RE: Dometic AC freezing up

There are some trouble-shooting manuals on-line that may help you. I assume the freeze sensor goes to a control board that controls the compressor, etc. The next step is probably to trouble-shoot or replace the control board.

RE: Electric Outlets

I have never seen a breaker that used screw terminals. They all have clamps where you push the wire straight in the side and screw a clamp down on top of it.

RE: Electric Outlets

The devices that have the wire wrap around a screw are not appropriate for the vibration environment in an RV. You need to choose ones with screw clamps, often labeled as "commercial". Even back-stab connections are more reliable than wrapped screws in an RV. People often say that RV self-contained devices are junk, but the ones by the major suppliers are approved by UL and CSA and are perfectly safe. They are specified in the National Electric Code (NEC). They do have to be installed correctly using a special tool. People used to say that crimp connections were junk, however that is the only kind of connection you will find in a modern automobile because they are the most reliable.

RE: Sources for a new/used Jack-knife couch

I was going to have mine re-upholstered, but I found one on-sale at Camping World, so i just replaced it. The cost was in the $500 US price range. If I wasn't restricted by the wheel-well, I would have changed to a recliner set-up, but I had to stick to a jack-knife-on-a-platform configuration.

RE: Discontinued control board

try dinasour electronics . they make replacement boards for almost every fridge, furnace, WH. I second this. Dinosaur boards are far superior to the original Dometic boards. I would choose them even if a Dometic board was available.

RE: How do you sanitize your fresh-water tank and lines?

While others debate the merits of different approaches, let me say that pouring bleach or any other liquid into the water tank is difficult. I used to use a flexible funnel, but all of the accordion folds held a lot of bleach that would drip everywhere, including on my pant. The solution I found was a horizontal funnel found at auto parts stores used for filling automotive fuel tanks. It is just the right shape for filling RV water tanks as well. Here is one example:

RE: How to repair front trim/stripped holes on trailer?

If you have to fix cracked or broken wood for screws to hold, consider using wood epoxy, such as JB Weld wood repair. It bonds well, can be drilled and screwed, and is weather resistant.

RE: Kitchen stove fan "flap".

My solution is similar to KimK-NY. I used a straight piece of brass rod found at hobby stores and cut it to the same length as the two pivot pins. Then I taped it to the flapper using aluminum duct-sealing tape. The result is a flapper with brass pins and a stiff brass edge along the top. It has been working fine for a decade or more.
