RE: Where did you get your Electrical knowledge?

Bult crystal sets in the early '70's- I could see the WWV antenna farm out my bedroom window, and could receive the time signal on my teeth :) Then built a PAiA 2700 synthesizer in '74-75. Dropped out of college (music performance major) to go on the road playing. Wound up doing concert lighting and sound for years on the road- then attended Full Sail recording school, and of course, that led to repairing RVs. :)

RE: Fuse converter, or not?

The switchmode converters are inherently output limited, so they do not need output fuses. Theoretically, you can short the output with no harm- the converter just shuts off...... of course, I wouldn't really try it.

RE: Butyl tape / sealant / or both?

I always use butyl. and use caulk just for appearance.

RE: Checking 12V from outside the rig

I would get a really cheap volt meter- the kind with lights instead of numbers- unhook all but the over 13 volts light. If the light is on, it's charging, if it's off, it isn't, but the battery will still be OK.

RE: Locked Out Of Computer!

Did you set the password for the Administrator account, or your account? If you set it for your account, try logging in as administrator, and leave the password field blank.

RE: Your Wish List for RV Manufacturers

One that doesn't leak.

RE: Mud dauber/wasp screens

I've also stood by and watched mud daubers go right through the screens, and cleaned plenty of insect nests out of screen equipped appliances.

RE: Re&Re underbelly cover

I would use thread cutting machine screws, not sheet metal drill point screws.

RE: water pressure reducer

You can also go to Lowes and pay $41 for a Watts 3/4 inch whole house regulator. Add a few fittings and you are set.

RE: Dometic 2652 RBX Not Properly Vented In Tango Trailer

I see Dometic paying a bunch of money for something that the first tech should have easily caught Venting and installation is the first thing to check.

RE: Converter breaker labelling

Receptacle- some outlet will be on this breaker, as well.

RE: Propane Issues? Heat/Water/Stove/Refrig Possible Cause

George Goble famously used liquid oxygen https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UjPxDOEdsX8

RE: Suburban furnace min. air return grill size?

I have it in this pdf file naturally, the specs are on a page I scanned upside down, but for all but the over 40k btu/hr models it is 55 square inches. It gives ducting, as well. That is for older models, but I cannot imagine they have changed that much.

RE: Windows 8.1 Speed

People often think a new OS is much faster than an old one- simply because the old OS has become bloated with leftover detritus- Windows with its registry is especially bad, but every OS suffers to some extent.

Atwood makes the 8500 with no door- it's the 8500IVLD (8500 series 4, less door). To the matter at hand- you will have to remove the furnace to install the door anyway, so you might as well just pull it and fix it. If you want to try a quick and dirty fix- try putting a shop vacuum on the exhaust outlet, see if you get any junk out of it.

RE: How does a macerator toilet work?

They are obviously not the same. The sewer macerator is very slow but this macerator toilet acts like a home toilet. When you flush the toilet, it moves the bowl contents out quickly and quietly. I believe they are more alike than you think- the toilet is dealing with *far* less 'material' than pumping out the whole tank, plus the discharge is likely to be larger for the toilet- I would bet 1 1/2".

RE: Norcold frig light question

If you use blue LEDs you can get an imagined 10 degree drop in interior temps :)

RE: Norcold frig light question

On that model the switch is a magnetic reed switch, with a magnet in the door, and the switch is in the control panel. The light is actually controlled by the main circuit board, though.

RE: Furnace not working. Help Please.

I would bet on an insect nest blocking the blower- regardless, the unit needs to come out and be bench tested.

RE: Drilling P.C. Boards (tips solicited)

I really like higher wattage temperature controlled irons. That's how you get a fast warmup.
