RE: Slide Out and Hot Water Heater Not Working

Slide out and water heater both use DC BUT are separate issues Slideout...typically wired directly to battery POS post with an in-line fuse (or DC Circuit Breaker) so start at battery and follow smaller individual wires to the fuse/CB and check if blown/tripped Water heater.... Could be Main DC Fuse bad, could be tripped t-stat, could be Fuse on water heater circuit board, could be circuit board It would help if you posted Brand/Model of water heater

RE: Trailer Brakes Shorting Out - Controller shows overload

Do the trailer brake wires run inside the axles from one side to other? If Yes...wire probably has been chaffed causing insulation to break down.

RE: Hot water heater not hot enough

WELCOME! Post Brand and Model for specific info I take it water heater works...but water is not hot...correct? Then most likely issue is the 'bypass' valve on water heater is still open You will have a Cold Inlet (bottom), a Hot Outlet (top) and a line that connects cold to hot (bypass) Cold needs to be open, Bypass CLOSED and Hot open (if it has a valve ---probably uses a check valve in Hot out) Water temp is Pre-set via a temp t-stat (bi-metallic disc) no adjustments Suburban...130*F Atwood.....140*F

RE: Marshall changeover regulator doesn’t indicate empty tank

Indicator works off of cylinder pressure When pressure in cylinder drops to roughly 10# the regulator swaps to the other cylinder When you move lever the pilot valve allows full cylinder pressure in causing Red to move to Green indications Pilot valve is gumming up and wouldn't matter which regulator you have if propane supply is gummy

RE: Pinbox moves?

When I inquired with factory rep 'What amount of flex' was normal he stated 1/4" MAX More then that then pin box support structure or frame rails are under sized/braced Should have your friend remove the overhang panel and visually inspect supports/frames/bracing when hitching & unhitching his 5vr

RE: How Hot Does Back o Fridge Gat?

Boiler section runs 325*F to 350*F when on electric or gas Top pipe (water separator) that goes above condenser fin section is roughly 300*F+ Condenser causes the Hot ammonia vapor to cool into a liquid ammonia When the liquid ammonia mixes with the Hydrogen it sub-cools which then absorbs the heat from freezer first (low temp evap coil) then from food compartment second (high temp evap coil...when the freezer is cold enough to allow heat absorption from food compartment) Absorber tubes (large slanted tube bundle) should be warm to touch ---also absorber tank but less warm then tubes Actual temperatures of the various components is a secret cause other then boiler (perk tube) operating temps no actual temps are published for general public CAUTION: Removing an absorption fridge and running it w/o being inside a cabinet with proper clearances WILL cause OVERHEATING conditions and damage the cooling unit They are NOT designed to operate standing alone cause airflow/Draft is not present! Not surprised yours was HOT!

RE: Fresh water problem

Smells both hot and cold. I always sanitize the HWH. It’s an Atwood. So no anode. Oh, isn’t the lining aluminum? Is it reacting with the softened water? Tank is glass lined so I doubt that's an issue. If it were me I would try filling the tank from another water source just to rule out your current water source as the problem. Your house may have water softener but it may bypass the outlet your filling the RV from. Also - if you have a built in water filter that maybe the problem. NO ...Atwood WH Tanks are NOT glass-lined That would be the Suburban which uses a STEEL tank and glass0-lining to protect steel tank plus anode rod Atwood uses an ALUMINUM tank that has a zinc cladding so no anode rod is used. Softener is not your issue Both cold and hot smell........that is source water supply How old is your Hose? Did you sanitize it?

RE: We are Drowning in our...

In all fairness, speaking as one of those folks who participates in the "Adopt-a-Highway" program where we pick up litter along a 2-1/2 miles stretch of highway: a lot of the roadside trash is stuff that blows out of trash trucks. Finding a Wendy's wrapper, when Wendy's is 15 miles east, for example. I tend to assume the lightweight stuff is blowouts from the trucks; the minibottles of liquor, on the other hand, are definitely from the local slobs.... 15 miles on HWY.....55 mph 13.5 minutes is long enough to choke down a Wendy's burger So not necessarily a 'trash truck' just trashy people

RE: 2-way refrigerator operation without a battery

As mentioned...... 1985 vintage converter will need a battery to act as load so 12VDC system can be supplied. Yes...your AC/Gas Fridge will need DC Voltage to function...circuit board, display, controls for electric and gas That is provided your converter is functioning AC IN==DC OUT (converter should have 13.2VDC Output minimum Check DC Voltage on DC Dist Board (where all the fuses are)

RE: black tank flush port

If you haven't used it you should fist locate the Anti-Siphon Backflow Preventer device It is installed at least 2' above black tank...typically inside bathroom sink cabinet It acts like a check valve when water supply is turned off...allows air to enter tank side line so water drains back into tank When water supply is ON the disc is pushed up blocking the air inlets If it doesn't seal off...water POURS out and can flood bathroom etc Water supply goes in bottom connection and flows to tank nozzle out the side connection Someone should watch it when first using to make sure it doesn't leak https://www.keystoneforums.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=8711&d=1433156531 height=400 width=400 Cheap plastic ones are typical...better brass ones are available https://i61.servimg.com/u/f61/14/61/54/17/100_1610.jpg height=400 width=300 https://www.keystoneforums.com/forums/picture.php?albumid=953&pictureid=5264 height=500 width=300

RE: Fresh water problem

Is water heater a Suburban with an anode rod? OEM anode rod is magnesium and can react with microbes in source water ---sulfur smell Aluminum anode rod as available BUT you have a softener and the aluminum doesn't react well to softened water So sanitize and flush that water heater whether Suburban or Atwood
