RE: Mirror replacement

Dale, these old motorhomes are not built like regular houses and I worry about any stress on the body such as those rear spare tires. On a previous Chieftain, I just had the awning removed thinking of the weight drag on my long trips out in the windy west. My two trips out west and back were so perfect that I know it is the passion of our enjoyment of them that makes all the work worthwhile. Doug

RE: Mirror replacement

On closer look, it was just the swing arm with the mirror that broke off clean leaving the support on the rv and the stud remaining. I guess it was just a clean break at the weld. Also I did find all the part stuff underneath. Future project. Do you remember, Scottiemom what the labor was on that? Mine may be different with a break off and me cutting the wire. Doug

Mirror replacement

This morning my heavy velvac right mirror broke off where the unit cements to a little 3' stub leaving a 4" pipe protruding down. Sorry still no good with pictures.As heavy as that unit is I can envision great difficulty trying to cement it or a new one back on. Are there much lighter units available ( this is a 04 minnie class C. Perhaps that would not be cement but a weld. I had to cut the wire so I could prevent it just dangling. Wondering what sort of money I will be getting into? Doug in Durham

RE: Propane shut off valve opens on its own

Mugirardo, it is a chrome book so just using a keyboard. Just now I typed an M and it wanted to jump back to the front of your name. On a previous post I hit the insert sign above the 6 and it deleted the whole paragraph that I had written. if getting a new chrome book eliminates these problems For Good I will do it. Doug

RE: Propane shut off valve opens on its own

All good info. i did use the furnace this winter to avoid too low temps in rv. It seemed like the propane emptied out faster than last year. Good idea on disconnecting while doing rust removal and repainting of tank. Doug

RE: Propane shut off valve opens on its own

Grit dog, gennset was removed but drive could have caused it. So even if it is opening on its own, you are saying the leak detector going off is a down system issue. The tank is basically empty right now. If there is a tiny amount in it would it be unsafe to try a stove top burner? And in fact should I open it up to see if that leak detector comes back on? Doug

RE: Propane shut off valve opens on its own

Grit dog, my biggest problem is with my computer, as I will type out a paragraph and the unit will delete everything I just wrote or write back over what I am writing. I live alone and know little about computers. I say all to explain why I am not more verbose about issues. I may have bigger issues with my lp system. I am still checking to see if the valve closure was an error or it takes weeks to slowly open on its own. my 04,24 ft winnie stays in my driveway and I like to drive it once a week. I am doing various proejects such as recaulking and now rust removal from undercarriage. Doug

RE: Propane shut off valve opens on its own

Skibane, i was sure i had turned it off and came back later to find it open most of a turn. I THINK this happened twice. However, since I last closed it all the way this has not repeated. i will just have to keep checking it. I am not using it now but in the winter it seemed like the propane was being used up fast. i did have some beeping on a very old leak detector relative to this recent discovery of the partially opened valve. Either I was careless or it opens on its own gradually. i definitely will be getting a new kidde multi gas detector soon. Doug

Propane shut off valve opens on its own

On my motorhome ( perm. tank), I discoveed that my shut off valve opens back up partially after having been closed earlier. Is this an easy - simple relacement? Expensive? Doug

Level rv-refrigerator

Does my motorhome need to be level regrding the refrigerator if it is not being used? Doug

RE: More asme tank questions

I'did see it bolted to an iron plate, I think. Maybe some weld too, I will look at it tomorrow morning again. Maybe it is rusted from inside out. I'm going to get a mobile tech out and get advice and probably have him remove it. Because of my acid reflux I cannot work under the vehicle. I want to have that rear mud flat removed because it prevents air from flowing from the back to help keep the underside dry. ( while under my rv carport) It appears to be bolted and that Doug

More asme tank questions

Has anyone taken their asme tank out? Or have you watched one taken out? I have yet to find that on youtube. Secondly, how can there be rust under the paint on my tank. The paint looks very intact yet if I scale it off there is rust underneath. Doug

RE: Revisiting rust on propane tank

Unfortunately, I discovered today that all the paint hides rust beneath it. I will save up for a new one. I was hoping until then if a tech could set the lp situation up so that I could just plug in one of those mobile tanks. Doug

RE: Revisiting rust on propane tank

Not a portable tank. Thanks for the replies. Doug

RE: Revisiting rust on propane tank

Jax, I will take your advice and get surface rust off and put proper follow up rust protections on. Onan tech who removed my old no good genset told me the frame rust was only surface rust. Doug

Revisiting rust on propane tank

If I wire brush rust on my tank but do not arrive at bare metal but more rust, I must either arrive at bare metal or prepare to " invade the tank" as^not arriving at bare metal means I am about to puncture through. I have not gotten that far but think this might happen. LP is turned off and if this happens obviously I will discard tank. Doug
