RE: Helicopter inspecting power lines !

Utility company I worked for had their own pilots/crews that worked Energized High Voltage lines ----220KV and UP Thanks to 'Faraday Cage' effect.......all good----and one heck of a pilot Just a slight tingling -------:B https://www.transnet.co.nz/ic/2501490187/live%20line%20helicopter.1.jpg height=300 width=400

RE: Tire Wear Question

Possible alignment or bent axle Use a straight edge against front/rear tires and measure gap at front edge VS gap at rear edge http://www.centrevilletrailer.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/tire-dia2.png height=400 width=300 Check out this info on axles/alignment etc

RE: Do I have a problem

YES you have a problem.....broken wall stud at lower horizontal support That sidewall panel forward of bedroom slideout has to be removed and then wall stud(s) reattached to lower horizontal overhang support. May have to remove overhang panel and install new 1/2" lag screws thru that horizontal support also. (Install in a 'W' pattern) So you are telling me I have to remove the outside fiberglass wall? That's just nuts... Not that you are telling me that but what might need to be done. I have posted on NuWa form for more answers. Anyway, thanks for replying to my post.... YEP....... Had to take mine in to factory in Chanute, KS for sidewall repair. SAME Issue.

RE: Is a 5th Wheel hitch in dented bed possible ???

The sheet metal of the bed provides no support to the hitch. As long as you can still install the hitch/mounting system you will be fine. Exactly^^^^^^ https://storage.googleapis.com/curt_content_images/Cat43.png

RE: Landing Gear intermittant

Both suggestion are ones to check out. Switch (and motor connections).....loose/bad terminals Also check the wire connection at battery In-Line DC circuit Breaker do causes issues but you should replace with one that is properly rated for the motor and wiring otherwise might as well just hard wire.

RE: Analog TV in my 2006 Hitchhiker

Shortly after the switch to digital and the need for converter box so our 25" analog TV would work I pulled it out of the compartment, built a new cabinet door and then purchased a 32" VIZIO which I hung on the face of the new cabinet door That 25" was heavy and took up lots of cabinet space....now we have additional storage cabinet and great TV. Bought and installed a smaller VIZIO in bedroom on an articulating arm.

RE: Electric hot water heater not working

First thing I would check is to make sure that the inside shower is shut off with the faucets and not just a control on a handheld shower head, or that an outdoor shower or auxiliary water is completely shut off. Has happened to us when DH thought he shut them off, he hadn't. I had cold to barely luke warm water in the kitchen. That can happen but not for just one heat source. OP has no hot when electric on and HOT when propane on ----electric no workie

RE: Need weight verification Please!

I know others have different opinions, but my opinion is that if your truck needs airbags, you don't have enough truck. Air bags help redistribute weight to the front axle and back to the trailer axles. They also give a more comfy ride. NOPE>...... Go to the scales. Weight truck/trailer combo W/O air bags inflated Then re-weigh with them inflated There will little change in trucks F/R axle weights and trailer axle weights Air bags pump up the rear of truck but the pin weight is still there being carried by tracks rear axle. Air bags are NOT like w WDH which uses a 'fulcrum principle' to transfer weight. Air bags have no 'fulcrum' to lever weight any where but UP Go ahead and weigh and then post those numbers. YES. I'm a truck driver when I dump the airbags on the truck the psi increases on the drive axle and back t o the trailer. When bags are full, the weight distributes back to trailer and steers. When you air up the bags your raising the rear, the weight needs to go somewhere. It doeant stay at the rear axle. Its subtle transfer but enoigh to make a difference. I play with axlenweifhts everyday. Air bags do just that. Just because it's on a pickup doesn't change their purpose. You yourself say it does in your second statement. It's subtle but true enough at these weights. GO weigh your combo with and without air bags then post those axle weigh numbers. There is no FULCRUM in play to transfer weight

RE: Need weight verification Please!

