Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

This is the first time we have used the heat in our Forest River Puma Travel Trailer. When we turned it on, the smoke alarm started to chirp. There is a newness like dust burning off smell to the heated air? It is supposed to get cold tonight and we need to know if we can run it, or not.

Usually if it's new, there will be some burn off. Make sure propane detector and smoke alarm, as well as carbon monoxide detector, if you have one, are working. Smell and any smoke should burn off after running a while, if not have it checked to be sure. I'd recommend running it with windows open and roof vents open and any exhaust fans at stove, and roof vents turned on for a while, then shut it off, let trailer air out good, then close windows etc, and see if it's better.

Where is fuse/circuit breaker box on Forest River XLR Nitro 31 FQSL. Have power but slide outs don't work. and can't get inside living room/kitchen.

RV's often put fuses in strange places. I have a forest river but not this model. Check the inside fuse panel first. If you do not see any blown fuses there, check underneath the trailer for an inline fuse. I would call Forest River and/or your dealer if it isn't in one of those two spots.

Owners manual for a 1996 salem by river forest travel trailer

RV manufacturers do not generate an owner's manual such as you would see for a car. They do issue a very generic one for all trailers they manufacture and you can download the latest from the Forest River site. Appliances which are installed have owners manuals as well from their respective manufacturers. I suggest you get on one of the forums for Forest River and your type of trailer and ask fellow RVers any questions you may have. This is the best way to get specific guidance on your trailer,

How to stop drain pipe from leaking on a 2014 shower 1985 lancr travel trailer

Is it leaking at a glued connection or a jam nut connection? If at the jam nut connection you may need to replace the jam nut washer to get a good seal. If it is a glued connection. You may get luck and reseal the connection by swabbing some ABS glue over the leaking area. ABS glue is thick black glue and may be found at your local RV dealership.

2003 wildwood travel trailer manual

Most travel trailer manuals are basically the same. Have you tried contacting the Manufacturer? (Forest River) The appliances are normally separate from the owners manuals, such as fridge, stove, water heater etc. Is there anything specific that you are having concern with at this time, that I may be able to assist with? Also, as far as the appliances go, most manufacturer's have a site you can go to and download manuals for them off the internet.

Rental mgmt company just installed Kidd 112020/40/80 (don't know which one. It does the same thing the previous smoke alarm did - wakes me up in the middle of the night! It chirps every hour, every 30...

They only chirp for two reasons:
1. The sensor is past its useful life and needs replaced
2. There is a power issue with the battery. Even the ones that are hardwired into the electrical system need a battery.
