RE: breaker keeps blowing

Mine will trip a 30 amp pedestal if I run the AC (~15 A) , the WH on electric (~12 A), and the microwave or much anything else at the same time. Run the water heater on propane to save that 12 amps for other things.

RE: 30amp Y Splitter for 2 RV's

My AC will trip a 15 amp breaker. If you have two RVs both running an AC, that will most likely trip the 30 amp breaker. And you sure couldn’t run anything else.

RE: New Mexico 'Quarantine" Requirements

Yep. And now it will get closed on baseless “facts”.

RE: New Mexico 'Quarantine" Requirements

With some states with record new cases and hospitalizations almost every day, other states are implementing restrictions. Anyone traveling across states should check ahead on what, in any, restrictions they may encounter to avoid surprises like that.

RE: Melting wires

Agree with all of above. Loose/bad wire connections equals resistance. And resistance and current equals heat. And it doesn't take much resistance to create a lot of heat. Everyone with an RV, new or not, should disconnect from power, throw the battery disconnect switch, and tighten every screw in the circuit breaker panel and fuse panel, AC hot, neutral, ground, and 12 volt. I found about half of mine not tightened correctly.

RE: marginal park power on hot days

My Travel Trailer has a 30 amp plug. I've had good luck at some campgrounds by buying a 50 amp to 30 amp cheater plug and plugging into the 50 amp receptacle. .......... That’s not a cheater. Simply a 50 to 30 adapter. Many 30 amp people do that as the 50 amp receptacle is often better.

RE: Required signing waiver of responsibilty

This smells like an attorney's idea. ... My point is, a lot of zealous attorneys are advising their clients to either shut down or make releases a condition of reopening. Maybe that's what's happening with this park. Which is what you would do if you owned a business you wanted to protect from frivolous law suits that could at least be a huge inconvenience or at worst ruin your business.

RE: KOA work

If you plan on staying at any KOAs in your travels, then get the membership. If you stay at a KOA more than about 8 nights, then it will pay for itself. Then you can check the listings, and staying there speak to people at KOAs and get a feel for how they like working there, their duties, and experience required. Since they are franchises, it will vary according to what the owner/operator wants.

RE: Black Tank Roof Vent and Bathroom Roof Vent Too Close?

Unfortunately, a common layout since both are typically right about the toilet. And every time you flush, the sudden drop of water into the black tank will push that volume of air out the vent. And if the wind direction is blowing from the tank vent to the open bathroom vent, in it goes. A new vent with a fan might solve the problem, but would require wiring in the electric.

RE: Transfer switch salvagable?

Not likely something that can be rebuilt except by factory trained technicians who can diagnose the problem and replace the faulty parts, if they are replaceable at all.

RE: Heads up to anyone coming to NY

People believe what they want to believe, what they hear from social media and non medical people, instead of what all the medical experts are saying.

RE: Water Heater Help

Maybe I read your post wrong. I often do that. If you are running on electric and propane at the same time is it possible that it is simply shutting off because the water got hot enough and it didn't need to run anymore ??? That was my thinking when I asked if it happened while he was running on both at the same time. But he did not reply.

RE: Required signing waiver of responsibilty

Likely as not you have signed similar when checking into an RV park and did not read all the fine print.

RE: Water Heater Help

You mentioned propane and electric at the same. Was it on electric also when you are having trouble with the propane? Does it do the same if electric is off?

RE: Leaving breakers in the camper on while away?

Ours is a 2007 bought new and always powered when in storage. And breakers have never been turned off. As others said, never head if it.

RE: Got a call from a friend...

Did he by chance turn the battery disconnect switch? Or he could installed the battery wired reversed polarity. Happens more often than it should. Will blow the reverse polarity fuses.

RE: Florida Plates; How to Prove We haven't Been There Lately.

Texas was limiting travel from Louisiana (when La. was a hot spot for covid19) to Texas by setting up stops on major highways, taking information, and requiring 2 week self quarantine after entering the state. Not doing that now. Now Texas is a hot spot you may want to avoid. Don’t know if any states are prohibiting or restricting travel right now except some northeastern states. Google should provide you with state by state info.

RE: 2002 Ford Diesel 7.4 ??

7.3 diesel??? Considered the best Ford diesel engine ever. Still in demand. Not nearly the power of new ones, but highly reliable if in good condition.

RE: How to price a used fifth wheel.

Go on and get their "low retail" value. Print it out, show it to him, cut it in half or less and offer that to him.

RE: Toll roads or not

If interested in speed over scenery, then take the interstates, toll or not. Not if that is an option. Or if the toll fee is not important, then take the one that your routing app suggest. If speed is not important, and you do not mind smaller slower highways, then avoid the interstates.
