RE: Furnace works; then doesn't; works again?

Guessing ducts were only slightly kinked since I've never inspected or moved any of them (thinking RV tech was just covering up for the fact that the thermostat was the ONLY issue and they had already installed a new board).

RE: Furnace works; then doesn't; works again?

Man o man....you guys are a valuable knowledge pool of thoughts!! Yes, I feel it was mainly the Lowe's brand Honeywell not syncing with the RV. But, I've now got a new circuit board, unkinked ducts and new thermostat. Sadly, throw enough money at it and sooner or later a dart will hit the target :) I had better be WARM on that BEACH.

RE: Furnace works; then doesn't; works again?

UPDATE: so, they had already replaced the main board (maybe unnecessary?) and nothing had changed. So, this time, the removed the Honeywell digital thermostat and replaced with White-Rogers analog RV thermostat and also straightened out the heating duct beneath the sink/couch/bedroom areas since they said they were "kinked up" in several places and thought that was causing a high heat sensor to trip the furnace off and not auto-start back up. They said they left furnace on last night with temps here going down into the high 30's and said camper was toasty warm this morning. Seems to be working as I type but will know for sure once I'm on the cool beaches of North Carolina this weekend and next week.

RE: Furnace works; then doesn't; works again?

Yes, tried the range running to make sure gas was available, turned off tank and back on, turned water heater on, ..... it's back at shop and will post results (positive I hope) once they figure it out. Told them to check digital thermostat and maybe try a manual thermostat; also check regulator to ensure proper propane pressure, and pull heater box apart and look for any rust. Fingers crossed XX

RE: Furnace works; then doesn't; works again?

Yep.....thought about that too, Bob! I also boondock more than hookup, so it's rather important to me. Not sure what a new unit would cost but will ask. Mainly, I want to make sure they pulled it apart versus just put the board in and fired it up once. I think a trained monkey could do that.

RE: Furnace works; then doesn't; works again?

Going to drive it back and suggest they test all the suggestions provided. I wrote them down. Furnace came on a few time when switched on but next try would do nothing. Even replaced wall thermostat and still same thing. Just won't staying running to keep temp at 65 degrees. If it starts, it runs until hits 65 then will not automatically restart to hold temp. I asked them to service the system since it's never been done in 14 years and they just replaced the board and fired it up once and turned it off. I had told them what it was doing.....no one cares enough to follow directions nor guarantee their workmanship anymore. Will follow up. Thanks!

Furnace works; then doesn't; works again?

2003 Fourwinds E450. Last trip to NY, furnace did fine all day but went to bed and wouldn't hold temperature and could hear blow turn on but ignitor won't fire, so turned it off. Just got it back from RV repair and they said they replaced the circuit board. Checked it before I left and turned on, but as soon as I get home, won't turn on. Kept running thermostat up and down but nothing. Using a digital Honeywell thermostat btw and it's almost new. Can hear the "click" each time I turn off/on so think that's ok. So, turned it off and back on and it fired up again. Got up to 70 degrees, it turned off, and won't come back on to keep temp at 70. I've tried it hooked to house power, batteries and generator....makes no difference. House batteries are at 12.9amp so shouldn't be an issue. Before I lug it back 40 miles to shop, any ideas from the "thinking men" on the board?

RE: Running generator on a hill

I've got the same year unit and pickup is top center on the rear tank. As mentioned, reasonably level for comfort as well as proper oil circulation within the generator. Gas will get to the unit in either case unless you're talking about a serious downhill/uphill location. Use your leveling blocks and/or improvise some boards to keep it semi-level just to avoid a costly mistake. I park on farms and beaches and always try to get it as level as possible since I run the generator all night when needed.

RE: 2020 Class'C' E-450 Ford V10 lacks power?

And very beneficial and helpful to all of us who may find ourselves in a similar situation, that the OP follows up to reveal the "solution to the problem was....???". Don't leave us guessing. We all ask questions and look for ANSWERS on this board.

RE: No Power from house batteries in class C Four winds 2004 ?

Is the electrical outlet (30amp) plugged into the electrical box at the rear? I've done this many times with my Ford 2004 Four Winds. There is no disconnect switch on this model (at least never found one in 15 years).

