RE: My consignment is overpriced!

What does your contract say they will price it at?

RE: Must do's in Branson, Mo.

Pack a lunch and try to avoid the traffic. Learn to take the 'yellow' route to get around all the downtown traffic.

RE: inverter, batteries,converter,tranfer switch, etc.

I think if you get your setup to run the Air Conditioners to run all night off the inverter/batteries, you will probably be the first. Good luck.

RE: Dish Tail Gater for ever REAUTHORIZING

I have to call them occasionally. I tell the rep it has been turned off too long and I need him/her to send a signal to my receiver. I may also tell them the error code on the screen. We do not have to go through their script. Only takes a couple minutes. I wonder if we are calling the same number/department?

RE: Am I reading/interpreting this correctly? Re:Tire Pressure

I guess this helps solve your problem of how to air them up to 110 :) I know it was a lot easier on me when I found out I didn't have to go to 110.

RE: Am I reading/interpreting this correctly? Re:Tire Pressure

I have weighed my MH, it is actual 11,340 lbs front (12,350 maximum), and 19,040 (20,000 maximum) on the rear axle with dual tires. I have the designated tires as shown below and got this chart from the Michelin website. I am dividing the actual front tire weight by 2 ( 11,340 / 2 = 5,670 lbs ). Using the chart, the front tires should be inflated to at least 100 lbs, while the rear tires ( 19,040 / 2 = 9,520 lbs ) should be 90 lbs psi. Having said all that, is that what all of you would do, or would you add extra psi and slightly overinflate? Sorry, I am new at this. 275/80R22.5 LRG 75 80 85 90 95 100 105 110 Single 4725 4940 5155 5370 5510 5780 5980 6175 Dual 8600 9080 9380 9770 10140 10520 10880 11350 Thanks, Tom PS. I hope this table posts OK, or it will be hard to read. There does not seem to be a preview option. Looks like you have a handle on it. BTW, your pressures of 100 front, 90 rear seems to be a pretty common result after people get their weights. Many of us add a little since we do not have 4 corner weights. I went with 105 front and 95 rear after adding 5 lbs for safety.

RE: How to inflate to 110 psi....

Here is the video showing the real way to do it FILLING RV TIRES TO 110

RE: How to inflate to 110 psi....

I run the diesel engine until I hear the pressure relief valve pop off. At that point I know it has at lease 130 lbs pressure in the tanks. Only then do I start airing up a tire. YOu should be able to go from 104 to 110 within a couple minutes. If the compressor kicks in again, stop and wait until the pressure builds up again. BUT, have you weighed the rig to see how much air is needed in your tires? You very well may not need 110.

RE: inverter, batteries,converter,tranfer switch, etc.

Just curious if the air conditioner will run off this inverter?

RE: Standard vs Residential Refrigerator

YOur problem will not be travelling between RV parks, but your plan to leave the fridge on overnight to cool down before a trip. With only 2 batteries, it looks like 4-5 hours would be max before your batteries get discharged below a safe level. Yeah, I am beginning to realize that. Couple of other questions: 1) Will my alternator from my truck charge the batteries in my RV? Yes 2) What if I use a small solar cell to trickle charge the batteries, I wonder if this will get me to my 18 to 20 hours of usage while in storage? I don't know much about solar 3) I assume that the cooling of the fridge is the same no matter if it is on 110volt or 12volt right? Meaning that the compressor and cooling system operates the same. Yes Like others, we do love our residential fridge and think you will too. You just need to understand the limitations and rethink the cool down procedure.

RE: Standard vs Residential Refrigerator

I have 4 six volt batteries and a 2000 watt inverter. There was a thread on another forum recently and the consensus was about 8-10 hours on 4 batteries without the engine running down the road. I tested mine at that time and left it on overnight. I got about 8 hours on my 4 batteries before the auto gen start kicked on at 12 volts.

RE: Need help with my sketchy battery cable situation

Are you 100% sure the red was on positive before you disconnected them? With the small black connected to the red and frame, I just don't see how that could be? I'm absolutely sure. And my water pump worked! Weird. I hope you get it figured out.

Time to stop. THe OP has already admitted he is just trolling.

RE: Coach?

Seriously? It's an RV! You know exactly what we mean when we call our rig a Coach. I've never had to explain it. It's not a trailer. It's not a fifth wheel. It's a large class A motorhome.

RE: Life - Flight type of insurance.....what do you do?

so I have looked at these different companies and they indicate they will arrange transportation including emergency air transportation, but without reading an entire contract, I can't tell if they will pay for an ambulance or air transport in an emergency. Say I call 911 for an illness, will they pay? I ask this as I was with my parents in Baton Rouge a few years ago, and my dad became sick. We called 911, and he was transported to hospital by ambulance. After a few days he was dismissed and we continued a revised version of our trip in MH. No air transport, no transfer of hospitals, no sending anyone home or to visit, just a simple 3 mile ambulance ride to hospital due to extremely high fever. If a participating partner of the AirMedCare Network does not transport you, you will be responsible for payment of the bill. Our membership program only covers flights by this network.
