RE: Water pump airlock??

Leave a faucent open and let the pump run until water comes out. It does not hurt the pump to run without water, so let it run.

RE: Class C Cabover Rebuild

Or use 2 layers of 3/8" plywood and stager the joints, cost more but would be much stronger.

RE: Generator propane/Natural gas conversion big sale

This past summer I was searching for a LP powered generator for home back-up. I found one that I had never heard of, so I was doing a little research on it. Found a link, don't remember where, that was for asking the manufacture about it. I guy stated he and a neighbor both had purchased a gasoline fired one, and his neighbor had convered his to LP. And that his neighbors now smoked a little, while his did not. The person answering stated that LP fires at a much higher temperatue, it was stated the degrees but I don't remember, and that now the warranty on the converted LP one was now void. Many years ago I was thinking of converting a farm tractor to LP. The local LP supplier stated that I would need to have the head machined down to raise the compression on the engine.

RE: generator transfer switch

Every time that I read about a problem with an ATS, I think about how I am really glad that Winnebago put a manual transfer in my RV. To transfer power, I unplug from the pedestal and plug in to an outlet in my electrical compartment that the generator powers. This was for a friend. I'm with you. My transfer switch si just like yours. Dusty

RE: Battery question

Most modern TV's only run on 12 volts. If there is a little power pack, called a wall wart, that plugs into the 120 volt receptacle, look at it close. Most likely it will say 12 volt dc output, and the other end plugs into the TV. Just find, or build a cord that has a 12 volt cigarette lighter plug on one end and will plug into your TV with the other end. Dusty

RE: generator transfer switch

It was above the refrigerator in the 120v breaker, 12v fuse panel. we had to remove all the breakers and the buss bar, and the fuse holders to get to the generator transfer switch. The neutral side had burned up. It doesn't seem to me that one should ever have to tear apart an electrical panel to get to anything. I really wonder about some of the engineering today. Thanks for the help, Dusty

RE: Help w/ Water Heater

The flame detector is NOT a thermocouple, it is just a rod/electrode, flame/fire is a conductor. Thus there is a current to ground through the flame rod which the circuit board senses. So a dirty rod or if the rod is not in the flame. Will it to shut down. Dusty

RE: Insurance

We had Progressive on a car that we left in Florida. What I liked about them was that twice a year you reporter, by e-mail, the odometer reading, and they based your rate on how many miles you drove.

RE: Expansion tank addition

When a motor starts it draw a large amount of power to get up to running speed. So by putting in an accumulator tank you are cutting down the number of times the pump starts, there for saving a small amount of power. How much, I don't know. I wouldn't think very much. But like others have said that tank is a very nice addition. Dusty

RE: 30 amp breaker keeps popping

Breakers can become weak, if it was the campground breaker that tripped then I would say that was where the problem could have been.

RE: MH Battery switch

Personally I'm not a fan of White Rogers, I would look for another manufacture.

RE: 2015 Itasca Navion Battery Problems

We have an '03 Itasca. When we are parked and plugged in to 120v I block on, with anything that will do the job, that over ride switch that you need to hold on. Then the engine battery will be kept charged.

RE: Water Heater

Just leave the water heater turned to by pass until you get to warmer weather. Be sure you don't turn on the burner until you fill it with water.

RE: Question for the electricians out there.

There are breaker "inter lock" brackets that can be added to your main panel that can be used for a transfer switch. You use the first breaker for the generator, and the interlock bracket fastens to the main and generator breaker. This makes it so only the main or generator breaker can be on NOT both at the same time.
