The U-Shaped Dinette can be converted into a sleeping space and there is storage below each dinette bench. Footrests bookend each of the ends of the U-Shaped Dinette.

As you think about a motorhome, one of the many conveniences a motorhome provides is a mobile bathroom. The bathroom in the Winnebago View and Navion has been recently redesigned.

Winnebago View and Navion Bathroom

We have listed the top 10 features found in each of the bathroom layouts in the 3 Winnebago View and Winnebago Navion floorplans.

  1. RETRACTABLE SELF-CLEANING SHOWER SCREEN – The View and Navion shower screen is easy to use and can be easily stored to the side when you need to clean the shower. As the screen retracts it conveniently cleans itself.
  2. OXYGENICS FLEXBILE SHOWERHEAD – The Oxygenics showerhead in the View and Navion can be left mounted to the wall or can be easily pulled out to spray in those hard to reach places.
  3. SHOWER SKYLIGHT – The skylight found in the shower of the View and Navion allows for additional light in the bathroom while also providing extra height in the shower.
  4. POWERED ROOF VENT WITH RAIN COVER – Let in fresh air with ease with the View and Navion’s powered roof vent. The vent includes a rain cover, so a little rain won’t ruin your day.
  5. LAVATORY CABINET – The View and Navion’s lavatory cabinet provides much needed storage for your bathroom items.

  8. ROBE HOOK(s) – Dependent on the floorplan you will have either one or two hooks in your View and Navion bathroom. This convenience feature helps tidy up what might otherwise go on the floor and is conveniently located so you can grab your robe, towel or other garment within easy reach of the shower.
  9. INTEGRATED FACIAL TISSUE HOLDER – In a compact coach, anything that is integrated saves otherwise used space for you. The tissue holder in the View and Navion is integrated so you don’t give up valuable counter or storage space for a tissue box.
  10. TOE KICK LIGHTING – The toe kick lighting at the base of the vanity in the View and Navion provides soft lighting at night and helps save otherwise stubbed toes.

How to Jump Start Your RV Batteries

This time of year, you may need to jump start your RV batteries.  It’s a fairly easy thing to do and you shouldn’t feel intimidated with the task.

RV Battery

Whether you’re starting the coach or the house batteries, you’ll always want to take a few precautions:

  • Make sure to familiarize yourself with the positive and negative terminals of both batteries.
  • If the battery is cracked and liquid is leaking out, don’t do anything more.  You’ll need to purchase a new battery.
  • If the battery is frozen, don’t do anything more – it may be leaking but because it’s frozen you wouldn’t know.
  • Try to clean any corrosion around the battery terminals.

After making sure the battery is in the correct condition, you’ll want to determine the type of battery you have.

  1. Determine if you have two 12 volt batteries (Parallel) or two 6 volt batteries (Series).
  2. If you have two 12 volt batteries, connect the positive side to the red connection first and then attach the negative side of the battery with the black connection or clamp the black connection to a metal piece to ground it.
  3. If you have two six volt batteries, you must connect the red connection to the positive side on one battery and the black to the negative on the other battery.  Make sure to not connect to either of the grounds that are connected to each other.  You’ll notice you have a connection that connects a negative to a positive from one battery to the other.  Those are off limits for charging.  You’ll need to connect your starter pack to the ungrounded positive on one battery and the ungrounded negative on the other battery.

Let the batteries charge for a bit before starting the engine. Before long you should be off and running!

Winnebago Industries Inc. Earns the RVDA Quality Circle Award

Congratulations Winnebago from Lichtsinn RV!

In October, Winnebago Industries, Inc. announced that all three of its RV premium brands in both the towable and motorized segments achieved the prestigious Quality Circle Award awarded by the National RV Dealers Association (RVDA.)

Winnebago Receives RVDA Quality Circle Award

RVDA awarded 21 RV manufacturers/brands with Quality Circle Awards for achieving the highest scores in the association’s 27th Annual Dealer Satisfaction Index (DSI) survey. This means Winnebago received at least 15 dealer responses and scored 4.25 or above on a 5-point scale in overall dealer satisfaction in the association’s survey conducted June through September.

