alliance RV Valor 2021 DOT Tire Identification User Manual

alliance RV Valor 2021 DOT Tire Identification User Manual

DOT Tire Identification Number

  • This begins with the letters “DOT” and indicate the tire meets all federal standards. The following two digits are the plant code where the tire was manufactured. The last four numbers represent the week and year the tire was built. The other numbers have interchangeable meanings that are used at the tire manufacturers discretion. This # is also important in the event of a tire recall and used for that purpose.

TIRE INFORMATION & SAFETY (CONTINUED)

Tire Pressure

  • Follow the tire manufacturer’s inflation guidelines for maximum load capacity; under‐inflation is just as dangerous as over‐inflation. Proper inflation should be monitored closely. Failure to do so can result in the overheating of a tire causing a blowout. Inflation pressure should be as recommended by the tire manufacturer or as the federal label for the recreational vehicle indicates.
  • When you are using your RV, check inflation pressure weekly. Pressure should be checked when the tires are cold. Tires are considered cold when the vehicle has not been moved for a period of 3 hours or more. During travel, tires heat up and pressure increases. Do NOT adjust tires when they are hot.
  • Check your tire pressures at least once a month. Tires can lose air suddenly from road hazards. Tires also naturally lose air and it is not always possible to determine under‐inflation by visual inspection. Locate the recommended tire pressure, locate the Tire and Loading Information label for accurate settings. If the tire pressure is too high in any of the tires, slowly release air by gently pressing on the tire valve stem with the edge of your tire gauge until you get the correct pressure. If the pressure is too low, note the different between the measured tire pressure and the correct tire pressure. These “missing” pounds of pressure are what you will need to add. At a service station, add the missing pounds of air pressure to each tire that is underinflated. Check all the tires to make sure they have the same air pressure.
  • If you have been driving your vehicle and think a tire is underinflated, fill it to the recommended cold inflation pressure indicated on your vehicle’s tire information placard or certification label. While your tire may still be slightly underinflated due to the extra pounds of pressure in the warm tire, it is safer to drive with air pressure that’s slightly lower than the vehicle manufacturers recommended cold inflation pressure than to drive with a significantly underinflated tire. Since this is a temporary fix, don’t forget to recheck and adjust the tire’s pressure when you can obtain a cold reading.

WARNING
TIRE PRESSURE SHOULD BE CHECKED AT THE BEGINNING OF A TRIP. ALWAYS FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS ON THE FEDERAL CERTIFICATION LABEL FOR ESTABLISHED REQUIREMENTS.

WARNING
NEVER ADJUST TIRE PRESSURE TO A “HOT” OR “WARM” TIRE. ADJUSTMENTS ARE ONLY TO BE MADE AFTER THE TIRE HAS BEEN AT REST FOR 3 OR MORE HOURS.

Tire Size

  • Alliance RV uses a very robust Load Range G ST235/85R16 tire. Only purchase new tires that are the same size as the vehicle’s original tires. Look at the tire information label or the sidewall of the tire you are replacing to find the information. If you have any questions, please contact Alliance RV.

Changing a Tire

  • Keep the recreational vehicle attached to the tow vehicle. Block the tire on the opposite side of the recreational vehicle from the tire you are changing.
  • Loosen the wheel lug on the tire you are changing before jacking up the vehicle.
    (Note: DO NOT remove the lug nuts)
  • Locate the mainframe rail of the trailer (it spans from front to back just inside the tires).
  • To raise the recreational vehicle, place the jack (hydraulic or screw) under the main frame rail. It must be just ahead of the front tire or just behind the rear tire.

WARNING
NEVER USE THE LEVELING SYSTEM TO CHANGE A TIRE.
NEVER RAISE THE RV BY PLACING A JACK UNDER THE AXLE, AXLE SPRINGS OR ANY ATTACHED PARTS.

