RE: GFI electrical question

This has been an enlightening dissertation on how a gif circuit works and I appreciate all the replies but I still don't see why 50 amps coming from a post or generators and coming thru the same plug in the side of the rv should affect the bathroom gfi outlet has two total different actions. Both sources travel thru the same wiring paths so why does the gif outlet interpret them differently?

RE: GFI electrical question

How would I ground to the shore power? I would think the 4 prong 50 amp cord would ground the unit??

RE: GFI electrical question

I understand the not resetting unless powered and it was. Also does this on several different campgrounds. The comment on inverter was good but you would think it would do it on both generator and shore power. Not just the one. Thanks for relies

GFI electrical question

I acquired a 2018 cruiser aire 28fd in October. Using it here in AZ this winter, I noticed that while using 50 amp generator power the bathroom gfi outlet which controls a couple more in kitchen area works great. When I switch to 50 amp shore power supplied thru a surge protector, this gfi outlet trips and cannot be reset. Taking the surge protector out of the system makes no difference. I installed a new 20 amp GFI outlet with same results. Since the power comes into the 5th wheel thru the same system I am stumped. Any thoughts or advice?

RE: Generators for 5er

Thanks for all your inputs. I finally had a full length shelf on the rear and had it welded to frame and beefed up the hitch also welded to frame. I then mounted 2 onan 4500i inverter generators hooked to gather with the onan supplied wire harness. This supplies 50 amps. Both have remote controls. When ac is not needed I hook the original supplied cord to one generator for 30 amps which is totally adequate for power without the air. Fuel (gasoline) consumption has been good using 5 gallons for 8 day dry camp in AZ last week with no air. Plenty of tv during high winds at fireworks show. Happy so far. $1295/generator and $200 welding.

RE: Additional fuel carrying capacity on pickup

Valhalla. I think you are correct on your v10 with 26gal. Diesel has a Def tank that the v 10 does not

F350 superduty lariat diesel with 6 foot bed. The def tank takes the space of the 37 gal tank on gas models

Additional fuel carrying capacity on pickup

I have motorhomed for years with 100 gal diesel tank. Now have 5er with Ford F-350 diesel with 20 gal tank. Miss the old duel tanks on fords of yesteryear. What have you all done to get more than 200 miles between stops? 5 gal cans in bed? Messy. Looking at 50-75 gal transfer tank in pick up bed but can’t find one short enough that tonneau cover will cover. Any ideas?

RE: Fresh water tank drain too slow

This has the cold weather package which stops all access to the tanks. Also there is no gravity fill just a hose connection. Thanks for ideas. Best may be run thru get. 60gal tank

Fresh water tank drain too slow

I have a 2018 cruiser aire. It has a 1/2 inch plex pipe out the bottom to drain fresh water tank. It takes several hours to drain the tank. Would like to sanitize my water system but drains so slow. My motorhome would dump 100 gals in 3 minutes but had much larger slide vale as a dump. Am I doing something wrong to have to wait several hours to drain??

Generators for 5er

After 35 years in motorhomes with on board diesel generators, we are downsizing to a 32 foot fiver. Have a ton diesel to pull so that should not be an issue. Issue will be generating enough juice to power both airs and a couple of frig wine cooler.. want something quiet since we dry camp some.. is a generator mounted on a rear rack or one carried in pick up bed better? Is a single 7000 Honda better than 2 smaller generators hooked together to provide adequate power better? I would theft maybe issue on rear rack mounting. Ant advice from experience would be appreciated. I fear the move won't be pain free but to look on it as a challenge. Thanks
