RE: Small Propane Cylinder

The only problem experienced is that occasionally the valve sticks. Nothing that a couple of whacks with a hammer can't fix. Nothing likes to be hit. That is not a small cylinder problem. It is a cylinder problem. The small cylinder uses exactly the same valve as the 20# and 30# bottles.

RE: How do you measure the ambient temperature?

Welp must’ve touched feelers with the mod. Thanks for deleting something that was well, opinion, just like all the rest of the opinions. If I want to know how warm it is where I am at, I go outside. If I want to know how cold it is, I use my phone. If I want to know how warm it is somewhere else, I use my phone. I wondered why my answer went from the first answer on page 2 to the last answer on page 1.

RE: Small Propane Cylinder

I have two of the 5 pound cylinders. Can get them filled anywhere.

A thermometer in the shade.

RE: MGVWR and problems titling trailer

I am not sure what the "M" in your "GVWR" means Manufacturer I'd empty it and take it to another set of scales to verify dry sticker. What's your tow rig gross combined weight rating?The problem is not with the tow vehicle capacity. The problem is that the trailer weighs significantly more than the trailer's GVWR, so the state won't issue tags for the trailer.

RE: Connecting 2 batteries together

Here is pianotuna's image. He is demonstrating exactly what I described above.

RE: Connecting 2 batteries together

Hook the two POSITIVE terminals together. Hook the two NEGATIVE terminals together. For best results, hook the trailer's POSITIVE cable to the POSITIVE terminal of one of the batteries, and the trailer's NEGATIVE cable to the NEGATIVE terminal of the other battery.

RE: Distance between the two RV?

Just my opinion, but enough to walk between them with all the slides deployed.

RE: AC tripping generator

The thermostat SHOULD prevent short cycling. Short cycling is GUARANTEED to really spike the amperage draw.

RE: Pink Antifreeze Stain

It won't help you now, but that is why I use paper towels to dry it up every fall when I winterize. An ounce of prevention, as they say.

RE: 30 amp camper/50 amp plug and cord

I remember a post like this a while back a 30 amp camper with a 50 amp Cord. The post was in April. JimR Actually, that case had a 50 amp camper with a 50 amp cord, BUT, the wrong sticker was placed by the camper's power inlet. The sticker that was applied said it was a 30 amp 125v camper. On further inspection, that camper had a ganged 50 amp main breaker. Here is that (12 page) thread: 30 vs 50 amp electrical issue help

RE: Are RV sewer hose supports necessary?

No, you don't need them for efficient dumping of your tanks. If your campground requires them, that is a totally different discussion.

RE: Toilet smell

Do you have an exhaust fan running anywhere in the RV while flushing the toilet? If so, it will pull air (spelled S.T.I.N.K.) through the black tank vent, through the black tank, up and out of the toilet, into the RV.

RE: Atwood helium refrigerator

I agree. The signal in the post is the phrase "we bought a new battery for the trailer." I also will bet that the battery cables were attached backward.

RE: When impatience hurts!

the C is no longer passing the semi on his left as quickly. Whether that's just a change in perspective as the c comes into range of the camera, something that I think I'm seeing but isn't reality or the semi in lane 2 accelerating trying to close out the opening so he doesn't get cut off from the right lane by the MH. Or, is trying to get past the semi in the right lane as fast as possible. I know that if I am trying to pass a vehicle and the speed differential is small, I will speed up to get on past. Then, after getting a few car lengths ahead, slow back down to my preset speed.

RE: When impatience hurts!

Usually most people have to be seriously frustrated to make those types of moves. I disagree with this statement. I have seen vehicles flying down the interstate, swerving from lane to lane, without ever being held up.

RE: Does Generator wattage size effect battery charge time?

Retirement is about 5 years away and the TT we have will be replaced with a more semi-full time bigger rig when boondocking will be more prevalent. Six years ago, we traded in our Winnebago and bought an Airstream. I had a new Progressive Dynamics converter/charger waiting in the garage before I even brought the new trailer home. It was never plugged in the first time at my house with the original converter/charger. (But it came with a Magnatek/Parallax converter/charger which is even worse than a WFCO.)

RE: Backwards buttons

Take green electrical tape and wrap it around the ground wires. Take red electrical tape and wrap it around the hot wires. Taking photos is great, as long as you can find the photos.

RE: TPMS question

I would advise to avoid the flow-through sensors. They are pretty much a PIA, as the flow rate to add air is very slow. I remove the sensors to add air because of that reason. My experience is identical to fj12ryder's. I used the flow through sensors for 10 years, but then got royally tired of it and bought the button style and threw away the flow throughs.

RE: Does Generator wattage size effect battery charge time?

It is a WFCO WF8955PEC The manual has some weird statement saying it reaches 14.4v but a multimeter will only show 13.6v WFCO converter/chargers are KNOWN to not get to 14.4v. Replace it. There are several good ones. I, personally, prefer the Progressive Dynamics PD4655V. It should be a direct drop-in replacement. Go to Better yet, call and talk to Randy.
