RE: Bike Rack That Won't Interfere with Dinghy

I've put a receiver hitch on the front of our Class C, and carried our bikes there. The biggest problem driving is if you drive at night the bikes some what block your head lights, and the lights reflect back a little. Driving expressways at night is not too bad, but driving regular roads at night is a pain. Dusty

RE: Getting ADCO Windshield Cover Into Storage Bag?

Where we park for the winter, we face the South so we have a sunscreen for the outside of the wind shield. You can see thru it, from inside to out in daylight, and out to in at night, we do have a blind we use at night. Dusty

RE: Replacing Workhorse Brake Line

If you feel that 1 brake line/tube needs replacing, then I would take a hard look at the rest of the brake lines. Dusty

RE: Class C with only overhead bed

We had a 24'- 02 Itasca Spirt 24V. It had a rear dinette, and a nice couch that would pull out for a bed. but it had the bed over the cab, we referred to it as "The Crows Net". That is where we slept. We liked that mh, but age has a way of catching up and when one needs to get up during the night. Dusty

RE: Power

Single phase compressor type of refrigeration units will trip GFIs, because of the way it takes to start the compressor motor. Dusty

RE: Freedom Elite 22FE Fresh Water Drain

Our mh has a panel that had 4 screws holding it in place. I took 2 magnetic cupboard door holders and put them center top and bottom, and made a wooden puller/handle on it. I stained the handle to match the wooden panel. Wasn't sure how well it would work. That was a couple years ago, and it is working well, has never fallen off. Dusty

RE: Fuzion 342 Questions

I like adding a 1 or 2 gallon pressure tank to the water system.

RE: Clean Water Heater

I've seen home water heaters where the hot water smelled like rotten eggs. When the anode rod is removed the rotten smell goes away.

RE: Clean Water Heater

Don't have a winterizing kit, live in SoCal. Want to know if I can fill hot water tank with vinegar/water solution by removing pressure relief valve and filling though the orifice. I would think you could do that as long as there is a way for air to get out as you fill with vinegar/water.

RE: Propane appliances

Check the gas pressure and flow at each appliance that is not working right. Dusty R.

RE: Travel with Kill Switch Off

Many years ago there was a report of where a gas station employee was changing a filter on a pump, and an RV pulled in. There was an explosion, the employee was killed, and the RV was destroyed. We've had a couple of mh where the access to the back of refrigerator was not far from the gasoline fill. So I added a switch within reach of the drivers seat, to 12 volt line at the refrigerator. We turn of the refrigerator when pulling into a gas station. The only problem we've had is to remember to turn it back on after leaving the station. Dusty

RE: No Spare tire correct

For jacking up our mh, I bought a hand hydraulic operated pump and installed it's hose to my hydraulic jack. Now I don't have to lay under the mh while jacking the rear end to change a flat tire. Dusty

RE: Accumulator installation

What kind of pressure do you have in the tank when empty? Try adjusting it. If I remember right pre-set pressure in tank should be 2lb. below pump turn on pressure.

Would it help to bring the slide in with the engine running?

RE: RV outlets reliable?

That type of electric receptacle/outlet is used in mobile homes as well as RV's. The boxes that regular outlets and switches are installed in are sized by the size and number of wires that are in that box. One can check the National Electrical Code to see what size is needed. There are few places in an RV that there would be room for standard outlet with the required box.

RE: 2014 Atwood Helium fridge not working. Freezer works though?

It might be that the cooling coils are only in the freezer and the fridge is cooled by a vent from the freezer which might blocked/plugged.

RE: Dangerous?

I was working on a construction job once, was pushing a guy around on a small work platform that had a battery powered hydraulic lift. He was welding brackets up to hang light fixtures from. It had been a long day, more than 8 hours, and the battery was weak. Sparks fell down from him welding, and landed on the battery, there was a few very small explosions, pop,pop,pop, the battery cell caps popped off.

RE: Hot water heater drain

A trick I've used to clean the internal pipe threads is to take a short piece of threaded pipe and cut 2 or 3 slots across the threads, with a hack saw or a cutoff wheel.
