RE: Black Tank Roof Vent and Bathroom Roof Vent Too Close?

I liked the idea to route the vent opening somewhere else on the roof. It might look a little Beverly Hillbillyish, but who's looking on your roof anyway? Regarding vent covers, since I put mine on, I don't think I've ever actually closed my vents. Well, maybe a few times if I know I'm going down a dusty road... I wouldn't put them on backward or sideways though..

RE: Can’t find low point release valve

You could just uncap the red & blue lines, then turn on the pump. that would drain the tank pretty quickly. CC

RE: Waterproofing the 1/8" thick exposed plywood

I was going to suggest brush on polyurethane or some sealer like that, but I think MFL's suggestion of painting it would be just as good. It seems to work on house siding, right? CC

RE: PD Charge Wizard Pendant

Thanks for all the comments, It makes sense that the light is acting as a voltmeter - I think that's a good way to look at it. Although, I'd rather not look at it at all when I'm not plugged in! Yes, I have read the manual several times, and it never addresses the pendant behavior when power is not applied to the converter. I guess I'll have to rethink the pendant placement; I hate lights on - especially blinking ones! - when I'm trying to sleep. Thanks again! CC

PD Charge Wizard Pendant

I recently replaced my old magnatek buzzbox converter with a PD9245, and have a quick question about the Charge Wizard pendant. Is the LED supposed to be illuminated when the trailer is not plugged in - i.e. no 120v to the converter, only running on battery? My Charge Wizard light is on in this case, and I would think that if it's not plugged in, the light would be off. (and this would be my preference!) Just wondering what someone else with this unit sees. Thanks! CC

RE: Thoughts on the 'need' factor of a main line surge protector

people will spend $5000 for FBP to impress the neighbors but not a bumpy FBP ??? I tried, came up with federal bureau of prisons. Friends of Border Patrol? I think Full Body Paint? Freakin' Bodacious Patio-light? :) Too many TLAs. . . . Three Letter Acronyms And I don't have an EMS. Plugging in is a rarity for me. CC

RE: Quick overnight

Heck when I sleep I couldn't hear a dump truck driving through a nitroglycerin plant :B What's that sound? You hear it? It's a funny squeaky sound. :)

RE: Email digest for subscribed threads?

That's kinda what I was thinking, but thought I'd ask with the barest glimmer of hope. :)

Email digest for subscribed threads?

On many other forums I frequent, when I subscribe to a thread I have the option of getting an email for every new message or a daily digest or sometimes a weekly digest. I only see the "email for every new post" option here, is that just the way it is, or am I missing the "stop spamming my inbox!" button? :) Thanks! CC

RE: Recs for Solar Cut Off Switch?

Little disconnect switch I found it amusing that this "Little" switch is listed with dimensions of 48x36x48 inches in the Amazon technical details. But it is only 9.1 oz... I bet it floats well. :)

RE: Help and Advice on a badly placed 5th wheel

Somewhere in this multipage novel the OP mentioned Rockport, TX. ... which as I look at a map, explains the comment about really sandy & usually wet. :) CC

RE: Who says I need to take up space for a Gooseneck Hitch!

Seems to be working, what's the problem? :)

RE: Short box dually?

If you're concerned about recommended weights & COG locations, etc. Swing by your local ram dealer. They'll have a book EVERY configuration of Wheelbase, engine, trim level and the recommended locations for COG & weight limits. I picked one up at my dealer when I was buying my truck. The 2018 version is about paperback book size & 1/2" thick. I'd expect they'd be able to give you either an old book for a '16, or pull up the info somehow. CC

RE: Clean Water Heater

Last year I decided to do a vinegar soak on my water heater since I could see a lot of scale in the bottom of the tank. I think I used too much vinegar though - didn't dilute it much, and let it sit overnight. Imagine my surprise the next day when my anode rod was about half gone (was a new one that year)! I flushed all the vinegar out (the tank was nice and clean!) and thought all was well. I thought I flushed everything good enough with copious amounts of water, but should have neutralized the vinegar also - now my external water heater area where the vinegar ran out/over it is a little rusty. I'm chalking that up to the vinegar reacting with the metal & promoting corrosion. Oh well, live and learn! CC

RE: Black Water Tank Missing Capacity

Can you get to the outside of the tank to do some measurements? If so, you can calculate the approx. capacity. If you're getting less than that, it could be "stuff" or an air bubble like was mentioned. CC

RE: Can you recommend me a high temperature tape?

Just a thought, maybe use your foil tape & poke a hole in it every so often for breathability. It would certainly reduce the amount of dust that travels in & out going from a large gap to a few small holes. CC

RE: finally fixed it

I love it when you can find a definitive root cause & fix it without replacing a whole unit. Good job! CC
