Re: Solar Connection to Converter

That would work. Whether it connects directly to the battery or elsewhere in the system, it'll work. There may be a slight loss of current by running it that way, but probably not enough to worry about, especially given the size of the battery cables running to the fuse panel.

Re: Doghouse

Can you link to it? Cause... searching for " Dog House " or even " Doghouse " point to no threads except for this thread here... FYI, the built-in search on forums is usually not very good, and we're no exception (hey, it's free software). You often get better results by going to google and typing ...

Re: Gas off, oven burner still burns

Here's my 2cts. The shut off valve isn't sealing fully, allowing propane to continue to flow a little. If you aren't comfortable working on propane valves then I think you do need to go to a propane shop or rv dealer to have the valve either replaced or rebuilt. There are rubber gaskets that get dr...

Re: Buying it back...

Got the fuel diverter installed this morning! I started to remove the front tank, but I ran out of time. I had to disconnect the propane lines and move a ground wire that was connected to them. There’s a shield (I think to protect the fuel tank in case the drive shaft decides to explode) I have to r...

Re: Bye, bye sewer hose door

"Abie Sea", I've got a little more work to do this weekend before I post any more photos. However, I will say, in the storage compartment below the shower seat, I have a plastic container holding a new 15' sewer hose and gloves, I've got my fresh water hose, and a standard tool box tucked away as w...

Re: Has anyone replaced the fridge with a compressor-type? Like Vitrifrigo? Or NovaKool?

I know some people have just cut the green and black wires and pigtailed them together. This would give the same effect, but I wanted to put a fuse in the system, and figured it was cleaner to just use the fuse panel, especially since it was right there and didn't even require me splicing in any ex...

Re: Basic (?) 12v wiring question

Photos of your actual wiring/layout would help... And someone may correct me, but your 12-volt system is probably wired so that the negative side of the circuit is the vehicle frame/chassis itself. So, you'd attach the negative side of the connection to any good solid metal connection in that case....

Re: B190 database

So many things to add to the forum, like nearly 10K of stacked up repairs after buying ours in Cleveland in February, 2018 (generator rebuild, lots of electrical parts malfunctioning, full fluid exchange, re-seat the a/c unit, fix unseen shower leak, new water pump and hot water heater...). It's be...

Re: Refrigerator 12v ignition sense wiring

I would remove the relay and run the white wire (probably need to splice a new wire in) to the RV fuse panel. But mine has extra fuse slots available; yours might not. If it doesn't, I'd look for a circuit with only a few things on it.

Please post the VIN. Preferably also the Airstream VIN (under the hood, starts with 1B9...). Thanks.

Re: Hello from Canada

Welcome to the site! Would you mind posting (or sending privately) the Ford VIN so I can add your B190 to the database? Based on the story it seems unlikely I have that one already. The tow package was an option and many of them had it - it doesn't guarantee that they actually towed anything with it...

Re: Wireless Air Pressure & Temperature Tire Monitor.

After three blowouts on our trailer, we have a TST TPMS. Seems to work pretty well. My longer-term plan is to upgrade the one for the truck and move the old one to the B190.
