RE: Tow Bar connection to F150 Tow Hooks

The Blue Ox base plate for my F150 ( 2015) replaced the tow hooks. Just remove the tow hooks and bolt on the nubs for the tow bar attachment. No modification of anything on the F150 . Looking at the installation videos online I would have to remove a significant amount of the front bumper and grille assembly. Hence I’m interested in the setup that simply attaches to the factory mounted tow hooks.

Tow Bar connection to F150 Tow Hooks

Hi all On a recent camping trip I saw someone flat towing a Ram 1500 with a tow bar assembly that simply connected to the tow hooks on the truck. I’ve looked briefly for a setup that would similarly fit my 2019 F150 but haven’t found one that doesn’t require substantial modifications to the vehicle (typical base plate setup). Can anyone direct me to an appropriate setup? I already have a Blue Ox setup for my wife’s Ford Explorer but would like to take my F150 flat towed behind my MH. Thanks in advance.

RE: Dometic Duo Therm AC issue

Update: I made some sun shades out of white chloroplast and bungees them over each AC. Both units have been running strong since. Maybe white shrouds would do the trick??

RE: Dometic Duo Therm AC issue

Thanks again Doug. In your PS comment you mention disconnecting the front to back comm line. Is this something I can try independent of the board swap? Not sure I have the know-how to do the board swap.

RE: Dometic Duo Therm AC issue

Yes I inspected the 2 connections on the board. There are 4 connectors in the back evap area, then 3 in the front evap (one of which deadheads into a quick connect as you suggest. All connectors look clean. I also inspected the connector at the back of the thermostat. Any more suggestions? My unit was up to 42C today. Thanks again.

RE: Dometic Duo Therm AC issue

Ok further update. I went up and inspected the RJ11 leads on the back unit (which in my case is the control unit). The wire leads and connection ports on the main board were free of corrosion and/or oxidation. My RV dealer is now saying that dometic has had struggles with the black AC covers. On a hunch, I put wet white towels over my ac covers. Within a half hour both fired up again. My dealer is suggesting I replace my covers with white ones to see if that helps. He is also going to see if my extended warranty will replace the boards on both units.

RE: Dometic Duo Therm AC issue

Thanks Doug My units do have heat pumps. From what I can see the phone connectors are inside the RV accessible through the air intake grates on the ac units. I cannot see any significant corrosion on the connectors. I quickly took a look under the AC shrouds and didn’t see any phone connectors near the control boards, but I’ll look again.

RE: Dometic Duo Therm AC issue

My thermostat system uses the RJ11 phone style connectors. Not sure how to connect another thermostat that doesn’t use this connector type?

Dometic Duo Therm AC issue

Hi All For background I have a 2009 Berkshire 390BH DP Class A. It has dual Duo Therm ACs. I’ve been having a problem at temps over about 30C. When it gets hot outside, my front AC will shut down. The 5 button DuoTherm Comfort Control thermostat will go “blank” for Zone 1 (still shows the zone numbers on the bottom). The rear AC continues to function and Zone 2 is still accessible. Once this week, with the extreme heat, both ACs went out with both Zone 1 and 2 going blank. Once the outside temp goes down and the direct sun is off the units (night time) things go back functioning well and the 2 ACs nicely cool my motor home. My RV dealer suspects a communication issue, but I beg to differ and believe this to be heat related (outside temp). Thoughts? Is there a thermal relay on the motor that shuts the system down? I have blown out / cleaned out the outside fins and the components seem relatively clean considering the motor home is 12 years old. Thoughts on additional troubleshooting I can do on my own? Otherwise will be making a trip to the dealer for service. Thanks!
