RE: Gray/Black sensor problems

After reading posts about this for years, I've concluded that almost nobody has working sensors.

RE: IRS calling

I don't understand how anyone falls for these scams. I've never given the IRS my phone number, so how could they call? -MichaelPanic. When someone says you're going to be arrested, that can fool the best of us. That's a crime.. assault.

RE: Yamaha ef2000is Twin Tech cables overloading gennies

Connect the gennies, then start the generators one at a time. .Your owner's manual probably says this. plugged in the Twin Tech cable and then started each generator. Oops. Overload on one gennie.Does this mean you DID connect them both first?

RE: What do you do about dirty clothes?

To tide me over ....good one... so partly dry clothes (not dripping) can hang over the bed and other open areas in the rv.I rarely use the dryer. I prefer the front-loader washers (if I can find them) because they spin clothes much drier than the old agitator top loaders. And I don't have to worry about an off-balance spin stop either.

RE: Sewer Tank Flusher

add? Advise I think. I don't like people using short cuts for spelling. Write in it out!! Advice. Spelling helps too.

RE: Keeping 5th wheel cool while traveling with dogs

Running a generator while travelling is not unheard of. INCLUDING a generator in the bed of the TV.

RE: New (last year) propane regulator isn't working.

Close both tank valves. Then, very, very slowly open the one that's feeding the regulator. See if that works. 20 demerits for senior posting in FTS.

RE: What do you do about dirty clothes?

Stopped washers and dryers full of clothes are not well tolerated by campers who are waiting for an available machine..I know that, so I'm very careful about timing my arrival 1-3 minutes before the machine stops. The newer machines all have minutes displays on them. I remember a time when the room was busy and the only available machine stopped. I was patient for about 5 minutes before I unloaded it and started my wash. Lady arrived a few minutes later and got pretty upset with me. Perhaps I should have put them in the dryer for her. EDIT: I also think that 'some' older women have a hard time understanding what a MAN is doing in laundromat in the first place!! :)

RE: IRS calling

I would love to talk to them, but all the IRS call I get are recorded calls and to talk to them I have to call back to a number with an area code I don't recognize. I am afraid of placing a call to an area code out of country. I have heard that this will add large amounts to your phone bill.??haha

RE: Inverter installation

2 inverters, 500 watt pure sine, 1500 watt modified. install 1500 watt and run 2 outlets up to kitchen for microwave and coffee pot kettle etc. the reason: given the amount of waste energy through inversion, I figured that a 500 would be good enough for an LED TV and what ever, for about 2 hours max.... the 1500 would only be powered up if I wanted to make coffee or run the nuke or fill the air bed for 2 minutes... is 2 t105's enough ? another question, has anyone wired up a switch or relay to swap the 110v from shore to inverter ? or is plugging in the norm ? Your wiring plan is questionable. What do you mean by 'run 2 outlets'? Some folks like me, find it much easier to supply the coach's breaker panel directly. That way there's no messy wiring to be done. As I'm sure you've read on this board, MWs don't do too well with MSW. I think you're going to struggle with just 2 batts for any heavy loads like the MW. Transfer switches are common. I'd get a big PSW and be done with it. 'Waste energy thru inversion' is a common gripe, but your approach seems to be a lot of work and expensive, relative to installing two more batteries, which you're going to need anyway.

RE: Dometic RM2652

RE: What do you do about dirty clothes?

.. campground laundry room. She says its a great place to visit with others ...It is, but it's one thing I won't do: sit and wait for my clothes - as if someone wanted to steal my clothes.

RE: Leaving camper unoccupied - help

If the world were all meant to be the same, we'd all live in glass houses. Sorry, I just don't see the logic.The logic is that if I show up at a campground on a Tuesday and all the good spaces are taken by rigs whose owners aren't there because they're "saving the space" for the weekend, that just pisses me off. Logically, if that is allowed, I can't really do much about it. But I can still be upset and wish it wasn't allowed. I doubt you'd be really happy about it yourself. But I guess it depends on what annoys you and what doesn't. I'd have to agree on that point that we are not all the same, which is why you don't see a problem.
