Expert Answers about Atwood

  • Difference Between Ducted and Non-Ducted AC Units for RV
  • 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.

  • How To Manually Raise The Atwood Power Jack # AT81068 And Does It Have a Fuse
  • If you have the Atwood Powered A-Frame jack # AT81068, it will have an alignment tube opening that will be used to manually control the raising or lowering of your jack. You would place the manual override ratchet and socket, that is included with the jack, into the opening and crank the handle clockwise to raise the jack or counterclockwise to lower the jack. If you have the Atwood Standard or Lightweight jack it will not have a opening for a manual override handle. You would need...

  • Is the Atwood Actuator 84132 a Direct Replacement For Atwood Actuator 85778
  • The Atwood Actuator, # 84132, may work for you, but there are a few things we will want to know to determine if it is a direct replacement. 85778 is actually the Atwood Literature number for their installation, operation and maintenance manual. We will need to know what size hitch ball is used with this actuator, the size of the trailer tongue, the weight capacity of your actuator and if you are using disc or drum brakes. The Atwood Actuator, # 84132, is bolted on with two bolts into...

  • Replacement Heating Element for Atwood Water Heater Model GC6AA-10E
  • The Replacement Electric Heating Element for Atwood Water Heaters # AT92249 that you referenced is the correct replacement for your GC6AA-10E Atwood water heater. I was able to confirm this replacement part number with Atwood. The heating element will work well in your 6-gallon, goes-and-electric-combination water heater.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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. The Bulldog Powered-Drive Trailer Jack - Drop Leg - A-Frame - 14 inch Lift - 4,000 lbs, # BD500199, has a lift range of 14 inches, the only other added feature...

  • 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.

  • How to Bleed Hydraulic Brakes with the Atwood Actuator # 84137
  • A method that we have used to bleed hydraulic brakes with an actuating coupler is to use a pair of vice grips. Attach the vice grips to the front of the ball coupler and slowly push in, then extend the ball coupler into the actuator. Check out the actuator repair video that I have attached. In this video, our installer is repairing an Atwood actuating coupler similar to your # 84137 coupler. At the 6 minute and 30 second mark, he uses a pair of vice grips to bleed the brakes on the trailer. Make...

  • Trailer Hasp Lock Recommendation to Prevent Theft
  • For the cam style latch you have the Atwood AMPlock Door Handle Latch Locks # AT89015 that you referenced would work well in the future once you replace your hasp. For a replacement hasp we have the part # 158-101. I attached a picture with it's dimensions.

  • 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...

  • Gears Jumping when Motor is Activated on the Atwood RV Landing Gear, # 75333
  • It sounds as if you will need to replace gear box on your Atwood Fifth-Wheel Landing Gear, # 75333. The gear box, # 75054SP, is a complete unit and internal parts are not available. You may also need to replace the gears in the top of the jacks . You will need to take the top of the jacks off and count the gears in the assemblies to determine which gears you will need. If your gears are the older style they will both have 15 teeth. The part number for the older 15 tooth gears is 75030. If...

  • How To Bleed Trailer Brakes
  • You are in luck! We happen to have a video on the proper procedure for bleeding trailer brakes. I have attached the video below as well as outline the method here for you. First top off the master cylinder with appropriate fluid. Next you will want to pump the fluid from the master cylinder. You can do this by unbolting the plate that holds the lever in place and then use that lever to actuate the master cylinder and force the fluid through. On some units, you will have to manually activate...

  • How to Install Replacement Spring Loaded Latch and Handle for Atwood Trailer Brake Actuator
  • Apparently the instructions are just the exploded view of the actuator that you have already seen. I spoke with Atwood and they do not have written instructions that explain how to install the Replacement Spring Loaded Latch and Handle # 85844. So what I did was retrieve an actuator from the warehouse and take it apart to figure out how to install the parts. Basically, you have to take the entire actuator apart to get to the handle parts. Everything has to come out from the master...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • What is the Difference Between a Manual Lockout and No Lockout Brake Actuator
  • A brake actuator with a manual lockout, like part # 84132, will have a lockout lever on the actuator that prevents the internal spring and shock from engaging the master cylinder when backing up (see photo). A no lockout brake actuator, like part # 8605001, does not have this feature, so the trailer would either need free-backing brakes or an electric lockout solenoid like part # DM11993 to keep the brakes from locking up while in reverse. Backing up a trailer with hydraulic surge...

  • 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.

  • Will Atwood Replacement Actuator Shock Fit a Gabriel P7044 MPD 85746
  • The actuator shock in your picture looks to be the same as Atwood shock # 85830. To be sure it is a fit though we need to go by the measurements. The Atwood shock is 8-1/4 inches retracted and 11 inches extended.

  • 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...

  • Replacement Actuator For Atwood Stamped 61101
  • I called the manufacturer (Atwood) and they said that they did not have an Atwood coupler with the part number of 61101 (they thought it might be the date code on the coupler). If you have drum brakes the part # 84132 would be a great option. Or if you have disc brakes part # T4745720 would work well since at this time we don't carry the Atwood disc actuators. We most likely will in the future again though. Then for a single axle brake line kit the part # 18SI-BLKIT would work well.

  • Recommended Cover for Dometic Duo-Therm A/C Unit
  • For the Dometic Duo-Therm Briskair AC unit you can use grey cover # CA80070 from Camco. Camco also offers covers for the Dometic DuoTherm Brisk II air conditioner, part # CAM45269 in black or part # CAM45399 in white. 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.

  • Replacement Shock for Atwood Trailer Brake Surge Actuator
  • If you are able to push in the actuator by hand then the shock is bad and it will need to be replaced. It should take a lot of leverage to move it to where you could only really do it with some type of tool or lever (like a 2x4). It does sound like the shock does need to be replaced. For an Atwood actuator you would use # 85830.

  • Replacement Gear Box for Atwood Landing Gear on a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • It sounds like you potentially need replacement gear box assembly # 75054SP for your Atwood landing gear. If the set up on your brother's trailer looks like # 75333 then this is the correct replacement. It is the only Atwood gear box that we carry.

  • Atwood Actuator Replacement Recommendation for a 82543 on a Boat Trailer

  • 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.

  • 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...
