How to use the motorhome awning
Motorhome Awnings extend from the Passenger side of the RV to provide protection from the weather. To use the RV Awning you must be parked with parking brake on, have your AUX Battery turned on, keys out of the ignition, and there will be a button by the entry door for the Awning. Some vehicles will have a manual awning. MAKE SURE THE AWNING IS CLOSED BEFORE DRIVING - KEEP THE AWNING CLOSED IN HIGH WINDS

Motorhome water connections

Potable Water: This connection is used to fill the fresh water tank. You have to use the Water Pump to use water from the tank City Water: This connection is used at the campground, City Water does not fill your tank and you must have the Water Pump OFF when using City Water

Santi Flush: This connection might not be labeled, it is used for washing the Black Waste Tank with clean water.

How to use the electrical system

The RV has two electrical systems that power different appliances in the RV. The 12 volt system is powered by the Aux Batteries. The batteries can be charged by running your Engine, Generator, or plugging into Shoreline Power. Never use the Generator while you are plugged into Shoreline. The Aux Battery is used to start the generator, while the generator is running it will charge your batteries and power the 110 volt appliances. The 110 volt system is powered by the Generator or plugging into Shoreline, the 110 volt is not stored in any way.

If the 12 Volt system is not working, make sure your Aux Battery switch is turned on by the entry door and charge the battery for at least 30 minutes, you should check the battery level every 6 hours and charge when necessary. If the 110 volt is not working, check the circuit breakers on the Generator or Shoreline connection, and in the fuse box located on the bed frame or dinette bench frame.

What are GFI outlets and how to reset them

GFI Outlets have a built in circuit breaker to protect the system if too much power is used. If your outlets are not getting power and you are using Generator or Shoreline power, the outlet in the bathroom will have the reset buttons to reset all of the outlets in the RV.

There will be a “TEST” Button and a “RESET” Button at the center of the plug. Push “TEST” first then “RESET”. If this does not work then you should check the circuit breakers on the generator or the campground shoreline post.

Where are the 110v circuit breakers?

The Furnace uses Propane (LPG) and the Aux Battery (12 volt) to heat the living space of the RV. The Furnace uses a lot of electricity and can drain your Aux Battery, it is important to check the battery level every 6 hours and charge when necessary. The Furnace will only blow air out of vents near the floor, it does not blow out from the ceiling. If the ceiling vents blow out air with the Furnace then you need to set the fan to “Auto”. If the Furnace is blowing Cold air then make sure you have propane and the tank valve is open. If the Furnace does not turn on, make sure your AUX battery is on and charged, you can also check the fuse box for a “Furnace” or “Appliance” fuse.

Smaller vehicles will have the thermostat near the bed, the top lever is used to turn the furnace on, the bottom lever is used to adjust the temperature control. The top “On/Off” lever can be hard to move so do not be afraid to push it hard to the left. For the furnace to be On, the lever must be straight up and down. For the Furnace to be Off the lever must be towards the right.

You may have a different type of Thermostat with only one lever on the top. Slide to the left turns it off, and to the right adjust the temperature until the furnace turns on.

Larger Class C RVs may have a digital thermostat. Pushing mode once will take you to the fan controls, push up or down with the arrows to adjust. Pushing mode again will take you to the Furnace and Air Conditioner settings. If the temperature does not adjust higher than 34 degrees then push the two arrow buttons together to change it from Celsius to Fahrenheit.

How to use the refrigerator.

The Refrigerator uses the Aux Battery to turn on the refrigerator and either Propane or 110v to keep your food cold. There are two settings, “gas” and “auto”, on the gas mode the refrigerator will use the propane (LPG) to cool, on “auto” it will switch between the propane and the 110v depending on what is available.

Dometic Refrigerator controls: The“gas” button selects between propane or auto, if the button is pressed in then the fridge is on auto and the “auto” light will be lit. If the check light is lit then there is an issue, check your propane, light the stove to bleed air from the propane line and turn the refrigerator off and on again. The light should go away.

Norcold Refrigerator controls: The “mode” button allows you to select between propane, 110v only, or auto. The “A” means the refrigerator is on Auto, the “plug” icon indicates the refrigerator is using 110v, if the 110v is turned off then the “A” will stay lit but the plug will not be lit and an Icon of “liquid” indicates Propane. The Green light indicates the refrigerator is working properly. The snowflakes indicate the temperature setting, more snowflakes means the refrigerator will get colder

The “plug” icon indicates 110v mode and the refrigerator will only use the 110v to cool. The red light indicates the refrigerator is not cooling, if on 110v, check your circuit breakers, if on gas, check your propane level and that the tank is open. Try turning the refrigerator off and back on.

The “liquid” icon indicates the refrigerator is only using propane and will not switch to 110v if you run out of Propane, this will only happen when on “Auto”

IMPORTANT NOTES FOR REFRIGERATOR OPERATION

The RV must be leveled when parked for the refrigerator to operate, failure to level the RV can cause major failure of the refrigerator.

The Refrigerator takes 6 hours to cool down, and must be empty for it to reach the proper temperature, then you can load your food.

Do not overload the refrigerator! There must be space between items for proper airflow

Never put hot food or drinks in the refrigerator

Avoid opening the door unnecessarily, this will cause the refrigerator to struggle to stay cold.

How do I adjust the side mirrors?

The side view mirrors need to be adjusted by hand. You will need to loosen a screw to move the mirror head, then tighten the screw to secure the mirror head. Tools Needed: 3/16 Hex Wrench

How to check the dual tire inflation.

Our RVs have dual rear tires, meaning there is two tires on each side for the rear. To check air pressure or inflate these tires, you will need to remove the plastic wheel cover. Look through the holes to find the valve stems, there will be one for each tire. The valve stems will always be diagonally across from each other. The inner tire valve stem will be facing towards you, the outside tire valve stem will be facing in towards the RV. Therefore you need an inflator with fittings on both sides (pictured below)

Tire inflation specifications can be found in the driver door frame. If you have trouble checking, or filling the tires, you can stop by a tire shop or truck rest stop for assistance.

How to use the transmission gear selector.

Pull the Gear selector towards you, and move it up or down to select a gear. The button at the end of the selector is for “Tow Haul”, this is only needed when towing a trailer behind the RV.

You can select between 7 different gears.

“P” = Park, the transmission is in neutral and the wheels are locked from moving

“R”= Reverse, to drive backwards

“N”= Neutral, the engine will not move the RV but the wheels are free to move

“D”= Drive, the transmission will automatically change between 1st and 4th gear and Overdrive (Overdrive is like a 5th gear)

“4” The transmission will automatically change between 1st and 4th gear, but will not go into overdrive.

“2” The transmission will not go higher than 2nd gear.

“1” The transmission will not go higher than 1st gear

Gears “1” and “2” are recommended to use when driving up or down a hill. This will reduce the need to use the brakes, as the transmission will naturally slow the vehicle down.

What type of fuel do I need to get?

All El Monte RV Vehicles use unleaded Gasoline only, NEVER USE DIESEL FUEL. Any octane 87 or higher is okay to use for the RV. Some states have 85 octane but this is not recommended to use.

Remember when you return the vehicle, it must have the same Gasoline level as when you picked it up.
