APPLIANCES AND SYSTEMS

2022 camper van owner’s guide

The appliances installed in your motorhome are manufactured by reputable RV appliance makers and have been tested by independent laboratories to meet all applicable standards and codes set for RV appliances.
See Section 2 – Safety and Precautions of this manual for any safety and precautions you need to take regarding the operation of your appliances.

REFRIGERATOR

The refrigerator in your motorhome operates from 12-Volt DC Electric. The unit will always run on 12-Volt when 12-Volt is available. When the coach disconnect is on, the refrigerator has 12-Volt power.
The 12-volt Converter will power the refrigerator when connected to 110-volt power.

WARNING
Do not let children play inside the motorhome unattended. Unlike your home refrigerator/freezer where one could push open the door from the inside, your motorhome refrigerator has a travel latch and when engaged would trap a child inside resulting in suffocation leading to death or serious injury.

Basic Operation

  • Turn the power on and set the thermostat between 3 and 4. Allow the refrigerator to cool down to temperature before placing food inside.
    NOTE: The refrigerator will retain temperature more efficiently if food is cold before placing inside.
  • To turn off the refrigerator, turn the thermostat counterclockwise past the click.

Further Information
Refer to the manufacturer’s user guide provided in your InfoCase for complete operating instructions, safety precautions, and maintenance information.

RANGE TOP

NOTE: See the appliance manufacturer’s guide provided in your InfoCase for complete operating instructions and safety precautions.

The range in your motorhome operates on propane gas and will provide most of the functions of the range in your home.

To Light Range Top Burners

  • Lift glass range cover.
  • Push and Hold the control knob down and turn it to the big flame symbol.
  • Continue holding the control knob down while pushing the electronic ignition button.
  • After ignition and the appearance of flames at the burner continue to hold the control knob down for another 8 seconds before releasing.
    NOTE: If the burner does not light within about ten seconds or if the flame should go out during cooking, turn the burner off. If gas has accumulated and a strong gas odor is detected, open a window and wait 5 minutes for the gas odor to disappear before relighting the burner.
    If the appliance has not been operated for a period of time, the surface burner may be difficult to light due to air in the gas line.
  • To extinguish the burner flame, turn desired burner knob to OFF.

Avoiding Asphyxiation
The following warning label has been located in the cooking area to remind you to provide an adequate supply of fresh air for combustion.

DANGER
Do not use gas cooking appliances for comfort heating. Can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning, which can lead to death or serious injury.

WARNING
Gas cooking appliances need fresh air for safe operation.
Before operating:
Open vents or windows slightly or turn on the exhaust fan prior to using the cooking appliance. Gas flames consume oxygen, which should be replaced to ensure proper combustion. Improper use can result in death or serious injury.

Unlike homes, the amount of oxygen supply is limited due to the size of the recreational vehicle, and proper ventilation when using the cooking appliances avoids dangers of asphyxiation.
It is especially important that cooking appliances not be used for comfort heating, as the danger of asphyxiation is greater when the appliance is used for long periods of time.
FAILURE TO COMPLY COULD RESULT IN DEATH OR SERIOUS INJURY.

SYSTEMS MONITOR PANEL

The Systems Monitor Panel provides a convenient central location for checking the condition of all utility systems in your motorhome.
At the touch of a button, this panel will display the holding tank level and the house battery condition. When operated, the indicator lights tell you that the water pump is on.

Holding Tank Level
Press and Hold the GRAY switch to show the approximate level on the monitor lights.
The approximate fluid level is measured by sensors on the sides of the tank. There is generally more fluid in a tank than indicated on the monitor panel.
For example, if the fluid level is 1-2” below the FULL sensor, the monitor will show the level to be only 2/3 even though the tank is nearly full.
If a tank is about 1/4 full, the monitor will register an empty tank because the fluid level is below the 1/3 sensor even though there is still fluid in the tank.
However, when the indicator reads FULL, the tank is actually full.

Battery Charge Meter
Press and Hold the BATT switch to check the level of charge (voltage) in the 12-volt house battery.

To get an accurate reading:

  1. Both the chassis engine and the generator engine must be shut off and the 120-volt AC shoreline unplugged.
  2. An interior light should be turned on to provide a small load which draws off the battery surface charge.

Additional Water Pump Switch Location
When use of the self-contained water system is desired, turn the “Water Pump” switch
on.Water will be available as soon as a faucet is opened. Refer to “Water Pump” for additional information on the water pump and initial start-up.
The switch has two locations, for convenience, one located on the Systems Monitor Panel, and the other on the Water Center Panel.

SOLAR CHARGE PANEL

The roof-mounted Solar Charge Panel uses the sun to help keep your house batteries charged. A Solar Charge Controller is located near the monitor panel to show you when the Solar Charge Panel is actively charging the house batteries.
The solar charging system installed in your motorhome has a maximum input rating of 30 Amps. Every solar panel connected to the system needs to be accounted for, this includes all roof-mounted panels and the ground-level single solar port.

