RE: Help with noise on trailer axle

I've seen/heard the u-bolts that hold/clamp the springs to the axel loose jingle.

Engine battery power loss

Engine battery power loss when not in use. And not plugged in, to 120v. We have an Itasca on a 2014 E-450 that for the last while the engine battery will run down over night. When the ground cable from the battery is unhooked there is 0.2 volt from unhooked cable to it's battery post. This is without the RV being plugged in. Anyone else had this problem? Where do I start to look to fix it? Going to put a battery switch on it for now. Dusty

RE: Class C driver/passenger seats

I took some angle irons and raised the cab seats for when we set for the winter, in the land of warm weather and sunshine. Dusty

RE: uneven tire wear

I bought a new tandem axel trailer and after pulling it many miles discovered that the u-bolts on one end of one axel were very loose, which caused bad tire wear.

RE: Parasitic current draw on tow vehicle

It's been my understanding that newer vehicles draw a little power to maintain computers that are used within them. Dusty

RE: Generator Repair

Turn the mixture screw all the way in then back it out 1 - 1/2 turns. Then dump out the old gas and put fresh gas in it; including draining the carb. Little shot of ether may help get it running. Kind of hard to dump propane/LP fuel.

RE: ALDE heating and water heating system. Comments welcome.

If you add air conditioning to that, be sure to include dehumidifying also. Dusty

Most mh the generator gas pick up tube does not go below 1/4 tank.

RE: Onan 4000 generator cranks but won't start

When you checked the spark plug, did you also check for compression? It takes 3 things to make a gasoline engine engine work, compression-fuel-spark.

RE: Dometic AC Fan Not Working

Is there power going to the fan motor when it is supposed to be running? Perhaps you have a bad relay.

RE: 2008 Holiday Rambler Augusta fresh water pump locatio

I like to take a tank that is used in a home hot water heating system, and install it in the fresh water system in out mh. It smoothes out water system vary nicely. Those tanks have a bladder in them, so they can be installed laying on there side, which makes it easy to anckor down. Dusty

RE: Should Be Simple But..

There's a check valve between where the park water hooks, and where it hooks to the the RV water system, the leak between those two points.

RE: Max Air Vent Cover Maintenance

I put a MaxxAir 1200T on our MH. That was the one that had about an 145* arc, which would not allow rain in. We traded that MH for a new one, and I went to get a new MaxxAir 1200T to put on the new MH and found that they were no longer made. Wish I could find a good used one.

RE: Tire engineering question.

Anyone ever check how accrete their tire pressure gauge is? I have several gages and one reads quit a bit different than the others. I believe that heat can cause quite a bit of damage to a tire, and load and speed cause heat. So when one duel blows and you drive slower because you are running with a blown tire, that helps the good one make it.

RE: Looking for end all be all air pump

I've found that things that need a lot of air at low pressure, a vac that has a place to hook the hose to so you can use the out put air to blow up things like an air mattress works much better that an air compress of that kind of job.

RE: 2004 Tioga 23E water pump

A couple of ours have been next to the water storage tank under the the bed. The mattress lays on plywood which lifts up and uncovers the tank and pump. I like to add a small water pressure tank to the system which lets the pump turn less often and run longer when it does turn on. Prevents the short bursts, like when flushing the toilet.

RE: Armoured extension cord

I wonder if what is being are calling a galvanized neutral is in instead aluminum.
Dusty R 07/05/21 12:49pm Tech Issues
RE: Armoured extension cord

Oh perfect!! You already have wire run in conduit over there. You should be able to get a standard 15a receptacle on that. Depending on conduit size he might be able to pull thicker wire and give you a 30a setup. If you ever wanted to run heaters and stuff come winter 30a would be awesome. If you post a picture of your service panel people here might be able to give advice on what to do. It could be really easy to put that outside junction box on its own 15 or 20a breaker. So its not sharing power with the house. I had to do that back home. We plug the trailer into the garage outlets. But it kept tripping the breaker. So i gave 1 outlet its own dedicated 20a breaker. The breaker was already there. Just had to swap wires around. Ideally that outside junction box is already on its own circuit. Like you said it will be cheap to add an outlet right there. Have you pulled the cover and taken a peek? Hopefully its not low voltage wire for outdoor lighting. If it looks like speaker wire then he will have to pull new wire. When you switched wires around. I hope that you didn't put #14 wires on a 20 amp breaker.

RE: Do newer Winnie Minnies (2015+) have leak issues?

We had had leaks in our 2001 Itasca, but not our 2014 Itasca.

RE: GFI Breaker

GFI = Ground Fault Interrupter Is what they were called when they first came out/were required. GFCI = Ground Fault Current is what they are now called, there maybe a slight difference. A GFCI receptacle is most often the first receptacle on a circuit then all the other receptacle down the line are also GFCI protected, if properly wired. Actually GFCI means ground fault circuit interrupter. They do not trip on over current. They trip if there is a ground fault (basically an abnormal leak of current to ground) in that circuit, as little as 5 ma. Thanks for correcting my mistake, and adding how they work. That 5 ma. is so small that it can travel through you trip the power and you will not feel it.
