RE: Thor Wanderer (2000) Battery Location

5th wheel or TT. If you post in the right section you are much more likely to get pertinent information.

RE: Walmart has new auto battery maker

So you now have a 750CCA battery paired with a 850CCA battery? Sure sounds like a problem to me. Maybe you can get away with it in AZ. but I sure wouldn't want to try it anyplace that gets cold.

RE: Do you use EKON OX BLOX Trailer Jack Blocks

They are heavy, expensive, and take up a lot of room in storage. It also appears that only the smallest jack feet will fit between the tabs. There are lots of other options that work fine.

RE: Automatic Transfer Switch

The ATS has two inputs normally marked LINE and GENERATOR Two types of ATS One is a relay race (Whatever is first is only) But I doubt that's how yours works... More likely GENERATOR controls it. If there is power on the GENERATOR input. than that is used. NOTE: DO NOT SWITCH UNDER LOAD Turn off all loads before plugging in or turn off main breaker so there is no 120 volt load when you plug in. I have to disagree. Most likely if there is power on the line then it is used. When line power is not there then it will switch to the Gen position. There should be instructions with the switch that will tell you how it works.

RE: Multimeter recommendation?

How much amperage does it measure? Most low to mid priced meters will only measure small amounts of amps so that function is largely useless. As noted above just buy something cheap as it will do more than most of us need.

RE: Damaged 5er hitch by backing too hard

It sounds like the OP wasn't using a good set of chocks. Always leave your chocks in until you have hooked up.

RE: Door Switch?

"Body Control Module" A number of settings are available usually from the dash or buttons on the radio. Every vehicle is different so you will need to check your manual to find the correct way for yours.

RE: Troubleshooting Propane Problem

I would drain it and reinstall with new tape. They are not common in RV's but there are posts on here complaining about propane not getting to an appliance and a black sticky substance in the line.

RE: Trailer Valet?

It's all a matter of physics. You are trying to move the pin which is about 4 ft. in the air. You need a large base and/or a lot of weight or it tips over instead of moving the trailer.

RE: 1999 Kustom Koach kw252 operators manual

RV's rarely have any useful manuals. What you do get is usually a collection of manuals from the various components that the manufacture included. With a 22 year old unit probably some of the components have been replaced so even the original collection of manuals would only be a little help. What you need to do is get the make and model numbers off everything and go on line to the component manufactures web sites and get the manuals that you need.

RE: GM 'o7classic LBZ dsl 6 spd to '21 L5P dsl 10 spd report

How do the bed rail heights compare? I looks like the new trucks are enough taller that it will give me a problem with my 05 trailer.

RE: Hot water in new 5er Montana

Does she know enough about the unit to make sure the water heater is not in bypass mode?

RE: uneven tire wear

It could be a bent axle. If it is bent so that there is a lot of toe it can wear evenly across the tire. Put a strait edge on the tire and see if it is parallel with the one in front of it. Can you explain what you mean? see if the second tire is askance from the first? It is hard to explain with just words but I haven't figured out how to add a drawing so I will give it a try. If you look at the tires on an axle from above and they are closer together at the front than the rear that is toe in. If they are closer at the rear that is toe out. In most situations there is a very little toe in. If there is too much toe the tire is dragging down the road which will wear it out sooner than it should. By placing a strait edge along each tire it will show if there is a large difference in toe. If that is the case you need to take it to a trailer service center where they can correct the problem.

RE: Looking for end all be all air pump

If you have battery powered tools than you can probably find a air compressor from the same brand that will work. I am using 20 V DeWalt tools and they have a compressor that has both a high volume as well as high pressure pump. A bit pricey but works great and has 100% duty cycle. I have only used it up to 80 psi but I know it is rated substantially higher.

RE: GFI Breaker

5 appliances on a circuit will not trip the GFCI they will trip the breaker if the load is too much. The breaker labeled GFI is supplying the GFCI. Did you check the outside outlet for GFCI? In many cases that one supplies some of the other circuits.

RE: Mini Swamp Cooler (Arctic Air) - Legit?

In general swamp coolers work well in arid climates, but don't work at all in humid climates. I think this is not understood by many people which is you get such varied opinion from people. I also think that the sellers of these type of system should do a better job of pointing out where they will and won't work. If you read most of the advertisements they are always great.

RE: 2012 Arctic Fox 990S

If you think that there is a shop manual that would be any kind of help you are dreaming. What you need is a manual for the monitor panel. If you can find a name and number you can usually find something on the internet. That being said if nothing including the battery level is working then I would think that it is a lack of 12 volts to the panel. The water pump would be a separate 12 volt than the monitor panel. I would look for a blown fuse.

RE: 3 axle break controller issues

You don't say how the brakes are wired to the second trailer so it is hard to know what is wrong but I think the problem is in the wiring between the two. I can't think of any way that type of setup would work even if the controller would supply juice. There is no way that you could adjust a controller to supply the different amount of voltage that would give each set of brakes an appropriate amount of voltage. One would always give more brakes than the other. If you were to adjust it so that the 5er brakes give a decent amount of stopping power you would lock up the atv trailer or vice-versa.

RE: Propane experts

It is also a regulator, it reduces the pressure to about 10 psi. It is a safety item so that there is not full tank pressure in the line going across the unit. It has failed and needs to be replaced.
