RE: Rivets.. suitable for the awning

I have some of the tri fold rivets in the form of Olympic rivets and the head diameter is way too small. It would fall through the fixture hole. Molly rivets. I have used these for household jobs. You pound them in and turn the supplied screw to expand the folds. Then remove the screw and use it to mount item.

Rivets.. suitable for the awning

Hi, I need to replace some rivets that secure the awning parts to the side of the RV. The existing rivets look different and stronger than standard pop rivets. Does anyone know what these rivets are? Thanks, gH

RE: Plumbing: filter/strainer questions...

The larger filter with dome is the water pump filter. The smaller is, now that I have it out, connected to the auto-fill relay. Located in a horrible spot because you are supposed to service the strainer. I will move the assembly to a better spot.

Plumbing: filter/strainer questions...

1990 Excella 29 I was looking for a plumbing schematic or diagram for this RV but I can not locate one. There is none in the handbook. There are two items that appear to be filters or strainers. -One lives under the clothes closet in with the water pump. It has an unscrewable plastic dome. Its larger, with dome about 5 inches high? -The second sits close by, a little forward. Both on port side. Its a little in line thing. Asco Strainer written on the side. What part of the plumbing system does each of these serve? Is there a plumbing diagram? Thanks groundhogy

RE: Furnace running very hot...

... umm I thought that if I pointed out some interesting observation about the high exhaust temperature, no one would notice what a dummy I was getting a case of the vapors over a perfectly normal furnace.

RE: Furnace running very hot...

You can melt solder with that exhaust temperature

RE: Furnace running very hot...

I just pulled up the pdf installation guide and read this... Adjust ducting installation to obtain an air temperature rise of 100°F-130°F. Also see air flow check section.

Those are after steady state was reached. The furnace is a 30k BTU

I doubt the fire box is cracked. This furnace is pretty new. Stuff still looks pretty shiny. Atwood Model AFMD30111

RE: Furnace running very hot...

A common rule of thumb is that 50 degrees C is the point where a person can barely keep their hand on something. I could not keep my hand on the furnace enclosure. I have a fluke multi meter with temperature probe. If you have specific temperature spots you want measured, let me know. Guess I will do the enclosure temperature and duct air temp? I will also see if i can find info on the label.

RE: Furnace running very hot...

“you are getting HOT flue gasses into the inside loop.” Please explain further

RE: Furnace running very hot...

Its the inside vents that i am talking about. I pulled out the stove today to uncover the furnace. And I pulled off the cover outside of rhe RV. I started thinking that maybe the intake vents might be somewhat blocked with cat hair or something. This would slow the air flow, and increase temperature. I saw no real obstructions. The only other ways i can think of to get a hotter furnace is to either blow less air, or burn more propane..right? Do you think its supposed to run this hot? I mean i cant keep my hand on the furnace enclosure.

Furnace running very hot...

So I have been noticing that my vent air has been notceably hotter. Like too hot. So I went to the furnace and put my hand on it. It is also too hot. It is not triggering the over temperature sensor. It is a 1 year old Attwood/Dometic 30k btu. The new model they are selling. What types of things can cause this? The air is blowing just as fast as ever.

Looking at the map, my friend probably took the catanooga route?
