RE: What is leaking? Dometic RM1350 4 door fridge

It looks like something is dripping on the top from above. I would be checking the vent cover and roof in that area.

RE: Window screen clips broke. Where can i find these?

You need to know the brand and model of the window. Once you have that it should be easy to find the parts you need. I have used https://www.pellandent.com/RV_Products_List.aspx?CategoryID=278 when I need parts.

RE: Older Norcold fridge issue

25 years on the original fridge is very good so it is not surprising if the cooling unit is toast. There are several u-tube videos that show people changing the cooling units. I will not hesitate to change my own if I need to before I get too old.

RE: Dometic WH-6GEA does not work on electric alone

I am not familiar with that particular model but most of them work basically the same. Electric heating is 115 Volt AC but you don't even mention checking for it. 12 volt is for control of the gas so if gas only is working you know the 12 volt is good. You either have tripped the breaker for the 115 volt or there may be a switch on the unit. Or the electric might have been on with no water and burned out the element.

RE: Reflection 337/TPMS Question

I was able to pick up the 12 volts needed from the light in the front compartment. Repeater sets a few inches from the light. TST 507 works great.

RE: Handheld air compressor

As many have said most will do the job if you have lots of time. Pay attention to the duty cycle. That is the percentage of time that you can run them. I bought one that is by the same manufacturer that my other battery tools. That way I already have several extra batteries.

RE: Wheel Dust Caps

Check your bearings. I had a dust cap come off and just ignored it. A few miles later the bearing let go. If I had checked when I noticed the cap was off I might have prevented a major repair.

RE: Water heater

I forget what they call it but it is using engine coolant to heat water when on the road.

RE: Missing orange cover on marker light; Water leakage concerns

I looks a lot like the ones on my 2005. Mine is marked Bargman 59. The number is molded in on the outside. I think per DOT the number has to be on the lens.

RE: Mopkka tank Sensors

My biggest problem is the battery life. We don't use a lot of propane so the sensors need a new battery long before I have to remove them for a refill. I am a tinkerer so I converted mine to a remote battery system. I have a 2 AA battery holder with a switch on it so that I can switch them off when we are not using the camper. This battery box is mounted via magnets to the side of the propane cylinder. This gives me several years of battery life.

RE: Pnumatic car jacks for leveling?

I think you will find it rather bouncy but I can't see any safety issues.

RE: Propane smell inside oven

When we leave our oven pilot light lit for a few days, my wife can smell it. What she smells is not propane though, it is propane combustion byproducts. Get a propane detector and put it in there. They are very sensitive. If there is propane, it will tell you. Otherwise, it is probably combustion byproducts you smell. My thought as well.

RE: 2020 with stain above awning

It looks like a joint in the trim just to the left of the stains. My guess is that water is getting in and rusting the screws.

RE: Truck starts on its own

People pocket dial their phones all the time. Could the keys in someones pocket have remote started the truck?

RE: Dou Therm 57915.622 won't work.

There should be 2 wires(probably blue) from the furnace to the controller. They need to go to the thermostat. The thermostat is just a switch that connects the 2 wires to turn the furnace on and disconnect the wires to turn the furnace off. You can test the furnace by connecting the 2 wires at the controller and the furnace should work. If the furnace works just extend the wires to the thermostat(common and heat) and you should be good to go.

RE: Finally got the truck, next will the fifth wheel fit ?.

The real question you need to answer is what are the height of the bed rails and overhang of the 5th wheel. The newer trucks are higher than they were a few years ago so in many cases the older 5th wheels are not high enough without some modifications. If you are looking at new 5er's you won't have any problems but a tape measure is your best friend when looking at anything used.

RE: Extended stay propane use

You can't see it from the picture but the male acme threaded end also has the left handed thread inside it where your regulator will attach. The acme thread is fairly new for propane and the older left hand connection is inside on most everything. You just have to look at it.

RE: Propane Tank Level Indicators

wa8yxm didn't include the Mopeka in his list so that makes 5 types. I have used the Mopeka for several years now. They are way more accurate than most of the others. I have made some modifications that have improved their operation considerably. 1. We don't use much propane so the battery life was less than I would have liked as the battery ran down before the propane needed filling. I modified the sensors with a remote battery holder with 2 AA batteries. 2. I made my own spacers which are bolted to the tank so they don't fall off. 3. I shimmed and added a spot of Velcro to the free end of the sensor so that it maintains good contact with the tank.

RE: Any experience with GM rear view camera ?

No real experience with the camera but I think the plug in is located with the 7 way so you might be OK with the length depending on how you route the wire.

RE: leak at connection to drain pipes and Holding tank

I think you fixed it. Several years ago I had noticed a slight odor from my gray tank when it was about 3/4 full. I figured out that it was coming from where the drain pipe went into the top of the tank. Further investigation showed the the tank had a rubber grommet that the pipe went thru and the floor forced the pipe slightly to the side which deformed the grommet so that it leaked. A few minutes with a Dremel and no more smell. At least I had easy access to the problem area.
