RE: Refrigerator Repair/Replacement

Our first trip with our new residential. Love it. Went from 12 cu ft to 21 and reduced a lot of weight. Haven't run it on the inverter except for a test. After a couple of hours we usually stop for a break as start the generator. In hot weather as it is now the generator is running all the time. Had the ice maker lever off while moving. Ten minutes after dropping the arm ice is filling again. Yes, a large Dometic with ice maker can cost upwards of 4K. This residential was on sale and we got it for about $800. Yes the install was time consuming but I too my time and it is rock solid.

RE: Greetings everyone from central Florida

Welcome to the forum. Another central Floridian here. Right between Tampa and Orlando.

RE: Class A Diesel Idling

It takes a few minutes for me to build air so I often build the air the evening before so I don't bug people in the am. Cummins mfgr reps absolutely say to start and just take it easy to the freeway onramp and to not idle too much. Your computer stores all that information too.

RE: 3.5L V6 of 5.0L V8

If you put the proper options together the V6 is rated to haul the most. There are side by side comparison charts. A Cummins 400 isl is a 6 cylinder. Big cylinders of course. But without a turbo the diesel won't get out of its own way. Todays technology with turbos and computers puts amazing power in smaller packages. Plenty of old school folks not willing to give up the adage of huge big blocks are absolutely necessary,

RE: 7pin wiring problem. Please help!

You are trying to fix too many problems at the same time. You will just get confused. Go back to the left tail light. Turn on the tow vehicle running light. If your test light comes on by touching the socket pin or the wire going into the bulb while using the long wire as suggested as a ground then you have power that far back to that light. Forget the right side for now. Then put the test light on the other wires of the bulb/socket. IF the test light comes on when touching what seems to be both sides of the bulb then your ground is missing for that bulb. Remove the bulb, use your test light to find which wire lights up the test light. Put the bulb back in and then use a needle to pierce the wire that did NOT light up the test light. Connect your temporary ground wire there and the bulb should light up. If there are more than one wire that is ok. Probably one is the turn signal.Just pierce the ones that did NOT light up the test light. Ok, once that simple circuit is diagnosed you can start working on the left turn signal. It is usually just the other wire and should flash your test light when touched. If these simple tests fail you have a problem between the socket and pigtail. I think you can sort it quickly if you break it down to a couple of basic tests. If you use a substitute battery you may chase your tail, lights that is. What you are doing is substituting a

RE: 7pin wiring problem. Please help!

If you TT plug is not molded you can take it apart. If you are careful you can plug it into the towing vehicle. That allows you to actually check the pins on the umbilical. This will eliminate the towing vehicle as a suspect. You absolutely positively must have a proper ground. If you keep messing about without a good one you are going to add more problems by blowing fuses or worse. For a novice, the test light is your friend. Even seasoned techs get busted using a voltmeter. Do not ever rely on the tow hitch to be a good ground. Using a temporary jumper for a ground will let you sort things with confidence. With the new long wire you buy connect it to the tow vehicle and connect your test light to that wire. If you can't get to the trailer plug easily just start at the TT light sockets and things should go smoothly.

RE: 7pin wiring problem. Please help!

Grab a battery jumper cable and find a shiny place on the tow vehicle and then make a shiny place on the TT frame. Connect. Once you have an absolute known good ground you need to start over. IF you can open the TT plug while it is plugged into the tow vehicle you can then use a test light to check each pin. Use a 12 volt test light and make sure it shows as brightly on each connection. A voltmeter will lie to you. Once you are sure the tow vehicle is sending proper signals then go back to any of the tail lights and begin testing there. Once you have this sorted out you can pull the jumper cable off and if things change you can then address that.

RE: Non-commercial Class B license

I dare you to get someone in writing in California to tell you how to measure my 40 foot motorhome. I spent so many hours getting it from "the expert". Was told I had to write someone in Sacramento. After discussing the issue of NOT having a bumper or anything like it they gave up. I had a few say they would just drop a plumb bob from each end. That is not the answer either. I contacted Monaco and they gave me kind of a strange answer too. Something about measuring it before putting the fiberglass caps on each end. Good luck measuring one after an accident.

RE: Turkey in convection oven

Do a search on Dual mode cooking. If your microwave has that of course. At Lazydaze in Tampa their in house chef gives a class that is quite amazing.

RE: Keeping printer ink cartridges good

Mine dry out too quickly as well. Grrr. And now the newer ones cannot be refilled easily.

RE: Half of my lights went out

You dropped the ground. That is either dropped the wire, made a bad connection, etc. See if you have hot on both sides of one of the lights that is NOT working. Be sure the switch is on of course. IF you have hot on both sides of the light your ground is missing. Back track when they went out.

Need a new one. We don't buy batteries or tires, we just rent them. None last forever.

RE: Electrician says Motor Homes want 220v

Install a 50 amp outlet and then you won't worry. Using a store bought dog bone will keep you out of the dog house. And in the future when you buy a bigger RV you will be so happy you did.

RE: Help, macerator question

Can you hear anything click near the back? I think mine has a relay there. The toilet should unmount easily to get to the back for inspection.

RE: 12v power issue

What I found odd is that half the 12v works. So this solenoid will have 2 outputs? No, it is a very simple on/off switch so technically it does not have an input and output. It just shorts the two large connectors together. Your symptoms of resetting the inverter does NOt add up to losing 12 volt lights. But if it works, so be it.

RE: 12v power issue

That was my first inclination. My gut says a solenoid isn't activating. That theory would indicate the system is split though since I do have some 12v working. Very common. Have someone toggle the switch and locate the solenoid that is being controlled. Use a test light on each large connection and when it acts up check them again. I bet one side is out. Many people just bypass the solenoids.

Sorry if you cannot handle one more instrument in the panel. I guess you never turned a radio know. My eyes never leave the road with the phone mounted properly. How would one get reports otherwise? Not calling some hotline. I am a pilot and can walk and chew gum at the same time. Quite talented actually.

RE: Complicated fridge question, stay with me here... :\

ok, if you have 12 volts at the pump then lift the wire off the fridge and measure again.If the voltage goes to 12 then you have a bad connection on that wire.

RE: Complicated fridge question, stay with me here... :\

Fix the obvious. Start at the batteries to find the 12 volts. Might just have bumped the switch by the door that turns off lots of stuff. The 6 volts could be a sneak path. Starting the engine pushes the voltage up to the working threshold of the circuit board but not high enougg to activate the relays it drives.
