RE: Aftermarket TV Wheels

I see now that they do make this wheel with a 3200# load rating, maybe they matched the correctly. Any clue if a wheel contains a visible part number? NVM. i see now that all the wheels with an 8 bolt pattern are rated at 3200. thanks. 3200# is still 500# lower than tire rating....wrong wheels

RE: Dometic fridge temp control

The 'tip' of thermistor is suppose to just protrude from top of clip. Clip then attaches (slides onto) far right fin. It is the temperature sensor that the thermostat uses to control the heat source used for cooling (electric element or propane). Thermistor measure FIN temp which will be roughly 10*F colder than compartment temp YOUR model of Dometic fridge does not have an adjustable thermostat control on upper panel......it is factory pre-set. By moving clip/thermistor UP/DOWN you can make minor (4*F-6*F) temp adjustments. UP....cooler temp in food section DOWN....less cooler temp in food section Wait overnight to measure temp changes (factory position is middle of fin) http://i24.servimg.com/u/f24/12/54/04/01/wildca10.jpg height=300 width=300

RE: Single or Double Rear Wheels?

036.6turbo picture/post of trailer-truck combo is great for a light weight trailer & truck SRW set up YOURS is NOT light weight. GO with the DRW truck..you will be a happy camper. SRW trucks make great tow platforms....I tow semi heavy with one (14K FW) Newer model SRW trucks do have higher ratings and can also be great tow platforms but it really depends on how the numbers crunch

RE: What could cause this?

You have a 2013 year trailer so your Atwood WH uses one set of t-stats for both electric & propane and uses a DC circuit board to control power to the electric element and propane gas valve. Neither heat source working and LIGHT ON ........that light is a FAULT (failure indication) In outside compartment is a thermal fuse (comes from circuit board & goes to t-stat----has plastic tube on it) When it trips (one shot device---has to be replaced) it shuts-down ALL dc power so neither heat source will function. It trips at 190*F caused by flame blowing back out of combustion chamber (spider webs/mud dabber nests etc.) https://sp.yimg.com/ib/th?id=JN.PG%2buhk0OzOWfJLayx88yUw&pid=15.1&P=0 You can remove it and plug brown wire from circuit board onto terminal of t-stat...then turn ON/OFF switch OFF to reset fault then turn back ON to test fire. (Use propane so that you can hear/see main flame light off. IF that 'fixes' issue.......buy a new thermal fuse and replace it. Clean out combustion chamber. Enjoy hot water :B

RE: Aftermarket TV Wheels

That's why the wheels have ratings......... Those tires should never have been matched with those wheels. Very misleading cause one can easily check tire rating (on sidewall) but not when it come to wheels (hidden) You need wheels that match or exceed tire ratings. All show but NO GO!

RE: traveling with water tows better?

I travel with full fresh water tank because: I want water while I travel (potty breaks/make lunch/wash up) I want water when I get to destination (got caught once when NO Water was available) RV is self-contained Full or empty doesn't change how my FW tows BUT it did make a difference on previous TT. Fresh water tank was over/forward of front TT axle. Added to tongue weight which made TT better balanced weight wise.

RE: fridge, lights, not working

Seeing as you have posted in Class A forum...guess you have some model of Class A?? What fridge? Doesn't sound like you have good 12V DC.....house battery(S) isolated via 'saleman switch' Are you plugged into AC power or just using RV house battery? Need more info.....OK :B

RE: Generator plug in front of 5ver

I installed a 50A OEM receptacle (Marinco) in front left corner....run #6 wire to a 'manual transfer' panel (originally had an auto transfer switch but they were faulty Parallex models) I can plug in OEM 50A power cord front or rear OR plug in 4KW 30A generator into either receptacle (have a 50A Marinco plug on my gen power cord...appropriately wired 30A) Sounds like you have a sub-panel with 3 circuit breakers. How are they tied into RVs AC System? Need to ID circuits in order to understand how to wire gen output. Post some pictures of this wire box etc.

RE: Why do people think this is ok?

