    Wed at 4:40 PMHello all, we have a new to us 2013 Allegro Bus 45lp. The roof appears to be leaking around or undet the front half roof mounted awning (Paramount awning). Is there an easy way to move the awning so I can reseal the hold down brackets? Has anyone else had...  more

      Claude and Linda Wed at 5:56 PM John a water leak can run, are you sure of the start location of your leak? Your awning is different then mine otherwise I would try to offer some useful advise.

        Newlife Wed at 6:13 PM Claude and Linda, thank you for your response. I looked at the roof area around where the leak "appears" to come from very closely and I do not see any places that look like the sealant is broken or marred. When I retracted the awning the leak seems to h...  more

      BoA36 Wed at 6:33 PM Have you tried Dicor to seal the area?

        Newlife Wed at 6:39 PM BoA36, thanks for your response. Not yet on the Dicor as I am trying to see if someone knows a way to remove the awning. I think it weighs over 200lbs. I was hoping that someone had already tackled my leak issue with the same type of awning. John

      Hank & Shirleen Wed at 6:59 PM Newlife. There is a way to determine exactly where the leak is located. It will take someone that has a pressure unit (not every place has one). I had a leak. I know a Tiffin Has one. They used it on my Phaeton. They put a unit on my vent fan sucking air ...  more

        Newlife Wed at 7:18 PM Hank and Shirleen, thanks for your insight. I will check with Tiffin and see if they know a place that can fix the roof leak. We are fulltimers, so we are trying to find a place that will fix the leak in one day. We are currently in WA, state so Red Bay i...  more

      Hank & Shirleen Wed at 7:40 PM Newlife. Tiffin has area reps across the country. Also ask who it is for Washington State. They may cover more then one state. When we were in Oregon one summer I dealt with a fellow named Phillips. Get their name and number.  It may well be a help a...  more

        Newlife Thu at 9:13 PM Hank and Shirleen, thanks for your help. I have decided to take it to an RV shop in Tacoma, WA. Hopefully they will be able to find the leak and fix it in one day...fingers crossed. John
      • Newlife
        Hank & Shirleen Fri at 8:18 AM Let us know how it works out. Do they find the leak and where was it?
    • Newlife
      Ann & Jerry Wed at 8:26 PM I don’t want to be the bearer of bad news. If the awning needs to be removed it is a big job. Requires a forklift and skilled workers. But I doubt very much that your leak is there.

        Newlife Thu at 9:08 PM Ann and Jerry, thanks for your knowledge regarding my leak issue. I am going to take it to an RV shop on Monday. It looks to be too big of a job for me to do. Have fun in your travels. Thanks, John

    Rex and Donna:
    Wed at 2:44 PMWe have a Tiffin Allegro 35QBA. If we boondock, does that mean that we cannot use anything that is powered by 120v plug unless our generator is running? So no TV, microwave, etc?
    • Rex and Donna
      Andy Burleigh Wed at 3:05 PM Depending on the availability of an inverter, you can run much of your coach for a limited time.  Newer coaches with all LED lighting and high efficiency systems will be better.  You can then crank the gen and recharge
    • Rex and Donna
      Rex and Donna Wed at 3:10 PM I'm sure we have an inverter but I don't really know how that works.  Do the appliances automatically work through the inverter if we are not plugged into shore power or generator?
    • Rex and Donna
      Steve and Carolyn Wed at 3:13 PM Thanks for these questions.  I'm new to this and learning too!  Eagerly awaiting the responses.
    • Rex and Donna
      Gene Meyer Wed at 4:05 PM We use our inverter at night it runs most things and our solar charges the batt in the day time if the batt gets to low the gen will start and charge the batts
    • Rex and Donna
      R&P Wed at 4:26 PM If your microwave light is on, the fridge is working and likely the inverter. If not check electric bay to see if light is on.

    July 9New to RV’ing. Tiffin Open Road. Rt side pass air conditioning vent just stopped blowing? Serious repair? Thx.

    • Deb & Gary
      Alan and Rebecca July 9 Doubt serious.  Most likely the way they are made the hose to the vent came loose on one or the other.
      Look under dash.  Too many years to remember where to look on other end, but I would bet under dash.

      Onlytherocks July 9 On our open road that whole carpeted panel just pulls off, easy to see what's happening. Everything else is under the hood.
    • Deb & Gary
      Newlife July 9 They have a plastic part that comes out of its track on the blend door. Tiffin has a fix for that issue.

