RE: Generator mounting for pick up

I see nothing wrong with your welding job. I can say for sure it's a lot better than what I would do. I never learned how to weld. Good job.

RE: Goal zero yeti 150 & cpap

You need to post what model Cpap Machine you have. My machine is a Respironics M Series BiPap. It runs on 12v. I use a 12v receptical by my bed in the RV to power my machine.

RE: Synthetic oil questions

My Ram 2500 IL-6 Cummins Turbo Diesel I use Rotella T-5 15/40 Synthetic Blend. In my 2005 Fleetwood 6.8 L V-10 I use Motorcraft Synthetic Blend. In my Old 1995 7.3L "460cid" V-8 I used Motorcraft 10/30 Synthetic Blend Oil. I change the oil and filter at about 7500 miles or 6 mo. which ever comes first. My 1995 Ford had over 200K on it when I traded it in on my Ram Truck. It leaked more oil than it burned "Marked it's Territory"

RE: Cajon Pass I-15 fire closure

It's must be bad when you can see the smoke in San Diego County. The local news helicopter showed a shot of the smoke. I know they are up high, but still they were over north San Diego city when they showed it.

RE: surge protection

I haven't heard those "sad" tales here. both progressive and surge guard seem to be fine. but get a multi-function surge protector, $250 and up, not the $90 wonder. bumpy What Bumpyroad said. :B I like the Progressive Industries Surge Protectors.

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

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?

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.
