RE: GFCI Issue looking for a solution

They usally do that so if water does get in there it can get out. I wouldn't seal all 4 sides. Or just leave a hole on the bottem just in case. So , seal 90 percent of it. Good idea.

RE: GFCI Issue looking for a solution

UPDATE: Well the new GFCI did trip too, just a little slower. I took the patio outlet apart and sure 'nough there was a little moisture in there. I also noticed that the factory ran the caulk on the top and sides but not the bottom!!! I did some driving in the rain and I am guessing road splash got under the plate. I have ordered a new outlet (cuz there was a crack in the plastic where they screwed it in) and a new/better cover plate that I will caulk on ALL 4 edges.

GFCI Issue looking for a solution

My camper has a 15 amp GFCI circuit that starts in the bathroom and has 4 other outlets downstream on the load side. While out camping recently I had issues with the GFCI refusing to reset when the camper was plugged into the post and we were on shore power. I would hit the reset button and it would just trip again. I bought a new GFCI outlet and same problem. I thought it was a problem with one of the downstream outlets. I figure when I'm home I'll start isolating the outlets one by one to find the culprit. At home, and with the help of an adapter on the cord, I plug into an isolated 15 amp circuit (don't have a 30 amp circuit) off my house panel. And this point I think, just for the heck of it, try to reset the outlet, and lo and behold it resets. I am not doing anymore investigation into other outlets for now. The only thing I can think is that the voltage at the campground was low. Would that cause a GFCI not to reset? Is one of those Progressive EMS surge protectors the answer? How hard a wiring job is the onboard style?

RE: Truck Mod Question, re: CargoGlide

I have something different. Search for "Bed Slide". The slide, slides out. I use tubs for storage and double stack them. Can reach all tubs without climbing in. To reach the tubs on the front of the slide, I have to unload some of the tubs. The common items that I need often are just inside the tailgate (rear of the slide). Very rare that I have to climb into the back of the camper shell. I hope this is helpful! Pat Yes, this it what I am think of. Cargo Glide is the brand name. Climbing in and out of the truck bed is getting old, as am I. T

Truck Mod Question, re: CargoGlide

Anyone have a cargo glide under their truck cap? Any thoughts about building a framework for storage, like dedicated slots for camp chairs, tools, storage bins, leveling boards and sand pads, etc? I could see doing this, but would like to know if anyone out there has done this and get their thoughts on the best way to go about it.

RE: Voice-to-text software

I use and like Dragon, but you do need to train yourself and the software to work at full effect.

RE: I-94 through Chicago

Though I94 doesn't totally avoid tolls. North of Chicago you have to switch to US41 to avoid a section of the Tristate (after 94 jogs over to join 294). 41 is multilane with stop lights. Watch the underpasss heights on US41. A really tall trailer might have an issue. 12ft will work though
