Lichtsinn RV – the Largest Winnebago Dealer in the USA

 

The Lichtsinn RV Experience starts from the moment you pick up the phone or chat with us online and extends throughout the lifetime of your RV ownership. Your dedicated Lichtsinn RV Sales, Service and Parts team members will support you along every step of your RV journey.

We are proud to have been named by Winnebago Industries as the Top North American Winnebago Dealer for the past 5 consecutive years. 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019. This means Lichtsinn RV has sold more Winnebago Motorhomes than any other Winnebago dealership across the entire country.

But what does this really mean to you?

For those that haven’t visited our dealership before, we are located in Forest City, Iowa, just 1 mile from the Winnebago Factory. We are in a small town, in northern Iowa. Some may ask, how is it possible that the top selling Winnebago Dealer in North America is located in such a small town?

For those that aren’t familiar with Lichtsinn RV, they might think this is due to location. We are just 1 mile from the Winnebago Factory, so new Winnebago Motorhomes purchased from our dealership come with no delivery miles or tow car stress on them. We do not use delivery services like other dealers in which drivers live in the RV during transportation. No one will eat, drink or live in your new investment or tow their own personal car with it during the manufacturer recommended crucial break in period.

However, No Delivery Miles is just one of many reasons why people travel across the country to purchase their motorhome from Lichtsinn RV. Additional reasons our guests say they travel across the country to Lichtsinn RV include:

  1. Winnebago is the only new line of motorhomes we carry, so our entire team, from sales to parts to service, specializes in Winnebago product. Our factory trained sales and service teams receive regular Winnebago product training and are afforded the opportunity to review new product and model year changes up front. We are specialists in Winnebago product. When spending that much money on an RV, wouldn’t you want a team that can help answer any questions you have before, during and maybe most importantly, after an RV purchase?
  2. We include a half-day Educational Orientation with every RV purchased from Lichtsinn RV. Many dealers charge up to $600 for this, however, we provide this complimentary as we feel you’re making an investment, we want you to know how to use it! During this Educational Orientation we will ensure you know how to use your RV by covering each switch, feature and all maintenance and warranty items. We encourage our guests to stay at our campgrounds at least one night after they have purchased an RV. We have electrical hookups on site and then we are just outside your doorstep the next day to answer any questions that may have surfaced overnight.  Use of our campgrounds is complimentary to guests who are here to purchase an RV or are here for an RV service appointment.
  3. Being located just 1 mile from the factory, many of our guests enjoy taking a Winnebago Factory Tour while they are here to see how their RV was made and see the quality craftsmanship that goes into each and every Winnebago motorhome. The Winnebago Factory Tour is held April-October. Reservations outside of this timeframe can be made directly through a Lichtsinn RV Sales Consultant.
  4. Then there is the final item, Price. Lichtsinn RV has cost efficiencies over other dealers that allows us to provide up-front, no-hassle pricing. We work with several National Lenders to provide you the best rate and terms on your RV purchase. There are no additional fees to purchase an RV in Iowa as you will pay the tax and license fees in your home state. Many of our guests without a trade, find that they can fly here and purchase an RV for significantly less than they can their local dealer.

 

The above reasons are just a few of why guests throughout the USA and Canada come to Lichtsinn RV for their RV Purchase, many traveling thousands of miles, making Lichtsinn RV the Top North American Winnebago Dealer. However, don’t take our word for it, see what our guests have to say about their experience with our 5 star reviews on Facebook and Google.

How to Winterize a Winnebago View

Your motorhome is equipped with a manually operated waterline winterization system for your convenience in winterizing fresh waterlines. The system features a Winterization (diverter) valve with an antifreeze siphon tube to draw nontoxic RV water system antifreeze into the waterlines. There is also a Water Heater Bypass valve to avoid filling the water heater with antifreeze. Leave Water Heater Bypass valve in NORMAL FLOW position if draining water and blowing out waterlines. Place in BYPASS position ONLY when using antifreeze solution in waterlines.

