RE: Atwood 8531-IV DCLP Furnace Not Working

Relay is operating correctly. Going back to original thought of dirty sail switch!

RE: Atwood 8531-IV DCLP Furnace Not Working

continuity when wires are disconnected and reading the blue wires? If the furnace operates with blue wires jumpered as you indicated earlier, there does seem to be problem inside the furnace.

RE: Atwood 8531-IV DCLP Furnace Not Working

Sounds like the relay in the AC unit is not closing contacts. Just because you hear the click does not mean contacts are closing. You could disconnect the blue wires from furnace, connect ohmmeter to the wires, turn the furnace on via the thermostat. You should hear the click and the meter should show continuity if working properly.

RE: Atwood 8531-IV DCLP Furnace Not Working

Sail switch is located in the back of the furnace on top of the fan housing. You may have to remove the plastic cover. It is hard to see. It is very small, with the arm sticking into the fan housing. you can locate the white wire on the circuit board, then follow it to the limit switch(verify that the limit switch has continuity) then white wire continues to the sail switch. I am looking at my manual. color may vary. Manual from Bryant RV I reread your last paragraph. Sounds like dirty sail switch or open limit switch. Yes it could be loose or broken connection.

RE: Atwood Furnace Not Working

Go to the furnace, locate the two blue wires. Connect them together. This should start the furnace fan, within short period 10-20 seconds the furnace should produce heat. If nothing happens verify 12 volts DC to furnace. No power, probably fuse. Power but no fan check small circuit breaker mounted on fan housing. Fan comes on but no heat, blow the furnace out, paying attention to the sail switch area.

RE: IOTA Circuit breaker Box

You should not backfeed the 120 volt system from an inverter! This does not have any safeguards to prevent backfeeding into the power suppliers system.

RE: IOTA Circuit breaker Box

The breakers plug into the buss work. You may have to pry slightly. The plug in is on the opposite end from where the wire attaches. There is no latch! When dead front is re-installed, it holds the breakers in place.

RE: Tire chains needed?

I see you are in WA. You must carry tire chains with your 4x4. You do not have to put them on unless signs say "All vehicles must use chains". You state that you are over 10,000 pounds. This puts a slightly different light on subject. Most other times you can travel in four wheel drive. From WSDOT website. WSDOT winter driving 4WD/AWD and chains 4WD/AWD vehicles (under 10,000 pounds) do not need chains installed during "chains required" notices, but drivers still must carry chains with them in case conditions worsen and they're required to install chains during a "chains required on all vehicles" notice.

RE: IOTA Circuit breaker Box

You could call Best converter. They are very good on providing information. I would take your breaker into store to match it up!

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

RE: Magnetek 3230 power converter problem

Some older converters had two outputs from the converter, one filtered and one unfiltered. My guess is that the filtered side has failed. Possible capacitor.

RE: Loose tow bar in receiver

Look at different draw bars. Some have rounded corners and some have square corners. The rounded corner ones have more slop then the square cornered ones. Some receivers develope cracks in the corners. Some do not have reinforcing bands around the draw bar face. The better anti-rattle units strength the receiver.

RE: Cell service in Canada

We have the Travel Pass from Verizon. It worked good for us. Only used it for long period couple years ago. On this trip we just shut the phone off for a day or two at a time to avoid incoming calls. Short trip we used it and didn't see the daily charge.

RE: Need help bad!!

Thanks for the update!

RE: Need help bad!!

Verify the main fuse is good. Just because the solenoid clicks doesn't mean you have main power to it.
