RE: Tow vehicle in the shop

Just get Coach net and they will take great care of you. We broke down in NY state with our 40 footer. The took it to a cummins dealer that had electric hook ups. As mentioned, they will take care of your 5th wheel and truck.

RE: Pulling more than 50 amps ?

Drawing more than 50 amps on EITHER leg- tripped breakerS. They are duplex/pinned together. No idea why this topic gets so much attention. BASIC MATH. Not always pinned together. That can really (trip) your mind when you find one leg of the 50 amp missing and the post has one of the 50 amp breakers tripped. Electronic Technicians, Electricians, are like artists. Very Very temperamental. You can't get two to agree on how to solder on a connector. :S I taught many techs over the years as well as owning my own electronic service business. It is amazing how long a discussion like this last. I'm sorry that people get their feathers ruffled easily. There is some amazing talent here on this thread alone. I'm not indicating that the quoted person here is ruffled. I just happened to digress on my point about the breakers not always being tied together.

RE: Pulling more than 50 amps ?

So if they "draw more than 50 amps", why the H wouldn't the breaker pop???? Inquiring minds want to know. 50 amp breaker on each leg, one can pop if they are not ganged up or whatever term an electrician wants to use. And you will have one 50 amp leg with strange things going on inside the rv. (stuff not working).

RE: Super Noisy A/C

Check these out. I built my own silencers and ran them for several years. These have nice filters and look even better than mine. Pricey but sure are well thought out and built.

RE: DirecTV HD satellite reception

I suspect you are too used to the old sd setup. You could get quite sloppy and manage to pick up the signal. That darn HD dish can be a bear. Absolutely level to start or just give up. It is also easy to misread the little tick marks and be way off. The pointing is so sensitive that just putting your finger on the reflector can make the signal go in and out. It doesn't help they don't have the alignment signal any more. Or maybe it is back. So I use a cheap IP camera and point it onto the tv screen. You have to move the dish very slowly. The right to left turning is far less critical than the up down. Skew is not so difficult. Use a good dish pointer app to be sure there are no twigs in the way. Not one leaf or twig.

RE: Parks around Lincoln CA.

https://www.rvonthego.com/california/lake-minden-rv-resort/ Not likely any 50 amp but there is a lot of shade so you can make it on 30 amp. Close off any areas you are not in. Cover windows etc. There are few decent parks in the area. The one posted is not as pretty as the picture but the folks are nice and the spots are decent enough. If Kalifornia was not so strict one could probably make a fortune building a nice resort near Sacramento.

RE: Too Much A Novice To Ask This On Electronics forum

Don't feel bad. I was and am still a blue tooth novice. I have one on a bedroom tv for night time. I use blue tooth from my phone to my trucks radio or my RV's radio. With the blue tooth "pairing" of the devices I can listen to talk radio and have my Waze App going at the same time. The two audios pass wirelessly to the radio and are both coming out of my radio speakers. As for wireless speakers. My grandson has a set and they work quite well. As suggested, wires are always better and easier to deal with for reliability. The more I play with blue tooth the better I like it. If you are some place and expecting a call you can have a blue tooth ear piece and the phone in your holder or pocket. Often there is a button right on the earpiece to answer the call. As the owner of three cell phone stores at one time it took me a long time to become acquainted with blue tooth. The name just belies what it does. Blue tooth headphones can be had for less than $20.

RE: Onan 8000 Generator

Common complaint and as mentioned there are plugs along the outside that come apart and can often simply be exercised and lubed. WD40 works well. Some have had to bypass the plug as mentioned too. Do more research and you can find the pinouts and apply your own ground to see if it is internal to the generator or just the plug. Some day I will build and sell a simple plug in test switch. Not today though, IF it turns out it is internal to the generator you can parallel the switch on the generator itself.

RE: 50 amp shore power issue

Sure sounds like one leg of the 50 amp is not there or your plug or somewhere back from there is open. Such as a breaker on your own AC panel. Cavie has it nailed. You need a voltmeter. Everyone that owns an RV should learn how to use a voltmeter with confidence. They really are quite simple, but very confusing with all those weird symbols. I told my brother to take pictures of his as I was teaching him. He did not nor did he mark his voltmeter to remember what position to put it on. I will be putting on a class again for him and he will take pictures.

RE: Coach battery not charging

Sound like you have two problems but if you have done some maintenance it could be the same wire dropped while doing so. This happens about every three days on these forums so as mentioned, let us know what you have done to the rv in the last week or two. A reversed battery will cause all kinds of havoc. You cannot rely on wire colors either if you happen to do any basic home wiring.

RE: Help: DC Power cuts out under load

You need to install that new breaker now, not after a fire! Sorry to be so intense. A 12 volt battery has massive potential to turn a wire into an incredible heating element. May as well take the battery out of the smoke detector too. Ok, nuff said. Hope you take this in the spirit it is given.

RE: Help: DC Power cuts out under load

Since the refer runs on shoreline (on battery position ??), that tells me the refer elements are fine. That clicking is most likely the CB resetting. Circuit breakers go wonky and may just need to be replaced. The rating, If on the silver type as shown in pictures above, should be stamped on the side of it. Just wish you could get a schematic. It amazes me how difficult they make it to find one.

RE: Help: DC Power cuts out under load

I think the factory is dead on. Find the little (silver) CB. Since your voltage is staying rather steady at the battery and you are completely losing it at your devices there certainly is something in the line that is opening. I had one buried deep inside an electrical box on a previous RV. Could not bring the slide in. Brand new rv too. Luckily I had my handy voltmeter and with brute strength and ignorance I sorted it out. You basically need to follow every inch either from your battery or from one of the devices back. However with multiple devices they all should lead back to some sort of fuse panel. At the fuse panel you probably have two input sources, one from your Converter (which does not exhibit the problem when connected to shoreline), and your battery input wire. Can you find a schematic for your rv?

RE: Asking the cooks! I need new microwave.....

The trick to a convection oven is using it. If you don't use it, you'll never learn the conversions. Everything cooks better in a convection oven, simply because the oven cooks more evenly. Induction cooktops are great too. Boiling water in under a minute sold me. Ditto: I suspect most people don't take the time to get to know how a convection/microwave works. Even the shape of the dishes can make a difference. Lazy Daze in Tampa has an amazing chef that gives lessons. He takes one off the shelf and plug it in to demonstrate some amazing things, Dual cooking is really helpful but as mentioned, you need to know the basics. Just using it as a conventional oven for baking potatoes for example is simple and just like any other oven. Cooking a cake can lead to some burned corners etc if not done with the proper pans.

RE: Need Help Finding Electrical Problem

You have refreshed some old old memories of my first 1989 Class C. Brand new and the house battery took forever to charge. I now remember it isolated the battery and only charged it at 3 amps. What a pain that was. I added a ten amp charger but that was still wimpy. It sure got cold in Colorado when the heater ran out of battery power.

RE: Need Help Finding Electrical Problem

With the ignition on there is likely a solenoid that combines both banks of batteries. So your refer and house battery is seeing the engine battery voltage plus the charging voltage if connected to shoreline. IF your house battery is bad then removing the path from the engine battery may see the house battery voltage going to near zero if it is really dead. Check your house battery voltage without the key on or shoreline connected. If you find it to be ok, plug back into shoreline and take the measurement again, then turn the ignition switch on and take that measurement. Write them down as you go. It is easy to get derailed taking a lot of measurements. This could be a simple automatic resetting circuit breaker not functioning. With those measurements we should be able to sort it out quickly.
