RE: Refrigerator replacement

The 2872 according to specs is: 1" higher, 3/8" wider, 1/2" deeper Depends on if it is a DM-2852, or a DM-2852 "Americana"

RE: Protection from freezing

If it was up to me (my Itasca came with whatever Winnebago used), I would only "install and trust" UltraHeat (12V) pad heaters on my tanks: https://www.ultraheat.com/the-backstory His are supposedly still all american made.

RE: Laptop battery stored in a cold car...?

Yes,remove from laptop. Learned that the hard way. Perhaps not all will have a parasitic drain, but most I have been around do.

RE: Automatic air tank drain valves

Now, unless federal laws have changed, if you have no manual drains on your primary and secondary tanks, then you MUST have a 3rd tank,a wet tank, first in line from the pressure from the air compressor, and it will have a manual valve. However, has been along time since I have worked on the big stuff, there might be something new.

RE: Automatic air tank drain valves

They spit out moisture and moisture laden air every time there is a pressure change. OPERATING TEST With system charged, make several foot valve applications and note each time an application is made, an exhaust of air occurs at the exhaust port of the drain valve.

RE: Automatic air tank drain valves

Heated automatic drain valve is what it looks like. What is the make/name on it?

RE: Protection from freezing

"As an after thought, Winnebago probably used the most cost effective (aka cheapest) heaters they could safely/legally install." Had to smile,as probably very true! OK back to my coffee.

RE: Handling “hard dried stuff” in the black tank ?

Hard layer in bottom, for quite a while. Have been using the super friendly environmentally safe stuff, for quite a while. Tried letting it sit long time,did nothing.Tried soaps, bumpy roads, did nothing. So,when I went away (on the 7th), had found some old style now illegal? stuff, Thetford aqua-kem ultra concentrate.Added a bit of water and that, before I left.2.5 bags of ice.Well,having a toilet right on top of the tank,only so much ice would drop,must be a splash baffle.So when I would stop to pee,I would drop in more ice,till all was in. About 5.5 hr drive,one way, 2 hrs rough dirt and gravel,each way. Same road as last year,when I tried soap. Stayed a week, Got home to 30" of snow so camper/truck been sitting. Has warmed up, snow mostly gone, so 4 days ago dumped the tank. Got hose and wand ready. After dumping, looked in tank,(good flashlight!), all was very clean! Did not need wand, just hosed from back a bit, and very little of anything came out. This is what worked for me.

RE: Windows license scam

"Your Amazon account has been charged $795, you must call back if this is wrong" is a fairly new scam,now.

RE: Air operated stairs not working.

Does you dash not lift up. My 99 Mountainaire did. Yep it lifts up. I can see the back of the switch easily. But until I posted this thread I didn’t know if I should order a new switch or not. A lot of these air valves can be taken apart and clean and put in new o-rings and they are good to go. I took the switch out this afternoon. I can only take it apart so far. I eventually get to a point where I can’t figure out how to go further. I’d post a picture but I can’t for the life of me figure out how. I’ve tried to order a new switch but Newmar doesn’t seem to have one. Lots of air control places to obtain such parts,off the net. A picture or name and number off the switch might help. I don't remember how to post a pic, but I bet if you searched here, there is a thread.

RE: Puzzled by Refrigerator Problem

Yes,tank regulators go bad,quite a bit.Not uncommon at all.I carry a spare. But,it is always nice to have the pressure checked,with a manometer, even the new regulators. You can quickly and cheaply slap together a water tube manometer, instructions on youtube and the net.

RE: RF getting into Winnebago Furnace!!

Don't do HF on the road, but I would say ferrites and perhaps chokes on the furnace power wires, and on the t-stat wires. A wireless t-stat would be a no-no. You could consider adding metal to the roof for better propagation, like sheet,fencing or strands of cable.

RE: Air operated stairs not working.

All air ones I have seen,and heard of, use an electric rocker switch in the dash, to run it up/out, and back. Also,usually a 2nd switch, by the steps.These switches control a air solenoid. If yours is different, post a picture of the "switch". The bottom line is you have a air leak that needs fixed.

RE: Puzzled by Refrigerator Problem

Very good chance it will be fine. My neighbors has needed a control module(the black box in the back, with the electrics in it),and whenever it acts up,we are camping,so no 120v, he pulls the fuse (12v) to the fridge for a few minutes,puts back in,starts back up. He is too cheap to replace it,lol!

RE: A tale of two trailers, or prices are thru the roof.

Almost everything in the country is up at least 30%, mostly from materials and transportation costs. Where have you been? And it will be getting much worse, first of the year.

RE: Parking camper on sloped driveway

LOADING/REMOVING CAMPER Keep children and animals away from the area when raising or lowering the camper. Avoid putting any part of your body under the camper during the procedure. Do not tilt the camper sideways while raising it on the jacks. The jacks could buckle. Always raise or lower the camper with the front either level or higher than the back to avoid weight transfer and damage to jacks or cargo. Load and unload camper on firm level ground. Unequal load on the jacks can cause the slideout opening to rack. Use caution when loading and unloading the camper on a windy day. The amount of wind that is dangerous depends on your exposure and the weight of the camper, etc. ALWAYS KEEP FRONT HIGHER THAN REAR. LOADING CAMPER ON TO TRUCK 1. Extend each jack no more than 4" at a time, starting with the front jacks, keeping the camper as level as possible at all times. Repeat this
