RE: Will GFCI work with items without equipment ground

Not sure if it still is, but adding a gfci outlet to a two wire system was a code approved way to add an outlet with a ground pin, even though it was not grounded.

RE: Atwood Water Heater Relay - Stuck Closed Again

I’ve always thought that design was flawed. You should report it at https://www.saferproducts.gov/CPSRMSPublic/Incidents/ReportIncident.aspx

RE: Older awning 2003 A&E fabric replacement

Yes, should be two springs.

RE: Expert suggestions for cyber security

Cloud flare offers a free vpn that doesn’t mask your IP address, but does encrypt and tunnel. Used in conjunction with their name server.

RE: Inverter with 50 amp service

I read the installation manual, and it appears that it will feed inverter power to both legs, so everything will work off it, up to 2kw, of course. I never could find anything that explicitly says that, but it shows that as one of four wiring options- 30 amp feeding sub panel, 30 amp no sub panel, and 50 amp service with or without sub panel, yours would be 50 no sub panel.

RE: propane tank removal

There should be a single service valve that should be shut off, other than that, no. I should add that the service valve has the regulator and lines coming off it- the fitting out of the valve has left handed threads.

RE: Onan 5500 Backfires and Dies under a load

If it started suddenly, I would bet on a broken valve component- spring or rocker arm.

RE: Is this normal for a 30 amp breaker

Is it a single or dual breaker? They often use a 30/20 for main/air conditioner, which more than doubles the current carried.

RE: roof air

Yours is going to take a very specific replacement, depending on what you have. It is lag screwed in, instead of bolts. Here is a picture from one of the training power points showing a Newmar install. http://bryantrv.com/images/temp/rvnet/newmarinstall.jpg width=450

Theft from dealership

Interesting story- a sales manager from a *cough* well known chain dealership is caught on camera stealing a mattress from another dealer. Story on WLOS

RE: Electricity? Never touch the stuff

Tell him it is a standard 14-50R 125/250 volt receptacle. I know what I am talking about.

RE: Vanhool 45’ Electric Motorcoach. For the conversion crowd.

Our local transit system took delivery of 3 of their shorter transit buses, so far seem to be working well. Built in South Carolina.

RE: Problem Removing the AC Shroud

Those go into rivnuts. I would drill the heads off the screws, drill out the rivnuts and install new.

RE: Upgrading to 35 lb tanks- super quick.

We sprang for aluminum 40 pounders, which weighed about the same full as a steel 30 pounder. Longer center rod, hard to say about the lp lines, pretty sure I changed the low pressure post regulator line and raised the regulator.

RE: Electric Fridge, Now That Hole in the Side..

If you close off the outside vents you are going to come up with some sort of ventilation for the condenser. Why, my residential fridge at home doesn’t vent to the outside? In my case, the condenser is in the bottom and I figured that air would go in at the bottom and out the top and sides, just like in a house. I have been thinking about closing the top vent though to prevent moisture and outside temps from leaking in. You think that’s a bad idea? compressor fridges don't need ventilation they need circulation. all fridges give off heat, a fridge with no ventilation will heat up your trailer, big difference between a 100 sqft trailer vs 1000 sqft house! I don’t think that heat from the refrigerator is a big concern. Our 10 cubic foot residential model only uses 140 watts when it’s running. And our 40’ 5th wheel is at least 400 sq. ft. with the 4 slides open. Keep in mind it’s a heat pump- you are getting way more than 140 watts of heat, you’re probably getting 3-5000 btu of heat.

RE: Anyone Make a 2-Tank Regulator that is Not Auto-Changeover?

As has been pointed out, a two stage regulator with a check valve equipped T is what you want.

RE: Chrome won't run.. fix

On my Linux installs, there’s a setting “keep Chrome running in the background” that you can uncheck. I’d switch to Firefox in a heartbeat if it had an iOS version.

RE: Electric Fridge, Now That Hole in the Side..

Electric refrigerators need ventilation too, depending on condenser location.

RE: AC Portable Generator Electrical Voltage Drop/Fluctuating

So the generator will work fine until you put a heavier load on it. I still say cheap genset failing.
