Interior and exterior lighting

Recently the running lights, the tail lights and the interior lights in the living room slide all quit working at the same time. These circuits don't seem to be related to each other or use the same fuse. So what is the common ingredient? The fuses appear good. Do any of you know where I ought to start looking for the problem and cure?

RE: Solitude leaning to one side.

Turns out we did have a broken spring, which caused the lean angle. Found a shop that just happened to have a used spring of the right size. That took care of it for now. Should at least get us home.

RE: Solitude leaning to one side.

Thanks everyone, I really appreciate your input here. We found a local repair shop and they got us back on the road. So now we can finish the trip. When we get home we can install heavier springs all around etc.

RE: Solitude leaning to one side.

Thanks everyone. When I said the springs looked good, I just meant nothing appeared to be broken. The springs on the low side are flat. As far as leaf springs go, they look incredibly small for the size of the load. What are the odds of a catastrophic failure and the trailer leaving the roadway? We are in AZ on a trip to CA, OR, MT SD and back to MN. What are the odds we can go that many miles without something breaking? We bought this trailer used. It may have been leaning all along and I just noticed it. I need a quick education on suspension parts. If you have personal experience, please help.

Solitude leaning to one side.

Our Solitude 369RL is leaning to the left. We are loaded up for a month long journey and our pantry, frig, Island, stove etc. is all located on that side of the 5er. We are 3 inches low on that side. Springs look okay. Is it possible to put air bags on a trailer?

Grand Canyon

We'll be here in just a couple weeks. We are older and won't be going on long steep hikes. We heard flying through the canyon is pretty cool. What would you recommend for us to see/do in this area? Anyone who has flown in the canyon please offer your pros and cons.

Antelope Canyon

Well be here in just a couple weeks. Where is a good place to hire a guide for this attraction? Are there any other cool things to do in this area?

Hwy 160 in Colorado: Alamosa to Cortez

We hope to drive this route in the next few weeks. Will we have any problems with low bridges or tight mountain curves? We have a 40 foot 5th wheel trailer and a 1 ton dually crew cab truck.

RE: Are there any snowbird RV parks in New Mexico?

More good ideas. I checked out several locations in Alabama. They look promising. One question: are there NO SEE'EM (spelling) bugs in that area? We ran into those bugs in the panhandle before and they nearly ate me alive.

RE: Are there any snowbird RV parks in New Mexico?

Thanks for all the political advise. I agree with all that has been said. Perhaps I shouldn't have included that topic with this post. We are open to going anywhere, other than TX. From what ya'll said it sounds like New Mexico is too cold in winter. Is that about the size of it? We haven't tried Florida or California, but from what we have heard, those two areas are much more expensive than TX. Please offer any parks that you think might work for us.

Are there any snowbird RV parks in New Mexico?

We've been wintering in Texas, but the RV parks we stay at has sold and we are tired of the whole right wing leaning of Texas. So we're thinking of other locations. We'll miss the beach and our friends but if we find a good place to land for the winter maybe some friends will come along. Does anyone know of places to winter in New Mexico?

Beartooth pass

Has anyone seen an RV, of any type, on Beartooth pass? Are RVs even allowed on the pass?

Antelope Canyon

This coming fall we plan to visit Antelope Canyon and surrounding area. We haven't been there before. If you have been there please clue us in on what you enjoyed the most, times of year to go there, different things to see, places to camp etc.

RE: Water leak, we cannot find.

We have been parked in the same site since January 5th of this year. We are winter Texans along the gulf coast. So the trailer hasn't moved and it really hasn't rained enough to talk about all winter. The shower is located above the trailer basement so if that is the location of the leak I'd think the basement would be wet, but there is no water in the basement. This leak seems to be below the basement, granted there really isn't anything below the basement other than that plastic membrane. So all I really know is that the leak is very low in the trailer. We will be heading for home in about two weeks so we have decided to cut a hole in the membrane at the lowest point and just head for home. If it leaks along the way all the water will be able to escape out the hole. Once we get home we'll take the trailer to the dealer where we bought it and let them find the leak and fix it. When I first noticed the badly sagging plastic membrane hanging down so low and obviously filled with many gallons of water I panicked a bit, but with the help of ya'll and thinking it all through I've calmed down and we'll be fine going home. Thanks for your help.

Water leak, we cannot find.

Today water started leaking out from between the membrane on the very bottom of the 5er and the metal frame the screws that hold it on are attached to. Upon inspection, the membrane was full of water all the way across the trailer and the entire area in from of the first axle was sagging severely. We shut off the water spigot, cleaned everything out of the basement, there was no water in the basement, and removed the wall to gain access to the area behind the water valves. With the wall removed we inspected everything and saw no leaks. So we turned the spigot back on there were no leaks anywhere. Next, we turned on the water in the kitchen sink, bathroom and shower one at a time. There were no leaks. After that we removed all the screws that were holding the membrane on one side. Here, we could see where water had been, but couldn't tell where it was leaking. I think our next step is to remove all the screws from the membrane in front of the first axle and pull the membrane down to get a better view. But before I do all of that, I thought I'd ask all the knowledgeable people who might have been here before. Is there a better idea than removing the membrane? Can you offer me any ideas of how that area could get wet? The wet area is all below the basement floor. By the way our trailer is a Grand Design Solitude 369RL.

The back wall of our 2014 369RL Solitude is delaminating slightly. We have no clue what is required to repair this problem. It doesn't look like an easy fix. Please share your personal experiences with this type of problem and what you think is the approach to repair it.

RE: Norcold Refrigerator

I spoke too soon. This problem is still a problem same as before. The tray fills up with ice and then water spills over and lands on the floor. The back of the tray is definitely lined up with the outlet tube. When we open the outside access to the back of the frig, we can see no drain tube/hose etc. We can see nothing that looks like some kind of drain. Short of pulling the refrigerator out of the trailer and getting behind it, we don't know what to do next. Does anyone have a good idea how we ought to proceed?

Thanks for the help everyone. All is well now.

Norcold Refrigerator

Our Norcold, double wide refrigerator has a puddle of water under it every morning. The manual address this issue at all. Can any of you help us out here? We don't know what to do next. Thanks.

LED RV Awning Party Light with Mounting Channel

Has anyone mounted LED rope lights under their awning on a 5th wheel trailer? As an aftermarket product how did you power it?
