Help Loft bed question
« on: September 03, 2017, 09:26:49 PM »
Was driving my 2017 Vista LX 30T down the road when out of the corner of my eye I see a bright flash of light and pop (like when a power transformer goes only on smaller scale) at the top part of the driver's side window area. As soon as I could pull over, I looked but saw nothing. Yesterday I went out to the rv and heard like a motor running above the driver's seat area. I can't tell if the running noise is coming from the loft bed or the upper corner of the rv inside, I am guessing that it is the loft bed motor.  Being a holiday weekend of course no one is available to tell if this is a problem that can wait until Tuesday when service is back to work or not.  I have the rv plugged into shore power so am not worried about the batteries draining. Is there anything I should do before Tuesday or is it okay to let just do it's thing until then?

I think I'd find the fuse and pull it. Those motors are probably not designed for continuous operation and might well overheat and start a fire. That pop was probably a short circuit and may also present a risk.
