Hello and welcome on the forum.

As our Master of Ceromony Oz orders us we need to post at the specific boards. Oz really needs to be this strict so we keep the forum in order and information easy to find.

Just place the question in the right chassisboard (Chevy/Dodge/Ford-John Deere) so I can answer your question.

There probably are probes in your watertank,

You can measure them with a multimeter when the tank is empty and when the tank is full, If you can get in the tank you can also connect the probes with a wire.

Of course you should get a different reading empty (full resistance) / full (low resistance)  and you should get a reading on your Multimeter

If that's ok you can measure your wiring. There shouldn't be any resistance there. If there is you should replace the wire.

And then last the controlboard. You can measure the bulbs/leds as well with a multimeter.

Always start with the right rear, (furthest from the master cylinder). Then work your way closer to the MC, i.e. left rear, right front and lastly left front.

We have manuals in the club store.

The chairs don't clear the engine cover because that's just how they are.

Please ask technical questions on the corresponding message boards.

Thanks for the reply.  Im struggling to find manuals on her, do you know how i turn on the air compressor to pressurise the water tank?  I only have one battery!... so presume it can be 12v as well as the 110?  Im guessing any Winnie from late 60's early 70s will be similar?

also todays puzzle - wondering why the captains seats rotate but dont clear the engine cover?!
Dodge - Chrysler Chassis / 1976 Brave D-21 Brake Bleeding
Last post by RoamingRobert - March 18, 2023, 07:22 PM
What is the order I should follow in bleeding the brakes on the 1976 Winnebago Brave D-21? 

Thanks!!!  I read that this is the M350 chassis .... just starting to work on the breaks .... got it running really well finally .....  brakes are next ... looks the previous owner had new brakes installed about 5 years ago before he passed away.... they seems to have a little too much travel to make be comfortable so I'm having a friend come over and I plan to drain the brakes and then flush it out with new fluid and then finally refill it and bleed the lines for air.

Thanks for the reply, I'll have to do a bit more checking. I think the lights in mine are LED's.

I had a few bids made on the imperial for cabinets..absolutely ridiculous pricing. I took a close look at the Navigator my friend has, those cabinets are basically a heavy built frames. They then took solid wood fascia and fastened it to the frames.

So I went to Homedept depot, picked up some cheap cabinets with decent fascia and built a frame inside the cabinet. It worked out quite well, attaching them to the wall is a bit hairy. Spreading the load of the cabinets across the entire wall studs was my approach,I am keeping a very sharp eye on the outer walls for far so good
