RE: Dometic RM1350 left refridge door flapper problem

I also could make a piece of metal that matches the top op the flapper. Epoxy it to the top of the flapper. I'll call Domestic and see what they say. Thanks

RE: Dometic RM1350 left refridge door flapper problem

I hear you,but there is no play on the top hinge. nowhere for the door to go up. It looks like someone has inserted washers on the lower hinge like you suggested. I bought this 2016 Keystone avalanche last year but don't know the history of the fridge. Someone has tinkered with it. I need to raise the flapper which may not be feasible or lower the part that the flapper is to ride in. That I think I can do.

Dometic RM1350 left refridge door flapper problem

Been having problems with the refrigerator not cooling properly. Sometimes it would cool to 34 and other times up to 48. I thought it was the thermistor until one day my wife noticed that she could see into the fridge between the doors. We realized that the door flapper on the left door workes intermittently. The fridge works perfectly if we manually close the flapper by hand. The left door needs to be raised up about 1/8 to 1/4 because the flapper is sliding under the part that closes the flapper. I see no adjustment to raise the door. Anyone dealt with this problem

RE: Can I charge the house battery with the engine alternator?

Which solenoid did you buy? I'd like to replace mine

RE: Can I charge the house battery with the engine alternator?

Just compared my cheap digital gauges to my Klein multimeter. Identical. Going down the road, the alternator reads 14.5 and the house reads 14.5 When I turn on the lights and the heat, both drop to 14.2

RE: Can I charge the house battery with the engine alternator?

Just added 2 digital volt meters to my dash. I can now see the house battery and car battery voltage levels with the engine off. When driving I can determine if I need to charge the house and monitor the alternator. Life is good

RE: Can I charge the house battery with the engine alternator?

My 88 is in much better shape than you have deduced. My Onan generator works great. The inverter/charger has been updated. This unit only came designed with one 12v house. I now have 2 in parallel. My issue was that the charging system with the car alternator had been kinda stripped out and modified. With everyone's help here, I got it straightened out and now it works perfectly. So I am good to go.

RE: Can I charge the house battery with the engine alternator?

I just feel better with a switch while I'm trying to figure out how this works. One of the things is don't know is whether I have a regular solenoid starter switch or a battery switch (which is just a starting solenoid that can handle continuous power). The previous owner had a push button switch which tells me he was using it to jump the MH. But the batteries were not connected. I just ran it for an hour and everything seems fine. But turning the switch off makes me feel better.

Pianotuna, Not sure what you mean by balanced manner?

RE: Can I charge the house battery with the engine alternator?

Thanks guys for all the help and education and support. I'm smarter than I was and Crush (that's my RVs name) is now better off. So I decided to test the solenoid now that I understand what is supposed to happen. So I gave the small post 12 volts and it worked just fine. I redid the wiring and cleaned all contacts and posts. There was some corrosion and bad wiring which caused the solenoid not to function. After I put it all back together I got it working as designed. Victory. I just need to add a toggle switch so I can control when it charges the house. I went to Sam's Club and got a second 12 volt marine/RV battery to match the one that I had first and I will be wiring them in parallel so that I can get ready for my big trip. While it is a 1988 it only has 40,000 miles on it of which I have put on 10,000. We are planning to go from Maryland to Northern Florida and cut across the Gulf Coast for about a month this winter. So I will be better able to handle the cold than I was with just 1 battery and no house charge as I drove. Again, thanks for the help.

RE: Can I charge the house battery with the engine alternator?

Gritdog, To get the charge from the alternator to the house, can I just run a wire from the positive car battery terminal to the battery switch that goes to the house battery! I don't want to play with the alternator if I don't have to. If so, does it need to be a large diameter cable or a 12 wire sufficient?

RE: Can I charge the house battery with the engine alternator?

Thanks guys. I'll order the isolator. Klutchdust, What's the advantage of two 6volt batteries in series vs two 12volt in parallel?

RE: Can I charge the house battery with the engine alternator?

Thank you guys for all the info. There is more to the story. I didn't want to glog up my post but since I have found interest and intelligence, someone may be able to explain this. The large positive wire comes from the house battery to a post on a selenoid which is mounted on the driver side wheel well. Then on the opposite side of the selenoid, another large red positive wire goes up and across a plastic channel over to a block attached to the passenger fender. My guess is that this is all factory but not sure. But what is not factory is a push button has been installed inside the cab on the dash. It connects to the selenoid and a power source. The push button doesn't work, but the purpose was to activate the selenoid so that the house battery power would run over to the car battery/passenger side of the vehicle.i thought it may have been a system to use the house battery to start the car. Maybe someone can explain what it is. I'm gonna pull it since it has no purpose it seems. This is probable the battery switch, but why it has a push button makes no sense to me

RE: Which one of you put a water filter here?

I'm not sure I like that inline filter design. They need to be changed and that looks dificult to get in there and remove.

Can I charge the house battery with the engine alternator?

I have a Class C, 1988 Ford 350 Travel Master with one good house battery. When I boondock in cold weather, my propane furnace can get me thru 1 night. If I want to drive to another non electric spot,I'm out of electric and therefore heat. I am considering adding another house battery as a solution. But I want to know if it is a simply solution to charge my house battery using the engine alternator. Also, a battery cable has been run from the house battery into the engine. It is terminated in the engine bay but not connected to anything. It looks like factory work. Maybe a factory option. Thanks for looking

RE: Is a ventless washer dryer efficient

Thanks for the advice. There are a lot of ventless on Facebook marketplace for cheap. There must be a reason.

Is a ventless washer dryer efficient

I'm looking at buying a washer/dryer combo for my fifth wheel. Does a ventless take a lot longer to dry? Where does the moisture go with a ventless? Is it discharged into the RV?

RE: 1988 Aluminum roof covering suggestion

Thanks guys. This must be what happened 4 years ago after I bought the EPDM. I did nothing. Lol The roof looks good to me but I remember people talking about aluminum developing pinholes. But I don't see any oxidation. And when this was built, they didn't try using the thinest material they could get away with. So, I think I'll take your advice, keep it clean and let it be.

1988 Aluminum roof covering suggestion

I have a 1988 Travel Master (Coachman bought them). I am currently removing and putting new lap sealant on all the joints. It has an aluminum roof on it that has been there for 34 years. Hard to believe and it is still doing the job. But I think it's time to do something to take it another 10 years. I have had the RV for 5 years and a few years back I bought a gallon of Pro guard Liquid Roof EPDM sealant. It is kind of like epoxy in that you add a catalyst and mix. Any comments about coating an aluminum roof are appreciated.
