Thanks, All. Turns out it was a combination of needing the bigger extension cord and the GFI where we plugged into the house kept tripping. All is working now and we are being careful to turn off the AC before plugging anything else in. It's all a learning experience!
Can anyone suggest a fix for our power problem?
We are borrowing a 1996 Four Winds 350E from some friends of my parents, and after getting it set up alongside the house (we are plugging into residential power only), the refer and water pump were operational, but the breaker on the coach for the AC flipped off. After getting that back on, it took several tries to get the AC and fan to start working again. Got everything going, and within 15 minutes, all power to the coach was gone, and the panel on the coach was all fine -- no flipped switches. All the breakers in the home we are hooked up to are also fine. We are using a standard power-tool-type extension cord with adapter to the rv cord, which is what the owner told us to use. Do we need to look next @ fuses? There are two- 30amp, one- 20amp, and the rest are 15amp.
Any help for these newbies would be greatly appreciated. This is suppose to be our home for the next month while our home is being constructed.
That... is roughly the MSRP for a next to the bottom E-Trex.. Just so you know how good a deal it is.
The E-Trex is a good receiver, but it has no mapping features.. It will track and it will POINT to your destination, but that's all.
OH, I use Microsoft S&T, with dongle, cost me $67.oo at Micro Center when I bought the store out this fall.
Intersted in what everyone uses, as I am a newbie to GPS stuff, thus my online find. OP's suggestion I will try also.
Is it true that sometimes these things will navigate you and your RV into a not-so-good situation where it's impossible to continue, back up or turn around? I've heard some horror stories.
As always, thanks for the input.