Watch our video on how to winterize a Winnebago View here. 

  1. Level the Motorhome. If the motorhome is not level, there may be “low points” in waterlines that can trap water in the lines and prevent it from draining properly.
  2. Drain Fresh Water Tank and Waterlines. Open all waterline drain valves and drain fresh water tank.
  3. Drain Exterior Shower/Wash Station. Open exterior shower knobs and lay shower head on ground to drain any water left in the shower line. Also, place the tip of your finger into the city water inlet and gently press the backflow valve “button” in the center of the inlet to drain any water trapped in the inlet line. Remove Water Filter
  4. Cold Water Filter: Remove the filter canister from the Cold Water Filtration System under the galley sink and discard the filter cartridge. After emptying the canister, remount it onto the filter assembly and continue the Antifreeze Fill Procedure.
  5. Drain Water Heater (Tankless): Turn the Water Heater Power Switch (located behind water heater access panel on exterior of the motorhome) to the OFF position and allow hot water to cool down.
  6. Open the latch with your thumb while pulling the Easy Drain Lever down as far as it will go.
  7. Remove the water inlet filter and clean with clean water. Leave the water filter inlet removed until the Winterization process is complete or the system is placed back in use. Set Up Winterization Valves
  8. Turn Winterization Valve 1 to BYPASS position (to avoid filling water heater with antifreeze). Water Heater Power Switch (Located behind water heater access panel on exterior of the motorhome) Easy Drain Lever (Located behind water heater access panel on exterior of the motorhome) Latch Easy Drain Lever
  9. Remove and save the protective cap from the end of the antifreeze siphon tube (save cap to cover tube after use.)
  10. Insert the end of the siphon tube into a pail or container with 2 to 3 gallons of non-toxic RV antifreeze solution.
  11. Turn Winterization Valve 2 so that it points to Winterize (Syphon). NOTE: Ensure that all drain valves are CLOSED before pumping RV antifreeze into the water system. Fill Lines.
  12. Turn the Water Pump switch ON.
  13. Open each hot and cold water faucet handle/ knob in the motorhome – one at a time each in turn until antifreeze solution just begins to flow from the faucet, then close. Do not forget exterior shower/wash station knobs (if equipped).
  14. Press the toilet flush pedal and hold until antifreeze begins flowing into the toilet. Leave a small amount of antifreeze that remains in the bowl.
  15. Turn Winterization Valve 3 from “Normal” position to “Line Drain” position to allow water and antifreeze to flow through the recirculation line. Note: antifreeze will drain outside of the coach during this step.
  16. Turn Water Pump switch OFF.
  17. Turn Winterization Valve 3 to “Water Heater & Line Drain” position to allow all remaining water and antifreeze to leave the system. Leave the valve in this position until the Winterization process is complete or the system is placed back in use.
  18. Turn Winterization Valve 2 so it points toward Normal. This will stop the flow from the antifreeze siphon tube and revert the tank line flow to the water pump.
  19. Replace the protective cap onto the end of the antifreeze siphon tube to keep out insects or debris when not in use. Fill Drainage System P-Traps
  20. Pour about one cup of RV antifreeze down each drain for the galley sink, lavatory sink, and shower/tub. This fills the drain trap pipes to prevent holding tank odors from entering the motorhome during storage. Dump and Clean Holding Tanks
  21. Completely drain the sewage and waste water holding tanks at an approved waste disposal site. Drain the sewage tank first so the following waste water can rinse any waste solids from the dump outlet and sewer hose.
  22. Close dump valves and refit the dust cap onto the drain outlet. This will inhibit rust formation on valve shafts and prevent entry and contamination by airborne debris, insects, and rodents.

Lichtsinn RV Receives Customer Satisfaction and Sales Award From Winnebago Industries

Why Buy from Lichtsinn RV?

