RE: Difference between Yamaha & Honda Inverters

I think that the larger engine in the Honda means it doesn't have to work so hard which is one of the reasons they are quiet.

RE: Charging Camper/Coach Battery with Running Lights Lead from Flat-4

Watch the review by e-trailer. They don't recommend using on the 4 wire because the wiring is not heavy enough.

RE: 2009 Silverado 3500 HD Duramax LMM overheating

Most of the overheating problems were solved by 2009. Have you checked the stack for debris? This is one of the things that often affect the temp on an older truck.

RE: Dealer stripped threads in Hub ?

So your saying that the Fiat has wheel bolts threading into the hub. This is not the easy fix that most cars use where a press in stud is easily replaced. I am not sure that I would trust having the threads repaired on such a critical part. If it were just thread damage it could be corrosion, but with the dealer pointing out that the bolts have been stretched I would lay the blame squarely on the mechanics at the dealer.

RE: 500 gallon propane tank

The regulator you have will work fine. All propane appliances use 11" pressure.

RE: Water heater plastic plug

The plug is not plastic. It is nylon. Why do people constantly try to reinvent the wheel? Uh. Nylon is a man made product (Man made silk replacement if it's spun into find threads) and the word plastic means MAN MADE So nylon is a type of plastic.. True there are many types of plastic. but NYLON is one of them. So for those of you who have been calling it "Plastic" it is And for those who call it NYLON.. that too. Both words are correct. You need to take this one step further. Nylon is a brand name. Most of what we call nylon is not because it is made by someone other than the brand holder.

RE: Duo Therm 65900-001 sparking but not lighting?

Probably a spider web in the burner tube. You wouldn't hear the gas valve if the sail switch was not working.

RE: Suburban SW6 lights but drops out after 30+ seconds

How does it do if there is other gas usage? Lite a couple of burners on the stove and observe them while the WH starts and goes out. If there is a gas problem upstream you will see the flame get weak there as well.

RE: TST color monitor (TPMS)

With it hidden away that far I would mount the antenna remotely or you will lose the signal frequently.

RE: Dexter Axle Electric Brakes

If they are self adjusting the will adjust every time you use the brakes if they need it. Something must not have been very well adjusted or you would not have been able to drive a 1/2 mile before realizing what had happened. You need to take a good look and see what has happened like others have said.

RE: Where is the valve to drain freshwater tank

Some times it is a cap instead of a valve.

RE: Propane Tank Gauge,recomendations please

The other one that works quite well is the Mopeka. The only problem that I have had with it is that the battery life is only about a year(or less in cold weather). It uses sonar to check for the height of the liquid/gas interface. I ended up making a remote battery system for mine so that the battery can be changed without removing the propane bottle.

RE: Propane tank integrity test

The whole re-certification is a joke to begin with. If the guy refilling is not afraid to refill it it gets the sticker. But for $5 what do you expect.

RE: Portable or Hardwired EMS?

Hardwired! In addition to the other advantages that were listed: Why add another plug and socket? I often see where the plug or socket have burnt up on the portable units. If the receptacle on the portable gets a high resistance, you will get low voltage in your unit. I remove the wire from the input of the power panel, connect it to the EMS and then add a short cable from the EMS output to the input of the power panel. And if it’s a 50 amp unit, the hardwired will protect your unit from a power cord fault. IMHO, an open neutral on the power cord (or source) is the most important protection. This is the way I did mine 10 years ago. We are not full time but average 10 to 12 weeks a year on the road. Only one time in all those years has it detected a fault and kept me from receiving power(the campground had a bad 50amp breaker). It has shut down a few time for low voltage in the middle of a hot afternoon. If anything needs repairing the parts are plug-in and Progressive will send the new ones as needed.

RE: Different kind of Jack-knife

I drove through the ditch getting my 5er home for the first time. It didn't hit the truck but the steps of the 5er took a beating. I ended up widening the driveway 4 ft so that I can get in and out of it.

RE: Replacing drum brakes ???

You also need to inspect the drums for wear on both the braking surface and the magnet surface. You can get parts at most anyplace that has trailer parts.

RE: Built-in microwave sounds sick

Your batteries have absolutely nothing to do with your microwave. It is 120 volts. Run an extension to it and see if anything changes. Plug should be in a cabinet next to the microwave. Micro should be on it's own circuit. Pull the outlet out of the wall and check the connections. Check the wiring in the circuit breaker box for loose connections. check voltage with a real volt meter. Not red lights. X2

RE: Need help with sulphur smelling water

In our area we have this problem. The man at the plumbing store said just remove the anode from the water heater. It has been smell free now for almost 30 years. I have also heard that a Zinc anode will eliminate the smell while still giving you the protection of a anode.

So why are you posting in 5th wheel?
