RE: bathroom fan

Maxxfan and Fantastic Vent fan both do what you want but are expensive. A notched piece of PVC pipe might make a usable extension.

RE: Power center problem

That is puzzling, were you checking the load side or line side of the fuse?

RE: Battery maintenance questions

That information is wrong so it is probably safe to assume everything else you were told is wrong.

RE: Generator - A/C issue

This is kind of long but I need to give all the details: I have a 2019, 2425 Coleman bumper pull RV. I have recently been in some “primitive” camping sites with no services. I have an EF3600ISDE Yamaha generator that is dual fuel (Gasoline or Propane). It is a great unit. Here is my issue and questions: Yesterday it was warm enough to turn on my RV A/C unit. I had the generator running on propane and in full throttle mode not “eco” mode. The A/C fan came on for a minute or so and the generator stayed at 3450 RPM (normal full throttle mode RPM). When the A/C compressor kicked on the generator advanced a few hundred RPMs and then went into “overload” and cut power to RV. The generator cut back the RPMs and kept running at 3450 RPMs but stayed in overload mode. I cut off A/C, shut down generator, and restarted. Generator came back on and was supplying power to RV. I did not have anything else on in RV such as microwave, coffee pot, ect. I tried again to turn on A/C and same result: power to RV was cut and generator in overload mode. Experimenting, I disconnected propane and tried running generator on gasoline. Basic same result. I noted that generator ran at 3450 RPM’s before turning on A/C when on propane or gasoline. During several attempts, some times the A/C would run a few minutes longer when compressor cut on than other times but always the generator would then go into overload mode and cut power to RV. On a whim, I restarted generator and put it in eco mode. It ran at 2650 RPM’s on both gasoline and propane in eco mode, I then cut on A/C and much to my surprise the generator went to 3040 RPM’s and A/C stayed on and power to RV was not cut off. A/C and everything worked fine. When A/C compressor would cut off the generator would cut back to 2650RPMs and when compressor cut on generator would rise to the 3050 RPM range. This was on either propane or gasoline operation. OK so the solution is to just run in eco mode HOWEVER I have a remote start/stop kit installed on the generator and instructions say “only remote start in full throttle mode and not in eco mode (actually any start up, key or remote, is supposed to be in full throttle mode). If I set up the generator in full throttle mode so I can use the remote start and not have to go outside to start the generator I can’t use A/C without going outside and put generator in eco mode. Kind of renders my remote start feature useless. Any ides why generator would go into overload mode when set on full throttle mode? Any ideas how to correct this? How many times have you repeated this with eco off/eco on? Is it a one time fluke or does it happen every time?

RE: SHANK question

Simple fix, turn the jack head 90 degrees.

RE: Front glass window protection

Think about it, the windshield of your tow vehicle doesn't have a cover either.

RE: Xchocks question

I see some are recommending the rubber chocks from Harbor Freight. I have them and don't like the design or shape. I recently got some chocks from Tractor Supply that I believe will be much better. https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/product/barn-star-structural-foam-poly-chock-ts239?cm_vc=-10005

RE: rear basket

Sounds like you may be referring to the LCI rack used by at least Keystone and Forest River. It is not supported by the bumper, there are frame mounted brackets above the bumper. Mine has a weight rating of 225 pounds.

RE: Question -- "It's Full" Gifts for RVers

Those pop up every year around Christmas time. It's from the movie National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. Great movie if you haven't seen it, part of our Christmas tradition is to watch that movie every year.

RE: Insurance Denying Claims

I have a 2012 Cyclone Toyhauler. The worst RV that I've ever owned. I am currently in a struggle with my insurance about a crack in the sidewall by the bedroom slide that they are denying. Has anyone dealt with insurance on similar matters? Does anyone know a lawyer that may be able to help me out with a letter to the insurance company to get them to reverse their decision to deny the claim. I have full coverage, denied because they believe that t was caused by a user maintenance issue. The crack started at the bedroom slide and has started to work its way towards the front of the camper. the crack has allowed moisture to penetrate the exterior structure and has caused delamination in this area now. There are no user maintainable seals in this area. Thanks to everyone for all the replies. I got side tracked with replying, lot of stuff going on and to top it off I'm likely gonna have to come up with some serious money to fix the issues. I've dropped the RV off at another facility to see if they have another angle to approach. Most of the initial answers were that insurance is a scam and the Manufacturer might as well be located on Pluto. If I can figure out how to post Pics I'll throw some up. It isn't clear if you are referring to an extended warranty/service contract or auto insurance. If the latter, you're out of luck unless this is the result of an accident.

RE: Stabilizer Jacks

I bought a trailer with auto level but when shopping a dealer recommended the manual jacks. He said using a cordless drill is faster and easier. I've noticed some manufacturers put the switch in an awkward position.
