RE: Filling water tank without pressurized hook up

Why would it be any harder to fill the tank than to empty it?

RE: Filling water tank without pressurized hook up

Dpopps has it right. You don't need anything more than what you already have.The winterizing hose stuck in your bucket of water and the right valve settings will put the water from the bucket into your water tank.

RE: Filling water tank without pressurized hook up

Your onboard water pump will do it. You don't need a extra pump. Jim

RE: Filling water tank without pressurized hook up

The connection and hose you have to suck antifreeze through your water system bypasses the water tank when you are putting antifreeze into your water lines. You can experiment and you will find that with a different valve setting that hose will direct its flow to your tank instead. I have a Water Works Utility Panel in my Sportscoach and I can do that procedure with it. I recently bought a 30 gallon water bladder from Amazon that I can put in the back of my Samurai and get water from a campground community water spigot. Saves having to move the RV after it is setup.

RE: Cracked turbo exhaust outlet tube

Exhaust flex pipe would not stand the pressure created by the EB. That doesn't look like a very well designed EB mount. Mounted directly to the turbo outlet is a lot better.

RE: M/H to Toad Braking Systems

Just a point about these kind of threads. When the question is asked in almost every case the posters that answer will recommend the system they have. It is VERY unlikely that any of them has had experience with other systems just the one they have. Just something to consider when making the choice for your needs. Jim

RE: M/H to Toad Braking Systems

Another vote for Ready Brake. I have been using one for 7 years without any issues. Simple, effective and inexpensive.

RE: Yellowstone - inside park campground recommd 30 ' trailer

Madison is a good place although most sites are pull through. We had plenty of room for our 31' class A and toad.

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

RE: Solar Panels - worth it?

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

RE: Praises for Randy at bestconverter.com

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