RE: Mini Swamp Cooler (Arctic Air) - Legit?

In general swamp coolers work well in arid climates, but don't work at all in humid climates. I think this is not understood by many people which is you get such varied opinion from people. I also think that the sellers of these type of system should do a better job of pointing out where they will and won't work. If you read most of the advertisements they are always great.

RE: 2012 Arctic Fox 990S

If you think that there is a shop manual that would be any kind of help you are dreaming. What you need is a manual for the monitor panel. If you can find a name and number you can usually find something on the internet. That being said if nothing including the battery level is working then I would think that it is a lack of 12 volts to the panel. The water pump would be a separate 12 volt than the monitor panel. I would look for a blown fuse.

RE: 3 axle break controller issues

You don't say how the brakes are wired to the second trailer so it is hard to know what is wrong but I think the problem is in the wiring between the two. I can't think of any way that type of setup would work even if the controller would supply juice. There is no way that you could adjust a controller to supply the different amount of voltage that would give each set of brakes an appropriate amount of voltage. One would always give more brakes than the other. If you were to adjust it so that the 5er brakes give a decent amount of stopping power you would lock up the atv trailer or vice-versa.

RE: Propane experts

It is also a regulator, it reduces the pressure to about 10 psi. It is a safety item so that there is not full tank pressure in the line going across the unit. It has failed and needs to be replaced.

RE: intermittent brakes

Don't try to feed new wire thru the axle. Just run it on the outside and use zip ties to hold it in place.

RE: Adjusting self adjusting brakes

Haven't heard back from OP, whether talking truck or trailer. His truck is new enough that it will have 4 wheel disc so the answer is trailer.

RE: intermittent brakes

The easiest way is to run new wire from the known good point to all the brakes. Just make sure you use large enough wire.

RE: Bilstein shocks, oh yeah.

Any new shock feels good after driving on worn out shocks. But the Bilstien's are better than most.

RE: Portable Camping Stove Design Issue

So what is the issue? Gas comes thru the small orifice and mixes with the air and travels to the burner where it is ignited. Can you hear gas coming thru the orifice before you try to light the burner? If not loosen the large brass nut at the bottom of the picture and see it you have gas flowing there. Work your way back till you find the problem.

RE: New Serpentine Belt?

If you have the ability and tools to change it on the side of the road then carry a spare. If not why bother?

RE: gas shortages along Interstates

A few days ago I received an email from Pilot/FlyingJ telling me which stations were out of gas, diesel, or both so there were some problems.

RE: Replacement axles

JM Onsite Repair from Gadsden had the axle I needed made within a few days when I had a problem.

If you have a sufficient number of jacks and jack stands or blocking it is a pretty basic job. The hardest part is getting the trailer off the ground and supported so that you can work safely. Also be sure that you install the wet bolts so the grease hole is horizontal otherwise you may have trouble getting grease into the bolts.

RE: Water Pump Tries But Fails to Pump Water

Sure sounds like a clog but I don't think it is at the pump. I would start by checking the aerators at the faucets. Also if you moved any of the winterizing valves make sure they are back to the correct positions.

RE: 50 amp RV outlet

It is probably even easier than pastor said. If it is NEMA 14-60 it is the same. Just make sure that it is wired correctly. the ground is the rounded pin. Neutral is opposite the ground, and the 2 pins on either side are power.

RE: Pinched Propane line ideas??

Yes those are flare fittings. The sealing is the tapered part that is down inside what you see. The threaded nut is used to clamp the two tapered parts which is where the sealing is done.

RE: Pinched Propane line ideas??

Most likely you will have flare fittings to hook to. Never use sealant on flare fittings. If you have threaded fittings then you need sealant. I would observe the line as the slide is moved in and out to see if a slightly longer or shorter hose would be less likely to kink. Then take the hose with you to your local propane dealer to have the hose you need made.

RE: Seatbelt grabs when its not suppose to ???

How level is the truck when setting in the driveway? Some of the seat belts use a pendulum to lock the belt and a substantial off level condition will lock them.

RE: Can't Find VIN # plate for 2003 Tahoe by Thor

The number on my pin box mounting is not a plate but just the number stamped into the steel. It is rather large numbers but not easy to see if the light is not right.

RE: Holding tanks

When the bathroom and galley are on different levels they will have separate gray tanks. If they didn't it would be easy to overfill the tank and it would leak out of the one on the lower level while you didn't realize it and keep using the one in the upper level.
