RE: Need hd tuner for TV

I would get one of these units which will also let hook up a usb hard drive and act as a DVR.

RE: Opinions

Looks like the bedroom slide is only partially out, but they don't seal very well like that.

RE: awning cover out of sewer pipe

Most people use vinyl rain gutter. On edit- Here's one old thread about it

RE: Now this is an inovative way to have LOTS of solar

Another link- https://www.smartflower.com/en/smartflower I like it- there's no reason why it would be especially trouble prone. The advantages are numerous- tracking is obvious, the panels self clean every time they deploy, panels will stow for really bad weather, plug and play operation.

RE: Installed new roof A/C - question about roof

If it's not enough of a sag to keep condensate from draining, I wouldn't worry about it- you can use a string to see how bad the sag is- http://bryantrv.com/images/roofsag.png If the base pan is above the string, good to go.

RE: 2-Way Refrigerator now pops shore power breaker

It almost has to be a gfi problem- the refrigerator has a 5 amp fuse on it that would pop first. Try it on a non-gfi outlet. If everything works, the panel gfi is bad (look closely at the neutral connection before replacing though). If everything works but the trailer gfi pops, the heating element on the refrigerator is bad.

RE: A question of filtering poor propane.

I houses it is common to install a drip leg right before the appliance- this is for LP or natural gas. On an RV it's not too easy though.

RE: Running A/C with extension cord into 20 amp outlet.

I should add a caveat- all of my cords have high quality Hubbell connectors which are replaced regularly.

RE: Quick question about propane shut off

if you shut the battery, I believe that will shut the LP as well (the solenoid draws power to hold it open), so you don't have to shut either. Test it out.

RE: Running A/C with extension cord into 20 amp outlet.

Voltage is all that matters- I run air conditioners off a 100 foot #12 cable all the time- voltage maintains above 115 volts.

RE: RV AC 521 compressor saver

Here's the Dometic kit that uses the potential relay for a decent price. This kit should act identically to the 5-2-1 device.

RE: Sensar vs. Rayzar???

Assuming you are talking about the Winegard Rayzar automatic (dome style) the Rayzar is nothing like the Jack. No- the new one. IMHO, a marketing mistake by Winegard- every new antenna is a Razar, from stick on the window sheets to the auto dome. Now the flat Razar (Sensar replacement) is gone- I liked it, as it acted like an omni when flat, bi directional raised, but with decent gain either way.

RE: Sensar vs. Rayzar???

Keep in mind the Razar has changed- it was a flat panel that I thought worked quite well for a number of reasons. The current Razar is more like the Jack. I'm installing one tomorrow, but I don't have a rig with a Sensar available to do a comparison, though I know what we usually receive here.

RE: RV AC 521 compressor saver

I hav emailed the 521 folks and they do not have a model for 120 volt operation- I haven't measured the back emf voltage on a running unit though. The Supco SPP6E is a relay based unit, and while Supco used to spec it for 90-270 vac, now they spec it at higher- and don't recommend it for 120 volt units. I'm not sure what changed. Dometic does make a potential relay based start kit- I'll look up the number. It is specifically meant to run a Penguin low profile unit on an Onan 2800 microlight. Here's the Dometic instruction sheet for the relay based kit- http://bryantrv.com/docs2/docs/quickstart.pdf

RE: fresh water pump runs but won't prime and push water

A quick and dirty fix is to use a wet dry vacuum on a faucet. Often if it is a bit of trash in a pump valve, water will flush it on through.

RE: Fridge on its side?

You really don't need to wait- you can hear the liquid flowing. As soon as it stops, you're good to go.

RE: 50 amp electrical issue

And test the other 30 amp sites- if they act the same (sag and over volt), the problem is pretty serious, likely due to the flood. If it's just the 50 amp outlet, it's in that outlet or close.

RE: A question of filtering poor propane.

Some refrigerators come with filters installed in the line- older Dometics always had one, Norcold had one in the inlet on the 1200- just a foam filter- https://www.arprv.com/norcold-will-not-get-cold.php
