RE: Built in Trickle charger on AC unit

What converter/charger is installed in your unit? Without knowing that we really can't give meaningful responses. (HINT:If it is a Parallax/Magnatek unit, do NOT leave it plugged in all of the time, it will boil batteries dry and kill them. Some other brands are perfectly fine to leave plugged in 24/7/365, my Progressive Dynamics for example. My trailer came with a Parallax/Magnatek, but I replaced it within 24 hours of trailer delivery. I actually had the replacement converter/charger here before I got the trailer here.) Don’t know the brand, owner’s manual doesn’t specify, will try to go through other paperwork to see if I can find out Look either on, or inside, the door that covers your fuse box/breaker panel. Usually the manufacturer is listed there.

RE: Charging Camper/Coach Battery with Running Lights Lead from Flat-4

@Homeskillet-Can you please resize your picture to no more than 480 high? As it is now we are forced to scroll side to side to read the posts in this thread. If you edit your post and add height=480 to the link for the picture it should resize. If you do a quote on this post you can see where I added a height = 200 on mine. Thanks https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/71e5lkIsFOL._SL1500_.jpg height=200 I use width=640 on mine. (Or whatever value I am shooting for, sometimes 320.) Same result. But, you added spaces within your text "height = 200", when it must be "height=200". It is actually not the height that is causing the problem, it is the width, that is why I use the "width=???" instead.

RE: Insurance Denying Claims

I changed an old van by myself to make it like a motorhome as it was very expensive to buy the complete range of products so I used ***Link Removed***Free Shipping codes so this helped me so much now I am parked near the university of Orlando, You guys are always welcome to be my guest. Can you say "masked advertisement post"? This is why new posters can't post links. I tried to notify the moderators, but a system error wouldn't let me.

RE: Invalid VIN (Vehicle Identification Number)

The only correct answer is to get the vehicle VIN from the frame of the vehicle. Everything else is prone to error. On trailers that can be an issue. Some companies put it next to the hitch or just back from it.. Some hide it. It being difficult, or "an issue," doesn't make it, not, the only correct answer. Literally every other source involved someone else transcribing the VIN. Errors can occur.

RE: WDH Questions

What does your tow vehicle owner's manual say? My Ford says to measure the front fender height from the pavement before attaching the trailer. Measure it again after raising the tongue jack. Use a WDH to put 50% of the difference back on the front end.

RE: Which is the best value - Airstream or Avion

I voted with my pocketbook when I bought an Airstream.

RE: Insurance Denying Claims

What happened to the OP? He has a grand total of 1 post to his name. My guess is looking for another forum to validate his desires.

RE: TPMS

My TST TPMS came preset to 158 degrees F, and I left it there. It did alarm for temperature once. I had a brake drum dragging and it saved me from an RV fire. I had Ford replace the brakes on that tire and have had no further alarms. I figure that driving 65mph on a 100 degree day, the tires get to 110 or so. That means less than 50 degrees more to alarm.

RE: frsh water tank

The PEX, itself, can take the pressure. It is the fittings connecting the PEX together that poses the risk from high pressure.

RE: Which side should rough wiring for roof ac be on?

Just leave enough wire up there to reach either end. Cut it off if it is too long when you install the A/C.

RE: Honda eu2000i separate on/off switch

If you drain or run dry there is no need to pull the starter rope repeatedly upon next use. Simply turn on the run switch and walk away for a few minutes and the carburetor will gravity fill. Now you're back to 1-2 pulls. This particular recommendation is worth the price of admission to this forum.

RE: Pumping out of a water jug

I have a pair of plain old collapsible 5 gallon water jugs, with no hoses. I bought a water pump, just like the one in my RV, and put two hose connectors on it. I put a 6' water hose on the inlet side and just put that down into the jug. Works like a champ. And, I have a spare water pump in case the one in my trailer goes belly up.

RE: Honda eu2000i separate on/off switch

Not shutting off the switch, but turning off the fuel supply lets the engine suck the fuel out of the carb. On my 2000, I unplugged the spark disconnect from the Honda shutoff knob so it would continue to run till the fuel shutoff part killed it, then I installed a separate shutoff switch in case I ever needed to shut it down RIGHT NOW for some reason. I never toggle the shutoff switch, it is just there for emergencies, and my carb always gets sucked dry.

RE: Propane Bleeder Valve

How many years since it was certified? If somewhat close to the 12 years mandatory I would just have it updated and stamped. The mounted tanks on a motor home do not get Re-certs Luggables do Are “ALL MOTORHOMES “ equipped with fixed tanks? If they are removable I stand by what I said. Yes. All motorhomes have permanently mounted tanks. To be accurate, you need to state 99 44/100 of motorhomes have ASME tanks. Back in the 60's and 70's and very early 80's they had DOT cylinders on some motorhomes. Some of those are still on the road. Doug Cummins12V98 was being ridiculous, so I gave him an answer in kind.

RE: 6 gal electric hot water heater upgrade

Get a dual propane/electric WH, then don't turn on the propane burner.

RE: Cash Vs. Finance

To repeat myself: Do what you are comfortable doing. I pray that you don't learn a hard lesson. The voice of caution is never welcome when things are going well. Good luck.

RE: Cash Vs. Finance

For all of those who think it is a good idea to carry debt that you don't need to carry, I hope you never live through a 5+ year recession. I have. I won't carry debt unless it is necessary. As far as selling your "collateral," good luck with that when the recession hits and no one has any money. As far as withdrawing your savings from your investments when the recession hits, good luck with that when your savings are suddenly 50% of what they were. Do what you are comfortable doing. I pray that you don't learn a hard lesson.
