RE: OVEN VALVE -no parts available

You can also try http://erepco.com- they rebuild mercury valves.

RE: Replacing Refrigerator Cooling unit

I would recommend http://rvcoolingunit.com/- David Force. I would also spring for the new Amish unit- a bit more $$ but all new, with reportedly better performance.

RE: AC (alt current) Waveforms and THD for gens and inverter

I would also like cheap vs expensive MSW inverters- a $100 2k unit against a Xantrex or Magnum .

RE: Air Conditioner Test

Complete misunderstanding of what that 20* drop is in reference too....... A properly functioning A/C unit should be able to reduce the RETURN air temp by 20* when compared to the DISCHARGE air temp. Nothing to do with OUTSIDE air temps. RV A/C Units 'recirculate' the inside air of rig. They only cool the air inside. So measure the air temp just before the evap coil and then again on the outlet side of evap coil to get an idea of how the A/C Unit is functioning. This. ^^^^^^^

RE: Dometic dm2652lbx get cold, then hot

Check venting & fans, if equipped.

RE: Cable and fuses for Magnum MSH 3012 M inverter

Magnum recommends 2/0 for a maximum run of 5', Xantrex recommends 4/0 with a maximum run of 10' (both one way). If it were mine, I would go 4/0 no matter what. I was going to say I would not go with the DLO cable, but the diameter is only .07" larger, and from Skycraft, it's only $4.31/ft compared to $4.22/ft. for welding cable- caveat is a 20 ft minimum order for the DLO, 10 for the welding cable.

RE: AC Needing Reset?

Some have a delay of several minutes- you may have just hit that delay time.

RE: Fuse block used in reverse as combiner?

The fuses would add more resistance than a ring terminal.

RE: Progressive Dynamics PD4000 operating DC without a battery?

It will be fine with no battery. The 12 volt negative really should be bonded to the frame- you don't have to use the frame as a ground but it should be attached.

RE: Onboard generator 1987 Lakeview Suncrest

I could not read the model from the pictures (I turned them in to links at the end of this- I don't know how imgur works to get the actial img url). Anyway- I have 2 service manuals- one for the 4ckm et. al. and the other for the 4.5ckm http://imgur.com/J8NFAQC http://imgur.com/Ov5DdzF http://imgur.com/9WRDt1O http://imgur.com/DHu3bGk My gut feeling is that is a really good genset, and should be easily repaired, sans any serious internal engine problems, or a shorted rotor/stator.

RE: How much should a converter put out?

Op here.... Well, I thought I was out of trouble with those readings. Aren't those good readings? Not really- though there are too many variables. None of those voltages is high enough to actually charge your battery, and non are what the converter should be putting out. I think the converter is toast, and the high voltage you are reading is with zero load, but with a load I don't think it is producing much, if any power.

RE: How much should a converter put out?

OK...here's what it is. Looks good to me. 13.45 on 120 a/c 13.76 with engine running (Alt charge line) 13.20 with generator running Those are not good voltages at all. The link that Old Biscuit posted is very worth while if you have Parallax-electronic series 7300. I saved a copy on computer and printed out a copy for "my" RV's owners manual. Couple big clues to me were that several suggested in their posting, no big deal about higher voltage. High voltage IS a big deal- it means the unit is not working correctly, which is reinforced by the voltages you measured. I predict you will shortly be buying yet another battery.

RE: How much should a converter put out?

I'm going to say a 7345 is a single voltage switch mode converter- it should work fine with no battery per Parallax Power. 18 volts is way too high. As to how much it should "put out"- it's not that kind of converter :)

RE: Video: Onan 3600 LP Generator Hunting Surging 300 to 400 Hz

Something is wrong with your meter. At 300hz the generator would be turning over 15,000 rpm and would self destruct in short order. The AC voltage rises when the RPM increases so 126 VAC indicates that the generator is probably only running slightly over 60hz. x2- that thing would be screaming.

RE: Adding booster fans to your ceiling A/C vents.

With one or 2 of these, you will virtually eliminate the flow from the other vents- In effect, you are robbing Peter to pay Paul. More than likely it will offset the 1/2 gap between my squirrel cage and the baffle in front of it. Worst case, it pulls more air through the cooling coils with the remaining vents being closed. No, worst case it pulls air in from all of the gaps you cannot see or seal in the ductwork.

RE: Adding booster fans to your ceiling A/C vents.

Keep in mind, that blower is 123 cfm. The A/C puts out 320 cfm total, so you are pulling over 1/3 of the capacity through that single vent. It will work, though 3 blowers would create a negative pressure in the ductwork, pulling 369 cfm while the air was putting in 320. With one or 2 of these, you will virtually eliminate the flow from the other vents- In effect, you are robbing Peter to pay Paul.

In Florida I have it on my RV, my car, my house, etc.

If it is an older model, I have a write up of a simple repair at http://rx4rv.com/kwikee-repair-part-2/

RE: A/C Coil Cleaner

Coleman recommends Formula 409, but you can buy non-acidic coil cleaner in most home improvement stores that are safe for epdm.