Single Solar Port
The Single Solar Port (located at ground level) is for using a portable solar panel, it has a maximum input rating of 150 Watts. The Single Solar Port is connected to the coach batteries through the solar charge controller (located on an exterior sidewall or inside an exterior compartment, depending on model). When connecting a portable solar panel, a separate solar charge controller is not needed and will reduce the effectiveness of the portable solar panel.

PLUMBING

FRESH WATER SYSTEM
The Fresh Water System provides water to the galley sink and the wash station. Water may be supplied by the fresh water tank and water pump located within the motorhome.
The freshwater tank on your motorhome is filled using the Tank Fill or the Gravity Fill. Ensure that the tank drain valves are closed when adding fresh water to avoid draining.

Water Pressure Regulators
Because city water pressure varies from location to location, we recommend obtaining an in-line water pressure regulator to prevent damage to any components, connections, and seals in your freshwater system.
These devices simply connect in-line between the supply hose and the city water input on the motorhome. We recommend regulators that control water pressure to 50 psi. max.
Water pressure regulators are commonly available at most RV dealerships and many large retail discount or home supply centres.
Method 1 – Filling the Fresh Water Tank Through Tank Fill Connection

WARNING
Potable water only.
Sanitize, flush, and drain water tank before using.
See the owner’s manual for instructions, care, and maintenance information. Failure to maintain tank can result in death or serious injury.

Always fill the fresh water tank at an approved potable water filling facility or a known purified drinking water source.

The tank is filled through the Tank Fill Inlet located on the Water Center Panel behind the passenger rear door.

  1. Attach hose to the Tank Fill Inlet.
  2. Configure the Fresh Water Valve on the panel to the “Tank Fill” position.
  3. Use the level display on the passenger sink cabinet to oversee the filling of the tank, or when the tank is full, water will flow from tank vent tube beneath the motorhome.This display can also be used as a night light.
  4. 4. Turn OFF city water supply and disconnect hose from the Tank Fill Inlet.
    5. Set the Fresh Water Valve back to the
    “Normal” setting.

Method 2 – Filling the Fresh Water Tank Through Gravity Fill Connection
Always fill the fresh water tank at an approved potable water filling facility or a known purified drinking water source.
The gravity tank fill tube is located at the passenger side panel.

Insert hose into fill opening and turn water supply on. Tank is full when water flows from the tank vent tube beneath coach and out of the Gravity Fill door.

Using Tank Water (Gravity Fill)
Turn Water Pump switch ON. While the switch is on, the water pump will automatically supply tank water as needed.

ECO-HOT SYSTEM

(T36B Only)
When placed in the “Pre-heat” setting the Eco-hot System cycles water as it gets hot, to avoid wasting water into the gray tank. To operate, turn the water pump on, then turn the Eco-hot valve to the “Pre-heat” position. After approximately 6 seconds, the water should be hot. Then place the Eco-hot valve to the “Normal” position.

WATER PUMP

When your motorhome is not connected to a city water supply, water is supplied from the fresh water tank by a water system demand pump. A demand pump is designed to run only when you are using water. When you open a faucet, the waterline pressure drops and the pump begins to run, and it will continue to run as long as the faucet is open. When you close the faucet, the line pressure backs up to the pump, and it shuts itself off.
The pump is self-priming and will run briefly to build up line pressure when the Water Pump switch is first turned on. See “Initial Waterline Priming” for instructions on using the water system for the first time.

Water Pump Strainer
The pump is equipped with a cleanable strainer to capture any possible tank-borne particles that could damage pump components.
NOTE: We recommend that you check and clean the strainer after each tankful of water during the first few uses of the Water Pump system. Thereafter, remember to check it at least yearly, and be sure to empty water from it if using the blowout winterization procedure.

To Clean Pump Strainer

  • Ensure the Water Pump switch is OFF.
  • Twist the inlet cap (bowl) “counter-clockwise” to unscrew from the strainer assembly.
  • Remove the bowl and pull the strainer screen out of the bowl to tap out any particles and rinse clean.
  • Insert the strainer screen back into the bowl, then screw the bowl back onto the strainer assembly.

Water Pump Switch
The Water Pump switch is located on the top middle of the Water Center Panel behind the passenger rear door on both the T36A and the T36B. While the switch is “ON”, the pump will automatically supply water as it is needed.
Do not leave the pump on while away from your motorhome or while driving. In time, a slow leak in a faucet could drain the water tank, fill the holding tank, and discharge the house batteries.

Initial Waterline Priming 

  1. Ensure that all water drain valves are closed.
  2. Turn Water Pump switch to the “OFF” position.
  3. Fill water tank.
  4. Open the faucet.
  5. Turn ON the Water Pump switch.
  6. Close the faucet as it begins to deliver a steady stream of water.
  7. Check to ensure the Water Pump stops soon after the faucet has been closed.
  8. The Water Pump is now ready for automatic operation. The pump will start when a faucet is opened and stop when the faucet is closed.
