RE: Jayco Hot Water Heater Problem

If you have cold water flow at faucets then it is not the aerators being clogged Sounds more like the CHECK Valve in the WH Tank HOT outlet has failed (top fitting screwed into tank) They fall apart/clog up----stop flow out of WH Tank Replace OR better yet....remove completely and install a Hot water outlet shutoff valve.

RE: Commercial macerator or homemade from garbage disposer

Bought a Flojet Portable Macerator/pump back in 2008 Use it to pump waste tanks when parked at sisters/friends places Sisters is a 75' run with a 2' incline to clean out Pumps groundup waste just fine.........and will do so when 120VAC is not available

RE: Break away cable

Been placing the loop in the cable over the arm of hitch for 20+ yrs. Dang....didn't know it was 'incorrect' BS! Can be dangerous on some hitches. The cable can snag and pull the handle causing the hitch to release. Could be.....BUT NOT on mine Handle has to be pulled straight out to release AFTER the pin is removed and locking latch is lifted up out of the way Every 5th wheel hitch I have used the handle was pinned/latched in close position

RE: Where is #2 Black tank pull valve Crusader ?

What MODEL do you have? 2 waste tanks (1 grey/1 black)....handles for dumping should be in the 'universal docking center'

RE: 2004.5 Dodge 3500 towing capacity questions?

15K is OVER your tow capacity regardless of tires/clutches etc You still have truck AXLE weight ratings that will be maxed at 14K I have 3500 SRW,.....14K 5th wheel puts me right at RAWR and under Rear tire max load rating

RE: Black Ice Detectors

Constant downpour and 32*F does not make for black ice Surface temp below 32*F and a light rain makes for black ice formation (thin layer of ice where road surface shows thru) *Bridges, low areas are prime for 'black ice' Be attentive...look for pathes of road that looks NEW or DARKER then surrounding road area Tech Devices are available ....... Black Ice Devices...goggle

RE: water heater

Suburban uses separate set of T_stats for electric and propane. Both sets are 'pre-set for same temps (t-stat Opens at 130*F and closes at 100*F) So if temp is 'hot' (100*F-130*F) both t-stats will be open and no heating from either source will occur.

RE: water heater

For propane....it does not even attempt to light....no clicks!!! Checked all connections and still nothing. No red light comes for the switch ib the control panel. What a pain to get to the control board....take panel off inside the basement....wiggle your way in behind the furnace to get to the back of the water heater....geez.......what a design that is!! That is NOT fault of Suburban.that is directly due to RV MFGs installation and not propviding access. Thank them. Have you done ANY testing on where you have DC and where you DON'T? Could be No DC to Switch Could be bad switch Could be wire nut problem in DC Junction Box Could be bad T-stats..or wiring on t-stats Could be connection to circuit board Simple voltmeter and follow the DC circuit http://www.reallydoingthis.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/Screen-Shot-2014-12-29-at-10.37.59-AM.png height=400 width=400

RE: water heater

Before jumping to conclusions......do a little testing Use voltmeter and check for 12VDC at the t-stats (under the cover above gas valve...right side is the 12VDC set for the propane) DC comes from battery/dc dist fused source to the top t-stat (RED Wire) then goes to bottom t-stat via connection wire) Got DC to top and out bottom then check for it at the circuit board. No DC..then problem is back at On/Off switch OR from FUSED source. Suburban rarely have issues with the circuit boards ATWOOD DID Have for several years (2016 - 2018) due to change in vendor (Zhongding) Little DC testing will pin point the issue quickly. THen you can buy/fix what is broken vs throwing parts at it

RE: Typical problem we all see in RV parks.

Past three mornings had to leave early for appointments.....temps were 30*f/23*F/32*F SO after cycling the grid heaters 2X started the truck......placed it in NEUTRAL/Set cruise for High Idle/turned exhaust brake ON and let it warm up Exhaust temps at 600*F----cast iron block warmed up/coolant warmed up/engine oil warmed up/tranny oil warmed up and most importantly....CAB got warm 2 minute drive to Interstate and 75MPH run with a warm truck!!! Life happens...deal with it-----sheesh!

RE: Propane smell

With reg and cyclinders completely removed the smell will go away ......some propane may leak from the open line from where reg connected to main lp piping. Not sure why you removed the reg/cylinders but if leaving them out permanently then you should cap/plug the open line where reg was and another open line

RE: suburban furnace tripping on high temp

Furnace gas valve is just that a gas valve that is solenoid operated to OPEN the valve and allow flow based on orifice size and SYSTEM Pressure. It is NOT a regulating valve....OPEN or CLOSED is all it does. LP Regulator is called a regulator because it regulates the system pressure/flow based on DEMAND. High system pressure causes overfiring.

RE: suburban furnace tripping on high temp

Propane System Pressure 13"WC with furnace running?????? Too High/Overfiring

RE: Norcold fridge

Check the reset switch as a first measure. When you open to fridge compartment from the outside you will see 2 rubber buttons: one is the reset for propane and the other electric. They are not compatible with each other so do not try to switch them. Think you have a Suburban Water Heater confused with way Norcold Fridge is set up

RE: Norcold fridge

Start with the basics 120VAC Outlet fridge power cord plusg into.....does it have AC Power? (Voltmeter) NO...then find source of AC to that outlet and reset it (120VAC Circuit Breaker, GFCI etc) YES...then need to check if the 120VAC FUSE on fridge is blown. If blown..replace it and most likely need to replace heating element (reason fuse blew)
