RE: Sharing our location/travels with others

I'm pretty sure Google Maps has the means to do what you want.....but don't recall specifics on how to build it.

RE: 10/3 Wire split

Don't understand the problem ... the OP says the copper wire was NOT damaged...just the insulation. ( slight scrape marks on copper is all ). I would just do a better tape job .... and then tape over the entire mess properly. Don't see any need to cut / splice / or pull new wires ....

RE: Heading to Quartzsite, AZ from Sacramento, CA

Or go down 99 to 58 and route yourself that way...

RE: travel during covid

We have canceled our longer trips.... and restricted other travels too. We have taken a few short couple day trips to regional State Parks.....no need to have go into any stores.....carry all our supplies and food and just enjoy the outdoors. Home is so nice that we are quite comfortable staying home most of the time

RE: Battery water falls very slightly in Cell Six?

Let me rephrase - one cell starting to use more water than others was a very early symptom of battery starting to think about going bad...... not to say you don't have another year or so of good life. The fact that the SP of all cells was good and equal indicates nothing to be immediately concerned with.

RE: How do I run propane furnace but not hot water heater

Newbie here. Due to freezing temps, I want to run the furnace on low but with all water drained, but not winterized yet. How do I run the furnace but not the hot water tank? Did you drain the water heater? He stated that in his original post....

RE: Battery water falls very slightly in Cell Six?

One cell using more water was the first sign I had of my wet cells going bad.....

RE: Vetting Breeders

I would suggest starting with the National Breed Club of whatever breed you are looking at rather than the AKC.

RE: How cold is too cold?

Coolmom, I have been doing this for years without any problems. I use a small electric heater on in the RV set to come on around 50-55 degrees F. Never a problem. I might get concerned if temps get down below 25 or so.....but that is rare on the Oregon coast.... and I would just turn the heat inside up higher.....or maybe drain the water system.

RE: two days cold coming, not winterized yet

Hooked up to electricity? Put a small heater inside to keep warm and yes, put 60W or more lightbulbs in your wet bay. Don't forget behind fridge, too, if you have an icemaker being fed by RV water line. We did just fine doing this in one night of zero degrees F.

RE: Battery questions for boondocking

Lots of good recommendations here.....but I want to emphasize one comment....do NOT waste your money on Optima batteries. They are costly and do not have the capacity you need.

RE: 30 amp vs. 50 amp question

Yes. Shore power-->adapter-->ems-->rv Limit your loads to 24 amps if that is possible. If you are lucky enough to have a hybrid inverter/charger, then turn on the load support feature. Not really --- You'll do it this way: shore power pedestal >> eMS >> adapter >> rv cable.

RE: Deep Cycle Battery Suggestions

Much better off with two 6V golf cart batteries. AGM 6V golf cart batteries do exist but they are $$$ (Trojan T105-AGM) and would have to be ordered through a golf cart store or solar power store. I need to double check and see if my two house batteries are 12volt or 6volt. Thanks for the input! Not really a problem going either way. If you get two 6v batteries you just wire them in series.

RE: Deep Cycle Battery Suggestions

If you don't mind checking battery cell electrolyte levels and battery corrosion cleaning then two GC-2 6V batteries would do just fine. Otherwise I'd suggest two 12V AGM batteries like Renogy 12V 100Ah units...

RE: Best RV repair company, roof replacement Oregon

Oregon Motorcoach has a superb reputation, as does Carrier RV services .... both on Airport Road between Eugene and Junction City. I would check these two out before anyone else. I believe the Winnebago facility in Junction City has terminated their service activities recently. Normally I shout stay away from Camping World, but give the high numbers of skilled RV service people in this area I might say the store in Coburg may be OK.

RE: House and Engine Battery -Update 2-Surge? REGEN threat!

My solution - long: My Winnebago Fuse on the Ford Transit 350 HD chassis had this issue. The Ford engine alternator uses a new Ford Smart Charge technology to charge the Ford engine battery (2 AGM batteries) . However we Fuse owners have discovered that when the Winnebago Fuse House batteries are connected to the engine alternator system, the Ford Smart Charge regulator never drops charge down from its high 14.7 Volt output level. What this means is that all batteries are constantly being charged high rate for many hours a day while driving. This is a good way to cook and ruin nice AGM batteries, including the Ford chassis batteries. I resolved this issue by adding a simple switch to in the battery solenoid circuit that disconnects the Ford 12 V system totally from the House battery bank when driving. The Ford Smart Charge system now drops down to the 13.7V level as it should when the chassis batteries are full and the House batteries are kept safe - my 200W solar keep them up just fine. Same principle could be applied if one changed out the House batteries to another type.

RE: RV dump station Fee - pay if only getting fresh water ?

There is a reason they call it a DUMP fee. Covers the cost of waste treatment or hauling off. Should be no charge for fresh water, but as others have said, I'd be real cautious using a dump site's fresh water. I've seen RVers stick the fresh water hose in their septic tubes. I never get water from a dump site.

RE: Thousand Trails Membership

We received a membership with a new trailer purchase and are considering another year. I am considering the purchase of an existing membership. Any info would be helpful. Thanks, Jeff If you use it a lot, are happy with their restrictions and limitations, and are happy with the campgrounds you stay in, then may be worth it. We were not happy so we dropped our 4 year membership.....which Thousand Trails did not make easy. A written notice sent at least 30 days in advance of cancelling membership is required.

RE: Tire Inflation - What RU Using

Viair 88P for me. Tires only require 70PSI and snall RV has limited storage. Viair is small, reliable, and high quality.

RE: Solar charge to chassis battery

I am doing the very thing the OP wants using a Trik-L-Start. Super easy installation and does the job perfectly.
