RE: Ownership rv resorts ... Are they all the same?

Not many happy property owners as every time the place is sold the dues go up to cover their mortage. I know for some it is probley fine. I can't get past the fact that those wheels underneath your rig are there so you can travel and go to new places.

RE: LED bulbs

They sure have come down in price. And I hear the quality is better as well. I went all LED three years back with the cheaper chinese units. So much better than original incondescents. Money well spent.

RE: Outdoor Shower

We use ours for washing sand off and showering the kids. We just let the water run onto the ground. Adults shower indoors

RE: We got bees nesting in undercarriage.

Wasp spray. Put the nozzle inside the hole. Dress apropriately and try to do it when it's the coolest part of the day. It happens

RE: SAFE WIRE GUAGE ?

Thanks for the great advice. Much apreciated and will file for in case the battery direct cord the manugacturere promised me does not work.I am skeptical as I only lost half a volt going through the trailer plug versus straight from the battery according to my electric tester. We shall see

RE: SAFE WIRE GUAGE ?

So Wagan Tech is sending me a battery direct cord free of charge. Will this work? We shall see. I am only losing half a volt from battery to inverter cable? Is there something I am not understanding here? Very possible

RE: SAFE WIRE GUAGE ?

After running box fan for four hours I get the following readings BATTERY 12.40 VDC OUTPUT END OF INVERTER PLUG 12/34 VDC I am awaiting call back from Wagan Tech. Given these numbers do I satill need a direct battery connection?

RE: SAFE WIRE GUAGE ?

As predicted by some of you I cannot run my 20 inch box fan on high or medium for more than a few minutes before the low voltage alarm sounds. It seems to work on low for several hours. So as suggested I need to connect directly to the battery. The factory inverter DC cord is kind of a specialty cord to this unit as there are two pins that plug into the inverter from a cigarette lighter style plug. Cannot locate a specif cord with clips for my battery that has the two pins. So should I cut off the cig lighter end and straight wire to battery? Power will still go through the factory cord. Any thoughts?

RE: SAFE WIRE GUAGE ?

Thanks to all who have contributed on my original post. Sounds like if I am over loading a curcuit I will blow a fuse? Also sounds like it might be safer to connect as close to battery, or battery direct. One more question. Is there a problem with running an extension cord from the inverter to the fan? Thanks guys

SAFE WIRE GUAGE ?

Bought a pure sine wave power inverter to run a 20 inch box fan. Works fine. I added three 12 volt DC outlets running off nearby light fixtures. Then I wondered if the wire for the light is thick enough to not over heat inside the wall if I run the inverter? Have no idea what the wire guage is. Should I be concerned ? I am kind of DC ignorant. What are your thoughts?

RE: POWER INVERTER? CONVERTER? ?

Thank you all. I now know what I need. Yes, this is almost a repeat of a previous inquiry but not quite. Thanks to all for your willingness to help. Much apreciated

POWER INVERTER? CONVERTER? ?

My current 400 watt modified wave unit duns electronics okay but will not run Cpap machine or box fan so I am told I need a pure sine wave unit. So what size unit would you suggest to run the above equipment? If I get a larger unit than what I need will it use more power even if I don't reach max capacity? I really am ignorant on this and Youtube video's have not really told me much. Any thoughts?

RE: How do you level when needed

I use the lego blocks for mny years. But then my rig is light. As previously suggested lumber is good call cut to size. Cement stepping stones work but are heavy

RE: Black tank wand sanitation and storage

For past 15 years I have had great luck using a aprinkler type internal flush kit. Easy to install and less, much less, passle than a wand. Best of luck
