RE: Dometic v.s. Duo-Therm Hard Start Kit - yikes, help....

If you have an inverter/charger like Prosine 2.0 and it is properly installed, try to start A/C with inverter ON. Normally when generator is running the inverter is in STAND-BY mode. When the compressor bogs down the generator, the inverter takes over for a moment and A/C start instantly. Totally painless.

RE: What does 4000 VA mean?

VA rating like GVW rating is a maximum rating. A generator rated 4000VA can not supply more than 4000W of power. And it can only do it if the load is purely resistive or power factor of the load is 1.0. Any other loads, inductive or capacitive will cause loss of part of VA that will not do any work. Any capacitance or inductance of the load will only affect transient states in DC circuits but in AC circuits in plays major role. Capacitance of the load in AC circuits causes current peaks to occur before voltage peaks and inductance of the load causes voltage peaks to occur before current peaks. This phase shift has to be eliminated for most efficient operation-thus power factor correction. The converter with poor power factor correction will cost you extra every time you use it, just like a car with poor mileage.

RE: RV Tires

I have same tires & same load range on my motorhome. They are excellent, much better than GY G670 that were on the motorhome before.

RE: ez106 oil plug

I have it in 2002 F53 w/6.8lV10. EZ 106 is the correct valve. I like it better than Fumoto because it has o-ring seal in grove instead of nylon washer and it has removable extension for attaching a hose. I have these valves in all of my vehicles. To prevent accidental release of oil and possible vandalism I installed stainless steel worm clamp on the end of the valve to prevent release lever from moving. Just be careful when installing the valve-use torque wrench. Draining the oil is a dream, not a drop on the ground. I have three extensions with different length of clear hose depending on which vehicle I am working on. The remaining oil in the pan is not an issue to me, there is oil left in places all over the engine that cannot be drained anyway.

RE: What's everybody using to mount GC batteries?

Too bad. They work well for me (for years). Perhaps you can use lids only as a tray, only about 1.5 to 2" high.

RE: Drawers won't stay shut - Argh!!

To lock my drawers in locked position I have to lift the front little, then push to close and down. When you now pull on the handle the drawer should not open. Try it with yours. Sliders have built-in hooks that have to be engaged.

RE: GEL versus AGM

For the battery expert you are Mex, you know very little about gel cell batteries. My batteries were manufactured by East Penn and they are sold under dozens of labels including West Marine. There are currently dozens of manufacturers worldwide producing gel cell batteries for solar and marine use including Fullriver, Mastervolt, Deka, Trojan, East penn etc.

RE: GEL versus AGM

They are four 180Ah golf cart size batteries. Same size as T105.

RE: GEL versus AGM

Tons of misinformation in this tread. I am an actual user of four 6V gel cell deep cycle batteries that are close to 10 years old and working fine. They take up to 90A of charging current from my Prosine 2.0 when discharged to 60%. They are definitely not for any member of "Battery Frying Club" but when handled properly they will outlive AGM anytime. For info you can trust go to gel cell manufacturer websites. Not everything newer is better.

RE: How to implement a satellite system?

If you can't figure out how the satellite cabling is done I would call trailer manufacturer or run new cable altogether. Setting everything up for HD only with one receiver only would make everything simpler. You can use your receiver to help you set everything up by going into menu-system setup-installation-point dish(menu-6-1-1). Good luck.

RE: How to implement a satellite system?

The cable for satellite dish would typically not have splitter(s). Satellite cable must pass DC voltage to the dish and adding a splitter is tricky. You might need a SWITCH on the satellite dish if your dish will be receiving both HD programming from satellite 82 and regular programming from satellite 91. To identify both ends of the same cable I use terminal resistor and ohmmeter. The terminal resistor is 75 Ohm and looks like tire valve cap. You can buy it at Home Depot or Lowe. Screw it on one end of the cable and measure resistance on the other end and you should read 75 Ohms. You can also simply make short on one end and read zero Ohms on the other end. If you want to watch different programming on different TVs, you will definitely need a switch on the dish and a separate receiver for each TV.

RE: How to implement a satellite system?

First of all DO NOT CALL ANYONE. You are not suppose to receive Canadian satellite programming south of the border. But it works and I am doing it for years. All Bell HD channels are on satellite 82, all regular and music channels are on satellite 91. To receive both HD and regular channels you will need HD receiver that can receive both and a dish that is aimed at 82 or 91 satellites or a dish that can receive both without changing position. Theoretically any dish will work if you are prepared to re-aim it every time you want to switch from one satellite to other. To receive Bell programing you have to use Bell receiver. If you use Bell HD receiver and Bell dish that can receive both satellites switching from regular to HD program and back will be done automatically when changing channels by remote. You can have dish on tripod or permanently install dish or dome on the roof of the trailer. One word of warning. If your receiver is without signal for certain amount of time(weeks) you will have to re-synchronize it by calling automated Bell help line(call from Canada). It is totally irrelevant how the receiver is connected to the TV; HDMI, composite or component will work. You will have to figure out how to bring the signal from the dish into the receiver. RG6 cable is required because of high frequency of the satellite signal. Just remember that the receiver satellite coax input has 15V/18V DC voltage on it when on.

RE: Atwood 8500-IV furnace problem

You may have a defective motor but that does not cause cycling. The thermostat can not control furnace that does not work properly. If your burner does not work properly the firing/flame sensing electrode will not keep flame going. So I suggest again remove valve assembly and check condition of burner and firing electrode. Replace the electrode with the style that has wire coming out instead of plug-in terminal that has a tendency to corrode & make poor connection. You already have Atwood part number.

RE: Headlights.. Daytime

Disagree 100%. Daylight Running Lights are standard on all vehicles sold in Canada(and many european countries) since 1989. It is an excellent safety feature and burns unmeasurably little fuel. In DRL mode only headlights operate and operate in half brightness to prolong life of bulbs. Aftermarket DRL modules are available to retrofit vehicles that don't have them. I believe most GM vehicles sold in US have DRL as well.

RE: Atwood 8500-IV furnace problem

Did you check burner? You have to remove valve assembly to do that. Four screws. And replace a firing electrode while it is easy. I suspect the burner grid is rusted/gone allowing to burn too much gas triggering the limit switch. The motor starting current is very high and repeated starting might overheat the breaker. Atwood part number for burner:#30268 Atwood part number for firing electrode:#34570 Good luck

RE: Plumbing wrench? Spanner wrench? HELP?

The white nut is a combination sealing ring and nut in one piece. You can also get a separate sealing ring if that is what you have. P-trap

RE: Problems with Boondocker 60 amp converter

I have older version of Truecharge 40+ and fan runs only when needed, not all the time. I am not sure how fan on new version Truecharge 2 works. The "smart charger" can only be as smart as a person who made a firmware for it. I use Xantrex products long enough to know that it neither undercharge nor overcharge batteries and it definitely prolongs the life of batteries. If 5 years is average life of batteries, my Xantrex charger is already paid for just by savings from not having to replace batteries prematurely. Tweaking the 20 turn potentiometer to fine tune charger voltage when charging is not my idea of having fun when camping. And same applies to babysitting the batteries when on charge.

RE: Problems with Boondocker 60 amp converter

This is not about bragging. It is simply about letting people know there is better way to charge batteries and better way to spend money.
