RE: AV gas for the generator

The only advantage I see is if you plan to leave the generator sit unused for years. On point...

RE: AV gas for the generator

Without recommendation, the best quality of a gas can be proven to be a higher level of refinement. Compare two clear jars with a pint of auto fuel vs a pint of 100LL after evaporation. The LL jar will be almost clear and the auto fuel will show considerable varnish.

RE: Fall color trip to north country

Better get going, the northern Wisconsin counties are at peak right now, and much of the western and central areas are at 50%.https://www.travelwisconsin.com/fall-color-report JK Been watching this and showing first and second week. That is the reason for the pandemic travel inquiry.

Fall color trip to north country

Are there any problems currently traveling through Minnesota, Wisconsin, and northern Michigan due to pandemic travel limitations? Hoping that being .fully self-contained will allow the opportunity for mid-October travel.

RE: Installing an inverter in my Winndbago Journey

One consideration when plugging the shore power cord into the inverter is to turn off the 110 breaker for the converter/charger. If this is not done, the converter will attempt to charge the batteries that supply the inverter. This loop will either use excessive energy at a minimum or trip the inverter. We have labeled our 110 breakers for the converter charger and air conditioning and turn them off whenever plugging into the inverter. Works perfectly. Also may wish to avoid using the microwave. (Highly recommend a pure sine wave inverter when doing this.)

RE: Mercedes Sprinter chassis DEF

Did you take it to a Dealer? I had the same thing happen on ours only I had just under 80,000 miles on it. Some states cover the exhaust system longer than others, and since I could not get it fixed soon I called MB. I just wanted to know if indeed it was not covered as the Dealer said. Two days later I received a phone call from a manager at MB and he gave me a one time 40% discount on replacing the DEF Heater. Best phone call I ever made and it might work for you also. Awesome information and thank you!

Mercedes Sprinter chassis DEF

Curious if anyone has had the misfortune to have the DEF tank/heater fail. 2013 chassis under a 2014 class C is 6 years old with just over 33,000 miles indicating a failed def heater. Diagnosis is indicating a unit replacement at about $2,500. Our first and only problem but seems a bit high?

RE: Covid 19 warning

Thankfully do not know anyone with Covid, but just lost a 68 year old great neighbor to working outside his home in the heat. Be careful when it is very hot!

RE: Forgot the battery??????

You NEED a battery...which powers the trailer brakes if the TT breaks away. Serious safety issue. “Where we keep our permanent trailer” Are you worried it will roll away?

RE: Starlink beta coming soon!

Yeah but I still haven't seen the receiver (or even a drawing of one) or the downlink stations that are supposed to required in order for the receivers to work. Those downlink stations have to be fairly close too, maybe something like cell towers in order for your receiver to function. And frankly I doubt we will see them installing downlinks in between Bonners Ferry and Kalispel for example, anytime soon.-------------------------------------------------- Where did anyone hear of “downlink stations” which would defeat the entire concept of thousands of lsats to provide service everywhere? “With performance that far surpasses that of traditional satellite internet, and a global network unbounded by ground infrastructure limitations, Starlink will deliver high speed broadband internet to locations where access has been unreliable, expensive, or completely unavailable.”

RE: No Corona

Dang the Corona brewery is stoping production! Now we have to drink more Tequila, Mezcal and pulque, such is life at the moment. navegator Not funny. Having 2 daughters working on the front lines (nurses), I have to ask the moderator to remove this insensitive comment. What does a brewery discontinuing production have to do with anyone respectfully working on the front lines? Disconnect?

RE: 120 volt cigarette lighter size outlet

Thanks for taking a shot at it, I just found what yo linked as well. I may need a short cord like that when this is all said and done. But I'm hoping to find a 120v outlet that will permanently mount in the center console. The snap in might be where I'll have to go. But I would really like to find a round one that I can just drill a hole to mount. https://i.imgur.com/xwSditJ.jpg?1 height=480 Probably the only way to do it round would be to use a bulb socket on the inside and ‘this screwed in if you do not need a grounded outlet: Adapter

Would that not be an extension cord? Something like this : Cord outlet Or wire it yourself with this: Outlet

RE: How about Adobe Illustrator alternatives for mac

Why not just kick the limited "MAC" to the curb and move to all Windows PC, then you do not have to scrape around with hodgepodge hokey patches and Windows PC software is more readily available to boot? "hodgepodge hokey patches"? You obviously don't know what you're talking about. Funny! pC magazine had an article asking why a MAC ran windows software more reliably than a PC. :B

RE: Camco water filter

If you do not already have a water pitcher for drinking, pass on the Britta and get a Zero Water. The difference is amazing. The Brita usually leaves about 100 ppm and zero water leaves actual zero. If you already have a Brita, check into ordering a replacement filter for it from Zero. We cannot tell the difference between this pitcher water and pure bottled water.

RE: Psssst...wanna see a Wall?

What a colossal waste of money. It's like a padlock that only keeps honest people out. Cost less than the healthcare web site that did not work and invasions have dropped significantly. Thanks for the photos of the beautiful wall.

RE: Looking for solar info UPDATE

We are just looking for a small affordable solar system. This would be used to recharge a GRP 31 deep cycle battery ONLY. We just want it for lights and maybe rechargeable items. What would be good for wattage? 100 watts? 50? Pcm controller? We will use the generator for all the power hogs onboard. Thx In May at 49N sunny all day I measured an AH haul of 56AH with a 130w panel lying flat. That would bring your battery up from 50% SOC However--- 1. You will be using your battery all day too, 2. It is not sunny all day every day 3. It is not May all year 4. An RV has wheels so you will not be at the same latitude all year. So it is a total WAG, but 200w flat might be enough most times, and you do have a generator for recharging via converter if not enough sun at times. You can use a PWM controller with the 200w. An MPPT will only do a little better (maybe!) and will likely cost more. Good answer. We spent 4 days at Lake Havasu and had minimal gen time for microwave. Batteries recharged each day for lights, water pump, furnace fan, and a couple of hours of satellite receiver and television. Batteries were recharged every day.
