RE: Avoid Rawlins to Cheyenne WY? Need help, Gros Ventre to I80.

Have been I-80 many times through Wyoming. Make sure your awnings are tied down well.

RE: RV Park reviews

What RV park is it? Maybe someone reading this has an opinion.

RE: Chicago Campground or hotels?

Thank you for those that inform me to not take the RV into Chicago! I did not know that! This is a joke, right?

RE: Fridge Power Problem or Not

Are you running microwave, A/C Unit while attempting fridge on AC? As my original post stated, no other circuits are on when I try the refrigerator.

RE: Fridge Power Problem or Not

i would suspect a bad 120v heater element leaking to ground aka the metal tube of the heater you can turn off the ems, or you can pull out the heater element and test it for resistance between the shell/case and the power leads it should read infinity on the ohms scale any lower reading and its defective Wouldn't it be bad under generator power also?

Fridge Power Problem or Not

My motorhome is plugged into 30 amp power in my garage. Have been running microwave and air conditioning for check out. Today I turned on my Norcold. It runs fine on LP, but when I turn it on electric, my Intellitec EMS goes up to 40 plus amps for a second and then to zero. The load shedding lights go out, and the fridge says "NO AC". (Of course, I don't have any other draws such as the air conditioning activated.) I turn on the generator and the fridge runs OK on the 50 amp AC. I know the fridge should not draw 40 amps at start. Fridge problem? Works fine with gen power. Maybe the EMS is not performing as it should. Any ideas?

RE: Oregon coast

Sea and Sand RV Park in Depoe Bay, just south of Lincoln City. You won't be able to get one of the ocean front spaces on short notice, but the rest of the park is nice, and an easy walk to the beach. I will second this recommendation.

RE: Oregon coast

Don't know what kind of rig you have, but if it is a class A, check out Pacific Shores just north of Newport, if you want a fancy (and expensive) place.

RE: Alternative to Winegard Switch Box

I have had two of the Winegard boxes in my motorhomes. Both appear flimsy and the contacts are not real positive. In other words I think they are junk. Anybody have a different brand or any model that appears to be of good quality? Looking for experience and recommendations. Thanks. I understand now they are called BOMBs, box of many buttons.

RE: Alternative to Winegard Switch Box

Well excuuuuuuuuuuuse me. Guess I will have to update. How about if you have antenna and cable and satellite input as well as dvd/tape player-recorder and TWO tvs? How do you do the switching?

RE: generac generators

Would never bad mouth a Generac. Lost power during a hurricane several years ago. Had a Generac in the Dolphin MH, which we had at the time. Hooked it up to the house. It keep everything going: water pump, refrigerator, freezer, lights, etc. until power restored. Do a Google on Generac Parts. See what you find. Looks like lots of sources to me.

RE: Campgrounds around Reno, NV and SLC UT?

Park City RV Resort (not really a resort) is just east of SLC and right on the interstate. Very easy in and out. Mountain Shadows is OK too, but it is a long way off 80.

RE: door lock

Got locked INSIDE one night on the Nova Scotia coast. Had to take dogs out through the window to walk them. Next day unscrewed the lock from inside. No go. Took door loose. Still would not let go. Finally had to cut the plunger with a saw to release. Of course I had to get a new lock.

RE: Shore Power at Home Wired Wrong and Lightning also.

Progress report for those interested: Plugged into shore power after all mods made to the subpanel to meet code, new transfer switch wired, and new chassis batteries. All power works after resetting the two GFCIs. Inverter-charger works. Started generator. Transfers power as designed. Looks like I was lucky that I didn't get more damage. Thanks to everyone for pitching in.

RE: TX Flooding

If you are wanting advice on the best route, here is our 2 cents. We go west almost every year from N. Florida. Take I-10 to Mobile. Go US98 to US49 at Hattiesburg to 1-20 at Jackson, MS. Stay on I-20 to Fort Worth, where you will connect with US287 all the way to Amarillo, where it intersects I-40 to the west. Opinions will vary, but we like this route. If you want more info, PM me. Of course, if you have to go to Houston, this won't work for you.

RE: Shore Power at Home Wired Wrong and Lightning also.

If you're going to unplug in Florida every time there's a thunderstorm, might as well go ahead and get a big solar system and go off-grid entirely. I was going to make that observation, but glad you did it.

RE: Shore Power at Home Wired Wrong and Lightning also.

But regarding having a ground rod at the box, if you mean at the box where the 30A plug is then no, it should not have one. At the box the ground and neutral should be separate and grounding should only be achieved through the ground rod at the main breaker box. Guess I was not clear in my original post. I installed a subpanel in the MH garage with three breakers, one of which is for the motorhome outlet.

RE: Shore Power at Home Wired Wrong and Lightning also.

If in a lightning prone area, I would consider installing a "whole house" surge protector at the main panel like this Leviton 120/240 volt unit. There are so many things in a house these days with electronics in them. I think you will find that for a dedicated RV single receptacle only, the NEC does not require a ground rod at the recept. You MUST have a ground conductor (correctly sized) run along with the hot & neutral conductors. But you mention "breaker" in the MH garage so is there a 30 amp recept. only or a sub-panel? It is a subpanel with three breakers: one for the MH, a 110 receptacle, and one for the door.
