RE: AC temp

Our air conditioner works alot better if we are parked under a big ole shade tree... Roy Ken And therein lies the answer. As most know by now its almost impossible to create a comfortable temp inside the coach while it is setting in full sun and 100 deg outside. Shade really helps big time..Ita so hot around Primm and Las Vegas Nv we had to park the coach and get a room for the night.The room was nice and cold. It was unlivable in the moho.And the a/c are in top shape.

RE: 6 blown tires and bent axel- help!

If this isn't proof that anyone buying a new trailer should automatically upgrade the tires I don't know what is. The chances of having 5 bad tires is slim to none. I'll bet you have axel alignment problems I had same problem yrs ago and thats what it was..

RE: A firearm for my B

Forget the gun since you are not a gun person. Instead, get a can of good bear spray. Learn about that. X2 especially when you can carry a gun in your rv in some states and some states you can't. I f the cops find a loaded gun in your rv in some states you can be arrested. (Illinois Ouch) This situation with firearms is so confusing you about have to carry a lawyer with you !!

RE: Dewinterization

I wouldn't leave the bleach in the system until the next trip. Rinse it out and sanitize again before your next trip if you feel it is necessary. Similar Post We have never "sanitized" a tank in 25 yrs of rving and we never got sick or died from not doing so. We flush and go..

RE: DISH TV - Rant - Unbelievable! How stupid!

there's no mystery here. I suspect that a lot of people don't return the receiver when service is curtailed. and when that happens the $100 deposit 'pays' for the equipment. X-2 I see nothing wrong at all.

RE: Attitudes

This site has helped me over the years, and given me ideas I'd never thought of. So "post on" everyone. I don't care if the question is asked a thousand times, each time there an answer, there's always a possibility I'll learn something I didn't know! This site has'nt helped me at all because I know it all.. Now theres one for ya..Have at it,

RE: EZPass warning.

It's coming to New Hampshire too... If you elect not to have one they'll just send you a bill in the mail, you don't have to pay it if you don't want to, just can't renew your license or reregistration, no big deal... My traveling companion refuses to get EZPass, on our trip to Niagara Falls he paid $47 more in tolls than me and I ended up having to wait at each toll for him. His reasoning is; EZPass can't be trusted with his CC#... No big deal ?? You cant renew your licence or registration ?? Wow I would call that a real big problem..Try driving without them and you may end up with s big problem !!

RE: Koehler 5 confidant generator

In your case I would check for bad connections and weak breakers.As much as an RV flexes going through it's life. Things get loose. Also I have noticed that. When it really gets hot the problems show up more often. Mine never throws a circuit breaker nor blows fuses. It just shuts down when 2 ac's try to run..

RE: Koehler 5 confidant generator

OK to end the debate Iam going to run one ac at a time, we dont use it that much anyhow so not going to drop a ton of money in it. Its normally just my wife and I and the rear ac will freeze you out in desert heat.otherwise both ac's run ok by themselves while powering everything else. I'm not going to tear into it because those units are a bear to work on. Thanks for all your replys..

RE: Koehler 5 confidant generator

Again I'm not a generator type of guy, other then I dinged on my Kohler 4K. From that experience I can only SWAG at what might be going on with yours. The Kohler has a computer board in it that senses the voltage and will kill the motor when the voltage gets low enough to damage things. For me it was a bad voltage regulator that was my problem. Kohler's are know for this going bad. Holding down the start button would defeat the board though. I'm guessing that your voltage regulator is working correctly, but the generator might not be putting out the power that it once did to barely (90 volts according to you) run two AC's. Since you have a Kohler RV generator your rig can not be very new, since they got out of the RV business awhile back. I would think things are starting to get weak with the old gal. If you look in the Kohler manual you'll see you need to do a certain amount of maintenance to keep them running strong other then just oil changes. I had very good luck with this business when it came to working on my Kohler A.S.A.P. Give them a call they are very helpful and they know what they are doing.Its a 96 Damon Intruder.. Like I said it runs one ac just fine @ 120 volts. Plus I can run everything else while the on ac is running. I t just wont take two.

RE: Koehler 5 confidant generator

Simple trick. Plug in a lamp with a 60-75 watt bulb. Turn on one AC and see if bulb dims some. Then turn on the second AC and watch the bulb. My guess is the bulb will dim right down and the generator will shut off. Who knows maybe that Kohler never could run two AC's at the same time. Maybe The idea was you would shut off the bedroom AC/door during the day. Then shut off the living area AC and the bedroom door during the night for sleeping. Did your rig ever run both AC's on the Kohler 5? Never did run both without slowing down to 90 volts,now it shuts immediately down when 2nd ac turned on. But it always dragged the voltage down to where you couldnt dare leave it running at that low of voltage. Everything else runs fine with gen. power either ac runs just fine when operated alone. You may be right about never being able to hold both on but the owners manual says you can run both (gen. only) 30 amp system so you can only run one at a time on shore power.
