store anything in the
areas reserved for the converter, electrical panels, furnace or water
heater, etc.
For traveling safety, it is important to make sure the tie down straps are
secured on all appliances such as the toaster, coffee maker, etc. Vibration
during travel will move the appliances, creating the potential for them to
fall out of their cabinets possibly causing injury.
Rear Bumper

Do not add items to the recreation vehicle rear bumper. Add-on items will
eventually damage your bumper. Damage caused by such aftermarket
equipment installation or improper loading voids the Towable Limited
Warranty.
The rear bumper of your recreation vehicle is not designed to carry cargo. Items that extend
beyond the bumper OR weigh over 100 lbs. (45kg) will place undo strain on the bumper.
The 100 lb. bumper capacity includes the weight of the spare tire (if so equipped).
NOTE: Some items may fall within the given weight range, (like
bike racks) however, they can still cause damage. Over time, added
bumper weight will cause damage from the motion created while
traveling. In addition, extra weight behind the axle may reduce the
hitch weigh which can adversely affect handling.
29
Section 3: Pre-Travel Information
Fifth Wheel Pin Box (Customer Supplied)
Hitch selection affects the towing and handling characteristics of your recreation vehicle.
There are many kinds of hitches available and assuring that you have the correct hitch
installed is critical to a safe towing.
Ask your dealer about the proper class and type of hitch you need to purchase for your
individual tow vehicle/RV combination. A fifth wheel requires a pin box hitch bolted
directly to the floor of the truck box through the frame.
The hitch class rating based on the capacity that hitch has for towing and a weight
classification. The weight classification is determined from the hitch’s weight carrying
capacity (the pin box weight on a fifth wheel). Before selecting a hitch, you must know your
GVWR and pin box rating. The rating of the hitch package purchased should be equal
to or greater than the RV’s GVWR and the pin box rating.

Using an oversized or undersized hitch can cause damage to the RV frame.
Starcraft cannot be responsible for the tow vehicle suspension system. The
final ball height after the tow vehicle/fifth wheel combination is completely
hooked up is a factor that must be considered. To avoid overloading your
trailer axles and minimize possible handling difficulties, your trailer should
be level when hooked to your tow vehicle. Do not overload your tow vehicle.
Equipment that sometimes gives autos, trucks and sport utility vehicles a softer ride can
accentuate swaying when pulling a RV; conversely, suspension that is too stiff will increase
vibration, bounce and accelerate wear of your tow vehicle and RV combination.
Starcraft cannot be responsible for the suspension system of any tow vehicle. There
are a variety of tow vehicle suspension systems available that will affect the pin box
height, stability and levelness of a hooked up RV. Make sure your dealer is aware of the
tow vehicle you are using so a compatible hookup is achieved.
Fifth wheel pin box
The fifth wheel factory installed pin box is not interchangeable. Maintain the proper pin box
weight on the hitch.
Fifth wheel pin box height
There is no recommended hitch height for fifth wheels; usually the fifth wheel pin box is
adjustable for variance in trucks and truck suspension systems.
Adjust the hitch assembly so the tow vehicle and the fifth wheel are essentially level. A high
hitch will transfer weight behind the axles and cause the vehicle to fishtail.
A low hitch will transfer additional weight to the hitch. Refer to the hitch manufacturer
instructions to adjust the weight distributing hitch to the proper height. If you have additional
questions, consult with your dealer. Make certain your Dealer is aware of the tow vehicle
you are using so a compatible hookup is achieved.
Fifth Wheel Hitching Procedure
The following procedure will help to assist you in securely hooking up your recreation
vehicle to your tow vehicle.
30
Section 3: Pre-Travel Information
1.
2.
Make sure the trailer wheels are blocked.
Make sure the hitch lever is in its open or “cocked” position unless it has been designed
to open automatically. Adjust the fifth-wheel travel trailer pin to the proper height.
Lower the tailgate, if applicable.
3. Back the truck so the hitch encircles the fifth-wheel travel trailer pin.
4. A gentle contact of the hitch saddle against the pin will cause the mechanism to close.
5. Secure the hitch lever as specified by the manufacturer.
6. Put the truck in drive (DO NOT press on the accelerator) and ‘bump’ the hitch to make
sure it is locked.
7. Be sure to raise the fifth-wheel landing gear all the way up.
8. Attach the breakaway switch cable to the tow vehicle.
9. Plug the wire harness/connector plug from the tow vehicle to the fifth wheel.
10. Remove the wheel chocks from the trailer wheels.
Fifth wheel landing gear can be operated manually. The fifth wheel landing gear must be
fully retracted before moving or towing the RV to prevent damage.

DO NOT USE THE FIFTH WHEEL LANDING GEAR TO SUPPORT
THE TOW VEHICLE WEIGHT. The fifth wheel landing gear is designed
to bear the front loaded weight of the RV only.
Wire Harness/Connector Plug
A 7-way wire harness/connector plug is wired into your trailer to connect electrical power
from the tow vehicle for travel. This supplies power to the RV brakes, tail lights, clearance
lights, turn signals, brake lights, etc. Wiring to operate your brakes must be the same size in
both the tow vehicle and RV (the RV brake wiring is 12-gauge wire).
When attaching wires to your tow vehicle, tape all the connections for moisture protection.

Section 3: Pre-Travel Information
Weighing Your Tow Vehicle & RV
When the RV is fully loaded it should be weighed. The actual weight of the vehicle, all
options, liquids, the hitch weight, and your personal cargo is important for you to know so
you do not exceed the GVWR. Two important factors when loading your RV are total weight
and balance.
It is imperative that you verify compliance within all applicable weight ratings. Overloading
your RV will void the Towable Limited Warranty and the warranties of many component
part manufacturers.
Periodically weigh your RV at a public scale to determine proper load distribution. To
obtain the side-to-side weights, there needs to be enough space on either side of the scale to
accommodate the RV being partially off the scale.
Keep in mind that individual scales will operate differently.
To weigh your tow vehicle and RV

Total weight of your tow vehicle and RV must not exceed the GCWR. Do not
assume that you can tow a RV that happens to be within the capacity of the
tow vehicle hitch. By doing so, you may exceed the total GCWR of your tow
vehicle and RV towing combination.
Your RV must be weighed fully loaded (with food, clothing, fuel, water, propane, supplies,
etc).
1.
Weigh the RV including the tongue weight, while detached from the tow vehicle. This
actual overall weight must be less than or equal to the GVWR for safe operation. If the
overall weight is greater than the GVWR, some contents must be removed until the
actual overall weight is less than or equal to GVWR.
2.
Hitch the RV to your tow vehicle. Weigh the RV and the tow vehicle to determine the
GCW. Make sure that this rating is less than or equal to the GCWR as specified by the
manufacturer of your tow vehicle. If this overall weight is greater than the GCWR,
some contents must be removed to bring the combination into compliance with the
listed ratings.
3.
Weigh the RV while attached to but excluding the tow vehicle. This will result in the
actual weight that is exerted on all of the RV tires. This weight may be subtracted from
the overall RV GVWR to determine the actual “tongue” weight.
4.
With the RV still attached to the tow vehicle, weigh each wheel position separately to
ensure each tire is not overloaded.
To determine the wheel position weight:
5. Pull the RV onto the scale so only one tire is on the scale. Record the weight. Your
RV must remain as level as possible on the scale (even though an axle or side is not
physically on the scale).
6.
To calculate the opposite side of the RV wheel position weight, subtract the first side’s
weight from the weight determined in step #3.
If there is a difference in the weights on one side of the vehicle as compared to weights on
32
Section 3: Pre-Travel Information
the other side, components (tires, wheels, brakes, springs, etc.) on the heavier side could be
overloaded, even though the total axle load is within the GAWR.
Once actual weights are obtained, compare them to the Weight Information Label weight
ratings to ensure you are below the posted minimum ratings.

It is important to redistribute the load to avoid component failure as well as to
improve the handling characteristics of the vehicle and not void the Towable
Limited Warranty.
See the Weight Terms and Loading Your RV sections for important weight information.
33
Section 3: Pre-Travel Information
Notes:
34
Section 4: Vehicle Operation
Towing

Your RV braking system is rated for operation at GVWR not GCWR.

Whenever possible, do not travel with waste in the holding tanks. Liquid or
debris in the holding tank(s) may affect the towing characteristics and may
result in property damage or personal injury.

The propane cylinder(s) should be turned off when traveling. Most refrigerators
will keep food cold or frozen for eight hours without running while you travel.
Your RV will travel safely and comfortably at highway speed limits. It will take longer than
a passenger automobile to reach that speed. Allow more time to go around vehicles you are
passing. Avoid situations that might require sudden momentum changes as the length of
the tow vehicle/RV combination affects your ability to quickly cut back into traffic. Swerves
and sharp turns, especially at high speeds, could result in loss of control of the tow vehicle/
RV.
Even though your RV is equipped with brakes designed for GVWR, proceed with caution
until you become accustomed to your RV’s stopping distance. Slow down in advance of
dips, bumps and railroad tracks to reduce the jolting to your tow vehicle/RV combination.
Proceed slowly and let the trailer tires pass over them before accelerating.
Adverse weather conditions and extremes in terrain may affect the performance and handling
of your tow vehicle. Do not operate the tow vehicle cruise control on icy or extremely wet
roads, winding roads, in heavy traffic or in any other traffic situation where a constant speed
cannot be maintained.
When descending a long hill, drop down into a lower gear or range. Avoid conditions
that require excessive and prolonged use of your brakes. Apply and release brakes at
short intervals to allow them to cool. The tow vehicle transmission and engine will help
in controlling downhill speed and can lengthen brake life. Use care when accelerating or
decelerating on a slippery surface. Abrupt speed changes can cause skidding and loss of
control.
Driving through water deep enough to wet the brakes may affect stopping distance or cause
the vehicle to pull to one side. Check the RV’s brake operation in a safe area to be sure they
have not been affected. Never operate any vehicle if a difference in braking efficiency is
noticeable.
Know the weight and size of your towing combination and observe any posted weight and
clearance limits. The added height of roof air conditioners, TV antennas or floodlights may
cause clearance problems around some tunnels, canopies and hanging signs.
When turning, the tires do not follow the path of your tow vehicle tires. The RV will make
35
Section 4: Vehicle Operation
a tighter turn than the tow vehicle. Compensate for this action by carefully pulling the tow
vehicle out into the intersection further than you would normally so that the RV clears the
curb. When making a turn, check the road clearance and be aware of others. Swerves and
sharp turns, especially at high speeds, could result in loss of control of the RV.
If your camping destination does not have pull through sites, pick a level site and back in
carefully. Check to ensure there are no obstacles in your path and that you have plenty of
vehicle clearance.
After the RV is in the desired location, set the tow vehicle parking brake. Block all RV
wheels securely with wheel chocks to prevent it from rolling.
Towing Behind Your RV

Towing items behind your travel trailer or fifth wheel, or overloading the rear,
will void the warranty and may result in: damage to the RV or add-on items,
towing difficulties, property damage and/or personal injury.
DO NOT tow anything behind your RV. The RV frame and bumper are not designed
for towing.
RV Brake System

Failure to maintain the brakes in proper working condition as specified in the
operator’s manual supplied by the axle OEM will cause property damage,
personal injury and possibly death. Consult with your dealer for assistance.
Electric brakes
The electric brakes are designed to work with the tow vehicle brakes. To maintain proper
braking performance, both the RV and tow vehicle brakes must be used together. Separate
use of the braking systems will cause accelerated wear and damage.
When your RV is new, it is impossible to adjust the brake shoes precisely. It takes
approximately 1,000 miles and/or 50 medium to heavy stops to “burnish” fit or “seat” the
shoes to the brake drum. After the initial break-in period your brake shoes must be adjusted
accurately for best performance and increased durability.
Braking system components include:
Tow vehicle battery
Brake controller
Wire harness/connector plug
Trailer battery
Breakaway switch
The tow vehicle battery is the primary source of power for your RV’s electric brake operation.
To ensure available power when needed, keep your tow vehicle battery and charging system
working properly.
36
Section 4: Vehicle Operation
Brake controller (customer supplied)
The brake controller should be installed in the tow vehicle to work in conjunction with the
RV electric brakes. Consult with your dealer or the brake controller OEM to decide what is
right for your towing combination.
Travel Trailer Breakaway Switch

NEVER use the breakaway switch and trailer brake system as a parking brake.
Doing so would create a high amp draw on the battery and converter. This can
cause damage to wiring, connectors and the breakaway switch.
The breakaway switch is a crucial part of the RV braking system. Located on the travel
trailer A-frame, this switch will apply the trailer brakes if the trailer becomes detached from
the tow vehicle. Attach the breakaway switch lanyard to a permanent part of the tow vehicle
(on a travel trailer do not attach it to the hitch ball or similar removable parts) when hitching
the trailer. If the RV becomes detached from the tow vehicle, the pull pin will be pulled from
the switch. This automatically causes the switch to “close” and activates the RV brakes.
A battery (customer supplied) must be installed to activate the breakaway switch.
Hydraulic brakes (if so equipped)
Your RV may be equipped with hydraulic surge brakes that operate automatically as the tow
vehicle’s brakes are applied. When speed is decreased and brakes are applied, the weight of
the trailer moving forward creates a reaction which causes the brake fluid inside the wheel
cylinder to activate the brake shoes against the drum.
As a result of this design, backing the RV uphill may activate the surge brake system making
it difficult to continue in reverse. To aid in backing up the RV;
1.
Prior to backing up a slope or through soft ground, pull the recreation vehicle forward
slightly to assure that the actuator socket is in the forward position.
2. Move the lever on the side of the actuator downward from the “towing position” along
the curved slot in the actuator frame to the “backup position.” The slot has a notch at the
bottom of its travel. Push the lever down to engage the locking notch.
3. The RV will now back up. This lever will slide into the correct position when pulling
forward.
It is extremely important to keep the master cylinder full at all times. An empty cylinder
invites moisture.
Disc Brakes (if so equipped)
If your RV is equipped with disc brakes, see the manufacturer’s owner’s manual for detailed
safety and maintenance information.
37
Section 4: Vehicle Operation
Entrance Door Step(s)
Make sure your entrance step is fully
extended before exiting the vehicle, and
retracted prior to towing.
Lubricating the step mechanism
Carefully clean the area around the pivot
points (the rivets involved in the motion of the
mechanism). Lubricate these pivot points with
an automotive grade, non-staining lubricant
every 30 to 60 days.

Familiarize yourself with the operating and safety instructions prior to using the leveling
system.

Failure to act in accordance with the following warnings may result in
serious personal injury or death!
Never lift the recreation vehicle completely off the ground. Lifting the
RV so the wheels are not touching the ground will create an unstable and
unsafe condition and may result in serious personal injury or death.
The leveling system is designed only for leveling the unit and should never
be used to provide service for any reason under the recreation vehicle
such as changing tires or servicing the system. It is not recommended
that you change a tire yourself.
Clear all jack landing locations of debris and obstructions. Locations
should also be free of depressions.
When parking the RV on extremely soft surfaces, utilize the load
distribution pads under each jack.
People and pets should be clear of the coach while operating the leveling
system.
Keep hands and other body parts clear of fluid leaks. Oil leaks may be
under high pressure and can cause serious skin penetrating injuries.

42
Section 4: Vehicle Operation
Emergency Towing

Never allow anyone to go under the recreation vehicle while it is being lifted
and/or being towed.
If your recreational vehicle needs to be towed, please contact an emergency road service
provider or a qualified service facility for assistance.
Wheel Lugs
After your first trip, check the wheel lug torque periodically for safety. Check the wheel
lugs after winter storage, after a wheel removal, before starting a trip or following extensive
braking. See Wheel Lug Torque Chart.
1.
Use the correct star pattern sequence to attach the recreation vehicle wheels
2.
Start all nuts by hand to prevent cross threading.
3.
Tighten the nuts in the sequence shown.
4.
Tighten the lug nuts equally in stages as indicated for your recreational vehicle wheels
Check and re-torque after the first 10, 25 and 50 miles (16, 40 and 80 kilometers).
Thereafter, check and maintain the torque according to the listed torque values
NOTE:The proper method of tightening wheel lug nuts is with a
properly calibrated torque wrench and socket, not with an impact
wrench or by hand. Do not use a 4-way lug wrench or any
other type of wrench that does not measure the actual
pressure applied to the lug nut.
Because of the importance of having proper torque on the wheel lug nuts, you should always
have the wheels mounted and properly torqued by a qualified technician using the proper
tools.
43
Section 4: Vehicle Operation

Check and tighten wheel lug nuts regularly to make sure they did not loosen
during travel. Wheel lug nuts must be applied and maintained at the proper
torque levels to prevent loose wheels, broken studs and possible separation of
the wheel(s) from your recreation vehicle. The lug nuts on the wheels of your
recreation vehicle must be maintained according to listed torque values (see
Wheel Lug Torque Chart.) Over-torqued and/or under-torqued wheels may
result in component failure.
Failure to maintain proper torque of the wheel lug nuts could lead to
separation of the tire and wheel while driving, possibly resulting in
property damage or personal injury.
Tires
Read and understand the following before taking your first trip in your RV
Routine maintenance on your recreation vehicle is important, but it cannot be overstated
how critical proper tire maintenance is to the safety, operation and durability of your RV.
Proper care and maintenance of your tires is essential to ensure your safety, as well as the
safety of others, as you travel. To insure your tires are operating safely, regular inspection
of your tires and checking tire pressures is absolutely mandatory.
44
Section 4: Vehicle Operation
Examine your tires frequently for unusual wear. Alignment, balance and bearing wear will
affect tire wear. Make sure to look for cracking, bulging, uneven tread wear, etc.

