    Eloy&GayeFMCA- Diesel RV Club:
    I have a question. Can you really Bend the chassis or frame while leveling the MH incorrectly? I couldn't tell when the jacks were on the ground. I didn't hear a buzzer or warning signal. I got them to high and had to start over several times. How would I...  more

      Den and Deb Doesn't your level system shut off when you are level? Ours doesn't have a buzzer but a green level light in the middle.

      WayneGD try posting in http://www.rvillage.com/group/92/holiday-rambler-monaco-dp-diesel. I've heard about not using the jacks for tire changes and not getting any tires off the ground when leveling but I have no idea what it takes to twist the frame.

      Barb and Gary A lot depends on which leveling system you have.  Some only allow you to raise Jacks in pairs.  Front pair. Rear pair, side pair.  This really reduces the problems.  Other systems have a sensor that detects twist in the frame.  Th...  more

      Eloy&Gaye Thanks, we only have three. One in the front and two in back. We have 2004 Safari. It's hard being new at this stuff! That Manuel is generic.

        Barb and Gary I had a 2000 American Dream on a Spartan chassis with a 3 point jack system..  When you start the leveling process the air is let out of the air bags and the coach sets down on the bumpstops located inside the bags. You need to get the front end up o...  more

      Susan & Richard Our 2000 Harney Renegade is like a half sister to your Safari. Same jacks. We had to use our jacks one time when we got stuck (so we could block and get traction).  Have not noticed any adverse effects from that.  When we can see that we're way ...  more

      Eloy&Gaye Thanks, I think they used the jacks to put new tires on. I wouldn't know if we were having an issue with anything unless it were really obvious. We haven't had the coach very long. Today I noticed that the top of the fridge is loose and leans out about 2 ...  more

        Mike and Donna Wagner We have a 2002 Safari that also has a Norcold gas/electric refrigerator. We had to replace it last year. It has a flange along the front sides that attach with screws to the wood cabinets on both sides. The flange and screws are covered with a decorative ...  more

      Susan & Richard Refrigerator Level - Be vigilant on keeping the frig level.  We lost one several years ago, from being off level. Had a device installed that turns it off before it goes to critical.  Well worth the cost.  You will see them at the RV shows ...  more

      Eloy&Gaye Thanks, I have an appointment to have it fixed next week. I'm praying that it makes it ok for our trip this weekend. I'm going to turn it off while we travel.

      Eloy&Gaye How hard would it be to take it out ourselves and rebrace it? We only see 4 screws across the top that aye screwed to 2x2 wooden blocks. The blocks don't appear to be attached. No screws down the sides. The RV repair place charge $125 an hour.
