RE: Mascerators

Our new mh came with one built in for dumping the gray tank. Not sure I like it. We go to some areas where there are no hook ups and are alowed to let the gray tank to drain on the ground. Is there a way for it to drain without the m-punp ?

RE: Install 50A Outlet at Electric Meter

If you add a panel breaker or fused disconnect you then need to have 4 wires in each conduit to where ever they are feeding. Assuming it is 120/240 volt. 2 hots 1 neutral 1 ground Even through the neutral and ground are one and the same at the meter and first disconnect, they are separated after there. If you add just one breaker and receiptal then the rest can remain as they are. Most likely 3 wires. Dusty

RE: Need to add a 110v electrical outlet

First you need to be sure that the wall is deep enough to for the box that the receiptal will be mounted in, the size of box depends on size of wire and how many wires and devices. Also be sure that you can get a cable from the breaker box/panel to where you want to install the receiptal. PM me if you want and I'll try to help. Dusty

RE: Just ordered the Progressive Dynamics PD4655V

RE: Propane steak saver adapter not legal in Canada?

QUESTION, Do those nonrefillable adaptors work now that the 20 lb. tanks have auto shut off when filling? How do you get liquid LP out of a 20 pounder? Dusty

RE: Made a new storage area using Coroplast

Interesting, how's it holding up? I've made a small box out of coroplast. And drilled all the way through the first layer then 1/2 way through the 2nd. Then filled the holes with construction adhesive. To fasten the corners together. Very well, thanks. Dusty

RE: Adding two new 6 volts to existing six volts

This is what I did on a 12 volt system. Our mh had 1-12 vlot battery maybe 2 years old. I added 1-12 volt battery but put a switch on each battery, then only used 1 battery at a time. I alternated them using one at a time for a day, when we were dry camping, and switched them each morning. We didn't have a generator, and they would last about half a week. So in the middle of the week I would turn them both on and we go sight seeing with the mh to charge them up for the last half of the week. We did this for several years.

RE: Walk around while Class C in motion?

As a first responder, I would say it all depends on how much you like the person who is going to unbuckle and walk around in a moving vehicle...There is a big difference in road conditions in different parts of the country. Out here in the midwest you can travel for miles in wide open space with clear visibility of both sides of the road. The interstates have fences on both sides to keep the deer off the interstate. These factors all have to be considered whether it is safe to stand up or walk around. Probably the only unexpected driving correction would be a total tire failure. What kind of fences do they have that will keep the deer off the interstate ?

RE: Airing up tires with compressor

It's been maybe 15 years but I've found 12 volt compressors that you can set the turn off pressure, and walk away while the tire is filling, and go back when it turns off. I've used and it works. Dusty

RE: Front door locks

We have a new Itasca. For a while when we would open it from the outside it would only open start to unlatch like it was a double latch. I would have to put my shoulder into it to close it back up then pull the latch quickly and it would open. Then it got to the point where you could not open it from the outside. I took the inside plate off and found a piece of white plastic broken that was causing the problem. I got the whole latch replaced under warranty. The new one looks just like the old one, I wounder how long the new one will last ? Dusty

RE: turbo-flow exhust fan

Thanks downtheroad, but I wish I could find one of the old ones like I used to have. Dusty

turbo-flow exhust fan

Back in '03 or '04 I put a Turbo Fan on our bathroom roof hatch. I think it was by MaxxAir. It was a 3 speed reversible with a t-stat. The fan was at the far end faceing almost down, so rain would not effect it, and it was quiter that way. It was a nice unit. We now have a new mh and I would like to put one in our new mh. But I can not find one, apparently they are not made any more. Anyone know where I could one, new or used. Thanks, Dusty

electric toe kick heater

In '03 or '04 I added an electric toe kick heater in our new motor home for heat while spending thee winter in Florida. There were not very many on the market, but I found one at W.W. Grainger with an optional low voltage relay, 12 volt I think. That let me use a battery operated programal thermostat. This year we have a newer motor home and again I'm looking for an electric toe kick heater with low voltage relay. There are a lot more heaters on the market, but I can't find with a low voltage relay. I would like one rated at 1,500 to 1,800 watts at 120 volts. With low voltage control. Dusty

RE: Windshield Cover for Sprinter Chassis

If you can see outside in day light, then others can see inside at night.

RE: Install Honeywell RTH111

Coleman Mach to Honeywell Coleman Red = +12vdc Blue = -12vdc Green = Fan High Gray = Fan Low White = Furnace Yellow= Compressor Honeywell Red = +12vdc -----'RC/RH' Blue = -12vdc NOT USED/Tape off *Green = Fan High ----'G' *Gray = Fan Low ------'G' White = Furnace .....'W' Yellow= Compressor ,,,,'Y' *Green and Gray are used for the A/C Unit fan speed If you do not install/modify your thermostat with a mini switch to have/use both Hi-Lo fan speeds just connect GREEN (Fan High) to 'G' terminal If you wanted the fan to run on low, then you would connect the GRAY to "G". Right ? Thanks, Dusty

RE: Hot water tank drain hole is stripped

For cleaning female pipe threads you can take a short piece of pipe of the same size and cut 2 or 3 slots across the threads with a hack saw or cur off wheel in a side grinder. This will save the price of a tap.I've tried this and you might as well bite the bullet and get/borrow a tap. It doesn't work very well. I was going to say it doesn't work at all, but it may have done something, just couldn't tell. Worked for me. Was a totally different situation. I had a plastic electrical component, slip rings on a silo unloader, that I needed to screw a conduit fitting into, and the threads were cut way too shallow. I cut slots in a pipe and it cut the threads to where I could screw the fitting in. Dusty
