RE: Banging noise

Gotta be a little more descriptive hippie.huh? Good grief.... The other posters have nailed down some potential causes for the "banging." But your original post left alot to question. While parked, while driving, when hitting bumps, only when you n Mrs Hippie are gettin hippy, front, back, morning, night, after gas tanks are almost empty, only on Tuesdays? That's what I was gettin at.wow

RE: Banging noise

I have a 2018 pacific coachworks fb29xl toy hauler. Sometimes I hear banging noise underneath. Not sure but the banging sound could come from any of the tanks but more likely the gas tank? Is that common? Is it bec from pressures? I have this sound ever since buying it. Anyone experienced this? A very common sound from toy haulers comes from the fuel tanks. They are notorious for venting badly. I have one tank for my generator and another for my fuel station. The gen doesn't draw fuel very quickly, so it doesn't usually bang. The fuel station will bang every time I pump gas out. The solution is to crack both gas caps and leave them cracked to vent for the whole time you're camped. This especially helps if you have high temp swings since the fuel tanks aren't insulated if you have an enclosed belly.thanks. I’ll try it next camp.

RE: Banging noise

Well if you let the wife out of the basement...... Sorry no clue It is possible the fuel tank can bang, among other things. If the fuel tank builds up a vacuum and then it sucks air it can bang. Various parts (Drive shaft, exhaust) can also bang and more.wife? where?

RE: Banging noise

Does the banging occur when the furnace is running, or shortly after the furnace turns off? We have a 2014 Pacific Coachworks Powerlite 23FBX toy hauler travel trailer. We have an occasional bang occur while the furnace is active. I believe it is the sub-floor heater duct making the noise. The metal ducting expands as it heats up and makes a thumping or banging noise. After the furnace shuts down, the ducting begins cooling and makes another banging noise as it contracts. I just ignore it -- not worth the effort to fix it. Edbanging was more pronounced when the trailer was new. After a year, now, the noise isn't as prvalent but still nas those noises once in a while though.

RE: Hitch concerns

The picture I see isn't like any hitch I've ever seen for towing that much weight. Also as mentioned this hitch isn't adjustable it is important that the trail tows level. I should say very important. I also do not see any torsion bars or anti sway device. You really need to go to a qualified TT dealer and have them set this thing up for you.I have wd hitch with sway bars which I always use. But when I camp just a mile away backroads I just use this other hitch and drive slow. It tows level bec I put the shank upside down

RE: Hitch concerns

Looks like you’re already towing with it? Why not see how tight you can jack knife the trailer and decide for yourself. None of us can see how tight you can back up from the internet. Just as important, looks like you have a 2” square hitch and the adapter sleeve. That is not a good combo for longevity. At some point you will wallow out the hitch pin holes and bend the hitch pin. Adapter sleeves are a short term, occasional use solution for those that have a bigger receiver and don’t have the right size hitch.i know. i tried to remove the sleeve but can't. looks like the sleeve is so molded to the receiver i can't pull it out. its not rusted but its just molded in.

RE: Dometic heater

Go to the wall thermostat and push the Mode button until the green light is on in the Fan Position. Use the +/- arrow to move the selection to Auto. You currently have it set to LO or HI.Thanks

RE: Dometic heater

Place the fan control on the thermostat on "AUTO".Thanks

RE: Dometic heater

Place the fan control on the thermostat on "AUTO". YEP^^^ Fan control on thermostat is for the A/C Unit Fan. In Auto the Fan runs when A/C runs In Manual (high or low) fan runs when A/C runs BUT will also run when furnace runs. Idea is A/C Fan 'helps' circulate the warm air from furnace (heat rises) But in reality it just cools the wram air and provides no benefit plus it's noisey.thanks

Dometic heater

When I turn on the dometic heater on my rv, the aircondition would also turn on. Anyone experienced this?

RE: Gas

Could be from your black tank. When I am not going to use my trailer for more than a few weeks, I rinse out the black tank and "sanitize" it by filling it with water and adding a good amount of chlorine bleach, let it sit for an hour or so, then drain it. If you can't fill and drain like that, try just pouring a cup or so of bleach down the toilet, don't really need a whole lot. Septic tanks can give off a "gas" smell, so it is something to think about.thanks for the info
