RE: HULU

One way is to Use an "On The Go" cable for your phone that supports mobile VIDEO CONNECTION to HDMI for the tv ANOTHER is to use a device like the firestick or ROKU, ATTACHED TO T.V. HDMI install on your phone, the APP for the streaming device that you choose each video streaming device has its OWN App some phones come with a casting/MIRROR App already installed, in many cases these Apps work only with WiFi network enabled Smart TVs, or OTG cable

RE: Disconnect load before stopping generator?

Only thing I can think of Is that there was a temperature control connection for the AGS right that says we need the a/C start the genny Doesn't that same control keep the genny running until a low temp setting has been reached ? And maybe even for a specific time duration Which means the a/C would either be off, or at a minimum blower load, Not running the compressor, Maybe somebody here can give us an answer

RE: Disconnect load before stopping generator?

The idea that load must be removed prior to starting/stopping a generator seems to fly in the face of AGS systems used to keep an RV cool (for pets, for example) while the owner is not there. NO..it doesn't ... think about it the ATS in the RV does not connect the RV to generator until after the the generator has started running, there is NO load on the RV generator until the ATS closes, then the A/C can come on

RE: UPDATE - F53 external fuel pump install FINISHED

that walbro fuel pump is for INSIDE the fuel tank The Walbro TU205 OE Replacement Fuel Pump Kit. This kit is rated to operate at 12 volts and has a minimum flow of 124 liters per hour against a normal operating pressure of 45 psi. This fuel pump is typically located In-Tank. nice pump but i did not want to drop the tank, that is the whole idea of this thread, how to stay running with an external fuel pump install while NOT cutting any OEM fuel lines

RE: UPDATE - F53 external fuel pump install FINISHED

Reviews on Amazon are not very good. Also, be careful. If your chassis has "returnless" fuel, the fuel pump control module will cause the pump to run hot. its been many years since i have seen a factory production gasoline vehicle that was 'returnless', i think my 92 pace arrow 454 even had a return line i know i saw a line on this one, that looked to be a return line its all part of the fuel economy and smog regulations

RE: 1997 Hurricane Thor Motorhome

Welcome The first question Is what chassis is it built ON Is it Gas or diesel Gas Ford with 460" motor Or Chevy 454 on P30 work horse chassis You lost power steering and brakes Sounds line you lost power to the booster pump Runs on 12v, possibly located right under the drivers feet, under side of floor outside, or nearby under the front hatch No blown hoses, no hydraulic or power steering fluid leaking all over?

RE: Motor homes and earth quakes.

Non essential traffic in the affected area, that might be a problem It's in the middle of the Mojave desert, one reporter said the middle of no where The quake epicenter is on a military base, weapons test range in that desert It's over 100 miles from L.A. And nearly that far from any other metro area

RE: Motor homes and earth quakes.

True story I rode out the 94 Northridge quake, in Northridge in a 23 ft class A , I bounced a lot, moved down the drive way of the auto shop where I was parked, but was not harmed, no damage to RV, turned out I was the only one for blocks around that had working utilities, being self contained and spent the day handing out cups of coffee

RE: Decisions

Think about something. If you can;t maintain a 5 how are you going to maintain a Class C. No disrespect intended. Maybe it about driving and towing, hitching up and setup With a class C, it's more simple, less to do, and she can do some of the driving

RE: 93 pace arrow

there is possibly a switch someplace to choose how it will be powered also some 30amp RV's with (2) A/C units, only one is connected to shore power 30 amp = 3600watts, 6000w generator has more power, than 30a shore power by the way don't name every topic/question 93 pace arrow members won't know which one is which pick subject titles appropriate to the problem

RE: Running Air Conditioner Via Inverter while Towing/Driving

Isn't that 400 ampHr of 48v, which is equal to 1600 ampHrs of 12v A/C using 1200w the 800w of solar is Not going to keep up with energy use 1/3 of the needed energy will come from the batteries, but You have a surplus of battery power The OP does not
