General Discussion / Re: New fridge for outdoor kitchen?
« Last post by Joezeppy on April 20, 2019, 05:40:18 PM »
coxid, I agree the lack of venting is the primary issue. A friend had a similar set up and his fridge worked great, though, so maybe some work better than others? He traded the camper and we talked about switching out the fridges but never did. 😣

I have thought about rigging up some type of venting but I don't want to cause any potential leaks. I could alter the partition wall between the fridge and the stove/sink which might help with air movement.

I appreciate the replies.
Winnebago-specific issues / Basement Air Blower
« Last post by RedT on April 20, 2019, 05:38:52 PM »

The outdoor blower on my Itasca basement airconditioner (Model #6535-671) quit. Checked Outdoor Blower capacitor (P/N 1499-5631) and it checked bad. Parts guy at RV Parts store said that had been replaced by P/N 1499-567. Only problem is that, other than the larger physical size, the replacement is a 30 MFD capacitor, whereas the one removed is a 12.5 MFD rating. My understanding is that the replacement should not be more than 20% larger rating than the removed one. I purchased the replacement, but am reluctant to install it until I get some confirmation that the larger rating is compatible.

Before I call AirXcel on Monday, does anyone have recent experience that can shed light on this issue? I would surely like to install the capacitor this weekend.

Sounds like you may need to replace the screen washer.... Any Washing  Machine Supply or hardware should have one.

YOu always add to the pump's intake side, never to the high pressure side. I mean why push over 100 PSI when you can push less than 100 PSI (I'm not sure without lookign what proper high pressure is been too long since I had a fulls set of gauges).

Jeez. Oh well fingers crossed this one survives 🙂
You can get an account for DNS, which instead of local, gives you network feeds from east and west coast, you have to provide a copy of RV registration to qualify.  Eliminates the CSR issue once you get it.  I think it is about $20/ month extra.

Our pooch is about the same size and we bought this to help him get in & out easily:

We bought the smaller size but they do have a longer one. He told me that he would definitely recommend this to you.  ;)

Nothing better than a recommendation from another dog.  Is the ramp very heavy and where you to store while you're on the road?

When you buy a lightbulb it says 60 watts or 40 watts.etc..etc.  For the layman, it is easier to leave out the 60/watts per hour at 120 volts AC terminology as it tends to confuse most people nowadays who don't do anything DIY except drive their RVs and vehicles to someone else for repair.

Sorry, it's not "60 watts per hour" it's simply 60 watts.  A watt is an instantaneous measurement of power.  Power used over time equals energy.  The 60 watt light bulb uses 60 watts every second it is connected to a 120 volt power source.

If you leave it on for an hour it will consume 60 watt-hours of energy (0.060 kW-hr).

Your dog isn't the only one that has trouble getting into today's pickups. I have a hard time too.

They should come with ladders!
