While using my black tank flush

For the first time it filled up the fresh water tank!!! There is no other valve to turn on-off so what gives? I’m traveling today ( yes I drained the fresh water tank). Look forward to your replies. Thanks in advance Jimbo

RE: Hum water heater not working on either Lp or electric.

I have hot water now. It was the thermostat- and the rv tech said buy dinasaur control board and have it ready cause the one that is in mine is junk. He showed me how to replace the igniter board. All is well in hot water land. Jimbo

RE: Hum water heater not working on either Lp or electric.

My last water heater looked like that with the black box but my dometic heater has no such box and yep it’s full of water and lord I wished it was hot ?? no clicking when I turn the water heater on Lp. And no power to electric element either. Somehow my rv does not recognize I have a water heater ?? Jimbo And nothing is burned either it’s a new rv 4 months old

Hum water heater not working on either Lp or electric.

Have a 6 gallon dometic water heater which worked fine last year. Running my generator today neither gas or electric would come on and heat the water. Any/all suggestions welcome. Thanks in advance Jimbo

RE: Just a word of praise for gopower solar

You stated that you don’t know any rv that come standard with solar but mine did and many brands have models with solar onboard. Seems ( and yes I could be wrong) that certain models the manufacturer picks to puts a solar setup on them. This was a big reason - and of course not the only reason I picked this model. I can add 400 more watts safely by simply adding a panel and hook it up to the other panel. It’s plug and play. Heck they even use that 2 sided very sticky auto tape to attach these flexible solar panels onto the roof so no drilling required. In less than 2 minutes I can add another panel stick it down to the roof and connect it to the existing panel. Love free energy and 500 watts will more than allow me to do what I do during the day while the batteries are being charged. I don’t use anywhere near 500 watts an hour so more will go into the batteries than I will be removing during the day - ?? days of course. Jimbo Ps what I’m trying to say is the Dealership did Not installl my solar - forest river did at the factory.

Just a word of praise for gopower solar

My 2021 sunseeker came with a gopower 100 watt panel and a 30 amp controller. I ask the salesman if the panel charged with the coach batteries turn off and he said no. I thought that strange as the controller was working while we were talking and the coach was differently turned off. You would want your solar to keep a charge on your batteries while your in storage- at least that is what I would want. Long story short YES it does keep a charge on the coach batteries while the coach is turned off. Have been to the motor home while in storage at least 6 times since the end of November and the batteries are charging and topped off every time I go to storage. I have seen the controller at 14.4 and 13.4 and 12.7 which to me means it is working correctly doing the different phases of battery maintenance float bulk etc. Gone are the days of running an electric cord with a trickle charge battery maintainer. It’s almost time to head out ( going full time for the second time 2009-2012) see ya down the road. Jimbo

RE: PROPANE LEAK??????

Gee posters. He had the tanks on for the past year and said so in his post. Also no one seems to think it odd that the smell is strong after sitting for a year? Tells me the leak is very very new. Brass fittings srink when it gets cold. First thing i would do is (once you get more propane in the tanks) is simply sung up the fittings, turn it back on and see if the smell comes back. But wait till it warms up into the 50's a few days before doing this. Give the brass time to warm back up. Wife turned our burner half way on (by mistake of course) while putting a towel under the glass on the stove to keep it quiet as we traveled home late November. Only a 2 hour trip home and never smelled LP. Went to check on batteries a couple of weeks later while in storage and yep no LP in the tank. Filled it up at u-haul and after putting it back in storage i used my LP smell checker and sure enough i also had a slight leak by the regulator (it also got very cold the 2 weeks in storage before i came back) Sometimes before we tear down the trailer maybe just take a deep breath and check the simple things. Were kids playing in the rv in the past month and maybe turned on a burner, etc. Because of no use for a year yet a very strong smell tells me it was a very recent event of some kind. Jimbo

RE: SD Address, yay or nay?

Hum I read all the replies and have to wonder how a state knows how long you stay there? We just notified Virginia on 11-6-2020 that we are now domicile out of Florida and I even gave them my good sams address in Florida even though they did not ask for it. I also explained that my house was going thru a remodel so we could sell it. All they ask I do is notify them if I changed my mind so they could renew my tags on the motor home and car otherwise I would have to do to dmv all over again. I love reading all the different topics on here but honestly several who post on here go into overkill. We already have a dmv in Florida we are going to in May to change our licenses and tags. After I get them I doubt I set foot back in Florida for a few years.

RE: Propane regulator?

I got a lp sniffer and it works great, it found the leak for me today I am Just afraid to over tighten the fitting. Funny but one side of regulator has tape and the side I found the leak on does not have tape. My tape is arriving Monday -tank valve is currently closed so no leaking lp until I can get at it next weekend. Jimbo

RE: Propane regulator?

I have a picture of where it’s leaking but don’t know how to post that inside here Jimbo

RE: Propane regulator?

It’s threaded

RE: Propane regulator?

Honestly I do have a slight leak at the fitting on the left facing side of regulator. Was afraid to really crank the fitting so I’m more inclined to use tape and not brute force to close the leak. Jimbo
