RE: A&E awning to Carefree

Most of the dislike for electric models is due, IMHO, to A&E models. Most Carefree models can be tilted (and they roll up and down to the tilted position).

RE: Koehler 5 confidant generator

Sounds like a governor problem on the Koehler. Does the speed recover at all under load, or does it just keep slowing?

RE: Hard Start kits: Supco SPP6 vs. Dometic #3310727.015

I read somewhere on this forum how you can tell if your AC already has a hard start kit on it by the serial numbers ?? I cannot find that thread , can anybody help? Chris Bryant >?? Only for Coleman (RVP) units- the second number of the second string tells what it has- like 7333-6664 If that number is a 6, there is no start kit, a 7 means PTCR kit, 8 or 9 means a relay based kit.

RE: Ac compressor won't kick off

It is the thermostat- that is the only component that would do that- the OP has a purely mechanical setup- no relays, no electronics, just a mechanical thermostat and switch.

RE: New life for old XP

The coolest thing, IMHO, is taking the hard drive out of the XP computer and running it as a virtual machine- not really easy, but possible. ( note the disclaimer). Easy to take a snapshot of the whole thing for backup, no need for installation, activation, etc.

RE: refrig problem

Usually, that points to a bad door gasket, or the door wasn't closed tight.

RE: Propane plumbing - adding cat heater

Compression connections are not used on gas- only flair or inverted flair. I also wound not use those gas appliance connectors- they really are not meant for constant movement and vibration. A flex rubber line is what you want. Last- no, you cannot hook a pipe to a flare fitting- it will not be gas tight.

RE: Fridge Heater Element

I always use anti sieze compound. It is actually good for heat transfer, better than "dry".

RE: Water heater anode rod

Suburban does offer an aluminum anode rod if the magnesium one breaks down too quickly, but that's usually considered a couple per year- It will break down faster at the end- if it's just 60% at that end, you have at least another season before needing replacement.

RE: I am looking for a certain PEX piping connector

You can buy either a 1/2" FPT x pex fitting, or a 1/2" FPT swivel fitting x pex- the swivel fitting is easier to connect and disconnect.

RE: Digital television antenna - a simple solution

Well- it's good to know that tv antennas are just a huge scam, and that a wire stuck in the TV is every bit as good. Think of the millions of dollars that you have saved people (though forcing Winegard and Channel Master out of business is not very nice).

RE: Slide not working...Why?

Are you testing for voltage under load, or just the unconnected leads? Are you testing between the leads, or from the leads to ground? These simply switch the polarity to reverse, so the ground could be bad if you are testing to ground, and not between leads. Likewise, a bad connection can show voltage under no load.

RE: Hey Atwood! How about a useful Fantastic Vent website?

FWIW, they *just* changed it- here's the archive.org snapshot from this February 14- still the old site.

RE: On demand water heater installation

I do not believe an electric on demand water heater is practical in an RV, unless it is a 50 amp rig, and you don't mind spending more than half of that capacity on hot water. Most I have seen are 30 amp/240 volt units- 20 amps at 120 volts just is not going to heat water on demand very well. Looking- a 3400 watt 120 volt model only gives a 35 degree rise at .7 gpm- not enough for a shower to me, just enough for hand washing.

RE: Changing BIOS settings?

Don't worry about it- those are pretty standard settings. Even if it messes up, you can physically reset the BIOS (I know because I once turned off the on board video- without having a video card installed :) )

RE: Norcold 1210LR Heating Elements Failing

Doug wrote "Residential's fail also. Probably as much as RV refers. I have 2 in the shop(motorhomes) right now awaiting the Repair people to show up. Doug". Yes but those residential fridges are not known for starting hundreds of fires, recalls the manufacturer doesn't fix, have an added electric box to cover the manufacturer's ass, and provide limited cooling when the temperature rises. I prefer my new poison. Dave Actually, they are known for that. Far more residential models have been recalled for starting fires than RV models, and the temperature limits are basically the same.

RE: Norcold 1210LR Heating Elements Failing

No, they are not OEM. I understand its "MY" problem but that doesn't answer the question I posted and whose problem it might be isn't even close to relevant to what I asked. The reason I posted the question was to fix "my" problem. And, in hindsight, wish I had just trashed the Norcold and replaced it with a residential as well. Um- he said "THAT is your problem", not "that is YOUR problem"- big difference, and it inherently implies the answer.

RE: TV antenna

If this is a Jack antenna you can download a manual here: Jack manual That's it- the coax you see comes from a splitter on the roof, and is for the signal strength meter in the metal case.
