Re: Chasing Water Leaks

Thanks. I had been in a rut, thinking only how to control water from the hose while looking for a leak and envisioning substantial water clean up issues. I hadn't thought about using the internal system. Someone can stand by the pump switch while I am checking pipes in those tight spaces where they ...

Stuck Waste Gate Valve

While inspecting under the chassis, I noticed that the dump valve at the black water tank was open. I think I left it open to drain the sink a year ago when all of the rest of the fresh water system as not in service. I tried to close the valve and there was resistance. I am thinking of some lubrica...

Chasing Water Leaks

I was wondering if any one had a special process for detecting water leaks that are not obvious. Last year I hooked up a hose up to the outside access on my 1989 B and turned on the water. Immediately there was water coming out under the house apparently in the area under the cabinets making its way...

Re: Gray vs Black water tanks

I stumbled on this looking to deal with a black water tank shut off valve. My 89 has grey water by pass that will shunt it off of the black water system in the cabinet over the hot water tank and sends it to the deck and across to collect the bathtub drain and then into the section of the waste syst...

Re: Replacing the converter

If the problem is the converter I can do no better than recommend this post https://www.b190.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=839 the top of the electrical. I had several problems with fried battery. The installation was relatively easy. My van is a 89, so yours may be different. I have had no problems s...

Re: Fuse for bunk lights?

If you find the answer, Let me know. My B190 is an 89 and I have non working bunk lights as well. The previous owner wired a reading light over the couch behind the drivers seat. I have not been able to trace the wires to that light back to its source. I suspect that the new light might have disconn...

Re: Cooling

Finally had a pressure test, which confirmed all things normal except the need to replace the water pump. I had this done as when I was over the the open engine compartment, I could hear noises from the shaft in the water pump. I do have a related question concerning whether anyone has installed a c...

Re: Fuel mileage

The only real problem with the poor gas mileage is that it is difficult to carry enough fuel in remote areas. One has to carefully plan around available gas stations and when possible where the cheapest gas is.

Re: Cooling

I forgot to mention, that there appears to be little leakage of coolant when the vehicle is cooled down and stationary.

Cooling

Last year on a trip that covered The Olympic National Park and the SW Vancouver Island back country I experienced overheating problems and a leak of coolant under pressure. It may or may not be related to problems I have experienced in the past when overheating seemed to impact the flow of fuel from...

Re: Bye, bye sewer hose door

I will be interested in the pictures. My 89 compartment opening will not fit connection to the dump in the small space provided. The configurations may be different. I would be interested in how all of this fit in the available space.

Re: DC problems

Skater solved the problem by noting that because his replacement board in the original string did not require the blue wire from the original converter to be attached, my old board required that the positive terminal be attached to the grommit where the blue wire was originally attached and that sol...

Re: Replacing the converter

Skater: Many Thanks. I had determined that there was 13.1v potential between the grommit on the board where the blue wire was attached and the positive on the board from the battery and the converter. I was debating whether to jump between the positive terminal and that grommet to see what woild hap...

DC problems

I recently replaced my converter with the PD 9260c and it seems to be working. However the DC power to the house is not working. AC working well and DC at the board terminals is 12.58 v as is the battery when the converter is off and 13.6 at both locations when the converter is on. I get no lights, ...
