RE: winter storage for RV

I put a switch in the power line to the fuel pump that feeds the generator. When I know that I'm not going to use the generator for a while, with the generator running I turn the fuel pump off and let it run out of gas. Did that for many years, never a problem.

RE: Transfer switch

But an auto-transfer switch is one more thing that can go wrong/fail.

RE: Running on one battery

Good time to switch over to two 6v golf cart batteries. If he switches to two 6v batteries and one goes bad, then he's up the creek with no 12v power. That's why I've always stayed with two 12v batteries in parallel. Dusty

RE: Newbie needs direction on replacing fuel filter 1988 Class C

In '88 we bought a new mh on an E-350 with the 460 cu. in. injected, that was first year that Ford injected the 460. We drove it to Alaska, and purchased a spare fuel filter. We used that mh until the fall of '02 and never used that filter. I have an '89 E-150 with the 300 six, I wonder if it might use that filter?

RE: Tire Pressure

Your posts seem to indicate you have a 23 ft. I have a 24 ft. I run 65 in the front 60 in the rears, as per ford door sticker specs. At 80 and 65 I would be bouncing all over the place, I think. Bet your specs are very close to mine. may want to drop those rears down, in my opinion X2 Dusty

RE: new to class c

That cable/cord looks like it is hooked to an air blow off valve for dumping water from the bottom of a pressure tank.

RE: V10 oil capacity

Be sure the dip stick is pushed in all the way. I've heard where on some it is easy to not get them pushed in all the way.

RE: country water / anode / Suburban / smelly water ?'n

I've installed a few water heaters. In this area I remove the anode rod. In 1980, give or take a year or so, I installed an oil gun fired AO Smith water heater in our home. Then a year later I replaced the oil gun with an LP gun. I did remove the anode rod when I installed the water heater. We moved out of that home in the fall of 2012, and sold that home last fall, 2015, and that water heater is still working just fine. There is a water softener there also. Dusty

RE: Two Cycle oil

Two things. 1 In the late 40's 2 cycles engines in chain saws called for non detergent engine oil. 2 I have an electric chain saw that calls 10w 30 oil. NOT bar oil. I don't understand why, with bar oil being sticky I would think it would be better. Dusty

RE: Taxes

We get home by the end of March, by that time of year it starts to get rather warm in Florida and I it doesn't make sense to me to set inside with the AC running. Dusty

RE: Rooftop AC fan barely moving

Check the voltage at the unit when running.

RE: Making sure how to test new RV outlets.

Why a 400 amp service? That is a LOT of power.

RE: What trans in a 2005 Ford E450? Trans cooler recommended?

We bought a new mh this past We bought a new mh this past Aug. it has the 5/6 speed transmission. With cruse set and tow/haul on, button pushed in, when going up a large hill, small mountain, on the second down shift there seems to be a delay between shifts, from when it drops out of 4th and into 3rd. Is this common ? Thanks, Dusty

RE: Towed vehicle battery charge line

If the battery has a full charge to begin with, and it does not take much to maintain it, then it would not take a very large wire, just add an inline fuse to the wire to protect it from being over loaded. I think I would use a #10 with a 30 amp fuse, one at each end of that #10 wire, theres power at each end of that wire, there's a chance you could get a short somewhere between fuses. Dusty
