Probably a bad check valve in the water pump

Winegard has an app that's handy for locating both OTA towers and satellite locations using augmented reality aiming that works quite well. I have the Android version, and there's also an iOS version. They also have an OTA tower only app with augmented reality aiming. Both are free...

General Discussion / 6 volt vs. 12 volt
« Last post by IBTripping on October 21, 2018, 03:33:52 PM »
I need to get one or more deep cycle batteries for my TT. I've learned a lot researching this forum about battery use & care for dry camping. While I do most of my own maintenance/repair, I don't know much about DC. My question: Does a 6v 100AH deliver the same amount of service as a 12v 100AH battery for operating RV electrical devices? I'm finding a 6v costs less than a 12v.

Yesterday we had some strong winds here that knocked out electric in some parts of the RV park we stay in, ours was out. I was attempting to move rather than run the generator all night but, the old big block chevy would not start, I check for gas at the carburetor which it was getting. Next I pulled a plug wire off at the distributor cap and cranked, no snap or arching. I have had no signs of anything going bad so, where would you start, at the coil in the cap or other places? Can the coil be checked with simple multimeter? Thanks in advanced

I submit that anyone who needs lease to own a 1989 27 footer probably worth $4400-5000  should not be owning something that old. What will you do WHEN  not if it breaks down.

No disrespect is intended to anyone with my comment.
This showstopping MCI Coach always draws a crowd when it pulls up. This retro bus is equipped with many creature comforts including a 7.5kw Kohler propane generator, two 14,000 BTU cruise air conditioners, three Fantastic ceiling fans, large fridge/freezer combo, built in spice rack and food pantry. Plenty of built-in storage space with six feet of closet space, dressers, and 26 drawers through-out. The roomy bedroom has a queen size bed and the sofa turns into a double bed for extra guests. The bathroom is split with a full size shower on one side and bathroom and sink across the hallway. The bathroom sink and shower have custom hand-laid tile. Enjoy family time at the dining table and swivel chairs in the front of the bus. Storage is no problem with spacious bays under the bus, which open from both sides for easy access.

The bus underwent a major rehaul in 1970 after a short life as a Canadian tour bus. It has been well maintained and has many new parts, including: a new 6V92T engine with jake brakes, a 10 speed Fuller transmission with overdrive, and Ross Intergal power steering. The rear axle has been rebuilt, and new front windshields and mount rubbers have been installed. The bus can hold 150 gallons of fresh water and also has a 175 gallon holding tank. Its ability to hold 180 gallons of fuel and 34 gallons of propane, makes it easy to enjoy long road trips.

I have had that happened several times, always when my water pump was dying.  And it always happens when I am gone for the day or overnight.  Several times neighbors have had to turn the city water off to stop the flood.  And I have on my 6th water pump in a little over 6 years, believe it or not, so I am an expert at failing water pumps.  (My system has been checked several times and no one can find the problem, but I am certain there is an air leak somewhere in my water system.)   And I do use a pressure regulator, by the way.

What is probably happening is that there is a small or large hole in the water pump diaphram or somewhere alongside the diaphram that is allowing water to pass through when the city water is turned on.  Replacing the water pump immediately solved the problem.

My other problem is that if I do not use my water pump for several days because I am hooked up to city water, it loses its prime and be very, very hard to get working again, so I also almost entirely use my water tanks instead of hooking up to city water.

Another tale of a good RV Park manager ... I had a long term monthly space in an RV Park while I was working in Los Angeles, and was preparing to leave mid-month for a two week vacation.  Though my rental covered the entire vacation period, the park owner asked my permission to rent out the space while I was gone and offered to split the revenue 50/50 with me.

 When I got back I found the credit covered most of my next month's rent.
