RE: OPD Fail

Are you sure the pigtail isn't bad?

RE: Hot exhausting air from Gen being sucked in by cool inlet

Onan has a test for new installations using 2 measurement points- one 4' away from the genset, the other in the air inlet. They spec the max temp rise of 25 degrees F over ambient. Baffles can be fashioned, which actually do a ton to quiet the genset, if they are done correctly. http://bryantrv.com/images/temp/rvnet/onan_cooling.png

RE: 1999 Alpenlite Clearance Lights

Sounds like a Petersen Manufacturing 125 light .

RE: Lithium Ion vs Lead Acid

Progrssive Dynamics just came out with the Inteli-Power® PD9100L Series 12- & 24-Volt Lithium Ion Converter/Chargers.

RE: 1989 Onan Generator ingnition coil question

That's a vacuum pulloff- it is doing what it is supposed to do. The reason it moves is the surging- no vacuum at wide open throttle. http://bryantrv.com/images/temp/rvnet/onanchoke.png

RE: 1989 Onan Generator ingnition coil question

Have you tried putting a load on it? Often the idle jet is hard to clean, and with no load it will not get enough fuel, which makes the throttle open, but that's too much. If you put a load on it, the speed smooths out. But... points are another item they list for surging, so....

RE: LED lights

Just search for "g4 led replacement"- there are tons out there. The main difference is back pin or side pin.

RE: Winegard Antenna Booster

Forget it. Get a power supply made for the Jack. I have one but by using the stock setup, I have been able to leave all the coax as is. For instance, the Winegard unit and all the associated wiring is under the floor of a clothes closet. I can install the Jack power supply as a standalone but would prefer replacing the Winegard unit if it is possible to do so. Thanks. jor The Jack power supply is functionally identical to what you pictured- the only difference is minor. Just get a female F coupler and cut the power cord to the Jack PS and wire it in.

RE: Thetford 2 pedal RV toilet - one pedal broke &%#!

A lot depends on the model- I would bet you have an Aqua Magic IV, and that fix would be a cable replacement package- an easy and cheap fix, Thetford p/n 24571. But.. there are a lot of 2 pedal Thetford models, all using different parts.

RE: Coleman AC parts

Do you mean the inside ceiling assembly? You will need the model number and whether you need a "free blow" or ducted assembly.

RE: Felt so bad for older couple traveling today

I put over 400,000 miles on one of my trailers, I bought it used, sold it 20 years ago, and it is still going strong. I've also seen motor homes whose bodies were so delaminated that I wouldn't drive them a hundred yards.

RE: Unknown control lamp in dashboard

According to (I kid you not)- http://dashboardsymbols.com/, that is an http://dashboardsymbols.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/electric_shift_malfunction.gif electronic shift malfunction indicator.

RE: Jack TV antenna head and SureLock signal finder.

Is the red light on the Jack head itself on?

RE: Water heater problem made worse

You can buy replacement coils for Suburban or Hydroflame, which work fine for the Atwood- it is Hydroflame p/n 3475 - the difference is it has quick disconnect terminals, not wires. It may be possible to repair the coil you have- it's just very fine wire you have to deal with.

RE: 1989 Onan Generator ingnition coil question

Keep in mind that is a "wasted spark" type system, it fires both plugs at the same time, so if either plug or wire is bad, no spark, as the completed circuit goes through both. That's also why the plug gap is only .025.

RE: ARPrv refrigerator control

I haven't used one myself, but I have installed a couple, and spoke with the inventor at length. In my opinion, it should be standard equipment on every absorption fridge.

RE: Coil cleaning, Coleman Mach: fins breaking off

I've seen coils completely shot after 2 years at the beach.

RE: [Problem Solved] A/C and ceiling fans not working....

Checking across the terminals is meaningless- it doesn't tell you anything. You need to check between the terminals and ground. We know the panel is getting power because the refrigerator, slides, jacks, etc. are working, and they are the other leads hooked to other breakers. I'm not really sure what a fuse checker is, so I cannot comment on that, but it sounds like a test light, which would mean the problem is in the kill switch. To find the kill switch, you will have to trace the wire from that panel- it will be in that wire, somewhere between the panel and the inside fuse panel- but probably in that front compartment. This *could* be an option, but the schematic shows it, and not as an option.

RE: Converter question

That will work fine- lights and the heating element in the refrigerator will not care about the voltage ripple (which is usually 6v p-p on those), and the voltage will drop running the refrigerator. We used those converters for years with no issues, but that was pre-electronics in RVs.

RE: New type or water heating, for some RV'S maybe ??

I'm not really sure I agree with "New type of water heating". Near as I can tell the only real difference is the heating element is graphite rather than metal, even though they say "No heating element". They are running the current through the water- the graphite rods are electrodes, not elements.
