RE: Hot water tank plug never seen one like this

I would leave it and save for a new tank.

RE: Liquid Rubber instead of Liquid RV Roof?

Chris, I've read a lot of people have no issue painting with a latex based paint. It * might* work OK, but just about every job I have seen peeled off after about a year.

RE: Liquid Rubber instead of Liquid RV Roof?

Paint will not stick to the liquid rubber, which is EPDM. You will have to top coat it with a primer and topcoat made for EPDM, which may eat up the savings.

RE: After oil change tapping noise

Single overhead cam applies to each head separately. There can be a V6 with one cam per head (SOHC) or two cams (DOHC). Or no cam in the head for that matter. Marketing of course could have different names for all this... OK. Do you know of any such motors off hand? Pretty much all of them, less the Mazda RX8. Read what he wrote.

RE: Dometic Refrigerators

A comment (or two). You can see the actual lawsuit here (a pdf file). It's pretty interesting that in the lawsuit they use an illustration lifted from my website- you can see the picture on this snapshot from 2001 (!) on archive.org- https://web.archive.org/web/20010710024946/http://www.bryantrv.com/reefer.html Notice my text references the numbers I put in the picture. There are some real problems with the lawsuit, which sounds like a "throw it all at the wall and see what sticks" type of thing.

RE: ? for electric/electronic experts.

Sounds like a floating neutral. You might measure 60 volts between neutral and ground, and 60 volts between hot and ground.

RE: Refrig LP Gas 'Flame' indicator not working?

I don't have a service manual as such for that, but if you don't have it the owners manual is at http://bryantrv.com/docs2/docs/operating/rm2333.pdf You might pull it out and check for loose wires before ordering that meter, which is Dometic p/n 2955037011 Shop around for that, the cheapest price I saw was in the $55 range- which is a good price (less than I pay from Dometic). Adventure RV and Dyers had good priced.

RE: Refrig LP Gas 'Flame' indicator not working?

That flame indicator is just a millivolts meter hooked to the output of the thermocouple. Give me a model and product number and I can get a part number.

RE: Programming duotherm thermostat

Here you go- http://bryantrv.com/docs2/docs/operating/5_Button_Comfort_Control_Operation_Manual_3108664.040.pdf Press zone to switch zones, then press mode to make that zone operate in whatever mode you wish. If the new zone is in a different mode, it will look like it is switching modes. Keep in mind each zone also has its own set point, so you also have to set each zones temperature.

RE: Programming duotherm thermostat

Which Thermostat do you have? They made the multi zone Comfort Control Center in 4 button, 5 button and 10(12) button versions. All of these use separate zones- you must set each zone to do what ever you want it to, they will never operate completely in tandem, as they will have separate temperature sensors. You should be able to set zone 1 to cool, then switch to zone 2 and set it on cool.

RE: Update dash air

In a lot of cases, the generator with roof air does fine, pretty much being a wash as far as fuel use. On the other hand, driving in to the sun in Texas in August with that big windshield, you might need both.

RE: Keys! Really People?

We only have two keys for our Jayco, after matching the main door, bathroom door, and the pass through to the outdoor kitchen. Only reason we still have a 751 key is for the outdoor shower. The cyclinder was to short to swap it out. All thanks to Rv Locks and More!! http://www.rvlocksandmore.com/

RE: Awesome Tool

Changing the subject a bit, I was installing a new thermostat on my truck last week, didn't have a torque spec for the thermostat housing, and found http://www.torkspec.com/torkspec.aspx , which lists just about every spec you need.

RE: Duo Therm Heat/AC function question

FWIW, new Dometic heat pumps are reversed, and energize the solenoid in heating, not cooling. Makes it somewhat of a pain to match control systems, and people see the new CCC2 and try to convert- barely possible with a major (warranty voiding) hack.
Chris Bryant 04/19/16 06:46pm Tech Issues
RE: Duo Therm Heat/AC function question

If it is indicating cool mode, but heating, odds are the reversing valve solenoid is burned out. Fairly common on those units. Cheap and easy fix, though there were two versions of the coils, one with attached leads, the other with terminals. http://bryantrv.com/images/temp/rvnet/dometichpsolenoid.jpg

Positive energy headed his way. Keep us informed, if you hear anyhting.

RE: Low Pressure Propane not Working

There are a couple of different low pressure quick connectors- I wonder if you have two non matching, and the grill will not trip the shutoff.
Chris Bryant 04/19/16 04:13am Tech Issues
RE: Drain master hose

The connectors are cam type that are used by commercial septic pumpers, and the hoses are pretty heavy. It's a very nice system, but it is not compatible with the standard connectors used today.

RE: Atwood Air Command AC, anyone using?

You may be confusing two products- Atwood markets the Air Command, a unit made by an Australian company that has been long in the market (plus Atwood is now owned by Dometic). The Advent brand name was bought and put on a Chinese built DuoTherm clone. I just installed 2 of the 15k btu Atwood units, and so far they are very nice- low power draw, large capacity, nice thermostat. The 15k btu units are all heat pumps, operating down to ~45 f.

I'm amazed that C Crane is down to a single AM antenna, but.. http://www.ccrane.com/Antennas/Terk-AM-Advantage
