RE: Westinghouse i4500 Generator

Gdetrailer- Not going to defend Westinghouse in depth, but their <3% THD is plenty good. AND I had the same behavior from a Yamaha 2000iS which I would consider a “high quality” generator (from previous thread). Additionally I know someone with same 5er and ACs (without Magnum) that can run not just one of the ACs with their Westinghouse i4500 but BOTH ACs as long as everything is off. Bottom line, at this point I’m convinced there is something in my particular Magnum 3012 that doesn’t play well with genny s. Just spent another 30min with Magnum support, and they’re going to research and call back again tomorrow. The big question in my mind at this point is this anomalous behavior from my inverter? (Tech and literature suggest probably/yes) Or is this inherent in the Magnum design; in which case I probably will just add soft starts, but should have chosen Victron, but too late now. maybe i missed it, does it do the same thing on grid power if you ramp it lower?

RE: Awning replacement fabric adventure...oy

how much is the material? I have a feeling I will need new material as well.Depends on the type of material, and how much you will need. Our awning material from ShadePro was $199 for the vinyl material for our 20 foot awning. Very happy with it. wow for once i overshot the price. I thought this stuff was 1k for some reason.

RE: Replace Ladder stand off nut

Not sure which one of those you're concerned about. The Tiffin ladders are backed up by a molded in steel sheet behind the fiberglass, so removing those screws is fine as long as you don't "ham hand" them going back in. Don't power drive. A line in your signature with your rig info (brand, model, year) helps responders tailor their comments to your rig. its a 2000 chateau sport, but is that the procedure the entire ladder has to come off? there is 0 video's or docs on the replacement procedure

Replace Ladder stand off nut

has anyone replaced these? over half of mine are rusted out. I am trying to think of a way to replace all of them without removing the screws in the fiberglass, but I am assuming this is not going to be possible.. link of what i bought

RE: Battery Isolator - Parasitic Current

Got a reply back from the seller of the $85 KeyLine Battery Isolator about its parasitic current. Their reply: "Yes, it is always monitoring and takes .02 Amps to do so." 20ma is more than acceptable for our application. FWIW, there's a number of battery isolators on Amazon that look eerily similar to the KeyLine, have the same dimensions (2.6 x 2.6 x 2), voltage cut out/in (12.8v/13.3v) and amperage specs (140a) as the KeyLine, but cost significantly less (one was only $27). add a toggle switch on the ground and you will get it down to 0. Be aware you won't get emergency start from this,

RE: Dicor lap sealant or Eternabond tape for new roof vent

can dicor be placed over old dicor, or does it all have to be removed to work?

RE: Onan surging/backfiring. Brand new fuel pump/filter/carb

are you sure the spark is good? pull the gas line off and prime it should be pumping a decent amount of a fuel i have a 4k 2000 era onan, it starts perfect, but starts cutting out, i have determined the coil goes weak and stops firing. i just got the ignition coil, my generator has to come out and be taken apart to replace. it was 12f here today, its going to be a while if you pull the air filter and spray carb cleaner and it doesn't pick up, start looking at spark closer.
