Expert Answers about Atwood

  • Replacement Heating Element for Atwood Water Heater Model GC6AA-10E
  • The Replacement Electric Heating Element for Atwood Water Heaters # AT92249 that you referenced is the correct replacement for your GC6AA-10E Atwood water heater. I was able to confirm this replacement part number with Atwood. The heating element will work well in your 6-gallon, goes-and-electric-combination water heater.

  • Keeping Fresh Water Tank and Lines from Freezing in a Lived-In 5th Wheel Trailer
  • If you live in the trailer all year then presumably you will be running heaters when it is cold. Provided the hot water heater and plumbing is internal to the trailer then the ambient temperature would prevent it from freezing. But I assume that the water heater is fed from the fresh water tank which is more external to the trailer. To keep it from freezing you could use a tank heater such as # 277-000164. Or we have heating element # W01-1573 designed for freeze protection on holding...

  • Where is the Location of the Water Heater Element an Atwood Model GC6AA-10E
  • On your model Atwood Water Heater GC6AA-10E, the electric heating element, like # AT92249, is located in the water tank in the back side of the water heater. The heater will have to be pull out of the RV to replace the unit. Atwood recommends having an RV repair shop do the repair because of the intensive labor involved in replacing the element.

  • Replacing Venture Motor on Atwood Gear Box on Powered Landing Gear
  • If your motor runs but the landing gear does not move (except when manually cranked) this suggests that the gearbox in the landing gear is still functioning properly but that there is some issue preventing the motor torque from reaching the gearbox. First I suggest you unbolt the motor from the landing gear. Check the motor drive shaft; it is possible that it has been sheared off. If the motor were to remain on after the landing gear legs are fully retracted or fully extended all the...

  • Comparing of the Atwood and Bulldog Electric Trailer Jacks
  • The Atwood Power Trailer Jack with Cover and Foot, item # AT81068, has a lift speed of 15 inches per minute. It also has a lift range of 14 inches. This jack has been around for a very long time and is very dependable. The wiring on this jack is slightly larger than the wiring on the Bulldog model. It is rated for 3,000 pounds. The Bulldog Powered-Drive Trailer Jack - Drop Leg - A-Frame - 14 inch Lift - 4,000 lbs, # BD500199, has a lift range of 14 inches, the only other added feature...

  • Availability of Replacement Parts for RBW Landing Gear on 1989 Fleetwood Prowler 5th Wheel
  • I contacted Fleetwood RV, the maker of your 1989 Prowler 5th Wheel. Due to the age of the trailer they no longer have much information on it, but they advised that the original landing gear was electric (powered) and made by RBW. They could not tell me the weight of your 1989 5th wheel trailer nor the particular model nor weight rating of your landing gear. AL-KO no longer manufactures replacement parts for RBW landing gear, but there are companies offering some parts. In order to identify...

  • Recommended Replacement Motor For Landing Gear With Atwood 75721
  • It sounds like the clutch in the motor may be failing on your Atwood landing gear. It may be slipping which is causing the clicking sound. Since you said helping the motor with the manual crank helps the gear box will not be the problem. The replacement motor you need is part # LG-142178. This will attach directly to the gear box you have and would be a great fit. I called my contact at Atwood and they told me the legs of the landing gear are what the weight capacity is based off...

  • Difference Between Ducted and Non-Ducted AC Units for RV
  • Non-ducted AC units just blow the air out of the bottom part of the unit. While the ducted style are what you would use in a motorhome with multiple ducts in the ceiling. The duct style is designed to match up with the ducts of an RV that distribute air throughout.

  • How To Replace Beveled Gears on Atwood Landing Gear
  • I have included an exploded view of Atwood landing gear that will help. You will need to remove parts 1 through 4, 6, 20, 22, 30, and 31 and any other parts not mentioned that block the gears. Once you have access to the gears you may have to drive out a roll pin holding in the gear(s). Use a narrow tool such as a center punch and a hammer to drive it out. Then the gears should come off easy. Reverse the process to install the new ones.

  • Is the # 84132 Atwood Hydraulic Brake Actuating Coupler a Replacement for the Atwood # 82543
  • The Atwood Hydraulic Drum Brake Actuator you referenced, part # 84132 would indeed be an acceptable replacement for your existing # 82543. Both are rated for 6000 lbs towing/ 900 lbs tongue weight, both accept a 2 inch trailer ball and fit a 3 inch trailer tongue, they are both bolt-on applications and each features a manually operated reverse lock out. The only difference between the two actuating couplers is that the 84132 features a zinc-plated finish, while the 82543 has a black...

  • Gears Jumping when Motor is Activated on the Atwood RV Landing Gear, # 75333
  • It sounds as if you will need to replace gear box on your Atwood Fifth-Wheel Landing Gear, # 75333. The gear box, # 75054SP, is a complete unit and internal parts are not available. You may also need to replace the gears in the top of the jacks . You will need to take the top of the jacks off and count the gears in the assemblies to determine which gears you will need. If your gears are the older style they will both have 15 teeth. The part number for the older 15 tooth gears is 75030. If...

