RE: My new ride

Save your money for turbos!He just bought turbos :h I'm guessing dodge guy means, save your money for the turbos when they fail or need replaced?Ah, got it. So when should I expect mine to fail? They have 155k miles over 10 years on them, 76k of that is heavy towing. Is it time to start taking up a collection? OP - Enjoy your new truck. She's a beauty. Careful not to step in the BS here.

RE: DIY storm shield / cover for inverter generator?

OP, did any of this help? It feels like being back in the 3rd grade here, doesn't it?

RE: Water leak

That's right where the shower is. Is it a constant drip all day long?

RE: 3d printers for making stuff for the RV

Screw holes that were supposed to mount many of the items inside the box easily stripped out, often would not hold thinks in place.I've had great results with heat inserts such as THESE. It takes a heated insertion tool and properly sized holes. The screw in type inserts fail, press in type are hit-n-miss.

RE: 3d printers for making stuff for the RV

For those of you that want to create your own stl designs, PTC has a free student version of CREO Parametric. A little bit of a learning curve if you never used a CAD application but once you understand the basics it's a very usable tool

RE: 3d printers for making stuff for the RV

I bought an original Prusa about 6 years ago and upgraded it to a MK2 maybe 3 years ago

RE: 3d printers for making stuff for the RV

The nylon was for ball bearings for bearing blocks. I store all my filament in a large Hefty vacuum seal storage bag. The type you connect to a vacuum cleaner to pull all the air out. This keeps the moisture from ruining my filament. As you can tell, I'm all ate up on this 3D printing stuff.

RE: 3d printers for making stuff for the RV

I just resealed my filament bag about 20 minutes ago. My son got an Apple Watch a few weeks ago and asked me to print a Baby Groot charger stand he found on thingiverse using wood. I just printed a paint palette out of PLA to use to paint the moss on the groot. I don't recall printing anything for the camper though. I made a gasket for my thermos using flex, a doorknob out of ABS to replace a broken T handle on my shed roll up door. Made all the mounting hardware to build the printer enclosure out of PLA. I have some nylon but can't recall what I made with it

RE: Champion 2000 w Dual Fuel Generator

I have 2 open frame generators that the carbs can be removed and dried very easily. Not just drained but removed, blow out the idle jet, etc. I have an enclosed inverter model that is a pain to properly remove and dry the carb. I went through the process once and decided it wasn't worth the hassle. For this one I keep it full with gas treated with Sta-bil. So far so good

RE: Combining black & grey tanks

I let my gray tank get close to full. Then open the gray valve and allow the section of pipe between the closed Valtera valve and gray valve fill. Then I open the black valve, wait about 5 seconds and close the black valve. Just wanting to keep what's in the black tank in the black tank. It really doesn't matter but I'm just funny that way. I don't want poop to back flow into my shower if I wait too long to transfer or dump.

RE: MPG for transit based motorhomes

That is decent fuel economy. Too bad that chassis is offered only with a SRW axle. A DRW would have done the chassis wonders. RGAWR on a Promaster is well under 6000 lbs. Single rear wheels handle these weights easily. If you bump that up to a 7K+ RGAWR on a FWD chassis, you're not going to go anywhere SAFELY when you're fully loaded. Shhhhhhh. Don’t tell GM that. Clicky, clicky, clicky……..Wouldn't the rear leveling airbags push some of the weight to the steering axles similar to a tag axle? Not to mention the heavy 455 and transmission sitting on top of the steering axles

RE: Source for magnetic dipstick for Champion C46540 3500W gen?

I was unable to locate your dipstick part number in the manual. This Amazon Seller stocks a variety of magnetic dipsticks. Ask him if be has one that fits your model.

RE: Shop Mechanic in the Maintenance Department

Twenty hours a week for an allowance for a full hookup site. Interesting offer. With sites about $500 per month...that's about $6.25 per hour.I calculated $5.77/hr

RE: Water pump runs continually

Use This Link to post pics. It will generate some code. Copy and paste the code into your post as-is.

What was the resolution to the lights? Don't leave us hanging. Inquiring minds want to know

RE: LED RV Awning Party Light with Mounting Channel

I installed the RecPro similar to THIS. Look at the pictured reviews on that link. See how one guy wired them into his porch light wiring. Another guy had to run his own 12V wires. I'm just providing some ideas

RE: Need help . No shore power

Our 2010 Fuzion had a recall for the Iota transfer switch. You might check to see if your trailer is also affected.That's a good catch. IOTA ITS-50R transfer switches were being recalled from 2008-2011. Is this a 50A trailer?

RE: Why won’t my Champion C46540 generator run the microwave?

Many of the gensets have power to all receptacles. No selector switch.But this one doesn't. It's either 120 OR 240. Can't have both at the same time. The schematic says so.
