RE: I bet you wont try this. RV turn around

Not real. Hoax No not a hoax.. For the caption clearly says it is "Computer Generated" so yes it is fake. but it is not a hoax (no intent to deceive. only entertainment) It was kind of cute. but totally impossible.

RE: Wife staggered me today.

The peoblem is .. If I tried YOUR Code from last year and it did not work my first thought would be "Wrong door" and then it would work.

RE: New to RV’ing....and might not last

What you need is a pre/post delivery inspection... This is a service that is included when you buy new but often not with used RV's Not a good "Tour" takes a few hours. Two suggestions. If you have a way to make friends with someone buying a rig not unlike yours. Join them for their tour. Or contact an RV service Technician.. There are some that are "on site" service who come to you. And set it up. They can likely give you a firm price (Say 4 hours) but may give you a discount as it's all talk no work. Second. You Tube is your friend here. Just about every system on a RV has been video stored on You Tube. thousands of DIY RV repair videos. Some of 'em are rather good. OMEY (you will fine mention to him from time to time) Thougt I had a link. DO not. Did find this link: Can not make a recommendation on it however as I did not follow it.

RE: Leveling Jack issue

Clearly you have identified the problem The valve. Either the coil is part shorted (Why it is so hot and My #1 Suspect) or the valve is bad. how to test. retract all jacks this one will stay down of course. Now swap two (NOT the Dump valve but jack coils) and hit the retract button again. if the jack retracts restore the two coils to where they were and replace the bad one.

RE: Why A Macerator Toilet Versus Regular

With what I've been reading there are more cons than pros for macerator toilets, so I'm confused why so many newer coaches with bath and half have one of each? In the case of a bath and a half rig (Like mine) tis a long way from The Full bath to the place of the black tank, so gravity drop won't work. Thus they put in a macerator to pump it to the black tank a good 12 feet away. ALso the macerator unit is easier to use (push a button to flush) and there are the many threads about Toilet paper breakdown rated. Well chopped all to bits it breaks down right fast.

RE: Need 12v refer Info

The Modern 12 volt Only units fall into two categories one is a peltier cooler. These have no moving parts with the possible exception of a fan and a thermostat and can also be "Reveresed" to become a "hot box" instead of a cold box. They have fairly high amp draw for the amount of cold you get. The other is what I call a "Danfoss" type device. Danfoss is but one company making the compressors in these units. Very high efficiency compressor units. Suitable for residential or RV. Generally draw about 3-4 amps door closed. add 2-4 amps door open due to the light. I haven an Engel chest fridge/freezer 15 years old and still keeping things inside in the single digits.

RE: Horrible customer service

Poor customer service seems to be the new normal in America. Do you really want to continue doing business with someone you can't contact? More and more companies are going from Customer Service Departments. To Cuss-Some More non-service departments.

RE: Cable Maintenance for Dump valves

How to lubricate a cable.. I won't tell you how to do it. Just how to learn. Visit your local Harley Davidson (or other Brand) motorcycle Shop. They can show you and may even be able to sell you the tool needed. That easy. and trust me it is easy. but I want you to see it live.

RE: Help No power at dashboard won't start

I am guessing your converter is fried and not charging. Sadly this is something we warn and warn and warn and warn and still we get told it happens. Oh and as you spend big bucks to get things working again Consider a Progressive Industries HW-30C about 200 for the unit and about 80 for the remote at multiple retailers.

RE: norcold freezer ice build up

Do you have an icemaker.. If so turn it off to reduce icing in the freezer and use a table top ice maker.. WHY. Well when the thing fills it adds moisture vapor to the compartment as well.

RE: Leaving antifreeze in all summer

Like someone else said. WOn't hurt to leave it in Also won't hurt to blow it out with compressed air Next time you winterize blow it out with compressed air (don't put the PINK in the fresh tank) use Pink in the Drains and toilets but for the main lines blow 'em out with air DO NOT forget to drain the water pump. water pump inlet strainer and ice maker lines (To drain ice maker lines after the first blow with low point drains open cycle the ice maker manually so the valve opens. OR remove lines at solenoid and drain it that way be sure to make solenoid open and close by cycling however). Run pump dry for a short time to clear it after first blow out. (1 minute is more than enough, 30 seconds good too 3 seconds likely enough. wont hurt pump)

The UPPER Control board refers to the board that is inside the A/C. .there may be two of them in there. Which is which is obvious. Since everything in yours is controlled by 12 volts using relays. I'm guessing you have a bad relay.. Now... These are Easy to replace. if you can find someone willing to do it (I have two I need to replace in another device here when I get Round To It.

RE: Leaving tow bar connected to MH

The cons are: Weather exposure if the RV is stored outside Legs.. If it not bolted on and locked (As in with a key) it the can grow legs .

RE: need help with electrical

quick question... the trailer batteries were charging while driving.. I'm not sure how it could charge while driving, but not while plugged into 110? Does the 12 volt from the tow vehicle not go through the converter before charging the batteries? Gemerally: NO

RE: 12V wiring Aluminum Cargo Trailer conversion

IF you want 'Best results' there is a special connector to connect copper to aluminum. beyond that I have no knowledge as I've never actually seen one I'm guessing a ring terminal with an aluminum screw to the chassis (or bolt) is the order of the day but the ring terminal is crimped onto the copper and it is a SPECIAL type of terminal made for that job.

RE: Check your bolts!!

On my first towed other things happned that resulted in damage to the front clip. so when we got to the body shop some of the mounting bolts for the base plat.. Gone The installer forgot the LOCKTITE instruction. Lost a engine mount bolt so went to pull the nut off the mate to make sure I got the right size.... Took it off not with a wrench but my fingers.. Put it back with locktite. Just two of the stories I have.

RE: Charge across 2 6V batteries is 11.78. Is that right?

The 9200 is not a Fraudulent smart charger. It's a darn good one. In fact in research I've done over the last 15 years None better. Though that said. I assume occasionally one goes out the door... defective (Why they have a warranty).

RE: Coleman Mach 15

I think 15K is about the biggest but.. IF you can find one bigger. odds are it will fit. If you only have one. Many RV's are pre-wired for a 2nd

RE: Do any of the new TTs come with Surge Protectors?

Generally Trailers do not Some HIGH END motor homes MIGHT But also be aware there are two types of devices called "Surge Protocters" One is what I call a Spike supressor. I won't go into all of it but from time to time line surges can Spike the voltage eaily to a thousand or more. These "Clip" the spikes The spikes are very (like 1/60th or 1/120th of a second or less) long. But if you plug into say a 240 volt line with a 30 amp plug. No protection. or if the voltage drops to say 90 no protection The Surge Guard I have .. well it will not pass power in either of those cases and some others as well.
