RE: Help with Dometic Digital Thermostat

Is that the little 3" square 'single zone' Controls one heater one A/C unit My uncle has that in his new class B, (traded off his Thor Serrano) Seems to be a troublesome design, and it has a slow response Try changing mode to heat , run the temp up to something like 80 or 90(for testing) Then set to ON do not set to auto Then wait , could take two minutes or more to come on There was another thread few days ago, somebody wanted to replace it Options are limited , it's a proprietary digital system I saw a schematic posted someplace of the control box wiring Maybe it was from Chris

RE: manual slide retraction

its not made to be moved its possible it does not have a mechanism for retracting it could be pure Manual Labor, a crew of men pull it out into setup position when it is delivered suggest you contact a Mobile home (mfg housing) delivery moving service and see what they know about it you got any pictures, inside and outside IIRC those park models had 'Tip Outs' not slide outs could be the whole thing tips up and back into the TT NOT a slide it would be towed to the site with the extra room inside then it would be tipped aka unfold on the foundation blocks that hold it up, the carpet rolled out and details added

RE: New Batteries

The batteries provide control power for the fridge, thermostats , water pump, lights The fridge will not work while traveling, if there are no batteries Your converter charges the batteries, and supplies power for the 12v system, powering lights water pump, while keeping the batteries charged

RE: NAPA Commercial 12v Battery ( Amp Hour? )

Jim If you are going to dry camp boondock then plan on replacing those batteries and start budgeting for it You will be ok 'right now' for the occasional overnight stop But not for extended no hookup You can save your money while you wear these out,

RE: Hands on Experience with Lithium batteries

so your total capacity is 420 amp hrs And the Lithium it's only used for the heater and MW via inverter Even with a 50% cycle on the blower you only use about 40>50 amp hrs for the heater, leaving plenty for the MW ALL other house duties is on the GC Is that correct ? And you store all winter, so you are not really cold weather campers So heater blower use is even less than my calculations

Call the Verizon number 888-294-6804 and follow the prompts." you will need the card PIN # your account number the device ph# have them in front of you before you make the call the acct # and ph# were on the paper work you got with the mi-fi i think the ph# is the account # mine is expired and i have to get it re-activated thru somebody or buy another one do not let it expire, better to spend an extra $5, by being early than to wait and be late i slipped up and now it will cost me more

RE: AGM vs Flooded Bulk Times

Niner my AGMs are high output AGMs, they won't last 10yrs but if they make 5yrs like my last set, I will more than happy , with money well spent batteries in an RV are like engine oil, a job to do , but in the end ,, a consumable product with a finite life, i can budget that use, just like fuel its those d-a-m-n expensive diesel engine problems, that i hate the most

RE: Hands on Experience with Lithium batteries

200 amp hrs would not be enough for, even if you can use all 200 120 - 150 is NOT uncommon use for us there would be NO excess left over for another day or night use we have 675 ampHrs and after yesterdays rain, and some bad gas for the generator little run time, we were at 488 ampHrs aka 69.1 percent soc this morning down 187 ampHrs
