RE: 30A Surge Protector Recommendations

I have to shut mine off when we boondock for four wheeling trips. The generator trips the unit for "open ground". I'm normally only using the trailer for sleeping....with a space heater for heat. Maybe a bit of t.v. as I nod off. So I figure nothing important will get fried. There is a way around that, so you don't have to bypass the EMS,just make or BUY a grounding plug for your generator. This Thread may be of help to you if you are interested in doing it.

RE: 30A Surge Protector Recommendations

I put the hard wired Progressive Industries HWC-30 in my TT. I cheaped out and didn’t get the remote display. Mistake. Only problem is it does it’s job well. No ground, inverted polarity on the mains, NO POWER passed. No workarounds. Had low voltage at one place, it kept shutting off power. I suggest having a bypassable plug so you can get power in those odd cases IF you determine the risk is worth it. This is one very good reason to have the remote display if you want to bypass the EMS and restore power and take the risk. width=240

RE: 30A Surge Protector Recommendations

The portable units such as the EMS-PT30X(50X) are not considered by Progressive to be field serviceable, only the hard wire series (which I own) is field serviceable - open a portable version and you'll instantly void the warranty. That's why the company insists any portable unit be returned for repair or replacement whereas with a hard wire version they will mail you the parts required to fix it yourself. Which I have done.

RE: 30A Surge Protector Recommendations

On my Class C I went for the hard wired EMS-HW30C for the best protection. There will be others along soon with many differing views so until then This Chart may be helpful when deciding what is best for you.

RE: Quality Replacement for the old Style MaxxAir Fan Mate 850

I would not discount the new Fan Mate with the large cotter pin type clips. I had the old 850 and while nice the thumb screws that you twist off to open,like this height=220 Galled on me after only 2 years. I had to cut them off to get the cover to open. I replaced it with the new Fan Mate,it has the same Six-Year Limited Warranty, it is taller in the rear so the fancover opens more to give more air flow, and with the clips it is easy to open to clean. Mine has been on for 5 years in the California sun and looks and functions as new.The old one still sits in my storage shed.

RE: Ceiling fabric separation

For sagging headliner in my car I have used These pins,they may be helpful for the sagging part.The leak that was mentioned before would have to addressed also. They come in many different styles and colors,if done correctly and spaced correctly they solved my problem and did look as if factory installed.

RE: New porch light

Maybe we should hold a class on reading comprehension,read the OPs post and read the sentence in BOLD..... Maybe you should, you can bundle it up with a class in how to avoid the urge to become a self appointed forum moderator. This is true maybe I should :B,but now I have 2 more nominees that this post reminded me of.

RE: New porch light

They are low light emitting for a reason. While out camping, who wants the guy next to you shining his light on you and your peaceful campout? Didn't' take long for the light police to jump in. I guess they go by the mantra of "If I don't like it no one should have it". SAD Because nothing is better than being at a dark sky area at a state or ACOE campground and having the folks around you lighting the whole place up like the Vegas strip. Its the greatest. SAD. :S Maybe we should hold a class on reading comprehension,read the OPs post and read the sentence in BOLD.....:R Hi, I am tired of the single bulb, low light output, of the porch light that came with my trailer. Put a LED in there a number of years ago, but it's still not bright enough.....or, more likely, my eyes simply need more light than they used to. Seldom have it on, but when on, I want to see. Bothering anyone with "light pollution" isn't an issue where I usually am My buddies new trailer has lots of light, but I would rather not buy a new trailer just to get more light. Any suggestions for a different fixture I can put out there? Thanks,

RE: Member Blocking is a Blessing

I also have a fairly long list of the ones that have nothing to add to the conversation,trolls, just argue or fling insults. The funny thing is that they seem to have all dissapeared,I never see their blocked posts anymore. Maybe these aholes and idiots have found someplace other to disparage, malign, criticize or insult others. I agree that the Mods do a great job of cleaning up discussions,one in particular that has been here since 2004,thanks.

RE: RV door window

The only repetitive complaint I have heard is that you have to open the door to raise/lower the shade as the screen door is in the way. Personally, I would think folks could have figured that out before purchase and installation. This is why I opted to go with the Easy Window I have a valance above the door with a roll down shade that works well and I can get to it with out opening the screen door.Also when shade is rolled I have a total view outside,with the other the shade, when up takes away a some of the view thru the window. It also opens so I can get more air in,I only have a small window on that side of the RV. I am sure you will like this addition to your camper,good luck with the install.It is really helpful to have another person to hold it in place.Don't ask me how I know :B

RE: Replacement window

You can try Easy Windows They have instant pricing,types of windows you can order, and how to measure. I replaced one of my windows and the staff there is very helpful and the prices seem to be reasonable.

RE: Seat Covers for Ford 350

I have used The seat shop they have quality cloth and vinyl replacement seat covers. If you don't find your seat in their search engine just call them,they are really helpful. They also have videos on how to replace the covers,I found them to be extremely useful.

RE: What % Of Alcohol Does Your State Have?

It is curious that sugarbeet farmers with a crop that yields 134% more sugar per acre, and 40% of fertilizer are ignored. Maybe their Lobbyist find much more money in sugar.
