  • DougH, I wasn't thinking about using the long ones that they provided.  I was thinking more like a 1/4/20 or smaller machine screw the same length as the screws that they provide only drilling and tapping the flange would provide similar security as…
  • gbell said: Call Elsie, she helped me when mine fell out. There is a small clip at the top and bottom of the door that holds it in. If you look carefully you might find it near the door track, and fix it.  i did.  gbell is right.  The sa…
  • DougH, Do you think there would be any advantage to drilling and tapping the flange so you could use a threaded machine screw instead of the TPI screws or am I over thinking this thing? 
  • Okay Verna,  what happened to "if I can do it, you can do it" ? 
  • So it looks like you're getting ready to install it on that new 400.
  • Thanks Verna,  I'm go'in for it.  If you see me coming up your street, you'll know it didn't go well. 
  •      Verna, I did find the 14"x14" description on the etrailer site and I also watched the installation video.  I'll verify the size which I assume is the same as yours and order it.  I appreciate the info on the white vs. the smoke too.   Thank you…
  • We weren't set up but here we are in the Badlands of South Dakota.
  • dsfdogs: I like the idea of the tire inflater.  That's rechargeable and works on both right?
  •      We just finished a nine thousand mile coast to coast trip and here is how we do it.  First, we never bring blue ice freezer packs.  Once they thaw, they're useless and since you can't refreeze them on the road you just have another thing or thi…
  • rfuss928,  The metrovac looks like a good size for the [email protected] and is kind of what I had in mind.  Does it have a bag or is it bagless?
  • BrianZ, You should write an illustrated book of [email protected] mods and sell it online and at all the get togethers.   Great idea on this one and looks nice and neat too.  Sure beats my old swimming pool pole held on with zip ties. 
  • When we stayed at the nucamp factory during construction, not only was it difficult getting in and out during construction, the excavators had cut the underground cable to the hookups and there wasn't any power. I don't think they have or ever had w…
  • If you used the two spare small glass fuses supplied with the Alde unit, hurry up and order some more from nucamp.  These are not available at most hardware and camping stores as they are a real oddball.  They are a 3.15A/ 250V fuse.  Not a 3.15A / …
  • Laura,       Sue and I have also stayed at the Coshocton KOA that Verna mentioned.  It is one of the nicest KOA's I have ever been in.  The young couple that run and own it are great and we will be going there again the next time we're out at nucamp…
  •      Check out this thread.  At 15' x 15' it might be just what you need.   https://tab-rv.vanillacommunity.com/discussion/3141/15x15-point-loma-dome-shelter#latest

  •      This is truly the weak spot on the [email protected] I have probably read more about this cob job than almost any other problem on the camper.  I have also had both of my front trim pieces replaced once by my dealer in New York and once at the factory.     …

  •      Fergie, congratulations on the new house.  What a thrill moving to such a great place with so many opportunities for adventure.  I can see where the hotspot would come in very handy as you're getting set up in your new surroundings.        We a…
  •      Well we're four weeks into our cross country trip and at present resting comfortably at our youngest son's house in Southern California.  The hotspot is working great.  It does consume data a little faster that I thought it might but it's easy …
  • Brain,      Great setup.  We've been looking for something that can serve as a hold open but most of the hardware we have looked at doesn't work in such a confined space. We'll be giving this a try.  Thanks for the measurements....
  •      Ratkity, Thanks for the offer but it looks like I won't be needing it.  The guys at nucamp were able to simulate my problem by warming the controller with a heat gun to mimic hot temperatures in the camper when it's all closed up on a sunny day…
  • ChrisandAlexis, My fear now is that when we get to the factory this week, that it won't go into the error message. 
  • Do you think that would work to cool the control panel and possibly get rid of the error message when it gets overheated and defaults?
  • "tech in a can" ?   Like the General said in the movie War Games, "I'd pee on a spark plug if I thought it would help."  As far as a specific time, probably only as it relates to when the sun gets high in the sky.  It's been cool and cloudy today so…
  •      Here is the link to the Clorox site that I posted last year in the beginning of this thread.  It's a good resource when playing with chlorination whether sanitizing the [email protected] or stuck in the zombie apocalypse.      https://www.clorox.com/dr-laund…
  •      I should mention that I have well water and I do this a couple of times a year to my well and house water system using the same method.  Of course I use about 8 ounces for the well.  I think SAM is right, if your using chlorinated city water, 1…
  •      This thing with working during cool hours and getting the error during the heat of the day is strange.  It seems to me it must be due to some kind of temperature induced expansion and contraction.  Whether that's physical or electrical, who kno…
  • I mixed 6 ounces of plain Clorox in a half gallon juice jug with plain water. I poured that into a 6 gallon potable water jug and dumped it into the fresh water tank.  I filled it up the rest of the way with the hose and circulated it through out th…
  • Spencer at Alde although having said he has never encountered anything like this before said it can only be one of three things.  As you said, the control panel, the circuit board or the wiring harness.  He even said the connection error is somethin…
  •      Thanks Photomom,  I have been talking to Alde and they have been great.  It just so happens that I am going to be a the nucamp factory next week and hopefully we can get this behind us.        Just to make this problem more interesting, here is…
