RE: Newbie in trouble, cleaned ac filter cover won’t go back on

It usually has to do with the way the plastic shroud fits between the metal sides, it can be frustrating, but it will fit. I wish I had a secret to it, but sadly...

RE: Hot Water Tanks with Anode Rods

The tanks are sprayed and fired, then the flame cup is welded in. It’s this final weld that needs protection. The tank corrodes because of the action of heating the water, not just being wet.

RE: Newbie in trouble, cleaned ac filter cover won’t go back on

Take it off and put it back on, slide it over the shafts, put the front screw in, but just get it started, not tight, then put the back one on, but make sure you can push it up tight first.

RE: Issues with Dometic Blizzard NXT

Are the dealers recommended by Dometic? Have you been there while they tested it, and did it misbehave? I take it you full time in it, you might get a recommendation for a mobile tech from Dometic, so they can come when it is not working. If you take it in and everything works, it’s impossible to diagnose- often problems like this will be rf interference, which go away when in the shop. And hate to say it, but a “real” AC tech wouldn’t have a clue, that’s why they call guys like me for these units.

RE: A/C compressor will not shut off

The relay on the circuit board is welded closed- he can try whacking it sharply, but it probably needs replacing.

RE: Furnace pops breaker after 30 seconds.

If it’s the Atwood/Hydroflame 8500 series, either the breaker is bad or the blower motor is going. You can unplug the breaker and plug a 15 amp fuse in place. If it’s a bad breaker, that will work and be safe.

RE: The Wide Open West - an Example

We had a 1960 VW bus (bought new) that had no fuel gauge, just a two pickup system so you ran out and pulled the knob out for another gallon or so, around 100 miles. My Dad quickly learned to write down the mileage so he knew how much gas was left- in the ‘60s services were even more sparse!

RE: Lithium batteries high for Stepwell, will they start genny?

Are you getting batteries with the Battery Management System built in? Lithium are tops, but you don’t really just drop them in usually. I really would look at AGM.

RE: Propane fill for parked motorhome?

It’s called an extend-a-stay kit, goes between the frame mounted tank and regulator, and is a “T” with an inlet for a standard lp pigtail. Otherwise, if you have flexible line after the regulator, your regulator and pol fitting will fit a standard lp cylinder, even though it is the old left hand thread.

RE: elec test help on Onan gen

You can certainly jump to the battery input on the genset, and don’t forget to jump the ground as well. You can also just measure the voltage while trying to crank. But, don’t really understand starter engage disengage. Does it run and not crank the genset? That’s usually a broken part in the starter, but some models are more prone than others.

RE: Help! Power Converter stopped charging batteries.

As others have said, good time to upgrade, but if you want to try to fix what you have all of the manuals and info can be found at http://parallaxpower.com/archived-tech-docs/, scroll down to 6300 series.

RE: Vintage TT needs stabilizing, but stumped

Jack stands, one at each corner. Crank the tongue down a bit, put stands under the rear, crank it up a bit past level, put stands under front,

RE: Got acid on my roof.

How bad does the old material look? Is it cracked at all? You might get away with just keeping an eye on it until you can do the whole roof.

RE: Pressure regulator at source vs. destination

If that pressure is after the Watts regulator then it has failed. I had to replace mine because it had failed so I am surprised you haven't blown out a toilet fill valve or something. No, it’s after the gauge, which is “street pressure” After unhooking the hose from the faucet and discovering that night the pressure regulator was still on the faucet back at the campground, I now put the pressure regulator on the RV end. I have yet to see a hose burst, and a couple cheap hoses are still less than a good adjustable pressure regulator. That’s my experience. You find a lot of regulators in campgrounds.

RE: Mystery with Suburban furnace

Limit switch just shuts the burner, but once it cools off, the burner will reignite.

RE: Help with electrical please

I would start by putting a charger on the battery- my money is on bad converter, as most modern converters would power the rig even with a bad battery.

RE: Rather Intersting Relay

Found this in a recent sale flyer, if anyone is looking for cheap 12v 30a relays. OMRON isn't Panasonic but it's up there in terms of relay quality. https://www.goldmine-elec-products.com/images/G20827B.JPG width=300 Image from Goldmine 10 of em for $7.49 Electronic Goldmine That’s pretty much the exact relay used on many air conditioner control boards for the compressor.
