RE: Blade Seal

Interesting development. After watching the videos I went back out and futzed with the toilet a bit and now it’s holding water just fine. I think the bowl was misaligned from the base.

RE: Blade Seal

Thanks, the video I looked at made it seem much more difficult.

Blade Seal

Thetford toilet and the water leaks down pretty quickly. I am thinking it’s the blade seal and I guess that means removing the toilet to do the job. If thats the case, I am tempted to pay someone to do it. Aside from the obvious unpleasant odor etc, is the job that tough?

RE: 50 to 30 to 15 amps

I purchased the 50 to 30 in the event we come across a park where there is only 30 amp service available. Just ordered the 50 to 15 for the house. Thanks for the input all!

50 to 30 to 15 amps

Was at Camping World recently where I saw a travel trailer on their showroom with what looked like its 50 amp cord, with a reducer to 30 amps and another reducer that was then plugged into a regular wall outlet. We'll be moving from our home soon so I do not want to install a 50 amp breaker and associated receptacle so is there anything wrong with using a similar set up? I realize I will need to limit the load to under 15 amps but that should keep a trickle charge on the batteries. I am not running the A/C or really anything else except the DC controls and the fridge (running on propane).

RE: STRANDED - no power to slide controls or jacks

I am curious to know how this is/was resolved.

RE: STRANDED - no power to slide controls or jacks

On my Itasca there is a fuse and breaker panel in the front drivers side outside compartment. Fuses are inside a removable cover, breakers are right where you can see them. Good luck I hope it’s something simple.

RE: A crappy experience

Solved. Despite being new, the hose was defective. Hooked up an identical, new replacement hose and zero leaks. Now we are ready for the road!

RE: A crappy experience

Thanks for all of the responses. I am shipping the old hose back and getting another in its place. Will fill the grey water tank with fresh water and test it out ensuring there is an o ring and it's in place. Man, I never want to go through that again.

RE: A crappy experience

Mike I know the fitting, on mine it’s new thank goodness,

RE: A crappy experience

Thanks, it was locked into place of that I am positive. It I am not missing a piece on the coach which is doubtful, the hose has to be faulty. I will take a bit of pleasure in sending it back.

A crappy experience

Well, my first time emptying the tanks on this RV, new Rino hose, tight connection, it appeared to be a good seal but it leaked like crazy right into the water service area. What a mess. I can’t tell if the new hose was faulty as the connection seemed tight. The manual states that there is a swivel on the valve and pipe but I am not seeing anything like that and the angle of the hose is almost 90 degrees from the connection to the bottom of the compartment. Very frustrated, would love to see a picture of a like RV dump valve area as I suspect I am missing a piece even though the connection “mates”. Pardon the subject, just couldn’t help myself.

RE: Online shopping for parts and supplies

+1 for a less than satisfactory experience with PPL. Amazon the retail killer for very fast shipping and low prices. This weekend compared several items in store at a local, large nationwide RV store and Amazon and the price differences were substantial.

RE: Fridge on propane while driving

Thanks, not going to sweat it (pun intended).

Fridge on propane while driving

I have read opposing opinions on this. Should I just run the generator to power the refer or is it okay to utilize it on propane while driving down the road?

RE: "303" Survey

Is this also the right product for the rubber seals around slides?
Timothy2001 06/08/19 02:31pm Class A Motorhomes
Essential Tools or I sure wish I had brought............

Aside from all of the basics like pliers, channel locks, various screwdrivers etc. are there any tools to bring along or keep in the RV that maybe are out of the ordinary? Stuff that you might have realized you needed after the fact. Trying to plan for eventualities and be prepared.

RE: 50 AMP and plugging in at home

Getting a full electrical service at home is a really nice thing to do/have done. I love being able to use my RV to the fullest even in the driveway (hell, even the "doghouse" isn't so bad when DW sends me there :)) Next step is to be able to dump tanks at home. This was a real game changer for me. No more waiting in line heading out of the campground on Sunday. No more making the kids "hold it" until we get home. So is this a 'hostile integration' into the plumbing that goes out to the street assuming city sewage and not septic? Very appealing to me too.

RE: 50 AMP and plugging in at home

Whoa Kimo Sabbe! It's a bit more complicated than simply replacing a breaker and receptacle. That is unless your home fire insurance is paid in full, you no longer like your house, and the insurance company won't find you at fault for frying all the wiring inside your box. Generally, 20amp service, (Tee shaped receptacle) uses 12 ga wire, 15amp service (Double I shaped receptacle) uses 14 ga wire. 50amp service uses a minimum of 10ga wire, depending on the length of the run. Simply changing out the breaker and receptacle will allow you to power up you A/C units for a bit as your breaker will not trip. However, your house wiring will then become a substitute for your breaker. Once the wiring gets too hot, it will melt and burn through if you're lucky. If you're not so lucky, it'll simply start a fire and burn your house down. Hire a licensed electrician....Dennis LOVE THIS! I learned a long time ago what I am capable of, what I am not capable of and what is just plain stupid to attempt and this falls under the later. Anyone who was in the Navy remembers, "The Deadly Shipmate" and I prefer not to mess with electricity at sea or on land unless it's a simple light switch or house outlet.

RE: 50 AMP and plugging in at home

Thanks very much for the quick responses, a bit more complicated than I thought. I will likely have a 50 AMP breaker installed in the house panel wtih an appropriate recepticle.
