RE: Starting problems

My coach has a shift lever Morse Control unit that if I do not have it in N correctly it will not start. By moving the lever to OD then back to N it will make contact. Just a safety to make sure it does not start while in a gear that will move the coach. This is on a DP so may not apply to your coach.

RE: Cooling Coil Replacement

As an update to the coil replacement. It was replaced last Friday. Not much cooling, above 50'F by Monday morning Bypassed the controls and ran straight 110V to the heater. Tuesday morning still not cooler Purchased Dorm Fridge for items. Freezer is at 5'F Paperwork filed with Norcold on warrenty for the replacement coil. Should hear today when the new one will be delivered and then the shop will install right away. Delivery will be 4-5 days since ammonia is hazardous and can't go USPS, UPS, or air freight so it just comes freight overland. Until then I'm stuck in 120'F Lake Havasu City and Phoenix. Need to get home for a group campout August 7th and want to stop by Rushmore on the way. Hope all of this works as DW is not happy even tho we are looking at this as our 'Great Adventure'. Right now I'm tired of having fun.

Adjusting Southco C5-11-35

My engine and transmission covers are using the Southco C5-1-35 latches like this one and some of them will not have the handle stay down. It will pop up or never go all the way latched. How do you adjust these so that they will stay locked? This one has me stumped. My transmission cover has locking ones and they stay shut even tho I don't lock them.

RE: gas stops on 285 through New Mexico

Don't know about fuel, last we saw before Carlsbad was in Angelas, TX, but I remember I hated 285 in NM. Semis has beaten that road to death. Lost a hubcap off the TT and thought I would bend the steering linkage it was so full of pot holes. Was alright if we kept two wheels on the shoulder and straddled the right wheel ruts. Good luck. You will find plenty of fuel in Carlsbad with easy access. Did not go further north on 285

RE: Phoenix to Albuquerque

Thanks for the 87 trip through Payson. We will hopefully be doing this in a couple weeks. Did not like I-40 around Flagstaff or I-17 North out of Phoenix.

RE: Noticed warm water comes out of cold faucets. Why?

We are in Lake Havasu City and temps have been above 120 so we have not turned the heater on in weeks. Water right out of the ground is warm enough to bathe and I like really hot showers.

RE: The Big Trip

A lot depends on how far north you plan on staying. In the spring you will run across late snow in the northern states and if you are after April you will have the heat in the southern states. Let us know a little more about the areas you want and we can help more.

RE: Cooling Coil Replacement

Thsnks Dougrainer, that is what I was wondering. Now the wait. It is only 125'F right now in Lake Havasu so it might be a bit longer.

Cooling Coil Replacement

Had the cooling coil replaced in my Norcold N8431 refrigerator. Has anyone had this done and how long did it take for the temps to get to where they should be. I know the ammonia has been shaken up by shipping and needs to settle but how long should this take. We are running it on propane right now and it has only been two hours. I don't want to open it up often to check so wondering if anyone has information.

RE: Seeking refrigerator advice!

Pull the thermister off the coil fins in the fridge which will put it on full blast. If it doesn't cool then you have a dead unit. Mine is being replaced as I write this. Added a fan kit also.

RE: hot water heater

Save the gas and turn it off. We only turn it on gas when needed but leave electric on all the time. It is your choice.

RE: USB Charger Stand (Making My Own) ?

I got a Multi Port USB Charger and put it under the rear TV where there was a small shelf. All the items to be charged are then plugged in with their own cords. The cords are replaceable and any new items can be added. For some we have two cords alike as we might need to plug both phones in during the night.

RE: Do Command Strips work in RVs?

I have a clear one on the outside where we hang our sign. Been going for a long time now and no problems.

RE: Gallup to Rapid City

JFNM, thanks. I've gotten very comfortable being slow and having the dashcam pick up on those who NEED to get in front of me. It is amusing when we look at it later.

RE: Fresh water drain

As Easytime said, the tanks in smaller trailers is under a dinette seat or other storage area. You may be able to see the fill line going into the tank. At the bottom of the tank you should find a 1/4 turn plastic valve that will allow the FW tank to drain.

RE: Gallup to Rapid City

Thank you for all the suggestions. I just found the perfect answer to my question. Google Elevations calculates the grade, distance, and other parameters for the trip. I did need to break it into sections but the answers are there and hardly any spot is over 6% for any length. Good resource.

RE: Gallup to Rapid City

Guys, thanks for all the suggestions. We're from the flat lands of Michigan normal hills west seem a little bigger for us. The coach handles the hills well, engine brake serves well is starting in a lower gear. We have a week from Phoenix to Detroit and I want to be sure to show DW Rushmore, Crazy Horse (Not that big a deal), and some of the stuff once we start east. I've been out here working over the years and have seen some but we'll hit the biggies on the way. Thanks for all the help. The Cummins 300ISB is not a powerhouse but will get the job done.
