RE: rv extension cord

SOW is the cord type and rubber flexibility vs plastic and cost are the main consideration for RVs. Cord weight difference is minor.

RE: Fridge on propane while driving

You need to do what is right for you. I leave it on due to the very low risk of a propane issue when driving, some turn it off. For me the much higher risk is other drivers like the driver 2 days ago that cut 3' in front of me at 60 MPH.

RE: 2001 Beaver Patriot Thunder fresh water tank overflow

I'd expect the tank overflow to be near the tank. My cab A/C drain is in the front as are the 2 front roof A/Cs. Rear roof A/C drain is in the rear.

RE: 2001 Beaver Patriot Thunder fresh water tank overflow

The water could also be from an A/C which is normal.

RE: Triple digit heat! Generator won't run

Reset and set the CBs. Check the voltage at the ATS to determine if you have gen power on the input and output.

RE: Surge Protectors, 2 or 1 or none

The HW30C is excellent and you'll appreciate the inside display. My 50A version has 11 different error codes. And it also works with a 20A and 50A pedestal with adapters. Expensive? Yes but my current cost is $0 considering I bought/installed it in 2004 and then moved it to the current rig. The hard wired version requires a data cable to be routed for the remote display which for me was more involved than connecting the power wires. I've gotten every error code except for AC frequency. Saved the rig when I got 160V on a 30A pedestal at 10PM and it shut down the power.

RE: Looking for motorhome to travel to Alaska suggestions?

Good advice above. Summertime travel in Canada and Alaska is the same as the US.

RE: Diesel Fill up

Also, you may have to go inside with your CC, to start the pump.Then fill, pull forward and go inside to pay.

RE: Surge Protectors, 2 or 1 or none

30A. The rig is limited to 30A by the main CB in the rig panel.

RE: Flat tow setup

Seems high to me. What aux brake are they suggesting? Car involves base plate, aux brake, brake away and wiring. Tow bar and safety cables. What if anything needs to be done to the MH?

RE: Parallel batteries and a question regarding reserve capacity

The battery is rated at 100Ah which is the rating you want to use for house batteries. So 200Ah total in parallel. Best to limit the drain to 50% or 100Ah. You didn't specify 2A AC or DC for the TV. Assuming AC then the inverter would draw 20A+ and your run time is 100Ah/20A = 5 hr. If DC then it's 50 hr. That's for a 100% charged battery. However RVs have other drains like refer, smoke detector, lights etc. Plus I would not use a battery rated for both starting and house. Instead I'd use 2 6V deep cycle batteries in series. Typically they are about 220Ah but designed for more cycling.

RE: blocks for leveling under jacks and tires

Plywood blocks 1' sq, several pieces glued and screwed for 2" thick. Cut off one corner, install eyelet and rope loop.

RE: 6 inch awning tear

Remove it and take to a shop or replace it.

RE: Solar Panel Mounting Advice Needed

how can I tell the thickness of the sheeting?Check roof vents like refer and air vents removing trim. Drill a small hole noting drill depth - and then probe with a wire with a 90 degree bend.

RE: Solar Panel Mounting Advice Needed

Wood is used a lot. Remove ceiling fixtures and probe for trusses. I could actually see mine. VHB tape and screws should hold. Advice: Z clips make panel removal difficult. Use 2 pieces of Al angle bolted together. Stainless screws and bolts.

RE: Propane fill for parked motorhome?

RVs have two stage regularos. Connecting to the low pressure RV hose with a typical BBQ single stage regulator may have problems regulating or freezing. But it might work for you. On my rig I could disconnect the high pressure side of the regulator and the fitting is the same as a BBQ tank. See the picture. I installed this connector (basically a extend a stay) for the high pressure connection (the one with the red shut off valve) which allows me to connect to any BBQ. Of interest to the OP is the top vertical port which is the standard high pressure port to connect to a portable tank. https://i.imgur.com/9Dcdvkzl.jpg "border=0" https://i.imgur.com/m3zZPvb.pngClick For Full-Size Image.

RE: Battery maintenance

Start with more frequent checks and learn for your situation. For the last rig I worked up to 3 month checks and yearly water addition. Besides camping trips there is dependency on storage factors including with or without power and the quality of your charger.

RE: 6 volt battery question

GC2s are about 1" taller so make sure you have the vertical space.