Lichtsinn RV Featured in RV Pro’s “All in the Family” Edition

Lichtsinn RV – Celebrating 40 Years Selling Winnebago Motor Homes

 

In 2019, Lichtsinn RV celebrated a milestone, 40 years selling Winnebago Motor Homes. What began as “Lichtsinn Motors” in the mid-70’s, a GM dealership, quickly expanded to what it is today, Lichtsinn RV, the Top North American Winnebago Dealer.

Lichtsinn RV

The origins of the GM dealership began in the Mid-70’s when it was purchased by Ron Lichtsinn Sr.. The dealership continued to grow as a GM Dealership and sold John Deere Tractors for a short period of time as well. Then, in 1979 after a conversation and a handshake between Ron Sr. and John K. Hanson (Winnebago Industries’ Founder) Lichtsinn Motors began its RV history and started selling Winnebago Conversion vans.

The Winnebago side of the business continued to grow during the next many years and achieved the Flying W Award (previously called the Circle of Excellence Award) in 1994. The Dealership has achieved this award each year since that time for over 26 years. This award signifies service excellence and superior owner satisfaction.

In 2001, Lichtsinn Motors was purchased by Ron Sr.’s son, Ron Lichtsinn II and his wife, Hope. The dealership continued to grow during the next several years achieving the position of the largest Motorhome Dealer in the state of Iowa in 2001, awarded by Statistical Surveys Inc., a title which it retains to this day.

In 2004, Lichtsinn Motors purchased the former Winnebago Industries Home Office, across the street from the Lichtsinn Motors Dealership. This building was almost entirely torn down to create the new Lichtsinn Motors RV Sales Office.

Lichtsinn RV Sales Building

Over the years Lichtsinn Motors was awarded by Winnebago Industries with many sales and parts award achievements. The Lichtsinn Motors reputation continued to grow across the Country as a leader in the RV Industry. Their focus of providing guests Industry leading service, coupled with a strong Internet presence and investment in technology, led the dealership to navigate through the challenging years of the recession of 2008. The slogan “In the town know for building Winnebago’s, we’re the dealership know for selling them” was adopted.

In 2014, Lichtsinn RV built a new state-of-the-art RV Sales, Parts and Service building in the former Lichtsinn RV Sales property. This expansion allowed the Lichtsinn RV Sales, Parts and Service Departments to sit under one roof, providing a seamless transition from each department to the Lichtsinn RV customer.  The new building boasted 5 Service Bays, a large indoor RV Parts and Camping Accessories Store, a spacious Service Check-In Area, a Video Production Studio, Indoor Delivery and Service Drive Area and a Guest Lounge equipped with the latest technology. During this time the name of Lichtsinn RV became the business name for the RV side of the business.

Lichtsinn Motors (dba Lichtsinn RV) divested of the GM business in 2015 to focus solely on the Winnebago Motorized Business. During this same year Lichtsinn RV also added 3 additional Service Bays to better service guests needs.

Each year since 2015 Lichtsinn RV has been award the Top North American Winnebago Dealer by Winnebago Industries.

In 2017, Lichtsinn RV achieved the Clean Auto Alliance’s Environment and Safety Elite Award. With the receipt of this award Lichtsinn RV joined a select group of automotive, truck and equipment dealerships and service companies that have demonstrated dedication to excellence in regards to overall concern for their community, their employees and their customers. In order to achieve this award Lichtsinn RV participated in a rigorous review process and proved adherence to industry best practices in all six program categories, including: Safety Systems, Environmental Systems, Hazard Communication, Loss Control, Emergency Response, and other Facility Specific Requirements.

Over the years Lichtsinn RV has been featured in numerous print and Video publications including the Des Moines Register, RV Pro, Going RV and More.

