RE: Add ventilation to electrical compartment?

I'm surprised it doesn't have a fan to help control converter temps....they get hot I would add some ventilation and a small fan

RE: Air conditioner filter (I'm a smoker)

I'm a smoker.....I go outside. A/C Units use those little foam filters for a reason........air flow

RE: Admit something silly or embarrassing you've done

My job required 12 hr. rotating shifts and quite a bit of OT. My commute to work was 50 miles one way. After one long spell of OT I showed up for work (nightshift) to realize that it was my actual day off.

RE: TV antenna for permanent site?

I bought a antenna at ACE hardware......like the one RoyB pictured except just one panel. Attached it to a 5' pipe. On my rear ladder I have a flag pole mount so I just stick the pipe in it. Then coax cable from antenna to cable connection on 5vr. I use this set up when roof top antenna can get signals. For permanent site.........use a long pole. Height really helps

RE: Furnace

Need to check that ducting is properly attached to furnace discharge plenum Then need to check air flow at each register. Find any that are low/lacking air flow...then you need to check for obstruction in duct. Could be clogged, crushed or to tight of a bend in duct. Short of sticking a camera down thru duct.......you can disconnect duct at furnace and then use blower (wet/dry vac hose connected vac discharge, leaf blower etc.) to blow air thru duct and check air flow coming out register. High air flow in....low/lacking air flow out......problem with duct. New TT..........warranty issue

RE: Worried about a/c failing and dogs cooking

I don't worry about it any more than I do about house A/C unit failing.

RE: FRIG coils freezing up?

IF you are talking about the fins in the food section compartment..... Freezing from right to left? What is thermostat setting? If you don't have an adjustable thermostat control (upper panel) then is 'thermistor' still attached to clip on fin? Warm air can also enter via drip pan drain hose. Around door gaskets AND if opening/closing door frequently (or shelf shopping//grazing) warm air rushes in....especially in humid weather.

RE: toilet valve won't hold water

CLR.......pour some in toilet bowl. Let soak. Then get down and dirty with your hands and clean seal (top/bottom/sides) and the surface of ball valve. Flex the seal back and forth with your fingers. Then scrub it down Toothbrush and wooden tongue depressor work great. Clean it up, rinse clear.....wipe it down and then rub olive oil or veg. oil on seal. Work it in good.

RE: Dometic Refrig. won't run on AC

First check that outlet fridge plugs into has AC power If the 5A fuse on control board is good......then need to check the electric heater element. Best way to check it....unplug it from control board and then connect it to 110V AC power directly. This will check that heater element works and whether problem is with element or control board. If it works wired directly...control board is bad.

RE: Hot Water Help

Pilot flame lights off with re-ignitor and stays lit????? Then when you turn control knob to 'ON' position main flame will not light? First thing......is pilot flame engulfing the tip of thermocouple? Thermocouple has to get hot in order to generate milivolt signal which holds magnet inside gas control so propane can flow. If not getting hot enough no gas can flow. Bad thermocouple, dirty thermocouple, loose connection between thermocouple and gas control (should be finger tight then 1/4 turn) can cause lack of main flame. Dirty burner tube, plugged main orifice can disrupt propane flow. Orifice should be cleaned by soaking in alcohol and then blow out with compressed air........it is a metered orifice and you should not be sticking metal objects thru it to clean. And last.........gas control could be defective That is if LP Regulator is supplying 11" WC of propane pressure Does main flame light at all? ON Edit: Just read your post. Having to tap on gas control means it is time for a new gas control. They are not 'serviceable' It is sticking closed which means it can stick open. After 15 yrs. you have gotten good service....get a new gas control

RE: What is this in our fridge???

Thermister is the temp sensor for the thermostat which controls the fridge cooling cycle. On Dometic fridge that does not have an adjustable thermostat control moving thermister will affect fridge temp (4*f to 6*F overall). With an adjustable thermostat control...moving it will not have the same affect. Tip of thermister should just protrude from top of clip. Normal position of clip is middle of far right fin. Moving it UP......cooler temp Moving it DOWN....less cooler temp When measuring food section temp......check temp of fin. Fin temp should be 25*F-30*F (food section runs roughly 10*F higher than fin)

RE: Xantrex fan runs all the time?

Fan is running cause charger is running.......how low is your battery voltage? Check each battery cell........may have a shorted cell causing charger to run. LED status.....solid green, solid red, blinking ??????

RE: Insurance for Fifth Wheel Best Price

Your problem is you are in TX which has a Ins. Commission that sets rates but allows ins. companies to charge at the max rate set. We had SD as state of residency.......Full timers insurance on our 5vr (same type of policy we had on our S&B house) was $850/yr. We checked what ins. would be if we 'moved' to TX.......change of address only. Ins. was going to be $1140/yr. Same policy, same coverage.....just change of address from SD to TX. It's really hard to compare others rates as each policy is written on the individuals/vehicle/coverage/deductible/credit reports/driving history etc. etc. We used National Interstate Ins.........specialize in RV coverage BlueSky and Foremost are others. You just need to get quotes for various ins.companies doing business in TX

RE: 15K fifth wheel hitch

You need a 5vr with a 12,000# max GVWR (or less depending on diff. gearing) because your 2500 will run out of actual payload capacity, RAWR and Rear Tire MAX Load Ratings and trucks GVWR above 12,000# gross trailer weight. You can check your model tow rating HERE You want your hitch to be rating for more than trailers GVWR. But you really need to match 5vr with your trucks ratings