  • Troubleshooting Atwood Gas RV Water Heater That Won't Ignite
  • There could be several causes for the non-functioning gas water heater in your RV. The thermocouple could be bad; we offer several lengths of replacement, such as 12-inch # CAM09253, 18-inch # CAM09273 and 36-inch # CAM09333. All are universal-fit items from Camco. If your RV has a master switch like # AT91959 then this could be the cause of the issue. A bad thermostat might also be the culprit. We offer replacement # CAM08143. You may also have only a loose connection, which would...

  • Can Atwood RV Water Heater - Gas and Electric Run Just Off of Electricity
  • The electric part of water heater # AT96117 can run all the time with or without the propane pilot active. The electric part is meant to keep the water hot while you are traveling (because presumably the trailer or RV battery will be providing an electrical charge while the vehicle is running). Then once you reach your destination and can't run electric without the vehicle running or when connected to shore power you can turn off the electric part and use the propane only.

  • AMPLock Coupler Lock Recommendation for 2018 Pacific Coachworks Powerlite 24FS TT
  • I was able to pull up a pretty decent picture of the coupler on the 2018 Pacific Coachworks Powerlite 24FS that you have coming and it looks to be a coupler like what's in the install video for the AMPLock Trailer coupler lock part # AT89005 that I attached. This would be the AMPLock coupler lock I'd recommend.

  • Will Atwood Landing Gear Replacement Gear Box Fit a Venture Landing Gear Set on a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • It is possible that the gear box for Atwood landing gear, # 75054SP, will fit your Venture landing gear. However the only way to know for sure is to try it out because they have not been tested together. It is likely they will work together but I cannot promise that they will. A more likely fit is the Stromberg-Carlson gear box, # LG-179015, because both landing gear sets are actually made by Lippert. This one will fit Atwood landing gear so it is likely that either one will work. It...

  • Routine and Preventative Maintenance Recommendations for Atwood Powered Trailer Jacks
  • There are some maintenance and care steps for all Atwood Powered Jacks including # 80515 and # AT80718 that you have referenced. According to Atwood, before each use, inspect the jack tubes and replace if bent or damaged. If wiring is connected to battery terminal, inspect at least twice each year for corrosion. Clean with a solution of baking soda and water, then apply a thin coat of grease. NOTE: The motor ground screw and mounting bolts must be cleaned too if a ground continuity...

  • Recommended Padlocks For B&W Companion Fifth Wheel Hitch
  • The 5/16-inch diameter lock you mentioned is to use to lock the handle on the head so it cannot be opened. B&W states it needs to be a 5/16 inch diameter lock that is three inches long and has an inside width of 2-1/4 inches. The lock we offer for this is part # ML101. I went to the warehouse and measured the spring pin that is used to lock the handles that hold the base in the pucks. The pin measures 1/4-inch diameter and the usable part of the pin is 1-1/2 inches long. The locks I...

  • Comparing Atwood, etrailer, and Demco Trailer Brakes for Boat Trailer
  • Essentially yes, all of them will work for your trailer assuming you have 3,500 pound axles and a 4 bolt mounting flange. However, there are some differences between the brake assemblies you mentioned. The Atwood # AT85735 a free-backing brakes, meaning they will not engage when reversing with your trailer. If your trailer has a reverse lockout on it then this feature is not necessary. They're coated with an e-coat used for corrosion resistance. The Demco brakes # 40716-15 are...

  • Replacement Motorized Landing Gear Parts for 1987 Fleetwood Terry 27-1/2-foot 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Based on my research on the 1987 Terry M27-5G 5th wheel, the Acme OEM landing gear supplied was produced by RBW. I contacted the trailer manufacturer, Fleetwood, but even though you provided your trailer VIN number (thank you) they are unable to provide any specifics about the RBW landing gear on your trailer. Their records go back only to 1990. According to my research your M27-5G trailer weighs 5725-lbs. If you wish to replace the landing gear you can use the link provided to review...

  • Replacement Atwood Propane Gas Detector is Slightly Smaller than Original Atwood Detector
  • Atwood RV Propane Gas Detector # AT36720 includes an adapter plate for flush mount applications. But your existing hole is larger than what the new one requires, which is 3-1/4 inches wide by 3-7/8 inches tall. So that is 1/4 inch by 3/8 inches smaller than your existing hole. That is pretty close and you could likely easily get a little piece of trim or weatherstripping, something that can take up that gap and still look good. This detector is the best fit out of the options we carry.

  • What is the Lift Capacity of Atwood Powered Trailer Tongue Jack # AT81068
  • Yes, the Atwood Deluxe Power Trailer Jack W/ Cover and Foot, item # AT81068, should work fine on your trailer. You will need to weigh the tongue weight of your trailer to be sure, but you should not have more than 875 pounds of tongue weight. The # AT81068 powered jack is able to lift and support up to 3,000 pounds. If you are using a weight distribution system, you may want to consider the heavier rated jack, item # HT82022. With the higher 5,000 pound rating you will have the capacity...

  • Fuse Needed for Atwood Deluxe Power Trailer Jack # AT81068

If the fuse continues to blow, make sure the power wire feeding the jack is in good condition, with no nicks or worn spots in the insulation. Also, make sure that the capacity of the jack isn't being exceeded.
