What Exactly is the “Crucial Engine Break-in Period”

A major advantage to buying your new Winnebago from Lichtsinn RV – the #1 Winnebago Dealer in North America is our proximity to Winnebago’s Motorhome Division in Forest City, Iowa. Our dealership is located 1 mile from Winnebago Industries, so if you buy a Winnebago from Lichtsinn RV you don’t have to worry about whether a delivery driver ate, drank, or lived in your brand-new RV before you could.

A dealer that is more geographically proximate to you might not tell you about how crucial the first 1,000 miles is for engine break-in because your Winnebago could arrive with 1,000 miles or more on it before you even step foot inside the coach. Winnebago and the chassis manufacturers have recommendations for breaking in the engine. When you purchase from Lichtsinn RV you can control the critical break-in period and not leave it up to a delivery driver towing their personal vehicle across the country.

The manufacturers recommend –

  1. No towing for the first 1,000 miles
  2. No full throttle starts for the first 1,000 miles
  3. Use varying speeds every couple hours to seat the cylinders in the new engine

When you purchase a Winnebago from a geographically proximate dealer, the Winnebago was driven, by a transport company, from the motorhome factory in Forest City, Iowa (where Lichtsinn RV is Located) to the dealer. While your RV is in transport, the driver will often tow a personal vehicle behind it – violating the manufacturers’ first recommendation for engine break-in protocol. As for the other two – no full-throttle starts and using varying speeds – you can not be certain that good or safe driving techniques were employed during the transportation process.

Winnebago Revel in Transport

At Lichtsinn RV, you will not have to worry about how your engine will be broken in because you will be the one doing it!

  2. Run your generator! Minimum of 2 hrs every month under load

  4. Inspect/service all major appliances

  5. Take care of your chassis
    1. Oil Change requirements are not only based on miles, but time
    2. Tire pressures (Nitrogen for your tires or Multi Seal can help maintain this)
    3. Transmission service 30K or 3yrs
    4. Rear axle 50k or 5yrs

Top Questions from our Webcast on WiFi and Cellular Boosters

RVers increasingly are looking for technology that enables them to stay connected to family and friends, work remotely, or stream media. So we covered the options for WiFi and cell boosters in one of our webcasts. Below are the top questions from our webcast. We also created a step-by-step tutorial on how to choose a wifi, cellular or combined wifi and cellular booster for your coach. See it here.

WATCH OUR LIVE WEBCAST ON WIFI AND CELL BOOSTERS HERE

What is the best way to stream Netflix, Hulu, etc. on your RV TV?

There are a couple ways of streaming onto your TV. One of the easiest ways of doing this is using an adapter from your smartphone, tablet or computer and connect it to your TV utilizing an HDMI cord. There are also separate devices, like Blue Ray players, already connected to your TV with streaming services built in. Most Blue Ray players that come with Winnebago’s RVs have streaming services like Netflix and Hulu built in. The third way is an adaptor that is plugged into the HDMI port with the streaming services built in. Examples of these are Amazon Fire Sticks, Google Chromecast, Roku stick, and Apple TV. These range from $39.99 for the firestick to $149.99 for the Apple TV.

What considerations with the weboost you have to take into account with shorter coaches?

With the WeBoost 4GX the amplifier connects to the internal antenna and needs to be far enough away from the external antenna to prevent oscillation, but very close to the objects you are trying to boost. So a shorter coach can prove to be difficult.

Is there an additional monthly fee for the Winegard Connect 2?

There is not an additional fee if you use your own SIM card, however, if you don’t you can purchase data through Winegard.

Are there options to boost over-the-air TV options?

Yes, if you have an older coach with an older Winegard antenna you can add the Winegard RV-Wing Wingman to boost your over-the-air reception.

If someone primarily uses their computer to stream videos are they better off buying a WiFi booster or a combined WiFi and 4G Booster?

It depends on where you are planning on RVing. If you are planning on primarily staying in campgrounds with WiFi a Wifi Booster will probably be sufficient, but if you are planning on staying off-the-beaten path in campsites
