RE: Making sure how to test new RV outlets.

Why a 400 amp service? That is a LOT of power.

RE: What trans in a 2005 Ford E450? Trans cooler recommended?

We bought a new mh this past We bought a new mh this past Aug. it has the 5/6 speed transmission. With cruse set and tow/haul on, button pushed in, when going up a large hill, small mountain, on the second down shift there seems to be a delay between shifts, from when it drops out of 4th and into 3rd. Is this common ? Thanks, Dusty

RE: Towed vehicle battery charge line

If the battery has a full charge to begin with, and it does not take much to maintain it, then it would not take a very large wire, just add an inline fuse to the wire to protect it from being over loaded. I think I would use a #10 with a 30 amp fuse, one at each end of that #10 wire, theres power at each end of that wire, there's a chance you could get a short somewhere between fuses. Dusty

RE: Transfer Switch

Is there a receptacle where the shore cord is stored and will that cord plug into it ? If so that is your transfer, just plug that shore cord in that receptacle when you want power up your mh with the generator. Dusty

RE: How do you level a motorhome front to back?

I glue a round bubble level to the doghouse where it is easy to see from the drivers seat.

RE: How to Order the Right 220V MALE Plug?

Look real close at the receptacle built into the generator It will say right on it what the voltage is and the amps are, also look at it to see if it's 3 or 4 pin. Then get a male cord cap rated the same. Dusty

RE: Quietest vent fan Maxxair or Fantstic?

Another consideration; we run the Fantastic Vent fan on exhaust elsewhere in the RV and open the window beside the bed. All other windows and vents are closed. It draws the cool night air in the window and across the bed with no noise. I've tried and tried to convince my other half that if you close all the windows except in the sleeping area that like you said, then the fan running in another area, will draw air in where your sleeping. But she thinks you need all the windows open. In our old mh we had a MaxxAir, that over the roof vent and was about a 150* U shapped with the fan at the other end of the 150* leg, which got the noise away from the open hatch and prevented any rain from coming in. I tried to get one for our new mh but that model in no longer made. Dusty

RE: Installing Stabilizer Jacks on Holiday Rambler Class A?

I have a beam with jacks built into the ends of it. I mounts on the bottom and across the mh's frame. I put it on an '88 class C, and removed it in '02 to put on our new '02-'03 Itasca Class C. But the new Ford chasie was different and I never put it on. I would part with it. Dusty

RE: Exact Floor Plan Wanted

We had an '03 Itasca 24V. You could not sit up in what we called the crow's nest, cab over bed, but it had more head room than the '88 Mallard that we had before. I don't think there is a cab over bed made that one can sit up in.

RE: 110 volt outlet for trailer behind class A

Why not charge them like travel trailers do, from the tow vehicle when driving ?

RE: CO2 Detector and Thermostat

Maybe the problem is not with the thermostat but somewhere else.

RE: Furnace help

Also if you are not plugged into 120 AC and your battery is low, the fan in then furnace will not run fast enough to activate/close the sail switch. Dusty

RE: Leaking water hose

You can get hose gaskets/washers that are large O-rings, they seem to work much better.

RE: Furnace on shore power

Sorry double post.

RE: Furnace on shore power

I usually install a toe kick heater, small electric furnace, where ever it is convenient. Works much better than an electric heater taking up floor space and in the way. Also control it with a wall thermostat. Which works much better than the one built in that electric space heater.

RE: Furnace on shore power

If you plan on using 1500 watt heaters it is good to replace the OEM 120 volt outlets with ones that have screw terminals. I've done all of mine except for the gfci in the bathroom. Those OEM 120 volt outlets are made/rated to not need to be installed in an outlet wall box. While standard home receptacles, most with screws are required to be installed in a box. It is also required that the wires have 6 inches of wire beyond the opening of the box before they are attached to the device, receptacle or switch. Most RV walls are not deep enough for a receptacle box.

RE: "Buzzing" from Ignition and Brakes: Ford F-53

Winnebago has alarms for different things. On our new Itasca, we had a dinging alarm that took us a while to find. Thought that it had something to do with the slide, first MH with a slide that we have ever had. Finally found that the swiveling passenger seat lock was not latched. I

RE: Help with towing

If you use a weight distribution hitch, it will increase the rating of the hitch. Just read the fine print on the hitch.
