RE: Anyone recognize this control panel?

For information the bottom wire on the TANK for the sensor is common. The wires going up fare for levels. since all are lit, should indicates tank is full or the sensors are dirty, which is a common problem. A test would be is to disconnect bottom wire and see what indicators do. If they all go out, dirty sensors. Electronics tech in last sensor? Sounds almost familiar be a retired engineer from farther back! It's been a long time but I changed ours to Sea-Level, which work very well, no false readings.

RE: cheap solar panels

I once read that Michigan is the 47th in the 48 Continnetnal States of available Sunshine. So how long does it take to pay for a Solar set up here in Michigan? Is there any info posted on all areas on of how long it takes for Solar Panels pay for themselves?

RE: Voltage Drop - NOT Park Problem

I believe that 120 volts is considered the standard. So 120 x .03 = 3.6, 129-3.6= 116.4 volts, which is the minimum.

RE: Voltage Drop - NOT Park Problem

Maybe try a heat sensor, and check the entire path that the current will flow.

RE: Norcold fridge - clogged drain tube?

Maybe an electric heat gun. Be careful don't let it get too hot and melt some of the plastic refrigerator parts.

RE: Pump Silencing & Accumulator

I've done that also. Now the pump does not run every time the toilet is flushed.

RE: How does this work? TV antenna

It's missing a crank & dial, that cranks up the antenna and turns it, it's directional, if I'm remembering right.

RE: Solar power

I read once that Michigan rank 47th out of the 48 continental states of available sunshine. Which makes me wonder if Solar panels are worth using here in Michigan?

Two step ladders, one on each of hood, then a plank on the ladders over the hood.

RE: Toad tail lights not working

Check fuses on MH. I think that travel tail fuse different than break & turn signal.

RE: Water heater temperature

It's been a long time, but I think I changed one once to a lower temperature setting. Removed and put in a different thermostat.

RE: Tornado flush added to black waste tank...

I unhooked the probs and installed electronic sensors, they give % instead of thirds, and are accurate.

RE: Leak near Valve/Tank Connection

The SeeLeval is a system that circuit boards that attach/glue to the side of the tanks and measure the level/densaty of the tank, in 10's .

RE: Leak near Valve/Tank Connection

Take a look at SeeLeval gauges for RV holding tanks. The read in much more accurate. If I remember right 10's of the tanks. Not very hard to install.

RE: Atwood water heater drain plug tightening

I don't remember make or type of water heater, but a I put a quarter turn valve on our mh water heater, then all I have to do is open the valve to drain it. Down side, can't close cover with drain open.

RE: 7 pin cable

I would use crimp butt splicers and Heat Shrink insulation tubbing. :R Rookie mistake. Crimps work best with proper quality crimping tool, very few people have the proper crimping tool and substitute pliers and crush the connection making a very poor and unreliable connection. Additionally, standard heatshrink tubing is not weather proof or water tight and moisture will destroy the connections hidden inside the tubing. Not to mention the average backyard electrician won't have a good heat gun and will use matches or a lighter to shrink the tubing making a mess of the job.. For heatshrink tubing to work in the outdoors you must get adheasive lined tubing, it has a heat activated glue that surrounds and seals around the wire insulation making a good water and weather tight seal.. But, a good electrician will try to avoid allowing connections to be exposed to weather which means taking the connections back to the original connection box which is protected from the weather. Inside that box, the connections are made with wire nuts, no need to reinvent the wheel. Just use the existing wire nuts inside that box and all will be fine. True, but I do have the proper tool. I'm a retired construction electrician. And if I remember right, a box is required when the voltage is above 35 volts. On a trailer a box collects road salt and rusts.