Tire wear should be checked frequently. Once a wear pattern becomes firmly
established in a tire it is difficult to stop, even if the underlying cause is
corrected.
Tire Pressure

Failure to follow proper inflation guidelines may result in tire failure, which,
under certain circumstances can cause loss of vehicle control or accidents that
may result in property damage, bodily injury or death.
You must follow the manufacturer’s inflation guidelines for maximum load capacity;
under-inflation is just as dangerous as over-inflation.
Tire pressure is the most important factor in the life and performance of your tires. Proper
inflation should be monitored closely. Failure to do so could result in the overheating of a
45
Section 4: Vehicle Operation
tire, which could result in a blowout. Inflation pressure should be as recommended by the
tire manufacturer or as the federal label for the recreation vehicle indicates.
When you are using your vehicle, check inflation pressure weekly to insure maximum tire
life and travel wear. Pressure should be checked when the tires are cold. During travel, tires
heat up and pressure increases. Do not bleed air from hot tires or your tires may then be
under-inflated.
NOTE: Cold tire inflation pressure is defined as a tire that has not
been used for three or more hours, or has been driven less than one
mile. Tire inflation pressure of a hot tire may show an increase of as
much as 6 psi over a cold tire.

It is recommended that the tire pressure be checked at the beginning of each
trip to obtain the maximum life of the tire. Follow the instructions listed on
the Federal Certification label, to determine the correct tire pressure. Underinflation may cause tire failures and swaying resulting in loss of control,
injury, death or property damage.

This recreational vehicle is equipped with special trailer (ST) tires that have a
maximum speed rating of 65 MPH (104 km/h). You should not exceed this
speed rating. Exceeding the tire speed rating may result in tire failure, which
could lead to an accident causing serious injury or death.
Changing A Tire

Do not use the stabilizer jacks to support the recreational vehicle while
under the vehicle or changing tires. The stabilizer jacks are designed as
a stabilizing system only. Do not use the stabilizer jacks as a jack or in
conjunction with a jack.
Never raise the recreational vehicle by placing the jack under the axle,
springs or any attachment parts.
Failure to comply with these guidelines could result in damage to the
vehicle and risk causing serious injury or death.
If you experience a flat tire on your recreation vehicle while driving, gradually decrease your
vehicle and move the recreation vehicle to a safe place on the side of the road.
46
Section 4: Vehicle Operation
1.
Keep the recreational vehicle attached to the tow vehicle. Block the tire on the opposite
side of the recreational vehicle from the tire you are changing.
2.
Loosen the wheel lug on the tire you are changing before jacking up the vehicle. DO
NOT remove the lug nuts; only loosen them for ease of removal when the tire is off
the ground.
3.
Locate the main frame rail of the trailer (it spans from front-to-back just inside the
tires).
4.
To raise the recreation vehicle, place the jack (hydraulic or screw) under the main frame
rail. It must be just ahead of the front tire or just behind the rear tire.
Tire Replacement

When replacing tires:
Be sure to use only tires that are rated for recreation vehicle use. The use
of passenger tires should be avoided. The load rating/range embossed on the
sidewall of passenger tires must be de-rated accordingly; they do not have
the same load capability as tires that are specifically identified for recreation
vehicle use. Failure to use tires that are properly matched to your recreation
vehicle could lead to premature tire wear or less than optimum trailer handling.
Be sure to replace it with a tire of the same size and specifications (refer
to the Federal Certification label.)
Any service or warranty coverage on tires is to be handled by the tire store representing the
brand installed on your RV. They are not to be returned to your dealer or Starcraft.
If you have questions regarding your tires, contact the tire manufacturer or Starcraft
Customer Service.
Spare Tire Carrier (If So Equipped)
If your recreation vehicle is equipped with a spare tire, it will either be mounted under the
unit (hoist) or on the rear bumper.
Hoist mount

DO NOT exceed the maximum load capacities of 100 lbs. for the hoist. DO
NOT use air driven guns or impact wrenches to lift the spare tire to the travel
position.
Depending on your model, the spare tire may have (side or bottom) brackets or it will be
mounted against the underside of the recreation vehicle (flush mount) to give it stability in
travel.
47
Section 4: Vehicle Operation
NOTE: If your spare tire is a flush mount application, it must make
contact with the underside of the recreation vehicle to insure maximum road clearance and stability in travel.
Bracket mount travel position
Hoist mount travel position
Raising and lowering the hoist
Typically the crank handle to raise and lower the tire will be located
(fastened to the sidewall) in a basement compartment of the recreation
vehicle. Insert the crank handle into the crank access port located
either in the center of the rear bumper, or in the sidewall of the RV.
Turn the crank handle to lower the tire, or to lift into the travel position.
Two “crisp breaks” must be heard and felt to insure the proper seating
of the tire for travel.
NOTE:If the manual crank access port is located in a slideout, the
slideout room must be in the travel position to allow the crank to
reach the mechanism used to raise or lower the tire.
Securing the spare tire
To secure the spare tire in the travel position, put the steel hoist lift support located on the
end of the cable through the rim of the tire. The hoist lift support clips need to seat inside
the center hole of the tire rim. The valve stem of the tire MUST be pointed up (toward the
bottom of the RV). Reverse this process to release the spare tire for use.

have sufficient power available before operating your slideout system.

Make sure the interior slideout room path and the slideout room itself is clear
of people and objects before operating. Keep away from the slide rails and
gear assembly when the room is in motion. They may pinch or catch on loose
clothing causing personal injury. Failure to follow these instructions could
result in serious injury or death.

These guidelines should be followed when using your slideout room:
The recreation vehicle must be level before operating the slideout room.
Water leaks and other problems could result if the slideout is operated
without leveling the RV.
Do not place excessive weight in the slideout room. It can cause the
slideout room to malfunction and cause damage to the slideout.
Do not over extend/retract the slide out room. Release the switch
immediately once the room has been fully extended/retracted. Over
extending/retracting the slide out room may result in damage to the stop
rod and bracket.
Additional support jacks are not needed under the slideout. Damage can
occur to your slideout room from improper use of aftermarket support
jacks.

Make sure the slideout is in the closed position prior to hooking the unit to
the tow vehicle.
Operating the slideout system:
The auxiliary battery (customer supplied) must be fully charged and connected.
If possible, the RV should be hooked up to 120-volt AC power so the converter
operates.
The RV must be level and the stabilizer jacks in the extended position.
Slideout switches are typically located inside the RV, either in the command center or
on the wall.
To extend the slideout, locate the slideout control switch and press the OUT section
of the switch; hold until the slideout room stops (travel time is approx. 25 seconds).
To retract the slideout, press the IN section of the slideout control switch and hold it
until the slideout is fully retracted.

Section 5: Slideout Systems
Operating the switch after the room is fully extended or retracted
may damage the switch and motor.
After the slideout is extended, verify that the corners of the black
rubber seal are set up correctly. The corners of this seal are cut
at a 45° angle. The top of the outside seal must overlap the side
of the seal to avoid the possibility of water penetration. On the
inside seal, the side seal should overlap the top.
Maintenance
Slideout overlap-outside

Do not work on your system unless the 12-volt DC (auxiliary battery, customer

Section 5: Slideout Systems
Trouble shooting the Inwall slideout system
Checking Fuses: The inwall slide requires a minimum 30 Amp fuse. Check the load
center for blown fuses and replace any if necessary. If the fuse blows immediately upon
replacement, there is a problem with the wiring to the inwall slide control box. A qualified
service person should be called to check and repair.
Obstructions: Check both inside and outside for possible obstructions. Also check for
smaller objects that may be wedged under the floor or in the sides of the unit. Remove any
obstructions before proceeding.
Error Codes: Refer to the error codes section for codes and instructions on how to locate
the inwall slide controller.
Low Voltage: The inwall slide controller can operate with as little as 8 volts; however with
lower voltages the amperage requirement is greater. Check the voltage at the controller and
if it is lower than 11 volts, it is recommended that the battery be placed on a charger until it
is fully charged. It may be possible to “jump” the RV battery temporarily to extend or retract
the room. Consult Customer Service before attempting to “jump” the auxiliary battery.
Only 1 Side Moving: The slide room has a separate motor to operate each side of the room.
If only 1 side of the room is moving, with another person’s assistance, press the switch to
extend or retract the room while pushing the non-moving side in the appropriate direction.
On larger rooms it may be necessary to have 2 or more people pushing the room.
Non-moving side moved manually: Try to push the non-moving side in and out. If a motor
shaft has broken then it will be possible to move that side of the room several inches by
hand. Larger rooms may require several people to push.
Debris in the rack: Check all 4 gear racks on the side of the room for debris.
Status LEDs lights: Locate the slide controller for the slideout in question. Check the
status LED lights while pressing the slideout direction switch (in both the extend and retract
mode).
Manual override for the inwall slideout
The slideout system comes with an “electronic” manual override. In event the slide out
does not extend or retract follow these steps to override the system which should allow the
slideout to be retracted.
NOTE: Fuses for the slideouts can be found in the load center and
may be designated as auxiliary or slideout motor.
1.
Locate the slideout system controllers. There should be one for each slideout on the
recreation vehicle. They are typically located on the forward wall or ceiling of a
basement compartment. In some models they may be behind a cargo lined panel.
2.
The malfunctioning controller should have a flashing red LED indicating a halt signal
fault (will flash 8 or 9 times).
3.
Press the “mode button” six times quickly, then press a seventh time and hold for
approximately 5 seconds.
60
Section 5: Slideout Systems
4.
The red and green LED’s will flash indicating you are in override mode. Release the
mode button.
5.
Using either a wall or command center panel switch, press and hold the switch toward
the word IN or RETRACT until the unit comes in completely. This will allow you to
get the recreation vehicle to a service center to have the slideout malfunction diagnosed.

Call your dealer or Customer Service if:
During the override procedure the motors are not synchronized. Visually
watch the room, and if one side is moving significantly slower than the
other (or not at all).
If the system stalls our before reaching end of stroke OR if the room does
not close and seal tightly.
Manually pushing in the slideout
1.
2.
Locate the slideout system controller
Unplug motor 1 and motor 2 connectors at the bottom of the slideout controller. This
releases the motor brakes for each motor.
3. The slideout room can now be manually pushed in. Larger rooms may require several
people to push or pull them.
4. Keep both sides of the slideout relatively even while pushing/pulling.
5. When the room is completely in, plug both motor connectors back into the control
module. This will apply the motor brakes for road travel.
Disengage motors, manually retract the room and travel lock
6.
7.
Locate and remove the motor retention screw which can be found near the top of each
vertical column (Fig. 3).
Bend back the wipe seal and visually locate the motor (Fig. 4).

11.
Pull the motor up until it disengages (about 1/2 inch).
Repeat this process for both sides of the slide room.
Physically push/ pull the room back into the opening; keep both sides relatively even.
The room must be travel locked to keep the room in place for road travel.

DO NOT MOVE THE RV UNLESS THE MOTORS ARE PLUGGED IN
TO THE CONTROLLER AND THERE IS BATTERY POWER TO THE
RV. THIS SETS THE BRAKES ON THE SLIDEOUTS TO PREVENT
THEM FROM MOVING DURING TRANSIT.
Error Codes
When an error code occurs during operation, the board LEDs lights will indicate where the
problem is. For motor specific faults the green LED will blink (1) time for motor #1 and (2)
times for motor #2. The red LED will blink 2 to 9 times depending on the error code. Error
codes are as follows:
2 times Battery capacity is low enough to drop below 6 volts while running.
3 times Battery (low) voltage is below 8 volts at the start of a cycle.
4 times Battery (high) voltage is greater than 18 volts.
5 times Excessive motor current (high amperage) also indicated by (1) side of the slide
continually stalling.
6 times Motor short circuit; motor or wiring to motor has shorted out.
8 times Hall signal not present; encoder not providing a signal; usually a wiring problem.
9 times Hall power short to ground; power to encoder has been shorted to ground;
usually a wiring problem.
The board will need to be reset after an error code. Energizing the extend / retract switch
will reset the board; energizing it a second time will return it to normal operation.

Norco Slideout
The Norco slideout system is a cable
driven slide out.
66
When the power switch is activated the cables guide the room in or out, while the AccuSlide mechanism evenly powers the corners keeping the room square.
Section 5: Slideout Systems
Motors and cables are behind the interior fascia board around the slideout opening.
Cables may stretch over time. Average stretch will be approximately 1/8” but it will not
affect the function and does not require adjustment.
Slideout runs off of the DC power in the RV.
Rubber wipes prevent debris from entering the unit and actuation guides the bulb seals
to close tightly.
Self locking motor freezes the room in any position of travel.
Slideout is supported by rollers or wear bars not the cables. Cables are used to keep the
slideout balanced on the rollers.
If the room will not activate, generally there is no 12V power to the drive motor. The motor
is equipped with a hex drive override shaft. This drive can be activated using an electric drill
and the flexible shaft provided with each unit (or use a ratchet to actuate the motor) to pull the
room in or out. If the motor is functioning,
check the room for obstructions.

GFCI Receptacle
W/Switch Modules
There is a ground fault current interrupter (GFCI) engineered into the electrical system. It is
designed to reduce the possible injury caused by electric shock. The GFCI will not protect
against short circuits or circuit overloads.
Test all GFCI receptacles monthly
Push in the GFCI “TEST” button. The GFCI “RESET” button should pop out indicating
the GFCI receptacle has been “tripped” and interrupted 120-volt power.
Push in the GFCI “RESET” button to restore 120-volt power.
Contact your independent dealer for assistance if the GFCI “RESET” button does not
restore 120-volt power and pops back out.
A “tripped” GFCI breaker indicates that abnormally high 120-volt current flow (a ground
fault) was detected. A fault condition can be caused by faulty wire insulation, wet wiring
inside an appliance, faulty electrical equipment connected to the circuit, etc. All ground
faults must be repaired before use of the recreation vehicle.
74
Section 6: Electrical Systems
Testing the Campsite Power Connection
The campsite 120-volt power receptacle(s) should always be tested for proper
functionality prior to plugging the recreation vehicle shore power cord into it.
Campsite 120-volt power receptacles can be tested using a digital multimeter or a dedicated
circuit analyzer. Dedicated circuit analyzers plug directly into the campsite power receptacle
and minimally test for open neutral, open ground, and correct polarity. Polarity indicators
can be purchased in most electrical and hardware stores.

Do not hook up the power cord to any receptacle until you have verified
proper polarity and grounding.
DO NOT plug the shore power cord into a campsite receptacle(s):
That has reverse polarity
With non-functioning ground circuits
That shows outward signs of heat damage.
Doing so may result in property damage or serious injury. Damage or
injury resulting from connection to malfunctioning or improperly wired power
sources is not covered by your recreation vehicle warranty.
DO NOT
Do not use any cheater plug, adapter or extension cord to reconfigure
incoming AC power or break the continuity of the circuit connected to
the grounding pin.
Do not connect the power cord into an outlet that is not grounded, or
adapt the power cord plug to connect it to a receptacle for which it is not
designed.
Do not remove the grounding pin to connect to a non-grounded receptacle.
Removal of the ground pin disables an important safety feature designed
to prevent shock and electrocution hazards.
Do not connect the power cord to an extension cord. Use of an improper
extension cord will cause overheating of the cord as well as potentially
causing premature failure of the AC equipment.
It is the responsibility of the owner of the electrical receptacle to ensure that
the receptacle is properly wired and grounded. Reverse polarity and/or
improper grounding of your RV can cause property damage or serious
personal injury.
Connecting the Power Cord

Plugging the shoreline power cord into an incorrectly wired power source
could damage the recreation vehicle electrical system and result in severe or
fatal injury.
75
Section 6: Electrical Systems
Always test the external power source (i.e., the campsite power receptacle or electrical
box) with a ground monitor before connecting your power cord to it. If the ground monitor
indicates ‘reverse polarity’ or an ‘open ground’ DO NOT connect the power cord.
To help prevent power surges from damaging the connected loads, please follow these
instructions when hooking up to the external power source:
1.
2.
Turn “off” the load center main 120-volt circuit breaker.
Carefully extend the entire length of the power cord (approximately 25’-35’) from the
electric cable hatch to the external power source.
3. Plug the power cord into the receptacle. Be sure all the power cord prongs are properly
plugged into the receptacle.
4. Return to your RV and turn “on” the load center main circuit breaker.
The shore line power cord should be unplugged when the recreation vehicle is left
unattended. If something would happen to the electrical system, this may help limit
potential damage.
When you are ready to leave, reverse the power cord connection process. Use care to prevent
damaging the power cord electrical connection pins when connecting or disconnecting the
shore line power cord. Grasp the plug to remove the power cord from the outlet; do not
unplug it by pulling on the cord.
Maintenance
Inspect the power cord for cuts, cracks and worn insulation. Have the power cord replaced
immediately if these symptoms are noticed.

