RE: Evaporative Cooler on the Roof??

On California Gold with Hugh Hosier (sp?) several years ago, he did a show on houses down around Thermal CA and the cooling system they used years ago. If I remember right, they draped the houses in burlap and had water tanks on towers that would drip and wet the burlap. I think they used these in the early 1900's. Probably could find more doing a search online. Brian

Evaporative Cooler on the Roof??

I was driving back from Virginia City NV today. On hiway 50 just east of Carson City, I saw an older bus conversion with a very large evaporative cooler on the roof.....must have been about 4 feet higher then the roof.......looked like something waiting to be taken off by a tree limb or overpass. Don't think I had ever seen one on an RV before. Brian

Shower Liquid Soap Dispenser

I have a 3 container liquid dispenser in my shower. What kind of liquid soap do you use in this? I assume compartments are for soap, shampoo, and conditioner. Thanks Brian

RE: Blue ox pin failure

Had a Blue Ox base plate brake on my 07 Escape hybrid after a couple years of use, probably about 10K miles total use, safety cables did their job. Called Blue Ox and they had re engineered the new base plate for my model/year...sent me a new one, no charge. New one was much better built. Brian

RE: China made LED light Strip problems.

i'm using the transformers........and I also I have one light out of the 4 available. Prior to soldiering instead of using the supplied connectors only half the green lights would come on. Now I have green white and blue, but no red on one string.

China made LED light Strip problems.

I've installed a couple of LED light strips, one down each bottom side of my motor home. I purchased them online for around $25, they flash, change colors, dim etc etc. I've had nothing but problems, that I've narrowed down to a view things. one being voltage drop, which makes the lights act erratic, ie, different color then selected, only 1/2 the lights come on, etc etc. I've increased the wire gauge size, soldiered all connections, and it works about 95% correctly. I've researched online, and it appears there's lots of problems with these so called cheap China made LED light strips. The light strips themselves are thin, cheap components that burn out, voltage drop among other things. I haven't talked to any experts yet, but have read and seen videos that compare the China made ones with domestic strips. The quality of the domestic is superior...........the price also goes up.......but I guess you get what you pay for. I'm curious, has anyone else run into problems with their mult function, multi colored light strips? Thanks Brian

RE: Got hung up and could not move. How did I get out?

If it was a dirt driveway, you could dig a small trench for the hitch. Brian

RE: How do they jack up big coach when replacing tires?

Use the leveling jacks to take most of the weight off the coach.........Tires should still be on the ground. Then use a jack to raised the axle up so the tire is just off the ground then change the tire. This way you have the leveling jacks as a back up.

RE: changed out Norcold to Amish cooling unit

If I ever have problems, this is the way I'm going. http://www.rvrefrigerator.net/ Have already talked to him and read reviews. I've already installed the ARP control unit, which I highly recommend, alo9ng with a fire extinguisher..........which I bought from Mac the Fire Guy........lots of info on his website. Brian

RE: Refrigerator Safety Device

Dennis, when I was talking to Mac the fire guy about extinguishers, he said he had one of the APRrv controls installed on his refrigerator. From what I had previously read and hearing this from Mac, convinced me this was the way to go. Brian

Refrigerator Safety Device

I just finished the install of my Absorption Refrigeration Protective RV Control. I think this is one of the most important installations I've done to my RV...........especially from a safety stand point. Anyone that is concerned about refrigerator fires should take a look at this device. The installation was NOT difficult....but did take a few hours......I installed the unit with a indicator inside the motor home, so running the wires was the most time consuming. I'm sure the installation where the indicator is in the access compartment for the rear of the refrigerator would be much faster. www.arprv.com is where you can read all about it. Spend a little time looking over the website, it's loaded with information, and I think you'll agree, this is a good device to have. I know I'll sleep better knowing I have an extra bit of safety. Next step is to install a fire extinguisher to cover all bases. By the way, Paul at ARPrv was very helpful, you contact him via email or phone. Brian

Thanks for all the Frig info the last few days.

I just talked to Paul at ARPRV........they make a controller that is much better then the one that comes on the frig....it shuts the frig down when it senses an overheat. I've read nothing but good things about his controller, so I'm ordering one. I also asked him about this company http://www.fixyourfridge.com/ and he spoke highly of them and their product. I've also heard nothing but good about them. So, I'm keeping my Norcold, installing one of the ARPRV controllers, buying a fire extinguisher from Mac the fire guy.....and will live with it. If I ever have problems with the frig, I think I'll just put a new cooling unit from http://www.fixyourfridge.com/. Again, this is a different guy then was is typically refered to as Amish units.......even though he is Amish.......he's suppose to build a superior unit then the Amish or norcold replacement. So, that's what I'm going to do. My unit runs fine and the ice cream is hard LOL. Also, I haven't been able to find a Res frig that will fit.....if it's short enough, then it's to deep, if it's depth is ok, then it's to tall. Also, as you know, I'd have to buy another invertor on and on......so I've made a decision, until I change my mind LOL. Thanks for all the good info. I do appreciate it. Brian

RE: Inverter for Residential Frig ????

How bout if I was to use this model, what would be the answers to questions 1,2 and 3 above. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Whirlpool-14-4-cu-ft-Top-Freezer-Refrigerator-in-White-W4TXNWFWQ/203487910?MERCH=REC-_-PIPHorizontal1-5-_-NA-_-203487910-_-N#specifications Thanks again. Brian

Inverter for Residential Frig ????

First off, I don't know if I have a pure or modified sine wave inverter. Yes, I will find out. However, for now, lets assume I have a modified 2000 watt inverter in my motorhome. 1. If I install a residential frig that needs a pure syn wave, can I install a second invertor that is devoted to just the frig? I ask this, because I'm assuming buying a smaller invertor would be much cheaper then replacing my 2000 watt invertor which runs fine. 2. If you can run a second inverter, can you run it off the same battery bank that runs the 2000 watt existing inverter? I have 4-6 volt batteries. 3. What size invertor would I need to run a residential frig? Thanks Brian

RE: Make/Model Residential Frig to replace 4 door Norcold??

B&B do you have a model for that Frigidaire? Are you running it on a pure or modified sine wave inverter? Thanks for the info. Brian
