RE: Homeless people coming to your favorite campground!

This Czar guy should learn to use paragraphs so his text is readable without undue effort. There's reasoning behind their use. When I see a huge blob of text like his I pass it by. "The Russian Revolution happened when the peasants found out the Czar was really the Tsar." Woody Allen Irish, I am so sorry, I was concentrating on the message content, spelling, grammar, ensuring I don't offend anyone and missed how the carriage return dropped when I pasted the text. For you, here it is again with the paragraphs: It is interesting to read these comments. I understand what flyboy is saying. Some people think that he is uncaring and they suggest they would embrace these homeless people he is writing about. That may be but I am not talking the "homeless" people that live in their RVs. I understand they are people that are most likely honest, trustworthy and overall good people. I live in Los Angeles and here there are probably more true homeless people than the population of many of your home towns. For those of you, I do not imagine you truly understand the problem. There is filth, crime, drugs and fear instilled on others who are simply passing by the person/encampment. I am tired of it everywhere I go. To mention it as flyboy has causes others to say he is intolerant among other names. For you here are some of my thoughts. Here the governing officials decided to give free needles to facilitate the "safe" use of drugs, allowed recreational drugs to be sold and provide subsidies to many. A bureaucracy was expanded to support this (all of which I completely disagree with). This is funded by taking money (aka taxes and fees) from the majority of us out there. So now there is a problem that was at least partly created by these policies and the solution is more money to clean things up, cost of increased crime, direct expenses to get these folks off the street (vouchers, subsidies and in some cases free nights in hotels). Again this is on our dime on top of the money they already took from us to expand the problem in the first place. I understand hard times. My wife and I are both immigrant families. Don’t do drugs. We have both worked our entire life, me starting with a paper route. We both have had unexpected times of unemployment. We even moved back in with my Mother at one point to give us a chance to save money to buy a house. Once we bought a house, we did not use it as an ATM (equity loan) to buy things we "needed". We did not buy the Lexus and Mercedes but instead a Hyundai. Things were not always easy but we made it through. We give to our church that does many outreaches, give to charities that provide assistance to those who need it and want it. Now we are in a position where we are comfortable. I believe it is due to choices we have made and being blessed. I have family members who quit their jobs because they did not want to deal with the BS (without a new job), do drugs where it impacts their ability to function, spend money way beyond their means, etc. That is fine if they do BUT they need to accept the consequences of their actions if things go bad. It is not my responsibility to now bail them out. I know there are exceptions out there but generally decisions have consequences. In the same way I am tired of government officials having the ability to take my money and use it for their programs and initiatives I totally disagree with. Create a problem then take more money to fix the problem they created. Then people label me if I dare voice my opinion in opposition. I have tried to rationally try to explain the other side. Many others have expressed their opinion that is different from mine. While I may completely disagree with yours, I respect your ability to express it without labelling you. I would expect the same respect in return. PS. Caveman Charlie is a standup guy

RE: Bad inverter, rewire new one?

This is just an inverter. Model wfco wf-5110. For ease of replacement thinking of using same. No separate transfer switch needed to install. I like the current setup since no need to do anything when going from traveling to shore power as it automatically switches over. The reason I am proposing the plug is if in the future it breaks again it is a simple plug change behind the inverter and fridge is back in business. I currently have no access to the plug behind the fridge without removing the fridge

Bad inverter, rewire new one?

Ok so it appears my inverter with bypass died. It has a hard wired 120v output and a standard 120v input that has a standard 3 prong plug (in addition to the 12v input). The plug has an outlet nearby that it is plugged into. When the RV is plugged into shore power the inverter is bypassed and the 120v is just a pass through. So I am going to replace the inverter and thought I would wire a 3 prong female to the inverter and a male to the wire going to the outlet in the coach (powering the fridge). I would plug these together under normal operation. If the inverter dies in the future I could simply plug the male plug I added and plug into the outlet the inverter is now plugged into. I realize I would no longer have inverter capabilities but would maintain power to the fridge while on shore power. My question is to the electrical experts, is there a problem with replacing the hardwired output with the plug/outlet as explained above? Thanks
