RE: 12 volt Refrigerator

Thanks for the link! Verified my fear of purchasing a soly 12 volt equipt RV. Now I have another thing to put on my bucket list, Australia looks like a great adventure. Tanks again! I got a great deal on a used RV. Sadly there was an issue. It came with a 7 cuft compressor refrigerator that chewed way too much power to be useable. If you want to learn the details, here is an example of the issues: https://www.exploroz.com/members/145028.75/1/2009/queensland_adventures_winter_2008.aspx?p=%2fblogs%2fdefault.aspx I could not easily convert to propane because there was no back access and no roof vent. Instead I got a much smaller (4 cuft) Nova Kool compressor refrigerator. It pulls 2.3 amps. The duty cycle time is HIGHLY dependent on ambient temperatures. Around 60 degrees it runs maybe 1/4 of the time. By 70 degrees, the duty cycle increases to between 1/3 and 1/2. At 80 degrees it runs full time. Beyond that it struggles to maintain frozen food and a 40 degree refrigerator temp. I super insulated the compartment, increased the ventilation and even use a couple of computer fans on the coils in hot weather.

RE: 12 volt Refrigerator

Thank you all for the great input. I think traveling thru alaska will be challenging for a 12 volt only refrigerator. I have always had a propane 120v unit and they have served we well.

Suburban 10 Gallon Hot water heater

Suburban 10 Gallon Hot water heater. 17 years old can not get anode rod back in thread looks rusted and I may have stripd it. Have been changing this thing for 15 years without a problem. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.I have attempted to put a new rod in and also tried to replace it with a brass plug with no success. Tried to get a die to clean up threads but everyone in this area looks at me with a weary face,no luck. Thanks in advance,r0n…...

RE: Receiver Hitch broken

Is this the hitch on the MH? What chassis is it on? Best guess the tow bar is not turning on corners. What tow bar? Draw-Tite 5350 Multi-Fit Motor Home Hitch

2004 motorhome towing a 2004 jeep liberty using a Blue OX tow bar. :( The Draw-Tite 5350 or Curt 13701 should fit your motorhome. Both are adjustable up to 51" and are rated for 5,000 lbs. Draw-Tite 5350 Curt 13701

Receiver Hitch broken

Have a Hidden Hitch Model # 64-6100 that cracked on the weld. I brought it to a seasoned welder and he rewilded it after about 600 miles it broke again. Was wondering why it says on the hitch not to weld? This is on a 2004 motorhome towing a 2004 jeep liberty. I know just replace it but not very easy to find a replacement. Thanks for any inf .... r0n.....
