RE: Norcold fridge not cooling

Thanks Doug, The coach has no slides and I had not checked the roof vent. Just went out and checked and the vent seems clear. The fridge is 16 years old and has worked well until now. Nothing has changed with the ventilation as far as I can tell. The fridge will not run for 24 hours before it throws the NO CO error. This happens both on LP and 120 volt. There is no sign of cooling at all. There is quite a loud gurgling sound now that I haven't noticed before. Gurgling noise is a sign of a bad cooling unit.

RE: I need help removing my broken water heater drain plug

Go to the hardware store and buy a "sprinkler riser removal tool." I have removed several with one of these, works perfect. https://www.homedepot.com/p/1-2-in-and-3-4-in-Plastic-Nipple-Extractor-26076/100203404Well, that didn't work. It sure gripped but I couldn't turn it. I'm going to get my stronger neighbor to give it a go and then try something else. I wonder if it's because it's nylon and the sprinkler heads are maybe pvc? It has never failed me on any I've removed.

RE: Propane Not Flowing

It might have a propane detector near the floor with an on-off switch. Turn the switch on and it allows propane flow into the coach.

RE: PUZZLER: Slides & jacks are dead

Hopefully we will get an update on what the solution to the problem was.

RE: Truck Battery discharging overnight

From The Internet: A malfunctioning diode in the alternator can create a parasitic drain on a car's battery. Diodes should allow current to pass in only one direction, but a bad diode will keep the charging circuit open even when the engine in not running, allowing the battery to go dead. This often happens overnight.

RE: PUZZLER: Slides & jacks are dead

A "tech" could diagnose the problem and fix it. A "parts replacer" thinks it's the hydraulic pump. Your relay/solenoid that clunks is probably on it's way out and isn't sending enough voltage/current to the hydraulic pump motor. The motor or pump could be going bad also. Or a bad ground as suggested above.

RE: Identify Slide Mechanism

It looks similar to a system Newmar made for their motorhomes.

RE: Norcold N300.3 inconsistent propane functionality...

Yes, probably normal. Some models are better shielded from the wind than others.

RE: Norcold N300.3 inconsistent propane functionality...

It should have came with instructions.

RE: oh joy...........

I just tried this and I get: "This is a known dangerous webpage. It is highly recommended that you do NOT visit this page." Barney posted this free RV.net photo hosting site years ago... http://photoposting.is-great.net/?i=2

RE: Good news for picture posting!

I just tried this and I get: "This is a known dangerous webpage. It is highly recommended that you do NOT visit this page." Our moderator for the Technology Corner forum, 1492, has done all of us a great big favor. He developed an app that can be used to post pictures here on the forum which greatly simplifies the task. All you need do to post pictures now is click on the picture posting app located at this link (I suggest you bookmark it for the time being), drag your picture into the box or click the "Select" button to find it on your computer, and then copy/paste the resulting URL into your post. The picture will be automatically re-sized to the forum limits of 640x480 if it is larger than that and will show up in your post. Once again, the steps to post a picture into your post are: 1. Drag your picture from your computer into the box (or click on the "select" button to find it on your computer or other source). 2. Copy the resulting URL and then paste it directly into your post. Do not make any additions or subtractions to the URL. There is no need to worry about re-sizing the picture anymore and/or getting the wrong result. Just copy/paste the URL from the app into your post without doing anything to it. There is also no need for a 3rd party hosting site like Photobucket. The app takes care of it all for you! :) Hope you enjoy this and we owe 1492 a beer or two if/when any of us meet him in our travels! Normally we don't allow test posts in the general forums but I am going to start a new thread on this forum called "Picture Posting Test Thread" where you can try this out if you wish. Barney

RE: Norcold N300.3 inconsistent propane functionality...

Call Norcold and ask them for a N300 Interrupter-Selector Switch Wire Kit. Kit part number 628119. From the instruction sheet: "The purpose of this kit is to repair NORCOLD N300 model refrigerators that do not stay lit in LP Mode." Edit: It shows up on Amazon also. Read the reviews for some success stories. https://www.amazon.com/Norcold-Inc-Refrigerators-628119-Installation/dp/B0031XK5QC

RE: Furnace runs but blows cold

Remove 4 screws that hold the plastic fan housing to the furnace. The sail switch is attached to the inside of the plastic fan housing with 2 screws. The limit switch is behind the blower fan/motor.
