RE: Question about propane tanks

When you have your cylinders refilled (tanks are in MHs) do they both take at least 7 gallons? When refilling your cylinders is the place that refills using a scale? (BEST Method ----most accurate) By opening the 'bleeder' valve? (Second best.....liquid spews when cylinder is filled) By waiting until OPD shut-off filling? (Least desirable method due reliance on a float) By measured gallon? (Worst method cause it is not temp compensated) Relief valve on cylinder could be weeping OPD threads could be leaking OPD bleeder valve could be leaking Crimped connection on pigtail hose could be leaking A little time/effort checking for leaks using soapy water could find the culprit (Rinse soapy residue off thoroughly after checking)

RE: New concept (?) in rest areas?

Most States can't afford to keep rest areas open let alone man them with a Police Office Good for TX but has to be costly

RE: State income tax for each state for full time employee?

Where is the corporations office located that you work remotely for? Your 'domicile' state would be FL and you would pay taxes on monies earned based on State in which corporation you are preforming work for. That is MY tax filing OPINION. Best to ask TAX attorney/CPA....corporation payroll might even know cause they would have to withhold appropriate taxes

RE: Failure of slideout

The front landing gear and slide out power is wired directly to trailer battery As suggested......low battery voltage OR blown fuse in power line to landing gear and to slide out (each will have their own circuit) May have a DC Circuit Breaker instead of a fuse. DC Circuit breaker will look like a small terminal with 2 studs. Oh by the way.......I am Scottish with a mix of French :B

Do you have to 'jack' trailer when parking it?

RE: Jack stand under scissor jack?

Not too sure WHY anyone would use them directly under existing scissor jacks......doesn't sound very stable BUT set up under frame as supports can be useful. They are rated for 6000# each so stronger then scissor jacks (stabilizers) And when folks go using cinder blocks obviously they are fools so nothing surprises me. Have seen all kinds of set ups in CGs and I just walk quickly by shaking my head. Scary :S

RE: Fifth wheel 12 volt trouble shooting

IS your 5vr 50A? Shore power and gen are separate sources (feeds) of AC power UNTIL transfer switch then they are same out of transfer switch You have lost one of the HOT legs on shore power going to or in transfer switch Shore power only powering one bus in MAIN AC Panel and converter feed is NOT on that bus....hence no 12V DC Gen feeds both Hot legs thru it's side of transfer switch so your MAIN AC panel buses are hot and feed converter....hence 12V DC Your battery is shot OR disconnect switch is OFF hence no 12V DC from battery

RE: Arctic Fox 27T switch help

Turn off propane switch to water heater Run hot water until it turns warm (below 110*F) Turn that switch on......wait 30 minutes and check if you have hot water (that is if any other on/off switch for electric on water heater is also ON----Suburban has one in outside compartment lower left corner which I take is your brand of water heater?)

RE: Is my Propane system clogged?

Thanks old biscuit Figured out how to turn the adjustment on the regulator as had threaded hub design instead... all systems went south from moment I touched it, and couldn't get it back (verified junk regulator). Found a shop in town that stayed open till could make it there to get a replacement auto changeover. Load test with stove, water heater, and furnace together verifies problem solved. Every Marshall valve I tried on this rig has been junk. Happy kids. Thanks to all! I am not a fan of Marshall Regulators......... Thanks for the update Nice to hear you have resolved your propane flow issues.

RE: Cleaning the H2O tank

I sanitize my fresh water tank when I first purchase the rig (new or used) and then ONLY if I have issues which rarely occur.

RE: replacing rv furntiture

Haven't dealt with that company BUT whenever I hear RV with anything I can't help but think cheap made and overpriced for cheap made. We replaced our RV Furniture with residential furniture. Rocking/swivel recliners, love seat etc. Just had to check the measurements and make sure furniture would fit thru entry door (Backs coming off helps)

RE: Adjustable Water Heater Thermostat

The snap disc t-stats that Atwood uses on their DSI (Electronic Ignition) water heaters are pre-set. Normal t-stat is 140*F and the ECO (energy cut off....high temp) is 180*F The adjustable replacement for the normal can be set for 110*F to 150*F The mounting bracket is flimsy cheapo thin metal that slips under lip of opening where disc goes and the spring is light weight. It does work but could be a better design. It is open to exposure and can get corroded ---then break when attempting to make any adjustment. Reason for the high temp normal (140*F) Atwood uses is to get more hot water out of the small tank size (6 or 10 gallon) End user controls temp at faucet by mixing cold/hot together Suburban uses 130*F and has an optional 120*F set (t-stats come in a combined set normal/ECO connected to each other) so can't be interchanged with Atwood The Atwood 91470 t-stat is 120*F (Atwood FINALLY offering a lower preset) Only thing is with snap disc preset they have a range from closed to open typically 30*F The 140*F OEM doesn't reclose until 110*F for reheating so the 120*F one might not reclose until 90*F. If that is the case you will notice large temp swings in water from WH Mildly hot to warm. YES the t-stats are low voltage ever since 2004 when Atwood changed to circuit board controlled with front mounted t-stats And the terminals on normal are smaller than the ones on ECO so they aren't mixed up when installing

RE: Replaced air admittance valve, Still stinks.

Even with a full grey tank, the AAV shoukd still be doing its job, right? What gives? I have a 5'ver that when the tanks become filled there is an overflow pipe. Prior to it hitting the ground, it sits on top of the tank (I think.) Don't smell so good. Waste tanks do not have overflows.......EPA Hazard :B But the drain pipe and vent pipe going into top could be installed using a grommet vs being hard glued. With an overfull tank the grommet can leak OP....... Did you use one of the inexpensive (cheap) AAVs ? $3-$5 That just have a flapper pulled close by a rubber tang http://images.lowes.com/product/converted/046224/046224005070.jpg height=200 width=200 Studor makes a better one and more expensive $20+ http://img0026.popscreencdn.com/99480632_amazoncom-studor-20301-air-admittance-valvepipe-1-12-to-.jpg
