RE: Just Testing Picture Insertion.

DrBaker, Imgur is not as easy to use as it once was. The URL you need for the picture is https://i.imgur.com/Qx0601p.jpg which I obtained by right clicking on he picture and copying the link. The link you used was to the page that contains the picture. (You could provide the link to the page using the Link tool. https://www.rv.net/SharedContent/cfb/images/editortoolbar/link.gif) The easiest way to use Imgur for posting pictures on the forum is to use 1492's app https://i.imgur.com/Qx0601p.jpg width=640 BTW, when using the size parameters, it is best to use only one and leave the other blank. Here, I used 640 for width and left the height parameter blank. Tom

RE: GOING TO CANADA PEI, NB, NS

We plan to visit the Canadian Maritimes beginning mid August to maybe mid September. We will be camping in a 38 ft class A motorhome. Our questions are: How full would you expect the provincial and national campgrounds to be at that time? How difficult will it be to find a campsite--government or private during this time? We normally don't make advance reservations: will this be a problem ? How cold and rainy would you expect the weather to be ? Thank you for any input. There are two ways on and off of PEI - The Confederation Bridge between New Brunswick and PEI and the ferry between Nova Scotia and PEI. The Ferry is much more expensive than the bridge. Since one only pays to leave PEI, we go to NS first. When we are ready to go to PEI, we take the ferry. When we leave we take the bridge. For our right and toad, leaving on the ferry would be $54 more expensive than leaving on the bridge. Tom

RE: Banff Alb campgrounds

In Banff, Tunnel Mountain Trailer Court has full hook-ups. Tunnel Mountain Village II has electric only. (I believe there are a few full hook-ups in Village II, but not many.l Tunnel Mountain Village I has no serviced sites. Have a great trip. Tom

RE: ems

YOUR system is a PCI brand system and will show amp draw on EACH leg with a total. But. the OP has a 30 amp RV and is 13 years old and PCI was not in business back then and the OP should have the Intellitec EMS system(Winne used that back then as well as 90% of OEM's). The Intellitec does NOT show amp use if on 30 amp service(30 amp system) or 50 amp if it is a 50 amp RV and is on 50 amps. You do have multiple sensors(2). The amp draw is taken from the current running thru the EACH 120 hot leg. There is a "donut" that the RED and Black lead runs thru and the PCI senses the current thru those 2 donuts. Intellitec systems read the current thru just the single NEUTRAL lead thru the same type donut. The advantage of the PCI system over the Intellitec is simple. Intellitec EMS system IF it fails or malfunctions, NONE of the appliances connected thru the EMS system will have 120 to them. PCI designed their system, if it fails, then the relays stay CLOSED and you have 120 power to all appliances on the EMS system. Doug You certainly know more about ems than I do. I'm only trying to counter the blanket statement, "If you have a 50 Amp MH, plugged into 50 Amp service the EMS will not show anything," which is not always true. Although in another thread, you imply that you agree with the blanket statement, now, it seems, you are agreeing with me. Tom

RE: ems

... If you have a 50 Amp MH, plugged into 50 Amp service the EMS will not show anything. Not needed. .... This statement is not always true. These pictures were taken a 3 days ago, when the OP made his original post about this issue. http://i.imgur.com/bTWG77Pl.jpg http://i.imgur.com/pOBQhX6l.jpg Both AC were running, when the pictures were taken. Per wa8xym's post, perhaps my ems has multiple sensors. Tom

RE: ems

If you are on 50 amp or generator it probably will not show amp usage Is this generally true? On all three of the 50-amp coaches we have owned, the ems gave the amp draw on both lines when hooked to 50-amp shore line or running the generator. I don't think it is important on 50-amp shore line, but since our 8000 watt generator has doesn't provide as much power as the shore line, it would seem to be important for the ems to indicate current use, while the generator is running. As far as the original posters concern, more information is needed. Tom Yes, it is true. On TRUE 50 amp service(100 amps total) there is no need to display amp draw on the panel. On GENSET, you will have amp draw listed as the Genset cannot supply the full 100 amps required. Only 10k and 12.5 k gensets can and IF you have a 10k or 12.5k genset the amp draw meter will then be blank. IF you plug into 50 amp service, and it SHOWS 50 amp service, then the display will be blank. You can plug into cheated 50 amp service but it will show 30 amps on the display instead of 50. You 8k genset is rated about 72 to 74 amps. Doug Are you saying that it is always true and my rig is not on true 50 amp service? I took these pictures a few minutes ago. http://i.imgur.com/bTWG77Pl.jpg http://i.imgur.com/pOBQhX6l.jpg Both AC were running, when the pictures were taken. I only have 3 data points, but as I stated in my original post, on all three of my coaches with 50 amp service, the ems displays the amp draw. Perhaps it is because the same screen shows the line voltage. BTW, a 10Kw generators can't provide 100 amp service, they are rated at 83.3 amps. Tom

