RE: Where is My Dometic Circuit Board? Northstar 850SC

It does absolutely nothing. When plugged into shore power, I turn the main switch to AC and the temp switch to max. The green/white meter beside the main switch doesn't budge. I will do what you suggest above and let you know what I find. Thanks, Jay The green meter is the flame indicator- it has nothing to do with electric operation. You will see and hear nothing when on electric, but the back of the refrigerator will get hot and the inside will get cold- after many hours.

RE: New way to charge Cell Phones

My pone is pretty run down, but lucky for me, my neighbors have huge outside speakers :)

RE: Hot Water Heater

Entropy always wins. All water is hot, unless it is at absolute zero. It really will not matter one way or the other.

RE: A/C service ports

Do roof top A/C units have service ports to add freon? No.

RE: CO - Furnace Issues

The furnace needs to be fixed or replaced, as there is no way a properly functioning furnace will produce CO in the living area- the combustion chamber is sealed.

RE: Single Kwikee electric step stopped working ??

If it's original, take a look at this blog post of mine. A few dollars in parts.

RE: AC / Supco assistance needed

You do have a start kit installed, which is the equivalent of the Supco SPP6. In my opinion, the SPP6E would be better with a genset than the stock part. You would replace the existing kit. What model is that? I haven't seen a high pressure switch in one before.

RE: Residential Refr in Class A MH -won't cool - help!

What does your dealer say about all of this? I would be letting them take care of it.

RE: Air Conditioner Problem

I would suspect cold air recirculation, but that would be an obvious thing to check for a pro. Just turn it on, let it get cold, and stick your hand up in the return to feel for cold air leaks.

RE: Duo Therm roof A/C

Thanks for naming the cable for me...... I sure hope the data cable is good......replacing it would be a real challenge. It's never the cable (almost)- it's the ends, which are standard RJ11 telephone ends- available at most home centers. Just pay attention to the polarity.

RE: Duo Therm roof A/C

That is a Comfort Control Center if it uses a "phone type" cable. Keep in mind that is *not* a phone cable though, and a phone cable will not work- it is a data cable, and the polarities are reversed. This is a data cable- http://bryantrv.com/images/temp/rvnet/datacable.png

RE: Ambient temperature effect on refer interior temp

There are two reasons high temperatures degrade refrigerator performance- the obvious lack of insulation , and the fact that at a certain point, which IIRC is around 120°, ammonia will not condense out in the condenser, which stops cooling all together. The same issue exists with compressor based units, but they draw conditioned air from the interior, generally.

RE: Generator Problems

I would suggest NOT using the rig to test the genset power- having someone mess with the throttle while powering the rig is a great way to burn up a lot of equipment. This is really basic troubleshooting- measuring voltage and frequency from the genset through any transfer switches and to the load center.

RE: Who has a Supco Hard Start on their A/C unit?

Chris can you identify the three different cylinders. I am assuming the black plastic mallory is the one I would replace. Would that be the one I would replace with the supco? I wouldn't replace it- you would be replacing the black plastic Mallory *and* the black cube it is hooked to- basically rewiring a bunch, because of the start relay you have, which is a true, 3 wire potential relay. Rather than the Supco, you just need a basic start capacitor, not a "kit". The Mallory is the start cap, the large grey is the compressor run cap, the small grey is the fan (blower) run cap.

RE: Who has a Supco Hard Start on their A/C unit?

Dave- unfortunately, you already have a true potential relay in the starting circuit, so either Supco would be a step backwards. You might swap the start capacitor with an 88-108mfd one, which will give a bit more current to start (though not too much)

RE: Who has a Supco Hard Start on their A/C unit?

Personally, I would go ahead and switch it- the SPP6 is an 88-108mfd capacitor, which will give a bit more current than the OEM, but, in my opinion, is still within acceptable parameters.

RE: Who has a Supco Hard Start on their A/C unit?

The black plastic capacitor is the start device- you can look at the value of the capacitor- if it is 88-108mfd, it is identical to the SPP6, and you will gain nothing.

RE: Ebay Digital Voltmeter- How Do They Do that

Currency manipulation.

RE: Has anybody tried one of these water heaters.

It would not be a good idea.
