RE: question about Hughs autoformer

Have had the 50amp Hughes for over 7 years. Recommend it but cannoyt compare to other brands. I would recommend you get a 50 amp autoformer. It costs more but over the years it is minimal cost ($14 a year, over 10 years). That way no matter what power you have available, you are covered.

RE: Those of you with Tailgaters

I have not heard of anyone doing this. You may have to test and tell us.

RE: Plugged in or not..

You asked the question twice but did not tell us what model converter or inverter/charger you have. It depends on that.

RE: shore power in campgrounds

You need a voltmeter at minimum. Especially in situations where CG are under powered, of which your naked eye will not know. Even though your AC and fridge seem to run OK, you may be causing heat damage to them with low voltage. Heat damage is cumulative. It shortens the life of appliances. I would suggest Progressive Industries Power Protection. I use a Autoformer and a PI. The Autoformer helps shape available power to keep volts up to acceptable levels and the PI will shut down power to the coach for multiple reasons, one of which is volts below 104 which is the point at which damage will start accruing for major applieances. I also have a Kill-A-Watt always plugged in by the door for my own sanity, since before I had the PI.

RE: RV Credenza

We did measurements, downloaded pics & took pics to the shop that built the credenza in our last coach. This is what we ended up with. http://i.imgur.com/9Uzf0L9l.jpg This is with the table pushed in. It extended about another 14". http://i.imgur.com/NmcLNbQl.jpg Below is with table extended. http://i.imgur.com/BZpjAbxl.jpg p.s. There is 120v outlet on top and underneath.

RE: BOTH roof AC units running on a 20 amp power source?

BTW, a 20A breaker can support a 23-24A load for up to a minute. I thought it only took seconds. After some reading I see it seems exponential. the higher the amps over rating the faster it trips. 30 amps, on a 20CB, would trip in seconds where 23-24 would take a minute. Thanks. Id get the biggest cord I could find like contractors extension cords! Stay away from the dollar stores! Huh?

RE: Wi-Fi Refund

Many organizations are beginning to recognize that Internet connectivity is either a utility like water and electricity or even as a human right. This change in mentality makes for a stronger argument that if they advertise it as part of the service, than it is reasonable to expect it to work just like your water, electric or sewer hookup. With that said, I doubt that constitutes a legal breach of contract or would constitute a refund of any sort, but not giving them your business or posting bad reviews would be more of an incentive for them to hold WIFI at the same service level as electricity or water. -Next time you book, phone in as opposed using the internet to book and make sure you ask if they have WIFI, if it is available in the area you want to book and if it is currently working in that area. If not do not book and tell them why -When you arrive ask the same questions, and if their answers are no ask to be moved to an area that does have service, and if they can't make sure you let them know that you intend on posting a bad review about it -Make sure you let people you know (being as objective as possible) in these forums, on TripAdvisor etc that you liked the park for x, y and z but you disliked it because WIFI was not working/unavailable in some areas/slow in the evening etc. If it affects their bottom line and most importantly they know why, they are more likely to address the issue. X2 Excellent. Some have bought into the "Free" in the advertisements. There is no such thing as "Free" in marketing. "Free wifi" is already included in their budget and passed on to the customer in the rates. At that point "Free" is a marketing and advertising item. When advertised, it attracts customers with expectations. If it is not available, then the customers expectations, as gleaned through advertisement, is not met. If you chose a hotel that offered a free (or complimentary) breakfast, as many do to attract customers, and it was not available, what would you do? Get compensation or don't go back and tell the world. Once might be a fluke but many ratings add up to a trend. CG are commercial industries and money is the only thing that matters to them.In your free breakfast example, should I expect a refund for the night's stay if the breakfast is cold, with stuff I don't like? Or, what if I don't get down to the breakfast area until 9AM and breakfast ends at 8:30, or they run out of sausage at 8 and only have eggs, which I don't eat? Or all the tables are taken, so there is no place to eat? Is that considered "breakfast", since that is roughly the same as intermittent wifi available only at the office? You will not get money back, in most cases, BUT, you should get "Compensation". Managers have (or at least should have, the authority to give you a 50% off or free night next stay. Customer service finds a way to overcome THEIR shortcomings. This should include CG.

RE: Frivolous question but I can't find the answer......

Current models. The Allegro (not the Breeze, RED or bus) is a V10 on a F53 Chassis. The rest are diesel on various chassis, slides, floorplans and packages. I know that can be said of all brands. You need to check out the link above.

RE: BOTH roof AC units running on a 20 amp power source?

Leave it on for a while and see what burns up first. Well thought out comment, thanks for the mindless post. Not mindless at all. Blunt, yes. It got to the point which I think you got. There seems to be multiple issues here. If you are on a 20amp circuit, spiked to 22 amp draw and the CB did not break, you have a serious issue in the CB. It is not protecting you as it should. Second, if you leave that many things running on 20 amps, your volts will drop and your heat will grow in your devices. Damage is the minimum you can expect and fire is the worst. The EMS shedding the WH and fridge sounds normal. They have gas as a backup and should be low priority. 20amps can only run 1 major appliance. Your EMS will not let 2 run so your probably only getting the fan on a 2nd AC. Or your EMS is not working right.

RE: Rambler Admiral vs Coachmen Mirada -- Advice

HR is a more solidly built coach. Can you look at both of them? Look a the systems, compare the inverter to the converter. Look at the slide, the woodwork (including hinges), the floor, the toilets, water bay, electric bay, etc. I think you will see the Marada as what is referred to as an entry level. The HR is built for comfort.
