RE: Converter Nichrome Wire Break

I believe there is supposed to be a self resetting circuit breaker there- not a piece of nichrome wire. If the breaker went bad and someone just removed and bypassed it.... The schematics and service manual for that can be found at http://parallaxpower.com/archived-tech-docs/# B & W begat Magnetek, Magnetek begat Parallax Power.

RE: Still confused about inverter n gen

That’s odd- maybe newer televisions are more sensitive, but why can a $80 ups switch fast enough for all electronics to stay powered up, but a thousand dollar inverter will not? Regardless, I’d have the electronics on a ups, set to not beep on power interruption ( we have 5 with all of our electronics on them at home).

RE: Website Host

You could also use a blog platform- Googles blogger or Wordpress.

RE: 2002 Newmar Kountry Star reoccurring electrical problem

Is this plugged in to a home 30 amp outlet? Sounds like a miswired outlet, wired for 240 vac instead of 30 amp 120 vac.

RE: A&E/Dometic Awning Question

For the standard 16’ awning with the awning extended it takes 16 turns.

RE: What a bunch of junk.

Those are pretty low numbers, once past the Airstream and Freightliner chassis issues.

RE: Power max converter pm3 55lk

Leave the battery turned on, only turn it off for storage.

RE: first report new springs with a surprize result

You were going uphill before :) Seriously, I would bet aerodynamics relating to the underside of the coach.

RE: Electric vehicles

That GM 5.7 diesel is junk, so all Diesel engines are junk? Below 20° here and our built in South Carolina electric busses are doing fine, as are the multitude of Tesla vehicles.

RE: Atwood Furnace Problems

Remove the orifice and clean that short manifold.

RE: Furnace trouble again .....

Come to think of it, that model has more than its share of bad limit switches.

RE: Furnace trouble again .....

Ducting, hot air recirculating, return air.

RE: Marinated Hotdogs

That would be perfect for spiral cut dogs, my favorite way.

RE: Electronic failures, PCB repairs.

I also find there are often common failure points on some of these boards. Compressor relays on DuoTherm analog control boards, a particular 2 watt resistor on Norcold 600 power boards come to mind.

RE: Magnetek 3230 power converter problem

The right hand three are filtered and tied to the battery, the others are switched by relay to the converter output. That converter is so obsolete, better off to replace it- dirty power, 3 amp poor battery charger, etc. But, if you want to try to repair it look at http://parallaxpower.com/archived-tech-docs/# for schematics and service manual.

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

The sand complicates things. Is rotating it a viable option, or must it be pulled back? I would second the jacks fully retracted while moving. I’m thinking jacks on 2x6’s on pipes as rollers on plywood.

Forklift will cost too much? Sorry, but...

RE: A/C ghosts??

The a/c works great with either power source? The problem is when unit is in the OFF position and you plug in or crank Genny, the front unit, ONLY; tries to come on for 2 mins. and cycles that way; with NO air coming from vent; off for 20 mins. & Does those cycles as long as power is coming to it? No matter which source? I can go in & operate with thermostat ON & control thru temps & works just fine with air coming from vents & all? Not sure why every sentence is a question, but I stand by my last post- your upper circuit board has a bad compressor relay and needs to be replaced, from the symptoms you have given. .??

RE: Limit switch trips on Atwood furnace

Those do go bad- temporarily, just hook the leads to an act fuse- the breaker should have the value on it, maybe 10 or 15.

RE: Limit switch trips on Atwood furnace

What is tripping is a circuit breaker, I suspect. Limit switches are self resetting. It may be bad, or the motor could be drawing too much current.
