Electric Drum Brakes

The electric drum brakes on your RV are similar to the drum brakes on an automobile. The basic difference is that your automotive brakes are actuated by hydraulic pressure while your electric trailer brakes are actuated by an electromagnet.alliance RV Valor 2021 Wheel Nut Torque User Manual 02

Electrical current is fed into the system by the controller, it flows through the electromagnets in the brakes. The electromagnets are energized and become magnetically attracted to the rotating armature surface of the drums which moves the actuating levers in the direction that the drums are turning. This force causes the actuating cam block at the shoe end of the lever to push the primary shoe out against the inside surface of the brake drum. The force generated by the primary shoe acting through the adjuster moves the secondary shoe out into contact with the brake drum.  Increasing the current flow to the electromagnet causes the magnet to grip the armature surface of the brake more firmly. This results in increasing the pressure against the shoes and brake drums until the desired stop is accomplished.

SUSPENSION EQUALIZER SYSTEM

Introduction
Equipped with dual 6,000 lb. Dexter Axles, a MORryde CRE3000 Suspension System and upgraded Wet Bolt Kit w/ heavy duty shackle links, you will find that this set up will give you smoother towing than a conventional equalizer and leaf springs and better protection of your RV from damaging road shock.
The CRE3000 is located between the tandem axles, replacing the steel equalizer (see below). Designed uniquely to work with your steel leaf spring suspension to improve overall towing performance.alliance RV Avenue 2021 SUSPENSION EQUALIZER SYSTEM User Manual4

CRE3000 Rubber Shear Spring Inspection

The rubber springs should be periodically inspected for deterioration. If the tabs that protrude from either side of the spring carrier are touching the top of the beam arm, the spring rate of the spring has been affected and the equalizer should be replaced. NOTE: It is normal to see rubber spring weather checking, which is small surface cracks in the rubber, and does not require replacement. It is also common to see minor tearing or cracking of the rubber around the edges.alliance RV Avenue 2021 SUSPENSION EQUALIZER SYSTEM User Manual2

HD Shackle Links and Wet Bolt Kitalliance RV Avenue 2021 SUSPENSION EQUALIZER SYSTEM User Manual4

The axles and suspension systems are installed with heavy-duty shackle links and greaseable “wet” bolts with bronze bushings for enhanced durability and less maintenance.

BREAKAWAY SWITCH User Instructions

The breakaway switch is a critical safety component of the RV brake system. You will find this located on or near the fifth wheel pin box, if the fifth wheel and the tow vehicle become separated during towing, the line will pull the plunger out and immediately activate the trailers brakes. Always make sure your breakaway switch is in working order. To test your breakaway switch, while the RV is still hitched to the tow vehicle, disconnect the tow plug from the vehicle and then pull the breakaway pin out, only to the first stage, and you should hear the brakes engage.

CAUTION
NEITHER THE BREAKAWAY SWITCH NOR THE TRAILER BRAKES SHOULD EVER BE USED AS A PARKING BRAKE.

CAUTION
ENSURE THAT THERE IS ENOUGH SLACK IN THE BREAKAWAY SWITCH CABLE TO ALLOW FOR TIGHT TURNING RADIUSES.

TOW PLUG Owner’s Guide

alliance RV Avenue 2021 SUSPENSION EQUALIZER SYSTEM User Manual6

The tow plug (7-way wire harness) is wired to your RV to connect electrical power from the tow vehicle for the RV brakes, taillights, clearance lights, turn signals, and brake lights. The wiring to operate your brakes must be the same size in both the tow vehicle and RV. Regularly inspect your tow plug for corrosion and build-up, and clean as needed. If damage is noticed, have the tow plug repaired by an authorized RV technician.

