RE: Electrolysis

I wish you had been working at Fleetwood when they designed my 2001 American Coach. The basement compartment walls were framed out with steel tubing and filled in with foam and plastic. Then the piece de resistance, they covered the whole bottom of the basement with a sheet of aluminum!! Talk about wizard engineering. Needless to say, the aluminum sheet and the steel framework got along well together for about 3 years and all of a sudden the steel tubing made it's way through the aluminum sheet and saw roadway and water which it sucked up and used to corrode itself away. The steel tube framework had to be completely replaced and a new bottom installed. I chose galvanized sheet this time rather than aluminum. I was talking with a Fleetwood engineer at a rally one time and asked if I could meet the guy responsible for that engineering marvel. He said, "he doesn't work for us anymore"

I'm with MEX on this one but I'm going to subscribe anyway just to see where it goes.

RE: What happened to RV.NET?

"What happened to RV.NET?" An ancient platform, what appears to be an overloaded server or bandwidth issue, and possibly an IT department that quit continuing education when the Commodore 64 was all the rage. At least they have the consistency covered, the errors occur with Firefox, Chrome, Edge, even IE if you have that antique still installed. That is my guess. Service Temporarily Unavailable! The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later.

RE: 6 volt battery post melted

:) Hi, melted connections are not caused by a short; They are caused by a poor connection. A heavy load with a poor connection creates heat. Hmmm, I seem to recall from basic electricity that a short is a pretty heavy load. (Load being defined as amps)

RE: Shore Power Question -- (15A+30A=45A)

They work fine if all you need is 15 (or 20) amps from one side, and 30 amps from the other side. Remember, a 50 amp service is actually 100 amps, 50 amps on each of two legs.

RE: Help Identifying things in my RV

Do your slides make a beeping noise when going out or in? If so, might be that alarm.

RE: coronavirus...put it into perspective

Here is another perspective: The US has a population of about 327 million people. As of today there is approximately 26,000 people with diagnosed COVID 19. That means there is one confirmed case out of every 12,000+ people. Even if the the number of undiagnosed carriers is 10 times greater than than the number of confirmed cases it still means that less than one out of every thousand people are infected. It is very likely that the death rate will fall as testing becomes more widespread. Currently, testing is only being done on those with symptoms and is focused on the severely ill (which is the correct action, since the severely ill need intensive care and the symptomatic need to isolate themselves completely). But as we increase the denominator of virus positive individuals through expanded testing, the fatality rate will decline. One of the best things that can happen is there to be a large population of infected people who had no symptoms and subsequently recovered. They are what will create a herd immunity and eventually stop the spread of the disease. It is the same as setting back fires to control wildfires. Just like back fires create areas that cannot burn, asymptomatic people who have recovered create large areas where there is no one left to get sick and spread the disease. There is anecdotal evidence this is already occurring, but there is really no way to know since it is impractical, and probably unwise, to test large numbers of people who show no outward signs of the virus. Hopefully our government leaders will be able to manage the tightrope walk between illness prevention and the economy. The last thing we want is the economic damage to continue far past the health impacts of the virus. In the long run that could cause far more harm, both physically and mentally than the virus. Certainly one of the best written posts on this thread! One thing concerns me and that is the comment about "herd immunity". Some evidence indicates this virus may not be subject to immunity. Not saying it is, just saying "might be". That could lead to long term problems. Hopefully it is proven to be inaccurate.

RE: coronavirus...put it into perspective

Diabetes can be mitigated by less beer and ice cream. Yes, that does put it in perspective, but we don't simply refuse to deal with things that have the potential to kill people because other things kill more people. Interesting comment considering: How many car deaths in the US each year? For 2016 specifically, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) data shows 37,461 people were killed in 34,436 motor vehicle crashes, an average of 102 per day. In 2010, there were an estimated 5,419,000 crashes, 30,296 deadly, killing 32,999, and injuring 2,239,000. What, specifically, are we doing to reduce those numbers such as shutting down roads as a similar example. The amazing thing is that next year there will be a vaccine for covid-19, but next year we will once again kill 37000 people with cars. Or are vehicles exempt from your comment because they are necessary.

RE: Inverter Installed - Open Ground?

First question - is any of this a concern? YES Second question - why is it still registering "open ground"? Taken at face value, assume it is because there is still an open ground, from the outlet to the inverter chassis Third question - if I do need to ground it, how do I do so? Assuming the outlet is fed directly from the inverter with appropriate wiring type such as romex, it is likely there is a ground wire in the romex. Insure the ground wire is attached at both ends, the outlet at one end and the inverter chassis at the other end.

RE: Chesapeake Bay bridge and tunnel Maryland

I did it. 40' diesel with jeep in tow. No problem except with my wife. She was afraid a boat would sail over us when in the tunnel. Not sure what that would cause, but she was freaked!
