1  Main Forum / General Discussion / Toilet flush sticks on on: March 19, 2018, 08:53:39 am
The Thetford Toilet with side foot pedal flush on my 2012 2552 started sticking near the end of our 4 month long winter trip.  Cry
The water keeps flowing until the pedal popped up and then even with the pedal up it kept flowing for another minute,

I can't see where or how to lubricate anything or even disassemble anything to fix it.

Has anyone experienced this or have any suggestions.  nod  ThankYou

Tom, sorry to hear you are moving on. I'm sure you can still add some helpful comments to this site in the future.
Since our RV's are similar I was curious what the dealer is asking for yours.
I hate sites that make you call, they should post their price on the sale page.

The Onan manual says SAE30. Any good quality.

The switch from the factory will still need to be manually rotated(twisted) every now & then, or the same thing will happen. Seal the back so moisture doesn't find its way in.

I just looked up the Garmin 770, it looks perfect. I have an old Garmin Nuvi 2797 which has been discontinued. It is great and I'm sure the 770 has the same features. You can read the screen in bright sunlight, very important. It is not poloroid in the wrong direction. I had one that when I put on my polaroid sunglasses the screen went black for me.
It has lifetime maps,& traffic. And the biggest feature for me is I can upload GPX map files, so it goes where I want it to.

Never follow a GPS unless you look at the whole route, this is hard to do with the GPS unit.
Garmin gives you a free map program for your computer that you can download to your computer called Base Camp. If you plug the Garmin in and do a map update, you can select update maps for Base Camp at the same time. The maps on Garmin & computer are the same.

Now program your trip on your computer, make sure it goes where you want and save it. Then just click  upload to Garmin and the track will be the same. Basecamp is not the easiest to use and it takes some learning and practise, but after that I program all my trips this way. If you still have MS Streets 2013, you can program and save a GPX file and copy it to the Garmin.

Wrong Tom. Gray is smaller on 2551 & 2552.

And water seeks its own level so the tanks will be the same water height in any case.

Forget adjusting. It's corrosion inside the switch. I regularly just give it a few twists and spins. If you replace with same kind, it will still go bad. Twisting does the job. If it is too corroded for this to fix, then buy a sealed switch. PC will send you one like you have for free.

They have an internal thermostat like any line heaters but remember they are using your battery power. Monitor battery voltage so batteries don't drain if you are not plugged into AC power.

There are 8 nut covers. 4 unscrew off with mine.

No spare unless you choose that option and then the rear is the same.

Here is the answer from Jim Byrnes.

.  As you noticed the pricing tool is down on the website, but this isn't permanent and it isn't a new strategic direction.  We are simply making some changes/updates to the site.  We know that this is a valuable tool to our perspective customers and forum members and we hope to have this back up and running soon.  Thanks for your patience and as I said I really appreciate you reaching out.

All the best!

If not charging, night. Battery voltage should be 12.7 volts max, when fully charged and still in sun, voltage should be 13.2v. When not fully charged 14.4 to 14.7 V.

Take voltage with digital voltmeter that reads battery but no other current in those lines.

We pulled in yesterday at the Corps of Engineers campground at a lock on the Caloosahatchee River near Ft Myers ,FL.
Today Barry and Sue arrived in their 2551  and  Fred & Joan (fandj) pulled in with their 2552.

It's a first for me to camp with two other active PC members at such a small campground.

Almost like a  FL reunion.

In 2006, that switch was an option. However your Ford alternator should still charge your house battery.
Put a digital voltmeter on your house battery, then startup your engine, voltage should go up to 14.2 to 14.7 volts

I don't show the generator/120V power transfer switch. It is automatic as described by Jatrax.
But all the wiring I show in sketch is the same for 2006 except for Inverter & that switch.
