RE: Anyone have any experience with this inverter.

Sorry I have no experience with AIMS inverter. Does it still look like this? Yes I believe some consideration should be given for more ventilation. http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-xuNJJb1wGVA/UtxPWcXS9kI/AAAAAAAAHZY/OJ0nZYZj_Yo/s1600/DSCN4112.JPG width=600 I understand the appeal of the all in one. However my preference is for separate components. Yes, pretty much though I have since added a solar controller! Yep. More heat. HOWEVER when we are parked, especially in Mexico, I leave the door open. The extra cords and such are now stored elsewhere. I have some concerns with venting that compartment re ingress of moisture to the electrical compartment. Perhaps a couple of marine type vents, as seen on pleasure boats, in the door might do the job. As for the separate components (also recommended by Xantrex when talking with them when this first failed) the lack of space would mean extremely long cables.

RE: Anyone have any experience with this inverter.

Sorry no experience on that specific inverter Have dealt with that resale Store and had several good experiences Did you have any luck trying to get it repaired? I have lots of parts for those old Prosine units No one locally wants to touch it. I wish we had been able to drop it off at your place but we had some rig problems and needed to get home.

Anyone have any experience with this inverter.

My Xantrex Prosine 2.0 has died. This is the second one in 8 years. Don't have a lot of room so I am looking for a 2KW PSW inverter/charger with Minimum 50 Amp up to 100 Amp battery charger. (4 GCs at the moment) This one does not have the programmable settings that the Xantrex has but for the price will this one do a reasonable job?

RE: Campers with gross mass over 3.5 tons

This is a major cause for concern for us as we have a truck camper. If we were to get a 10 year TIP for the camper ( which we have had to get once before)would this solve the problem? I believe that for a 10 year TIP the vehicle registration must define the vehilce as an RV or Motorhome.

RE: Tow bar

Roadmaster Stowmaster All Terrain towbar and the Brake Master which operates from the motorhomes air brakes. I really like their All Terrain towbars, easy to disconnect even if not parked straight or level. 32' DP towing Jeep Wrangler.

RE: RV parks or dry camping near Taxco

The link is correct, and I have stayed there in the past. However, there are some incorrect postings on the left side of their Facebook page that refer to the Gulf coast. There is also an El Paraiso near San Blas. When I saw the map on the left that is what I looked at. Why is the wrong map link the first map link you see? They need to fix that. The link posted by Briansue took me to the right page and the right map. I recognised it immediately, we had checked it out quite a few years ago, I'm guessing 12 years--it has improved much since then. We stayed closer to Chiconquoc at Trailer Park Campestre which then was very new--we were the first Gringos there and had to wait half a day for the power to be wired into the site. We visited again (by car) about 10 years ago and it was pretty much complete, lots of permanent Mexican rigs there. These are both in the 4th edition of the Church book.

RE: RV parks or dry camping near Taxco

Lots of room at El Paraiso, Amacuzac, about 30 miles from Taxco El Paraiso Trailer Park That link shows it to be on the Gulf of Mexico at least a days drive to Taxco which is south west of Mexico City. The nearest RV park to Taxco would be near Cuernavaca. There are a couple there though we havent been to them in yearsd.

RE: river barge tours

One of the best trips DW and I did was for our 20th wedding anniversary. She was informed of the flight 4 days before, and the big surprise 2 day before because we had to buy wet/cold weather gear: A canal boat (narrow boat) trip in Yorkshire, England accompanied by BIL, SIL and two large dogs! A skippered trip (he went home at the end of the day and came back each morning!) gave us both confidence and privacy. Great fun.

RE: 2 adults 2 teenagers in 28' Class A for a week?

A decade or so ago my sister, brother-in-law and two girls used to travel the coast in a VW Camper Van! As the girls grew into their teens BIL bought an old Boler TT. which he towed with the VAN! He gutted the propane, stove, Icebox etc, leaving not much more than the bunks. I think he left the sink but I'm not sure. The girls loved it--called it their Condo! They did Disneyland, Death Valley and lots of other spring break trips while in school. The girls are now out in the big wide world and the boler is gone.

RE: HWH controller questions...

