RE: Off grid for first time, need some guidance !

I wouldn't think your GRP 24 wet cell battery would last the night if you use a furnace, watch TV, etc. it is not really a 'deep discharge' type battery if it has a cranking specification..... that is a dual purpose starting battery, at least. A true deep discharge RV batttery will not have auto connection posts sticking up nor will it have a cranking amp specification. A deep discharge battery will measure its capacity in Amp Hours..... just my opinion. Your battery may well work for your needs if they are as minimal as you described....

RE: Toilet Tissue...

I would not suggest using just any TP in an RV. Biggest problem with the 'plush' type TP is that is stays wadded in a ball and easily gets lodged in the dump valve while dumping, preventing closure all the way. Trying to force closure of the valve only pushes it further into the valve blade slot. I would surmise any single ply TP is most safe.... and be sure to use plenty of water in every flush.

RE: Highway speeds - Keep your distance!

I wonder about another phemo...phenoma... situation that I experience on lonely western roads.. You are cruising along all by yourself at whatever speed... and in the mirrors another vehicle appears... It catches you after a few km/miles... And then settles in 1 point 5 seconds off your stern and drives there ... Why? My guess - as I sometimes do - he is following you at night because you provide a nice buffer in case some obstruction is in the road ahead...... of course when I do it I leave a large buffer of 5 seconds or more....

RE: BATTERIES PLUS BULBS

I am surprised at their offering a 5 year warranty. Depending on use, charging type, and maintenance, 5 years could well be all one can expect from those batteries .... I do wish you had stated the battery mfg. and the problem you are having now . . . . Bottom line: If you do have a written warranty, you should end up on top of this .. eventually.

RE: How many can they get in that camper?

I would suspect there are tents involved in this trip . . . . .

RE: How do you cancel your Extended Service Plan?

How do you cancel your ESP. I purchased a travel trailer from Camping World about 20 days ago and have decided to cancel the ESP. GAP and wheel warranty. I tried to contact the dealer where I purchased the warranties to receive a refund and so far, have not heard back from them. In my experience, you need to notify the insurance company directly by letter , not email, not phone, but by written letter to be mailed. The procedure to request cancellation should be written out somewhere in that policy contract. Your dealer is out of the picture at this stage. He got his cut from the sale. Now you need deal directly with the insurance company.

RE: Electrical question

No one is losing money but the electric company. I would not negotiate any 'guess work' back payments with anyone.. No one, including the electric company knows how much electricity you used. If you want to do the right thing, find out who the electric company is, get the number off the meter, and advise them it is faulty.

RE: Yosemite

I do not recall the Priest grade section of Highway 120 being too difficult.... yes curvy but no excessive grade in my opinion. Lived there for 20 years and drove it often. Then again, that was 20 years ago. Note: Not to be confused with Old Priest Grade road, which is likely impossible for an RV,!

RE: Running a fridge on propane?

My three way fridge draws 2.5 Amps when it is in cooling cycle. I wouldn't think that will have much impact on your 30A shore power consumption. My experience with fridge on LPG mode is that it will run for weeks .... propane usage is quite low.

RE: RecPro RV A/C

I purchased one due to be installed at end of June. At least a couple of my fellow Winnebago Fuse owners have installed the Houghton air conditioner.... primary reason is the original Winnebago Coleman Mach 10 AC is horribly noisy. The Houghton is significantly more quiet.....plus it is available. The quiet version of the Mach 10 is back ordered many months. From what I have been able to gleen on various forums.... everyone who installed this unit is happy. I think it is too new to have attracted a lot of attention and feedback yet.

RE: 24 ft or less B+ with over head bed.

No overcab bed is the biggest difference between a B+ and a C. That is a fallacy. There is no such thing as a Class B+ Except in the minds of some marketing sales persons. Take the Dynamax Isata 3 for just one example... No overhead cab bed, But clearly a Class C . There are many others, too. If its built on a Cut-A-Way chassis like the Sprinter or Ford Transit, its a Class C. If it is a modified van chassis, it is a Class B.

RE: NorCal Fridge wont run on AC

Norcold. Thanks Ed. Trying to find a model number. Good point about fridge light 2edgesword. The Model number is likely on a sticker inside the fridge - mine is on right side wall lower down the side....

RE: NorCal Fridge wont run on AC

Refrigerator Model number would be helpful ... Is that really a Norcal.... or is it actually a Norcold ?

RE: Microsoft mail - Can send, can't receive

I agree with WA8YXM .... most likely a configuration error. Can't research on my own PC as not available at present. Perhaps someone else here can help although I'd think a Microsoft forum on their Windows 10 email program might be a better place. Good luck. I will follow this thread. One other thing you may have to do is change a security setting in Google to allow access to less secure apps. Google now considers the Windows Mail App a less secure app and therefore blocks it from doing some tasks. If you are concerned with this and while we wait for Microsoft to sort this out it might be safest to only use Gmail via a browser using mail.google.com

RE: Microsoft mail - Can send, can't receive

What does the return message for your failed email say when it comes back to the sender?

RE: Trying different method of fresh water tank sanitization

Just for the record, the recommended sanitary standard for sanitizing the RV fresh water system is 1/4 cup bleach for every 15 gallons of water. Looks like your formula is a bit deficient in bleach.....

RE: 6 v GC batteries versus 12 v lithium deep cycle batteries

In most RVs you cannot safely just replace your batteries with Lithium batteries. You need to determine if your RV charger will properly work with Lithium batteries. You also are likely needing to modify the way the engine alternator charges the house batteries if they are changed to Lithium. These are considerations the OP needs to make.

RE: RV towing on 5 through San Francisco

My motorhome including my tow is a 60' rig. I am wondering if that is too long to go through San Francisco on State I-5? Anybody have similar experience? As BTP01 has already mentioned, Inter State 5 does not go through the SF Bay area at all.

RE: Maybe a new low?

Seems to me there is a potential liability issue here considering the dangers posed by not engineering a proper safety hand rail. Your wife could have been injured in the process. Wonder how the factory will respond if you do as others here have said and contact them ..

RE: Page Az to Florence Or avoid Salt Lake City.

Jans - I take 126 from Bend to Eugene..... cut up one mile on I-5 to Beltline road and take that around Eugene back to 126 on the west side of Eugene ... (avoids any downtown traffic issues). Took either 20 or 22 to Albany once .... don't recall which one....but had a 25mph twisty windy stretch that wasn't too pleasant. 126 all the way is super easy.