The power cord must be fully extended when in use and not left coiled in the
electrical compartment or on the ground. If the power cord is left coiled, it
may potentially create enough heat to melt its protective casing.
Power Converter
The power converter converts 120-volt AC power to useable 12-volt DC power when the
shore power cord is connected to an external power source.
The converter has a built-in protective thermal breaker that will shut it down should
overheating occur. Overheating can be caused by operating the converter above its maximum
power output for an extended period of time, or by an obstruction to its ventilation air flow.
To reduce converter heat build keep unnecessary 12-volt lights and motors turned “off”.
Keep the converters cooling fins and fan clear of obstructions.
76
USE ONLY A DEEP CYCLE BATTERY FOR RV USE. Car batteries (CCA
rating) are not designed for RV applications. If doing a lot of dry camping use a
deep cycle battery rated in amp hours only (NO CCA rating).
If using multiple batteries they must be the same brand and type. Adding more
batteries will provide longer use of DC appliances when not on shore power but
may reduce charging efficiency.
The battery works in conjunction with the converter to supply DC power to the
RV. A battery is typically only necessary if you do a lot of dry camping or have
slideouts and/or a leveling system.
Section 6: Electrical Systems
Reverse polarity fuse provides protection for the converter when a battery is used.
If the battery is connected backwards to the fuse board this fuse would blow
preventing damage to the converter.
If your lights are dimming or flickering that usually indicates an overloaded
converter. Remove some of the load by turning off DC lights or appliances.
Fan is controlled by load. It will begin running at 3 to 6 amp DC draw. It increases
in speed with a higher load until 14 to 15 amps. Fan is at maximum speed and
stays there even with more load. If load drops below 6 amps DC, the fan shuts off.

It is important that the fluid level of any connected batteries be checked on a
regular basis. All batteries will “gas” and lose some fluid when continuously
connected to any charging source (does not apply to “gel-cell” batteries).
Before checking for converter output voltage, the battery cables must be disconnected at the
battery. Make sure the converter is plugged into an AC source (105-132 AC volts). Check
the converter output voltage at the battery with a voltmeter. Place the voltmeter probes on
the disconnected battery cables. If the voltage reads 13.6VDC with no load, the converter
is functioning properly.
If the converter output voltage at the battery reads in the 0.0VDC range, or the battery is not
charging, check for:
An open inline fuse in the battery wire
An open wire between the converter and the RV battery
Loose ground connection
Improper torques
If the converter fuses and AC voltage are good, but the converter output still reads zero volts,
the converter is not functioning properly.
Modes of Operation:
Absorption (Normal) Mode: 13.6VDC range. Batteries are being charged, just at a slower
rate. Converter will not work without AC input
Float Trickle Mode: To get your converter into this mode reduce the load on the system to
almost nothing but the battery. Let the system sit for approximately 44 hours.
Converter voltage will drop to 13.2VDC. If the converter sees any load during this period or
after it is in Float Mode it will revert back to Absorption (Normal) Mode. 13.6VDC.
Bulk Mode: Converter will not jump into the “Bulk Mode” unless the battery is below 50%
of charge, or approximately below 13.2VDC output voltage. There is no way to force it to
go into Bulk Mode.
Red LED indicates blown fuse.
Inspection and maintenance
If the 12-volt power converter is not working (auxiliary battery not being charged) check the
reverse polarity fuse(s) located on the end of the converter.
77
Section 6: Electrical Systems
There are no customer serviceable parts inside the converter case and the manufacturer’s
warranty will be void if the case has been removed. If you have further concerns contact
your dealer.
For detailed information on operation and safety, refer to the manufacturer’s owner’s
manual.
Converter w/charge wizard (if so equipped)
Some converters may be equipped with a charge wizard There
are (3) possible charging modes; NORMAL, BOOST and
STORAGE. The charge wizard will automatically select the
best mode to charge your battery. A green LED next to the
wizard mode button will indicate by flashes, which mode is
currently being used.
NORMAL MODE: Green LED flashes once per second;
battery is between 50% and 90% charged. Green LED will flash Wizard Button & Reverse
Protection Fuses
2-3 times per second; battery is 90% charged. Output voltage is
13.6VDC and the converter is safely completing the charge of
the battery.
BOOST MODE: Green LED is on solid. Output voltage is 14.4VDC to rapidly charge the
battery up to 90% of full charge.
STORAGE MODE: Green LED flashes every 6-8 seconds. Output voltage has been reduced
to 13.2VDC; the RV battery is fully charged and converter is maintaining the charge.
MANUAL MODE (Not recommended): The wizard mode button is used to override the
charge wizard. Refer to the converter owner’s manual for additional information.
REVERSE BATTERY PROTECTION: Reverse polarity fuse(s) provide protection for
the converter when a battery is used. If the battery is connected backwards to the fuse board
a fuse will blow preventing damage to the converter. Four easily accessible fuses are located
next to the wizard button. Replace with fuses of the same type and rating.
12-volt DC System
The majority of your recreation vehicle lighting is powered by 12-volt electricity. The 12volt DC system is composed of components that will operate when the following conditions
are met:
Power is supplied by the tow vehicle alternator when the engine is running and the
7-way trailer plug is connected. This powers the RV’s running lights, brake lights, turn
signals and brakes. In addition, the 7-way trailer plug provides a common ground and
a 12-volt charge line to charge the auxiliary battery.
The converter will supply interior 12-volt DC power when the power cord is plugged
into campground power. The converter will also charge the RV battery in most
situations. (Refer to Battery Disconnect)
The auxiliary battery powers many interior 12-volt components including the lighting
fixtures, water pump, 12-volt motors, 12-volt appliances, etc. It also powers the
breakaway switch.
12-volt Fuse Panel
The 12-volt fuse panel is labeled to indicate fuse sizes, positions and the components
powered. At the beginning of camping season, inspect all the 12-volt fuses and replace as
78
Section 6: Electrical Systems
needed. Fuses are located in the load center.
Replacing a fuse
Before replacing a fuse, always turn off the electrical components protected by it.
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Disconnect the shore power cord.
Turn “off” the inverter (if so equipped).
Disconnect the house or auxiliary batteries main negative battery cable.
Remove the fuse panel cover to check fuses.
Pull the fuse straight out of the fuse block. If the fuse is not blown, something else must
be causing the problem. Please contact your dealer for further assistance.
6. Insert a new fuse of the same specified voltage, amperage rating and type in the original
location. Never use a higher rated replacement fuse.
The fuse panel label should be kept permanently affixed to your recreation vehicle. Fuses
will not offer complete protection of the electrical system in the event of a power surge or
spike.

Replacement fuses must be of the same voltage, amperage rating and type.
Never use a higher rated replacement fuse; doing so may cause a fire by
overheating the RV wiring.
12-Volt DC Outlet
There may be one or more 12-volt DC power outlets in your recreation vehicle. When the
12-volt DC outlet is used as a power source for an electric appliance, make sure the appliance
operates on 12-volt DC power and that it consumes less than 60 watts (5 amps) of power.

Keep the protective dust cap on the 12-volt DC outlet when not in use to
prevent ingestion of foreign material and potential short circuit conditions.
79
Section 6: Electrical Systems
Auxiliary Battery (Customer Supplied)

Do not store anything inside the battery compartment(s) or near the batteries
that could touch the battery or battery cable terminals. Contact with the battery
or battery cable terminals could cause an electrical short circuit, discharge the
batteries, or start an electrical fire.
Keep sparks, cigarettes and flames away from the batteries as the hydrogen
gas they create may explode. Do not connect a booster battery or other power
source that outputs more than 14.2-volts DC to the motor home batteries. Use
adequate ventilation when charging or using batteries in an enclosed space.
Remove metal jewelry and always wear eye protection when working around
batteries.
Do not allow battery electrolyte (acid) to come into contact with skin, eyes,
fabric or painted surfaces. Electrolyte is a sulfuric acid solution that could
cause serious personal injury or property damage. If your hands, eyes, clothes
or the painted surface of your motor home are exposed to electrolyte, flush
the exposed area thoroughly with water. If electrolyte gets in your eyes,
immediately flush them thoroughly with water and get prompt medical
attention.
The combined 12-volt DC loads in your recreation vehicle become more than the converter
can produce. This demand can be met by using an auxiliary battery for a limited period of
time. The 12-volt system is designed for usage with a Group 27, deep cycle battery.
Dry camping
The auxiliary battery should be fully charged prior to dry camping. If the auxiliary battery is
not being recharged and power is being drawn from it, it will eventually discharge. A battery
will discharge at a faster rate as its energy level becomes depleted. Plan your electrical usage
accordingly. You can test the auxiliary battery voltage using a volt-ohm meter (customer
supplied).
A fully charged auxiliary battery will read 12.7 volts DC and 1.265 specific gravity at 80°F
(32°C). The auxiliary battery is considered discharged at 11.89 volts, and dead at 11.65
volts. If the voltage drops below those levels, irreversible damage can occur. Typically, a
deep cycle battery has an amp-hour rating of 75-100 amps.
If you run the furnace and refrigerator simultaneously, you will be using approximately
(12.0 + 3.0) 15.0 amps per hour. This does not include any 12-volt lights, or any other 12volt component. If the furnace and refrigerator in this example operated constantly, a 75
amp-hour battery would become fully discharged in 5 hours (75ah / 15a = 5h).
The auxiliary battery should be installed in parallel with the battery in your tow vehicle.
When the 7-way trailer plug is connected, both batteries power the RV. Do not allow it to
discharge your tow vehicle battery below the level required to start the engine. To prevent
this from occurring, disconnect the 7-way trailer plug or install a battery isolator. When the
tow vehicle engine is operating with the RV connected, the tow vehicle charging system will
charge both batteries.
80
Section 6: Electrical Systems
Replacement and maintenance
Some equipment in your RV will draw small amounts of current even when turned OFF. To
prevent the auxiliary battery from being discharged when your RV is not connected to shore
line power, disconnect the auxiliary battery negative cable at the battery. During storage, it is
important to check the voltage monthly and recharge the auxiliary battery as needed. If you
remove the auxiliary battery from your RV, store it in a dry, cool area per the manufacturer’s
instructions.
When it is time to replace the auxiliary battery, replace it with a Group 27 deep cycle
battery only. Do not reverse the positive and negative battery cables (doing so will blow the
reverse polarity fuse(s) that protect the converter).
For more information
Please contact the battery manufacturer for additional information on the auxiliary batteries.
Battery Isolator For Your Tow Vehicle
(Customer Supplied)
You may want to consider the installation of a battery isolator on your tow vehicle as a
convenience feature:
It receives current from the tow vehicle alternator and controls distribution of energy to
both the RV auxiliary battery and the tow vehicle battery.
It serves as a check valve to prevent energy from being drawn from your tow vehicle
chassis battery (so you can start your tow vehicle engine).
Your dealer can assist you with the selection, purchase and installation of this aftermarket
part.
Battery Disconnect Switch (If So Equipped)
The Battery Disconnect switch is typically located in
an enclosed exterior compartment. The style of the
disconnect switch may vary per model. The disconnect
switch does not shut off all power, but only shuts off the
12VDC power to the main 12V fuse panel, and the interior
of the vehicle. Batteries can still be trickle charged by the
converter, and there will still be power to the landing legs
on fifth wheels and certain other devices. Rotating Dial

120-volt Circuit Breakers
The 120-volt AC circuit breakers located inside the load center protect all 120-volt wiring
and components from circuit overloads and short circuits. Should a circuit overload or short
circuit occur the circuit breaker protecting the affected circuit will “trip” preventing the flow
of electricity through that circuit. If a circuit breaker trips, shut “off” the appliance on that circuit (i.e., power converter etc.)
and allow the circuit breaker to cool down for a brief period of time. After it cools down,
reset the circuit breaker by moving its lever “off” and then back to the “on” position. If the
circuit breaker re-trips or frequently trips, contact your dealer to have the electrical problem
diagnosed and repaired.
A circuit breaker identification label is permanently attached to the inside surface of the 120volt Load Center. 120-volt circuit breakers are located in the sub-panels inside the cabinet

free standing solar panel. In most models, the solar panel kit
is a customer purchased and installed option. The solar plug
location will vary by model, but may be located either on the
sidewall, on the A-frame of the vehicle or in the outside utility
center. There are capped off wires located in the area of the
battery. These wires are the battery charging wires. Once
these wires are properly connected to your battery, you will
then be able to plug the solar panel into the charging port.
When the system is connected properly, the solar panel will
supply power to the battery, the battery will supply power to
the converter, and the converter will supply power to all the 12V
systems as needed.

Replacing Light Bulbs
Before replacing a bulb, be sure the light is off. Do not touch the glass part of the new bulb
with your bare fingers. The skin oil left on the glass will evaporate when the bulb gets hot,
the vapor will condense on the reflector and it will dim the surface.
Replacement light bulbs must be of the type, voltage and wattage listed on the lamp fixture.
Use of incorrectly sized bulbs can overload lam circuits and may create a fire hazard by
overheating the fixture.

Exhaust Gas Fumes

Avoid inhaling exhaust gases as they contain carbon monoxide, which is
a potentially toxic gas that is colorless and odorless.
If you are in a recreation vehicle with either a nearby tow vehicle engine
running or the generator (if so equipped) running there is a potential for
exhaust fumes to filter back into the recreation vehicle.
To avoid breathing exhaust gases, follow these precautions:
Always shut OFF the tow vehicle engine, generator engine (if applicable), etc., while
refueling.
Do not run the tow vehicle engine, generator engine (if applicable), etc., in confined
areas, such as a closed garage, any longer than needed to move your RV in or out of
the area.
Windows should be closed while driving or running the generator (if so equipped) to
avoid drawing dangerous exhaust gases into the RV.
If you suspect that exhaust fumes are entering the RV have the cause determined and
corrected as soon as possible.
The best protection against carbon monoxide entry into the RV is a properly maintained
ventilation system and an active carbon monoxide detector. To allow for proper operation
of the RV ventilation system, keep the ventilation inlet grill(s) clear of snow, leaves or other
obstructions at all times.
See the Occupant Safety section of this manual for additional information on carbon
monoxide safety.
Propane Gas System
Propane or LP (liquefied petroleum) gas is an efficient form of energy when proper handling
and safety precautions are observed. The propane system in your recreation vehicle
furnishes the fuel for cooking, heating, hot water and can be an alternative energy source
for refrigeration
Propane is heavier than air; and tends to flow to lower areas and will sometimes pocket in
these low areas, such as the floor. Your recreation vehicle is equipped with a propane alarm
(refer to the Safety Precaution sections, Combination Carbon Monoxide (CO)/Propane
Alarm.)

Propane cylinders should not be placed or stored inside RV. LP-gas cylinders
are equipped with safety devices that relieve pressure by discharging gas into
the atmosphere.
The propane fuel system is comprised of numerous components such as the propane
container, hoses, the propane gas regulator, piping and copper tubing to each appliance.
Although your recreation vehicle has been carefully tested at the factory, and by your selling
89
Section 7: Fuel & Propane System
dealer for leakage, travel vibrations can loosen fittings. Have the propane system checked at
all connections soon after the purchase of your recreation vehicle, and after the initial filling
of the propane tanks.
Continued periodic checks of the propane system at 5,000 miles of travel (or at least once
a year), by a qualified propane service representative as part of your normal maintenance is
recommended. Hand tighten the LP gas system valves only, do not use a wrench or pliers as
over tightening may damage the valve seals and cause them to leak.
NOTE: All propane lines have been checked with air pressure at
the time of manufacture. Dealers are required to recheck and adjust
pressure before retail delivery.
Propane Leak Test
Leaks may be found easily with a soapy water solution. Do not use a solution containing
ammonia or chlorine when locating leaks. These products are corrosive to copper gas lines
and brass fittings, which could result in deterioration of the copper and brass components.
Apply the soapy solution to the outside of the gas piping fittings. If a leak is present, the soapy
solution will “bubble” at the leak point. If a leak is indicated, shut off the propane system
valve(s) and contact your dealer or qualified propane service representative immediately.

