RE: Thermistor for Dometic RM2652 Refrigerator

All of the refrigerator thermistors are basically interchangeable other than length- the resistance values are the same. Standard replacement would be Dometic p/n 3307872.006 which is a kit with both ends and scotchlocks.

RE: Wiring second Ac in a CC 36ckts.

You can tape them off, 12 volt power is sent through the data cable.

RE: Air Conditioner Thermostat question

Thanks again, Doug. Quick last(?) question - is it a plug-and-pray swap (same wire from roof to thermostat), or needs different wire? It will use the same wiring.

RE: Testing my A/C

Just keep an eye on the voltage.

RE: Wiring second Ac in a CC 36ckts.

The CCC 2 uses standard rj11 cable and connectors, but wired for data (flipped ends). http://bryantrv.com/images/temp/rvnet/datacable.png All programming is done on the board in the new unit, setting it to zone 2 heat pump, then reinitialize the CCC 2.

RE: New Email Client

I have an over 100 mb/sec connection, but I deal with a LOT of email. When I bought this new computer and installed a new OS on it I tried using the web based gmail interface for a few weeks- took way too much time- when you get a couple hundred emails a day a few seconds lag on each adds up.Something must be wrong with the OS or your actual connect speed. My gmail at 25mb (measured) opens new gmail almost before the mouse button is up. Yeah- I can open them fast enough, but I have to deal with them then- every action has a delay, plus dealing with filters is much more cumbersome. I've dealt with gmail on multiple devices and OS's, and webmail simply is not as easy to work with as local if you are dealing with a large amount. The only reason I let gmail handle my domain email is spam filtering- hundreds daily from an address that has been public for 16 years now- google handles it quite well so far.

RE: Exterior repair cost

Sounds way high if it is a fiberglass repair. If an aluminum panel must be replaced, it's probably a good quote. For fiberglass, find a boat place.

Right now I am using Thunderbird IMAP with gMail- I still prefer pop, but it's better than web.

RE: heater fan on today the switch was set to AC

The thermostat cannot control just the furnace blower- the fan auto/hi/low setting affects the air conditioner blower during furnace operation, but the OP has the furnace blower running. It pretty much has to be the fan control board in the furnace- if the thermostat were calling for heat, the burner would come on as well as the blower, but blower only points to furnace board.

RE: Fastest RV

I may have missed it in the article. What is its top speed? I believe they hit 120 in 2013, and are going for faster this time. There are some videos of the 2013 run.

Fastest RV

Sorry if this has been posted- http://www.gmclsr.com/ "Worlds Fastest motorhome"- a bit of the specs: Dyno Tested 700 HP @ 6,000 RPM 1977 GMC Kingsley Motorhome (26ft) Fuel Injected Chevy 502 Ram Jet Motor NX Wet Nitrous System (125 Shot) Also raising money for Charcot Marie Tooth Disease (CMT), which I had never heard of. https://static.wixstatic.com/media/91acff_d4ef9c22c2164b9eaabc73ad6b91d9eb~mv2.jpg/v1/fill/w_516,h_287,al_c,q_80,usm_0.66_1.00_0.01/91acff_d4ef9c22c2164b9eaabc73ad6b91d9eb~mv2.jpg

RE: Dometic Americana refrigerator

I'm getting a slow trickle of info- I would suspect it will be pretty efficient, it reportedly uses a variable speed DC compressor, though no power specs. http://www.dometic.com/USA/New-Products/New-RV-Products/americana-dmc/

RE: Windows 7 - No More Choosing Updates

I don't use my Copy of Windows 7 any more, so I thought it alright to let it update- it just told me the free Win10 update is over, no updates available. That is on a virtual machine- I have an install on a Laptop that is dual boot, but have not put aside the time needed to do the update and sort out the dual boot again.

RE: 13.5K BTU vs 15.0K BTU Air Conditioners -- HOW????

The unit is internally recirculating the same air over and over to achieve those low temps.Does that mean that if my a/c cools the room to 75F, it's now pumping out 35F air? No, because the freeze sensor will shut the compressor down before it gets that cold- 35 degree air temp translates to below freezing coil temp- without the sensor, the coils would just freeze.

RE: Loud Noise then Breaker trips when running Airconditioner

Any chance of getting a picture of this thing?

RE: Condensate Drain for Dometic Refrigerator

"I would question the installation if you have room to reach up and replace it- specs call for a maximum of 1" clearance at the back." I'm really not sure what you mean by "I would question the installation. . . . " This isn't a science of rockets, it just drains water from the inside of the refrigerator. Trust me, I did it. Sorry- what they said- I question the original installation of the refrigerator, not what you did. As others have said, the refrigerator should have no more than 1 inch of clearance at the back- not enough to reach up and replace the drain tube. Sorry for the confusion.

RE: 13.5K BTU vs 15.0K BTU Air Conditioners -- HOW????

So far neither of those insulted experts have posted their own readings. While I'm sure they have better things to do, how is it that they found the time to hurl insults? "Loose flap" would have been my guess also, and I'm no expert. But at the same time, NO ONE but Oldman has posted the temps going in and coming out of their ACs. How many reading do you need? Do you want readings from only properly operating units or do you want them from defective units as well? I can go dig in 25 years of work orders to find some- I can guarantee that I never let an air conditioner leave here with split temperatures that large, because- for around the fifth or sixth time in the last week- the large split temperatures are because there is a leak between the supply and return, so the return air is actually much colder than the thermometer is reading. Seal up the leaks, clean the filter and you will see the more normal temperatures, and the unit will cool the rig much better. FWIW, Doug and I have records giving outside temperature, inside temperature, ac voltage, current draw of the compressor, current draw of the fan motor and split temp after 30 minutes of operation (I do 30 because of the extreme humidity- it takes a lot of btus to dry the air, so I normally get a very small split for the first 15 minutes or so). These figures are all required for warranty work, so it's not like it is something we never have done before. Does this satisfy your requirements?

RE: Plug into 110 = no power plug into generator = power

Or bad adapter.