Lichtsinn RV Team

Lichtsinn RV has always made a priority of charitable giving. From working with the Iowa Lottery in the 90’s, working with FEMA in 2005 providing Travel Trailers to those displaced by Hurricane Katrina, working with the Make-A-Wish Foundation and many more organizations. In 2009, the Lichtsinn Family We Care Charitable Giving Foundation was established as the giving arm of Lichtsinn RV. Since its inception over $150,000 has been donated to various organizations through the program. The Program was revamped in 2019 to allow Lichtsinn RV Team members to collectively select 3-5 organizations annually that Lichtsinn RV will provide an employer match to any employee donations. Previous organizations who have benefited from the We Care Charitable Giving donations have included: The Forest City Community School District, The Lake Mills Community School DistrictThe Forest City YMCA, Local Student Sports Teams, The Forest City Education Foundation, Hospice of North Iowa and The American Cancer Society. Through this program we have also been privileged to contribute to: The Boman Fine Arts CenterThe Forest City Aquatic Center, Westown Place Apartments, The Forest City Fire Department and Emergency Services Center, Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office and more.

Why Winnebago: Rotocast Holding Tanks

Winnebago has several manufacturing methods that cause customers to choose Winnebago over other RV manufacturers. One method is Winnebago’s rotational molded components manufactured in our Rotocast facility. Having the ability to manufacture components like water tanks, luggage compartments, heat ducts, and wheel wells in our own facility lets us maximize space, ensure optimal weight distribution, and make spare parts available years down the road. Rotocast Facility

In the Rotocast facility, polyethylene powder is placed into specially shaped molds. These molds are heated, changing the powder to liquid, rotated to distribute the liquid evenly, and cooled to produce the hardened seamless parts. Winnebago produces more than 3.5 million pounds of rotocast goods annually, each component designed to precisely fit its specific application. And because we own the molds, we know parts will be available for years to come.

EasyStart Soft Starter for RVs

Imagine an engine that can run but not start your car for example. What good is that? LRA is the problem the EasyStart solves with generators, inverters and other power sources. Most small generators and inverters placed in RVs are large enough to run and air conditioner. But RVers complain about the big and heavy generators for the split second needed to start an A/C unit. With EasyStart, the user can both run and start on lesser power. And it does that at the time when you need it most, in high humidity and temperatures.

The EasyStart makes for gentle ramping of your air conditioner’s compressor engine when starting. If you are not convinced, Google our loyal following’s online comments. Works with every RV rooftop air conditioner.

How Can EasyStart Help on Your Next RV or Marine Trip?

  • Starts your A/C without having to buy a second or bigger generator
  • Runs 2 A/C on 30-Amp power
  • Silences the bumps in the night. Sleep with less noise and cool all through the night
  • Runs your A/C with more appliances at the same time without worry

The Winnebago Revel Air Conditioner…The Story

Why Winnebago: Steel Corrosion Protection

Winnebago utilizes extensive amounts of steel in the manufacturing of their motorhomes for strength and durability. It is critically important to Winnebago to protect the steel against corrosion using an electrocoating or e-coating process. This system is unique to Winnebago and keeps Winnebago best-in-class in quality.

Watch our video on the e-coating system here.

E-Coating Process

Critical steel structural components are processed through a multi‑stage full immersion electro­coating (e-coating) system. E-coating is also used by leading automotive companies to protect their vehicles from corrosion. The e-coat system processes pieces and parts through a 10-stage, full-immersion electrocoating system. The first 7 stages are used for pre-treatment and involve cleaning, treating (with a nano-ceramic conversion coating) and deionized for conductivity. The final three stages are used for the e-coat and rinse cycles. Electro-deposition is accomplished by charging the components with electricity, and then paint film is bonded to the body to a desired thickness. Many of our competitors apply a simple spray-on paint that doesn’t reach or protect nooks and crannies.

Winnebago’s e-coating process provides owners a quality advantage and extends the life of their motorhomes. It is just another reason why Winnebago is better than the rest.
