RE: Generac GP3300 modifications

My generac has separate windings that can be wired 110 or 220.

RE: Mount trailer tires yourself at home?

I did mine myself. Ordered from tire rack. Used my sprint car bead breaker to bust the bead and then 2 tire irons to swap tires and then aired them up. It was a tiny sweat buster but it only took an hour for all four and I didn't have to take the trailer anywhere. I read a bunch about balancing trailer tire and came to the conclusion most are not. I was a mid-30 something with little money and little brains.

RE: Let's talk generators - again.

I have a toyhauler with a generac g50. I have a 24 gallon fuel tank with fuel station mounted behind the axles between frame cross members just the waste tanks and freshwater tank. I would think bolting a gas tank in would be easy. The filler might be tricky. I think propane wil be a pain with your intended use.

RE: Replacement Fridge or New Cooling Unit

I just wrapped up the install of a reman cooling unit from rvcool.com tonight. On gas and propane it already got down to 33 degrees on the highest setting. The install was easy and they have a great install video that shows the whole process. Wick the owner was very helpful and willing to answer my questions. The unit was only $425 for my dometic with a lifetime warranty. Seeing other posts on this thread about installers I asked if the warranty was valid if installed by a do it yourself guy. Wick said he prefers it that way. We will see how long it lasts !

RE: Water Pump loses prime when water tank level is 1/3 full

My buddy has a Wildwood that is having this exact same problem. Water starts getting lots of air in it then wont pump at all. Pulls dump valve on the bottom and a ton of water comes out. Camping wold told him its fine and nothing is wrong. Following along to find out what you find.

RE: UPDATE --- Converter/charger issue?

My brother in law manually raised the rpms on his contractor generator while my camper was plugged into it. Not only did this catch my microwave on fire it also cooked my converter. The unloaded output voltage tested fine but when loaded it could not maintain voltage. A progressive dynamics was quickly installed along with heavy gauge wires. I could not charge at 38 amps out of a 40 amp converter.

RE: Onan external fuel pump?

Absolutely , put it where ever you want as long as you can get power to it from the gen control board. I agree that it’s mounted on the gen to keep it simple. Pumps are much happier pushing fuel than sucking it. Good on you for thinking about it and coming up with a better way!

RE: 15/30/50 SHORE POWER PLUG IN ?

Man I feel sorry for the op. This thread is like watching the news on tv, confusing and contradictory. Some of the responses are wrong and add to the confusion. It’s really no wonder this forum is dying. Yes 50 amp is 240 phase to phase and 120 phase to neutral. There, one more response that the op has no idea what is right.

RE: Wheel hub temps

All the same? I'd call it normal especially after coming down a mountain. FYI: infrared temp guns are not very accurate on shiny surfaces, but since they were close to each other i would not worry about it.

RE: How do you guys carry bicycles inside?

I just welded this up from 1/2” and 3/4” EMT. https://i.imgur.com/Fw9foCLl.jpg

RE: Replacement radio completely off

I would just install a simple 12v switch inline to the unit. Allows you to shut off power any time you have no use for it. Depending on the unit you may lose any programming (stations) when you turn the switch off. Daryll This is what my trailer has.

RE: Feet on landing gear

It you want more stability, add the triangulated links to your landing gear. I made my own and the improvement was huuuuugggeee! I added larger feet to mine so I would not need to carry around extra blocks for support on soft ground. We have the rectangular feet on our landing gear. Does switching to the round 9” feet make a difference? (More stable)

RE: Charger/Converter questions...

I added a PD converter and wired it directly to the batteries but left the old junk in place, just disconnected, as a backup in case of failure. 6 hours in the compartments of the trailer later..... -Removed Magnatek Converter. Why have two. I didn't even test it yet, I will bench test later and report back on that.. - Cleaned up wiring job on the newer PD9130. - Opened Generator Transfer switch to ensure cleanliness, etc.. All was satisfactory. - Started post maintenance testing and discovered the following: When generator ran I had 12v in coach, on battery power I had 12v in coach, and while plugged in to shore power I now have 12v in coach. I did not do anything other than re-position things and disconnect the old Magnatek Brick... so why do I now have 12v on shore power but I did not before? Is it possible that the two converters were fighting each other or maybe the magnatek converter was truly junk and back-feeding the transfer switch and not allowing it to close in the contacts for the shore power? Anyhow, everything works, everything looks neat and orderly, and I am happier that it is all simplified now. I will bench test the old Magnatek converter tonight just for piece of mind (science experiment findings to follow)...
