How to light pilot on Magic Chef?
I took the first trip in my camper this past weekend. I learned a lot and had a great time.
One thing is I could not get the stove pilot lights lit. I first hooked up the new OPD valve to the new 30# propane tank. Then I went to street side of trailer and turned valve up to 45 degrees. I went inside the trailer, took off the stove top and noticed 4 burners that all led from this middle burner. I turned the knob on one of the eyes to try and light one of them and I could not hear or smell any propane. I tried several times and nothing.
Either I had the valve turned wrong on the outside on the street side ( initially, it was pointing toward the front of the trailer parralel with the ground, flat), or I didn't give it long enough to get there. Any ideas?
Also, while I was hooked up to the 30 amp power at the campground, occassionally the lights would flicker on and get dim, only if all the lights were on and the roof fans going etc. If I cut off some of them, then we did not have that problem. I had a brand new electrical converter installed about a couple of months ago. Is that normal?
Also, last thing....while I was at the state campsite, i noticed that other trailers ran a 5/8th's hose from their sewer dump things in the back to the places where the dishwater is dumped. I assume one can leave the valve open for the gray water and leave the black water tank closed and then not have to worry about filling up holding tank? I have a sewere hose 3" for the dumpstation, but where do I get an adapter where I could run that hose from the gray water?
Thanks in advance for any comments or advice that may help me.
