RE: Newbie Awning Question

Are the arms the same length? Sometimes a short and long arm will be used to fit odd situations, and fifth wheels.

RE: Finally Found A 48-SMD 12-Volt Panel

Just to be clear- the panels I pictured are not the 10 watt and up models- they use a honeycomb base, much larger. The ones pictured are likely just a couple of watts. On edit- I wish I could find those with the honeycomb base, they looked pretty good, but most do seem under-heat sinked.

RE: Finally Found A 48-SMD 12-Volt Panel

I'm waiting for someone to try the COB panel lights, which should do a much better job of thermal management, with the chips being more directly mounted to the aluminum body. http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/MTIwMFgxNjAw/$(KGrHqZ,!ioFBQfJNZ1RBQlJl7BWw!~~60_57.JPG height=350 width=450 Not real easy to find, but I've seen them over 10 watts for a small panel- a lot of light (and crazy cool color temps- over 7K)

RE: Hydraulic Problem

it should use ATF. Are you sure Lippert has nothing on your system? If you go to http://lci1.com/support-center, click on the slide setup you have, and you will get a tabbed page, with tabs for technical info, manuals, faq, etc. The manuals will give the service manuals.

RE: Dometic A/C glitch

I would try rebooting it- turn the system off, press and hold +, press and hold on/off mode for 3 seconds. Screen should read -- , release. Press On/Off to turn off. Should be back at factory settings.

RE: Leveling systems - HWH and then there's ???

There is also BigFoot and Power Gear, but IHMO, HWH is the best. Their customer service is frustrating- they always run way behind, but when they do get to you, they are great. It's driven me crazy for years now. If you want to DIY, their troubleshooting guides are spot on.

RE: How do I hook a 3 pin connector to a 4 pin?

Ok so your camper has no tail lights. You probably have ground, running lights and +12v for interior lights. You'll have to wire up something custom from the 7-way on the truck or just put a 7-way on the camper. Be sure to figure out what each does before hooking them up. x3

RE: Norcold N821 takes FOREVER to get to cool temps

Slicing and dicing with Occam's razor, testing the board on 120 volt is pretty easy- the only part of the board that can cause that malfunction is really the relay contacts being bad, and cutting the power going to the element. They also have to be *not too bad*, or the board would detect the error, as it monitors both voltage and current to the element. So- to test the relay, turn it on Elec., make sure it is calling for cooling, measure the voltage at the board input and output. If they are the same, the board is good. If they are different, the board is bad (at least the relay is bad). While there could be spooky software glitches, the majority of them would have external causes- rf interference and/or dirty DC power.

RE: How do I hook a 3 pin connector to a 4 pin?

I would bet that the plug has turn signal/brake lights and running lights, but no ground- at least that's what the colors are. (they did sometimes rely on the ball to ground. You could try buying a four wire plug for the trailer, hook color to color, adding the white ground to the frame.

RE: How can I find the right sized struts to lift van hood?

My ignorance may be showing, but I've never seen a van with gas struts on the hood, though that doesn't really mean anything. I would wonder if there is enough length in a van hood to use one, that's a wide swing, heavy load, and short distance front to back to fit a strut. BTW, if you want to search, they are called gas springs.

RE: Question about 6k Generator

All the units Im looking at have induction cook top, Not sure about the inverter but I can ask. KC In that case, go for the 8k, definitely

RE: Sewer connection rework project.

If it's possible to rotate that assembly just a bit, you can grind the tabs of the existing outlet, glue a couple of 22.5 elbows and extend it out.

RE: Time to fix the delamination

if you go to http://winnebagoind.com/product-resources/product-information and put in your year and model, you will find a "sealant callout sheet" that tells what Winnebago recommends. They tend to use a lot of urethane sealants.

RE: Norcold N821 takes FOREVER to get to cool temps

You can try that, but in your first post you said: Not a gas problem, or an electric supply problem - they both have the same result. Do what you want, but I would change the thermistor before the board.

RE: Norcold N821 takes FOREVER to get to cool temps

Do as Doug suggested, and replace the thermistor. OK, I'll bite. Why replace the thermistor? I can easily control the fridge temp using the refrigerator controls. If I set it to 9, it's too cold. If I reduce it to 7, it warms a bit; if I set it to 5 it's warmer yet. The thermistor MUST be working or the refrigerator would not respond to the change in the control setting. If the refrigerator senses the changes, the thermistor must be working right?? Please explain WHY you think the thermistor needs to be changed. Because the resistance can be intermittent (non-linear and not accurate), they fail far more often than the boards, and they are a fraction of the cost of a new board. You also said that it made no difference running on LP or AC, which would point to a fault external to the board.

RE: Damaged Ball

I hate to mention it, but I've put hundreds of thousands of miles on a hitch ball...... not using any grease! Didn't wear the ball, didn't wear the coupler, didn't put grease on my clothes when I walked by, did make it a bit harder to slip on to the ball, if not perfectly lined up.

RE: One 50Mv 500A shunt, two ammeters?

Remember, these meters are just (milli)volt meters. They certainly should have a high enough impedance that 2 won't make a difference- they should put no load on the shunt. If I can measure a current draw using a fuse as a shunt, it should be easy.

RE: Battery Solution

I just paid $225 each for a pair of Full River 6 volt AGM- GC2 sized, and get the G31 12 volt 125 ah models for about the same. Keep in mind Full River makes Rolls Surette AGM batteries.
