RE: House Battery on 5th Wheel Exploded

What brand and model is your converter? Some are not good battery chargers. I checked my converter charger and it is an IOTA ILC3045 which I think is a two stage charger. The battery was an interstate 27 deep cycle battery which was about 5 years old.

House Battery on 5th Wheel Exploded

The 12 volt deep cycle marine battery on my 5th wheel exploded while my trailer was hooked up to shore power. The top of the battery had three holes in it, and there was some acid in the battery compartment as well as residue from the battery. The explosion blew the battery compartment door open, preventing serious damage to the trailer's battery compartment. I am unsure about the cause, but it is quite possible that one or more cells was low on acid as I last checked them about three months ago. The terminals on the battery were tight so that didn't appear to be the ignition source. I am looking at different batteries including sealed batteries and agm batteries. I'm wondering if my on board charging system will properly charge agm batteries. I am also concerned that the charging system may have overcharged the battery and caused the explosion. Any suggestions on how to determine if the charging system is functioning properly and will it properly charge an agm battery. I have an 08 Jayco Superlite Eagle 5er.

RE: Norcold N611 Refrigerator Won't Turn On

Thanks a million folks-problem fixed. Never thought about the 110v ac to refrigerator being connected through the GFIC in the bathroom! The GFIC was tripped. Don't know exactly why, but it reset and the regrigerator starting working off of 110v as it was supposed too!! Thanks.

Norcold N611 Refrigerator Won't Turn On

I have a Norcold N611 two way (gas/electric) Refrigerator that will not come on. I have the trailer connected to 110 volt 30 amp supply and I have 110v to the trailer. When I turn the refer on to "auto" I can heard the relays click, then the green "on" light comes on followed by a sold Yellow light for the gas then a few seconds later I hear another click. Left the refrigerator on all night and nothing came on. Have gas supply "on" as gas stove top burns. According to the codes in the manual that came with the refrigerator, it means that the refrigerator is trying to run in "gas" mode which it should only be running in electric mode since the trailer is hooked up to 110v. I also checked the fuse in the breaker box inside the trailer and the one for the refrigerator was good. Any suggestions on what to check or what might be wrong?

RE: MissC has passed on

I know exactly how you feel! I lost my best animal buddy Nemo, our beloved Pekingese, about three weeks ago; I miss him so very much and still grieve for him. He loved to travel and had probably visited more states than 8o% of Americans. He only had to be boarded once in his life and that was only for a night while we attended an out of town funeral; the rest of his life he was with us! So very sorry for your loss! Hold all the good memories in your heart.

RE: snake skin

Don't know if it is possible from the condition of the skin, but I would try and get someone to identify what can of snake it was and then go from there. Knowing my DW, I would tell her before I left; otherwise, it might not be too pleasant should she see the snake while in the motorhome. I guess you could always plead ignorance though!

RE: Jayco 31.5BHDS, 2008

We own a Jayco 31.5BHDS, 2008 Model. One of the issues is that in the front area where the bunks are, it can get warm if you camp in hot climates i.e. south during the summer months. We have a 15,000 BTU AC unit, and it is not enough to keep that area cool. Possibly they have improved the air distribution system on newer models. We also had both frame rails crack above the axles. I suspect that this problem is not unusual with the manufacturers making trailers as light as possible now days. This also may have been re-engineered but frames are now being made by Lippert so I don't know. (The frame on my trailer was made by Dexter which the frame manufacturing division was bought out by Lippert sometimes after 2008. Any other questions or information, just send me a pm. Of course we have had other minor issues to deal with, but I would consider them typical for any RV.
