RE: New AC problem

I thought the same thing about the thermostat, but I'm not a HVAC person. I would also wonder if the A/C vent is blowing on the thermostat causing erratic behavior. Nor if it has a period of staying on.:)

RE: Loss of Power when Furnace Blower Shuts Down??? Help!!!

You need to tell use what system goes on and off 12 volts or 120 volts. The word POWER and EVERYTHING does not help us. You have 2 POWER systems. Are the touch lights 120 volt lamps? If so unplug and put aside until the problem is fixed to stop confusion. So far all I can determine is you have a loose connection somewhere. Without proper information I can't help you. If the Surge protector says it ok then remove it for testing purposes. If it is an EMS and you have a low voltage problem then it is turning off the 120 volt power until it comes back into the 108 to 132 volt range. The lights will explane this for you. Look at the directions for uses. As a Master Electrician I would love to help.

RE: Netflix forces newer TVs

Both Netflix and Amazon Prime have stopped supporting certain devices -- in our case it was a BlueRay DVD player with WiFi. (My TV is a big rear projection unit with no WiFi.) I went to Blockbuster and came home with a Roku plus another gadget (don't rememer what it is called) that plugs into the Roku and has actual wires going to the TV. Everything works fine now. ps: Oh, the "other gadget" is an Insignia HDMI to RCA Converter. Blockbuster?? There is only one left in the world. So I have heard. Oregon I think.

RE: Loss of Power when Furnace Blower Shuts Down??? Help!!!

furnace has absolutely nothing to so with the 120 volt system. Lighting is 12 volts. Are your touch lights 12 volts?

RE: Air Conditioner

What is the purpose of and air deflector on the roof top unit? It already is designed to be aerodynamic.

RE: Air Conditioner

Is it possible to add an air deflector to roof air without putting to much strain on the unit. 1) Strain on what? 2) Depends on the unit but may be OK structurally 3) Will overload a 30 amp connection possibly Will have no effect on the 30 amp breaker. If there is an extra load it would be on the 15 amp breaker feeding the unit.

RE: Air Conditioner

Is it possible to add an air deflector to roof air without putting to much strain on the unit. are you talking about inside air deflector? Should already be one or more on the unit. there are 3 on mine. I can direct air straight down or close them off to direct air into the roof ducts.

RE: water heater anode rod

Atwood water heaters used to be aluminum, not SS. Are they indeed SS now? NO..... Atwood WH Tanks were and still are ALUMINUM tanks with a zinc cladding NO Stainless Steel used. Suburban uses regular old carbon steel hence the need for the glass-lining AND anode rod Just like the residential WH Tanks Rarely does any one change the anode rod in residential WHs Many don't know about them Many forget/don't care Besides......get a new one before warranty expires (5, 10, 12 years etc) My bad. Don't know why I typed that. I know better.

RE: Water streaks on side windows

Go up on the roof with a water hose and see where the water runs. After drying, build a caulking **** to divert the water flow to the gutters.

RE: 2004 Minnie Winnie question

1/4" gap is pretty big. Be careful. May be a major issue.Have an RV tech have a look.

RE: Winterizing--water pump kit question

Be very sure the hose is at the bottom of the bottle. Cut a v in the end of the hose or a slant so the hose cannot suck to the bottom of the bottle. Be VERY sure you bypassed the WH. The whole process should only take 2 gal.

RE: water heater anode rod

It all depends on water quality and the quantity used. I replace when it is about half depleted or the wire looks weak near the fitting. This is a good method. According to Suburban you should drain the heater when not in use, so plenty of opportunities to check it. The rods are cheap as is teflon tape around the threads, and I suppose Suburban has a good reason for using them in their water heaters. Atwood is aluminium. needs no rod. Suburban is glass lined steal and must have a rod.You must drain the water in the winter to prevent freezing and breaking the tank.

RE: water heater anode rod

This is the first RV that I’ve had that has an anode rod our other campers/motorhomes just had a plug. I took the anode rod out to drain the water heater and I thought it looked pretty ate up after only one season. Is this normal? Yes. Change if the rod looks like a pencil. Atwood is SS and needs no rod. Suburban is glass line steel and need an anode rod.

RE: water heater anode rod

On my last fw I replaced mine with a plastic plug. If you have a suburban WH you MUST have an anode rod. If not your tank will destroy it'self. Anode rod is sacrificial. you wanna spend $15 or $300.00

RE: Questions about pulling a fifth-wheel with a half ton TV

I would not want any truck/fiver combo that gets within 80% of the trucks GVWR. Only because you may end up hitting the bump stops on a regular basis and that doesn't make for a very nice ride and can be really hard on the hardware. I would love to know the person that started the 80% rule! I carried a 32’ 12,500# 5er with our 2001 Ram 2500, I was 1,700# OVER GVWR and just under rear GAWR, don’t ever recall hitting the bump stops, heck hardly got to the overload springs! OP is asking about 1/2 ton. Not 3/4 ton.
