Plug hot/cold lines using 1/2" PVC Plugs Propane line......3/8" flared gas plug OR.........just don't use water heater. Not going to gain much by removal

RE: Norcold 982IM Fridge Issues

The circuit board is not recognizing 120V AC so it swaps to LP which doesn't light off so it swaps back to AC...repeat/fail Unplug AC leads from circuit board (power cord unplugged from AC Outlet) Unplug DC leads from circuit board Unplug spark/ignition wire from circuit board Remove cover on circuit board Unplug 5A AC fuse from circuit board (glass fuse) Unplug 3A DC fuse from circuit board (auto blade fuse) Check connector pins on leads and contacts on circuit board With cover off Install both fuses Plug AC and DC leads back onto board Plug AC cord into AC Outlet (verify it has power) Test that there is AC Power on both sides of AC fuse and DC Power on both sides of DC Fuse Got power both sides of fuses......try to operate fridge in AUTO If fridge swaps back/forth then circuit board at fault

RE: Worthwhile to insulate/enclose underbelly without heating?

An insulated enclosed area IS much better than a wide open area. Even IF you do not provide a heat source.

RE: Atwood water heater breaker tripping

Today breaker has tripped twice. Just now it stayed on for 2-3hours and then tripped. 50amp. Ac not running. Nothing in camper running expect lights. Could it be heating element? Thermostat? Can I just run it off of LP? 2015 Atwood combo electric/gas uses the SAME set of t-stats for electric & propane......same circuit board-----same DC controls Only thing separate is the 120V AC for electric element If that individual CB for water heater is tripping then problem is with the electric element circuit Either the AC wiring at the DC Relay, the wiring on the element or the element itself. All of that is located in same place.....under the protective cover on backside of WH Tank (inside the RV) Access can be easy Or really tight/difficult depending on the RV MFG and where WH is installed. Propane can be used as heating source ----it just uses DC & Propane to function Testing of element: 120V AC Power ON (CAUTION) Use voltmeter and check that you have 120V AC between HOT (Black Wire) and NEUTRAL (White wire) on the element terminals (Electric Switch ON and water temp below 110*F to controls are calling for HEAT) Testing of element: NO AC POWER Check continuity between Black Wire and White Wire Terminals on element NO CONTINUITY------ELEMENT is BAD Check continuity between White Wire Terminal and element flange CONTINUITY-ELEMENT is SHORTED

RE: I-80 tolls

I rarely travel via Interstates.......much prefer secondary/back roads cause I enjoy the scenery and relaxed drive EVEN if it causes a bit more distance/time. I'm retired and have NO time constraints so I would rather enjoy the trip vs dealing with traffic, tool booths, idiots exiting/merging etc on Interstates

RE: How long will 26 gallons last? (Also, a power question.)

26 gallon black tank capacity 1/2 gallon per flush.........52 flushes As for power usage Place fridge and water heater on propane (will have to select 'GAS' on fridge) Might be able to use Microwave Probably trip your feeder circuit breaker (15/20A---unless they provide 30A outlet) if try to start A/C Unit IF they supply hookup to 30A outlet....good to go

RE: Clock

Use a 'keyhole bracket' on back of clock (Home Depot, ACE, Lowes) And then a small piece of Command Strip/Velcro on lower porion of clock Keyhole carries weight of clock and command strip/velcro keeps it from bouncing/rocking back-forth http://community.homedepot.com/howto/servlet/rtaImage?eid=9075000000005et&feoid=Body&refid=0EM50000000HRSH height=250 width=200

RE: Uneven tire wear

WHY would you go from an 'E' rated tire that has a load rating of 3520# at 80psi to a 'G' Rated tire that has a load rating of 4080# at 110psi? And why are you only running them at 65psi? Your Sendel wheels are probably 3580#

RE: Uneven tire wear

What size/load rated tires currently on 5vr? What air pressure have you been using? Inside/outside tire wear can be alignment issues, overloaded condition, sagging springs, bent spindle, axle etc Not sure WHAT wear pattern you were describing .....? Tire Wear Patterns Sailun gets good reviews and is good competition for Good Year G614 'G' Rated Tires.....at a better price point too.

RE: Battery question in conversion camper

Batteries have to be 'isolated' from converter/fuse box and vented to outside.

RE: Best Place to Buy Torklift Tiedowns?

E-Trailer does sell Torklift Products So does Hitch Source Find which ones you want then Goggle them and compare pricing/shipping

RE: Wheel chocks - Best for trailer?

Buy a set of 'X-Chocks'......one for each side After leveling side to side BEFORE unhitching then install X-Chocks TIGHT Then after unhitching and leveling front to back go RE-TIGHTEN the X-chocks

RE: Atwood 3 burner stove grate

Sure would be helpful if OP posted actual MODEL Number then at least a part number could be found and check for availability Atwood 3 burner stove is not very descriptive as there are NINE different categories for ATWOOD Ranges

RE: 5th wheel for Tundra

YES you should go weigh truck 'camp ready'...you, fuel, passengers, backpacks, bags etc Get your trucks real weights..... NOW how much weight is left on that Rear Axle Subtract actual rear axle weight from your RAWR of 4150# Then subtract the hitch weight from that figure (70# up to 300# depending on WHICH brand of 5vr hitch you use) Now you have a weight number left over that can be used to figure 5th wheel wet pin weight----22% of 5vr GVWR Going to be limited to small light weight 5vr. You WILL exceed trucks GVWR/Payload Ratings......but as long as you stay at/under RAWR good to go LEGALLY (Canada Laws do NOT pertain) Personally when it comes to 1/2 ton trucks I prefer a 'bumper pull' cause you can get more trailer vs 5th wheel due to less tongue weights and being able to use a WDH.

RE: Looked into Refinance of RV and disappointed

When one is looking into refinancing an RV Loan then maybe it is time to sell that RV before another mistake is made.
