RE: Generator Usage in Parking Lots/Public Streets

We have a Onan built in on our fifth wheel toy hauler. We stop generator is running. My 7.3 diesel at idle is louder than the generator at full load. And my truck is not loud. In my option run your generator and do not worry about it.

RE: My generator is surging

Take a small screwdriver and pry in several places between the bowl and plastic. It will come off. I have the same generator.

Did you connect the battery backwards when you replaced it last week?

RE: Questions about power for overnighting

I have a onan 4kw flat twin 1800 rpm generator. When my truck is idling you can not hear the generator. Yes it will make some noise it just sounds like a quite car.I have a automotive muffler on it not a generator silencer.

RE: Questions about power for overnighting

That is why we got a toy hauler. Installed 4kw generator and have at 30 gallon on board fuel tank. Pull into parking lot start generator. Watch some TV go to bed with A/C running all night and make coffee and breakfast in the morning. Pull into restarea or parking lot traveling and push button and everything works. Stop at antique shops spend several hours and have a nice cool RV to go to. If you want A/C get generator.

RE: Broken window temporary repair

Wow, I was just giving a inexpensive way to temp. fix and seal a window for winter storage. Last window I put Plexiglas in only cost $30 and was cut for me and installed. I later put in glass for permanent repair.

RE: My towing "faster" experience.

Sounds like our travels. We get passed by the same vehicles 4 to 5 times a day when traveling. We drive 55 to 63 per GPS and average 50mph at the end of the day. The faster vehicles have not made much better time than us. We also stop every two hours to get out and have the dogs take us for a walk.

RE: Broken window temporary repair

For temp. repair i would take window out. Take it to glass shop and have Plexiglas installed in the frame for winter. It will scratch easy but will hold up for awhile. I did that on our last truck topper side window used tinted Plexiglas.

RE: Noisey House Generator

We have a Onan 4BGE that I installed in our toy hauler. My truck is louder then the generator. I installed a automotive muffler on it and ran about 8 feet of tailpipe to quieten it down. The 4bge is a twin cyl.direct drive running at 1800 rpm's. The newer generators are single cyl. belt drive engines running at 3600 rpm's with small mufflers. To me they are very loud. I think your Onan can be quieter you might have to change a few things. Also check your motor mounts.

RE: Let me know what you guys think of this travel plan

We stay at truck stops when we travel. Use the generator when we want to (even all night). Who is going to get mad a truck with a refrigerator unit? We do ask where they would like us to park and we also top off with fuel before leaving. Man thing is enjoy your trips. We find the trip can be a fun as you want or as boring. The wife always wants to stop at all the antique shops so some days we do not travel far before finding a truck stop around 8 or 9 pm. We use rest areas most of the time for a short nap or rest or to cook lunch or supper.

RE: Running generator for 12+ hours?

Fla 904. I drive 55-63 mph. At the end of the day I only get 50 mph. I have tried to do better but pulling trailer, stops, fuel and traffic I only go 50 mph average for the day. You are not going to want to drive that long with a RV. We travel 250-350 a day that is 5 to 7 hours. Enjoy the trips, we have a beautiful country to see.

RE: Running generator for 12+ hours?

Run the generator as long as you need power or have fuel no problems there. My thoughts on 800+ miles a day is going to take 16 to 18 hours in/or pulling a RV.

RE: Propane Tank O ring Replacements

I would go to a Propane Co. They should be able to correctly help you. Not something to play with.

RE: Skylight on roof over shower

Why not just get a newer outer cover that is larger? Rectangle shaped outer cover would work as you seal the edges anyway. Just my thoughts.

RE: keeping the fresh water tank sanitary over the winter

Think about this. When was the last time you sanitized you water lines and water heater tank at your house? Not saying you don't need to sanitize,just that it might be overdone a little. If you ever seen the stuff that comes out of a fire hydrant you might not drink or bath in it. What might grow in you tank is nothing compared to what is in your house water system. Yes, you need to clean your tank and lines when you first get your RV, after that your RV system is a lot cleaner than a lot of city water systems.

RE: Installing stabilizer quick release brackets

It looks like a great mod. Also it sounds like you stabilizers were mounted to close to the ends of you RV. Look at page 3 of mounting instructions. I moved ours to the correct location (mounted to far back from MFG.)and now no clearance problems. http://norcoind.com/bal/downloads/manuals/Leveling%20Scissors%20Jack%20Manual.pdf
