RE: SHURFLO In-Line Check Valve Not working

Most times just using the pump will clear 'check valve' of any debris/scale and allow it to fully close when pump is off. HERE is a in-line check valve

RE: Where to do a 30# propane exchange

My tanks have been out of certification for years. No one ever bats an eye at refilling them. Your propane cylinders would have to have been mfg. prior to 2005 to be 'out of date' under 'old' DOT re-certification requirement as re-cert was 12 yrs after date of mfg. NEW DOT Re-certification NOW 10 yrs after date of mfg. stamped on collar (EFFECTIVE Jan. 23, 2017) Visual inspection ----still good for 5 yrs Proof Pressure Test...was good for 7 yrs---NOW good for 10 yrs Volumetric Expansion Test...was good for 12 yrs---Now good for 10 yrs So if your propane cylinders were mfg. prior to 2007 they ARE out of date

RE: Atwood water heater not working with lp

Long before the ECO/T-stat/Thermal fuse mentioned become involved you have to have 12V DC to circuit board via ORANGE wire/Gas (or White/electric) Look at backside of water heater and see if there is wiring junction.....water heater comes with wiring that has to be connected to wiring from ON/OFF Switches. Could be as simple as loose wire nut. (WHITE/Electric, YELLOW/DC Relay, ORANGE/GAS, BLUE/Fault Light, GREEN/12V DC Neg) ORANGE wire gets 12V DC from GAS On/Off switch.....circuit board has to get it first THEN 12V DC goes out BROWN wire (bottom connector) to thermal fuse/t-stat and back to circuit board via BROWN wire (top connector) Then 12V DC goes to ECO/Gas Valve via RED wire

LESS is More. 1 bag in ==== 2 bags out Full Time weights......everything we owned was aboard :B Funny thing is watched a lot of weekend campers pull up and spend the next 30 minutes PLUS pulling stuff out and more stuff and more stuff---like those circus clown cars Yet I was able to open any compartment and SEE everything w/o having to move anything.

RE: Suburban water heater will not keep heating

Well instead of throwing parts at it....... Didn't need gas valve, or thermostats or control board Flame lights off but is not PROVING Flame has to PROVE it lit or circuit board will drop DC to gas valve solenoid shutting it so raw gas doesn't flow Flame PROVING is done via 'flame ionization' -----a milivolt signal is generated and sent back to circuit board via spark electrode Spark electrode: Has to be clean....emery cloth to remove soot/carbon Has to be 'engulfed' in main flame....adjust position Has to have clean/tight connection on high tension wire...plug off and clean/make sure it goes on tight Has to be free of cracks in ceramic...check for ground tracking at night/in the dark...replace electrode if cracks

RE: Need help diagnosing roof A/C

Fan runs Compressor runs Air flows out of ducts? Air is not cool when on AC or hot when on Heat pump? Then you have a leak and all freon is gone. Cheaper to replace unit then it would be to have tech locate leak, fix leak, add service valves, add freon

RE: Leaky spigots!

I only use water at ANY CG to fill my fresh water tank and then use my RV Pump even when at FHU sites. $6000 PLUS damages/costs when had a leak while sleeping connected to city water. Never again. If leak occurs pump cycles and I hear it LONG before damages Turning pump on/off is convenient and I don't even have to go out of rig. CG water spigot is for filling/refilling and black tank flushing

RE: Nut and Bolt or Self Tapping Screw?

I recently damaged a scissor stabilizer jack / mounting bracket on my TT. The welds holding the 1/8" metal mounting bracket to the frame are still sound BUT part of the bracket is bent and needs to be straightened. Impossible to do without cutting welds. I can get the bracket to be straight if I clamp and force the bent portion back up to the frame and secure it with a 1/4" bolt and nut or self tapping screw. Does either the nut/bolt or self tapping screw method impact the strength of the I beam frame more than the other? Which is the preferred method? Hopefully the picture shows the bent gap I need to snug up to the frame.. http://i.imgur.com/PJCi5mFl.jpg http://i.imgur.com/PJCi5mFl.jpg height=500 width=300

RE: Nut and Bolt or Self Tapping Screw?

Self tapping would have a tendency to pull back out Nut/bolt for more secure mounting and added strength

RE: Choosing city water or fresh water tank

Typical RV Trailer water system. City water connection feds cold water system directly and ties into same cold water line water pump feeds. Off of the cold water system is a inlet to water heater which then feds hot water system City water connection has a check valve in it to prevent backflow out connection when using pump. Pump has an internal check valve to prevent backflow thur pump when using city water. When connected to city water pump can be ON but wouldn't run due to pumps pressure set point for starting. IF city water pressure should drop below pump start set point pump would run and supply system until city water pressure recovered. Provided you have water in fresh water tank I would make two suggestions: 1) get and use a good quality water pressure regulator---WATTS are good and rebuildable. Set it for 50# Static (no flow) Use it whenever connected to RV...even black tank flush system (different hose....regulator at supply with a 'Y' for the two different hoses. 2) fill fresh water tank and use it/pump vs city water Had a leak while sleeping and city water connected......flooded RV $6000 PLUS in damages/costs Now only use pump/fresh water tank cause if a leak happens I can hear pump running Plus showed up at CG once w/o full fresh water tank and CG water supply main line broken....no water available. http://www.rv-insight.com/images/plumbing-rv.gif.pagespeed.ce.heIJW-sIys.gif height=400 width=350

RE: How to remove wedged or shanked bolt

Can you rotate shaft so end of bolt is up or at least sideways so you can pound it out with a hammer?
