RE: Generator Exaust

With the Texas heat we are using our on board generator more than I thought we would to run the a/c. The exhaust comes directly out of the back of our Lance 1181, right beside the entry door. I've already decided to install a 90* pipe and direct the exhaust out the curb side of the camper. I have been looking for an extension set up to run the exhaust up. I can fabricate a 90* and pipe to clear the roof, not sure about the brackets since i really don't want to put holes in the side of the camper. I do keep coming across this Gen-Turi system. Has anyone used this setup? If so were you or are you happy with it? Does it do what it says? I have found the Camco kit for as low as $119 but not sure it is worth it. I use that same set up on my Gen set for the exhaust I have a Class C and the exhaust is on the drives side but it seems to find it's way into the rear of theRV and set's off the carbon monoxide alarm when I do not use the Gen-turi Exhaust Pipe, unless the wind is blowing other wise I would say it was well worth what I paid for the kit in 2008. Also if you can find it for that cost buy it. I paid just under that with the shipping from CW.

RE: Another Onan Problem

I don't know if this applies or not. with the solar you have all power functions still running of inventor making you think power is restored with the sub panel breaker. with exception of AC. I'd suspect you flipped the genny breaker. go to the genny and pull the panel off there is a master breaker that probably tripped. happened to me once all was well again. Did u start the genny with the ac on? there is a high load and it makes it difficult to start could have tripped the breaker as well. No I usually let the generator run for a few minutes before I start the A/C unit. I did reset the circuit breaker on the generator. Right now I am dealing with other problems that are more important (Family health matters.) than the Generator. Thank you for the replies. I will deal with it when I have the time.

RE: Another Onan Problem

The obvious answer is: Nothing wrong with your generator; the A/C has failed or the breaker is bad. Which breaker is it that trips ? Might be interesting to see what happens on shore power. When we turn on the A/C the generator quits putting out power, but it still runs. I had this happen once before when we first got the RV. I reset the circuit breaker on the Onan Generator and no problem , but now it keeps tripping when you turn the A/C on? I need to take the RV where I can hook to shore power. (Maybe go to the Elks Lodge for the week end)

Another Onan Problem

The Onan KY microlite 4000 generator in my RV runs, we turned the A/C the other day the circuit breaker tripped, the A/C quit. any ideas. I have reset the breaker switch. This is a 2005 Jamboree 26Q. Have had several problems with the Generator, Also had it in the shop and replaced the carburetor 3 times. Also this unit has solar on it.

RE: Woo Hoo..New AGM Batteries

MrWizard wrote: @ Mexi thank you @ Patrick surplus seller off Craigslist Server farm UPS backups? Rotated out of service Seller has sold out If you go Brand new from speciality battery seller $399 each Thanks. I can get AGM brand new for $275 each. Being as I need 6 to replace my Interstate flooded U2200 battery's I guess I will go that route. Have you had an experience with Trojan AGM battery's?

Also I wonder which ones of their battery's would be equal to Interstate U2200 6V deep cycle battery's

RE: Surgeguard Surge Protectors (schematics)

My suggestion is to buy a new PI unit. Field replacement parts - life time warranty - consider where you're at now... Buy a Progressive Industries Surge Protector they run circles around Surguard Surge Protectors

RE: Are TPMS sensors rugged enough for gentle off-roading?

I am thinking about a TPMS for my single axle trailer -- probably a good idea! But in doing the usual research, it looks to me like the sensors are sort of like little knobs that attach to the valve stem and stick out a little. Will those sensors stand up to low-speed off-pavement towing? (Rarely over ten miles an hour, and usually much less.) Will they get caught on brush and branches that stick out into the roadway? Can they withstand the gravel that will inevitably bounce up and hit them? Sorry if this seems like a naive question -- I searched the archives and came up empty. Thanks in advance for your advice! (And by the way, which make and model would you recommend? I'm looking for one where I can replace the batteries myself, rather than sending it back to the factory.) My Ram 2500 Laramie CC/LB 4x2 IL-6 6.7LCTD, has them. I was going to order a Ram Power Wagon 4x4 and they come standard on the Power Wagon 4x4. I was going to order a PW but could not get the LB/IL-6 6.7L CTD (Cummins Turbo Diesel) . So I would say they are good to go.

RE: Not a TriMetric, but for $20 might be worth trying out...

MrWizard I have an older system from AMSolar. I also have a Xantrex 2000W Prosine Inverter. The Xantrex Control Panel still works fine. The AMSolar control Panel took a dump and doesn't read correctly.(the leds went south) Other wise it works also. will this unit work with that system?

RE: Wow... I didn't drive my dually much last year....

Wait -- did you see the awesome garage/barn in one of the OP's shots? Where I live (southern Calif), that would be a multi-million dollar structure. Room for tools and equipment and vehicles and materials. Wow! Isn't that the truth! :S Also my 2016 Ram only has 1560 miles on it. It's still "Virgin"

RE: What are your favorite state parks to camp?

Hands down, the Anza Borrego Desert State Park in CA. Most other CA State Parks are now way over priced and overrun.The State is trying without success to balance the budget on the backs of out-of-state travelers, be it via airport taxes or state run services or entities. They closed or curtailed many minor State run Parks due to budget constraints but now are going to raise taxes once more on cars. There was an out-of-control era of CA State Park acquisition which finally became unsustainable. Many other states have wonderfully operated State Parks. jefe They already did raise the taxes on New Vehicle License Fee's. Feel the pain. I would rather stay at a BLM Campground but they are becoming few and far between also.

RE: Where to buy Progressive Industries EMS-PT30C

The best for RV use is the Viair,12 volt and will put out at least 120PSI. More than enough for your needs. I use This one I have the same pump with a different name. Nice pump. I have that same compressor plus. This one https://sp.yimg.com/xj/th?id=OIP.M7a53340fab2a9ed05637174875bde1c5H0&pid=15.1&P=0&w=300&h=300 You can get the Porter Cable Compressor at Amazon. Both work well. Good luck

RE: US2200 vs T-105

Brian - read up on the US BATTERY verses TROJAN look-alikes on-line.... They have some good reviews... Would be nice to know someone that actually has used those brands... I always like to look at how long they will produce 25AMPS... Roy Ken I have some older Interstate U2200 battery's in my RV. I am going to get Trojan battery's when I replace my battery's more than likely the AGM Trojans. I have had good luck with the Interstate Battery's nut they are no longer made in the USA, They are now made in China,(or so I have been told,not sure) the Trojans are made in America.
