Expert Answers about Camco

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • How Does the Camco Travel Toilet Drain?
  • Good news! Not only can I tell you how to empty the Camco Travel Toilet # CAM41545, I can show you too. If you look at the images I've attached for reference. It shows that once you remove the seated piece of the travel toilet from the waste holding tank base, you will want to take the tank by the handle to the nearest bathroom facility. Once you've arrived at the facility you will want to remove the cap from the toilets elbow and dispose of the waste into the toilet. I have...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Trailer Cover Recommendation for Starcraft Satellite 17RB
  • The overall length of your Starcraft Satellite17RB that you references is 20 feet 1 inch. The Camco UltraShield Cover part # CAM45710 would be a great solution for you. It is designed for trailers between 20 and 22 feet in length and would also fit the AC unit and Wifi antenna you have as well. This is also the most protective cover we have for your trailer size as well so it will do an excellent job.

  • Will Camco Vertical 2-Stage Propane Regulator Replace Marshall 260 Regulator
  • I spoke with my contact at Camco and she said you will want Camco Vertical 2-Stage Propane Regulator # CAM59313. This propane regulator maintains a constant 11" w.c. gas pressure for your camper. The 2 Stages ensure a smooth, consistent flow. The inlet connector is 1/4" NPT and outlet connector is 3/8" NPT. It will mount to your camper vertically.

  • Can Camco Pop-A-Plate Disposable Plate Dispenser # CAM57001 Use All Types of Disposable Plates
  • The Camco Pop-A-Plate Disposable Plate Dispenser # CAM57001 will work fine with standard uncoated paper plates (the type that often need to be doubled-up for sturdiness) and it also works with disposable plastic plates. A heavier quality coated (or uncoated) paper plate will also work just fine in this under-cabinet dispenser. The only real difference in using this dispenser with the three types of plates is the amount of force required to pull one out. The thin "basic" paper plates will...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Recommended Components for Proper RV Waste Water or Black and Grey Water Disposal
  • Good news! I can help. The Camco RhinoEXTREME RV sewer hoses # CAM39867 will work great to dispose the waste from your RV to the camp sites main dump station or to a portable waste tank like the Tote-N-Stor # TNS25609. I wouldn't recommend staying connected to the dump or waste tank all the time though, this can cause "the business" to not drain properly because it will never have the right amount of water force to flush the solid contents of the holding tanks and it leaves the opportunity...

  • Installation of Mounting Rail for Camco RV Grill
  • You will want to make sure that you have proper support behind the fiberglass location you plan on mounting this rail too. I was able to go out to the warehouse and find that on the product Camco recommends this product be installed by a qualified RV dealer. I have attached an image of the tag for you to better see the details. It states: This mounting strip WILL NOT support the weight of the grill or other devices if only screwed into the skin of the RV. It may be attached to the...

  • Installing Camco Automatic Changeover 2-Stage Propane Regulator on 2013 Rockwood RV
  • It is actually quite easy to install the Camco Automatic Changeover 2-Stage Propane Regulator for Dual Propane Tanks, part # CAM59005. You will simply unscrew the old regulator from the sidewall. Then, using a wrench, remove the supply hose. You then disconnect the 2 pigtails connected to the propane tanks from the old regulator then reconnect the pigtails to the new regulator. Next hook up the supply hose, and remount the new regulator to the sidewall and you are good to go. I have...

  • 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...

  • Switching from Single to Dual Propane Tanks on a Coachmen Travel Trailer
  • You will need a dual propane tank regulator. The one that we have, # CAM59005, happens to have the automatic change over feature (we haven't got a manual one). This is preferred so that you are not left with having to go out and switch tanks at the worst possible moment! I have linked a video of this regulator for you. You will also need a dual propane tank mount. there may be a model specifically for your trailer so you may want to check with Coachmen.

  • 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...

  • Can Camco RV Portable Propane Campfire Attach Directly to RV Propane Source
  • The Camco RV Portable Propane Campfire # CAM58041 has a built-in regulator so it can connect directly to your RV's high-pressure propane feed. My contact at CAMCO confirmed this is the preferred installation method. It comes with an 8 foot hose for you to use to connect to your RV. The part # CAM59143 does come with fittings that would allow it to be compatible with the fire pit as well.

  • Will Camco RV and Marine Septic Safe Toilet Tissue Clog a Septic System or Break Easily
  • I went out to the warehouse to inspect the Camco RV and Marine Septic Safe Toilet Tissue, # CAM40276, and the 2-ply version # CAM40274. I also spoke to a co-worker who has used these items and got her opinions. The single ply is soft but thin like any single ply toilet tissue. When bunched up it is fairly strong and I would not anticipate breakage problems. My co-worker confirmed this saying they have never had a problem with it breaking. Since the material is thin and designed to dissolve...

  • Does Camco RV Adjustable Screen Door Grille Install On Inside or Outside and What are the Dimensions
  • The Camco RV screen door grille # CAM43980 can technically be installed on the inside or outside. But having it on the inside would be better because most RV/Trailer doors open to the outside and it is less likely for someone to come along and remove the grille. The actual grille part measures 24-1/4 inches by 20-1/4 inches.

  • 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.