WARNING
BE SURE TO REPLACE TIRES WITH A TIRE OF THE SAME SIZE AND SPECIFICATION.

Properly maintained tires improve the stopping, traction, and load‐carrying capability of the RV. Underinflated tires and overloaded vehicles are major causes of tire failure. Always maintain your tires as outlined and make sure to NEVER exceed a vehicle’s load limits.

When pulling an RV, the most obvious thing is sheer mass. You’ll be taller, wider and much heavier. Allow yourself plenty of room and time to maneuver out of potentially difficult situations. Being taller, RVs are more susceptible to sway caused by cross winds and turbulence created by other large passing vehicles. Having the correct hitch equipment that is adjusted properly can significantly reduce these effects. Know the height of your RV. This will help in avoiding overhead obstructions such as tree branches, low building overhangs and low clearance bridges or overpasses. Know the width of your RV. This is important when negotiating, turns and other obstructions. Extendable side mirrors and/or add-on tow mirrors can help.
Know how much your RV weighs and be aware of the weight ratings of the RV. This information is available for your safety. It is critical to never overload your RV. Overloading adversely affects the towing and handling of your RV. Stay within the weight ratings and limits of your RV. A tow vehicle and RV weigh a lot and can take longer to stop. Increase your following distance and give yourself plenty of room and time to stop. Practice makes perfect. Get a feel for how the RV tows and handles. Especially if you are new to RVs.

BRAKE SYSTEMS

Brake Controller

The brake controller should be installed in the tow vehicle to work in conjunction with the RV brakes. Consult with your dealer or brake controller manufacturer to decide what is the right towing combination.

Inspecting Your Brakes

WARNING
FAILURE TO KEEP YOUR BRAKES IN PROPER WORKING CONDITION AS OUTLINED CAN CAUSE PROPERTY DAMAGE, SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.

Inspect for leaks and smooth operation. Clean with brake cleaner and flush with brake fluid. Check for cracks, kinks or blockages. Bleed the system to remove all air.
A simple visual inspection of your brake linings will tell you that they are usable. Replacement is necessary if the lining is worn to within 1/16” or less, or if found to be contaminated with grease, oil, or scored or gouged. Hairline heat cracks are normal in bonded linings and should not be cause for concern. When replacement is necessary, it is important to replace both shoes on each brake and both brakes on the same axle. This will help retain the balance of your brakes. Check all hardware. Check shoe return spring, hold down springs, and adjust springs for stretch or wear and have them replaced as required.
After the replacement of brake shoes and linings, the brakes must be re‐burnished to seat in the new components. This should be done by applying the brakes 20 to 30 times from an initial speed of 40mph. Slowing the vehicle to 20mph. Allow time for brakes to cool between applications. This procedure allows the brake shoes to seat into the drum surface.

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.

alliance RV Valor 2021 Hydraulic Disc Brakes User Manual

alliance RV Valor 2021 Hydraulic Disc Brakes User Manual

Hydraulic Disc Brakes

When equipped, disc brakes have a fixed caliper setup. This setup uses pistons situated on both sides of the rotor. During actuation, hydraulic pressure pushes against the pistons to apply the inboard and outboard brake pads equally to decelerate the spinning rotor. The caliper is fixed and stays stationary during brake actuation and brake adjustment. Brake pad to rotor clearance is maintained as lining wear occurs via the brake piston and internal caliper seal.

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.

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.alliance RV Valor 2021 Hydraulic Disc Brakes User Manual 06

BREAKAWAY SWITCH

The breakaway switch is a critical safety component of the RV brake system. You’ll find this located on or near the fifth wheel pinbox, if the fifth wheel and the tow vehicle become separated during towing, the line will pull the plunger out and immediately activate the trailer’s 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.

CONNECTING TO THE TOW VEHICLE

Pull Test

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 drawbar longer than 10 inches. The maximum length of the drawbar 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 SEVERE PRODUCT AND/OR PROPERTY DAMAGE, INCLUDING VOIDING OF THE WARRANTY.

