RE: Pismo Beach Water Restrictions

When they can't flush their toilet, I bet they understand the drought. Don't laugh. City was by today trying to have me change out the urinals to the flushless type. They stopped pushing the issue when I asked them how much of the $250.00 per unit were they going to pay.

RE: AC not cooling.

Very possible that the evaporator coil is freezing over with frost/Ice which indicates dirty coils, air leak between intake and discharge sections, freeze sensor dislodged from evap coil. When this coil freezes, air can not pass through it. Do you have better air flow just as you turn it on and then air flow decreases?

RE: Noisy water pump

The best thing to do is be sure noise is isolated from the structure and plumbing system. Some sort of padding between the pump and floor will help such as a mouse pad used for a computer. Isolate the pump from the hard Pex tubing by installing flexible soft nylon reinforced lines on the input and output fittings of the pump. ShurFlo makes a kit for this.

RE: Noisy water pump

There is a VERY small leak......make sure the entire area around the pump is dry, then place dry paper towels around, look for the wet spots.... And this has what to do with the OP's question about noise? The OP never mentioned a leak.

Pismo Beach Water Restrictions

Now in effect: Illegal to wash your RV in the city using a hose. There will be some unhappy people in my park to say the least.

The Valencia park near Magic Mountain is the place to go.

RE: Keystone RV & Thor Industries

I went from a tent trailer to this. The PDI lasted all of 30 minutes The PDI (Pre-Delivery Inspection) is done by the mechanic before the RV is presented to the customer. This is when all of these defects should have been discovered by the dealer. The process where the customer and dealer go through the coach before taking delivery is called the Walk-Through, not a PDI. Don't confuse semantics. Call it what you want. A wise owner/buyer will take their time and slowly and methodically check out the entire RV before driving it off the lot. I am not the one confused. My point was a follow-up to my previous post that stated that most manufacturers pay the dealers for the PDI process to find these defects before the coach is delivered. My other point is that the issues that the OP listed were totally the dealers fault for missing these problems.

RE: Direct TV HD satellite set up

I just went through this a few days ago. Connected the dish directly to the receiver and never got a signal. Found out that I needed a Power Inserter in-line with the coax. Bought one and installed it and got a 96% signal strength. Working great.

RE: Propane pressure

Could be the regulator, but it could be the furnace needs cleaning. You can try using an air hose, but if that doesn't work, you'll probably need to remove the furnace to clean it. And t A dirty furnace has what to do with the insufficient pressure at the other appliances mentioned?

RE: heater

Yes it can. I did that install myself but I worked on RVs for many years. Have someone do it for you if you are not familiar with propane tubing, flaring tools and leak checking a gas system.

RE: What's the coolest thing you've gotten from Craigslist?

The best deal was the purchase of a 2003 tent trailer for $900.00 in mint condition which I sold on eBay for $2400.00. But the coolest thing is a presentation box with a sealed bottle of wine with etched glasses and a cork that looks like a mini helmet from Mario Andretti's commemorative banquet in 1996. The label has a picture of Mario and his Indy car. The bottle and accompanying papers are signed by Mario.

RE: Second Non-Ducted AC Question

An RV roof air does not draw air in from the out side and the compressor has nothing to do with the circulation of air from the fan. Sounds like you may have an air leak between the evaporator coil and condenser coil areas of the sheet metal baffles up on the roof.

RE: Webber Q 100

Actually, the excessive flow device is located in the Acme fitting/Hose assembly and not the tank.
