RE: A unique camper spoted

I'm not sure I like it. It really looks plane! I guess you can jump out of it in the morning as it is no longer a perfectly good airplane... :R Don't quit your day jobs just yet, guys. :B

RE: Sales Pitch and Legitimate Give-A-Way, But There's a Catch!

This form of sales trickery at RV shows is so old it has whiskers on it. I can't believe people fall for this trick. Don't do it.

RE: What age to replace tires?

I bet that in about 100 posts there will be no consensus, but the only numbers you see repeatedly are 6, 7, and 10. You pick im.

RE: RV Parks w/older RV restrictions

They have to draw a line somewhere, so that they can enforce it if need be. The good part of being a benevolent dictator is that you don't have to enforce your own rules if you don't see the need.

RE: Running AC and Fan on Second AC - 30 amp

Put fridge on propane Put water heater on propane Don't use microwave 15K A/C unit will pull roughly 16-17 amps x2 RV A/Cs draw anywhere from 12-16 amps when it is in its running mode. There is a condition that occurs when the unit starts up called in-rush current. The A/C compressor being hard to kick over on head pressure will briefly draw in excess of maximum rated amps until it gets running, But, as someone else said, as long as the 2 units try to start at once. The breaker may trip. The compressor is what draws the big amps. Just using the fan will only draw a one or two amps. No problem there.

RE: Surge Protector Reading L1

As should go to a big box tool store and get yourself an inexpensive multi meter and, if you don't know how, get someone to show you how to use it. It's really easy. I always check the pedestal before I plug in. This link will explain more about RV electricity That won't help with the OPs issue since he already knows he has high voltage where he is and can monitor the same at any where else he plugs into. Larry He thinks he has an issue. Yes, his Surge Guard protected him, but now is the Surge Guard still doing its job or has it failed and is giving erroneous readings? The only way he will know is to unplug and check the pedestal. And checking the voltage is not a one time thing. You should check every time you plug into a pedestal. A multimeter does not replace a Surge Guard or some other line protection device, its just a very useful tool that could keep you out of trouble before it bites you. A multimeter is also useful for other things that go wrong on your rig. Anytime I have an electrical issue, the first thing I do is check the source and work my way out.

RE: I built a clear black tank and tested the Sewer Solution

RE: Not given site reserved

Stuff happens. Since you don't want to upset the owners, I would recommend that you just let it go. The owners had to make the selection to disappoint one person or a whole group, who may end up as repeat customers. Or conversely they only have you telling us about your disappointment, where as if they honored your request, they would have a whole bunch of people telling us how disappointed they are. And as a side note, the group was there with cash and you were just a promise. I understand your disappointment, but if you think about it, you may have done the same thing to someone else. The OP stated that he had reserved and paid for the site. I may be wrong, but I think he was entitled to the site he reserved. Ray I read that. And he probably was entitled to it, at least ethically. But do they really want to die on that hill? They said that they didn't want to upset the owner. So it's a moot point. It's in the past, and it will happen again. They can let it go and find another place, or go back and start a battle that no one will be happy with.

RE: Motorhome fire outside of DC this morning

This comment is disturbing........ BigPeace 9:07 AM PST An RV being destroyed is not a tragedy. It would be good if they would all disappear. Yes, it is. The first post was also idiotic. But it's easy to be a troll. Seems to be getting worse. http://i57.tinypic.com/2q88x2v.jpg width=640

RE: Spring is finally coming!! Yahoo!

Nut's! I had it 7 to 1 that Bob would not have lasted the winter. Now we have another sign of impending Spring. Bob emerging from his frozen, butter stinky, cocoon and not seeing his shadow. Kind of like the Canadian equivalent of our Ground hog

RE: fire extinguishers: how many and where?

One thing to look at with the extinguishers that come pre-installed in RVs is the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) rating found on the rating plate. All extinguishers are rated by UL according to the class and size of the fire they are designed for. Class A and B receive a numerical rating to determine the extinguishing potential for each type and size of extinguisher. Class C is basically a class A or B fire with electricity involved. The C designation indicates a non-conductive agent. Class A and B extinguishers rated 1-A to 40-A. 1-A equals 1 1/4 gallons of water and is the benchmark even for non-water type extinguishers. 2-A has two times the extinguishing capability of a 1-A, 10-A ten times a 1-A etc. Water extinguishers, of sufficient size and in the hands of a trained person, can put out a surprisingly large amount of Class A combustibles. I did it several times as a firefighter. But I had a 5 gallon "can" and the proper protective equipment which allowed me to be in the smoke filled environment. Class B extinguishers are rated 1-B to 640-B. 1-B equals one square foot surface area of a liquid pool fire and is the benchmark. A 60-B extinguisher should be able to extinguish 60 square feet of flammable liquid fire by a non-expert. That's not a large size pool. Class C extinguishers have no numerical rating, the agents are tested only to determine non- conductivity. Beware! As long as the equipment remains energized, the potential for the fire reigniting is good. De-energize the equipment and then you simply have a Class A fire. The disposable fire extinguisher that came with my RV was rated "BC", That simply means that the extinguisher was not rated for ordinary combustible (wood, paper)items. Several reasons for that, most common one is the type of extinguishing agent. http://i62.tinypic.com/wa4m01.jpg width=640 Halon, and the new "clean agents" designed to replace them extinguish fire by interrupting the burning process, not by removing oxygen. Traditionally, to stop a fire you need to remove one side of the triangle - the ignition, the fuel or the oxygen. Halon adds a fourth dimension to fire fighting - breaking the chain reaction. It stops the fuel, the ignition and the oxygen from dancing together by chemically reacting with them." To much information? Perhaps. But all that being said, your best chance to defend yourself from the danger of fire is to GET OUT! Once away from the hazardous situation, you can make a judgment decision to attempt to fight the fire.
