Brought the trailer home from the RV service shop. Owner told me that the burner was dirty and rusty. There was flame, but about 25% of what it should be. The tech cleaned the system thoroughly then did a LP pressure test and a leak test. All good. Tested the fridge and it was cooling. Now I am doing my own test and in abut 2 hours the thermometer has dropped from 80F to 60F inside the fridge. I will leave it on and see how quickly it gets down below 40F. Looks like LP system should be inspected at least once a year. This is a quote from the "manual":
"It is recommended that the gas burner be
inspected and cleaned as necessary at
least once a year. When using liquefied
petroleum gas (tank or refill cylinders) the
maintenance interval is reduced. Keep the
evidence of maintenance work carried out on
At the same time I had them repack the bearings and check and clean the brakes. They found one bearing had some score marks and so replaced it. As I am the second owner thought it would be a good idea to have this done to establish a "base line". In other words knowing all was good. We head to Calgary on Monday to do some camping with the grandchildren.
