RE: Fresh water problem

Smells both hot and cold. I always sanitize the HWH. It’s an Atwood. So no anode. Oh, isn’t the lining aluminum? Is it reacting with the softened water? Tank is glass lined so I doubt that's an issue. If it were me I would try filling the tank from another water source just to rule out your current water source as the problem. Your house may have water softener but it may bypass the outlet your filling the RV from. Also - if you have a built in water filter that maybe the problem. NO ...Atwood WH Tanks are NOT glass-lined That would be the Suburban which uses a STEEL tank and glass0-lining to protect steel tank plus anode rod Atwood uses an ALUMINUM tank that has a zinc cladding so no anode rod is used. Softener is not your issue Both cold and hot smell........that is source water supply How old is your Hose? Did you sanitize it?

RE: We are Drowning in our...

In all fairness, speaking as one of those folks who participates in the "Adopt-a-Highway" program where we pick up litter along a 2-1/2 miles stretch of highway: a lot of the roadside trash is stuff that blows out of trash trucks. Finding a Wendy's wrapper, when Wendy's is 15 miles east, for example. I tend to assume the lightweight stuff is blowouts from the trucks; the minibottles of liquor, on the other hand, are definitely from the local slobs.... 15 miles on HWY.....55 mph 13.5 minutes is long enough to choke down a Wendy's burger So not necessarily a 'trash truck' just trashy people

RE: 2-way refrigerator operation without a battery

As mentioned...... 1985 vintage converter will need a battery to act as load so 12VDC system can be supplied. Yes...your AC/Gas Fridge will need DC Voltage to function...circuit board, display, controls for electric and gas That is provided your converter is functioning AC IN==DC OUT (converter should have 13.2VDC Output minimum Check DC Voltage on DC Dist Board (where all the fuses are)

RE: black tank flush port

If you haven't used it you should fist locate the Anti-Siphon Backflow Preventer device It is installed at least 2' above black tank...typically inside bathroom sink cabinet It acts like a check valve when water supply is turned off...allows air to enter tank side line so water drains back into tank When water supply is ON the disc is pushed up blocking the air inlets If it doesn't seal off...water POURS out and can flood bathroom etc Water supply goes in bottom connection and flows to tank nozzle out the side connection Someone should watch it when first using to make sure it doesn't leak height=400 width=400 Cheap plastic ones are typical...better brass ones are available height=400 width=300 height=500 width=300

RE: Fresh water problem

Is water heater a Suburban with an anode rod? OEM anode rod is magnesium and can react with microbes in source water ---sulfur smell Aluminum anode rod as available BUT you have a softener and the aluminum doesn't react well to softened water So sanitize and flush that water heater whether Suburban or Atwood

RE: New? Lithium Battery Advertisement

One thing about graphene, such as for a bulletproof vest. It may prevent entry of a bullet, but it does nothing to dissipate energy. A .44 mag round impact anywhere near the heart will induce cardiac infarction unless scientifically designed padding spreads the energy over a wide area. Very useful is the study of the US Navy and torpedo protection...the best way to prevent torpedo damage was to clad the hull with water filled blisters with relief valves. A solid hit on a battleship's armored belt prevented penetration but the shock transmitted caused propeller shaft misalignment, broken electrical components, and dozens of hatch closure failures. Every game changer needs to be taken with a grain of salt. What does that have to do with batteries, energy storage --- DC electrical systems Game changer...that was what they said about Henry Ford

RE: Suburban 6 gallon water heater issue

Suburban SW6D (SW6DE, SW6DEL etc etc etc)all use the same circuit board #520814 Dinosaur Electronics replacement would be the UIB S circuit board and you would need the protective cover for that Dino Board Dino UIB S information

RE: Fridge warming up overnight

I would be inclined to think the outside coils and stack need cleaning. This is described more or less in your owner's manual. I've never done it. Sun heat on the outside increases air flow up through the coils is my guess I'd remove upper and lower covers, blow air DOWN (Carefully and straight) to clean the coils Make sure the coils do not end and close off. Stack cleaning is described in the manual I hope. OP posted fridge works great during daytime BY+UT warms up at night *night ---sun goes day ambient air temps drop Re-read OPs 1st post

RE: Fridge warming up overnight

That model does not have 'defrost' mode That model is equipped with an automatic Low Ambient Control (LAC) function *turns food compartment light ON when ambient air temps drop below 50*F ---- no on/off switch (light causes a heat load so thermostat calls for longer heat cycles/colder temps That model only has 3 temp setting.....narrow range control You have proven cooling unit functions properly (Direct wiring of element) SO...... Unplug the thermistor leads from lower circuit board (P2 connector at J3 --- S/B white leads) Run fridge overnight w/o thermistor sensing and fridge temps should go down and stay down If they do replace the thermistor Snip-The-Tip Rheostat thermistor replacement

RE: Question on Jayco cargo carrying capacity

Website 'UVW' is avg dry weight of that model...NOT actual weight Add options and vehicle weight increases.......GVWR stays the same So more options Less CCC The Data Sticker ON the actual rig is what pertains to that rig as it left factory Dealer added options reduce CCC ---rig weight increases GVWR minus actual rig weight as equipped is available CCC

RE: Is anyone doing anything fun lately?

We are blessed with living on a large lake and having many of our kids/grandkids nearby - we haven't been lacking in the "Fun" department :-) We also attended the "World Skim Bike Championship" held near our home - this video is from last year, but it's pretty hilarious! Skim Bikes Guess many of those entrants don't water ski Tip of skis UP and lean back LOL
