RE: Traveling with Propane on

One last question, at home do you start off with the fridge on electric and then switch to propane when you leave ? Or just start off with the propane at home before you leave? Thank you I always have mine on auto when at home and plugged in which has it running on electric,then when I leave it switches to propane and I keep it on for the trip. If yours doesn't have that feature I would start on electric then switch to propane,thus saving propane for later.

RE: Used RV prices.

Hello, We just bought a used 22GQ. Can't seem to find out what the Q means? We see several G with other letters, but not finding what Q stands for. Do you know? Thank you Now my WAG is that it stands for Queen Bed,in the class C world that is what it means. Such as my Rig,26Q meaning a Queen bed.:B

RE: Batteries charging with motor running

When I had this happen to me on my RV,the alternator was not charging the house batteries,I found that the CONTINUOUS DUTY SOLENOID had failed. When you start your RV the voltage should go up to 14.4 or so then within a few seconds the solenoid will click and you will get power to the house batteries.If you can find it it is easy to check with a simple volt meter. The "battery isolator relay" (which is sometimes also used as an "emergency start relay) is a VERY common failure point. Often, you don't even notice that it is no longer passing any charging current from your chassis battery to the house batteries while driving, because your house battery charger still recharges the house batteries after you arrive at your destination. If it's still working properly, you will hear it "thunk" as it activates when the ignition switch is turned on, and you will measure almost exactly the same DC voltage on both of its large connection studs while the motorhome engine is running. No "thunk" = relay coil is burned out, or isn't receiving any voltage "Thunks", but big difference in voltages at its studs = Electrical contacts inside it are burned or corroded

RE: Black Tank Odors

As others have said, I would check and replace the air admittance valves located near your sinks,they are cheap and can be found at most big box stores like Home Depot and Lowes as well as smaller hardware stores. If they fail they will let the smell from the grey tanks in and believe me they can smell just as bad as the black tank if not worse. Changed mine out and the smell was gone! They are used to keep 'P' traps on sinks from getting sucked dry when draining grey tanks. They are downstream of sink 'P' traps on a short stub pipe. http://mobilehomeliving.org/wp-content/uploads/check-vent.jpg

RE: 30A Surge Protector Recommendations

I have to shut mine off when we boondock for four wheeling trips. The generator trips the unit for "open ground". I'm normally only using the trailer for sleeping....with a space heater for heat. Maybe a bit of t.v. as I nod off. So I figure nothing important will get fried. There is a way around that, so you don't have to bypass the EMS,just make or BUY a grounding plug for your generator. This Thread may be of help to you if you are interested in doing it.

RE: 30A Surge Protector Recommendations

I put the hard wired Progressive Industries HWC-30 in my TT. I cheaped out and didn’t get the remote display. Mistake. Only problem is it does it’s job well. No ground, inverted polarity on the mains, NO POWER passed. No workarounds. Had low voltage at one place, it kept shutting off power. I suggest having a bypassable plug so you can get power in those odd cases IF you determine the risk is worth it. This is one very good reason to have the remote display if you want to bypass the EMS and restore power and take the risk. https://i.imgur.com/pQ6PG2dl.jpg width=240

RE: 30A Surge Protector Recommendations

The portable units such as the EMS-PT30X(50X) are not considered by Progressive to be field serviceable, only the hard wire series (which I own) is field serviceable - open a portable version and you'll instantly void the warranty. That's why the company insists any portable unit be returned for repair or replacement whereas with a hard wire version they will mail you the parts required to fix it yourself. Which I have done.

RE: 30A Surge Protector Recommendations

On my Class C I went for the hard wired EMS-HW30C for the best protection. There will be others along soon with many differing views so until then This Chart may be helpful when deciding what is best for you.
