RE: Prescription medications 90 day rule: What to do?

OH and when asked what was in the purple bag on my first crossing I responded drugs. Wrong answer. :( Err sorry sir - prescription medications. :B

RE: Prescription medications 90 day rule: What to do?

And you should consider bringing any drugs back into Canada. We've never had any issue with our US drugs and no clue about any from Mexico.

RE: Prescription medications 90 day rule: What to do?

That was the purple pharmacy in Algodones, we didn't inquire at any others.Walk past the first purple pharmacy, past the liquor entrance and into the second purple pharmacy. Have your list of meds. Order if necessary and find out how long but you are in Yuma so a second trip should be no issue. You can bring back $800 of meds/month. Two of you then $800 each. They split the order into 2 purple bags each with a receipt. Use a CC with no transaction fees. As long as the meds don't excite the doggies you're good to go and the purple folks know all about the doggies.

RE: coleman Mach - Temperature Differential model 8333e856

Have you covered the windows, roof vents, etc to help lower the temperature?

RE: Quartzsite 2018

This week there was flooding in Q on the news. The main attraction for us is the social aspect of the RV club for a week in January. And people watching is always interesting for us. Usually a couple summer overnights - 50A, $29 and Silly Al's to help forget how frigging hot it is. Camping in the summer w/o power??? Really???

RE: Hwy 101 In Oregon

Recommend you start in Astoria. Visit the Maritime Museum, take the water front trolley, walk across the street to the Bow Picker for great fish and chips, Lewis and Clark Fort and the Column. Ft Stevens is a great CG. Each and every one of these is a great experience.

RE: 101 degree heat & 30 amp air-conditioning

My vent cover works great! Raising the solar panels also allows clearance for the Fantastic roof vent. The vent is designed to stop opening when it contacts something like a tree limb and in this case a solar panel while the fan continues to run. A rubber pad is attached to the vent at the contact point with a piece of VHB tape. Open fan vent http://i.imgur.com/lrGO4CY.jpg

RE: Dogbone heat? 50A/30A

Good answer from BB. Check the voltage in the rig with the A/Cs running as that might be a factor especially with 12ga wire. Is the wire itself 6' long?

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2018

This is how our 2013 Alaskan blog ends - about 70 miles/day in the rig. "Well we’re finally home from the Alaskan trip after 4 1/2 months. We drove 9,630 miles with the motorhome and 2,740 miles with the car." We gave our GKs road maps so that they could track us and then asked them various questions as we traveled. Here are two: 1. What are the major rivers that start in Yellowstone and where do they go? 2. Where does the Continental Divide go from the lower 48 states? They and we learned from this experience.

RE: Old Hughes MotoSat equipment

There are some areas of the country where satellite internet is the only choice plus some RVs have one. However this equipment is largely replaced by cell service. I removed the Hughes dish etc that came with my rig. It had no significant value.

RE: 50 AMP to 15 AMP adapter pigtail

I use 20/30 and 30/50 adapters for both 20A and 30A plugs. The PI unit works equally well on all 3 RV power plugs.

RE: 35gal fuel station only takes 26gal

Perhaps the extra space is for air and fuel expansion. Generally you do not want fuel tanks completely filled.

RE: Hand held 120VAC pedestal tester?

I've found that it's unlikely to find a pedestal voltage problem with any of the above suggestions. Adding a load like a ceramic heater and checking the voltage would help. However that also doesn't ensure good voltage later. Nothing beats a full function power protector like the Progressive Industries units. First they won't connect the rig to shore power if there is any problem at that point. Then they continue to monitor and will disconnect as required. Sure it's more $$ than the 3 light tester but a lot less than replacing your rig electronics plus the ruined camping experience. The above suggestions will certainly help find some pedestal issues. The 50/20 or 50/30 plus 30/20 adapters are also a good test even for a 50A rig since it at least tests 3 of the 4 50A wires.

RE: Microwave and converter fried at campground

Correct me if I am wrong, but on a 30 amp circuit, you have a HOT and a NEUTRAL. If the NEUTRAL loses connection (which is what happened to fry his stuff) you have NO CONNECTION. You can only have the 0v and 240v (or low voltage/high voltage) difference if you have both HOTs connected with no NEUTRAL.You can have very high voltage on 30A due to a open neutral. It happened to me and of course the open neutral was in the CG 120/240V distribution. This is I suspect a rare incident but it happened to me. Fortunately I had installed a PI full power protector and it disconnected the rig power and no harm. The voltage was displayed on the remote and I could not pull the plug fast enough. Sorry, not correct. Yes, on 50 amp (two hots) and open neutral can cause very high/very low voltage. But, an open neutral on a 30 amp (single hot) will just cause NO POWER.It is correct and the open neutral is in the 120/240 CG distribution or split phase neutral if you like. I agree that if the hot or neutral is open to a 3 wire circuit there will be no voltage. But what happened to me is the exact same scenario as an open neutral on a 50A pedestal. But I was on 30A and the open neutral was FURTHER UPSTREAM in the CG 120/240V DISTRIBUTION CENTER.

RE: Newb questions

If you have just filled the tank then there could be air in the water from the hose or just due to filling. Once that clears then just enough run time to clear the lines. The hot water could be longer due to the HW tank. Assuming there is no faucet aerator and you continue to have air after a few minutes then that suggests a leak on the water line or pump - ie on the input or vacuum side.

RE: Newb questions

The pump should run as long as you need it w/o any issues. But look up your model specs etc. And this assumes you have good DC voltage say 12.0V+. Some pumps cannot be run dry w/o problems so check the specs.

RE: 50A Transfer Switch Recommendations

Hi CA Traveler, Because the OEM relay had burned contacts within 12 months of my first use. Because the circuit also blew three sixty amp fuses. I replaced the fuse with a 50 amp automatic circuit breaker. It has been fine ever since. I'd upgrade to one that is rated for at least 100 amps. Mine are 200 amps.Why so much higher than 50A?Wow! Pulling over 60A on one of the hot leads and then switching. No wonder they burn up. You make me wonder - You have 60A fuses on a 50A A/C pedestal? Doesn't your 50A rig CB trip? I must be missing something since 50A requires a dual CB so that both hot leads will disconnect when either exceeds 50A. I NEVER switch the AC with high current loads like A/Cs and HW. Mostly all AC sources are off except the refer and charger and since the batteries are generally charged they represent only a few amps. But we all march to our own drummer.

RE: 50A Transfer Switch Recommendations

Yikes - The cheapest solid state one is $212 and then on up. I'll stick with my lowly Blue Seas CB.
