Trouble with the hybrid is you need a generator or utility power and then it makes the big solar less needed. So it depends on your style if the extra features are worth it.
My GP2000SW is working great BTW.
I could see the acceleration of the cam against the valvetrain to cause a brief silence.
Especially when combined with a worn timing chain.
Or could it be the chain? Not likely to make a screech IMO.
Does the noise seem external and toward the front? I mean you started with the belt driven accessories.
Any access to inspect the flexplate and torque converter?
I did 14 east and 16 west and while 16 was probably a bit easier the change of scenery was worth doing both.
Either one is not a huge deal even if you go a bit slow at times.
Your truck is way newer than my old 260hp and 4spd transmission.
Allow yourself extra time and don't make it a race and you will be fine.
The fridge needs 12v for the controls and uses either propane or 120vac heater to power the absorption process.
There are plenty of posts where the heating element is bad and causes the GFCI to trip. Unplug the fridge and see if the GFCI stays on 24 hours.
I have read plenty of posts of some random coffee pot does not brew on some random MSW inverter.
Coffee pot seems to survive another day as I don't recall the smoke coming out. Just no worky.
1500 or 2000 sw has your name on it :B
I am looking to finance maybe $6000 over 36 months on a $12k RV. I know it is very small but I like holding onto my cash, and I usually pay the loan off early and it helps build my credit.I recommend you finance the full $12k and still pay it off in 36 months. Assuming the interest rate is the same. Even get the terms for 10 or 15 years if the rate is the same. Make sure there are no prepayment penalties. If times get hard it will give flexibility. And if good times continue then you are still clear in 36 months.