Never use an open flame to test for a propane leak. Do not check for leaks
using products that contain ammonia or chlorine; these products can cause
cracks to form on the metal tubing and brass fittings
Propane Safety Procedure
Propane is a colorless and odorless gas that, in the
liquefied state, resembles water. An odorant (usually a
sulfur compound) is added as a warning agent. If you
smell propane within the vehicle, quickly and carefully
perform the procedure listed on the propane system label.
This label has been placed in the vehicle near the range,
for models equipped with a propane systemWhen propane
container is low, occasionally there may be a concentration
of an onion or garlic-like odor, which can be mistaken for
a propane gas leak. After the propane container has been
refueled, the odor will usually disappear. If not, turn off
the valve(s) and have the propane system inspected by
your dealer or qualified propane service representative.

Section 7: Fuel & Propane System
Propane Gas Container
Propane “container” is a general all inclusive term used to describe a vessel that is used for
storage and delivery of propane gas. The most common of these are:
DOT (Department of Transportation) cylinders are transportable and are commonly used on
recreation vehicles. The capacity of DOT propane cylinders is expressed in pounds. DOT
propane cylinders are required to be removed from the RV for filling and must be filled by
weight by a qualified propane facility. DOT Propane cylinders are equipped with an OPD
(over fill protection device) designed to reduce the potential of overfilling. DOT propane
cylinders are also equipped with an ACME service valve that is for connection of the TYPE
1 ACME pigtail hose assembly to the RV two-stage regulator.
The TYPE 1 ACME pigtail hose assembly is a wrenchless, right hand threaded connector
that features a thermally sensitive sleeve and excess flow device. Max output is 200,000
BTU/hr. It is used to connect propane cylinders to regulators, hoses and other fittings. It is
not for use on gas grills and other low pressure devices. DOT cylinders equipped with an
OPD and ACME type 1 service valve are identified by the triangular service valve knob.
DOT cylinders are typically marked with “top” or an arrow to indicate the correct orientation
of the cylinder(s). Do not mount, store or transport any cylinder other than the in proper
position indicated.
Be sure to securely re-install DOT cylinder(s) to the recreation vehicle after they have been
removed for filling or replacement. Always close the service valve and install a dust cap or
plug when transporting or storing disconnected containers whether full or empty.
ASME tanks are permanently mounted to the RV and are commonly used on RV motor
homes. The capacity of ASME tanks is expressed in gallons. ASME tanks are filled while
the tank is tank is attached to the motor home by a qualified propane facility. ASME tanks
are equipped with an automatic stop fill valve designed to reduce the potential of overfilling.
ASME propane tanks are also equipped with a P.O.L. service valve that is for connection of
the supply hose with a left hand threaded brass P.O.L. fitting from the tank service valve to
the two-stage regulator. Not for use on gas grills and other low pressure devices.

DOT propane cylinders must be transported and stored in an upright position
so the pressure relief device will function properly. Laying a DOT propane
cylinder on its side may potentially create a very dangerous situation.
NOTE: Tanks are to be installed, fueled and maintained in accordance to State and Local codes, rules, regulations or laws.
Propane is a true gas compressed into a liquid form. As the fuel is released from the container,
it changes to vapor which is then used for the operation of the appliances. Propane will not
run through the appliances in the liquid state.
91
Section 7: Fuel & Propane System
Propane expands 1½ percent for every ten degrees of increase in temperature. It is imperative
to leave sufficient space inside the container to allow for natural expansion of gas during
warmer weather.
The main shut off valve must be kept closed at all times unless you are using the propane
system or filling the propane cylinder. When the cylinder is disconnected from the hose,
install the valve cover that is attached to the container.
Close the propane cylinder main shut off valve by hand
tightening only. Use of tools creates a potential to over
tighten the valve (damaging the interior seals on the
cylinder valve seat). If this type of damage occurs, the
cylinder will not close properly.
This propane label should be kept permanently affixed to
your RV.
Servicing or filling
Have the recreation vehicle checked for leaks at the
connections on the propane system soon after the purchase
and the initial filling of each propane cylinder. When you
have a new cylinder filled for the first time, make sure your
“Use propane only” label (Canada

only)
Otherwise, an improper mixture of gas and air will make (Label appearance may not be exact)
it impossible to light your propane appliances.

Before entering a propane or fuel service station make sure all pilot lights are
extinguished. Shut off gas to all appliances by closing the propane gas main
shut off valve. Always shut OFF any engine before refueling. Do not smoke
and do not operate other ignition sources while refueling
No one should be inside and only the qualified propane service
technician should be near the RV while the propane tank is being
filled. The new propane container must be carefully purged
for best performance and must NEVER BE OVERFILLED.
This “shut off for re-fueling” label should be kept permanently
affixed to your RV.


The pigtale hose must be installed to avoid tension or pulling stress at either
end of the hose. Keep the pigtail hose away from sharp edges of the cylinder
collar, rigid corners, walls, doors or other compartment structures including
the cover.

LP gas container overfill

If you suspect your propane container has been overfilled, contact your
independent Jayco dealer or a qualified propane technician for assistance
immediately. Do not attempt to service a propane container overfill yourself.
Never allow your propane tank to be filled above the maximum safe
level as indicated by the fixed liquid level gauge. Do not allow the
visible gauge to be used for filling. Overfilling the propane container
above the liquid capacity indicated on the container, could allow
liquid propane to enter the system that is designed for vapor only
creating a hazardous condition.

Maintenance
Propane gas is normally non-corrosive - you need not
worry about the inside of your container. However,
the outside should be kept free from rust by a periodic
coat of paint in a light reflective color. Rust, scratches
and/or dents can affect the safety of the cylinder.
Inspect the cylinder at regular intervals.
Double Cylinder
If there is a problem, have it evaluated by a qualified technician and discard it. DOT requires
that a visual inspection be made prior to each filling.
Any cylinder that has been exposed to fire, leaks or seems damaged should not be refilled.
Do not attempt to repair any containers, container valves, regulator or appliances by yourself.
Use only trained certified propane gas service technicians to perform repairs.
Propane cylinder recertification
DOT cylinders may only be used for 12 years after their manufacture date (the number of
years for certification may vary in your area). After that, the cylinders must be “recertified”
which provides another five years of use.
The cylinders can be recertified every five years thereafter. Federal DOT (Department of
Transportation) regulations require periodic inspections and re-qualifications of the propane
cylinders. DO NOT USE damaged or rusted containers.
Verify with your local propane dealer that all required inspections and certifications have
been completed on the propane cylinder within the correct time period before refilling the
cylinder.
Have the LP system checked for leakage each time a cylinder is refilled or after any part of
the propane system has been disconnected.
Hoses, Pipes, Tubes & Fittings
The hoses, pipes, tubes and fittings used in your propane system are designed to withstand
pressures exceeding those of the propane system. However, because environment and time
can both contribute to the deterioration of these components, they must be inspected for
wear at regular intervals.
Be sure to inspect the hose before each season and when having the tank refilled. Look for
signs of deterioration such as cracks or loss of flexibility. When replacing the hose or other
propane components, make sure to always replace them with components of the same type
and rating (check with your dealer).
Fittings are used to connect the various system components to each other. The P.O.L. fitting
at the end of the propane supply hose is made of brass so that pipe sealants are not necessary
to prevent leaking.
It also has a left-handed thread, which means that it is turned clockwise to remove, and
counter-clockwise to tighten. The P.O.L. fitting has been designed to help restrict the flow
of LP gas in the event of a regulator failure or hose malfunction.

valve and wait at least fifteen (15) minutes before trying again. Refer to the regulator
manufacturer’s operator manual.
4. Listen carefully - a “hissing” sound longer than one second may indicate a propane
leak. If you feel there may be a leak present, close the valve and contact your dealer or
qualified propane technician for repair assistance.
Replace all protective covers and caps on the propane system after filling. Make sure the

Propane Regulator

Propane regulators must always be installed with the regulator vent facing
downward. Regulators that are not located in baggage compartments have
been equipped with a protective cover. Make sure the regulator vent faces
downward and (if applicable) the cover is in place to minimize vent blockage
that could result in excessive gas pressure causing fire or explosion.
Single stage regulator
Some models are equipped with a single stage regulator.
96
Section 7: Fuel & Propane System
Two stage regulator
The two-stage regulator has the only moving components in the propane system. Its sole
function is to reduce the pressure from the propane containers to a safe and consistent low
operating pressure. The first stage reduces the container pressure to 10-13 lbs. The second
stage reduces the 10-13 lbs. of pressure further to an operating pressure of 11” W.C. (water
column) or 6.35 oz. of outlet pressure to your appliances.
The second stage is adjustable and will need to be adjusted by your dealer or qualified
propane service technician for optimum performance (this adjustment should always be
made with a properly calibrated manometer).
If the pressure is too high, it affects performance and safety; if the pressure is too low, your
appliances will not operate correctly.
If your recreation vehicle is equipped with the “automatic” two-stage regulator, with both
cylinders full of propane, turn the lever on the regulator towards the cylinder you wish to
use first. This will now be the “supply” cylinder and the other the “reserve.” Slowly open
both cylinder valves. The indicator on top of the regulator will turn bright green. When the
cylinder becomes empty, the indicator will change to bright orange. Now turn the regulator
lever to the side of the “reserve” cylinder and the green signal should return. You may now
remove the empty cylinder to have it refilled without interrupting the flow from the full
bottle. After filling the cylinder, connect the pigtail hose and slowly open the bottle valve.
Using The Propane System
Use the following steps for propane operation:
1.
2.
Close ALL burner valves, controls and pilot light valves.
Open the main valve in the propane tank slowly to avoid a fast rush of propane vapor
through the excess flow valve causing propane “freeze-up.” Should you experience
propane “freeze-up,” close the main valve and wait 15 minutes before trying again.
3. Listen carefully as propane begins to flow. If a hissing noise is heard for more than one
or two seconds, close the main valve and contact your recreation vehicle dealer to have
the propane system tested.
4. Light the appliances as needed and directed in the appropriate appliance manufacturer’s
owner manual located in the Warranty Packet.
Keep the propane container valves closed at all times unless you are using the propane gas
system or are having the propane container filled.
Make sure that you read and fully understand ALL safety requirements for handling
and operation of the propane system.
The propane system must be handled with care. If you have any questions or concerns,
consult with your dealer and/or the specific appliance manufacturer.
If you have double cylinders on your recreation vehicle, use only one at a time. Otherwise,
the propane supply will be drawn equally from both cylinders until the supply has been
totally exhausted. Using one cylinder until it is empty, then using the second cylinder will
allow you to fill the empty cylinder at your convenience without running totally out of
propane.

Section 7: Fuel & Propane System
Calculating Propane Gas Usage
Most RV gas appliances are operated intermittently, and each has a different BTU rating.
You will need to consider this when planning your propane supply and consumption. Unless
there is heavy use of hot water, the water heater consumption of propane is minimal. During
cool temperature or high wind conditions, furnace consumption can be extremely high.
To calculate your propane supply, take the BTU ratings for your propane appliances and
divide that into the BTU availability. Each gallon of propane gas (3.785 liters) produces
about 91,500 BTU’s (96,528 kilojoules) of heat energy.

Section 8: Plumbing System
There are two different water systems in your recreation vehicle:
The fresh water system consists of the fresh water holding tank, faucets and connections,
water pump, outside shower assembly (if so equipped), water heater, tub/shower, and
water purification system (if so equipped).
The waste water system consists of the waste water and sewage holding tank(s), drains
and toilet.
Plumbing System Maintenance
Check all fittings, pressure and waste, for leaks before each trip or before vehicle
storage as part of your normal maintenance:
Inspect all faucets, the water purification system (optional) and sink connections
(including drain baskets or filters).
Inspect connections at the water pump and water heater.
At the end of every trip, you should drain any unused water from the fresh water system.
All water contains contaminant and mineral particles that can cause fresh water system
odors. Untreated well water is a major source of water system odors.
The fresh water (or potable water) system needs periodic sanitization and winterization
to take care of all the components within the plumbing system and help discourage the
growth of bacteria and other organisms that can contaminate the water supply.
Typically, there are labels affixed to the exterior of the recreation vehicle sidewall that
indicate the locations of the water system drains and fills. Be aware some drain valves may
be located inside the vehicle (once the exterior label is found, go inside to find the drain
corresponding location).
Monitor Panel
Depending on your model, the monitor panel may be located
on the Command Center panel, on an interior wall, or on
the exterior utility center. It allows you to monitor the fresh
water, grey water, black water and auxiliary battery levels.
These functions are controlled using the monitor panel tact
switches. The monitor panel operates on 12-volt DC power
supplied by either the converter or auxiliary battery. No
power is drawn from the battery unless a switch is pushed
or turned ON. Fuses for the monitor panel are located in the
load center. Refer to the manufacturer’s operators manual for
additional information.
Monitor Panel
NOTE: If your RV has secondary black or gray tanks, there may
also be an additional tank monitor. located elsewhere in your RV. It is
typically labeled as a convenience center.
Operation
Press only one tact switch at a time. As you push either the FRESH, BLK GREY1 or GREY2
switch, one or more LED lights will illuminate (from left to right) indicating the content
101
Section 8: Plumbing System
level for that tank. When pushing the “BATT”
switch, the LED lights illuminate from left (lowest)
to right (highest) to indicate the estimated auxiliary
battery condition.
NOTE:When using shore
power all 4 LEDs will light.
If disconnected from shore
power, 3 LEDs will light to
indicate a full charge (4th
LED may blink).
The LEDs corresponding to the letters C,G,F,L on
the panel indicate the following:
●●
C = Charge at 12.7 volts
●●
G= Good at 12.1 volts
●●
F= Fair at 11.6 volts
●●
L = Low at 6.0 volts.
Command Center
(Monitor panel appearance and components may
vary)
The water pump switch (if so equipped) may be located on the monitor panel, the utility
center or both. When the water pump switch is ON (it will light up), the water pump will
run until it reaches 45 lbs. of pressure. It will recycle when pressure drops. Turn the switch
OFF when the water pump is not being used.
The water heater switch(s) (if so equipped) are located on the monitor panel, and will light
up when turned on. The “LP GAS” water heater switch (12V) enables propane operation of
the water heater, and the “ELECTRIC switch (120V) enables electric operation of the water
heater. Normally both switches should be turned on to provide the fastest hot water recovery
time. The water heater can be operated in electric only or gas only modes by pressing each
switch independently. If the RV is equipped with a tankless water heater, there will be only
an LP Gas switch on the command center panel.
DSI FLT - Direct Spark Ignition Fault (if so equipped): This light located between the
water heater switches will indicate a problem with the LP portion of the water heater. When
the LP GAS switch is turned on, the light will blink quickly 3 times and the water heater will
ignite. The light will then remain off. If the light comes on and stays on, it indicates the gas
side of the water heater has not fired and there is a problem with the igniter.
Fresh Water System
All water contains contaminant and mineral particles that can cause fresh water system
odors. Untreated well water is a major source of water system odors. The fresh water
(potable water) system needs periodic sanitization and winterization to take care of all the
components in the plumbing system to discourage the growth of bacteria and other organisms
that can contaminate the water supply.
102
Section 8: Plumbing System

Never travel with full fresh, black or grey water holding tanks.
DO NOT drink water deemed microbiologically unsafe or of unknown
quality.
Fresh Water Holding Tank
There may be several ways to fill the fresh water tank depending on the model. For details
of each method, refer to the Fresh Water Connections or the Utility Center (if so equipped)
sections. There are plastic overflow tubes in the fresh water holding tank which allow water
to flow out of the water tank (see City Water Fill). Occasionally, you may see water coming
from the overflow tubes when the fresh water holding tank is filled. This is normal and can
be a result of the recreation vehicle being parked on an incline, or the motion caused by
starting or stopping during travel.

Do not cap, block or modify the fresh water tank overflow tubes in any
way. Enough water pressure can build up during the filling process to
damage the plumbing system if the overflow tubes are obstructed.
Be careful not to overfill the fresh water holding tank. It can pressurize
the tank, causing leakage and water damage and void the warranty. DO
NOT leave the tank unattended while filling.
12-Volt Water Pump & Switch
When you want to use water in your recreation
vehicle and it is not hooked up to city water,
you will need sufficient 12-volt DC power to
run the water pump.
Once activated, the water (demand) pump will
self-prime, and provide water. The pump is
designed for intermittent use only. Using
the pump continuously or with high pressure
will shorten the life of the pump and is not
covered in your warranty. The water pump
is engineered with a check valve to prevent water
from back flowing into the fresh water supply tank.
Water pump
Periodically check the in-line water pump strainer for accumulated debris. To clean, shut off
the water pump, unscrew the clear cap, remove the re-useable metal strainer and clear any
debris, then reinstall.
For additional information on the care and operation of the pump, read the safety and
operating information in the pump manufacturer’s owner’s manual.
Water Pump Switch (if so equipped):
Most (red) water pump switches illuminate when the water pump is activated. Models

Section 8: Plumbing System
equipped with a black rocker switch (located near the sink) will not. Typically the pump
switch is located on the monitor panel or the utility center. When the switch is ON the pump
runs until 45 lbs. of pressure has been achieved. For models with the red switch, the pump
light will stay on The water pump recycles when pressure drops. Some cycling may occur
depending on the volume of water being released. Turn the water pump switch OFF when
it is not in use.
NOTE:If there are multiple pump switches, the pump must be
turned off from the same switch used to turn it on.
The water pump switch should be in the OFF position when the RV is left unattended
for any amount of time. If something would happen to the water system, this may
help limit water damage to a smaller area.
Water Pressure Regulator (customer
Supplied)
Excessive pressure from the water supply source may be encountered in some parks,
especially in mountain regions when using the fresh water inlet or black tank flush. Water
pressure regulators are available to protect your recreation vehicles plumbing system against
such high pressure.

