RE: Refrigerator Safety Device

Dennis, when I was talking to Mac the fire guy about extinguishers, he said he had one of the APRrv controls installed on his refrigerator. From what I had previously read and hearing this from Mac, convinced me this was the way to go. Brian

Refrigerator Safety Device

I just finished the install of my Absorption Refrigeration Protective RV Control. I think this is one of the most important installations I've done to my RV...........especially from a safety stand point. Anyone that is concerned about refrigerator fires should take a look at this device. The installation was NOT difficult....but did take a few hours......I installed the unit with a indicator inside the motor home, so running the wires was the most time consuming. I'm sure the installation where the indicator is in the access compartment for the rear of the refrigerator would be much faster. www.arprv.com is where you can read all about it. Spend a little time looking over the website, it's loaded with information, and I think you'll agree, this is a good device to have. I know I'll sleep better knowing I have an extra bit of safety. Next step is to install a fire extinguisher to cover all bases. By the way, Paul at ARPrv was very helpful, you contact him via email or phone. Brian

Thanks for all the Frig info the last few days.

I just talked to Paul at ARPRV........they make a controller that is much better then the one that comes on the frig....it shuts the frig down when it senses an overheat. I've read nothing but good things about his controller, so I'm ordering one. I also asked him about this company http://www.fixyourfridge.com/ and he spoke highly of them and their product. I've also heard nothing but good about them. So, I'm keeping my Norcold, installing one of the ARPRV controllers, buying a fire extinguisher from Mac the fire guy.....and will live with it. If I ever have problems with the frig, I think I'll just put a new cooling unit from http://www.fixyourfridge.com/. Again, this is a different guy then was is typically refered to as Amish units.......even though he is Amish.......he's suppose to build a superior unit then the Amish or norcold replacement. So, that's what I'm going to do. My unit runs fine and the ice cream is hard LOL. Also, I haven't been able to find a Res frig that will fit.....if it's short enough, then it's to deep, if it's depth is ok, then it's to tall. Also, as you know, I'd have to buy another invertor on and on......so I've made a decision, until I change my mind LOL. Thanks for all the good info. I do appreciate it. Brian

RE: Inverter for Residential Frig ????

How bout if I was to use this model, what would be the answers to questions 1,2 and 3 above. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Whirlpool-14-4-cu-ft-Top-Freezer-Refrigerator-in-White-W4TXNWFWQ/203487910?MERCH=REC-_-PIPHorizontal1-5-_-NA-_-203487910-_-N#specifications Thanks again. Brian

Inverter for Residential Frig ????

First off, I don't know if I have a pure or modified sine wave inverter. Yes, I will find out. However, for now, lets assume I have a modified 2000 watt inverter in my motorhome. 1. If I install a residential frig that needs a pure syn wave, can I install a second invertor that is devoted to just the frig? I ask this, because I'm assuming buying a smaller invertor would be much cheaper then replacing my 2000 watt invertor which runs fine. 2. If you can run a second inverter, can you run it off the same battery bank that runs the 2000 watt existing inverter? I have 4-6 volt batteries. 3. What size invertor would I need to run a residential frig? Thanks Brian

RE: Make/Model Residential Frig to replace 4 door Norcold??

B&B do you have a model for that Frigidaire? Are you running it on a pure or modified sine wave inverter? Thanks for the info. Brian

Zion and Mt Carmel Tunnel?

Just curious, anyone drive their motor home thru this tunnel. You pay a fee and they let oversize (13" max ht) drive thru utilizing single lane traffic.

RE: Make/Model Residential Frig to replace 4 door Norcold??

The most I can get height wise is 65" and that's doing some modification. I can't get anymore then that without moving the heater which is underneath the frig...........shich would be a MAJOR mod, and one I'm not interested in doing. I know I might have to do some trim work, that's not a problem.

Make/Model Residential Frig to replace 4 door Norcold??

