RE: Need a new interior door skin

Just did mine. The product you want is FRP, fiberglass reinforced plastis. About $25 for 4x8 sheet. A little brittle to cut so put painters tape down first and cut thru tape, helps keep the splinters in place. HD or Lowes both carry it.

RE: metal rv port

Note most of the ports have two styles of roof. The rounded rafters are not as strong as the roofs with the perlens(sp?). If you are subject to high ends and snow, consider the latter. The direction of the roof sheeting is also different. I have one of each.

RE: Sway bars, which one

This is what I was looking for. Both bars are 1.5" and pretty much the same bend. Mounting points are about the same, just different fasteners. Roadmaster is $200 more for my needs. Just trying to find out what the extra $ is for.

Sway bars, which one

Two major providers. Hellwig and roadmaster. The mounting points differ on my rig between the two. One requires some drilling, so install will be a little more involved. Price difference is considerable. So, is there really any difference between the two in performance? Please, not just a go with the easier or cheaper, is there a real performance difference.

Ford E 350 headlight replacement

Looking at swapping out headlights on late 90s Ford. Lots of replacements on ebay but not many seem to be DOT. Most use the same bulbs as what is on now. Anybody done the conversion? Any problems?

RE: BIG Waste Water Tote Wanted

Once saw a TT with a plastic 55 gal drum all plumbed nice and neat. They had it mounted on a good hand truck laying on its side. Looks like all they had to do was disconnect, stand the hand truck up and walk to the dump.

Teflon tape

What is the difference between yellow (for gas applications) and white Teflon tape?

RE: Charge Wizard light

OK, thanks Bobbo and Cloudriver. Had to take the panel off and the jumper on the bottom was not set all the way. Now that works properly, got to get the furnace to ignite. Fan comes on, sail switch seems to be clicking, just no ignition. So another day with a Motorhome.

RE: Charge Wizard light

Op again. I know this is the TECH forum, but I was trying not to be to wordy with my post. I thought I had implied that there was a converter/charger in the circuit by indicating a slight increase of voltage with the gen running. But my question was about the lack of an indicator light operating on the fuse board, while the gen was running to bring a bat up from 12.31 volts.

RE: Charge Wizard light

Piano, surely you are wrong about the gen not charging the house bat?

Charge Wizard light

Just installed a PD4645 bottom replacement and fuse board. At rest house batteries show 12.31 volts . With gen running, bat show 12.70 and climbs slowly, got up to 13.25. With gen off and motor running, throwing 14.24 volts to house bat. Question: the charge wizard ( no pendent) has a light and manual over ride button, with the gen running and the button pressed, I cannot get the light to show any flashing codes as the instructions suggest. With the bat showing this low voltage, shouldn't the gen be throwing 14+ volts and the wizard light flashing?

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: Chinook ... and upgrade advice..?

Go to the CHINOOK RV OWNERS website. Check out the photo section.

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.
