RE: Black Water Accident

I second the cap with a garden hose attachment. I have one and I always carefully loosen the small cap and make sure there are no leaks before I remove the larger cap.

RE: 15+ F150 - Breakaway Cable anchor?

I don't have an F150, but I had the same concerns on my Suburban. My solution was to find a hole in the frame near the rear bumper. I through bolted an eye bolt through the frame hole and hung a snap hook in the eye bolt. Now I can hook my breakaway cable to the snap hook and it is separate from the bumper or hitch.

RE: Should I connect my sewer line when camping?

I leave the hose stored away until ready to dump. If I'm going to have to dump again in the future I leave it attached. Otherwise it gets stored and I drive home.

RE: Black Water Tank Issue

So if you have are sure you have a black tank. And if that tank is not holding water but rather letting the liquids drain out. Then yes you need to get that issue (probably the valve) fixed as soon as possible. Right now the liquid is draining out of the tank and the solids are staying behind and piling up on the floor of the tank. If this is not addressed you will soon have the dreaded pile of poop under the toilet and another plug to clean out. The valve itself might still be functioning and the seals are melted. But with the possibility of melting damage on the valve itself I would probably just spend the extra $10 to replace the entire valve. Valterra valve Camco valve

RE: Installed new kitchen faucet.. success

No way, that's almost superhuman to only make one trip to the hardware store. :)

RE: Honda Eu3000 Problem

You mention the stumble and power shutdown in economy mode. Does that only happen with the AC running, or does it happen anytime powering the trailer regardless of the AC? Does the generator idle smoothly, or does the idle lope or hunt (seem to surge or run both fast and slow)? The fact that it keeps running but stops making power seems like an electrical fault. But the fact that it runs with the gas cap off seems like it's an airflow problem. So on the airflow premise I'd say there are a few possible causes that I would try in order of easiest to hardest. You already changed the cap so that's probably not it. But make sure the vent on the cap is set fully to the run position. If the idle surges or hunts you probably have a dirty carburetor. a shot of Seafoam engine treatment in the fuel tank might cure this. Otherwise you'll have to disassemble and clean out the carburetor which is a bit more difficult than what's below. You might just have a dirty air filter. Try running it for a few minutes with the filter removed. Or just clean or replace the filter. Clean off the spark arrestor. Change the spark plug. Clean out the carburetor and adjust the valves.

RE: Honda generator question

our posts apparently crossed. See my post above yours for an explanation. :)

RE: Honda generator question

Yes you can link (parallel) the two generators to power your AC unit, people have been doing it for years. Here's a link to a $50 parallel kit. Link and a link to a $30 unit. Link The kits are all basically the same so don't get too hung up on brand name. There is a danger in paralleling the generators. If done incorrectly you can create a hazardous situation that could be potentially fatal. The good thing about the kits above is the plugs self seal if one of them gets somehow disconnected from the generator. Do not go the cheap route of just plugging the two generators together through the household plugs. Doing so will also achieve what you want. But it creates what is appropriately called a suicide cord. The link below is an example of a suicide cord. You plug the ends of the cord into the generators and you get more power. But if one of the cords comes out it will be an exposed live wire. Thinking about camping there are quite a few reasons a plug might come undone. A toddler wandering around camp. A teenager playing a prank on their friend. Or maybe an adult who's had a few too many, stumbles and trips over the cord and lands on the exposed end. Below is a link to a suicide cord. While the cord in the link would not fit your generators, the idea is the same, just don't do it. Link to a "suicide cord".

RE: ISO Owners Manual

The old manuals are pretty hard to find, as others have said, RV manuals are pretty much useless. But if you're curious about and looking for just general "How To's" such as how to fill the water, drain the tanks, open the awning etc, then yes they can be helpful but you'll probably only look at it once. While not the same as being to just open the manual, If you have a question about your trailer just post it here with a picture if applicable and we'll help figure it out.

RE: Trailer braking display F150

Are you saying the display used to show the gain when you use your foot, but for some reason it no longer shows when braking? Or are you saying the display only shows the gain for a short period of time when your foot is on the brake. But if you use the hand control the gain is displayed the entire tine you are applying brakes?

RE: Had Americas Tires install new tires BIG PROBLEM

If I'm reading correctly it's just the gray tank drain. If so there is probably no need for insurance. The line is just standard black ABS that you can buy at Home Depot. Call a mobile repair guy to come out and repair the line. If it's readily exposed you could also call a plumber as well. I'll bet the repair is under $200 when it's all said and done. Hopefully the manager will pay up if you can present an invoice and avoid the hassle of small claims court.

RE: Transporting RV batteries in your TV

I would say no problem s long as they are just sitting and aren't being charged.

RE: No 12v power to Motorhome?

Are you plugged in or is the generator running when you read 30v? Do you have solar?

RE: electrical issue

If your shore power cord has only three blades and you are tripping a 30 amp breaker it's probably normal. If 4 blades you need to find a 50 amp site to run both AC's at the same time. If only three blades (30a) you can try staggering the starting up of the ACs by a few minutes to try to get them not running at the same time. But ultimately you'll probably only be able to run one AC at a time.

RE: Norcold N611RT not cooling in either AC and LP modes.

I have basically the same refrigerator. Just to reiterate what Doug said. If you put the switch to Auto and the Yellow LP light comes on at all, the refrigerator is trying to run on LP. If the LP light is blinking it usually means the LP failed to light. When you go outside and can hear the flame in the refrigerator, what is the yellow LP light doing? Is it flashing or on solid? Definitely check for 12v at the plug in the refrigerator compartment. And last thing, there may be nothing actually wrong with the unit. Mine will sometimes fail to auto switch back and forth between AC and LP when set to Auto. I see this most often when plugged in to the house while getting ready for a trip. If I'm on AC and I disconnect the shore power cord and then reconnect it again, the refrigerator will intermittently stay off with the LP light flashing.
