RE: Fuel mileage

If you have a gen then the fuel intake should be higher and it will quit before the engine. Something to consider. What I consider is where to get fuel next considering my 42' length plus toad and gas lanes are incompatible, Something else to consider.

RE: Wine Country north of San Francisco

As of 9/19/21, there are large wildfires at the trees. It probably will be shut down for the fall. Sorry.Are you referring to the Sequoia NF fire? That's not North of SF.

RE: ladder extendable ???

I carry one like this: Ladder I do not trim campground trees!X2 It stores in a 5x5" vinyl fence post. Pros: Lightweight, compact. Cons: Expensive, not as sturdy, no tray.

RE: E7 error

A simple Google Search . . . I guess it is easier for someone else to search for youX2 Makes me wonder... Saw you also have a MKX - Just had to change the original battery as it failed on my 2017. What a nightmare and gone are the days to remove a few bolts and lift the battery out.

RE: Ryobi 2300 generator keeps overloading

BTW Do not expect the Kill A Watt to function correctly with a MSW gen Never heard of an MSW gen.The low price of this gen raised red flags for me. One of which was quality of the output especially since it's an inverter type. One review said it's MSW. For those not familiar MSW = Modified Sine Wave which may explain the TV not working. PSW = Pure Sine Wave.

RE: Ryobi 2300 generator keeps overloading

BTW Do not expect the Kill A Watt to function correctly with a MSW gen but it's a great tool. At least you can measure the loads on utility power.

RE: Ryobi 2300 generator keeps overloading

Instead of guessing buy a Kill A Watt and measue your loads in amps or watts which will allow you to isolate the problem to your RV loads or the gen. First and foremost this is a 1800W or 15A gen. Ignore the 2300W as that is starting amps. Do not expect to run the AC and or the fireplace with other loads as neither of these is a light load. Also it's a MSW gen and not a PSW gen with is likely causing the TV and perhaps other equipment failures. You probably bought the wrong gen for your application.

RE: Question about 12V charging on Jeep JL while flat towing

Why not install a dedicated 12V outlet for the Brake Buddy charged from the MH?Connection to the toad battery is required for a break away situation. The voltage drop from the MH might be to great for proper operation of the brake. The Brake Buddy has its own battery just for this reason.Thanks, haven't keep up with recent BB.

RE: Question about 12V charging on Jeep JL while flat towing

I vote no since the BB has low usage for a day and as long there are no other drains. Some jeep models have the EPS running when towing and that answer would be yes. My jeep has no loads when towed and the aux brake is air operated.

RE: Satellite Pre-Wiring

HD and multiple channel reception (My DTV records 5) require better coax and connectors - ie less loss and higher bandwidth. This is for better reliability. If by dealer you mean RV dealer then I'm not suprised. I'm curious: Was the prewire adequate for the power wires to the dish?

RE: [SOLVED] Replacement plug head for NEMA 15A 10 AWG extension

20A plugs are somewhat rare. My house has 2 and each is on a dedicated 20A CB. They were intended for golf cart charging. They will accept a 15A or 20A plug. I receommend using 10 gage copper not copper coated extension cords with 15A plugs for RVs because 10 gauge has less voltage drop.

RE: Honda 2000i generator amps surging up and down

The battery monitor shunt must be connected to the single ground wire that connects to the chassis and not to one of the individual parallel battery ground wires. Recheck the remaining wires for the shunt. Sounds like you fixed the problem but a picture would help.

RE: Cargo Bay sliding tray install

NO to screws. Use bolts, fender washers, lock washers or locking nuts. Especially on a slide that extends about 5'.

RE: RV surveyors

Not many experienced RVs would buy a remote rig that far away. Why not? I was not an experienced RV'er,my first purchase was a 4 year old Hitchhiker LS II sold by a couple in suburban San Diego. We traded emails, he provided many photos shot with a 35mm camera not a cell phone. Like what I saw and mailed a check for 3K deposit. Drove to Kaleefornia, camped 3 days in his driveway; he showed us how everything worked and went through the rig top to bottom. Even gave me some maneuvering and backing pointers. Great purchase, no regrets, it can be done.There are successful remote RV purchases of course. But RVs can have significant and expensive problems that aren't obvious. And they can be ones that the seller is or is not aware of. There are many posts concerning problems that were discovered later. Most RVers (especially new ones) should have an experienced person check the RV. There are many posts on post purchase problems that existed at purchase. Even with a new RV which winds up in the shop for MANY months.

RE: RV surveyors

AFAIK none are licensed. SIL needs to be FULLY prepared with his own complete PDI regardless of who he may hire to help. He needs to be FULLY prepared to walk away. Cost, non refundable deposit, just sold, etc. Things like water damage, rust underneath and much more. Not many experienced RVs would buy a remote rig that far away.

RE: Wine Country north of San Francisco

Just don't do what we did -- we toured the Dry Creek area near Healdsburg on bikes. Wine tasting and hilly terrain do not mix. (Great Zinfandels, though.)The narrow West Side Rd, drinking drivers and bikes aren't a good mix. :S

RE: Wine Country north of San Francisco

Some many Dry Creek area. Some better ones - Rodney Strong, Rafaneli, Esterlina, Forchini.

RE: Jacked your to house batteries

What about compatibility of the Jackery with the inverter? We were looking into getting lithium batteries for our FW, but we had to check on our model of inverter and if lithiums would be compatible. BTW, we have a Jackery as backup for hubby's CPAP to use while camping. We did a test run with the CPAP which was a no brainer, but we also did a test run of it to power our Dometic portable fridge/freezer and it ran for an entire week. We've got solar panels to recharge the Jackery while out dry camping.FYI The Jackery with it's inverter output is 120V AC so compatibility is not a issue. If it has a DC output then it's inverter is not involved. Lithium batteries are very different from flooded batteries and a compatibility charger is needed. If you have a charger/inverter it's the charger part that charges batteries.

RE: Towing Older VW Beetle

The most important aspect of an auxiliary brake for me is SAFETY AND LIABILITY. I don't want to be explaining to a judge why I'm not in violation of his state laws. There have been many past discussions on state laws concerning aux brakes. We each make a choice.
