Dual A/C Issue

I have 2007 Winnebago with Dual A/C, this is a 30amp plug and 50amp Onan Marquis Gold RV Generator. When on 30amp service I'm able to run both A/C units with the Winnebago Powerline energy management system. This system uses a manual plug in port and a switch that goes between generator & power cord, not a auto transfer switch. Normally when running both A/C I draw around 20-22 amps. This past trip I was only drawing 11-13, but since the ducted AC is tied together it was sharing through the whole coach. But the back was defiantly cooler. The odd thing was one night we had hook up's and I was drawing 20 amps. So my gut says I'm having issues with the compressor on my front A/C unit, I'm thinking that all the bouncing around may have loosened some wiring. The other days of driving and running the generator and even being plugged in I never saw the 20 amp again. Any thoughts or trouble shooting ideas before I take it in to have a professional look it over? Thanks!

RE: Power convertor?

Follow your battery cables, usually the batteries are close to the converter/charger. On our previous Raptor it was located behind the main door, sort of under the stairs, had to remove the wall to the left of the storage compartment to access it.

RE: water in PineDale WY.

Contact the Chamber of Commerce or Tourism office. We've found they were willing to let us fill up in other communities at those spots.

RE: Reactor TH?

So far I've read pretty good things about Evergreen. But there is an issue that came up with the Amped model that is concerning. You might contact the poster via PM to see if it was resolved. Thread here.

RE: Oregon ATV Safety Card

Driver of the Class IV is only required to have a Drivers License as long as they are 16+ and the SxS was designed for that age. So if it's just an adult driving you're fine if your under 18 you need to find out what the SxS designers stated the minimum age is. All Class IV operators must have a valid driver's license with the exception of vehicles whose manufacturer recommendation allows for younger ages. (see website for exemption rules for those under 16) Meet the safety equipment standards for off road vehicles.

RE: 2006 Alfa Toyhouse Basement Air Conditioner

I'd hit up the search engine here or go to the advanced search the search the archives. You won't find much as far as the Toy House, but it was a popular option in some motorhomes for awhile, and as I recall they also had issues. So you might find some help there too. If you don't get some more detailed help I'll move this to the Tech Issues forum as you might get other replies there, but for now we'll leave it here.

RE: Oregon ATV Safety Card

All the info about program is below. Keep in mind that Oregon did this and kept it FREE. One death is to many, I'm not fan of Government Regulations but I also have seen to many clueless/dangerous yahoo's on the trails and dunes. Watching one camping neighbor being Life Flighted only reinforced my feelings. rideATVoregon.org

RE: Oregon ATV Safety Card

What is the consensus on the need? Are rangers actually asking for these from riders and what is the penalty for not having? They have and do ask for them. The first few year they were pretty cool about it and if you're from out of State they might still be. They gave people the option of no ticket, but no more riding until they hoped on the Internet and took the course. We were pulled over a couple times, one time they wanted to see the cards, the other just asked if we had them. I've talked to other friends that were down there around Spring Break and they said they were more actively checking. If you have attitude you're more likely to get a ticket. Just get it done and then you don't have to worry.

RE: Winchester Bay without sand tires

I've been there and done that. You're more limited at Winchester then at say Florence. But if you air down your tires you'll find they do pretty well. In fact the stock Polaris PXT tires are pretty amazing for the Dunes. I have had them and Big Horns on mine, loved the BH but the PXTs floated better when air down I found. If you need to kick it into 4WD and you can go almost anywhere. I would not tackle the first hill as you enter on the left, Sort of a show off hill. It's pretty narrow with trees on either side and a big vertical climb. If you're going with riders on smaller ATVs like a 90 then I'd say you'll need paddle tires. Is Winchester your only stop?

RE: Replacing Outdoor Speakers

Dennis, since this is the Toy Hauler forum and since many of the members camp in the desert or other places other then campgrounds, you might want to be the one that camps away from him. Just a thought. Camp on.

RE: Idaho, Washington & Oregon route

2. What is the best route from Pendleton, Oregon to Wallowa Lake to Boise. You really have two routes, either up to La Grand on I84 then take Hwy 82 to WL (faster route). The other route is Hwy 11 to Hwy 204 to Hwy 82. I've taken the 204 route with our 35' motorhome as well as a 39' Toy Hauler/Truck. It's a bit slow but very very scenic. There really is no other way in/out of WL so you're going to back track to Hwy 84. I'd be more inclined to take the Hwy 11/204 to WL then go back Hwy 82 that way.

RE: Onan generator problems

Dave, I've had some similar issues. At first it wouldn't run under load, but it ran for a few minutes. Then a few weeks ago it stopped running or even starting. I tried cleaning the carb. But then I found this thread which helped me out. Before I took it into the dealer I figured I'd try replacing the fuel pump and filter. Bingo. The fuel pump was the problem. Once I replaced it everything worked great. I'm not sure if that is your issue or not, but it's one area to consider. I was able to find my fuel pump and filter on Amazon. Now my generator is working as it used to.

RE: tire issues on the?

Yes it's an issue, but you learn to take wider corners as you drive. The reality is that triple axle owners haven't reported major problems over the years. It can cause some premature tire wear, but I can't say I've seen frequent posts about issues from it.

RE: Not really a toy hauler but I have questions

I'm going to move this thread over to Tech Issues from Toy Haulers, hopefully you will get some advice on your issues.

RE: TT/TH recommendation for fam of 5 with two big dogs

As you found out, should only post to one forum at a time with the same question. If you don't get replies ask a Mod of another forum after a couple days and they can consider a repost. This forum is for any type of Toy Hauler so you are most welcome! Before you get to deep know what your truck towing limits are. As you already noted all Toy Haulers have a higher tongue weight requirement so knowing that number will help you stay within your limits. I have no idea what that van/truck can haul, so you really need to do your homework. My gut says you're probably better off with a larger bunkhouse TT to stay within the weight specs.

RE: SOLVED - Onan 5500 Gold Gen - Fuel Issues - FUEL PUMP

Brendan I wanted to give a shout out of thanks to an old thread. I was having issues with our Onan 5500 not holding under load, then a couple weeks ago it wouldn't restart. I found your thread, ordered a new fuel filter, air filter and new pump. The pump turned out to be the problem. Once replaced it purred right along like it's supposed to. One note at least on our setup was that I only ordered one fuel filter, but I probably should have ordered two while I was at it. There is one fuel filter right before the Carb and one right before the fuel pump on ours. I don't know if this is normal or not.

RE: Traded in the Starcraft 21SSD

Sweet. Did you notice a towing difference? Though I guess with one bike it might not make dramatic difference.
