RE: INSURANCE HELP

I just bought a 1997 ford e350 rv that was converted by the company "born free". Tried to insure it with gieco today and they said the VIN is not listed as an automobile or an rv. The title says 1997 make: born free Series: MHC and Model BF20SPT. Which is 20 foot sports van. They sent me to the rv underwriter or some nonsense and they said because it doesn't have a full kitchen they can't insure it. I didn't think I would have a problem insuring my simple new van. It's basically a ford van w a little luxury on the back. Can you guys steer me to a good place to insure it? help lol This is the **** that made me dump Geico.

RE: Washing your hands

Yes, I've been turning wrenches for a long time too. Used to use the orange stuff, but switched to Dawn years ago and haven't looked back.

RE: RV Outlet NEC Code Question

Need to pull new wire. Codes requires 2 hots, a neutral, and a ground from the main panel. Unless I'm interpreting this incorrectly it sounds like it's saying that 120 volt sub panels are not allowed. I don't think that's the case. I was referring to is panels that are designed for 240v.

RE: RV Outlet NEC Code Question

Need to pull new wire. Codes requires 2 hots, a neutral, and a ground from the main panel. You can use 10ga for ground, but will need 6ga minimum for the hots and neutral and a 60A breaker. The reason being, if you kept the 10ga wire, there is a possibility for an overload if using more than one of the receptacles. Not to mention that those boxes are wired for 2 buses with 2 120 lines. I did this same upgrade a couple years ago and have not regretted it. Having a port available for my welder has been nice too. If you don't want to do all this, can you use an exterior receptacle on your RV as your "convenience" receptacle? The 30a breaker in the mail panel already protects the #10 wiring going to the outlet....I have no need for 60a worth of power or to run my welder out there.... I did similar to what you are describing when I put the 100a sub panel in the new detached garage, but that's not what we're talking about here. Yes, the main breaker protects the wire. If you look at the new panel though, it'll have the two circuits on different buses. Sure, you can jumper them, but like you said, you can't use both if your AC is on. Why not just use the exterior 20A receptacle on your RV for your "convenience receptacle"?

RE: RV Outlet NEC Code Question

All I can tell you that new installs require a means of disconnecting the power at the box if it is more than a certain distance from the meter. I Believe 50 feet but my memory is not as good as it used to be. True to an extent. There is a "6 disconnect" rule that states that if there are 6 or fewer breakers, a main disconnect is not required.

RE: BEWARE Sportys To Go Tire/Auto Service I-15 Beaver UT

Perfect reason to educate yourself. Learn tire wear patterns and what defects to look for.

RE: Propane Safety

So, is there a safe method of fetching a 5-gallon propane container in my SUV? Sure, just be smart about it. Close the valve and don't let it move around too much. How many gallons of gasoline do you drive around in your car with? Probably more than 5.

RE: Oregon ocean view RV spots

In some areas, you can camp on the actual beach. My favorite is Cape Lookout SP, but it's also one of the most popular parks too.

RE: Sturgis to Yellowstone

None of the interstates go directly to Yellowstone. There are many different routes you can take. I90 to US14 is probably easiest from your direction.

RE: AC panel Meter with 100 amp current transformer

I just installed my EMS-HW30C and it's been awesome. I love how I can see all the parameters on the remote display.

RE: Watch out ---------

Sure doesn't look like it's 10'6". Guess that was what driver thought also......:S If you look at the lane to the right, it appears that the guy standing there could lie down across the lane with little room to spare. Wonder what math they used to come up with 10' 6" width.

RE: Registration question

If the TC doesn't need to be registered, then it would be considered "cargo". Depends on what your local laws are.

RE: 2002 Exiss horse trailer wiring connector

You'll have to trace which wire does what. Apply +12 to the yellow, red, green, brown, and purple; one at a time and see which lights come on.

RE: Liberty Bell Visit-Philadephia

What are the better RV parks to stay at, and how is the best way to get to Constitution Hall? Do you drive in, take a train, take a bus? And, what areas are best to avoid? Thanking you in advance! Be prepared. The drivers there are worse than NY, Chicago, and DC.
