Holding Tank Issues? Let's face it, issues with your sewage holding tanks are never a good thing.  From routine maintenance to an urgent service need, Sundance Custom RV recommends Duane Sanders at RVFlush. I have found Duane to uphold the same service standards I adhere to.  Call him at 800-517-6977 or visit his web site at WWW.RVFLUSH.COM

Norcold Recall Kit Placement:  If you have a Norcold 12XX series 4 door refrigerator that has had the HT SENSOR recall kit installed, the control box placement should be adjusted so that the front of the control box faces down, not out. The control box can be  accidentally tripped by moisture entering it, such as when the RV is pressure washed. Rotating the box down (which is held in place by a spring clamp and easily rotated) lowers the possibility of water intrusion. Recall information can be found at this site: NORCOLD RECALL INFORMATION If you have any questions on this, please contact Norcold recall line at 800-767-9101.

Escaping RV Fires. Customers Jerry & Jane Lihou hold seminars regarding escaping your RV in the event of fires. This bulletin has some great pointers that ALL RV owners need to practice, regardless of your physical condition. In addition, make sure your LPG, CO and Smoke Detectors are not expired, test them monthly, and know the location of your Fire Extinguishers - all RV's should have 3, entry, galley and bedroom. Thanks Jerry & Jane!

Service Support
In my years of experience, I frequently find that many problems experienced by RV'ers are due to the owner not fully understanding how their RV systems operate and many problems can often be averted by having more than a basic knowledge of the functions of their RV's systems. These articles are presented to help enlighten you, my customers, slightly beyond the basics and give you the background as to why systems operate the way they do, and in having this knowledge hopefully will help you to avert common problems. Some articles are lengthy, but I sincerely hope that you will find the information interesting and the contents in them someday of use to you should you suffer a problem that is addressed in them. Please bookmark this page and check back frequently as I intend to continue to build and expand this database for my customers.
Thank you, Kevin Bell.
