RE: Cameo electric water heater switch

Cameo uses a Suburban Water Heater so it will have an OEM ON/OFF switch for electric element in outside compartment (lower left corner) Also.Hi temp t-stat could be tripped. 'Push To Reset' cover above gas valve. Left one is for 120V AC element (Right is 12V DC propane) Trips on HI temp 170*F 120V AC connects to HI then goes to Normal via a connecting wire then to element Connecting wire can burn thru....remove cover and check If not tripped then Element could be bad/shorted Under oval cover below gas valve 120V AC across the two terminals with Switches ON and water temp below 100*F.

RE: Wheel chock

X-chocks stop back/forth rocking motion BUT are NOT 'recommended' in lieu of wheel chocks. The two together work best. Wheel chocks to stop the rig from rolling away and the X-chocks to help with that 'boat on water' feeling I have used just X-chocks (both sides) on my 5vr but only on fairly level sites. ANY slope for/aft I wheel chock first then x-chock and recheck that evening Wheel Stop....? Is that a different product or different description of X-Chocks?

RE: Two 6 volt vs two 12 volt run time

Two 6V batteries in series.......12V with SAME amp hour Two 12V batteries in parallel----12V with double amp hour So depends on WHICH 6V/12V and their amp hour ratings

RE: BD20 in 6.7 Cummins

here is what my manual says: "A maximum blend of 20% biodiesel meeting ASTM specification D-7467 may be used with your Cummins diesel engine. (Pickup models and Chassis Cab models configured with B20 Capability.)" You have a 2017. OP has a 2007.5 Different critters......2007-2013 Chrysler states NO

RE: Scary: footplate slipped out of position!

I imagine the OP is doing something like Soundguy's pix http://i.imgur.com/jIBLYfzl.jpg"height=450" Which IS a HORIBLE IDEA since you are depending on not only the friction between all the blocking keeping things together but a very unstable high stack of small lumber which places the center of gravity very high on the stack.. There is no MECHANICAL CONNECTION BETWEEN THE JACK AND BLOCKS that can prevent that pile of lumber from tipping over! Yet again you're entirely incorrect. As I detailed earlier in another thread on this same subject my trailer's front tires, both curb side and street side, sit on wheel pads to which chocks are firmly attached, so I'm using the weight of the trailer itself to firmly lock the trailer in place. :B http://i.imgur.com/pyE9Bznl.jpg There is NO forward pressure on the tongue jack - NONE - and therefore your assertion that this technique is a HORRIBLE IDEA is 100% incorrect. It's actually an excellent method of assuring my trailer is locked down firmly on my sloped driveway. Fact is, you simply don't know what you're talking about. :R Details........it's all in the details :B

RE: Advice on repair

First... The repair was NOT fine.....it leaks! Second... YES the 'repair' should be FIXED and cleaned at no additional costs Provided this was JUST recently done......not weeks/months ago. Time-line? Clean up.... Reopen area...remove/replace any insulation and BLEACH everything

RE: Can I add air admittance valve?

So, our kitchen sink vents on the side of the trailer. And, of course it is right where I like to sit on the deck. If the wind blows just right we get smell. It also sometime goes back through the window by the sink, that gets the wife. Can I plug that vent and install an air admittance valve under the sink? And, do I put it anywhere between the trap and the stack? thx YES....... Downstream of 'P' trap on a 'stub pipe' http://www.carsondunlop.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/49-1.jpg height=300 width=400

RE: Travel trailer GVWR more that combine GAWR

Thank you, for your response, first of all. Secondly, this is the F150, FX2 Eco-boost 2012 upgraded with special towing package till 11,300lbs towing capacity, with AirRide system and other issues. So please don't worry, this is amazing truck and can safely tow a lot !!! I just can't help myself.... what is the cargo capacity of the truck with the towing package? FYI: Tow rating means little with a TT. The heck with that.... Load it up (truck/trailer) camp ready..everybody and ALL the stuff then hit the CAT Scales for a REAL WORLD eye opening information about weights. Stickers, data plates, mfg. specs......hooey! Real World ......ACTUAL weighing Once across scale without WDH connected Once across scales WITH WDH Once across scales truck only Now have ALL the info needed to: 1) Set up WDH 2) Get real tongue weight 3) Get real weight on axles 4) Get real weight on truck....and how close/over it is WEIGH IT...then post the REAL Weight numbers PS: Post pictures of actual weigh tickets (all 3 of them) and I will send you the reimbursement of costs for weighing! ON EDIT: Truck GVWR ---------------8,200# Truck/trailer GCVWR ---- 17,100# MAX Tow (published) -----11,300# Published.....150# driver and 20# cargo MAX Payload.....F150 3.5L Eco 4x4 ---REG CAB/2398# (1539# or less for other cabs) MAX Tongue weight (With WDH) 1,130# (only 10% of MAX Tow weight??) GCVWR minus MAX Tow====max weight of truck 17,100 - 11,300 = 5800# (bet truck weighs MORE then that so tow weigh goes DOWN) So if truck is closer to GVWR 8200# then trailer weight can only be 8900# for GCVWR Two weights one should NOT exceed.... GAWR and GCVWR So load up camp ready and post.....otherwise you are OVER WEIGHT truck and truck/trailer combo. Simple addition/subtraction

RE: Extended warranty

Only Factory has warranties All others are 'service contracts' which MUST HAVE PRIOR AUTHORIZATION before having any thing done.... Any other way...YOU pay.

RE: Norcold 1200 refrigerator fan wiring question

Fans wires?? Fans are supplied via circuit board 12V DC POS goes to thermostat on condenser fin and then to fan 12V DC Grd comes from fan back to board 12V DC POS (should be black) would be LEFT 12V DC Grd would be RIGHT Thermostat....Closes when condenser fin temp reaches 130*F and Opens when condenser fin temp drops to 115*F

RE: BD20 in 6.7 Cummins

here is what Cummins has to say https://cumminsengines.com/biodiesel-faq Nice link.....good info But one has to weed thru it ALL to come to the right answer Is B20 approved for the RAM Turbo Diesel? Cummins approves the use of up to B20 in the RAM trucks for municipal, government, and commercial fleets only. This applies to selected model year vehicles. Please consult Chrysler for specific requirements and approved vehicle models. That means NO The following is straight from 'Owners Manual' NOTE: A maximum blend of 5% biodiesel meeting ASTM specification D-6751 may be used with your Cummins Diesel equipped vehicle. That means NO
