RE: Water heater question

I like to put a small, 1 or 2 gallon pressure tank with a bladder, in the pipping system. Then I don't need to worry about loosing the air in the water heater, and when using water from our fresh water tank, the pump does not start and stop as often, just runs longer with each start. Dusty

RE: Unusual tank sensor issues.

Check out SeeLevel tank monitor. Very accurate and gives readings in %. Dusty

RE: Solar charge to chassis battery

Make it all automatic with a Trick-L-Start combiner. Everything stays isolated while in use. When the solar or converter is powered up it will send up to 5 amps to the chassis start battery. X-2 Dusty

RE: onan 4k gen

What I did on one of our past mh. I added switch on the electric fuel pump that's on the generator, and when I knew that we were not to use it for a while, I would turn the fuel pump off and let the generator run out of gas, which empty the carburetor. Dusty

RE: Best bang for the buck Golf Cart battery

I've come to like Deca batteries. And I prefer putting 2-12 volt batteries in parallel. If you are out in the middle of now where and one battery goes bad, and you have 2 6 volt batteries in series, now what do you do? But with 2-12 volt batteries just disconnect the bad one and you can keep going. Dusty

RE: Wierd water gauge problem

If your fresh eater has a lot of minerals in it they can coat the tank walls. Most of the malfunctions on any of the tanks is not toilet paper, it is a coating of scum on the tank walls causing an electrical path between the probes. X-2 Check out SeeLevel. It gives a reading in % instead 1/3 s. Not very hard to install. And very dependable. Dusty

RE: Water tank filling mod

Our new '88 Mallard and new 2001 Itasca both had a gravity fill port. Out 2014 does not. I built one using 3/4" PVC pipe and a 1/4-20 stainless threaded rod. Dusty

RE: Are My Tanks Really Empty?

Our first mh was a 1988 Mallard, it had tank probes and the monitor always worked. Our next one was a 2001 Itasca, also with tank probes showing 1/3 levels. To me 1/4 levels would be a lot better. Anyway you could NOT depend the readings. My opinion the Mallard used the full 12 volts a-crossed the probes and the Itasca used a system like an Ome meter, and a film of moister would cause it to give faults readings. A couple years after getting the '01 Itasca I learned about the SeeLevel system, got one and installed it. It gives readings in % which much better than thirds. It has circuit boards that you peal and stick to your tanks. They use the original wires but only one. We bought new 2014 Itasca in 2015, it also had a monitor panel that showed in thirds. I bought another new SeeLevel system and installed it in our new mh. Dusty

RE: ‘93 Beaver Patriot transfer switch

Maybe you don't have a ATS. Sometimes you plug the power cord from the camper into a receptical wired from the generator. Dusty

RE: Slip slidin’ away

On our Itasca, you have to set the parking brake for the slide to work.

RE: Doing wheelies

I've got some braided extenders that I used for several years, they never gave and problems. I took them off when I sold the mh. Dusty

RE: electrical problem, lights above dinette will not shut off.

If the power goes to the light first, then the 2 wires goes to the switch are shorted together, to prove this, disconnect one of them at the light. Dusty

RE: Are My Tanks Really Empty?

You might look into the SeeLevel gauge system for your tanks, not all that hard to install and give read-out in % and I've them found accurate. Dusty

RE: New to me 1979 Dodge Fireball

Here in Michigan, we rank 47th out of the 48 continental states in available sunshine, so solar is not all that practical. Dusty

RE: Why Didn't I Think of This Before?

This was talked about within the last couple of weeks. About 5 years ago, I made a device so I can gravity fill at my garden hose pressure fill port. Haven't used it in the last couple years. Dusty

RE: House batteries

Yb, First off, you are in Ontario, and that is as bad solar-wise as Michigan. The little panel on the roof will probably do a good job of making up for the loss when the coach is stored. Matt This is very true. Michigan ranks 47th out of the 48 continental states in available sun shine. I think New Hampshire is 48th. Dusty
