RE: Link For ONE HUNDRED AMPERE DC/DC Solid State Relay

I have used SSR's (usually crydom) for many projects, usually when I need minimal switching power IE a battery device switching something with it own power supply. Or optical isolation of the switch, or insanely high switch speed / durability. For general switching in rv's I tend to use relays. For example SSR's have a .5 to .75 volt drop across them, hence the need for a heatsink several times their size. At high loads, what you save on switching current, you loose on load voltage.

RE: My Rogue Wave install...

What antenna are you using? I got a 15 db onmi, but it is 3.5 feet long, far to big to mount to the tv antenna.. I am working on another way to tip it up and lay it down..For crank up TV antennas the Rogue can be flat when it's down by mounting on the arm. I was referring to the added weight and length making the antenna hard to crank up (leverage).

Assuming you are going from 5er to 5er, the axles will only another 3 feet back from where they are now..

RE: Home Depot Credit Card Breach! Bigger Than Target? [UPDATE]

Sounds like it is time to "loose" the favorite credit card to the shredder, and have a new one issued... again...

RE: What do you carry for a jack?

I have a HF 20 ton Air Hydraulic Bottle Jack on the trailer. Both the truck and trailer have on board air. It is nice to flick a switch, shove the jack under the frame, attach the air line, squeeze the air valve and watch the jack do all the work.

RE: remember expansion plugs used to replace freeze out plugs

Can you access the hole from the inside? If you can fit your hand inside the tank, maybe a small SS screw with a rubber washer on the inside and a nut on the outside.

RE: onnan 5500 generator

Mine has a pair of 30 amp breakers, no 50 amp anything. Possible overheat?

RE: Stopped at weight station ROUND 2-Need advice

Towing my old TT with the 2500 I had the push pull, the dually didn't. Maybe try increasing the air pressure in the rear tires to sidewall max - for a stretch of highway - as a test. The only difference between my trucks is long bed VS short bed (which shouldn't amount to anything), and dual tire VS single. The 4 extra sidewalls on the dually may have made the difference.

RE: Using a Front Mounted Hitch to Park Trailor?

Be careful off pavement, you are putting all the weight on the front end, and removing (a little) from the drive wheels out back. A trailer that weighs less then the TV isn't to bad, but some TT weigh almost twice the TV..

RE: WiFi Repeater

I am in the process of putting a titanium bullet with a 15 DB Omni Antenna on the roof, and reuse an old Netgear WNDR 3300 router. The advantage of this setup is the netgear router has a 2.4 and 5.8 radio, and unlike most repeaters can repeat the wifi on a different channel then the incoming data. Normally you loose 3/4 of the bandwidth repeating the data on the same channel, with this type of setup there is no loss from that, and it is on both the 2.4 and 5.8 ghz. The Iphone 5 (and later) can connect to the 5.8 which I have NEVER seen used in a rv park (mostly due to short range and very poor penetration of structures aka rv's). Inside and outside there is no issues repeating my home wifi from 2.4 to 5.8. If you are slightly technical, DDWRT gives you MANY options of customizing your router.

RE: Towing through Eisenhower Tunnel

With a '13 duramax your only problem will be running people over uphill if you set the cruise. Downhill it should exceed the cruise by ~5 mph, then start downshifting to maintain it. Other then the merge and trucks pulling out in front of you, there is nothing to worry about.

RE: How to move a million pound load

As long as people don't raise their own food, sheer their sheep for wool, and knit their own clothes, (big) oil get whatever they want from where it is to where they are...

RE: built in generators

I run both ac's and the microwave off my onan 5500 without problems. Add the hair drier, toaster and coffee pot to the mix and things get exciting.

RE: Generator Options for Boondocking

I got a 2kw Costco generator 2 months ago for boondocking. I run the onan in the morning to quick charge the batteries, then run the costo portable off and on as needed to keep them up. The Costco is parallel capable, and has a Yamaha motor. FWIW my Honda 3000is is quieter under idle and load then the Costco unit. $600 for Costco 2k for Honda.. I got the second unit because I didn't want to leave a $2k generator sitting in the back of my truck, and the onan burns a lot of fuel VS the portable at low output.

RE: Live in CA, like the Stealth 21' TH.but?

per federal DOT awnings, ladders, lights, mirrors, aerodynamics, etc don't count in width or length measurements. It is the "cargo" area only. * The laws were written for truckers, not rv's BUT it is all there is.

RE: 2nd battery install in a GMT900 Suburban - TP2 option

When I dropped a second battery into my Yukon, I just ran a ground to the alternator mounting bolt, and a positive to the alternator 12v stud. Unless you know what it *should* look like, the only thing you notice is the lack of the covers on the cables on the new battery.
