RE: Towing 7500lb trailer w/ 48" stinger?

Hi, for only 3-500 lbs of tongue weight you will be good. The 48" Torklift extension is good for up to 600 lbs without weight dist.

RE: Michelin Defender LTX Discontinued ??

I tried to get them about 6 months ago and the dealer could no longer get them. Too bad as I really liked those tires.

RE: Water heater issues

1. If you have 12 volts on the Brown AND NEG(GROUND) at the Green the board is bad 2. WHERE did you get your replacement Board? The reason I ask is, Atwood(Dometic) had hundreds of thousands of BAD boards a few years ago and they pulled ALL replacement boards from suppliers and replaced the Boards on all WH stock. DEALERS(Service Centers) if they had any sense(a lot don't) could send in their bad replacement boards and Dometic would replace them. But, since some business's are not honest, or just stupid, they would then sell those bad boards or someone on the Internet got hold of those bad boards and would sell them on the Internet. Because of this I would advise ANYBODY to not buy Dometic WH control boards off the Internet for a few more years. These BAD Boards did work but would fail after a few days/months. Some did fail at first operation. There is now way for Dometic to track the BAD boards. There is NO way for you or anybody to determine good new boards from the bad boards. It would appear you got a bad replacement board. DougHi, sadly I did order the second board from the internet (E-BAY). when I first jumped the thermal fuse all I got was a buzzing sound. I put the original board back in and it fired right up. Thank you.

RE: Water heater issues

That WH-G6EA is a brand new revision...Dometic FINALLY moved the electric element/DC Relay from backside to Front of WH Tank....YEAH WH...(Product ID_ G ...(GAS) 6 ...(Volume) E ...(Electric) A ...(Revision) Combustion/Exhaust 'U' Tube is now Stacked vs the Diagonal on previous version (to make room for DC Relay/Element DC Relay/Element is under that cover on right bottom area in outside compartment height=400 width=400 Wiring scheme is same as a GC6A-10E/GC10A-4E versions (from 2004--present) So you verified that you have 12VDC from On/Off Switches to circuit board Orange wire....Gas White wire ....Electric You verified you have 12VDC on Brown wire from circuit board to/thru thermal fuse, to/thru T-stat and back to circuit board via Brown wire Did you remove that 2A fuse and verify it has continuity? Second Board not working either Thermal Fuse (in clear tube) if blown will stop ALL DC back to circuit board Remove it and jumper Brown wire straight to T-stat 2A fuse protects the circuit board So if blown then there is a short in circuit board 2 Boards...doubtful Check ALL the ground connections Pin 6 & 5 height=400 width=400Hi, thank you for all the info. You win the prize. I jumped that thermal fuse and it fired right up. Thank you all for your support in figuring this out.

RE: Water heater issues

I only have an old WH but it does have the board with a 2 amp fuse. I think you are saying you by-passed the big plug with the pos wires that goes into the circuit board, and went to the fuse and then it all worked. It can happen that plug, if it slides onto the edge of the board, loses good contact. Cure is to pull it off, clean off the contact part on the board and anything in the plug contacts and put it back on. Wiggle it some, see if that gets you contact again.HI, I tried to wiggle them around thinking it might be a loose connection but didn't work. Thank you.

RE: Water heater issues

Which hot wire did you jumper to the fuse and then it worked? That means the wire or where it is from is no good, not the fuse or the board. Whyinheck would you buy a new board for that? Or else I misunderstand ?Hi, I tried the top 3 wires going into the board, the brown which goes to the t-stat, the white and orange from both interior switches. all 3 were hot when the gas and electric switches are on and that is what I jumped from. No power after that point to the fuse. I dont know much about these and assumed it was the board.

Water heater issues

HI, brand new camper with a Dometic water heater model # WH-6GEA gas and electric. Dealer is 400 miles away and I'm not leaving it for 6 months lol. Heater worked for 3 days and then quit. I have power from both switches and T-stat going into control board but there is nothing at the 2 amp fuse on the board. I used a jumper from one of the hot wires directly to the fuse and it fired right up. Bought a 2nd board and have the same issues, possibly another bad board? Thanks in advance for help.

RE: Is it a good time to sell?

We'll, we will see about how good the sellers market is today, I just put up my camper for sale on CL. Wish me luck? Ron W.Hi, although I did list both of mine on CL I hardly got any calls. It was RV trader that had my phone blowing up. Thanks for the info. Was it easy to set up a RV Trader account and download pics?. I seem to remember it was much harder to get going than CL. Ron W.Hi, it was very easy. I did it all off of my phone.

RE: Is it a good time to sell?

Hi, I listed both my camper and fifth wheel 2 weeks ago, both sold within a week for asking price. Got more calls than I could handle on both of them. The downside is it took me a while to locate and buy my new camper.

New Host Mammoth

Well we did it, sold Lance camper and our toy hauler. Bought a 2013 Ford F350 DRW 6.7 and 2021 Host Mammoth. We pick up the camper next weekend at Toms Camperland in AZ. Hopefully the truck is up to par. Adding Timberins, upper and lower stabiloads. Cant wait.

RE: Toy Hauler for 2 SxSs

HI, I am sorry as I was only commenting on the width not the length. They load with the slides out then bring them in after they get out. It is tight though.

RE: Toy Hauler for 2 SxSs

Unfortunately none of the Genesis have the required cargo space, the garages are long enough but with all the slide outs, etc, they will not accommodate a 72" wide UTVHi, I have 3 friends that have various Genesis models with 72" can-ams and Rzrs and they fit them just fine with no modifications.

RE: What's your favorite camp chair?

We have camping chairs from Sam's Club. $22 each and the most comfortable weve ever used.
