RE: Dometic AC

Also, if I remove the freeze sensor from the grill it will start right up. Any ideas.Interesting. When it fails to start you mean you get nothing? No hum, no clicks? Like totally no power? I would start thinking it is the sensor or more likely the control board the sensor and thermostat connect to. Fairly easy to replace.

RE: Why do I keep blowing out tires on my truck?

I think I know why we haven't heard from the OP. Most likely the online bickering back and forth. :)I am thinking OP is down at the Goodyear store getting real tires put on ;)

RE: Talk about voltage drop (12v)

#14 and 300 watts... is that the fuse? Or is that by design so the inverter will drop out before the fire ensues?

RE: Can I rent your RV?

Ask them if something happens and not even their fault is $6,000+ to fix are they going to pay? Because you do not have that kind of insurance.

RE: On street parking problems Portland

Not just a Portland issue. The homeless RV is up and down the entire west coast. Soon to be nationwide if your area is not yet impacted. Fair weather does attract more as it makes living this life easier. I mostly feel bad for the kids growing up in this difficult situation.

RE: Getting Confused on what can I tow

I recommend you keep the trailer GVWR under the tow rating... whatever that turns out to be. 8700 seems like a lot.

RE: Has anyone noticed

Why is it assumed that everyone in a big rig is living above their means? In my personal experiences, both owning big rigs and owning an RV park I have found the opposite to be the case. Not everyone is teetering on bankruptcy.+1 Never underestimate a person's resources at the high end.

RE: Power Sag/Current Issues at Seasonal Site

Yes that park was built before A/C was even used let alone common. 100 volts is too low, 20 amp service is inadequate for the Autoformer. I would be looking at that battery charger, large battery and 3000w inverter. I would probably be going 24 volt lithium battery and GoPower inverter but that is your call. Since you have 20a power I would skip the solar.

RE: Parasitic current draw on tow vehicle

Check the 10a fuse in the meter.The VOM still reads voltage. Would that still be possible with a blown fuse?Yes

RE: Battery Replacement?

I would continue to run them unless you might be in a situation of difficult conditions and all alone. And that is fairly rare. Costco/Sam's is fine for low price. For superior performance I recommend Odyssey AGM. https://www.odysseybattery.com

RE: Why do I keep blowing out tires on my truck?

Tread separation all three times. I check tire pressure and adjust if needed before every trip. I set them to the max rated at 80 PSI.Assuming your truck would indicate low pressure from a road hazard before the tire overheated and lost the tread..... the tire is defective. I recommend switching to top line Goodyear Wrangler® All-Terrain Adventure With Kevlar® https://www.goodyear.com/en-US/tires/wrangler-all-terrain-adventure

RE: EV's I know there are folks better versed than me in here

Be happy for the EV crowd.... they do not take a space at your fuel station nor bid the price of your vehicle fuel up any higher. Win, win right?

RE: EV's I know there are folks better versed than me in here

My F150 goes 175 maybe 200 miles on a tank. A little more range would be nice at times but 600 miles as the base minimum to have a practical tow vehicle is a bit absurd. Why even bother looking at EV threads? Just do your thing and get on with it.

RE: EV's I know there are folks better versed than me in here

Dang physics. Energy density of lithium ion battery 0.37 to 0.95 MJ/kg Energy density of gasoline 44.0 MJ/kgDoes that include the air you burn from the atmosphere?

RE: 8 people killed in Utah sand storm

I always enjoy going past a semi truck that has the hazards on and then the truck pulls out in front of me. Effectively no turn signals is a hazard. Please do not lane change until the hazard has been eliminated.

RE: To buy a generator or not...

Good plan. Sell the Onan and pocket the savings from not buying the Honda 2200 and see where you are at.That will really make the AC run well next week when he needs it....OP has hookups for part of the trip, weather is looking cooler, or run the generator that he has or roll out early. Why is this a big deal? OP practically never uses the generator for multiple reasons. The sooner it is gone (after this trip) the better. Although if really interested I think a makeshift battery pack and inverter could be brought along and used with just a week lead time. Then give a proper install upon return.

RE: Power Sag/Current Issues at Seasonal Site

I haven't had my meter on it yet but you can tell by the sounds of the fans or AC that either the voltage droops badly or the run on the 12 wire from the looks of it is so long current isn't being delivered as fast as its demanded. Depending on neighboring usage fans will start slow and ramp up.Is that #12 wire feeding what service? 20, 30, 50 amps? Is the RV 30 amps? Yes put a voltmeter on the supply before you plug in and again with a few items running. Are you willing to go without A/C?

RE: RV Hot Skin (Exterior electrification)

But obviously you have never dealt with old homes or apartments in Cities..You may have underestimated me.
