RE: Battery on trailer breakaway switch

I have a question about the break away system. I bought a new 16' landscapers type trailer in the late '90's. It had the breaker away brake system on it, with the small square 12 volt battery on it. After a couple of years or so. I wondered about how the battery was holding up. So I took it in to my heated shop for the winter, thinking that it might need charging. It did not need charging, and was in good shape. A few years later I bought a new flat bed, it also had a break away break away system on it. But this one has touch pad type push buttons on the battery box, to check the battery. But I find that I don't unplug the battery when the trailer is not in use, the battery will run down. Are all of these like this? I find this is a pain to remember to do. Thanks, Dusty

RE: Faulty black water sensor

Check out SeeLevel Gauges. A different type of level sensors. I've put them on our last two mhs. Dusty

RE: Porch Light on a Jamboree 31M

With switch on, check for voltage from center pin in fixture, with bulb removed, to ground, frame or anywhere easy to get to.

RE: Keeping it cool?

If the sun is shinning on your wind shield it will heat the glass and that heat will radiant back into the coach. So I run the cab air conditioner on defrost.

RE: Another Tire Blowout

I prefer to use a radiant thermometer rather than a tire gauge. I once got my tandem axel flat bed trailer out, and before I loaded it I used my tire gauge to check the tires, they were all OK. Maybe 3 hours had pasted before we were all loaded up and ready to go. We drove about 8 miles and then stopped at a grocery store, and while my wife was picking up a couple of things, I check the trailer tires again. We had a nearly flat tire. Apparently the valve stem valve stuck when I checked the tire with the tire gauge and leaked.

RE: Planning for inverter for elec. refrig, while driving

I hope I am doing this right. I see things you all post but have a question. How do I ask a particular person for more information on their answer to another post? For example above Gdetrailer mentions Tripplite inverter. I would like more info. Thanks John If you click on the persons name/handle on his post, that will take you to where you can pm him.

RE: sewer hose ideas

Unless we are on a permanent hook-up, which is only once a year, I a fitting only on one end of our sewer hose. The square rear bumper on our Itasca is aluminum, never any rust.

RE: Kids and class C

Why not just stop at a rest stop every couple of hours?

RE: No E-start. What?!

Does the coach battery charge while driving?

What is the I.D. of the PEX water lines that is used in mh's ? Thanks, Dusty

RE: Generator calculation

Refrigeration compressor motors are the hardest starting motors.

RE: Tractor Supply and Blue Rhino

Last I knew when you do an exchange with Blue Rhino you get less than 20 lbs. maybe 15.

RE: Heater Ghost

It's possible also that there's a short in the control wiring to the thermostat. In at least some setups, this runs via the air conditioner's control board, so that could be a part of the wiring. It could conceivably also be a malfunctioning furnace control board, though that's not the sort of way I've generally heard of them failing. Basically, the furnace will run whenever its two control lines are connected together. Depending on the system, one of them may just be ground, so shorting the other wire to ground would be functionally equivalent. I think others have +12V rather than ground on the "other" control line, and possibly there are some further variations. X-2 Dusty

RE: Propane Issues in Cold weather

Perhaps you got butane instead of propane. Butane stops vaporizes at about 30 degrees above 0 Fahrenheit, where propane around 64 degrees below 0. Dusty

RE: windshield cover

We have the solid white cover that works very well. The down side is it severely limits our outside view. So last year, we ordered one of these, works great and is really easy to install. Gary We also have one of those. Works very nice. Shade Pro.

RE: Black tank

I would think it would take a long time to dry out. I was wondering how long it would be before the waste would start to decay?

Black tank

Just curious. What is the longest that some of you have left your black tank go without/before dumping it? Dusty

RE: Can I JUST replace the tank?

Not sure about the permeant LP tanks installed on mh but the portable ones 20 & 30 etc the fitting on the tank is left hand thread.

RE: Anyone added self-leveling jacks?

I've been using scrap blocks of treated 2x6 & 4x6 lumber for more than 30 years. I looked at power levers once many ears ago, and decided that they added a lot of weight and were rather expensive. I just glue a cat's eye/round level to the dog house where I can see it from the drivers seat. With a little practice one gets to know how many blocks to put under which wheel.

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.
