RE: Motorhome drinking oil

Next oil change make sure you check the level immediately after to verify the full mark. Slight overfill can burn more oil. Fill by capacity specification not the stick.

RE: Was rear ended on the highway

I asked insurance about hotel they told me that they don’t provide that I could keep the receipts and try to get it back from the other insurance . With this statement I would at least consult an attorney.

RE: High mile gas engine trucks

200,000 on my 5.4L. Out for a 1200 mile drive right now. I would take this vehicle anywhere any distance without worry.

RE: Wheel bearings

These bearings are old school basic line work. If you have done them before you will find nothing new today. Any auto parts store should have the bearings if replacement is needed. If the new kid is confused holler back for the old guy to match them up. I use Mobil 1 synthetic grease for the highest dropping point specification. For parts, video and advice look to etrailer.com

RE: Which Progressive Dynamics Converter/Charger To Buy

What sort of battery do you have? Do you ever expect a fast charge from a generator? What size wire connects to the battery? Otherwise I recommend a PD9260

RE: Jacking up a Fifth Wheel

I bought four 12 ton jack stands at Harbor Freight. Used my floor jack with cribbing to do the lift.

RE: Tow Vehicle Tire Pressure

Door on mine says 36. I run 40F 45R towing or not. Only time I might air down would be if the off-road conditions dictate.

RE: 100 amp service

30a = 3600 watts 50a = 12000 watts I assume 100 amps would be 24000 watts My home is 200 amps and 48000 watts Too bad 3-phase service is not really available to retail consumers. 3-phase motors run so much better without start issues etc.

RE: Converter noise

Converter is making a high pitched squeal. Think its the fan. Are they serviceable?Probably if you mean to replace the fan. What converter model number?

RE: Gas TV for a year long trip

I live out west and have a similar weight fifth wheel and I wouldn't be very happy with a gas truck - going uphill or down. That said, a gas truck will certainly pull that weight without causing any damage barring road rage from somebody who gets stuck behind you on a long two lane ascent with no passing lanes. 450 HP vs 385 HP pulling 10,500 GVWR trailer is not going to put you in road rage situation. FUD meter is pegged.

RE: Using Propane while traveling in BC - Not Legal

I see a safety brochure on recommended practices. I don't see a government vehicle code requirement.

RE: Generator with Surge Guard 34830

Inverter generator should be very low risk. Standard generator with a voltage regulator has a small risk of malfunction and allowing output voltage to be out of range.

RE: Need help about surge protection

The SG 35550 should serve you well in most conditions. Curious what model the portable was... Just surge protection or full EMS protection?

RE: Solar Charging

Usually a load control is not used in the RV world. Timer is probably to set a cut off for some lights that go all night. RV does not use this. Picture is fuzzy but I believe the timer controls the load terminals.

RE: 100 amp service

I thought "50 amp" pedestals were commonly wired on a 200 to 400 amp loop. Each outlet is protected per rating at the pedestal. Loop is protected at the main panel.

RE: Solar Charging

Controller will provide a very small but persistent draw on the battery even when off. A second switch between the controller and battery is good if stored without power for an extended period. Use the panel switch first. Many controllers can be damaged if fed solar power and not connected to a battery. Connected to a battery and no solar is no issue or there would be trouble every night. For all the effort I would look at a new controller if this one does not operate as expected.

RE: Solar Charging

I recommend a switch between the PV Array and DC/DC to stop charging.

RE: 1979 dodge mobile traveler 360cl wont pass emissions

CO is the air/fuel mixture. Need a good carburetor adjustment or better just get a new one.

RE: A simple idea

For me the spotter is just to signal stop if we're are about to hit something.

RE: Fridge On Propane Battery Amp Hr Draw??? How Much

My trailer draws 500 milliamps at idle including the fridge cycled on, propane detector and radio memory. That would be 12 amp hours per day. Get at least twice what you need to avoid going under 50% when possible. If you have a fridge humidity switch... that needs to be off. Could always get a meter and measure what your RV draws. We can only estimates and guesses.
