RE: Electrical question: 2 fuses operate together in parallel?

A possible scenario would be where the power awning requires more amperage than one wire can carry. Therefore they have doubled up on the wiring, each wire would carry half of the load. From your description there are in parallel and not any shorts as the fuses would blow.

RE: Inverter Generator Help Please

Smart move to upgrade to LED lighting and 4 T-105's in series / parallel will certainly carry you overnight or more like 2 nights easily. One more upgrade to consider to get the most of a battery setup like that, would be to upgrade your converter and wiring to match. This would give better charging capabilities for a shorter generator run time. Depending on converter size a 2000 watt would be fine. No doubts a 3000 watt generator would power all your needs plus ability to use more 120 V loads. As for generators, well I'm a fan of the Champion brand. (Best bang for the $)

RE: Insulating window for winter

does anyone make a clearish material like the Reflectix stuff everyone is using. I like the Reflectix stuff on windows to keep heat and sun out but they block the view when in a window. There are threads about DIY Lexan or polycarbonate interior storm windows. Factory optional on Streamline, Avion and Silver Streak in years past, and obviously great with jalousie windows. Rarely ordered, unfortunately. But the threads about DIY on this forum replicate much of what those factory's did. Storage of Same is the other puzzle piece. Airstream may not have, I don't know. The older units had curved interior walls that would have made this difficult. Hard plastic would still be best. For my trailer l have used all of the techniques above. Sleeping beside the windows in winter was uncomfortable. I had acrylic cut to fit over the windows and secure with Velcro strips. The front window I cover with Reflectix, again secured with Velcro strips. The large picture window is covered with a shrink film storm window kit. All mods have greatly improved comfort particularly for sleeping. I use Reflectix on most but not all windows. Depends on heat load from sun in summer, and degree of cold in winter. There are several windows I don't cover at all for natural light. I use day/night shades on most windows and the three of the five lounge and kitchen windows are "open". Same for bath, open. I close off the rear bedroom entirely. Attention to roof openings, and door weatherstrip really pays off. So, Reflectix in main, and choices about where I am when awake makes it easier. I suppose I could try these clear film kits for those several windows "open" and see a benefit as reported by others. Hard interior storm windows will do the best job. I have employed all of those techniques in my trailer. The windows beside the twin beds made sleeping most uncomfortable. I had acrylic cut to cover them and secure them with Velcro strips. The large front window is covered with Reflectix. For the large picture window I used a shrink film storm window kit. All of the mods have made the trailer much more comfortable, especially for sleeping by the windows.

RE: Slow Cooker Cheesy Bacon Strata

Got me hooked. Wonder how that can be modified to do in a Dutch Oven?

RE: Champion 3100 Inverter

Supergenproducts These folks are excellent for sales and most importantly service. I own a pair of the 2000's with a parallel kit and a 3100. Just went 5 days with out power thanks to hurricane Matthew. Thanks to the generators we managed quite well.

RE: Any one have the Champion 3500 watt inverter generator?

Good friend of mine has 2. He parallels them to run his mobile cook / smoker rig. Loves it. No complaints. Runs A/C, refrigerator and warming rack.

RE: I - 95 through the Carolinas

No flooding issues. There some construction zones to contend with.

RE: Strongback Chairs

I have had 2 of the Strongback chairs for 2 years. Great chairs. Comfortable. They have held up well.

RE: What is the best BBQ grill

If you were to do a search on here you would find that the Weber is very popular. I can say that I've had mine for 10 years now and am very satisfied with it

RE: How about another "Cooler" question

I have several of the Coleman 5 day coolers. They do a good job, providing that you aren't constantly in and out of it.

RE: Anyone change to 40# tanks on tongue?

Any particular reason you want a cover? I have 40 lb. tanks on my trailer, never worried about a cover, but do have them secured.

Check all wire connections particularly grounds.

RE: Which Sewer Vent...

Another vote for the 360 Siphon. We had the rotating vents until a tree branch bent the shaft on one. Replaced with the 360 Siphon and IMO that works better. Simple design, low profile and they work.

RE: Generator suggestions

The above is very good info. But a little more info from you would help provide better feed back. Does your trailer require a 30 amp service or 50 amp? Do you have 1or 2 A/C units?

RE: 22' 0r 25'? Does Size Matter?

Hands down, a longer trailer will give you more storage and more 'living room'.

RE: How to keep fridge cooler?

Hint: put drinks in cooler, especially for kids. Keeps the number of times the refrigerator door opens down.

RE: Noisy A/C unit

After doing some research,I installed an Atwood. Much quieter than either a Dometic or Coleman's that I have experienced.

RE: Installing load adj. shocks, 94 Burb

Bolt the bottom bracket first. Then jack the axle up to position the top of the shock.
