RE: Electrical problem

This can happen on a 30 feed. You are sharing power with the pedestal in the next spot. When this happened to me I was plugged into the 30A plug. The Motorhome next to me had only 80 volts and I had 160 coming into my rig. The one with the higher load will have the lower voltage. The voltage will depend on the load on that phase. The only way you can get a 160 vac to neutral is when you tap into an industrial 3 phase 440v 120/208 source that is common in industrial plant.Even with 160 v would indicate a faulty transformer from the utility company. Power supply for residential or any occupancy designed for human habitation which include RV (in North America) are normally supplied with 120/240vac. We are talking about losing the neutral which is not indicated in the problem you experienced. The standard 30A rv plugs only carry one hot and one neutral-so where did you get the other hot leg? I am a retired electrical engineer and used to design power distribution systems for a living for almost three decades. Kind of scary that an electrical engineer does not understand this.

RE: Electrical problem

Yes a loose or open neutral can cause you all kinds of problems. One line will have low voltage the other line will have high voltage. Both will add up to 240 volts. I had this happen at a campground in Moab Utah. It cost their insurance over $1600.00 to repair my Motorhome. TV, Microwave, Converted and Refer all had to be repaired or replaced.

RE: Ford Explorer transmission problems

What are the steps you are using to take it out of neutral?

RE: Ford Explorer transmission problems

That is not a transmission problem. may be a transfer case problem. I have a 2007 all I do when unhooking is put transmission in park then unhook. Then all is good to go. Transfer case has never gone into 4low.

RE: Kayak on the back of a Travel Trailer (?)

Is it the kayak or the straps that are making the noise? If the straps do not have a twist in them they will make a lot of noise. May be an easy fix if that is the problem just a half twist in each straight section of the straps. A half twist you say? That is very interesting, I will try that on my next trip even though I don't get how that will help... Yes It will stop all the howling from the straps.
