RE: 30 or 40# lp tanks

If you don't mind the $$, I highly recommend aluminum cylinders- an Aluminum 40# weighs about the same as a 30# steel cylinder.

RE: Splicing 30A plug to 50 amp cord

yes- red and black tied together, but.... that 50 amp plug is nothing special to RVs- it's a commonly used one.

RE: Furnace Short Cycles Off and On

What strikes me is calling this model quiet- I wonder if the motor is running at full speed. I *think* if one brush is bad it will run slow.

Vintage British Rigs

A neat article in the Daily Mail http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2014/10/08/1412762163935_wps_44_Pictured_1940_s_caravan_S.jpg width=800 Lots of vintage rigs.

RE: Weber Q1400 Electric Grill

I haven't used the Weber, but I did just buy this electric grill- (I'm a cheapskate :) ) I like it. Electric doesn't get as hot as gas, but you still get the grilled flavor, though purists will scoff.

RE: trailer blown off jack stand

Don't worry about it- every day towing puts far more stress than falling off the jack stand. FWIW- 4 guys can lift the tongue of a 34' Airstream :)

RE: RV tech. help on what sealant to use?

I would use butyl tape under the fitting, which is how the factory would do it.

RE: Water Heater Element

When you install it, are you making sure the loop winds up vertical, and not horizontal? OK Chris, I will play. HOW and WHY would that be a factor? How would you make sure it is either? Unless it is a OLD 4 bolt in system, it would be difficult to thread it in and make sure of the orientation. I would suspect they are NOT using Atwood parts. Doug Doug, that's how I have been taught by the factory training. If you look at the element, you will see it is indexed by the writing- easy to align it correctly. If the loop is korizontal, trash short the element.

RE: Need a new water pump

A cheat way to prime the pump- assuming water flow might clear the trash- is to use a wet dry vac on a faucet.

RE: Can propane Extend-a-stay tank add to main tank?

I actually refill through the outlet of the tank- I remove the regulator and use the POL there with the double headed hose- just two standard old style pigtails hooked together with an inverted flair coupler. With the cylinder above the tank you can hear the liquid flowing.

RE: Small opening for slider

I agree that making one would be the ticket- either undermount or side mount slides would work, full extension would be best. Just build a platform for the cooler.

RE: Can propane Extend-a-stay tank add to main tank?

Nope- it takes liquid flow to really amount to anything. You can fill using a cylinder turned upside down and a double ended POL hose, but even that is slow.

RE: What exactly does "Second AC Prep" mean

Should be close to plug and play- wiring in place, just not hooked up.
Chris Bryant 01/12/17 05:57am Tech Issues
RE: Electrical question: 2 fuses operate together in parallel?

I would look closely at the wiring to the awning, which was likely added aftermarket- someone wired something wrong.

RE: One 110 outlet reading low

Saying the Sureguard "Knocked you off" means nothing to me- a GFI can trip due to a downstream fault, but "knocked off" gives no information.

RE: 100# Propane Cylinder Transport

I have 3 100# tanks. I fill them myself from my 500 gal home tank. It won't hurt anything to haul them lying down, I do it all the time, just try to keep them from rolling around. Really, really bad advice. Layed down, the relief valve is under the liquid, and will not work correctly. Just don't do it, period.

RE: One 110 outlet reading low

Measure the voltage at the mwave breaker. If its low there, go,further, if it's fine, replace the outlet.

RE: Electric heater recommendation

Keep in mind all electric heaters out out the same amount of heat per watt- all are ~100 percent efficient I also do not like running a heater off the stock RV outlet, and prefer to install a high quality dedicated one.
