RE: battery vent box

Contact your local battery store.

RE: Clearance lights regulation

Lighting requirements. Click on the unit most closely matching your unit to see a detailed list of lights.

RE: Solar Finally

I'm looking at this as well. Since I have no knowledge, do you run it directly to the battery compartment when using it? You can get them with or without a built in charge controller. If you have the controller all you have to do is put the clips on the battery. The leads will be about 15 feet long. I have 2 of them without controllers that feed into a 30 watt pwm. Waiting to take the rig out and give them a try. I riggged up a 50 foot cable out of some wire that I have had for a while. THis lets me park in the shade and put the solar panels in the sun. In direct sunlight I was getting 21.5 volts and 11.3 amps at the end of the cable. http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y137/flamingcanvas/100_1514.jpg Please do us all a favour, and use the proper cable connectors. There's a reason the NEC has different specs for different voltages.

RE: Help!!! It's hot and have electrical issues :)

If they've been overloaded, either of them, they need to be shut off to clear the fault. Once stopped, restart.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

Heads up to the early birds. It's been just above freezing today (May 05) in Grande Prairie, AB and predictions are for below freezing temps overnight for the next 4 or 5 nights. The provincial parks are still closed, for the most part. Time to look for space in a commercial park, to keep the furnace firing, or have the genny fueled and ready to go. That furnace can be a battery eater.

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.
