20 Most Recent Coleman Campers Grill Questions & Answers

There is generally a water pump fitted. In the early days of campers the water had to be pumped manually by either a foot or a hand pump and later people grew lazy and so electric pumps were fitted. At first these were controlled by a switch or button close by each faucet and needed to be held pushed in for water to flow - for obvious reasons the flow stopped when the button was released.

Later people grew impatient as well as lazy and also tended to be slightly wealthier and liked to take a shower so the system was automated. The electric pump was integrated with a water pressure switch so when a faucet is turned on the water pressure fell and turned on the pump and when the faucet was turned off a significant pressure would build in the pipework, sufficient to cause the pressure switch to turn off the pump.

The scope of the equipment varies a great deal depending on the amount of water carried, the size of the camper, the hot water system and the price range and could be anything from a single submerged pump to a multipump system to provide a luxury shower.

I suggest you obtain a manual or owner's handbook in order to discover the equipment fitted to your camper and how to operate/troubleshoot it. Such information is of particular importance if the camper will encounter freezing temperatures during the winter lay over. Failure to winterise properly can cause a great deal of expensive damage.

Assuming you are referring to the Coleman Campers Grill Stove which is a side by side grill and stove unit than it is a pretty simple set up. All portable Coleman stoves set up basically the same. There should be a arm known as a regulator that came with the stove. The narrow end of this attaches to the right side of the stove and screws in. Then the propane bottle screws into the other larger end. make sure all connections are screwed together tightly. For more clarification check out these instructions:

Good Luck!

Hitch: Verify the obvious. 1-7/8" or 2" ball and coupler. Some couplers can be and may need to be adjusted. Look for a screw on the rear side.

Sorry, not much help on the lift system. Although, I rigged a winch up to my coleman instead of replacing the whiffle tree. You may be able to do similar.

If it leaks while filling it is likely any of the several fittings or it may be the 3 port check valve attached to the incomming water line. These are routinely installed backward. The idea is that when hooked to an external water supply the water goes only to the faucet and when using the tank, water can only go from the tank to the faucet. You cannot be hooked to external water and use the tank.

Any cracks in the tank should be obvious.

Use teflon plumbers tape on all screw fittings or will leak for sure. Hose clamps are also a necessity.

It is not difficult however, it may not be broken. First, verify all the pins in the crank linkage are not sheared and thus not turning the wiffle screw. There is on not visible from the outside. Under the camper is a rectangular tube usually mounted between the 2nd and 3rd crossmember. It is just a cover. Remove the cover and near the front is the probable culprit. Just turn the crank and look to see if the wiffle tree screw is turning.

If the handle won't turn or is very hard to turn, the wiffle tree is likely bad. The four cables are attached with welded closed eye-bolts. Just back of the nuts and remove them keeping track of where they go and how much exposed thread is showing. This is the adjustment for the cables to ensure even lifting. On the front the 2nd crossmember is a thrust bearing under a small rectangular cover. Remove the cover, seperate the crank linkage rods and remove the bearing and it's spacer as a set. Pull the wiffle tree screw with the bar the eye-bolts were attached to, forward. It may need some persuasian but it is just a slip fit in the rear and will come forward to remove it. Install new one in reverse order.

Make sure you have a water regulator connected to the water source before connecting it to your RV or the pressure could blow out your plumbing. The force of the water coming from the faucet can be too much for any RV and a regulator can be purchased from RV dealers, camping world, and even some Wal Marts carry them.

You either have a broken cable, or it may have come loose. Gain access to your anchor points and check the cables. Replacement cable can be purchased "by the foot" al Lowe's/similar as well as cable nuts and such Check the axels and spools powered by the hand crank for anything out of whack, like a broken weld on a cable drum, etc.

May sound a bit tacky but all pop ups are a bit tedious to crank up. In the event this IS NOT your first time to own or operate a pup. I apologize and suggest you post your problem on the pop up times and or the pux webpages. Both are reliable sources for people who have pop up up or small campers.

yeah, it could be getting low on freon but you also could turn up the ac a bit... if your running at 68 degrees or something turn it up to 72 and it wont freeze up as quick.

sounds like the compressor in your air conditioner has a broken spring in it,you can not take the compressor apart to fix,has to be replaced(cashy).I assume your camper is shaking,and the noise only happens when you turn on the air.
