RE: Fresh water holding tank overflow HELP please

Where did it come out....back thru fill opening? IF so that can happen cause you are filling faster than tank can vent. Also most fresh water tanks have an 'overflow' to ground. That's how I know my tank is FULL :B

RE: Warm Norcold

If it has fans they would be in outside compartment near the top vent. When on AC does flue get hot? When on Propane does it light off, flue get hot? Do you see any powdery residue (yellowish) anywhere in outside compartment? Both freezer & food section warm.....works on AC/Propane......that suggests cooling unit failure/leak

RE: What's my 5th wheel worth?

NADA lists it 'Low Retail'--------$1,870 'High Retail'--------$2,250 Subtract $12K for new roof. You'd be lucky to have someone come drag it away. Sorry but trailers with rot just don't sale very well. You are probably right but the value you are quoting is before adding in any features. I actually got a value of $4330.00. Did you subtract for the rotted roof.......and the hidden water damage?

RE: No Heat - Regulator ?

Are both cylinders valved IN? Indicator shows RED when the in service cylinder goes empty...then it auto switches to other cylinder. Turn lever to other cylinder and indicator will turn GREEN IF other cylinder is valved in. Disconnected cylinders will not free flow propane...safety devices. Cylinder has to be connected to pigtail to open the internal valve on cylinder fitting And if connected to pigtail but disconnected at other end......the excess flow check valve inside the pigtail ACME nut will trip/close so no propane can flow. If both cylinders are valved in service and both are full (or even one full) Close the valve. Turn lever to cylinder you want to use Slowing valve cylinder IN. Indicator turn GREEN? IF it does......light off stove top burners to get propane flow established and place a demand on Regulator. Then check flames....steady, no decrease in size as you turn more on. If indicator doesn't turn GREEN then pigtail or regulator could be at fault.

RE: New Thetford Bravura toilet wobbling

I don't know of a valid reason wax rigs aren't used. If toilet sits on floor and properly attached......vibration won't affect wax ring Hot/cold temps shouldn't affect wax ring..they are used in many different applications in buildings that are NOT heated/cooled Foam seal is less messy.

RE: New Thetford Bravura toilet wobbling

Measure the circumference of floor flange. Measure the inside area of Bravura that needs to fit over floor flange. Trim floor flange outside ring so Bravura fits down onto floor. Wax rings come in different thicknesses with/without plastic cone Plain wax ring....$1.50

RE: Warm Norcold

Does it have fans in outside compartment? IF it does..are they working? Is in in a slide-out? What are outside air temps? Is freezer cold (0-10*F) and food section warm? Or is freezer & food section warm? Are you using propane or electric? How off level was MH before you re-leveled?

RE: Carbon Monoxide from Furnace

Cracked combustion chamber........do not use furnace until you replace chamber. The problem with combustion/exhaust fan caused the chamber to overheat and crack due to insufficient air flow.

RE: Electric HW Heater Red Light On Panel Flashes

Is the water getting extremely HOT when heated by electric? Light just flashes.....doesn't stay ON? Could be moisture from cooking getting into switch Could be loose connections in switch Could be loose connections on t-stat(s) Could be one of those things.......intermittent and can't ID until it breaks!

RE: Disconnect battery or leave it charging.

If converter is a Single stage dumb charger......remove If converter is a 3 stage charger......leave connected/charging. Ours has been plugged into power of some sort for 7 yrs.

RE: atwood GC6AA-10 hot water heater

Getting propane flow initially can cause water heater (Fridge and/or furnace) to attempt 3 times to light off then 'lock out' Resetting by turning switch OFF/ON So lighting off stove top burners on high helps get the propane flow established and the LP regulator to come into play for demand. LOUD is subjective..... Yes you can hear the main flame BUT it should NOT be extremely loud. When it lights off check the flame: Is the flame nice, steady blue with tinges of yellow at tip? Loosen set screw on air shutter (yellow arrow) Slide air shutter on burner tube (yellow circle) closing/opening slots until flame is correct........and less LOUD. Also make sure flame engulfs the spark electrode https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-vjTiXx0cotU/UX7azm1wQpI/AAAAAAAAmjY/Gy_NRI8aJGg/w640-h480/atwood-dsi.jpg

RE: Towing with Full Water Tank?

I have no rationale why NOT to. That's what the tank is for..........holding water and traveling. We FT'd for 7 yrs. I always traveled with at least 20 gallons but got caught short one time due to lack of water (main line broke) so it was a full tank from then on. When towing....weight plays a factor to a certain point. Wind Drag is the bigger mileage killer. Besides......once you hook up mileage drops to what it is. I like having water...especially when I know where it comes from/taste/quality. Fill it UP. You're only going 2 hours away :S

RE: OOPPPSSS,,This isn't going to end well!!

I would suspect that slideout on curbside is also extended. Not uncommon for all slides to operate in series....one goes out, then the next then the last. Reverse for retracting. SO if controller failed....none would operate. None operating.....owner didn't have a clue how to 'manually' close "Honey...we got a problem. Slides don't work" "Sweety...don't fret I'll just have to drive it home with them open. It'll be OK. What choice do we have?"

RE: Details, Details, Details

When you are 'piece mill' fast is $$ It's a lot qicker to grab the end of wire and PULL Same goes for PEX..........PULL Boss "OK guys.....we have 14 units scheduled for today. Hit it!" One worker to another "Bet we can get done by 1 O'clock" When I had to get to a failed transfer switch (8 mos. old) I had to pull a false wall out of basement compartment. Behind that fake wall was where all the plumbing/electrical runs were. I spent several hours folded up in there redoing/re-routing. Left that wall out....gained couple feet of extra space PLUS I can easily see every thing.

RE: Lubing the Fifth Wheel

I think the OP is talking about his 5th wheel hitch. NOT about a Hitchhiker 5th wheel. Don't know of a 'Hitchhiker' Brand of hitches.....could be Hijacker ? Anyway.....OP Check with your hitch mfg and/or manual. See if you are NOT to use a Teflon Lube Plate due to possible 'high hitching' concerns. If not problem...use the Teflon Plate. Then you just need to grease pivot points, moving parts etc. occasionally and not have to grease the hitch head plate. IF it's a concern.... Use Slip Plate spray on hitch plate
