RE: Pin box

That is what it is designed for........changing the pivot point for everyday towing. Unlike a slider that moves hitch/pin back in bed of truck for manuvering only

RE: What a bunch of junk.

RECALLS.....the 'standard' in manufactoring processes. Look at the Auto Industry. Years and Millions of vehicles across the spectrum entry level to high end Heck even have recalls on waffle irons, dog food, Lettuce etc RVs nothing new. No REAL penalty in Recalls to the MFG. If so they would no longer be in business (YEAH!) or would just get bailed out (bankruptcy, gov. etc) Consumer left holding the bag....which is probably under a recall too!

RE: What is the purpose of low point drains?

If all the plumbing was sloped towards the low point with absolutely no sags, then maybe it would work. But RV's are built any which way and you can't count on draining properly. That is what I was thinking, so I was wondering what is the point of having them there in the first place. Because W/O the Low Point Drains HOW would you get the water out of the Hot/Cold water lines??? Open the Low point Drains.....then with an adapter connected to City water inlet you can BLOW air thru the Lines and remove majority of water in the system Course there is the issue of the water pump. RV Anti-freeze pumped thru the Cold & Hot Systems (out faucets/showers/toilet AND Low Point drains you get rid of the water and protect with anti-freeze W/O Low Point Drains that would be hard to accomplish. doesn't have to use them

RE: Atwood 8531-IV DCLP Furnace Not Working

It seems like this narrows it down to the relay or the wire between the furnace and the relay. No idea how to trouble shoot the relay. No Duo-Therm relay board with the part number 3107541.009 seems to be available. This is a problem when you have no idea what you are doing. That P/N is for a Analog DOMETIC control kit. That is the Module in the housing and the wall tstat with the AC mount bolts. 3106996.022 should be the analog module only. FYI, NOBODY says Duo Therm. That term has been obsolete for over 35 years. DOMETIC is the Brand name that is used. Doug You information would be so much better received if you were NOT so condensending in your relies. Lighten up....good grief

RE: what kind of batteries do i have?

Two 6V batteries (Series) VS Two 12V batteries (Parallel) height=500 width=500 6V wired in series.... POS on one connected to NEG of other battery You would connect your Power Dolly cable to POS of one and NEG of other 12V wired in parallel..... POS connected together and NEG connected together You would connect your Power Dolly cable to a POS and NEG on just one of the batteries (Same Battery)

RE: Atwood 8531-IV DCLP Furnace Not Working

It is NOT the 'sail switch', NOT the 'limit switch', NOT the on/off-circuit breaker otherwise jumpering the 2 blue wires would have NO affect. Jumpering the 2 blue wires allows DC circuit be to completed......from thermostat You stated..... " I do NOT have continuity between the 2 blue wire when they are disconnected and tstat is calling for heat." That means the thermostat is the issue............replace it. See pg 29...thermostat troubleshooting Blower does NOT run Service Manual

RE: Loud Water Pump

Sounds like the 'Factory floor monkey' way over tightened the pump mounting screws The rubber pads under the mounts should NOT be flattened/.over-compressed Mounting screws should be SNUG ---just enough to hold water pump in place Loosen those mounting screws then just snug them and give the pump a test run With oump running lightly tighten each screw slightly if still vibrating Also check the routing of the discharge hose which should be flex tubing vs rigid PEX pipe

RE: Evolving Canines, de-evoloving people?

San Francisco and Seattle have no one to blame but themselves....they allow it, enable it, condone it and provide city services to clean up behind it

RE: Need pro

Are you living comfortably right now or pay check to pay check? Living FT in an RV is not much different Do you have income that will continue or do you have to supplement income with something else ? Debt? Do you have an RV to FT in or will this need to be purchased? or financed? previous RV exerience? Besides Campground Site fees, Fuel you will have all of the same kind of expenses------Med Ins, Vehicle Ins, Registrations, Maintenance/Upkeep, Food, Entertainment. Takes sustained income or ability to generate income.

RE: Loss of 12v power when shore power is disconnected

Lets start with basics Brand/Model Of INVERTER Brand/Model Of CONVERTER How many 6V batteries...2 wired in series OR 4 total with 2 wired in series then the 2 groups wired in parallel? Converter....Reverse Polarity Fuses Check if charging and no battery supply' Large 30A or 40A fuses ON converter Battery in-line fuse....follow Battery POS Cable S/B an in-line fuse on POS Cable CLOSE to battery (OR DC Circuit Breaker---small box with 2 studs...small reset button on side) IF BLown---no charging/no battery supply Jacks/Slides etc are typically wired DIRECTLY to battery POS posts due to high amop draw...have their own in-line fuse protection So not surprised they work when not connected to AC Power

RE: Propane Tank Gauge,recomendations please

Only one is going to go empty at a time. When Indicator goes from GREEN to RED.....swap indicator lever to other cylinder Then remove the empty one and go get it refilled. TWO 30# cylinders (14 gallons) will last a long time FTng we went 6 weeks on ONE 30# Pressure inside cyliders doesn't change a lot until almost empty Overthinking the issue.

RE: Water Heater Anode?

Atwood uses an ALUMINUM tank that has a zinc cladding. NO Anode Rod Atwood does NOT recommend one, Atwood does NOT have a part number for one, Atwood does NOT use one....period. Aftermarket can provide one even though it is NOT an Atwood can sell folks just about anything whether it useful, an improvement OR even could be damaging Just slap 'FOR RV' on it and SOLD. Atwood uses a NYLON plug for several resaons NYLON will NOT damage the Aluminum Threads in drain hole NYLON is Pressure/Temperature Rated for use in their Water Heater NYLON can act as a 'freeze plug' should water be left in WH Tank in winter temps. Buy the OEM NYLON drain plug...come TWO to a pack One to use and one as a spare for when you bugger up the threads on first one.