This is not the only place I have asked this question. I have also asked people who carry heavy loads and that obviously understand these trucks better than most. And most of the heavy haulers that know these trucks say yes it is heavy but the truck can handle it. For those that say do the math, show me a formula or an online calculator that will give me the numbers to prove who is right or wrong. I have searched and searched and can not find one. I understand your caution and frustration, but there seems to be a lot of confusion on the 5th wheel hitch weight towing capacities of trucks. Most don't know and just buy a bigger truck as a precaution. As I have understood it for years, once you go to a triple axle, you have to have a dully. Yes weight still has a factor in all this. So please provide me with some documentation to prove me and others wrong. Again, thank you all for your input. As much as you think I have ignored it, I did take it into consideration. No complex math formula needed...just simple arithmetic---adding/subtracting And that method has been discussed and posted already But I have a quick and easy hands on method for you..........just read it in another post concerning F250 towing/payload GO to Big Box Lumber/Hardware store. Purchase 3400# of sand in bags. Have store load them into your truck bed. Drive around for a week carrying that load in bed of truck. Take a trip across some Scales and weigh truck. :E :S 3400# is the DRY weight of that 5th wheel and will only increase as you load trailer for camping.. Hold onto sand purchase receipt so you can return the sand Otherwise ........just take the advice of that performance shop

RE: Electric hot water heater not working

Thanks. I'll get the voltmeter out. One think to check is the ECO connections (RED Wires) When using Electric the ECO is still in the control circuit On propane 12V DC goes to/thru ECO to gas valve solenoids to open gas valve. On electric---millivolts go to/thru ECO and to gas valve then to ground Millivots used to confirm ECO circuit and allow ECO to function/shut down heating on Hi Temp Trip (180*F) Circuit Board doesn't sense the millivolt circuit then NO electric heating Propane can still function cause 12V DC is used SO if ECO/Gas Valve terminals are dirty/corroded/loose etc it doesn't take MUCH resistance to stop millivolts (High resistance can stop 12V DC also---but your propane is working) Just something to check if no 12V DC on YELLOW wire...but have DC on WHITE wire

RE: Atwood G6A-4E hot water heater parts needed

Atwood Water Heaters use a White Rodgers Gas Valve .....part number 93844 The MC-200 is an aftermarket gas valve (Atwood 91605) So it which one matches your current gas valve? White Rodgers Solenoid for White Rodgers

RE: Electric hot water heater not working

Starcraft uses Atwood So with propane side working you can rule out MAIN DC Fuse,'thermal fuse', t-stat & ECO cause both heat sources use same items So check the 120V AC circuit breaker for your electric element power (CB in MAIN AC Panel) and see if it tripped. Otherwise you need a voltmeter to check components DC Voltage goes to the Dual Switch ON/OFF panel DC for electric then goes to circuit board via WHITE wire (use voltmeter to check that you have 12V DC at connector on circuit board with Electric Switch ON Then have to check that you have 12V DC coming out of connector on YELLOW wire with electric switch ON AND water temp below 110*F so 'heating' circuit is active. Then you would need to check that electric element is getting 120V AC---have to remove cover on backside of water heater inside the RV. DC Relay and element under that cover DC Relay feed from YELLOW wire (cold water temp) and triggers 120V AC to element AC wires from relay could be bad Element could be burnt/shorted Electric ON/OFF Switch could be bad DC at/from circuit board could have bad connections/dirty contacts Electric circuit on circuit board could be bad Voltmeter and trace DC and AC voltages https://nebula.wsimg.com/obj/RTRCMkU0RDUzQ0M1ODE3RDgxMDg6YjcxODcxNGMwMGY1YjAzODVhNjY0NWNmMTFjMTg5YzY6Ojo6OjA= height=400 width=400

RE: 7.3. problem

Don't understand the 'hair spray' comment, the hoses clamp on, not stick on. Intercool boot hair spray trick. Hair spray on intercooler boot Hair spray to help your diesel Aqua Net works great Wouldn't it have been easier to just explain that the hair spray was used as a 'sticky agent' to help keep a clamped hose in place :H
