RE: Ground material falling into lower storage compartment

Yeah, I just skip things like this without reading.

RE: Easy startup for A.C.

A link to the item you are describing would help us find out what you are talking about.

RE: Gray Tank Smell (Seriously annoying)

You can always put your own P trap in the stinky slinky if leaving the gray valve open.

RE: Cleaning trailer electric cord contacts

As I was hooking up to leave (on 7/4) for a 6 week trip into Canada, I got the "left turn signal failure" message. I sprayed carburetor cleaner into each of the 7-pin's sockets and scraped it with a small screwdriver. I followed that with WD-40 and the screwdriver. Fixed the problem so far (10 days later). Carburetor cleaner and WD-40 were what I had on hand and I was getting ready to pull out.

RE: What size generator to run AC??

With the 5 gal jug, I then need to hold it up while pouring, using the asinine eco-spouts that require 6 hands to operate and still drizzle fuel over the top of the generator for 2-3 minutes width=320

RE: Dump Valve cable stiff.

Just use this. I have used it for 43 years. Doug I had to use google to find a video to show how this thing works. Here is the video I found. Motion-Pro-Cable Luber video

RE: Electrical question

And now you have people with electric vehicles plugging in which will make things worse. Please provide a link that supports your opinion. Link? Why? If the campground has a low voltage problem already with just RVs plugged in, plugging in EVs too will not make it better.

RE: Nubs on stabilizer rod worn down. Can these be replaced?

My preference would be white lithium grease, but any grease is better than no grease.

RE: Electrical question

The open ground is referring to the safety ground. As long as nothing shorts out to the frame, you are fine without it. For decades, houses were wired with hot and neutral but no safety ground. My sister inherited our parents' house built in 1957 and is remodeling it. It has no 3 prong plugs because it has no safety ground wires, anywhere. (She is replacing all of the electric so she will be properly grounded when finished.) Where the safety ground is useful is when something does short a hot wire to the frame. That energizes the frame and you can get a nasty, potentially lethal, shock if standing on the ground and touching the frame. The safety ground, however, immediately shorts that hot wire out to trip the breaker.

RE: Battery disconnect - switch or fuse?

The 10 amp fuse you pulled is likely for the break away brakes. Put it back. A negative disconnect will probably also disable the break away brakes so you can't pull the trailer on a road with it turned off. I'd just use a circuit breaker in the positive main wire. Breakaway brakes are not supposed to be fused. I would go with a switch and the Negative cable is a good spot or it. I've seen a lot of argument on negative or positive. but I favor Negative. On many RV's there are multiple POSITIVE wires is one reason Another is if you are removing the battery and start with the POSITIVE lead.. if the swich is off and the wrench slips. No harm done But if the switch is in the positive you can end up with a nasty burn and a melted wrench and worse. Multiple positive wires can be combined. Always remove the negative cable from the battery first. That way, if the wrench slips when removing the negative cable, no problem. If the wrench slips when removing the positive cable, no problem. In other words, the wrench slipping is never a problem. If the switch is on the positive, you can’t get a nasty burn and a melted wrench and worse because you took the negative clamp off first.

RE: Trailer disconnected message on F150

1. Trace the wires to see where they go. 2. Edit your post and put width=640 just before the closing {/img}.

RE: Battery disconnect - switch or fuse?

This is what I use and I have it on the negative cable without problems. Many will tell you this is wrong and it might be but it has worked on two trailers for 14 years. Battery switch It's only wrong if it also disconnects the breakaway brakes.

RE: Domicile

And what would you change on a passport? A passport has absolutely nothing on it identifying your domicile when you receive it. There is a place on a page for YOU to write that information in, but there are instructions in the passport, itself, telling you to write it in pencil so you can change it.

RE: What size generator to run AC??

Why don't you like the microair? It did not work nearly as well as my autoformer. Correct me if I am wrong, but they do two completely different things. The Micro-Air reduces the amp draw of the air conditioner on startup. The autoformer increases voltage when, and only when, voltage sags.

RE: Air conditioner stopped working

It's been awhile, but when I installed my Easy Start, it had me disconnect the soft start capacitor. (Now, the run capacitor stayed connected.) I am sure someone will correct me if I am wrong.

RE: Plumbing Confusion

When I de-winterized my Airstream this spring, I was getting little water from the hot water tap. I took a wooden rod and gently tapped on the backflow check valve at the top of my water heater, and the hot water stream increased significantly. I think either that valve had stuck, or some detritus had partially clogged it up. When I tapped it it either unstuck, or the detritus flushed on out.

RE: Another Zamp solar plug question

Get a volt/ohm meter (multimeter) and check to see if the Zamp is connected to the battery. Then check the polarity of the Zamp connector. Then check the polarity of the power from the solar panels. A mismatch in any of those may be your problem.
