I know somebody has already talked about this but I'm not sure if my 2006 Journey already has the Tric-L-Start system or if I need to install it myself. If I do have one, where is it located?

You will find it with the soleniods for battery controls and I believe you will have one on your coach. You can either check where the solenoids are located or look at the wiring diagrams on line for your model.

All I can say is you don't have one then get one, I have had the same one on 2 coaches for 6 years with no problems and no flat engine batteries.

Regards,

I think for some late models, it was an option. But it sure is a good solution for keeping the chassis batteries up and working.

In my 06' Meridian you open the front hood panel where the generator is. Straight in front of you is the panel for all the 12 volt circut breakers on the coach. Mounted to the wall right next to them is the Trik-L-Start. Very easy to see if you have one. I believe starting in the 06' model year it was standard equipment.

Thank you Sarge, thats the kind of information I needed. I've been looking through all of the manuels that came with my coach and still haven't found it.

Funny this should appear. I had an appointment two days ago to have some service done and guess what, dead batteries. Guess what the dealer suggested I install. He said he would do it for around 100 bucks so I said go ahead. Will pick it up this afternoon and I'll find out the real price.

Winnebago began making Trik-L-Start's standard equipment with the 2006 Model year.

In the BOLD section of the Winnie forum above, you will find an article about it.

Thanks Pusherman, I'm thankful for people like you who actually find and read the information and are able to pass it on.

Not all 2006's came with the Trik-L-Start installed. My 2006 Journey was an early 2006 and did not come with one, so I installed it myself.

If you look at the wiring diagrams on the Winnebago website you will see how they install them. Some people do not install it the same way, but hook it up directly between the batteries. The way Winnebago shows how to do it allows for it to in essence be disconnected when the battery disconnect switches are switched off. I bought mine from RV Upgrades, great service.

There was also a Winnebago service bulletin to dealers on how to install it as well. I believe it is now standard item.

The actual unit is located with the fuses behind the panel located just over the top of your generator in the front of the RV. It should be readily seen when you take the panel cover off, it is about 2" by 2" with a label on it.

The article under 'Service Tips' in the Winnie section in BOLD above states that all 2006 Winnebago's built on Freightliner chassis's have the Trik-L-Start as standard equipment.

So only the diesel pusher's have this option.

Also, I also suspect that when Winnie does a model year changeover, they don't make a clean break of what they do continue to add, or what they begin to add, as evidenced by this forum.

So I would not be a bit surprised that there are some 2006 DP's out there w/o the Trik-L-Start.
