Technical Support / Transmission Pad - Patriot won't start
« Last post by Randy Stephenson on July 18, 2024, 02:47:15 AM »
I removed the chassis and house batteries and repainted the battery tray, and installed new house batteries ( I had the chassis batteries tested, they are at 13 volts and passed a load test).  I took before pictures, therefore, I am confident the cable connections are correct.  Also, have photo of Steves batteries for reference.

Now, when turning the key it does not start; the Drive, Neutral, and Reverse buttons are not lighting up (if I hold down the Neutral bottom down, it will light up and then turn off).  The mode red light is on, however, there s a symbol in the upper window that I do not recognize.  Please see attached photo.  Has anyone seen this symbol, if so, is it related to the no-start issue?

For your A/C cover on your coach I believe you have a pair of Dometic penguin duo therm A/C units you will have to verify this.
Those units are out of production and parts are hard to come by but there is a Canadian company that produces the upper shroud for them
The Company's name is Icon direct.
The price seems high but when you work out the US to Canadian dollar exchange rate you will be presently surprised at or near 35%
I have a pair of these on my coach and they fit a little tight getting them on but they have been up there now for five years and still look great

Here is a link to the covers.

Hope this helps

Regarding RV windshield and window shades, try looking in Amazon using this search argument, "rv windshield shades".  There you will find both interior and exterior shades.  I prefer shades on the exterior of the windshield and windows to stop the sun's heat before it enters the coach.

Another idea, depending upon the thickness of your wallet, is Magne Shade.  These are held in place on the exterior of the windshield with very strong magnets.  Unlike the snap-on exterior shades we have, the Magne Shades are mounted from the ground using a telescoping cane to lift the shade up to the pre-affixed magnets located on the inside of the glass.

It's better to use a cover on the outside of the windshield as it will reflect or stop the sun and heat before it gets inside the coach.

You can buy replacement covers for the AC units, just need to identify which covers you need.  From the factory they are not rechargeable, but you can add saddle valves if you are familiar with AC units.

 I am not sure what deflectors you are referring to.   

For the generator you will need to see what code it shows.  Check on line for how to find the code.  I am guessing you have the Onan 7.5 QD.

As for the TV there are numerous mounts that will fit and let you swing the TV out.  Mine is mounted on the original TV cabinet.  I screwed 1 inch thick oak boards to the inside of the cabinet and mounted the bracket where the TV covered the opening.  Its rode that way for over 10,000 miles.
