Re: Leak! Water draining out above side door.

Is it just to cover up the seam from the panel and hold the window in place or does it sandwich the window to the frame to help prevent leaks? Thanks for posting the photo. It does both things that you mention above. There is not a sealing material for the aluminum trim ring that goes on the inside...

Re: Leak! Water draining out above side door.

Fmedina771, Be aware that the rubber seal, for the fixed glass window that fits around the perimeter of the aluminum frame, relies on the gap between the outside edge of the glass and the aluminum frame to achieve proper snap of the rubber to hold the rubber seal in place. So be careful to get the w...

Re: Leak! Water draining out above side door.

... the stationary glass that does not slide seems to have a bad seal. What keeps that glass in place on the frame? I have a 1993 B190. The Hehr windows in our B190 uses a thin double sided tape to bond the stationary glass to the window frame. From memory, it seems like it is around 1/16" thick an...

Re: Solar Geeks Needed

If I was going to buy a 300 watt inverter today, this is the one I would buy. It is pricey, but has many advantages over less expensive inverters. It is pure sine wave so there is no risk of it not being able to power sensitive electronic devices as might be the case with a less expensive modified s...

Re: Air Conditioner Capacitor

Great news that your new capacitor has you up and running! Glad you got buy with the cheaper solution! As far as sealants... I have taken to using "3M Marine Adhesive/Sealant Fast Cure 5200" for anything on the exterior. It is of the polyurethane family of sealants, sticks very well, stays pliable, ...

Re: Solar Geeks Needed

If you have not already purchased the MPPT controller, I would take a look at Bogart Engineering's Trimetric power meter and their new solar charge controller. Like 190-b-651, I also use the Trimetric meter. Liked it so much, I am on my third install with Bogart's hardware. Among the good points of ...

Re: Solar Geeks Needed

Great questions. Q1) But can we hook things up so if we do run the generator it will charge the old house battery AND top off the AGM's? A1) Yes Q2) Is that even possible to wire? A2) Yes, it can be wired to accomplish that. However, you would be choosing to use dissimilar batteries so it goes beyon...

Re: Buying it back...

Sorry to hear that it didn't hold temperature. Seems notable that it got down to temperature in a seemingly normal fashion and then couldn't hold it.

When the fridge temp was 60 degrees, what was the temperature of the freezer compartment?

Re: Buying it back...

Just to pass along a tip... While I had the fridge out of the B190, I stapled my fiberglass batting to the inside walls and ceiling of the fridge cavity in the cabinetry of the B190. The batting I used had paper on one side and plastic sheeting on the other side. The fridge just slid right in making...

Re: Buying it back...

Skater, Great that you can run experiments on it while its out of the B190. Nice to be able to access the back to work on baffles, fans and such. I am not sure how much difference fine tuning the baffle placement would make. However, the baffle instructions for my Norcold place the start of the lowe...
