Suggested Questions And Answer :


I just bought a used Sportsmobile built in 2002. The Porta Potti was never used butI need a users manual to figure out how to use and maintain it. I can't find a model or serial number. It just says "Porta Potti Electric". Given that it is a 2002 product can you figure out what model it is and tell me how I can obtain a users manual?


According to the Sportsmobile custom website, the porta potti you have is called a Thetford Electric flush porta potti. There is only one electric flush made by Thetford, so a model number is not necessary to locate instructions or a manual that shows maintenance and use ect.Here is a link to the manual, parts list and usage instructions for your Porta Potti. When the page opens, click on the link on the top right hand side that says "manual" to download a PDF version to save to your computer.I hope this helps? If you are happy with my solution, please rate it on Fixya! Thanks!http://www.thetford.com/HOME/PARTS/PortableToilets/PortaPottiElectricand585PartsNEW/tabid/656/Default.aspx

My Pro-Torx has never been used but was stored for 7 years and does not seem to be taking a charge. I have not let it charge for 12 hours - should I?


Try a 12-hour charge but I believe you will find that it can't be revived.

New, never used. Bulb appears OK. Plugged it in


The battery is replaceable, I would first take the old battery out first and test it to make sure it is charged at 12 volts before I replace it. If it is less than 12 volts than I would look at replacing it. You can order a new one from Black and Decker. They bought vector in 2006. You will need the model #, here is the link; http://www.dewaltservicenet.com/servicenet_home.aspx?AspxAutoDetectCookieSupport=1

Bought the rechargeable light new a couple years ago, used one time for about 90 seconds. Went to use it again, it was dead. plugged in the battery charger into the cig lighter and it worked after 5 min. charging. I let it charge another 15 min. and it quit working. I then charged it with the electric charger and it never came on. What now?


First, ensure the charger is delivering voltage using a volt meter. If it is, the battery is probably bad. If you have soldering skills, the light can probably be disassembled and a replacement battery can be purchased from Radio Shack or online.

I bought a vector 20 million power series sport/spot light and based my purchase on reviewsand company reputation. After receiving the light in the mail I followed the instructions charging it for the proper length of time then tried the light at night in a wooded area near my home. First impressions were anything but favorable, the light was poorly designed ergonomicallythe on-off switches were positioned to put it bluntly in a very stupid place making it awkward to turn off and on. I was ok with the lights size and weight it was just the way it was designed that made its size and weight a detriment to ease of use. Next after a several day full and complete charge I put the light in the trunk of my car to be ready for use on a weekend camping trip. When we arrived at the campsite and began setting up I got the vector out with high expectation of it lighting up my area so I could set up my tent so I set it up turned it on and at first thought wow this is great adjusted the stand started setting up camp when the brand new VECTOR 20 million candle power light slowly started to dim out all to my chagrin of course. within minutes it was dead as a doornail. Almost a HUNDRED dollars for a flashlight and my old trusty 1 million candle power DORCEY spotlight purchased from Harbor Freight that fortunately was in the trunk of my car came to the rescue.A cheap 10 dollar spotlight not only was brighter but it lasted the entire time it took to set up camp. After the weekend was over and I was back at home I emailed the vector company and to be honest was treated with a cross between sarcasism and indifference when I expressed my concerns. I was more than a little surprised and caught completely off guard so much so I allowed myself to be dismissed when I asked if I could trade in y brand new spotlight on one of equal or the one I was interested in trading on was a fair bit more expensive. My less than polite or helpful customer service represenative told me that they do not do that and in so much words he made it clear that I was stuck with the one I have and that it is clearly written in the ad that it is a large floodlight,. I gave up figured I had been stuck with the floodlight and swallowed my pride after writing a less than favorable review on the floodlight. I just had to write again I just took the light out to look at a car I had trouble with today turned it on and thought hey this is working ok but within 15 minutes the light dimmed very quickly till it was stone dead and I could not see anything. So out of sheer frustration I am writing this letter to express my feelings once more. Again I broke out my 10 dollar dorcey floodlight that had been hanging on a hook not plugged in and charging just hanging took it outside and it not only lit up my car but lasted the entire time and was still going strong when I finished brought it in hung it up and put the charger on it. So after this long winded explanation about one of your products it comes down to "I WOULD NEVER AGAIN BUY ANY VECTOR PRODUCTS NOR RECOMMEND THEM TO ANYONE!" I am stuck with this lemon I am trying to decide what the best job could be for this floodlight and all I could think of is that it would work well as a corner weight on the tarpaulin that I have covering my car. Sincerely, James R. Clement. A dissatisfied customer .


This light has'nt really like others much that can go wrong. I'm sorry to hear you had so many problems. I have this light and recieved it second hand, without an owners manual. I went to VectorMfg.com which redirected me to Black & Deckers web site. I there downloaded an owners manual. If I would'nt have done that I may have also posted many of the questions reguarding this light. There are many inportant things to know before use and continued use. The bulb and battery are replacable. Hope this helps! Matthew

Streamlight Model 4, AA, Propolymer Torch: It's an older model never been used, have put in new batteries & it will not work at all. Any solutions?


If batteries were left in the flashlight, it could be corroded on the most inner contact, shine a light, if it's green, try cleaning with alcohol and some scotchbrite, roll it up to fit inside the barrel.