PIN BOX MAINTENANCE 2021 RV Manual

  • Regularly inspect the kingpin for excessive wear.
  • Inspect the skid plate for a neutral/centered position.
  • When the trailer is disconnected from the tow vehicle, an equal gap of approximately 1-1/4” should be between the lip of the skid pad and the rubber compression bumpers. It is normal to be able to slightly move and twist the skid pad assembly with hand force.alliance RV Valor 2021 Hydraulic Disc Brakes User Manual 08
  • Inspect the retainment rods for excessive wear.
  • Inspect the plastic glide pads for excessive wear. The pad should be no less than ¾”
  • Periodically check hardware torque values.
  • Check and grease bearing(s) once per season. If more grease is needed, add it to the bearing assembly.

WARNING
DO NOT MIX LITHIUM, CALCIUM, SODIUM OR BARIUM COMPLEX GREASES. MIXING OF THESE CAN CREATE A CORROSIVE TOXIC CHEMICAL WITH FUMES THAT CAN RESULT IN SERIOUS HEALTH ISSUES.

WARNING
THE RV BRAKE SYSTEM IS DESIGNED AND RATED FOR THE GVWR OF THE RV, NOT THE GCWR OF THE TOW VEHICLE.

WARNING
WHEN POSSIBLE, ENSURE THAT YOUR HOLDING TANKS ARE EMPTY DURING TRAVEL. FULL HOLDING TANKS CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT THE TOWING OF THE RV.

WARNING
ALWAYS MAKE SURE THE PROPANE IS OFF WHEN TOWING THE RV.

Hitch Receiver

If equipped with a factory hitch receiver, you can tow an additional small trailer behind your RV (if wiring is not included it must be added if a trailer will be towed), such as a boat. Do not use a draw bar longer than 10 inches. The maximum length of the draw bar is from the center of the fastening pin to the center of the ball. The maximum trailer tow rating of the hitch receiver is 3,000 lbs. with a maximum hitch weight of 300 lbs.
The receiver can also be used for a storage rack, bike rack or similar. The cargo weight carrying capacity includes the weight of the cargo carrier and should never exceed 300 lbs. Laws around double towing and overall towing length vary depending on where you live. Consult the appropriate authority for local towing resections in your area.

WARNING
DO NOT EXCEED THE MAXIMUM LOAD OR HITCH WEIGHT RATING OF ANY HITCH KIT. EXCEEDING MAXIMUM LOAD OR WEIGHT RATINGS CAN CREATE A HAZARDOUS CONDITION THAT MAY RESULT IN POSSIBLE DEATH, SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY OR SEVER PRODUCT AND/OR PROPERTY DAMAGE, INCLUDING VOIDING OF THE WARRANTY.

ELECTRIC LEVELING SYSTEM

Once you get where you are going, you will need to level your RV. Before you operate the leveling system, make sure that the RV is parked on a level surface and not attached to the tow vehicle.

NOTE: Never level the RV with anyone inside.

WARNING
WE RECOMMEND THAT A TRAINED PROFESSIONAL CHANGE THE TIRES ON YOUR RV. THE RV SHOULD ALWAYS BE PROPERLY SUPPORTED WITH JACK STANDS. ATTEMPTS TO CHANGE TIRES OR PERFORM OTHER SERVICE WORK BY THE LEVELING SYSTEM ONLY COULD RESULT IN DEATH OR SERIOUS INJURY.

Jack Operation Owner’s Manual

Landing gear (front jacks) can be operated any time the system is “ON.” By pushing the “FRONT” button (Fig. 1G), both front jacks can be extended. By pushing either the “FRONT” and “LEFT” (Fig. 1H) or “FRONT” and “RIGHT” (Fig. 1I) buttons, the individual front jacks can be extended. If the touchpad is put in the retract mode, indicated by the orange illuminated LED next to the “RETRACT” button (Fig. 1D), the front jacks can be retracted together by pushing the “FRONT” button (Fig. 1G) or individually by pressing “LEFT” (Fig. 1H) or “RIGHT” (Fig. 1I) buttons, while simultaneously pressing the “FRONT” button (Fig. 1G).
Middle jacks, if equipped, cannot be extended, or retracted in standard mode or manual mode. Middle jacks can only be operated in the special jack code error mode. In order to operate the middle jacks press the “LEFT” (Fig. 1H) and “RIGHT” (FIG. 1I) buttons simultaneously.

