Don't forget to do your PDI and make sure all items found are corrected before handing over the $$$ also...

RE: Verizon jet pack , when updates arrive question

Generally if Windows tells you that Updates need to be installed at shutdown, the updates have already been downloaded. You no longer need your internet connection. So you can turn off the Jetpack.

RE: Do electric RV steps work off of shore power if plugged in?

Yes chassis. Most MH's have house battery disconnects. When disconnected how would the steps work? You need to get in/out with the house batt's disconnected...

RE: Battery cutoff switch

When hooked up I shut mine off. I have never had a problem at all by doing that. That may be true but its not intended operation. The batteries should be used at all times when connected to shore power. They provide and additional voltage stabilization and noise filter for all of your DC electronics. If your batteries get overcharged you should make sure to check them regularly, maintain the water levels, or consider installing a smarter converter system.

RE: Do electric RV steps work off of shore power if plugged in?

No they all work off of 12V chassis power, and chassis battery. Otherwise the steps wouldn't work without being plugged in or with the house batteries disconnected!

RE: Remote veiwing DVR

What are you using to connect to the Internet? Park WiFi? Cellular Jetpack?

RE: Trailer battery charging while towing

The bottom line: You should not rely on the vehicle 12v line to "charge" the batteries period. You should provide for another method for doing this such as plugging into shore power or a generator.

RE: Battery cutoff switch

When using the RV the battery should be on. The converter keeps it charged. You keep the battery maintained. Off for storage on for use. On while towing also.

RE: Looking for in Dash Radio/GPS

In the MH preferred to keep the GPS out of the radio. I upgraded the radio to a double din Pioneer with a 6.2in touch screen with Bluetooth hands free calling, and Air Play. On the GPS side I went with the Garmin RV760LMT.

RE: trans temperature downhill

How hot does it get? Yes what do you consider hot? We test these transmission's to very high temperatures during development. Max temps can go as high as 250F on Davis Dam testing...

RE: Andersen WDH without chains

I'm still confused as to why you think you don't need the WDH function?

RE: Setting up RV to use water pump instead of Park Supply

Well Ranger Smith, most of the newer Prevost chasis Custom Coaches, like Marathon, Liberty, Millenium, and even the Newell's have it. So NEVER, say NEVER. If you want help you shouldn't mock those trying to help!

RE: Cleaning snow from the roof in below freezing weather

We get just as much here in Michigan. I don't think it needs to be removed at all.

RE: Cleaning snow from the roof in below freezing weather

Leave the snow right where it is until spring. If you have to use the MH,pull the cover. I don't use a cover, and just leave the snow up there except for the solar panels which I clean every now and then.

RE: Inverter / Charger Settings when Batteries Removed..

When I had to change out the house batteries, everything was off and I was NOT plugged in to show power. To me that seemed like the only safe way to do the swap. I cannot think of any reason that I would have needed to be plugged in during the job...

RE: HP question on a Cummins 8.3

If you want 425 HP, look for the 8.9L ISL. Another vote for the ISL. Ours is rated per factory specs at 400HP, but can be chipped easily to 450HP.

RE: Cleaning my grill - Help!

You're all a bunch of wimps. Wire brush it, let it run till it's hot. It's good to go!
