I have such an awesome motorhome. Have loved every minute of driving and camping in it. Her only flaw is how hot the EGT's climb going over passes. I can run 55, but after a couple miles she climbs up close to 1000 degrees, so I'll back out and run about 45 mph and it will stabilize around 900 or so...

I have a 93 24' rear bunk/rear bath with a factory 7.3 turbo-diesel and I have been averaging 12-13 MPG on flat runs with the cruise set at about 57. I got nearly 12 driving over the coast range and back and was impressed with that. One thing I am going to be doing shortly is installing an aftermark...

Thanks! Elsa is in fantastic shape. Isaac is definitely in love too. Our first trip was a huge success and I'm looking forward to the next, and then the next, and so on. 8)

Thanks. This is RV #2 for my family and I, and a HUGE upgrade over the last. My previous was a 1998 21' Tahoe Lite travel trailer that was essentially bare-bones... The biggest problem with it was the poor build-quality. I bought it with a little soft spot in the floor and some previous water damage...

OK, so I got in there last night and realized I've been slightly dumb in not opening the little black box... So in a moment of enlightenment, I opened it and discovered a set of handwritten instructions describing each and every switch. Each switch turns on a different tank heater! One for fresh, on...

Wow! As soon as you said that, it started making perfect sense. I will be testing this this evening. If it is an inverter, my guess would be the plug for the TV at the very least. Boy, I bet you're right! Thanks much!

I will be doing that at some point. They are 12V though as they work without external power and they feed into a box that says "low voltage" on it.. lol. I may have to trace the wires at some point, which looks rather difficult...

I might end up calling Kim too, if nothing else comes up. It could be something custom that a previous owner did. I too have all the above switches you mentioned, including the switches on the range hood for the water pump, fan, light, and holding tank/battery indicators. I have turned these lit one...

Here is my vanity area outside the bathroom. You can see the switch on the left that says "W.H.". The first of the 4 switches on the right is the vanity light. The rest... :?: http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb263/djlibal/2012-10-02191045.jpg This next picture is what all the switches are fed in ...

Also, I have a large switch that is actually labeled Water Heater. It's the same type of large switch that starts the Generator.

I do have the full manual, but it unfortunately does not specify what those switches do. The one switch is for the light over the vanity/sink area. The others are a mystery. The lights in the separate bathroom are separate. Could it be maybe one of them is a tank heater? I'll take a picture and put ...

Hello All, I just tried to make my first post and apparently missed a step, so I am trying over. Last week I bought the Class C I've been dreaming about owning for a long time. Not only is it a Born Free, but it has the 7.3 factory Turbo Diesel. The cab is fully loaded with all power options includi...