        Deb & Gary July 10 Sorry but which is the “blend” door.
        I’ll call Tiffin.
      • Deb & Gary
        Newlife July 10 It is called the blend door. It is where the heater sends the air flow to (defrost, feet, both, etc). It is located right in front of the passengers seat. It is behind the carpet that has the lower vent (foot vent). You will have to be patient and search ...  more

      RICHARD & PENNY YOOD July 9 We totally lost our dash AC on 10 June, and can find no reason why. Thank goodness our Open Road has dual ACxs, been running the generator & both roof units while driving to keep the front end tolerable. Couldn't find any mobile truck mechanics the whole ...  more

    July 6OK got a problem. We have a 2014 Phaeton with a stacking washer and dryer. After being on the road for a week it was time to do laundry - but the washer won't start! Checked the breaker, no problem, the dryer works and it is on the same circuit. Husband p...  more

      Paul And Carole July 7 Provide the make and model of the unit please.  If it is a Splendide they have great customer support.
    • Sue Hoffman
      Tom & Sue Wyatt July 7 We have a 14 bus with the Spendide stackables. Have had that happen on occasion. Turned off the breaker and waited about 15 minutes. Turned it back on and the washer magically worked again. May or may not the solution for you :)

      Andy Burleigh Wed at 3:14 PM Don’t know if it is on a ground fault circuit (square buttons between plugs). One button is test and the other is reset.  If the circuit is hot you can test and reset.  It could also be slaved off another plug which will have the buttons, maybe ...  more

    July 6Okay. Just had to replace the DEF head on my 17 Bus. It is still under warranty, so Tiffin overnighted one to us, but holiday made to 2 days. Had Steven from Snake River RV & Hitch come from Idaho Falls to replace it. We were in Victor, ID. Highly recomme...  more

    July 5We have a 2014 Bus with Carefree Paramount awnings. The remote control has bit the dust. Changed the batteries. Electrically un-challenged spouse even took it apart to see if he could fix it. Nope. I checked on their website, and they want an eye-popping ...  more

      Ann & Jerry July 5 Did you check the hard wired one in the cabinet? Did it have a green light?

      • Tom & Sue Wyatt
        Tom & Sue Wyatt July 5 The hard wired one works. There is a green light on the bottom right of the hard wired one in the cabinet. There is a red light in the top left corner (which I believe is the power).
    • Tom & Sue Wyatt
      Ann & Jerry July 5 I’m not at ours now, but we have the same thing. I do know when I had a red light on it the remote didn’t work. I pressed a button on the hard wired device, got a green light and the remote worked. We do take the batteries out when we’re not going to use ...  more

        Tom & Sue Wyatt July 5 Carefree. We plan on calling Tiffin on Monday when they are back from vacation :) We'll take a better look at the lights. Don't see a red light on the remote though. Good idea to remove the batteries. We do that with a lot of electronics but neglected to ...  more

      Ann & Jerry July 7 Tom and Sue, I just mentioned this to my husband. He said it need to be reprogrammed. Instruction are in the Carefree manual. He said you can call Carefree and they’ll walk you through it.

      Tom & Sue Wyatt Tue at 11:04 AM Thanks Ann & Jerry! We reprogrammed the remote and now it works fine. Not sure how it became unprogrammed ...

    July 3Anyone use the Magneshade products for sun protection? They are pretty expensive wondering if it's worth the money.
    • Tom & Sue Wyatt
      Hillary July 3 I do not personally have any magneshade products but I have only read really positive reviews here on RVillage. 
    • Tom & Sue Wyatt
      Claude and Linda July 3 Thanks for asking the question, I was wondering the same thing.
    • Tom & Sue Wyatt
      Ellen & Dan July 3 We’ve had ours for 5 years and can’t imagine not having it!  It cuts down on a lot of heat in the front windshield and you can still see out but it’s hard to see in.  We got one for the drivers side window too.  Another benefit is my husban...  more

        Tom & Sue Wyatt July 4 Interesting. We asked Magneshade about the likelihood of the shade blowing off. They said it is good up to 50 MPH winds although depending on the direction of the wind it could be more or less. I guess nothing is perfect!
    • Tom & Sue Wyatt
      Rolling Wheels July 3 Yes, the shade definitely makes a difference! We only have the front window shade, but it really helps. 
    • Tom & Sue Wyatt
      Tom & Sue Wyatt July 4 Thanks for all the responses! We just ordered one for the front windshield. The production time is 5-7 weeks but hopefully, it won't take that long. We really like the fact that you can look out. We feel like we're in a cave with all the blinds pulled dow...  more

    • David & Cheryl Scoby
      The Knapkes July 1 I don't know if they still do but Tiffin was using TripleVision brand.  Not good.  We replaced with another  brand from Amazon and have had no trouble since.

    June 30Beware ... this happened to us. The wires under passenger seat got crimped by the footrest. It shorted against the chair frame and burned up. Luckily it happened while we were home or we may have no home!

    • Tom & Sue Wyatt
      Mark & Robin Green June 30 Happened to us too. Didn't burn, but shorted out. Had to take the chair off the pedestal and reroute all the wires so it wouldn't happen again. Good times! 😕
