RE: Is my converter fried?

The slides NEED the battery due to high amp draw. They are wired directly to battery. Converter alone is not enough ump Converter DC output should be 13.2V minimum when connected to shore power.

RE: Day/night shades

Replace the strings with fishing line...10lb test. This is what I did as the strings broke. They don't break anymore.

RE: Shifting into neutral

Did it stay at the higher RPMs.....1200-1400? OR did you see the increase in RPMs, panicked and shifted right back into drive? You unloaded engine/tranny so RPMs increased. They should have dropped to idle (700 RPMs) shortly after shifting into neutral.

RE: Grating Eggs for Egg Salad.

I like your french fry basket idea........ Now I just have to go buy a french fryer :B On second thought. Pass......I'd just end up eating way too many french frys. Guess we will just continue chopping the eggs up like we have always done. I like chunky egg salad

RE: Norcold Portable Refridgerator/Freezer

Where did you even find a cooling unit replacement for that model of fridge? $1300 sounds like a cooling unit for a 'larger' fridge Wasn't aware of replacement units for that portable fridge. Why do you think it's the cooling unit?

RE: Location for Converter/Charger

Relocating it can be done BUT that is going to require a lot of extra wiring. 12V battery cables ALL of the 12V DC wires to various circuits The 110V wire to the converter No it's not that much work if you leave the distribution panel where it is and just move the converter, no extra wires except for 120vac to power the converter if there is none available at the new location. I moved a WFCO from the back of the trailer under the fridge to the front next to the batteries. Made a huge difference in performance. So how did you tie in ALL the 12V DC circuits that were supported by the converter.

RE: Dogs at Mesa Verde

When we went to Mesa Verde we toured some of the sites close to roadway and left dog in truck. For extended touring we had to leave her in RV at CG due to pet restrictions. Also check in advance with ANY CG you plan on staying at about 'breed' restrictions. Dobies are on the list I always check first, thanks. However more times than not there are more problems with the little untrained, undeciplined rat dogs and thier owners ...just my experience and opinion. So VERY true! And yet the insurance companies DON'T include 'stupid owners' in their restrictive policies!

RE: Dexter Self-Adjusting Brakes?

The difference between 'self' adjusting and 'non' adjusting brakes is an actuating cable and adjusting lever that engages the adjustment star wheel. Pull the rubber plug(s) on inside lower area of backing plate. Shine a good strong pin point flashlight in and see if there is a lever (bar) sitting on top of star wheel. The star wheel can not be moved when manually adjusting brakes without lifting that lever up off star wheel. And if you have NO documentation of trailer having self adjusting brakes probably doesn't have them........typically those are an upgrade/option vs standard equipment. The EZ-Lube and Torsion Axles are standard on your trailer

RE: Location for Converter/Charger

Relocating it can be done BUT that is going to require a lot of extra wiring. 12V battery cables ALL of the 12V DC wires to various circuits The 110V wire to the converter The reverse polarity fuses only blow when batteries are connected backwards. Label the battery cables. Properly ID them and forget about all that extra work. Just replace your converter with the one recommended in it's original spot. I have never had to replace reverse polarity fuses.

RE: oil question????

Any store that has such a poor customer clientele that oil sits on the shelf long enough to expire would not be getting my business and I use a lot of oil with 5 vehicles, four mowers, a golf cart and several lawn implements that require it. :B OP didn't buy the oil from a store recently It was sitting on a shelf in their garage fro many years.

RE: There is such a thing as too much torque

Is anyone surprised that these knuckle heads got the trailer stuck to begin with :H :S :S

RE: Water heater and pump

Is is an expensive and difficult fix? Expensive......NO Difficult.....depends on where element is (Suburban in outside compartment, Atwood on backside of tank) and access to it. Which Brand AND Model do you have? AND was the trailer plugged into 110V AC power source when you left the water heater electric turned ON?
