RE: Battery Isolater concerns

That appears to be a simple BIRD. Bi directional relay delay. Do a search and you will be reading all day. There are several devices such as this one available.

RE: Cant see GPS in sun

Sounds crazy but try this (if you are using polarized sunglasses). Looking through your glasses and rotate them to the right then rotate to the left. One direction will black out the screen the other will lighten the screen up. The GPS screen is polarized in a different direction than your sunglasses than the GPS. Yes, wasn't that a bright idea, or not? I have to keep mine turned almost 45 degrees to see it. Try it and I think you will be surprised.

RE: Dometic defrost failure code

It should come with a sticky back already.

RE: CA licensing

Now, if you want to muddy the water further. Ask someone how to measure a Class A length. You will get plenty of different answers in the same office.

RE: CA licensing

RV over 40 feet requires class B non commercial. There are plenty of threads on that. Over a certain weight for 5th wheels needs a different license. It should be in the handbook posted.

RE: California hwy 299

Route to 101: Take Highway 20 West out of Williams off I5 for 37.1 miles. Watch for Highway 53 as you drop down a hill after a fairly long climb. Easy climb and multiple lanes. Turn what would be South onto 53. You will go about 8 miles. Look for the sign to Highway 29 which leads to Kelseyville. This is a nice road and will become freeway in a few miles. Eventually you are back to two lane for a short distance and will come to a stop sign. You are back to Highway 20 again. This leg is about 30 miles. Turn left and enjoy the beautiful drive right to 101. This route will bypass the two lane twisting and winding on the North side of Clear lake. If you want a good view of the lake go ahead and stay on 20 all the way to 101. Take the ramp towards Willits. Once in town stay in the left lane and be patient. Traffic can back up a bit. You will come to a large intersection that has a shopping center on the right and fuel stations on three corners.

RE: ISL DPF, frequent regens

They tried to clean mine on my 08 and it cracked. Based on the dumpster full of them it seems it is common. Mine only had about 17K miles on it. Were the regens running for a long time while driving? If you decide to have it cleaned or replaced be sure they do any ECM updates. Mine regens kind of oddly now and have it seen it take nearly an hour a couple of times.

RE: Best multimeter

If you are a weekend troubleshooter I would pass on the AC clamp on meter. A DC clamp on meter is going to be used more often. A Fluke multimeter is fantastic. You can get a clamp on DC meter that has the voltmeter functions built in. I keep mine hanging on a nail with the probes dangling so I can take measurements on things on my work bench. So one meter does it all. Keep a cheap "analog" meter too. One that has a needle swing that is. You can get fooled by a digital meter so cross referencing with the cheapie unit will help sometimes.

RE: battery charging

Sheesh, doesn't anyone read my posts?? There is all the information you need on the bond/ground issue. A simple plug should make the Honda behave itself with the RV system.

RE: battery charging

It is big enough but something in your coach does not play well with the Honda. I have seen this issue but did not get to pursue the resolution. Something with the ground etc. Not much help but the 2000 is plenty to charge things. You need to turn AC's off of course and put the HWH on propane to keep the load down. Check this out neutral/ground issue

RE: Solenoid as Battery Disconnect?

Picture=137209718&filters=1&sort=1&o=0]Picture Rustycampercamps this is the KISS method. Keep It Simple Silly. Yep, solenoids are great fun and it will take you many hours to install one. If you are not up to speed it could cause more problems than it resolves. The simple "knife switch" would get my vote all day.

RE: Honda- Ford 4 down tow

Certain models of the Ford Edge CAN be towed four down and the mileage does not add on. I have a 2012 Front Wheel drive Limited version. Keyless entry, adaptive cruise, etc.

Have you cleaned the coils? I mean both sets of course.

RE: Induction Cooktop Suggestions

I wore out one Nu Wave. Have two of them and they are amazing.

RE: only 1/2 of the AC outlets have power

Gfi needs voltage to test or reset. Very likely one of the two breakers on your inverter. Common problem.

RE: Best lube for grey tank and black tank valves

I like the idea above, but it would be nice to better understand the exact location of the screw lubrication hole. Another thing to consider is always avoid the ethylene glycol rv antifreeze which is cheaper and causes the rubber valves to dry out because of its alcohol content. You want to look for the propylene glycol rv antifreeze which will help the valves little bit with lube. Where the metal rod goes in and out, split the distance to the edge. That is about 1.5 inch away from the plunger rod. This is along the front skinny face. Not along the wide side but it would probably work there too.

RE: Best lube for grey tank and black tank valves

I can't find the link to the fantastic solution. Simple enough to explain. Drill a small hole on the face of the slide out valve near the rod. The face meaning the area where the T handle lives. Spray some silicon lube inside the small hole. Exercise the vavle. When done, just put in a small screw to plug the hole. I had some stainless ones so don't need to worry about rust. These valves are smoother than when new.

RE: Lakeland Fla. area

I live next door in Auburndale. There are lots of RV parks around. Nice area but keep in mind the grocery store is not always a block away. It is called Lakeland for a reason. You can see the grocery store but it take 4 miles to get there. Being centrally located makes Tampa or Orlando an easy drive except for the traffic you can encounter of course. Side note: Download the Waze App and use it whenever traveling those roads. It will advise you quickly of any issues.

RE: "Best" way to weather proof 12 volt elec connection

Regular heat shrink isn't water tight. For that you need the type that has glue inside which you can get at marine supply places. Or, you can smear the inside with silicone and then shrink it up. Man things just trap moisture and become counterproductive. The above suggestion is excellent. Dieelectic grease is a good thing too because it does not trap water. Try to mount in such a way that water will drain away and not to the device. We call that a drip loop.
YC 1 01/01/18 04:49pm Tech Issues

If no DC at the fuse panel but DC at the converter then you have an open line between the two. The open line can be as simple as a breaker popped or a loose connection at either end. 12.4 volts is a dead battery so those are not getting charged. Model of rv might help.
