RE: Slide-Outs @ Walmart

It's easy. I could care less what Escapees or anyone else thinks I should or shouldn't do, it's not their call regardless what they think. When I've had to use a Walmart I ALWAYS go in and ask permission and tell them where I am. I also park the slide side over either a planter or someplace where it's zero Impact on the lot. End of story

RE: Anyone use a CARCHET TPMS

If you didn't know it happened, either the system is broken or out of range and mebbe you didn't notice? A blowout should have been an almost immediate alert yet you saw nothing

What about the RVIA Sticker ?

I'm about to spend significant $$ to fix a clear coat issue on the right side of the motorhome and the paint shop wants to get everything off they can get off they can, including the RVIA sticker. The sticker now looks like cr@p after years in the sun, faded ink, etc. Is there any reason or legal obligation to retain that sticker on the side? Can it be replaced if needed??

RE: Slide-Outs @ Walmart

Go to the side and put it out over the grass area. While close to the lawn you can fertilize it before leaving. Sure hope you're kidding. It's behavior like that that will close down WalMart's generosity.its a JOKE.... Geeeze

RE: Noisy Furnace

I have NEVER seen a sleeve bearing that once is sticky or noisy be rescued by oil. At that points its simply a bandaid

RE: Can I insulate the engine shroud?

West MarineIf you're trying to do it right, THIS is what you need to be looking at... period

RE: Can I insulate the engine shroud?

Or simply use cowling heat shield/ soundproofing from a boat shop. It's the same stuff used to line generator compartments.

RE: Generator Polarity

Or you can replace the outlet with an isolated ground orange outlet and do this strap internally. Cleaner and permenant. It's POSSIBLE the generator has an auto-protect. What's the manual say?

RE: Generator Polarity

Just for TV you might be able to get by on battery alone. For QUIET generator, and Honda EU1000 or 2000 is as quiet as it can get. Polarity ?

RE: Honda 1000 + Extended Tank??

Not sure why you're flooding the engine. I simply change the gas cap to the one with the standard marine fuel fittings, attach a standard marine outboard fuel hose, attach the external tank, prime the fuel line and it just runs

RE: Generator Gas Usage, AC, and Battery Charging

It seems the Yamaha and Honda 2000 WATT Generators have the lowest fuel consumption. I have read these generators run about 8-10 hours on one gallon of fuel. Have owners of these generators found the 8-10 hours per gallon to be correct? I am pretty sure these will not run the 13.5K roof mount AC but I am thinking I could add an auxiliary 8K to 10K window unit while boondocking. Does anyone have experience with using either (or similar) of these generators with smaller AC units? Powering a window AC would be great but my main need is to charge the RV batteries. I have read some battery types charge more slowly as the charge approaches 100 percent. Does anyone know how many AMPS these generators can dump into a battery per hour? I think the battery type, LITHIUM, AGM, GEL, LEAD ACID impacts this as well. I am OK with paying a premium price for a HONDA, YAMAHA if I get better fuel economy, and product life. But I am a bit concerned that to charge the batteries I might need to run the generator at full power. At full power the fuel usage could increase such that I would be better off with a larger generator which might actually cost less.The DC outputs on any of these generarors are completely useless. They are extremely low current for the fuel you put into them, somewhere around 6A with ECO mode Off. Plan on a good 3 stage external,charger for any of your battery escapades
