RE: Battery Maintenance

In four years, I've yet to add water to my batteries. Glad to hear you found the issue with the Xantrex. Very satisfied with mine. Of course, you'll want to check the levels, keep them clean etc. during your regular maintenance, right? But, don't overthink things unless you have an issue. Enjoy the coach and go camping....Dennis

RE: Dolly towing

someone needs to explain to me how it is all right to tow it 4 down with the drive shaft in but you need to take it out to tow on a dolly. Am I missing something here? Slap that puppy in neutral and go. 1995 Jeeps, assuming they're 4WD, only need to be put in neutral. Taking off the drive shaft is only to get you dirty, and make you manly looking cuz you own a Jeep. It's recommended you don't shave for three days prior to leaving. :)......Dennis 95 Tow guide

RE: 100 amp service

I'm guessing the OP is confused as to the wiring on the coach he's considering. A 50amp coach uses two 120V lines to supply 12,000 watts to the coach. A 30 amp coach uses only one 120V line which maxes out at 3600 watts. Perhaps the OP could help us out here....Dennis

RE: LED lighting

Depends on the size. 2' are everywhere. 18" are harder to find but they are out there. What size are you looking for? Here is a good starting place...Here are the 18"ers...that said, I believe all replacements require a small amount of snipping and cutting. The ballast is not used..I replaced all of mine with ribbon LEDs and am happy with the result.....Dennis

RE: Water system woes.

Generally there are only two things that cause the pump to run continuously. A bad water pump or a leak in the system. Only way to trouble shoot it is to trace all the lines. I'd start with a tank at least half full. Since you just replaced the water filter, I'd start there. Often that O ring doesn't get sealed properly and it allows water to bypass..happy hunting....Dennis

RE: Benefits of registration in SD

Lots of assumptions in the responses. Here is my two cents, since we are SD residents. IF you are a full time RVr then you are free to pick and choose your State of Residency. That said, it's imperative that you follow certain guidelines to ensure you're following current law to prevent the tax man from knocking on your door. These guidelines are spelled out pretty clearly in the IRS codebook, but basically says you may choose your domicile State as the one you MIGHT intend to reside in should you end your full time gig. That in itself is pretty nebulous. Anyway, there are many reasons to choose South Dakota. We left California and it's high taxes 11 years ago and never looked back. If you are a full time RVr, then simply begin transferring EVERYTHING to SD, including your bank accounts, voter registration, plates, driver's license etc. Everything can be done on-line with two exceptions. One, you must visit SD for one day and obtain your driver's license in person. You also must return every 5 yrs to renew with the same requirement. Yes, they do ask for verification. The other thing you cannot do on-line is obtain handicapped plates. They require a SD doctor's certification to get the plates...after that renewal is done by mail. There are several mail forwarding places in SD but make sure they have a verifiable USPS approved mailing address. Otherwise, you will have difficulty in some instances such as Scottrade etc that won't accept a non-verifiable address. FMCA offers a mail service out of Sioux Falls and Americas Mailbox is out of Box Elder near Rapid City. With that said, here is the answer to your question: • No State Income Tax • No Inheritance Tax • No Personal Property Tax • No Vehicle Inspections • Vehicle Tax only 4% • Low cost vehicle/RV Registrations Hope this helps.....Dennis

RE: Question for Class A owners.

I had to drop the engine on my Porsche 930 just to change the spark plugs. If there's a will there's a way. That said, most engines are not difficult to work on. Mine has access hatches that allow easy access to most all of the engine. There's an access hatch in the closet and in the bedroom by the bed for the front 'stuff'. Everything else can be accessed thru the back as I have a side radiator. Sometimes you gotta disassemble stuff to get where you wanna go...Dennis

RE: Batteries not charging {Resolved}

Well.....I was kinda right. HIS inverter doesn't charge batteries. You are correct, HIS doesn't charge the batteries. But, it's supposed to, THAT is the reason for his post. :B....Dennis

RE: Warning Light on 2002 Monaco Diplomat

Please post what engine tranny combo you have. Also, let us know what you mean by a warning light. On mine the red light comes on accompanied by a loud 'ding'. As it flashes, it says why. i.e. check engine, fluids, water in fuel etc. If it's just a warning light with no indicator I can see where that would be irritating as well as disconcerting....Dennis

RE: 50 AMP and plugging in at home

Whoa Kimo Sabbe! It's a bit more complicated than simply replacing a breaker and receptacle. That is unless your home fire insurance is paid in full, you no longer like your house, and the insurance company won't find you at fault for frying all the wiring inside your box. Generally, 20amp service, (Tee shaped receptacle) uses 12 ga wire, 15amp service (Double I shaped receptacle) uses 14 ga wire. 50amp service uses a minimum of 10ga wire, depending on the length of the run. Simply changing out the breaker and receptacle will allow you to power up you A/C units for a bit as your breaker will not trip. However, your house wiring will then become a substitute for your breaker. Once the wiring gets too hot, it will melt and burn through if you're lucky. If you're not so lucky, it'll simply start a fire and burn your house down. Hire a licensed electrician....Dennis

RE: Batteries stopped charging

Thanks everyone. We are in a campground. I'll print your replies and give them to him in the morning. I'll take my meter along and try to help him. I'd hate to see him call out an RV tech if it's just a fuse or something simple. I'm not too familiar with fivers as I've never owned one. He said he just had one of the batteries replaced so I'll start there and check each one to see what they're reading, then I'll look for the charger. I have the phone but I also have a scope that I can hook up to the computer. I'll let everyone know what I find out tomorrow. Thanks again....Dennis

Batteries stopped charging

Asking for a friend. 2018 Solitude and the batteries stopped charging. He has four 6VDC battery bank with solar on the roof. He's hooked up to 50amp service. Checked all the normal stuff, GFCIs etc. Pedestal is solid so it's a coach gremlin. He woke up in the middle of the night to his alarm showing 11.4VDC on his battery bank. His rig has a Xantrex Freedom II inverter. I've checked all the fuses, breakers etc. and narrowed everything down to what appears to be a charging issue. I've read where there are two 'hidden' fuses behind the converter panel but I don't know where to look for those. Anyone have any thoughts.??? TIA...Dennis

RE: Motor Home Specialist in Alvarado, TX

Check with Mr.Mark on this forum. He has worked with them in the past with his Monaco product. He will provide you with a good honest answer....Dennis

RE: MH trip to Keys & New Orlean lessons

Love bugs emit a form of acid when they die. Squished on the front of your coach the acid will try to eat into whatever surface they're on. In the OPs case, it appears the plastic shield on the front of his coach was compromised. The acid from the bugs, coupled with the Florida humidity plays havoc with the plastic shield especially if it was compromised to begin with. When traveling from Texas to Florida or anywhere in between, it's imperative that they are washed off as soon as you stop for the night. We have yet to find a campground that frowns on you doing just that. If you wait a day or two, you may find yourself it the same predicament as the OP....Dennis

RE: MH trip to Keys & New Orlean lessons

Finally, we stayed at Bluewater Key in the Keys. While not in Key West itself, it's close enough. A fabulous park and close by. We found the "beaches" to be a little rocky but very clean and the water sparkling. As stated before, you'll have to scroll down a bit to Key West....Dennis Key West and the Florida Keys
