RE: Thor Super C (Chateau/Four Winds) improvements and mods

Just checked mine and they are only bolted

RE: Black tank flushing

I had a Dolphin years back, it came with one installed, plastic, pressure broke two units, yes I should not use such pressure, but then a brass one was installed and as long as I had that motorhome, never broke another unit. What seemed to happen was the pressure would blow out the back flow valve. But, being how I can get to my tank on my new MH right from the waste bay, I shouldn't worry about it so much. So a camping world I will go. Thanks

Black tank flushing

OK, so I've seen the different flushers example; Tornado, but, is there one that is made from brass and NOT plastic? I want to install one, but not a plastic one, including the jet mechanism. I would also change the style of hose hookup to the type used in our MH now. So, again, is there one made of brass fittings?

RE: What did you do to your Class C MH today???

Ah yes, today was installing EMS-HW50c hardwired from Progressive Industries surge protector. I don't remember it being so hard to bend those #10 wires around in the small box the last time :) But it all works, only three hours.

RE: Roof mounting solar panel

Has anyone tried STICKY FEET? Again, I don't want to screw anything into the roof until my warranty is up. Check my first post for phot of dimpled fiberglass roof. STicky feet As I mentioned above, you get a lot of wind especially traveling at 60 - 75 mph, I for one, would not want to have that wind pulling up on the panels, as this could pull the TPO away from the plywood it is glued too. What is worse, warranty will not cover that problem if it was to happen.

RE: Purging air from the water pump - How to

Found more info coolmom42 you hit it on the nose: OPERATION AND ADJUSTMENTS With pump switch off and battery fully charged, fill water tank, open all faucets and then turn pump switch on. Water will begin to flow. Until the water is free of air, turn faucets off. Remember, you are filling the water heater, the toilet and the shower lines at the same time. When all valves are shut off, pump will stop. Should the pump fail to stop, turn switch off and check troubleshooting guide. I just went out and turned everything back on to try it out. Everything delivers great, I think it is me, just a different sound that I'm not used to.

RE: Purging air from the water pump - How to

To all your questions, I'll have to answer kind tomorrow it's dark now and cold outside, I'll wait for daylight tomorrow, I will also try turning everything on as I did not do that, I did leave the kitchen faucet on but no change, I'll go for all, and yes, I idid install in the correct direction, but thanks for asking I did look just to make sure :) Until tomorrow I'm done for tonight.

Purging air from the water pump - How to

OK, so I have a new pump, but now it is making a heck of a chatter, beyond the pumping noise. I assume it is air, so how do I purge the air from the filter/lines. It doesn't seem to go away just by running it, just keep chattering.

RE: Roof mounting solar panel

What would worry me about just being glued onto the rubber roof all that surface that wind can get under, could lift both the panel and the rubber away from the plywood under the TPO.

RE: Roof mounting solar panel

I used seam sealing tape (don't have the name until I get home) it's about 4" wide. I cut pieces for each foot and put that on the roof first. Then I laid the panels (four 100w panels) on each pad and put two screws in each of the legs. It's supprising what wind can do. Then of course I put dicor over all that. I drilled a hole through the roof into the center of a wall (I must have measured a dozen times) and hit it perfectly, and put went to the floor next (also measured a dozen times) putting the controller in with the inverter. The remote I ran back to the wall where all the other remotes are. Took from 8 in the morning to about 4 in the afternoon.

RE: combiner box for solar

Well, I'm back, different RV now a Super C and doing the solar install all once again. This time I'm going with 400w - and I believe the PWM controller over the MPPT. Once again, I need a better set up than I had last time. Last time I had two 100w panels for 200 w with a MPPT controller.

Enjoy your new home away from home. We also were there and found a Super C we just bought from Giant RV.

RE: combiner box for solar

Thank you all for your input, it is very useful, now to put it all together. I'll be back I'm sure :)

RE: combiner box for solar

Bend, while I fully agree with you, I was hoping to do parallel for the benefit of one might get some shade, I still have the other to pick up the difference, in series, if one gets shaded, the other will drop accordingly. I'll have to look into this more, as you do have a point well taken.

combiner box for solar

So is anyone using a combiner box for two 100w solar panels. What I see I really don't need it even with hooking them up parallel. I going into a MPPT20 charge controller. Using the system for battery charging only - no inverter. I do plan on putting one 20A fuse just before the controller
