RE: bypass switch just inside door for house batteries

thanks for your unexpected offer. I probably couldn't call until later Sunday due to my wife's med problems. I will test the battery charge in the am to see if any charge with the new cable. don't know what your Sunday schedule is and allowing for time zone difference would I text to see if you are available to talk. thanks very much! chuckYes text me. Two hours difference. I’ll be in church this morning.

RE: Ryobi 2300 generator keeps overloading

Your converter will draw a lot at the beginning because it’s trying to charge your batteries. The TV may be on an inverter circuit that you have shut off.

RE: Installing a reverse switch in a Fantastic-Fan

It might work OK either way. Fan blades are designed to be there in one direction. Might try just reversing the wires and see what happens. See how well it moves air in the other direction.

RE: Need advice on accessing engine - 2005 Horizon 40AD

Mine has screws in the carpeted panel in front of the closet which are extremely hard to find.

RE: Meter

Probably not too abnormal. Keep the RPMs up very high when you’re going up a steep hill also if your radiators a bit dirty it can cause an increase in temperature. If the engine coolant hasn’t been changed in the last 3 to 5 years that can aggravate the situation.Mine is done the same thing on steep hills. The important thing is to keep the engine RPM up high very high to keep the water circulating good.

RE: Question on Hydraulic Fluid

For the slides a clear hydraulic fluid would be best in case it leaked inside the rig before the landing gear should not make much difference. Any good loyal label as hydraulic Would be fine.

RE: Help getting fridge to run while underway

My fridge automatically switches to Propane when I am not on shore power. It also runs on propane when my big engine is running. Don’t exactly know what yours is supposed to do but I suspect that the operation should be similar. Most RVs that I know of operate that way like mine. If you call me I will help you over the phone to troubleshoot.

RE: Magnum inverter/battery issue

System does not have to be reset after replacing the batteries. I need to get a meter or an electrical guy to help you troubleshoot the charger part of the inverter. I have the same magnum 2000 inverter charger but I do not know the effect without the temperature sensor. I have to go back and re-read your post what did you replace the house batteries after this incident or before?If you have a meter or someone with a meter I can help you troubleshoot over the phone. Please call me if you have any questions. I am more than happy to help and I am a professional electrical/electronic troubleshooter.

RE: Electrical issue

Unless otherwise defined a normal 30 amp household connection is 220 V like for a dryer. The electrician has to be told that this 30 amp outlet Is for an RV and only 120 V. Not the electricians fault. The converter probably is definitely fried. You might as well plan I’m replacing it. And any other 120 V appliance that happened be on at the same time.

RE: Time to replace batteries??

Absolutely time to replace. Hands-down. I don’t even give it a second thought. My motorhome is 17 years old and I have replaced the house batteries four times. In fact all of the batteries.If you want good reliable service do it.

RE: Seeking refrigerator tips... in AZ and heat is hampering...

Swamp coolers work very well. I have a portable one inside my motorhome to help with the air conditioners. Have to fill it with water almost every day. It helps a lot.

RE: Navion 24 trips GFCIs

Connect an ohmmeter between ground and neutral on the incoming power at the main power distribution panel. It should be open. If not start disconnecting things until it does become open. Somewhere there is some continuity between the ground and the neutral. What transpired just prior to the GFCI tripping? What is there Some particular incident or has it always been this way?

RE: Inverter Question

Probably the way it is wired. I certainly would not lose any sleep over it. I never tested mine that way.
