Expert Answers about Atwood

  • 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.

  • Difference Between Duct vs Non-Duct RV Air Conditioner Units
  • 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. Since your RV doesn't have an AC unit you would need a non-ducted kit like the part # AT15026-21. This comes with everything needed to install.

  • 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...

  • Replacement Atwood Rooftop RV Air Conditioner With Heat Pump
  • I have the perfect rooftop RV air conditioner with heat pump for you. For this, I recommend using the Atwood Air Command Rooftop RV Air Conditioner w/ Heat Pump part # AT15028-22 for white and part # AT15033-22 for black. This Atwood unit can cool or heat up to 360 cubic feet per minute. It has a very low amperage draw of 13.9 amps which will allow you to run several other circuits simultaneously in addition to a 15,000 BTU rating. In comparison to most A/C and heating units that shoot...

  • Is Anything Else Needed to Install Atwood Air Command Air Conditioner in Trailer Pre-Wired for AC
  • The Atwood Air Command air conditioner # AT15033-22 comes with the AC unit itself, thermostat, remote, and a white ceiling vent. Since your trailer is already wired to accept an AC unit you will not need any other major components just odds and ends for installation (tools etc).

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Minimum Generator Wattage Required for Dometic Air Conditioner part # AT15025-21
  • The Dometic Air Conditioner part # AT15025-21 that you referenced is designed to be powered by a 2,000 watt generator and not a 4,000 watt one. If you have a 2,000 watt generator plus solar panel you'd be good to use this AC unit it fully.

  • 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...

  • Is there a Way to Identify 5th Wheel Trailer Landing Gear with No Markings
  • It is possible that there is a part number somewhere that would help identify the landing gear on your trailer. Sometimes there is information on the underside of the caps on the tops of the jacks so that is another place you can check if you haven't already. Many landing gear parts are interchangeable among the different manufacturers but this is not always the case so identifying the manufacture and/or model number is important. Another option is to replace the landing gear with...

  • 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 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 is also...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Cover for Dometic Duo-Therm A/C Unit

All of these covers are intended for use during storage periods, not when you're on the road. We do not offer the replacement plastic shroud.

  • 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.

  • Location of Electric Heating Element in Atwood 10-Gallon RV Water Heater 91160
  • RV water heater replacement heating elements such as Atwood part # AT92249 and the similar items shown on the linked page usually install near the bottom of the water tank so that they are fully immersed. On the Atwood water heater 91160 the electric heating element will be behind the gas line assembly. You can refer to the linked photo. This part needs to be loosened and shifted out of the way in order to unscrew the old heating element. My Atwood contact confirmed that you will want...
