Thank you, Dan. I can 100% agree with your first shock already. It's been a fire hose of a learning curve already. It sounds like I'll be working on pulling the furnace out today, blowing it out and seeing if that fixes the ignition issue. I've pre-emptively ordered a replacement thermostat as well that I've seen referenced in another thread on this forum.
We're in Tucson, AZ and initially will stay close. Our first outing will likely be at a state park just a few miles away for one or more test runs. There's so much to see right here in AZ that I imagine we'll keep many of the trips here in the state. There's always one of our favorite weekend getaways -- the Grand Canyon.
Some other things I've noticed as I work my way around the camper:
1) The battery is only 2 years old but I'm not sure how well it's doing. I got it fully charged and was surprised to see it mostly drained after not much more than an hour. May need replacement. Longer term, maybe a dual battery setup? I have proactively ordered LED bulbs to replace the halogen bulbs to reduce the power draw.
2) I hooked up a garden hose to the fresh water supply port and it doesn't seem to accept any water. I don't hear it filling and the indicator panel continues to show that it is at the lowest indicator level. I'll need to pull the bench panel to visually verify water level. Unsure as to why it wouldn't take any more supply at this point. It appears that there is a flow/pressure restricter on the input. Maybe that's the issue?
3) I'm told the microwave works on an extension cord. It doesn't work in the supplied outlet. Need to multi-meter the outlet and replace if needed. The upstream breaker is not popped.
4) The entertainment system could use a replacement. Several parts aren't functioning. I imagine these days we could reduce the physical footprint of the stereo down to a double DIN... but that means redoing some of the cabinetry work.
I think I just bought myself a long list of todos but I look forward to the memories we can create by taking family out to surroundings they're not used to
What have you done to your 139?
