RE: Gas Tank Scraping on Driveway

i suggest some "air springs" aka air bag lifts most of them will provide 3" of lift, should be easier to install air lifts, than raising the tank

RE: Harbor Freight 100 Watt Solar Kit

EXAMPLES 7 amps at 12v = 84 watts 0.7 amps at 120v = 84 watts 5 amps at 23v = 105 watts so 5 amps at 14.4v charge = 72 watts charge max

RE: New Meter on order

yes that is possible, external RF interference could change what signal the sensor sends to the box with the measuring circuit and transmitter for the display, these units use the Wi-fi Freq Band

RE: Which air lifts , 1997 F53 Tag axle Bounder

" Well Rodchester" there are no holes in my frame rail where the instructions say there should be, NOT sure if that is a deal breaker But it doubles the amount of holes to be drilled, and complicates the placement alignment issues when mounting and drilling

RE: New Meter on order

no jumps in reading the meter K & I how are you powering the display mine is on all the time it sounds the converter charge current is NOT going thru the sensor, but some parasitic load is being measured where did you place the hall effect sensor ? you might need to move it to a different location in the wiring, how many wires connect to the battery posts, and how many wires are going thru the sensor ( a picture would help) what does the meter display, if you hitch up and start the engine but DON"T move it works in either the Positive line or the negative wire, just flip the sensor the other way IF you change wires do NOT use the battery disconnect switch, when using shore power

RE: Residential Refrigerator

to switch means running a new propane line from somewhere else in the system to that location, you need thru the roof or wall venting for heat from the fridge and an access hatch thru the exterior wall, both for venting fresh air in and access for cleaning etc.. i would stay with the residential fridge

RE: Shore works ATS in and out on Gen power

yes..BUT did you hold your meter on there while the ATS was cutting in out, dropping power ? the voltage will NOT be 120v when the ATS drops out, that is what you want to observe All- ATS- progressive dynamics pd52. 240 amp relay switch is new. I’ve checked at junction box. That’s out of genset where wires from gen meet wires that travel direct to ATS. FROM GENSET I HAVE: 1 green,1 blk, 1red, and 2 wht. Wht are tied to large whit headed towards switch. Black on blk. Grn on copper and red to red. 120 at both red and blk here. Now from ATS I have 120ish at red and 120ish at blk then that’s click of switch showed multimeter drop to 60 then builds to 240 btwn both and switch activate again. Then cuts out - Constant back and forth. No load during this time.

RE: leveler leaking

i had a leaky jack curbside rear i added 'blue devil hydraulic sealer' to the jack reservoir instructions say run equipment for 2 hours i did not play with the jacks for 2 hours i did take 10-15 minutes raising and lowering the rear jacks to circulate fluid we fulltime, in a few days the leaked stopped occasionally if i fully extend/stress that jack, i will need to top off the fluid, sometimes i use pure tranny fluid , some times a 50/50 mix with blue devil, its a top up, so it doesn't affect the system percentage too much blue devil says can be as much a 25% of fluid a google search found it on amazon beats buying a new jack

RE: Which air lifts , 1997 F53 Tag axle Bounder

RE: Which air lifts , 1997 F53 Tag axle Bounder

to my untrained 'eyes', i see NO damage to the rubber springs of the Tag Axle but the leaf springs are definitely flatten out and NOT supporting the load Down loaded the Rite Rite instructions for the RR 2068 ? not sure of the document number anyway according to the instructions, only need to drill (2) holes on each side for the air springs mounts the other needed holes are per-exisiting in the chassis assemble and temporary bolt in using the existing holes, mark and drill pilot holes for the (4) new holes remove the lifts, drill (4) holes to correct sizes mount lifts and route the airlines they say 2-4 hours, I think it will take most of A DAY, but mainly because of drilling the holes, and me triple checking every step too old and wise for " **** the torpedo's full speed ahead " every project takes me longer than it used too, and needs more tools, than it used too i have to get in and under there and see if the existing holes in the drawings, are really there need to raise the rear with the leveling jacks to get a good look at the frame rail

RE: Shore works ATS in and out on Gen power

I don't know about the iota But This sounds like a generator problem Either a loose neutral between generator and the ATS Or a control problem or field brush problem The output voltage is dropping out or fluctuating and the ats is disconnecting

Which air lifts , 1997 F53 Tag axle Bounder

What to install or get installed Air lift bags on the rear Will not be adjusted up and down, No towing But I carry a a scoot full time, I use it when the RV is parked, it is always on the rear carrier when the RV is moving, Rear is starting to sag, and drag of under carriage and gas tank is happening on some station entrance I will pump the pair to level/raise the rear with full tanks Long gas tank right behind tag axle, extends Too Far to the rear, and hangs below frame Far rear curbside is fresh water, far rear drivers side is Onan genset, Holding tanks are in basement approximately under the bed between gas tank and water tank Too much weight behind the axles Educate me, thank you Thinking of the Firestone Ride Rite system

RE: Wireless Battery Voltage Meter

If you have (3) 12v paralleled then the meter MUST be on the main charge/discharge line of all (3) batteries feeding the RV you can not place the sensor on one wire that only charges, the RV load/discharge wire also has to go thru the sensor
