RE: Voice Controlled Travel Trailer

I want it to back itself into the camp site and do all the hookups.

RE: Mice and soap

Mice ate half a can of toilet treatment, bet they don't stink now!

RE: let there be light (from darkness)

See how it works. Cooler to electric

RE: Rear view cameras - wired or wireless?

Have had nothing but problems with wired RVS system. Have 4 cameras on my trailer. First problem was a loud hum from the audio on the rear camera. They replaced the monitor after lots of troubleshooting with them on the phone. The new one did the same thing, gave up on the audio. Next problem was the rear camera got moisture in it, sealing the hole for the microphone seems to have fixed that. Next big problem was that the monitor got hot on the dash and would cut out. This was a big problem. I fixed this by putting a fan on the back of the monitor. Have used it for about 1 year now with no more problems. Would not buy their system again.

Some things you should not do! Don't do these things!

RE: about perfect for a 30 amp RV!

Lynnmor wrote: How can one get 3600 watts of 120 volt power thru a 30 amp breaker operating at 100 volts? Obviously you can't! 3000 watts is it at 100 volts. The autoformer will increase the voltage within certain limits, but can not draw more than the 30 amp breaker will alow. Up until the 30 amps it can boost the voltage. There are other limits as well. Is all that it does is use relays to change taps on an autotransformer at defined input voltages. I don't know how many steps it has, have not read the spec sheet, I think only one or two.

RE: about perfect for a 30 amp RV!

Lynnmor wrote "Those two words mean exactly the same thing. A transformer does not have the ability to automatically correct voltage." I wrote "Most of you are thinking of a so-called autoformer that automatically changes output voltage as the input voltage changes." I said so-called because on the forum most think of a autoformer as a Hughes or Frank's autoformer. From Hughes: Unlike a boost transformer, the ‘sense circuit’ in the Autoformer will adjust the output based on the load demand. Hughes Autoformer

RE: about perfect for a 30 amp RV!

CA Traveler read the specs! This is just a transformer that can be hard wired for a 7 Volt boost or buck. It does not change the output voltage as the input voltage changes. It is wired as an autotranformer. Most of you are thinking of a so-called autoformer that automatically changes output voltage as the input voltage changes. An autotransformer and an autoformer are not the same thing.

What good is it? What would you use it for?

RE: Driving your RV alone

My wife sits in the truck until everything is hooked up and the air conditioner is running. The same as being alone while backing in. It's better than her backing me into a tree!

RE: Multiple Batteries in Parallel

BFL13 runs well thought out test. He keeps running test until his results make sense. I would believe his results over most of the experts on this forum.

RE: Tired of antenna handle breaking

Had the handle come off. Got tiered of that happening. Drilled and tapped another set screw hole so the two set screws tighten against themselves. No problems now.

RE: Generator sizing issues?

wa8xym "IT ALSO ADDS A VERY SMALL LOAD yes. a cord even with nothing plugged in presents a very tiny load to the generator." Please explain, I don't understand this. (Small capacitive load? Small reflection from an open circuit depending on cord length?)