I have a 2002 Itasca Horizon, a close cousin to yours. I press the jackrabbit switch once the jacks have retracted and the Low Air warning has gone off. If the pressure is high enough you will see one gauge drop (mine is the front gauge) and the suspension will start to fill and the coach will start to rise. The other gauge will not keep increasing until they are equal then they will both rise to max. If you press early, just after the warning buzzer stops, or just after the jacks are retracted you may not see any change and both air tanks will fill at the same time. It will seem slower as the bags fill. If the jack rabbit switch is NOT pressed, the air suspension will NOT fill until you put the transmission into gear. Then you will see one gauge drop then rise until the suspension has come up. Also make sure you don't turn the control panel off before hitting the bunny. On occasion I have found that the bags did not fill, which is why now I wait until the air pressure is approaching 80 psi or so. Then when I see the pressure falling I know that the bags are inflating.

RE: Every wagon masters nightmare

We had a similar experience in a small town in the interior. Clipped a taxi who was coming towards us, swerved to our side of the street and parked a foot from the curb. Trying to avoid the oncoming truck behind him I side swiped the taxi. What could I say? He was parked, I was moving. A transito happened to be on the spot. I asked what the driver thought the dammage was. The transito mentioned 2 or 3 hundred pesos, the taxixta wasn't really happy with that. I suggested that I could call my insurance. The transito saud Yes, I could, then pointed out to the poor taxista that he would have to stay until both our adjusters arrived. The taxista had a customer waiting, which is why he pulled in where he did. (Never mind that it was a stupid move and he would have been ticketed NOB I asked if 500 pesos would be OK and he accepted it and we went on our way. (More or less but that is a different story! Scroll down to Mazamitla to Coyutlan) In Mexico, in a non injury accident, the police will not get involved if both parties agree on a financial settlement. This is what we have insurance for. In our case, I offered our deductible which appeared to be satisfactory.

RE: Inverter did your rv come with this??

I have a 2000w inverter, four 6 volt house batteries. Powers, Entertainment system, a couple ac outlets, microwave. I never turn it on unless I'm going to use it. Find my self using generator 5-1 compared to the inverter. Pretty much the same here, except that when in Mexico we leave the Prosine 2.0 PSW inverter on standby mode when watching TV since the shore power is often unstable nd drops in and out. This ensures that if shore power is cutoff we don't loose the satellite signal. Our actual usage is probably opposite, in that we use the inverter much more often (microwave, etc) but in terms of hours, (heat pump etc) we use the generator.

RE: Los Mochis RV Park and Navojoa

We stayed at La Pilarica (Pemex) at Los Mochis. No problems, relatively quiet, parked next to 4 other RVs. Normally we would drive straight through but lost 4 hours just south of Los Mochis when we broke the serpentine belt!

RE: Tach reading low

Today, after grinding up a long hill, as we crested the hill it shifted up from 5th to 6th and the tach dropped from 2000 RPM to. . . 400 RPM! We'll see what it does when we restart the engine in a day or two! :h

RE: Off to Death Valley tomorrow morning

Please report back with a super bloom report and if it's still worth doing We'll do our best to report. Depending on available wifi.

Off to Death Valley tomorrow morning

From Desert Hot Springs. Any suggestions, warning. 32' DP towing a Jeep GPS suggests 15 to 127 to 190 then west through the park.

RE: Tach reading low

Next day tach performed normally and has been doing so to date, 5 days of driving, about 1,000 kilometers. Must have been a gremlin. Though the cruise control had been much more intermittent than usual.

RE: Guanajuato - Bugamville RV Park

We were there in November. Southbound from the glorieta mentioned above. Next roundabout take the second exit. Several kilometers later: Watch for the large Correo building on the left (newspaper, not post office) the park entrance is just about opposite on the right. Down the long narrow entrance road the entrance is a wire gate on the right. Power water and sewer, sites are narrow. We were the only rig in the park so we just parked parallel to the wall, 90 degrees to the site markings. This is an all new park (within a few years) not quite in the same place as the original park. Can't remember if we had wifi or not.

RE: Engine charging of coach batteries

Your Embassy will probably charge from the alternator when driving. Our '97 Commander did. There should be a large solenoid behind the front access panel. They do fail--ours had to be replaced once in 100,000 kilometers. From 50% discharge--that depends on what you have for batteries. A single small 24 or 27 probably would get close but I doubt the alternator would get the battery to a high enough voltage (14.4) to really fully charge it.
