RE: Over cooling a Norcold Refer

I do not believe it is a matter of over cooling anything, but rather over pressurizing the rear- the seal between the cooling unit and cabinet could be bad, as well as forcing air in the drain tube.

RE: Interesting article regarding computer security

The funny thing about freak is that it is due to the US Feds mandating weak, broken encryption. Remember downloading Netscape Navigator and having to swear you would not export the strong encryption versions.

RE: Should I go 50amp or 30amp?

A towable with 2 50amp inlets may have trouble finding that kind of power on the road. I'm the one who brought up 2 50 amp circuits on our park model, not the OP, who can easily get by with a single one.

RE: Should I go 50amp or 30amp?

I may have missed it if it has been asked or answered- but are you going to use propane at all? Our park model all electric actually uses 2 50 amp cords- one just for the conventional electric range. The other 50 amp service does provide hot water, (resistance) heat and air. Regardless, going 50 amp has no downside, other than more materials. I'm not sure I would bother with a power inlet- I would probably hard wire, with provisions for cord storage. One less connection to fail.

RE: Do I have to turn off computer over night ?

Our laptops just go to sleep- we close the lids and that's it. The only reboot is for a new kernel install, though my wife's computer always wants to reboot on updates- hers is a Dell with Dell installed Ubuntu- mine is an inherited Acer laptop with Debian Squeeze dual booting with Windows 7. I do boot in to Windows every few months to update it. Just did last night, and it took like 2 hours to update, several reboots (?!) The desktop powers down every night, turn on every morning when I get up. By the time I need it is is "warmed up :)

RE: Spammers Motivation?

Motivation is 99.9%money- Having the same public email address for 15 years now, I get a ton of spam (between 300 and 1000 per day)- enough that when I used local spam software, it took my computer 10-15 minutes to download and filter all of it. Now I let Google filter the spam. On one of my blogs, I get between 10 and 150 spam postings a day- every now and then I get one like this: {This|This particular|This kind of|This specific|That|The following|This unique|It|The|This approach|This valuable} week’s {calendar|diary|work schedule|appointments|schedule|date|appointment setting}, {April|04|Apr|The spring|May|August|The spring of|June|July|February|Spring} {11|Eleven|14|12|13|10|Twelve|9|Thirteen|Sixteen|Nine} {to|in order to|to be able to|for you to|to help|so that you can|that will|to help you|towards|to make sure you|to successfully} {17|Seventeen|18|19|Teen|Seventeen-year-old|Eighteen|Nineteen|16|20|15} {By|Through|Simply by|By simply|By means of|By way of|By just|As a result of|From|Just by|With} {Posted|Published|Submitted|Put up|Placed|Uploaded|Created|Released|Shared|Circulated|Issued}: {3|Three|Several|Three or more|A few|3 or more|About three|4|Various|A variety of|Many}:{25|Twenty five|Twenty-five|30|20|26|24|40|27|31|Twenty six} {PM|Pm hours|Evening|Pm}, {April|04|Apr|The spring|May|August|The spring of|June|July|February|Spring} {17|Seventeen|18|19|Teen|Seventeen-year-old|Eighteen|Nineteen|16|20|15}, {2013|The year 2013} {Tuesday|Wednesday|Thursday|Mondy|The following thursday|The following friday|Friday|Monday|Tues|Saturday|Sunday}, {April|04|Apr|The spring|May|August|The spring of|June|July|February|Spring} {16|Sixteen|Of sixteen|07|04|06|15|18|14|12|17} Co-op {Condo|Condominium|Residence|Property|House|Apartment|Rental|Flat|Home|Dwelling|Unit} Expo {More than|A lot more than|Greater than|Over|In excess of|Above|Around|Much more than|Even more than|Well over|Beyond} {270|260|Two seventy} I let Akismet handle that- Akismet has protected your site from 33,022 spam comments already.

RE: How does this elderly Voltage Limiter work?

Didn't they use this method for regulation from alternators (or probably generators)? Also, for old inverters? Wonder what of today's technology people will look at as stone age :)

RE: Can you name this trailer?

That is interesting- the body looks somewhat like the old Avco motorhome.

RE: Placement of Hydraulic Actuator for Discc Brakes

Steel brake line is cheap and easy to work with, and there are a lot of big gas motorhomes with long hydraulic brake lines.

RE: Aux Small Propane Burner For Outside

Find a roofer and borrow a roofing torch- that's boil water pretty quick. :)

RE: Electric step

Edit- I just see you did put a Kwikee part on a Coach Step. Never mind.

RE: Charger Upgrade Question

Jose, I believe the 9200 PD charger won't fit your OEM distribution center. A good ploy is to leave the existing one in place and locate a new charger as close to the batteries as possible. You can fish the 120V wire needed to power the new charger, some choosing to place either/or a receptacle and switch in the mix. Some folks have used both their chargers at the same time and that would be efficient if using a generator if both chargers get along with each other and the battery SOC. That's what I would do- you would probably need to upgrade the cabling anyway, so mounting separate, close to batteries makes sense.

RE: Electric step

Leave the switch in the On position- Kwikee changed the switch operation, it is now an override switch, and in the on position, overrides the door switch. From the Kwikee FAQ (#2). I'm assuming the door switch does operate like it should- door open, step extends, etc.

RE: trailer awnings

Be aware that shipping on an awning will be substantial- I just paid $137 to ship one 40 miles.

RE: Atwood Levelers Control Relay

There is a relay pack on eBay, but it's for a Ford chassis. I'm not familiar at all with that system, but I suspect your has provisions for air suspension that the Ford one does not have.

RE: Confused about bearings

I'll say more than a few heads were being scratched when we came across this bearing- http://bryantrv.com/images/temp/rvnet/bearing2.jpg That looks just like a 50mm never-lube bearing. That's what it is. Not cheap.

Heck of a profit margin for the dealer :)

RE: Spring maintenance? What's on your list?

Clean spark arrestor on genset. Flush water heater, check anode, if applicable. Clean refrigerator burner. Check all detectors- smoke, LP and CO. In addition to checking the charge for fire extinguishers, also turn upside down and whack to loosen dry powder. Lube antenna (if applicable). Clean A/C coils.

RE: Propane leak
