RE: Living Room Recliner Removal (1985 Sportscoach III)

Have you pulled up the glued carpet on the chair base? There should be 4 bolts that go thru the floor that will have nuts and washers outside underneath. Doug Click this link. This should be what you have although taller.

RE: Gas Valve Solenoid on Dometic RM 763 Fridge

Odds are from your pics, the newer valve is a ELECTRODE sensor type flame sensor which plugs into the control module. YOUR existing Gas valve has a older type THERMOCOUPLER connection to tell the gas valve to stay OPEN. So, just the Gas valve by itself will not work. You need to ask Dino if the pictured Board and gas valve will update to a Electrode based Flame sensor. Doug

RE: Ac is acting funky. Anyone have any thoughts :)

From the 20 amp to the unit? 20 amp? That's your service? Voltage can be checked just about anywhere. IF you are NOT on 30 amp service for most of your usage(you stated 20 amp), THAT usually means you are not connected to a correct supply source and that also means your supply voltage will drop when running the RV AC unit. RV AC units require a MINIMUM of 20 amp service just for the AC unit, not including other 120 appliances in the RV. That means you should be on 30 amp common RV service. NO EXTENSION CORDS AT ALL. Extension cords will drop the available voltage and a drop in voltage will cause a AC Compressor relay to "fuse" closed and cause the compressor to not shut OFF. Doug

RE: Ac is acting funky. Anyone have any thoughts :)

Thank you again. When I turn just the fan on the Ac compressor stays on as well. So it’s like the ac is on constantly, weather in ram only, or ac. I’m sorry. In my phone and spell correct is killing it LOL Air nor ram. And whether not weather. :) Your upper AC control board is BAD. You need to replace it. Doug

RE: Ac is acting funky. Anyone have any thoughts :)

1. Freezing of the coil will cause a LOSS of air flow 2. IF the compressor does NOT shut off unless you kill the breaker, odds are the compressor relay is stuck ON. This is part of the upper AC control board and if this is true you have to replace the upper control board. 3. If you could post year/brand/model of RV and Brand and Model of AC unit. This would help us help you with more info. Doug

RE: Generator gas overflow even after changing regulator

So the previous owner had put the wrong fuel pump on. I replaced that, so I think that solved the gas issue. Still having a weird issue with the oil pressure. I drained it and I can only get half a quart or so in. It’s weird that it builds oil pressure. The reason I asked is simple. ONAN fuel pumps even tho they LOOK like other aftermarket fuel pumps are LOWER PSI pumps. So, people buy and install that CHEAPER than Onan fuel pump with the higher PSI and they may have problems. Not always, but you have an unusual problem. Remember ALL the fuel pump does is force GAS to the Carb bowl. THEN the Float needle jet opens and closes the fuel to the bowl. IF you have TOO MUCH fuel, then the Onan will not run(flooded). So, HOW do you think the fuel is getting to the Crankcase? Doug

RE: Generator gas overflow even after changing regulator

Onan fuel pressure is 3.5 to 4.0 psi. Is this a brand new Onan or one you purchased used. Doug

RE: how long to lower temps When living quarters at 100

Just to dispel some myths....37' non slide well insulated motorhome, two 15,000 btu roof top airs, awnings out, shares down, exterior window shades and a misting system on patio awning. The place, Pahrump, Nevada, the outside temp, hovering at about 115, inside RV, 68 degrees! I've owned our motor home for close to 20 years and I travel in hot it's not a one time occurrence! The myth dispelled....that air can only cool down 20 degrees below outside temp! The accepted rule of thumb is 20 degrees less than the Ambien air entering your return air duct of your unit( up to its max cooling ability). That's my real world experience and my I understanding as to how it all works....your results will, in fact, vary!! LoL You are correct BUT, you cannot compare your RV and length to RV's built LONGER (43 versus your 37) AND you have no slides Which is a GOOD thing because slide rooms are big air leakers even if they do not leak water inside.

RE: how long to lower temps When living quarters at 100

20 degrees refers to the output cold air in relation to the input hot air NOTHING TO DO WITH AMBIENT OUTSIDE AIR TEMP. So, you get your hot RV and it is 105 INSIDE. You start your AC units and the air running thru the evap will be 105 degrees and the output at the vents after running 15 minutes will be 85 degrees. AS the RV cools down the input and output temps will be 20 degrees. The RV starts to cool down and it is now 100 degrees in the RV. Odds are the 100 degrees is now the INPUT and the cold air output will be 80 degrees. The downward COLD progression will continue at this 20 degrees until the unit has reached its max low cold air output depending on the outside Heat and Humidity and how well the RV is insulated. Doug

RE: norcold n1095 refrigerator wont stay OFF

IF this was the original problem, I would have suspected the Eyebrow/Optical board. Doug

RE: We are new to Rving---help with Aladdin System & Weldex

Even tho almost 250 pages if you do NOT have the owners manual you need to print it out since you are new to RV'ing. Doug

RE: We are new to Rving---help with Aladdin System & Weldex

2006 did not have Alladin. 2007 did. You may have a later 2006 built just before the 2007 went into production. This is the owners manaul and page 114 is the start of the Alladin operation. Doug

RE: AC Question For Doug

When the OEM supplies a prewire, they rarely connect the 12 volt POS and NEG to a power source. Doug

RE: AC Question For Doug

There are some RVP systems that utilize 8 volts to the tstat from the upper control board and THAT is normal. BUT only for the older mechanical wall tstats and not for more current LCD display. What I would do in your case is remove the Tstat and add 2 wires from the POS and NEG and connect to a Volt meter and see if the voltage drops from 12 volts when you experiance the DIMMING. IF NOT, then I would say the tstat is bad. If it does drop you have a bad ground or POS connection somewhere. Even the minimal milliamp draw of the tstat LCD causing a volt draw would be amazing to cause a bad connection to cause the volt drop. But, I guess it can happen. Maybe your GROUND to the tstat is NOT a real ground. Another way, is to run a 2 wire connection from your 12 volt fuse center and connect 12 volt POS and NEG at the Fuse center and run to the tstat to verify a GOOD voltage connection. You stated YOU did not run the tstat wires. Doug

RE: how long to lower temps When living quarters at 100

43 foot RV whether 5th or Motorhome requires 3 roof AC units in hot weather. Doug

RE: AC Question For Doug

Try this. Make SURE you have 12 volts and NOT 8.1 volts. Doug

Never seen this. WHICH RVP Tstat do you have. They have about 20. Doug

RE: Coach step inc issues

I call that gear a "pie" gear. It is available from both LCI and E trailer. BUT!!!!!!! Have you had the recall done? It IS needed. This does not involve your current problem. Doug PS This recall is for ALL LCI Coachsteps, not just FR

RE: Leveling jacks alarm

I should have said.........Powergear. Oh I just raised and lowered them for five times, I heard that sometimes very small debris to get in the way and kick off a sensor. Didn’t work. On the side of the reservoir about 1/4 from the top you will see 2 wires going to the float. I forget which you do , but you disconnect the 2 wire plug and either leave it hanging or jump the 2 wires. You will know which when the alarm stops. Doug
