RE: Finding amp draw

sounds like the brakes may be engaged. Safety pin in place for the breakaway switch? Large wires are for the house.

RE: Oops ??

think outside the box. Plug it and cover it. Put a SS bolt/screw all the way thru from the outside and leave it. Use some silicone sealer. Wipe off all the outside excess before it dries.

RE: No Shore power in Roadtrek

You need a volt meter and need to know how to use it. If you have a dog bone adapter plug it in the plug in a lamp or something to see if you have power there. Check the main 30 amp breaker in the RV. Are you sure EVERYTHING is out or just somethings. You would not be the first to make that blanket statement.

RE: Help: DC Power cuts out under load

Take the battery to and auto parts store or Battery;s Plus. Have it "Load tested" with an old fashion battery load tester. Copy and paste. www.harborfreight.com/100a-612v-battery-load-tester-61747.html?

RE: Hard start capacitor

I have this posted on another forum and don't seem to be getting any answers to the question. Okay guys, my knowledge of electricity does not even make me dangerous. I have been doing a lot of reading in regards to getting a generator for my toy hauler and came across the term "Hard start capacitor". From what I could gather this works the same as a soft start kit. If that is true, why would you use one versus the other. The only reason I can find after doing very limited research is that the soft start kit is $300 versus the $10-$15 for the capacitor. If some one could please explain the difference and also the pros and cons for each, I would greatly appreciate it. Please take it easy on me, as I stated I know nothing about electricity other than don't stick a butter knife in the wall outlet. Thanks for all your help. I may have been involved if the other forum. Hard start Cap and soft start are tow very different things. Soft start ramps up the voltage slowly. It is best for a low voltage situation on newer equipment and marginal impassivity on 30 amp services. Hard start is just a larger "Kick in the ass" on start up usually used of older compresses. That being said, I am an electrician and use a Hard start on my 2011 A/C because I have a constant low voltage problem in my camp ground and I am cheap. If you have a newer unit on 30 amps I would go with the Soft Start. If say 5 years or older go with the hard start. Neither will do damage to your unit.

RE: Where to put a dryer vent

Ventless dryer kits are as old a the dryer it's self. Big box and hardware stores sell them. It vents into a small container of water which is what catches all the excess lint. You change the water every time just like the dryer vent screen. Your manufacturer can tell you where the dryer vet hole goes. A stud finder will also.

RE: 2017 Springdale faulty furnace. Couch removal to access?

Don't know about you unit but all the ones I have seen you must pull the furnace away from the outside wall in order to remove it. No access from outside. Straight back from the intake and exhaust ports. I'm very sure someone will have an exception to this but that is how the majority work. It requires a special circuit board tester to check the control board unless you can see some burned evidence of damage.There is a sail switch and gas valves involved also. Best to get help. not really a DIY project. You can pull it out and take it to a dealer so you won't be without your rig for weeks.

RE: Atwood hot water heater -- Too darn hot

Adjust temperature of water by turning down hot and turning cold on. Hot water will last longer. Bingo. Best answer. Good answer to a point. In a former MH despite adjusting the temperature, when taking a Navy shower and turning the handle off to conserve water, when turning it back on, for a few seconds it was all hot. Now this was probably a cheap mixing valve, but that's not the point. If you didn't remember each time you turned it off to direct the water away from you, you got blasted with water that had to be well beyond 120. I forgot once and ended up with burns on my chest and blisters. A WH that only heats to the legal 120 would have prevented that. Why aren't RV water heaters confined to the same specs? So while correct water mixture is a reactive way to prevent scalding, it's not preventative. Yup. There's no such thing as an idiot proof water heater. In that case, a shower head with an on/off "navy shower" button is recommended, so you don't have to adjust the mix at the taps/valves. (sorry, not implying anything, just using colorful relevant phraseology :B) OxyGenetics not only has a good shower head it does not compleatly shut off and eliminates the blast of hot water.
