RE: fire ban

We'll be in Ft Stevens, OR tomorrow and will get a update from the rangers.

RE: Generator slide out not sliding out

Wait, a genset, something that's opened maybe twice a year, is on a hydraulic slide all it's own? I've never seen, actually never heard of that. They're all manual pull out afaik. So...following this thread. Might be time to learn something new.It's not uncommon for the larger gens that are located in the front cap and come out forward. And there is a lot of other equipment up there that requires the gen to be out to access.

Go to the Monacoers Yahoo Group website where there is a tremendous amount of Monaco related knowledge.

RE: Summers And Boiling Hot Galley Cooking

Mex, Get the high priced fly swatter from HF with 2 D cells, $3.99 each. I bought 4 for the family years ago and still going strong. Probably won't help with your tomato rat pets!

RE: fire ban

Do the fire bans include pellet stoves? I'm still thinking about buying one.

RE: How many amps to run AC

All RV A/C units run on 20a. Look at your breakers. Running more than one A/C unit or a lot of other things at the same time can get problematic.Yes, but running the entire rig on 20A is much more questionable due to other draws as you point out. PLUS 20A for the rig often involves more voltage drop to the rig than 30A or 50A. Hence it can be a iffy power situation.

RE: How many amps to run AC

But don't be surprised if you have issues running the A/C on 20A. I'd certainly monitor the voltage. Many CG's have 20A plugs often with 30A and 50A on the pedestal.

RE: Pellet Grill

OP here. Appreciate all of the great input on pellet grills.

RE: battaries not holding up

thanks for all the feed back yes the refrig was running on LP. guess I need to have the batteries tested the bad side is I don't dry camp much hate to put out a lot of money just to have them go bad again. I have 2 12 volt deep cycle batteriesIf you mean marine deep cycle batteries then they are just slightly better than starting batteries and are not deep cycle batteries. But they should be OK for a night. How did you recharge for the second night?

RE: battaries not holding up

Most "new to me" units come complete with dead batteries.Good point, have the battery load tested at a auto store. My 2 year old "new to me" rig came complete with 6 bad batteries which were replaced at the owners cost. Still going strong after 5 years with good management.

RE: battaries not holding up

I went dry camping for the first time in my new to me 2014 class c and to my surprise the batteries did not make it thru the night the next night the only thing I left on was 1 led light and the refrig. when I got up same thing batteries volts around 5.5 is this normal?5.5V is dead and the battery will quickly become bad at those voltages. How many and type of battery and what loads did your run? Seems like you need to become much more aware of and manage to your setup. Batteries have limited power and shouldn't be discharged below 12.1V or you will be buying lots of new ones.

RE: Losing power while plugged into Shore ? Follow up more info

As I recall the Sola Basic automatically adjusts the voltage and is for 30A power not 50A. But almost all of my low voltage has occurred on 30A.

He could also take the Skagway Haines ferry.

RE: Losing power while plugged into Shore ? Follow up more info

My question, is there a device to reduce a campground voltage coming in? I'm at the other side of this problem.The Sola Basic is available in Mexico and controls both high and low voltage. Poster pianotuna is in the process of getting one. Search on Sola Basic.

RE: Losing power while plugged into Shore ? Follow up more info

Your PI unit is working as designed, low voltage on either leg caused both to disconnect. So far I've only been to one CG with low voltage on a 50A plug. It was very hot with lots of A/Cs running. Also somewhat older CG so that may be a factor. 30A low voltage is much more common. BTW The only way maintenance can properly check a pedestal is with a monitoring device over time. No doubt they know about the problem and you were stone walled.

RE: LA to mono lake RV friendly gas stations.

The National Truck Stop Directory with RV information covers those roads.

RE: Power in Only Part of RV

Let's review: Gen died, no shore power, slides won't come in, batteries discharged, batteries questionable, engine won't start due to slides out and no voltmeter. :@ Time to call for help. :B

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2016

Deep Creek Beach north of Homer was very interesting, dry camping.

RE: Refrigerator current draw ?

Since propane is out for you you could go the 12V and inverter route. But be advised that if you refer is 240W it draws 2A AC and about 22A for the inverter. For that DC draw you need much heavier wires from the alternator to the inverter. Installing the inverter in the truck may be the better option.
