LED flicker part deux

Had a long going post about my new LED fixture with ripples when on gen or shore power. Worked fine on 12v. Got new PD 4645 in and installed today. Light works fine now. Any body need a 10000 uF capacitor?

RE: LED flicker

LSCamper, the light works properly off of 12 volts. Problem with flicker is when on gen or shore power.

RE: LED flicker

OP again. Well the cap has been shipped. So now in "yes/no" language, I need a new "house"? So asking again, will the PD 4645 replacement bottom end eliminate this ripple effect? If not, what will. This Mag 6345 is in a 1998 class C . I know of at least one other that has this exact same light strip, but in a much newer unit that does not have the ripple effect, but don't know what converter they have.

RE: LED flicker

OK, ordered the cap Mex linked. In looking at different brands 10000uF some are advertised with seemingly short to me useful lives. Hope this is not the case with this one.

RE: LED flicker

OP again. So if I replaced the 6345 with a PD 4645 converter upgrade, would that absolutely, positively,guaranteed to fix my flickering. This $34 light is fixin to cost some real money!

RE: LED flicker

OP again. Mex, not so much the plus to plus remark, but getting to the positive thermal. Looks like would have to pull whole unit out to get to it. This is a Magnetek 6345 unit. No access from the rear. The flickering is very evident at any view. Sort of like a strob. The strip came out of Elkhart on ebay. 300mm 12v under cabinet light. All pics in the add show in a RV.

RE: LED flicker

Sorry Mex, need something a little more simple than that for me. Just wonder why all the other light fixtures work ok. This new little strip is on only about 12" long.

LED flicker

Just installed a LED strip light in bathroom and works fine off of 12v. Cranked up generator and light flickers. Only this new one, have about 10 other bulbs that work fine. This new strip is 2 speed, bright and brighter. Doesn't flicker as bad on low setting. Any simple ideas?

RE: Table options

Would like to see more pics of that layout also. I did a search for 97 m/w and couldn't find anything like the op shows.

RE: Scanguagell trans temp?

OP here. Think the trans is a R4100.

Scanguagell trans temp?

Anyone know for sure if a 1997 E 350 6.8 will display the trans temp on the X guage? The literature seems to say maybe, maybe not.

iPhone OBD app

What app are you using instead of the scanguagell for an iPhone. Looked at torque pro and some others but seem to be mainly for the android. I want to see rpm, water temp, and trans temp. This will be used in a 97E350. Can't seem to find any menus for the apps available?

RE: Onan fuel filter

Thanks again Cloud, we do have a slight different config. Mine has 2- 10 plug vertical connectors under the air filter, the solinod is in the middle and the board is over to the left on the bottom and another loom over it. The onan shell sits to low and close to the cabinet to access the torx screws in the front. Just a poor design all around, and then really shoehorned in to small of a cabinet for proper maintenance. Think I'm going to give up without breaking anything as it runs OK, just wanted to do some PM.

RE: Onan fuel filter

Thanks Cloudriver, good explanation. However there is only about 1.5" between the edge of the Onan and the cabinet it sits in. Maybe if I remove the 4 bolts holding it down and shifting the tail pipe, there might be enought slack in all the wires to pry it to the right enought to get my arm back there. Looks like the only option. Thanks again.

Onan fuel filter

Subject: 4KYFA26100G. Wanting to change the fuel filter in this gen set. Maybe the "G" prefix makes it impossible as I see it to change the filter without removing the whole ball of wax from the cabinet which I rather not go thru. With a mirror and flash light I see something about the size of a D cell flashlight battery(filter?) Problem is it is strapped(?) to the bottom of the pan under the air filter and behind the starter solinod and at least 3 wiring harness and other electrical boxes. In all of my manuals and what I've seen on line, there is no depiction of the location of the filter, or the fuel pump. The manual shows the fuel hose from the vehicle tank coming into a barb fitting in the back left of the cabinet and exiting into the carb, but nothing in between. So question is how do you change this filter?

RE: Hood won't open

On my "E" 350 had the same problem. Mine was caused by easing the hood down and not giving a good hard shove at the last moment to get the lock to fully seat. The cable or the latch in the grill wouldn't release. I had to take off the windshield wipers, that plastic panel under the wipers to get access to remove the hinge bolts completely removing the hood. Reset the hood latch and put everything back together. Just don't baby the hood when closing. If you have to go this route, operate your cable release before reassembly to make sure cable has not parted somewhere along its path.

RE: Getting all the water out of the water heater

I use a turkey baster with a short piece of hose to suck out the last bit of water. This also sucks out the bits of anode rod that don't come out with flushing. Only 1$ at dollar store.

RE: Norcold 6053

OP again. I've found at least 6 different model numbers for the burner assembly, that all look exactly alike. However no cross reference to my #6053 model refer.

RE: Norcold 6053

Thanks Chris, that's the part I'm talking about. I,m on the road right now but will undertake the disassembly when I get home. For now it's working on DC/AC. On ebay I find several model numbers for the burner assembly, cheapest being $30. And with a new hose $50. Would you happen to know what model # would I need, this is a 1998 or there about year refer 6053.
