RE: Fridge Fuse?

Old Biscuit-I was able to find where the wires went. Both red and they go to the thermostat at the top on the thermostat as you stated. Fans are not connected to wires. I installed 2 muffin fans at the top of and ran separate wires to the fans. Thanks Can you SEE that there are NO OEM Fan? T-stat could be bad Remove both RED wires from t-stat...connect together With a good fuse and both wires connected Fans should turn on. Unless 'someone' removed them....otherwise why have the t-stat on condenser fin?

RE: Coast to Coast points

You purchase points. 1000 points equals 10 dollars. There is a purchase points button on the C2C website. Reservations are made with those prepaid points. Read the directory when you get it, or if you have it now. There is a section in there that explains things. Now WHY couldn't a 'Good Sam Care Team Member' post that info :S Click and scroll down to read about Trip Points

RE: Atwood Hot water heater drain plug

Here's what I did to make draining the water heater easy. Two nylon thread to barb adapter fittings, 12" of 1/2 inch tubing and a valve. https://i.imgur.com/bGt5xnSl.jpg Stored position so door can close. https://i.imgur.com/txdH0Mnl.jpg Doubt that flex tubing is rated for temp/press that COULD occur should t-stat & ECO fail T&P Relief Valve is set for 210*F/150 psi PVC/CPVC aren't

RE: Atwood Hot water heater drain plug

Better solution Use the NYLON OEM drain plug Atwood uses the NYLON for a few reasons NYLON will not strip out the Aluminum Threads (tank is aluminum and so are all threads) NYLON has the proper temp/pressure ratings should the T-stat/ECO fail NYLON seals without having to really crank on it with a wrench Actually should install finger tight then using a 6 point socket just snug it up Socket should be 7/8" (some are 15/16")

RE: water heaters

Technically it IS a HOT WATER HEATER After the initial heat cycle the t-stat closes at 110*F which by definition is HOT Water 'Cold Water Heater' on initial heat cycle then 'Hot Water Heater' when reheating :B

RE: Hot water heater drain

If you have a Suburban Brand with an anode rod.... Drain hole threads are steel -- 3/4" NPT (tapered threads) Buy a 6" steel nipple and install it into drain hole screwing it in/out back/forth spraying it with some penetrating oil Due to tapered threads it will NOT go in fully....inner threads will still be gunked up. Just scrub them with a small wire brush....or not doesn't matter If you have an Atwood Brand....NO anode rod ---NYLON plug Drain hole threads are Aluminum -- 1/2" NPT (tapered threads) Buy a 6" brass nipple and install it into drain hole screwing it in/out back/forth spraying it with penetrating oil Due to tapered threads it will NOT go in fully....inner threads will still be gunked up. Just scrub them with a small wire brush....or not doesn't matter

RE: Suburban water heater.

Getting behind the reset cover is the only thing not done. Removed the screws but cover did not come off easy so left it. Will do again & be more aggressive this time removing cover now that I have an idea of what is behind it. As luck has it, a guy with a Mobile Suite, same water heater as mine, has just rolled in. Also has water heater problems. 120V side. Burnt wire behind reset buttons in his. Will try to get back to mine later today. Thanks for responses. Always good to check with the assembled multitude. Did you check the wire nut connections inside the DC Junction Box? Backside of WH Tank (left side looking from back----AC Junction Box on right)

RE: Please confirm what I think I already know

No you do not NEED an Auto-transformer to boost voltage

RE: Suburban water heater.

I'm thinking my 6 gal has two resets, one elec, one gas, under the black covers, behind burner tube. The 10 gal likely same set up. Igniter should click, even though it fails to light. Jerry If high temp t-stat has tripped....NO DC to circuit board so nothing would have power (gas valve/spark electrode) 120VAC is LEFT side (electric) Black wires 12VDC is RIGHT side (propane) Red wires High temp t-stat...manual reset (Push to Reset on cover above gas valve High t-stat to normal t-stat are connected via a wire...wire sometimes burns into. Remove Push to Reset Cover to check http://www.forestriverforums.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=40704&d=1381067693 height=400 width=400 Circuit board.could be burnt circuit...remove circuit board and check backside for scorched marks etc (backside of water heater tank..glued on) http://www.reallydoingthis.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/Screen-Shot-2014-12-29-at-10.37.59-AM.png height=400 width=400

RE: Air in water lines

Hot Side.....air from water heater while filling it....should stop once water heater is full Hot & Cold side----normal when first running/filling plumbing lines ---- should stop once hot/cold plumbing is full & pressurized Not stopping Suction side of pump Suction line, pump strainer, pump casing...something is sucking air in Discharge side of pump and it would be a water leak

RE: Water pressure issue

Pump is sucking air into system ....something on pump suction side Could be the suction line, could be pump strainer, could be crack in pump casing but it is on the suction side. Discharge side it would be a water leak

RE: Fridge Fuse?

Fridge in slide out.....12VDC off of terminal block on backside of fridge running UP-----RED wire with 3A in-line fuse FANS CU826E....not the fridge model Pertains to the Cooling Unit Model on label inside fridge...typically on liner

RE: Fridge Fuse?

What would be helpful would be the BRAND/MODEL of Fridge? Typically those in-line fuses coming off the DC terminal for fridge would be for External FAN(s) 12VDC + goes to a 't-stat' on the condenser fin then to fans T-stat turns fans on/off based on FIN temp But could be something else.......Brand/Model??

RE: Another hot water heater question

If it’s electronic ignition, it will be hooked to 12v power and be fused. Pilot type use no power. 6 gal DSI

RE: Suburban water heater limited hot water on electric

Your SW6DEL uses 12VDC for control functions ---electric and propane Both electric & propane om/off switch have 12VDC supplied to them from a FUSED DC Circuit. Electric side uses a DC/AC Relay to trigger the 120VAC to element.....similar to Atwood combo unit BUT the DEL still maintains separate sets of t-stats under the 'Push To Reset' Cover 120VAC/electric....Left side ---- normal t-stat/opens 130*F & manual rest High temp/opens 170*F 12VDC/propane......Right side --- normal t-stat/opens 130*F & manual rest High temp/opens 170*F Inside the DC Junction Box (left side of water heater tank---from backside) is the DC/AC Relay CHECK the AC wire connections on that relay Changing out the element after 8 yrs is not unreasonable I don't think you are correct. The Suburban 12 volt control of 120 and LP is a recent model change. The OP's is 8/9 years old. HIS should have direct 120 wiring control. Doug OP POSTED SUBURBAN 'SW6DEL' Look up the DEL Models Oh wait...here is the Manual for the 6,10,12 & 16 DELs (MARCH of 2009) Suburban DEL Water Heaters

RE: Fridge on propane while driving

If it was a danger to run the fridge on propane while in transit I sure do not want to run it when parked and sleeping :S For those concerned...... Read up on all the built in safety features in RV Propane Systems Then read up on the safety features on your vehicle fuel system (Hint: Vehicle safety features will be a short read)

Things change , our thirty Y.O. daughter has never used a pay phone , rotary phone , road map , typewriter , buggy whip . She carries no money , only credit cards .

I went out to put her garbage can out to the curb and she calls me and sez , that is the recycle can . I think that I will go back to my cave ! NO , I can not she is watchin ! And if she is watching makes you wonder.....WHO ELSE IS!
