Splendide Washer Quit working

Posted 07-19-2022 at 07:57 AM by HiBanky

There are any number of things that can go wrong with a Splendide WD2000s Washer Dryer Combo. In this case, when the washer stopped in mid-cycle the settings knob rotated continuously and the “Status/Door Lock” light flashed twice every eight seconds. A quick search on the internet provided a service manual (TRAINMAN_Complete.pdf) that explained the flashing code and the procedure for testing various components. The flashing light code meant the motor had a problem.

Black water sensors sending false positives.

Posted 03-30-2022 at 04:20 PM by HiBanky

My 2005 Journey has external proximity sensors on the black water holding tank for detecting the waste water level. These are the black square stick on type with the white + sigh in the center. Like most other types of sensors they are susceptible to sending false positive signals when guck builds up on the inside of the tank. When chemicals, ice, and enzymes don’t do the job, I have the final solution to the problem.

Water Pump Running Continuously

Posted 11-17-2021 at 11:58 AM by HiBanky

In my 2005 Journey there is a SurFlow 3 chamber water pump that runs when the pressure drops below some predetermined point. The exact point is unknown to me but probably something like 20 to 30 PSI. If the system is tight, meaning no leaks at all, it will not come on without opening a faucet or flushing the toilet. If there is a tiny leak, it will come on briefly every hour or so. I lived with the tiny leak scenario for two years but then it began to run nearly continuously and air would spit from...

Broken Tri-Mark door handle

Posted 11-16-2021 at 02:24 PM by HiBanky

My 2005 Journey and probably many other RV has a Tri-Mark 17217 Exterior Door Latch. One sunny day I reach up and pulled the handle only to find it did nothing to open the door. No amount of fiddling around with it did anything to give me access to the coach. Fortunately I left a window unlock and with the aid of the ladder I left out, I manage to get inside to open the door. With out hesitation, I removed and disassembled the door handle and quickly found the cause.

New Springs for your Leveling Jack

Posted 11-15-2021 at 05:18 PM by HiBanky

One of the causes for leveling jack to retract slowly can be weak old return springs. HWH offers a replacement that has considerable more strength and can, when installed, improve the retraction time. These springs new and old have a good deal of energy stored in them so use extreme caution when extending and releasing them.

Be careful !!! If you are not completely confident you can do this safely, take it to a repair shop.

Installation requires some ingenuity but...
