Thanks OLD Biscuit, Found a Keystone Document that needs 'Microsoft Office' to open. Something about rooming list template???? As to brand/model......either Suburban or Atwood Visually different Water Heaters. Suburban uses anode rod and combustion chamber/exhaust stack one above other Atwood doesn't use an anode rod and combustion chamber/exhaust diagonal

RE: Showermi$$er

Biggest issue........routing/installing that 'return' line to fresh water tank. http://www.aquaviewinc.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/Screen-Shot-2016-04-03-at-5.23.36-PM-e1459729815802.png

RE: High Altitude LP Refrigerator Performance

Nope........ As evidenced by your own experience one fridge worked OK and another one didn't Problem is fuel/air ratio. Air flow to yours is sufficient in higher elevations to be OK with the less dense air Air flow to your friends is lacking just enough to be fuel rich (imbalance in fuel/air ratio) Very small fan to enhance air to burner or smaller gas orifice to limit propane flow or adjust propane system pressure down from 11" to 10" 10.5"---one would have to PLAY with system pressure but then other propane appliances might NOT fire properly. So NOPE>>>>>>>

RE: The inevitable breakdown on the road....

So what is your criteria that alerts you when to replace....... Just time (I go for 5 years) unless they already have a schedule replacement time period as part of servicing. An alert would only work if the parts didn't have catastrophic failures. Yes, that means that I'm probably replacing some parts before they need it. Fortunately, batteries, hoses, belts, aren't very expensive. Tires are, but I can afford every five year replacements assuming they don't wear out before that time. Water pump, fuel pump, alternator, u joints.....replaced at 5 yrs also. Point is..things fail. Preventative maintenance works but does not cover all aspects. 30 yrs in power plants where maintenance was on-going to try and prevent failures because they cause HUGE LOSS OF $$$$$$$$$$$$$ and yet things fail. Like I said earlier.....how one deals with those says a lot.

RE: Electric brake question

YES.....normal Magnet gets energized (DC Voltage from controller) and tries to grab hold of drum face surface. As drum rotates magnet gets pulled as far as it can travel moving engagement lever so brake shoes are pushed out and grab hold of drum side surfaces slowing/stopping trailer.

RE: What Was She Thinking?

I was born in the 1950s and was raised to look both directions before proceeding also. I also was taught when getting my learners permit in 1960s that pedestrians have the right-away so drive accordingly when approaching cross streets/intersections. Also to pay attention for kids/animals that could dart out at any moment. Defensive driving doesn't seem to be taught or a method used much any more!

RE: The inevitable breakdown on the road....

I'm in the replace "disposable" parts before they fail side as well. I guess I had to walk too far after failures when I was younger. :) So what is your criteria that alerts you when to replace....... In other words how do you know before hand when something is going to fail so you can replace it prior to failure??? OP........ Good job with dealing with 'mechanical' failure. Stuff happens...it's the way you deal with them that matters.

RE: Thoughts on LowClearances.com software.

My 5th wheel is 13'4" also. We don't use GPS or any other 'tech' device. (Garmin did me wrong several times...so she got muffled and put away) In 7 yrs of Full Time Travel using secondary/back roads as primary routes we only encounter 2 situations of 'low clearance' that were not marked with signage LONG before actually coming to them-----alternate routes easily used One was actually marked but tree/bushes had grown over signage. Second one was were road converged/merged with another route....overpass was marked but no way to NOT go thru without backing out/disrupting traffic/creating a real headache. Then found out it was not properly marked after recent construction re-do. Cleared by 1" going slowly. I don't trust 'tech' devices so end up having to verify-----then why spend $$ on tech devices in first place.

RE: Lift for 5er hitch

Nice re-purposing of that ATV winch. Good for lifting other items also. I just leave mine hooked to 5vr...unpin it, lift it with 5vr landing gear and drive out from under it. No having to move it again after removing from truck No having to find another place to store it Ready to drop back into truck when needed.

RE: Good Black flush "trick" or bad idea?

YES....your trick works I routinely swap grey to black when dumping BUT----I have all hard piped drain lines with valving to allow me to do it before that slinky sewer hose is involved. Fact is I can shuttle grey to black, galley to black, galley to grey, galley/grey/black. It's ALL waste water. RVs use to only have ONE tank. You trick is functional BUT---------one day the slinky sewer hose will break/tear/come loose and the you will have a mess. Course with your RVs drain system the slinky sewer hose is weak leak....as it is with any RV drain system that uses one. Except you will have the hose in your hands above you head when it tears loose at connection in wet bay.......:B Robin Williams.......RV comes to mind

RE: hunter thermast

You really need to be more specific. Kinda like asking "how long of a piece of rope needed"? ASSuming you are replacing t-stat What is OLD t-stat? Which Hunter t-stat? Wiring colors? A/C---Furnace Brands? So 'How long is rope? Hunter pics http://www.diychatroom.com/attachments/f17/14061d1255296976-problem-goodman-gmnt-hunter-44155c-thermostat-hunter.jpg height=400 width=400

RE: Check your electric BEFORE unhooking

After all done, I went in to turn on air for the dogs. Well the thermostat was throwing up an error code and wouldn't turn on. I finally got a brain and went to check my PI readout and it said I had an E2 code. This was an open ground and the PI shutdown so I wouldn't do any damage. snip Don't know what this could have done to our system without the PI but nice to have it and not worry about it. Flip side of that coin is, that an open ground on the pedestal would not have harmed your rig, and your AC would have worked fine. Just as if you were on a generator. Your rig does not need a ground, just a hot and a neutral. The ground prevents someone getting shocked at the pedestal. Except that 'open ground' at power pedestal could result in a 'hot skin' condition on RV. That can be very dangerous to the RVr
