Expert Answers about Camco

  • Recommended Sewer Hose Storage For Hose That Wont Fit In Trailer Bumper
  • We have had someone tell us the swivel fittings that particular hose won't fit in the 4 inch bumper of your trailer, and the manufacturer said they could grind down two of the lugs and the hose would then fit. We do have a video which I've attached of the RhinoFLEX RV Sewer Hose w Swivel Fittings, 4-in-1 Adapter, and Storage Caps - 15' Long # CAM39761 fitting in a bumper. Since your Rhino Extreme won't fit in your trailer bumper, I have a solution that won't require grinding down your...

  • Replacement Heating Element for a Suburban SW6DE Water Heater
  • I was looking through the manual for the Suburban SW6DE water heaters and found that the Suburban replacement is similar but shorter than the Camco model # CAM02143. It looks like the original one used in that water heater was discontinued and replaced with 520900. So I do believe that Camco Water Heater Element - Screw-In - 1500 Watts - 120 Volts Item # CAM02143 will work. Another option is Camco RV Replacement Water Heater Element - Universal - 1,500W/120V Item # CAM04363. Both of...

  • Recommended Dual Propane Tank Regulator With Automatic Changeover
  • To add a propane tank to your RV, I recommend the Camco Automatic Changeover 2-Stage Propane Regulator for Dual Propane Tanks, # CAM59005. This will allow you to use the extra tank first and then draw from you RV's tank. This will switch automatically so you don't end up with a 1/2 cold shower because your extra tank ran out. It does have a guage that will let you know when the tanks are running low so you can swap them out manually. If you want to ensure you don't drain one tank, simply...

  • Availability of Skylight Shade for 14 x 22 Inch Skylight
  • Something like the Camco SunShield Reflective Window Cover, part # CAM45167 might work for you. The cover measures 16-1/4 x 25 and attaches with hook and loop fasteners. Unfortunately, we don't offer a retractable shade larger than the Camco # CAM42913 you referenced.

  • Can Camco RV Replacement Water Heater Element # CAM02143 be Used in a Suburban Water Heater
  • The Camco RV Replacement Water Heater Element # CAM02143, according to Camco, is a fit for a range of water heater brands. The gasket is included. The unit screws in with a 1-1/4-inch diameter threaded portion and its overall length end to end is 6-1/4-inches. When removing the original element and installing the new unit, be sure to follow the safety precautions outlined on the packaging and/or as noted by the manufacturer of your water heater or RV. According to Camco this replacement...

  • Recommended 50 AMP RV Adapters for 3&4 Prong 30 AMP Plugs on Honda EU 6500 IS Generator to Power RV
  • Using the Honda generator to power your RV is a great idea. You can use either outlet to power your RV. For any appliances that use less than 125V of power, I would recommend you use the 3 prong 30 amp outlet with a 50 amp adapter like the Camco # CAM55412. This will allow the generator to run economically when using appliances rated for less than 125V; most commonly RV appliances are rated for 120V. If you have any appliances that run on higher voltage than 125V you will want to...

  • Can 50 Amp Surge Protector Be Used On 30 Amp Service In RV
  • You can use a 50 amp surge protector on your 30 amp service but I would offer a bit of caution. If any of your appliances or items are rated at 30 amps and something happened that caused them to draw more power, the 50 amp surge protector would not trigger and you could suffer damage to those items. If you decide to use the 50 amp surge protector I recommend making sure everything is in good working order, but as I stated, if there were a problem it may cause damage because the circuit...

  • Replacement Parts for Suburban Model SW6 DE Water Heater
  • For your Suburban SW6DE, you will want the Camco Water Heater Element # CAM02143 and the anode rod # CAM11563. This water heater will use a combination of electric and gas to heat your water. The electric ignition and element will determine the heating time and correct temperature of your water, but the gas will heat the water.

  • Connecting to Generator from 50 Amp Service on RV
  • For the 3 prong 30 amp outlet on your generator, I recommend using the Power Grip Generator 30 Amp to 50 Amp RV Power Cord Adapter # CAM55412. The 3-Prong twist-lock design will connect with the outlet on the generator and the female end will connect with your RV's 50-amp power plug. This adapter is rated for up to 125 volts. For higher voltage items, you can use the Mighty Cord Generator Adaptor # A10-G30450VP. This is rated for up to 240 volts of power and will connect to the 4 prong...

