RE: Dexter Axles

I bought a new tandem axel trailer, and one of the tires was wearing one side of the tread. I found that U-bolts on that end of the axel had not been tightened to the leaf spring and had slid a little on the spring, and had worn those U-bolts. I put new U-bolts on it, and made sure they were tight. That was 10 to 15 years ago, and I'm still using that trailer.

RE: Leave propane on while driving?

I fixed our mh so I can turn the refrigerator off from the drivers seat, so we can turn it off before pulling up to the gas pump.

RV roof vent cover

We are on our 3rd mh, all were purchased new. The one we have is an 2015, and one of the roof vent covers blew off while driving, one of the other 3 is damaged, the 3rd one does not look very good. We have never had a problem with the vents lids/covers on any of the mh's. Has anyone else had this problem? Are they just built cheeper?

RE: Hot Water Re-Circulation Pump

Just Tee into the hot water line at the farthest point from the water heater, and run it back and Tee into the input line at the water heater. Now water will thermo-siphon and will stay hot in the hot water line. To save some L.P.G. turn water heater off at night.

RE: "Groovy" flat fuses VS non-groovy

Did you try turning the fuse around? But I don't know why a fuse would be directional.

RE: Tire Pressure Monitoring System

I keep it rather simple. I carry a pocket inferred thermometer, and check tire temperature when we stop, for a break.

RE: Engine battery power loss

I had the battery ground cable disconnected and opened the passenger door, and something started chattering, probably a relay. So I put the ground cable back on the battery, and now everything is back to normal. Is it going to stay fixed? I sure hope so. I'm guessing that it was a stuck relay. Thanks, Dusty

RE: Help with noise on trailer axle

I've seen/heard the u-bolts that hold/clamp the springs to the axel loose jingle.

Engine battery power loss

Engine battery power loss when not in use. And not plugged in, to 120v. We have an Itasca on a 2014 E-450 that for the last while the engine battery will run down over night. When the ground cable from the battery is unhooked there is 0.2 volt from unhooked cable to it's battery post. This is without the RV being plugged in. Anyone else had this problem? Where do I start to look to fix it? Going to put a battery switch on it for now. Dusty

RE: Class C driver/passenger seats

I took some angle irons and raised the cab seats for when we set for the winter, in the land of warm weather and sunshine. Dusty

RE: uneven tire wear

I bought a new tandem axel trailer and after pulling it many miles discovered that the u-bolts on one end of one axel were very loose, which caused bad tire wear.

RE: Parasitic current draw on tow vehicle

It's been my understanding that newer vehicles draw a little power to maintain computers that are used within them. Dusty

RE: Generator Repair

Turn the mixture screw all the way in then back it out 1 - 1/2 turns. Then dump out the old gas and put fresh gas in it; including draining the carb. Little shot of ether may help get it running. Kind of hard to dump propane/LP fuel.

RE: ALDE heating and water heating system. Comments welcome.

If you add air conditioning to that, be sure to include dehumidifying also. Dusty

RE: Onan 4000 generator cranks but won't start

When you checked the spark plug, did you also check for compression? It takes 3 things to make a gasoline engine engine work, compression-fuel-spark.

RE: Dometic AC Fan Not Working

Is there power going to the fan motor when it is supposed to be running? Perhaps you have a bad relay.

RE: 2008 Holiday Rambler Augusta fresh water pump locatio

I like to take a tank that is used in a home hot water heating system, and install it in the fresh water system in out mh. It smoothes out water system vary nicely. Those tanks have a bladder in them, so they can be installed laying on there side, which makes it easy to anckor down. Dusty

RE: Should Be Simple But..

There's a check valve between where the park water hooks, and where it hooks to the the RV water system, the leak between those two points.

RE: Max Air Vent Cover Maintenance

I put a MaxxAir 1200T on our MH. That was the one that had about an 145* arc, which would not allow rain in. We traded that MH for a new one, and I went to get a new MaxxAir 1200T to put on the new MH and found that they were no longer made. Wish I could find a good used one.
