RE: Swapping Dometic Fridge for Household Unit

...this camper is never going to move from my permanent site on my property up north. If you have a reliable source of power, no problem at all. Just be sure to maintain the specified clearances.

RE: Got rid of Blk Tank Odor and more

...I cleaned and applied a little plumbers grease to the AAValves, replaced the toilet seal and now I can run the vent fans with the RV buttoned up and no odor..... Complaints about odors are quite common and there are always the replies about this chemical, that chemical, or some home brew technique. I always reply that an RV holding tank system does not smell if everything is working correctly. The only exception is the brief instant when flushing. I'm glad to hear that you have worked the bugs out of your system.

RE: 12V Inline System Fuse

For clarity, that "electrical box" is normally referred to as a J-box or junction box. Without tracking down each and every wire it is impossible to figure out what is being done. Here is one theory. The CB in the picture is original and a previous owner added the one at the battery not being aware of the pictured one.

RE: 12V Inline System Fuse

Protection should be near any power source. Generally that means the line is protected at the battery and at the converter, they are both power sources. I'm not sure what you are calling the "12V electrical box".

RE: User Manuals for Your RV

Not sure where this should be posted, but since I was looking for a user manual for my RV, I found this site that might be of interest for those needing to find their unit User Manual. Other Manufacture User Manuals For Fleetwood Owners Hope I am not duplicating another post. Dennis Thanks for the link. Someone has really done a lot of work accumulating and organizing all that information.

RE: Crazy RVer Gets Arrested

Story from here; http://www.ketv.com/news/65yearold-man-accused-of-using-stun-gun-on-2-women/39204482 A 65-year-old man was arrested for using a stun gun on two women at a lake north of Lincoln over the weekend. The incident was reported around 5:30 p.m. Saturday at Wildwood Lake. The women told sheriff's deputies that a man pulled into a camping area and let his six dogs run loose. An Alaskan malamute made a beeline to where a young family was camping. "(It) attacked their dog," Diane Renker said. "Bit the father and scared the heck out of the three kids." When the dogs started fighting, people tried to break them up. The dogs went into other campsites, grabbing food and threatening kids. After verbal confrontations, it appeared at one point that the owner of the dogs, Robert Miles, was about to strike a woman. That's when Lily Cebuhar and others got involved. "He wasn't taking any control," Cebuhar said. "He was telling us this was a dog park and there was no reason he had to have his dogs on leashes." When Renker jumped in to protect her daughter's friend, she said Miles used a stun gun on her. "He hit her with the Taser," Renker said. "He hit me on the wrist with the Taser." They said that Miles at one point dropped his pants and defecated in front of them. "He goes out into the parking lot, drops his pants and takes a poop in front of all of us," Renker said. Miles tried to flee but was blocked by several campers until deputies and the state patrol arrived. "He tried to run over a couple of people," Renker said. "He pointed a 9 mm handgun at one of the gentlemen." Sheriff's deputies arrested Miles for two counts of second-degree assault, disturbing the peace, allowing dogs to run at large, public indecency and child abuse, since two children saw the incident unfold. "This was pretty bizarre," Sheriff Terry Wagner said. "It's a series of weird events." Both women said they are doing fine after being immobilized with a stun gun. Those people were fools for ganging up and detaining him when he attempted to leave. I'm glad I wasn't there, it would have ended really, really badly if someone pointed a handgun at me or mine.

RE: The RV Life and the environment

Living in an RV is substantially "greener" than living in a 4,000 square feet McMansion.

RE: Rear bumper bracket/mount

Curt sells adjustable receivers for installation under trailers.

RE: Electrical/Converter inquiry

Typically large amp fuses on a converter are 'Reverse Polarity' fuses to protect from battery being connected backwards, cables reversed.... This.

RE: Removing tires

I'm thinking it might be easier and safer to lift one axle at a time.

RE: Venting

If one runs their MH into the campground office building, is it the fault of the campground or the MH driver? How about a tree branch? :B If the upkeep of a park is substandard, vote with your wallet by going somewhere else.

RE: Water problems!

Sounds like it is sucking air. If so the problem is between the tank and the pump. Maybe the winterization valve where you add antifreeze is open?

RE: Dometic fridge

The yellow means you have a leak. The refrigerator or the cooling unit must be replaced. Do NOT attempt to use it as is, a severe fire hazard exists.

RE: How often do yall sanitize your fresh water tank?

Seems lots of people use bleach. Maybe I should start doing this periodically. How much bleach should be used in a 40 gal tank? I don't want to use so much bleach that it can be smelled or tasted. You don't drink the bleach water. After sanitizing for a few hours up to 24 hours, you dump and fill with fresh water. Read this; http://www.sanidumps.com/sanitizervfreshwatersystem.php

RE: Switch from 30 lb. to 20 lb.propane tanks?

Well, it happened. Our beloved trailer is now old enough that the 30 lb. propane tanks have expired and can't legally be refilled. I'm considering replacing them with 20 lb. tanks so when one emptys I can just take it to any number of stores and exchange it for a full tank but I'm not sure about the smaller tank capacity. We don't use the trailer nearly as much as we used to - no more 4 mo. FL stays since we got the park model - but when we do use it, it usually includes one long trip of 3-4 weeks out west. Will we have a problem with the smaller tanks running out frequently? Hard for us to know your usage. How often did you fill the 30# bottles? Two 20# bottles will give you 2/3 the capacity of two 30#.

RE: Seasonal camping battery question

The Elixir ELX series are low quality single stage converters. They are not good for the battery. The good news is that they can operate without a battery connected.

RE: RV Entrance Door

We are looking to relocate our entrance door because the current location is in a spot we would like to utilize for other things. Is this difficult to do? If you have enough money, anything is possible. Probably not very prudent though.

RE: Troublesh5oot Converter Cooling Fan (on all the time)

The fan will never run when unplugged from power source. Do you have an ammeter and can check for a load? What converter do you have? Brand and model number. Some fans are triggered by load, some from heat.

RE: Damage to RV from refrigerator drain hose

Drain hose was damaged and broken. The broken/brittle hose was provided to insurance comoany. System was put on to start getting ready for trip. Found water on the floor and immediately shut everything down. I wasn't expecting this much damage. Something has been leaking for a long time. A one time leak does not rot the floor. This really sucks and I hope you get it fixed in time to enjoy camping again.