  • Recommended Regulator for 100 lb Propane Tank and Vent-less Heater Appliance for Emergencies
  • For your propane tank with fill valve, you most likely need the Camco Horizontal 2-Stage Propane Regulator w/ P.O.L - 160,000 Btu/Hr # CAM59333. This will have the 1/4 inch NPt inlet and the 3/8 NPT outlet and will maintain a constant 11 inch water column propane pressure for your vent-less heater.

  • Recommended Anode Rod For RV Water Heater Based On Material
  • Both metals help to protect your tank. There are only a few people that have a preference and it is normally based on aluminium being lower on the Galvanic Scale than magnesium so it produces less driving current between the anode and cathode (tank). They believe that this means aluminum doesn't do as good a job protecting the tank sides as well as magneisum. You will find that plumbers will use either one on home or RV systems. My recommendation is to go with the mangesium anode...

  • Hose Carrier that Allows Fittings to Stay on End of RhinoFlex RV Sewer Hose
  • The Valterra EZ Hose Carrier A04-0153XBK has an inner diameter just large enough to fit a standard sewer hose with little wiggle room left over, 4-3/8 inches inner diameter. So the hose part of RhinoFLEX RV Sewer Hose # CAM39761 would fit but the fittings at the ends would ultimately be too large to fit inside the tube. I recommend Phoenix Super Slider hose carrier # PF247703 which has a slightly larger internal diameter of 4-5/8 inches. It may not seem like much but that extra space...

  • Replacement Hot Water Heater Anode Rod for a Suburban Brand Water Heater
  • Camco hot water heater anode # CAM11593 is designed for 10 gallon Atwood heaters. Since you have a Suburban you should be able to use # CAM11563 which is for Suburban (Mor-Flo) heaters.

  • Size of Propane Hose to Go From Tank to Regulator on RV
  • Most regulators like the part # CAM59005 have an inlet of 1/4 inch SAE and an outlet of 3/8 NPT. It would be out of the ordinary if your tank to regulator wasn't 1/4 inch SAE inverted flare. Part # CAM59053 has this style of fittings on both sides. Part # 100040-144-MBS has 3/8 inch on the other hand. Heres how you tell difference between 3/8 NPT and 1/4 NPT. The difference is the outside diameter. 1/4 inch is .540 outside diameter on the threads and 3/8 inch is .675 inch.

  • What is the Difference Between Camco Telescoping Flagpoles With American Flag
  • The difference between the two is that Telescoping Flagpole with American Flag # CAM51605 comes with a residential mount so you can display your patriotism to the United States of America both on the road and at your home. Flagpole # CAM51600 does not come with the mount but is otherwise the same product, which comes with a 3' x 5' American flag, an extendable 20' flagpole, a car-foot base, and the ability to fly two flags. I've added a link to a video review of this product for you...

  • Recommended Butyl Tape for MaxxAir MaxxFan Install
  • There is not a specific size of tape you will need to install a MaxxAir MaxxFan. I recommend using the RV Vent Installation Kit part # CAM25013 which comes with 8' long x 3/4" wide of white butyl tape that should be more than enough for your needs.

  • How is the Thickness of the Camco Cam Locks Measured
  • The thickness of the Camco Cam Locks is measured from the back of the face of the lock to the latch (see photo). Based on the photo you submitted, I believe you would want the Camco Cam Lock -1-1/8 Thick, # CAM44363. This lock measures 1-1/8 inches from the back of the lock face to the latch.

  • Regulator and Hose to Connect Propane Tank to Deep Fryer
  • Check the deep fryer literature or the fryer itself to find the propane pressure required by the fryer. If it is 11" w.c. you could use # CAM59013. Regarding a hose it is going to depend on the type of fitting that is on the fryer. Hose # CAM59843 is commonly used with 20 or 30 pound LP tanks.

  • What is the Difference Between a Power Analyzer and a Surge Protector 50 Amp Adapter
  • An analyzer such as # CAM55313 has diagnostic lights to indicate faults so that you can avoid damage to your RV. This model also offers surge protection. A model that offers only surge protection would not have any diagnostics. But some have both. There is also the Power Defender # CAM55306 that takes surge protection a step further by having the ability to detect too much AND too little power and disconnect and reconnected as needed.

  • Best Cover for 2017 Lance Travel Trailer 2285
  • From what I was able to find online, it seems your trailer measures 27 feet long and 122 inches high. Based on these dimensions, I'd recommend our Camco UltraGuard Class C/Travel Trailer Cover, Item # CAM45743. It fits travel trailers 26-28 feet long and is UV and water-resistant. Zippers provide easy access to doors and storage while the cover is in place. It also includes self-adjusting hold-down straps that hold the cover in place. The Camco UltraGuard's unique triple layer top...

