RE: Inverter/Alternator Question

Winnebago uses a continuous duty solenoid that is activated by a wire from the RUN terminal on the ignition switch to connect the alternator output to the house batteries. When the engine is running you should see about 14.4 volts on the house batteries. The solenoid does not have a good record and it seems to be an item that fails fairly often.

RE: popping sounds from leveling jacks

I have had that happen at night when the rear jacks were extended a lot because the rear was pretty low. I stopped it by adding some leggo blocks under the jacks to reduce the extension.

RE: Full-timing in same TT for over 10 years .. anyone else ?

We fulltimed in a travel trailer for 4 years about 25 years ago. I prefered it in many ways to our current coach. I liked the ease of just being able to exchange propane bottles at any Home Depot instead of moving the whole rig to a fill station or hunting for a company that would come to the park and fill. I liked having my home where I could live in it when major mechanical repairs were neded. There are good things about the coach, too, which DH prefers. You can install an Extend a Stay or Stay a While tee that will let you use an exterior bottle so you don't have to move your motor home to fill with propane. HERE Or HERE

RE: water pressure reducer

Increasing pressure will increase flow. Increasing the orifice size by using a high flow regulator will increase flow without increasing pressure. I have my Watts regulator set to 65 psi. Winnebago tests the system to 85 psi and the faucets are supposed to be rated to 85 psi. The unregulated pressure at my house is about 135 psi and the house Watts regulator is set to 65 psi as recommended by the technician that replaced the one that had died sometime before I bought the house. When we first moved in and the hose from the house to my motor home swelled way up I figured there was a problem and a pressure check on the outside hose bib confirmed it. The house faucets all survived the high pressure even though they are rated for 85 psi max.

RE: slide topper banging in high wind

It sounds like the slide topper anti-billow device is doing it's job. If you take a look at the topper you should see a little arm projecting from one of the awning roller ends. When a cross wind is strong enough to start to unfurl the awning the piece hits a small plate on the side of the motor home which prevents the awning from unfurling.

RE: Neat Things to See from St George, UT to Branson, MO

The CO National Monument in Grand Junction is worth taking a look at. Here is part of a blurb from the web site. "Colorado National Monument preserves one of the grand landscapes of the American West. But this treasure is much more than a monument. ...." The Dinosaur Museum in Fruita (a few miles from Grand Junction) is neat also. If you have time for a detour south of Grand Junction a little, there are a number of great national parks like Arches that are well worth seeing.

RE: Fulltiming with a CPAP

That really is pretty cool. Thanks for the info. I noticed the average pressure fluctuates. Does that imply the CPAP determines the pressure setting automatically? BTW, I am NOT trying to hijack this thread. Yes the unit I have has an auto mode where it determines a pressure setting it calculates using an algorithm Respironics developed. I no longer use that mode though, just a set pressure of 11.5 inches H2O. The data is old and my AHI for the last six months is now 1.32.

RE: Fulltiming with a CPAP

The newer ones have some neat features. Below is a couple of examples of some of the data you can veiw. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v425/ClayL/Screen%20shots/CPAPstatisicsview_zps754df056.png http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v425/ClayL/Screen%20shots/sleepyheadgraphs2leakshown.png

RE: Fulltiming with a CPAP

I have a Respironics Signal One 60 Series and my wife has a Resmed S9. Both are very quiet and both have detachable humidifiers. Both can operate on 12v DC. Both have autostart and have features that are similar between the machines. The display is nicer (color) on the S9 but for me the Signal One is easier to set. Both are fully data capable and software that allows you to read detailed reports on how effective your treatment is, is available for both. Either one would be fine I think.

RE: Fulltiming with a CPAP

As amandasgramma said. Makes sense to me, although I don't use a humidifier. Appears that even with the King bed there are night stands on either side of the bed, albeit small. Think I'd figure out a way to utilize one of those areas as best you can. CPAP's aren't they fun !!!! :Z Yeah and it is even more fun when your wife is also diagnosed with sleep apnea and has to have one - with supplemental oxygen at night. We ended up with the oxygen concentrator under the dinette and ran the hose back to the bedroom. She had to coil the oxygen hose up every morning and put it between the back of the dinette seat and the wall.

RE: Workhorse Repair Centers?

