RE: Parking camper on sloped driveway

i just need to load it back up I "assume" you have the 4 corner jacks? If so,go to a camper place and borrow/rent a pair of the universal ones that are on tripods, and you use them in the middle of each side. Between all 6 you would be fine. Otherwise, have 4 other people there, to hold it steady in case it starts to slide. Back in slow and carefully.

RE: Puzzled by Refrigerator Problem

It is possible you stirred up some oil in the LP system, and when that happens it takes a while to get it out,the jet is tiny. But, it is an Americana series, and they had lots of problems with the control module and eyebrow boards.

RE: RecPro RP-AC3400

Search the net, they have a growing base of happy owners, mostly because of lower sound levels. They are made by Houghton,an Aussie company(was) now owned by China.

RE: Propane Quick Connect Question

If it is past the regulator, then it is regulated, low pressure. As is generally how they are installed. Be aware not all LP devices will work, especially if they come with their own regulator, even if you take out that regulator. Many different products, many different pressures. There are a whole line of grills/cookers/burners set up to work off the low side of an RV, and most already have the quick connect installed. No,you do not want to hook up a LP tank to this,you would probably damage your regulator. You need to install an extend-a-stay kit.

Here is a standard basic coach battery wiring diagram.

RE: Power "vampire" on coach batteries

The best way to check for parasitic drain is use a quality meter and check for amps, at the battery. Plenty of youtube vids to show you how. Also,if your batts were quite low on electrolyte,then topped off, but not fully charged before parking, this can happen.

RE: Coach battery bank not working

Generally most coaches will not use chassis battery, but gets power from chassis when vehicle is running. Just because a relay clicks does not mean it is good, the internals could be poor/bad. Here is a basic 3 relay system,the "isolation" relay would be your emergency start relay. I suspect a bad house battery relay,or it is not being turned on, or a bad positive connection somewhere from the house battery(s) to the relay.

RE: Wheel Bearings - re-grease?

2k since the brgs were repacked? Heck no, load up and go, especially having sat inside, mostly out of the weather. Prob a bit of rust on the brake drums, but I would not consider pulling them apart until having used them for a bit. Pull it out, go forward and back, applying the brakes, a dozen times, then freewheel and see if any of the brakes drag(doubtful). If not,hit the road.

RE: Alignment...I think!

From what I can tell from that pic, something rubbed against that tire, or a defective tire. Once the pic was posted I thought the same thing. Did they install taller tires and is there anything above that tire it could be rubbing on? Or caught something in the wheel well.Would not take long at highway speeds.

RE: Never saw this before!

In Montana we have the "road rangers",lol, the portable scales troopers. They can and will pull over anything, from MH's towing full size trucks to big cargo trailers, to a 1/2 ton pickup with a huge load.Just because you can put a hitch on it does not mean the chassis is certified to do it. They also check your diesel for dye, and can do an inspection,and refuse to allow you to continue. If a OTR TT driver is pulled over,you can bet he will be having a bad day.

RE: Question about gray water...?

Thanks. I may be in the market for a smaller camper than one I previously owed... those had gray tanks, hence my interest is asking. On my previous TCs, there were two separate tanks- one back and the other gray. Many times I would drain some of the gray to douse my fire before retiring. If I do get a different TC, some of the water I retain would be for the same purpose. My TC has no grey,and the black is too small. I have 2 camco plastic tubs,that fit in my kitchen double sink. When full,take them out and dump them. BUT,I have not stayed in a "tight" campground in over probably 12 years, where you can spit and hit your neighbor.

RE: Question about gray water...?

Yes,and tent campers have noway to dispose of their grey.That is why regulations have changed a bit,over the years, not every camp ground has a place to dump, and is not wanted to be dumped in the toilets. However, should never be dumped near any water,and could get you a big fine.

RE: Nor Cold 2 way??

As NRALIFR has said. The 12v in 3-ways was designed to be used only when driving, and to "maintain" temps. And, over the years, many were poorly installed, and killed many batteries.They should be hooked up so the element only works when the vehicle is running, and now, they use modules that shut it off if voltage gets too low, usually about 13 volts. I added 12v to mine, RM2501, because I like to experiment,and I used one of the relay modules that they use in the UK and Australia, set the voltage to turn off the element at 12v. It can keep the fridge at 35f, but I have only used it 2 times, I expect it will not when it is 90-100f out. I have a small inverter, in case I have to take a long driving trip,and will use it on 120, especially in hotter weather,while driving.

RE: Cold weather, generators, and campgrounds

"People seem to find that breaking, bending, or changing the rules to make themselves happy at the expense of others is pretty much the order of the day. This isn't just an rv problem by any means." Quote of the day!!!!!!!!!!!!

RE: Atwood furnace needs new blower motor

Ah,the mysterious "8536". The one even RV tech's say did not exist. As the "85" is the series designation, and the "36" is the btu's, I wonder if some of the 8535 stickers were misprinted. If so,the motor you would need would be a 37698. But, 2 things, there almost always is a sticker on the old motors, or you could call these guys, and have the serial number handy, if you can find it-- Also,Dyers has info on lots of older stuff.

RE: 8531 /Burner Issue UPDATE--Photos ( Fixed!)

Good job,and good luck. Usually those terminals are crimped and spot welded,I do not think solder would be something to try.

RE: 8531 /Burner Issue UPDATE--Photos ( Fixed!)

If you hear the click,that is the spark going somewhere. Possibly damaged the big wire, or cracked the porcelain. When you pull it out to test it, the burner housing must be touching another metal part of the furnace,or a jumper wire used, to have a ground.If mot, the spark can jump down at the control board. The snap switch is the high limit safety switch, they are model different. PS The guy in the video is wrong(rare for him,he is good), it is not 12 volts on the big wire, it is several thousand. The igniter system is basically a coil and spark plug.
