RE: 1968 Travel Queen Resto Mod - 9. Electrical (AC/DC)

Could rotate the arm on fixture base 180°, remount base 180°. Would raise the 'globe' & bulb 3" or so in relation to box, fill up the space better. Might need a small shield behind bulb. Id nix the receptacle but it could be moved to bottom. A little to 'Queeny' for me, not sure. Maybe one of those flickering candalabra bulbs?

RE: Lance camper faucet

The Phoenix R4477 faucet linked is a direct replacement for your faucet. Standard 4" center. The issue with fit is selection of 4" faucets WITH diverter, is limited. But replacement is pretty easy install. Nice for an inexpensive faucet with shower diverter. I replaced ours last year with one- though I used the R4077, replacing the faucet with diverter for sink and installed separate R0477 for shower. Somewhere theres a thread of install but dont find it. The advantage, depending on how your shower head is held, would be a bit farther from sink? Most of the faucets with diverter have standard shallow height. Suppose though you might get the benefit of both, using either faucet or head in place.

RE: Truck camper electric jack pre wiring

Fuse should be located pretty close to battery, ours are small metal breakers attached to floor just behind battery box. However as its a pre-wire wires may not have been run that far and terminate there. Might be coiled anywhere if fuse or resettable breaker not also installed. Possibly (with a tether in case you drop) stick a camera back in look around. Though I would assume easy to gain access, I wouldnt assume actually connected-but test. Forward water tank box? Worst case I can think is plugs installed but wire not run. Might pull one-to verify wire extended, ours used crimp-on terminals, plug leads fairly short.

RE: Solar Wiring

As too fuses, I dont see the protection for the controller? in from panel or on load side. Electrically as shown may, and admittedly I'm not the crispest cookie in the jar, but I would have run solar directly to batt before any possible loads? Still studying-for some reason the path is not clear. fridge/inverter go thru 2 breakers...

RE: fridge issues STILL

Id bend back the 2 sheet metal fingers, slid the fuse away from the burner, reclamp. Hard to say, maybe half an inch. Id leave the fuse end toward flame. If its actually flame or its heat blowing fuse and you have just the wire kinda defeats fuse. Id also take the access panel shields with you, just in case road air blows out flame. IF you do still blow the fuse, I assume your jumper wire that bypasses lower thermal fuse goes from the snap disk on flue back to refer, retaining its value. Hopefully in all this problem resolved.

RE: fridge issues STILL

Here are some pictures. DH took the pics and I'll try to upload them for you. http://i.imgur.com/EUQMOtq.jpg Though a bit different configuration, location of lower thermal fused link looks, well one thing at a time. Mine, retro kit the holes were prelocated for bracket- so I assume your was also, just looks close. Looking at pictures I have to agree with Old Bisquit, my primary observation is bend that shield back where it belongs, its acting as a scoop catching the road air thats coming in. Oh that flue baffle Dometic sent- score! They do burn up eventually and effect performance-- keep that. Kinda curious about the upper baffle that you mentioned. Edit-just saw Chris reply, might explain why location looked odd. As it works when stationary, either fuse to close, or air is blowing flame/heat into it. ON the access panel though I would disagree about removing for on road gas use, though you do have the inner shield.

RE: fridge issues STILL

This was the recall add-on? Simular to this? (Outer baffle removed) http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e178/AnEv942/ourelkhorn/ele10.jpg height=640 width=480 The thermo fuse link at the bottom of burner?

RE: fridge issues STILL

No you do not have the wrong refrigerator, unless you wanted option to run on 12v. Why the service guy suggested running on 12v with your 2 way is beyond me. Even IF you had a 3way doesnt address the problem of blowing fuses on LP. The disscussion, 12v verse gas on the road, will not help determine issue. Would you happen to have a picture of the thermocouple fuse thats blowing? I also am unaware of a fuse that would blow...only trying to see the real issue. There are the safety thermal fuse and thermal button on the flue, designed to shut off in high temps but not really part of the thermalcouple. I suppose going down the road possibly heat is being concentrated in one area, tripping thermal fuse-that would be easy to address- but outside of the thermocouple realm.

RE: Eagle Cap 950 Tail, Stop and Backup light Assembly

Thats very cool! Good info. Kaper II, never heard the name before-looked around price not bad. And now seeing, logo is on the lense, KII. The bezel 8x11 a bit larger on the dual fixture so 'could' be used as option to bargman.

RE: Eagle Cap 950 Tail, Stop and Backup light Assembly

http://i.imgur.com/zgkr9Eq.jpg height=375 width=500 Nice-got this off the amlrv.com site just a better picture. The center reflector hadn't noted. I would have changed our bargman BU to the full panel LED except for having to add reflectors. Wonder how close in size the bezel is to the bargmans. Then again 4 years...

RE: Eagle Cap 950 Tail, Stop and Backup light Assembly

All the 950s Ive seen pics of sure look like Bargmans? http://www.bargman.com/products/taillights/taillight-led/33hRfdXCPOCzJxEI%7CE!QucCHUKzFF6HB

RE: Range hood light

I changed our wedge style bulb to bayonet BA15 to use same 1141/1156 LEDs as other lights. Used socket from auto parts http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e178/AnEv942/sledprep.jpg width=480 http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e178/AnEv942/sledprep2.jpg width=480 Its been in vent about 5 1/2 years with no issues.

