  1. has it ever worked before? if yes, then it may be clogged with trash/calcium etc. if it never worked, i would think that maybe they didn't complete the hookups? can you see the black tank? on the opposite side from the drain is the flush. it may have a vacum breaker in the line that may have "stuck" or sumtin like that. steve
  2. Get under your slide and start checking the wires going out with the slide. Look for frayed wires, melted insulation. When it moves, there must be a wire either grounding out on the slide frame, or hitting another wire when it moves. Steve
  3. i know the solar panel was to charge the batteries, the ones i have replaced came from the the mfg of the a/c's and connect to the DC circuit behind the lower ac ceiling assy. if this is one you installed yourself, then i am sure you can find a replacement pretty easy. steve
  4. its gonna depend on the make of the air condintioner. get that info and any rv sevice center/mobile tech will be able to help you. steve
  5. hey brett, what do you think of blue ox's new cockpit adjustable steering control? from my tech point of view, its easy to install, not nearly as expensive as the "other" adjustable one. as an owner, i think i may like it as well. steve
  6. read a post from a chemical eng. AND a rv'er, that suggested using the unscented bleach, 1 cup per 15 gal of capacity. and doing all the stuff you all are talking about. but then drain and add 1 cup white vinegar per 15 gal cap and repeating, thus turning the clorine to salt water and thus neautralizing the bleach. drain, breif flush and you are ready fer da road. i am gonna try it, so i will let ya know how it goes. steve ps. Semper Fi msg!
  7. My dealer said these readings were due to the tank shape but after crawling under this just does not seem reasonable. Suggestions? NEVER believe a dealer! steve
  8. Replace them both while you are at it. Make sure you have enough oil in the reservoir if you think it is the oil switch, The two together are like 25 bucks. Steve
  9. i suspect there is a vacum breaker located somwhere above where the line comes back down and gos to the tank. they usually put em in the wall slightly above the toilet water level. the only way to get to it i have found is to remove the wall panel where you think it is, then you can get at it to replace it. hope this helps steve
  10. yeah i have the good govenor too and even use it as a tech when i do mobile service, as ya never know what you are gonna find in the campgrounds. i always test park pedestals with it before i hook up my mh. i even made a test rig that lets me check the 50 amp plug, by isolating the hots to each recep and then use the govenor to check out the connections. steve
  11. AMEN Brett. can we like tatoo that on folks hands? put a decal on thier shore power cords? and a good website as usually tom. steve
  12. hey ret welcome! ask q's post your trips, and have fun! Semper Fi! steve
  13. glad ya got er fixed up top! i will say camping worlds rv university was a great place to learn the trade. i was very impressed by ed sweetman and ralph fluery and jesse rossem, the instructors there. too bad they closed it though. i wonder if jack was a graduate of it. steve
  14. do y ou have a whole house filter? is the backflow preventer on the back of your city water connection ok? my first bet would be a whole house filter. if it has a bypass, try that n see what ya get, it not replace the filter cartridge. steve
