    Has anyone ever had a problem with their power bunk bed in the cab. Well I did.
    While lowering it the last time, it looked as though one side lowered faster and was at least 4 inches lower than the other when it got hung up and stopped.
    I searched online for information and found a manual on the Schwintec Bunk Lift. It explained how to put the bunk lift in electronic manual override using the Bunk Bed Controller. I followed the direction and was able to get the bed all the way up (both sides equal) and then lowered it (both side equal).
    Please don't forget. It is so important to NOT release the raise/lower switch for at least 2 seconds after the bed stops moving, up or down. This helps realign and sync the motors on both side, and keep them that way. This is true for the slide motors, as well. I hold those switches for 4 or 5 second. (I have two slide-outs).

    I'm a very happy person today!

    Last month I took a trip to Kentucky and discovered my front thermostat kept blowing the 2 amp fuse inside, whenever the compressor attempted to turn on. After metering the voltage outputs of both the thermostat and the A/C unit(I was following a trouble shooting flowchart for the thermostat, I found online), the chart suggested a new thermostat.
    I wasn't very confident that replacing it would work. My coach is just over a year old. I've read in other online places that these thermostat are cheap.
    Well, I installed a new one I ordered off Amazon and IT WORKS!!

    Hope this helps, if you ever have this issues.

    I'm going to upgrade my auxiliary battery system and add 2 more, giving me a total of 4. Can I expect to have to order some sort of additional wiring? If so, what? Is there any followup with regard to any systems running off this battery upgrade?
    Lastly, what's the best battery to work with the factory batteries, for this upgrade?
