RE: Residential Fridge Batteries - How many??

This seems to be a new trend that interests me. What sized & model is your fridge? Do you know the power consumption rate?

UPDATE Kia factory approved brand new transmission to be installed on Saturday. I say GREAT!!

RE: On the road with 12v charging problem

Easiest thing is to check the truck fuse first. After entering the camper I believe it goes to the converter fuse panel.

RE: Electric brake controller needed?

Yes you do. Anything over 2,000 pounds. I suggest Prodigy. Easy to install and very adjustable. Easy to understand

RE: Wanna camp in a BC provincial park? Fuggedaboutit

Wonderful NOT! Are the parks people aware of this? Seems very wrong to me

Car is back in the shop with more factory authorized testing. Will let you know what is decided.

RE: Refrigerator fan

Since the fridge makers had to back that unit with a warranty I would guess whatever it came with would be enough. However, your temps are sure not the norm. With all the added air flow do you notice a difference? You could be onto something

Excellent conclusion. Thank you. I had no idea that is how codes worked? Much apreciated. Yes, the van is at max probley over CVWR .

Had our Kia Sedona tuned up & serviced prior to a trip from Portland to Yosemite to hike. Leaving home the check engine light came on and went on and off for the tntire trip. Upon our return we were told by the dealer the transmission coded a problem. Car works fine, shifts well. Dealer wants to replace transmission via extended warranty. Great except that it will take two weeks to order & install new factory transmission. How can it be going out and still drive fine? wE HAVE TOWED WITH THIS RIG FOR 92k

RE: Layout of campgrounds

We camp Oregon State parks & USFS campgrounds. Some are as you describe. Much like parking lots. In my opinion they re all way too close to one another. Always that one group that ignores quiet time as it does not apply to them. It's an attitude & perspective thing I suppose. We spend little time in camp. Usually hiking kayaking or fishing .

RE: Financing of Fifth-Wheel Trailers

Save your money & pay cash. Always better to earn interest than to pay it. Look at the initial depreciation. Is there a worse investment? Possibly a boat.

RE: What are your rules for the awning?

I may roll up or leave out depending on forecast, wind blockage. I have got up at night and rolled it up. How is this for vagueness? Given your track record I would look into a wind sensor.

RE: New calming product for loud noises??

I have come to dread Independance Day and the week prior & after. Just an excuse to play with explosives IMHO. I quizzed the neighborhood kids about the meaning of the holiday. They are clueless. My dog sits & shakes. Fire departments are on high alert as is the ER. And by the way you kids get off my lawn.

RE: Television upgrades

Only special consideration that is different from a home TV is size. If you book dock a larger screen equals more power required. I would personally go with an extended warranty due to road vibration and temp changes.
Oasisbob 07/01/16 09:40pm Class A Motorhomes

The converter has served us well for TV etc,. Still does. I have my Harbor Freight horror stories but this is not one of them. Or is it? I am really stumped. Is there a way to test the output of this converter or what?
Oasisbob 06/29/16 07:13pm Tech Issues

I dry camp with my twin group 27 deep cycles running the TV & DVD player through a Harbor Freight 400 wat converter. Even when I connect directly to the battery I cannot power my friends CPap machine which draws much less than the 400 watt max. I can also NOT run a simple box fan. I am baffled as to why this does not work? Any thoughts? My batteries are fine and this is with a full charge. What's wrong?

RE: Nasty, Nasty Electrical Issue

Hat's off to you for trouble shooting tis one. This supports what I am always saying about integrity and pride of workmanship being sorely lacking in the RV industry. I would have probley ended up taking them to court if they could not have made it right. But that would have taken yeats no doubt

RE: Oregon coast September camping

Based on your previous comment sounds like if you do not have a space no biggie. I would just say that on the weekends a reservation is a solid idea. Enjoy

RE: Portable Generators

If my EU Honda ever dies I would consider a Yamaha. Honestly the quality of a unit will remain long after you forgot the price. And your neighbors will apreciate the quiet of Honda or Yamaha.

RE: sewer dump at home

I buried a ten gallon bucket with pipe and use it when I cannot dump while traveling. Worked well for several years. Send me a PM if you want specifics on how I did it.
