  1. It does have a check valve so you will lose little (it says here in the fine print) I don't think it will cause short cycling because of its location but it's worth a try they are fairly cheap.
  2. From the pictures it looks to be some kind of adapter that is bolted to the inside wheel the tube is hollow so that is not the axle regardless that mess has got to go. Other than losing the wheel when the axle breaks the entire mess is still bolted together including the rear brake drum so you also lose the rear brakes just to make things even more exciting.
  3. Put some water in the fresh tank and see what happens.
  4. Pretty much all of the interior lights fan, pump etc are DC, plugged in they should run off of the converter it is a gadget that makes 12 volts DC it also charges the battery. If it has been replaced with a more modern one they some times get a little "thingy" about no battery.
  5. I agree that's a deal breaker for me too.
  6. Yeah there is no magic it's just a cable pull one end the other moves the same.There was some differences in the mounting but pretty obvious.
  7. Basically you need to know the length it is the only thing that is important even if it's longer that's ok too short obviously won't work. The engines and transmissions were pretty much the same in the Toyotas so if the ends match and the cable is long enough they it should work. Try ebay they list a lot of Toyota cables.
  8. Pretty much if you have seen one you have seen them all the fittings etc are the same you really do not need a higher demand pump but it won't hurt anything.
  9. It's really takes talent to over fill a propane tank. There is a bleeder valve in the top of the tank it must be opened to allow the propane into the tank from the pump otherwise it can't be filled. When it is close to full there is a steady stream of propane gas escaping from the open valve once it is closed you can no longer add propane and a float valve shuts it off also so that leaves a area of compressed propane gas at the top. Propane boils at about -40* so there is always space. The older tanks had no float valve and they could be somewhat over filled liquid propane is dangerous because of the expansion rate once the pressure is relieved it instantly boils expanding into a huge ball of propane gas. Don't remember the expansion numbers are but they are huge.
  10. Propane is by far the most efficient. Running it alone on a battery will discharge the battery takes a lot of energy to make things hot that sounds backwards but the RV fridges require heat to work. As long as you are driving the MH that's OK but not sitting still. Been thousands of miles with my TT never had an issue running gas never blow out.
  11. Does it have a vent in the roof? If it does then a fantastic fan can be used in its place.
  12. If the large vertical cylinder in the compartment is getting warm that means it's trying to work they are slow to get cold and not something you open the door on while you are thinking about what to have for dinner. Most of the DC ones were in motorhomes to take advantage of the running engine but be sure to switch back to gas or AC once you park.
  13. Yes probably because of the junk that was in there!
