RE: Lake Oroville, CA

I stayed at a rv park at the casino on south side of town, cant remember the name but it was a nice rv park and they brew their own beer at the casino. That is where I will stay if ever in that area again.. Thunder Hill? Probably not Gold Coast. I don't remember them having anything flat to park on.

RE: No interstate from Florida To Maine route

We followed the coast as much as possible all the way up and then went down and cut through New York to see Niagra Falls. We made the trip back more inland so we did not travel over the same area much,. If you have microsoft streets and trips I could send you my trip. It has all of the campgrounds we stayed at along the way.

RE: Lake Oroville, CA

The 4th may be booked for any rv spaces already. Even the Dam launch site can fill up for launching. There are not a lot of RV parks at or on the lake unfortunately. The lake is beautiful and huge and will be warm and comfortable at that time of year. The fishing can be awesome. Bald Eagles, deer, and lots of other critters can be seen. The name of the marina slips my mind but the one major one has a beautiful ramp. As far as slips you need to start making calls now. There are a couple of nice RV parks in Oroville so if you can get a slip for the boat your drive will be very short. About 20 minutes or so. There are two Indian Casinos and one has a nice RV park. It is fairly new. We stayed there for a weekend trip to get away. We lived just a few miles South of Oroville then. When going to Oroville lake it was a simple day trip for me. Less than an hour from home to launch,.

RE: Any ideas on how to free a rusted ball on B&W hitch?

Ok, I get the picture now. Will a long pinch bar work? Turn the receiver over so the ball is on the top side and place the pinch bar between the 2 inch tube and the ball. Then you can stand on the end of the 5-6 ft bar. Pinch bar

RE: Macerator hair

Ditto on the hair catcher drain covers. The wife is losing her hair due to medication and they really help.

RE: Any ideas on how to free a rusted ball on B&W hitch?

3 ft pipe wrench with a 3 ft pipe to extend it. Or longer. You will be amazed at the torque you can put on it. Of course gentle heat and pb blaster will eventually free it. Someone may have put loctite on it and that often needs heat to loosten.

RE: Trombetta relay Questions

Some systems reduce the control voltage to the relay to keep it running cooler. When you see the higher voltage using the emergency start button it is simply bypassing that circuit and applying full battery voltage. There is not harm in doing this. My relay is run by full battery voltage when one bank or the other is getting charged and the relay gets hot to the touch. This is normal for my setup.

RE: ? for electric/electronic experts.

No no no. Do not do this. The inverter is not designed to run an Air Conditioner. Am I missing something here? First if it is a modified sine wave many electronics will not play well with it. An Air Conditioner can pull more current than the inverter can supply. You would need tons of batteries and a much more hefty inverter. I understand if you are just wanting to plug the shoreline cord into the inverter to run the microwave or coffee pot but you need to make sure the (converter breaker is off), as well as the hot water heater, and the refer should be on gas.

RE: New Wiring Harness - need help!

Go to your battery and use the post to test the tester. If it functions ok you need to find a better ground at the hitch. Grind some place shiny clean and connect to that. I actually screwed a crimp connector for a wire on a place made shiny and clean. I can alligator clip to it with confidence. If you have a piece of wire long enough just run it to the negative battery post.

RE: I am a grandpa!

You have a new toad. How cool is that? Man is never so tall as when he stoops to pick up a child. Get a cardboard box about his size and take him camping. He can't crawl out of that and will play with it when he can. Cardboard box, piece of string, and a stick is all a kid wants to play with when camping. Rocks of course too.

RE: Do you launch a boat with your Class C?

I did it hundreds of times. I always kept a 4x4 to place behind the rear tires if launching by myself. Never any issues. On a long ramp get as straight as possible to start and then put it in neutral and let go of the steering wheel. Let the boat pull you down the ramp. You usually don't need to touch the wheel. And yes this was in California.

RE: Gen set service

Fuel filter for sure. Check the coolant and replace when the book calls for it. The manual should have all of the maintenance items listed. When you run it be sure to put a good load on it.

RE: Dc electical Problem

Did you just replace the batteries? Sounds like you have two 12 volters in series.

RE: Engine charging of coach batteries

It would not take much to install a solenoid activated by a wire that is hot when the ignition is on. Or if you have an aux start switch that works just run an ignition wire to that solenoid. That is what the Intellitec BIRD system does with a small control box. They use the same solenoid and depending on if the IGNITION wire is powered is how that module activates the solenoid. Doug Yes, I am totally familiar with the BIRD systems. However if the op system never charged it is a simple task to add a solenoid. I have installed thousands of solenoids in 40 years in my business. I kept them in stock by the box full.

RE: Diesel pusher electrical starting prob[ems

Four year old starting batteries are shot. Since you put a charger on the terminals themselves it is unlikely the cables or connections are at fault. Batteries are not bought, they are just rented. Save yourself a lot of grief and install new ones. Take pictures of the cables before removing them. Then while you have them out disconnect the second bank and clean every connection and reconnect. Do not just retighten them. Take them off and clean them shiny bright.

Interactive electrical site This site is amazing. You can toggle things on and off and select many variations. It will give you a sense of how yours may work.

RE: Is this "normal" number of problems with motorhome?

Your RV was built on a fault line. It experiences earthquakes every time you move it. If you own an RV you better be handy with tools and a voltmeter or a checkbook. You got all of the parts when you bought it. No guarantee they will all work at the same time. If I get through a couple of weeks while on the road without having to tweak something I know I have just missed it. It really becomes a hobby.
