RE: Water Heater Question

Yes I've had that shower as well in the past. Now I'm always sure to open a hot water tap to relieve pressure before touching the plug.

RE: Wiring Short only under shore power

Does the fuse blow the minute you plug in to shore power? Does it matter if the light switch is on or off? Here's a couple things to think about or check. Get some extra fuses ready. On generator verify that the dinette light works. Turn off the dinette light and plug in shore power. Does the fuse blow? While still plugged in to shore power turn on the dinette light. Does the fuse blow now? Unplug shore power and turn off the dinette light. If there is a bulb in the dinette light remove the bulb. If the light is an LED you'll probably have to take it down and possible cut one of the wires. Plug in to shore power and see if the fuse blows. If you have a multimeter take a voltage reading from both sides of the fuse to ground. Does the voltage jump to 120v when plugged in to shore power (it should not jump)

RE: Voltage Dump Valve Replacement

The black valves are 3" and all gray are 1.5"

RE: Is there a quiet water pump?

I'm not sure if there is a quiet pump. But as above there are a couple of ways to make it quieter. Make sure the pump is mounted on a rubber or soft foam pad. Cut the PEX tubing near the pump and add some hose clamps and flexible line. Use some foam and follow the water lines out of the pump. Wedge a piece of foam between the hard lines and the walls and floor. Add an accumulator tank into the system. An accumulator will allow a flush or two without turning on the pump making for a silent flush. The downside is once the accumulator pressure bleeds off the pump has to run longer to re-pressurize the system.

RE: Tail light issues

Okay found the fuses inside the coach. Checked each bulb socket and all have current. Only saw one fuse for daytime lights. Fuse okay If all sockets have current then you have a bad ground. Can you easily pull the light fixtures off and see what's behind them?

RE: Macerator pump questions

The black tank has a 3 inch dump valve and pipe. The gray tank has a 1 1/2 inch dump valve and pipe. A 1 1/2 inch dump pipe into a 3 inch elbow into the macerator may show air at the top of the elbow if the macerator is faster than the pipe.

RE: Adding scissor jacks for side to side leveling

Give it a try with a cheap bottle jack or two and see if everything works out. I know on my trailer if I get too aggressive with the corner jacks it warps the frame and the bathroom door won't close or latch. The first time I experienced this the striker was a full 1 inch above the hole in the door jamb. And my trailer is an older Jayco with a pretty stout one piece I-beam frame.

RE: Leave propane on while driving?

Maybe it's because I live in California and we have required vapor recovery at the nozzles. But I can't remember the last time I smelled gasoline at a gas station. Here's my thoughts on why I'm not concerned about running the refrigerator when refueling the tow vehicle. There are no spills because we have automatic shutoff nozzles on the fuel pumps. If the nozzle falls out of the fill pipe the nozzle immediately shuts off. Both the water heater and the refrigerator are at the same height or higher than the hood on 99% of the vehicles on the road. Cars and trucks have Starters and alternators that spark when in operation. Heck I've noticed in colder areas of the country that people leave their engines running when fueling. If we're not concerned about this then why would we be concerned about a pilot light 3 feet in the air?

RE: NetGear WNR1000 v3 blinking green and yellow

Reading page 3 I would say you're router tried to do a firmware update and it failed and is now corrupted. You can always try saving the router configuration to a PC and then do a factory reset. After the reset, read the saved configuration back into the router again.

Are you saying you successfully found a replacement switch?

RE: Putting new decals over old.

Yes on the heat gun and plastic blades. But be careful to not overheat with the heat gun. Wave it over the decal for a few seconds then take it off and try the scraper. If not loose wave for a few more seconds. the vinyl will go from stuck tight to easy to peel to way too soft to peel very quickly.

RE: Hot Water Re-Circulation Pump

That's a great idea, I might copy it. I realize it's only on for 30 seconds but is the pump fairly noisy? Where did you source the pump and check valve? I tried finding a valve a few years ago and didn't have much luck.

RE: Best Cleanser for Condenser Cleaning for AC?

Never cleaned mine because have only ever ran it maybe 5 times in the last 16 years. But I would just use plain water from the garden hose. All you're cleaning off is dust and dirt. There's no oil or other adhesives on there to require an actual cleaning agent other than water.

RE: Reseal questions on or near roof

Dicor would work for al your questions. In the Thule rack I would use a small pointed object and pick the old sealant out. Then you can reapply Dicor sparingly over the screws again. On the membrane cracks I would probably use Dicor over them. Eternabond would work too. But be careful and let it lay without tension. Don't pull it tight around the corner or it will loosen up over time and leak. For the rest of the screws you can either pull them one at a time and reseal them. I just looked at 3m 4200 and it seems like a good candidate for what you're asking.

RE: Ultimate Solar RV????

Did anybody else notice that the little montage on the home page was mostly of the woman out in nature with an occasional shot of the RV?

RE: Generator switch

Unplug shore power and turn off all engines. Find where the batteries are connected to the transfer switch. Take a voltage reading there and see if you have 6 or 12 volts.

RE: Hand crank help

As above, use a hammer and small punch to push the pin through one way or the other. Grab it with some pliers (I like to use diagonal cutters for good grip) and pry it out. Take the pin to your local home improvement store and get a new split pin (aka roll pin) from the drawers in the nuts and bolts aisle. Take the pin home and check the length against the crank handle. Carefully file or grind the pin to length, leaving it a bit long if possible. Use a hammer to tap the pin into the shaft.

RE: 6 or 12 That is the question

If they dry camp a lot and need the batteries then the 6 volts are the way to go. They are a true deep cycle battery that can withstand deeper draws on their reserves and not get damaged. But the downside as ktmrfs states is the 6 volts have a high resistance. So for normal loads like lights and television and water pump and charging laptops etc they are fine. But if you try to run the microwave through an inverter they will not be able to keep up with the current draw. If they mostly have electrical hookups when camping then they should go with 12 volts as they are cheaper and don't really get drawn down between campsites.
