The Shade Tree / Re: Gary Brinck in hospital - update

Good news! We've heard through a family member that, following resolution of some complications, Gary has begun recovering quickly, and will be allowed to go home in the next day or so. He obviously still has rehab ahead.
That's great news!

This forum will soon get back to normal, which means Gary will be replying to almost every question asked with accurate & much needed  info.

X2 on the converter. I had all the batteries (3) out of the old Bounder for 2-3 days one time while I replaced battery boxes, cable ends, and ect. Was plugged into 110 and the only thing that didnít work was the steps.

Crawled under the coach today and found no evidence of a leak which is supported by a full reservoir. Everything looks good. I turned the ignition on and the brake is releasing but the motor continues to run and it sounds like it is having a hard time probably and hopefully from a bad pump switch. I researched Corky's links and found that this switch commonly fails however there are still other possibilities that could be causing the problem. I did move ahead and ordered a new pump switch. $79.99 pick up in the morning. I will install that and see if it solves the problem. There are 3 other possibilities that I can think of. The release valve could be passing pressure when closed, bad pump or a bad back flow preventer. There isn't really anything else unless an undetected leak has begun.

It's funny how things happen. The failure occurred just as we were parking for 8 days and had just driven 650 miles over the previous 3 days. One of the results of the pump not shutting down is eventual leaking from the excess pressure. I guess it could have possibly gone unnoticed long enough while driving and have created more problems and possibly been on the side of the road. I just hope it is the switch.

Thank you very much Corky. The information you sent was an enormous help.

I will update as repairs progress.

Yes you are right but you also need to connect it to a small propane tank

... using an 11" WC regulator.  Connecting the 0.4 PSI refrigerator inlet directly to a 80-120 PSI propane tank or disposable cylinder would give some very interesting results.

Computer mapping program shows about 2350 miles from Tampa to Yellowstone.  With very young children, I would suggest you plan on two to three 10 hour travel days to cover significant miles then stop for two nights or more then repeat.  The 2 night stop gives a full day w/o travel for everyone to chill out.  Yes the 10 hour days are tiring but you have a lot of ground to cover. 

What you don't want to do with small children is drive, visit something such as museum or scenic/historic location then drive, park for the night and repeat the next day and the day after and the day after.  It is best to spend a few hard days to get somewhere, set up camp and then visit what there is to do there for part of the day. Plan on 3-5 days to enjoy the place you stop at.  Be sure to get back to camp by 3-4pm to relax and play at the campground.   Adults may enjoy driving, sightseeing, driving, camping for then night and repeat.  We did sometimes before we had kids.  Kids want a place to relax and play or they get cranky. 

Plan on at least a week at Yellowstone, 10 days to 2 weeks is better.
