Expert Answers about Camco

  • 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 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...

  • 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...

  • How to Connect Two 20 Lb Propane Tanks Together
  • In order to connect two 20 lb propane tanks to one another you are going to need a regulator with an auto changeover feature like the Camco Automatic Changeover 2-Stage Propane Regulator part # CAM59005. This regulator will pull from one tank until that tank is empty then it will automatically draw from the second tank. You can then use the Camco Propane Cylinder Gas Gauge and Leak Detector part # CAM59023 to tell how much gas is left in the tank and the Camco Propane Supply Hose part...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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 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...

  • Does Camco RV Power Defender Circuit Analyzer Dogbone CAM55313 Correct Miswired Outlets
  • The Camco RV Power Defender Circuit Analyzer Dogbone # CAM55313 will tell you if the power outlet at an RV park is wired properly to prevent damage to the connected RV's electrics, but it does not correct for any mis-wired outlets. It is a warning device only. My contact at Camco confirmed that when three of the four LED indicator lights are lit yellow on the main body of the unit the outlet is wired correctly. They also offer a similar unit, their Power Defender Voltage Analyzer...

  • Troubleshooting a Propane Automatic Changeover that Isnt Changing Over
  • It is possible that the regulator has gone bad in 4 months, but it is highly unlikely. As you have such small tanks, the issue may be that the outlet pressure isn't strong enough to recognize. The Camco Automatic Changeover 2-Stage Propane Regulator for Dual Propane Tanks # CAM59005 is designed for an outlet pressure of 11 inch WC. It may be that the regulator is still sensing the propane in the tank and yet isn't allowing it through because of the pressure lacking yet won't change over...

  • 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 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...

  • 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....

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Hose Assembly For 500-Gallon Propane Tank To Fill 20-Lb Portable Tanks
  • I called my contact at Camco and asked about a hose with the correct fittings that will work for you. If the fitting on your 500-gallon tank is the same size as the fitting found on your 20-lb portable tanks, then the hose I recommend for you is part # CAM59043. This is a 12-ft long hose with a 1-inch female adapter on one end and a 1-inch male adapter on the other. For a similar hose assembly but 5-ft long the hose you want is part # CAM59045.

  • Can a Dual Propane Tank Regular be Used with Just One Tank
  • Camco Automatic Changeover 2-Stage Propane Regulator for Dual Propane Tanks # CAM59005 has a valve on top that will automatically switch to a full tank so you could use it with one tank and it would just always be open to that tank. But if you will always be using one tank we have 2-stage regulators # CAM59313, # CAM59323, or # CAM59333 for a single propane source and they would be more ideal than the dual tank option.

  • 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.

  • Should Sealant be Used on Propane Gas Line Fittings
  • Yes you should use some kind of sealant on threaded fittings whether it is the tape or pipe dope. We recently had a propane manufacturer visit us for training so I can say for sure that yes you should use a sealant on threaded fittings. No sealant though on the flare fittings just like you said.

  • Replacement Horizontal Marshall 260 Propane Regulator
  • Yes, the part # CAM59333 will work as a replacement for your Marshall 260 LP regulator. Keep in mind that it does have the P.O.L. connector included. If you do not need the P.O.L. connector then you will want to go with the Camco Horizontal 2-Stage Propane Regulator # CAM59323.
