RE: California DL towing an Exactly 10,000 lb GVWR trailer

You can tow 10K or Under with your Class C Drivers License You can NOT tow a 10,001# with your Class C DL SIMPLE....

RE: norcold

Check the settings on your fridge... Once turned on, you should be able to choose how the fridge is powered... just had my MH in for service, and my tech recommended I always run fridge on propane, not AC (don't forget to turn your inverter on)... What was his reasoning for only propane??

RE: norcold

If it works on AC then it has 12VDC ...for display, interior light, controls and propane system Doesn't work on propane..... Could be several items. Details would be helpful Model of Norcold Has it been a while since you tried propane....might take several attempts to get gas flow Does it SPARK Does Flame light and then go out Does flame light, stay lit but fridge doesn't cool/gets warm Details cause it could be something simple/cheap or more expensive

RE: Hot Water Question

That Suburban doesn't use a mixing valve Does same issue...hot/warm/cold happen when using city water via hose? Water heaters use dip tubes to direct cold inlet down and take hot off top area of water level If either dip tube has broken/fallen off the hot/cold mix and can quickly dilute the hot out Suburban Diffusers Cold Inlet....#171054 Hot Outlet...#171509 Installed from exterior of tank via cold inlet/hot outlet ports I'll check for those this afternoon. How hard are they to install? Any instructions would help. Why would my water work without the pump or city water hooked up? I appreciate you! Diffusers are installed from the outside of tank Disconnect water line Remove any fittings on tank inlet/outlet Remove the broken diffuser 'flange' Slip new diffuser in thru the opening...reassemble fittings/lines AS to water flow w/o pump/city water IF you do NOT have a hose connected and the pump is OFF how much flow are we talking about? W/O Pump ON and NO city water hose connected then flow from a faucet should only be a short burst from system pressure then just a trickle to nothing IF--IF you have an 'accumulator tank' (small tank on cold water system) then flow would be a bit longer but dwindle after a short duration.

RE: Need freezer seal ideas

Clean seals thoroughly Place cotton balls under each corner Warm seal thoroughly using hair dryer When the complete seal is warm....close freezer door and let seals 'reset' After seal has cooled remove cotton balls and check for leakage

RE: Hot Water Question

Brand/Model would be helpful? Water is HOT until you turn pump on...then luke warm...cold How do you know it is HOT to begin with? Does it stay HOT using city water? Same hot--warm--cold at ALL Faucets? Does water heater have 'heat exchanger' or 'motor-aid' system? HOT water becoming warm/cold HAS to be diluted by cold water: Either via WH TANK 'ByPass', via shower knobs not being closed, via clogged mixing valve. *only places cold can get into hot plumbing lines

RE: Water tank wire mystery

thanks guys, i didnt need a complete wiring schematic, I just needed to know the 3 wires that connect to the battery or switch. I hooked it all up and the burner lit just fine. https://photouploads.com/images/Ecg4.jpg width=500 And that info was provided.

RE: Water Heater Mixing Valve Issue

Remove the mixing valve and replumb. Remove the thermostat and replace it with a standard 140° stat. Those mixing valve systems from Atwoods were nothing but a problem from the get-go. Richard XT Models (Mixing Valves) use a 160*F T-stat as mentioned replace with a standard Atwood T-stat (140*F) should you delete the mixing valve You will also need to change out the t-stat Brown wire connector from a 'PIN' type (used on XT) to a 'Small Spade' type (used with the 140*F T-stat Mixing Valve in concept is/was a good idea......higher water temp allows more available hot water due to outlet temp controlled to 130*F from Mixing Valve Unfortunately scale/calcium in water source clogs up the Hot inlet side of Mixing Valve causing luke warm/cold water output

RE: Dometic fridge WITHOUT thermostat

He is saying when you are set to propane only there are no lights. It only turns orange when propane fails to light. Correct BUT...if you are set to "Auto" then the "auto" stays on regardless of whether you are running on elec or gas. Only when the auto/gas button is in the "gas" position are no lights on. The "check" light is separate from the "auto" light. CORRECT! OP... As for that 'white thing' That is the CLIP ...thermistor goes inside that clip with just the tip protruding from top of clip Clip with thermistor goes on far right fin Try Mid Fin Position 1st...wait 24 hrs and then check fridge temps Adjust UP for Colder Adjust DOWN for Warmer W/O clip/thermistor attached to fin fridge thermostat doesn't get any temp feed back so it continues to call for cooling...hence a very cold fridge (food compartment freezing items)

RE: trailer brakes failed, any brake experts on here?

Sounds like brake controller and/or brake power wire to truck 7 pin is failing/shorting Throws codes w/o trailer connected Need to disconnect brake controller and check continuity on the Brake Power Wire from controller plug to the 7 pin on truck No continuity then that wire is shorted some where on truck Tekonsha Proportional Brake Controllers

RE: Dometic fridge WITHOUT thermostat

OK, that seems weird though. We never have hookups and our fridge is always running on propane and always have lights on. (But then again I've never had a fridge without a thermostat either) Fridge has a 'thermostat' ----ALL fridges do That model just doesn't have a means of adjusting the temperature range When ON propane the only display lights would be CHECK and you dont; want to see that one ON No lights...fridge cold ...all good *Yes there should be some indication that fridge is ON other than a fault light when it is NOT working. Stupid design!
