RE: fuel pump for auxiliary fuel tank

If you decide on a high output transfer pump a timer in the power circuit "might" be a smart idea. If you forget it is on you could easily overfill your tank and pump fuel onto the road. I know I would :} Jim

RE: Jack for changing flats?

Road Side Emergency Insurance (Coach Net)-Cell Phone-No Spare. Pretty standard for a heavy Class A. Replace them all after 10 years no matter how good they look. Jim

RE: Keystone Furnace and outdoor stove WONT LIGHT HELP!!!!!!!

Roy, FWIW we have been using a small Mr-Buddy heater plumbed to our onboard propane tank for the last 10 years in three different motorhomes. We run it 24/7 when it is cold and are still healthy. Our detectors have never come on except when I test them. We leave a roof vent slightly cracked open to satisfy the instructions provided with the heaters that a fresh air opening equal to a 3" diameter hole is provided. Jim

RE: ryobi 2200w generator extended run tank

The key is it needs to have a fuel pump. The Honda EU series does. I have a 3 gallon outboard type tank for my EU1000. Jim

RE: cable routing for solar - vent pipe or drill roof?

I ran mine through the side of the refer vent then down through the floor of the refer access from outside then down through the floor and on to the battery area. I used #4 welding lead from the roof to the controller for 800w of panels (6 panels). I like welding lead due to its flexibility. I see as high as 43A at 12V at times. Jim

RE: BTU versus watts, Propane versus electrical heaters

I have posted this before but we are still alive so I will post it again. For the last ten years and three different coaches one class C and two class A. In all of them we have used a Small Single block MR Heater propane heater plumbed to the coach on board propane tank. We have Two CO detectors that never make a sound unless I test them which I do regularly. There is no odor from the heater. We have no unusual moisture inside. Many have screamed we we were going to die. Nope-doing just fine. We use non serviced sites in state parks most of the time and virtually never use our two furnaces. Jim

RE: LEDs on running lights on truck camper

My coach has always on when driving headlights only. I replaced all of my clearance lights with LED lights just because I like the looks of them :) Jim

RE: California Towing Speed Limit

A number of years ago I was traveling on I-5 in Northern CA in my car with a little 4 foot square box trailer and was stopped and cited for 60 in a 55. Some officers take their job quite seriously. Jim

RE: Itinerary ideas for Oregon Coast

If your a airplane fan the Blimp Hangar south of Tillamook has a interesting display of vintage planes inside. Jim

RE: Solar For Motor Battery Only

If you disconnect the battery from the vehicle electrical system it "might". Jim

RE: Considering a generator purchase - need advice

Something to consider when buying a portable generator is how noisy it is. How much noise do you want to expose your family to when camping. In the portable generator market quiet costs money. Honda EU series generators are quiet. Most cheap ones are not. Jim

RE: Another Battery Question plus more

Solar is great but you have to consider where you park to make it work. If you want to park in a shady site to keep cool your solar system will not do you much good. A Honda EU 1000 run on gas will charge your batteries and it is nice and quiet. I use one for battery charging when my 800w solar system will not keep up with our power use. The sun does not shine all the time here in NW Washington. I use a 3 gallon outboard fuel tank with my 1000 and it will run for our needs when weather reduces the solar output to near nothing due to clouds and rain for a week without refueling. The 1000 has over 2000 hours on it without any problems. Jim

RE: (FINAL Update )...Alternator voltage too high, question

Modern automotive charge systems nowadays have a maximum charge voltage of 14.9-15-2v. That is NORMAL. My Full River 6v AGM house batteries recommend a 14.9v charge rate. Jim

RE: Are Engine and House Batteries Connected?

If your electrical system doesnt charge your chassis battery when you are on shore power get yourself a "ultra Trickle/Start". Its a little electronic box that has three wires that are simple to connect. The instructions are good and easy to follow. Best Converters has them. Jim

RE: Generator Exaust

We use our Gen-Turi every time we camp on our Onan QD 7500. Its outlet is slightly above roof level. It is safer for us and not nice to blow our generator exhaust gas and noise to our neighbors. Jim

RE: Leveling the RV

We use the bathroom door open to see front to back level and a 2' carpenter level on the floor for side to side level. Close enough. Jim
