RE: Mice/rodent proofing a camper

I live in the boonies surrounded by forest. We have had mice in the MH but have been mouse free for several years. First I crawled under the MH and sealed any opening I could find with spray foam. Then I sealed the opening around the power cord with some sheet metal cut to shape and held in place with duct tape. I keep a bated trap in the MH but haven't caught anything since I sealed up the MH. Prior to that I had mice despite using many types of so called deterrents.

RE: my black water drain...

Mine has a valve at the exit from the black tank in addition to the valve at the hose connection. Perhaps yours has only a valve at the tank. To verify that you have a valve, take off the cap and run some water thru the toilet. If it doesn't come out, you have a closed valve, or the pipe is blocked. If it comes out you may have an open valve, or no valve. Follow the pipe back to the black tank.

RE: Getting all the water out of the water heater

I do as pianotuna and CloudDriver do, siphon the water out. I have, in the past, found some foreign matter suspended in the water so this takes care of that. I am always surprised at how much water is left in the heater.

RE: Is it wise to invest in a cover for my TT?

I have never covered my RV and have had no problems.

RE: Rodent control attempt

The same thing happened to me some years ago. I cleaned up the stuff and what ever it was never came back. I never did do anything to discourage them.

RE: Electrical issue

Sounds like a bad ground. Are the turn signals or the 4 way flashers going on and off too? When the lights flash on are they at full brightness? Follow the ground wire and see if the connection to ground is corroded, or broken.

RE: Winterizing question with Antifreeze

I know no one recommends it but I siphon the water out of the tank after I have removed the plug and drained the water out. It is surprising how much water is still in there. It also gets any other stuff that is in the water out.

RE: Winterizing question with Antifreeze

You could run all the antifreeze out of the lines and what was left would not freeze, or at least not expand if it froze.

RE: Thor Chateau Super C

Am looking for a newer rig. Is a Thor 4 Winds as good quality as a Jayco Greyhawk? You will get a lot of different opinions on this. I am happy with my 2005 Thor 4 Winds. I have 46,000 miles on it and have had very few problems. I have not had a Jayco so I can't compare the two.

RE: Battery Voltage Monitor

Here is my power monitoring panel. Voltage and current for both AC and DC. Source for those meters? I'm particularly interested in the AC meter! I bought all these meters on eBay. Here is a link to the AC meter.

RE: Group 29 VS Group 27

Would I have any problem with the alternator on our E-450 chassis keeping up with charging the chassis and house batteries while driving? I don't have the Ford E-450 but I can't imagine the OEM alternator would have any problem keeping the batteries charged. It must be rated about 100A. I know my Chevy could keep the batteries charged.

RE: Group 29 VS Group 27

If it takes too long to recharge, replace your OEM converter if its a single stage, with a modern 3 - 4 stage converter.

RE: Battery minder

I have used the Battery Minder, previous version, for the past couple of winters. It has worked very well. I do switch the converter off and turn the battery disconnect switch to disconnect before I connect the Battery Minder. Nothing has overheated and the battery didn't need any water.

RE: Thor Chateau Super C

I have a Thor C. Its not super but its pretty good. You can tell me what your issues are.

RE: Battery Size???

If you have the space, 2 golf cart batteries is the way to go. They are 6 volt so they are wired in series. They will probably last you 2 nights if you conserve power, no furnace, LED lights, navy showers. That way you can recharge at home.

RE: Battery Voltage Monitor

There is no magic number at which battery life is shortened. The 50% is a compromise and is a variable depending on battery type, temperature and who knows what else. I recharge when convenient, usually about 12.3v with the fridge on.

RE: Battery losing charge

My battery disconnect switch is near the door. It operates a latching relay near the power distribution panel. Not all RVs have a battery disconnect switch.

RE: Help electrical problems! aplenlite trailer

Buy more than one fuse. Something caused the fuse to blow. You may not be out of the woods yet.
