RE: IOTA Circuit breaker Box

Thank you for your response and for your service sir. I am thinking that I need to remove the single 20 amp breaker from the Box to take it in to see if I could match it. This is why I'm also looking for some sort of manual to gather some more information on how to access it and remove it from the Box. I am thinking of the one you showed me from lowes is going to be too big. I may have to go to a specialty store to find the part. When using the Internet I was unable to find a circuit Box made by iota. Iota makes the converter. not a breaker box. just remove one and go to Lowes or HD.

RE: Bypass valve position 2006 travel supreme

I recently posted a pic of the heater isolation and bypass valves on the iRV2 Travel Supreme Owner's Group Forum. You can see it here (Post #28): Water Heater Valves Hope this helps. Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy Note, that picture is "inuse" not "bypass".

RE: IOTA Circuit breaker Box

The breakers should be available at most big box hardware stores. I believe you are asking for a "twin" breaker" Not a double pole. Lowes 20 amp tandem breaker Best converter 50 years electrician and never heard of IOTA breakers. You will not find one. That is the name of the box. Pull one from your box and take it to Lowes or HD. There are about 5 brands that will fit. should be listed on the box cover or inside the box. They just snap in and out. Lift out the opposite side of the breaker from where the wires attach. Turn off the breaker before you remove it. You are looking for a Twin breaker not a double pole.

RE: I Need a little Tank help ...

Yes, get a mobile RV tech to do it for you and teach you how to do it and so it soon if you don't think the dealer did it. You will have to know how to Dewinterize. While he is there he can walk you thru all the systems and explain how they work.

RE: winterizing

Close low point drains. Bypass WH. Close all but one faucet. Close that faucet and move to the next one open/close and so on.

RE: Hearing problem need wireless mic and ear piece

I'm getting a bad case of CHS (cant hear s...) and FWIW, my Dr. told me that (real) hearing aids are going to become an over the counter item in the future and that do so shold cause the prices to come down. I'm hoping I can hold out that long. That is not true for REAL hearing aids. That is just for amplifiers. My hearing cuts off at the higher end of frequency's. I can stand right in front of our microwave without my hearing aids and not here the timer beeper which is 1 foot from my face. but I can hear the pile driver 2 miles away without them. I forget the frequency level that my hearing drops off. That is what causes people to not here some words being spoken. or hear some letters pronounced. It's not about the volume it's about what frequency you are not hearing. Only a hearing test can show this and no over the counter can fix it. Real hearing aids can amplify the higher end and cut down or out the lower end. Just like an equalizer on a stero. The more tracks the higher the cost. Forget about those $800 for two you see in the newspaper. I am on my 3rd set in 20 years at $1800.00 ea.The next step in hearing aids is gonna be blue tooth/GPS. Doc says I will be able to call him in MA from FL and he will be able to adjust my hearing aides from his computer.

RE: Magnetek 3230 power converter problem

The photo looks like the product of a loose connection. The converters have 2 "Reverse polarity" fuses to pervert damage by improper battery installation.

RE: Magnetek 3230 power converter problem

Remove the board and check the back side.

RE: Forum Posting Help and Support

Just as a curiosity, why do you think so many threads, on a host of topics, are started in Forum Posting Help and Support? Is it through a default of some sort? Because if you click on "Forum Posting help and support" a screen pops up and the button on the top left corner says "Post new topic" so Click and they are off and running. No further reading required. Forum Designers are not the sharpest knives in the drawer.

RE: Brake light/ turn signal

Agree check the bulb. however you said the running light is working. But that doesn't tell you the brake light is working. The brake light, and the turn signal light is the same bulb. has 2 filaments in one bulb. tail light is one filament. Brake and turn is the other.

RE: New Mattress or Hotel ?

We bought a Queen sized Coleman air mattress for visiting adult kids to sleep on. Both have reported good reviews on the mattress. Good for 800#. Has 110 volt air pump. We put it back in the box and store when they leave. $40.00 at Target.

RE: Brake light/ turn signal

START WITH THE BLUB.Turn and break are the same filament of an 1157 bulb. Unplug from TV and check TV plug. Disconnect trailer wiring from light. Plug in TV and check trailer wiring. Yellow and green are turn signal. Red is brake, white is ground.

RE: Blow out water lines question

Blowing will not remove all the water. Yes you must blow ALL lines. No need to blow if your gonna add anti freeze. Wast of time. If you only blow, how do you get water out of the pump. I can put anti freeze in my rig in 15 min by myself. How do you get water out of the icemaker, Dish washer, washing machine if you have these? Antifreeze is easier and more effective. Don't put it in your fresh water tank.

RE: Propane winterizing

Leave then in place connected. Can't freeze. No problems. Just turn off incase of a leak.
