RE: Refrigerator Flame

Thanks to all. When I fix this I will post. jor

RE: Refrigerator Flame

Since other appliances operate, I doubt you did a good job on the orifice cleaning. Sputter is either orifice or lack of LP volume which is an orifice problem. Doug Thought I did, anyhow. I've done the procedure in the past and never had this problem. Maybe I'll buy another burner as another poster suggested or give it another cleaning (along with the tube) when we get home. Regarding the lack of LP volume, do you think this could be caused by the regulator at the tank? I suspect it is the original. Thanks. jor

RE: Refrigerator Flame

The orifice and tubing Ahhh... now we're getting somewhere. I am familiar with the burner/orifice cleaning process and did a good job of that before we left on this trip but I did not even think about cleaning out the supply tube itself. This is a new one on me. Thanks for the tip. Someone else mentioned that it could be my regulator although everything else operates well. jor

Refrigerator Flame

1997 Norcold Model 982 I just bought this rig with the above frig. I intend to replace it with a residential but am using it for now. (on a 3,500 mile trip) Just to be safe, before we left I installed an ARP device and cleaned the burner and orifice.. Anyhow, it works as it should with a nice blue flame EXCEPT the flame kind of spits. i.e. as if it momentarily loses its gas supply. It continues to cool but I can hear a continuous shhh-t-shhh-t-shhh... from inside almost like a perculator. From the outside I can see the flame stutter. The only adjustment I see is a little air shutter but it doesn't seem to make any difference. I should add that the other LP devices (water heater, 4 burner stove and furnace) work fine. Any ideas? Thanks. jor Just noted something. If I blow gently into the burner area the flame behaves properly. It's like it's running a little rich or something. It's cooling OK but it can't be efficient with this flame behavior. jor Just noted something. If I blow gently into the burner area the flame behaves properly.

RE: Sat Dish

do you know when the antenna was purchased/installed? Sometime after 2010 as the owner's manual is dated 2010. jor

RE: Sat Dish

Thanks. Sounds like it's not worth messing with. I think I'll just throw it. More room for solar panels. jor

Sat Dish

I bought another RV (76 GMC). Always wanted one. it came with an in-motion satellite dish and receiver. We don't use satellite so I'd like to sell it cheap if it is not obsolete. Is there a market for one of these? It's a Winehard Model RT800T (white dome). It is also sold as RTT-80W. Thanks. jor http://i102.photobucket.com/albums/m105/joroiga/satdish_zpshzrfnty8.jpeg

RE: LP vs. Gas

Pemex NOVA almost gasoline I bought many gallons of that Nova (we used to call it no va) back in the late 70s and early 80s. My old pickup would run on (and on). Kinda hard to turn off an engine using that stuff. I'd take it out on a lonely two lane and blow it out from time to time. Sure was cheap though. A friend of mine bought a little diesel Le Car and used to drive between Presidio and El Paso, Texas. He'd fill up in Mexico at I think 13 cents a gallon and make the trip for less than $2.50. Thanks and I will check for detonation. jor

RE: LP vs. Gas

Are you positive that it has been outfitted to ONLY run on LP? I should have taken more care in my post. It is, indeed, dual function. The owner ran it on LP rather than gas. Thanks to all. jor

LP vs. Gas

I'm thinking about buying another rig (sold ours six months ago). This rig is a GMC (1976) with an Olds 455. It's low mileage and has only run on LP. I've got a couple of questions: 1. Other than it being less efficient are there any negatives associated with running on LP? 2. In that this rig has been running only LP, other than rotted gas line, what other problems might I encounter? Thanks. jor
