RE: Portable generator adapter for 30 amps

Each leg only gets 1/2 of the 7500 watts, 3750 watts.

RE: 2017 Winnebago Cambria 30J look/ test drive

You can put a pencil behind the switch to hold the pump on while pumping out the gray water tank. On our 2015 Spirt 27Q gray tank drain there is a Tee after the slide valve. The pump goes into the side of the Tee, and the other end has a screw in plug. I replaced that plug with a reducer bushing, and put a 3/4" PVC street Ell in the bushing. Then a garden hose adaptor, then a garden hose valve and cap. The gray water drains a little slow that way put that's OK. It don't need the pump. Dusty

RE: connecting a city water flange

If it's like the one that I had a part a few days ago, check valve with outside flange and garden hose connector, to inside water line, there's a rubber farrow like in it. Dusty

RE: SeeLevel II Tank Monitor Install

I installed the SeeLevel system on out '03 Itasca MH and used the existing wires. And I intend to do the same on our '015. Dusty

RE: Spare Tire Carrier Project - Under Chassis mount

Our '03 Itasca had the spare in the back up under and between the frame rails. I fixed it so I could raise and lower one side the cage it was in with a 2 pulley block and tackle. In the 12 years we used that MH we never had a need for that spare. Dusty

RE: Homade Jack Scale

A few years ago I found on the internet how to drill a hydraulic jack to add a pressure gauge. I went one step farther and added a remote hand operated pump. Now I don't have to lay under our mh while I'm jacking it up, especially a rear wheel. Dusty

RE: winter storage for RV

I put a switch in the power line to the fuel pump that feeds the generator. When I know that I'm not going to use the generator for a while, with the generator running I turn the fuel pump off and let it run out of gas. Did that for many years, never a problem.

RE: Transfer switch

But an auto-transfer switch is one more thing that can go wrong/fail.

What happens to this free standing table and chairs if/when you get accident?

RE: Running on one battery

Good time to switch over to two 6v golf cart batteries. If he switches to two 6v batteries and one goes bad, then he's up the creek with no 12v power. That's why I've always stayed with two 12v batteries in parallel. Dusty

RE: Newbie needs direction on replacing fuel filter 1988 Class C

In '88 we bought a new mh on an E-350 with the 460 cu. in. injected, that was first year that Ford injected the 460. We drove it to Alaska, and purchased a spare fuel filter. We used that mh until the fall of '02 and never used that filter. I have an '89 E-150 with the 300 six, I wonder if it might use that filter?

RE: Tire Pressure

Your posts seem to indicate you have a 23 ft. I have a 24 ft. I run 65 in the front 60 in the rears, as per ford door sticker specs. At 80 and 65 I would be bouncing all over the place, I think. Bet your specs are very close to mine. may want to drop those rears down, in my opinion X2 Dusty

RE: new to class c

That cable/cord looks like it is hooked to an air blow off valve for dumping water from the bottom of a pressure tank.

RE: V10 oil capacity

Be sure the dip stick is pushed in all the way. I've heard where on some it is easy to not get them pushed in all the way.

RE: country water / anode / Suburban / smelly water ?'n

I've installed a few water heaters. In this area I remove the anode rod. In 1980, give or take a year or so, I installed an oil gun fired AO Smith water heater in our home. Then a year later I replaced the oil gun with an LP gun. I did remove the anode rod when I installed the water heater. We moved out of that home in the fall of 2012, and sold that home last fall, 2015, and that water heater is still working just fine. There is a water softener there also. Dusty

RE: Two Cycle oil

Two things. 1 In the late 40's 2 cycles engines in chain saws called for non detergent engine oil. 2 I have an electric chain saw that calls 10w 30 oil. NOT bar oil. I don't understand why, with bar oil being sticky I would think it would be better. Dusty
