RE: 5.5 Onan, sounds like a machine gun when I hit the starter.

Have a 13.78 volt at the ginny, and the case is screwed to the MH chassis. Keep in mind the genset is isolated by rubber mounts inside the case- the only ground is a ground strap (and the 120 volt ground)

Make sure the ground strap to the genset is OK. I like to hook a jumper cable to the frame and genset just to make sure.

RE: Water Heater Issues!

If it is an Atwood, the ECO could be bad, as it is between the board and valve. That's pretty obvious looking at it.

RE: Airxcel seems to take forever to cool park model

Of course, if you are in Minnesota you should not need as much cooling capacity as we do in Sarasota, Fl. :)

RE: Airxcel seems to take forever to cool park model

Our 12x40 Park Model has a 2 ton unit- ~24,000 btu, so I don't think you have enough capacity for that trailer.

RE: Cost of propane vs gas generator.

Personally, I would use the on board Onan just for quick rest stops, and the gas model for extended stays.

RE: Adding electric Drain Valve to fresh water drain

The handle should unscrew and will have standard 1/4-20 threads- a coupling nut and threaded rod makes an extension pretty easy- I make it pretty with a length of 1/4" id steel line on the outside of the rod. Of course, the electric valve exiting the side, with a drivers seat remote would work as well :)

RE: Adding electric Drain Valve to fresh water drain

That's not a good orientation for a Drianmaster- the motor needs to be above the liquid.

Here's his (Tim Berners-Lee) browser- I believe it is on a Next system: http://bryantrv.com/images/tims_editor.jpeg width=600

RE: A warning if you've got a Camco 50 amp replacement male plug

I would have to say this applies to any brand connector- make sure the strain relief is tight.

RE: A/C again!!!!

90%- if it froze up, it is an installation issue.

RE: Refrigerator Electrical Problem

The refrigerator heating element is bad- replace it.

RE: Roof Air Blows Warm When Moving

Hey- it's been a while- good to "see" you. That's an odd one- note that Dometic changed the air flow with the BriskAir II- I don't remember which was which, but one sucks, the other blows :) It would be good to see if the compressor is still running, and cycling off because it cannot dump the heat outside, or if outside hot air is being sucked in somewhere- or something else...

RE: 12 Volt freezer? Is this an option?

Wouldn't it be neat if a manufacturer used vacuum panels instead of regular insulation? A half inch of vacuum insulates better than a foot thick wall of foam. Keep dreaming...sigh... Dometic (and I *think* Norcold) make vacuum insulated gas/electric models- they get an extra foot or so inside. When the Dometic recall first came out, I went to Atlanta to a class to learn what was involved. I had to point out to them that it was probably a bad idea to mount a plate with screws in to the body of these models :)

RE: 12 Volt freezer? Is this an option?

Whynter is another brand of portable- most will operate as either/or refrigerator / freezer.

RE: Dometic Fridge Light? Problem

We need a model number. IIRC, the RM8000 series use a magnetic reed switch through the board, other models use a plain switch.

RE: Wiring one air conditioner to use 20 amp outlet

The simplest way is to go to the first junction box out of the genset, determine which set of leads power the rear air, and install a pigtail with male and female connectors on them- leave them plugged together for genset power, plug it in to a cord for shore power. This does mean you are relying on the park breaker for circuit protection, and there is a kit out there that includes a breaker (someone will come up with the name).

RE: Large Tesla Battery

Solar power is now the cheapest there is- the trick is storage. I have 2 favorites- pulling carbon from the air and turning it in to fuel, the other is just making hydrogen. The later is current technology, former, cutting edge.
