RE: electrical I think

Check for Inline fuse or DC CB on/under the tongue/frame ----follow the Battery POS Cable If it was the Reverse Polarity Fuses on Converter he would not have ANY DC whether on shore power or not

RE: Water Heater electric element

10E version uses DC to control electric and propane Element might not be bad.....could be: No DC from circuit board to the DC Relay (yellow wire should have DC when Electric is selected and water is cold) DC Relay could be bad AC wires to/from that Relay could be melted Element could be burnt out/shorted DC Relay and Element are on backside of the WH Tank under the protective cover at bottom of tank How you access depends on your RV....could be via inside a cabinet, removable panel, removable cabinet floor (removable means just stapled in place...pry it open) or even from underneath RV or panel in next compartment Check for access directly behind where water heater is installed Wiring..follow the DC https://nebula.wsimg.com/obj/RTRCMkU0RDUzQ0M1ODE3RDgxMDg6YjcxODcxNGMwMGY1YjAzODVhNjY0NWNmMTFjMTg5YzY6Ojo6OjA= height=400 width=400 https://th.bing.com/th/id/OIP.C65rPgW0XqSAXUNSeRRvQgHaEM?pid=ImgDet&rs=1 height=350 width=500 1 1/2" thin wall 6 point socket to remove element if bad

RE: An easier way to fill propane tanks on Lance 1172

Gallon of propane has 91,500btu Add up your propane appliance btu/hourly rating Water heater *Atwood 6 gal ---8000btu *Atwood 10 gal ---10,000btu *Suburban ----12,000btu Furnace......20K, 25K etc Fridge....1200-2200btu Stove top/Oven 1 burner...9000btu other 2 burners....5000btu each Oven 1200-2000btu Remember BTU Rating is Per Hour of run time *roughly 20 minutes per hour -----so 3 hrs for 1 hr run time WE FTd with Two 30# cylinders Used all appliances on propane...... *Summer time.....usually 4- 5 weeks on ONE 30# cylinder *Winter time.....couple be week and was every other day when temps were below 0*F

RE: An easier way to fill propane tanks on Lance 1172

Portable cylinders....haven't found a place yet that will refill with them still in place 1st off they should be filled Vertically 2nd they should be weighed when filling 3rd bleed valve should be cracked open when filling Seems a step ladder is feasible....IF you are stable on one

RE: water heater works fine - IF- I leave door open

"The RETURN millivolt signal for flame is NOT that strong and will be disrupted by a slight short to ground." Return signal? Are you saying that the Suburban design uses the spark apparatus as double duty for whether or not the flame lit? If true, that seems dumb. There does not appear to be any damage to the orange wire, looks new. The connection to the lug is shiny and clean. As suggested, I cleaned the burner tube. The air-gas mixture is fixed, not adjustable. --- Are you positive the air mixture is not adjustable? On all RV WHs I've seen, there is a mixture adjustment where the burner tube meets the gas valve. You adjust it by loosening a small screw and twisting it on the tube to open or close the slots in it to add or block air. Guess all of your WHs were Atwoods Suburban ,,,,which OP has....does not have ANY air shutter/air mixture adjustments Suburban uses gas flow to pull correct air in via venturi affect

RE: Refrigerator temp

40 degrees Fahrenheit is the absolute maximum temperature that potentially hazardous foods can be kept at. Anything above that and you are asking for trouble. Additionally, the longer time that the food is kept at that temperature, the more hazardous the food becomes. 35degrees F. or so is more ideal. skipg: My Dometic RML8555, brand new has never done any better than yours and its sad that we consumers are saddled with these lousy appliances. As a side note: my two friends who bought new rvs that have the same fridge as I do, had the same problem also and Dometic's response is that that's the way they are. One friend spent $$$$ and switched to a 12volt compressor fridge and the other spent $$$ trying to repair something that couldn't be fixed. Myself, I've given up. RV MFG are to blame for NOT properly installing Absorption fridges as per Norcold & Dometic Installation guides Proper clearances, insulation, airflow/draft requirements etc Those issues are with the RV MFG YES.... The safe refrigerator temperature range in the main compartment is 40 degrees Fahrenheit or below, with 37 degrees Fahrenheit being considered the optimal for holding foods cold. Those temps ARE achievable with absorption fridges ,,,when correctly installed Airflow/Draft and clearances are critical

RE: Refrigerator temp

1st off.....Model of that Dometic would be helpful Moving thermistor.....that suggests you do not have 'adjustable temp settings" but an 'auto temp control' model Unplug thermistor leads from lower circuit board (usually on upper left area of board....2 leads) Run fridge for 12 hrs w/o thermistor...no temp sensing feedback to thermostat so fridge will cooling continuously. Food compartment should get very cold provided circuit board is functioning properly and cooling unit is capable of full cooling

There is NO recommendation for car/pickup tires....that 5-7 yrs is for Trailer tires due to sitting stationary for long periods If your truck sits...then maybe

RE: Dometic fridge not cooling on LP. Just LP.

Freezer/Food compartment get cold on AC element and stays cold on DC element But freezer only gets cold (not the food compartment) when using GAS That means GAS is NOT generating ENOUGH hot ammonia vapor..... Low LP System Pressure causes cool gas flame cause insufficient boiling of ammonia into hot vapor *freezer is first in coolant flow......freezer gets cold cause there is enough absorption but not enough for food compartment LP System Pressure OR obstructed burner orifice inhibiting the gas flow to burner Side note: 'Fridge'----that is the whole unit Freezer AND food compartment 'Fridge' is short for Refrigerator

RE: What is the Passport America plan

50% off daily rate If rate is $50 and PA Rate is $25 then use it twice and you have paid for th $44/yr fee (2x @$50+$100------$44 + 2x @$25 = $94....SAVE $6 after that you would save 50% not only at that CG but others that accept the PA discount) *Each CG has their own restrictions/limitations on when/how many nights etc For $44/yr....it helps cut CG costs PA Website

RE: water heater works fine - IF- I leave door open

Further screwing with this thing reveals that sometimes the gas valve opens but the spark don't spark, while other time the sparker sparks but the gas valve doesn't open. One fireball, luckily with the door open, is enough for me to get a qualified repairman. These details suggest circuit board valve track is issue

The air-gas mixture is fixed, not adjustable. Not only does Suburban but also Atwood/Dometic, Norcold for water heaters, fridges, furnaces etc And it is VERY Smart technology When the Flame ignites ti creates a current (Flame Rectification) Flame generated AC Current is rectified into a DC Current which the circuit board senses via the milliamp signal thru the Spark Electrode. All this takes place w/o further devices/equipment/sensors and happens within seconds of gas valve opening/spark electrode firing No flame proving signal....circuit board shuts down DC to gas valve---hence no excess raw fuel
