RE: Stove light upgrade

To answer the question simply its only been in service one complete season of stove top and oven use... I know our use is simple baking biscuits and frying bacon mostly... I did this mod in the spring this year and noticed no cracking or heat checking in the acrylic lens covers... Hengs oem lens cover is plastic and also the filter retainer are located closer to the stove top heat source... Answer#1 not a silly ? but yes most RV lighting and fans are 12v...

RE: Stove light upgrade

Wiring is all from original switch from stove I believe one screw needs to be removed from stove to gain access to wires and drill two holes for wires... LEDs are from walmart boating section installed with self tapping screws into top of hood being carefull that the screws land in void in cabinet... Less than thirty min install and crisp white light...

RE: Another digital thermostat question

It functioned fine as in no more 6 degree temp swings but the switches located on the bottom are a PIA for my non dainty fingertips to operate. I used it till my WR thermo arrived which was only 2 days. I also have the toggle switch hi/lo mod which works well for ac units... http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y60/yamadooed/RV/18B7D937-ED20-4322-9F87-8F39CE56673D_zpsqxznb768.jpg width=640 Moderator edit to re-size picture to forum limit of 640px maximum width.

RE: Another digital thermostat question

I installed the same thermostat and removed it after I found the one I wanted. They also sell heat only models for $25. http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y60/yamadooed/RV/C7B5E1C6-D44D-4B7E-ABEE-B43D93FE37A4_zpsqa3qzsrz.jpg width=640 White Rodgers Thermostat with backlight and current temp and setpoint temp display. http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y60/yamadooed/RV/ED0FC7C8-B1F4-4C96-805D-358321906D31_zps9hhtz6oh.jpg width=640 Moderator edit to re-size pictures to forum limit of 640px maximum width.

RE: Another digital thermostat question

The thermostat is just a basic on-off switch on a two wire system.

RE: All Wheel Drive

I would opt for the 4wd so that 95% of the time I can keep it disengaged. Then for the 5% of the time I need it its only a pushbutton away. I always opt for 4wd with lsd which I believe will outperform any AWD system either on or offroad when engaged. FYI I have never needed to engaged 4wd when towing the camper. (yet)

RE: 3 prong 50 amp plug to 4 prong 50 amp ????

To simplify couldn't you just add a four prong plug to the welder? To the OP use the 30a 120v rv outlet inside... If the barn is correctly wired with a subpanel where a welder outlet ground would terminate at two ground stakes outside the building and not bonded as a main panel in the house would be.

RE: wire for 30 A

Stranded #10 thhn wire is fine actually most would be better than solid wire. As for colors you'll need a white and a green or tape to make the wires white and green.

RE: Argg morons

FOTD In the 1910's Goddard became world-famous for his ideas about "feeble-mindedness" particularly his belief that it was a hereditary trait. His seminal work, The Kallikak Family, studying two strains of the same family (one strain considered normal, the other considered "defective") became an international bestseller and became extremely popular in Germany under the Nazi regime. He personally instituted a testing system at Ellis Island in order to keep these "feeble-minded" people out of the United State used to reject an estimated 80% of potential immigrants and forcing them to be deported back to their home country. It was in the midst of Goddard's work on intelligence testing that he coined the word "moron." He created a classification system for those on the bottom end of the intelligence scale: people whose IQ was between 0-25 would be classified as idiots, people with an IQ between 25 and 50 would be imbeciles and those with an IQ between 50 and 75 would be classified as Goddard's own invention: morons. He derived the word from the ancient Greek moros meaning dull or foolish.
