RE: Hwy 95 though Idaho November

Two steep down grades. One just north of Lewiston, one north of White Bird. This route will send you through the slide area.

RE: After 25 years the water heater - UPDATE page 5

Thanks for the great update! What was the name of the place you got your parts? That is exceptional service and needs to be rewarded by spreading the good word!

RE: Rv sewer hose won’t fit

Do you have one that fits? What color is the pipe on the rig? Years back there was odd white pipe system that took special connectors. Make, year and model of your rig?

RE: Is there a brass replacement for the Camco drain valve?

You should not use a valve! The Atwood nylon plug is the one you should use or the Camco replacement. It is designed to be hollowed out to help prevent tank damage in the event of freezing. Using a socket and extension makes it very easy to remove to drain tank. Plug should be nylon and not plastic.

RE: Tow Bar Age

Blue Ox instructions use to have procedure for cleaning, lubing and servicing tow bars. Look at their website and didn't find true support page. When servicing use brake clean to remove dirt and old lube material. Aluminum bars need to be inspected for cracked welds. This may help! Servicing

RE: Hwy 95 though Idaho November

Paulj: Good point about northern end of OPs planned route.

RE: Hwy 95 though Idaho November

Slide is up by Riggins, ID. OP plans on going south from I-84 the way I understand it. Slide is north of I-84 like 100 miles.

RE: Tow Bar Age

My Roadmaster Stowmaster is nearly 20 years old. Roadmaster serviced it and then rebuilt it. They charged $100 for complete rebuild. Some Blue ox units are fairly easy to service. Finding parts maybe issue. Many show on Amazon.

RE: sat dish

I would go with a portable automatic dish. Do you have satellite service at your home? If so you could use that receiver. Whether you get Dish or Direct TV is up to you.

RE: DC no power Class C

Near the battery there should be a fuse or circuit breaker. If you have a battery control center it could be there. Follow the positive cable and you should find it.

OPs portion is south of damaged area.

RE: How is Hey 22 through the Ochoco mountain pass in Oregon?

It is more direct, follows canyon. US 20 dips south somewhat and is vey wide open. You had mentioned Ochoco National Forest which is on US26

RE: Pulling more than 50 amps ?

Yes, a rig could draw more then 50 amps if you combine the two legs. If the rig actual draws more then fifty the rig's 50 amp main should trip. The rig electrician is referring to could be wired incorrectly. Design of the rig should be done in such a manner as to prevent this from happening.

RE: How is Hey 22 through the Ochoco mountain pass in Oregon?

I would use US 26!

RE: Hwy 95 though Idaho November

Good two lane highway. November can be hit and miss on weather. Watch weather reports for your travel time. We cut off just into Idaho near Fruitland and stay away from Boise area. Watch your fuel gauge after before leaving Marsing area southbound.

RE: Pulling more than 50 amps ?

Not sure where you are coming up with amperage for shore power cord. Cord amperage is covered by NEC article 400. Ampacity is Art 400.5(A). #6 is rated for only 45 amps. #8 is rated for 35 amps. NEC allows you to go up to the next standard breaker which is 50 amp.

RE: How is Hey 22 through the Ochoco mountain pass in Oregon?

Are you talking US 26 through Ochoco National Forest? That is pretty easy. I am thinking you are coming US 26 to Redmond, then OR 126 to US 2o then OR 22. They are all good highways. minor hills but nothing like I-84. Have a good trip!

RE: Pulling more than 50 amps ?

Yes, you must have a tied breaker because the feed for a 50 amp is 120/240 volts. It is a multi wire feeder/branch circuit.

RE: Pulling more than 50 amps ?

If the loads were perfectly balanced and wired as 120/240, there would be 0 amperage on the neutral. If the receptacle was wired with the same 120 volt leg on both, there would be 100 amps on the neutral.

RE: Pulling more than 50 amps ?

Rig could potentially draw 100 amps over both legs. The rig should be wired to put less then 50 amps on each leg. The system is design with load calculations done at 120/240 volts. Old campgrounds in some cases do not have a properly wired 120/249 volt system. They modified a 120 volt system by connecting both terminals to the same leg. This can overload and can cause damage to the neutral conductor in the shore power cord assembly. The 50 amp 120/240 circuit breaker could trip if voltage drops increasing amperage. Calculations followed by true amperage readings is the only way to know for sure. Some larger rigs have power center that can tell what amperage is being drawn.
