RE: HwH is getting Ridiculous

RE: HwH is getting Ridiculous

what gets me is they don't have any problems Supplying new jacks for new rvs awhile us people that own our rvs can't use them .because our jacks don't work. Remaining in business is the focus or every company. I would expect HWH has contracts to supply RV mfgrs. with leveling and slide mechanisms ther were signed before the pandemic. Those contracts must be their first priority if they wish to remain in business. Every HWH leveling system made has remedies available for repair/replacement. Finding said parts is not so simple, HWH has many authorized dealers in the U.S.A., and have a listing on their website. I just discovered my HWH slideoout does not move even though the pump runs. Diagnosing the problem and repairing same is my next goal.

RE: Pulled to the left when being passed by Big Rigs

I was taught this back about 1960. When a large vehicle is about to pass, maintain a steady speed while gently and manually applying the trailer brakes. This pulls your rig into a straight line and greatly reduces trailer sway. This also works to reduce/eliminate trailer sway from other sources. You may waste your money on air tabs if you wish; a large trucking company did wind tunnel testing and proved they are not worth the investment.

RE: Bad Lippert O ring

https://store.lci1.com/o-ring-325in-35in-2-2363510000104-359172 Right on! FWIW, I have an "O" ring kit that is a "make your own" kit. It comes with various diameters of "O"ring material and a special glue. Cut to length and glue ends together. So you are right, alternatives are out there.

RE: Valve stem extension

For those seldom times I need to add air to an inner dual tire, I carry a 6" metal extension, I screw it on,add air, remove extension and replace it in my toolbox. I NEVER run with stem extensions installed.

RE: Exhaust brake quit working

Spartan confirmed i have a 2 stage exhaust brake., based on my vin number. Then your engine has a 2-stage engine compression(Jake) brake, not an exhaust brake. The Jacobs compression brake opens the exhaust valves just before the piston reaches TDC on compression stroke. reference: https://official.bankspower.com/tech_article/how-an-exhaust-brake-works/ and https://www.jacobsvehiclesystems.com/technologies/compression-release-engine-brake

RE: Refill small propane cylinder

The "transfer kits" linked above all seem to involve only hoses. How does one transfer Liquified Petroleum Gas without a pump? Perhaps a little bit might transfer through the hose as gas pressures equalize, but I fail to see how anything close to a refill is possible. The 29# cylinder is turned upside-down, the 1# cylinder is suspended by the hose and fittings. Liquid flows downward and replaces the vapor in the 1# cylinder. Takes about 30 minutes for a 1# cylinder to fill with that method. One must monitor this or the 1# cylinder can fill completely with liquid. I use an old kitchen scale to monitor 1# cylinder weight.

RE: Norcold Frig Parts List ??

Norcold does not sell door seals. You have to buy the complete door. Doug Right! However there is a workaround instead of paying $600 ea. for new doors. This company will custom make seals: Paula Hand Cool Temp Refrigeration & A/C LLC Hampstead, NC 28443 910-270-0405 source: https://www.irv2.com/forums/f54/source-for-refrigerator-door-seals-412632.html

RE: Refill small propane cylinder

A thread was closed before I could ask Grit Dog or anyone else about this. I have not heard of this here or anywhere else. I carry This one for my small Weber Q,much easier to store and move. I have never had a problem getting it filled. Are there some places that prohibit this and if so why. Posted By: Grit dog on 10/08/22 09:19am PS, that is the cutest little LP bottle I’ve ever seen! Good thing that guy don’t live in PA because he’d be stuck with no LP refills ….lol That one is a standard propane cylinder just like a 20 pound or 30 pound cylinder, only in a smaller size. Your only limit is the same one that the 20# and 30# cylinders have, namely, they have to be recertified occasionally. The issue of refilling small cylinders that you hear about is refilling the little 1 pound disposable cylinders. They are not designed to be refilled, but some folks do so anyway. Actually the law says "not to be resold if refilled".

RE: Exhaust brake quit working

I had an 09 Allegiance with an ISL 400...it had a two stage engine brake...not an exhaust brake. It would sure help if captron33 also told about his MH and type exhaust brake.

RE: HwH is getting Ridiculous

For heavens sake, you can buy at least one model HWH retraction spring through Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/s?k=hwh+springs&crid=2EBSSLIGUKZWZ&sprefix=hwh+springs%2Caps%2C156&ref=nb_sb_noss_1 Also through Winnebagoparts.com https://winnebagoparts.com/hwh-leveling-jack-spring-kit/ Internet search engines can find lots of things.https://duckduckgo.com/?t=ffab&q=HWH+retraction+spring&atb=v343-1&ia=web

RE: Hwh 200 leveling pump stuck on

Instead of HWH solenoids I bought dump trailer solenoids rated for 100A, and they work just fine. The solenoid that controls the slide mechanism stuck on, which in turn burned up the motor. Bought new motor from Northern Hydraulics, 3 day delivery.

RE: HwH is getting Ridiculous

Stewarts Service in Elkhart IN is the largest HWH dealer outside of the factory. Also some HWH parts are sold on Amazon.
