RE: Who Double Tows With Your Motorhome

^^^^ "Certain conditions" probably means a single trip permit.

RE: Who Double Tows With Your Motorhome

Last I looked in CA (last year) you need a commercial class A license with medical certificate etc. to tow double. I assume you need equivalent license from NV. I believe your equipment would be legal on most roads but certainly restricted on some due to curves.

RE: Electrical Shock!!

Have you plugged into a GFI protected circuit lately? Otherwise start with an outlet tester to check the supply outlet and the outlets in your RV.

RE: I need help!

The Honeywell has it own power source. (two 1.5 volt batteries) So does the Hunter. The above diagram shows the red wire with 7.5 volts is not connected.

RE: Dometic digital thermostat

^^^^ Might be better to start a new thread in Tech Issues forum.

RE: Load Range D or E

Is the spare the same wheel? If so take it down to the tire store to demount the tire and check the rating on the wheel.

RE: Switching to a start battery for genset? Seldom use DC.

Consider a Lifeline AGM deep cycle. It will start the onan just fine.

RE: Tire question

205/15? Yes I have been running these on my steel wheels at 65psi for a few years. Never read a post of a steel wheel failure from 15psi extra.

RE: tank rinse install gone bad

The tank is abs plastic. The plasti-mend will work great from the reviews I am reading. I'll try that out and see.Plastimend will make a permanent fix. Have used it and give it top rating. However I would be tempted to just make a disk and silicone/screw to the tank side similar to the way the tornado is mounted. You can go plastimend later if it leaks.

RE: tank rinse install gone bad

Plug the hole and install in the initial preferred space. Get a longer hose as needed. Actually that hose/clamp is a bit weak... I would replace the hose with a real plumbing connection.

RE: Goodyear pulled a fast one on me. Load rating rant.

Does not seem that Goodyear pulled any "Fast One" Just an honest oversight or mistake. Sounds like the dealer made good on the change once it was discovered. Glad you have the correct tires now.

RE: Inverter gens

Should find plenty of places to plug in. Lots of miles will charge the battery fairly well and with a decent battery you should make two nights easy without recharge. Otherwise my Kipor ran fine before solar when I used to actually bring it.

RE: How to make AC plugs work without shore power.

I recommend Go Power inverters. 900w of heat for a few hours is going to need 6 to 8 batteries. Then how will you recharge? I will suggest one of the propane catalytic heaters designed for indoor use if you need warmth. http://www.mrheater.com/product.aspx?catid=41&id=116

RE: Maxxis Tires c or d

I have the same 205-15 and steel wheels on my trailer. I moved up to D and 65 psi last go around and all has been fine four years now. Although the Denmans only lasted 3.5 years. Hopefully the new MAXXIS last longer. Never read a post of a steel wheel failure from going an extra 15 psi.

RE: Inverter/Converter Issue

If the 30a transfer switch is on a separate branch circuit then all will operate same as before.

RE: Copper sleeve?

This is what the voltage sense wire is for. Use it with #4/#2 main connection and you are fine. Battery will be hit with the exact voltage you program.

RE: Copper sleeve?

How long is the 1/0? I would try to just use #2 without worry.

RE: PV solar system charging voltage low

95 watts is a bit light. 5a might be right and will take some time. Need to disconnect all loads and give it a couple weeks. Sitting at 12.5 might need some reconditioning so it may take longer.

RE: Battery Forumla?

400 to 1600 amp hours, JMHO. (50% to 200%)

RE: Solar Charge Cotroller

Go with gel to avoid equalization
