RE: Dometic refrigerator frost and ice

So I need to just defrost manually when necessary? You can do that. Don't be as concerned about the freezer section frosting up as much as the cooling fins in the main section. They need to be relatively frost-free to function properly. As mentioned above, most newer RV fridges have an auto-defrost function that will basically turn off the fridge for a short period of time to allow the frost to melt off the fins.

RE: furnace/hotwaterheater wont kick on

I assume you have a converter/charger that is contained in the power center. Saying you looked at the fuses I assume you found it. Have you actually tested the fuses, sometimes they look good but are burned out? Depending on the trailer and how it was designed the furnace and the water heater could be sharing a fuse.

RE: Reliable Walkie Talkie?

One of your battery problems may be the voltage of the rechargeables. They typically are 1.2 volts fully charged vs. 1.5 volts for alkaline batteries. The voltage may be drawn down below a useful level for the radios in a short time after charging.

RE: Battery over charging

Not all chargers are created equal whether it is new or old. What brand if power center/converter do you have, that may tell us something. If it's a WFCO it probebly isn't doing the best job of charging the batteries. Changing out the converter really isn't a hard job. Many people have switched to Boondocker converters or Progressive Dynamics.

RE: Fridge warming up overnight

Did you uplug the thermocouple to see if the fridge goes into the emergency cooling mode?

RE: Water Pump Accumulator Setting

Did you try adjusting the cutoff switch on the pump?

RE: Tank monitor/Water heater/water pump issue

A bad ground is my first thought.

RE: Back fire and power loss

This is a long shot but do you have a vacuum hose unhooked somewhere?

RE: EU2000i starts, then imediately quits..

Well thank you wa8yxm. I LOVE radios. I love radio noise. I have a 1950ish blaupunkt am-fm radio that works. I have a 1900ish am that needs restored, and i have a working 1950 Sylvania TV. Oh, a 1960s sony pocket transistor radio That's interesting. I have a 1950's Channel Master transistor radio, an Eico portable transistor radio that I built from a kit and a four-tube radio that my dad built and sold in 1923 when he was 16 years old.

RE: EU2000i starts, then imediately quits..

Pull the exhaust spark arrestor and give it a cleaning. Carbon and mud daubers do a good job of plugging it. You must have missed my message early on. Good news to hear it is running. I had a similar experience with a weed eater, in that case it it was a mud dauber that plgged the exhaust.

RE: Water pump runs but no water pressure

Not using the pump for an extended period of time can allow the parts to dry out and stick, I guess, causing the pump to not prime. I got a new Shurflo pump and it had water in it. I suppose it was for that reason.

RE: Honda 3000 Problem

Most airports and marinas sell e free gas. Our Race Tracs sell e free gas for boats in Fl. NOPE, not "everywhere". PA, you NEED to have a legit FAA TAIL NUMBER in order to purchase "AV" fuel from an airport. For racing fuel, you NEED to own a race car AND have a valid PIT ticket for that day.. Don't know of ANY "Marinas" selling anything other than adulterated gas with alcohol in PA.. In northwest PA we have ethanol-free gas at various gas stations

RE: Honda 3000 Problem

Has it been stored with gas in the carb? And do you use ethanol-free gas? Ethanol gas is hard on small engines.

RE: Reserveamerica

I've done it online.

RE: Water pump problem

I agree you need to adjust the head pressure switch. On the end opposite of the motor, there is a recessed screw next to where the wires connect that requires a small hex wrench to adjust. Turn it slightly one way or another until the pump stops cycling.

RE: Trailer Life Magazine

I compared the number of pages between issues, March has 98 pages, April 66 pages, and May 106 pages. I figure it out, April was a shorter month. :)

RE: Passenger side convex tow mirror source

Passenger side mirrors are standard equipment. On Amazon lookup mirrors that you like and ask a question.

RE: Passenger side convex tow mirror source

I have the extendable heated mirrors on my 2012 F150. They have the lower convex mirrors that can be manually adjusted separately from the main mirrors. The passenger side's main mirror is also convex. There are lots of aftermarket mirrors available online.
