  1. I have a 93 Dutchmen that came with a A&E 8500 awning. I left it open in a storm and man it tore it up. I got everything working again except the retractable part. I loaded both sides with torsion with the awning open, was this right. It will not roll up by itself. Can anyone help?
  2. I noticed that the trailer was not exactly level. I re-leveled and then turned the fridge to A/C. The next morning I had ice in the ice tray. 12 hours later the ice was melted and no cooling. Turned it to gas and ran for 24 hrs. and nothing. All fuses seem to be ok. At least the ones that I found. I did notice that there is no chassis bonding wire, where should this wire be coming from. It doesn't look like the last owner had it hooked up and they claim that the fridge worked for them.
  3. Thanks again. I look forward to using these troubleshooting proceedures this weekend. I'll let you know how it goes.
  4. Thank you so much for the info. I will not be able to work on it again til Saturday, but I feel comfortable doing the checks you described. On the propane side I was able to get it lit and have a good blue flame but I noticed that the flame ignitor does not turn off. If I was reading the manual right it is supposed to stop clicking after the flame comes on and automatically come back on when the flame goes out. There is also a flame indicator light that seems to work backwards light goes out when there is a flame.
  5. Hello to all. I am new to this forum and new to the RV world. I just bought a 1993 Dutchmen and it has a Norcold 462. When I first brought it home I plugged it in and the freezer made ice after about six hours. The next day I went and checked and it was not working. I am getting 120V to the power plug, but that is as far as I know how to troubleshoot this type of appliance. Can anyone help?
