  1. Rough Shape. Need Parts RV?

    The rear axle is the good one, removed intact from the rv its worth more. As it is the haul it away value is around $400, somebody is going to expend a lot sweat to cherry pick the good stuff after they haul it away.
  2. Furnace help

    Even if the gas valve is off or stuck, the blower should come on when the thermostat triggers. So check your fuses.
  3. Rough Shape. Need Parts RV?

    No worries mate, it will buff out. Do you know the year and the make? The major value could be in the rear axle assy IF its the right one. A photo of the rear wheel would help.
  4. Solar barely runs refrigerator

    Now that we know what your doing some questions 1. Does the refer work right when plug into 115 v at home? Compressor cycles and all that. 2 What size and type is the battery.. 24 or 27 size, flooded cell or AGM? 3. Is the controller good. Float voltage should be 13.5v, bulk charge voltage is around 14,6 If all is good then more solar and battery might be the answer. General WAG math if the compressor runs 30% of the time your need 80 amp hours (AH) a day. A 27 battery has a safe discharge of 50 AH. A 100w panel will out put around 45 AH a day. If you drive every day then the alternator should give you a fully charged battery and you will only need to run 10 hr a day on battery. It might work out, but a couple of days boondocking and you have warm beer. So start with your local Craigs list and look for a 2 way rv refer. Have them plug it in for 6 hours before you go to look at it
  5. Solar barely runs refrigerator

    Things are getting confused. So Gringo are you running a 115v ac dorm refer or a RV refer??
  6. Solar barely runs refrigerator

    In the sun with a solar setup the battery should be 13.5v +. Check all wires for good contact.

    Remember that using an inverter means that your amp draw is around 10 to1. A small refer draws about 1 amp that means your inverter is drawing about 10 amps from your battery.

  9. Houston flood took my toyhome

    I think that the salvage yards in Texas are going to be FULL. There has been so much in the news about flooded cars with salvage titles. I don't see a big market for cars from the Houston area
  10. Looks OK. The seal fits into a machined rim there is a bottom lip that keeps the seal from going into far.
  11. Houston flood took my toyhome

    Reality sucks. Good luck with the recovery
  12. Houston flood took my toyhome

    Take the money and run don't look back. You have a good foundation of Toy knowledge. Use it to find a new Toy house or something bigger. Right now is the cheap time to buy.
  13. Less noise when its not running more or the same when its on. The amount of noise depends on fan dia, blade count and blade shape. Current best idea is 2 fans one hooked to engine temp the other to the ac. A single smart controller will control both fans even turning both on for severe overheat.
  14. That looks like the much sought Sharper Image cooler
