RE: HOST Mystery 12vdc power port!!!???

Randall at Host would know if they installed it. If he says no maybe the unit was sold and returned shortly thereafter. I would think that the dealer would be obligated to disclose that. It's actually a neat feature but really odd that nobody can explain it. In most of the states TC are consider cargo, so they don't fall under resale laws. Would that be in state where registration is required, the dealer could not go around it.

RE: Dometic RM2607 Refrigerator problem

I did some fridge testing couple years ago and 120V and propane had not noticeable differences in cooling. 12V element was lower output thought. I recheck my thermistor and it is all the way down. I think your should go down too.

RE: Dometic RM2607 Refrigerator problem

Read the manual. The fridge part temperature is adjusted by sliding the thermistor on internal fin on my model.

RE: 350/3500 trucks, engine weight gas vs diesel

I would think extra weight on front axle can only increase rock climbing abilities? I don't do rock climbing, but couple weeks ago we went to beach campground. With some access roads having dust on them, even SUVs would regularly got stuck. But there was 1 guy who was making fortune pulling everybody out, including big 5-ers and DP. He drove Dodge diesel dually and had mud tires.

RE: Adding an A/C

My factory AC operates at 6.3 amp. But with AC it is always about starting current.

RE: Arctic Fox air conditioning question

Might it need to be run every 2-3 months to keep seals/gaskets lubricated ? Not really. In the past I bought DP who was sitting 8 years under the tree. With new batteries it fired right up on original fuel and 2 roof AC + dash AC worked just fine.

RE: Arctic Fox air conditioning question

I've been using 303 since it was single formula only. At the time my boat got its treatment from bimini top, via windshield down to trailer tires. Even it is not recommenced on paint, sun-beaten paint on trailer look better. Good as water repellent on windshield. Amazing stuff.

RE: Adding an A/C

With lack of wire you can put new one in WIREMOLD Figuring out new breaker will requiring some more experience. Or you can tap into existing outlet, but then you will have to be very careful with power management.

RE: Back up camera using factory screen

For narrow trailer, smart owners put 8' wide rod or lumber across, what can have painted or flagged ends for better visibility.

RE: Arctic Fox air conditioning question

Most of AC have inner air filter, what most of the time is washable foam. I also am big fan of Formula 303 for protecting plastic and fiberglass parts, so spray top cover whenever I go there.

RE: Adding an A/C

Lot of campers are prewired for AC, what makes the job easy. Check if your central roof opening is having Romex wires in it. Sometimes it is separate electric cover next to it, sometimes you have to pull inner shroud. Also check breaker panel for wire.

RE: Back up camera using factory screen

I apologize for slightly expanding the question. Who knows have to change a stock 'backup' camera into a rear view camera that can be turner on and off with a switch, instead of selecting reverse. (I know it will be manufacturer specific). That's how my old truck/TC was setup with an aftermarket camera and screen, and it was very useful since the inside mirror is useless with the TC on. I've been researching this subject not only for rear camera, but for using front Ford camera for traffic records. Somebody would have to hack Ford's software and to day I did not find such person.

RE: New Fridge questions

Before TC I had motorhomes without leveling jacks, so we park out of level quite often. What I notice is that RESTARTING the fridge makes it very sensitive to level as with fridge off - ammonia tends to accumulate in low spot, blocking the flow. But we camp in high temperatures, so fridge was never off and I remember only 2 times when cold night shut the burner off and we had warm fridge following morning.

RE: New Fridge questions

I have 2 Dometic RV fridges turning 19 years old and both work very well. Did some testing 2 years ago, simulating food loads and even in 100F outside, the freezer kept frozen. There is nothing that can wear on them, so beside corrosion, or carboned burner they are indestructible.

RE: Back up camera using factory screen

I reused Ford tailgate camera on my camper just fine. THE TOPIC

RE: New Fridge questions

First for us, there is no such thing as too big fridge. At home we often run 2 fridges even there is 2 of us. 5 cu in TC makes us repacking food to smaller dishes. We just like to have choices when dinner time comes. Running 2-way fridge off 12V is not a big deal when inverters become so cheap (I spend $1200 for 1 over a decade ago), but is there significant price difference between 2-way and 3-way fridge? Most of things in RV comes with backup mode and 12V is a good backup. Not to mention Lance makes heavier cords just to run fridge on 12V straight from the truck. Today's truck often have alternators in 200 amp range, so not like we run short on supply. But start with tape measure and checking the way out/in. On some campers even removing door or window is not enough.

RE: Propane Generator to Gas.

worry about fuel use? install a diesel gen set. I have a pp and love it. its now 13yrs old and fires right up. For years, as a joke on other forum I added "seeking diesel push mower" into my profile. Took 5 years and fellow member found me 1, but at $7000 price tag, I passed.

RE: Camper jack torn off driving

....Campers had three leg jacks. Also, I've had my 10.5 foot Okanogan on three legs and not on particularly level ground, with a breeze going. Extra wiggle, sure. But didn't seem to be in danger of going over.... That remind me Russian ingenuity http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_ir6h9Q90O7g/TUBxp1QnkOI/AAAAAAAACqE/UZ1LAuEcXE0/s1600/3-wheels-tractor.jpg width=600

RE: Propane Generator to Gas.

Removing 1 of 7.5 gallons propane cylinders make plenty of storage for gas can.... with triple running time. Sure, but fridges, water heaters, stoves, ovens, builtin generators, and furnaces don’t run on gasoline. That's why I said remove 1 aka ONE. I also removed generator, what gives me storage for 2 more cans, while generator sits on front hitch.

RE: Propane Generator to Gas.

The reason why small RVs don’t have gasoline engine generators is they don’t typically have gasoline storage built in. Removing 1 of 7.5 gallons propane cylinders make plenty of storage for gas can.... with triple running time.
