RE: FW tank fills when fw hooked up via hose.

Water pump has an 'internal check valve' ---- a diaphragm ---- that seals off to stop backflow thru pump. Also if you have a 'Fill' valve it can be leaking thru Disconnect pump suction line and see if water runs out (back thru pump) when using city water. If it does......install a in line check valve (Shurflo has them) in pump suction line ($10-15) Problem solved. If no water ...then fill valve is leaking thru.

RE: One More Reason To Filter Your Water

I am sure the NRDC wouldn't sensationalize any thing like this. bumpy :s But they are an international environmental advocacy group.

RE: Jayco Hummingbird CCC---is this a deal breaker?

Jayco Website even includes this info about CCC...........passengers included. Axle Ratings are just that ----weight limits----be it cases of bottle water or my big butt. CCC means the maximum weight of all passengers, personal items, food, fresh water, LP Gas, tools, other cargo and dealer-installed accessories that can be carried by the unit. CCC is equal to or less than GVWR minus UVW. Show me a link which in effect means I have to say to everyone that may visit my trailer - "Ummmm, excuse me but you'll have to step on the scales first before entering so I can determine if your weight will exceed the limits of my trailer's GVWR". Yeah right, like that's going to happen! :S You can go to Jayco and read the EXACT verbiage I posted But here it is again CCC means the maximum weight of all passengers, personal items, food, fresh water, LP Gas, tools, other cargo and dealer-installed accessories that can be carried by the unit. CCC is equal to or less than GVWR minus UVW. What is so difficult understanding that 'Weight of Humans' has to be accounted for......axle/suspension/tires/wheels be it truck, car, rv, motorhome have to carry OUR weight also. No different than a tool box in tow vehicle or in RV Weight is Weight :S

RE: fuse panel

I'm sorry, I meant converter. Got it, below fridge. I assume ac fuse should be there. Thanks guys! No AC Fuse........as in 120V AC Voltage. Circuit Breakers in 15A, 20A 30A 50A etc. A/C fuse as in for Air Conditioner....that would be a 12V DC Fuse used for thermostat and Air Conditioner Controls And Air Conditioner would also have a 120V AC Circuit Breaker 15A for the Fan and Compressor Motors

RE: fuse panel

Odds are that there ISN'T an 'inverter'.........just a 'converter' Open the panel where 120V AC Circuit Breakers are .......DC Fuse Panel should be part of that power panel Typically in kitchen area. Will have small slotted opening for fan in cover.

RE: Jayco Hummingbird CCC---is this a deal breaker?

One thing people forget: the cargo capacity is as valid when not moving as when moving. Include the weight of the occupants, too. What in the world are you talking about? :h ... no one tows a trailer with anyone in it! Real world trailer CCC is simply the difference between the trailer's dry weight as it sits there ready to be hitched to a tow vehicle and it's GVWR, the most it must ever weigh fully loaded and ready to camp ... has nothing to do with the weight of occupants in the tow vehicle. Likewise, available CCC has nothing to do with how many people may be in the trailer when it's parked. :R What he's talking about is the Sleeping Capacity Weight Rating. Take the number of sleeping positions and multiply by 154 pounds. This number is also figured into the CCC by the manufacturer. If you think about it, putting people into the camper is the same as adding stuff. The axles are rated to carry a certain amount of weight, whether dead or alive, moving or not. Correct......... Jayco Website even includes this info about CCC...........passengers included. Axle Ratings are just that ----weight limits----be it cases of bottle water or my big butt. CCC means the maximum weight of all passengers, personal items, food, fresh water, LP Gas, tools, other cargo and dealer-installed accessories that can be carried by the unit. CCC is equal to of less than GVWR minus UVW.

RE: Post that do not stick to subject

Gave yourself away.......you had to have read enough to know about the corn syrup, condensed milk, grits and fish/chips sticking. But I still don't get the connection to human behavior?

RE: Propane and electric at the same time? Hot water heater??

Electric alone........slowest recovery rate (roughly 6 gal/hr) Propane alone.........faster recovery rate (roughly 11-13 gal/hr) Electric & propane....fastest recovery rate (roughly 18-20 gal/hr)

RE: Jayco Hummingbird CCC---is this a deal breaker?

Because it is a single axle short (under 20') light weight trailer....but it does come with nitrogen filled tires

RE: Dometic Refridgerator Repair - Might Help Someone

When it starts not cooling again take it out and roll it end over end several times then turn it upside down for 24 hrs. after which turn it rightside up for 24 hrs. Above is 'other' band-aid cure.....

RE: Home toilet

Not enough set back.........distance from center line of floor flange to back wall-------for residential style toilet with a TANK I even once considered a chain operated tank mounted up high (inside cabinet) Just measure from back wall to center of current toilet. Then go check out distance needed for a toilet with tank at your local hardware store. Nope.....won't fit.

RE: just purchased fuel milage horrible

How did you determine it used 25 gallons in that 50 miles? Had a 1975 F250 460CCI. (385 motor) It got 5 mpg Due to emissions engine had been detuned (timing ******** 8*) R E T A R D E D is blocked? Timing was SET BACK 8* as in opposite of Advanced! Changed cam/crank timing gears to pre-detuned, 4 bbl Carter and set of headers. Mileage went to 10 mpg regardless of how I drove it or loaded it On Edit: Yes ........mine was a P/U not a Class C but Ford 460 (385 motor) was same whether it was in a truck/RV/boats and 1972-1978 were detuned.

RE: antenna TV question total newbie

You have to know which direction are the TV Transponder Towers, how far away they are and IF you can get the channels......... This will help you find that info......LINK Or this one........LINK Enter the CG information (address/zip code etc) Move pointer to your exact location for better info Then 'AIM' the front (HEAD) of antenna in direction indicated Then SCAN for channels if you're going to go to all that trouble remember that the broad side of the batwing antenna is where the signals are captured...not the ends. for example, if the transmitters are north of your location you would point the batwing so the arms point east and west. but, it's a lot faster and easier to either point your batwing antenna the same way as your neighbors in the CG OR orient the antenna wings north/south and scan for channels. then re-orient them east/west and re-scan to see which produces the better result. That is why you point the HEAD towards the towers A full 90* swing does NOT bring in signals ....signals are very directional and moving antenna just a few degrees will get/loose signals Checking the websites only takes a few minutes and gives one a compass heading to aim antenna.....neighbors aren't always around or have antenna aimed correctly. 7 yrs of FT traveling weekly found the websites to be quick and easy especially when one has no clue what is available or which direction You -------your way' Me ----my way. Ah such is life!

RE: Searching for extraterrestial life.......

Remember the movie 'Contact' with Jody Foster? All about SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Contact will never be made.........any intelligent life form will just bypass us. I was an extra in that movie......part of the military squad at gate when she drove on base where all the protestors lined the roadway. 3 days of filming George Air Force Base Victorville CA $5/hr and catered breakfast/lunch/dinner (really good catering) Jake Busey (Gary's Son) was the radical evangelistic. He was 'NORMAL'
