RE: Using TV inverter to power fridge while towing Do or don't?

We had an '03 Itasca that the refrigerator was on the same side as the gas tank fill was. Because we ran the refrigerator on LP while driving, I wondered about it causing a fire when filling the gas tank. Being that it was on the driver's side, I ran a cord from the refrigerator to the driver's seat, and put a switch on the end of the cord, so I could turn the refrigerator off while gassing up. We now have a 2015 with the refrigerator on the passenger side. So not practical to run a cord. I found a wireless relay, and wired it to the 12 volt power feed to the refrigerator. Perhaps that wood work on a TT. Dusty

RE: Is it Okay to Install a Regular Battery Inside the Coach?

I have been using 2-12 volt batteries in parallel for many years, maybe 25, and everything has worked well. Dusty

RE: Do I need an external surge protector? Other essentials?

We have been camping/living in a mh sense 1988. Of the 3 things you ask about we only use an inexpensive pressure regulator. I find that it reduces the amount of water used, which is important if you have to hold your gray water. Dusty

RE: Trimark latch with twin keyholes: lubrication

If I may I'd like to borrow this thread. I have a pair of new pad locks that are keyed alike and are key retention, key will only come out when they are locked. The problem is that even when they are locked the key comes out very hard. One needs to really work at it to get the key to come out. Any suggestions to make them work easier? Thanks, Dusty

vent fan

I installed a MaxxFan 1200T in our 2003 mh. We traded it for a new mh in 2015, and I planned to put a 1200T in the new mh, then I found that the 1200T is no longer available. I wish I had removed the old one before we traded. Dusty

RE: On-board propane tank refill

For when we are parked for the winter in the land of warm weather and sunshine, I built a exten-a-stay, and use 20 lb. tank. Local LP supplier will come and fill our mh tank, but it cost $1.00 more a gal. than if we go to their place and get filled. And they do put 20 lb. in. Dusty

RE: Extended warranty - is it worth it

To me a warranty is when a manufacture guarantees their product, or someone guarantees their work. These warranties that are being pushed are nothing but insurance polices by a third parity making money on you. Dusty

RE: Dolly tow

Also look at the different types of tow dolls. I like the type made by Demco. Dusty

condensate from AC

Has anyone ever tried to catch, control where the condensate drains to from the roof top AC on a class C mh? I'm working on an idea. It would be removed before driving down the road. Dusty

RE: Fantastic Fan vs. Maxxair

I put a MaxxFan 1200T on out '03 mh. We traded it for a new '15. When I went to get a new MaxxFan 1200T to put in our new mh I found they were no longer available, sure wish ai had removed the one from our old mh. Anyone know where there is one, even used? We sure liked the old one. Dusty

RE: Help me build a 30 to 50 amp extension cord...

Update.....I ordered a 50', 50amp ext cord as recommended, it arrived last night. The measured voltage at the outlet was 121.7, I hooked up the cord and the measured voltage was 121.2, so a drop of .5 volts over 50ft. I will still have to connect the ext cord to my Rv cord which is 50a at 30', but I believe the voltage drop will be minimal there as well, im hoping I'll have 119.5 volts to the rv. I appreciate the prompt responses and guidance. Now measure the voltage with a full load. Both ends. Dusty

RE: Replacing roof A/C unit

Check and replace the start capacitorI called an RV company and they say my A/C (1997 Coleman)is too old and they don't make a replacement capacitor any longer. That doesn't sound right to me. Capacitors as far as I know is a capacitor and as many as there are out there I would think there would be one that I can buy for it. That's like saying a new car will not fit your driveway. Dusty

Fresh water hose

I grew up on a farm, where we had live stock, and used common water hoses from local hardware stores. We often drank from those hoses, with no problem. We have had a mh for many years, and used the white hoses recommend for drinking water. The last couple of years these white hoses have been causing a bad taste when using for city water hook ups. Not at any one location, but every time we use the city water hook up. Filling the fresh water tank has not been a problem. Has anyone found a hose that does NOT leave a taste? Even after a few years of use. Thanks, Dusty

RE: Shortest Class C Recommendations

We had a 2003 Itasca 24V that was basically just what you are looking for. We liked it real well but got to the point of climbing up to the crow's nest for the bed got to be more of a chore, because of our age. Dusty

RE: Can two 6V and one 12V be charged by rv system?

Thank you for all the answers. I will separate and use a small charger for the 12V off the generator. The two 6V are used by the rest of the family when not on the generator, i.e. lights, phone charging, TV, etc. Or you could run the CPAP off the RV 12 volt system. Dusty

RE: Refurbished Class C tow rating 2013 E450

We have a flat bed trailer because I go to tractor shows and take my tractor. We had a '02- 24' mh with an E-350, now a '15-27' mh. When we go south for the winter we tow our on the trailer. One of the better things we did was put a weight distribution on the mh. Both of the mh are class C. Dusty

RE: Help - How To Remove MaxxFan Fan Blade

Check and see if there is a second set screw in the same hole.
