Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

well, i purchased a power converter, stove, and 2 fresh water tanks off of craigslist. all are from a class C RV a man was scraping. looks like both fresh tanks had their own fill valves but were connected together, has anyone heard of that. also does the power converter look useful? each tank is 25 gallons.

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

those tanks were mounted on the end. in my collection of tanks, i got 2 of them that i got out of a 12 foot chassis mount camper, and re cut the fill and vent holes so that they could be mounted on the sides like most other tanks. They look like the 20 gal ones, and mine were not marked for capacity.
I use the same electrical panel in my bus. i connected it to the electrical transfer switch.
you might want to check the stove.. mostly the oven for proper operation before you install it..fwiw

Thanks Chev49, i wonder if there is a panel i can buy that will allow me to use the fill level indication wires on the tanks, and if they are useful. also the power control center looks like it does AC as well as DC? i will test out the stove before using it.

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

the rv that the panel was taken out of would work for the levels... or any of that era that use the same sensors. i have two different panels for fluid levels, one is a 1988, and the other is a 1978 taken out of a monico motorhome.. the gauges from both of them work the same on my tanks.. so just get an old panel about the same era as your water tanks from a motorhome is my guess...

Your powr control panel is AC on the left, and DC on the right. An AC breaker also goes to run the converter, which is in there as well. In mine, i put an extra 110V breaker because it had an open slot, and put a 30 amp breaker in place of one of the 20 amp ones because the roof air was occasionally tripping the one i had it on when the AC started. The panel takes standard 110v breakers if one of yours ever goes bad.

With your electrical panel, be sure to balance the electric loads for best operation..fwiw

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

well i hit the stove with some 00 steel wool and ATF fluid, here are the results:
before:



after:



i also washed the knobs, and the pot holders, i tried to use the regulator from my grill to test it, but i was afraid of breaking the grill. also here is the inside of the oven, does this plate go above the burner, or on the floor of the oven?