Water Heater

Hydrogen gas may result if you have not used the water heater for two
weeks or more. HYDROGEN GAS IS EXTREMELY FLAMMABLE.
To reduce the risk of injury under these conditions, open the hot water
faucet for several minutes at the kitchen sink before you use any electrical
appliance connected to the hot water system. If hydrogen is present, you
may hear what sounds like air escaping through the pipe as the water
begins to flow. Hydrogen gas may be present even after water has been
drained from the water heater tank. Open the faucet at the sink and allow
the system to vent for five to ten minutes. Do not smoke or have any
open flame near the open faucet while venting. On DSI water heater
models, make sure the switch is OFF.
Do not alter the operation or change the design/construction of your
water heater. For your safety, only factory authorized parts should be
used on your water heater. Accessories marketed for recreation vehicles,
such as an “add-on” electric heating elements, are not recommended by
the manufacturer. Such items are not approved to be installed and could
create an unsafe condition and will void all warranties
If you smell propane gas then STOP! and follow the procedures listed
in the Propane System Section before attempting to operate the water
heater.
Your motor home may be equipped with either a tank (storage) water heater or tankless water
heater. The following is an overview of both systems. For detailed operating instructions,
refer to the manufacturer’s owner’s manual.
Gas/Electric DSI Tank (storage) water heater system (if so equipped)
Read the safety and operating information in the manufacturer’s user guide before attempting
to activate the water heater. Make sure the water heater is filled with water before use; even
momentary operation of the water heater without water in it may result in damage to the
tank and/or controls. Always open both the hot and cold water faucets when filling the fresh
water tank to allow air pockets to be forced out of the water heater.
The water heater manufacturer has preset the sensing limit to maintain the water temperature
when the water heater is activated. The thermostat on your water heater is not adjustable and
is designed to maintain a water temperature of 130°F (54°C).
The water heater does not have a pilot. It is equipped with an ignition device which
automatically lights the burner. Do not try to light the burner by hand.
Operating instructions
1. Turn OFF all electric power to the water heater.
2. Turn OFF the propane supply.
3. Wait five minutes for the propane to clear the area. If you smell propane STOP!
Follow the safety instructions listed in the manufacturer’s owner’s manual. If you do
not smell propane, go to the next step.

6.
Turn ON the propane supply.
Turn ON electrical power to the water heater.
Turn the switch to the “ON” position. If the burner does not light, the system will
automatically attempt two more tries for ignition before lock-out occurs. NOTE: Each
ignition cycle will have a 15 second purge before spark cycle if system is a three try
system.
7. If lock-out occurs before the main burner lights, turn the water heater control switch
to OFF, wait five seconds and turn the switch to the ON position. This will restart the
ignition cycle.
8. The first start-up of the heater may require several ignition cycles before all the air is
purged form the propane lines.
If the burner will not come on, the following items should be checked before calling a
service person:
1. See if the switch is turned OFF.
2. Make sure the propane supply to the water heater is not empty or turned OFF.
3. Check to see if the reset button on the water heater ECO is tripped.
Water heater bypass (If So Equipped)
Your motor home may be equipped with a water heater bypass. This three-valve system is
located at either the water heater, or on the utility center panel depending on your model.
For detailed information see the Water Heater Bypass section
Odor from the hot water system
Many water supplies contain sufficient amounts of sulfur to produce an odor, often called
“sulfur water.” Sulfur water can be caused by a chemical action or by bacteria. Generally,
sulfur water is not harmful, only unpleasant to smell. Refer to the water heater manufacturer’s
owner’s manual for details on eliminating the odor from sulfur water. Odor from sulfur
water is not a service problem.

Do not replace anode rod or any other component with an accessory part that
is not authorized by the water heater manufacturer, such as an “add-on electric
heating element. Such items are not approved to be installed and could create
an unsafe condition and will void all warranties
Anode rod protection
The tank in the water heater is protected by
a magnesium or aluminum anode to prolong
the life of the tank by absorbing the corrosive
action of hot water. Under normal use, the
anode rod will deteriorate and because of
this, the water heater OEM recommends the
anode rod be replaced yearly. Water with high
Anode rod replacement chart
levels of iron and/or sulfate will increase the rate of
deterioration; therefore, more frequent replacements may be required.
If an anode rod is mostly eaten away, replace it with a new one. The water heater manufacturer
recommends replacement of the anode rod when consumption or weight loss is greater than
75 percent.
113
Section 8: Plumbing System
Operating the water heater without the proper anode rod protection will decrease tank life
and will void the tank manufacturer’s warranty on the tank. To extend the anode life, drain
the water from the water heater tank whenever the motor home is not being used. Avoid any
extended time of non-use with water in the tank.
To prevent a water leak when replacing the anode rod, a pipe thread sealant approved for
potable water (such as Teflon tape) must be applied to the threads of the anode rod. Proper
application of a thread sealant will not interfere with the anode’s function.
High altitude deration
Operation of the water heater at high altitudes may require derating. If the water heater is
not properly derated, lack of sufficient oxygen for combustion may produce improper burner
operation. Pilot outage caused by burner lift-off or sooting from a yellow burner may occur,
indicating the possibility of carbon monoxide. You may also notice a lack of efficiency in
heating the water because of incomplete combustion of the burner at these higher altitudes.
Consult with the local propane company, your dealer or the water heater manufacturer for
proper derating of the water heater. Change out of the orifice (derating) should be done by
the dealer or a qualified service agency.
NOTE: It is important that once the motor home has returned to
lower elevation (below 4500 feet) any high altitude deration or other
adjustments be reversed for proper operation of the water heater.
Pressure & temperature relief valve

Do not place a valve between the pressure and temperature (P&T) valve and
the tank. Do not remove or plug the relief valve under any circumstances.
The temperature and pressure relief valve is designed to open if the temperature of the water
within the heater reaches 120° F, or if the water pressure in the heater reaches 150 pounds.
When this pressure is reached, the pressure relief valve will open and water will drip from
the valve.
This “weeping” or dripping will continue until the pressure is reduced to below 150 pounds,
and the valve closes. This condition is normal and does not indicate a defective relief valve.
One way to reduce the frequency of this occurrence is to maintain an air pocket at the top
of the water heater tank. This air pocket will form in the tank by design; however, it will be
reduced over time by the everyday use of your water heater. To replenish this air pocket:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
114
Turn off the water heater.
Turn off the cold water supply line.
Open a faucet in the motor home.
Pull out the handle of the pressure relief (P&T) valve and allow water to flow from the
valve until it stops.
Release the handle on the P&T valve - it should snap closed.
Section 8: Plumbing System
Close the faucet and turn on the cold water supply. As the tank fills, the air pocket will
develop. Repeat this procedure as often as needed to reduce the frequency of the weeping
P&T valve.
Maintenance
Do not allow the burner to burn with a yellow flame, or continue to operate the water heater
with an improper burner flame.
Periodically, inspect the water heater vent for soot. Soot is a sign of incomplete combustion
and must be corrected before operating the water heater. This is your visual warning that the
water heater is operating in an unsafe manner. If soot is present, immediately shut the unit
down and contact your dealer or a qualified service agency.
Periodically inspect the vent for obstructions. Do not terminate the vent on your water
heater inside of add-on rooms, screen porches or patios. Doing so will result in products of
combustion being vented into the rooms or occupied areas.
Draining and winterization:
If the recreation vehicle is to be stored over the winter months, the water heater must be
drained to prevent damage from freezing. Damage to the water heater caused by freezing
is not warrantable. It is recommended the water heater be drained and bypassed during
the winterization process, particularly if introducing RV antifreeze into the plumbing
system. Never drain the water heater when it is HOT or UNDER PRESSURE.
To drain the water heater:
1. Turn off electrical power to the water heater either at the switch from the electrical
element of at the breaker.
2. Shut off the propane supply to the water heater.
3. Turn off the water pump.
4. Open both hot and cold water faucets.
5. Remove the anode rod from the tank.
For detailed information see the Winterizing the Plumbing System and Water Heater Bypass
sections of this manual.
Tankless water heater (If So Equipped)
Your motor home may be equipped with a tankless water heater. The tankless water heater
uses less LP gas than storage tank model water heaters since it only uses energy when hot
water is demanded. There is no pilot light to burn when no hot water is needed. The tankless
water heater supplies an unlimited supply of hot water on demand (once lines are purged of
standing water). As hot water is used, the cold water enters the heater. A water flow sensor
detects the flowing water and automatically ignites the burner. Water circulates through the
heat exchanger and is heated to the set temperature. When the tap is closed, the unit shuts
down.
The tankless water heater does not require an anode rod to prevent corrosion, or a by-pass
valve for winterizing. It is not affected by high altitudes.
The output temperature of the water depends on the temperature of the inlet water AND the
amount of hot water that is drawn. If the inlet water temperature is over 65ºF the tankless
water heater will generate water in the range of 105°F to 120°F (on low flame) depending on
the water flow selected by the user.
Operating Tips
Purge air out of ALL hot and cold water lines.
115
Section 8: Plumbing System
Open the water heater door and turn the power switch “ON”.
Set GMC (gas modulator dial) to appropriate setting.
Normal weather – set dial to the middle area.
Extreme cold weather – set dial to the extreme right (large flame).
Extreme hot weather – set dial to the extreme left (small flame).
Open hot water faucet to a medium water flow. It may take a few seconds for the water
to travel from the water heater to the faucet.
To reduce temperature:
Turn GMC dial “counter-clockwise”.
Increase hot water flow.
Gradually add cold water.
To increase temperature:
Turn GMC dial “clockwise”. NOTE: Use caution not to increase the dial too
much which could cause the hot water temperature to rise to the point the water
heater “limits’ and turns OFF the flame (flame shut off is approximately 131° F).
Reduce hot water flow.
For detailed operating information refer to the manufacturer’s owner’s manual.
Winterization
Freezing of the water heater and its plumbing components will result in severe damage not
covered by warranty. For this reason it is advisable to follow the recommendation(s) below
if the unit is to be stored in a freezing environment or for long periods of time. At the start
of the winter season or before traveling to a location where freezing conditions are likely,
the unit must be winterized.
The very small amount of water present in the heat exchanger DOES NOT require the
installation of a bypass kit. Refer to the “Winterization section” for details.

SCALDING INJURY-EXPLOSION
Valve is not serviceable; if defective it must be replaced.
Tampering with valve will result in scalding injury. Do not place a plug
or reducing coupling on outlet part of valve. If you use a discharge line
allow complete drainage for both valve and line.
Tampering with valve will void the warranty.
Pressure - Temperature Relief Valve
THIS VALVE IS A SAFETY COMPONENT AND MUST NOT BE REMOVED
FOR ANY REASON OTHER THAN REPLACEMENT.
THE PRESSURE RELIEF VALVE SHOULD ONLY BE REPLACED BY A
QUALIFIED SERVICE TECHNICIAN.
Maintenance
Inspect your water heater monthly and have it serviced at least once a year by the
manufacturer’s recommended service technician. If you have further questions contact your
RV dealer, the manufacturer, or Jayco Customer Service.
For more information, refer to the manufacturer’s user guide.

water heater with RV antifreeze. The 3-Valve Bypass is typically located in close proximity
to the water heater.
Factory installed
3-valve water heater bypass
NOTE: In the 3-valve bypass diagram, valve D is the fresh water
tank shutoff. Valve E is used to introduce RV antifreeze into the lines
when winterizing the system and has a clear hose attached to it. See
Winterizing the Plumbing System. Valves D & E are typically
located near the water pump, which may be under a dinette bench,
kitchen island, or bed.
Water heater switches (if so equipped):
The water heater switches are typically located on the monitor panel. Refer to the Monitor
Panel section for function details.
Outside Shower (If So Equipped)
A handheld shower assembly with both hot and cold water may be included for use outside
of your recreation vehicle.
1. Be sure the water heater is ON and had sufficient time to heat the water.
2. Open the outside shower compartment door.
3. If dry camping, be sure the 12-volt water pump is ON.
4. Remove the handheld shower from its holder.
5. Turn ON the hot and cold faucet knobs, and adjust the water temperature as desired.
6. To activate the handheld shower turn ON the sprayer head attachment (some models).
To turn off the water, always close the hot/cold control (faucet) knobs. The lever on the
shower head will not completely stop the flow of water; this is intentional to allow for
draining. After the water has been allowed to drain from the shower head, return it to the
outside shower compartment. Any remaining water in the shower hose will drip or run out;
117
Section 8: Plumbing System
this is not a leak but performs as intended. If you are dry camping, turn the water pump
OFF.
Turning off the water with the shower head lever can also create a condition where the hot
and cold water will mix through the outside shower faucet, thereby reducing the temperature
of the hot water. It can appear as though the hot water heater is not working properly.
NOTE: The shower head may be removed from the hose so that
it will drain faster. If you remove the shower head, be sure to reassemble it prior to storage.
NOTE: When putting the shower assembly back into the storage
compartment, make sure the hose is not pinched or the shower head
is positioned in a way it can be damaged.
Faucets
The bathroom, kitchen and outside shower faucets operate much the same way as the faucets
in your home. Make sure there is sufficient water available and the 12-volt water pump is
turned ON before operating.
NOTE:There may be air in the water plumbing lines which needs to
be bled out before a steady stream of water comes from the faucet.
Bathroom Tub / Shower
The shower faucet includes a vacuum breaker for the shower. There are two purposes for
this breaker:
To prevent siphoning water through the hose from another fixture.
To prevent water from being retained in the hose.
The showerhead DOES NOT have a complete shut-off valve (the complete shut-off is at the
faucet). The showerhead may drip slightly in the OFF position after use; this is normal and
does not indicate a leak or defect.
There may be air in the plumbing lines that will need to be bled out before a steady stream
of water comes from the faucet.
The bathing facilities in your recreation vehicle function similar to those in your home. Keep
the water heater and holding tank capacities in mind when using the fresh water system. The
used water will drain through the plumbing pipes into the grey water holding tank.
Be sure the water heater is ON and had sufficient time to heat the water.
If dry camping, be sure your 12-volt water pump is ON.
Unlike your home, the recreation vehicle does not contain a water pressure balance valve. If
118
Section 8: Plumbing System
someone is using the shower, it is recommended that the fresh water system NOT BE USED
until they are finished.
Maintenance
Refer the manufacturer’s user guide or label instructions for detailed cleaning information.
The tub/shower walls are made of ABS plastic material. Use a mild detergent soap and warm
water to clean. Do not use gritty or abrasive particle soaps or scouring compound to clean
ABS plastic. Avoid using “Citrus” or biodegradable cleaners which contain “D-Limonene.”
They will damage plastic materials. Contact your dealer for repair or replacement.