The rear jacks can only be extended when the touch pad is in manual mode. Once the system is in manual mode, pressing the “REAR” button (Fig. 1J) will extend both rear jacks at the same time. To extend individual rear jacks, press the “LEFT” (Fig. 1H) or “RIGHT” (Fig. 1I) buttons while simultaneously pressing the “REAR” button (Fig. 1J), depending on which jack needs to be operated. If the touch pad is put in the retract mode, indicated by the orange illuminated LED next to the “RETRACT” button (Fig. 1D), the rear jacks can be retracted together by pushing the “REAR” button (Fig. 1J) or individually by pressing either the “LEFT” (Fig. 1H) or “RIGHT” (Fig. 1I) buttons, while simultaneously pressing the “REAR” button (Fig. 1J).

Note:
If the rear jacks will not operate individually using the method described above but operate properly when Auto Level is performed, the Twist Prevention Protection system has locked out the operation to prevent damage to the frame of the trailer.

WARNING
Be sure to park the trailer on solid and level ground. Prior to operation, clear all jack landing locations of debris and obstructions. The locations should also be free of surface depressions and moisture. When parking the trailer on extremely soft surfaces, utilize load distribution pads under each jack.

CAUTION
People and pets should be clear of the trailer while the leveling system is operated. Never lift the trailer completely off the ground. Lifting the trailer so the wheels are not touching the ground will create an unstable and unsafe condition.

Unhitching From a Tow Vehicle
Note: Prior to unhitching from the tow vehicle, ensure the trailer is parked on a level surface, and be sure to chock the tires of the trailer.

  1. Extend the inner legs of both landing gear (front jacks) to within 4-5″ of the ground by pulling on the quick-release pins.
  2. Push “ON/OFF” (Fig. 1K). LCD Screen will light up and display “READY JACKS: UP” (Fig. 2A).
  3. Push the “UP” arrow (Fig. 1A) to scroll to the “Drop Front Jacks” option on the LCD screen.
  4. Red indicator lights (Fig. 2B) may come on, indicating the current disposition of the trailer. In this case, the front and right sides of the trailer are low.
  5. Push “ENTER” (Fig. 1C). Both front jacks will go to the ground and stop.
  6. Push the “FRONT” button (Fig. 1G) extending the front jacks to a sufficient height, which raises the front of the trailer off of the tow vehicle’s fifth wheel hitch plate.

Propane (LP) Alarm Maintenance

Test all alarms weekly. Vacuum the dust off of the alarm cover. If cleaning is needed, clean with a water damp cloth. Do NOT spray cleaning agents or waxes directly onto the front panel. This can cause damage to the alarm.

WARNING
THE CO ALARM WILL NOT OPERATE WITHOUT BATTERIES.

WARNING
NEVER ATTEMPT TO REPAIR AN ALARM, IMMEDIATELY HAVE THE ALARM REPLACED.

EXTENDED RECREATIONAL USE OF THE RV
In some cases, you may find yourself in the RV for extended periods of time. Whether that be full time living, a long weekend or an extended stay, you may run into some challenges. We have put together some helpful tips for battling some of these challenges.

Condensation & Mold

The normal living activities of even a few people in an RV can lead to rapid moisture saturation of the air inside the RV as well as accelerated wear and tear. This condensation, if left unaddressed, can lead to mold. A more aggressive maintenance schedule may need to be adopted. Below are some pointers to assist with some of the problems you may face while using the RV for extended periods of time.

  • Use a dehumidifier.
  • Use exhaust fans when showering and cooking.
  • In warmer temperatures, use your air conditioner.
  • Crack windows.
  • Do not air-dry clothes in the RV.
  • Implement proper preventative maintenance and overall RV cleanliness.

