Dometic toilet vacuum breaker

Pulling my 2015 Keystone Energy 300 FBS out for the first time after a long Alaskan winter and have found my winterization skills to be lacking. I had a leak in my Dometic series 310 toilet and replaced the water valve thinking that would solve the problem. Replacing the water valve fixed one problem but now after flushing, I have water streaming out of the top/back of the toilet at the vacuum breaker. Can I repair thos part? If not, can someone he'll me with the post number?

12 volt or low wattage vacuum cleaner

Hi All - Can anyone recommend a good 12 volt or low wattage vacuum cleaner. We will be doing some dry camping this year, obviously without hookups. Most everything we need we can do with 12 volts, except TV and vacuum cleaner. I plan on buying an inexpensive 300 watt pure sine wave inverter for the TV. Hopefully I could find a decent 12 volt vac, or find one that will work with the inverter. Thanks for any help.

Black Tank vacuum Breaker

A few days ago y'all gave me ideas about why my black tank won't flush. One of the ideas was a vacuum breaker problem. Does the thing in this photo look like a vacuum breaker? http://i66.tinypic.com/24eudxu.jpg How does one test and/or reset it? Thanks much.

vacuum cleaners

Most of us don't have a central vacuum system in our rigs. What make/model vacuum cleaner do you use? We have a dog. Our Grand Design has vinyl flooring in most of it, the bedroom and slide is carpeted. Thanks

12 volt/battery powered car vacuum

I would like to purchase a 12 volt car vacuum that has some suction and will pick up dirt. I do not want one that has to be plugged into 120 volt. If it is battery powered I want to be able to plug it into a 12 volt outlet. I found a Dewalt but by the time you purchase the vacuum, the battery, and the charger you have over 200 dollars invested....I want to be able to vacuum out the dirt/sand when we are camped. I want some that will work and not something that is cute. The Dirt Buster etc. just does not do the job. A google search brings up lots of vacuums but most are only practical for flat open floor....not the nooks and crannies of a truck cab.....

What central vacuum bag fits my Montana?

I have a 2007 Montana that has the original vacuum bag in it. There is no model # on the unit but I looked online and it is the typical model shown and has one hole to plug in the hose. The bag has no number on it but I have narrowed it down to needing a Y10 or Y11. I don't know if that's right or not but still don't know which would fit. Help please. I've been all over the internet trying to figure it out.

1988 gulf stream 460 Ford motor vacuum lines

I am sorry if I am not posting this in the right forum. I have a 1988 gulf stream with the John Deere chassis and a Ford 460 motor. I need the diagram for the vacuum lines. Some are not connected and some are rotten and needs replaced. I am planning on replacing them all. Thank in advance for any help anyone can give me.

1993 Ford E350 vacuum and A/C question

Haven't been on here much lately - too many other things going on...but, we took the RV out last week for the first time in a year and had a great, rather uneventful trip - except for no cabin A/C. Not a huge deal, but I'm in the midst of fixing it right now. The system was EMPTY - so I tried to draw a vacuum, just to see what I had. I really think the problem had to do with the schrader valves, but I'm not sure. I pressurized the system with compressed air (yes, I know nitrogen is better and I know about the moisture issue - I used a filter and I knew I was changing out the drier - at least - when I was done anyway. Didn't find any huge leaks after spraying around and the vacuum got down to 29" or so and when turned off, held steady for more than 10 minutes. Pulled the orifice tube today and it was covered in really fine, almost dust like metallic particles (they were attracted to a magnet)- pretty clogged up. I'm assuming my FX15 compressor has died - I have a new one (FX10) coming tomorrow, as well as a new condenser. My question is should I replace the evaporator as well? And how concerned should I be about the hoses? I see no signs of oil/leaks and I am having an impossible time finding any replacements for this van chassis...the line from the compressor to the condenser has a muffler installed in it and I've read that you can't really flush those. But, if I get the hose out to where I can turn it upside down, do you think I can run some flush through it? I am planning on flushing the evap and all the hoses - installing new compressor, condenser, drier and orifice tube and going back with R12. One other question - in taking the drier off the passenger wall, I had to remove the vacuum reservoir. I noticed that nothing was hooked up to it - no hoses running to or fro..? Been like this since I've had the coach (6 years) - should I be concerned about this? Any other advice/ideas? Thanks, Ryan
