We just bought our first trailer - a Boler
1700 from 1978 - which we're giving a little refresh before a 6 month road trip Fall
Sadly we received very limited
information about her from the previous owners as there was a language barrier and they hadn't owned it long.
After lots of digging around online I've found the manual however we've got a few issues/questions and are hoping for your advice!
Dometic RM360 Fridge Won't Light
The previous owner said they got it lit and had frozen ice to prove it however we haven't had any luck lighting
it in gas mode, even after lighting
the stove first. Not sure where is the access to try lighting
it with a match is.
We lit the pilot on the furnace
however the flame isn't increasing and after 30-60 mins. the metal box the encloses the pilot flame can be touched with your hand. In contrast the hot water heater flame got very big so we don't think the flame is increasing.
We got the stove top working and oven pilot lit however the oven's burner (?) doesn't ignite from the pilot to produce more heat. We tried lighting the burner directly, adjusting the oven temperature and closing the oven door and leaving it for a while.
Does anyone know the capacity of the fresh, grey and black water tanks?
Is there a way to gauge their fullness included or as a modification? The manual says to dump the black water tank at 3/4 full but how would I know when that is?
Okay this is a bit broad. I see there is an electrical
box and have a vague idea of what it does (converting shore power to 12 volts??) but we're hoping to add solar
power to the trailer. Does this existing system provide any benefit to a new solar battery
system or should we remove it and build our new system from scratch?
Any tips and information would be greatly appreciated as we embark on getting this camper all ready for our big trip!
