Trailers for Sale / Re: Only one light will come on

What everyone else said. About aluminum particles short circuiting switching. Last year, even after 6 years of ownership, one of my ceiling lights that I hadn't removed and checked for particles, started flickering. Yessir, it was those darn aluminum molecules...GK

What Merlin said there is a master ceiling on/off switch in addition to the individual ceiling light switches.  Mine is by the door under the counter near the slide control switch.

The light over the sink is the only one not on the master switch, so it will come on even when the master is off. There is a master light switch, somewhere near the door, that got turned off and unless that's on, no other lights will work with the switches at each fixture. That's my guess........

Well, even LED lights sometimes burn out. And while you are checking it, check for aluminum particles in the fixture that were left by the factory, although those usually work the other way- they turn the light on when the switch is off.

Hello,
I have a 2014 RDB and can not get all of the lights to come on, they use to all work. One light over the sink works but no others come on. Fuse looks good. Any suggestions would  be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance...

Glad and amazed you found that old post. I still think it was and is the best solution to the problem. Versatile and stable under all conditions. The photo looks very familiar  :D

Here is a photo of the current setup. We decided to go with the xtend & climb wt3 as Charlie suggested. It is much sturdier than the platform step that we have been using. We moved the camper off the driveway in order to accommodate all the construction vehicles. Leveling brought the floor height up a few inches, so the first step is still high. Our 21RBS came with a folding handrail that I assume was standard equipment, so we’re just being careful. Thanks to all for your suggestions. I suppose I need remedial archive search lessons since I was unable to find all the old threads on this subject.

I found good reviews for Walex Bio-Active liquid and it’s available for reasonable prices at several RV suppliers. I ordered a half gallon which will be enough for this season.

The Thetford stuff I mentioned in the first post is back in stock in some places, but now more than twice the cost of the Walex.

Livin Lite General Discussion / Re: Issue with new Honeywell thermostat
« Last post by Merlin on April 10, 2021, 11:10:04 PM »
I might be off topic but, I had issues with our furnace not igniting, the fan would run but no burner. Sometimes it worked, sometimes not? Thought it was the thermostat, it wasn’t. There should be a black reset toggle switch inside the exterior access cover, try that to see if it will ignite a little better? Ultimately ours had a faulty limit switch. The furnace was replaced curtesy of LL. Works perfect now.

The external furnace intake/exhaust is located on a black panel that's held on with 4 screws....probably #2 square drive. Remove that panel and you'll be into the furnace burner area. On the inside of the camper opposite the external part will be an access panel of Azdel. Remove that and you'll have access to the blower area for cleaning. It's a mess because LL apparently didn't own a vacuum cleaner.  :o I hope a complete inside/outside cleaning will help it run reliably. All of the RV furnace manufacturers have their owner's manual on-line. Some are snotty and don't post the full repair manual, but it's findable for them too.
