RE: Accumulator installation

What kind of pressure do you have in the tank when empty? Try adjusting it. If I remember right pre-set pressure in tank should be 2lb. below pump turn on pressure.

Would it help to bring the slide in with the engine running?

RE: RV outlets reliable?

That type of electric receptacle/outlet is used in mobile homes as well as RV's. The boxes that regular outlets and switches are installed in are sized by the size and number of wires that are in that box. One can check the National Electrical Code to see what size is needed. There are few places in an RV that there would be room for standard outlet with the required box.

RE: 2014 Atwood Helium fridge not working. Freezer works though?

It might be that the cooling coils are only in the freezer and the fridge is cooled by a vent from the freezer which might blocked/plugged.

RE: Dangerous?

I was working on a construction job once, was pushing a guy around on a small work platform that had a battery powered hydraulic lift. He was welding brackets up to hang light fixtures from. It had been a long day, more than 8 hours, and the battery was weak. Sparks fell down from him welding, and landed on the battery, there was a few very small explosions, pop,pop,pop, the battery cell caps popped off.

RE: Hot water heater drain

A trick I've used to clean the internal pipe threads is to take a short piece of threaded pipe and cut 2 or 3 slots across the threads, with a hack saw or a cutoff wheel.

Our '15 Escape, one push on the remote unlocks the drivers door, two pushes and all doors unlock.

RE: Parallel batteries and a question regarding reserve capacity

Check your TV. Many of them plug into 120v receptacle but have a wall wart and the tv is 12v dc.

RE: Series, then Parallel or Parallel then Series?

I always looked at it this way. Two 6v batteries is series may give a you more power but if one battery dies while you are out in the boonies, you are out of power. But if you are using 2-12v batteries in parallel and one dies, you can keep going, you just need to run your generator more often. Dusty

RE: Adding a second awning.

I needed to fasten an awing arm once in an area of the wall that only had foam insulation in it. I drilled a hole where a screw was going to be, then used an Allen wrench or a bent wire and cleared out a cavity then squired in epoxy. After it set I drilled a hole in it for the screw. Worked very well, had that mh for many years, it never failed.

RE: Attaching screws to aluminum floor joists

Perhaps insert plastic concrete anchors in the aluminum and then the screws into the plastic anchors.

RE: Dewinterizing issue

We had an Itasca 24V with the rear dinette. If that is what yours is, under the rear dinette seat is the fresh awarder tank, coming out of the side at the bottom is a line with a valve, push pull if I remember right, that is the tank drain, and a line goes from that drain vale threw the floor.

RE: Generator - LP or Diesel?

One good thing about propane, if you don't use the generator very often, propane will not evaporate and gum up the carburetor.

RE: Question about rear Dining/Living/Bed

One thing about using the crows nest. Be sure that the rungs/steps on the ladder are about 2 inches wide not just pipe rungs even if they are flattened some they are hard on bare feet. Dusty

When I get that message I hit the back button then do a double click.

RE: Rent a tow dolly?

There are a couple different types of tow dollies. I would prefer the type made by Demco.

RE: Portable air compressor advice is needed

I carry a 12 volt in each of our vehicles. There are a little to find but I get the ones that you can set the pressure needed and it will turn off at set pressure.

RE: adding fireplace

How many amps will the electric fire place draw, and what size breaker feeds the AC? Dusty

RE: adding fireplace

I put in a toe kick electric heater, It's really a small electric furnace, and hook it to the same breaker as the air conditioner, that may sound strange but you are not gong to run them both at the same time. As long as the electric fire place uses about the same amount of amps as the ac, not more than 80% of the breaker, it will be fine.
