RE: Water Line help

Agree sounds like low point drain https://i.imgur.com/5eRfWmO.jpg Our low point drains/hot cold lines, terminate with female fittings, use simple 1/2" pvc pipe thread plugs. We do not have valves. If there were any place near you, threaded cap or threaded coupling with plug should be easy to find. Possibly if in park, store or maintenance facility or even other campers may have something. I had one disappear once so carry spares. Wouldnt hurt to ask Don't overtighten.

RE: Lost all power to 120v outlets

Possibly or original/subsequent owner installed the Onan on a generator ready camper. Lance factory generator option was the Generac, I don't know if Onan was an option

RE: Lost all power to 120v outlets

Good solve CB on our control panel has definite click with some resistance. Small double throw CBs are available but no longer thru Generac. Actual dimensions may vary a bit. Manual I have (D1752) states a 10 amp CB #0A8592 but many like NRALIFR listed show 15 amp #0A8592? same part number. So it be removing old one to verify rating. Not OPs issue but if CB is not positively open/closing I'd consider replacing. just example https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000K2O0MM https://photos.smugmug.com/Base/Mics/i-WbjbQgd/0/e61a52bc/O/IMG_1922s.jpg width=640 height=480 this is for a Generac Impact 36lp plus- model 0009411 which translates to a 941-1 (tag says item #-last 4 digits are model), there are manuals for most.

RE: Gray Water not empty, only 1 gate valve

A lot of sites list the Sixpac grey and black tank capacities as 38 gallon for each-however its the same tank. Why there is a separate monitor for 2 waste tanks puzzling-unless they are measuring also same tank, one stuck? Cant imagine though 2 sets of sensors (what usually fouls) on same tank. Could mark, switch leads on monitor see if it changes, if it doesnt change monitor suspect, if it does change not sure what that would tell, your still at square 1. If there was some kind of one way valve on grey line it could be stuck- but capacity would be severely limited as only be between in pipe? Never heard of one, sounds like a good idea. But simplest, Id also empty tank, pour measured amount down grey see if it comes out.

RE: Dometic RM3663 Fridge

Thanks Old-Biscuit, I disconnect the wires for J2 and the fridge works, however, the 20A fuse on the DC circuit board still lights up. Both the AC power is good at J5 and J6 are good and the proper DC voltage 13V is at J4. I did notice that the previous owner removed the DC heater element as there is nothing connected to J1. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement 12v heater element? As to the 12 heater will be tough to find- its not being hooked up would have no effect on fridge working (or not) on gas or AC. IF its still there you can test ohms to see if good. The indicator on fuse panel lit up, on P/D replacement converter fuse board- fuse pilots should only come on if fuse blown or removed? I looked at older thread that shows your converter. Noted 20 amp fuse, mine is 30 amp for fridge but I also noted its on fuse slot #1. I doubt have any effect on issues but on our P/D converter the first 2 fuse slots are intended for low voltage use? I didn't use the 1st 2 fuse slots and wiring/fuses all is shifted over.

RE: mounting extra brake lights on 1.5” struts, NO drilling.

https://i.imgur.com/R65N9Aj.jpg Likely not making contact to metal or the hitch itself isn't grounded due to the powder coating. Could try to touch ground wire to the larger bolt just to see if its making contact. Why 'they' told you cant use trucks ground wire beyond me, less why recommending 12ga. I gather the included harness does not have a continuous ground wire, short pigtail at both ends, otherwise you'd simply plug it into a 4pin connector. If the ground wire from light will reach, tap existing ground wire. Alternatively and what I'd do, you could run a wire between both light ground pigtails to white ground pigtail at plug making it continuous from lights to plug, so when plugged in wala you have ground, no bolting.

RE: mounting extra brake lights on 1.5” struts, NO drilling.

3m tape I use-https://www.amazon.com/3M-3614-15/dp/B002JOVUO0 alot. Only because its available most auto parts to put your hands on. Tenacious stuff. The lights though unsure as the back doesn't appear its flat enough to tape? very simular housing https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071FGC2JS/ appears same light box, a bit cheaper, LED and semi sealed.