Water temperatures over 125°F (49°C) can cause severe burns instantly
therefore, be careful when using hot water. Always test the water temperature
before showering or washing.
Hardware & Sink or Shower Fixtures
Use mild dish soap and water to clean these fixtures. Do not use harsh chemicals or sprays.
A mild solution of vinegar and water works well to remove hard water spots and stains from
the sink or shower fixtures.
Draining The Fresh Water System
Water tanks may be drained through a valve located near the tank. A recreation vehicle
with a demand pressure pump system will have low-point drains attached to the water lines
(normally located near the water tank).
These low-point drains will release water in the supply lines by opening the valves and all
faucets. The water heater has its own drain plug. To drain the permanent fresh water holding
tank and supply lines:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
Turn the water heater power OFF (turn off the electric & LP GAS
switches).
Open all faucets, including the outside shower faucet.
Open the “fresh tank drain” valve. All fresh water tanks can be drained
by one of two types of drain valves. A white plastic drain is attached Exterior fresh
to the exterior wall or a valve located inside the motor home adjacent water drain
to the water tank (turn 45° to open or close).
Open the “low point drains” by turning, then pulling the handles
up. They are installed at the lowest point of the water lines. A label
is placed on the outside of the RV to indicate where the drains are
located. The drains will typically need to be opened from inside the
RV. Once the label is found on the exterior sidewall, the drains will
be found at a corresponding location in the interior.
Low point drains
Drain the sink by removing the drain cap.
Turn ON the water pump and allow it to run as needed.
If the RV water heater has bypass valves: Set them to the BYPASS configuration (refer
to the Water Heater Bypass section). Operate the toilet flush lever until water stops flowing.
Relieve the water pressure using the P&T valve BEFORE removing the water heater
drain plug. If there is any water pressure present the water will spray out of the opening
119
Section 8: Plumbing System
when the drain plug is removed.
When you are finished draining the fresh water system, reverse these steps and dump the
grey and black water holding tanks at an appropriate facility or according to local public
codes.
It is normal for some liquid to remain in the fresh water tank after drainage procedure.
Sanitizing with a utility center or 6 in 1
system
NOTE:Refer to the Utility Center section for details on valves and
water heater bypass valves.
When to sanitize:
When your recreation vehicle is new.
At the beginning and end of each season.
When the water system becomes contaminated or every three months of use.
Sanitizing Solution
Prepare a chlorine solution using 1/4 cup of household bleach (sodium hypochlorite solution)
to one gallon (3.785 liters) of water in a container. Prepare one gallon of solution for every
15 gallons of tank capacity. This will result in a residual chlorine concentration of 50 ppm
in the water system.
If a 100-ppm concentration is required, use ½ cup of household bleach with one gallon of
water to prepare the chlorine solution. One gallon of the solution should be used for each 15
gallons of tank capacity.
NOTE:Fresh water tank sizes vary by model; contact your dealer or
customer service for your specific tank size.
Sanitizing with the Utility Center (if so equipped)
1. Level the recreation vehicle and drain the fresh water system (see Draining the Fresh
Water System).
2. Turn water heater power OFF (storage style- electric and LP gas switches; for tankless
water heater turn power switch OFF at the command center).
3. Set the bypass valves to BYPASS (refer to Utility Center Bypass Valve).
4. Close the low point drain valves and the fresh water tank drain valve.
5. Remove the filter from the canister type water purifier (if so equipped). Sanitizer should
never be allowed into a water filter. Refer to Water Purification.
6. Bypass the water heater (both tank and tankless). Set the bypass valves at the utility
center to BYPASS (middle valve vertical, end valves horizontal). Water heater power
should be OFF, gas valve to water heater should be OFF also.

Winterizing with a utility center or 6 in 1
System
Preparing your recreation vehicle for colder weather or storage is very important for most
states and Canada. Failure to prepare your RV may cause water supply lines and the water
heater to freeze. The RV should be winterized at the end of the camping season or when it
will be exposed to temperatures that will fall at or below 32°F (0°C). Repairs due to freezing
are not covered by warranty.
Your RV will be equipped with either a utility center or a 6 in 1 system. The winterization
process is different for each system, and may also vary slightly between models due to
different plumbing configurations.
If you chose to perform the winterization process yourself, read and understand the following
information before starting. Contact customer service or your dealer for questions about this
process. It may be easier to winterize the RV with another person to assist you.
Your RV may contain either a tank type (storage) water heater or a tankless style. Make sure
you know which type you have in your RV. They are winterized differently and allowing
antifreeze in the wrong type will damage it.
124
Section 8: Plumbing System
NOTE: The tank type (storage) water heater must be
drained to prevent damage from freezing. It is recommended the tank type (storage) water heater be drained
and bypassed during the winterization process particularly
if introducing RV antifreeze into the plumbing system. Do
not drain the water heater while it is hot or under pressure! Antifreeze should be kept out of a tank type (storage)
water heater.
A tankless type water heater requires antifreeze in the water heater lines. Do NOT
bypass tankless water heater lines.
The preferred method to winterize your recreation vehicle is by using RV antifreeze in
the plumbing system.

Automotive antifreeze (ethylene glycol) and windshield washer antifreeze
(methanol) are poisonous. Never use these products in your fresh water
system. These products are harmful and may be fatal if swallowed
Never apply air pressure to the water system with any of the valves in
the closed position. Air pressure applied to a closed valve, faucet or low
point drain could potentially damage the seals and cause water leaks. If
you have questions, consult with your RV dealer.

If the recreation vehicle is going to be stored in a non-temperature controlled
environment with a risk of temperatures reaching 32°F (0°C) or lower, the air
pressure method is not adequate, winterizing with RV antifreeze must be used
in the plumbing system. Repairs due to freezing are not covered under the
terms of the Towable Limited Warranty.
Winterizing with the Utility Center (if so equipped)
Winterizing with Antifreeze
1. Level the RV and drain the fresh water plumbing system. See
Draining the Fresh Water System section.
2. Water heater power should be OFF (for both the tank and
tankless types). Gas valve on the tank type water heater
should be turned OFF (located outside the RV).
Storage (tank type) water heater: Drain and bypass the
water heater. Bypass valves for the water heater are located at
the utility center. Low point drains will drain the water heater.
Do not drain the water when hot or under pressure.

Close all low point drain valves and the fresh water tank drain valve. This is required
to create a siphon in the water lines.
Set the water valves at the utility center panel to SANITIZE/WINTERIZE LINES
position.
A short hose is supplied with your RV that attaches to the city water connection inlet
on the utility center. The other end of the hose should be put into a container of RV
antifreeze. Winterizing will require approximately 2 gallons of RV antifreeze. To assist
the siphoning process, put the container on a flat surface approximately two feet above
ground level.
Turn the water pump ON. If the water pump fails to self-prime, temporarily open
the low point drains. Close the low point drains as soon as the water pump primes
(RV antifreeze will be drawn out of the container). Siphoning will not begin until
a fixture is opened inside the RV.
Open the hot water line on all the faucets (kitchen, lavatory, shower and outside shower)
until RV antifreeze begins to flow continuously.
Close the faucet hot water lines and repeat with the cold water lines on all the faucets.
Flush the toilet several times until you see antifreeze in the bowl.
When you are finished adding RV antifreeze
1. Remove the short hose from the container of RV antifreeze, and from the Fresh Water
Connection inlet. Replace the cap on the Fresh Water Connection inlet.
2. Pour one cup of non-toxic RV antifreeze into any/all drain P-traps. (bathtub sinks &
toilet)
3. To prevent staining, wipe the RV antifreeze out of the sinks, shower (or tub) and toilet
using a soft, dry cloth.
If needed, contact your RV dealer for assistance.

This empties the bowl and puts antifreeze into
the flush valve and leaves the valve open.
De-winterize the macerator toilet:
After antifreeze has been purged from water lines,
press either flush button until clean water appears in the bowl.
Black/Grey Water System
Water from the sinks and shower flows into the gray water (or waste water) holding tank.
Water from the toilet will flow into the sewage (or black water) holding tank (see Black/Grey
Water Holding Tanks).
Drain pipes With P-Trap (If So Equipped):
The drain pipes may be equipped with a “P-trap” installed to help prevent odors from
escaping into the RV. During travel, water from the P-traps may spill and permit odors into
the RV. By adding water and using a RV approved deodorizing agent you will dissolve
the contents faster and will keep the drain lines and tanks clean and free flowing. These
chemicals are available at an RV supply store or your dealer.
Drain pipes With Dry Sealing Valve (If So Equipped):
Your RV may be equipped with a dry sealing valve that prevents the escape of odors from
your waste system and eliminates the need for P-traps. Should the RV drain piping system
become clogged and a mechanical cleanout tool is used to open the drain pipe, it is important
that the dry valve be removed before passing the cleanout tool through the piping. Passing a
131
Section 8: Plumbing System
mechanical cleanout tool through the waterless valve may cause damage to the internal seal
that may potentially allow sewer gases to escape into the RV interior. A label has been placed
near the location of the waste valve that reads as follows:
REMOVE WATERLESS TRAP BEFORE
USING MECHANICAL DRAIN – CLEANING DEVICES
Sewer Hose Storage:
Depending on your RV model, the sewer drain hose may be stored in an exterior compartment
marked “Sewer Hose” or it may be located in the hollow square tube bumper. The bumper
has removable plastic end caps, and the hose slides inside the hollow bumper.
Vents:
Another important part of this system is the vent pipes and vents that release air from the
grey and black water holding tanks. On most models the exterior vent cap is attached to the
roof and must be kept clear of obstructions to perform as intended. On some models, the vent
pipe may be part of the drainage system referred
to as a “wet vent” (water flows downward as air
flows upward in the same pipe).
Some models are equipped with a side vent
system. On these models this label will be next
to the termination valve. This label should not
be removed from your recreation vehicle.
Black/Grey Water Holding Tanks
Dump the gray and black water holding tanks before traveling to avoid carrying unnecessary
weight. The weight of the holding tank contents is not calculated into the RV cargo carrying
capacity (this extra weight would reduce your available cargo capacity). Traveling with full
holding tank(s) could possibly cause you to exceed the individual tire ratings and/or the RV
GAWR or RV GVWR. Potential damage to suspension components, such as springs, tires
and axles, could result.

Never travel with full black or grey water holding tanks. This not only wastes
your fuel but depending on the location of the tank(s), it can affect your tow
vehicle handling characteristics.
Traveling with the tanks full can affect your fuel consumption, and depending on the location
of the tanks, can affect your vehicle handling characteristics. If you are dry camping and
cannot immediately empty your holding tanks, reduce your vehicle speed until you reach a
dumping station.
When connected to the sewer drain line at a campground, keep the “black tank drain” valve
closed until the holding tank is at least ¾ full. This will provide sufficient water to assist in
complete draining of the black water holding tank. Repeat as needed.
132
Section 8: Plumbing System

Never leave the black tank drain in the open position continuously when
connected to the campground sewer system. Leaving the drain open will
allow the liquid to drain out increasing the potential for a blockage in the
tank. Keeping the drain in the closed position will prevent debris from
accumulating in the tank.
Do not add automotive antifreeze or caustic chemicals, such as laundry
detergents, into the holding tanks. Although these products may have a
deodorizing effect, they may damage the plastic and rubber parts of the
plumbing system or the components
Before using the recreation vehicle, or after dumping the grey and black water holding tanks,
always add the proper amount of deodorant to the black water tank to prevent odors and
help break down holding tank contents (unless winterizing). Follow the deodorant bottle or
package instructions. Driving to a disposal site will normally loosen any accumulated waste
debris or solids from the sides of the holding tanks.
Black & Grey Tank Drains
There are labels on the exterior of the recreation vehicle indicating the location of the grey
and black tank drains (also called dump valves). Always drain the black water holding tank
first so the following grey tank waste water can help rinse any solids or debris from the dump
outlet and sewer hose.
1.
2.
To make drainage easier, level the RV.
Remove the sewer hose housing dust cap, and
attach the sewer hose (customer supplied).
3. Place the end of the sewer hose into the
approved dump station.
4. Open the black tank dump valve (depending on
your model the valve may be located under the
Black/Grey tank drain & valves
RV, or on the utility center). Close the dump
valve when the black water holding tank is
empty.
5. Open the grey tank dump valve (depending on your model the valve will be located
under the RV or on the utility center). Close the dump valve when the grey holding tank
is emptied.
6. Remove, clean and store the sewer hose.
7. Close the sewer hose housing dust cap.
You can locate many dump stations throughout the United States and Canada in Woodall’s,
Rand McNally Camp Guide, Good Sam Camp Guide, KOA Kampgrounds Camp Guide and
various other publications. Some fuel stations also have dump stations.
Please contact your RV dealer for assistance in the purchase and installation of a sewer hose
or sewer hose extension (if needed).

Sewage (black) tank preparation:

It is important to add enough water to prevent solid waste buildup. Follow the
directions listed below and in the manufacturer’s operator manual.
1.
2.
Release one to two quarts (1 or 2 liters) of water into the toilet bowl.
Follow the directions on your (RV approved) toilet chemical bottle (customer supplied),
by placing the recommended quantity of holding tank chemical into the toilet bowl.
3. Flush the toilet and allow at least two gallons (8 liters) of water to flow into the holding
tank.
Waste (grey) holding tank preparation:
No special preparation is required, however, placing a small quantity of chemicals into this
tank, such as baking soda or an approved RV chemical, will reduce odors from food particles
in the system.
Cleaning & Maintenance:
The toilet should be cleaned regularly for maximum sanitation and operational efficiency.
Use only RV approved chemicals. Do not use chlorine (undiluted) or caustic chemicals,
such as laundry bleach or drain opening types, in the toilet system. These products damage
the seals in toilets and dump valves.
Tank Heaters (If So Equipped)
Your recreation vehicle may be equipped with heaters for the fresh, gray, black water tanks
and the water lines or drain lines. The larger tank heaters are 120VAC and attach directly to
the tanks. Water line or drain line heaters are smaller and operate on +12VDC and will be
attached to the water lines or drain lines. These heaters will prevent water in the tanks and
lines from freezing down to -11°F (-24°C) (contingent on recreation vehicle setup).
The tank heaters are thermostat controlled and will cycle on and off while they are operating.
The +12VDC heaters stay on constantly. The thermostat controlled tank heaters turn ON at
44°F (7°C) and will turn OFF at 64°F (18°C). All of the heaters are controlled by a single
ON/OFF switch.
Typically this red tank heater ON/OFF switch is located on the command center panel or in
the bathroom. The switch lights up red when it is turned ON and controls the heater circuit.
IMPORTANT: In order for the 120VAC tank heaters to be in operation, the
recreation vehicle MUST be hooked up to shore power or under generator power. If
the recreation vehicle is not operating on shore power or generator power, only the
+12VDC heaters will operate. This can result in the tanks freezing. The red light on
the command center tank switch does not necessarily indicate that ALL heaters are
operating; it is a warning that the heater circuit is ON.
The tank heater switch should be turned ON:
When liquid is present in the holding tank\s and the outside temperature approaches
and maintains freezing conditions 35°F (2°C) or colder.
The tank heater switch should be turned OFF:
When there is NO liquid present (tanks are empty).
When dumping the black and gray holding tanks and the drain pipes.
When fresh water tank and supply lines are empty or being drained for storage.
134
Section 8: Plumbing System
When the recreation vehicle is connected to city sewer and the gate valves are open.
NOTE: Free draining is never recommended, especially in cold weather use.
When ambient temperatures rise and remain above freezing.
No maintenance on the heaters is required, only a periodic inspection for loose wires,
damage, etc. For additional detailed information, refer to the tank heater manufacturer’s
user guide.
Toilet
The toilet is efficient and easy to operate. Prior to using the sanitation system, it is strongly
recommended to flush the toilet several times to release sufficient water into the holding
tank. Generally, more water is required only when flushing solids.

It is important to prevent solid waste buildup. Follow the toilet
manufacturer’s recommended instructions each time after emptying the
black water holding tank.
To prevent help toilet blockage, always use RV grade single-ply toilet
paper. Do not flush paper towels, diapers, sanitary napkins or other
foreign objects down the toilet.
Do not use chlorine (undiluted) or caustic chemicals, such as laundry
bleach or drain opening types, in the toilet system. These products
damage the seals in toilets and dump valves.
If there is not a sufficient amount of water used during flushing, the waste materials may not
evacuate properly from the drain line to the tank. Clogged tanks and pipes could eventually
occur. For added convenience and better sanitation system performance, it is advisable to
always have four to six inches (10 - 15 cm) of water in the toilet. It is important to add
enough water to prevent solid waste buildup. The following guidelines will help to prevent
solid waste buildup.
Sewage (black) tank preparation
1. Release one to two quarts (1 or 2 liters) of water into the toilet bowl.
2. Follow the directions on your (approved RV) toilet chemical bottle (customer supplied),
by placing the recommended quantity of holding tank chemical into the toilet bowl.
3. Flush the toilet and allow at least two gallons (8 liters) of water to flow into the holding
tank.
Cleaning & Maintenance
The toilet should be cleaned regularly for maximum sanitation and operational efficiency.
For detailed information refer to the manufacturer’s operator manual.

Section 9: Heating & Cooling
Air Conditioner
The air conditioning system is controlled by a thermostat. Cooled air enters the RV through
the grill. Make sure you have sufficient power available before operating the air conditioner.
Do not operate the air conditioner without the return air filter. Operating the system without
the filter allows the lint and dirt that is normally stopped by the filter to accumulate on
the cooling coil of the air conditioner. This also will lead to a loss of air volume, possible
equipment damage and an expensive cleaning process.
Roof Mount (If So Equipped)
A special foam gasket is placed between the roof material and the subframe of the air
conditioner to guard against water leakage. The air conditioner is subjected to wind pressures
along with motor vibration during normal operation. Inspect the mounting bolts for tightness
to ensure there is no leakage or looseness at least annually. Re-tighten bolts when they are
loose. DO NOT over tighten these bolts as it may damage this gasket. The air conditioner
gasket is a wearable part that eventually will need to be replaced. To gain access to the bolts,
remove the filtered panel cover on central air systems or the entire air box on non-central
air conditioners. Consult the manufacturer’s operators manual or your RV dealer for more
information.
Wall Mount (If So Equipped)
Keep the air inlet grill and cabinet clean by wiping with a cloth dampened with warm water
and a mild detergent.
For additional information refer to the manufacturer’s owner’s manual included in your
warranty packet.
Power Roof Vent (If So Equipped)
The 12-volt DC attic fan (or powered roof vent) allows fresh air to circulate through the
recreation vehicle. Do not leave the attic fan open when the recreation vehicle is stored or
unattended for long periods.
High winds, other unusual conditions or obstructions may prevent the dome from closing;
the resulting leakage could cause non-warrantable damage.
To use your fan most effectively, close all vents and slightly open a window on a shaded
side of your recreation vehicle. You are directing the air flow by
opening a window.
For additional safety and operating information refer to the
manufacturer’s owner’s manual.
Control pad (if so equipped)
The attic fan may be controlled by a control pad. The dome can be
raised or lowered with the UP/DOWN buttons, and the speed of
the fan is controlled by the ARROW buttons. It is also equipped
with a rain sensor that will close the vent automatically when it
rains. The rain sensor can be turned on/off by holding the DOWN
button for 3 seconds.