HYDRAULIC LEVELING SYSTEM

Once you get where you’re 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.

Fire Safety

Safety is always important, whether you’re at home or on the road. As far as your RV, make sure to keep fire safety a top priority. **In a fire, evacuating all occupants from the RV safely MUST be your top priority!**.

Fire Extinguishers

Classified and rated by fire type, A, B and C. These classifications identify the kinds of fires or burning materials they are designed to fight. A: Trash‐Wood‐Paper – Effective against fires involving paper, wood, textiles and plastics. The primary chemicals used to fight these fires is monoammonium phosphate due to the chemicals ability to smother fires in in these types of materials. B: Liquids – Effective against flammable liquid fires. These can be fires where cooking liquids, oil, gasoline, kerosene or paint have become ignited. The chemicals used in this type of extinguisher are monoammonium phosphate and sodium bicarbonate which induces a chemical reaction which extinguishes the fire. C: Electrical Equipment: ‐ Suitable for fires in “live” electrical equipment. Both monoammonium phosphate and sodium bicarbonate are used in this type of extinguisher due to their nonconductive properties.

WARNING
NEVER TEST OR PRACTICE USING A FIRE EXTINGUISHER BY SQUEEZING THE TRIGGER. THESE ARE NON‐RECHARGEABLE AND ONCE USED, PRESSURE WILL DECREASE OVER TIME AND WILL NOT BE FULLY FUNCTIONAL IN AN EMERGENCY.

WARNING
WHILE USING A FIRE EXTINGUISHER, ALWAYS KEEP YOUR BACK TOWARD A CLEAR PATH FOR EXIT.

WARNING
DO NOT TURN THE ELECTRICAL POWER BACK ON AFTER THE USE OF AN EXTINGUISHER.

WARNING
INSPECT EXTINGUISHERS WEEKLY. IF YOUR RV HAS BEEN IN STORAGE, INSPECT IT BEFORE THE RV IS USED. ALWAYS INSPECT YOUR BEFORE A VACATION OR TRIP WITH YOUR RV.

Fire Extinguishers

A common acronym for proper fire extinguisher operation is P.A.S.S.

  • Pull the pin
  • Aim the nozzle (always aim at the base of the fire, not the flames)
  • Squeeze the trigger
  • Sweep from side to side

For additional information on fire extinguisher operation, please refer to the fire extinguishers user’s manual.

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 maintenace 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.
  • Don’t 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.

PROPANE SAFETY

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.

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.

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.

alliance RV Valor 2021 Traveling with Propane User Manual

Traveling with Propane

Turning the propane off when traveling is always safer, it reduces the risk of a gas leak from a line or connection working loose. Some states have laws against traveling with propane on. Make sure you are familiar with those laws and regulations in the area you are traveling.

WARNING
MAKE SURE ALL PROPANE TANK FASTENERS ARE SECURED BEFORE TRAVELING.

LP Automatic Changeover Regulator

To regulate the propane pressure, an RV is equipped with a two‐stage regulator with automatic changeover. With the first stage of the regulator, the fuel coming from the tank is reduced by venting from the high pressure the LP is compressed under for storage and takes it down to 10 to 15 psi. In the second stage, the pressure is reduced again by further venting down to 11” water column which is the pressure safe for the appliances that the propane system powers. Always make sure that the vents are clean and unobstructed.

LP Automatic Changeover Regulatoralliance RV Valor 2021 Traveling with Propane User Manual 01

alliance RV Valor 2021 Traveling with Propane User Manual 02

This regulator allows for the removal of empty cylinders for refill without interrupting the propane supply and will automatically switch from the supplying tank to the reserve tank when empty.

