RE: Cedar Creek gray water tanks

I have three tanks...black, grey and galley Black and grey are good size ----galley is 28 gal All three drain into a common drain header so I permanently installed another drain valve in that common header. With it closed I can open grey/galley drain valves and increase my grey waste capacity. I can open all three tank drains valves ----black, grey & galley and really increase my waste water capacity And after dumping black tank I can close the 'extra' valve.then open grey/galley and backflush soapy grey into black tank then dump Plus with the extra valve I get no surprises when I remove drain line end cap unless extra valve is leaking. Did the permanent install because I didn't want the extra weight of the twist on valve hanging on end of drain pipe while traveling OR having to install/remove/store when I want to use it.

RE: Question For All The Sailun Tires Owners

DIC isn't accurate enough to display the 'slight' increase in less rolling resistance. Wind drag has more of an impact. My mileage is always better when towing my 5vr right after I have washed and waxed it. Especially if I have done the truck also AND recently changed oil/fuel filter and air cleaner filter :B

RE: Refrigerator still not working.

How about BRAND/MODEL for starters...... Generic 12V DC to control module backside of fridge? 120V AC to outlet fridge is plugged into? Fuses on control module not blown...tested not just looked at? Upper panel lights on...work? Does it turn ON? Does it go in 'auto' mode?

RE: Travel Trailer or Fifth Wheel?

We bought a 5th wheel because I could walk from one end to other end WITHOUT bumping my head or having to stoop We bought a 5th wheel for the extra storage space. We bought a 5th wheel because same length TT would have added a lot more to overall combo length (34' TT plus tongue vs 34' FW with 3' over truck bed) We bought a 5th wheel because they are easier/more comfortable to tow and less hassle hitching (I can hitch up FW w/o having to get in/out of truck to check alignment even off level//jacked ) We bought a 5th wheel because I wanted one...and she liked the floorplan

RE: "Cold" tire pressure question

"Cold" is relative. Set the pressure in the morning before you roll and before the sun hits the tires. Adjust up or down as needed. If you have moved to a different climate then repeat the procedure the next morning. There you go....nice clear concise simple answer. :B

RE: Water heater

1st ..... Stop throwing parts at it. Failed gas valves are not common issues. Uses a 'spark electrode' for high voltage spark and main flame proving (no thermocouple----no pilot) Does it SPARK? Have someone turn switch ON while you are out at WH and can see/hear spark electrode fire...CLICK, CLICK, CLICK No spark..... Check for tripped Hi temp T-stat Rubber cover with 'Push to Reset' Left button is for propane Hi temp T-stat reset. If tripped you will feel it reset....resistance If not tripped then you need to troubleshoot further by testing/measuring DC voltage ....from Main FUSE to switch to junction box (backside of tank) to t-stats (RED wire--outside compartment) to control board (RED wire--mounted inside rv close to WH) to Gas Valve (Black wire) Blue wire....fault light Yellow wire ...Ground Spark electrode...mounting screw used as ground for spark assembly Good grounds/good DC voltage---good spark---good flame

RE: Park to reverse hard to move lever

It seems to be random on flat surfaces and wheel pointing straight. Do you use 'parking brake'? (Engage parking brake PRIOR to removing foot from brake pedal)

RE: Tire flex

What pressure are you running them at? I run 60# front tires ALL the time......towing 14K 5vr or not towing Get at least 60K out of the Michelins and I rarely rotate tires.

RE: norcold 1210

Has it been running for past 2 weeks or it ran OK for 2 weeks and you just turned it back on? Unplug electric heater leads from lower board....plug leads directly into the 120V AC outlet and run fridge overnight. Elements will heat continuously.......circuit board/thermistor bypassed. If freezers and food compartments cool down then cooling unit is good Fridge is level......has been level correct???

RE: Hindsight moments

Too many to count.......that is what being young is about. Life experiences. Either they KILL you or you LEARN from them Surf riding back of Fiat Sedan Going Elk hunting on horseback and NOT paying attention to storm Riding the 'Geronimo' line out of the derrick just because Rock climbing w/o gear....then after making it to top trying to figure out HOW to get back down Loading up F100 with 2 full buckets of gravel and then driving 50 miles to dump it....front tires barely touching/steering I have a long list of :H I'm still vertical :B

RE: What is the value of a level rig?

PIN WEIGHT........ Nose high...lighter pin (can cause chucking in hitch) Shift on weight t trailers rear axle/tires Nose low....unnecessary increase in pin weight. Can overload trucks rear axle/tires if close to ratings Level tow.... Trailer axle/tires carry equal amounts (give/take floorplan) Pin weight within margin....20%-25% Smoother tow

RE: Refrigerator cover

Turn plastic 'clips' so slots are vertical Then jiggle cover to release. IF that doesn't work...... After turning so slots are vertical grab clips with pliers and pull them out so they release from frame that vent fits into

RE: Dometic RM2611 freezer cold / fridge warm

Sorry but unplugging the leads of thermistor (temp sensing device in food compartment on far right fin) will cause fridge to run/cool continuously----failure mode from lack of temp sensing. Freezer section 'cold' and food compartment NOT COLD......blockage between freezer evap coil and food compartment evap coil. Cooling unit is DEAD. NO Good...will NOT cool

RE: Tire upgrade air preasure ?

Even if the metalwheel said 65 max, I'd probably go to 80. It just isn't that big of a difference. Does make a BIG difference 65 to 80 is a 23% increase Rims not rated for that will make a big difference.

RE: Real Weights

I didn't realize how much stuff we carried until we unloaded our previous 5th wheel onto the carport so we could deliver it to the dealership to trade for our current TT. Easily several hundred pounds. Our currency here in the US is metric. I don't know why we still use thumbs and feet for everything else. Sorry but NO........ Since 1786 US Currency uses decimal monetary systems (1 dollar =100 cents) Most ALL nations use it NOW British System of pounds, shillings, and pence is not used by many any more....
