    Hi. I have a '95 Fleetwood Southwind, Chevy Chassis. When I travel about 2-3 miles everything seems fine - then, suddenly, the vehicle locks up. It cools down and in about 30 minutes I can move again. Then it happens all over again. The brakes are only a ...  more

      Marshall and Kathy Have the same problem periodically. So when ready to travel, I get out, verify the jacks are up (just to be sure) then shut off the engine, re-start, and wait until the control panel finishes blinking "wait". Then I turn it off and away we go... no alarm....  more

    Houston we have a problem! We have a 2005 DP Fleetwood Discovery 39 L and it seems we are not getting gas when we step on the pedal. Not sure if it’s a fuel filter, pump, etc? Any help would be greatly appreciated

      BobKathy95 Most likely the fuel filter. Replace the water separator also.

      Dave & Sue Not sure about the newer ones but my 96 Cummins has a small filter behind the injector pump and a larger water separator/filter mounted on the frame rail. But sure to fill them as full as possible with Diesel fuel before screwing the new ones in place. Hide 1 Reply
      • Roy & Mary
        Roy & Mary Thank you. We are trying to find a filter now.
        • June 23

      Ken Offer The other problem could be the throttle. I'm sure yours would be electronic. It will have to go onto a diagnostic computer. But first do your filters as you may have gotten some bad fuel.

        Dave & Sue I bought a filter wrench from NAPA. It's a long square bar with a strap attached. A 1/2 inch ratchet or breaker bar fits in the center. Wrap the strap as near the base as possible. I haven't had a bad experience with filters since using this wrench. I use...  more

    Has anyone every had work done at the Fleetwood factory on anrig out of warranty? I'm just wondering if it's possible and what your experience was like. Do they have a place to plug in while waiting to be seen? I've got a 2010 Discovery 40G that I have...  more

        Avid Explorers I am seriously thinking about taking a week or so out of the schedule and just heading to Indiana.  We can take the toad and go explore.  About their parking area...are there full hook ups or at least electric?  Anything?

      BobKathy95 Parking lot is new and paved. Full power only - they will plug your coach back in each day after working on it - some people stay in their coach while it is being worked on. - no charge for that.  Water and dump station is available on south side of ...  more

      JC & Gloria The bad news is: they no longer take drop-ins.  They had to lay off some people. The other thing is they work from 6am to 2pm.  So you can expect a knock on your door at 6:15 to take your rig. Hide 2 Replies

        BobKathy95 was not aware of the change in drop-off policy

      WE are Fulltime RV'ers That s**ks. Don't use the one in Texas. Many many bad experiences. Can't see why they had to layoff again in IN. They are really good with no problems. We used to stop there every year as a walk in. Guess that won't happen any more. Hide 1 Reply

        Tom & Vicki We spent 2 weeks at the plant in Decatur and they never fixed the problem, after 4 months in and out of shops, the plant in Texas resolved our issue.  Billy was a true pleasure to work with.

      Chriss Sorenson I had my 2014 36E Bounder weighed and was recommended 90 lb in the back and 85 in the front. so that's what I've been running for the past year.

    • Michael & beth
      Jeff & Wendy I’d weigh your rig and then lookup the recommended pressure from the tire manufacture. I have an Excursion and run 95 in the front and 105 in the rear.

      Ross & Melanie I have a 37 foot Expedition. The sticker inside states 85# for all tires. When I weighed all four corners, the pressure should be 107# for all the tires. The side walls say 120# max cold. My TPTS show as high as 124# when hot.

        Ken Offer I would check with a tire shop -- they will have a book on what air pressure your tires should have when cold. That said if you sticker says 85 PSI then thats what is to go in.  My sticker was wrong , thats why we went to the book; What's on your tir...  more