WARNING
PROPANE CONNECTIONS SHOULD BE CHECKED PERIODICALLY AS VIBRATIONS FROM TRAVEL MAY CAUSE THEM TO LOOSEN. FAILURE TO CHECK THESE CONNECTIONS COULD LEAD TO A PROPANE LEAK. A LEAK CAN CAUSE A FIRE OR EXPLOSION.

alliance RV Valor 2021 Traveling with Propane User Manual 01

Propane System Maintenance

Routinely visually inspect your propane cylinders, mounting hardware, supply lines, and connection points for wear, rust, kinks or damage. The propane system should be serviced by a qualified technician immediately upon an issue being identified. Never paint propane cylinders, valves or mounting hardware. Your RVs propane system should be inspected by a certified professional at least once a year. Never attempt to repair any propane-related component yourself. Always make sure your RVs fire extinguisher, CO, gas, and smoke detectors are in working order. Do this by regularly testing your alarms and safety items. An alarm or extinguisher that is not working should be replaced immediately.

WARNING
NEVER ATTEMPT TO REPAIR ANY PROPANE-RELATED COMPONENT. ENSURE THAT ALL ALARMS, DETECTORS, AND EXTINGUISHERS ARE IN GOOD WORKING ORDER.

Filling Your Propane Tanks
Your Alliance RV uses DOT cylinders. These cylinders can be removed and taken to a propane dealer for refilling. A propane tank can only be filled to 80% of its total capacity. The remaining 20% is for expansion that takes place when subjected to heat. If a tank is filled to 80% when it is cold outside, that same tank may be at 90% on a much warmer day. Always ensure that the tank is filled to the required limit only.

In‐Wall Electric Slide out Troubleshooting

The electric slide-out requires a minimum of a 30‐amp circuit breaker. Check the 12‐volt distribution center for blown circuit breakers and replace any if necessary. If the circuit breaker blows immediately upon replacement, there is a problem with the wiring to slide out the controller. Check outside the RV for obstructions. Check inside the RV for any obstructions. Also, check for smaller objects that may be wedged under the floor or in the sides of unit. Remove any obstructions that exist. Check the sides of the slide room for any dirt or debris. Small dirt clumps or metal shavings can cause the spur gear to bind up and stop the slide out from moving. Use an air compressor or a dry brush to remove any dirt or debris from the rack before attempting to use slide out again. During operation when an error occurs, the board will use the LEDs to indicate where the problem exists (shown below).

alliance RV Valor 2021 Electrical Overview User Manual

alliance RV Valor 2021 Electrical Overview User Guide

Electrical Overview

Your RV has a 12‐volt electrical system and a 120‐volt system. The 12‐volt system is powered by battery and powers items such as the water heater, furnace, and refrigerators, as well as most of the lights. Water pumps, carbon monoxide detectors, and a number of other items will also be powered by the 12‐volt system. You’ll also find that Alliance RV has a conveniently color-coded and numbered 12‐volt wiring system. The 120‐volt system is powered by an electrical source via your power cord, a generator and in some cases, an inverter (which converts 12 volts to assist in powering the 120-volt system), and typically powers kitchen appliances, TVs, and other electrical appliances. Alliance RV is compliant with industry standards applicable at the time the RV is manufactured. Do not make unauthorized changes.

WARNING
CHANGES OR ADDITIONS MADE AFTER DELIVERY MAY RESULT IN HAZARDOUS CONDITIONS. ALWAYS HAVE A PROFESSIONAL WORK ON YOUR RV.

Modifications to the RVs electrical system should only be performed by qualified technicians and should never be made without approval from Alliance RV. Should a modification be made, those changes MUST comply with current safety and code requirements.

WARNING
USE THE CATION WHEN USING METAL TOOLS. IF A TOOL CONTACTS A BATTERY TERMINAL OR METAL CONNECTED TO IT, A SHORT CIRCUIT COULD OCCUR AND CAUSE INJURY.

