RE: Electric Fridge, Now That Hole in the Side..

Electric refrigerators need ventilation too, depending on condenser location.

RE: AC Portable Generator Electrical Voltage Drop/Fluctuating

So the generator will work fine until you put a heavier load on it. I still say cheap genset failing.

RE: AC Portable Generator Electrical Voltage Drop/Fluctuating

I think it’s a cheap generator not up to the task- maybe the capacitor they use for voltage regulation is getting hot and failing.

RE: AC issues,

If it’s a DuoTherm I would bet on a shorted thermostat cable, there’s really not a failure mode like that for the boards.

RE: 3 routers / 1 switch. I have questions

You might have better luck , but I have tried running my firewall and cable modem of a standard grade UPS (APC) but it doesn't work so well. Consumer grade UPS's are not continuous battery backup but just route the utility power straight through to the devices and also keep the battery charged up. If there is a power interruption the UPS quickly switches to the battery and relies on the capacitors of the PC's power supply to keep the PC alive long enough for the switchover to occur. I think the capacitors in the small devices like a router are just not sufficient to keep the router alive while the UPS switches over. I’ve run nothing but consumer grade APC UPS’s for years and never ha an issue with any equipment plugged into them, routers, switches, voip boxes, a/v system. I replace batteries every few years, and they do fail occasionally, but over all good.

RE: new thermostat install problem

I would remove the low fan wire- hook it back only if the blower stops.

RE: new thermostat install problem

I'm replacing the original RVP analog thermostat with a Honeywell. The old system had 6 wires which I believe to be as follows: Red (+12v) Blue (-12v) Yellow (cooling) White (heat) Green (high fan) Grey (low fan) Based on some interneting, I thought I had it figured out. Capped the 12v+, Yellow to Y, White to W, Green/Grey combined to G, and Blue to R/Rc. It did not work... Thermostat is calling for cooling, but AC is not coming on. Any help? :) original thermostat: https://i.imgur.com/hJC7Ra8l.jpg New Honeywell: https://i.imgur.com/WwMrHdPl.jpg Coleman uses +12 vac to energize their relays, so just disconnect and cap the blue (-12 v or ground) and hook red to R/Rc. This will provide the +12 vac to the relays.

RE: Travel Trailer antenna coax

The RG59 that Winegard uses specs out as good as most RG6. They use Belden. The extra flex can be good on an antenna that cranks up and down and rotates.

RE: Windows update before hell freezes over

I messed my wife’s computer up, installed a new ssd drive (laptop), downloaded the Ubuntu 18.04 LTS install iso, put it on a thumb drive, installed it on her computer, updated, as the installer didn’t have the latest. Synced her Firefox account, copied her wallpaper, done. Less than 90 minutes.

RE: Travel Trailer antenna coax

Stock will be RG59.

RE: Taking smaller airstream down Forest Service roads?

I put over 400k miles on one, east of the Mississippi roads, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey. Still going strong.

RE: Hitch Release Tips w Gas Strut Truck

When that happened to me, it was usually the ball hard against the front or back of the coupler, and, with a well chocked trailer, I put the truck in neutral ( if level).

RE: Electric steps for RV that did not come with them

It’s possible, I’ve done it. It was about 27 years ago, so I don’t remember the specifics, but iirc it was quite a job.

RE: A little more on the New ford trickeling out

I didn’t see one picture of the actual engine, I just saw a bunch of ‘kind of the same’ pictures.

RE: Fridge Temp Control Question

One thing to keep in mind is that is basically a Norcold- Dometic built cooling units for Norcold for a while and in the deal they marketed the Unit with the server name.
