RE: Generator start leads

deltabravo ..which he has.... see original post. Perhaps you should sharpen up your reading comprehension skills, and your knowledge of Fluke meters. He said he has a clamp on meter. Perhaps you should learn how to quote posts correctly.

RE: Pro-Pride Hitch

I'm curious what make / model truck you have and how long your trailer is. We really need those details to determine if other issues are causing the problems you mention. Is your profile still correct? It shows this: 2012 F-150 XLT SuperCrew Ecoboost 2019 Flagstaff Superlite 29RKWS I wouldn't want to tow a 29' body length trailer, which is probably 34' overall length, with a half ton truck with the super short bed, with a 6 cylinder gas engine, which likely has P rated tires.

RE: Generator start leads

A Fluke 33 cannot measure DC amps, without using a DC current clamp add on. ...which he has.... see original post. My clamp-on ammeter shows 350-375 amps draw - for about a second or two.

RE: New TT Tires

agree. The tire shop I bought mine from had at one time this little know it all working for them, and said he would not balance my tires. I told him, and the owner if they wanted to sell them to me. they would balance them. And yes. you can tell the difference. I bought a flatbed car hauler trailer back in about 2007 or 2008. I tried to get the tires and wheels balanced. The tires were so badly out of balanced, I could feel it through the hitch when towing the trailer empty. The tires were so badly out of round, the tire shop said they couldn't be balanced. I took all 4 tires and wheels back to the trailer dealer and said I want these replaced. They reluctantly replaced them and made the claim that "trailer tires don't need to be balanced". I told him they were so bad, I could feel the vibration through the truck hitch. Here's a video of another trailer I bought which shows how badly out of round trailer tires can be.

RE: Dicor self leveling lap sealant caused roof to ripple

It sounds like the OP used self leveling Dicor on an Alpha Systems Superflex PVC membrane roof, which requires a specific sealant made by Alpha systems. DITTO, I've had the same thing happen.

RE: Generator start leads

It's not really ever mentioned as such, but I think towards the end of the Battleborn video I can see some 'extra' cables that look like the generator start leads coming off the battery terminals. Those are the generator starter leads (on the positive terminal). The generator B- cable connects to a negative terminal post inside the camper, which is connected to the shunt. I had to ad a terminal post because there were too many B- cable to fit on the shunt.

RE: Prepping for below freezing temps and snow.

I am doing the same preparations. I moved stuff out of the shop so I could fit my truck and camper in there. I think my camper will stay on the truck this winter so I have room to park my Polaris Ranger in front of the truck.

RE: DC-DC Charger Wiring Input Suggestions

I used Anderson connectors when I added a high amp wiring upgrade to my truck. When I upgraded to Battleborns earlier this year I installed a Victron DC to DC Charger in the camper

RE: Generator start leads

where do I land the generator starting leads at? On the batteries, un-fused and inside the disconnect & shunt? Or on the bus bar - and fused how, exactly? I put my generator B+ back to the B+ terminal with no fuse when I switched to Battleborn batteries When I installed my inverter and BMV-712, I put the generator B- cable on the load side of the shunt. I show the shunt wiring in this video or this one Yes, I realize the goal is to not have to use the genny... but I'll feel better knowing that it's still there if I need it. I installed one of the new fangled Cummins Onan 2500i generators back in June. It's lot quieter than the old model

RE: Heavy duty hitch extension??

I had the smallest Arctic Fox truck camper, the 811. I also have an 8.5x20 race trailer with a 10k GVWR. My first trip with the trailer, I loaded my well built Jeep TJ in it. The trailer was a little over 10k. It was not a pleasant experiencing hauling nearly 4k lbs in the truck bed and towing that much weight. I never hauled the Jeep in the trailer again. If I had a need to haul that much or more trailer weight again, I wouldn't be doing it with a truck and camper. I'd get a Renegade toterhome.

RE: At least I was honest

I wanted a small trailer for overnights and happened upon a Jayco dealer that had what I wanted. Which model did you purchase?

RE: 2013 Arctic Fox 990S

I have been using the Mopeka tank monitor system in my AF 811 and 992 since they first came out.

RE: Which inverter?

If the inverter produces a modified sine wave (MSW), you need a high quality volt meter that will measure TRUE RMS voltage. A run of the mill volt meter will always read MSW voltage as "low voltage" I always use PSW (Pure Sine Wave) inverters in my recent RVs.

RE: 2021 No Bo 19.5 bent axle

, and the only incident of any kind was rolling over a 4" curb at my campsite, going about 5mph. That probably cause it.

RE: Mount 100lb mini-split condenser to rear wall?

I would advise against doing so. Ditto It would look really bad, and no one would buy it when you decide to sell it. This style of heat pump is a far nicer looking option and won't destroy the rear wall (or resale value) of your RV

RE: Why ? trailer jacks so tall ?

They do make tailgates with a dip in the middle that you can purchase if you want. Those are designed for 5th wheel haulers, and most I've seen are vented. Useless if you have a canopy on the truck. Longer drawbar (stinger) solves the problem.

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

I built a stabilizer post for my Fox Landing. Here's how I did the project

RE: Why ? trailer jacks so tall ?

I was thinking he may have a newer trailer with a short tongue or the placement of the jack on the frame made a difference Nope. Jacks have been in the same place on the coupler since pretty much the invention of trailer jacks. All trailers I've seen, the coupler is where the jack attaches, which means trailer tongue length is an irrelevant factor in the equation. The reason a tailgate hits a jack is because tailgates (and overall bed height) are taller on some trucks. The receiver hitch might be tucked further under the bumper and some trucks, reducing the distance between jack and the back of the truck.

Changed the fuel filter again.
