Added a digital voltage gauge to see actual battery level instead of just looking at indicator lights or going out with my multi meter to check.

Im finishing up the install of a Progressive Industries EMS-HW50C. When I removed the 50 Amp receptacle on the outside I found it had leaked water and the plywood behind it was water soaked and soft.

I used Minwax Wood Hardener to repair it. I then drilled and doweled the screw holes using Gorilla clear glue and a bit of JB Weld to cover the exposed ends of the dowels.

When I purchased the camper Dixie RV had replaced the receptacle and did not seal around it. They only used the rubber gasket behind it, naturally that did not work to seal out the water.

I sealed around the entire thing with Lexel.

I have yet to run the cable for the display up to the location we want it just inside the door but that won't be difficult or time consuming.

Removed the divider panel under my sink separating that area from under the stove burner set and also removed it's face panel. A large area between the 2 burners on top and the gas furnace near the floor, way larger than a 12" square. It does have a soft copper gas line coming up near the middle. Probably put a door on it. Massively wasted space!

Replaced the cheap plastic vacuum breaker valve that was starting to leak with a brass Watts LF288A and a couple close pipe nipples. It was a bit tight working in the cabinet under the bathroom sink but not too bad.

We have moved down to South Florida for the week. My buddy owns a mobile RV tech business (TravelTech RV). He came by yesterday because he had a call in the same campground as me.

We worked on the air conditioner. He called Dometic with info and they suggested a new circuit board and said they would send one out. He had one on his truck inventory and we swapped it out. Didn’t do any good.

We ended up installing a new thermoresister. We couldn’t get into the wall where the existing one was. We fished this one across the ceiling as far as possible and got it away from the A/C vents.

The A/C has been working a treat.

He also contacted Norcold about my fridge not staying cold enough when it has food in it. They sent him a long document to fill out with measurements, voltmeter readings, temp readings of the tubes on the back, and whatnot. We’ll see what they say. He thinks they might recommend replacing the coils on the back. He says he’s not enthusiastic about it as it’ll be heavy and hours of work. We’ll see what happens and how fast it gets here. We are only supposed to be here for a week.

So in 2 days, he had more progress than a week at the dealer... shocker.

Here it is on the ceiling. It's the same cover from when it was on the wall. About light switch height, maybe 3 1/2' up. In fact, it was about 4" from the light switch. We snipped the end and pushed it down into the wall.

My early-2019 Rockwood Signature 5er doesn't have a bedroom AC but there is a sticker on the wall beside the light switch that says you're supposed to mount the AC temp sensor (thermister) there. I have no idea what's in the wall behind the sticker. I've seen something like a small black dome in similar trailers that have the 2nd AC installed at the factory.

I wonder if the thermoresister is already there. Otherwise, I wasn’t sure how we were going to make the transition from ceiling into the wall.

If you have a thermostat, what does the thermoresistor do?

The thermoresistor is what measures the temperature. It then sends that temperature to the thermostat (in the hallway by way of the A/C unit on the roof).

Got it. When I read your first post, I was going to suggest the thermostat, so I guess I would not have been too far wrong.
