RE: Suburban SF-30 Furnace - Current draw

I really don't think you will save that much current- the motor should draw ~6 amps, and it is moving 300 cfm room air plus combustion air- that's a lot of work.

RE: Furnace burner cycling during normal operation

You should be able to test the power to the board while it is running- the thermostat, sail switch and limit switch can all cause this problem- and it can be a combination, as each item can cause a small drop in the supply voltage to the board. If the voltage at the board stays above 11.5 volts, and the board still cycles, it has to be the flame sensor, which could be a burner/orifice , electrode, LP pressure, or lead problem.

RE: Need help with my sketchy battery cable situation

That small box was most likely a breakaway switch for the trailer brakes.

RE: 50 amp Volt/Amp Meter W/O EXT Shunt ?

I don't know I could get it hooked up- Thin red wire: power supply input anode (DC 4.5-30V) Thin black wire: power supply input cathode (DC 4.5-30V) Thick red wire: measure positive voltage input (voltage displayed between thick black wire and it is the voltage displayed on meter head.) Thick black: measure current flow (between thick black wire and thin black wire is communal land, it is connected.) (measure negative voltage input) Thick yellow wire: measure current inflow (connect with load cathode and the load positive pole connects with thick red wire.) Kind of confusing, in a machine translated way. Also- read the comments- all 8 units came with NO shunt resistor on board - CAN NOT measure Current. i assume all comments above are fake beware!

RE: Most secure email account for RVing & traveling

Secure communications is pretty easy actually- I can give my pgp signature and anyone could send me a message using it which would take even the NSA quite a while to crack.

RE: Dometic RM1350MIMX no electric

I have a 2013 RM1350 that has stopped running on AC, runs fine on LP. I checked the outlet and have power. Did a diagnostic test that is in the manual and when I do Test 3 "Turn AC heater on" I get no reading. When I do test 4 "D+ status alternator voltage" I get no reading. Everything else tests fine. Anybody have any ideas. When you say you get "no reading" on test 3, what do you mean- you get no voltage on the heater terminals, or the display is blank? If the display is blank, check the fuse on the board. On the D+ test, the engine needs to be running to give a display of O N, and the D+ terminal needs to be hooked up (this is for the auto door lock, and not on every 1350).

RE: Most secure email account for RVing & traveling

If often using public access, you might look in to a good Virtual Private Network service. If you *really* want secure email, there are providers like RiseUp, but the NSA doesn't like it :)

RE: Freightliner part - unavailable

It would help if you let people know where you are located. How can we recommend a repair place if we don't know where you are. Good luck, John Repair service place isn't my problem. I've got all kinds of repair services around here. The problem is they can't find another pump to repair it with. Nobody has one. I just need a place that has a pump to fit my rig in case I need one when they tear into the defective one and find that a seal kit won't fix it. They probably do not have one because everyone rebuilds rather than replaces. If you are that paranoid about being stuck, my only suggestion is find a wrecked rig, buy the pump, have *that* pump rebuilt (after all, cannot trust a used part). Or order a new one and wait.

RE: Front Dometic A/C just ticks when I turn it on.

Did you check the breakers on the generators itself? Is yours a 30 or 50 amp service coach? Any power management devices?

RE: kwikee step issues

The new ones work differently than they used to- the door switch is reversed- yours is normally closed, the new requires a normally open one- a new switch should have been included in the kit. As well the main "power" switch works more or less backwards.

RE: Dometic buys Atwood

I have a much better relationship with Dometic on the service side, though my Atwood road rep sales droid is good (sorry, Rex :)}. I just worry about what will happen to product overlap- will the Atwood Helium refrigerators and Australian sourced rooftop air conditioners just be orphaned? That has happened before- Atwood made a refrigerator and rooftop air conditioner in the '80's.

Dometic buys Atwood

Well, I didn't see that one coming- Dometic has signed an agreement to purchase Atwood Mobile Products for an undisclosed amount, a deal the company expects to broaden its product line and North American customer-base, the companies announced Tuesday. http://rv-pro.com/news/dometic-acquires-atwood-mobile

RE: This is scary stuff

I believe the issue is not the voice, but data connections. The fake tower could spoof a data connection easily, loading all kinds of junk on to your phone (if it is "smart").

RE: Question on how long RV Antifreeze is effective in lines

It doesn't go bad, it just gets diluted, so if you haven't drained/flushed the system, you should be good to go.

RE: What's wrong with my slideout?

Because the lights didn't dim, I would look for a bad connection in the slide circuit. Most motor/mechanical problems would dim the light considerably, through increased current draw.

RE: 1984 ford E350 chassis van terra turtle top motorhome

You should have 2 batteries- sounds like the second one is dead, it's trying to charge it and the auto reset circuit breaker is kicking in and out. Just a guess...

RE: Any resale value of roof ac with no freon?

You can get $50 all day long for a shroud in good condition- the blower motor has a like value as well. There is also a bit of copper in it for scrap.

RE: Water Heater pilot light will not stay lit?

If the thermocouple in question is like the one in the picture, it is a bulb type and the "wire" is not a wire but a copper tube. You can't crimp the tube too sharply or it won't transfer pressure to the control. It has to fit the control and be installed snuggly. What did you do with the extra 8 inches of thermocouple? That's a standard thermocouple- no pressure at all. I did a write up of this type on this RV.net blog post- pictures of an Atwood, but the Suburban is functionally identical. While the copper is a tube, it is an electrical conductor- not a pressure tube.