Before working on the electrical system:

  • Make sure the inverter (if equipped), is turned off before disconnecting the batteries.
  • Disconnect the power cord.
  • Turn off the generator (if equipped) and disable the auto start function (if equipped).
  • Turn off the battery disconnect switch.
  • Turn off the 120‐volt AC main circuit breaker.
  • Disconnect the negative 12‐volt DC battery terminal from the battery.

Power Converter

The INTELI‐POWER series converter will supply “clean” power from input voltages that range from 105 ‐ 130VAC. The INTELI‐POWER series of converters are primarily designed for use with a battery; however, the output of the INTELI‐POWER converters is a regulated, filtered DC voltage that can power sensitive electronics without the need for a battery or other filtering. At normal input voltages (105 – 130VAC) the full load-rated capacity is available. At input voltages less than 105 VAC the converter may not supply full rated output capacity.alliance RV Valor 2021 Electrical Overview User Manual 01

PD4500 Series ‐ The full rated load is available for load, battery charging or both. When functioning as a regulated battery charger the converter has a nominal voltage output of 13.6 VDC. The system is designed to sense voltage on the battery and automatically selects one of three operating modes (normal, boost and storage) to provide the correct charge level to the batteries.

Power Control Center

  • NORMAL MODE: Output voltage set at approximately  VDC.
  • BOOST MODE: If the converter senses that the battery voltage has dropped below a preset level the output voltage is increased to approximately 14.4 VDC to rapidly recharge the battery.

Energy Management System

Energy Management System (If so equipped)

The Intellitronix Energy Management System combines a standard breaker box with automatic power management for use in a recreational vehicle. It automatically senses and shifts AC loads to best utilize the available power. It decides what AC circuits get power based on user priority settings. For example, if someone is using a hair dryer and running a microwave oven and toaster, and the refrigerator starts running, that may temporarily be more power than is available, potentially causing a main circuit breaker to trip, or overloading a generator. The Intellitronix Energy Management System can temporarily shut down the refrigerator power. When enough appliances are turned off, and sufficient power is available, refrigerator power is automatically restored. It also functions as a standard breaker box using standard breakers and wiring.

alliance RV Valor 2021 Inverter – If So Equipped User Manual 03Automatic Transfer Relay

The PCL inverter chargers are equipped with a 30A transfer relay switch that switches between Inverter and Standby mode depending on the availability of AC input power. If AC is present, the transfer relay bypasses up to 30A of the incoming AC power through the inverter to power the AC loads on the inverter’s output. In the event AC power gets disconnected, the inverter will power the loads through the battery bank.

Auto Generator Start

The PCL inverter charger series have functions to automatically start and stop a generator for supplementing charge. The Auto Generator feature starts the Generator with the use of Normally Closed (NC) contacts of the relay that “opens” when the battery voltage drops to the programmed value of Program 96, Low Battery Voltage Set‐point. The Normally Open (NO) relay “closes”, and the auto generator starts commencing the generator to start charging the battery bank. When the battery is recharged and its voltage rises to the programmed value of Program 95, High Battery Voltage Set‐point The NC (closes) contacts and NO (opens) contacts of relay reset and the Generator will stop/shut down the Generator automatically. The PCL unit will then transfer back to “Inverting Mode”.
Note: While the generator is connected, the unit now operates in “Charging Mode” with the AC power from the Generator charging the batteries as well as providing power to the AC loads.

Starting the Generator

  1. Visually inspect for fuel and/or exhaust leaks. Do NOT start the generator until any fuel or exhaust leak is repaired.
  2. Position and hold the control switch to START until the generator starts. The status indicator on the switch flashes while cranking. It will stay on continuously when the generator set is running.
  3. If the generator fails to start, cranking will stop in approximately 30 seconds. The status indicator will blink, indicating an over crank fault. Wait 5 seconds for the control to reset before trying again. After 5 tries, let the starter motor cool down for 30 seconds before trying again.
  4. For top performance and engine life, especially in colder weather, let the engine warm up for 2 minutes before you put a load on the generator.

