RE: Wiring Diagram/Schematics

If the manufacturer is still in business a call to them could get you the schematics e-mailed to you. Possibly for a charge. I got a complete set of electrical and video cable schematics from Coachman for my coach for $25.00. Invaluable. Jim

RE: Battery Tips

Before you decide to replace your WFCO with a PD 9200 I would suggest you talk to Randy at Bestconverters. He keeps up on the latest improvements in converter technology and there are some new converters that he is now recommending. Jim

Solar panels are a sun powered battery charger.

RE: going to NASCAR in an RV

If you have a motorhome with a on-board generator you intend to run you should install a Gen-Turi exhaust extension that directs the exhaust gasses up over the roof of your rig. Some places where the motorhomes are crammed tight together REQUIRE them. There have been deaths at events from carbon monoxide poisoning from generator exhaust gasses enter there RV from a ajoining RV running their generator late at night. Camping World and many other places have them. When we setup in any campground where we intend to use our generator it is automatic I put ours up. Takes less than 5 minutes. Jim

RE: Cat 330 Engine Overheating

The issue with the plastic expansion tank cracking has nothing to do with overheating unless it is leaking and low on water. It has a low coolant sensor that will give a warning on the dash panel. The number one reason for overheating is a dirty radiator "if" you have a rear radiator. If you have a rear radiator and have not put a extension of 1" hose on the slobber tube back to behind the radiator you will have radiator plugging sometime soon. The fumes from the slobber tube mix with road dust and stick to the radiator fins. This is most often worse outside of the fan arc in the corners.

RE: Onan SuperLoud 4000 - reduce exhaust smell

Golden, The water cooled EV series has been discontinued some time ago. Had one in a '86 Class C and it was LOUD. High pitched whine from the cooling fans. Jim

RE: battery seems to drain way too fast: help

Try leaving the refer on propane and see what happens. As another poster said a refer on electric draws a lot of power.

RE: small generator for TT

What Niner is showing is what the relative potential power output difference will be in a gas engine when the fuel is changed to propane. A 2000w generator will no longer be a 2000w generator.

RE: small generator for TT

68 db may be below the Federal Parks noise limit but you will not be very popular running that generator in a campground.

RE: Generator use...

The critical numbers in the specs you posted for your converter are 12a AC input and 55a DC output. A EU 1000 will NOT power that converter. Jim

In his previous life before retirement Randy was a B-52 pilot.

RE: Honda EU Series Inverter Generator

Another plus for the EU series Honda portable generators is they are the only one with a fuel pump. Why does that matter? You can connect a auxilary fuel tank to them (I use a 3 gallon outboard tank on my EU1000) that the others cannot do. Small thing but nice to not have to worry about adding fuel for a week of boondocking while the 1000 charges my batteries.

RE: Cat 330 Engine Overheating

If you have a rear radiator it is likely plugged with a combination of road dust and engine slobber tube vapor.

RE: increase shower water pressure

If your shower head is mounted on a flex hose you will find that hose also has a very small diameter.

RE: Honda EU Series Inverter Generator

The short answer to have AC power when you want it you need both. Jim

RE: Bogus Verizon call

We have a policy if we do not recognise the number we don't answer it. At home we let them go to the answering machine. Probably 90% of the calls hang up as soon as it hears a answering machine answer. I heard on the news recently the Feds were going to the Hackers Convention that is held every year in Las Vegas to hire hackers to try to figure out how to stop all of the Robo calls. Jim

I have refered many to Randy over the years and your experience has been the norm. Great guy. Jim

RE: outdoor gas stove

Bop, That is the kind of device that will not work on the RV outside propane connection.

RE: Do I need a battery box??

How fume proof should it be? Totally sealed so it is impossible for any transfer of fumes from the batteries to the living area. NONE!

RE: outdoor gas stove

To expand on Brians post the propane outside connection is regulated to about 1/2 psi pressure like everything inside a RV. Any propane device that is intended to use the little green one pound tanks will not work on that low pressure. Those devices have a built in regulator. Some with the proper skills have removed the built-in regulator on some stoves to make them work on the low pressure line but care must be taken.