RE: Living Space Sound System Options?

I'd either replace the stock system with an upgraded receiver/Bluetooth/Wireless unit and should be easy to replace door speakers and maybe add two speakers in the back section (just use undercarriage to run wires). I put in a Sirius system so I don't have to channel chase while going down the road. For TV, a soundbar is an excellent addition for the couch time.

RE: Shower stall caulking.

"An ounce of caulk is worth a pound of cure"....well, in my book anyway. Probably not necessary but I re-caulk this seam about every 2-3 years just to be safe. Cheaper than having to remove shower for moisture/mold issue. I use Duralink 50 which stays 50% flexible for life (useful for RV that's constant vibrating/moving). I use this stuff for windows/vents/shower/exterior lights etc. and have had very good results.

RE: Louder TV??

Installed another ZVOX in my house yesterday and has made a world of difference! Terrific product in the RV and house. Didn't realize how much I was straining to hear, but, this soundbar is great for voice. Super product and highly recommend. Keeping the volume down on the TV is a blessing for everyone.

RE: Can't hear TV? ZVOX update!!

Thank YOU sir! Wouldn't have found it without your post :) I can't control the treble/bass as you can, but the volume of voice track was why I picked the model 203. And, same master volume high to 30 but seems 14-17 is plenty loud enough. Going to take my RV unit and put in my home today and wait for the other one I ordered to come in to put back in RV. Certainly hope others may benefit from this topic and solve a very annoying hearing problem. Thanks again for your guidance!!

RE: Can't hear TV? ZVOX update!!

Weldon: Best way to say it is the voice track is louder thus easier to hear. The music/background noises are diminished. I know you can use a headset if needed, but for me, standard listening with everyone. It puts emphasis on the vocals in the program at a level you can customize. Trying tonight to use my standard TV in my home and already tempted to go out to the RV since the experience was so much rewarding .....two days and my in home unit will be hooked up. My fishing buddy just ordered one today as well.....his wife says he keeps the TV too loud just to hear the words.

RE: Can't hear TV? ZVOX update!!

Direct from ZVOX.com site and mine was the AccuVoice AV203 with 6-levels of voice control. Just ordered another one for the house.

Can't hear TV? ZVOX update!!

Posted earlier about my hearing issue and can't hear TV when a/c and generator are running. Assuming I'm not the only one out there with this issue. Well, just installed the ZVOX soundbar and I'm telling you this thing is AMAZING! Lost most of my hearing in one ear, so hearing and following conversations on TV/Movies is tough. Well, this system allows the user to raise the Voice Track only up to 6 different levels. And, the general volume is a separate item. Super easy setup and if you want it loud, this soundbar really booms out the 3D sound/theatre sound! It's at least 3 times louder than what my TV was doing. OMG....can't tell you how excited I am with the freedom of being able to solve this most annoying problem. If you do have similar issue, order the 6-level adjustment model ($199 on sale) because it really gives you control over the voice portion of the program you're watching. A big THANKS to pnichols for the link to this website and product!

RE: Louder TV??

From what I read, the ZVOX allows user to increase the AUDIO/VOICE portions separate from the overall volume of the program which sounds perfect in most situations I've experienced (just can't hear the dialog clearly). It has 6 levels to increase the volume of the words....I'll post a reply once it arrives and I try it out. It would be nice to not be blasting the volume all the time just to hear what's being spoken.

RE: Replace GENERAC generator in a Gulfstream

I spent $2000 having my 2004 Generac completely rebuilt last year; but, was a lot less than buying a brand new unit north of $4000. It's all in how you consider "cheap repair". Good luck.

RE: Louder TV??

Wow, thanks for all the replies! I clicked on the ZVOX link and this "sounds" (no pun intented) like the exact fix for what is/are my hearing issues. Hoping the volume is high to help further drown out the a/c unit overhead. But, overall, the description of what this soundbar does should greatly assist with enjoying a DVD while on the beach relaxing between tides. As an aside, they say my hearing may improve over time as the nerve damage from the tumor may regrow and make a connection from the eardrum back to the brain. The body is a mysterious, marvelous thing. Thanks again for some alternatives!
