RE: How much weight do you tow? and with how much motor?

Yes it's reasonable. My 34K 36' DP with ISC 330 was close to the performance of my current rig above. Except that the current rig ex brake is a little better even with the additional weight. Both were towing a 3.6K CRV, less than half of your tow.

RE: Live with it or pull new speaker wire.

If he can get through the ceiling then that's a good option otherwise run the wires on the roof. If the grounds are common then he only needs to run 2 wires from the front to back speaker on one side. ie Connect front speaker wire source to rear speaker and rear speaker wire source to front speaker. Otherwise it's 4 wires. No need for any vertical wiring. OP Connect the speakers with some temporary wiring inside the rig to see if this works for you.

RE: Live with it or pull new speaker wire.

Run UV resistant wire on the roof which would be a easy solution.

RE: House GFI trips when I run MH generator

My Onan generators bonded the neutral and ground prior to the ATS. My Magnum inverter/charger bonds the neutral/ground AC output when inverting but not during pass through with it's built in ATS. So all is well.

RE: New to me 93 Monoco Diplomat - 1st Diesel

Also be sure the filter area is clean and you don't contaminate the fuel. My second filter traps 2 micron particles which is extremely small. You don't want contaminates in the fuel pump or injectors. Given what you found I'd check/replace the filters in 3-6 months to help determine if you have a bigger issue with the fuel in the tank.

RE: New to me 93 Monoco Diplomat - 1st Diesel

mr.cc Good advice above. Your post seems to imply one fuel filter. Most rigs have two. Typically the first traps water and larger contaminates. The second one is often mounted right on the engine and may not be obvious. Check for your setup.

RE: House GFI trips when I run MH generator

How many pole is the transfer switch?Does it switch off the nuetral also in other words does it isolate the lines?Bet it doesn't.Not switching the neutral would be a serious safety concern which no RV mfg wants. All ATS units should switch the neutral and hot(s). All grounds in the rig should be bonded, ie no switching.

RE: Transmission changes on the 2015 Honda CRV

This was reported in another thread. I doubt that the RV market is that big when considering many other design concerns. Think mileage, cost, reputation, marketing, etc. Every year the towing guides reflect the options and certainly is more than GM vehicles. And of course there is the modified market with REMCO just waiting for your call.

RE: House GFI trips when I run MH generator

BTW All RVers should plug their rig into a GFI periodically, many CGs have a 20A GFI. Turn all appliances on/off to help verify any potential problem. There are periodic posts with someone getting shocked from their rig frame. So a ground fault and open ground (which can easily occur on any CG pedestal) could be a shocking experience.

RE: House GFI trips when I run MH generator

However, when under generator power, the transfer switch connects the trailer ground and neutral together, just like the main breaker panel in your house. So when the transfer occurs, there is a moment when the house sees ground and neutral shorted before it disconnects the house hot and neutral feeds. Bingo, house GFI trips.Good explanation. But the ATS should be a break before make relay. Both the hot and neutral shore lines should disconnect before the gen hot and neutral connect. Ditto for both hots on 50A. I'm also wondering if you could have some appliance situation causing the problem. Try turning off all CBs in the rig - does the problem still occur? Have you used a household analyzer to verify that all plugs in the rig are wired correctly? While buying my rig the kitchen plugs had an open ground. Turned out that Monaco had not connected the grounds in the slide out junction box, so simple fix. And it's a potential backfeed problem that needs to be resolved.

RE: Another Slide out Question

I've posted this before but everyone should know how to manually operated the slides before they buy the rig. I was confident I knew the procedure on the current rig. Then the hydraulic pump leaked and ruined the motor. Lipper had 3 design problems that prevented the manual procedure from working and when pointed out they sent me a upgraded replacement pump. I'm not sure that it's possible/practical to bring in my heavy slides by disconnecting the hydraulics. And if so what would keep the slides in with no hydraulic pressure? I suppose one could build a stout frame setup inside the rig to block the slide closed.

RE: Another Slide out Question

would it also keep the hank crank from closing the slide if the brake is on??Yes, the purpose of the brake is to keep the slide from moving when it shouldn't. The brake is on the motor which spins rapidly when used. So a small brake has a large stopping ability.

RE: Winegard carry out with HR44-500

Travelers should also be aware that DTV transmits locals in some areas in HD only, no SD. We wanted to watch the Olympics in central OR and DTV finally admitted we would need HD. That was the tripping point to replace the SD only in motion dish on the rig. Never did understand why the prior owner had a SD dish and HD TV. There are reports on these boards of two other similar areas with HD locals only.

RE: Winegard carry out with HR44-500

Or maybe the Carryout just isn't what I need?I have the RF Mogul SWM dish in the RV. Just push a button and it deploys and locks on to the birds. Do you want or have HD TV in the rig or planning for a upgrade? I like being able to record 5 shows and it's a nice backup if we park in the trees. I've thought about carrying a SWM portable but it's bulky, etc, maybe someday. The full array dish has another benefit - range. I get the San Francisco HD locals in Brookings, OR at 300 miles. And I get the San Francisco SD locals in Long Beach, WA at 600 miles. I suspect the carryout has less range but that may not be important.

RE: Winegard carry out with HR44-500

Here's my HR44 list and most of these items don't change when I remove the receiver. But I keep the list handy and it was a carry over from the more involved HR24 move. Home and MH – SWM Dish and HD Channels 1. Turn on receiver wait for setup to complete (about 2.5 minutes). 2. Menu-Settings & Help-Settings-Display-TV Ratio: Widescreen 16:9 3. Menu-Settings & Help-Settings- Display -TV Resolutions: Check all resolutions for Home a. Use 720 for MH TV, however the resolution is automatically detected with the HDMI interface. 4. Menu-Settings & Help-Settings- Display – Video: Off, Pillar Box, Dark Gray – Native On increases channel change time 5. Menu-Settings & Help-Settings-Display-Preferences-Guide HD Channels: Hide SD duplicates. 6. Menu-Settings & Help-Settings -Satellite-View Signal Strength: 96% on all 5 tuners 7. Menu-Settings & Help-Settings -Satellite-Repeat Satellite Setup: Dish setup: Option 17 – Slimline 3S (SWM): Switch Type: 01: SWM (cannot change).

Always good input from Bill.

RE: Winegard carry out with HR44-500

BTW I used the HR24 with IR and RF remotes, with a Slimline 5 HD Dish, a SWM HD dish and a dual LNB round 18" SD dish.
CA Traveler 09/20/14 05:00pm Technology Corner
RE: Winegard carry out with HR44-500

The HR24 can use either a 2 channel multiswitch or SWM dish. Check for use with the Carryout. At home you'll have 5+2 channel recording with the 2 receivers, SWM and operates similar to the mini Genie. In the RV configure the HR24 for the multiswitch. Plus buy a RF remote for the HR24 and you can install the HR24 in a RV closet if you like. I had these 2 receivers for several months while verifying the HR44 operation as it had significant problems before the 1/14 update. Now I only use the HR44 with the RF Mogul dish in the RV. The house TV is 1080 and RV 720. The HR44 detects this via HDMI and automatically configures for the TV. I have a detailed conversion sheet for moving the HR44 and may still have the HR24 (more involved) conversion sheet. Let me know if you want to see it.

And it's most likely filters as in two. I carry 2 sets and so far haven't had to change them on the road.
