RE: TS-30 transfer switch failure.

You can't bypass it. If you do, SHorepower would backfeed into the generator, and generator would backfeed through the shorepower cord. That might let out the mystery blue smoke.

RE: setting a digi tank monitor f

Well, what kind of tank monitor is it? We can't help until we know what you are talking about. Do you have the manual for it? If not, download it from the manufacturer's website.

RE: Sit rep on “new” camper after first trip.

Don't leave the bikes unlocked, even if you are inside the rig. They might vanish quick! Like happened to this couple north of Spokane a few weeks ago.

RE: KZ Connect C231RBKSE Refrigerator Quit Working

When discussing an item in an RV, use the brand and model number of that item, the model of the RV is useless. Ditto. Youtube is an awesome resource for troubleshooting info.

RE: To buy a generator or not...

3. Purchase a cheaper Harbor Freight or similar generator. I know they aren't top of the line compared to Honda or Yamaha but for our infrequent needs it might be the way to go. Get a Predator 2000. You might also consider a Micro Air Easy-Start. It lets me reliably run my 11k BTU A/C on a Honda EU2200.

RE: Sit rep on “new” camper after first trip.

What does "Sit Rep" mean in the title of this thread? I've been trying to decipher that grouping of words all day today.

RE: Sit rep on “new” camper after first trip.

1. The batteries 2 new 6v GCs don’t seem to last as long as they should. Knowing how we were conserving on DC power when dry camped, it would only make it about a day with a few hours of genny charging Time for an amp hour meter, which is a fuel gauge for the battery bank. Victron BMV-712 or the Victron Smart Shunt are the best there is. I have the BMV 712 2. The usb plugs on 12V overheated and fried, charging 2 phones at the same time. Since they are fried, it's obvious they need replaced, so replace them with quality parts from Marinco or Blue Sea Systems. Here's some I added in my TT a few years ago Here's some I added in my newer TT last year with a big faceplate I found on Amazon 3. I greased the wheels I'm lost there. What does "greased the wheels" really mean? Is there a missing word in that phrase?

RE: Battery Upgrade in my AF 992 - BATTLEBORN!

Nice clean install, good job. Many of us TCers have gone with lithium batteries, I installed 3- 100Ah Battleborn batteries with 480 watts of solar in my rig. Thanks! I still haven't decided if I'm going to do solar or not. I'm leaning towards not doing it because I almost always camp in the shade here in WA.

RE: Great Tow Capacity - Bad Payload Capacity... Increase PL?

That said, is there anything that can be done to increase the payload capacity? No. The payload stated by the truck manufacturer "is what it is" and can't be changed. Time for a truck upgrade. The situation you have is exactly why I always say when truck shopping, skip the 2500/250 series trucks and go straight to a 350/3500. That way, you won't need to buy a new truck when you decide to upgrade the RV.

RE: Sit rep on “new” camper after first trip.

Well our new to us 2017 camper ..... Love the stout springs and 16” wheels! I thought this was a post about a truck camper, until I saw the mention of springs and wheels. LOL Sounds like you have a trailer.

RE: Onan Cummins 2500i inverter generator (Hear it Run!)

Redesigning the mounting for the new one was very time consuming. Two of the generator mounting holes were not in the same location as the frame cross members that the generator needed to be bolted to. The frame members were not lined up for the old generator either, Northwood simply drilled through the cross member and into the base pan of the generator with self tapping screws instead of using threaded bolts to use the proper mounting holes on the old gen. The new generator did line up with one frame cross member, but not the other one. I cut some large thick pieces of aluminum to make an offset mounting adapter plate so I could use the proper mounting holes in the new gen. That was the only major "gotcha" moment. There were several minor issues: The original 24" propane line was 2" too short. I replaced it with a 36" I am still dealing with the exhaust pipe. Had I kept the pipe from the old generator, this wouldn't be an issue, but when I sold the old generator, I didn't plan on needing the old tail pipe, so I included it with the sale of the old gen. The pipe I am temporarily using is from the travel trailer that this generator was originally intended to be installed in. It doesn't drop down low enough, so I need to replace it once I get the correct parts.

Onan Cummins 2500i inverter generator (Hear it Run!)

I FINALLY got around to getting this thing installed. Three words describe it: IT IS AWESOME! Prior to removing the HGJBB generator I did a bunch of sound testing with it. I duplicated those sound tests with the HGLAA while I was putting some break-in run time on it. I am very happy with how much quieter it is and the lack of vibration compared to the old model. (HGJBB) First start-up and sound testing. Previously: Unboxing Inside Look

RE: New truck pricing

So... is there any negotiating when you order a truck? Depends on what the current offers are at the time you take delivery.

RE: New truck pricing

Don't want to spend $80G and get beat to death while driving ;) Smooth ride - that's the beauty of the GM trucks - IFS.

RE: New truck pricing

Price of a 3500 compared to a 2500 is very minimal in difference. I'd say go 3500, then you won't need to buy another new truck when you want a gargantuan RV upgrade down the road.

RE: Remove/replace onboard generator

I just love having a built in generator. Onboard gennys are a lot less likely to get stolen at a campground too. I never leave my portable genny out of the trailer if it's not running. Once I am done using it, it goes back in the trailer.

Battery Upgrade in my AF 992 - BATTLEBORN!

Last winter I installed a Victron inverter in in my 2018 AF 992. The final phase of that project was replacing the wet cell batteries with a pair of Battleborns that spent the previous 1.5 years in a small TT I had. I jettisoned the sliding battery tray, which was a heavy paperweight. I built a small wood platform to put the batteries on and also mounted the inverter fuse next to the batteries. Here's more details of the project

RE: Duramax Turbo adventure conclusion

When the CEL turned on, did you ever check to see what code was set? (Pxxxx) ?

RE: Basic Maintenance

When it comes time to replace the brakes, upgrade to Dexter Dexter Nev-R-Adjust brakes I have them and they are awesome.

RE: Remove/replace onboard generator

I certainly don't want one of those gaudy racks hanging off the front of my truck. Where would I carry one if I didn't take my ATV on the trailer along? My Portable genny goes in the trailer too. OOPS, It's not very portable though.