RE: Installed LED light bulbs in the TC.

Ours were all the same, 1141s (BA15 base) except porch light and stove vent, they were wedge style. Few years ago and the wedge werent available yet so replaced the sockets to use 1141s. Campers are all different, seems newer ones use more wedge style...

RE: Vinyl covering coming out of metal trim...

I would (and did) cut at jacks, seal the top end of cut at jacks, leave upper side of cut open. I also used a paper hole punch and punched couple of holes bottom most side under the bed. Our trim inserts wrapped from the top of jack, up wall, under nose around the front and up to roof, both sides. They are not water proof. Best case, any water that gets behind and it does, sweats and rusts the screws, worst - water travels down and eventually reaches and seeps behind jacks. Or like our rear corners, literally fill with water, seeps in screw holes. I could pull the inserts loose at the back corners and water would run out. Yours looks like it was stretched a bit when installed. Ours was pulling but not that bad. I doubt there is enough excess to relieve. Even if there was probably deformed from being squished under jack that unusable. After cutting I just worked insert up to fill corner, left about a 1" gap above jack. Could cut somewhere under the flat and at top of jack, replace that section if you didn't want to see gap. Seal top end but leave bottoms open. http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e178/AnEv942/awextl.jpg height=640 width=480 Right side 1" gap. They were cut prior to adding swing out brackets at top of hinge barrle. http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e178/AnEv942/SlideFix/sldfx11.jpg width=640 Almost see the left side, gap is 1/2".

RE: Opinions on 100W Solar System

Click..Now how come Ive never had that explained in less the 2 pages before, that made sense & I could understand :)...thanks. Not happening, but playing with the calculator and vaguely remembered numbers of our system, the increase in amps using the simple step down of 14.6 of my optimum operating voltage could yield 2+ amps-wow. Never looked at it like that. Hmm, have a nice MorningStar pwm so unless it dumps...Does also explain the higher voltage wants. From the get-go & long term output, though still more expense- sorta justifies the extra cost. Wonder at what point-or in average available solar input as far as voltage output, that mppt/pwm becomes mute. Measuring ours on a dark/cloudy day lucky to see 14+v from panel, would mppt become liability if expected voltage is low? Interesting...

RE: Opinions on 100W Solar System

Just for a different point of view, several people on here have used this stuff, www.amazon.com/Renogy-Watts-Volts-Monocrystalline-Starter/. I have 2 of these panels, but I use a Bogart Engineering solar controller which works hand in hand with my TM-230-RV meter. Well Ill 3rd the Renogy options for the OP-mostly due to width of 100 watt panel, pricing. Though the conversation brings up a lot of good advice- if your width is a concern-heed it. Shadows will impact use more than type of controller etc. Renogy offers all kinds of kits & what's included. Sounds like you wouldnt use the mounts and unknown if cabling sufficient. They do offer basic kit without cabling/mounts. The also offer same kits with 2 panles. But the starter kits for $188 (or $200 includes wire controller to battery) rather amazing even if you tossed unused items. Less than just the panel you were originally looking at-can always upgrade components but you could be installing while pondering. Just an opinion.. Ive always heard (and believe) how the Mppt are more desirable, just never understood how they 'make' more amps than panle rated at. I couldnt justify cost to find out- regularly see the 7.4+ amps 140w panel is rated at but at 17.9v. But plus 2 amps or better just switching controllers?

RE: Where to buy exterior trim?

The flat seam cover seems to be the hardest to locate Bing 'RV aluminum trim' came up with lot of options. An rv dealer/repair shop would be good source- might save some on ship On line just random pull to verify style Ebay vendor Cleaning old trim bit of effort-putty tape not too bad, simple paint thinner. But does take time.

RE: Gluing Rubber

I reattached part of our slide rubber seal. It had some double sided tape that just failed. The 3m super strength auto molding tape as mentioned so far is working. Its pretty awesome stuff.

RE: Atwood electric jacks w/o Remite

Thought I was the only one-it isnt intuitive. I always have to look at the switches. I want to push switch up to raise camper up, down to lower. But switch position is relative to the jack travel, not camper. Push up to raise jack, down to extend jacks. Hence the 'Extend'/'Retract'. That said it easy enough to 'fix'. http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e178/AnEv942/ourelkhorn/jacksw10.jpg height=480 width=640 Unplug jacks from camper. Remove the 4 screws on motor cover. Gently twist the lower cover, should slide down enough to access switch terminals. Simply reverse the motor leads on both switches by unplugging spades. Jacks unplugged, might need a small screwdriver to assist working off spades. One switch is obvious-motor leads directly connected to switch, other has leads that run to opposite jack which are the single wires, not leads that are jumpered across between switches. If however your power leads are the most accessible you could swap those (both switches) instead of motor leads. If you have another jack probably do that as well - Might cause a moment of surprise to someone else using your jacks.. 'less you could figure a way to relabel.
