RV Service Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

In a recent Lichtsinn RV Live, Brian Buffington, Lichtsinn RV Service Director, answered some of our frequently asked questions of the service department and answered our audience’s questions live. Here are our RV Service FAQs –

Watch our video on Service FAQs and Winnebago’s Fiberglass Roof here.

Can I hook up a 2 Amp trickle charger to a Class A gas or Diesel without disconnecting the batteries? 

It is always recommended to unhook the battery when working with any chassis items to prevent damage or health hazards. 

When winterizing an RV using the dry method, is it required to charge the system with antifreeze? 

Not necessarily, but there are a few other steps you have to do with that method. It is best to refer to your owner’s manual to see the recommended steps to winterize using air. We like to suck up a little RV antifreeze in the pump to protect it and then make sure to put antifreeze down all the drains. 

What is the recommended installation for solar on a fiberglass roof? 

Most manufacturers’ panels come with the mounting brackets. 98% of the solar panels we install are done by mounting the panel by cutting into the roof and resealing it. There is an option for mounting a panel without cutting into the roof and we do that as well. 

What is the max height for a solar panel? 

It depends on the layout of the roof. Generally, the lower the better. You don’t want to get it too high and get a parachute effect.

With a diesel engine how do you recommend you break it in?

Our recommendations are based on the chassis manufacturers recommendations. 1,000 mile break in at various speeds without a tow car to properly seat the cylinders. 

Can I upgrade my house batteries to lithium?

Yes, we do it all the time. There are some additional considerations we would need to take into account based on your RV. If you are interested please call our service department at 1-800-343-6255 and we will assist.

Is it difficult to remove the stabilizer jacks?

 Stabilizer jacks are not difficult to remove if you have the right tools. It can be difficult to access the bolts that would need to be removed. 

How should I maintain the house batteries?

If you have flooded lead acid batteries with a water level – watch the water level in the batteries, don’t leave it plugged in all the time, and keep the batteries clean.  

What should I do of the tank levels are not reading correctly? 

Make sure you are doing black tank flushes frequently if you have that feature. Thetford also makes some good products to help clear out your tanks. 

Is it better to use the electric function of a heater instead of LP, if you have access to electricity?

We always recommend using electricity to conserve LP. 

What cleaners should you use on the roof of a Winnebago View? 

As needed, use general soap and water and be very careful it can be very slippery. 

Do all Winnebago motorhome models have fiberglass roofs? 

Winnebago’s more price conscious products like the Intent, Outlook and Vita have a dicor roof membrane. However, underneath the dicor membrane the roof is still constructed with the same industry-leading SuperStructure Construction method as Winnebago’s fiberglass roofs. 

How do fiberglass roofs hold up to hail?

Fiberglass roofs hold up excellently to hail. We used to own an auto dealership when we would have hail we wouldn’t worry about the fiberglass roofs on the RVs.

Winnebago to Provide Masks to MercyOne

Lichtsinn RV is proud to be a Winnebago Dealer. With the recent health crisis Winnebago has  gotten creative in how they can help deal with this crisis. Health officials have stated that increasing the number of face shields will give health care workers more flexibility in the type of masks they use and several Iowa companies are starting to produce face shields, including Winnebago Industries, Inc..

Winnebago Press Release 3/31/20

Winnebago Industries, Inc. (NYSE: WGO), a leading outdoor lifestyle product manufacturer, announced today it will be providing medical masks to MercyOne North Iowa Medical Center. The masks are being manufactured by employees at the Company’s Stitchcraft facility in Forest City, Iowa, which houses industrial sewing capabilities and produces soft goods for Winnebago Motorhome production. The facility typically specializes in creating items such as seats, sofas, cushions, pillows, draperies, shades, valances, mattresses, bedspreads, and a host of other sewn parts.

“As the health crisis has evolved, we have focused our efforts on determining how we can best use our Company’s resources to provide support in overall relief efforts and specifically efforts that positively impact our local communities,” said Chris West, Vice President of Operations at Winnebago Industries. “We are blessed to have a workforce who is dedicated to supporting our local community needs and want to thank all of our caring employees who have helped make this critical project a reality.”

Winnebago Industries reached out to The State of Iowa and worked with Iowa Homeland Security & Emergency Management as the health crisis escalated to offer potential mask production services. A connection was made with MercyOne North Iowa Medical Center and the research and design process quickly began. The first shipment of masks will be delivered on Monday, March 30th and additional deliveries will continue to fill the first production run of approximately 6,000 masks. The masks are being donated to MercyOne North Iowa Medical Center and will be used by clinical staff as they treat patients.

“Thank you to the team at Winnebago Industries for helping address a national shortage in medical masks,” said Rod Schlader, President, MercyOne North Iowa. “Community partnerships like this are the perfect example of how good can come from this very critical public health situation. The safety of our colleagues and patients is our top priority, and this generous donation from Winnebago Industries brings a crucial boost to our efforts to secure personal protective equipment. We are proud to live and work in north Iowa, where our business and health care organizations can quickly come together to serve our communities in this time of crisis.”

Public health officials say these fabric masks can be worn under a face mask by health care workers and can be reused if properly cleaned and disinfected.

Tips for Finding a Reputable RV Dealer: Online Reviews

So you have decided that the RV lifestyle is for you and now you have begun researching the perfect RV for your needs. A lot of buyers think the research process ends when you find the perfect RV, but there is another important step that many people forget… finding the perfect RV dealer to work with. Buyers will want to invest just as much time if not more, in researching RV dealers to make sure they find a reputable dealer to work with.

“There is another important step that many people forget… finding the perfect RV dealer to work with.”

Let’s face it, there are a lot of lousy RV dealerships out there. Unfortunately, in the race to find the lowest possible rig price, many people choose to buy from dealers who do not have a track record of great customer service and outstanding RV repair. Know in advance that the lowest price is not usually synonymous with the best reputation. In our blog series we will cover what you should be looking for in your RV Dealer.

Online Reviews – In the past, buyers had to rely on word-of-mouth to learn whether or not an RV dealer is reputable. Now with Google Reviews, Facebook, Yelp and more customers can read about other customer’s experiences with the dealer. You will want to make sure to read third-party reviews like the ones on Facebook and Google because dealers are not able to remove negative reviews like reviews featured on their sites. When customers take the time to leave a review of a business typically it is because they had a wonderful experience or a not so wonderful experience. When you read through several reviews you will start to see patterns about their sales people, the service department and more. We have seen larger “super-store” type dealers remove reviews from their Facebook page so potential buyers can’t read what their customers are saying about them. At Lichtsinn RV, we ask all of our guests to leave us reviews or recommendations we want to know how we can make our guests’ experience the best it can be. Because after all, we want our guests to Experience the Best at Lichtsinn RV! Lichtsinn RV Review

You can read our Google Reviews here and our Facebook reviews here. 

The RV buying process is a lengthy, but exciting process and finding the perfect dealer to work with makes the experience that much more enjoyable.
