RE: WIFI Light Switch

Do you happen to have a link to the RF switches? rf switches like these rf remote switches amazon could work there are a lot of different ones available like another person said you may have to put the relay switch boards behind the light fixture and leave the regular light switches to work normally. the remote switches would work with the normal light switches in the off position then. or these rf remote switchesThere are 2 wires at the light fixture, ground and 12V when the light switch is ON. There is no 12V when the light switch is OFF. Leave the switch on to use the controller. You would have to put a local manual switch at the fixture to turn on the light if the controller fails

RE: WIFI Light Switch

Another problem you may have is ground is generally not carried to the switches. Most controllers, be it WiFi, BT, IR, or whatever will require both 12V and ground. They might require 3.3V or 5V. However, both 12V and ground can usually be found at the light fixture when the switch is on. You might be able to find small low side controllers and tuck them behind the light fixture on the ceiling. If you have a switch that controls numerous lights, locate the controller at the 1st light fixture to control them all.

RE: Battery over charging.

Voltage will rise as the plates become exposed to air... Current will rise but not voltage while using a properly functioning controller. The controller should hold its 13.x to 14.x set point voltage up to its current limit regardless of battery condition. The voltage will decrease once the current limit is reached. eend - Is this the same battery you said was toast or did you buy a new battery? My guess is your bad controller toasted the old battery.

RE: Where is the photos

Am I the only one seeing the irony of this thread? OP indirectly asked why this forum doesn't attract new campers and then others go into a rant on how ignorant and inconsiderate new campers are. Here's Your Sign

RE: FEMA will be purchasing RVs

There were over 100 unused FEMA trailers parked in a field outside of Houston for over a year after Harvey. Some time later many of them were being sold on Craigslist

RE: Anderson Camper Levelers

I have a bubble level app on my phone. I place it on my rear bumper. Every 0.62° off level requires 1" of board under the tires.

RE: 5th Wheel Hitch Buyer's Guide

B&W if you have a longbed, SuperGlide if you have a short bed. Not the detail you’re looking for, but at the end of your research I expect you’ll land there :)I followed this advice and realized I wasted a whole lot of money. Not all short beds need a slider and the SuperGlide can be a pain to work with.

RE: We knew it was coming...

Personal savings rates shot up during Covid due to the massive stimulus packages We didn't get any of that stimulus going around but our saving shot up because we couldn't spend any $ because everything was closed down and shelves were bare

RE: Fifth wheel mileage question

My last 6 trips or so have been traveling the exact same 350 mile route going to visit her aging mother. I average between 8 and 13 MPG a trip. The only difference is the wind. This is with a gasser however

RE: Auto leveling question

It might be a poor 12V connection somewhere causing excessive voltage drop when drawing high current. A poor connection will act like a resistor. Follow your battery cables and make sure everything is tight and clean

RE: Camping in an EV.... Always charging...

I've been lugging this FW around for 9 years to the day now. I never once considered it "Camping". We travel around hauling all the comforts of home with us. We haven't "Camped" since the kids were young, and that was quite a few years and 2 trailers ago. If "Camping" requires making a "Camp" fire, we'll never "Camp" again.

RE: Camping in an EV.... Always charging...

Lets get real here. How many people on this forum camp in a canopy? Not a motorhome, not a 5th wheel, not a truck camper or a travel trailer......but a canopy?My BIL

WOW, read the comments, or shall I say comics at the bottom of that article. Not many RV lovers in that crowd

RE: 16' Scamp and 2018 Ram 2500 diesel

There is always one or two trucks that get phenomenally better fuel mileage than the 10s or 100s of 1000s of others of the same vintage on RV or camping related boards.I honestly believe it has to do with environment and driving habits. I live below 50ft above sea level and it's as flat as glass around here. I might get above 200ft going over a highway overpass. About 90% of my driving is as close to sea level as you can get without getting wet. My driving style is I ain't in no hurry. Ford says my F150 can get 23MPG, I can get 25 hand calculated. My Taurus should get 29, I can get 33 hand calculated. Of coarse all of this is not towing. BUT, when I drive through the hill country or the higher elevations around Amarillo you can throw all that out the window. My truck gets 16-18 in the hill country and the Taurus gets 26 in the Amarillo area. Just my experience

RE: Easy startup for A.C.

The control circuit needs to switch in (relay?) a small value (LARGE power rating) resistor (probably a piece of copper wire) "in line".NTC thermistors were often used rather than a high wattage resistor.

ELI the ICE man Say that to a young EE today and they are clueless what you are taking about. That phrase must have been a 70s thing. They have an app for that though
