RE: Generator vapor locking

You can get the fuel pump on Amazon for around $30. Let us know what you ultimately find to be the problem and good luck. Thanks. The cheap ones seem to be off brands. I wanted to go with the Airtex because they are the ones that supply Onan with the fuel pumps. However, if the oil pressure switch doesn't fix it I may just go with the he cheap pimp for now and see how it does. If it does fix it then I will get the better pump when it becomes available. Yeah, I know what you mean. The last cheap one I bought only lasted 7 years. Pure junk.

RE: AC went out after getting unplugged?

What kind of thermostat? What kind of RV? What kind of a/c? What kind of shore power? We'll need a little information to be of any assistance.

RE: Class A V-10 mileage

Oddly, running the generator likely won't even change your mileage numbers unless you're calculating to a couple decimal places. It only burns around 1/3 GPH and at 60 MPH you're already burning around 10GPH.

RE: Generator vapor locking

You guys are aware this is the Generator engine right? The generator runs In completely different parameters than the vehicle engine. Well, I know it's been said several times already and I know you don't want to think it's the problem but your description of the problem indicates that you have an oil pressure issue. Either from low oil level, high oil level, wrong oil or bad oil pressure sensor. I usually do the easy stuff first. The generator needs to be level when checking and just because the motorhome is level doesn't mean the generator is level. Also, are you screwing the dipstick in to check it or just sticking it in and pulling it out? It makes a difference.

RE: Can I use a WDH on a DP

.............. I don't think this is a true statement. WD hitches do not change the tongue weight. They just redistribute that tongue weight among the available axles. If your tongue weight is 1400 pounds with a regular hitch it will still be 1400 pounds with a WD hitch. It will just be carried by different axles but there will still be 1400 pounds on the ball. The only solution to the OP's problem is to move some weight further back in the trailer or move the trailer axle further forward. I could be wrong but I don't think so. If weight is moved to the axles, it must come off the hitch. In other words, the total weight of the vehicle and trailer do not change so if you move some of the weight to an axle, it must be reduced from the hitch. I'm not going to spend a lot of time debating the point because it's about the same as getting into a discussion about RV shore power wiring. You can certainly do all the google research you want. Here's one "experts" explanation. https://www.etrailer.com/question-180152.html Weight is not "moved to the axle" from the ball. As soon as you connect the trailer the tongue weight is on the rear axle. Moving some of it to the front axle doesn't lighten the tongue, it just lightens the rear axle. All a WD hitch does is move tongue weight from one axle to another. What used to be carried by the rear axle can be moved to the front axle or trailer axle. But it stays on the hitch ball. The tongue doesn't magically get lighter. Simple physics dictates that all weight on the tongue of a trailer is carried by either the towing vehicle axles or by the trailer axles. Moving some of that weight from a front axle to a rear axle does not change the amount of that weight. It's still all on the tongue. It's a very common misconception that WD hitches lighten the tongue weight. But it's still wrong. .

RE: Can I use a WDH on a DP

a wdh will increase you tongue weight capability. most hitches will have a tag on them telling you what the limit is with and without the wdh. I don't think this is a true statement. WD hitches do not change the tongue weight. They just redistribute that tongue weight among the available axles. If your tongue weight is 1400 pounds with a regular hitch it will still be 1400 pounds with a WD hitch. It will just be carried by different axles but there will still be 1400 pounds on the ball. The only solution to the OP's problem is to move some weight further back in the trailer or move the trailer axle further forward. I could be wrong but I don't think so.

RE: 15 Amp Service

15 amp is pretty simple as long as the weather is not very hot or very cold. Just pay attention and you'll be fine. If you have an EMS just manually set it down to 15 amp service and let it regulate the load if not then that task will fall on you. If you trip the breaker just reset it and go on. Someone suggested using a plastic bag in the toilet. For the life of me I can't figure out how that conserves electricity. :?

RE: Wanna bring a golf cart and a Jeep towed

My 2017 Wrangler JKU weighs 4940 on the CAT scale. You must have some aftermarket stuff added - stock weight for the JKU is around 4400 lbs... Fuel and a couple of folding bikes and hard top. Don't know what the brochure/internet says but I do know what it scaled out on the CAT.

RE: Why no continuous furnace fan option?

I installed a switch that allows me to turn on the furnace fan constantly if I want. It involved some splicing and wiring inside the furnace unit. I only use it to keep the basement above freezing when necessary. It's a pretty simple mod if you can read an electrical schematic.

RE: Xantrex Fredom 458 series inverter/charger 20 amp

If a 458 is connected up with improper battery polarity, for even 1 second, it is now toast. Xantrex may be able to repair it but there are no reverse polarity protection devices in a 458.

RE: Wanna bring a golf cart and a Jeep towed

Lot of folks with a lot of ideas that ignore weight and towing capacity. My 2017 Wrangler JKU weighs 4940 on the CAT scale. I imagine a Rubicon is probably more. On just about every gas motorhome, once you hook up a 4940 pound Jeep you're out of tow capacity and there's no way to haul more.

RE: Windshield Shades

I looked at the MagnaShade and I'm sure it's a good shade. However, for about the same cost ($700) of a MagnaShade for the windshield I was able to get SunGaurd shades for the windshield, 4 tire covers and covers for every other window on my Canyon Star plus 2 mirror covers and 2 windshield wiper covers. I opted for the turn button attachments instead of the snaps and I really like them. They stay put in any wind and I have every single window in the motorhome covered not just the windshield. Takes me about 10 minutes on the ladder to put them up. It did take a few hours to do the initial installation but wasn't difficult at all. And they didn't include an implanted medical device warning.
