RE: Group 24 Flooded to Group 31 AGM

Fully agree with Boon Docker... nothing in the coach is changing.... you still can only use so much power no matter how big your batteries are...and your battery charger is only capable of charging at whatever its max charge rate is.... so putting in bigger batteries does NOT require any change in wiring. Your shop is trying to scam you .... or they are idiots.

RE: Limp mode in Ford diesel vehicles - how prevalent?

RE: Limp mode in Ford diesel vehicles - how prevalent?

I believe that the Transit only comes with the small 3.5 engines and are not at all like the Super Duty. Yes, the Transit 350 HD is a 3.2L turbo diesel, but the emissions controls are all similar in all diesel engines... with the stupid Limp mode required for all detected emissions failures, be they actual, or just sensor problems.

Limp mode in Ford diesel vehicles - how prevalent?

A number of Ford Transit 350 HD B and C owners have apparently experienced engine issues that cause it to go into Limp mode. I am wondering it is somewhat common issue in the Ford super duty pickups, too.

RE: Sometimes a picture does say many words.....

Not what it looks like. My perception is the power lines are well BEHIND the RV and Kayak.

RE: Roadside assistance

Coach-Net one of the best for the whole package - but they are getting pretty pricey.

RE: Astoria,OR to Florence OR

X2 Pull off at the view spots. We'll be in Florence Mon and have dinner reservations at Waterfront Depot. Oh how I envy you! Since the Delta variant arrived we've been avoiding dining out for awhile. Waterfront Depot is our favorite and unquestionably the best restaurant in Florence. If the original poster stops in Florence, suggest he try it too..... reservations generally required unless you dine outside....

RE: 30 amp plug assistance needed

I suggest you use a 12 gage extension cord, at least, to run your portable AC. P

RE: Border News

Very disappointing! Even though we're vaccinated, and even if we catch Covid the effects will be minimal if at all, this closure continues. A real bummer! Yes, the effects of COVID on vaccinated individuals are usually minimal....BUT YOU CAN STILL TRANSMIT THE VIRUS TO OTHERS! People keep ignoring this fact.... it is why even vaccinated persons should still wear a mask.

RE: Samsung Phone

One little question remains ... do you have any 'data' available now in your plan? Sounds to me like you may not if you can't get anything on the Internet. Need to check with your cellular service provider to find out if you don't know ... telephone service is separate from Internet data ...

RE: Samsung Phone

I have an iPhone, but regardless, you should be able to just bring up Google home page in your web browser and save it to your home screen.... effectively creating a new Google icon. Then just delete the old non-functioning one.

RE: Progressive Industries EMS and Powerline frequency error

To repeat some info - the frequency error occurred at three different RV Parks... all in the eastern Oregon area... I have yet to determine if my DVM measures Frequency.... but I must consider the EMS may have a problem.

RE: Progressive Industries EMS and Powerline frequency error

NRALIFR - the error code was E7 ... high frequency. Not sure if my DVM will measure frequency.... will check and then keep this in mind...

Progressive Industries EMS and Powerline frequency error

Recently while traveling through eastern Oregon and possibly western Idaho we experienced several instances where my Progressive Industries EMS-PT30X would give a line frequency error and not allow power to my RV. Since we really needed power for AC I removed the EMS unit... and all worked well. My Question: has anyone else experienced this issue? Does anyone know of a way I could have bypassed the EMS line frequency error and still allow other protections to continue? I may pose,this question to Progressive Industries later....

RE: Off grid for first time, need some guidance !

I wouldn't think your GRP 24 wet cell battery would last the night if you use a furnace, watch TV, etc. it is not really a 'deep discharge' type battery if it has a cranking specification..... that is a dual purpose starting battery, at least. A true deep discharge RV batttery will not have auto connection posts sticking up nor will it have a cranking amp specification. A deep discharge battery will measure its capacity in Amp Hours..... just my opinion. Your battery may well work for your needs if they are as minimal as you described....

RE: Toilet Tissue...

I would not suggest using just any TP in an RV. Biggest problem with the 'plush' type TP is that is stays wadded in a ball and easily gets lodged in the dump valve while dumping, preventing closure all the way. Trying to force closure of the valve only pushes it further into the valve blade slot. I would surmise any single ply TP is most safe.... and be sure to use plenty of water in every flush.

RE: Highway speeds - Keep your distance!

I wonder about another phemo...phenoma... situation that I experience on lonely western roads.. You are cruising along all by yourself at whatever speed... and in the mirrors another vehicle appears... It catches you after a few km/miles... And then settles in 1 point 5 seconds off your stern and drives there ... Why? My guess - as I sometimes do - he is following you at night because you provide a nice buffer in case some obstruction is in the road ahead...... of course when I do it I leave a large buffer of 5 seconds or more....

I am surprised at their offering a 5 year warranty. Depending on use, charging type, and maintenance, 5 years could well be all one can expect from those batteries .... I do wish you had stated the battery mfg. and the problem you are having now . . . . Bottom line: If you do have a written warranty, you should end up on top of this .. eventually.

RE: How many can they get in that camper?

I would suspect there are tents involved in this trip . . . . .

RE: How do you cancel your Extended Service Plan?

How do you cancel your ESP. I purchased a travel trailer from Camping World about 20 days ago and have decided to cancel the ESP. GAP and wheel warranty. I tried to contact the dealer where I purchased the warranties to receive a refund and so far, have not heard back from them. In my experience, you need to notify the insurance company directly by letter , not email, not phone, but by written letter to be mailed. The procedure to request cancellation should be written out somewhere in that policy contract. Your dealer is out of the picture at this stage. He got his cut from the sale. Now you need deal directly with the insurance company.
