GMC Motoroamer's Pre-Flight Checklist
BEFORE YOU GO
Restock Tools & Spares
See that all tires are fully inflated including spare. Check treads.
Open LPG tank compartment door; Turn off main LPG valve (second from front).
To fill water supply tank: unlock filler cap in LPG compartment; fill tank with hose until water runs our; recap and relock.
Securely close LPG compartment door.
See that holding tank extension hose is in rear bumper tube; end held firmly on bracket.
See that holding tank dump valve handle is pushed fully in and held in place by the two spring clips.
Open utilities door; see that power cord is plugged into compartment receptacle.
See that external water connection is capped.
Close utilities door securely.
Open motor generator compartment door and check generator engine oil level. If it reads "fill", consult operating manual for correct oil; add as required.
Close motor generator door securely.
Open fuel filler door (below driver window); add gasoline as required after setting instrument panel fuel switch on "main" (fuel capacity is 50 gallons; motor generator supplies itself by drawing fuel from main tank).
Close fuel filler door securely.
Check freon levels and working condition of the Heater/AC.
During fuel stops, routinely check underhood automotive components...engine oil, Coolant level, washer fluid, master cylinder brake fluid level, transmission fluids, radiator water levels and batteries. Do visual checks for loose or frayed cables, belts, missing or loose screws/bolts.
Enter vehicle; use inside push button to relock door. Always use inside push button to relock door when driving.
Put away loose objects; securely close cupboard doors.
Check Air filter and replace if necessary.
Turn off pilot light controls on range, oven, furnace and (if equipped) gas-electric refrigerator (pilot lights will already be off).
Check electrical compartment in wardrobe to see that the two circuit breaker switches are on, electric hot water heater switch is off.
See if there are spare fuses for living area fuse block.
Use monitor panel to check living area systems. First gauge indicates LPG supply remaining. Second indicates living area battery voltage (if below 11, needs recharging. Recharges automatically when vehicle is driven, when motor generator is run or when exterior power cord is plugged in). Third gauge indicates water remaining in supply tank. Fourth gauge shows status of holding tank (always dump tank before gauge reads full).
If there is water in supply tank, switch on water pump by sink; run water through kitchen and bathroom taps.
Turn off water pump for traveling.
To run roof air conditioner while traveling, you must also run motor generator. Motor generator turns on with switch near refrigerator. If motor generator does not turn on, push circuit breaker on motor generator and try again.
Set both power level system controls to "travel" (if equipped).
Fuel pump switch should be pushed toward "main" (both tanks are connected, but when main goes dry, 7 to 9 gallons should remain in your auxiliary tank).
Battery switch should be on "normal". If engine battery is too low to start engine, switch battery to "boost" (allows living area battery to start engine). After starting, switch back to "normal".
Adjust driver seat before starting; adjust tilt wheel using left-hand release lever.
Adjust side mirrors after adjusting seat; readjust mirrors with each change of drivers.
To start: Put transmission in "park"...depress accelerator fully; slowly release it; turn key.
Never idle engine longer than 5 minutes without depressing accelerator pedal again.
To start warm engine, hold accelerator half-way in while starting.

Shift transmission into "drive".
Move forward slowly, starting and stopping until you get the feel of power brakes and steering.
Do not back up without an observer looking out rear window.
When you turn, turn wide and turn slowly
Drive leisurely do nothing hastily.

 

AT CAMPSITE
