RE: Fresh Water Tank Leaking

I don't believe that ABS pipe is allowed for fresh/potable/drinking water. Dusty

RE: Class C purchasing decision...

We sleep in the bed over the cab. Our mh is a 24' Itasca without full time bed on the floor, which gives us more usable floor space. We are both 72 and still able to clime into the cab over bed. We refer to it as the "Crow's Nest".

RE: Need an instruction about replacing thermostat

Home electronic programable thermostats use 24 VAC and battery back up. RV electronic programable thermostats need to run on batteries. Both types are available at big box places.

RE: loose roof ladder

Steel wool works well also. Just pack it in the hole with an awl. I would think using any type of glue or epoxy, it would be next to impossible to remove the screw latter if necessary.

RE: Is the RV Doctor wrong?

Consumers Report reported a couple of years ago that you are more likely to get contaminated bottled than city water. I don't care for the tast of bottled water.

RE: Is the RV Doctor wrong?

In 1988 we bought a new Mallard and never sanitized the fresh water system on it, the dealer might have. A few years after we got the mallard, I added a bladder tank to the fresh water system. In 2002 we replaced the Mallard with a 2003 Itasca. I adder a bladder tank to the Itasca shortly after getting it. We have had a slight off taste in the Itasca for the past many years, so we have sanitized several times, and still had a bad taste. So just before taking it to Florida for the winter I removed the bladder tank from the system. That fixed the bad taste. Did the bad taste come from the bladder tank in the first place? Or did the chlorine damage the bladder tank? I plan to install a new bladder tank. Maybe the old bladder tank was for hot water heat, not potable water. I have not removed it from the mh. yet. Dusty OK, I gotta ask, why a bladder tank? bumpy I was wondering the same thing :H Do you mean an accumulator tank/pressure tank? Yes. Most places with a well have a bladder type pressure tank, an accumulator tank is the same thing but much smaller. All the bladder does is keep the water from absorbing the air. Dusty

RE: Help!

In 1978 we bought an older 19' Jamboree on a Dodge Van chassie. The rear axel had duels, and the wheels were different than the ones on the front. The spair that came with it fit the front, with no spare for the rear. Dusty

RE: Keeping ones starting battery charged.

When we are plugged into shore power and want to keep the engine battery charged, I block the emergency switch on. Batteries are kept charged from shore power. Dusty

RE: norcold n821 won't stay lit

A thermocouple when heated with a flame, in this case pilot light, produces 250 millivolts which energizes a coil that holds the pilot valve open. Flame Senser. Fire/flame will conduct electric. The Flame Senser is nothing more than an ohm meter, so if there is continuity through the flame then the burner valve is held open. Dusty

RE: Leak in cab over bed area.

Just do a google search for pressure test rv.

RE: Battery Disconnect Solenoid

The continuos duty solenoid is what is used on many mh to connect the house and engine batteries together when the engine is running, which chargers the house battery while driving. Ours quit while on a long trip. I bought a new one from an auto parts place and replaced it in their parking lot. Dusty

RE: How can I tell what kind of door I have?

Our mh is 13 years old, we bought it new. I got tired of having to open that slide in order to open the screen door. So one day I made a button on top of it that you can push to release the latch to open the screen door. This past year our daughter and son in-law bought a new TT, it has the same type screen door latch release that I made. Maybe I should have taken out a patent on it. :>) Dusty

RE: Diesel Stoves, etc

It has been a very long time since I've seen a mh with a portable LP cylinder. All mh today have a fixed/mounted LP tank. Dusty

RE: Battery charging issue

Most mh have an electric selonid/relay that connects the engine charging system to the house batteries. With the ignition switch it run position, check check for a difference between incoming power from alternator and outgoing to house battery, if there is a difference check for 12v power at that energizes the coil on the relay. If you have 12v there then that relay is not working. Dusty

RE: gps units

We have a Garmin Nuvi, the thing that I wish was different is a volume control like a radio. Easy up and down, not reprogram. Dusty

RE: Where is it?

Most likely the gas tank holds 55 gallon. The converter is very close to the breaker panel. The breaker panel is usually right above where The power cord is terminates. The OPD cable is near the steering column, usually left side. Dusty

RE: Hot water bypass

There are check valves, both in and out on most water heaters, one of them is not allowing water into the water heater.

RE: Insulating windows

Crack open a roof vent to allow that high moisture laden air out.

RE: choosing a Class C

We feel that as long as we are able to clime into the "crows nest" to sleep then a bed down is lost floor space for day time use. We have a 2003 24' almost 25' Itasca. We spend the winter in it in Florida, a little small for spending the winter in but doable, and we like the 24' for summer travel/camping, and hauling my antique tractor.
