RE: Coleman Mach 3 screws coming loose

It's not just that the bolts will loosen from the gasket sagging with age, they will keep working their way out (presumably from going over bumps while towing) so the mounting bracket and control panel are hanging down by an inch or more from the ceiling after a few trips. The original gasket didn't hold up very well and started leaking when it rained. The aftermarket one seems to be holding up better, and the upper unit is still sitting at the right height and sealing all around. Even if I snug them up, the whole thing will soon be hanging way down from the ceiling. I understand they might need to be snugged up periodically, but it seems they had very little resistance and would vibrate themselves on out.

RE: Battery Problem

I have ordered the Progressive Dynamics Model PD9260-cv. My trailer operates on 50 amps. I now see the converter is 60 amps. Will this be a problem? Ordered it on Amazon. The 60 amps refers to the current it can deliver on the 12 volt DC side. Not the same thing as the 50 amp shore power connection on the AC side.

Coleman Mach 3 screws coming loose

A few times now, I've noticed the control panel for the unit sagging. Turns out the long bolts that hold the top and bottom half together keep coming loose. Even after I replaced the gasket, I can't make them much tighter without compressing the gasket too far. Yesterday I finally took the panel off again, got the unit realigned with the hole, and put some blue Loctite on the threads. Hopefully it stays put, but has anyone else had this problem?
