RE: Loss of partial power

I discovered that the OP double posted this in the MH section also. He came back and offered more info in that thread. He stated that it is now resolved and it was the salesman switch. I'm scratching my head over that.

Disconnected the battery and I have 120 goin in to the converter, and nothing on the out put of the converter. Chechen all over the converter and saw no more fuses other than the ones on the front. Brand and model of converter?

RE: Help me tow a stacker with an Avalanche

You guys have probably seen stacker trailers in campgrounds. They are designed to carry multiple toys by utilizing different levels and a lift. http://stackertrailers.com/structure/img6.jpg

RE: Help me tow a stacker with an Avalanche

If I understand correctly, you are talking about towing to the destination with the MH and then maneuvering into a parking space with the Avalanche? Providing you have a class 3 or 4 hitch there should be no problem. You aren't towing it so tow ratings are meaningless. Don't overload the hitch with tongue weight and be cautious about transmission temperature. Don't spend a long time doing low speed maneuvering which could overheat the transmission oil.

RE: 50A Power Cable Coming Apart

Mine has been that way for years. It is the outer insulating sheath shrinking but you are seeing the individual insulation underneath, it is still safe.

RE: Loss of partial power

Sounds like 50 amp service and the OP lost one leg of the service. Could be many locations but I would suspect a bad connection at a plug, receptacle, or inside the breaker panel.

RE: House Batteries

This is a follow-up to my original post. We got new house batteries and the generator came on as it should. I have learned a lot from our mechanic and from those who posted responses to my question. Thank you so much! Not trying to be mean because everyone had to learn at some point. Have you realized now that you need to put some effort into doing preventative maintenance for the batteries? They last a long time if provided proper care.

RE: Purchasing Dexter EZ FLex and wet bolt kit

Good company, I've ordered lots of stuff from Trailer Part Superstore/Eastern Marine.

RE: new battery dead while pluged in

Order I would test for diagnosis; 1. Breaker supplying power to converter 2. Fuse of power coming out of converter 3. Failed converter

RE: Aerodynamics Matter !!

If they moved the air conditioner, where would they put it? To remove it off the roof mean either hanging from a wall or reset in the roof (which means the unit is actually inside the camper, maybe boxed in with a decorative cabinet, still, it would be a head bumper! Under the trailer? Inside a jack knife sofa like some furnaces are installed. Then you have all the noise of the air conditioner actually inside the "box". However, with today's technology and creativity, I WOULD think someone could design a more sleek shaped air conditioner, even if it had to sit on the roof. Some manufacturers already put the A/C unit (or heat pump) inside or underneath but very few.

RE: RV insurance

Nationwide is a top notch insurer. I have had them on homes, cars, trucks, trailers, and motorcycles for over 30 years. Every claim has always been handled smoothly and easily. One benefit to Nationwide is that they are a mutual insurer. What that means is that as a policy holder you are an owner of the company, not a customer. It is similar to how credit unions operate. The Ohio Farm Bureau started Nationwide for the member farmers, of course now it has expanded greatly but you can join your local Farm Bureau to get substantial discounts on Nationwide premiums.

RE: Aerodynamics Matter !!

One (of the many) things that annoy me about the RV industry is the way they ignore basics of aerodynamics that could be simply accomplished for minimal cost. Look at all modern cars/trucks, they have become very slippery in design. The headlamps, mirrors, and even door handles have been designed to reduce drag. Now look at the typical RV with multiple A/C units, vents, antennas, baggage doors, and windows all sticking out in the air stream. Much could be gained at minimal cost by smoothing the body and components. Why can't those A/C units be mounted inside or underneath where they would be out of the flow? Why are all the other things just added to the surface with no consideration? Most of what the RV manufacturers have done regarding aerodynamics is for marketing purposes, not real gains on the highway.

RE: location of converter

Can't help on location but I'm curious how you know it needs replacing if you can't locate it?

RE: Better communication from GoodSam

I guess this isn't about this forum...because if it is, that's handled in Forum Help and Support, aka Forum Technical Support. Nobody is answering or addressing the many complaints posted to the Forum Tech Issues or the Mexico forum. So I disagree this is the right place to air this as RV.Net is surely part of GSE and GSC. Will someone address this issue in detail with possibly a time frame for a fix. There are still many problems with posting as well as access and I am still experiencing those as I write this. How dare they be unresponsive with all the money we pay for this forum!:S The forum works on a particular day - great. The forum doesn't work on a particular day - oh well, I move on. The forum administration owes me nothing.

RE: Huge Electricity Bill - Plot Thickens

...My brother on the farm has some sort of meter where the company must come out once a month read it, unlock something and push a button, then get a second reading. I don't know what that thing is.... A load meter has to be reset every month. If he has one he needs to do some research and consider getting rid of it. They are only beneficial to the power company.

RE: Reducing 12 VDC to 9 VDC

You can buy a adapter at Radio Shack with a 12 volt plug into a cigarette lighter, and 6, 9 and 12 volt output - adjustable. Check the amp rating, they have some only rated at 300 ma, while other models are rated over 1 amp. Basically they use a internal voltage reducer. . . Good luck, Fred. Radio Shack closed a year or so ago.

RE: Any other ideas while I have roof off?

Sirius/XM radio antenna? Regular radio antenna? Add vents? Add skylight? Really want to get crazy, add a skydeck!

At best the things you listed would be sub forums, not forums. It seems to me that there actually are too many sections now. The search engine is a piece of cake once you figure out one little thing; if you use the basic search, it only searches the exact phrase as the default. If you go to advanced search there are a plethora of options on how to do a search. After you do a search you can even do another search inside the first search. RV.net definitely has the best search capability of any forum I use. Here is an excellent tutorial; http://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/15372572/gotomsg/15372587.cfm#15372587 I opine that the people who complain about the search engine here simply have never bothered to learn how to use it.

RE: House Batteries

...the dead battery is the reason for the generator not starting.... Correct, the house batteries are used to start the generator. The concern is, why are the batteries dead? Go to this link, read and understand page one and two at least; http://www.marxrv.com/12volt/12volt.htm
