Re: Robertson Screwdrivers
Thank you for all your advice - I'll order a green #1 for now as I need that size. I have tried Ace, Sears and Home Depot and none of the employees knew of this tool. They searched their displays but only found square bits, in multi-bit sets. Seems this screw style should be more popular in the US as the design is better than the slot or phillips.
Our 'new' RV adventure is becoming a full-time occupation - reviewing manuals, searching for tire scales, sourcing rear door weatherstripping, trying to determine what brand of house batteries we have (not going to disconnect the mass of wires on the terminals to read the label), finding a 115V pigtail we thought we'd have to purchase stuffed in a cubbyhole, etc. It's like buying your first house and learning how everything works (all over again).
This is especially challenging as there are no monitor panels, gauges or meters inside a 1989 RT. This convenience was an innovation in 1990. Besides the furnace thermostat we have several on/off switches under beds, in cupboards, under seats, and likely other places as yet undiscovered. The house batteries have caps, so I guess we need to check the water level, but I want to see the charge level first. Eventually found my old multimeter so we'll see if the batteries have life tomorrow. I hope so as electricity + bed + wheels is the main reason we bought a RT. We can do without the stove, refrigerator, bathtub, hot water, toilet, furnace and A/C for now - one system at a time.
Question 1 - there are updated regulations for portable propane tanks: are there any new fixed tank regulations? Looks like we have the original configuration; analogue gauge and an 80% spit valve, outside at the fill.
Question 2 - the previous owner had a new, probably rebuilt, transmission installed two years ago. I have the invoice but the notation, 'MBROTH492' yields zip on Google. How can I identify the make and specs for the transmission?
