  1. Low Mileage 2014 30k miles Record Holder?

    Promaster General Discussion Forum
    My 2014 Winnebago Trend is built on a Promaster 3500 chassis. I bought it new and now has slightly over 34,000 miles. I'll be going on a long trip next spring. Komac
  2. AAA Towing a Promaster ??

    Promaster General Discussion Forum
    I may be a bit late in replying to this question, but I've been very satisfied with AAA towing. I have a Winnebago Trend on a Promaster chassis. The Trend is 24 feet long and a little over ten feet high. I've had it towed twice by AAA, each time for at least 100 miles, after breakdowns while...
  3. Engine Battery Maintaince?

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    I've got the failed battery still in the coach and on a "Battery Minder" trickle charger. The battery is now reading 12.9 volts, and the radio is still operative. I don't believe that parasitic drain caused my problem because I had driven the van nearly twenty miles the day before, so the...
  4. Engine Battery Maintaince?

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    The chassis battery on my 2014 PM 3500 is a NAPA AGM. It failed a week ago, and I started the engine by using the battery boost switch connected to the "house" or coach battery. I will probably buy a replacement battery in the next couple of days and put it in myself. I'm an old guy, 84, and...
  5. water drainage in the engine compartment

    Promaster General Discussion Forum
    JP844, I can't see any obvious seal below the windshield. I stayed in the dealership customer waiting room while the repair was being made. As you see in the pictures, there is no additional seal on the outside. All I know is that there used to be a flood of water in the engine compartment...
  6. water drainage in the engine compartment

    Promaster General Discussion Forum
    Earlier in this thread, I said I would post pictures of the work my dealership did on our PM to “fix” the water drainage problem in the engine compartment. I got the vehicle out of covered storage and brought it home two days ago. As I said earlier, the dealership got the parts required for...
  7. water drainage in the engine compartment

    Promaster General Discussion Forum
    Things are making more sense to me as I think about this problem which I hope was finally fixed yesterday at the dealership. Water has always entered the engine compartment of my PM, on both sides, especially over the electronics on the driver's side, and in the center which seemed to flood...
  8. water drainage in the engine compartment

    Promaster General Discussion Forum
    Prestocoffee, I drove the PM to my storage area this morning, a few miles away. At the next opportunity, I will get and post some pictures, though I don't believe they will reveal much to you. There are no part numbers that can be seen and no part numbers listed on the invoice. To me, the...
  9. water drainage in the engine compartment

    Promaster General Discussion Forum
    I want to be a helpful as possible, but I don't want to identify the dealership where I go because I believe they did the repair at their expense. Their service writer told me that they were not "authorized" to make the repair, but they decided to get the parts anyway, according to what he...
  10. water drainage in the engine compartment

    Promaster General Discussion Forum
    I promised that I would report back to this forum after my Dodge/Ram service center called me and did the suggested procedures to correct the engine compartment water drainage problem in my PM. I went there this morning, 10/23/2018. They had my PM about three hours and did the following...
  11. Water leak on engine

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    Go to this site's "general discussion" forum and click on the "water drainage in the engine compartment" topic. You will see many comments about water entering the engine compartment, even to the point of causing the engine to stall and give a "random missfire" code when diagnosed by a code...
  12. water drainage in the engine compartment

    Promaster General Discussion Forum
    Thank you travelvanvan. I will try the tape if I can't find a solution that Dodge Ram provides. I might also make the side drain holes larger. They are in what appears to be rubber plugs with holes probably less than an eighth of an inch in diameter, way too small to quickly drain even a...
  13. water drainage in the engine compartment

    Promaster General Discussion Forum
    I have a 2014 Promaster with the 3.6 Pentaster engine. I bought it new and have logged only 26,000 miles on it in the last three years. We use it mostly as a camper. On at least three separate trips, including just last week, we've had issues with the engine, each time after a heavy rain...
  14. Recent breakdown on camping trip

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    I took my Winnebago Trend/Promaster to our Dodge/Promaster dealership this morning, where I had an appointment for them to again try to find the reason for why the seat-belt light and the charging light simultaneously remain on until the seat belt is fastened. When I had the vehicle there about...
  15. How Would You Rate The Reliability Of Your Promaster

    Promaster General Discussion Forum
    I bought a new 2014 Winnebago "Trend" in May, 2015. It's a class B motor home on the Promaster 3500 chassis. It currently has nearly 26,000 miles on it, but I rate its reliability poor. The flex plate cracked at about 14,000 miles. A serious oil leak occurred at around 17,000 miles, and...
  16. Recent breakdown on camping trip

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    In 2014, I bought a new Winnebago camper on a Promaster 3500 chassis and have made several long-distance camping trips with it. I have about 26000 miles on it. Last week, in a small Virginia town, I suddenly seemed to lose power and the check engine light began to flash. I got it to a public...
  17. Oil leak

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    Now that I've seen this video, I'm wondering whether I put the "O" ring on wrong after all. As I said earlier, I did not see any oil coming from the oil filter area. I was also fairly experienced at replacing the oil filter. I had done it four times before and never had a problem. I hate to...
  18. Oil leak

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    I have a 2014 2500 Promaster. It now has 22,000 miles. I've changed oil in it since new and began using full synthetic 5W/20 in it at 5000 miles. I had an oil leak, beginning approximately 500 miles after the last oil change. I was about 600 miles from home. The only way I discovered it was...
  19. Horn Replacement

    Promaster General Discussion Forum
    There was no "road rage" involved, nor is there any need to blow the horn needlessly. The reason for my question is that on a very recent trip on I-81 north, a driver on my left proceeded into my lane and almost sideswiped us. My very "weak" horn seemed to get no attention from that driver...
  20. Horn Replacement

    Promaster General Discussion Forum
    I have a 2014 Winnebago Trend motor home with the ProMaster 3500 chassis. The horns (I assume there are two) on this vehicle are very weak, not nearly as loud as those on our new Buick or Chevy pickup. Does anyone have a suggestion about what I need to do to replace these horns or even where I...
