RE: Honda EU3200 - 15k BTU AC Unit?

As part of a running change to the popular EU-series models, the green Output LED functions as an hourmeter. When the unit is first started, the Output LED can flash based on the total number of hours of operation logged (and stored) by a circuit in the inverter. Running time Green Output LED blinking status Less than 100 hours 0 blinks after start 100 to 200 hours 1 blink after start 200 to 300 hours 2 blinks after start 300 to 400 hours 3 blinks after start 400 to 500 hours 4 blinks after start Over 500 hours 5 blinks after start Here are the serial number breaks where the feature was implemented: EU2000i AC (50-state) EAAJ-2018516 EU2000i AC1 (50-state Companion)EAAJ-2069970 EU2000i AC2 (50-state Camo) TBA EU2000i AN (49-state) EAAJ?2017305 EU2000i AN1 (49-state Companion)EAAJ-2022368 EU2000i AN2 (49-state Camo) EAAJ-2062989

RE: Just curious

Been drinking rv tank water for 50yrs. Never had an issue and never sanitized a tank. Just check the water before filling and use a filter on the hose while filling. Ditto. I almost always carry at least 1/2 a tank as IDK if there are trustworthy water sources where I'm going and more often then not I'm boondocking/dry camping without any hookups. While I will filter the city water via hose while filling the tank, I have no issue with drinking it OR ever having to "sanitize" the water system. IMHO: some folks just like to make stuff more complicated than they need to be. :) - Mark0. Same here. Filled the tank in 2006 when we bought the camper new, then only added water as needed (usually at home from well water) since then. Do nothing special for storage but try to keep it on the full side for a quick power outage water source. We do have a built-in filtered water tap so the taste is better but that's what we also use at home with the fridge since our water doesn't taste the best anyway.

RE: Would you get new tires ?

My OEM Bridgestone tires were 12-13 years old when I replaced them. They still had miles left in them and no signs of cracking but I found a large cut in the tread from a road hazard, ironically while away from home with the camper on board.

RE: 2010 Keystone Outback 210RS- can't find slideout switch!

The manual slide models have external tracks with braces that you install before you pull the slide out. There are also external latches that hold the slide in. If you don't have those it must be power.

RE: Tail light woes

If the fuses all check out it could also be the headlight switch itself. There's one contact for clearance & tail lights and another for headlights. This is how you have the first position for just "parking lights". If that contact has failed you won't get any lights. Does the dash cluster light up? Those are usually on the same circuit to be an indicator that you have no tail lights.

RE: Metal Structure on RV's Rear: What Is Its Purpose?

Looks to me like someone was practicing welding and were just getting started. It’s too light weight for a bike rack. I’m not sure what else would need to be attached and swing out/behind the trailer. Maybe a BBQ?

RE: What material is my Lance TC SHOWER made of

According to Lance's brochure for 2013, the wet bath models were fiberglass so it's likely the dry bath shower is as well.

RE: Underground 250ft run

So asking an electrical question like the OP did on an RV forum....... You'll get the same "expertise" if you ask the guys along the bar at your favorite saloon. Safe travels Yep. Some of it will be purely opinion, some will be based upon actual experience involving their local codes/inspector and still others will be actual electricians who really know their stuff. In the case of my advice it’s the first two, with access to a brother-in-law for the third if needed.

RE: Engine braking on 2017 F150 5.0L

Modern computer controlled trucks do not over rev. It's impossible because of the computer. Anybody that is worried about over reving their "modern" truck is worrying about nothing. They need to go a rev anonymous meeting. They are held at their local race track. I haven't been to any in a long time but when I did I took my 572 to 7,000 RPM time after time. And this thing has pistons as big as a small coffee can. Let it rev. Truck pulls hold these meetings too. I used to help my uncle who owned a pulling sled business. There was one local truck that had a moderately built 454 that spun 9000 RPM when pulling.