Looks like they emptied their 'camping butt ashcan' Look on the bright-side At least they didn't just put them out on the ground during their stay or dump them on the ground.

RE: American flags?

Marcus, I noticed a LOT of products offered at CW outlets are supplied by 'Direcsource Ltd'...........a China Supplier of goods. Could you look into finding an American Company to supply those products currently coming from 'Direcsource Ltd' Thank You!

RE: FL county tells resident:keep barbecue smoke in own yard

Judging by the comments, the man was cooking at home, then selling in a neighborhood parking lot. I can see were I would NOT want a neighbor of mine commercially cooking on a daily basis. Should have went after him for a zoning violation (commercial business in residential neigborhood, etc....)not the B-B-Q smell. ยง1107. Smoke. A. The maximum amount of smoke emission permitted shall be determined by the use of the Standard Ringelmann Chart issued by the United States Bureau of Mines or most recent industry standard. No smoke of a shade darker than No. 2 shall be permitted. Got to admit after watching the video THAT is a lot of smoke going on :B They may think they are doing a good 'smoke job' but it isn't good for the meat. Now they could hire out for special effects to lay down smoke screen for an reenactment battle. AS for that Ringelmann Chart..... Very familiar with it and it's use. EPA Commercial Boiler Stack Opacity. Visual chart used to 'subjectively' read stack opacity and whether or not a fine is in order. Inspectors show up after complaints, takes a visual read (eye-balls it) and references the official chart to determine YES/NO on fine Having operated commercial boilers for 30 yrs. I have seen ALL of the shades.........Sent a huge BLACK cloud so dense and long in duration that fire departments got calls from Los Alamitos to Pico Rivera in California. Unit tripped while burning fuel oil....smoke so dark/black and heavy that it fell out of stack :B https://s.yimg.com/fz/api/res/1.2/32trYSwvoAeLaTflR30LJw--/YXBwaWQ9c3JjaGRkO2g9MzA2O3E9OTU7dz01NzU-/http://www.opalenvironmental.com.sg/images/ringelmann.jpg

RE: My normal morning routine

I do not function in the AM until AFTER coffee so coffee machine is set up night before. Even I can 'push' a button in the AM One thing I have noticed is I have all these little notes in my pockets...reminders of what I am looking for or suppose to do. Problem is I forget to throw the notes away so I end up wondering why do I have a note about replacing burnt out bulb in laundry room when I'm reading that note using the light in the laundry room :H

RE: Speeding in campgrounds

When I see a car travelling fast I roll a soccer ball out in the road and watch them slam on the brakes. Seems to send the message to slow down. I like your way of thinking :B Soccer balls are expensive so I just throw large rocks

RE: Screen for refrigerator duct

Don't forget to take into account.....AIRFLOW If you screen it off make the screen removable so you can clean it frequently otherwise it will clog/restrict airflow and fridge cooling will suffer

RE: American flags?

BigBlockTank Thanks for your service BUT from one VET to another VET I find some on your comments rude and offensive. British accent :H Mexico in your profile :H Those were uncalled for SIR. MADE in USA is hard to find..........lots of things pass because they are assembled in US The vegetables, meat, clothing, toiletries, razors to shave with, fuel for your vehicles etc you purchase day in/day out...do you know the origin. It's a global economy and as such we *the USA* participate in that global economy. Thank goodness other countries purchase our goods!! Again...Thank You for your service. Yours/mine and thousands +++ of others that served give us the freedoms we enjoy. We're ALL emigrants to this Great American Experiment

RE: 4 season info

4 Season RV (as advertised by various mfg.s) Enclosed & heated underbelly (typically a duct run into area around tanks/valves from furnace-------better would be that AND heat pads on tanks) Block insulation Attic vents We spent several weeks during our travels in below freezing temps (mid teens down to -14*F) Stayed warm, used on-board water and no issues with frozen tanks/valves. Colder it got the more when had to leave cabinet doors open at night to get warm air into nooks/crannies PROPANE.........if set up on site (no travel) look into 100# set up by local propane dealer. Got old taking a 30# to get filled every other day