 

  1. Turn off your air conditioners and any other large appliances.
  2. Run the generator for 2 minutes to allow for cool down.
  3. Press the control switch into the STOP position.

The Load on the Generator

The power rating on the generator nameplate determines how much electrical load (motors, fans, heaters, air conditioners and other appliances) the generator can power. If the sum of the loads exceeds the generator set power rating, the generator will shut down or its line circuit breakers will trip.
To avoid shutdowns due to generator overload, use the electrical ratings from each appliance to compare the sum of the electrical load likely to be used at the same time to the generator rating. Appliance load and generator power are measured in terms of watts or kilowatts. 1 kilowatt = 1000 watts.

Typical Appliance Loads:

Exercising your Generator

Your Generator should be exercised at least 2 hours a month if use is infrequent. Run your generator at approximately ½ rated power. A single 2‐hour exercise period is better than several shorter periods. This action helps drive off moisture, lubricates the engine, replaces stale fuel in fuel inlets and removes oxides from electrical contacts and generator slip rings. The result is better starting, longer engine life and greater reliability.

Resetting Line Circuit Breakers

If a generator set line circuit breaker or a circuit breaker in the power distribution panel trips, either a short has occurred or too many loads were connected.
If a circuit breaker trips, disconnect or turn off as many electrical loads as possible and reset the circuit breaker. If the circuit breaker trips right away, either the appliance (or electrical load) has a short or the circuit breaker is faulty. You should immediately schedule a service for repair. If the circuit breaker does not trip right away, reconnect loads one‐by‐one making sure not to overload the generator or cause a breaker to trip.

 Using Your Gas Range

  • Using proper flame size: adjust the flame so it does not extend beyond the edge of utensils. Undersized utensils will expose a portion of the burner flame to direct contact and may result in the ignition of clothes. Proper utensil and flame size will improve efficiency. Burners are different sizes for different utensil sizes. The furniture above hobs has the potential risk during gas range working.
  • If you use a stovetop grill on a sealed gas burner, it will cause incomplete combustion and can result in carbon monoxide poisoning.
  • Know which knob controls each surface burner. Place a pan of food on the burner before turning it on, and turn the burner off before removing the pan.
  • Always turn the knob to the full HI position when igniting top burners and visually check that burner is lit.
  • Then adjust the flame so it does not extend beyond the edge of the utensil.
  • Utensil handles should be turned outward and not extend over adjacent surface burners. This will help reduce the risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, and spillage due to unintentional contact with the utensil.
  • Never leave surface burners unattended at high heat settings: Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite.

How to Use the Top Burners

Gas flow to the burners is adjusted by turning the knobs that control the valves. Turning the knob so that the indicator line points to the symbols printed on the panel achieves the following functions:alliance RV Valor 2021 Microwave User Manual 02

  • When the knob is rotated to the maximum position it will permit the rapid boiling of liquids, whereas the minimum position allows the simmering warming of food or maintaining boiling conditions of liquids.
  • To reduce the gas flow to a minimum, rotate the knob further counter‐clockwise to point to the LO position.
  • Other intermediate operating adjustments can be achieved by positioning the indicator between the HI and Lo positions, and never between the HI and OFF positions.
  • When the range is not being used, set the gas knobs to their OFF positions and also close the gas shut‐off valve placed on the main gas supply line.

 Lighting Gas Burners

In order to light the burner, you must:

  1. Push and turn the knob in a counterclockwise direction up to the HI position (maximum rate), push in and hold the knob until the flame has been lit. The sparks produced by the internal igniter will light the designated burner.
    Note: In the event that the local gas supply conditions make it difficult to light the burner in the HI position, try again with the knob in Lo position.
  2. Adjust the gas valve to the desired position.
    Note: To re‐light, the burner, return the knob to the OFF position and repeat the operations for lighting.

