31  Main Forum / General Discussion / mercerator pump on: August 20, 2016, 08:04:57 pm
A couple of weeks ago I had to replace a broken gray water gate valve and the connecting base on the pump housing.  I disconnected the two wires going to the pump not taking note of which wire went to which connector (black and white coming down and then red and black after the splices going to the pump).   I put everything back together and went out for a couple of weeks of travel.   I came home with a full tank and went to unload and found the macerator did not work!  Motor ran but nothing came out, heard weird sounds coming from the tank.  I discovered that there was suction at the hose end!  The light bulb came on at that time.....I had reversed the two wires resulting in the pump rotating in the wrong direction.  Lesson learned...take note of which colors goes where before disconnecting!  All is A-OK now.  Ron G.

I appreciate Kermit's creativity but wish he would spend sometime playing with new options for PC to utilize the F-550 chassis and a nice 34'  floorplan.  I would be in line for the first one to roll of the line.

HenryJ....the biggest question in regards to the slide  leak is...is it leaking from inside the box or outside the box?  Depending on where you felt the wetness in the coach will help determine where the leak might have started.   if the wall of the slide is dry you know it leaked from what I would suspect first....there is a tray/lip (approx. 8" wide) that runs along the bottom of the slide and is a fixed to the coach,  there is a bead of sealant that runs along the inside edge that basically acts as a dam to prevent water that accumulates normally from leaking into the coach.  If the coach was not level and tipped inward with a very heavy rain,  water will build up and merely go over the dam into the coach.   I have had to put additional sealant down to build that dam up.  I had a leak around my slide and Kermit told me to make sure the small plastic down spout was intact ( I honestly thought he was crazy), sure enough it had broken off during the winter and water was actually running up hill and getting behind the slide topper track and running down the inside of the wall.  I put a new spout on and have not had one single drop of water since.  Kermit said he had seen a few  just like mine over the years.   Kermit is a tremendous resources when it comes to trouble shooting. best of luck, Ron G.

That is a tough one.  3M has a super product specifically for adhesive removing (it is labeled exactly that)  that you can purchase at and automobile parts store.  It is like $12.00 for the aerosol can and it removes any and all adhesive I have ever sprayed it on.  The issue is you would have to depend on the spray actually soaking under the laminate for it to do its job, not sure you are going to be able to accomplish that task?  Hate to say it but it might be cheaper and easier to order another flip up from PC and hope that one does not get the sags as well.   Perhaps in the future you might consider leaving it up when you know hot weather is coming?

Definitely no change in performance that I can tell....to be honest, I think I have lost at least a  few 10ths of MPG according to my Scangage.

Sure sounds like a loose fitting under there somewhere and the extra PSI from the city water side is causing it to really leak.....

Frecklestweety...I am not a big fan of CW and find that they run high from the price perspective but to be honest I do not think $450 is out of line.  If you have the dollars I would invest in front shocks as well, the weight on the front end of the E-450 takes its toll on the front end.  I might suggest you all so check all other fluid change schedules....I just changed all of my fluids on my 2012...... transmission, radiator, and rear end simply because of the time elapsed and  not mileage (14,000). My vehicle sits out all winter so temperature change causes moisture build up and lubricant fatigue.  best of luck

Dale and Cindy...Carol is right on the mark with her temperature control knob theory.  Turn it to blue and I bet it comes right on.

Dale and Cindy....Sometime post the 2012 model year that new switching system was installed.  I wish I had that set up on my 2012!   The old gravity fill approach is fine but having the ability to fill the storage tank at the turn of a knob is very convenient.  I am sure Kermit is correct in that the bypass valve just must have some "leak by" because of poor design or poor quality?  You might try cutting the water pressure back some to see if that makes a difference?  65-70 pounds is a lot of pressure on a little plastic valve.  Good luck with the installation of your new valve.   Ron G.

bruce...I am sorry but I have no quick and easy solution. I think I would try a very light marine gel coat restorer or very fine rubbing compound.  Best of luck I do not envy the work your are faced with.

I travel at approx. 65MPH most of the time.   Might bump up to 70 if the traffic is really moving but never over 70.

Recall done, no difference that I can tell.  No change in MPG.

Sarz....Going to be differing opinions on the jack question I am sure....Having had two PC's I would not be without them but if the dollars are a concern I can see why you might skip the jacks.  Will leave the E-350 question to others, my preference would be to upgrade to the E-450 but if the price is right on the coach you are looking at on the E-350 I would not worry to much about the CCC.  You will get a much rougher ride in the smaller coaches (2400,2350) based on the E-450 so everything is a trade off I would say.  best of luck.

I have been told that because the windshield is now such a very integral part of the total structure of the vehicle  one should do everything possible to get OEM glass at all cost.  There is a very big difference in glass quality and the integrity has to be maintained for air bags, etc to work as effectively as possible.  I honestly do not think that this is smoke and mirrors promoted by the manufacturers but it really makes sense.  IMO.  Ron G.

My coach goes in tomorrow morning, service manager says it will take 1 hour to upload the changes.  I am sure we will see zero change in performance or MPG.  I will let all know of the outcome.
