RE: Electrical Issues

A GFCI and a GFI are the same thing. They game out in the late 60's, and were called GFI. GFI = Ground Fault Interrupter. GFCI = Ground Fault Current Interrupter.

RE: Electrical Issues

Check for a tripped breaker in the breaker panel or a tripper GFCI receptacle.

RE: How to run fridge/freezer off extra battery

Maybe what your calling an inverter in a converter. A converter changes 120 volts AC to 12 voltes DC. An inverter changes 12 volt DC to 120 volts AC.

RE: Adding an accumulator tank

I want the accumulator tank set about 2 pounds above the cut-on pressure of the pump. That way, the accumulator tank will completely empty before the pump cuts on. Since the cut on pressure can be set on at least some of the pumps, it can vary. You may have to check the documentation for your pump to find that number. (If you don't have the tank completely empty before the pump cuts on, you are effectively reducing the volume of the tank.) I think that you mean 2 lb below cut-on/turn on, pressure, set at 2 lb above the pump will never turn on. Dusty

RE: Better skylight lids for class c

Reading about the Maxaires. Do they just go over top of the old ones? The dimensions seem funny. The 1200T did. Dusty

RE: Better skylight lids for class c

I put a MaxxAir 1200T fan on an our mh. Really liked it. Then we traded the mh for a new one, and I went to get a new 1200T and found that they were no longer available. Anyone know where I can find one, even a good used one would make me happy. I tried to post a picture, no go. Dusty

RE: 2008 slide out mechanism - will it be a problem?

Don't know about today, but a few years ago, the slides were the #1 problem in break downs. Dusty

RE: Engine battery

With all the engine computers with memory the battery will go down in a few days. Twenty plus years ago the batteries would hold for several weeks. Dusty

RE: Raising fifth wheel

I have a 20' flat bed tandem axel trailer I tow behind our mh. I moved the axles from on top of the leaf springs to the bottom. Works well. Dusty

RE: Fuel Line To Generator

Most, if not all Onan generators in mhs have their own fuel pumps, they are mounted in the cabinet/box that the generator is in, behind the starter relay. Dusty

RE: F450 Drivers Seat

I've been driving the E series since '72, E-100, E-150, vans, and E-350, E-450, mhs, never had a problem setting in the driver's seat. We now have a 2015 E-450, mh. The cab seats swivel around and recline, to use in the coach. We are snowbirds and find that those cab seats while are not real bad they are not real comfortable to set in for several hours.

RE: "Plug In" generator transfer switch/relay?

If leaving the cord plugged in to generator, just turn main breaker off before starting gen, then after gen comes up to speed turn main breaker on. X-2 on above. PLUS like said, that needs to be a DPDT switch or relay. Dusty

RE: Voltage Logger...experienced recommendation?

Back around 1980 I drove a short order/service van for a local electrical contractor. One of the customers, a small factory, seamed to have a low voltage problem at times. We asked the Power Co. to come in and check it out. They put on, for 24 hours, what we called recording voltage meters, they were totally inclosed and we could not see what the voltage was that they were recording. The report that we got from the power co. was that the voltage was OK. A couple of months later another small factory, customer, had what I felt, was low voltage. We asked the utility to come in and check the voltage there, but before they got there I put the contractor's recording voltage meter on the system. That time the incoming voltage got raised. Dusty

RE: Experiences with pepple responding your selling ad

We had been looking for a nicer home for many years. Went to many open houses. About a half a dozen years ago I saw a place on Craigslist, that perked my interest. So I contacted a realtor that I had met going to open houses, to go with us to look at the place listed on Craigslist. With our realtor friends help we bought the place. House built in '94, older 55' x 88' pole barn, 17+ acres, 3/4 acre pond, and a wood lot. I wish the house floor plan was a little different, put it is a real nice place. It's kind of hard for me to believe that we found this place on Craigslist. Dusty

RE: 1988 Ford Lazy Daze with 97 km: too old?

We had a Mallard on a 1988 E-350 with the 460 V-8, that was the first year that 460 was port injected. Dusty

RE: Fire extinguisher

We got a recall notice through. in the USPS mail, it didn't make a whole lot of since, and the pictures did'n look like ours. So my wife called Kidde. Ours was not one being recalled, is the reason it didn't look right. Thanks, To Kiddy and Winnabago.. Dusry

RE: Good 12v air compressor

I have 2 or 3 12 volt air compressors for blowing up tires. I get the ones that you can set to turn off at the pressure needed. That way I can hook it to a tire and walk off and do something else, and not have to stay and watch it.

RE: Painting Inside of Travel Trailer Bumper

Our Itasca motor home has an aluminum bumper. You might consider going that route.

RE: 1000w inverter install

Check the wall wart on the end of the TV's power cord. Most convert 120 volt ac to 12 volt dc.
