RE: Charging batteries with a small generator

Need to determine the charge rate of your converter. Many have converters rated around 35 ampere output. This in many cases is not sufficient. Adding a separate battery charger isn't going to help much as the normal safe charge is around 10 amperes. While boondocking refer should be set on auto. When genset is running, the refer would run off 120-volts AC. 1000-watt generator maybe a little small. My thinking changing the converter to say a 50-ampere output would help.

RE: Is replacing the furnace worth it?

You should be able to replace motor and other parts without removing the furnace.

RE: Who makes the shocks?

Look for identification tag on your axles to determine who made them. Check etrailer for some. Possible Dexter

RE: Is replacing the furnace worth it?

Good chance your furnace is a Hydro Flame now Atwood Motors are fairly economical. Easy to replace. For example

RE: Is replacing the furnace worth it?

Make and model of your current furnace? Motors are readily available for most furnaces.

RE: Rte 212 from Rapid City to Garryowen

I have traveled US 212 a week or so ago. I see no reason you would have any troubles. I picked it up at Alzada, left it at Broadus

RE: Military Campgrounds

Many retirees are abusing the 14-day rule and stay at some facilities for several months. They move from one site to another at some bases and the base commander allows it.

RE: Kwikee Step

The magnet needs to be adjusted to tell the step to retract. As for the step retracting issue, I would check the connector for the control box and the two ground connections.

RE: 2005 Norcold refrigerator -- shore power not cooling

Since unit doesn't work on lp and marginal on electric, test the thermistor. Thermistor testing Potentially bad circuit board. I prefer Dinosaur Electronics replacements..

Model of your Norcold? Check fuses on circuit board Check connectors on circuit board

RE: Broken Leaf Spring

The springs should be marked. Markings should be on the right end of axles. After identifying your axles get the exact replacement for all. You could upgrade some if all other components are done.

RE: House Battery Disconnect Not Working

Diagram shows as a 40 amp which would be power to slide. The battery disconnect provides power to all items in chassis control box.

RE: House Battery Disconnect Not Working

That means the switch or wiring is issue. Remove the switch from the wall to gain access to terminals. The both sets of end pins should have 12-volts DC. Switch should have opposite corners of switch jumper to reverse voltage polarity. The center two pins should have 12-volts DC when switch is pushed. see page five for basic wiring.manual I didn't know Aloha still existed! Raised in Beaverton!

RE: House Battery Disconnect Not Working

You are having a helper push switch and hold for short time to get reading? With meter across small terminals, you will get either positive 12- volt reading or negative reading.

RE: Battery Disconnect Solenoid Fuse

RV lite is a supplier of RV custom products part number RVCV1002. RVC- 1002Appears to be a magnetically held relay Before throwing money at it, disconnect small wires from relay ant try it again. If fuse blows, then issue is switch or wiring. Fuse doesn't blow it is in relay.

RE: House Battery Disconnect Not Working

See page 5 of Service manual From page 5 There are two 5 Amp fuses for the system, mounted on each relay. Looking at the relay with cap at the top, the fuse on the right feeds the LED indicator and if so equipped, the digital voltmeter. The fuse on the left feeds the power to the switch that operates the solenoid. Use a volt meter across the small terminals. The polarity to those terminals should reverse when switch is moved from one location to the opposite. Relay should have strong click when operated and working. Use a medium size wire jumper between the large terminals. It should have small spark and system is working if 12-volt power comes on.

RE: Cody WY to Fishing Bridge RV Park - Route Challenges?

That is the best access! Biggest problem could be people! Road is a good two lane. Very curvy inside the park dropping down to Yellowstone Lake.
