RE: ? "Easy" Toilet Blade Seal Replacement?

Not if you are careful removing the old seal and installing the new seal. I yank the old seal out using a needle nose pliers and then very carefully insert the new seal being sure to get the seal in the slot around the rim of the opening. You'll have to hold the blade back using the foot pedal while doing this. pay attention to the orientation of the old seal so you get the new seal in the same way.

RE: Water Pump and Battery Question

Since the pump load increases when running the hot water I'd check to see if you have a check valve on the outflow line of the water heater that is partially blocked or about to fail.

RE: Issue with house batteries

It was a box in the corner along the outside wall towards the rear of the MH. It is always on. You should hear its fan running a lot.

RE: Issue with house batteries

I have a 2003 Itasca Sunova 33L. Unless the previous owners replaced it you have a basic converter. In my unit it is located under the refrigerator behind the circuit breaker panel. It is accessed by removing the drawers under the refrigerator. Early on I replaced the OEM converter with a smart converter that does a lot of things the original converter didn't do. I also changed the batteries to two 6volt batteries in series.

RE: Tow Bar Age

I rebuilt my 14 year old Blue OX tow bar before our trip to Alaska in 2017. I took it completely apart, checked all welds for cracking, had it sandblasted, repainted it, and replaces all fasteners, washers, and springs. Now it's good as new.

In my experience, the cheap male ends of the white hoses you get at camping supply stores get flattened over time which is the cause for the leaks. Even good washers don't help. Get hoses with good brass ends (hard to find) or replace the ends with good brass fittings.

RE: refer stopped working on gas

Sometimes the slots on the orifice deteriorate and the flame doesn't hit the sensor correctly. Have had to replace mine twice.

RE: no hot water from taps

My guess is the check valve on the out flow conection to the water heater. Happened to me.
