RE: Leak near Valve/Tank Connection

Take a look at SeeLeval gauges for RV holding tanks. The read in much more accurate. If I remember right 10's of the tanks. Not very hard to install.

RE: Atwood water heater drain plug tightening

I don't remember make or type of water heater, but a I put a quarter turn valve on our mh water heater, then all I have to do is open the valve to drain it. Down side, can't close cover with drain open.

RE: 7 pin cable

I would use crimp butt splicers and Heat Shrink insulation tubbing. :R Rookie mistake. Crimps work best with proper quality crimping tool, very few people have the proper crimping tool and substitute pliers and crush the connection making a very poor and unreliable connection. Additionally, standard heatshrink tubing is not weather proof or water tight and moisture will destroy the connections hidden inside the tubing. Not to mention the average backyard electrician won't have a good heat gun and will use matches or a lighter to shrink the tubing making a mess of the job.. For heatshrink tubing to work in the outdoors you must get adheasive lined tubing, it has a heat activated glue that surrounds and seals around the wire insulation making a good water and weather tight seal.. But, a good electrician will try to avoid allowing connections to be exposed to weather which means taking the connections back to the original connection box which is protected from the weather. Inside that box, the connections are made with wire nuts, no need to reinvent the wheel. Just use the existing wire nuts inside that box and all will be fine. True, but I do have the proper tool. I'm a retired construction electrician. And if I remember right, a box is required when the voltage is above 35 volts. On a trailer a box collects road salt and rusts.

RE: Aqua Magic IV toilet part

A part on our RV toilet broke and we learned that parts were not available, so we ordered a new toilet, then ew found a new part. That was a few years ago, the new toilet is still in it's shipping box.

RE: Can Tow providers mount new tire to wheel ?

Or put a hitch on the front of mh and carry the spare there.

RE: Replacement City Water Inlet recommendation

I have some O-ring type hose gaskets, they work nice.

RE: 50A RV with 30A plug?

Google 50 amp RV cord. They are different than what you have. I would guess that some previous owner made some changes, perhaps from RV 30A to 50A.

RE: Mixed Solar upgrade

I read somewhere once that Michigan ranks 47th of the 48 continental states, in available sunshine. Anyone know if there's a chart somewhere that gives the amount of power that you could expect to be produced in your area ?

RE: Dometic toilet valave problem

We had the valve break in the toilet in our mh, don't remember why/how, but were told that a new valve was not available, so we bought a new toilet. Then found and bought a new valve. So for the last couple of years we have a new RV toilet, still in box, sitting in our garage.

RE: Furnace using too much propane

It's been a few years since I've looked, but a RV furnace is the most in- efficient furnace there is. It has 2 fans, 1 motor. 1 pushes air threw the inside of the combustion. The other circulates air over the outside of the combustion chamber, that is heated to warm the RV. When the T-stat calls for heat the fan motor turns on for a pre set time, to purge the inside of the combustion chamber with air from outdoors, before the burner lights. When the RV T-stat reaches the set temperature the burner turns off and fan motor continues to run until cooling the combustion chamber to a preset temperature. It seems to me that it wood be better to put a dampers on the combustion chamber to turn the air flow on/off.

RE: Butt splice connector to join 10 gauge to 12 gauge wire?

Not all wire nuts are alike, I've seen some that you needed to be very watchful of them when installing them. The best are Schlock by 3M.

RE: Furnace - propane stop/start during its on cycle?

Also the squirrel cage fan can get dirty and cause it to not move enough air.

RE: What System panel do i have?

Not what you are asking, but check out "Sea Level" tank sensors. A much better system given levels in %. And not very hard to install. Actually, ‘SeeLevel’ by Garnet. Good catch, thanks.

RE: Lost Cruise Control

Maybe the cutoff switch when the brake pedal is pushed.

RE: Rain shield for sliding window on trailer?

I had a 1200T cover/hood that went over roof vent crank open covers. It was made so you could leave the cover open even when it was raining and it could not rain in your RV, even when driving down the road. It also had a fan. And I think a couple more things. They are no longer available, sure wish I could find one. Seems strange that something as good as that, is no longer made.

RE: Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) --- Great add-on

I carry an inferred temperature sensor, and check our MH tires whenever we stop for a break. I have had a tire valve leak after checking with a tire pressure gauge. A temp. is faster and easier.