WARNING
CONDENSATION MAY CAUSE DAMPNESS, MILDEW AND MOLD. IF NOT ADDRESSED IMMEDIATELY, CAN RESULT IN DAMAGE AND POSSIBLY LEAD TO ADDITIONAL MOLD OR MILDEW ISSUES WHICH CAN BE HAZARDOUS TO YOUR HEALTH

Exterior Plumbing

Alliance RVs are equipped with heating pads for the holding tanks and a dedicated heat vent to drop air down into the underbelly. Depending on your needs, it may be necessary for you to take additional protection steps. Keeping your water running and the additional use of heat tape on pipes, hoses, fresh water, and sewer lines will all assist in keeping your RV safe from damage during use in freezing temperatures. If your RV will not be used in cold weather, ALWAYS have your RV winterized (covered in the plumbing section of this manual).

Formaldehyde

Formaldehyde is used in many products such as glues, fabrics, paint coatings, and even paper products. Formaldehyde is also released from many smoking, cooking, soaps, and many other household products. While most of the formaldehyde used in products in construction is consumed during the manufacturing process, a very small amount remains. This leftover formaldehyde dissipates over time as it works its way out of the product. Proper ventilation by way of the available vents, fans and air conditioning units in your RV is key. If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact Alliance RV.

About the Propane System

The propane system provides heat, hot water, fuel for cooking, and refrigeration and can be used for other small appliances.
The propane supply for an RV is stored in a DOT cylinder that is positioned vertically upright and mounted outside the living space of an RV. Repair and/or replacement should always be done by certified service technicians. Make sure your propane system is inspected at least annually by a certified service technician. They are trained to detect incorrect tank pressure, leaks, or other potential hazards and address them properly. Do not connect your propane system to another gas source or attempt to repair any propane-related component yourself.

WARNING

IF YOU SMELL PROPANE:

  • EXTINGUISH ANY OPEN FLAMES INCLUDING PILOT LIGHTS AND ALL SMOKING MATERIALS.
  • SHUT OFF THE PROPANE SUPPLY AT THE LP CONTAINERS.
  • DO NOT TOUCH ELECTRICAL SWITCHES.
  • OPEN DOORS AND OTHER VENTS.
  • LEAVE THE AREA UNTIL THE ODOR CLEARS.
  • THE PROPANE SYSTEM SHOULD BE CHECKED FOR LEAKS AND THE SOURCE DETECTED AND REPAIRED BEFORE USING THE RV AGAIN.
  • FAILURE TO COMPLY COULD RESULT IN AN EXPLOSION RESULTING IN DEATH OR SERIOUS INJURY.

WARNING
NEVER USE AN OPEN FLAME TO TEST FOR A PROPANE LEAK. DO NOT CHECK FOR LEAKS USING PRODUCTS THAT CONTAIN AMMONIA OR CHLORINE, THESE PRODUCTS CAN CAUSE CRACKS TO FORM ON METAL COMPONENTS IN THE PROPANE SYSTEM. A SOLUTION OF WATER AN MILD SOAP SHOULD BE USED BY SPRAYING THE FITTINGS AND CONNECTION POINTS DOWN AND WATCHING FOR BUBBLES.

WARNING

  • DOT PROPANE TANKS MUST BE TRANSPORTED AND STORED IN AN UPRIGHT POSITION SO THE PRESSURE RELIEF VALVE CAN FUNCTION PROPERLY. LAYING A TANK ON ITS SIDE MAY CREATE A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION.
  • THE LP PIGTAIL HOSE MUST BE INSTALLED IN A MANNER TO AVOID TENSION OR STRESS AT EITHER END OF THE HOSE. KEEP THE PIGTAIL AWAY FROM SHARP EDGES, RIGID CORNERS, WALLS, AND DOORS.
  • BEFORE ENTERING A PROPANE FUEL SERVICE STATION MAKE SURE ALL PILOT LIGHTS ARE EXTINGUISHED. SHUT THE GAS TO ALL APPLIANCES OFF BY TURNING OFF THE PROPANE AT THE GAS SHUT-OFF VALVE(S). ALWAYS SHUT OFF ANY ENGINE BEFORE REFUELING. DO NOT SMOKE AND NEVER OPERATE IGNITION SOURCES WHILE REFUELING.
