RE: Voltage protector 110V?

Opinion: At $14 it must be a great device. :S Sure :)... I like HW30, don't like the price. Buy quality and you only cry once.

RE: Voltage protector 110V?

In this area you definitely get what you pay for. I would spring for a EMS-HW30C or a EMS-HW50C depending on whether you have a 30 amp or 50 amp RV. It costs more, sure, but the extra protection is worth it.

RE: How screwed am I ? Boneheaded jacking mistake

Just watch out for a blinker fluid leak.

RE: Protection

It may or may not give as good protection, but, when the wind makes it flap it can abrade the outside of your RV.

RE: Honda 2200i travel

I just throw mine in the back of my pickup truck. I do use a bungee cord to be sure it stays upright. Been doing this for 6 years now with no problems.

RE: Small Propane Cylinder

The only problem experienced is that occasionally the valve sticks. Nothing that a couple of whacks with a hammer can't fix. Nothing likes to be hit. That is not a small cylinder problem. It is a cylinder problem. The small cylinder uses exactly the same valve as the 20# and 30# bottles.

RE: How do you measure the ambient temperature?

Welp must’ve touched feelers with the mod. Thanks for deleting something that was well, opinion, just like all the rest of the opinions. If I want to know how warm it is where I am at, I go outside. If I want to know how cold it is, I use my phone. If I want to know how warm it is somewhere else, I use my phone. I wondered why my answer went from the first answer on page 2 to the last answer on page 1.

RE: Small Propane Cylinder

I have two of the 5 pound cylinders. Can get them filled anywhere.

A thermometer in the shade.

RE: MGVWR and problems titling trailer

I am not sure what the "M" in your "GVWR" means Manufacturer I'd empty it and take it to another set of scales to verify dry sticker. What's your tow rig gross combined weight rating?The problem is not with the tow vehicle capacity. The problem is that the trailer weighs significantly more than the trailer's GVWR, so the state won't issue tags for the trailer.

RE: Connecting 2 batteries together

Here is pianotuna's image. He is demonstrating exactly what I described above.

RE: Connecting 2 batteries together

Hook the two POSITIVE terminals together. Hook the two NEGATIVE terminals together. For best results, hook the trailer's POSITIVE cable to the POSITIVE terminal of one of the batteries, and the trailer's NEGATIVE cable to the NEGATIVE terminal of the other battery.

RE: Distance between the two RV?

Just my opinion, but enough to walk between them with all the slides deployed.

RE: AC tripping generator

The thermostat SHOULD prevent short cycling. Short cycling is GUARANTEED to really spike the amperage draw.

RE: Pink Antifreeze Stain

It won't help you now, but that is why I use paper towels to dry it up every fall when I winterize. An ounce of prevention, as they say.

RE: 30 amp camper/50 amp plug and cord

I remember a post like this a while back a 30 amp camper with a 50 amp Cord. The post was in April. JimR Actually, that case had a 50 amp camper with a 50 amp cord, BUT, the wrong sticker was placed by the camper's power inlet. The sticker that was applied said it was a 30 amp 125v camper. On further inspection, that camper had a ganged 50 amp main breaker. Here is that (12 page) thread: 30 vs 50 amp electrical issue help

RE: Are RV sewer hose supports necessary?

No, you don't need them for efficient dumping of your tanks. If your campground requires them, that is a totally different discussion.

RE: Toilet smell

Do you have an exhaust fan running anywhere in the RV while flushing the toilet? If so, it will pull air (spelled S.T.I.N.K.) through the black tank vent, through the black tank, up and out of the toilet, into the RV.

RE: Atwood helium refrigerator

I agree. The signal in the post is the phrase "we bought a new battery for the trailer." I also will bet that the battery cables were attached backward.

RE: When impatience hurts!

the C is no longer passing the semi on his left as quickly. Whether that's just a change in perspective as the c comes into range of the camera, something that I think I'm seeing but isn't reality or the semi in lane 2 accelerating trying to close out the opening so he doesn't get cut off from the right lane by the MH. Or, is trying to get past the semi in the right lane as fast as possible. I know that if I am trying to pass a vehicle and the speed differential is small, I will speed up to get on past. Then, after getting a few car lengths ahead, slow back down to my preset speed.
