Expert Answers about Camco

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 5th Wheel Cover Recommendation for RV that Measures 42 Feet with 2 AC Units
  • Since your trailer measures 40 feet in length the Camco UltraGuard part # CAM45759 would be what you need due to the two AC units.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 15 Amp Male Connector to 50 Amp Female Connector Recommendation
  • For an adapter that has just the 50 amp female connector plus a 15 amp make connector you would want the part # CAM55168. This would be what you would want to use while at your house without access to a 30 amp power source. The part # CAM55025 would be used only if you have access to both a 30 amp and 15 amp source.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Storage Cover for a 2016 Rockwood Roo 21SS
  • It looks like your 2016 Rockwood Roo 21SS has an exterior length of 22 feet, 10 inches, height of 10 feet, 10 inches, and a width of 96 inches so those specs will help determine the best size covers to use. The covers are meant to cover the body of the trailer so the height of the available covers will be less than the overall height of the trailer. For travel trailers that are 22 to 24 feet long we have a gray option, # CAM45741. For tire covers I would need to know either the tire...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Can I Use The Camco Power Defender 50 Amp Monitor When Only A 30 Amp Shore Recepticle Is Available?
  • Yes, you can run the Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Monitor - 50 Amp, # CAM55306 in line to a 30 amp shore recepticle. It will provide you with the protection from power surges and excessive voltage. It has a diagnostic center that's going to be able to visually alert you of any faults that you may have with the unit or with the electrical connections. It's also going to feature a reconnect delay and that's in place to protect sensitive equipment such as an air conditioner unit. You...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Storage Cover for Cold, Snowy Conditions for a 38 Foot 5th Wheel Trailer
  • I looked up the specs on your 2015 Palomino Sabre 33CKTS 5th wheel trailer. It stated the overall length of the trailer is 38 feet. I recommend the Adco RV Cover # 290-34857 which is an all-weather cover that is good for cold/snow as well as high winds. It also comes with tire covers.

  • Will 15 Amp Plug Be Energized When 30 Amp Plug Is Connected on # CAM55025?
  • The Power Grip RV Power Maximizer - 50 Amp Female to 15 Amp Male and 30 Amp Male # CAM55025 has independent wiring connected to the 50 amp Female end. When you plug in the 30 amp male, there will not be 30 amps of power going to the smaller 3 prong male connector as that would give you a live circuit exposed to the elements. The nice thing is that when there is a 15amp circuit available that is not GFI, then you can send 45 amps to your 50 amp system. If you just need the converter...

  • How to Measure a Travel Trailer to Choose a Storage Cover
  • For a travel trailer cover you will measure the length, width, and height of the body. Also if the trailer is in between sizes it is always better to go with the larger cover and have some slack than the smaller cover that might not fit. I have included a link to our selection of travel trailer covers.

  • 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 Storage Cover for Keystone Montana 3791RD 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Keystone lists the dimensions of their 3791RD 5th wheel trailer as 41-feet-1-inch long x 13-feet-5-inches tall. For a suitable storage cover I recommend the Camco cover you referenced, part # CAM45759, if you will be storing the trailer in a cold climate. If instead it will be stored in a moderate/mild climate zone then use their UltraShield 5th Wheel Cover # CAM45729. These covers feature different construction intended to better protect your trailer under the different storage...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Does Camco RV Power Defender Circuit Analyzer CAM55313 Protect Against Low Voltage
  • The Camco RV Power Defender Circuit Analyzer # CAM55313 does not protect against low voltage. But there is a similar product that does both low voltage and surge protection. It is the Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Monitor # CAM55306. It disconnects power in a dangerous voltage situation and will reconnect when voltage gets to the 102 to 132 volt safe range.

  • 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.
