RE: Oven temperature too low

OK here is a follow up on my Wedgewood oven: there is a slotted screw behind the control knob. According to the manual it is only to adjust the pilot light, not the burner. That is the temp adjustment if it is in the shaft, the pilot adjustments are to the side- under the knob, but not in the shaft. When I adjust those, I set the temp at 300, let it run for a while, then see what the actual oven temp is- then I hold the adjustment screw stationary, and turn the shaft to about what the right temp is. Easier to do than describe, but I just about guarantee that yours is adjustable.

RE: 240V split phase inverter

The Xantrex Freedom SW series will do stacking- Parallel stacking enables the Freedom SW inverter/chargers to double the AC output in inverter mode. Series stacking enables the Freedom SW inverter/chargers to generate 120/240 V split phase output┬▓ ┬▓ AC source must be split phase, requires Stacking Cable (part# 808-9005)

RE: Heavy equipment going electric instead of diesel.

Just a simple country boy here and I have a question on electric vehicles. If everyone switched over to electric how would people in some areas of the country charge them considering that right now during high demand days some areas of our country have had rolling blackouts and brownouts. It would seem to me if everyone in those areas started charging eclectic vehicles daily then every day would become a high demand days and the current high demand days would go off the chart. Charge at night.

RE: Help with Dometic Digital Thermostat

Yes, the OLD model is gone. It is called the Comfort Touch now, but still uses the 3 wires and is compatible with the old control boards. Doug Thanks, Doug- the CT comes up on my eDometic catalog, but it doesn't give me a chance to order one. Hopefully they will be a bit more user friendly.

RE: Help with Dometic Digital Thermostat

Interestingly enough, I sold one of those thermostats out of a kit I had, just went to replace it, and the Dometic website is telling me it's obsolete, and they have none. The also give no part numbers for the new CT. I might actually have to talk to someone on the phone :)

RE: Atwood water heater problem

Make sure the small round flame spreader has not broken off the end of the burner. This happens fairly often, and the lp doesn't really hit the electrodes then.

RE: Are RVs delivered winterized in cold environments?

Buying that rig, it seems a bit greedy to charge for winterizing- I would have thought they could throw it in. They don't give those things away.

RE: Help with Dometic Digital Thermostat

The furnace hookup is a simple relay- two blue wires at the control box. One wire needs a 12 volt feed, turning the furnace on simply closes that relay. Here's how to put it in diagnostic mode: http://bryantrv.com/docs2/docs/singlezonediag.pdf

RE: Exterior Painting of Motorhome

I've seen an older motorhome (early 80's, aluminum "mesa" siding) painted by roller with Sherwin Williams A100- actually looked pretty good from 20 feet.

RE: Heavy equipment going electric instead of diesel.

Power, no matter what form aint cheap. What these eco groups and the electric vehicle wannabees all fail to address is, where is all this electricity coming from? Thats right, its coming from coal,nuclear, and hydroelectric sources. All polluters in the eyes of the eco crowd. So, whats the long term solution? I have no clue, but electric vehicles is probably not it when you factor in disposal costs for all those batteries, not counting the energy costs to product them in the first place. Solar and wind are now cheaper than just about anything other than hydro. Batteries are simply recycled, not disposed of.

Netflix to allow downloads

No link, but it's all over the news, and the Netflix app should update and have a download button. You are limited to the number you can have at once.

RE: Heavy equipment going electric instead of diesel.

Really truly check out the link I gave- they are introducing their tractor tomorrow. Uses a hydrogen fuel cell giving around a thousand mile range, with 15 minute fillup. 1,000 HP (software limited due to tire limitations), 2,000 ft/lb torque. Zero emissions. They have like $2B (as in billion) in preorders. https://nikolamotor.com/

RE: Suburban SW6DE Water Heater 120VAC Side

If you read line voltage on both sides of the element, you have an open neutral- check it back to the box.

RE: Megawatt Mod News Zot...

Faderlube (deoxit MCL, or Moving Contact Lubricant) should ALWAYS be used on potentiometers- red deoxit will destroy a pot over time.

It will be here before you know it- it virtually has to be, if we have the slightest hope of still having a civilization a hundred years from now.

RE: Electrical issue

The way I do it is to brush the negative post with the cable- get a spark- immediately do it again. If it's a load, you will get sparks both time- a capacitor charging, you only get a spark the first time.

RE: Gas lines

3/8" refrigeration grade copper is standard with 45 degree single or double flare. For a valve, look for an AGA certification, it will be listed for gas. The existing unit should already have a flared end on the supply line, so I would buy the valve with 3/8 flare connections, then add a new length of copper to the new water heater.

RE: Changed hot water heater, now, no hot water.

Note that the check valve is only needed to use the bypass- for normal operation, a simple pipe nipple, or the check valve with the guts removed, will work fine.
