Normal. You know what to do next time. BTW you saved no significant propane.

RE: Alternator output voltage too high, question

My alternator gauge never moves. Until it did two years ago and it was the alternator. Doubt you have a battery issue.

RE: Can we travel with fresh tank full? We lose half on the way.

Find out where the water is going and put a cork in it.

RE: Electrical Diagram help

Breaker box should have instructions maybe even a diagram. Otherwise black goes to the breaker, white to the neutral bus, green or bare grounds to the ground bus. No neutral-ground bond in the RV. Ground also connects to frame along with battery negative. stack of 12v fuses provide the positive for 12v accessories. Typically all negatives come together on a bus with a single connection to the converter negative. Negative bus also connects to frame.

RE: Wiring 2 6 volt batteries

Tnx I ha e it right now. Still nothing. I think it might be the converter or charger The old batteries had no water There was not even a little power with old or new. Batteries. The power panel has a blinking g light green when 110 volts connected 110 volts make everything work including 12 volts The red and Common connections on the PANEL show con ected on the meter No 12 volt even from truck HelpDo you have any meter or test light? What is the combined battery voltage? Any battery switch to turn on? Verify the main 12v fuses are good in the 12v panel.

RE: How do they do it? little vehicle/big trailer

8 mpg and 2,800+ rpm all day. Cruise set 62-65 on the flats and slower up hills. Not really a big deal.

RE: Broke down days from home, what would you do?

I'd drive home, then fly back out to pick up the RV.+1, maybe drive the car back out depending on time and money. I would want to personally pick up the RV to verify repair was made to my satisfaction. BTW it is easy to take six weeks for certain repairs where specific parts from the RV manufacturer are needed. And some shops are just busy. Especially if the shop is good.

RE: Portable Generator for 50 amp service

Two air conditioners? Go with three Honda 2000 :B http://durationpower.com/store/ A single large generator is going to be hard to call portable IMO.

RE: Sloppy Tranny

Left foot was for the clutch, parking brake, and (in the day) high beam switch. :BDon't forget the intermittent wiper and wash pump for the windshield.

RE: Electrical Diagram help

Depends on how you plan to wire what. All the diagrams are good but will depict too much of something and miss other parts. I assume you want to power the whole panel with the inverter. Transfer switch has two inputs. For you, inverter and utility power cord. Output goes to the main breaker panel. You will need the converter connected to a separate breaker to shut it off while inverting. Fridge could go on this breaker also. Connect the inverter 12v, converter output and the chassis isolator to the four AGM and you are in business. Add 120v and 12v connections as needed. I assume you have some experience or you should get help.

RE: A/C tripping the breaker

It stinks because I never had an issue and am the only one having an issue right now. Then they changed the power cables and hookups and I'm having the problem. Wish they left it alone!Very interesting. Yes check voltage and request new work if below 110 in the RV.

RE: Solar ?

How long do the batteries last now? Yes 200 watts is a good start. Small freezer is a moderate but steady load 24 hours a day where solar is just 6 hours per day. Is the RV fridge-freezer too small?
