RE: Progressive Industries Electrical Management System

I watch mine all the time. Shows how poor the wiring in the campgrounds is. I can tell when to cut back or if my wife needs to dry her hair ,I can turn off the coffee maker. I'm glad to be able to watch the display.

RE: onan Microlite no spark

Not fimalar with your Model but my Emarald had a bad oil level switch. That switch does not allow the coils to fire and no spark, which of course shut down the engine, Simple. Check your low oil switch.

RE: Spray mice repellant

I have not found anything to keep them out. Last year I put out 3 boxes of Fresh Cab. Best yet is snap traps and peanut butter. Feed them and kill them. And I also have 3/4 glue traps. They, like cats are curious and explore everything.

RE: Electric brakes

I'd worry more about the battery's. total discharge will ruin them. Another good example of having a disconnect switch on the battery. With one they would not be able to crank up the pin and drive away with your rv also. I think the coils should be ok, but then again, they where never very good at stopping anyway.

RE: Unsafe outlet?

is the outlet grounded and is the thing you wish to plug in grounded also? They make a big thing about hot/neutral and it was all about putting your finger into a light bulb socket and having the shell hot instead of the grounded neutral. BUT they still put polarized cords on toaster and mixers too. Not necessary. Years ago ( a lot of years ago) they used a , what they called a hot (or chicago) three way which switched the hot/neutral every time you turned on the light. I don't remember people dropping like flys. Every house built before the fiftys had it. Don't put your finger into the socket and you'll be just fine.

RE: Hot water heater question?

there is no check valve in my system and none in my s&b home. Hot water will back up somewhat into the cold line but usually less than a foot If your other faucet is feed right where the line goes into the heater, hot water could come out on the cold but only for a second. a check valve could be installed but I dont think they put one in. Remember, it would cost them MONEY.

RE: What Sticks to Coroplast?

I stiched mine with small holes and black tywraps (zip ties) and then put tyvak tape over the seam. After three years the tape is still in good shape

RE: Electrical hookups in Canada

Regardless of how anything is wired, ALWAYS test the voltage before plugging in your RV. That way you will not have to post " I plugged in my RV and a bunch of smoke came out of ---- and the Tv doesn't work and on and on. Poor little me"TEST YOUR VOLTAGE.

RE: Wireless networks while camping

We bought Verizon Mi Fi years back and use it for ALL our wireless stuff. We bought time at a campground for wifi and it was useless. Because people bought and paid for it the thought that they could leave it up all the time and by doing so used so much bandwidth it left none for other users. Plus I got my own secure line. By using this we do not have cable at home, just the mifi and it works just fine and is fast enough for our needs.

RE: Looking for a small freezer

Make sure you have plenty on circulation and fresh air exchange. Without it the unit will try to cool and make more heat than cool.

RE: Should I purchase an RV warranty?

At that price I'd probably go for it. BUT-- Is it a good warrentee company and will it be around in 3 or 4 years or like so many before them gone out of business? On an RV there are so many little things that can go wrong, but the way they are built(sloppy,poor workmanship) that the extra expense can be justified. When it take two people to remove a TV because the cord came out of the wall or changing a fuse on the convertor because you cant's get to it. Unlike the stove or washer or?? at home that are quite dependable where I did buy a warrenty and never needed.

RE: aux fuel tank in truck questions

I have an RDS tank from Northern tool. you can buy their adapter and it allows fuel to flow into your main tank and then shuts off. If you leave it on until the fuel guage starts dropping, you know the bed tank is empty. It works great. I put inline a ball valve to shut off the bed tank because I want to keep the bed tank full sometimes

RE: LP TANK DATE STAMP ?

In all the years I've had a thing that holds propane (so I don't get into tank vs cylinder debate)> I have never been denied getting it (them ) refilled. Maybe I have been lucky and no one cares. Or because the tanks always look new they assume they are and don't look too hard.

RE: Disc Brake Actuator

To compare actuators, one must have used 2 or more. I can't imagine that many have done that. I have the Titan and it's just fine. No need to compare. The kit was supplied with it. And as far as brake pads, even the worst will be a vast improvement over the cheap c**p drum brakes they pass off as brakes.

RE: I don't come around here these days much....

Ya, I'd trade because it needs an awning fabric, a shower curtian and the propane tanks recertified. Lets see $350 for awning fabric, a new shower curtain $8, and let's buy New tanks at $75 each. $508 and you don"t have any payments, and you know how to use your trailer and how to back it up. They are easier than a fiver. Just saying. I don't like easy monthly payments.

RE: Smelly water

I too had the sulfur smell and took out the anode rod and installed a ball type drain valve in it's place. That was in 2007. I haven't had the tank self destruct nor leak and I can VERY easily drain or blow off sediment. I figure this, you have an anode in your home water heater and it will never be changed, so why the RV one? Never had stinky water since I removed the rod.

RE: Wall too hot next to fridge flue vent

I too thought my vent was too warm and I took the vent cover off and found insulation and a small hunk of roofing material laying on top of the coils. Good attentive workers. ( Hurry UP da** it, there's another one coming right behind this one) Any chance your refer is in a slide out that has a fan. Your fan may not be working.

RE: 5th wheel brake wiring

I guess first. we should know what brand of actuator you have. I went out and looked at mine (TITAN) and found the blue wire goes into their harness which gets plugged into their moduel and it then is no longer blue. You must have a wiring diagram, or call the co. I had to because it wound not work without an additional part (not compatiable with the built in brake controller) You will love the stopping power of those brakes. A wise choice.
