RE: Onan Generator Question

According to the Onan spec sheet, it does have a 5A battery charging circuit. Don't forget that it also draws power to run the control circuitry and ignition, so net output to battery is only a couple amps. I would add an external charger to get the battery back up to full charge and keep it there. Nothing big, maybe a 10A charger.

RE: Directv

I have 2 receivers from DirecTV in my MH. When I get more than about 200 miles from my home, I lose my local stations (under 100). Everything else works fine. You can either call DirecTV to get your service address changed so that you get the locals from where you are located, or just do what I do: Crank up the OTA antenna for the local channels.

RE: Blower Fan on Dutch Star

Okay, well when I turn the switch on, I do not feel nor hear any discernible change in air flow through the 4" foil tube. I checked the fuses under the fridge and they are good. Do you hear the fan working or do you feel extra air? The furnace has to be running for the basement heat fan to work. Apparently it gets its power from the furnace fan switch as there is no 12V on the switch in the wet bay unless the furnace fan is running. If the furnace fan was running and you felt no discernable difference in airflow, check for 12V on the wet bay switch. I have never located a seperate fuse for that fan, think it might be protected by the fuse for the furnace itself. I feel extra air. I do not hear the fan running as the furnace fan is pretty loud.

RE: Blower Fan on Dutch Star

When I run the furnace, I always get some warm air in the basement. When I turn the fan switch on, I et more air in the basement. Have not found the actual fan, but it does work.Guy on Newmar help line told me that's how it works, but could not tell e where the fan is located.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

You might want to consider something like a plastic U channel to put over that edge. That's a pretty sharp bend and I don't think it would take much of a rub by a tree branch or something similar to damage the roof covering.

RE: Big Brother- Tag on your TC?

In Illinois, they use transponder data from IPass users to put the drive times on the overhead signboards. They do not feed Google Maps or INRIX. I'm just waiting for the day that they start issuing speeding tickets through the mail by calculation distance/time using your transponder data.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

While we're waiting for he steel to dry and then the paint to dry (don't know if I can stand the excitement), we can contemplate some fallout from your choice of fabrication technique. Since you had the steel bent instead of roll formed, you have a curve instead of a sharp edge on the pointy part of the angle. That will leave a sort of triangular gap where the roof, wall, and steel all meet. Do you plan on filling that gap with something (M-1 perhaps) or do you plan on just leaving it since there really is almost no way for anything to get in there. I have noticed that you have been obsessive about sealing any cracks or crevices. If you choose not to, at least seal the ends. Would not want it to whistle while you drive down the road.

RE: Refrogerator Problem

Sorry, but that makes no sense. Why would a bad breaker in your inverter keep your fridge from working on propane? The inverter should have nothing to do with your fridge. Your inverter should be in pass thru mode when on shore power or if the generator is running. The inverter may indeed have a bad breaker, but replacing / repairing that will not solve your fridge problems.

RE: Smell and heat from rear wheel wells

Have you slithered under the RV to look? I would suspect something hanging down near the exhaust. Perhaps a piece of road debris? With all the garbage laying on some roads, it's not hard to pick something up.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I kind of liked the RV formerly known as Prince. Is that the Monaco Dynasty, or something I've never heard of? I was referring to the purple RV.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I kind of liked the RV formerly known as Prince. The door looks like a door. Now if ot really was made of wood, that would be something. I think all the schmaltz hanging all over the side of the TT to be a bit much but that is just a matter of personal preference.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Glad to see that you found a local place that can bend your steel. Guess I can stop looking now. Sometime you can't see the forest because all those trees are in the way. Hang in there and don't let the naysayers discourage you.

RE: “I was shocked with just how white it was there,” she said.

Baker said her recent visit to the Outdoor Retailers Show in Denver “shocked” her. “I was shocked with just how white it was there,” she said. Maybe it's just Denver. Went to the RV show in Mobile, Alabama last year and it appeared to be about 50% minority. Or was she talking about the vendors. While the shoppers in Mobile were a pretty even mix, the vendors were all white.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I keep looking around for some place to get your metal angle iron. Found this outfit that does custom roll forming. Johnson Brothers They have a picture on their site that shows a profile exactly like you have drawn. Maybe fill out the RFQ form and see what they come back with. I would probably ask for 8 foot lengths just to save on shipping costs. https://i.imgur.com/WJwlxYLl.jpg "border=0" https://i.imgur.com/m3zZPvb.pngClick For Full-Size Image.

RE: Tow Dolly VS flat tow

When we first started in the MH we towed with a dolly. That lasted about 1 1/2 years and we went to flat tow. Will never go back. Changing cars required buying new base plate. Everything else carried over. BTW Love our Edge.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Hope you would be using a high ply count plywood for your wedge. 13-ply would probably hold up to being cut like that. CDX would not. If you go with the wedge, will you be elimination the drip edge overhang? Or will it become part of the top sheet that you will add? I was going to suggest that you use dimensional lumber for the wedge instead of the plywood, but then I thought of concerns about warpage. Think the ply might be the best option.

RE: Black Water Tank Missing Capacity

Easiest way to make sure is to crawl under the trailer and look at what is marked on the side of the tank. Then you know for sure. I would guess that there is a "downpipe" where the toilet is mounted to the tank that extends a few inches into the tank. When water reaches the bottom of the pipe, you end up with an 8 gallon trapped air bubble.

RE: Can you recommend me a high temperature tape?

Have you thought about Eternabond? It's white, lasts just about forever, and grips like crazy. You would need to use a very thin bead of Dicor along each edge to hide the thin line of whatever the glue is that Eternabond uses. Only place it does not meet your criteria is it is not breathable. But neither is aluminum tape or Gorilla tape.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

It seems like you have been avoiding addressing the angle iron that will join the roof to the sides. Have you found someone to fabricate it yet? I found a place where you could order it online, but the minimum order size is 10 tons. Don't think you need that much.
