  • Hello,

    I am new to this forum. I am having an issue with my TAB 320 heater. I think it is a propane pressure problem. Does the TAB have any kind of propane filter that needs to be serviced? My stove flame seems low pressure and the furnace will not ignite.

      estroup, Try disconnecting the line to the tank (turn the valve off first), reconnect. Turn the valve for the slowly open, and try it again. Just an FYI, it's helpful if you give the year & model for your trailer when looking for assistance as well. Give it a try, and let us know. Are you sure you have a full tank of propane?

      Thank you very much. The Year is a 2013. I think it is a 320. Your suggestion worked. Is this a common problem. My heat has been very reliable until now. We are at high elevation, 10,400 feet but it has worked great at altitude until now. Thanks, Ed

      estroup, Sometimes, when you either change tanks, or turn the propane valve at the tank on too fast, the regulator goes haywire for some, unknown reason. Don't feel badly, or like you're the only one that it has happened to. It's happened to me before & was a real head-scratcher before I decided to start all over again.
      Glad to hear you got it resolved. There is a high altitude regulator fix kit available for the Alde. Call either Marvin, or Elsie for more info. You'll find the number under the nuCamp contacts under Categories. just click on the heading & all the numbers will come up for you.

    Hello, William.  I'm just seeing this.  Do you still have it?

  • I have the 2015 Canyon with tow package. I have the SLT package and a Leer bed cap that is 4" higher than the cab.

    I now have a toy hauler now and I run the frig on propane as I drive. The frig is set in the camper sideways as opposed to where the flame is in the 2015 T@Bitha that I had. The flame blew out in the T@B. I *never* ran the T@B frig on 12V. I'd turn on 12V to cool it down overnight. I put things in it that were cold. Before towing, I'd turn off the frig. I also put a frozen jug of water inside it on hot days.

    Keep in mind that I rarely drove more than 3-5 hours away. My food never got warm. When at the campsite, I'd run it on propane even though I had electric. The ammonium heat exchange frigs work better and more efficient on propane.

    Many people have had good luck running the frig on propane when they drive. Other people have had horrid luck. I think it's a function of the tow vehicle and air flow. The Canyon got better gas mileage than my Rav4 when towing the T@B. Both were V6's, but you know the Canyon has a 7000# tow rating and is made to tow nicely. I didn't read the 2015's computer allowed the alternator to run at 14.5V when towing mode was on. I always run the lights and extra fog lights when towing too. Makes sense since I've checked alternator output and transmission temperature and they were both great.

    Hope this helps!!

    PS.. this is not a private message. LOL. Anyone can read it. Just FYI.

    Hi Rzrbug, i saw a picture of a table/platform you posted.  Can you tell me where you purchased that?

    I installed a Lagun table in my tab, which is great for most things, but something that angled up for reading, like the one you pictured,  would be very nice.

    thanks in advance.

    Hello Ratkity,

    Have some questions regarding your GMC Canyon TV and the 3-way Fridge operation while on the road.  I may have missed the answer in the various fridge operation discussions.

    There seems to be a wide variation of TV results when attempting to operate the fridge on 12VDC while driving.  Your TV is basically the same as mine, so:

    When you had the T@B was the truck able to power the fridge on 12VDC and maintain the trailer house battery at full charge?

    You don't state what model-year the Canyon is; New Generation 2015+ ?

    Thanks,
      Muttonchops ( Craig )

    Side note:
          On at least the 2016+ GM twin mid-size trucks engaging tow/haul mode (or turning on the headlights) does override the truck computer control of the alternator output so a full 14+VDC is provided even when the truck battery is fully charged.

    I really like your portable work table and water dispenser. Could you please share the brand of both and where you purchased them. Thanks. Roberta from Pagosa Springs.

  • Welcome to our nice weather!  Where are you staying near Mancos?  We have good friends there and go to the Absolute Bakery all the time.  We spent last night with friends in Pagosa and they actually had a little snow on the ground.  It sounds like your heater is working...just “freight train” noisy?  No water running could easily be not enough in the tank...our 2014/15 model has the 5gal tank inside and under the sink; if yours is newer you might have the 11gal tank outside and therefore more vulnerable to freezing.  With the warm daytime temps here, I’d suggest winterizing...drain the lines and push some pink stuff into them (and drink the vodka...!).  You can run the Alde for heat on propane or electric without water in the lines.  Hope this helps and happy trails!

    Hey DurangoTaB. I am here just outside Durango in Mancos visiting from SoNV. I am having that sooty issue and the ruuuumble. It was rather loud last night. I slept in a house last night and when I came out I noticed the soot. Also, no water is running, (had a small amount in tank for travel). Would I need to bring it in to be checked and if I am already frozen, how would I winterize?? Antifreeze ~vs~vodka? (watched a video about vodka...funny)any help is appreciated.

    Hi. My name is Jace and I am a NUBe to the T@B Outback. I have a Max S version with the shower and commode. What type of insulation did you use on the bottom of your T@B? Was it easy to install? I like the simplicity of your plan of keeping the tanks warm without spending an exorbitant amount of money. I am in Colo over the Christmas break and the weather has been really mild until last night when it dipped into freezing. Of course I believe my tanks froze. I had the ALDE heating system going at about 66 and it's been doing well over the last few days. But this morning I came  out to find a little "core-like" bit of ice below the exhaust port and a black sooty substance in the exhaust fan. Would your system that you have wrote about work to prevent this?  I have read other threads about the soot in the exhaust above 3000'. I normally live in southern Nevada at altitudes of 2800' and in the desert so freezing we get but far and few in-between. I am a bit concerned that I will have to order a "kit" as I plan on more outings into the higher altitude areas. I am not mechanically inclined, at least on Teardrops. On people that's another story. Any help in this matter will definitely be appreciated.  Thanks
