RE: Windshield Shades

Love our MagneShade. Easy up and down. No climbing. One person can handle it. Large gusts did not remove it. Cuts a lot of sun. Still get a reasonable view. Worth the expense for us.

RE: WiFi Hot Spot App

Foxfi worked well for me in the past.

RE: Jump starting the generator

The batteries have loads that cannot be switched off which kills the batteries over time. Fully charge the batteries then remove the negative battery cables when storing. Mark and take pictures first. In 6 months the batteries should start the engine or gen w/o a issue. I'd start the gen first and let it run for a hour assuming the charger charges both banks. Also, the gen may not direct charge and trickle charge will not charge a depleted battery. With gen running it will still take up to 30 minute, with the boost/crossover switch engaged, to bring the chassis up to a state that it will start your engine.

RE: Operating on a 20amp circuit

Lonnie, You will also want to note if there are other things running on this circuit, like a freezer in the garage. Easy to over look and each item adds up.

RE: Strange house battery issue

If it were me, I'd get a 12v/120v multimeter. You can get them fairly cheap, almost anywhere. I would disconnect the pos on the batt(s) and run the converter as normal, and measure the output of the converter. Then I would mesure the charge in the batts. I'd post the results here. You will get better and more focused info/diagnosis by posting the test results.

RE: Water line burst

As others have said, buy a quality pressure regulator, not one of those cheap reducers. Big difference.

RE: Class A Fulltimer freeze concerns

We use a 200w heater with large electric extension cable, from entertainment bay and a TC-3 Cold Weather Thermo Cube Thermostatically Controlled Outlet (in the wet bay).

RE: How to winterize residential refrigerator??

We have a Samsung RF18. Run pink until it enters the ice tray. The RF18 has a button to cycle the ice maker.

RE: no hot water electric or LP

There is likely a fuse in the fuse box.

RE: Mobile hot spots

I would read the unlimited phone, text data (on a phone agreement) clauses carefully. The unlimited my apply to that phone only, and not any connected devices. Hotspots, on a phone, may cost to use or a shared connection may be throttled. Know what you can do with the entire plan.

RE: Can't get 12v power and boondocking

Last update: as I've been driving on the road, the breaker has tripped a couple more times - I thought it might have to do with turning off/on the car, but that's not it - I can't reproduce the issue. I'm sure it is just because it was a dry day, but I also got shocked by my car two or three times. Anyway, the only common factor for this issue is when I'm towing. Whoa there! Let's back up a bit. You got shocked by your car. Were you connected to the trailer. You might have a bigger issue than your breaker. Sorry for the delay - as for getting shocked: yes, I was hooked up to the trailer. I get shocked from time to time getting out of my car (yesterday, not connected to the trailer) - it's typically on dry days where static electricity has built up. I don't think it's related to being hooked up. I would have this checked. This could be caused by a reverse polarity in your shore line or improper grounding. This can escalate to electrocution.

RE: RV Antifreeze

He got two things right. Alcohol is not good on rubber but as said above, there is not enough in it to do any real harm. Been using whatever pink was on sale for decades and systems still working fine. Second thing he got right is that the pink does taste funny. Don't drink it straight, on the rocks or even with a lime twist. I flush with just fresh/tap water in the spring. Tastes fine after that.

RE: Just a thought on truck campers place here

Tomman, put down the keyboard when you’ve been drinking. It’s a bad combination!And yet OP stumbled into the actual TC Forum to make the post. :R Mod/Admin moved it here from the Class A forum.

RE: Need a Recorder???

Maybe I am not understanding. If you pay/activate the service, Dish Wally is your recorder and the external, USB harddrive is your storage. See step 2 in the link above.

RE: Household refrigerator to replace Norcold N641?

We have Samsung, Tripplite RV1250ULHW (previously RV750ULHW) and 2 Duracell 6v.. Works great but we only do 3 nights a year (round trip) dry, while driving to a location. Est. driving time is 13-14 hours a day.

RE: Quick reply please.

IF the DH does not want to, then don't. The journey is by both to enjoy.