RE: Underground 250ft run

If you’re only running 120V then your neutral needs to be the same size as your hot. As others have suggested, consider one more hot wire. For the incremental cost you get 2x the power available. Even if you still use a 30A breaker, many 50A RV’s would probably be fine with only 30A available per leg. Depending upon your wire size and number of conductors, you may have to increase the conduit size. Conduit calculator Be sure to get wet rated wire with a W in the designator. Don’t forget sweeps (gently curved conduit elbows) to get into and out of the ground plus an L-box if you need to get through an exterior house wall to get to the main panel.

RE: Chaning Differental oil ???

As a person who just dropped $2,440 on a rear end rebuild I'd do it now. My oil was last changed by myself around 5 years ago and now wish I'd done it more regularly. Oil is cheap comparably. While that's true, it's also no guarantee that your rear end wouldn't have failed even with fresher oil.

RE: Engine braking on 2017 F150 5.0L

My older GM Allison tow/haul doesn't downshift unless you hold the brake for a few seconds. You can tap lightly without causing the downshift. Perhaps Ford set theirs a bit more aggressive. I do find that it takes rev'ing pretty high after the hill flattens out before the grade braking releases. I usually just turn T/H off to get it to upshift.

RE: EV alternative for light/medium duty trucks

Time for us frogs to jump out of the warming water. The latest report suggests there are only 10 years left to mitigate (not avoid) global climate change. And when that 10 years expires there will be another 10 year panic clock. This method is nothing new. It’s been going on since at least the early 70’s.

RE: Norcold N611 AC circuit

Yesterday, I noticed a problem with the romex that supplies the AC outlet in the refrigerator's outside access. A small loop of the romex was pressing slightly on a fairly sharp edge of a galvanized sheet metal brace that supports the sheet metal piece that the controls and etc of the refrigerator are mounted to. I looked at the romex, and there is a dark, sharp dent in the plastic outer jacket, maybe leaking current to the sheet metal bracket. I pulled the loop of romex away from the edge, wrapped the dent in electrical tape, and the AC refrigerator heating element is still working since then. I think that fixed the problem. The link to the Norcold Service Manual is much appreciated. Thanks to all for the electrical information and the willingness to help! Thanks for the update. I MISSED where you stated HOW it tripped. A defective Heat element would NOT trip a GFCI unless the refer was turned ON to 120 power. Doug It certainly could. The neutral side of the element is not switched and if it comes into contact with a grounded surface, the GFCI will trip even with the fridge turned off. This is no different than the neutral portion of the supply Romex touching ground. GFCI's detect a difference between hot and neutral current OR a short between neutral and ground with no power flowing.

RE: Kitchen stove fan "flap".

14 gauge Romex works perfectly. Just pull the white wire from the bundle. Then glue it along the rib at the edge and stick about 1/4” - 3/8” past the end. You can even bend it slightly to install and it will straighten as you push up on the flap. Ours has been that way for 10 years. Found a picture:

RE: T-mobile Voice mail

People still have to call in to get voicemail? My current phone has voicemail automatically loaded into the phone as playable sound files including a text translation. Even my previous (other OS) one had an app that let you get voicemail directly. No dialing or password needed.

RE: Residency and voters rights in South Dakota

Strange so many against democracy and the right to vote. Hell, Walaby wants only land owners to be able to vote. Do I see any hands for a poll tax? Hey we tried that allowing women to vote how is that working? Glad this bunch isn't writing the voting laws. You’re reading way too much into what Walaby wrote. Residence does not equal land owner and is also a perfectly common sense requirement for voting. How else do you attach one person to one vote? Seems very democratic to me. We are also a constitutional republic, not a democracy.

RE: Choices in non-basement truck campers?

I not sure what good camper options are out there but would a small travel trailer minus its axles work instead? I’ve seen those on semi tractors before.

RE: How to keep a TC from being stolen when not on the truck?

I don't worry about it. It’s not worry, it’s precaution. I lock my truck when I go to a restaurant etc. I lock my house when I leave. Sure, but you can’t stop someone with a rollback from hauling away your locked truck. That’s more likely than anyone trying to haul away a camper.
