RE: Vent fans and a/c at the same time

Ok. I know some fans can be run with the vents closed and this acts as a ceiling fan. Otherwise with the AC fan running the air doesn't have a chance to stagnate and get hot.

RE: Hard wired surge protector

Thanks again everyone. So it sounds like the best place to install it is before the ATS? And i was thinking after seeing plenty of failed RV plugs both supply cable and pedestal that I think I will keep it hard wired instead of making it easy to unplug and bypass. No need to make any more failure points than needed. At least that is my thinking.

Sorry, but I don't understand what you are saying or asking!

RE: shield for towed car

The OP is talking about the shield that attaches to the cars base plate! Not the rear rock guard under the RV

RE: Back hurting from bed in travel trailer - need advice please

I just used egg crate foam material from a fabric store. Turned my old mattress from what yours is to very comfortable.

RE: Hard wired surge protector

Ok thanks again. And just to clarify, the ones that plug into the pedestal are a one time failure! Meaning they have to be replaced when they do their job.

RE: Hard wired surge protector

Actually I think the Progressive HW50C may be the only one that can be repaired and I have heard of them sending free replacement parts . I installed mine myself just after the elect power reel . With the same fear of being with out power if something went wrong I wired it with receptacles and plugs so I can unplug it and bypass it all together . Its been several yrs now and I have never needed to do that . It has a remote panel that reads the volts and amps on each leg that is very handy . I mounted it in the bay with my power cord so I can see if the power is ok before closing the door. Progressive HW50C is my recommendation . Yes that is one of the reasons I’m leaning toward the hardwired version. I read that it is repairable and it has the remote mount to monitor voltage. I’ll have to look into making it so I can unplug from it and bypass it off ever needed.

Hard wired surge protector

Hello. So I'm considering a surge protector for next year. I'm leaning towards a hard wired version, Progressive Industries HW50C. However I have read that when they fail. You lose all power in the coach. Not sure as I'm new to surge protectors. Which brings up a question. Where would be the best place to wire it in? Sounds like at the panel is where it should be wired in. But if it fails I have no power. I was thinking if I wired it in before the ATS then if it did fail I would still be able to get power from the generator. I haven't ruled out an inline protector, but have read that when they do end up protecting the RV they cannot be repaired and need to be replaced. This is all new to me, so please enlighten me!

RE: “I was shocked with just how white it was there,” she said.

No, they are trying to find ways to reach out to untapped market. As I said. I'm sure that market knows about RVing and camping but maybe they don't want anything to do with it. I know there are a lot of people that know about RVing but don't want anything to do with it!

RE: “I was shocked with just how white it was there,” she said.

I don't want to get involved. Not in my backyard. It's not my problem. It doesn't concern me. I'm just doing my job. I'm just following orders. Only bad comes from burying your head in the sand. I'm sure glad there were people willing to get involved in years past to give me the opportunities that I would otherwise have been denied. I owe it to them to do so for others. ???? They are trying to help people that aren’t even asking for help. Like the old joke of a Boy Scout helping a little old lady cross the street. “Thanks but I live in the side where I was at!”

RE: Diminshed Value Claims

No. That’s why you inspect it thoroughly. What if the one without the accident wasn’t maintained properly. I would take the one properly repaired and maintained properly over the non accident one that wasn’t taken care of. You can’t just buy a car based on a history report. Like I said, you don't understand the meaning of diminished value. What you're talking about is standard valuations based on conditions which has nothing to do with a diminished value accident claim. You need to answer the question asked without throwing in conditions that have nothing to do with the subject. To make it easier, lets do it an even easier way: You go to a dealer and there are two identical new cars on the lot. Same make, model, year, trim, miles, options, color everything. The price tag on both are exactly the same. However, one of the two was involved in a lot accident (rolled off carrier into a barrier) but was repaired by that dealer in their collision center. Would you be willing to pay the exact same amount for the damaged (repaired) car that is being asked for the pristine unblemished car? That is the diminished value question. Yes, as long as the repaired car was done properly. Like I said, it’s all in the inspection. I know repaired cars that are put together better after an accident than before.

RE: Diminshed Value Claims

Diminished value is a joke. So if I had an accident that damaged a front axle on a vehicle or a fender. And it was replaced with new? How is the vehicle worth any less? The vehicle is repaired to how it was before the accident. So how is it now worth less? The only way it would be worth less is if the repair wasn’t done properly and corners were cut. I don't think you understand the meaning of diminished value. Try this, you go looking for a vehicle. You find two of the exact same year, make, model, color, miles, etc., etc. They both drive and were maintained in same shape. Now, you pull a vehicle history report and notice that one has an adverse notation of "Accident - Front End - Major" showing. Are you saying you would not value the one without the accident higher and the one with the accident lower? No. That’s why you inspect it thoroughly. What if the one without the accident wasn’t maintained properly. I would take the one properly repaired and maintained properly over the non accident one that wasn’t taken care of. You can’t just buy a car based on a history report.

RE: seat covers

I used The Seat Shop for my 02 Excursion. Perfect fit and you could not tell the difference! I only replaced the drivers seat bottom. After a while the new look of the lower started to match the seat back that was in perfect shape. Still looked good when I sold it after 5 years of use.

RE: Seen in the campground: mega generator rear-rack

Why not an exterior dog kennel. ^ a possibility that also occurred to me. Then it wouldn’t be that heavy and it wouldn’t need the extra axle.

RE: “I was shocked with just how white it was there,” she said.

Middle aged white guy here thinking out loud. If I checked into a campground that was 95% black would I feel uncomfortable and out of my comfort zone......... Then you haven’t been to Indiana beach! I was and I can tell you the minority is well shown there! I have no problem with it, but others might. As I said, it’s a group looking for an issue so they can come up with a solution to something that isn’t a problem!!!

RE: Towing

If you get into an accident while towing that much over your weighted limit your insurance company will probably tell you to get lost !! Granted, they may tell you to get lost, if they even have a clue as to weight being a factor or for maybe not wanting to renew your policy next time, but they will have to pay, regardless. "...but they will have to pay, regardless." I wouldn't be so sure about that. Have you ever read your contract/policy with your insurance carrier? Most people don't and that can be a GIANT mistake. You need to take a look at your contract/policy for its defined "exclusions" of coverage. You might look for the exclusion that states something to the effect of "bodily injury or property damage reasonably expected to arise out of an intentional act." Reasonably expected would include exceeding certified posted limits. You think that these insurance companies spend the time and money they do having 60 or so pages drawn up by their staff attorneys so they don't cover themselves? Think again. Unfortunately, Trumpet Player is correct. I work for insurance companies as an engineering consultant, and I can not tell you how many times I've seen claims turned down because of willful negligence on the insured. Al You mean like knowingly speeding or turning right on red?

RE: Diminshed Value Claims

Why are you going for diminished value? Is the repair not complete or proper? Repaired properly the coach should be in the same condition it was before the accident! Hence still worth the same amount as before the claim.
