General Repair / Re: Eclipse Awning
Last post by Gary C -
I have a 2006 Inspire with that awning. Carefree had problems with awnings from that time period. The motor cover would fill with water and short the motor out . Mine was replaced under warranty years ago and has been ok since. I think the fix was to put a drain hole in the bottom of the cover to allow the water to drain. This may be a place to check. Good luck. Gary

I have a 2006 CC Intrigue, and the awning above the door is manually opened with a hand crank tool. It does not have an electric motor for the door awning.

General Repair / Re: Replace ALL Dashboard Instrumentation on 2005 Allure 470: Advice?

Don S.   AWESOME.   Would you be willing to share any info on what and who performed that upgrade?  Super Nice job.  You have given me hope!


Very easy. Just call SilverLeaf and tell them what you want. Dale did all the work at one of our rallys in the Pacific NorthWet. He had the dash panel made, complete with all the cutouts and mounting hardware for the components. I kept the old Silverleaf model as seen on the left. I also had the AC/heater controls moved up onto the panel from where they were mounted before.  I would not let anyone but SilverLeaf do the mod.

One neat feature is that when you go into reverse, the entire panel becomes the rear backup camera monitor

Consider looking at the SilverLeaf site.  I run their VMSpc on a windows computer, Apple is not supported, and put a lot of gages on the computer screen.  I use a low cost tablet computer with a removable keyboard and place it in front of my existing gages.  The data is obtained from the engine plug under the dash.  If you can't find the engine connector the connections can be patched into the transmission plug.  You will need to buy an interface box for about $400 but the program is free. You can go online and download the program and play with it to see if you like what it does.
