RE: Well water

We are at a permanent site that we love but the water source is well water and the sulfur smell is very strong. We have a filter but it doesn’t really help. We never drink the water anyway but would like suggestions on what to do about the smell. Use an activated carbon filter to eliminate the H2S smell.

RE: No 12v input from battery, 2004 Terry Trailer

Example: DC Circuit Breaker https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/U6gAAOSwXI1cJYAD/s-l300.jpg height=400 width=400 One should note that the breaker shown in photo IS a "self reseting" or "auto reseting" breaker (IE no reset button to push) and is typical breaker used by RV manufacturers. HOWEVER, in order to get this breaker to auto reset, one MUST REMOVE BOTH POWER SOURCES (IE converter must be powered down AND the battery source must be disconnected from the circuit). Once all power has been removed from the circuit then and only then will the breaker reset. Do that first before throwing parts at this. Some misinformation above here. What is the black button for in the image if it is an auto reset breaker? Auto reset breakers are automatic reset, no need to power down anything.

RE: No 12v input from battery, 2004 Terry Trailer

Except ----- Fuse will be on POS cable On the a-frame and will be a small 2 stud box...reset is typically on side of the DC Circuit Breaker Example: DC Circuit Breaker https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/U6gAAOSwXI1cJYAD/s-l300.jpg height=400 width=400 My circuit breaker is on the negative cable of the battery.

RE: No 12v input from battery, 2004 Terry Trailer

2oldman: The two 6v were in series, but one was inadvertently reversed. I assume that created a reverse polarity situation. Sorry, I don't know how to post a diagram. carringb: Wiring diagram shows a 40 amp fuse between the battery and converter but I can't find it. Believe me, I have looked and looked... Old-Biscuit: I agree. But, cant find anything like that. No 30 amp fuses on the DC Dist Fuse Panel; just 15s and 20s. I need to find the in-line fuse/breaker somehow. Thanks for all your comments and insights. Follow the battery cable (likely the negative) from the battery to where it goes under the trailer look for small (approx 1" x 1.5") circuit breaker (box). Should be 2-3 ft from the battery, it may or may not have a reset button.

RE: Water Pump and Battery Question

The reason for the louder pump is the hot water system is somehow restricted compared to the cold water causing the pump to work harder. That draws more amps causing the lights to flicker because of the weak battery.

RE: Replacement Fridge Bigger than the Door.

Boon, OP said...get new fridge in. “It seems, though, the camper door is too small to get a new fridge through it.” Oh no, reading comprehension 101.:S

RE: Replacement Fridge Bigger than the Door.

Remove fridge from the enclosure then remove doors from front, remove cooling unit from the back.

RE: Removing pine pitch

Turpentine Have use it for years on painted surfaces and awning. Works like a charm and does not hurt painted surfaces, awning fabric or rubber membrane roofs.

RE: Just cannot fix stupid....repeat...over and over....

Hey maskdebaters - Cut it out. If you want to argue about masks, go join a Mask forum. Ban the people from the forum that keep bring it up. Problem solved.

RE: OK what you got ?

Don't think you will find a unit with a slide and two seating areas with those specs. My 23 foot Surveyor is 4000 lbs dry with no slide and one seating area, a small kitchen table with a bench seat on either side.

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

Anti maskers :( https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/anti-masking-group-tied-to-anti-vaccination-covid-19-1.5661790?fbclid=IwAR2bxB1zuCCQKeAP_7d_7DxmwbYVAO11Md7FYOiEnorYkMO3vPBMml7qpOY It is sad to see the stupidity of some of our fellow Canadians. I guess they don't need to worry about the virus affecting their brain seeing as they are already brain dead.

RE: Eu2000i muffler cleaning ideas?

Great... send me your manual so that I can read it why not just use google to get the manual there is also a service manual near the bottom of the search honda google manual search It's amazing how so many electrons are wasted talking about a problem and how so few are used to simply look up the manual. :S Not everyone realizes that manuals can be found on the net. :S

RE: Sanitizing water system

So if you mix a tablespoon of bleach into a quart of water, then pour this into your fresh water tank fill (or the hose if you can not pour it in directly), then fill the water tank, you will have plenty of bleach in the tank. That might do for chlorinating water for drinking, but not even close for sanitizing the fresh water tank and water lines. You need 1/4 cup (regular household bleach) for every 16 gallons of water.

RE: Sanitizing water system

Sanitize once a year (beginning of camping season) and I run the solution in the water heater and all water lines (hot and cold).

RE: Ignore the rules...get the fines.

Take the boat. I agree, impound the boat or RV (whichever the case) for 30 days. Then the guilty party has to make arrangements to have it returned to them after 30 days plus impound charges.

RE: US/Canada border still closed.

When we see news stories of places in the US where they actually have signs up saying that you CANNOT enter wearing a mask, makes me think that it will be a while before the border is opened! Wow, that is absolute stupidity denying enter if wearing a mask. I wonder if those store owners were born brain dead. Ummm, waste three minutes of your life and watch Fox News. Your question will be answered. Thanks, just checked it out. It is hard to believe there are people out there that are so far out of touch with reality.

RE: Batteries

Example My battery bank consists of 2 volt cells 12 in series for 24 volts. But at 1625 amp hours. The amp hour rating of each battery. But this string is paralleled with an identical 2nd string For 3200 amp hours at 24 volts. Wow, that is quite the battery bank. How many watts of solar do you have?

RE: Batteries

I have 4 6 volt Duracell batteries and trying to figure out the amp hour rating. The specs are 20 amp hour rate 215 5 amp hour rate 157 6 amp hour rate 156 Minutes at 25 amps 395 Minutes at 75 amps 105 Most batteries I read about state they are 100 amp hour batteries. What are mine? I’m trying to put together a solar system and need to know the size of my battery bank. Thanks for any help If we put all the confusion aside you have a 430 AH battery bank with your four 6V batteries.
