RE: How often to disconnect from shore power

Battery disconnect or pull the batts.

RE: DP or Gas? DW vs DH

Disclaimer: No gasser will be as quiet as a DP. Having said that, Our current, 13 Tiffin Open Road 36LA, is much quieter than our previous V10. Tiffin & Newmar provide much better heat and sound dampening at build. Unless at high RPM, on a steep climb, DW and I have a normal conversation. The ride is very good, out of the factory. It could be better but that takes some upgrades we do not wish to pay for. Handling is great. Did add a true center.

RE: Trion V10

The biggest complaints are : • Loud, because it has to use lower gear/higher RPM to climb hills • Not the best fuel economy. This depends on the base insulation. On our Allegro 36LA, the RPMs are the issue. At lower RPMs, we have no issues with talking in normal voice. With higher RPMs, like climbing a steep inclines, the noise level rises beyond normal conversation. Our rig has insulation (Dynamat style) installed by mfgr, which makes a world of difference.

RE: Trion V10

V10 is a very reliable beast. Modern ones even have power management that protects the engine from over rev and over heat and more. I have owned 2 in 36-37 foot MHs and would buy another.

RE: no high beam headlights

Had a similar problem a few years back. Brights but no dims. Turned out to be the wire harness in the column.

RE: RV Refrigerator in cold weather

In conjunction with a 200W heater, we use a TC-3 to turn on the heater at 35 and off at 45.

RE: Portable Satellite Cable Storage..ideas??

For several years now I have been using the Winegard Carryout antenna for Directv... I have attached 2 (50 ft) RG-6 cables along with the power cord to it.. I the past I have just coiled up the wires in about a 3 ft circle when storing them and antenna but am looking for a better / easier / smaller way to do it.. Question.. Will wrapping RG-6 around a extension cord reel (approx 8 inch circle) damage the RG-6? Just looking for a smaller and more neat way to store the wires as hooking and unhooking them from the antenna everytime is a PIA.. No. It will not damage the cable. You will be OK, as long as you do not kink (bend) and unkink the cable.

RE: Passenger side slide window seals

Did you look to see if you lost any weep hole covers?

RE: What am I doing wrong ?

Did you check the switch settings to see how many satellites it could see? Sat channels are only available if you can connect to the satellite it is broadcast on. Are you using a home Dish service or Dish Outdoors? Dish outdoors uses spot beams for locals based on your physical location. If you move out of area a to area b, and did not change your service location, you will not receive any locals in area b, until you update your location. In reverse, if you change your location to area b and return to area a, you will not receive locals until you update your service location.

RE: Question on charging batteries with Gen

Here is what we did. As someone recommended, if you can, test timing and draw in your driveway. Look at the RR data plate. Our Samsung RF18 sips at 3 amps. Some do sip a little more. Our MH had 2 GC2s at 230ah and a Tripp Lite rv1250ulhw inverter/charger. With nothing running but the RR (and parasitics), we last 10-12 hours, with outside of 75 degrees, in the sun. Fridge stays 34 and freezer at -2. Our last off grid was only 4 nights. We had to run the Onan 7K 2 hours a.m. and 2 hours p.m. to bring batts back up We recently changed to 2 Battleborn, 100A batts. Have not tested, yet. What RR is in the rig? How many and what batts do you have?

RE: SSD Storage

Look in CONTROL PANEL/ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS/COMPUTER MANAGEMENT. On the next window, under STORAGE click on disk management. The middle column will show all the drives on the computer. Assuming you can see the drive, sometimes drive letter administration doesn't work correctly and your SSD might want to use drive F (not H) but it is already in use. You can assign a new letter to the SSD. When I do this I usually use letters near the end so it doesn't get overwritten. Obviously if it is not showing there are other problems. ^^^^^ This. Also note in disk management that some new drives need to be 'Initialized' and 'formatted', before OS will recognize.

RE: clicking - water heater

What is the state of your house batteries? If your WH turns off when the converter is off, it may be because it is not getting enough power from 12v system.

RE: Only thing getting power is the 220V Appliance!?

Wait! Before you go buying stuff off of others recommendations, I think something is missing? Is you camper a 30 amp rig? Is it a trailer or MH? What make and model? That is what I think you are saying. Take a pic of the 120 volt circuit breakers and post them. Take a pic of your Auto Transfer switch, if you have one and post it here. Photo Posting App page.
