RE: Inverter and battery charging

If your refregerator draws .5 amps and you have 100ah battery your good to about 20 hours, not counting draws from the inverter itself, and whatever else you have plugged to it. I don't know what your TV draws or anything else you will be using it for. 1000w is not a lot, as a matter of fact 70ah is pretty small.

RE: Tires for a class c

Check the plate on the door to see what is required for you Class C, some go as high as 225 R70 x 19.5 load range G. Make sure you get at least what is required for your coach.

Brakemaster by Roadmaster

Looking for any reviews from people that have either used this, or moved away from it. I like the idea of this device, I like that it will use direct braking from my motorhome. I feel I can install it per the instructions, but I would really like some feed back on it first. One of my main questions would be what does it do to the existing warrenty. I have a 2015 Four Winds Super C on a F550 it has years of warrenty left. I just bought it at the end of this last year.

RE: New RV rs

yes it does have the three slides, we didn't take a lot of time at the dealership, but they walked us through the whole operation and everything seemed to work properly. when I try to log in on my phone it says unable to find an active member with this user name and password. works fine on laptop, Three slides on a SW, I thought that was a full wall slide, must have changed. hmmm. So how are you liking it?

RE: Just bought the Four Winds 35SF Super C

Yep, my wife keeps telling me when she does certain things inside "a man must have designed this" I go no further :) Actually, I like the way it is designed, but I don't dare tell her, she approved it. lol

RE: Thor Super C (Chateau/Four Winds) improvements and mods

I have 4 Interstate 6v, I couldn't get the same cost from Trojan. I like the frames shown above, perhaps I'll make something of the same. I also have 400w solar and it keeps the batteries in top shape, even with the residential refrigerator. I let it go all night a lot and it seems to keep it up with certain things we taught ourselves, like when in the refrigerator get out as fast as possible and limit the opening and closing. Yes, I have a generator, and it will be used on those cloudy / rainy days. But we can go for a week before having to work in a charge from the generator or shore power, and if we are in a spot where I can't or don't want to use the generator, I have two extra solar panels I can add for a total of 600w. I should say it's only the wife and me.

RE: Black tank flushing

I had a Dolphin years back, it came with one installed, plastic, pressure broke two units, yes I should not use such pressure, but then a brass one was installed and as long as I had that motorhome, never broke another unit. What seemed to happen was the pressure would blow out the back flow valve. But, being how I can get to my tank on my new MH right from the waste bay, I shouldn't worry about it so much. So a camping world I will go. Thanks

Black tank flushing

OK, so I've seen the different flushers example; Tornado, but, is there one that is made from brass and NOT plastic? I want to install one, but not a plastic one, including the jet mechanism. I would also change the style of hose hookup to the type used in our MH now. So, again, is there one made of brass fittings?

RE: What did you do to your Class C MH today???

Ah yes, today was installing EMS-HW50c hardwired from Progressive Industries surge protector. I don't remember it being so hard to bend those #10 wires around in the small box the last time :) But it all works, only three hours.

RE: Roof mounting solar panel

Has anyone tried STICKY FEET? Again, I don't want to screw anything into the roof until my warranty is up. Check my first post for phot of dimpled fiberglass roof. STicky feet As I mentioned above, you get a lot of wind especially traveling at 60 - 75 mph, I for one, would not want to have that wind pulling up on the panels, as this could pull the TPO away from the plywood it is glued too. What is worse, warranty will not cover that problem if it was to happen.

RE: Purging air from the water pump - How to

Found more info coolmom42 you hit it on the nose: OPERATION AND ADJUSTMENTS With pump switch off and battery fully charged, fill water tank, open all faucets and then turn pump switch on. Water will begin to flow. Until the water is free of air, turn faucets off. Remember, you are filling the water heater, the toilet and the shower lines at the same time. When all valves are shut off, pump will stop. Should the pump fail to stop, turn switch off and check troubleshooting guide. I just went out and turned everything back on to try it out. Everything delivers great, I think it is me, just a different sound that I'm not used to.

RE: Purging air from the water pump - How to

To all your questions, I'll have to answer kind tomorrow it's dark now and cold outside, I'll wait for daylight tomorrow, I will also try turning everything on as I did not do that, I did leave the kitchen faucet on but no change, I'll go for all, and yes, I idid install in the correct direction, but thanks for asking I did look just to make sure :) Until tomorrow I'm done for tonight.
