RE: Danger from charging golf cart inside toy hauler??

I was happy when I put it in there/ Hopefully still happy when taking it out. https://thumbnails-photos.amazon.ca/v1/thumbnail/2-pLwpUpQ8ihTy1BVPTHrg?viewBox=1249%2C937&ownerId=A22MJRO7MCGHHH width=800

RE: App for fuel / generator storage?

I've run my Onans once a month since I first got one 15 years ago. Now my rig is parked in Florida where it will sit untouched for 6 months of the year. I'm interested to know if it will even run when I get there in November. My stick house backup generator gets run a couple of times a year but that one has a petcock and I let it run out of gas before putting it away. Same thing with the snowblower and lawn mowers.

RE: Danger from charging golf cart inside toy hauler??

Yes, there are 6 x 6V batteries. No, I didn't leave a tender on them. I charged them up fully then drove the cart into the hauler. Didn't disconnect other than cart switch off. There are no windows open but I did leave the main air conditioner on at 85F.

Danger from charging golf cart inside toy hauler??

We left our toy hauler in Florida for the first time. DW's golf cart is in the garage. I didn't hook it up to any kind of tender so I have no idea if we'll have 6 flat batteries in November or not. I was worried about hydrogen build up inside the RV. Is that a realistic concern?

RE: Not A Joke Top Off With Gasoline or Diesel

Buy CANADIAN oil, not blood oil.

RE: RGV ten year trend

My issue with RGV is that a lot of the parks are 55+. The RV park we're in now dropped its 55+ a few years ago. We're thinking of moving.

RE: Nothing Stays secure!

I wouldn't collapse the suspension completely - you're just asking for damage. Is it as simple as not putting enough wraps of strap on your ratchet? I've installed etrack and over-wheel tie downs for DW's trike. It was very difficult to access the hook points for straps. Over-wheel takes 30 seconds.

RE: What does tire date code '5317' mean?

I did not know that.

What does tire date code '5317' mean?

I was browsing some Class C's for sale and they posted a photo of the tire with this date. HUH?

RE: Atwood Furnace Problems

My furnace used to do that until I tightened all the push on spade connectors.

RE: Breaker Panel Help Please

I answered part of my own question: I looked at other photos - that's not a conduit, it's a wire nut with only one wire in it. So whatever that backwards 20A receptacle is for, it's not connected in my RV.

RE: Breaker Panel Help Please

Anybody know what the 20A receptacle on the back of the panel is for? In my photo above, the black hot appears to disappear out the left side of the panel in a small red conduit. I thought maybe for a plug-in converter, but on my rig, the converter plugs into a residential style 20A receptacle wired to a 20A breaker.

RE: Breaker Panel Help Please

I've always wondered why the DC in on my panel above has two lugs. This thread got me looking at the manual and it says that the other lugs are for battery connection. In my rig, the converter also has two lugs and one side goes to the panel and the other to the batteries. I don't suppose it makes any difference. The converter is about half way between the panel and the batteries. I guess it means they could use lighter cable because the panel - converter - batteries run is shorter than a converter - panel - batteries run.

RE: Breaker Panel Help Please

Usually, 50 amp supplies every other breaker. Not left and right sideDon't know about "usually" but his is a WFCO as is mine and there is only one bus bar to the left and one to the right. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/0LaNpQz-irD6g9mQay5vRGv5WYQS7KQ_SVp_TjWqYj0SDjAo2Asv0mamFgWx7CP2G5dGLjhOl2oP4leb4jJMGX_QOlRSotWR26FpGMPAgGE07KYy0VjpgwdSzqL1yH56MWfhf3C_CUVo60TlRg1oG3QfE32SgnEYzjG-oJuAunspQ2Pi87MoZznRI23ocHIncQ28z7VB4qaGedVXxTX9IMADoCDR9H9_epErzW3MAnl-_csB-Btcz75HOxWBxzLLRwxc2ujrQEajS7MFsp_rSM-dBvLvAABN2inDhQ2ov-q-fjt1hahsZkCgQCqb1jUeUW34zgbDezyE2Dj6EV_hmQqk2TV57zv3SaGysNIx_fn6XUfvEs3g8A2-HcDswYGnP25G9bq5QXcFCw4bxBDOj36lr5GNywC5l3_EQSqZVm1H27hafXk9dwXcifgcMJtHFGWyckQBYhF8p4l1u0OhAHek1ylxfua5CAPNHamF4AaQeKRX5O8HVBLt4BwjriRjKOhh2DB0hsItCKWM3hT7bQOYQlerkrNus_JRgE2qj3HSOs19iG84tNuSxVlMUIPXxdtxVtyJoIUT9y3uJSzgTW2-V-v3DnJspVW59408Pv3yWwR3GDySPAtKxtPHIHhhHiDWqxq-8dfgP-KICG9qZ8CVfgNntNErLhIAZHRtJol_9dqq=w1250-h937-no width=800

RE: Breaker Panel Help Please

You have 50A service (double breaker in the middle). One of the hots goes to the left breakers and the other goes to the right. Can't imagine any reason other than human error that all the right breakers are off. Fuse 13 says "waterheat". Your heater needs 12V when running on propane.

RE: Dorian

....we ask you to write your name and SSN on your arm - presumably to aid with identification. Wonder if anyone asked them what nonUSA guests should use instead of SSN. SIN
