RE: Dirty water in toilet bowl after sitting

Toilet has a vacuum breaker (small container with hole/flapper at top) After toilet is flushed the flapper opens an allows the water in vacuum breaker to drain down into bowl As noted: Should leave water in toilet bowel so seal doesn't dry out and the water is a Vapor Barrier so black tank odor doesn't come back up thru bowel Should also put 4-5 gallons of water BACK into black & grey tank so bottom stays wet...keeps stuff from drying out/sticking/stinking YES...there is some stuff left behind even when flushed

RE: Dometic RM3862 fridge

This is the burner ASSEMBLY (burner tube with spark electrode and mounting bracket) LARGE Hole in mounting bracket is where the Thermocouple is installed height=400 width=300 Spark Electrode Wire plugs into end of electrode and goes to 'reigniter box' (s/b grey wire) Thermocouple has 2 wires ----Black & Grey Black...ground ---goes to J10 terminal on circuit board (far right side) Grey ---DC millivolt ----goes to J3 terminal on circuit board (left side) Your fridge was part of the RECALL....stack temp switch installed and 2 red wires (DC In/DC Out) DC+ from terminal block to stack temp switch then back to circuit board J4 terminal. Switch Opens no DC to fridge (no functions, no lights, no display ---nothing)

RE: Fridge Assistance and Troubleshooting

You posted "....2020 travel trailer parked at a site for a few weeks." During that few weeks was trailer plugged into AC Shore power and had good 12VDC Power? Was fridge being operated in 'AUTO' mode? Norcold N8X......part of the Polar Series BOS (Backup Operating System) allows fridge to continue to cool if temp sensing is lost. But it uses a 'timed base' heating cycle vs a 'temperature based' cycle Time based can be changed by increasing (colder) or decreasing (less colder) Temp Set point Bad thermistor/unplugged thermistor results in BOS but fridge should have still being functioning External Thermostat/Fan is 'OPTIONAL' It is a must need if fridge is in a slideout It is a nice to have if fridge uses a roof vent Thermostat is attached to condenser fin...closes at 130*F FIN Temp (starts fan) and opens at 115*F FIN Temp (stops fan) In order to see if you have Fan Option check wiring on lower circuit board P1 8 pin connector (bottom of board) Pin #1 ----- 12VDC Ground Pin #6 ----- 12VDC POS *Pin Numbers go right to left No Error Code? W/O it flashing any codes it is hard to guess what is going on Could be circuit board, could be upper display, could be harness between the two etc Troubleshooting starts on pg 29 thru 34 for 'X' models Go thru those checks and see if something turns up Norcold 7/8 Polar Series

RE: 5G cell phones, need to purchase?

short answer: no ^^^^^^^^^^THIS^^^^^^^^^^^ Someday we will all be using 5G (or Elon's satellites) but today is not that day. I'll keep my 2 tin cans and string for as long as I can Then I will just not get/make phones calls...heck I rarely even turn my flip phone on Luddite and proud of my lack of high tech stuff Life is actually simpler

RE: Dometic RM3862 fridge

Thermal switch on stack TRIPS from overheating...NO Auto Reset When tripped ALL DC is secured Your model uses a spark electrode to provide ignition of gas AND a thermocouple to prove flame is lit Bad thermocouple, bad connections flame signal so circuit board dumps DC to gas valve Gas Valve solenoid resistance Remove the connectors from the solenoid and measure the resistance across the terminals. The proper reading would be 49 ohms with tolerance range of ten percent. Thermocouple millivolt readings To check the flame sense circuit of the lower circuit board, operate the refrigerator on GAS mode, then measure the millivolts between J3 terminal and the other wire connection from the thermocouple. The millivolt meter should read between 25 to 35 millivolts with the gas flame burning. Any reading below 18 millivolts could cause erratic gas operation. Thermocouple Dometic 2932052018 Lowest price I have seen Service Manual

RE: Furnace low voltage limit

Low DC Voltage will cause fan RPM to be low and not move sufficient airflow to move sail switch 'paddle' and close the micro switch More common issue is dirty/stuck sail switch 'paddle' Fan gets DC Voltage when t-stat closes NOTHING else is going to happen until airflow move sail switch paddle and closes it So clean the paddle ...check that is not hanging up on casing and that micro switch closes All good.....then Low DC Voltage is suspect What brand/model is YOUR furnace?????

RE: Are truck/trailer rims a weak link?

Other than some serious off-road/rock climbing I have never broken a rim, truck or trailer Have bent one rock crawling when I slip down but didn't break the tire bead But then I don't run aluminum rims.....steel only

RE: Atwood water heater won't stay on.

A guy came to me once with that kind of problem once. I asked him if he had filled the water heater tank with water. He disappeared, for a couple of minutes then came back and turned water heater on, all worked fine then. 'trailrider' asked that question back on Pg 1 9/12/2020 and no direct answer. "The obvious question is: "Is the water heater full of water?"

RE: Atwood water heater won't stay on.

"After shut down for about 10-15 minutes the WH ignites again, the red light does NOT come on, runs for about a minute or so then shuts down again. This is a gas only WH, no electric." One of 2 things Spark electrode is also used as flame proving signal return Electrode soot/carbon will impede the milliamp flame signal that circuit board must sense or it drops DC to gas valve Clean tip using emery cloth Circuit Board.......valve track on circuit board is failing Contact Atwood (Dometic) and inquire as to getting a new board...they have had some issues and replace them for free.

RE: Bad air quality--finally taped a house filter on the A/C

Is that on the Return side? YES...then you will end up with diminished return airflow which can lead to Evap Coil Icing up especially with fan speed on low RV A/C Units are 'recirculating' units...inside air gets sucked in/cooled down/discharged back inside You source of smoke is via bad slide seals, open roof vents, open windows, entry door leaks etc It's not from the A/C Unit.

RE: What to make of this......

"....the pay comes right along at payment times, no problem there." that is not the issue. YOU were place in jeopardy Pack up, get off that work site and then e-mail her with your reasons for leaving and convey that you will not return until dogs are caged/kenneled/placed in a secure area so another incident can't occur. E-MAIL so you have it in written form and any response from her And/Or text but KEEP the text ro/from her In writing vs vocal wins

RE: Norcold fridge

The 8A GLASS Fuse is for the 120VAC Circuit......electric elements --TWO of them Unplug the element leads for circuit board....then replace fuse If it blows...circuit board 120VAC Circuit is shorted If it does NOT blow.........element is shorted ---have to replace BOTH

RE: Atwood water heater won't stay on.

Suburban uses the Fault Light ON when switch is turned ON then it goes out when trial for ignition occurs then will come back on IF flame fails Atwood?????? Fault light is triggered by a fault...flame failure or ECO Fault Light Should NOT come on when 1st turning switch on See pg 21 for testing 'Power Track', 'Lamp Test', 'Valve Track' Atwood Service Manual
