RE: Valve stem extenders for inner wheels (DRW)

Best to just have Borg solid valve stems installed. Extenders leak.

RE: Previous Owner Painted the Gelcoat - What to do?

A thought... if you become a snowbird and travel south, you might inquire about paint job for entire RV just across the Mexican border. I understand you can get excellent paint jobs for just a fraction of the cost in the U.S.

RE: VMax Batteries

We have a bunch of VMax 12v 100 AH AGM batteries in our comm trailer.... have been working well for years. I note today they are $289 on Amazon, yet a good quality Weize 12V 100AH LiFePO4 battery is now $299. I am making the change in my RV soon as weather claars.

RE: yet another door look bites the dust

Hi, Does anyone have a source for a trimark all steel lock? It's a good thing I'm in a class C. Being locked in is not much fun. I wish you had specified what Trimark lock. If its the T507 common to so many class C RVs, like mine, Did your latch bolt break? Its cheap pot metal. There's a guy who sells repair kit, easy to do, with a beautifully crafted stainless steel latch bolt replacement. I can vouch for this.

RE: Connect multiple portable solar panels?

Must also consider the max capabilities of the charge controller on the single panel. It may not be capable of handling more panels.

RE: Roadtrek 170 boiling cabin battery

Geez Why replace the alternator when the problem is with whatever charger/converter the RV uses to charge your battery when on shore power. Since you are still having the overcharge issue with a new battery I would think most likely the problem is with your shore powered charger unit. Find it, check it out and replace if necessary.

RE: Safety: Microwave Fire!

I had heard long ago that it was hard on the microwave 'tube' to operate it without a 'load' for the power so never thought to operate it without some food or drink in it.

RE: Can I charge the house battery with the engine alternator?

12v vs two 6v batteries Just keep in mind that joining two 6v batts will keep the amps the same, where by joining two 12v batts, the amps will double. The above is misleading, and possibly erroneous. The capacity of a quality GC2 Six volt battery is generally around 220AH, where the capacity of a good 12V battery is around 100AH ... so you will end up with slightly more capacity with the heavier duty two 6V batteries anyway.

RE: Can I charge the house battery with the engine alternator?

Most RVs are designed to have the alternator charge the house batteries through a solenoid while the engine is on (...presumably while driving from one campsite to the next). A built in feature of that solenoid is an "emergency start" switch usually mounted on the dash or near the driver side steering column. When working properly, if you push and hold that button you should hear a "click" and the solenoid temporarily connects the house batteries to your chassis battery so that you can use the house batteries to help jump start a dead/weak chassis battery. This is all by design. It is not rare at all for that solenoid to wear out and break. They are cheap and usually fairly easy to replace. Let us know how it goes. -Chris What Chris said, above. Sounds, from your previous posts, that your old RV may have already have that feature. ... boost at least. you could simply change that momentary contact boost switch on the dash to a toggle switch that will stay on when you want it ... thus maintaining your starter battery connected through that solenoid you found to your house batterys. You should check that that solenoid still works ... they can and do fail at times ... but easy to replace.

RE: Battery problem?

What kind and size of batteries? Are they wet cells? If so, had you checked electrolyte levels lately?

RE: Connect Bluetooth Headphones to TV

I use a small unit connected to the Optical output and converts it to Blue Tooth to work with my Hearing Aides. Seems would be very similar to work with Blue Tooth Head Phones. Question for Michelle -- when connected to the optical audio out , does that kill your local TV speaker sound for others in the room?

RE: What happened to LSL Products?

Not sure if this is current! amp-LS-tart Trik-L-Start Not current. Best Converter no longer sells those products. HOWEVER - I believe I have found a suitable close substitute - the Xantrex Echo-Charger.

What happened to LSL Products?

Trying to find the Trik-L-Start and Amp-L-Start product by LSL Products but now seem to be unavailable. Can anyone advise what happened to them and the fine product they sold? Also, if anyone can suggest a close substitute to the Trik-L-Start, it'd be appreciated.

RE: Two questions: fridge OOPS! and battery boost relay

Technically, that relay is called a solenoid. It should likely be silver in color, cylindrical in shape, and have two large terminal posts on opposite sides and a smaller terminal post ( switching control ) in the middle. It should also be providing a path when the engine is running for the alternator to charge your house batteries as well as being a path for the engine battery boost feature.

RE: GMC Sierra EV

Well, one positive note on this vehicle - no one will steal your catalytic converter ! ??

RE: Firearms in RVs in California

on the road in California your firearm must be unloaded and in a locked container... unless you have a California CCW permit. In your campsite, you may treat your firearm as if in your own home.
