RE: Any issues with running a RV generator for a cabin?

That'll work. I would not have thought about some of the RV and RV Battery cautions mentioned above. What I thought I was going to read was about using an RV genny as a stationary genny dedicated to the house. If you ever want to do that, look for a twin-cylinder 1800-rpm ONAN. We had a "BFA" aka "4-KW RV GenSet" that was smooth and quiet. In a suitable weather enclosure that also allows for ventilation, you'd barely hear it inside. One of the OP's I met from this forum, "Butch" aka "Alaskan" told me of one that made it to Hawaii and had been powering a small neighborhood of 3 or 4 small homes for a few decades. My 4KW generator is now preforming double duty. It is in it's own self contained insulated enclosed box......in bed of truck. It was/is alt. power for 5th wheel and with power pedestal it also supplies backup power to house for emergencies. Best of both worlds :B

RE: Any issues with running a RV generator for a cabin?

Generators don't care what uses the electricity produced....... MHs converter/batteries might.....in that you will need to isolate the batteries OR routinely check them for proper water levels. Depending on your charger they could boil out or overcharge Due to the multi-stage charger in my rv my batteries do not need lots of attention.......but I learned that after checking them, checking them and checking them.

RE: Refund on a credit card

Seen it credited to account immediately and have seen it take over a week. Thing is that it GETS credited without a hassle.

RE: help! unable to fill propane tank in rv

Does this is tank have a 'solenoid valve' in addition to the manual shut off valve? Solenoid valve needs 12 V DC to open.........LP Detector/Alarm tripped closes solenoid valve OR lack of 12 DC power will trip it closed also

RE: Water heater anode rod change frequency

Water heater is an electrochemical environment. water, temperature, dissolved oxygen and dissimilar metals. Anode rod acts s a sacrificial material that dissolves due to galvanic action Softened water removes calcium and magnesium......minerals that can cause scaling/hard water spots. But due to the presence of sodium in water from the softener......anode rods can dissolve quicker. Change in water chemistry. That is why twice a year visual inspection is better than some arbitrary schedule.

RE: Norcold fridge "cycling"

You have 2 DC fans..mounted on top of absorber coils (large bank of coils seen from lower vent access). Thy are automatically controlled by a thermostatic switch....mounted on right hand side of condenser fins (fin pack seen from upper vent access. DC power is supplied by control board. RED (+) wire goes up to t-stat then back down to fans. Black (-) wire from fans to board. Probably can SEE fans better from upper vent looking down. The thermostat should turn fans ON when 130*F fin temp is sensed and turn them back off when 115F fin temp is sensed. What are outside temps? Fans kicking ON/OFF.......moderate to low outside temps.......poor air circulation. This time of year normal draft should be sufficient for cooling. Check for blockage (fallen down insulation etc) There should be very little clearance between backside of fridge and outside wall. Otherwise baffles should be installed below fan area and at upper vent area to direct air flow and eliminate dead air space http://pdxrv.com/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderpictures/3108707.774_upper_lower_vent.jpg width=650

RE: Norcold fridge "cycling"

What do you HEAR? What source are you ON......electric---propane? What Model number? Is fridge in a slide-out? Does it have fan(s) installed in outside compartment? In 7 yrs. of FT (living in 5th wheel) I NEVER could Hear it running..electric or propane hence the above questions.

RE: Tree Damage to unit - structural issues???

Possible damage to roof trusses/plywood sheeting/AC duct work inside roof area/any wiring etc. and side wall studs/windows being shifted etc. They will know more when end cap is removed for REPLACEMENT.......and roof membrane is peeled off. Insurance coverage.......do not sign off/take a check/finalize anything until membrane and end cap removed in case of 'hidden damage' and then ONLY after all repairs have been completed.

RE: Long grades in the Appalachian's

Tow/haul mode...........when speed gets uncomfortable for YOU scrub 10 mph off of speed with a quick/firm braking action. Then off of the brakes and repeat as necessary. OR Take it out of OD (one more push of button on end of shifter)......then scrub speed as you deem necessary.
