RE: bathroom fan

We had a MaxxFan 1200T on our MH. We traded it for a new MH, I went to get a new MaxxFan 1200T to put on our MH and found they are no longer made. Anyone know of a used one available? Sure would like one. Dusty

RE: 110 outlets

Thought a GFI to start with. Onle one we have is in the bathroom...all other outlets are kinda like daisy-changed to the one and only GFI. And no power at the first2 double beakers in the panel. Have checked all connections so far. All worked in the morning before we left one rv park and got to another one and then the problem appeared. Guess I should pull every outlet and check the wires since the GFI will not reset. The GFI needs to have power to it, in order to be able to be reset it. \

RE: Will fridge run off tow vehicle on batts on TT?

There are some vehicles that the engine runs on propane. Show the law that states that it is not legal to have propane on and in use while driving.

RE: Quality Question about Small Inverters

We have a 150 Watt from Stanley, in our motto home, that keeps our two Apple laptop computers charged and our home phone base charged. It uses the cell phone signal. Dusty

RE: Bathroom roof vent knob too short. Can't reach?

My wife uses a hollow steel broom handle with the top end out of it.

RE: What can I use to get water out of a gas tank

Get a small gas engine eg lawn mower, edger, etc. connect the muffler to a small flex pipe. Flex conduit is fine. Secure it into the opening of the tank. Start motor. Weld. The CO from the motor pushes the o2 out so no explosion. Seen it done many times at the welding shop near where I grew up. X-2

Suburban Oven

The Suburban oven in our Itasca. The oven and pilot light both go out while things are being baked, thus not completely getting baked. Does something need cleaning, or do we need a new part? Thanks, Dusty

RE: furnace fan

The Hi limit switch on my Atwood furnace is normally CLOSED, opens when overtemp condition. From the Atwood service manual; The limit switch is an in line safety device which protects the furnace from any over heating conditions. The contacts in the limit switch open at a given temperature setting, shutting off power to the valve And most likely it only turns of the burner, and lets the fan to keep running to cool down the heat exchanger.

RE: Newbie to do first outing

In 30 years we have only once needed road service, two flat tires, changed the first one myself, then a second one down the road a ways. Called a local place in that area, and the fee was very reasonable, paid him and went on our way.

RE: Winegard Powered Antenna Wall Plate Alternative

Cross Posting with Facebook and other forums. I finally broke down and decided to find out why. I bought a cable/data test meter, hooked it up and it showed a short in the wall plate. I ordered a new one through Amazon. I decided to test the new one before installation and it showed a short also. Now, my question is does anyone have an alternative brand to take the place of Winegard junk? He say's he tested it before he hooked it up. Maybe it's the new tester.

RE: Generator Placement questions

Become a member of PassPort America (1/2 price camping) and forget about parking lots. It's not considered proper etiquette to use a generator, open your slides or awning or use you BBQ and lawn chairs while over-nighting at Walmarts, truck stops and rest areas. And don't use the storm drains to empty your tanks either! IF you get away with it, you're only ruining it for the next poor sap wanting a few hours of rest. Many places that used to allow over-nighting no longer allowing it because of the objectionable behavior of a few miscreants. And besides, at an RV park, the kids can run and play - maybe get a shower and clean up while you're there. X-2

RE: Washer/Dryer + bunk beds + 2 AC's... does it exist?

Winnebago/Itasca have held up very well for me. They use a fiberglass roof.

RE: Holding tank monitor panel replacement

Google, seelevel rv tank monitor. This is a whole new monitor system that is rather easy to install and to me is better than what comes on new in new rv's. Dusty

RE: Great new electrical connectors

The last I knew the only place that a splice/joints, are allowed, not in an assessable box, is under ground. Dusty

RE: Question about Onan Generator

If it was just the fuel pump that lost power, the generator engine would continue to run until the carb bowl ran empty. Dusty

RE: Impossible RV specs... Help!

We have a 2017, Itasca Spirt 27q that we bought new in Aug. 2017. That has a permanent, walk around, Queen Bed. We put a thicker short mattress on it. Thicker so it was more comfortable, and a Short Queen, so it is easier to get past the end of it. It is long enough of us. It has a slide for just the dinette. Also the sheets in the cab of the E-450, swivel around to use in the coach. But the cab floor is 3-1/2-in. lower than the coach floor. And the shower is rathe small. Dusty
