RE: Dangerous Pranks

There are dangerous pranks I read about today on RV quilters facebook page. Both happen at night. "Kids" go around closing the bar that goes in front of doors. Doing that makes it nearly impossible to open the door. Kids are also closing steps. Several people had heard about both. It happened to some of them, and one woman stepped out of her camper in the morning and fell because her steps were in. Fortunately she was not injured. I wanted to make people aware of this. Those quilters! A rowdy bunch, indeed!

RE: Onan 4500 watt portable generator ...Anyone tried one yet?

So here are my results: Running my camper with fridge on LP and water heater on LP, I fired up this generator about 9pm. Running the A/C (Atwood Air Command with a MicroAir soft start kit) Overnight lows in the upper 70's with the thermostat set at 75, so it was a pretty good test. Ran the generator about 10 hours... until about 7 o'clock the next morning. I stopped for fuel that day and topped off the gennie tank ... it took 1.5 gallons. Fuel capacity is 3.4 gallons, so it easily could have run 20 hours on a tank of gas.

RE: Can a brake controller get weaker over time?

At 15 years old, I'd be checking the brake shoes & magnets as well. The brake controller is 15 years old... The trailer is only 3. Still, I'm gonna pull it around to the driveway and give all the wiring a once-over.

RE: Onan 4500 watt portable generator ...Anyone tried one yet?

A dealer had them at Quartzite, AZ. last winter at the "RV Show'. Look at the box, memory serves me correctly it said "engineered and designed by Onan/Cummins in Indiana. Made in China. The 2500 was sitting there just purring away until somebody plugged something into it, then you could hear it on up the outside aisle. Now they say Made in Vietnam ... Same as Honda.

RE: Can a brake controller get weaker over time?

Thanks for all the replies .... I just replaced the 7way pigtail, so I'll check that ground, along with the wire connections. Also, replaced and relocated the 7-way on the truck side, so I'll recheck all that. Thanks again.

Can a brake controller get weaker over time?

I have a Tekonsha Primus brake controller which was installed in my truck when it was new in 2005. Lately it seems like it's not stopping my trailer like it should, even with the gain turned all the way up. I adjusted the brakes themselves and it helped a little, but still not grabbing like it seems like it should. I'm thinking about going to a Prodigy to see if that helps...

RE: Onan Indiana generator stalling

I had a 5500 Onan in a 2007 toy hauler and it did that. It was the fuel pump... after it cooled off, it would run again.

RE: Onan 4500 watt portable generator ...Anyone tried one yet?

I'm sure it's printed in the owners manual. For the 4500 watt model I would expect it to be similar to the 4000 watt permanent installation gas powered model. +-.33 gal/hr. @ no load +-.75 gal/hr. @ full load maybe a little more since its slightly larger capacity. Chum lee ya, I read the manual, which is always vague. I was looking for real world experience.

Onan 4500 watt portable generator ...Anyone tried one yet?

We've just started carrying the Cummins/Onan portable generators (2500 watt and 4500 watt) here at Camping World and they look like great units. Comparable noise levels to the Hondas, with more features and quite a price differential. My question is ... The 4500 sports a 3.4 gallon fuel tank and I'm wondering if anyone has real world experience as to actual run time on a tank of gas powering an A/C unit? Thanks, Al