RE: Hwy 2 from west Glacier to St. Mary koa campground

Pulling 5th wheel from Oregon and headed to St. Mary KOA campground. Would going to West Glacier and taking Hwy 2 to Browning be a good route pulling camper? When you get to the intersection of US 2 and US 89 in Browning, turn right, away from St Mary. Travel east on US 2 until you reach Montana 464, 5th intersection, I think. Go north on MT 464 to intersection with US 89 north of St Mary. Turn left to get to St Mary. This route is somewhat longer, but a much easier drive. Tom

RE: can not post

new to site I can.t post rv pic my rig eather New members are not permitted to include photos until they achieve a certain number of forum posts. I don't object to this rule but do wonder when it went in to effect. What is the "certain number?" Shouldn't this be emphasized in the picture posting tutorials? Tom

RE: Coach-net vs. Good Sam roadside

It's getting close to renewal time for my Coach-net policy and I'm wondering if I should switch to Good Sam. I have seen several older posts that helped steer me to Coach-net...just wondering what the current feelings were regarding both brands of roadside assistance policies. Thanks, Larry What has been your experience with Coach-net? Have they given you a reason to consider another service? I can't compare Coach-net and Good Sam because we have only had Coach-net. They have provided us with good, friendly service for 16 years and have been our only road service. I do have an interesting (to me) observation. For our first two RV's, which we owned for a total of 12 years, we didn't have a road service and we never needed one. In 2001, we purchased a Winnebago Adventurer and a one-year subscription to Coach-net was included. Since then, we have had many reasons to use a road service. Tom

RE: Help with new Motorhome

My rv has a whole house battery disconnect right by the entrance door close to the floor, the radio works off engine battery when the engine is running and has a isolator so when the engine is off it uses the house battery. My first thought is to check fuses, and circuit breakers. My first thought is to check the battery disconnect. Tom

RE: can not post

It would be more helpful if you described what happens when you try to post. That said, if you are using the RV.Net portal, the problem could be some of the characters you are using in the post. For example, the RV.Net portal chokes of the percent symbol. The easiest work around is to use one of the other portals. see this post for links to other portals Note: The forums name is "Open Roads Forum". There are several ways (call portals) to enter the forum. The same username and password works on all portal. Many member s are using the TrailerLife portal Tom

RE: Water pump not pumping.

It may help to know what rig you have. Regardless, I'll mention this because it solved the same problem for a neighboring camper a couple of years ago. We were drying camping at an agility trial. The neighbor's pump would run (continuously) but no water flow from faucets. Before coming to the trial site, he had filled his fresh water tank. And that was the source of the problem. His fresh water tank was filled by turning a value and using the city water connector. He had failed to turn the valve back to normal. Tom

I second the Carolina Crossroads suggestion. That would be my choice. If you insist on a non-campground location, about an hour further south, at exit 106, there is a Flying J. Tom

RE: searching archives - missing years

Once upon a time, (prior to February 2003) the search engine was a full-text search. If you entered a search key that was in a post, the search engine would find it. A key word was required, so to find post by a specific member, you had to enter something that was in the post. (There was no View Posts link to find all of their posts.) But one could enter a space character as the search word, the authors username in the Arthur field: and you could find all of their posts that contained a space. It was also a substring search. That is, a search for "sea" would find "sea" but it should also find any word, such as, "search" or "season" that contain the letters"sea", anywhere in the word. There was only one database, but one could specify a search period. But it always was from the current day and went backward in time, one week, one month, etc. up to one year. Finally there was a search all posts, no matter how recent or old. Those who understand how such searches would be done will realize how time intensive the searches would be as the database grew to millions of posts. One could wait minutes for a search result. In February 2003, the search engine was changed to an indexed search - still one database. Thus, the full text search went by the wayside. One couldn't search for just any word in a post - only "significant" words could be used. Fortunately, a message author search no longer required text in the search words field. The time indexing posts had detrimental effect on the responsiveness of the forum. Indexing was changed to late at night. The downside of that was one couldn't search for posts made in the current day. As the number of posts increased, seemingly exponentially, even the indexed search became agonizingly slow. In May of 2004, the database was split. One no longer could search all posts - searches had to be split into searches less than a year old or searches more than a year old. (Note: that is what I mean by separate databases. I don't know if they the current posts and the older posts are physically separated, but the searching of them is separated.) There were lots of headaches with that search engine and the forum software, in general. In late 2004 and early 2005, there was a total rewrite of the software, with the current search engine going live in 2005. The search engine was slick. I say "was" because in April, 2013 it lost its most powerful feature - Search within results was a true full text search. The original search was indexed, but the results could be searched again. Search within results is still an option, but it is not a full text search and is no different than changing the Keyword match field to "Find posts with all of the words in any order." I don't know for a fact, but I surmise that the full text searches were using to much of the system resources. At least I like to think there was some good reason - we were never told why. Well that's more of the history than you probably want to know and Sarah is calling me to dinner. Tom

RE: Social Security Question

Assuming you have applied in a "timely" fashion, the first check comes in the month after THE birthday. It will come, or be deposited, on the first, second, or third Wednesday of the month, depending on which third of the month the birthday is in. You may apply up to 4 months before THE birthday. It can take up to three months to process. Tom
