RE: Tire pressure monitor systems

Had a Tire Minder for 11 years. Detected air leak twice. Did not help with a catastrophic tire tread separation. Tire exploded before alert could occur. Aside from that it monitors pressure and temps very well. Greg

RE: Bed cover for F350 with fifth wheel hitch

We have a Truxedo soft rollup on our F350 Crew Cab SRW diesel. No extra tank. Cover is 13 years old and still works great. Greg

RE: Solar panel mounting; screws or toggle bolts?

Frankly, the modern thing to do is use 3M VHB 4950 double sided tape and stop putting holes in your roof. If the VHB tape is going over a rubber roof the mechanical connection is only as strong as the adhesive bond between rubber and wood. The VHB will likely Never fail. However, the wind uplift could cause the rubber roof adhesive to fail. We have all seen that trailer coming down the opposite side of the highway with the giant air bubble beneath. I would not risk having an 8 square foot kite peeling my roof off. Could be a problem for traffic behind too. Greg

RE: Are Butyl Tapes Equal?

3) Pure butyl tape. The most expensive but the best choice. It sticks very well to all surfaces, never hardens or crumbles and remains pliable for years. And its a bear to remove. That's a plus, not a negative. Correct. Sika Corp makes the butyl tape that major corporations specify for their applications. Insider knowledge so I cannot name them but Appliance and Automotive companies use only Sika. Another domestic manufacturer is located in Minnesota and theirs would work too. Butyl tape is not supported by any membrane. It's an industrial strength putty that will last for years as long as it is sandwiched between 2 surfaces. Greg

RE: suburban water heater switch wires

thanks everyone. I think I'll buy a replacement element as a spare and trust this was a bad crimp that took a few months to fail. It seems to be the consensus. Will find out on last fall trip of the year. Campground has hot showers if the need arises. Greg

RE: suburban water heater switch wires

Nope. 16 amp 120V. It is the replacement switch part number from the Suburban website. That is why I suspected an overheat situation as the engineer I read on another site said the wire should as you suggest be able to handle 20 amp. The 16 ga. is not rated that high. I just hope this didn't fry the heating element if the overload failed to trip. I was wondering if I can test the continuity on the element without removing it. Greg

RE: suburban water heater switch wires

120V. It had the blue connectors with 16 ga. wire. The reason I suspect an overheat is that the wire was still connected , at least partially. The blue connector was entirely black and the back portion where the wire enters was melted away.

suburban water heater switch wires

We have a 2012 5th wheel with the 8 gal suburban gas/electric water heater. The switch went out bout 18 months ago and I had it replaced. Recently our water worked fine for a day and the next am lukewarm water. I tried the switch and it clearly felt stiff so I pulled it from the face. One of the 2 leads that go to the overload was cooked. The wire was still attached albeit frayed. I read another forum that an engineer felt the gauge of the wire for that unit was too small and it could overheat. I removed the overload cover and replaced the bad lead with the yellow flag connectors rated for 20 amp vs the blue ones rated for 15 amp using 12 ga, wire. I did not replace the 2nd lead as I doubt the switch would fit back into the space with 2 yellow connectors on it. I will test the overload with my ohmmeter and make sure it is not fried although it appeared good. Does anyone know if I can test the heating element as well without removing it? Threading wire and putting connectors on in that tight space was a test of patience. I have replaced the Heat element once before an I really do not want to again unless I have to. Greg P.S. We don't use it on gas as it is very loud and the recovery time is not as fast on this one as electric.
