RE: Class A Troubleshooting for us Newbies

Almost a month RV needs 120v power the outlets, potter the charge converter that charges the house/camper batteries Your fridge uses propane aka LP, for cooling, it uses 12v power for the controls that make it work, your lights are 12v, your water pump is 12v The levelling jacks use 12v to power the hydraulic pump and the jack controls You need to run the the generator several hours per day to keep the House batteries charged so everything can have battery power

RE: Iphone vs separate hotspot box

service aka signal access has more to do with the carrier you have , not whether it is your iPhone or a Wi-Fi hotspot If you get a hotspot, get one from a different carrier than your phone That way one of them might have a useable signal Most of us have at least 2 devices with different mobile phone carriers I have AT&T for my hotspot, and Verizon for my phone

RE: Outlook/Google Issue

Are you using the same PC ? Does it work with the Mobley if you park the RV At home Pop3 or imap protocol ? I haven't use an email client program in many years but I do remember you have to set gmail and the client to use the same protocol I used to use Thunderbird email client We have an older lady friend in real estate Every couple of months she would call with an email problem, and I would have to go over and RESET Outlook for her, How it would get changed idnk

RE: Lithium Batteries

The cheapie Chinese drop ins Pot the inside perhaps to keep the smaller cells they use from rattling around Will Prowse on YouTube has opened several different drop in 12v LiFePo batteries to show the quality or lack of quality One had been filled with glue after assembly He also did capacity tests on each one And he has an interview with Battle Born AFAIK The good quality ones are not potted

RE: Lithium Batteries

This is a perfect example of large cells (4) 100 ampHr 3.2v cells make (1) 100 amp HR battery (5) batteries in parallel make a 500 amp HR battery Just like stringing (5) 6 cell 12v batteries in parallel The difference, everything is in one Box/Container The connections are all inside box, With lead acid cell connections are in the box and battery to battery is outside cabling Some of these arguments are nitpicking , trying to turn mole Hills into mountains

RE: Tradewinds 2001 model 7390

6.3-4v per battery across one pair of battery posts, That's 12.6 to 12.8 per pair and OK But 6.4v. From ground to main positive Means the batteries are dead Main ground to main positive for the RV is 12.8 for full charge,

RE: Help NEWBIE: Buying Class A Coach

Do you mean rough ride feel the bumps Two words .... AIR SUSPENSION and when you do the test drive Adjust the suspension to suit your comfort level Also remember, you are test driving an empty coach which will always be stiffer than a loaded coach and will feel more road bumpy

RE: FORD 460 Overheating Mystery

Are the rubber shrouds/air dams that belong around the the top and sides of the radiator still in place and in good shape These must be there, they seal the front of the RV and force the air to go thru the radiator and not around or under/over radiator and engine Your comment about removing the engine cover/doghouse , caused me to think you increased air flow thru the cooling system by allowing it into the RV

RE: File transfer via Bluetooth

On 3 occasions I was coerced into helping a friend with an iPhone Each time I had to use iTunes on my pc to communicate with the iPhone and complete the task I suggest you try that I do not have any Apple products, (which is a very closed system)

RE: Verizon cell signal lost at night

With good speeds on data and no problems I would not worry about the signal strength numbers You obviously have good bandwidth

RE: Verizon cell signal lost at night

It should be noted -80 db is a stronger signal than -100 db Seems weird until you understand that Zero would mean optimum max signal saturation And the measurement is how weak/far away The signal is from optimum -60 db is practically setting on the cell tower

RE: Verizon cell signal lost at night

Several factors and they could be cumulative Distance from tower Cell system maintenance being performed (Signal traffic bandwidth would be reduced while some components are offline)

RE: Total outdoor flame device ban Oregon SP

Sunday afternoon They closed the local park where me and friends were, forcing hundreds of people to leave (very good idea) because the wildlife area adjacent to the park was on fire They got it under control fast, over 100 firefighters, confined it to about 20 acres Golf courses and heavy residential areas very close by, fire station 3 miles up the road, There is a scorched spot in the park (not the section we had been in), but no facilities damage has been reported
