RE: water heater flame fades out

I am not sure how the burner on your hot water heater works, but if it is like the burner in my refrigerator it could be the burner is clogged with rust. If so, try cleaning the burner and see if that solves your problem.

RE: Will Towing a Keystone TH to Alaska Make it Fall Apart?

Its been a while since I was to Alaska in our fiver, but the thing I learned on the road was: If you see road sign saying "Bump" you better slow down. It is not like in the lower 48 where a bump sign means a slight change in the road. On the Alaska hiway they only put a bump sign out when its a really big bump...

RE: Norcold 121x refigerator

I am just taking a guess, but I would say that your RV refrigerator would not be a candidate for running on a device that converts 12 volt DC to 120v AC. Your refrigerator uses resistive heating to turn liquid ammonia to a gas. The current draw would too high. It would exceed your batteries capability.

RE: Brakes 2500HD 2007

I am at 109,000 miles of towing our fifth wheel and all the brakes have still a lot of pad. I think about 150,000 I may have to change the brake pads.

RE: installing towel bars in bathroom

Fifteen years ago I screwed my towel rack to the bathroom wall using toggle bolt anchors. This rack has carried two towels all over the United States and Canada. Never had one bit of a problem. I don't have to worry about them falling off and taking portions of the wall with them.

RE: Which 5th wheel hitches will work with the bed rails I have?

I know your not looking for a new hitch, but in case you change your mind, Pullrite has a new line of hitches (model 1900) that they say will fit all bedrails.

That sounds like a nightmare of wiring problem if you have 5 switches. I assume there is a switch at each place you can get water in your unit. I would call the manufacturer to see how all these switches operate. They may all be in parallel with the power source and pump or there is some sort of central electrical box that keeps track of how the switches are set.

RE: 05 Montana AC problem

First of all reset the ac circuit breaker on the electrical panel. If the ac still doesn't run, the only thing I can think of at the moment is get the thermostat manual out and check that all the switches are set correctly. If he does not have a manual for the thermostat you can go on line and download one. If everything is set correctly then it is either wired wrong or the thermostat is bad.

RE: 5th wheel hitch questions?

Good show. Ask about 2 specific hitches and get recommendations for something else. The 1900 is something new, but looking at the 1900 manual it has the same plate and hitch mechanism as the all the pullrites and the frame is similar. I would not hesitate to purchase a 1900 knowing how sturdy and reliable the pullrite hitches are.

RE: 5th wheel hitch questions?

I have used my pullrite super 5th 16K hitch for 18 years. I used it on my first truck and switched it my second truck. It has pulled my fivers over 250,000 miles and never once let me down. Never had a problem with high hitches. In my opinion a Pullrite hitch is a first class, safe fifth heel hitch.

RE: Break away brake cable

I put an eye on my hitch so I could hook the brake switch wire to the hitch. Been doing that for 18 years now. I don't think it makes much difference where you hook it as long as it hooked to the tow vehicle.

RE: Roof paint

Is the area you are speaking of Gel Coat or paint? If it is gel coat I wouldn't worry about these small surface cracks. Boats get them all the time and they don't leak even tho it might look bad.

RE: Tow Haul button on Ford F-53 chassis

I have tow/haul on my F-250 PSD. I like it a lot. It will cut down on your use of the brakes. It operates the transmission so that it automatically gears down and provides braking. This, however, will cause the engine RPM to rise and if your not careful on a long steep incline your RPM can go over redline. In this instance you have to brake to help out.

RE: Engine overheating

You might need to clean out your radiator fins so more air can pass through and flush the water cooling system to allow more water flow.

RE: Convert to 50 amp

Several years ago I converted my fifth wheel to 50 amps. I purchased the fify amp cord from someone on ebay and I found the electrical box and breakers at Home Depot. As mentioned before the difficult job was removing the 30 amp cable and getting the 50 amp cable into the fiver.

RE: Plugging into house?

I have run our ac many a time from a 20 amp plug. We make sure, however, that no other alternating current electrical appliance is running when we are using the air conditioner.

RE: Slide out not working

I don't have any advice as to what is wrong, but it might help if you let everyone know what sort of slide mechanism you have. Is it electrical motor driven on cog rails; or hydraulic; or electric motor pulling cables to extend and retract?

RE: Why Coach Net or Good Sam for emergency road service.

My insurance, USAA, does not provide towing.

RE: Where do I get manuals for a 1996 Wildwood TT?

Most trailers manuals are only a repeat of the manuals supplied by the manufacturer's of the installed equipment. I have never seen a trailer manual that gave you a wiring or plumbing schematic.
