RE: Leveling a Fridge while on the Road

Someone mentioned that no RV has a compressor type fridge-----WRONG----I do and I believe several others do. With mine I never worry about it running off level. I go up some tall inclines/roads at times. I believe the absorption run out of tolerance won't kill the refer, just keep it from working properly way off level. Once you are back level I think the ammonia or whatever will drain back properly and the refer resume normal operation. I HAVE BEEN WRONG BEFORE THOUGH. :) Marvin

RE: Leveling a Fridge while on the Road

When I was researching this topic years ago what I found was a statement by (I believe) Norcold in their owners manual that the allowed tolerance was up to 3 degrees side to side and 6 degrees front to back. I purchased small levels that were graduated in degrees and placed them on the refer. A quick check told me if I was OK to run the refer. The item is Lev O Gage II and is found in RV stores. http://www.suncompany.net/productDetail.php?stockNumber=306-R I agree, Below is a copy and paste formula that I used when I had a 3 way fridge. "If you use a 9" level on your counter top or un-carpeted floor, with one end touching surface, by raising the low end of the level until the bubble is centered between the lines the raised end should be less than 1\2" above the countertop. Actually at 9" length 15/32"= 3 degrees. I think most boxes allow up to 3 degrees side to side and 6 front to rear ( of box ) Hope this helps" Marvin

RE: manual crank awning.

I have a Carefree of Colorado Freedom iii awning that will not crank closed. It sounds like it is jumping the gears. I have searched the net but I can't find the part assembly. Is this a DYI repair. Any help would be appreciated. Make sure the vehicle is level when cranking in all the way as sometimes they will roll up crooked and not line up. I have, at times had my wife wife apply pressure at one end to make it line up. If out of line you can strip gear cogs with too much pressure. Marvin

RE: Convert Crank Up Sat Dish to WIFI

Here's exactly how to do it. It's really to directional for portable use. Richard Richard, aren't most of these signals password protected by the owner? Marvin

RE: Falcon 19 footer - 1986 - newbie with questions

d0n1, Looking at your fridg, I think it has a 12 volt compressor that runs off the battery when not hooked to shore power and when hooked to shore power there is a relay and small converter in that box on the bottom that converts the 110 back to 12v so as to not run down the battery. I guess you have a larger converter that keeps the battery charged and distributes 110v and 12 v. Marvin EDIT to add that I haven't had mine out so I don't know if it has a 110v plug.:)

RE: Falcon 19 footer - 1986 - newbie with questions

d0n1, That appears to be a 12volt only fridge. You should like it. The furnace is under mine and there is storage space above with a door. I drilled four 1-1/2" holes in the door to aid cooling. I got just a little warm inside the storage, not much, and the vent holes cured that. Marvin

RE: Honda 2K surging/hunting

Many thanks for the informative answers. If I try to crank it after sitting for a couple of weeks I have to yank the cord 5-6 times with the choke on. Could be this nearly 75 year old arm I' m using. :B

RE: Falcon 19 footer - 1986 - newbie with questions

d0n1, I have a 17' 1988 Horizon made by the same company and it has a 12 volt compressor to run the refer just like the 120volt one at home. The 12 volt only like mine is the best I've seen. Look for a ROCKER switch neat to top left of the door to turn it on and off. I can't help you if it is a 2 or 3 way refer. Marvin

RE: Falcon 19 footer - 1986 - newbie with questions

d0n1, I had this built for the front. http://i938.photobucket.com/albums/ad222/GA_Boy/Van%20RV/19CompletedTray_zps994bd1ac.jpg]Clicky And had an aluminum cover built for the Honda 2K. @K is secured by the 4 legs and the box with 2 locks. A chain takes the place of the box when the 2K is running. I have a transfer switch and a 30 amp line run to the front from the Xfer sw. The gas can was to take to the daughters 1-1/2 mile away. I don't carry but a gallon on the back most of the time. http://i938.photobucket.com/albums/ad222/GA_Boy/Van%20RV/Generatorcover_zps3c424769.jpg]Click

RE: What Did You Do To Your Class B Today ?

Added a bit of Freon to the A/C (On the engine) and loaded some of our Surf Fishing Gear. Maybe health will issues will let us go in October. Fingers crossed.

Honda 2K surging/hunting

Due to 2 knee replacements I was unable to crank my 2k for 12 weeks. Yesterday I cranked it and it continually surged up and down the RPM scale. I shut it down and added a double dose (2oz.) of Sea Foam and started it again. I just let it keep surging out of the econo mode and after about 15 minutes it leveled off and ran perfectly. Question------------Is it OK to run Sea Foam and Sta-Bil together. I think Yes. Marvin

RE: How do you carry Blue Tote?

We used ours a couple of times but found it too much hassle. It is now in my flea market stuff.

F First On Recreational Day. O Once you own one you want to keep it. R Really good at pulling the load. D Don't need a mechanic to follow you around. You guessed it, I'm a FORD guy. Nothing wrong with the Chevy either but I think GM is on hard times and Support may not always be there. Marvin

RE: toilet paper

We use whatever we have at home. Right now it is Scott 1000. No reason to buy the expensive RV TP Unless you are just trying to get rid of your money faster. :)

RE: Intervec Falcon 170 parts needed

Both of my hose holders are underneath and not as low to the ground as the Sewer dump valves.

RE: Did your summer travel plans work out?

NOT AT ALL----------------------LOL A double Knee replacement July 7th put a halt to all our plans. At best we are hoping for a Surf Fishing trip to Flagler Beach in October. Right now I have very limited range in the knees. M

RE: Intervec Falcon 170 parts needed

You will probably have to replace the electric cord box with a new type Unless you find one in a salvage yard, which is doubtful. You would have to enlarge the hole for this one. Clicky I don't use the fan in my '88Horizon so I can't help there except to say you can always upgrade with a new one. Clicky Sink cover-check here.Clicky Hose holder. I think the 21" will hold a 10' hose plus ends. I made an extension for mine plus added a second one so I can carry 30' of hose. Have fun.
