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.

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.

RE: Mobile RV tech in Tampa St. Pete area

Call Lazy Daze. They have a campground next to their service center.

RE: Question about toad diode wiring

Diodes add many more connections and potential bad connections. Water intrusion can be an issue too. If the brake device is sensitive to input voltage it could be fooled by the tiniest of voltage leak and either stay locked up or worse, some can lock up while you are driving the toad. I highly recommend using separate bulbs which are easy enough to install or stick with your magnetic setup. Another option if you have a tow hitch on the toad it so to use a tow bar with or without a tow ball and then connect a cross bar to hold lights on each end. The light bar can be removed easily. I often just leave mine in place. The tow ball is still available if needed.

RE: Battery or converter Problem?

The batteries may not be connected to the inverter due to a relay being turned off. Check the output of the inverter at the inverter first then at the battery The voltage on the battery may be so low that any relay that is supposed to connect, cannot.

RE: Generator Muffler Mods

A lot of noise is also the intake air.

RE: A genuine Propane Puzzler

Wow, I haven't heard that one in over 50 years. I can remember that as a kid. Why, where, and how I became aware of it is a mystery except we lived in a mining camp in the mountains. We had many large tanks of "butane".

RE: Atwood Hydroflame Furnace Issue

There is internal safety devices. If the thing is overheating it may keep it off.

RE: any experience at Wilderness Camp at Disney???

You are allowed cats and all kinds of animal pets. Never let rumors lead you astray. Call them directly if you really want the information. Check this site out http://www.fortfiends.net/search/

RE: any experience at Wilderness Camp at Disney???

Profit is not a dirty word. Any business will charge what the traffic will bare. Disney is a bargain if you think about the perks. All transportation is included. You can spend days just visiting resorts and riding the boats, buses, and monorail for free.

RE: Batt discharge rate

3 yrs old.. Batt 1 is ready for replacement and I would never buy one. Replace them both. We do NOT buy batteries. We only rent them. In the RV world most batteries are murdered and not allowed to live a normal life. they work very hard and are tortured to death. You can mess about with all kinds of tests and maybe revive it but I personally do not like sick batteries when I am boondocking. Dead or sick batteries lead to all kinds of other things not working properly.

RE: Battery wires- black white and green

One has to be very careful assuming any color is positive or negative in an RV. Electrons are color blind and often RV builders think of the black wire as being the "hot" wire and continue with that into the 12 volt side of life. Too many folks have smoked things making assumptions connecting up batteries on the fronts of their travel trailers.

RE: Anyone self installed a Winegard SK SWM3 to replace a dome

In telecommunications for decades and used thousands of barrels. There is a reason they sell them. Be sure to tighten them with pliars and seal with commercial quality tape or sealing material. Scotch 33 or 88 is outstanding and will last 20 years or more. Signal loss for such short runs is nothing to worry about. If you can make the run without them, do so of course.

RE: Battery wires- black white and green

Any color is probably connected to positive. You can leave the green off until something does not work.Could be a bad deal if it is the break-away cable. It should be easy to follow the green wire to the break-away switch if that is it.

RE: Transfer switch not making contact automatically.

Why not just lift the gozinds and goesouts and wire nut them together? You will need to remove the transfer switch at some time anyway. Take plenty of pictures before and print them out for reference.
