Who Makes It? and Speedo Conn?


Does anyone know who makes the Power Board for Winnebago (1999 Adventurer)? I have been on the winn: website and my coach info does not cover it?

I am looking to install a "hot rod" to the Atwood heater and the obvious connection would be to add a 15A breaker to one of the unused ways and switch it directly But I need to source a Correct fitting breaker.

Whilst on Does anyone know where the feed for the Speedometer is taken from on the Ford (F53?) Triton chassis?

There is a connection on the top of the rear axle????

Do yourself a favor and only use a heater that has a stainless steel sleeve. Find the breaker that has the TV or refrigerator circuit, and add the heater to it. Do not use the Microwave, battery charger, or air conditioner circuit. You may not need a separate and new breaker. The wattage is usually around 400 watts for the water heater. Check the labeling to make sure. A 15 Amp breaker is designed to handle 1440 Watts for eight hours at 120 Volts.

Usually the "Hot Rod" kits have a switch with a light on it. By power board I assume you are referring to the "One Place Panel" there all the indicators, meters and thermostat are. If so that is done by Winnebago. If you use the switch on the panel, you need a relay to switch the power at the water heater.

The Hott rod is fitted, I connected it direct to one of the least used 15amp Recep; circuit Breakers. Runs fine and pulls about 3amps. Which should be OK as the Outlets only charge cell phones etc; normally.

Still could use advice ref the F53 take off for the speedo drive I am assuming it has to be on the output drive train ? But where?
