Why isn't my Cargo Door working?

Maybe this is worth mentioning in the opening post for completeness?

Hi,

Maybe it's worth mentioning that the information is available in the manuals that come with the aircraft? :tongue:

I'm still surprised how some are ready to spend 90USD (135 for P3D) for an aircraft with extreme accuracy and systems depth but then expect to be able to handle it like a Cessna without taking the time to dig through the real-world documentation that comes with it.

Well, I admit that may seem hard words from me as the FCOM is not the most friendly reading.
However, I wonder if some of the posters who rush to the forum to get answers without opening the manuals would do the same in real life:

"_ Hi, I have bought a new car at your shop but I don't know how to open the trunk!

_ Sir, please have a look at the manual located in the glove compartment!"

 

Not pointing anyone in particular and hurt feeling intended !

As I clearly I did read the manual, as I found out the operation was correct as stated in the post you quoted. So there was no need for a RTFM lecture.

The information about the main deck cargo operation is in the manual too, but Kyle felt the need to make a sticky post about it. I thought it was worth adding the power dependency for lower deck as well.

I understood that, hence my comment "Not pointing anyone in particular and hurt feeling intended !". Sorry if it was perceived as a lecture.

It was more a comment towards this (which is the part which still surprises me:

How often questions can be answered by "Introduction manual page X" or "FCOM page X"?

If you understood I had read the manual who else was it meant for? No one else had asked about the lower deck cargo doors.

As for your second point if you feel Kyle shouldn't have bothered starting this thread then tell him, not me. I was only suggesting adding info about all cargo doors.

Man, could you just let it go? My first phrase was kind of humourus. Then for the rest, please stop taking it personally. Maybe was it clumsy as English is not my natural language but not need to make a big deal of it...
Case closed on my side at least.

Could someone tell me which of the manuals ( 00 - 12 ) has the details regarding doors and controlling them please? I've been scouring them all (the manuals ) and for some reason I can't seem to locate the narrative on this. 

Thank you for your time!

There is also description of electrical systems but it is not easy for the non-technician to grasp the significance of how the system is configured.  I'm an electrical engineer and I had to study it for a few minutes to realize what was going on and why it was like that.

It pains me that you have had to pin this topic because people are too lazy to ready the into manual.

Maybe it is time to give up 'written manuals' as people get too lazy to read hundreds of pages, maybe it is better to do 'video manuals' ... ? 🙂

A Very good idea!

No it's not.  i understand some folks find reading difficult for any number or reasons and there are audible books because of this; however, can you imagine how boring it would be to listen to someone read the manual to you?  These are not drama stories, they are technical references on very technical subjects.

And I actually don‘t want to listen a complete topic about the (e.g.) insertion of custom waypoints (or don‘t want to watch it until the other guy eventually gets to what I need) but want to look after it in a manual where I can see the complete section and pick out just what is important to me right now.

Epic thread dredge/revive...

Before this continues:

  1. Look at the thread title
  2. Look at the topic being discussed since the thread dredge/revive
  3. Consider its applicability to point 1, and the potential to turn into something that might get locked

Can cargo doors get locked? 

Just turn on both Power busses
