Need replacement 2 prong cord from Atwood Jack

The cord going from my front left atwood jack to the plug in the camper has an intermittent connection. The problem is in the jack (male connector) - it appears the wire is broken loose from the copper pin that goes into the camper. As this is a molded one piece assembly, I could cut it apart and attempt to repair it, but I was hoping I could just buy a replacement off the shelf and be done with it. And that is where my problem starts. I cannot find a replacement for just that cable by itself. Oh there are lots of kits with bunches of parts I dont need that have this part, but I was hoping just to purchase the cable. Any suggestions as to where I can find a replacement for this simple black cable with a molded plug and two connectors?

RE: Looking for some advise on flat beds / cab and chassis

Not that I can answer any of those questions but I have been thinking of the same thing. Don't know if they have any distributors in your area but CM truck beds, in OK, have the AL RS Series that I have my eye on. Got my eye on a truck that has everything I think I need already on it (except tiedown points) at a price I think is good.

RE: Looking for some advise on flat beds / cab and chassis

Newer Fords are famous for taller cabin, so some TC require shimming, but flatbed elevates the camper already, so as long as headache bar will not to go above the cabin, you should have no problem with it. Already looking at the headache bar height and getting measurements - then looking at truck campers to see if it will fit under the cabover. For ties, I am afraid you are looking at custom stuff, but members who did it might add more details. I am hoping to get $0.02 from someone how has done that on the forum here! I had TC on steel flatbed for 1 trip and that thing was "walking" like crazy, so make sure you have good rubber mat. I was thinking about putting Herculiner on both the bed of the truck and on the bottom of the TC. I had a bed mat in my last truck, but I put the Herculiner on the bottom and up a few inches on the sides of my last TC and it sealed all the seams very nicely and looked very clean.

Looking for some advise on flat beds / cab and chassis

I am moving back to the world of truck campers, but I would like a little more storage and a truck I can do some other work with, so I am looking at 4500/5500 series trucks with a flat bed and some storage - but I need to know 1. what should the length of the bed be? 2. how tall is too tall for the headache bar? 3. how do you do the tiedowns? Thank you!!

RE: Fix for Error: Topics per page to 20 Posts per page to 10

I’m not positive that this will fix everyone, but it seems logical. I only have a sample size of 1. Worked for me! You can increase your sample size by another +1 Thanks!!!

3d printed box for Amdro Liquid Ant bait - prevent spills

I like the small liquid ant bait containers from Amdro, as they do the job, but the problem is they are so easy to spill. I created a little (near) spill proof container that had magnets to prevent it from falling off a shelf or countertop. If any spills out of the Amdro packaging, it is held inside the box - but there is no restrictions for the ants entering the box. If you have a 3d printer you can make this yourself. See here.

RE: Propane valve wont seal - unusual? How to fix?

You might want to check with a propane distributor that does home and business delivery and installs and delivers tanks to those homes and businesses. They should have all the equipment necessary to safely empty tanks and cylinders and perform maintenance on them. thank you very much for that information! I am going to pursue that direction.

RE: Propane valve wont seal - unusual? How to fix?

10 mins sounds like a long time. Can you confirm that a functioning system will not run a stove for 10 minutes? 11-14WC is about 0.5psi in the line. It should run some with the tank off, but 10 mins sounds like more than enough time to drain out the lines. Also a variable is how many feet of propane plumbing there is to pull from. When you open the propane compartment it should smell. If on a trailer outside, then it will be hard to detect a smell if leaking. Without the stove test, I would consider a leak in the line somewhere also, the gen would have the same effect. Hopefully it is your tank or the hose/fitting that it connects to, or the regulator as these are easy to replace. 1. The stove is almost straight above the tank. So the line is going to be very short 2. Dont smell anything - but - as this is an AMSE tank and there is no floor under the tank and if anything was leaking, the propane would fall to the ground and disapate. Sorry to ask the obvious, but you don’t have two valve do you? One liquid for the genset, one vapor, or two vapor. there is a fill valve, an overflow valve and a valve that leads to the pressure regulator that leads into the RV

Propane valve wont seal - unusual? How to fix?

I have a 2016 Forrest River Forrester 2401WS MBS. On our last one week outing we used the gas cooktop and gas water heater multiple times. On our way back home we stopped at a rest stop and we were going to need to stay there for 15-20 minutes and with the heat we decided to crank up the generator (on board propane) and start the A/C. Well, the generator would not start. Today, at home I had some extra time and decided to see about the generator. After decoding the flashing light error code - it indicated no fuel. So I went out to look at the ASME tank. The gauge said 1/3 full. I decided to try to see if maybe the valve was not fully open. I could turn it multiple times to fully open. Now, the generator would run. But - it seemed strange the number of turns on the valve - so I fully closed the valve - went back in and lit the cooktop. It worked. I let it burn for 10 minutes until I deliberately turned it off. From all I can tell, the propane valve on the tank does not fully turn off - it leaves enough to leak through to run the cooktop, refrigerator and/or water heater. Is that unusual? What's the best way to get that replaced?
