Today was cleaning and discovery.

Found the problem with some of the window latches. The plastic trunnion cracked in half.

Fixed the electrical polarity. I wondered what the light on access hatch was for.

Found the univolt mounted next to hotwater heater in service area. Missing small fuse, but appears in good shape.

I have the table by sofa working. It was frozen in place. I'll need to clean and lube the hinge. leaf is in good shape. Later will replace with hardwood.

Need to repair kitchen sink lines. Hotwater line broken. Cold disconnected.

Is the suburban furnace original to trailer?

The heater in mine mounts on the wood panel wall right inside the entry door. There was a gas line in the floor in mine. I removed all that as I will never use it.
The wall holes in the front are probably the antenna controller, that rotated the antenna that mounted on the front outside.I have that, but the antenna is gone.The plug looks like it went in the counter above the refrigerator, I have a hole there with a similar plug in it.Maybe for venting?
Interesting that your table is wood grained, mine matches the counter tops. Does yours mount right inside near the door? Mine does, but I sure wish it was across the room. Oh well.

Thanks. I found the gas line for the heater.

I assume TV antennae controller. That is mounted on opposite side. Need new bushings on exterrior and antenna, but control and mast are there.

Table is just inside the door. Makes for interesting egress if table is out. Counter tops were replaced due to rot I guess counter and table matched at one point.

Yes that table is interesting. Mine cleaned up great so I will be using it anyway. Sure is pain.
I bought two of the folding wood chairs to go with it. Try getting out the door with them there!
By the way on the opposite side from the antenna controller is my thermostat.

The thermostat in mine is gold, and looks to be original. I won't be using the furnance probably , as we use an electric heater when we need to. Been using it to work out in the trailer lately. I am struck for awhile as the snow is too high around the trailer to do much.

Found the RV store down the road is now a camping world. spent $250 just on lil stuff. Drain lines, power connecters, chock blocks, leveling jacks. One could get in trouble easily in there.


I think i'll go with painted steel LP tanks for now. Aluminum is shiny and has a greater tendency to walk off around here. Ill be leaving the as unattended in a park for 2 weeks occasionally.

Spent past few days cleaning. More cleaning and fuse holder replacement on univolt tomorrow.

Cleaned out an old rats nest between water heater and univolt model 30. Discovered why univolt was missing fuse and ground wire from circuit panel to univolt was cut. Buss fuse holder contact unsoldered and Rectifier seems bad. blows shore power fuse when energized. Anyone have a univolt wiring schematic? I found a model 35 schematic. Hopefully I can repair with spare parts on hand. If not I'll order a new inverter.


Just above the univolt is a switch box. In mine the wires are tied together. Am I missing a cut off switch?

Can anyone tell me the typical 120 breaker layout?

I'd like to put stove back on. How is the base typically mounted at wall?

Teufel IMO go ahead and order a new converter(not inverter). Those old univolts cook batteries in no time. They are not worth repairing.

Plan to replace in long run, but AS $ is limited over next 2 months. If I can get other systems online without replacement. I'll replace univolt now.

Teufel check out this converter from Best converters. talk to Randy he is a forum member here.
PD 9245C 45 Amp RV Converter/Charger

Considering that most everything runs on 12VDC you need a converter first.

Emailed Randy. He confirmed the PD 9245c should work fine. Possible better choice would be DLS-45. It has a higher voltage output during boost and will charge and condition better. I'll spend tonight researching the two. The current plan is to mount converter back in the same spot. I may mount next to main breaker in street side rear bathroom cabinet.

Ordered some parts form inland rv today. refrigerator vent cover, weather stripping, window operator, cabinet latches, and barrel nuts for window latches.

I'm short 11 barrel nuts. They had 7 in stock. Anyone know where to obtain more from? I have some hpde and stainless stock. I could make some if need be, but time is short.

Maybe, I'm missing something here. An acorn nut is a end cap shaped like a acorn. What I'm referring to is called a dowel nut or barrel nut.

It's used to move the window latch back and forth. Picture can be found in one of my earlier posts.

It must be me that is missing something. I can't find the picture you are refering to. I tried searching Fastenal for Barrel or dowel nuts and did not get a match. If you could post the pic ture I will try to find it at Fastenal.

I've checked fastenal and mcmastercarr. No luck yet.

There's a small cross/dowel/barrel nut that's broken in the pic. That's the piece I'm looking for. it's approximately 1.5"x5/16" The thread is close to 1/4-20tpi. I'm guessing as I don't have a whole one.

Let there be light. Converter arrived this afternoon. Its not permanently installed. I'm installing a switched outlet in the wall box tomorrow. The dls45 came with a 120 cord. I have to replace bulbs in a few spots and check the bath light fixture. Any tips on rehabilitating the aluminum fixtures? Swivel sockets are stiff.

Any clue what this switch goes to? Its mounted above the stove. Owners manual referred to it as utility center.