I know a lot of people have used the Samsung 197 Residential Frig to replace their 4 door Norcold.........what other makes and models frig work. I don't have enough height room for the 197 I need something that is no taller then 65 inches.....and same depth, similar width as the Norcold which is 24" deep and 32 11/16 wide. Just wondering what others have used. Thanks

What to look for when buying a Residential Frig

I see a lot of people use the Samsung 197 when converting there 4 door Norcold to Residential. Is there a reason for this model? Besides the obvious, like dimensions......what else should one look for when switching......like power draw? will it run on a modified swine wave etc? I don't know if I have a modified or pure sine wave invertor.......does it say on the invertor? Mine came with the motorhome from Fleetwood.........do they typically use pure or modified? Thanks

RE: Residential Refrig install questions?

I'll have to do some measuring. In my 04 Rev, I have a 79" ceiling, so I'm loosing 5" off newer motorhomes. There's a vent underneath the norcold frig, I'll have to take the grill off and see what's in there. I was watching one of the "Gone with the Wynns" videos the other day and they just installed some solar panels that are flexible, 1/8 inch thick, can walk on them, and they stick to the roof.........but what I've been able to find out so far, is they're expensive.

Residential Refrig install questions?

I have a 2004 Fleetwood Revolution 38B, has a 2000 watt invertor, 4 house batteries. I'm considering installing a residential refrig. I know there's no definitive answer because of variables. I don't do a lot of dry camping, and obviously I have a generator that I can run from time to time when I do dry camp. My electrical use I would generally say is on the low side. I usually have the TV going, plus adequate lighting, and maybe a laptop. I have propane for heat, I know there's some power draw for fans etc. I only cook when dry camping with gas, or run the gen for micro. Of course if I have a residential Refrig, that would be drawing AC power also. So here's my questions. Are my 4 batteries plus the 2000 watt invertor, sufficient for what I want to run? Also, thinking of some solar power. What would be a good wattage size to use. Would 100 watts? 200 watts or ? without going over the top money wise. Just looking for something help out the batteries, again, I don't think I use much AC power. Any suggestions on solar panels, where to buy, what kind etc?

RE: New to diesel - airbags and storing RV

Since it is new and you did not get any instructions on what to do I would call Tiffin in Red Bay AL and ask them. I understand that they have great customer service. JMO But then he couldn't brag on his diesel pusher. I don't think he was bragging........he was asking a reasonable question. Like any of us, I'm sure he's very proud of his new motor home, and rightfully so. By they way, I always dump my air when I'm storing my diesel. Brian

RE: Recliner Shopping

Secured for reasons of sudden stops or accidents. That's why I was asking. I have a lazy boy in my motorhome, and it's not secured. I'm looking for ideas, that's why I asked. Thanks Brian

RE: Recliner Shopping

I'm curious what everyone is doing to secure their Lazyboys when travelling.

RE: DP's smells

Shouldn't be any engine odors, if so, needs to be checked and sealed.

Switching from inverter to genertor

Do you turn everything off when switching from the generor to invertor and vice versa? or is it ok to leave everything on? Also, what happens if you're running on the inverter and turn the generator on without turning the inverter off? or running the gen and turn the inverter on? I don't have an auto start gen. Thanks Brian

RE: Class A on Hwy 1 in No. CA

I've never driven it in my motorhome, but I've driven it in my car. There are many parts that are narrow and very windy.............some hairpin turns. If you take it nice and easy, I don't think you'll have any trouble. Yes, there are several nice parks along the way. Check RV Park Review. I'm sure they'll be several others on here that will suggest specific parks. Enjoy! Brian

LED strip light install ?

I'm getting ready to install some LED strip lights. I plan on not using a transformer and just wiring them direct to a 12 volt power source. I'm trying to find a 2 conductor 20 gauge wire to run from the little white box to the 12 volt power source. Any suggestions on what to use and where to buy it? Thanks Brian
