RE: ALDE heating and water heating system. Comments welcome.

If you add air conditioning to that, be sure to include dehumidifying also. Dusty

RE: Fuel Pump & Gas Filter for Onan Mobile Genset 4KY

Most mh the generator gas pick up tube does not go below 1/4 tank.

RE: Onan 4000 generator cranks but won't start

When you checked the spark plug, did you also check for compression? It takes 3 things to make a gasoline engine engine work, compression-fuel-spark.

RE: Dometic AC Fan Not Working

Is there power going to the fan motor when it is supposed to be running? Perhaps you have a bad relay.

RE: 2008 Holiday Rambler Augusta fresh water pump locatio

I like to take a tank that is used in a home hot water heating system, and install it in the fresh water system in out mh. It smoothes out water system vary nicely. Those tanks have a bladder in them, so they can be installed laying on there side, which makes it easy to anckor down. Dusty

RE: Should Be Simple But..

There's a check valve between where the park water hooks, and where it hooks to the the RV water system, the leak between those two points.

RE: Max Air Vent Cover Maintenance

I put a MaxxAir 1200T on our MH. That was the one that had about an 145* arc, which would not allow rain in. We traded that MH for a new one, and I went to get a new MaxxAir 1200T to put on the new MH and found that they were no longer made. Wish I could find a good used one.

RE: Tire engineering question.

Anyone ever check how accrete their tire pressure gauge is? I have several gages and one reads quit a bit different than the others. I believe that heat can cause quite a bit of damage to a tire, and load and speed cause heat. So when one duel blows and you drive slower because you are running with a blown tire, that helps the good one make it.

RE: Looking for end all be all air pump

I've found that things that need a lot of air at low pressure, a vac that has a place to hook the hose to so you can use the out put air to blow up things like an air mattress works much better that an air compress of that kind of job.

RE: 2004 Tioga 23E water pump

A couple of ours have been next to the water storage tank under the the bed. The mattress lays on plywood which lifts up and uncovers the tank and pump. I like to add a small water pressure tank to the system which lets the pump turn less often and run longer when it does turn on. Prevents the short bursts, like when flushing the toilet.

RE: Armoured extension cord

I wonder if what is being are calling a galvanized neutral is in instead aluminum.

RE: Armoured extension cord

Oh perfect!! You already have wire run in conduit over there. You should be able to get a standard 15a receptacle on that. Depending on conduit size he might be able to pull thicker wire and give you a 30a setup. If you ever wanted to run heaters and stuff come winter 30a would be awesome. If you post a picture of your service panel people here might be able to give advice on what to do. It could be really easy to put that outside junction box on its own 15 or 20a breaker. So its not sharing power with the house. I had to do that back home. We plug the trailer into the garage outlets. But it kept tripping the breaker. So i gave 1 outlet its own dedicated 20a breaker. The breaker was already there. Just had to swap wires around. Ideally that outside junction box is already on its own circuit. Like you said it will be cheap to add an outlet right there. Have you pulled the cover and taken a peek? Hopefully its not low voltage wire for outdoor lighting. If it looks like speaker wire then he will have to pull new wire. When you switched wires around. I hope that you didn't put #14 wires on a 20 amp breaker.

RE: Do newer Winnie Minnies (2015+) have leak issues?

We had had leaks in our 2001 Itasca, but not our 2014 Itasca.

RE: GFI Breaker

GFI = Ground Fault Interrupter Is what they were called when they first came out/were required. GFCI = Ground Fault Current is what they are now called, there maybe a slight difference. A GFCI receptacle is most often the first receptacle on a circuit then all the other receptacle down the line are also GFCI protected, if properly wired. Actually GFCI means ground fault circuit interrupter. They do not trip on over current. They trip if there is a ground fault (basically an abnormal leak of current to ground) in that circuit, as little as 5 ma. Thanks for correcting my mistake, and adding how they work. That 5 ma. is so small that it can travel through you trip the power and you will not feel it.

RE: class c house battery problems

I've had a mh where the rv battery was behind an outside compartment door. I had another mh that when you opened the door to go inside there was a step that was removable, and under that step was where the rv battery was.

RE: The importance of a TPMS Tire Pressure Monitoring System

You all may think I am a simpleton, but I carry a short solid wooden club under the drivers seat. Every time I re-fuel, I grab it and smack each of the 6 tires. If they don't make that distinctive thud - I check into it..... I believe that what many full time truckers use. That's exactly why I carry a rubber mallet in our motorhome - for thumping of the inner tires in the rear duals to find out if they're soft. ;) I use an IR gun when I stop, one tire being hotter indicates a low tire pressure. I also check my brakes and see if any are dragging. X-2 Dusty

RE: 2012 Arctic Fox 990S

Let me break a fact of RV life to you, those panels are mostly worthless. Maybe, only maybe the fresh water tank reading could be right. If you want real readings you have to go to something like the SeeLevel meter system. People try all sorts off cleaning schemes to clean their sensors but if any work, I do not know about it. X-2

RE: The importance of a TPMS Tire Pressure Monitoring System

I tow a loader flatbed trailer with our "C". One day I got the trailer out and checked the tires with a tire pressure gage, they were fine, I loaded the trailer and also the mh. About 4 hours we were all loaded up and left home. About 20 minutes later we stopped so my wife could get a few things she needed. While she was shopping I did a quick check of the trailer and load. I found that the trailer had a very soft tire. Checking the tires with a pressure gage had caused the valve to start leaking. Now I carry a radiant temperature sensor to check tires whenever we stop for a short break.