Ceiling Fan (If So Equipped)

Be careful to avoid placing any object in the path of the ceiling fan blades!
Turn the ceiling fan ON/OFF using an interior wall switch. The 3-speed ceiling fan is
controlled by the pull chain switch. The sequence of operation for the pull chain switch is:
OFF, High, Medium, Low, OFF. The slide switch (located on the fan) controls the direction
of operation (down for forward, up for reverse). Stop the fan first before reversing the
operation direction!
NOTE: During cooler temperatures, set your fan settings to “low,”
and set the fan to turn clockwise to pull warm air from the ceiling
back towards the floor. In the summer, the fan should turn counterclockwise to keep air moving.
For additional information refer to the manufacturer’s owner’s manual.
Ducting & Return Air
All heat discharges, registers and return air grills must be free and clear of obstructions.
This includes all closeable registers that are intended to reduce airflow, do not shut it off
completely.
Furnace
The furnace installed in your recreation vehicle is controlled by a 12-volt DC thermostat.
Depending on your model, there may be up to two thermostats enabling you to control the
temperature to your comfort level.
The furnace requires both 12-volt power and propane gas for full operation. Make sure you
have sufficient power available before operating your furnace.
If you have any questions contact your dealer or Customer Service. A qualified RV technician
should perform all furnace maintenance at least once a year (more often depending on
furnace usage). Never attempt to repair the furnace yourself.
138
Section 9: Heating & Cooling

The furnace should be inspected periodically (monthly during the
heating season) for presence of soot on the vent. Soot is formed
whenever combustion is incomplete. This is a visual warning that the
furnace is operating in an unsafe manner. If soot is observed on the vent,
immediately shut the furnace OFF and contact a qualified service agency.
Operating the furnace under this condition could lead to serious property
damage, personal injury or loss of life.
To ensure your personal safety, do not obstruct or alter the furnace in any
manner. Do not install screens over the vent for any reason. Screens will
become restricted and cause unsafe furnace operation. For your safety,
only the manufacturer’s factory authorized parts should be used on your
furnace.

General Cleaning Microwave and Convection Microwave
IMPORTANT: Before cleaning, make sure all controls are off and the microwave oven is
cool. Always follow label instructions on cleaning products.
To avoid damage to the microwave oven caused by arcing due to soil buildup keep cavity,
microwave inlet cover, cooking rack supports, and area where the door touches the frame
clean.
Clean with mild soap, water and a soft cloth or sponge, or as indicated below.
Grease filters: mild soap and water or dishwasher.
Door and exterior: mild soap and water, or glass cleaner applied to paper towel.
Control panel: sponge or soft cloth and water.
Stainless steel (on some models): mild soap and water, then rinse with clean water and
dry with soft cloth, or use stainless steel cleaner.
Turntable: mild soap and water or dishwasher.
Rack(s): mild soap, water and washcloth. Dishwasher cleaning is not recommended.
Convection Microwave (if so equipped)
The convection microwave bridges the gap between microwaving your food
and conventional cooking.
Make sure there is sufficient 120-volt power
available before operating the convection microwave (refer to Calculating
Electrical Load). For details on operation and safety information, refer to the manufacturer’s
user guide.
Induction Cooktop (If So Equipped)
Induction cooktops are more efficient than gas or electric cooktops. The cooking surface
heats through magnetic induction. Cookware for induction cooking should be magnetic
(steel or cast iron) and have a flat bottom. Cookware made from aluminum, corning ware,
Pyrex, or glass will not work by just placing them on the surface, but can be used if they are
placed on top of a magnetic interface disk which will function as a conventional hot plate.
Stainless steel cookware may or may not work. If there is a doubt as to whether a certain pan
or skillet will work, check it with a magnet. If the magnet clings to it, it will probably work
with the induction cooktop; if it doesn’t or clings weakly it probably won’t work.
141
Section 10: Appliances

Aluminum foil should NEVER be used with an induction cooktop. It can
permanently melt to the cooktop cracking the surface or causing permanent
damage.

Touching a hot pan or cooking vessel can still cause burns. Use pot holders or
oven mitts to remove hot pans from the cooktop.
Induction cooktops are much safer to use than electric or gas.
The stovetop stays cool, no burned fingers or hands if you touch the surface.
Only the cooking vessel gets hot.
The cooking surface only works when there is a magnetic pan (or interface disk) in
place on it. Sensors detect the amount of ferrous material in the area of the magnetic
field and if it is not the size of a small pan it won’t turn on.
Induction cooktops will not heat up the kitchen.
Very rapid temperature increases can be achieved and very fine adjustments can be
made.
Refer to manufacturer’s manual for detailed operating and cleaning instructions.
Kitchen Range & Oven (If So Equipped)

142
During and after use, do not touch or let clothing or other flammable
material come in contact with the top burners (or heating elements),
burner grates or other areas near the top burners or oven until they have
had sufficient time to cool. These areas can get hot enough to cause burns.
If using glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware or other glazed
utensils (or cookware) verify it is safe for use on the top burners. Only
certain types of utensils (or cookware) are suitable for surface or top
burner use.
Never leave cooking food unattended. Turn the pan handles inward but
not over the tops of the other range burners. Ensure that pans used are
large enough to contain the food and avoid boil-overs. Heavy splattering
or spills left on the cook top can ignite and cause burns.
Do not cover the oven vent openings while the oven is in operation.
Restricting the flow of combustion air will create an asphyxiation hazard.
Section 10: Appliances
NOTE: To help reduce potential condensation or unwanted cooking
odors, turn on the overhead kitchen roof vent or the range hood vent
(if so equipped).
To prevent damage, always use the manufacturer’s recommended size flat bottom pan(s).
Generally, the pan should be large enough to cover the burner, but not be more than one inch
larger than the burner grate.
Do not use a broiler pan, griddle or any other large utensil that covers more than one burner
at a time. This will create excessive heat that may cause melting, sooting or discoloration.
The use of undersized pans could expose a portion of the heating element to direct contact
and may result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of pans to burner will improve
efficiency.
Oven (if so equipped)
The propane gas oven must have 12-volt power to operate. If you have any questions contact
your dealer or our customer service department. Do not use the oven as a storage area.
Refer to the manufacturer’s user guide for detailed operation, cleaning and safety
information.
Gas BBQ Grill (If So Equipped)

Be sure to read, understand and follow all information supplied with your
recreation vehicle concerning the use of propane before operating the
BBQ grill. The propane hose must be correctly connected before lighting

Cleaning The Interior
To keep the value of your recreation vehicle, perform regular maintenance using the proper
materials and procedures. Using the wrong cleaner may result in damage to the surfaces
in your vehicle. Check with the manufacturer’s information for the recommended cleaning
agent. If in doubt, check to see if the cleaner will cause damage by testing a small area out of
sight or contact your dealer for assistance. Do not use flammable liquids or sprays to clean
the recreation vehicle.
Décor Items
Décor items such as décor glass, furniture, window treatments, shades and blinds should be
cared for as follows:
Décor Glass (if so equipped)
Use a glass cleaner to remove smudges, smears and spots. If there is any decorative etching
on the décor glass, use care when cleaning around that area.
Furniture Upholstery
To retain the value of your recreation vehicle, maintain the furniture upholstery carefully
and keep the interior clean. Vacuum the furniture regularly using a soft brush attachment to
remove any loose dirt or debris.
Fabric (if so equipped)
It is recommended the fabric be professionally cleaned if it becomes stained or soiled. The
professional cleaner should be made aware the fabrics that may have been treated to be
fire resistant. For more information, refer to the specific furniture manufacturer’s care
instructions.
Ultraleather™ (if so equipped)
It is recommended the Ultraleather™ be professionally cleaned if it becomes stained or
soiled. For more information, refer to the specific furniture manufacturer’s care instructions.
Leather (if so equipped)
Periodic vacuuming, using a dry cloth to wipe up spills immediately, and using a damp
cloth on problem areas, will help to keep your leather furniture in good condition. Leather
surfaces can vary as do the cleaning methods. Refer to the furniture manufacturer’s
recommendation, or consult a cleaning professional.
It is recommended you do not use any cleaners containing oils, waxes or silicones. Cleaners
containing silicone can eventually destroy the finish on the leather. Cleaners containing oils
or waxes should not be used as they leave residues on the surface of the leather which can
attract more dirt which can eventually lead to cracking
Window treatments
Fabric – Drapes and valances
Dust occasionally with a vacuum and soft brush attachment. It is recommended the fabric
be professionally cleaned if it becomes stained or soiled. The professional cleaner should be
made aware the fabrics that may have been treated to be fire resistant.
Window Shades
Shades should be vacuumed periodically to remove dust. It doesn’t matter what type of
shade or fabric you have, using your vacuum cleaners upholstery brush on low suction will
remove most dust and dirt from the shade.
Refer to the shade manufacturer’s owner’s manual for additional and detailed information.
153
Section 12: Interior
To remove stuck on dust or stains refer to the following guide.
Solar shields: Use a sponge or soft brush and water to remove stains. A mild cleaning
solution can be used to remove tougher stains. Rinse after cleaning by wetting a clean cloth
in fresh water, wringing our any excess and wiping the areas where the cleaner was used.
Day/night Shades: Clean with a mild cleaning solution using a sponge or paper towel.
Wipe down with water after cleaning and dry thoroughly before raising the shade. Do not
use spot remover, household cleaners or detergents to remove soiled spots, as these may
cause damage to fabric or loss of color from fading.
Mini Blinds: A simple dry rag may do the trick. If they’re especially dirty, you can use cold
or warm water to clean them. But never use hot water.
Fill a spray bottle with water and a tiny amount of soap. Then spray a lint-free towel with
the mixture and use the towel to wipe down each slat. While cleaning, try not to bend the
slats. They can also be soaked in a bathtub to loosen up any debris so the slats can be wiped
down easily.
Roller Shades: Can be easily cared for by simply using soapy water or a mild cleaning
solution on spots. However try a small area first. Harsh household cleaners or detergents
may cause damage to fabric or loss of color. It is our recommendation to dust the rails and
fabrics of the shades on a regular basis. Shades should be kept in the closed or up position
when not in use, to maintain pleat retention and minimize dirt and soil build-up. Do not store
shades in the down position. This may cause some loss of pleat retention if the shades are
not operated on a consistent basis.
NOTE: If your recreation vehicle must be stored for an extended
period of time, store shades in the up position and cover your windows with additional protection (I.E. Cut out cardboard).
Sofa
Your recreation vehicle may be equipped with one of the following sofa styles.
Hide-a-bed Sofa or Sofa Sleeper
The hide-a-bed sofa functions much the same as a regular residential hide-a-bed sofa.
To make the hide-a-bed sofa into a bed, remove the seat cushions and pull the sofa back
towards you firmly and gently. Activate (or deflate) the air mattress (if so equipped) using
the supplied furniture manufacturer’s instructions. To convert the hide-a-bed back into the
upright sofa position, reverse the process.
Jack Knife Sofa
The Jack Knife sofa functions much the same as a residential futon. To make the sofa in to
a bed, lift up on the bottom seat cushion and pull it towards you. The sofa back will drop
down to provide a sleeping surface. For additional comfort and to reduce fabric damage,
you may want to place a cover or air mattress (customer supplied) over the sofa when it is
in the sleeping position.
Trifold Sofa The Trifold Sofa offers very similar features to the traditional hide-a-bed. The
following illustrations detail converting the sofa into a bed.
154
Section 12: Interior
1. Remove tri-fold sofa pillows and set aside
3. While sleeping surface is up, gold out legs.
Extend sleeping surface until grounded.
2. Using the strap handle, pull
sleeping surface up, then out.
4. Once sleeping surface is grounded, fold headboard
down flat.
J-Cube Sofa
The J-Cube Sofa functions similar to a residential futon. The slanted back pillows offer
numerous options as a sofa, along with the ability to extend the cushions for additional
sleeping space.
Free-Standing Table & Chairs (If So
Equipped)
The free-standing dinette table can be positioned to seat up to four people. To prevent
damage, the standard free-standing dinette chairs should be fastened securely at the dinette
table when you are traveling
Booth Dinette (If So Equipped)
The dinette is designed to seat up to four adults. Depending on your model, there may be
a storage area in the dinette bench. To access this storage, remove all the cushions and lift
up on the bottom seat support. If the bottom seat support is secured closed with screws,
do not remove the seat support or use this area for storage. The dinette seats that are
secured with screws contain factory installed equipment and should only be accessed by a
qualified service technician.
Converting the dinette to the bed position
Remove all the cushions from the booth dinette. Lift up the tabletop and remove the
detachable table legs. Place the tabletop on the ledges provided between the booth dinette
benches. Lay the seat back cushions against the back of the dinette bench. Lay the dinette
seat bottom cushions in between the seat back cushions. The area where the cushions meet
should be slightly raised. Push the raised cushion ends down gently as the cushions are
designed to fit snugly. Reverse this process when converting back to the booth dinette.
155
Section 12: Interior
Cabinetry & Tables
To keep hardwood doors, cabinet fronts and hardwood tables looking like new regularly
dust with a soft cloth dampened with a cleaning polish or mild detergent solution. Avoid
using ammonia based products or silicone oils as they may cause damage if used over a long
period of time.
The finish is durable and resistant to most household spills. However, spills should be wiped
up promptly to avoid potential problems. Excessive prolonged exposure to direct sunlight,
high temperatures and high humidity can cause damage to both the finish and the wood
itself. These should be avoided.
Pantry or Hutch (If So Equipped)
Depending on the kitchen layout of your recreation vehicle, you may have a pantry or hutch
that you can use to store items you wish to take with you as you travel and camp. Make sure
all items stored in the pantry or hutch are secured so they do not shift during travel. This
cabinetry has been designed to accommodate the normal camping items (i.e., paper plates,
flatware, cookware, etc.) which are bulky but not necessarily heavy. Remember your
recreation vehicle’s load capacity is designed by weight, not volume, so you cannot
necessarily use all available space.
If your pantry or hutch has sliding pantry shelves, they have been equipped with a locking
mechanism to keep them in place during transit. To secure the shelf in place, push it all of
the way in until the latch tab clicks into place. Always pull out slightly on the shelf to make
sure that it is stationary and secure in the transit position. To release the shelf, push in on the
tab and pull the shelf slowly towards you.

Your recreation vehicle’s load capacity is designated by weight, not by
volume, so you cannot necessarily use all available space when loading the
vehicle. Do not exceed your GVWR and ensure you are loading the vehicle
as evenly as you can for the best possible handling. Ensure heavy items are
secured so they do not shift during travel.
Countertops
To prevent permanent damage
Always use hot pads or trivets under hot pans, dishes, or heat producing appliances
such as frying pans.
Always use a cutting board; never use a knife on the countertop.
Avoid harsh chemicals such as drain cleaners, oven cleaners, etc.
Do not let cleaners with bleach set on the top. Wipe them off promptly.
For additional information on the removal of difficult stains or surface damage repair, refer
to the countertop manufacturer’s user guide.
Your recreation vehicle may be equipped with one or both of the following countertops.
Laminate countertops (if so equipped)
Glass rings, food spills, water spots and smudges usually wipe off with a damp sponge.
Stubborn stains can be removed with a general-purpose spray cleaner. Some stains can be
156
Section 12: Interior
removed by squeezing fresh lemon juice over the stain and allowing the juice to soak for
approximately forty-five minutes. After 45 minutes, sprinkle baking soda over the lemon
juice and rub with a soft cloth.
Solid surface countertops (if so equipped)
Solid surface materials are easy to care for, and if damaged, easy to repair. Soapy water,
ammonia based cleaners (not window cleaners as they can leave a waxy build up that may
dull the surface) or commercially available solid surface cleaners will remove most dirt
and residue from all types of finishes. A damp cloth followed by a dry towel will remove
watermarks.
Difficult stains can be removed from the matte finish with a green Scotch Brite® pad and a
mild abrasive cleaner.
Disinfect the surface periodically with diluted household bleach (one part water to one part
bleach). For cuts and scratches, sand the matte finish lightly with (220) fine grit sandpaper
until the cut or scratch is gone. Restore finish with a green Scotch Brite pad and mild
abrasive cleaner.
Helpful hints
Use a cutting board to prevent unnecessary damage to the countertops. Do not cut
directly on the solid surface countertop.
Use potholders or trivets before placing hot pots and pans on the countertop. Heat will
damage the countertop.
Run cold water when pouring hot/boiling water into the sink.
Solid surface sink maintenance
Occasionally, clean the solid surface sink by filling one-quarter full with a 50/50 water/
bleach solution. Let soak for 15 minutes, and then wash sides and bottom of sink as solution
drains.
Interior Wall Panel
Please contact your dealership service department for assistance in repairing décor paneling.
If deep scratches occur on the wall panel, putty sticks can be used to cover scratches on
wood surfaces. These can be obtained from local hardwood stores and lumberyards.
To clean, use a mild solution of soap and lukewarm water with a soft sponge or cloth. Wipe
dry with a soft, clean cloth.

