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.

RE: A/C ghosts??

Sounds like the compressor relay is welded closed on the upper circuit board. You should shut the breaker to it, as it will run the compressor and cycle on the overload as it overheats.

RE: Atwood/Dometic furnace motor updates?

I’ve had good luck lubricating those motors- as long as the shaft isn’t worn, I drill a hole in each end bell and apply oil to soak the felt. First did it after I installed a brand new defective motor (it squealed), and the customer was leaving. Was still working years later.

RE: Lightning Protection

I worked on an Airstream that had been struck by lightning- owner was lying on the couch watching tv. Melted the body panel it struck, guy had a heart attack. Did fix the trailer, but only for permanent stay- the whole thing was pretty wracked.

RE: Bent Axle

I wonder if you hit something with the axle itself at the same time.

RE: Holding tank fittings

The solvent weld will not break- I would be tempted to put a no hub coupling in which is just a short rubber hose clamped over the outside of the two pipes. That said, the abs survives bouncing down the road, so a stationary installation shouldn’t be a problem.

RE: Holding tank fittings

It depends on the tank material, most waste holding tanks are abs, and fittings are solvent welded. Polyethylene tank fittings are spin welded or use grommets. Wanting it to be leak free, I would be tempted to use metal.

RE: Having a SENIOR moment

Around here, people think the center yellow line is what you aim your tires for.

RE: Furnace Cycles

No, it isn’t. Check the ducting for blockages or recirculating hot air. It is never good for it to cycle on the limit switch.

I40 West of Asheville closing

At some point between Nov. 6 and 22, the westbound lanes of I 40 will be closed for up to 5 days https://wlos.com/news/local/emergency-repairs-to-an-aging-bridge-could-close-interstate-for-5-days

RE: Electric Load Distribution

I’ve run across them with both air conditioners on the same leg. Brand new trailer, I was installing an lp Onan 7kw. Had to balance the loads to run both a/c’s of the genset.

RE: fridge removal and replacement

I’ve always been able to remove the RV door to make them fit, if the door is too narrow. I wouldn’t repair yours- due to its age, I would bet the foam is bad and the door has swollen a bit, but you did get 31 years out of it!

RE: Pop goes the water heater!

I bet it was fired empty at some point- the only way I can see that failure on a 5 year old heater.

RE: Hyundai's new hydrogen truck

Not dead. Just spaces in the link Chris posted. I fixed it his quoted post above. Thanks- after retirement I do this on an iPad, and the copy and paste has been adding a space- pain to edit. I edited the original to remove 5he space.
