RE: Northern Lite.

I am in the market for a used Northern Lite 9.6. Does this forum have a classified section? Does anyone know of one that is for sale or dealers west of the Mississippi who usually have a good stock in hand. I know of Toms camper land, but any others. Thanks. Go to iRV2 forums.

Northern Lite is an iRV2 sub forum.

RE: Curt Rockerball

Anybody used one of these yet? I saw them for the first time in the local farm and fleet store yesterday. Looks like it's got a small amount of shock absorbing capacity for a trailer that chucks back and forth. one of what?? I see no picture or link to anything.

RE: Basic Question About AC Power Wiring

Sounds like a transfer switch problem. Open the TS and check with a voltmeter while you are having the problem. Get to the wire connections. Also check all connections in the 120-volt breaker box.

RE: Basic Question About AC Power Wiring

I am guessing you have the truck camper with 30 amp shore power and no genset. I would start by checking the connections in the 120 volt AC power distribution panel. Pay close attention to the neutrals (white wires) in the back of the panel. I would suggest getting some electrical de-ox grease. Disconnect each wire, one at a time, check for brittle or melted insulation. If there is enough slack cut this portion off. Apply a good coat of de-ox grease, and re-terminate. Check connections on the circuit breakers in the same manner. Check the shore power connection in the small junction box. Make sure those are clean and tight. Coat connections in de-ox grease. Your cord may go straight to the 120 volt AC panel. Careful about using the AC and microwave at the same time. Check the cord body on the shore power cord for any signs of melting or black blades. OP stated that he has a transfer switch so not likely a truck camper

RE: Intellitec energy management system

Ranger Smith is correct. The intellect has nothing to do with the t-stat. It senses total amperage and turns off the electricity. .

RE: Adding Heat Strips

If you add heat strips you must add wire and breaker to carry the extra load of the strips. Also, thermostat to control them. Not a DIY job.

RE: 12 volt DC problem

if this is an MH did you accidentally turn off the battery disconnect?

RE: Do NOT use Flex Seal on your camper roof!

Figured I’d post this since I had a troubling conversation with my repair guy a couple weeks back when I picked up my camper after it was repaired following a minor collision last fall. We were discussing my long battle with a skylight leak in the bathroom and I mentioned that at one point I used flex seal spray as an emergency measure until I could do a proper repair with new butyl tape and Dicor and eternabond. He got all exited and told me that the “flex seal is great stuff! That’s the way to go!” And he used it on his parents’ leaky shed roof and its holding just fine. I nodded and told him it’s great for an emergency but from my firsthand experience, it becomes brittle, cracks, and eventually peels off when it’s been exposed to ultraviolet light for more than a few weeks. He apparently wasn’t aware of that. Ive been thinking about that conversation for a few weeks now and figured I’d post a thread about it to inform others who might be tempted to use flex seal as a permanent solution on camper roofs. DON’T! Even though the tv commercial shows a guy sealing a skylight, Even though your repair guy or dealer might tell you it’s great, Even though a website or blog extols it’s virtues, It is NOT a permanent solution!!!!! Emergency patch? Sure. But it WILL become brittle, crack, and peel off in a few weeks under UV light (sunlight). So please, PLEASE, don’t even think about using this stuff I place of lap sealant or eternabond. This has been a public service announcement. We now return to your regularly scheduled program.

RE: Arctic package black tank valve not shutting

some rigs the installer was too lazy to cut the cable down. Long cables cause tension.need them as short as possible.

RE: How did I do this? - Bent Ball Mount

It appears that you are using 2 sway bars. My guess is you backed up without releasing the tension of the sway bars. You need to release the tension always when backing up. You also do not need two sway bars. one sway bar puts tension on the other. Add some cheap Chinese steel and you have your answer. FYI Curt is Chinese junk if that is what that is.

RE: [SOLVED] Can an inverter on a car charge the house battery?

RE: Arctic package black tank valve not shutting

You must access from the bottom. Cut a 3 sided panel leaving the front side intact. Four bolts hold the valve in place. Repair with Gorilla tape when done.

RE: Replaced house batteries/no power

I'm guessing the inverter is hooked up backwards.

RE: GFIC tripping

simply plug into a non-gfi circuit. You are not plugged into a gfi circuit when on shore power in a campground.

RE: Dometic RV Toilet - Model 300

I understand that all 300 were recalled and replaced with 310's. Call the manufacturer.
