RE: ONAN 5000 EMERALD PLUS GENERATOR HELP

Actually, it will matter, though it shouldn't hurt anything. On the 5kw, I believe one breaker is a 20 amp, the other a 30 amp. The 20 should typically just feed the rear air conditioner, the 30 will feed the rest of the coach. You just want to make sure the whole coach is being fed from the 30. his unit is only 40 amp according to the tag. so, should be 20/20. according to page 41 of the service manual. I can almost guarantee it is 30/20- simply because this model was meant to power the rig plus a second air conditioner- the output breakers actually have a capacity above the genset itself. The second circuit with only the a/c will have a load of under 15 amps, so the main circuit could carry well over 20 amps, and with only a single a/c running, you would want all 30 amps available on the main line. I'm not sure about the brown wire though...

RE: Metal to glass adhesive

Yeah- when they bond the windshield to the body of a modern auto, it becomes a structural element, so that stuff is *strong*.

RE: ONAN 5000 EMERALD PLUS GENERATOR HELP

That black panel with all of the quick connects- the neutrals and ground hook to the bottom horizontal row (the circuit breakers are hooked to the top, vertical row).

RE: PEX piping question for plumbers

Yeah- never say never. I have found PEX is not at all good with UV- had a bunch of stubs sticking out underneath trailer get brittle and snap off.

RE: Duo-therm ac install info needed.

That is an analog control box, so you can use many thermostats to control it (do a search here on the forum for Hunter install). In the meantime, you can twist the tan, yellow, blue, and green wires together which will give you high-cool. I have the installation instructions for that control kit at http://bryantrv.com/docs2/docs/operating/bairducted.pdf

RE: ONAN 5000 EMERALD PLUS GENERATOR HELP

The standard output wiring will be black (hot), black /yellow stripe (hot) , white (neutral), white (neutral), green (ground) (2 neutrals due to it being a 120 volt model, not 240 volt). A model number is really needed for the final answer though.

RE: Onan 4KY Consuming Oil After Change, Breather Tube/Crankcase

I would bet on the reed valve being stuck- an easy fix: http://bryantrv.com/images/temp/rvnet/onanreedvalve.jpg.

RE: Can anyone explain this tv connection?

If you have a sat receiver with external dish, you put the receiver where that jumper is now. Without a picture, this is only a guess, but I believe joebedford is right. To use a satellite receiver, you hook the satellite antenna to the cable connection outside, then put the receiver between the two coax connectors you see. One is line in, one is line out. The jumper is so you can use the line as cable input without the satellite receiver. These ^^^^^^^

RE: Electric over hydraulic actuator

It depends on the resistance- it will draw from the higher voltage source until the resistance in the circuit gets high enough the voltage drops to equal the battery voltage. I believe you're over thinking this, and that the instructions are not very good- they spec a "25 to 40 amp" feed, and recommend using #12 wire. 25 amp would call for #10, and 40 amp would call for #8 minimum, purely on load carrying capacity (ignoring voltage drop). I wouldn't sweat it- just make sure the factory circuit is in good shape, the plug is clean, and all connection tight.

RE: Freezer works/Frig not

Depending on the model, check the LAT switch. Check the venting- check the fans, if it has them. Turn it off, then back on after about an hour.

RE: Electric over hydraulic actuator

The pump does not run all the time- only on demand. As a matter of fact, running it for more than 2 minutes will burn it out. Because of how the unit *has* to be wired, the battery will always be in the circuit, unless you install a dedicated breakaway battery, with a separate charge line. The it will always be in the circuit.

RE: Electric over hydraulic actuator

You are not really going to get much better than 20 amps through that 7 way plug- if you really insist on that, you need a separate 2 pole plug, like a 75 amp power pole connector. Personally, I believe the trailer battery/stock charging circuit will be plenty, and that the brakes themselves would give out before you run out of 12 volt power.

RE: Flickering interior lights - Problem Solved!

If it uses the Intellitec latching relay, and the relay is still "clunking" when switched, it most likely just needs cleaning. They use a grease on the contacts, which hardens with age. Easy to take apart, clean, dress the contacts and reassemble. http://bryantrv.com/images/temp/rvnet/intellitecrelay1.jpg

RE: Need help on using old D-Link router as WAP

I would configure them as repeaters, not WAPs. I would also see if I could install DD-WRT.

PEX pipe will not crack, fittings will.

RE: HWH Levellers

To be clear, you are saying they will not stay extended, not that they will not retract when cold?

RE: Thermostat/furnace eh?

Did you set the thermostat down below the room temp for a bit? I would bet the furnace went in to lockout, for whatever reason. I believe the Dino board will try again in 1 hour, then lockout for good.

RE: BE CAREFUL with your 120V side of things

BTW...If I didn't get shocked I would have never realized there was an issue with the plug and the chassis of the camper would have remained "hot"......... A nitpick, but if the chassis was hot, you have more than one problem, as the neutral and ground should be separate in an RV.

RE: 15K AC on a 20 amp plug?

20 amp circuit is what is called for, so no problem.
