Working again

Yesterday I removed the head and per the instructions pasted to the unit, I manually grounded it with 14 gauge wire and then ran the motor until it stopped (by flicking the switch down). I then, per those instructions, tried to "synchronize" the head and post by manually turning the post with the OEM handle but it still wouldn't turn. So I said "what the heck" and re-installed the head and alas, when I flicked the switch down, it worked!

I again removed the head to see if I now could turn the post gear manually using the OEM tool, and yes, I could (it moves very easily when it is not stuck).

SO we successfully unhooked. From here on out we will try to NEVER run the jack all the way up until it stops. (as some of you have said here in this thread)

My final question relates to the 30A fuse. I could only find standard ones at the NAPA store in Glenwood Springs -- and that is what is installed right now. Is it important to use only the slo-blow fuses? Thanks,

Tom

Great news Tom, thanks for the follow up. Yes, only a slow-blow 30A fuse.

Check out the NAPA etc. links at the beginning of this thread:

When I got mine at a NAPA store, the counter clerk did not see any in the fuse rack, so she looked up the part number, and then realized that the slow-blow variety of 30A fuse was in the rack, but was not labeled accurately on the edge of the 5-pack.

Good luck!

Peter

thomasjstone, try this link.

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f44/...se-151073.html

There was a lot of fuse discussion, both slow blow, availability and conversion to a blade type. Seems there was also a comment on why the SB is used.

as an aside I was reading the paperwork on the Fantastic fan and they spec'd a 4 amp slow blow.

I suspect the standard will be fine for now, but personally and order some from napa when you get home.

BTW congrats on getting it going.

Bob

Is there an echo in here? Good minds think alike . . .

My 2016 FC has an Atwood, not a Barker. They do not come standard with hand crank, but a electric drill adapter. Mine was missing the adapter. Airstream provided one on request and I ordered a hand crank on line.

Thanks for the pic of the crank. I believe I have an atwood model as well. I am returning to the dealer that I purchased from in Tucson next week and will ask them about the crank/drill adapter etc....
