Trailers & Fifthwheels / Re: Coleman Mach Airxcel problem
« Last post by fisherbrent on December 11, 2019, 05:40:54 PM »
Gary,
That is correct, the EMS reports no errors.

Now for the good news!

The insulated 110-volt wire was found to be touching the metal mount frame. It appears that this wire may have rubbed the edge of this mount and then was close enough to arc (intermittently). This wire also had a sharp twisted angle that MIGHT have contributed. And, finally, the AC control board had the neutral and ground wires reversed.

Not sure if it was any one of these or the combination, but it does also explain why the GFCI was also tripping.

Thanks for your help and maybe this will help others.

General Discussion / Re: Problem with Suburban oven pilot flame
« Last post by JackL on December 11, 2019, 05:35:45 PM »
I called Suburban today and found out that they had a problem with the pilots with the orifice being  too small and they had a recall.
 Naturally I was never informed of it and mine is now two and a half years old.
 Suburban gave me the part number, but said they could only sell it too a RV dealer or a licensed plumber.
 I will try to get one at my local RV dealer and then replace it myself.

Thanks to those who tried to help

and is satisfied with the tethering
Actually, Rene, it's not tethering, just using a hotspot function that is built in to the phone, so no separate device at all.

I stated that we had iPhones. What possible relevance does you having Android phones hooked up to a hotspot have?

This is precisely why so many of these threads get off topic so quickly.
I was NOT off-topic. If your iPhone has a built in hotspot, then you can use that. ReRead my post above, where I said nothing about the Android being hooked up to a hotspot, but rather that I use the hotspot function that is built in to the phone.

I don't really appreciate that "tone of voice," but I did answer you properly, you just mis-understood. Should I not answer just because I don't have an iPhone, even though I can provide relevant information?

Sticker says 240 v 3 phase if that helps
Exactly what Isaac-1 suspected and it explains why it could run fine with that adapter.  I'll leave it to him the expand on the subject.

The field of 4-down towable cars changes yearly, and you have to be cautious about engine & transmission combinations in addition to year/make/model.  Motorhome Magazine publishes lists of 4-down towable vehicles at each new model year, so check their archive of annual "Dinghy Towing" lists.

https://www.motorhome.com/download-dinghy-guides/

Many (not all) Jeep models are indeed 4-down (flat) towable, but they are by no means the only ones. Price-wise, though, they aren't really any more expensive than other models. If the budget requires under $30k, or under $15k, or whatever, you simply have to go older or lower on the size & luxury scale. Many Chevy Sonics are towable, for example, and you can buy a brand new one for well under $30k. Alternately, a nice Honda CRV of 2010-2012 vintage would also get you into a moderate price category.
