Don't know if it the right thing to do, but I lower the suspension, and then with the levelers in manual mode, I level front to back, and then side to side. I only lift the MH the necessary amount, no more.

My quote for the roof was much less, they only quoted 6 hours to remove all the furniture and re-install it afterwards. They were offering to do the top in either Line-X or that RV Armor like stuff. Still came out to $12K.

I am seriously thinking about just using the DiCor Fiberglass Roof Coating. Probably just the exposed area. May need to clean the surface first.

Had a bunch of leaking before, but some DiCor sealant took care of that. I have one more leak to find in the front, maybe from the new windshield.

Dicor has a new vinyl type roof membrane that you should have a look at. Very similar to what high end manufacturers like Newmar have been using.

Very low maintenance and comfortable in price to EPDM rubber but far superior.

I looked at the DiFlex II which does not work to well with the SkyDeck because of the traffic and the equipment installed on the roof.

Yes it is not cheap but I always believed in "you get what you pay for".
The product is not so the problem it is the craftsmanship to put it on our interesting roof.
All seating will be removed and the liquid seal installed so it build a good and clean run off for the water on the sided too. This will flush the debris easier out and clues all the sides front and rear cover to the roof.
I was impressed with the eye for details and the passion for the job with MasterTech RV and it is not easy to find somebody who is not only treating it as a job, specially in times like now where more work is around then good craftsman.

That sound logic. I forget usually to lower the air suspension and sometimes I run out of lift in the front.
I read you not supposed to lift the wheels of the ground and sometimes I use wood under the wheels to pre-level it in extreme uneven lots.

So, I think this question will fit in here. Has anyone taken the pump and reservoir apart on the power gear leveling system that would be on a 2000 390XL? I am wondering if there is a pickup line or something in the tank that could possibly disconnect. My landing gear will not deploy and I am in the process of troubleshooting. It looks like the solenoids are working as they should. The pump doesn’t seem to pick up the fluid.

Make sure your fluid is topped off.
I have some info here on checking the solenoids. Your problem of not drawing oil sounds to me more like solenoids not opening?

That is what I was thinking too, but I did check the solenoids and moved them around to make sure it was a stuck dump valve. I went so far as to disconnect the dump solenoid and activated the pump, I can hear the pump run, but it doesn’t sound like it is under a load, just free spins. The fluid level is right up to the fill location on the tank. I am about to disassemble the tank and see if there is anything there. I hope there is a filter or something at the end of the pickup that is blocked.

I had a similar issue last year on my 2005 SkyDeck.
The pump is a gear pump and in my case the the gear on the driveshaft was busted.
There is a modification available from the manufacture cost like $400 but comes with everything needed.
I had a local guy trouble shoot and install the replacement parts.
