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.

RE: Feedback on this solar kit?

Tom, that's a bad idea to use connectors that aren't designed for the use. Sooner or later, somebody will plug that plug into a 120v cord, and there's going to be an impressive show.

RE: How to cut/strip 6ga insulated stranded copper wire

Sharp knife, a bit of common sense, and good feeling in your fingers. Gently ring the wire, while flexing the point of knife contact. The idea is to cut through the insulation, while not hitting the copper.

RE: Wire type and size for portable solar panel kit

I've used both tray cable, and 10/2 SOW for portable installs. SOW is the heavy black rubber extension cord type wire. It's really flexible, tray cable is stiffer, but not too unwieldy. I like tray cable for installs where the owners are a little more aware of the cable being "slightly" more vulnerable.

RE: 460 thermostat housing bolts,,

460 thermostat housing doesn't have nuts, it has threads into the block under the housing. Sprays won't get in there. Use a MBFH(Medium Big Freakin' Hammer) to give them a tap on the heads. Repeat as necessary.

Car stereo stores, too.

RE: Canadian solar prices hovering near $1 per watt!

Beats the $400/100 watt special that Canadian Tire had last week. Did make me giggle, though.

RE: Weird 12 volt problem ~ Solved!!!

12 volt plugs aren't standardized. 2 different variations, at least. They don't interchange. Look down inside them, betting they're different.

RE: Sad News

Check your map, Harv. 43 has a few sections that are E/W, and runs at a 45* angle NW/SE.

RE: What happens if you plug a 50 Amp RV into 22V welder plug

Probably nothing. Most welder plugs don't have a Neutral, so none of the 120 stuff would work, but you SHOULDN'T let the smoke out.
