RE: Tiffin owners, is this true

This blogger states his 2017 Allegro 32SA has a 2000 watt inverter that feeds all the 120 receptacles and microwave and that if the batteries run low the 7.0 generator automatically kicks on. Is this true? I haven't seen this anywhere else. Perhaps he has done some aftermarket mods? Thanks, we're looking at moving up from our 13 year old 26.5 Lazy Daze as we approach retirement and look to be on the road for longer periods of time. Dave https://openroadscapes.com/blog/2017/4/10/the-inevitable-ab-comparison-part-2-camping-review Dave, I'm the blogger and these features were all Tiffin factory-installed on my new coach, not aftermarket mods. -- Bill Seems to me like the question was asked and answered not sure why this is already 4 pages. Having said that we had auto start generators on USAF crash trucks in the 1950's.

RE: Old School Wiring Gurus Please Step Inside (headlights)

ragtijnet1 has a good idea but if that doesn't work you may have to install relays to redirect the voltage to the proper prongs.

RE: Laptop -- Charging Brick -- Surge protector ???

If you are worried about it buy a single outlet surge protector very cheap insurance. I would go one step further and buy a surge protected power strip you can use the multiple outlets for printer, modem or router protection. Both use MOV's that protect from voltage spikes higher the joules the higher the protection. Jules is normally printed on the power strip. Between 1,000-2,000 joules protect: Laptop/Notebook Tablet Router Printer Power Tools

RE: 1985 holiday Rambler Kohler 7cm21

I sent you a PM on how I did it same generator. As mr wizard said. But yes an electrician can find the wiring and do a break out to a box with An extension cord so you power the rear unit, or maybe install the selector switch if you don't have one My advice get an electrician and show him this post Do not try this your self

RE: '14 FW Bounder 36E SP/Gen. go off when engine is turned off

Sounds like a bad converter not charging the battery and no 12V to power the 12V side of things. Even with a dead battery the converter should have enough power to light the interior lights when plugged in to shore power. I don't know what kind of coach you have but I suspect you have a switch that kills 12v power for storage that may be in the off position.

RE: ZTE Mobley with ATT unlimited plan to replace my HughesNet

Here is another one. Do your research many devices will do what you are looking for. The Mobility is a neat device however, if you have poor cell phone reception it really is not the answer for high speed internet. https://www.amazon.com/TP-Link-Wireless-Portable-Compatible-TL-MR3040/dp/B0088PPFP4

RE: Kwikee Steps parts

I had the same problem motor worked from the battery and then found it was the 4 way connector corroded. I could measure 11.5V out of the connector but corrosion would not allow enough current to pass.

RE: Generator

You are not crazy this has been posted several times in the past you need to do a search on the problem I just don't remember the cause.

RE: Water pump chattering

The pump cuts off once a set pressure is reached. Could be a bad pressure switch on the pump or I would suspect a restricted water flow allowing a pressure high enough to shut off the pump. If it happens on all faucets restriction probably between the 1st faucet and pump most likely at the pump outlet.

RE: AT&T Unlimited LTE Hotspot $20 without AT&T phones

Anyone have any idea of where I can download a USB driver for the Mobility? Google or ZTE site not much help lots of drivers but none for Mobility I was going to download a cell phone USB driver but don't know. I would like to connect to USB port the computer sees it but says no driver for ZTE Mobility.

RE: AT&T Unlimited LTE Hotspot $20 without AT&T phones

Well the Mobility is NOT sold as a standalone someone came up with a simple way to use it without being in the vehicle. You can also tether the Mobility to a router for more than five users at one time and a better wireless range. The HUM "may" have a way of doing the same thing I don't know I do not have a Verizon account and figured it might be of interest to someone other than you that has a Verizon account so they can check it out. ATT could just as easy update your Mobility to shut of at 10 minuets no exceptions if they so desire after all it was an update that let you have it on for 24 hours a day.

RE: How to Tighten RV Awning Springs over the slideout

Don't remember what kind I had but when the spring broke I looked up the web site and they had a manual you could download with instructions. Easy job just be careful what kind of tool you use you do not want the spring to suddenly unroll while tightening you might eat the tool.

RE: $200.00 thrown away.

When you just don't have the skills to do a job you are at the mercy of the tech and just have to hope for the best. From most of the post I have read on here the mobile tech were competent and saved the day in that case you are happy to pay. On the other hand when you have the skill and no longer can fix things due to age (me)you can oversee the work even though the mechanic really does not want you to. It doesn't take long to figure out if the tech doesn't know the job and you intervene by telling him how to do it or fire him.

RE: AT&T Unlimited LTE Hotspot $20 without AT&T phones

Verizon has come out with "HUM" a device similar to Mobility but a LOT smarter it is also 22GB but you must have a Verizon plan to add it. The way I read it this is not a stand alone plan. Also reads several pins of the OBDII port so it may sense data to determine if in a vehicle and "may" not be used outside vehicle. Manual says turns off 10 min after key off.

RE: AT&T Connected Car

Question was asked on Howards forum and the answer is "not available for international markets" as stated in the ATT contract. One individual tried it (I think he was on a cruse ship)and it would not work. There is an option to select international data that you can check in the Mobility but apparently you will not have international data even if checked. I did not click on the option during set up since I wouldn't need it. Others have asked about Mexico but I did not see a post on anyone trying it.

RE: quadrajet replacement

IMO the Q-jet is a PINA to rebuild compared to just about any other carb. I replaced one a Blazer that I used to race offroad with the Holly easy to rebuild or setup.

RE: Serious Flaw in Firefox and Chrome Browsers!

Lower left using FF 53 shows apple site but when I click on the link Bitdefender calls it a phishing site and blocks it. I guess FF 53 is not yet up to speed thanks for the info and fix.

RE: AT&T Unlimited LTE Hotspot $20 without AT&T phones

You can put the sim card into another hotspot and most likely nothing will happen but ATT's contract states you can not swap to a phone. Others have tried and received an e-mail while others have gotten away with swapping to a phone and have no feed back... go figure. Once you swap look at your account and you will see instead of Mobility it says "unknown device" so they do know you violated your contract and are subject to cancellation.
