RE: fridge level?

Open fridge outside compartment Look at the absorber tube bundle....large slanted tubes Are they running downhill....OK Are they level....no downward slope ----NOPE Are they running uphill .....NOPE Can you clarify on the uphill/downhill? Which side should be lower, as a person faces the outside compartment? Absorber tubes slant downward to help gravity flow If when parked those tubes are NOT slanted downward then gravity flow will be disrupted See how they are slanted downward http://i2.wp.com/historysafariexpress.airstreamlife.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/DSC002-Broken-refrig-drain-tube.jpg height=400 width=500

RE: Coachmen Freelander 23BB Water Heater Bypass

Is there a line that goes between cold & hot on backside of WH Tank? The 2 valves....both handles should be 'in-line' with that connecting line Cold Handle UP & Hot Handle DOWN https://rv101withmarkpolk.files.wordpress.com/2019/10/two-bypass-resized.jpg?w=750 height=300 width=400 OR the handles should turn 180* and point towards bypass line if like this set up https://rvlikeapro.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/2-valve-bypass-mode-1024x576.jpg height=300 width=400

RE: 12V or 6V

If one 6v battery fails you have NO DC for RV If one 12V battery fails you still have 12V DC for RV 6V battery typically will have higher amp/hour then 12V Two 6V is series...voltage doubles/AH stays same (6V/225AH=12V/225AH) Two 12V in parallel...voltage stays same/AH doubles (12V/105AH=12V/210AH) So Two 6V in Series will have slight advantage over Two 12V in Parallel

RE: Water heater question

Loss of air pocket Top of tank above the hot out dip tube should be an air pocket Water swells when heated Air pocket helps control increase in pressure Water can not be compressed so pressure increases causing T&P to weep https://i.imgur.com/tNecPIE.jpg?1 height=300 width=400

RE: Water heater question

Clean the spark electrode with some emery cloth, clean/tighten wire connector at terminal on transformer, check/adjust spark gap 1/8" - 3/16" It provides return path for flame proving signal (milliamp signal circuit board senses to keep gas valve open)

RE: Shower wall sealant not sticking

Jayco had the same problem for YEARS. Here is what we used and is BETTER than Silicone. This DAP you buy the CLEAR. It comes out white but dries completely CLEAR, NOT a opaque glob like clear silicone. It will adhere to glass/fiberglass and Plastic. Doug DAP Kwik Seal Plus 10.1 oz.

RE: Humming sound in 5th wheel??

Xantrex Pro XM1000 is an 'INVERTER' used to inverter DC (from batteries) to AC for that residential fridge 'CONVERTER' used to converter AC from AC Source (shore/gen) to DC for the 12V System and maintaining/charging batteries You could have BOTH...Inverter and Converter If you unplug shore power then Converter will stop operating --- Converter Fan Should stop as it is AC Powered If you turn off Inverter....then it will stop Inverter Manual Determine which one is making the noise. Humming could be 'Normal' or an indication of component failing

RE: Etiquette and Courtesy for Tourists & Visitors

Man..... If I hadn't been the nosey 'tourist' during our 7 yrs FTng I would not have gotten the 'inside scoop' that only the 'locals' know Even when I was overseas I was that nosey tourist asking all kinds of questions, seeking information, gaining advice/knowledge Respect should be key. Give it and get it back But their are some folks that just don't want to engage...they should quietly disengage

RE: Regular or premium

The problem with comparing the GM Ecotec 6.2L with all those other engines is that the 6.2L has a compression ratio of 11.5:1 while all the others stated are 11.0:1 or lower. Compression ratio is what mainly dictates the need for premium. The higher the compression ratio, the greater the need for premium fuel. Hemi 5.7L- 10.5:1 GM 5.3L- 9.6:1 for non-Ecotec (11.0:1 for 2014+ Ecotec) GM 6.0L- 9.7:1 GM 8.1L- 9.1:1 Ford 7.3L- 10.5:1 Bingo^^^^ Chevy 6.2 ---premium gas

RE: Brake shoe size 2007 Cedar Creek Silverback

2007 Silverbacks use 5200#, 6000# or 7000# axles....model dependent Which if Dexter use the same 12" x 2" shoes Complete assemblies are easiest and cheaper Vs individual components Which model is yours? Check axle tube for sticker/data as to which axle Also check for MFG data info Inside the trailer...typically attached to inside of a cabinet door

RE: Etiquette and Courtesy for Tourists & Visitors

If I didn't approach and engage in a conversation with the guy and his 2 girls in the horse drawn buggy I wouldn't have had a the great experience that occurred. Learned a lot first hand about the Amish Culture and people. even got invited to their farm which was a real blessing. At CG right near Devils Tower, WY we came out one morning to find 6 Japanese girls sitting at our pic-nic table having their breakfast. Instead of running them off we engaged with them. Found out they thought they were in a 'park' .....very apologetic about taking our space/table and were ready to pack up. We convinced them to stay, finish breakfast and enjoy their moment. Very interesting conversation. Engaging with folks IS part of Life's Journey and can be beneficial to both.
