Trojan and Rolls for conventional flooded cell, and Full River for AGM (Full River makes AGMs for Rolls).

RE: Simple Inverter Setup Test - FAIL>?

Not enough battery, need better connections than clamps. Agree try a small load, then move up.

RE: Sky Deck Renovation

That "metal trim" is structural- the floor (and walls and roof) is laminated with the aluminum framing in place, then the cutouts are removed with a router.

RE: I need help!

On the older Dometic analog, remember that for high fan, you must hook up both high and low (orange and blue in the above pic). The leads switch grounds for the relays in the upper boards. FWIW- They use 2 relays for the fan- the low fan wire hooks to an on-off relay, the high fan wire hooks to a high-low relay. This way it is impossible to energize both speed windings.

RE: Playing Android via trailer Jensen radio?

Another vote for a Bluetooth audio reciever adapter- average seems to be under $30, and if the quality is good through the USB cable, it should be good through the Bluetooth adapter.

RE: New life for old XP

Or you can buy an external DVD burner for around 30$. Thanks, I just want to try LINUX on that computer since I'm almost ready to junk it. I would really try Lubuntu, which is a lightweight version that will actually run on a Pentium II, and should be fast on any modern box. If you poke around, there are instructions on installing it on a USB drive.

RE: Playing Android via trailer Jensen radio?

Try the Android in another stereo, and try another MP3 player through the aux input. Another thought would be a bluetooth receiver.

RE: A&E awning to Carefree

Most of the dislike for electric models is due, IMHO, to A&E models. Most Carefree models can be tilted (and they roll up and down to the tilted position).

RE: Koehler 5 confidant generator

Sounds like a governor problem on the Koehler. Does the speed recover at all under load, or does it just keep slowing?

RE: Hard Start kits: Supco SPP6 vs. Dometic #3310727.015

I read somewhere on this forum how you can tell if your AC already has a hard start kit on it by the serial numbers ?? I cannot find that thread , can anybody help? Chris Bryant >?? Only for Coleman (RVP) units- the second number of the second string tells what it has- like 7333-6664 If that number is a 6, there is no start kit, a 7 means PTCR kit, 8 or 9 means a relay based kit.

RE: Ac compressor won't kick off

It is the thermostat- that is the only component that would do that- the OP has a purely mechanical setup- no relays, no electronics, just a mechanical thermostat and switch.

RE: New life for old XP

The coolest thing, IMHO, is taking the hard drive out of the XP computer and running it as a virtual machine- not really easy, but possible. ( note the disclaimer). Easy to take a snapshot of the whole thing for backup, no need for installation, activation, etc.

RE: refrig problem

Usually, that points to a bad door gasket, or the door wasn't closed tight.

RE: Propane plumbing - adding cat heater

Compression connections are not used on gas- only flair or inverted flair. I also wound not use those gas appliance connectors- they really are not meant for constant movement and vibration. A flex rubber line is what you want. Last- no, you cannot hook a pipe to a flare fitting- it will not be gas tight.

RE: Fridge Heater Element

I always use anti sieze compound. It is actually good for heat transfer, better than "dry".

RE: Water heater anode rod

Suburban does offer an aluminum anode rod if the magnesium one breaks down too quickly, but that's usually considered a couple per year- It will break down faster at the end- if it's just 60% at that end, you have at least another season before needing replacement.

RE: I am looking for a certain PEX piping connector

You can buy either a 1/2" FPT x pex fitting, or a 1/2" FPT swivel fitting x pex- the swivel fitting is easier to connect and disconnect.

RE: Digital television antenna - a simple solution

Well- it's good to know that tv antennas are just a huge scam, and that a wire stuck in the TV is every bit as good. Think of the millions of dollars that you have saved people (though forcing Winegard and Channel Master out of business is not very nice).

RE: Slide not working...Why?

Are you testing for voltage under load, or just the unconnected leads? Are you testing between the leads, or from the leads to ground? These simply switch the polarity to reverse, so the ground could be bad if you are testing to ground, and not between leads. Likewise, a bad connection can show voltage under no load.
