Technical Support / Re: Aqua-Hot AHE-100-0S3 problem
« Last post by Steve Huber Co-Admin on September 20, 2019, 11:18:11 PM »
Paul,
Glad you found it. If diesel still acts up, I'd PM the unit with new fuel filter and burner nozzle. Also be sure to align electrodes.  Not too bad a DIY job. Instructions are available on web and I think Roger Berke's site also covers it.
The breaker that tripped should have nothing to do with the AH as I think it is for dinette lights and audio visual outlets. Probably tripped due to a transient on the ac line.

Steve,

Reset the panel and turned back on the diesel switch (had turned it off after an hour of cold air), will wait and see.

Don't know if it has anything to do with aqua-hot, but a breaker with a listing of "DNT LTS & A/V RCPTS" had tripped when I went in to shut the diesel switch off.

Coach is in an RV bay, but too narrow to open the slides.  Been raining for several days and no letup in site.

Steve,

Found the problem with the electric and it is working.  Because I could hear things running, it never occurred to me to find the breakers (which are not where I expected) and the heater had tripped.  Once I reset the breaker and let the electric run for about two hours, it was working when I went in and checked, both heat and water. 

I have turned the electric off and the diesel on and will see what happens.  Be nice if the tripped breaker was the problem all along, will update in an hour or so.  Thanks to all the people who contributed ideas, it really helps to have support, and I think I learned a little bit about the aqua-hot along the way!

Steve, the code you have is what is called a Event Code 102 - 1. Excessive Boost Pressure
Conditions Which Generate This Code:  The ECM detects the followings conditions.

The actual boost pressure is higher than the desired boost pressure.  System Response:

Boost pressure is set to ( 0 psi ) DIAG will be displayed next to the status for Boost Pressure
on Caterpillar ( ET ).   Possible Preformance Effect:

The engine may experience low power when the event diagnostic code is active

Troubleshooting:

Determine the cause of excessive boost pressure such as a wastegate for turbocharger that has
failed or a line for wastegate that has been pinched.

Steve this should take you to your problem.  Note look over real good little rubber hose going to
the wastegate real close mainly the metal clips holding hose to wastegate will crack right along
the metal retaining clip, over time the hose will rot out at the metal. Dave Atherton Retired Cat

Fred,

Thank you for the information about the well nuts. All my probes burned up when we had a fire in that compartment and my fresh water tank always shows it a quarter full. I always wonder how accurate my analog display panel is.

   Hi Mandy, It sounds like to me that your 1/4 reading may be a phantom reading that is moisture and not liquid. Not that unusual on an older coach. If you have access to the side of the fresh water tank where the wires attach to the probes, you could replace the 1/4 location with a new "well nut" next to it. A well nut is a rubber sleeve with a stainless steel 10-32 bolt and nut, washer assembly. After you drill a 3/8" hole with a "step drill" you push the well nut into the hole and as you tighten the bolt the rubber expands to seal the hole. remove the nut and install the original wire. You can purchase well nuts at an RV parts department for about $6.00.
  On my coach when the tank says 20%, shortly thereafter the pump won't shut off.    Fred

Sounds like a small leak in either the waterline, at a connector in the waterline, or at a seal in/near the water pump.  You have no wet spots, either on the ground or in the basement when the water tank is over 1/4 full?

When our water tank shows a quarter full it seems the pump has to be primed every time we use the water.  It doesn't do it when the tank is full(100 gallons), 3/4, or 1/2 full; only 1/4 and below.  Does anyone have a clue as to was is happening to the system?  Many thanks.

General Discussion / Re: FUEL DISCOUNT CARD FREE
« Last post by William Jordan on September 20, 2019, 04:23:34 PM »
Keep in mind it’s not a discount card per say. It’s a account with TSD . A primarily trucking firm that negotiated lower bulk fuel prices. TSD via the EFS payment card withdraws the amount the following day from your checking account. I’m fine with this but some are suspicious and won’t give access to their checking account for immediate withdrawals. They won’t use a credit card it must be your checking account.
The discount is best evidently at Loves who in my experience are the highest prices to start with, but your getting 40-50 cents. That gets a pretty good price . I think The pilot flying j prices are actually better using pilots own monthly debit of your account plan that’s connected with good Sam ( not the good Sam discount , the actual pilot credit card )
I haven’t used it yet but the card is in my mail drop waiting for my trip south in November.
