RE: has Forest River upgraded their furniture covering

Exactly what Bucky said. We are having the dinette cushions redone locally with quality material, $480. We are replacing the couch with theater seating from Lippert, $1100, with 5 year warranty. Can only hope that warranty isn't BS. The guy that is doing the cushions thought this a mistake, but hopefully he only wanted more business, and the new Lippert seating isn't ****.

has Forest River upgraded their furniture covering

2018 Rockwood 2606WS ... the faux leather junk on both the couch and the dinette has begun to disintegrate, pieces of covering littering floor. From what I"ve read elsewhere, 1000s of people have this issue, and are solving various expensive ways. Does anyone know if FR upgraded their furniture to make it more durable or is it still all junk?

RE: Decal replacement

As posted elsewhere, Marabu Classic coating is for graphics, to protect them.

RE: From whom does Rockwood get their tank heaters

What model relay, where purchased? This all gets back to what I originally posted, to find out what FACTORY KIT Rockwood used to install. No dice from Ultra Heat.

RE: From whom does Rockwood get their tank heaters

The 2606WS has 4 tanks, and if each tank has a heater drawing 9 amps 12VDC, then that means the panel switch has to handle 36 amps!! That seems impossible?

RE: From whom does Rockwood get their tank heaters

I wonder where I might get a diagram of what the Rockwood factory heater install looks like, as in what goes where, etc.

From whom does Rockwood get their tank heaters

It would seem there would be a 'kit' available for this option. Am having difficulty resolving who to contact. Not only would I need the heater pads, but also the switch that fits the existing panel. Also, from calling about, there seems to be some confusion regarding need to put tank heater on black tank. Frozen black tank does not seem to be overly fun situation.

RE: Question about tires

I have the Nokian HT One tires (51 psi max) on my 2016 RAM 1500. TT hooked up with WD. With 50 psi in rear and 40 front, rims are both at 24 1/4 inch high (top of rim to ground). With 44 in rear and 40 front, rear is at 24 and front at 24 1/2. So ... it seems advice to max rears is valid.

RE: WFCO Converter/Charger won't go to Float

After 72 hrs with no use of TT, still at 13.6, never went to float.

RE: WFCO Converter/Charger won't go to Float

Here is what WFCO says (and like howardwheeler above, no 13.2): "First, if your battery burned up just supplying 13.6 vdc to it, there was a problem with it such as a bad cell. A good battery should not have an issue with a constant 13.6 volts being supplied to it. With regard to the Float mode, if the load current being supplied from the converter is 5 Amps or less for 44 hours, then the converter will drop the output voltage to 13.2 vdc. Once in Float mode, any rise in output current draw above the 5 Amp level will cause the converter to go back to Absorption mode (13.6 vdc.). To go back into float mode again, the process would start over. Thanks and regards - Ted Krueger"

RE: WFCO Converter/Charger won't go to Float

Parasitic draw on my 2018 Rockwood 2606WS TT is 0.33 amps, which is apparently sufficient to keep the WFCO at 13.6V. Yes, I could turn off CO and propane detectors ... risking not turning them back on. Bad idea that. So the question is "does any converter drop to 13.2 over a 0.33A parasitic draw"? I'm thinking not. Although posts above say 13.6 not a problem, but 13.6 did burn up a battery when I didn't check the water level for 3 months. At 13.6 I can see slow out-gassing going on in all the cells. It would be nice if there was a button I could press and the voltage would drop to 13.2, overriding all this 'automatic' techno babble that doesn't actually work on modern RVs.

RE: water heater works fine - IF- I leave door open

It turned out that it was the igniter/sensor (DSI electrode). Replaced and works as it should. $11. Of course I needless replaced the controller ($90 with cover). And I stupidly thought while I was tearing things apart, might as well replace the switch ... which wouldn't come out, and wires too short, then wouldn't go back in. Just a tremendous pain for something that should have been easy, and in hindsight shoulda been left alone.

RE: water heater works fine - IF- I leave door open

Now I am in the "throw parts at it until fixed" mode. I replaced the controller with a $78 Dinosaur. Same problem. So ... I took the cover off the thermostat/ECO compartment, and the problem went away!! Theory is that the ECO has become overly sensitive (?) and I ordered a new one $17 to replace the right-hand switch which controls the propane mode. All of which sorta makes sense in a kinda nonsensical way. here is a good resource: https://manuals.heartlandowners.org/manuals/Troubleshooting%20Guides%20and%20Tips/Water%20Heater%20Troubleshooting%20-%20Suburban%20V1.3.pdf

RE: sewer hose that fits in bumper

As for "one that won't fit" I must assume that you are not storing your hose in the 3.75 inch ID bumper. Many don't fit, from experience. It turns out, I bought this in 2012, and it fits: Valterra EZ Coupler 20-Foot RV Sewer Hose Kit, Universal Sewer Hose for RV Camper, Includes 2 Attachable 10-Foot Hoses with Rotating Fittings and 90 Degree Clearview Sewer Adapter

sewer hose that fits in bumper

So .... what manufacturer/model/color-of-hose will fit into the 3 3/4 inch ID square bumper tube? I had a pair of 15 ft red hoses with black ends that fit ... that I bought 10 yrs ago, not realizing that plastic gets brittle after a while ... and it broke ... and I got a poopy bath. Yummmm. So want to replace. Somebody must know.....

RE: water heater works fine - IF- I leave door open

Wow. Learned something new, surprising at my age (72) and the fact I am a degreed chemist with 37 years experience in environmental science. Just when you think you know it all ... you don't!!! There is nothing in the Suburban manual that suggests the air/gas mix can be altered, and it doesn't look like it is possible.

RE: water heater works fine - IF- I leave door open

Further screwing with this thing reveals that sometimes the gas valve opens but the spark don't spark, while other time the sparker sparks but the gas valve doesn't open. One fireball, luckily with the door open, is enough for me to get a qualified repairman.

RE: water heater works fine - IF- I leave door open

"The RETURN millivolt signal for flame is NOT that strong and will be disrupted by a slight short to ground." Return signal? Are you saying that the Suburban design uses the spark apparatus as double duty for whether or not the flame lit? If true, that seems dumb. There does not appear to be any damage to the orange wire, looks new. The connection to the lug is shiny and clean. As suggested, I cleaned the burner tube. The air-gas mixture is fixed, not adjustable.

water heater works fine - IF- I leave door open

There are a lot of posts here about changing the control board, etc. But this has me stumped. Suburban SW6DEL. If I leave the outside door closed, it will light, then go out, will not re-light, will not heat the water. If I open the door, it will light, and heat the water up until hot then turn off (normal operation). If I open the door, it will light, and run UNTIL I close the door, and it turns off. WHAT?!?!?

Thanks to all. Will replace.
