RE: ASME propane tank leak

I do not think the tank can be 'taken out'. It is permanently mounted under the side of the van. The rv would probably need to be put up on a lift (it is already 9' high). I cannot see how it is attached from underneath. Post some pictures.

RE: Removing built up sealant?

I've had good luck using these scrapers along with a heat gun. https://www.harborfreight.com/automotive/auto-body-trim/auto-body/4-piece-nonmarring-scraper-set-95832.html Gotta get me some of them!

RE: ASME propane tank leak

I am surprised that there is no one around to do repairs, especially in a major industrial area like yours. Very strange. Are they saying that if you take out the tank and bring it in, they will work on it?

RE: Looking for a campground around Sarasota

No go. Any other suggestions would be appreciated. Like I said, you will have great difficulty finding a site in Florida following the flood of Canadians who swept down recently when the border was opened. Your best bet may be to search out one of the many small mom and pop campgrounds closer to the middle of the state (E and W, N and S) They frequently don't fill up due to less amenities. Good luck

RE: Ever heard of this?

I was "next door", a few years later (from the date on your photo.) Fun times, huh? When I arrived around the 2nd or 3rd of July 1966 there were: 200 AF Redhorse Construction guys building the runway 50 US Army 4 Marines 12 USCG Electric Techs, a W4 XO and LT CO as a construction detachment. I rotated out on June 2nd 1967 and there were: 7,000 USAF 5,000 US Army 28 USCG and the same 4 Marines and are probably still there!!!! They had huts down on the beach in Sattahip, with Thai ladies to clean, cook and provide for their needs. Never made it that far west. I did get to Pleiku over on the western boarder. :D

RE: ASME propane tank leak

You may be able to tighten the shaft nut behind the valve handle to compress the seal tighter. Also, the valve should always be fully opened so it back seats against the seal to prevent leaks. Sure seems like this would be a logical problem to cause these symptoms. I would tighten the nut on the handle shaft and it should solve the problem. Also as Dutch said, always open the handle all the way.

RE: How to remove Captain's Chair pedestal from floor of RV

OPs rig in profile has a basement. Bolts or nuts would be in a compartment not through to exposed underneath the rig. That's a rather bold generalization. I have a 40' DP (same chassis as the OP) (with basement) and my chairs are bolted down through the floor where it is exposed to the elements. Are you saying there is a basement compartment under the chairs in your Pace? Normally, in a Class A, the seats are very close to being right above the front axle.

Sometime later!

RE: Multimeter recommendation?

Buy the best you can afford. Frequently, when you have an electrical problem, others here can suggest tests to be made to find the problem. You may not know how to do the tests but others can guide you through it. Meter readings are essential for a rapid solution. No meter, no solution. Also, in the course of doing the above, you will learn tricks to put in your memory bag. P.S. having an amp meter can be very helpful.

RE: Ever heard of this?

I've never heard of this type of conversion. When I lived in upstate NY a friend of mine ran something on his snow plow truck that injected water into the fuel, I don't know anything about what happened but I remember him showing me. I find this stuff interesting not as the effect that the user intends "whatever that may be" but just the scientific inventing end of it. I thought it was interesting and am passing it along for comments. https://www.truckcampermagazine.com/camper-tech/misadventures-in-grease-camping/ B-52s and other military aircraft have been using water injection into their "diesel" engines for years. Here is a KC-135 with "wet" takeoff https://i.imgur.com/fDc009Pl.jpg Was that at U-Tapao in Thailand? I was 4 miles off the end of the runway and 3 miles to the side. I was part of the construction crew that build and man'd the Loran C Station the USCG built there in the summer of 1966. Sometime later!

RE: How to remove Captain's Chair pedestal from floor of RV

My 2000 American Tradition has the chairs bolted to the floor with nuts underneath. I suspect you, or someone else, will have to crawl under the coach. You may want to contact Spartan Chassis and ask someone there what is necessary. 1(800)543-4277

RE: Contradictions with EV’s

I'm sorry, I don't get it! I was taught many years ago that trees need CO2 to produce oxygen. When did that change? "Carbon dioxide is indeed plant food and more plant food means more plants, more forests" When did CO2 become our enemy? Weird!

RE: RV Park Wi-Fi Issues

Get a Tmobile or Verizon MiFi for about $50/month. We have one of each and have used them everywhere from Quartzite to Orlando with good signals everywhere. RVing is to relax and I couldn't relax with no wifi so got this solution and now I'm relaxed and don't have to worry about signal at a campground (most of which are worthless)

RE: Inverter

Sorry that happened. You will have to tell us more about your rig, and more about what you did with the old inverter. There are dozens of inverters out there with various capabilities. Picking one will be determined by your budget, your requirements, and other factors.
