RE: Predator 3500 - surge capability while in eco mode?

2000w surge, 1600w run Verus 3500 surge , 3000 , almost double the power in either surge or run about 80% power increase

RE: Cellphone boosters

no signal OR too weak to work boosters .. boost a weak signal a booster with a directional "YAGI" antenna Might help you get a signal and boost it but NO guarantees the only way is to try it

RE: Wiring neutral/ground when splitting panel for MultiPlus?

If this has a 50 amp internal RV transfer switch Just install it correctly Both sides get either inverter or shore power your Idea Only one leg feeding inverter and then one side of breaker panel and one leg direct to panel Doesn't make sense to me , it might even be against NEC Unplug shore cord, inverter is on, stick hand in panel get shocked any way Sounds like trouble too Me

RE: RVs and California's Planned Power Outages

" So historic building which equates to old, and flooding in just the past few years. Doesn't add up that the historic buildings were the problem but rather what ever was built or changed in the last flood" If that is the same news story I saw on TV this past year That was unprecedented flooding that had never happened on that scale in over a hundred years Lots of things change in a hundred years Concrete and pavement where it never was, blocked Creeks, less trees or maybe more houses and less crops Possibly even Historic buildings that did not exist the last time this occurred

RE: run problem with Onan Marquis 5000 BGM

thanks for the info another thing to check i have purchased a used champion 2000i generator and using that to power the RVs on board 75amp powermax converter, MW etc.. it won't the A/C compressor, but it will run the blowers and move air around the compressor surge is just too much for it, with these old A/C units

RE: How to tell if fuel pumps are running by current draw?

current in the motor will drop, ONLY if the hot pump has an open circuit a hot pump 'Stall' with out open circuit, will Increase current drain and the pump motor will get hotter unless it has an in motor temp over load AKA 'clik switch' the ampmeter is the right idea but better yet is to insulate the fuel lines, especially that big 'tin can' fuel filter i'm ordering some 'Hot starter' shield wrap to insulate my fuel filter and external fuel pump

RE: RVs and California's Planned Power Outages

Learning more about this every day IT would be best to properly trim trees and maintain lines. Or bury the lines But when PG&E sends out tree trimmers residents send lawyers "THey are ruining our trees" and now that they are turning off power "They are spoiling our food" will be the lawyer's claim.. Sadly I suspect the residents will pitch a complaint if they bury the lines too.. but .. Well.. Part of what you say is true Although I don't think Any Utility in the this Nation Buries 100,000 volt grid transmission lines in open country And this is what is being discussed These are the lines being whipped back and forth and snapping, and falling to the ground, sparking fires

RE: RVs and California's Planned Power Outages

I don't live in the central valley and I don't live in the mojave Or the inland empire, etc But I can't remember anytime there w was five days non stop high winds I think they are stating the worst possible case, Instead of the most likely disruption Very good idea to keep the RV ready

RE: 1996 Damon Intruder 460 engine Issue Solved!!

That's what we do here, help each other, I bought the Inova version It displayed real code numbers on an LCD display and saved them in memory My problem turned out to be a failing fuel pump in the gas tank I installed an external full pump in the main fuel line, at the fuel filter on the driver's side of the frame ,, that was in June ,,, But before I found the problem, I replaced the icm and the fuel pressure regulator ! It took me several months, in many cases the code number has several possible causes, and each one has to be checked and found to not be the reason for the error code, Once I was convinced it was in fact, the worst possiblity, I had to figure a solution that did not require, having someone drop the gas tank and replace the pump,

RE: Generator pros and cons

I think it's been said that the qualifying distance for advertising and legal disclaimer use , is a test distance of 21 ft. AKA 7 meters So that db sound value can be compared, because they are all supposedly taken at the same distance Again flat open surface grass, packed Earth, concrete will all change The real measured value, and the perceived loudness The tone of the sound also changes the perceived value to the human ear A harsh clanking metal sound will be perceived as louder than it really is

RE: Emergency roadside assistance

I have progressive insurance and road service I also have AAA And Good Sam emg roadside assistance Progressive did two tows of our Safari, back to back in 2012, Saturday to an RV dealer Who could not do the repair when they opened on Monday Then on Tuesday into Flagstaff on a flat bed trailer tow, to AZ Diesel, who did rebuilt the engine I have used all three of my services at different times Very pleased with progressive emg service I think really depends on who is the tow contractor where you happen to break down Rather than the brand name of the service seller

RE: run problem with Onan Marquis 5000 BGM

Was not just a single thunk It. Was the same sound every time it turned over, every rotation I'll charge the batteries and try again

RE: run problem with Onan Marquis 5000 BGM

thanks for the drawing i would rather Like get to the other end of the wiring at the control board draining the oil out of the NON-working generator so i can take the face panel apart to get at the switch wiring seems to me as the difficult way to do this like the putting the cart in front of the donkey update: tried again to run the genny after several trys at starting it using the switch on the Onan, it ran for about 20 seconds, then quit. now when i push the switch, there is 'thunk' sound as it turns over this does NOT bode well
