RE: Solar tilt/brackets

Not RJ, but I used Nutserts for a knob with male threads. I've also used a bolt, held in place with a nut, and used a knob with a female thread on it.

RE: Solar tilt/brackets

I've made similar ones to RJ, but used a stainless steel T hinge. Cut down the long arm to the length you want the panel off the roof, add in the hardware, and have panel tilt in any axis.

RE: What is this wire?

Thermal fuse? Can't read the markings on it from here. If it's a thermal fuse, and got too hot, it may have opened. This would be useful in case of a stove fire.

RE: Hooked up to 220v on accident

BTW this problem is more common than many think. The 30 amp plug for RVs is the same plug that many 220 vac name brand welders use. Unless you wired it youself you would never know. In fact I have one wired for my welder mounted by the door of my shop. No,it's not the same. Close, but not the same.

RE: Why not use AFCI's in RVs?

My question is why they don't use a single pole 30 amp GFCI for a main breaker and protect everything against a ground fault? Cost would be one reason why not. Because you never want a fridge or freeze plugged into a GFCI outlet or breaker. In fact, the code allows exceptions for this. The freezer in my garage is connected to a non-GFCI recepticle. As long as it is a single outlet like this: It is considered "special purpose" under the NEC, as long as you can't plug anything else intop a non-GFCI protected outlet. You're not going to unplug your freezer to plug in a power tool.... Interesting. I've never heard of a technical reason why a fridge or freezer shouldn't be on a GFCI. This article says any fridge less than 20 years old isn't a problem and there is no technical reason for a fridge or freezer not to be on a GFCI. Other than in residential applications, a GFCI is NEC required, except that in a residential basement or garage, all recepts. including one for a fridge must be on a GFCI. Interestingly, the article says that one day all receptacles will likely require a GFCI and an AFCI. NEC and fridges/freezers on a GFCI. An electrical inspector told me once that it's good practice to have a fridge or freezer connected to the same circuit as the lights in the room so that if the lights won't go on, you will know right away that your fridge and freezer could be off. Could there be something about an RV fridge that won't work well on a GFCI? The non-technical reason is: Because CFCI are meant to be used in wet environments, increasing the odds of one tripping. A freezer full of spoiled food isn't pleasant to deal with.

RE: Onan insulation inlet baffle

Looks like it keeps the sound proofing insulation off the air inlet.

RE: Is my antique RV a B class or A class?

The green light is an aftermarket switch, made by Bosch. It is switching a circuit, likely auxiliary driving lights, that aren't installed.

RE: Watch that dip

Nope, that's not us. That's a T-600 series KW. We're still in GP, if anyone needs advice, or a hand, or coffee.

RE: Calling ALL Trailer Saver Owners

The line is the mid-point of the hitch travel. Too much above or below, and you run the risk of hitting the stops. Air pressure isn't used for leveling, it's used as a spring. By running to high, it's turning the spring into a block of rubber, and defeating the purpose of the air ride.

RE: Generator Powered Welding?

Use the 30 amp breaker on the gen and set up 20 amp reseptacle .as shadow catcher said. No. No. NO! Do it right, or stay away from it.

RE: D I Y roof replacement

Depends on relative humidity at your house, and air flow between the metal roof and the trailer roof. Will the metal cover have any value to you once the repairs are complete? Will your neighborhood allow a metal storage shed?

RE: HOnda EU3000is not starting (oil Alert?) bypass??

Orange spark is not a good spark. Swap for the new plug and check spark again. The oil sensor simply grounds the mag, so open circuiting it will prevent it from being an issue. On a satisfactory level, it's an open, on low level, it'll short.

RE: Easy & Cheap way to determine battery draw

The OP is talking about boondocking. The Kill-A-Watt would be of little use since most of his power usage would be on the 12 volt side. TV? Amp? Sounds like 120v A.C. to me. Cheap and easy? Turn over the device, and read the label.:S Add up all the devices you want to power, and size the inverter accordingly.

RE: Icefields Highway

Commercial. You will require a pas, if you intend to stop inside the park boundaries, for anything other than a photo stop.
