Question about Pool & Spa
New gas line was put in and line was bled. Could it be line wasn't bled enough or thermostat is bad?

I had a similar problem and believe it or not it was the CAT. An easy way to test for this is to remove the O2 sensor right in front of the CAT. Once you removed it, plug it back in while unscrewed from the exhaust pipe and start up the truck. If it runs fine, the CAT is your problem. This is just a guess and it would be an easy and very cheap($0) test. You did not say if the truck was diesel or gas. Mine is gas that was exhibiting the same problem as yours...good luck!

please try a simple test for me. no.1: remove the radiator cap off the radiator. no.2: if you could see the see the radiator opening from within you car much better, then try to crank your car to an idle. if coolant blows out of the mouth of the radiator like an erupting volacano, then take note of this. no.3: while the engine is running at idle try to look at the coolant through the mouth of the radiator, if you see bubbles like washing your hands with soap and the suds trailing to a drain, then take note of this.
the reason why i'm telling you all of this is that, the coolant should flow like a clear stream. you don't have to worry about purging the system of air because, the water pump is already situated a few inches below the highest water capacity of the radiator. it means that if you drained your system and refiled the radiator to the brim, just start your engine and add a few more coolant to fill it up because the running engine simply purges the waterpump of air.
now, if you tried no.2, and you did see and somewhat like an errupting volcano, that means your engine is in serious trouble, so is no.3. however, a tolerable bubble flow is still possible but your valve clearances should be tuned if this happens. excessive bubbles accompanied by blow out of coolant means your combustion gases are seeping through the head gasket due to a damaged head gasket, warped cyclinder head, cracked cylinder head, or even a cracked cyclinder liner(or bore where the piston glides up and down). think back! did you ever experienced overheating you car to a point where it stalled completely? then, you need a thourough engine checkup.

I think you have a bad fuseable link. Also,
I suspect your alternator is not charging your battery.
You have power with the new one, and it ran for the 20 minutes on your old battery. There also may be a
starter relay unit under the hood.

Actually, the clicking is likely causing the shaking. Inside the manifold of a H100 is a stainless steel diverter plate that send some of the passing water into the heat exchanger and lets the rest past and back to the pool. When it breaks, you will hear a 'clicking' noise at it rattles in the water path. When it breaks, the flow to the heat exchanger is intermittent and you will begin to boil the water, causing the shaking. This situation is dangerous, especially without a pressure relief in the heater or pipe. As long as your water chemistry is sound, Hayward will usually cover this under warranty even if the unit is over a year old.
