RE: Valterra Bladex 3" waste valve

Surprised there's no diagram on the back of the package it came in. Those seals are a b-itch and may take time to get them seated. If they aren't seated properly, it will leak.

RE: Death by GPS

dotted lines over water usually mean there's a ferry or water taxi service.Heavy on the usually. Not on this body of water.

RE: Death by GPS

I think it's happened to all of us at one time or another. Roads that really aren't roads except for hikers and mules. The latest crazy thing my RV760 did was show a dotted line over a lake to get to the other side. What does that mean, drive real fast as skip over the water?

RE: Things I don't understand

I was sitting here having my coffee and surfing, when I heard strange noises, like thumping and snapping. I look out to see a guy in a TC has just backed in to a site under a large olive tree with very low hanging branches, breaking them as he backs in. That's pretty hard to understand.

RE: windows open in the wind?

Is this question for real?Probably. I remember a fellow years ago saying he didn't like wearing a seat belt and that he could simply open the door and jump out before he got into a crash.

RE: Things I don't understand

That is easy to answer. Occasionally when the OP doesn't get the response they want, they will either delete or edit the OP. If the OP has been quoted in its entirety the deletion doesn't matter.How do you know this?Because it's happened many times.No, I mean how do you know that a first poster who quotes the entire OP is doing it for this reason?

RE: windows open in the wind?

higher wind conditions, is it best to open the windows on the rig so the winds can pass through, or leave them closed? Closed. Open won't make a hoot of difference. Slowing down or stopping will.

RE: How to test the trailer brakes without a TV?

Google up a wiring diagram for a 7 pin connector. Apply 12v to the proper pins.

RE: What to look for in an inverter/charger?

Air conditioning draws over 200 amps, still no heating of cables or connectors.I used to try to run air @12v with 6 batteries/inverter. Everything was ok for maybe 1/2 hour, after that, things started heating up. Even at 48v, I got some soldering iron heating on one crimped connection (the + at the buss). Wire too small. Replaced with bigger. NO more heating.

RE: Do I need solar or more batteries and a better charger?

Solar isn't something that's really "needed" if you have generators. It's just very nice to not have to lug a generator, get gas, pour gas (spilling) and listen to it. For faster charging consider AGMs.

I do not understand why the first responder in a post quotes the entire OP.

RE: What to look for in an inverter/charger?

As said, get a PSW. Newer technology is going to present problems with MSW. Outback is top of the line, GoPower and Samlex are pretty good too. To power the entire coach with my Prosine I intercepted the shore power's connection to the panel feed line at a jct box just inside the basement where the shore power arrived, and spliced the inverter 120v input to the shore cord, then the inverter's 120vac output splices into the panel feed line. That worked wonderfully for 10 years. If you have enough battery (4 at least) to run a coffee maker you should be able to handle the MW. I did my own install.
