RE: Oxygen Refills While On The Road

Good to know about the national providers. Does either Apria or Lincare provide service in Canada as we like to travel there?

RE: Oxygen Refills While On The Road

Our experience has been that it's difficult to get any oxygen equipment and oxygen while traveling because they want prescriptions and then you are in a different state. However will follow along to see possible solutions. Our solution is to travel with the larger 120 concentrator and the 12V portable with battery. We can run either while driving.

RE: Still broken

I certainly didn't realize your multiple problems/threads. Get good knowledgeable help and I gave you a source to get techs that know Monaco coaches. And that may not be Alliance BTW.

RE: Still broken

On some Monaco rigs the alternator wiring is unique and replacing the alternator with something else means it will never charge right. Unfortunately you are beyond that possibility. Did any tech ever use a clamp on ammeter on the chassis battery to determine the drain? That is very basic. My advice is for you to join the Monacoers Yahoo Group for help. Folks there have vast experience. PLUS they can tell you where to go for service in FL with techs that can understand and solve your problems. Even if it starts on Monday this is still a very knowledgeable group.

RE: GPS for RVs

Never trust a GPS. Plan your route with google maps and verify the roadways with a trucker atlas either in print or online. If there is an accident I'll verify the new route BEFORE taking it and not going to trust some random GPS that hasn't been updated in years with my roof. This would lead one to ask: Why aren't you updating your GPS maps?Some answers: Last time I checked the maps are 2+ years old when downloaded. But regardless never trust them. And it's one very large file like several GBs. Not a issue with high speed bandwidth which I don't have. Garmin should split it up into multiple files with the ability to start/stop downloads as the USER needs. And the map delay makes we wonder about how often other data like CGs, stores etc are updated. I prefer looking up CGs etc on the phone for one simple reason: When they update their database I get the updated information immediately and not later when I download GBs of data.

RE: Solar Output in Shade?

While the switch gives you options there is no need for anything other than a on/off for the controller input, assuming the panels are the same voltage (or close). Just plug in the portables when desired. Use heavy wire for long runs. No need for a second CC as long as one is adequate for all of the panels.

RE: $50 Christmas Gift

I thought PBS had grants and public support. Not sure about government support. Our DTV PBS is "free" given that we pay for DTV. I'm not aware of any pay for view DTV for PBS. I'm also not aware of any way to charge for OTA programming. Copilot, Is this a cable charge?

RE: Best Toad Braking System

I have the Invisibrake and it as been flawless. No setup, absolutely nothing. I do have a light on the MH dash so I know when the toad brakes are activated. Have you read the manual and called RM? However there are what appear to be very creditable concerns about this system in this long thread.

RE: Olympia Wa. to Phoenix Az. In Dec.

There are mountain passes is S CA, both 58 and 5. Many years ago both were closed for us. Just a heads up.

RE: $50 Christmas Gift

Let me see if I understand this: I can give them a gift that they pretend to like and the receipt so they can go stand in the return line. -or- I can give them a gift card and they are happy and they can get what they want. Isn't that the American way?

RE: Changed hot water heater, now, no hot water.

Are all shower valves turned off as they can cause your problem. Next cap the bypass line and make sure water is flowing through the tank. Why do you have only one bypass valve and is it really a bypass valve? I would expect 2 valves so that you can bypass the tank and drain it for the winter.

RE: $50 Christmas Gift

Many different gift cards from Krogers. Our local Frys (one of many Kroger stores) has 4x fuel points this week. I get the fuel points and the GCs, etc get the card.

RE: GPS for RVs

Our Garmin 2699 with 6" screen and bean bag is more than adequate for MH and car.

RE: Direct TV portable satellite

Found this on Sat Guys. 2012 post, hopefully accurate. The 101 sat is Standard Def channels, this will be all your core Directv channels. 110 does not carry programming. 119 is spanish and some local markets in SD, and some public interest channels. 99 and 103 are all core HD channels and local HD channels. And a few SD channels such as BabyFirst TV, NASA, Golden Eagle, and Free Speech TV.

RE: Direct TV portable satellite

110/119 are DTV birds. There may be content some would want like foreign shows. I recall a friend subscribing to Brazil stations for his wife and perhaps it was one of those birds.

RE: Why a GFI HERE ?

It simply detects the difference between neutral and hot to trip. It can't detect a neutral to ground fault. So designed to provide protection for a 2 wire setup. Probably your gen sine wave is marginal in some aspect from it's detection causing it to trip.

RE: LED for 1383 Bulb

Thanks for the input. I was focused on the light shining down but will buy a few of the above to find the "best" for us and then order more. Thanks again

RE: Members solar builds?

I prefer to flat mount these panels, when mounted. Can I SAFELY use these 4 pv panels with the 60a MPPT CC? I am NOT sure how to connect these panels, meaning series, parallel or a combo of series/parallel etc, and I do not want to destroy the cc etc. Series will exceed the 150V and that is a hard limit to avoid CC damage. So series is out. Connect them either in parallel or series parallel (2x2). You can however exceed the 800W limit without concern. The CC will derate to 60A should that be necessary. But that is difficult to do with your 4 panels and virtually impossible with flat mounted panels. And you will only get to or close to 60A at high noon and a clear sky. This is documented by MS.

RE: LED for 1383 Bulb

The 1383 is 2.5" long, 1.5" diameter, located in my ceiling and shine down only, no light out to the sides. So far I haven't found any 1156 variant that is close other than the pricey 1383 LED replacements.
