RE: Adding Electric Camper Jacks

Our first RV was a 1986 Conestoga camper with hydraulic jacks. It wasn't set up for electric jacks but I was able to make a set of Reico-Titan's work. You will be glad that you upgraded!

RE: Arctic Fox Mattress Replacement

We bought an RV sized Queen mattress from Lastingimpressionsfoam.com for our 5th wheel. It matriculated to the Arctic Fox 992 when we traded the trailer for the camper. Even though the AF992 has a full size queen mattress the old still works, there is just a 4" gap down at the foot area which is convenient for storing a few things. At 6' tall, I still have plenty of length on the mattress and it is just like sleeping at home(where we also have the same companies mattress).

RE: Generator quieting

Soundown Acoustical Open Cell Foam. http://www.soundown.com/Section%202%20PDFs/2.1%20PDFs/Acoustic%20Absorp%20Foam.pdf So far I have had no issues whatsoever with the plastic/rubber furniture feet not holding the genset in place. You could go with small wood blocks that are screwed to the bottom of the box and drilled with a wood bit to size for the generator feet.

RE: Generator quieting

I refer back to your's and other's pictures as I work. I am making good progress on mine and at the point to add the foam for the generator seal at exhaust end on mine and realized you used the foam without the decoupler layer in it! It appears the foam I have will not make a good seal. Jim What foam are you using? If it is the Soundown and you are curving the 3/16" board that it is mounted to it should make a great seal. You will want to position the round furniture insets that the EU2000i feet set into so that the generator snugs up tight to the foam and will not slide away from it.

I have been running my Resmed S8 Elite CPAP with Humidaire 3i using an AIMS 600/300W Pure Sine Wave Inverter for over 7 years so far.

RE: Generator quieting

I have looked at your pictures several times and appreciate the temperatures you gave me in another thread. I am experimenting with duct board doing this and it just about has me beat trying to shape it around the exhaust area and am thinking about Soundown for that area. It appears that you put a 1/2 inch plywood divider there with the soundown facing the genset as a gasket, is that correct? Thanks Jim Jim: The plywood is 3/16" which allows it to bend and conform to the curve on the exhaust outlet bezel. Yes, the Soundown is what creates a gasket like seal between the plywood and exhaust end of the EU2000i. Just got back from a dry camping trip and had the neighbor ask if he could take photos of my sound deadening box. He had a Honda Genset just like mine and you could hear his in my campsite louder than mine.

RE: Honda generator enclosure fan question

Thanks for the input and info. I am progressing a bit with this and neglected to get some before temps on the honda. There are 2 kazillion articles on the web and I can not find one with operating temps. I know they are there I have saw them! Anyone have temps or a link? Here is a link on RV.net post for a box I built for our EU2000i http://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/28718017/srt/pa/pging/1/page/5.cfm I neglected to include the temps recorded. With a remote sensor placed near the exhaust outlet of my box the temp recorded was 134F after running for 15 minutes. The inside box temp with the sensor placed near the top handle of the Honda remained at the outside air ambient temperature of 72F. No fans added to move air inside the enclosure. The key as others have noted is to isolate the exhaust(both genset and motor) from the engine side. I have used this box enclosure on 4 camping trips this year and it has never shut down other than running out of fuel or me turning it off.

RE: Honda generator enclosure fan question

You could power the fans using the 12V outlet on your Honda generator.

RE: Foot pads for corner jacks?

8"x8"x1.5" ABS Plastic. I routed out a .25" deep area on each pad slightly larger than the jack pad. They went with the camper when we sold it in 2001 and bought a 5th wheel trailer. Now that we are back to a TC I just use some Trex deck material cut to 10" lengths. I like the horse stall mat idea, and have a piece that might be re-purposed.

RE: Sure Start + Honda EU2000 = 13,000 btu Coleman Mach

Any comments on using SPP6 vs SPP6E? SPP6E is for 220V applications. SPP6 is for 110V applications. https://www.amazon.com/SUPCO-SPP6-Start-Relay-Capacitor/dp/B0002YTLFEhttps://www.amazon.com/SUPCO-SPP6-Start-Relay-Capacitor/dp/B0002YTLFE https://www.amazon.com/Supco-Electronic-Potential-Relay-Style/dp/B0071OXD8Ehttps://www.amazon.com/Supco-Electronic-Potential-Relay-Style/dp/B0071OXD8E

RE: Washington & Oregon Sights One Should See

Hosmer Lake? Between Bend and LaPine. Homer Lake on the Cascades Lakes Scenic Byway. Lots of beautiful lakes and campgrounds in the area with good fishing.

RE: Tires Again

After checking with the local tire shops they could not source Maxxis Load Range E. I told them that I could get them from Amazon. They said to buy them online and they would mount/balance for me(for a fee). I still saved money.

RE: Replacement mattress

lastingimpressionsfoamdotcom sells RV sized memory foam mattresses. Since we have memory foam mattresses in our sticks&bricks sleeping in the RV is just like sleeping at home. They almost always ship the next day and the mattress arrives quickly. It will be compressed but heavy. I was able to muscle it into our RV and then take off the wrapping that keeps it compressed. Love our Lasting Impressions mattress!

RE: Olympian wave catalytic heaters

I have been using an Oly Cat model Wave 6 since 2011. I even installed a second CO monitor that has a digital readout in the RV. Highest CO reading has been 17ppm and I cannot identify if that is from the heater, oven, outside generator or something else. It usually indicates 0ppm. I do use it for comfort heating overnight as well as daytime if the outside temperatures get down into the 30's

RE: Installing plexiglass on screen door

Most screen doors have a channel on the inside around the door areas. If you have a piece of Lexan cut to fit inside those channels the Lexan material has enough flex that you can fit it in. Then use some window screen vinyl spline rope to hold it in place.

RE: Security Alarms on Doors

I installed this on all the doors/windows in our 5th wheel where someone could enter/exit. Even put some on outside storage doors. http://www.harborfreight.com/six-sensor-wireless-home-alarm-94799.html
