RE: Electrical problem

Check that voltage under load.

RE: Has anyone added an extra water tank to RV roof

Because water is a liquid it does not spread it's weight equal but if there is a point that a little lower or weaker it will put more of it's weight there.

RE: Onan Marquis 5500 put out too much voltage

Check the RPM the engine is putting out and find out how many RPM it's rated at.

RE: Black Tank Roof Vent and Bathroom Roof Vent Too Close?

Try an RV Venturi Vent cap/top on your black tank vent and/or gray tank vent. That fixed that problem on our '88 Mallard's black tank.

RE: Hood Cover for Ford E450

In '88 we got caught in a hail storm in our new Mallard. There were a lot of dings in the aluminum roof and a couple on the E-350 hood. Over time those dings leveled out some and the ones in the hood almost disappeared, you had to look to find them. Dusty

RE: Onan Generator Start Motor Continues to Run

Do you also have a start-stop switch in side your mh? If so does that inside switch O.K. ?

RE: shower head

My problem has been that our shower head has a valve on it, which I want, but they drizzle, when closed, which allows the hose to fill with cold water. What I have done is go to Tractor Supply and in their farm/field sprayer area they have 1/2" National Pipe Tapper, NPT, to threaded Garden Hose fittings. This would be, female pipe to male garden hose, and female garden hose to male pipe. Take the shower head off the hose, Put the adaptors on the hose and head then put a garden hose valve on the hose then the head on the hose valve. Now the when you turn the garden hose valve off, it will not drizzle, and the water temperature will hardly change.

RE: Is it OK to mix battery types??

After we had had our mh for a couple of years, that only had one battery, I wanted to add a second battery. So I added a double throw switch, which allowed me to use only battery at a time and switched them every day. But paralleled them while driving to charge them. That kept them rather equally charged, and worked fine.

RE: The one thing I hate working on is...

Of all the trades i like electrical the most. Usually lightweight. More about thinking and testing. Don't get very dirty. That maybe true for a maintance electrican, but you ought to try industrial/commercial construction. Dusty

RE: Fighting local zoning ordinances that hurt RV owners

The enforcement people are only doing the job they were hired to do. The people the make the rules are elected by the people.

RE: slide vs no slide

I read, many years ago, that the slide is #1/at the top of the list of things to give trouble. Most likely they have improved a lot, but I'll bet that they are still at the top. We had avoided having a slide until 2012, when we bought a new mh, and I figured by that time it would be hard to find a new mh without a slide. We just made sure that when we were on the road we could stop and spend the night in it without putting the slide out. Our slide is just the dinette, and it does give more room. But the mh is useable without the slide out. Dusty

RE: Water heater keeps stopping

I went to help a guy once when his water heater would not stay lit/light right, it seems that he had forgotten change the water valves from water heater bypass to flow through water heater.

RE: Most dont sanitize water heater?

I have found from servicing home water heaters, that its the anode rod going bad that is the cause of the rotten egg smell.

RE: Flat Leaf Springs- Replacement Required?

But what are the axels themselves rated at? They maybe the same as the springs.

RV toilet

We are having a problem with our toilet, it leaks fresh water into the bowl. It's an Aqua-Magic Residence by Thetford. This is our 3rd MH and it's not 5 years old yet. Our other 2 MHs were each 13 years old when we replaced them. And never had a problem with the toilets, and don't remember what make and model they were. Has anyone here had a problem with theirs? We are wondering from others experience of ones to avoid. Thanks, Dusty

RE: Atwood water heater burnt 110v wire

Went to check a water heater for a guy, he said that that on electric it wasn't heating the water, and on gas it would not stay lit. I found that the water was on by-pass.

RE: Class C’s with lots of windows

We had an 01 Itasca 24 V that had the dinette in the back right corner and had a nice window on both the side and rear.