RE: Dometic RM3663 Fridge

I would start by unplugging the light power wire at control board, J2. Puzzling that it would short only when light on because the power wire to it is always hot? switch closed only grounds the bulb... Not the problem though may have caused it (or still). As far as house power unplug the fridge verify 110 wiring/receptacle good. Then its testing..manual http://bryantrv.com/docs2/docs/servtips.pdf has some limited testing you can do.

RE: Time to Develop a Solution for Scissor Stairs (Bigfoots)

I thought the leveling legs were a good idea but also looked like a tripping hazard. Likely getting a bit off OPs topic so Ill refer to other thread where I reworked our levelers (3 times). I also saw as tripping hazard.https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/29543078.cfm. Simplest, just unbolting which helps, is swapping levelers left for right to place tubes further outboard instead in front of treads. Making spacers replacing bolts-minor fab, can be moved even further. Also improves/shortens stored hang-down if T/Ls Stow-N-Go storage bracket used.

RE: Happijac rear bumper mounts

Curious etrailer does list the rears. rear - https://www.etrailer.com/Camper-Tie-Downs/TorkLift/TLC3215.html front/rear - https://www.etrailer.com/tiedown-2015_GMC_Sierra+3500.htm?fUrl=-pm-TorkLift Their site not the easiest to navigate. Default browsing shows fronts or front & rear. Do you have running boards? Thats the only thing I found that directs to no listings on etrailers site as T/L indeed does not make front mounts for your truck if it has running boards. Torklift doesn't sell anything directly to consumers, only thru vendors.

RE: 1998 11M Fleetwood Caribou

I have manual for 2001 Fleetwood, it is what was came with all models. Very generic but should be similar for a 98. The sales brochure list capacities and features for the different models. All in PDF format if helpful- https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/196Y55vE9NboK7jEscUGWT-RAah2WXypG?usp=sharing

RE: Electrical Short Under Sink on 2019 1062 Lance

What do those round plastic covers hide? If that interior box removable might give more room. https://www.fototime.com/%7B4BE45629-1515-4DFA-BAEE-3A4921D018A1%7D/sspict/640/exp=f&modt=44155.8479783102&ssdyn=1/8_DSC06914112020.jpg height=480 width=640 Can't imagine cabinet face frame removable without some de-construction. But I'd also be inclined to pull new wire.

RE: Leg supports for truck camper storage

There are made made leg extensions with different means to attach, yield 6-8" length. Happijacs style that bolt to existing jack pad or Atwood style where you cut off pad and leg inserts into ext and pins (like tongue jack foot). Easy to fab if you have means. /.etrailer.com HappiJac 182495 /amazon Atwood 40302

RE: Time to Develop a Solution for Scissor Stairs (Bigfoots)

IF the angle of individual treads differs when deployed- stairs have problem, they shouldn't. Increasing the distance between treads (lessening the number) certainly wouldn't make easier to use. Older thread-same issue on B/F camper. https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/27151303.cfm Owner going to repair though ended up replacing, may give some ideas if trying to fix. Adding second bar good idea. Landing whole project in itself. But if you can fix stairs more could be devoted to landing. Lowering landing to bottom of camper would make that last or top step into/out of camper- pretty tall.

RE: 1977 Sunline Truck Camper FULL BUILD

Hesitant to comment as I'm impressed with the getting it done progress your making but question the right angle gravity fresh fill hose. It looks like its going to be painfully slow to fill tank? Replacement trough type are still available https://www.amazon.com/s?k=B00C88B1X2 though style with screw on cap/hatch lid helps keep clean. Also allows insertion of short hose into fill hose to take water quicker. but you'd need a straight shot on fill hose... Is this how set up on old camper? Your inverter set up is awesome, other than whatever you want, way beyond what I could imagine needing to run.

RE: loosing old members

Thanks for finding that. Those old forum names bring back a lot of memories. I know there is a newer one, but I still can't find it. I think I may have started the thread, maybe 4 or 5 years ago.???? Looking for something else and this popped up link to the missing 'newer' 10 year member list 05/2012 https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/26057577.cfm and the older 2007 list https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/19619063.cfm
