RE: Campground Question

I agree with the OP. He paid for it and it was his for the duration. When he was shown to the site and it was designated as his for two days, there was a perimiter set for his occupation. He was entitiled to come and go all he wanted through the rental period. Now, he could have left something in the sight, which usually works, but who's to blame when, upon his return, it is missing and someone is in his sight. Though not obligated, he could have stopped by the office and let them know he was coming back, but again, not an obligation. The real frustration has to be that when faced with someone else in your site, which you paid for, the on duty clerk take a ho-hum attitude. As someone else said earlier, good customer service, with at least what appeared to be a sincere appology, probably solved this quickly. BTT, Write that letter to the CG owner. The owner may not know what is going on and that the service was less than desirable.

RE: Are large gas motor Rv's underpower?

At the risk of getting someone angry for me asking the same question they don't want to see again, that no doubt some people feel has been discussed enough. Not irritatated, but yes. It has been asked and answered many times. Are gas Class A's underpowered to tow a toad in any area with mountains or large hills. No. See my sig. We go from WA to IL and LA regularly, with toad and do well. I have read people with gassers say that they are powerful enough for them to tow a toad anywhere. And I have read that no gas motor Class A has the power and that you need a diesel motor. Sounds like unfounded opinion and contrary to what we do regularly. What is the truth, not opinion on this? This is my truth. You have to decide what is not true or what is unfounded opinion, for yourself.

RE: Low voltage at campgrounds? I found the solution.

Pedestal to Hughes autoformer to PI to ATS. Works great. I am really glad to see that there are not a lot of autoformer bashers out tonight.

RE: Two Similar 12V battery in parallel and other questions

To answer some of the questions,.....hook them in parallel,.....less chance you will run them down beyond the 50% rule. If you use more power than 50%, charge them,...one way or another, even if connecting jumper cables from TV. x2 50% is 12.24v. If they get less than that, you are sucking the life out of them

RE: Setup/Takedown Checklist

Welcome and congrats. Turn off the electricity, at the pole, before plugging in and unplugging, to avoid arcing.

RE: AC or generator???

Turn your water heater off. Or switch it to propane. WHAT??? What makes you think I have my water heater on? DUH! Mick. This does not encourage help. There is no way we know your experience and what a "Duh" moment is. There are bound to be a number of what you think are "Duh" questions because to help we need to know a baseline. Do you have or have you added an electric water heater element? If you have one, is the WH set to LP? Have you turned off the converter? Is all 110v eaters turned off? Have you added any power cords? Have you looked at them to see if they are burnt or melted?

RE: converter questions

Once you verify that the magic smoke has really left the coach, call Randy @ www.bestconverter.com. He will help you fit the best, current converter for your rig and use. Great help.

RE: running ac or micro unit on tt while parked at home ??

Do not go below 104 watts, period. That is when heat damages start to occur. Get a (digital plugin meter) Kill-A-Watt.

RE: sewer valves

Agree with Black tank closed. You can leave the grey open until, let's say, the day before you leave, so you can shower freely, wash clothes, etc, than capture a tank of grey to rinse after the black is dumped. I would leave all valves closed while gone.

RE: Our First Motorhome

Put plenty of water in first. 3-5 gals. Do you have a tank flush in your wet bay? If so, use it to finish filling the tank. Once it reaches full and the wife yells it out the window to you), leave it on when you pull the black valve and wait ffor the water to get clear. Close the black valve and let the flush run for a couple minutes to add water for the next trip. At the end of the season, after the last dump, I use calgon liquid water softener to clean the tank. I add 6 OZ and fill the tank with the flush. This helps free deposits and clean the tank.

RE: Our First Motorhome

Our rig is a 2003 Coachman Cross Country Elite. It's 36'6" and seems to fit us well. In retrospect a bedroom slide would have been nice but not mandatory. Nice rig. Sounds like you have a good handle on what you are doing. . . . and didn't have to dump the tanks again. I would not let a sludge sit in the black tank for long. We dump after every trip.

RE: RV park free wired internet good for only 1 laptop question

More info needed. What is the park providing? If they are providing the modem for a single hookup, you need a switch. Unless they are doing a single MAC then you need a router. If they are requiring a web browser sign on after connection to the WIFI network, you need a router in which you can assign a MAC. There is also the software option of Connectify. Find out what the CG provides and their rules.

RE: Route Planning Software for Android

A quick search of Amazon found this: Dell Venue 8 Pro 32 GB Tablet (Windows 8.1) for $199. That looks interesting and very decent price. Will it run Streets & Trips? Note: Street & Trips will no longer be produced by MS. I already own multiple copies of Streets & Trips. So do I but wanted all to know that this is not a long term solution as S&T will become dated, unsupported and may not work well on future OS (like Win 10 or 11 or 12). Near term, I will keep using mine.

RE: Ventilating fan

There are various choices and it depends on how much work you want to do. The easiest is the VORTEX FANS. They screw right into the bottom. I have not used the Vortex II but the Vortex (I) is noisy enough that I would not use it in any place other than the bath and then not if it is right next to an etertainment area. My pref. is the FANTASTIC FAN. Quiet and plenty of air movement. Takes about 2 hours to remove the old vent, on the roof, and replace it witht e FF. You will need putty knife, screwdriver and DICOR self-leveling lap. Think about putting the FF vent covers on while doing this. They work great for the FF to open up completely. Good luck and have fun.

RE: Which dog ramp for class A mh?

I have a Chihuahua who can get in my 5th wheel which now has a 4 high step up. The Tuscany has a 2 high step up, and I find it hard to imagine that a large dog is not capable of getting in. You have not seen a large dog with arthritis in hips. It is either a ramp or lift. Yes the dog will give it all she/he has and it is not fun to watch the failure. Absolutely correct.

RE: If RV fridge works does this mean the converter is working?

If RV fridge works does this mean the converter is working? No. As stated above, you need to get a voltmeter and check.
