RE: Dometic heater

Place the fan control on the thermostat on "AUTO". YEP^^^ Fan control on thermostat is for the A/C Unit Fan. In Auto the Fan runs when A/C runs In Manual (high or low) fan runs when A/C runs BUT will also run when furnace runs. Idea is A/C Fan 'helps' circulate the warm air from furnace (heat rises) But in reality it just cools the wram air and provides no benefit plus it's noisey.

RE: Dometic RM2551 fridge won't operate on propane

Flame should be strong BLUE and reach just inside the flue https://www.arprv.com/image-arp/norcold-gas-valve/flame-adjustment.jpg height=300 width=300 Remove burner assembly Clean burner tube/slots Clean orifice (soak in alcohol...then air dry (***NO POKING anything thru OR High Pressure Air) If flame still small..... LP System Pressure S/B 11"WC with at least 50% of other propane appliances in service Test port on fridge gas valve for connecting Manometer

RE: Dometic RM2551 fridge won't operate on propane

Cooling Unit 'Perk Tube' is he boiler section where HEAT is transfered and boils the ammonia into hot vapor Electric element transfers that heat via conduction....element get hots, heats the element sleeve which is welded to perk tube and heats the ammonia inside \\ Propane Flame generates heat which is absorbed by the flue baffle which then transfers the heat via radiation Flame should just reach up inside bottom opening of flue At top of flue should be a FLUE CAP/TOP It slows the heat rising up from flame so baffle has opportunity to absorb the heat generated. W/O FLUE CAP heat rises/escapes to quickly...therfore less is absorbed and trransfered to boil the ammonia http://dave78chieftain.com/RVCoolingUnit/coolunitsm.gif height=500 width=300

RE: What do you leave behind when gone for the day?

To put a different twist to this-I arrived at an RV campground in B.C.-went into the office to check in and make final payment for site-had all ready put a credit card deposit down-and sign paperwork. Went to reserved site and there was another RV in it-totally hooked up. Went back to office to find out what was going on-they had a 1:00 PM vacate site policy. The previous renter's RV was still there but the owners were not. It was hot-mid afternoon-and we were tired. Office said the site should be vacant-there were no other sites available. They tried to reach RV owners-no luck. Thankfully, the owners came back about 6:30 P.M.-gave the office some excuse for still being there-unhooked and left. It was a tough afternoon and evening. Office was apologetic. We moved into site and that was that. And as a resolution the CG Staff should have CHARGED the late departure 1 day site fee AND refunded you the 1 day fee.

RE: Hot water tank

You have a Suburban Water Heater Inside On/Off Switch with Light is for the propane side....need propane valved in service AND 12VDC Power IF it is a combo unit...electric & propane----the Electric On/Off Switch is in the Outside Compartment. Lower Left corner behind/below gas valve Need 120VAC Power for the electric to work. **No DC needed for AC side (The 110 15A is just enough for element provided other AC demands are off----1440W element/13A when energized) Above the gas valve is a Cover with Push to Reset buttons. Behind cover are the Sets of T-stats for electric & propane High Temp T-stat is a manual reset if it trips (180*F)....if tripped you will feel resistance when pushing in on buttons Left side is the 120VAC Set (electric) Right side is the 12VDC set (propane)

RE: Tv antenna upgrade questions

The 'signal diverter box'----BOMB (Box of Many Buttons) with a 12VDC power source to it will supply the Winegard Atenna Head with power for the amplifier in the head of antenna VIA the coax cable With 12VDC coonected to BOMB you turn it ON for power to amplifier. If using cable connection you turn it OFF

RE: Fresh water drain

According to Jayco Manual 3.Open the “fresh tank drain” valve. All fresh water tanks can be drained by one of two types of drain valves. A white plastic drain is attached to the exterior wall or a valve located inside the RV adjacent to the water tank (turn 45° to open or close). 4.Open the “low point drains” by turning, then pulling the handles up. They are installed at the lowest point of the water lines. A label is placed on the outside of the RV to indicate where the drains are located. The drains will need to be operated from inside the RV. Once the label is found on the exterior sidewall, the drains will be found at a corresponding location in the interior Scavenger hunt! Good luck.

RE: How do you really judge TV adequacy anymore?

The ole 1/2, 3/4 1 ton designations no longer apply.......haven't for YEARS What does apply is 'CLASS' Ratings GVWR Ranges define CLASS Class I-------up to 6000# Class II--------up to 10,000# Class III----------up to 14,000# GVWR minus UVW equals Payload For ME........I go by Axle/Tire Load Ratings to determine WHAT Can I Tow?

RE: Check valve location

I would put it on the intake side of the pump, so the pump stays full of water. YOMV Exactly ^^^^^ IF pump internal check valve is leaking and you put a check vlave in-line on discahrge side of pump the pump casing will depressurize and pressure switch will close causing pump to short cycle. If you put that check valve in-line on pump suction side then pump casing stays pressurized and pump will only start when SYSTEM pressure drops from opening a faucet etc (OR leak in system) OR FIX pump internal chekc valve

RE: Anode rod necessary ?

Old biscuit, yes it is a 6 gallon Atwood. It is hotter than the dickens. Fortunately, it is well insulated so we run it for 15 in the morning and we are good all day or until we do dishes. T-stat controls heat cycles......OPENS at 140*F/Closes for reheat at 110*F ECO (Energy Cut Off---HIGH temp t-stat) Opens at 180*F/triggers FAULT Light (t-stat recloses at 150*F but FAULT Light has tobe manually reset) Options are available> Atwood has a 130*F optional T-stat (Atwood 91470) Some websites will list it as 120*F but that is incorrect.....no 120*F available discontinued years ago) Atwood Adjustable 110*F - 150*F T-stat (Atwood 93105)

RE: When to Shut the Fridge Off

Off level operation...even for as little as 15 minutes....causes overheating Overheating causes the sodium chromate to crystalize and plate out. Plating out causes obstructions which inhibits coolant flow which causes more overheating ---repeat the damage cycles over and over and over Off level damage is accumulative and PERMANENT (crystals do NOT go back into solution) Old fridges, new fridges....doesn't matter. Process is the same. ARP real time monitoring shows just how quickly the boiler temp WILL increase due to off level operation. Plain and simple. It happens and it causes damage.
