RE: Solar panel System

Ah yes, I remember the early days of my Solar Quest and trying to find good info about Solar basics, such a fun time. Look and research the sites others have listed above, beware the cheapest "kits" and another site to visit would be Handy Bob's Solar. Solar Power is a great thing to have when it is put together correctly. I boondock almost 11 months a year and rarely start the generator. Have a fun time and enjoy your Solar System.

RE: New Turbo on - still sluggish on hills - fuel?

Do yourself a favor and go to a Performance Diesel Shop that caters to the Light Truck/RV crowd. Tell them your problems and what you have done. Let them run your rig on a Dyno with their test equipment. At the very least your fuel tank should be dropped and cleaned and the fuel system checked by a pro instead of a guesser.

RE: Setting center angle for solar panels

During the Summer I leave my panels flat, no need to tilt.

RE: Sewer Discharge Setup

It appears you may be educated beyond your intelligence.

RE: Water pump for water barrel...

Yep, I have the same for filling our trailer with fresh water except I use a 75 gallon water bladder. I bought a rv water pump and have a extension cord to go to the trailer batteries. Work great.

RE: Toilet, it only took one time.

It appears that having the wife keep the toilet well waxed would keep everything slipping and sliding away.

RE: LP Tank Wax

Forget the tanks, tell us more about the wife waxing the RV. I need to know more When we got together we agreed to split the chores, she would do the cooking, cleaning, and the laundry you know the Womanly stuff, and I would do the house repairs and updates, the mechanical work on cars, trailers and such, and the outside maintenance, you know the Manly stuff, and it has been working great all these years. But you all should read this to understand how to treat a woman as she gets older : My wife just washed and waxed the 5er and it only took her two days to do the job. She is getting older and slowing down some but it is important for men to remember that, as women grow older, it becomes harder for them to maintain the same quality of trailer cleanliness as when they were younger. When you notice this, try not to yell at them. Some are overly sensitive, and there’s nothing worse than an oversensitive woman. She had to take a break when she was only half-finished washing and waxing the 5th Wheel. I tried not to make a scene. I’m a fair man. I tell her to fix herself a nice, big, cold glass of freshly squeezed lemonade and just sit for a while. And, as long as she is making one for herself, she may as well make one for me, too. I know that I probably look like a saint in the way I support her. I’m not saying that showing this much consideration is easy. Many men will find it difficult. Some will find it impossible! Nobody knows better than I do how frustrating women get as they get older. However, guys, even if you just use a little more tact and less criticism of your aging girlfriend or wife because of this post, I will consider that writing it was well worthwhile.

RE: One or two generators?

I have two Yamaha EF2000iS generators, and they work together through the connecting cable. My question is; is it always necessary or desirable to have both generators running? I know I need them both for the AC, but what If I'm just watching HD satellite TV? Anyone know? How about installing a small inverter for the TV and Satellite Box? I'm sure your RV'ing neighbors would sure appreciate having a quite night instead of listening to your generators drone on and on and on......

LP Tank Wax

What kind of wax do you use on your LP Tanks? I have been having the wife wax them with the same wax that she uses to wax the toilet but I wonder if she should be using a wax made for metal, like a Carnauba wax. I have a bit of compulsive disorder and like to keep things clean. So before we roll out I have her wax and polish the trailer every time. I want her using the best possible wax for the LP Tanks.......So what do you have your wife use?

RE: Adding a 15/20A external connector

I added the 15 amp Marinco Connector above. It works great for a add on addition powerwise and there is no opening for critters and such, also it was easy to install.

RE: Shower draining too slowly

We went out and bought the Zip-It at Lowes and ran it in the shower drain, you wouldn't believe how much hair came out of it. The shower drain works great now and we Zip the shower about every three months.

RE: COMPLETE: Fluorescent to LED Conversion

I replaced my fluorescent lights with LEDs some time ago and agree the instant on is a great benefit in my Toyhauler garage when the cooler weather hits. Another thing that I just read about is that mosquito's aren't attracted to the light of the LEDs- they hate something in the light, and come to think about it I do not seem to have any flies buzzing around the light either either.

RE: What hose is needed to convert to 100 lb Propane tank

When I was using a 100 lb. propane tank, I just had a replacement hose made that was 6' long and removed one short hose out of my regulator and screwed in the longer one and fed it out of the bottom of the propane compartment. My local propane dealer stopped by about every two weeks and refilled it. No problems.

She had to take a break when she was only half-finished waxing the toilets in the 5th Wheel. I tried not to make a scene. I’m a fair man. I told her to wash her hands and fix herself a nice, big, cold glass of freshly squeezed lemonade and just sit for a while.