Waste Water System

The waste system contains holding tanks. The quantity of tanks along with the location is dictated by the floor plan of the RV. All tanks are equipped with electric heating pads that can be controlled in the monitor panel.

  • Black tanks hold toilet waste. There are some things to note with black tanks. Black tanks typically will need a digester/deodorant (talk with your RV dealer for recommendations). Black tanks require RV toilet paper. RV toilet paper breaks down quicker and is specifically designed for this type of waste water system. You’ll find that this toilet paper breaks down more quickly and allows the waste water to flow more easily during the dumping process. A black tanks monitoring electronics can be adversely affected by debris handing up on the reading probes. For this case, we have installed a tank flush for your black tank(s) to assist in keeping the probe indicators clean so that you have accurate readings on the tank’s levels.
  • Gray tanks, an integral part of the waste water system. Gray tanks hold your sink and shower waste water. Gray tanks require less maintenance due to the difference in waste produce making its way into the tank. It may be ideal to dump black tanks first and then your gray tanks, the gray tank running thru the main dump will help in keep the pipeline cleaner.

Toilet
Alliance RV uses the best-in-class 310 series Dome tic RV toilet. Each toilet is 100% factory tested to assure watertight seal in the toilet bowl before it even leaves Docetic. After installation by Alliance RV, the entire waste system is flood tested for leaks by filling the system with water to the rim of the bowl. To use the toilet, first add water to the toilet by pressing the flush pedal only partially down. Water will flow into the bowl while the flush ball remains closed. If the flush ball moves, let up

Toilet slightly on the pedal until the ball closes. Adding water to the empty bowl acts as a trap and helps prevent holding tank odors from entering the RV. Adding water is always recommended prior to flushing solids and/or toilet paper.
To flush the toilet, press the pedal down until it contacts the floor. Release the pedal after the flush is complete. When flushing liquids, quick press of the pedal for 1 to 2 seconds will do. When flushing solids, the pedal should be pressed until the contents are rinsed from the bowl. Never flush longer than needed as this will cause the holding tank capacity to be used up and require more frequent black tank dumps. A small amount of water should collect in the bowl after a flush, this will create an airtight seal. Further instructions and information can be found in the toilet owners’/users manuals.

Dumping Your Waste Tanks

Your RV is equipped with cable termination valves. Most of these valves are going to be routed to the centralized docking station convenience center for ease of pulling. However, in some occasions, dictated by floor plan, you may find a gate valve pull handles located on the off‐door side frame rail of the RV.

alliance RV Valor 2021 Waste Water System User Manual 01Monitoring Your Water Systems

This panel monitors the fill levels of the fresh water, grey water and black water tanks. You will also operate the heaters on the holding tanks here and as well as the power to the fresh water pump (you’ll also find a water pump switch in the exterior docking station) and the water heater. These switches will illuminate while in the on position.alliance RV Valor 2021 Waste Water System User Manual 02

When an individual button is pressed (box 2), the lights above the switch (box 1) illuminate to reveal the level of the selection pushed. For the battery level indicator, the individual letters mean the following:

  • L = Low at 6.0 volts
  • F = Fair at 11.6 volts
  • G = Good at 12.1 volts
  • C = Charge at 12.7 volts

The water pump is operated with the water pump switch (box 4) as well as the gas and electric options for the water heater (box 5). The gas water heater switch enables propane operation of the water heater while the electric switch enables electric operation of the water heater. Both switches being on will allow for a quicker hot water recovery. The water heater can be operated in electric or gas only by turning one of the individual switches on.
Note: The holding tank heaters will also be operated from the monitor panel (box 3).

Washer / Dryer Prep

The washer/dryer prep is located in the front closet or garage of the 5th wheel. You will find both hot and cold water connection points. Should a washer and dryer be your desire, please consult with your dealership or Alliance RV for our installation recommendations. Otherwise, you will find functional cabinet space in that area.
