RE: My wife is gonna kill me, please help

Check to see if you have a gfi plug that may have tripped. Can you see where it plugs in if so just plug a 110 volt light into the socket to make sure you have power to the plug.

RE: I need help removing my broken water heater drain plug

As I recall talking with Attwood you want to ONLY use the nylon plug. It is also used as a safety device designed to blow out if pressure gets too high. I know that's what the pressure relief valve is for. Just say that's what I heard for an Atwood rep.

RE: Clicking sound when engine starting

Take a set of jumper cables hook the neg post on the battery to the frame to ground it and try starting it if the clicking go away you have a ground problem. Fought this problem on friends MH in St George Utah in July in 105 temps. Turned out to be a bad ground cable.

RE: 2022 Tiffin - F-53 Chassis - Brakes

Take it for a few drives and try to avoid any hard braking, just heat the rotors and let them cool to seat in the new pads.

RE: Trouble with leaking around toilet flange

On a friends MH his toilets pipe fit in the black tank with a ring gasket it was not glued into the black tank. The ring on his split and he had to install a new one. So if yours over flowed and didn't come into the bathroom area just over the black tank it may be the same.

RE: Water pump off/on switch inside RV

Their maybe more than one inside, there are two in my MH one in the bathroom and the other one on the panel that has the read outs for the tanks, (water, black tank and gray tank along with propane). I have also seen water pump switches by the kitchen sink. Hit a few switches and you should hear the pump running open the water at the sink when you have the shore water turned off or not connected and you will hear the pump or water start flowing as long as the fresh water tank has water in it.

Post a note here and see if anyone in the area of where the RV is is willing to take drive by to see if it's worth having an inspector take a look at. Someone may up to take a look at it for you.

RE: First Time

Also remember you don't need to hook up the water and sewer hose all the time you pull into a site. Just fill the fresh water tank and use it till you need to refill it. And drain the gray and black tanks as they fill up. This will save you time when you want to take off for the day sight seeing. The electric you may want to hook up each night if the site has electricity, will let you use the microwave and A/C if you have it. When you hook up the sewer hose drain a little gray water first to make sure connections are not leaking, then shut the gray, and drain the black tank then the gray tank to flush out the sewer have. Have fun

RE: Replacing day/night shades

I replaced mine with blinds not as dark at night but I can get shade and open the window at the same time and get a breeze.

RE: oil leak

Engine oil does not flow through the AC compressor so if it is leaking from the compressor it is fluid used for the AC.

RE: Tow Bar Not Locking?

When you pull legs out they lock into place. When you push the lever down on each leg the legs are able to be pushed back into the arms. The Tow bar is rebuildable and you can get parts on line. If no major part is broken. Blue Ox will no longer recondition a tow bar over 7 years old at RV shows any more. Use to have mine redone at Quartzsite every 2 years

RE: disappointing info for Jeep Trailhawk flat tow

Well if it's front wheel drive you may be able to use a remco lube pump for auto trans front wheel drive cars.

RE: disappointing info for Jeep Trailhawk flat tow

The Remco driveline disconnect is now Superior Drivelines.

RE: disappointing info for Jeep Trailhawk flat tow

You could also go the route of a driveshaft disconnect. Now that you're so far into everything for flat towing would be cheaper than getting something else to flat tow and set everything up again.

RE: Day night shade replacement suggestions?

X3 mini blinds an added plus you can get air flow with mini blinds you can't get with shades.

RE: water heater drain mod

I read some where that the nylon Atwood plug was also a safety device. And to always use the plug. I hope you fitting doesn't react with the metal in the heater and seize up in the opening making it unable to ever come out.
