RE: Replacing AC; can a 15k btu go where a 13.5k btu used to be?

Yes. And when you install it, use blue thread lock on the mounting bolts. Multiple times mine have loosened up and then water leak in under the gasket when it rained. Other owners have had the same problem. Video: Threadlock on the A/C bolts.

RE: 2010 Duramax electric brake voltage??

OP why are you asking about the trailer brakes on that rig? IE if they don’t work well at a reasonable gain, they need to be fixed. That was my thought too, plus, it's someone else's truck, so don't be concerned with it.

Right now Visible has a 50% off deal ($15 per month for 1 year) if you bring your own phone

...unless you want to call Australia or the Congo. Might need to someday, to collect the lottery winnings from the long lost Prince that emailed everyone saying you won their mystery lottery.

RE: 2010 Duramax electric brake voltage??

Question. Friends are heading out tomorrow from Saskatchewan heading for Southern California. They are driving a 2010 Duramax pulling a fifth wheel. Would his truck have a similar setting other than the normal “gain” adjustment? Nope. I have a 2009, which is identical to the 2010. There's a plus and minus sign to tweak the gain setting, that's all. Any HD Silverado/Sierra 2007.5 and newer could have the ITBC, not just the Duramax equipped trucks.... so really, it's "Silverado/Sierra" (maybe even a 1500 truck / Suburban / Tahoe option too) not just a "Duramax" thing. Also, 2007.5 - 2010 is the LMM Duramax, which don't have an exhaust (turbo) brake 2011 + (LML, L5P) have an exhaust brake.

Is there something better for rural areas these days, or? Starlink.

RE: time to replace brakes?

Throw ALL those Math problems Into the trash can and stop over thinking. IF the brakes a low, AND your taking that multi thousand mile trip ( 6,000 - 10,000 ) , just replace them and be done with it..:S DITTO piece of mind = priceless Correction: "peace" of mind A piece of someone's mind makes them only have a partial brain...LOL

RE: Help with Lithium upgrade and inverter install. Lance 825

DeltaBravo. Thank you! (You live in Spokane? I am in Hayden) Yes, sort of. I'm technically in the Mead area, just south of Green Bluff.

RE: Honda generator to truck camper

Once upon a time I had a Progressive Dynamics hard wired EMS system in my AF 811. It rejected generator power until I flipped a switch on its remote panel to disable one mode of its monitoring - open ground I think. I always had to remember to flip that switch to use my EU2000. One aspect of the hard wired unit that I despised, and a portable unit would surely do the same thing when plugged in to a smaller portable gen is this: Any time my roof A/C compressor kicked on, the generator voltage would drop just enough to trigger the EMS unit to cut off incoming power (low voltage protect). When that happened, the compressor would of course be in a semi-locked rotor condition and would NOT start when the EMS re-enabled incoming power, so the voltage would sag again and the EMS would cut off power. The ONLY way to get the generator to reliably run the A/C due to the issues with the hard wired EMS I had was to turn on my inverter, which would allow the inverter to carry the load of the A/C when the generator voltage sagged and caused the EMS to kill incoming generator power. Once the EMS re-enable incoming generator power, the inverter transfer switch would enable and switch off inverter mode and then the generator would power the A/C. For the above reasons, I never recommend using a surge protector (portable or hard wired) when using a smaller sized portable generator. I had my AF 811 for close to 11 years. About 3 years before I sold it, I removed the hard wired EMS and ebay'd it.

RE: 8 Gauge Wire

I am running a Victron DC to DC Charger in my AF 992. From the engine bay to the truck bed, I have 4AWG wire with an Anderson connector where it plugs in to the camper. From the DC to DC Charger to the truck bed pigtail, I used large wire too, but I honestly don't remember what size it is. Here's a few videos of that project, which might give you some ideas: Truck to RV High Amperage Battery Charging Installing a Victron Orion TR Smart 12-12-30 DC to DC Charger

RE: Inverter and battery sizing to power my camper microwave

I had a 2000 PSW inverter in my AF 811 for 10 years, with two wet cell batteries for about 7 years, then 2 AGM batteries for the last several years I owned the camper. It ran the microwave just fine. I use my microwave all the time, at least once a day and there's never any issues. All the various inverters I've used since the mid 90s have a built in transfer switch, so the easiest way to install them is to disconnect the shower power cord from the AC panel, route it to the inverter and then run a new air from the inverter to the AC panel. All AC circuits are powered from the inverter. With this setup, I often will power my fridge by the inverter when driving. The inverter will run the A/C, but two AGM batteries don't have enough capacity to do so, so I never expected the A/C to get powered by the inverter. Xantrex PSW 2.0 in my AF811 This is the AGM upgrade I did in about 2016 or so

RE: Honda generator to truck camper

I was just curious I’m in the high country of Tucson Arizona it’s been raining since 10:30 So I tarped the trailer to keep the rain off the generator . I built a generator tent

RE: 2005 Arctic fox 1150 boat loader

Back to the main question about attaching some mechanical mechanism to the camper for lifting canoes, kayaks, etc on the roof. There isn't enough structure in the walls to bolt stuff to that would support that kind of weight. I haul my junk in a trailer.

RE: Slab sinking

(There is a perpenducular crack in the center to so it isn't sinking evenly) Any thoughts? Concrete has two guarantees, it gets hard and it cracks.

RE: Pet Peeves in RV Parks

"At the risk of sounding like an old grouch, lets lay out our gripes about camping in RV Parks." Why? Maybe it makes you feel better, Ranting often does. But complaining on this forum about what is going on at your RV park does nothing to solve the problem. This is an RV / Camping "forum". In Forums, we discuss stuff. If you don't like the discussion, don't complain about it.