Do not use abrasive cleaners as they may cause the vinyl to scratch and
become dull. Do not use cleaners that contain bleach
Flooring
Always test a cleaning agent in an inconspicuous area for colorfastness.
Carpet
Vacuum your carpet regularly. It is important to remove loose soil and debris while it is on
the surface. Heavily traveled areas (i.e., walkways, areas in front of the furniture) may be
protected with small throw rugs to prolong the life of the carpet.
Prompt attention to spots and spills is essential. Remove as much of the spill as possible.
157
Section 12: Interior
Absorb wet spills as quickly as possible by blotting repeatedly with white paper or cloth
towels.
Refer to the manufacturer’s guide included in your Warranty Packet for detailed cleaning
information, or contact a cleaning professional.
Vinyl flooring
Periodically vacuum or sweep to remove dirt and gritty particles. Although most common
spills will not permanently stain the vinyl floors, they are usually easier to remove if wiped
up before they set. Simply blot with a paper towel and wipe clean with a damp cloth. Do not
use dish detergents or vinegar and water because they will dull your floor.
To care for the vinyl floor covering, use a damp mop with water and a mild cleaner on
the entire floor. DO NOT SOAK THE FLOORING. Use care to avoid wetting the carpet
edges. To avoid problems of “yellowing” linoleum, the flooring manufacturer recommends
avoiding cleaners that contain oil based solvents (i.e. cleaners containing lemon oil,
Murphy’s Oil Soap, etc.).
Bed Storage
Additional storage has been provided under the bed. It is equipped with gas struts to assist
with easy access. To access the storage area, grasp the end ledge at the foot of the bed and
lift carefully. To close, carefully push down on the bed slowly easing it to the closed position.

Before lifting, be sure there is nothing on the bed that will restrict its movement
or add extra weight. Use caution when opening or closing the bed to keep
hands and fingers at the end ledge provided (not on the side or further back
than necessary) to avoid pinch points.
The bedroom electric slide room system may be located under the bed. Use care not to
obstruct the slide room system when using the under bed storage area.
ABS Plastics
Dust and wipe clean with soft, damp cloth or chamois, wiping gently. Do not use gritty or
abrasive particle soaps or scouring compound to clean ABS plastic. Avoid using “citrus” or
biodegradable cleaners which contain “D-Limonene” as they may damage plastic materials.
Floor Safe (If So Equipped)
Your recreation vehicle may have a safe which is typically mounted to the floor of the closet
or under the bed. The safe is intended to help to safeguard valuable items. You are solely
responsible for any liability from loss of personal property that is placed within the safe. To
secure items in the safe, utilize the key provided with the safe and lock it after placing items
in the box. Store the key in a location away from the safe.
158
Section 13: Exterior
Cleaning The Exterior
To protect your recreation vehicle’s exterior finish, wash it often and thoroughly.
For recreation vehicles with painted exterior graphics: If desired you may wash and wax
your vehicle 60 days after purchase. The exterior paint does need time to cure before any
wax is applied to the exterior surface. Careful maintenance for the first 60 days will assure
a long lasting durable finish.
Your recreation vehicle is exposed to many environmental conditions that have an adverse
affect on the paint finish:
Road Salt and Sodium Chloride
Road Tar / Bugs
Bird Droppings / Tree Sap
Industrial Fallout / Acid Rain /Pollution
UV Exposure and Moisture
The most common problems resulting from these conditions are corrosion, staining, and
chemical spotting. Generally, the longer the foreign material remains in contact with the
exterior finish, the more extensive the damage. These problems can be minimized by
regularly scheduled washing and polishing. Wash your recreation vehicle as soon as possible
if it becomes contaminated with foreign material.
Avoid parking under trees or near ocean sea salt. Ice or snow should not be scraped from
the painted surface: Brush off!
Gravel roads should be avoided. Anti-freeze, gasoline or washer solvents if spilled on the
painted surface should be rinsed off with water immediately. Bugs and bird droppings
should be rinsed off daily.
Washing
Commercial washing should be avoided. Wash with cold water using a mild liquid soap.
Dry wiping with a dry cloth is not recommended.
Make sure the recreation vehicle’s surface temperature is cool, under 90 F, and out of direct
sunlight. A shaded area is ideal for washing your vehicle as direct sunlight causes water
spotting. Use a mild soap or detergent. Most auto care stores will carry a car wash shampoo.
Try to avoid combination wash-n-wax products as these waxes can cause build up and are
designed for smaller surfaces. Have two dedicated sponges or wash mitts: one for the exterior
walls and one for the wheels and under- carriage. Brushes or wash mitts that are made of
plastic bristles are acceptable for use on tires and wheel wells, but are not intended for use on
the exterior walls. Avoid using such items on painted surfaces as they will damage the finish.
Wash the wheels and wheel wells first as this removes heavy dirt and debris and prevents it
from splattering on panels. Wet the entire area down to remove loose dirt and grime, then
hand wash one area at a time using your dedicated paint finish sponge or wash mitt.
Wash from the top and work your way down, rinsing frequently to minimize grit abrasion.
Follow with a final rinse of water. This process will remove most contamination from
the recreation vehicle’s surface. For stubborn stains such as road tar or bug stains, use an
ammonia based glass cleaner or a small amount of rubbing alcohol on a damp cloth followed
immediately by warm soapy water, and rinsing with clean water.
This may not dissolve the road tar, but it will loosen tar and bug stains and remove them
159
Section 13: Exterior
from the surface. Do not use solvent based cleaners on bird droppings or tree sap as these are
water based stains. They can be dissolved using ammonia based glass cleaner, warm soapy
water and a little “elbow grease”. Once again, after removing stubborn stains immediately
rinse with clean water.
Drying the recreation vehicle is just as important as washing your vehicle. Tap and well
water contain many chemicals that could water stain your vehicle’s finish. We suggest using
a damp natural or synthetic chamois. There are other drying products such as lint-free
micro-fiber towels that work just as well.
During cold weather
Salt and other chemicals that are spread on winter roads in some geographical areas can have
a detrimental effect on the recreation vehicle’s underbody. If your recreation vehicle is
exposed to these conditions, spray the underbody with a high-pressure hose every time
you wash the exterior of your recreation vehicle.
Take special care to remove mud or other debris that could trap and hold salt or moisture.
After washing your recreation vehicle, wipe off all water drops from the rubber parts around
the slideout and doors.
NOTE: When the slideout or door is frozen, opening it by force may
tear off or crack the rubber gasket that is installed around the slideout
or door. Therefore, pour warm water on the gasket to melt the ice
(wipe off the water thoroughly after opening the slideout or door). To
prevent the weather stripping from freezing, treat it with a silicone
spray.
Waxing
Wax your recreation vehicle once or twice a year, or when painted surfaces do not shed water
well. Use a soft cloth to apply a small amount of wax to the painted surfaces. After the wax
has dried, polish the recreation vehicle with a dry, soft cloth. Do not wax your recreation
vehicle in direct sunlight. Wax it after the surfaces have cooled.
Do not apply wax to any area having a flat black finish as it can cause discoloration. If the
finish has been stained with wax, wipe off the area with a soft cloth and warm water. When
waxing the area around the various openings, do not apply any wax on the weather-strip.
If it is stained with wax, the weather-strip cannot maintain a weatherproof seal around the
opening.

Do not use waxes containing high-abrasive compounds. Such waxes remove
rust and stains effectively from the paint work, but they are also harmful to the
luster of the painted surface since they scrape off the coating. Further, they
are detrimental to glossy surfaces, such as the grille, garnish, moldings, etc.
do not use gasoline or paint thinners to remove road tar or other contamination
to the painted surface.
160
Section 13: Exterior
Polishing your recreation vehicle
If painted surfaces have been severely damaged and have lost their original luster and
color tone, polish the surface lightly with a fine polishing compound. Avoid limiting your
polishing to the damaged surface only; polish a somewhat wider area, moving the polishing
cloth in one direction. After polishing, flush the compound from the surface and apply a coat
of wax to regain a beautiful luster.

Do not use a buffer and a buffing compound as it may damage the exterior
surface. Please contact a professional paint body shop for assistance.
Damaged paint
To prevent corrosion, touch up small cracks and scratches in the paint coat as soon as
possible with touch-up film or paint. Carefully check the body areas facing the road and the
tires for damage to the paint coat caused by flying stones, etc. To purchase touch-up paint,
use the closest automotive paint (available locally) match possible.
Cleaning plastic parts
Use a sponge or chamois to clean plastic parts. Use warm water and a soft cloth or chamois
to remove any white residue from dark colored plastic surfaces. Do not use a scrubbing
brush, other hard tools, or wax containing abrasives as they may damage the plastic surface.

Do not allow plastic to come into contact with brake fluid, engine oil, grease,
paint thinner, or batter acid. These will damage plastic. Use a soft cloth and
a mild detergent solution to wipe away any such contact.
Chrome parts
To prevent chrome parts from spotting or corroding, wash with water, dry thoroughly, and
apply a non-abrasive automotive wax. If the chrome is severely damaged or pitted, use a
commercially available chrome polish product.
Frame
Sand, pebbles, objects on the highway, climate (salt air exposure) or ice inhibiting chemicals
used during the winter months will damage the paint, inviting rust and other deterioration.
Periodically inspect the exterior exposed areas, clean and repaint the frame members
occasionally and whenever you notice rust or paint chipped away, to insure protection.
E-Z Lube or Super-Lube Axle (If So Equipped)
The E-Z lube or Super-lube feature on your axles provides the ability for the bearings to be
periodically lubricated without removing the hubs from the axle. This feature consists of
axle spindles that have been specially drilled and fitted with grease zerks in their ends. When
grease is pumped into the zerk, it is channeled to the inner bearing and then flows back to the
outer bearing and eventually back out the grease cap hole. If you have further questions,
consult with your dealer.
161
Section 13: Exterior
NOTE: The convenient lubrication provisions of the E-Z lube or
Super-lube feature must not replace periodic inspection and maintenance of the bearings. Use a hand-operated grease gun; improper
use of a commercial grease gun may damage the seals.
Exterior Roof & Sidewall Vents
While you are cleaning the exterior roof assembly, also inspect the roof vents (including
sealants) for cracks and keep them clean. Inspect the refrigerator and holding tank vents
for blockages from bird nests, spider webs, leaves, etc. All exterior access doors and vents
need to be kept clean and free of obstructions (i.e., insect nests, mud daubers, etc.) while the
appliances are in use.
Windows
Any ventilating window may permit water inside, especially during heavy rainstorms.
Condensation will also cause water to accumulate on windows and in the tracks.
The window “glass” can normally be cleaned with a sponge and water. Use glass cleaner to
remove wax, oil, grease, dead insects, etc. After washing the glass, wipe it dry with a clean,
soft cloth.
Exterior ladder (If So Equipped)
Your recreation vehicle may be equipped with an exterior roof ladder. The recreation vehicle
roof has decking under the rubber roof membrane to allow you to walk on the roof (with
caution) to do maintenance.

If your recreation vehicle is equipped with a roof ladder, do not leave items
attached to it while traveling. The ladder weight capacity should not be
exceeded (see ladder capacity label). DO NOT exceed this weight limit. There
should never be more than one person on the ladder at the same time.
Self-Storing Side Ladder
Some models may be equipped with a self-storing ladder mounted to the side of the vehicle.

Make sure to pull all (there may be up to 4) pins to unlock the ladder. All pins
must be re-inserted when locking the ladder open for use. Failure to do so
may result in serious personal injury.
162
Section 13: Exterior
Ladder operation
1. Pull all the locking pins (arrows) out of the ladder
brackets (Fig. A).
2.
Pull the ladder down and toward you and it will swing
away from the RV.
3.
When the brackets are extended (Fig. B), re-insert the
pins (arrows) to lock the ladder in place while in use.
4.
To return the ladder to the storage position; pull the
locking pins and push the ladder up and in towards the
RV.
5.
When the ladder is in the storage position, re-insert all
locking pins to prevent the ladder from opening while
traveling.
Sealants

Failure to properly maintain or reseal your recreation vehicle may result in
serious water damage to the roof and other parts of the recreation vehicle. This
damage is not covered by the Towable Limited Warranty.
Sealants perform a very important function and should be inspected closely and regularly
maintained. We incorporate many different types of sealants, including butyl/putty, black
butyl-encapsulated foam, silicone (clear and colored), roof sealant and foam. In general,
sealants do not have “set” lifetimes. Varying environmental factors affect the pliability and
adhesiveness of sealants.
You or your dealer must:
Inspect all sealants, a minimum of every six months. Make sure to check the roof
and all four sides of the recreation vehicle including al moldings, doors, vents and
exterior attachments. A quick walk around the recreation vehicle before leaving may
help prevent potential problems during trips and vacations.
Have the sealant replaced if you notice any cracks, peeling, voids, gaps, breaks,
looseness or any sign of physical deterioration. Reseal at least one time each year as
preventative maintenance.
Always use the same type of sealant that was removed. Your dealer recreation vehicle
service or parts manager can help you obtain the correct sealant(s).
The sealants may become damaged due to road vibration, ultraviolet exposure, air pollution,
freezing temperatures and exposure to other elements. If deteriorated, repair immediately
to prevent damage.
If you notice water inside the recreation vehicle, immediately have the dealer check for the
source of the leak. Failure to correct the leak may result in serious damage to your recreation
vehicle; this damage may not be warrantable.
Although the diagrams below may not accurately reflect the exact model of your recreation
vehicle, make sure you inspect all sealants as indicated in the text. If you have questions
and/or need assistance with sealing your recreation vehicle, consult with your recreation
vehicle dealer.

RV Storage
Properly preparing your RV for storage during periods of non-usage will prevent problems
from arising. It will also make it easier to get started again for the following camping trip or
season. To prevent costly freeze-ups, winterize the plumbing system when it will not be in
use for an extended period of time, especially if it is stored in colder climates.
Periodically inspect your RV for damage during storage, and seal off any area that can offer
an entry point for rodents, birds or insects. Damage from birds, rodents, insect, etc., is not
covered under the “Towable Limited Warranty” applicable to your RV.
When storing your RV, it is recommended that the auxiliary battery (customer supplied) be
disconnected to avoid battery discharge.
Prior to Storage
If storing for the winter, be sure the RV is winterized (refer to Sec. 8 Plumbing System,
Winterizing the plumbing system).
Check your roof and other surfaces to ensure there is no damage and potential leakage
that might otherwise go unnoticed until it is too late.
Close all windows and roof vents.
Close the propane cylinder valve(s). If you do not have a propane cylinder cover, we
recommend purchasing one to make sure the regulator is covered.
Cover all external outlets, such as furnace, exhaust, etc. to prevent mice or other rodents
from entering.
Cover the roof air conditioner (if so equipped).
Disconnect 120-volt AC power to the RV.
Do not use the stabilizing jacks during storage.
Drain all water lines.
Drain and flush all holding tanks (fresh water, gray water, black water and/or hot water
tanks).
Remove all batteries from the RV and store in a place where they won’t freeze. Batteries
that have been frozen will never hold a proper charge.
Store your RV indoors, under a roof or purchase a “breathable” cover for use during
storage.
167
Section 14: Travel/Camping/Storage Checksists
Thoroughly wash the interior and the exterior of your RV.
To prevent weather checking and other UV damage, cover tires that are exposed to
sunlight.
Turn all cushions on edge to prevent the moisture/mildew buildup during storage.
Turn off 12-volt DC/120-volt AC/propane to the refrigerator; defrost and clean (if so
equipped). Prop (or block) the doors open so air can circulate and prevent mildew or
use crumpled newspaper or open boxes of baking soda in the refrigerator to eliminate
odors during storage.
Remove all perishables from the cabinets. Leave the cabinets and doors ajar to allow
air circulation and prevent mildew and musty odors.
Remove all perishables from the cabinets. Leave the cabinets and doors ajar to allow
air circulation and prevent mildew and musty odors.
Lubricate locks and hinges on exterior doors.
During Storage Period
Remove snow from the top of your RV to prevent damage to the unit’s structure.

Excessive snow, 8” or more, or ice, 2” or more, places excessive weight on the
RV roof. Remove excessive snow or ice as needed. Care MUST be exercised
to not damage the roof material when removing snow & ice. Excessive weight
can damage the roof, seals, etc. Water leaks and poor fit or operation are the
results of this damage.
