RE: No AC power when plugged into a good AC shore power source?

It sounds like your transfer switch went bad. It transfers 120 volt power so your trailer can be fed with power from shore power or from your generator. When my transfer switch went bad I could only power my trailer with the generator.

RE: lets talk ladders for cleaning :)

I don't care what kind of ladder she uses, as long as it is washed and waxed when it is time to go.

RE: We've had it... It's just too darn hot in Arizona!

I know the temps are 10+ degrees above "normal." But for these two old Colorado high country hippies the upper 80s and low 90s are just too darn hot. Haven't had long pants on for at least six weeks. At home they've just seen their lily white arms for the first time in several months. Thanks Arizona for another great winter. Already got reservations for next year. At least it's a Dry Heat.

RE: 2000 Watt Invertor Issues, Need Help

On my 2000 watt Magnum inverter the manual says if the inverter is within 3 feet of batteries the minimum cable size should be 2/0 copper, if it over 3 feet from the batteries 4/0 copper is called for. I also believe your battery bank may be a tad bit undersized. It may run your microwave if fully charged, but if it has been discharged from fully charged you will have voltage problems at the 12 volt input side of your inverter. My 1000 watt Dometic microwave draws 17 amps at 120 volts and that converts to 2040 watts. With just two batteries you will probably have problems running high loads like a microwave. Do some internet searches for RV inverter problems, you need to educate yourself to continue to do a inverter trouble shooting job.

RE: Led flood light mounted on back of trailer

When I ran my wires to rear of the Toyhauler I ran them in a old garden hose. I measured how far it was to the rear of the trailer, laid out the hose on the ground, pushed the wires in the hose and then installed the hose along the trailer rails. Although not bullet proof, this method has worked out well for a goodly amount of years.

RE: Mice ate the power cord...#@%#!!!

After mice got in my trailer I tried to find all the open spaces they could enter and sealed them up and I started using "Cab Fresh" and "Peppermint Oil" on some cotton balls put in places that they might access. From what I have read they mice don't care for the smell. If the mice were in there for a while I would get a good inspection done of your rig, they can do a lot of damage and your trip could be ruined "after" you get to your destination.

RE: Inverter overload

On a 2007 Winnebago with inverter problems it sounds like the G-3 Dip Switch may have been turned to the up position, it should be in the down position.

RE: Rear Camera ?

that forward/backward thing might be a reason--- BUT why would I need a camera facing forward. Doesn't really make any difference as I can switch them but both are perm. mounted. Maybe get another dash mounted camera and make like the cops---------- I had a car suddenly switch lanes to be in front of me, slam on HER brakes to do a u-turn and I almost slammed into her car, and ever since then I have had cameras fed to a DVR facing forward, backwards and on each side of my truck.

RE: Finally made it to Quartzsite

The new RV Dump and water well off of Hyway 95 is about 1/2 mile east of the Hiway on the north side back in about 150'. Lots of people using it.

RE: I'm locked out...

We had our lock bind up a few months back and used a can of Ballistol Lube. After a couple of shots in the key hole the lock worked great.

RE: Finally made it to Quartzsite

I see on the BLM web site that they installed a new RV Dump and water well off of Hyway 95 on Plamosa Road. Has anyone used this one yet?

RE: Finally made it to Quartzsite

RE: Window trim

If it looks like it snaps in, then you will have to snap it out.
