RE: MaxAir added

I would like to find a MaxxAir/Fan 1200T. We had one on our mh and traded it a couple years ago, for a new mh. Went to get a new 1200T for the new mh and found that they were no longer made. We have tried to find one, but have struck out there, would settle for a good used one. Dusty

RE: DeWalt 20V portable air compressor

I have a couple 12 volt compressors. Mine, like the Cobalt one you can set the pressure that you want the tire blown up to and the compressor will turn off. That way you don't have to sit and watch it, they are slow. I also carry an extension cord with the one in our motor home. Dusty

RE: 500 gallon propane tank

Who owns the tank? If you own the tank, then yes. If the propane company owns it then it's their responsibility and will not be vary happy if you do it. Dusty

RE: Changing Atwood water heater plug to brass

DFORD pic looked plastic. You can get a Plastic type extension and do the same thing DFORD has done without using metal. DougWould that plastic be rated for the heat? PVC pipe is used frequently in hot water systems. NOT PVC but CPVC is rated for both hot and cold water. Dusty

RE: Ceramic Heater Safety

In our last two mhs I have installed a tow kick electric heater, which is basically a 1500 watt electric furnace. Both mhs were 120v 30 amps. I hooked the heaters to the same breaker as the Air Conditioner, you aren't going to run both at the same time, so no harm. You can use a programmable t-stat these heaters. And the heater is not taking up floor space. Dusty

RE: Can I put a sprocket made for a keyed shaft on a D bore?

On your wiring and fuses. Be sure that the wire and fuses are sized to your machine. On the sprocket. Check out Browning's pulleys/sprockets. They have a system that use a shaft squeezing system, It's hard to explain. Do a quick search, not hard to find. Dusty

RE: Can I put a sprocket made for a keyed shaft on a D bore?

The machine requires quite a bit of power and torque. When I used a 100 amp fuse I sometimes blew it. I now have a 200 amp circuit breaker which I have never blown. For some reason this bothers me more than anything you might do to make your sprocket work. Did you happen to upgrade the wire when you "upgraded" the fuse? X-2 Dusty

RE: Christmas 2019 in Vancouver part 1

I'll bet it's a cracked fitting.

RE: toilet treatment for black water tank

We keep ours in a, not very tight, pole barn, and never had a problem with odor. Dusty

RE: 4 year old Forest River vent covers already failed

MaxxAir/MaxxFan 1200T does a fine job of protecting the roof vent covers, problem is they are no longer made. Sure like one even a good used one. Dusty You mean like THIS? Yes, that is the one. But they, Al's RV don't have one. In 2015 we traded our mh in on a new mh and didn't know that the 1200T was no longer available or I would have removed the one that I had put on the old mh. Dusty

RE: toilet

Try a few drops of vegetable/cooking oil in it. Dusty

RE: digital thermostat

If it only controls the heater then you probably have only two wires to deal with. There is no high or low fan to worry about. Make sure the thermostat you buy can use batteries like two AA or something. Once you purchase your new thermostat pull the old one off the wall and count the wires. If there are only two wires this will work for you. Disconnect the two wires from the old T-StatDrill the mounting holes for the new T-StatOn your new T-Stat the RC and RH wires will probably have a small jumper wire connecting them togetherLeave jumper alone and add one of the wires from your RV, It doesn't matter which wire just pick oneHook the other wire from the RV to the W terminal on the new T-StatMount T-Stat on the wall, put batteries in and test it. It really is that simple. It will probably take you more time to drill the two holes and hang it on the wall than it takes to wire it up. This is because home thermostat's operate on 24 volt AC and RV ones are 12 volt DC or battery. Dusty

RE: 4 year old Forest River vent covers already failed

Looked up that Turbo model. Never heard of it before being new to trailers. What do you like about it? # 1 You have the vent open and rain cannot get in. # 2 It has a nice fan in it that is 3 speed and reservable. It also has a thermostat. # 3 You can have the vent lid open while driving with no harm to the lid. # 4 The fan motor and blades are at the far end, which make it quieter. Dusty

RE: Lance 2285 Water Heater Shutoff Valve

I have never put antifreeze in our mh water heater, I just drain the water out of it and leave it empty. Dusty

RE: 2020 Jayco GrayHawk 12 Cu.Ft. Double door Refer Gas Flash???

I don't know how the ignition works, but it sounds like something quite lined up right. You might open the outside cover and watch it ignite. Or have the dealer look at it.

RE: Yes boys and girls, you REALLY need to carry a spare...

Or carry a small air compressor.

RE: Source for EZ Ramp Levelers

I use 1x6, 2x6, & 4x6 boards. The 4x6's I cut about a 30* angle/ramp on one end.

RE: Serpentine Belt

Many years ago when my first Ford that had a serpentine belt was starting to get cracks in it, I asked the mechanic that I had gotten to know and trust, said that Ford had told them not to worry about those belts until they started loosing rubber. Dusty

RE: IOTA Circuit breaker Box

Most all breakers tell on the side of them what make and model they are. So just remove the breaker and look on the side of it. Dusty
