Is the drain closed. If it and the water still runs replace the valve

The big question is HOW you get and feed '7 Mbps' (minimum) INTERNET speed NEEDED to watch Foxtel Now' to your Foxtel box? (This is your question asked another way)...

A 'DISH' INTERNET' service 'should' do it, BUT that WILL be "VERY expensive" because VIDEO usually takes GIGABYTES of bandwidth = HIGH costs to do so!...

"Some" link VIDEO/TV via a cellphone connection with "unlimited data"... NOW things become in focus... NOT cheap I know... but neither is getting 'serviced' by a Dish company!

In theory.. as long as you get a cellphone dial tone you get 'Unlimited' Internet Data....

EASY WAY... dump and rinse your grey tank "thoroughly"!

Now refill with fresh water "to the max"... Using a 5 gallon "Jerry can", see how many times you had to empty same?

Now rinse your Jerry well...

You are asking about a Camper made 13 years ago...


RVs | Answered on May 18, 2019

TRUTH IS... too many CAMPER/TRAILER installations (like yours) are installed with no documentation and no schematics! YOU need a 'electrician-like' friend with a ohm meter, a voltmeter and probably a ladder... PLUS the willingness to track bad circuits down.

Too many "installs", upgrades etc happen MOSTLY because of "demand" and USUALLY WITHOUT documentation! Too often "things change" and so do plans (schematics) AND the actual parts used as well as wiring and connections!

Start at your control switch(es)... is voltage is there? If so, are the switches still 'good'? DO they still provide voltage to the "other side" of the switches? Many times weak (under powered) switches are installed and after a year or two... (maybe five)... they fail! They may look perfectly OK "outside"... but internally remain 'open'... and don't let a switch 'snap' fool you.

SO many things can go wrong! Now "Backtracking" and fixing requires time and patience... Often testing and searching reveals other problems about to happen,,, so fix them too.

So you see, asking for schematics/wiring for a "2005 Camper" is asking A LOT because then (like now) SO MANY 'things' change ~ from the drawing board to the finished item!

In example, I doubt if your awning was 'stock'?

As always, because it's mostly "low voltage" wiring, few agencies care until a camper burns down and lives are lost.

Example.. I bought a 2008 motor home (Harvest) and trust me.. SO many "things" were "CAMPER company" installed! This was especially true with the Onan generator and it' starting and stop switching... So I didn't dare go anywhere without a multi-meter, Romex and wire connectors to troubleshoot and bypass as needed.

Wish I could be more helpful to you, but I urge you to look at the 'big picture'...Ask a retired electrician or even a ham radio operator to help! Later IF the "tech" drew out a schematic or wiring diagram... it MAY help you (or a mechanic on the road) to quick troubleshooting!

Search online for the slide mechanism's manufacturer. They often will have troubleshooting or service guides, even videos to help. Also check at Keystone's website for help.

I think you are correct. Check for bare wires that may be shorting out. Here is a video on where the motor is and the resistor.

Depends where it is and who fitted it.

Sometimes these valves are identified by the color. Grey for grey and black for black. Another way to tell is that most of the time the black fittings and pipes are larger than the grey. Look at your plumbing underneath the unit at the dump valves. The valve that accepts the larger pipe will most likely be the black.

Check in your basement under the slide outs. Often there is a manual screw where you can put a socket wrench on and you can manually bring the slide out in. Check to see if battery is at full charge and all connections are clean and rust free. Also insure your ground wire is clean and well grounded. A good first start.

The cover is often held in place with screws that might be covered by the carpet nap. Carefully search for the fastenings. You could also check at the Winnebago website for the PDF owner's manual for your RV or contact Customer service.

Your question and facts are a bit terse. Usually when shore power is present you can leave both house and chassis batteries connected so they are charged/maintained by your charger/converter. Using a multimeter, test all parts of the 12v circuits to be sure the converter/charger is outputting at least 13v to house and chassis batteries.
