RE: Battery Disconnect positive or negative side?

Yes. It may be wired as intended by the mfg. It's common for the salesman switch to not disconnect everything. And my manual disconnect switches also don't disconnect everything on either battery bank. I did install a disconnect switch on the house battery negative terminal and will probably do the same on the chassis batteries.

RE: Where the heck is the fuel gauge calibration screw???????

BTW Each diesel engine with have 2 hoses to the tank top, perhaps near the sending unit.

RE: Where the heck is the fuel gauge calibration screw???????

A common Monaco setup has the Centroid sending unit outside the rails on one side, look for wires on the top of the tank. There are 2 adjusting screws and instructions on their website.

RE: Newbie question about plugging in at the house

One heavy draw item at a time should be OK. BUT Few homes actually have 20A plugs. Most likely they have a 20A circuit with multiple 15A plugs on that circuit. That means you have to share the power with whatever else is running in the house. That might be very little or it might be a significant draw. So talk to the owner and see if you can identify a lightly loaded circuit to use and don't be surprised if you just get a blank stare. Plus the length and size on your extension cord is a factor. The shorter and bigger the less voltage drop. Therefore buy a 10 ga 50' extension cord for under $100. Price is not a factor as you don't have CG fees.

RE: A/C on generator question

Coach lights and monitor panel are 12V and run off of the battery and AC should not be a factor. Lack of 12V needs to be fixed first.

RE: A/C on generator question

Running 2 A/Cs on 30A is marginal unless they are smaller A/Cs. Typically this is where the 5500 shines as it should have one A/C on 30A and the second A/C on the 20A CB. Check to see it there are any other loads on the 20A CB. There are a variety of reasons for the tripping CB. Dirt on areas inside and outside, weak CB, hard start capacitor failed or not installed, A/C problems and gen problems. Rigs with this gen can be set up to run only one A/C at a time when on 30A shore power, ie they may automatically switch A/Cs but only one will run at a time.

RE: Winegard Movin View:

Then if your dish works all you have to do is configure the receiver. Let us know.

RE: Lippert - You can do better than this.

I'm guessing your 2014 rig is out of warranty so a low cost win for Lipper?

RE: Pedestals open grounds.

You could also have a open ground on a rig circuit. One of mine was never connected and never checked by the prior owner.

RE: Roof top A/C not cooling properly

Nowhere did any line exhibit the typical sign of leakage... Dirty or oily residue.... To bad he didn't insert some dye as a future leak would then be very easy to detect.

RE: AT&T cellphone coverage In Nova Scotia and currency question

I just spoke with the AT&T folks and they confirmed no coverage up there. They said that since our phones were "off contract" we could go online and get them unlocked, then try to find SIM cards that work in Canada. Yeah, right. That settles it. I'm NOT going to drive the rig to some place where I have no cell phone communication, and no web access other than depending on some business we might be able to limp to should we have an issue with the rig. I belong to all of the road services, and have spent a bazllion bucks getting and keeping the rig in top shape, but you just never know. All it takes is one stray moose to derail the best-maintained RV. As an aircraft pilot, former skydiver, and amateur racer of just about everything with a motor, I am NOT naturally risk averse, But, I also am not a big fan of being at the mercy of the Canadian equivalent of the "Good Ol' Boys Saloon and RV Repair" in Whatchamacallit, Nova Scotia. As a young guy, traveling by myself in a car or on a motorcycle, armed with just a map (no GPS), I went everywhere. Driving the RV with my wife onboard is a different matter. So, I guess spending July in Maine will have to do for our northeastern experience. Nova Scotia will just be viewed through the eyes of those who have been there before. BobWith that attitude you've made an excellent choice for the Canadians.

RE: AT&T cellphone coverage In Nova Scotia and currency question

Use a credit card with no transaction fees and you won't need much cash. One of ours also has 5% cash back on fuel including Canada. The exchange rate is always current. For $15/month extra with Verizon we get Canadian phone coverage activated only while in Canada. Data is expensive so we just used WiFi when available.

RE: Winegard Movin View:

Bill, Can't the receiver be set to use just one non SWM coax? If not he can still try just the one to confirm the dome is working with a error message on the second tuner before going forward. OP, When I was moving the HR24 there were about 6 setup items to check including dish type, TV type and IR vs RF remote.

RE: Pedestals open grounds.

Maybe your 30/20 adapter is bad. Or are you using a 50/20 adapter? It's a 30/15 adapter, but it's not the adapter that's the problem. Still says open ground if I plug it into the 15 amp recept. on the side of our TT.In that case see if a neighbor has a tester to compare.

RE: Converter Amps

What's important is battery type, battery capacity, charger quality, DC loads, DC wiring and how you camp. Your new charger may charge faster and better or NOT. You may need it to charge faster and better or NOT. etc. Post information on the above to get help. It has nothing to do with 20/30/50A service.

RE: bayite DC 5-120V 100A DC Current Meter with Transformer

The wire has to be disconnected anyway to go through the coil. Run a second parallel wire with 10 loops and a switch for 1X or 10X reading.

RE: Using Directv HDDVR versus HD

Consider equipment changes like all SWM. Or leave the Genie at home and use a receiver like the HR24 2 channel DVR with your current dish in the MH. You will also need a multiswitch - 4 cables in and 2 out to the HR24. You should be able to do a receiver upgrade while on the road. The HR24 can also use SWM so you could use it at home or when/if you have SWM for the rig. Many options but the HR24 solves the summer recording one.

RE: Using Directv HDDVR versus HD

Is the MH receiver SWM capable? If so you'll also need the power inserter and SWM splitter. Otherwise maybe a Genie Client. You cannot have any standard TV splitters on the coax and it sounds like that is your setup. We move our HR44 receiver between home and RV so all recorded shows go with us. You might consider S&B upgrade to SWM dish and do the same. The advantage is 5 channel recording so never any channel conflicts and lots of options when parked in the trees. With a one night stop you might want to just watch recorded shows or OTA rather than setup the dish.
CA Traveler 05/25/16 09:56am Technology Corner

Does anyone have a wiring diagram for a 50 amp hookup? I understand rvs only have 110 volts going to them.A 50A plug is 120/240V and you have that all the way to the dual CB in the panel. Most RVs use just the 120V capability but 240V is available.
