RE: Fresh Tank Filling on City Water

FILL Valve....leaking thru

RE: Fresh Tank Filling on City Water

The water pump functions as a check valve and it isn't working right. Most of the time the problem is the pump has sucked up a piece of junk from the tank (plastic bits form assembly). If you're handy, simply take the head of the pump apart and rinse all the parts off (water off of course). You probably wont even see the problem but it will work afterwards. If not, you're not out anything. Possible ----could be check valve inside the pump (single diaphragm) BUT OP didn;t have the problem UNTIL he messed with the FILL Valve

RE: Ideas wanted to secure non fixed kitchen island

Place it Mid floor......close slides/check for any issues with slides or counter. If Good......Screw that rolling cabinet to the floor permanently https://spec.dlrwebservice.com/sb-rv/floorplan/2014_ForestRiver_BlueRidge_3025RL.jpg height=300 width=500

RE: Fresh Tank Filling on City Water

FILL valve.....if swapped from City To FILL with water supply on the o-rings in the FILL Vlave can get disloadged.....LEAK thru filling fresh water tank I haven't used City Water connection since 2008 Always fill tank and use the pump Consistant pressure/flow PLUS if pump short cycles you know you have a leak (City water just continues to run until RV is flooded by unknow leak) Using the fresh water tank/pump isn't just for boondocking! Course with FILL Valve leaking thru the PUMP may continue to RUN because system pressure not high enough to shut pump off Water from pump 'round-robin' thru Fill valve---low pressure depending on how bad FILL Valve leaks thru

RE: Norcold 641 Moisture Reduction Heater Question

Low Ambient Heater is for 'cold/freezing' camping It is a heated wire that is thread up/attached to cooling coils to keep the 'coolant' warm so fridge will operate in sub 32*F temps The .3 in your model (N641.3R) indicates a DC Heater (30A) The 'R'-----haven't a clue

NO..there is NO On/Off Switch for the Moisture Reduction Heater' It is ON when Fridge is ON .11 to .17 amp draw Automatic Ignition .50A Interior Light .60A Gas Valve .14A 3A thermal switch would be for Ice Maker/////water line heater

RE: Do y'all see the IRONY here?

Interesting, none of you noticed that it is a BMW at a charging station with a big generator behind, I wonder how much power that thing generates so that the vehicle can travel what? 200 miles and how much time and fuel does it requiere for a full charge from the generator. navegator way2roll mentioned it in post.... gtnsmlr mentioned it in post No the IRONY was not missed

RE: Do y'all see the IRONY here?

Had a conversation about solar power and electric cars last week with a friend of mine who works for the weighs and means department. He adamantly agreed with me that neither residential solar power or electric cars are good for the environment. Long story short, the process to manufacture solar panels and electric car batteries uses so much resources, and the manufacturing process produces a lot of waste and very caustic chemicals, the lifespan of the products and their subsequent disposal is not only costly it's often hazardous - all of these (and more) points mean that solar power and electric cars are not eco friendly, often they're worse. And not losing the irony in the OP's pic, electric cars still need a power source to charge them - and that is often fossil fuel. So you are not only just transferring the production of power and all it's existing carbon impacts, you've now created new waste. Electric cars make a lot of people sleep better at night thinking they are saving the planet, but they aren't. It's akin to cutting down acres of forest to put up a solar farm. SPOT ON!

RE: Atwood 10 Gallon GC10A-4E ** A couple of problems!

Clean tank wall before installing new t-stats? T-stats TIGHT against tank wall or temp to open will be higher Can't reverse the ECO and t-stat----use different size spade connectors/terminals Have you let it run until t-stat OPENS or ECO Opens? Electric.... No DC on YELLOW Wire Relay bad AC wires on Relay bad Bad element Bad ground wire connection Follow the DC....then the AC https://nebula.wsimg.com/obj/RTRCMkU0RDUzQ0M1ODE3RDgxMDg6YjcxODcxNGMwMGY1YjAzODVhNjY0NWNmMTFjMTg5YzY6Ojo6OjA= height=400 width=400

RE: Wierd bathroom water problem

The first thing I'd check is to see if there's a check valve in the outlet of the water heater. If you have just one valve to change to winterize, you probably have a check valve. The check valve has a small disk that blocks the flow of water back into the water heater. That disk is plastic/nylon and is held in place with a spring. I've seen several of them come loose from the spring and lodge in the outlet of the water heater. It's hard to get to the back of the water heater to get at the check valve. There's no maintenance. You must replace it. I found a replacement with a metal disk right next to ones with the plastic disk. Choose carefully. HOT water works....OP has issue with COLD to bathroom sink and toilet OP.... Tolet sprayer works (as desgin---only when toilet is flushing) but you have low flow to toilet. That suggests toilet inlet to bowl/rim is plugged up with minerals/debris Same with that cold side of faucet.

RE: Changing Atwood water heater plug to brass

I've had less than stellar results with the anode rod / petcock drain plug device The petcock self destructed and became useless I don't like the reduced flow on these. Seeing one fall apart is just another reason to stick with the nylon plug, IMHO. That link is for a Suburban Brand that uses an anode rod. Petcocks reduce the flow and do not allow for crud/scale to exit from the tank DFORD has a simple modification that does NOT hinder draining And IF you want to really move the crud out......remove the drain plug and turn water supply ON. Cold inlet dip tube points down...full pressure will stir the bottom of tank up and BLAST it out the drain hole (especially on an Attwood with only a 1/2" hole)

RE: How to lose an awning

YEP..........good way to get it torn up Did you stop and talk with the folks that the awning could be torn/damaged/ripped from their RV or just post here? Be a helpful neighbor and have a talk....they surely do not KNOW that it is an issue (for whatever reason----stupidity/just not thinking etc) Lack of Communication thread
