RE: Legs on my HitchHiker

Follow the wires from motor back to battery...should be an in-line fuse or a DC Circcuit Breaker

RE: Dometic RM2652 5A fuse keeps blowing

5A Fuse is for the 120VAC circuit on the circcuit bard and for the heater eleent Unplyg the element leads ....replace the 5A fuse and turn fridge on Fuse Blows.....circuit board Fuse doesn't blow........element (plug the leads back onto circuit board and see if the fuse blows)

RE: Front tires on the truck

Came back from our 10,000 mile trip cross country again. Went to rotate the tires and get an alignment, and the front tires had sone scupping. They only have 30000 miles on LT tires. Could it be from towing the 5 wheel? I typically get 60,000 miles before new tires (thread still good I'm just anal about tires) Tow a 14K 5th wheel.....7 yrs was FT NO front tires wearing out in short mileage has nothing to do with towing 5vr What truck do you have....year/brand/model etc? What tire pressures are you running...front & rear----towing/non-towing?? Suspension, ball joints, shocks, weight on front tires/air pressures etc

RE: Replacing Norcold Fridge: get 2 way or 3 way?

3 way has a DC Heater element......small wattage/not designed to cool fridge down but to be used to maintain a cold fridge while in transit Use the DC element while traveling vs using propane So if you have issues about traveling with propane ON.....fridge ON then go with the 3 way and use the DC heater element to keep fridge cool while traveling Otherwise go with the 2 way......one less component to deal with and the DC element is really only good for travel

RE: Suburban Water Heater electric heating element question

Not unusual for a Suburban to have an inside switch for electric. The inside switch is 12 vdc that actuates a 12 vdc relay in a junction box on the water heater. The relay then passes 120 vac to the switch on the front of the water heater. On those you can leave the outside switch on and control the water heater on electric with the inside switch. Suburban DEL Models ONLY

RE: Suburban Water Heater electric heating element question

ANY RV using a Suburban Water Heater and has 2 inside switches plus OEM swith outside can thank the RV MFG (or previous owner) Suburban does NOT supply an Inside Switch for the electric......just the Outside switch on ALL models (except 'DEL') DEL Model-----OEM Dual switch that uses 12VDC for electric and gas Only Model that does -----OEM 120VAC Outside switch still used https://isteam.wsimg.com/ip/43b3c89d-b7e9-11e4-acc3-14feb5d9e2d6/ols/8041_original/:/rs=w:600,h:600 height=400 width=400 NUWA (HitchHiker) used BOTH Atwood and Suburban Water Heaters....model/vintage dependent.

RE: Suburban Water Heater electric heating element question

Suburban OEM On/Of Switches GAS...Inside the RV Electric ....Outside Compartment Some RV MFGs (previous owners too) will ADD an additional switch Inside for the electric ----wired in series so BOTH would have to be on for the electric to work. When there is an Inside switch for electric the outside one can be left on and the inside one used to control electric heating

RE: Propane not working in stove

With propane vavled in service and NO propane appliance turned on the Main LP Reg goes into 'lockup' to keep system pressure in check. When turning on a propane applinace the REG has to establish flow and control system pressure which is only 0.4psi so it can take awhile Stove top/oven has it's own LP Reg under the burner top. It also has to estalish flow/pressure which is dependent on Main LP System pressure Stove/oven LP Reg controls at 10"WC (0.36psi) Usually lighting off stove top burners on HIGH will add in placing Main LP Reg in service and therefore stove/oven reg in service. Use a lit match held at burner...turn burner on HIGH and WAIT.....burner will light off when System pressures/flows have been established. Furnace is biggest demand on LP System and that is helping to establish flow/system pressure All Stove top burners on high 2nd highest demand Water heater...3rd Fridge burner ----lowest demand Main LP REG Lever....left right center?? Frist cylinder valved in is primary ....turn lever towards that cylinder Second cylinder valved in is secondary .....when 1st cylinder pressure drops to ~10psi the auto changeover port will swap to secondary cylinder and indicator will go RED. Turn lever towards secondary cylinder and indicator goes GREEN. Valve out 1st cylinder/remove-refill and then place back in service (open valve slowly)--it is not secondary supply -----repeat as necessary Always Open the cylinder service valves SLOWLY...should hear a CLICK then fully open the valve Opening too quickly can cause Excess Flow Device to trip (Inside the BIg Green ACME Nut) ---Close valve wait 30 seconds then open SLOWLY to reset

RE: Supplemental AC

Upgrading to a 15K A/C Unit is less expensive then adding an additional A/C Unit especially with only 30A trailer

RE: Water heater newbie

Picture is TOO LARGE...makes it hard to follow info etc THAT is an Atwood GC10A-4E water heater.....electric.gas combo and uses a Common DC Fused source for controls/functions Fused DC goes to the On/Off Switches (inside RV) then from switches DC goes to circuit board (Electric/White wire & Gas/Orange wire) DC then goes to/thru T-stat thru Thermal Fuse (inside the clear tubing---blows at 190*F if flame blows back out of combustion chamber---must replace if blown) and back to circuit board (Brown wires) *thermal fuse can be removed...wire connected to t-stat to 'TEMPORARILY' operate water heater When DC comes back via brown wire then Circuit Board sends DC to ECO/Gas Valve...... On Gas it would be FULL DC Voltage to open gas valve and energize Spark Electrode (high voltage spark) On Electric it would be just a few millivolts so that ECO (Energy Cut Off/Hi Temp T-stat) is incorporated into control loop On Gas Spark electrode FIRES (Click, Click, Click) and ignites propane from gas valve provided propane is available, orifice/burner are clean and spark electrode wire/connections are good) On Electric DC is sent from Circuit Board to DC Relay which closes and allows 120VAC to go to element provided AC Circuit Breaker is not tripped, wiring at DC Relay is not bad and element is good (energizing w/o water will burn element out in seconds/minutes) 2A fuse on circuit board protects DC circuits on board...if blown/no functions (and probably a shorted circuit board) Got a Voltmeter...know how to use it....trace the DC circuits from on/off switches to circuit board and components. Here is the wiring diagram to follow circuits https://isteam.wsimg.com/neb/obj/RTRCMkU0RDUzQ0M1ODE3RDgxMDg6ODk1ZmRhMWE3OWFlMzNkNDU2MWY3OTQ5OWYyOTExZmM6Ojo6OjA=/:/rs=w:600,h:600 height=400 width=400

RE: Water heater newbie

And remember most water heaters have an inside "On" switch and an outside "On" rocker behind the outside panel where the water heater is drained. Make sure that little guy is "On", too. Only Suburbans ---outside switch is for Electric Element (OEM) Inside switch is for GAS Some RV MFGs will add an Inside Switch for Electric wired in series with outside switch...both have to be on for electic to work (unless burned out due to no water in tank) Atwood uses Inside switches since 2004 models (combo elecric/gas) Gas Only...inside switch Think OPs Dutchmen uses Atwoods

RE: Security Bar over RV entrance door??

A $50 lock on a 50 cent frame though. And a 99 cent Large FLat Screw Driver from the bargin bin will OPEN any RV entry, compartment etc.
