RE: Coleman mach 1 power saver on a honda 2000

You are short cycling it- don't. You shut the compressor off, and the system is under very high pressure- the compressor will not restart in that case. Wall thermostat models all have time delays built in, but mechanical controls don't- they rely on the user to not cycle them quickly.

RE: Long gray valve handle

Yes, you can, as long as it is a solid handle, as stated above.

RE: clean up wiring mess

It's been a while, but IIRC, there is a cable from that battery to a hot stud on the drivers side. That's where I would hook up.

RE: Awning Roller Tube

ZipDee uses a heavy steel tube, but they have instructions on straightening bent tube at http://www.awningsbyzipdee.com/repairs-and-adjustments---manual-awning.html.

RE: Electric Awning question

Chris Bryant, thank-you for your concern, but my awning will not tip if that arm is bent. It is designed to slide straight if it is to tip. If it is bent, it will never self tip. The purpose for the knob is to tighten it down so it won't slide back into the up position. If it's bent, there's nothing to tighten as the inside part of the bar cannot slide up and down the outside part of the bar. Your photo is completely correct for the style of awning arm pictured there. There are actual hinged joints in your photos, and looks like nothing slides. In this case, I can certainly understand why extending all the way out would lock up the arm. Mine does not lock. The two halves of the arm slide into each other to cause the tipping to work. If bent, they don't slide at all, which would cause water to pool in the awning, and eventually the weight would break the arms. You are not using it correctly- the sliding adjustment is only to adjust the pitch of the awning, in order to tilt it. The rain dump has nothing to do with that sliding adjustment. The rain dump is done by the gas spring which holds the awning out- when the weight of the water pooling is more than the gas spring force, the awning will dump, except it must be properly extended, with the "knuckle" slightly bent. Read the owners manual- https://www.edometic.com/allusr/pdoc.nsf/pm/C107A29B517EF24F8525796100633574/$FILE/3310%20895%20POWER%20PATIO%20AWNING%20USER'S%20GUIDE.pdf It is very clear about not hyperextending the awning.

RE: water heater heat exchange leak

On most, the heat exchanger is just a very short piece of tubing welded to the outside of the tank, so repair should be easy, fwiw.

RE: Installing 12v 30a circuit breaker for landing gear

The breaker should replace the fuse, and should be close to the battery, which is where the fuse should have been.

Odd- using those links I see nothing on either. Using multiple machines. Oh well...

Here's an odd one

So, I had to go to the good sam portal to make a post, and it posted, but now images don't show up on the GS portal, but they do on rv.net http://forums.goodsamclub.com/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/29303939/gotomsg/29304249.cfm#29304249 https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/29303939/gotomsg/29304249.cfm#29304249

RE: Website for selling RV parts?

It will be tough to sell those other than locally- shipping will be considerable, plus the bother of crating.

RE: Electric Awning question

http://i263.photobucket.com/albums/ii142/dutchmensport/Camping%20Tips/20170526_100505a_zpsonvcfts2.jpg I want to point out that the awning pictured is over-extended. The arms should not be straight- they will not always dump correctly that way, and the awning itself will gather more water. http://bryantrv.com/images/temp/rvnet/powerextension1.jpg http://bryantrv.com/images/temp/rvnet/powerextension2.jpg http://bryantrv.com/images/temp/rvnet/powerextension3.jpg The correct way is to extend it, them retract until the fabric is straight over the tube. Not sure why the images are not showing- they are now also links, so you can click and see-

RE: Installed new Dometic Rooftop A/C - Do I Dicor caulk?

The 14 x 14 inch gasket should be in place to keep water from getting back into the trailer... You would want any and all water that gets inside the roof mounted housing from its vents etc to freely flow away from the air conditioner unit... We always like to park with alittle tilt to the backside of the trailer just to keep the air conditioner roof drain to go in that direction in lieu coming down on the patio side... Typical Air Conditioner Install Diagram... Note the large Roof gasket position... http://www.rvst.org/candidate/Images/AC-roofair.png height=300 Google Image Roy ken Man- I drew that back in 2002, now it's all over :) FWIW, I usually install countersunk screws back in the screw holes when removing a vent, but each install is different. I believe Dometic units still come with foam spacer blocks on the base- once the blocks hit the roof, it really won't compress any more.

RE: Dometic rm2652 climate control switch wiring

Excuse my ignorance but just a clearification. 4 posts. 2 on the "On" side and 2 on the off. On the "On" top post put 2 reds and the post below put 2 blacks. The off side each posts get a white. Bingo :)

RE: Dometic rm2652 climate control switch wiring

Two red to one pole, two black to the other pole, a white to each pole on the other side of the switch. Black is ground, red is hot, white is the heater.

RE: Adding higher, stop and turn signals on tt.

And what do you hope to accomplish with all this vs. the risk involved? Simple, making it easier for people father behind to see brake/turn signals. Same as the mandated CHMSL. Risk? What risk? You see a lot of new rigs with high mounted lights- it just adds to the safety. A rig we updated with LED lights: http://bryantrv.com/images/temp/rvnet/raysprotail.jpg

RE: Unplug or Kill Generator first?

I believe some newer Onan models cut power as soon as the stop switch is pushed, but many older gensets would try to maintain voltage while stopping- stressing, and eventually burning out the voltage regulator.

RE: Adding higher, stop and turn signals on tt.

Part 2 of the law. They have to be level. They must also be spaced as far apart as practical and no higher than the 72 inches. One above the other is not level. In short what the OP proposes doing is not legal in TX, which is where he says he lives. All the OP has to do is not hook up the tail light part- turn signals and stop lamps are under no such requirement. Of course, that would be stupid, but it's not the only stupid law in Texas.

RE: Propane tank pigtail rupture

The only time I have ever seen what looked like a rupture was when the hose was chewed by a squirrel. Usually, they just leak.
