Nothing to lose. It's for a Ford 8N. Thanks.

Six Volt MH battery in a tractor...

I am having to replace all four of my Interstate GC2-ECL-UTL batteries. Will one of these batteries work on a Ford tractor with a six-volt system? GM

RE: RV Fatality in Oklahoma

Please keep reporting RV accidents, hopefully with photos and/or videos. It's helpful to me, due to the fact that I analyze these accidents for the purpose of trying to learn something that might help me avoid accidents.Absolutely. For instance, on this one I learned if a couple has and argument and gets kicked out of a casino, don't drive on the same road they are driving on. You could be killed when they cross the centerline. That piece of knowledge is going to be so immensely beneficial to me. I'm going to sleep better at night now. Thanks Grey Mountain for the useful knowledge. Pearls before swine. I apologize for holding the gun to your head and forcing you to read this post. I'm done here. GM

RE: RV Fatality in Oklahoma

People die every day on the roadways for a wide variety of reasons; speeding, alcohol, texting, road rage, etc. While tragic, what makes this one so special? Do we need to set up a new forum "road deaths" so everyone can read about all the traffic incidents? *** No one is forcing you to read posts such as this, or any other post. GM Don't be so sure. Maybe a fat and psychopathic wife will trash him within inches of his life if he doesn't read the forum. You never know. It's a crazy world out there! Never thought of that. You may be right. GM

RE: RV Fatality in Oklahoma

The fifth wheel (yes, it was a fith wheel), the pickup and the vehicle that hit them are all in a salvage yard about four miles from my house. I drive by that area almost daily. Sad. But a message to all of us. Nothing is guaranteed. GM

RE: Battery Charging Problem

Could be related to your fridge problem earlier. Did you ever answer Doug's question here? "ALL you have to do is fire the Genset up, open up the rear Access door to the refer and plug in a 120 volt light or appliance to the 120 refer receptacle. IF the Appliance operates, your Transfer is OK. IF the Transfer was a problem 1/2 of your 120 electrical in the RV would be dead. Doug" Did that. No problem at the receptacle. Hope the RV fixit folks can isolate and fix the problem. GM

RE: Battery Charging Problem

One of my problems is that I am not real sure how any of this is supposed to work. Don't think it is a pedestal problem since I've been using the same one for ten or more years. I'll double check the pedestal to make sure. I have two other sources - one more 50 amp and two 30 amp RV pedestals. But I have the same problem when on generator.

RE: Battery Charging Problem

Above 12.2. Each battery showing 13.1 No other problems. GM

RE: Battery Charging Problem

I long ago made a complete wiring diagram for the batteries. Each is color coded and numbered. I disconnect each batter and measured using a hand-held voltometer. Each battery is showing 13.1 or 13.2. Cannot disconnect and wait a week. Taking it in to the RV fixit guy next week. May just turn the problem over to them and let the experts handle it. When it comes to mechanical and electrical things, I'm a very good wood worker. GM

RE: Battery Charging Problem

Pushbutton 25amp breaker. Push to reset. I have checked all the batteries, appear to be ok. I topped off the cells just before our last trip. Had no problem with charging until I got back home. What reading is "normal" for the individual batteries?

RE: RV Fatality in Oklahoma

This was a two-lane US highway. They may have been in a 55mph zone when the accident happened. The pickup would either have still been in the 55 mph zone or just left it for 65; however, he would still be going uphill and most likely would not have reached highway speed. The other vehicle was going downhill and the speed limit apparently made no difference to them anyway. GM

RV Fatality in Oklahoma

A 67-year old Florida man and two local persons were killed in a head-on collision on Hwy 281 north of Anadarko, OK, in SW OK. A man and a woman had been having a domestic argument in a local casino, were kicked out, and left at a high rate of speed in a Dodge Durango. The female driver lost control, went into the ditch on the right, overcorrected into the left lane and collided headon with the Chevy Silverado pickup pulling a fifth wheel (Local news said it was a bumper-pull camper trailer; however, I saw the wreckage - sure lookd like a 5th wheel to me.) The Durango was going downhill; the pickup may have still been in a 55 mph zone and was going uphill. This are is about five miles from my home} GM

Battery Charging Problem

Came home after a short trip, plugged unit into 50amp shore power. Batteries are not charging. Circuit breaker on the Freedom 528 Inverter continues to pop. Did not have this problem when plugged into shore power on my last trip. Also, doesn't appear that my batteries are being charged on my generator, or from the engine. Suggestions? Taking the unit in next week to have the fixit guy look at it, but would appreciate any insight here. Thanks. GM

RE: Refrogerator Problem

"Refrigerator" is a copywrited trademark and can not be used willy-nilly. That's why I compromised with "refrogerator." Anyway, gimmee a break. I'm just a poor Injun tryin' tomake his way in a white man's world, what with a mission school education and a reservation upbringin'. What d'ya expect anyhow. Send me free stuff. Preferabley a new refrig..., ah, a new refrogrator. GM

RE: Refrogerator Problem

RV fixit guy says it may be a transfer switch issue. Taking it in in a few weeks. I think I got metric gremlins in the electrical system last time I went to Canada. GM

Refrogerator Problem

Our Norcold 1200 fridge will not run off propane or generator. Workds fine on shore power. Had this problem last year; RV fixit guy checked it out, said it was working fine. Nopo. Any suggestions? Still considering switching out with a residential fridge. GM

RE: SHOUT OUT To Nebraska Companies

In my initial conversation with Mr. Vargas, I asked for an estimate. He called his go-to glass people, Omaha Glass Pro to make the appointment. I asked about the estimated cost and he said "No charge." He said that Glass Pro gets a lot of business from them, and they had a very good working relationship. GM
