RE: Help with Wiring

The inverter is a huge waste for charging a cell phone. Use a car charger and plug the cell phone directly into the 12vdc system.

RE: Trailer Jack for Coachmen 192 RBS

blocks under the jack...we went ahead and sprung for an Andersen Rapid Jack. Hope we never have to use it... That doesn't work with all rigs depending on the axles and the equalizer. Try it before you need it. Any bottle jack should reach if placed under the axle at the spring attachment point. That is the same place the weight is carried when on the road. In fact, when you have a flat tire, the jack may be too tall.

RE: Help with Wiring

Correct in the fact that it will work. Best is whatever method allows for the shortest path from the battery bank to the inverter.

RE: question

I've used a group 24 size battery box in the past. I think it held six bottles and battery boxes are vented.

RE: Flat Tires

...Any one have a solution for nails.... Stay off the roads. Second best; carry a repair kit and learn how to use it.

RE: Golf cart batteries vs storage vs charging??

Yes, you need to charge them and keep them charged. They probably were not fully charged when you bought them and they have been sulfating ever since.

RE: Amazon Reduces Free Shipping Minimums

But if you use the store credit card you don't need to belong to Prime, and still get 5 percent back on purchases. That saves you $99 per year. Easy returns are also done without Prime membership. You can have an Amazon/Chase credit card but without the Prime benefits unless you are a Prime member. The non-Prime card has rewards, but smaller.

RE: Vortex 2 replacement fan

...I replaced both of mine with the single speed model and added a PWM and a reversing switch.... Same here except I did not add reversing capability, I decided reversing was unneeded for our application. It was a great mod, we love it.

RE: Amazon Reduces Free Shipping Minimums

Walmart has declared war on Amazon. Walmart was slow to embrace online sales and Amazon built a huge market share while Walmart was napping. However, Walmart purchased Jet.com recently which was a smaller but growing competitor to Amazon. The CEO of Jet is now head of Walmart online sales. Walmart recently dropped their version of a free shipping club. In its place Walmart now offers free shipping on many items and no membership is needed. Amazon is responding to the increased competition from Walmart. In other news, Warren Buffet has recently sold the majority of his Walmart holdings and purchased a large amount of Amazon stock. Amazon has never made a profit and pays $0 dividend. Walmart pays approximately 3 percent dividend right now.

RE: extended warranty

I did not get the extended with my 2016. You know, the coverage doesn't start until the factory warranty expires, you can purchase the extended plan at any time. Dealers push the extended plans because about 50 percent of the price is profit to the dealer, the other half is the plan itself.

RE: How many amps

...I will bring 3 spare batteries in series.... ...Have not tried the solar system as of yet. We are full-time now. Have not done any dry camping as of yet.... You are talking about October, you have lots of time to prepare. Hook up the solar panels, disconnect from shore power and give it a try. At any point you discover that your current batteries aren't sufficient, plug back into shore power. Keep experimenting and by October you will be able to lecture on the subject rather than guessing based on internet chatter.

RE: How many amps

I would suggest you try it in your driveway and see how your batteries hold up.

RE: Toy hauler with another garage or living my space

What do you plan to haul? It would be impossible to put a 12' vehicle in an 11.5' garage.

RE: Bad Safe-T-Alert CO/LP detector

If I was ever inattentive enough to run my batteries down to 10 percent, I would really appreciate an alarm sounding.

RE: New to RV world, I have a few questions

Where you planning on parking that RV? You're going to pay lot rent (campground fees).

RE: Another Oldie. Kind of an oddball. What year???

Common trailer for horse people and LQ trailers are still built today. I don't think it is all that old, maybe 70's or 80's.

RE: i want one

Can I pull that with a half ton?

RE: New to RV world, I have a few questions

A car or truck loan is not an issue but you may find financing a used TT or MH to be difficult. Also, after taking out one loan the odds of getting the second loan goes down. I have always looked at it like this, a MH is great for moving frequently while a TT is best if going to be parked in one spot for a while. Of course, opinions vary.

RE: Replacement of window

Jalousie windows leak a huge amount of air, even single pane regular windows are a big improvement over jalousies. Unless doing a historical restoration, get rid of the jalousies.