Winnebago Industries Grand Design RV, Newmar, and Winnebago businesses are each being recognized as Quality Circle Award winners based on overall dealer satisfaction as measured in the Dealer Satisfaction Index survey. RVDA created the DSI as a tool to help improve communication and relationships with RV manufacturers.

When rating their brands/manufacturers, RVDA asks dealers to express, confidentially, their level of satisfaction on four core issues:

  • Reliability/quality
  • Parts
  • Warranty
  • Sales

RVDA reported that it received DSI responses from 520 dealership locations in the U.S. and Canada that included 2,672 brand ratings, an average of more than five per dealer. A summary of the DSI survey aggregate results will appear in the December issue of RV Executive Today.

Winnebago Industries will be recognized with the other top-rated manufacturers and receive their award during the RV Dealers International Convention Expo in  Las Vegas on Thursday, November 11.

RVDA is the national association representing RV retailers. The association’s members include RV dealers, RV rental operators, and RV AfterMarket sales and service locations. RVDA of Canada is a national, volunteer federation of provincial and regional RVDA associations which exists to protect and promote the interests and welfare of RV dealers across Canada in order to enable the industry to maximize its potential.

Details of this article were originally released from RVDA.

Congratulations Winnebago! Lichtsinn RV has proudly been selling Winnebago Motorhomes for over 40 years and has been recognized as the largest Winnebago Dealer in the United States for the past 6 consecutive years.

How To Winterize Your RV

With the winter months fast approaching, it’s time for many RV owners to get their motorhome winterized, and ready for storage. Below you will find the steps needed to winterize your RV.

RV Winterization

Steps to RV Winterization:

  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 water line drain valves and drain fresh-water tank.
  3. Drain Exterior Shower/Wash Station. Open exterior shower knobs and lay shower head on the 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. Be sure to remove the water filter.
  4. Remove Cold Water Filter.  If you have a 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.
  5. Winterize the Plumbing System. This involves adding antifreeze to each sink trap, toilet, tub and shower drain.
  6. Drain the Water Heater. Drain the heater and allow the hot water to cool down.
  7. Remove the water inlet filter. Remove the 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.
  1. Use Winterization Valves if applicable. (The following details are based off the process in a Winnebago View winterization system, if you have winterization valves, your valves my not be numbered quite like this.)
    • Turn Winterization Valve 1 to the BYPASS position (to avoid filling water heater with antifreeze).
    • Remove and save the protective cap from the end of the antifreeze siphon tube (save cap to cover tube after use.)
    • Insert the end of the siphon tube into a pail or container with 2 to 3 gallons of non-toxic RV antifreeze solution.
    • 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 the lines.
    • Turn the Water Pump switch ON.
    • Open each hot and cold water faucet handle or knob in the motorhome. Open 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).
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • Turn Water Pump switch OFF.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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
    • Pour approximately one cup of RV antifreeze down each drain for the galley sink, lavatory sink, shower/tub etc. This fills the drain trap pipes to prevent holding tank odors from entering the motorhome during storage.
    • Dump and clean holding tanks. Completely drain the sewage and waste water holding tanks at an approved waste disposal site. Drain the sewage tank first so the waste water that follows can rinse any waste solids from the dump outlet and sewer hose.
    • 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.
  1. Air Circulation. Circulate the air keeping one or more roof vents partially open so air can circulate.
  2. Air Moisture. Dry the air if humid with a dehumidifier or other air drying product.
  3. Preserve the Batteries. Charge, disconnect and then remove your coach batteries.
  4. Tires. Ensure your Tires are properly inflated and store it parked on dry surface if possible.
  5. Wash the RV Exterior. Washing the exterior of you RV will allow you to inspect the exterior for any areas that might need to be sealed.
  6. Fuel. Ensure to keep the fuel fresh.
  7. Cover Openings. You’ll want to be sure to cover the openings of the water heater and refrigerator compartments with RV screens to keep out unwanted pests.