I got that code and had to pull over to the shoulder. I turned the key off, waited about 60 seconds and then restarted the engine. It worked fine for the next 800 miles and three days. We were heading to ID and part of the trip in ID was through a canyon with no shoulders. The local Workhorse dealer in Grand Junction CO admitted that he had no way of determining which of the two possibilitys (TAC module and the TAC pedal assembly) was the problem so I bought the two items and replaced both myself. The large plug on the module and the plug on the pedal assembly each have a connector with a keeper that has to be removed before the tab on the side of the plug can be squeezed to release the connector. The keepers pull up and out of the connector and then the tab can be squeezed. On the pedal assembly it was easier to remove the three bolts holding it to the bracket and then remove the keeper and connector.

RE: Command Products

Since we are getting our motor home ready to sell, we removed a bunch of them - some of which had been in place eight or nine years. They all came off with no problem.

RE: Anyone replace their tank sensors?

The problem is due to tank wall getting crudded up with water bearing stuff that fools the sensors- not with the sensors. There are some shielded sensors that extend out into the tank past the gunk on the wall. A number of people have posted that they work well. See HORST PROBES I have a non- contact system with sensors on the outside of the tank and it still lies when the tank walls get crudded up too much.

RE: Oxygen concentrators

Oxygen should not flow except when the patient inhales. The patient breathes in the Oxygen and exhales a normal breathe. The concentration of oxygen from the patients exhaled breathe will be no greater than a person breathing unassisted. not all concentrators use a breath regulator, many are free flow and yes it would be hard for them to build up a concentration..inside the whole rv but yes there is excess oxygen around the nose piece please be careful with the hose, a snag, break or worn spot can cause a fire don't drag the hose/tubing around electric heaters or any form of heat Yep, the one my wife uses at night is a free flow type. It connects to the hose from her CPAP machine.

RE: Help. Please?

Thanks for the pics. I need to figure out how to change my settings so I can actually see them. :-P My husband's already asleep (he's sick) so I will look at his machine tomorrow morning and post the info. Thanks for all the help---I appreciate it! Assuming that the machine is fully data capable and assuming that you are wanting to see the full menu you can go to this CPAP FORUM and download the clinician setup Manuals.

RE: lcd readouts on instrument panel on workhorse chasis

There was a recall on the panel back in 2004 and I have seen a few posts in the last few years that talk about a service bulletin but no one has ever posted a link and Actia didn't know anything about it when I called them. I have never seen a warranty statement on the panel. The recall info is: 50402-C Defect Summary: CERTAIN CLASS A MOTOR HOMES BUILT ON WORKHORSE CHASSIS FAIL TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD (FMVSS) NO. 101, "CONTROLS AND DISPLAY" AND STANDARD NO. 105 "HYDRAULIC AND ELECTRIC BRAKE SYSTEMS." MODELS WITH ACTIA INSTRUMENT CLUSTER, THE INCORRECT SOFTWARE PROGRAMMED INTO THE CLUSTER SUCH THAT CERTAIN WARNINGS ARE NOT DISPLAYED. Consequence Summary: INCORRECT SOFTWARE MAY NOT HAVE THE ABILITY TO ILLUMINATE WARNING LAMPS INDICATING BRAKE SYSTEM FAILURES. THE STANDARDS REQUIRE DRIVER WARNING WHEN BRAKE FAILURE CODES ARE SET. Corrective Summary: WORKHORSE IS CONDUCTING THE OWNER NOTIFICATION AND REMEDY FOR THIS CAMPAIGN. OWNERS MAY CONTACT WORKHORSE AT 1-877-294-6773 .

If you go HERE you can download the complete manual for the Actia instrument panel. I think it has what you need.

RE: Windows 8 Data Usage

I had turned off all the apps I could by going to the start screen, right clicking the apps and clicking "Turn Live Tile Off". We were still using over 5 GB per month each while in the past with we had used less than 2 GB or so each per month (two laptops). I could not find out what was causing the much higher data usage. We were grandfathered with an unlimited data 3G Verizon data plan so it didn't cost anymore but I was concerned about switching to 4G and losing the unlimited data plan. Since we stopped full timing and snow birding, settled down in a house we bought in CO and will be selling the rig, we had the option of dropping the Verizon data plan and going with a cable internet connection which we did. Unlimited data at 30 Mbps for $39 per month.

RE: low pressure in kit sink

We spent winters in an AZ RV park where the water pressure varied a lot depending on how many people were using it and whether the well pump had just reached the high cut off pressure or was approaching the low start up pressure. We always left the pump on and kept water in the tank. That way when the pressure went down, the pump kicked on and brought the pressure back up with water from the tank. Nothing wrong with using water from your tank and I never blew a fuse.
