RE: Battery Disconnect Switch ??

Make sure the connections on the relay solenoid are clean. The solenoids are not expensive, i would buy a new one and try it. Its a common enough fix in these systems, if that doesn't help, keep it as a spare. Its a good part to have on hand. I'm presuming that the relay solenoid, you mentioned, is located in the battery compartment under the step to the right with the cable connections. Had a SC moment ... Maybe this might help, and I should of mentioned this before but with the generator running the battery connect switch will activate. However the DC/Coach power does not activate otherwise. Will check this out further ... Thanks for the suggestion. is this a new issue? otherwise sounds like the solenoid switch is wired to the wrong side of the solenoid, sounds like its getting power from the converter side, when it should be powered by the battery side.

RE: Battery Disconnect Switch ??

if this is the unit im thinking of, it has a fuse itself on the solenoid itself, has that been checked and or does the led glow on the disconnect switch?

RE: Lithium cost keep dropping!

I wish I knew how to judge the quality of those batteries.Price is usually a good indicator. no its not, Will (youtuber who loves this stuff) got shafted on a set of batteries that were 30% more, and they were identical

RE: Windows 11 available on October 5

you guys are hilarious i built a computer back 2010, it was able to run windows 10 without issue, not sure how long you expect them to support a operating system, no one is forced to upgrade. They are a business, go to mac or linux if your not happy.

RE: Enhancing RV security

people are hilarious about the dogs. there use to be a show on discovery where they broke into your house in exchange for a free security system, first dogs are different when the owners aren't home, and 9 out of 10 times, the guy threw a steak at the dog, and the dog became his best friend, not once did the dog even slow the guy down, let alone stop him, might want to watch the show, might be a bit surprised.

RE: Geocel Pro Flex Failed.

i removed this.. and tried to use geocel to replace it. I feel if it dried for maybe a month it would have held Clicky has this not shrunk for anyone? both non sliding windows this has failed, dried up and shrunk greatly, I find it hard to believe no one has replaced this before.

RE: Geocel Pro Flex Failed.

Wrong application for that caulk. It doesn't cure for a long time in an enclosed space, that is why it isn't hardened while still in the tube. no caulk is hard while inside the tube, otherwise you wouldn't get it out. then what exactly are people using this for? i read windows everywhere. SEALING the window frame to the sidewall. I assume from your post you pulled the actual glass insert and then attempted to install with the Geocel. Doug i removed the outside weather strip that had failed.and filled the gap. i have found some molding that will work, but it's over 5 dollars a foot, its going to cost me close to 300 to replace 2 window seals. Doug do you have a link to the sealed window(non sliding ) that will work that may be cheaper, or is it really 5 bucks a foot?

Geocel Pro Flex Failed.

So first time using this stuff, removed all the moldings from a large window 4x4, and resealed it using 2 tubes of this stuff, put it on quite thick to fill the channels. 9 days later i went camping, when i pulled into the campsite, the rear window was hanging against the ladder, ripped clean out of the frame. all the geocel, was soft, like wet bubble gum, i could rip it clean off with my hands. does this stuff not harden up at all? i am going to have to go back to the molding insert i guess, at a ridiculous markup, but it beats hot gluing it back in to get it home. so the question.. how hard does geocel get, as i bought 3 more tubes to do another window, but now i'm scared to use it.

RE: Westinghouse i4500 Generator

Gdetrailer- Not going to defend Westinghouse in depth, but their <3% THD is plenty good. AND I had the same behavior from a Yamaha 2000iS which I would consider a “high quality” generator (from previous thread). Additionally I know someone with same 5er and ACs (without Magnum) that can run not just one of the ACs with their Westinghouse i4500 but BOTH ACs as long as everything is off. Bottom line, at this point I’m convinced there is something in my particular Magnum 3012 that doesn’t play well with genny s. Just spent another 30min with Magnum support, and they’re going to research and call back again tomorrow. The big question in my mind at this point is this anomalous behavior from my inverter? (Tech and literature suggest probably/yes) Or is this inherent in the Magnum design; in which case I probably will just add soft starts, but should have chosen Victron, but too late now. maybe i missed it, does it do the same thing on grid power if you ramp it lower?

RE: Awning replacement fabric adventure...oy

how much is the material? I have a feeling I will need new material as well.Depends on the type of material, and how much you will need. Our awning material from ShadePro was $199 for the vinyl material for our 20 foot awning. Very happy with it. wow for once i overshot the price. I thought this stuff was 1k for some reason.

RE: Replace Ladder stand off nut

Not sure which one of those you're concerned about. The Tiffin ladders are backed up by a molded in steel sheet behind the fiberglass, so removing those screws is fine as long as you don't "ham hand" them going back in. Don't power drive. A line in your signature with your rig info (brand, model, year) helps responders tailor their comments to your rig. its a 2000 chateau sport, but is that the procedure the entire ladder has to come off? there is 0 video's or docs on the replacement procedure

Replace Ladder stand off nut

has anyone replaced these? over half of mine are rusted out. I am trying to think of a way to replace all of them without removing the screws in the fiberglass, but I am assuming this is not going to be possible.. link of what i bought

RE: Battery Isolator - Parasitic Current

Got a reply back from the seller of the $85 KeyLine Battery Isolator about its parasitic current. Their reply: "Yes, it is always monitoring and takes .02 Amps to do so." 20ma is more than acceptable for our application. FWIW, there's a number of battery isolators on Amazon that look eerily similar to the KeyLine, have the same dimensions (2.6 x 2.6 x 2), voltage cut out/in (12.8v/13.3v) and amperage specs (140a) as the KeyLine, but cost significantly less (one was only $27). add a toggle switch on the ground and you will get it down to 0. Be aware you won't get emergency start from this,

RE: Dicor lap sealant or Eternabond tape for new roof vent

can dicor be placed over old dicor, or does it all have to be removed to work?
