RE: Best AGM batteries

Nothing against Li batteries, BUT (indeed large BUT) to do them properly, one has to add in the cost of a proper Li battery charger, make changes to wiring so the alternator does not damage them, be aware of their temperature range etc. If an RV is set up for Li batteries from the factory, they make a lot more sense to me. BTW, have used Lifeline batteries in our sailboats and motorhomes.

RE: State of charge

If AT REST, pretty accurate. If being discharged/charged, NOT accurate indicator.

RE: Running norcild 1200 off the alternator

Have also seen bad battery isolators diagnosed as bad alternators. Same for broken "sense wire" Bottom line is diagnose the root cause!

RE: Samsung RF18 Fridge

Likely it is on a unique breaker in the RV 120 VAC breaker box. Just turn off the breaker.

RE: High humidity

Not sure what humidity has to do with it. Actually, quite a lot. RV roof air filters aren't very efficient at removing dirt. In humid weather, the evaporator coils stay pretty wet. Dirt plus water plus warm temperatures= mold, mildew, etc growth. Again, if worse when first starting the A/C, that is the likely cause. In New Mexico, not an issue.

RE: High humidity

If it is that "wet dog" small when starting the roof A/C, you need to clean your EVAPORATOR. Get an evaporator cleaner at any box or HVAC supply store. Cleaning is done from the roof after removing the A/C cover and then the evaporator cover. Be sure to block the opening to the coach interior. You will be SHOCKED at what you find-- dirt, mold, mildew!

RE: Cannot start engine

Welcome. Please "edit" your post to tell us what year (not 2095) and what engine you have. Does the Allison shift pad illuminate when the key is turned on?

RE: 30amp / 50amp question

Should be able to draw 30 amps any combination of loads. Concur, IF the adapter connects both hot legs of he 50A plug to the one hot leg of the 30A plug. 100% of the 30 male to 50 amp adapters I am aware of DO connect the single hot on the 30 amp end to BOTH hots on the 50 amp end.

RE: High end gasser or entry level DP

What this thread reinforces is that there is no IDEAL coach for everyone. Choose what meets YOUR needs, not what others have chosen to meet theirs. No different than choosing a home, a car or most other things. Agree, getting input on how others have made the best decision for THEM can certainly help-- again the same for choosing a car, etc.

RE: inverter/charger

get a voltmeter Actually, on a 15 year old motorhome where a previous owner MAY have added "something" to charge the chassis batteries (several good options), checking with a digital voltmeter IS the best way to determine if shore power/generator does charge the chassis batteries.

RE: Inverter & Electrical Question

Do you really mean inverter, or converter? Or even an inverter/charger! Leaving it plugged in 24/7/365 is fine, as long as it is properly programmed (again ASSUMING it is a programmable inverter/charger).

RE: Generator radiator removal

What was her recommendation?

RE: Any one flat tow a BMW?

As far as I know, the primary issue will be whether the transmission is lubricated adequately from just the OUTPUT shaft or whether it needs the INPUT shaft turning to properly lubricate the transmission. A good BMW tech who overhauls the manual transmissions should be able to give you guidance.

RE: Generator radiator removal

Don't know with the COVID 19 about their hours/who is on-duty, but: Call Power Tech at 800 760 0027. Go to tech extension 3. Speak with Jeff. Plan B, speak with another Power Tech tech.

RE: Any one flat tow a BMW?

Well, a mini is built by BMW and they are towable 4 down. Not sure if the automatics are. And the electric minis are not. Not sure it is reasonable to equate a FWD to a RWD in terms of towability. Very different mechanically.

RE: Converter, is it working

If you have any RV and don't have "any fancy equipment"= digital voltmeter, BUY ONE. They start at under $20 and are indispensable for troubleshooting your electrical system.

RE: Copper gas line touching aluminum frame problem

Absolutely, you can get galvanic reaction/corrosion between aluminum and copper. And, isolating them with any non-conductive material prevents it.

RE: Down hill grade

Really doesn't matter HOW you get to the correct gear to hold your speed in equilibrium. This can vary by make, model and year of chassis/vehicle. The important this in that you DO!