  • Recommended Replacement Vent Cover for Fan-Tastic Vent on RV
  • The Camco vent cover is not intended to work with the Fan-Tastic vents, so I am sorry that you had someone install an inefficient and less than ideal product saying they were compatible. You should have had the Fan-Tastic Vent Ultra Breeze Trailer Roof Vent Cover - 23" x 19.5" x 10.25" - Smoke # FVU1500GR installed instead. It comes in the gray mentioned as well as black # FVU1500BL or white # FVU1500WH. This cover does not use a screen but instead utilizes the screen of your vent itself....

  • Splitting Propane from the Tank to a Grill and Stove on an RV
  • The Tee part that comes with # CAM59123 would need to install between the propane tank and the regulator. The end of the Tee that has the rubber washer (soft nose) is the end that connects to the propane supply. Depending on how your tanks are set up you may or may not need some type of adapter. We have a few and I have included a link to them for you.

  • Solar Powered Trailer Vent Products
  • My contact at Camco advised that they have replaced a fan motor or two in their Solar RV Refrigerator Vent System # CAM42165 but this was back before they added an on/off switch to the fan. Those fan motors were replaced under warranty. Camco does not have a specific figure for the motor's expected lifespan. Camco also offers another solar-powered RV Refrigerator Vent Cover, their kit # CAM42162. For a solar-powered plumbing vent Ultra-Fab offers part # UF53-945001 which bolts to RV...

  • Recommendation to Connect Two Propane Tanks for Constant Gas Pressure
  • It sounds like you are just needing the Camco Automatic Changeover 2-Stage Propane Regulator # CAM59005. This regulator will let you connect your two propane tanks to maintain a constant gas pressure. It will automatically switch to the full tank when the other is empty and you can remove the empty tank without interrupting the propane supply. It does also feature a built-in red/green gauge that will let you know when a cylinder is getting low or is empty. I have attached a short video...

  • Can the RhinoFLEX Sewer Hose Fit in a Hollow 4 Inch Square Steel Bumper on a Trailer
  • To fit the hose in the bumper you will have to take the orange collars off the ends of the RhinoFLEX hose. There should be side storage on your trailer that you can store these and other items in allow the hose by itself to fit as intended. This is the first time I have heard of this issue and I am surprised since 4 inch square is the typical size for a trailer bumper and the orange sleeves are larger diameter. The only option would be to remove the collars and the elbow and store them...

  • Converting 1/4 Inch Inverted Male Flare Fitting to 1/4 Inch Male NPT
  • Fitting # CAM59953 is designed to connect a 1/4 inch inverted flare to a 1/4 inch female NPT. The one end is a 1/4 inch male NPT and the other is a 1/4 inch female inverted flare fitting. It sounds like you need one that does the opposite but we do not have one. Hose # CAM59153 has the 1/4 inch inverter flare male end on one side and would screw into the larger female end of # CAM59953 but then you would still have a 1/4 inch non-inverted flare male end after that. If that is what you...

  • Troubleshooting Camco Automatic Changeover 2-Stage Propane Regulator
  • I spoke with my contact at CAMCO and he said it sounds like rushing the LP through the Automatic Changeover 2-Stage Propane Regulator # CAM59005 caused the check valve to automatically shut off. He recommended turning off all propane at the bottle and turning off all downstream appliances and wait about 15 minutes for the system to reset, then when you hear a click in the green nut the system will be reset and you can turn back on the propane at the bottle.

  • 4 Prong 30 amp Generator Adapter Recommendation for Connecting to RV
  • The Camco Generator Adapter part # CAM55382 that you referenced is designed to do exactly what you are looking to do. Connect a 30 amp generator output to an RV 30 amp connector. This adapter would work just fine with the Honda generator you have. As long as both your RV and your generator use the 4 prong style connectors this adapter would work well for you. This is a 120 volt adapter so in that regard it would work as well.

  • How to Determine Correct Replacement Roof Vent Cover
  • I do not have any information about what specific roof vent cover would have been used on your camper, but I can explain how you can figure it out. The first thing you'll want to do is get a measurement of the outside dimension of the vent that extends through the camper roof. Then, you'll want to closely examine whatever's left of the existing vent cover or the roof vent itself for a manufacturer name or part number. Also, examine the hinge used to connect the cover to the vent. Is...
